We had a wonderful Mother’s Day dinner at Ringside. Scott was absolutely amazing! So attentive, friendly, and helpful. Kristen the Som was delightful and knowledgeable. Our food was fabulous!

Our waiter Collin was great and the meal was delicious. We sat in the covered patio (which has plenty of heaters) and had a great time. We will be back. Thank you!

The filet was the best ever. Only reason for not giving a 5 star is that our favorite onion rings- were not good- didn’t look good/didn’t taste good. Later ones coming out of the kitchen- looked a lot better.

Outside dining there is the beautiful and relaxing. Service 5 ⭐️

The Oregon gov continues to punish the restaurant industry with irrational and illogical restrictions, yet Ringside is surviving and implementing creative ways for people to experience their great restaurant. I'm happy I was able to support our local favorite and I'm proud of the Ringside organization for working so hard to stay open during such a difficult time.

Dinner, cocktails and service were incredible in their surprisingly lovely outdoor space!! Like being in a garden room yet with hardwood floors and all the fine dining touches of white table cloths and napkins. Had to be their best steaks ever. William was serving- all in all a 10 for the night. Thank you.

Special night. Got in a day before another shutdown. What can go wrong at Ringside? Nothing! It hasn't been here for 75 years without earning our love every visit. Seafood prep is as good as the great selection and preparation of steaks.

I took my wife there because she had a poorly cooked steak at another restaurant and I wanted to "gift" her with excellence. We have always love Ringside and it is our go to for when we want outstanding food. Unfortunately, this time they failed. We both ordered rare - mine came out medium rare and hers medium. I expected better from a Steak House. The meat was good quality but the cook was so far off that it made the $200 bill a little hard to swallow.

As it always does, dinner at Ringside this visit exceeded expectations. My wife and I shared the Ribeye for two which was sliced and served table side. Perhaps the best steak I’ve ever had. Oysters to start, delicious. Cocktails were perfect. COVID protocols in place made us feel comfortable dining indoors. Our waiter Scott did his usual fantastic job. Looking forward to our next visit already.

Any culinary "institution", especially an aspirationally-priced one, has to nurture its reputation by doing right by the diners and staff. Ringside was firing on all cylinders this visit, converting parking-lot space into a wood-floored, ivy-walled, covered patio that exceeded social distancing mandates while keeping the ambiance and energy flowing. The staff were all on-point, the kitchen knocked my meal (Prime filet and all) out of the park, and I even got to chat about wine (from a safe distance) with some nearby diners. The take-out seafood was a hit at home too. In a sad regime where many restaurants have faltered or folded altogether during pandemic, Ringside has figured out how to flourish.

Everything was really good but forced to wear a mask whenever a server is near your table is a bridge too far. There’s safety then there’s ridiculous, and they have reached ridiculous.

Great food and service, impressive ambiance - we loved the decoration & music. Definitely a five-star dining experience, perfect for romantic dinners and special occasions. A bit expensive, but worth it. It doesn't look that upscale from the outside, but inside is a different world (we felt like we should have dressed accordingly). Highly recommend large onion rings, USDA prime filet mignon, and garlic mashed potatoes.

A great institution has declined. Meat quality is not the same. Steak overcooked. Sides were mediocre. Menu has been cut in half. Prices are up. Very disappointed, as we have loved the Ringside for generations.
