We have dined all over the world and I can unequivocally say that the food, service and ambiance at RingSide Steakhouse was the best. I planned a party for 8 and the accommodating staff simply took over and met every need and want including a gorgeous Birthday cake. The wine service, food quality and quantity exceeded all expectations.
Thank you RingSide!!

We were disappointed with our meal--both the food quality and the server. It was our first visit and a rather expensive meal (dont mind paying if I fell the food and service are great). We will not be back any time soon.

The iconic Ringside doesn't rest on its laurels. We went for Valentine's day; I'm not much of a meat eater but when in Portland....my waiter, Colin, was able to direct me to a cut of meat that wouldn't be destroyed by cooking it well done, my request. The rib eye was delicious and my boyfriend's prime rib came out as rare as he requested. The green salad was tasteless but generous. The rice pilaf was good. The fresh horseradish and the creamy horseradish were both bracing and delicious, even with my steak. I appreciated being accommodated with a half glass of wine after generous tastes of a few. We were too full for dessert but were pleasantly surprised by the boxed mini chocolate cupcakes sent with us as we left. I especially appreciated the other server who problem solved the dilemma of bringing in my leftover dinner to a Smokey Robinson concert by packaging it next to a closed container of ice. The staff really knows how to make guests feel welcome and well fed.

Thank you all for such a wonderful experience. As a family we came to the Ringside when I was growing upend it was always my favorite. The place and the food and service down to the valets were fabulous. I took the women I’m in love with and it was just perfect and I think it helped our situation. Thank you again!

Overall experience was great! I wish they didn’t bring out the steak on a sizzling plate though. The steak was cooked perfectly when it arrived but because the cast iron plate was so hot, it ended up overlooking my steak due to lack of resting time..

RingSide Steakhouse is absolutely the best place in town to have a guaranteed Top Notch steak and service second to none. And dining here since a child and my parents before me and we have never had anything less than a five star perfect experience.

The prime rib was maybe the best ever...perfect...the horseradish always premium...the only letdown was the Yorkshire pudding...a very difficult item to master...the Yorki should be as baked inside as outside...mine was undercooked inside....bottom...mushy...I liked the top half....house salad was a full serving of delicious garden freshness...the creme brûlée perfect as always... service was delightful. Tkanks Ringside. UR the best.

If there was a six star rating it would be this place. Every time we are here it just gets better. Shared the small seafood tower and a wedge (dressing is to die for) and then had the bone-in ribeye for two. One of the top 5 steaks we ever had. Topped it off with lobster mashed potatoes. Scott was outstanding and we just can’t say enough. This has to be on your to go list when in Portland

We try to make it to the RingSide at least annually and it’s always maintained its fabulous quality: great steak, wonderful wine, and a comfortable atmosphere. This time was no exception. One of the top ten restaurants I’ve been to, and consistently so over the decades.

We like the Ringside but were disappointed that those that ordered the ribeye found it to be tough and not edible. Had to replace those dinners with another steak. Also the lobster mashed potatoes not to our liking. Service was good and manger adjusted our bill and served us champagne to make it up to us as it was a celebration birthday dinner that was not up to our expectations.

Food was excellent and plenty. We have both had 2 additional dinners out of our “to go.” Gave 4 stars because service was almost too often. Gave 4 stars for ambiance because table of 4 men had loud, booming voice. We probably should have moved. Really excellent. A Portland icon.

I’ve had many a prime rib dinner, the one at Ringside was one of my worst ever. Should have had a steak, my wife enjoyed her fillet. Doubt we’ll return, quality of my meal the deciding factor, when you spend well in excess of $100.00 for dinner it would be nice to feel satisfied.

We were there to celebrate my brother and I Birthday. Our waitress Kathy waited on us. My brother has a special diet and asked questions about the menu,and Kathy seemed very short with him,and rolled her eyes several times. She was quick with answers and getting on to the next table was more important. We talked about moving to a different waitress but we thought we should not cause a problem. We do not eat at the Ringside very often and this was a very special occasion,and over all it was the service that we were very disappointed in!

Food,service and ambiance is always nice but would suggest that management arrange seating better. We had an early 5:45 reservation and it seemed that they set all early arrivals in front of a large table of at least 12 with small screaming children in the party. The large party was early and perhaps they could of set other later arrivals away and still turned their stations. The large party left shortly before us. Otherwise we always have enjoyed or experience at Ringside.

The RingSide is a perfect place for memories to be made surrounding a special occasion. The ambiance is classic, the service impeccable, and the food delicious, if not a bit pricey. I don't mind paying the upcharge rate for food for an exceptional result. This visit, however, I found my bone-in rib steak a bit too tough for the melt-in-your-mouth experience I have come to expect from the dry-aged meats that are the specialy of the RingSide and usually make the restaurant stand out from the rest.
