We went to ringside steakhouse to celebrate my husband‘s birthday. We were not disappointed. The service was exceptional and the food was very good. We each had a New York steak and some amazing prawns. The salad was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend coming here for special occasions!

I was disappointed. A $400 dinner for four people. Two meals were terrible, halibut and a filet that was undercooked by a mile. Two meals were good. For the price these meals should have been perfect. I have always loved the Ringside but I fear they are falling in expertise, customer care, and food preparation. I have purchased USDA Prime ribeye's, cooked them myself, and had a much better steak than the one I received here, and it was a good meal, but not especially spectacular as you would expect. I will have to think twice before I return.

My steak was undercooked for how I ordered but still good flavor. The spicy octopus was out of this world.

We had outside seating in their newly opened and fully covered/heated area behind the restaurant. The service was impeccable, as always, and the selection of steaks and accompanies was perfect, as always, starting with the James Beard recommended onion rings. We'll definitely plan to come back the next time we're visiting in Portland.

RingSide has been promoting "Prime Rib Wednesdays" for some time. Three course dinner for $43 per plate. I love prime rib, so we made a reservation for Wednesday at 7:45 PM (earliest available). We arrived on time and waited in a crowded lobby for 15-20 minutes before our table was available. When we started to order the prime rib special, we were told they were out of prime rib. So we ordered off of the regular menu, which is excellent, but far more expensive. With wine and tip, our total came to $290. It wasn't so much the price difference that bothered me as it was the disappointment at not getting my favorite prime rib! I'm not sure how you could run out of prime rib at a steak restaurant when you are promoting it on a certain night. Oh well....

This was a bit of an impromptu date night. We love Ringside planned date or impromptu one. Sat in the bar this time and it had been awhile since we had done that. So nice to have the same amazing quality of food and service, yet watching the Sunday Night Football game.

We had a young waiter. He seemed inexperienced and was not very welcoming. We are so used to your seasoned servers as we have come to the Ringside for years. We had Scott wait on us this summer and he was incredible. Our server never asked if we wanted another cocktail or if we wanted bread with our salad. We had wine and cocktails and onion rings and steaks. A 400 dollar plus bill My husband and I split a Caesar which amounted to two bites for each of us. My ribeye had lots of fat. He never asked if we wanted dessert but brought a creme brûlée with a candle and stopped and said “ oh whose bday is it?” And then put it infront of my husband I had written i about his bday on my reservation and had confirmed my reservation Thursday. Of course we will be back. The Ringside is a special place. I just had wished it had been up to par this past Saturday evening. We had a party of 6 and we were there to celebrate.

Three of our party of eight had to have our steak orders returned due to being under cooked to our order. We each had told the server we wanted it served “pink, not red” and was informed we should order it medium. We received rare steaks, had our whole meal taken back to the kitchen to finish cooking. Which left 3 of our party of 8 without food while our dinner mates ate. Our meals took about five minutes before being returned to us. Mine was still too rare on one end but I could just eat around that part and I wasn’t going to return my meal again and be left eating alone. I’ve been coming to Ringside for almost 40 years and this is the first time it wasn’t perfect. We did make the best of this situation, given the great group of friends we were having dinner. The other shortcoming on this visit was when a server filled my husbands half empty drink (long island) with water, and didn’t correct the issue.

Wonderful food and atmosphere. My husband and I came here for the first time when we were just dating (first trip together) and 13 years came back with our now 10yo kid and my mom. Excellent steak! Thanks for the renewal of our memory … the food is just as great as it was 13 years ago.

Let me start by saying I love ringside, I’ve been coming for years. Hands down the best steakhouse in portland. I have low scores for this reason…. I ordered the lobster mash and potatoes were definitely very cold. I also ordered the 16 oz prime rib eye, and while it was cooked well the beef tasted spoiled. There was an abundance of staff there but I felt like we were being prowled over. Was hard to have a conversation with my wife because they kept asking every 2 minutes and looking over our plates to try and take our dishes we were still picking at. I can appreciate great service but this was overly excessive, literally as one walked away another would walk up.

Our waiter was very rude. The food was not very good. The prime rib was served with a muffin thing that was burnt and had a whole in the middle of it. It was really crowded. For 2 of us to have a small salad, a piece of prime rib, an unedible burnt muffin, and 1 drink each, our bill was $122. Could have went to Black Angus and had bigger and better meal for $80. Wont be going back to Ringside again. Very unhappy because I have always wanted to go there.
