Best steaks in town! And unlike other premium steak houses, they include a side with your steak. And they have the best onion rings!
And, although expensive, still less than other local premium steak houses.
We love the Ringside!! Nick the waiter was Fabulous! We live in California and come twice a year!
Steak was perfect
Everything was perfect the service was awesome, everyone was nice professional and friendly. 5 star service
We have loved Ringside for years! It's the best steakhouse in Oregon by far. The steaks are melt in your mouth, the onion rings are a must and anything you order is going to be done to perfection. If you order a medium steak, it will be pink in the middle, but not bloody. If you order it medium-rare, it will be pink with pink juices. The ambiance is old school. Frank and Dean may walk in at any moment to sit at their favorite table. However, this place will take you as you are, dressed to the nines or after a round or golf. This is one of the best restaurants in Portland and it has been around a long time as proof. It will tax your wallet, but it is worth it.
Everything tasted great. The bread is fresh and warm, and the butter is good. All the cocktails I've tried there are delicious. The salmon was cooked just right.
Incredible food, exceptional service, great ambiance
Great food and great service. We will definitely be back. The lobster mashed potatoes were unbelievably good.
Went for Birthday dinner - fantastic as always.
Our server was extremely attentive without being too obvious. We took our daughter out for her Birthday and were pleased with the ambiance as well as the presentation of our food. The steaks were absolutely perfect and the rest of the meal was wonderful, too. Thanks for a great dinner!
Wow Ringside out did themselves once again and we couldn’t have been happier! We arrived and were greeted by three very polite and enthusiastic Employees.
We were seated at a table, water arrived and then our server stopped by to see if we wanted any cocktails. Of course it was my partners birthday so we had pineapple slushy and Moscow Mule Shandy!
We were served the best rolls with butter , our drinks and we each ordered a Wedge Salad, yummy it was!
Our entrees were incredible 8oz. Filet Mignon served with a very nice baked potato trimmings and all!
They brought the Birthday Boy a beautiful Creme Brûlée and me the Chocolate Pan-a Cotta topped with raspberries and very thinly sliced Orange Peel.
Thanks again Ringside for a wonderful birthday dinner and experience with your wonderful staff and Restaurant!
We will be back!

This was the first time we’ve ever been disappointed with the food overall . The bar gin and tonic was a rather weak and had flat tonic plus the onion rings were overly cooked and dry, one could hardly taste the onions ( poor onion quality? ) then the salad and dressings were just so so. ( we had the Monday night early bird Prime rib special) . Although the Prime Rib was tender and well prepared it was tasteless with almost no meaty goodness or flavored seasoning. Then the baked potato was merely luke warm and would barely melt the butter, for a baked potato it was just not soft, hot yummy and flakey. The sauces and desert were very good. Over all we didn’t think the food was up to its usual outstanding standards and wondered if it were because as a Monday 3 course Prine Rib special it didn't rate overall special attention? But everything including the usual great bar drinks and onion rings were nothing to celebrate or rave about; perhaps there was only a mediocre chief on Mondays sometimes heard not to dine out on Monday’s or perhaps the cook staff were just too busy? It was packed at 6 pm. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and we’re always happy to come to the Prime Rib West Steakhouse as it’s been one of our favorite places if not our most favorite place to din especially when celebrating!
40th anniversary party 7 family members. Great food server was a bit busy but ok...not 5 star.
When you spend nearly a grand on a meal it needs to be tops in all areas...they gotta always be asking...more bread hows this hows that...all in all great I would do it again...maybe at 50..I love the Ringside.
Fantastic Steaks!! Great atmosphere, excellent service!! We will be going back!
Excellent service along with great food and nicely paced meal made for a lovely evening at this Portland landmark. Thanks !
Execellent and incredible food! The hospitality is the best!
More than we hope for! Amazing food, wine and the best service ever! We will be sure to be back again soon...
The experience was horrible. Had called ahead to alert them this was a special occasion. Arrived and was seated at the kitchen door. Horrible table. Talked with a manager and he then moved us to an acceptable table. Table service was poor. Food was unremarkable. Prime Rib full of fat. Steaks just average. For the price this should be much better.
I cannot recommend and that’s unfortunate.
Whenever we visit Portland this is a place we must go to. It’s one of our favorites. This last time the service and experience was off. Drinks came out late and mixed up, dinners did not come out together and dessert was slow coming out. One of our guests had not been given their soup and we had to flag someone down. The toffee was much thinner than usual too, more chocolate than toffee. Our table of 6 had been there before and noticed these problems. We will come back when we are in the area again and hope to get the great service we are use to.
Always exceeds expectations! Salmon was outstanding!
Sat down right away. Greeted right away. Went down hill from there. Food came out slow. Steaks under cooked, sent back, took forever, all it needed was 2-3 more minutes on the grill. Came back as steak jerky, well over cooked. They cooked another one. Took forever. Came out, was much better, however, everyone else was done, I was full from eating the new baked potatoes they kept bringing me each time out.
There is simply no other steakhouse in Portland that compares to the Ringside. We have been going for over 30 years on special occasions and whenever else we can and it never disappoints. The food, service, atmosphere are all perfect for a great dinner.
Wonderful! Best meal and service in town. I always love this place. The steak melts in your mouth and the onion rings are the bomb. . It’s such a treat. Waiter Steve is #1 in my book.
Had an amazing birthday at Ringside!
Susan is a PRO and took excellent care of us.
It was my 1st time there and I WILL be back (many times).
Thank you for being a SHINING STAR in Portland (where ‘service’ barely exists)!
Another great dinner at Ringside. Amazing steaks, wedge salad and onion rings!! Our favorite steakhouse in the NW!
Very sad, we dine at Ringside and look forward to the exceptional service but it was far from that tonight. From an employee bumping my husbands chair over 4x’s, not having the salad chopped like requested, and condiments delivered to our table that didn’t go with our meal and our anniversary being ignored. Usually great service and a happy anniversary but NOTHING tonight. I guess we will be have exploring other steak houses.
The service was amazing, and the wait staff was EXTREMELY attentive. I ordered the three-course meal with surf and turf, and it was outstanding.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner
Service and food was top notch, as I have come to expect from Ringside.
One of the best restaurants in Portland! Always great service from the valets, to hosts, to waitstaff! The steaks, prime rib and seafood are Excellent..and the desserts aren't bad either :) Better save room! This Portland staple has been around for many years and has the fireplace, dark interior you would find in an old NY steakhouse, but Ringside keeps it fresh! This is like a little mini vacay from your life! Enjoy!
One of the best meals I have ever had in my life. The food and service were excellent. The cost was expected, but a bit expensive. The dark atmosphere was quite different from the out of doors where the sun was shining brightly. I really enjoyed the meal and our server was amazing.
Our server, William was superb. What a pleasure to have someone who listened to our needs and help us order exactly what we wanted. Our food came quickly, and our main meal arrived steaming hot which we really appreciated. All we can say is everything was great food and service.:-)
Excellent food and beverage; quiet conversation; wonderful steak house for a special occasion.
Amazing Food, Wine list, and Service was Excellent!
Wonderful food and service.
This place is serious about delivering the best customer experience.
We enjoyed the. Memorial weekend special dinner. Great service from Kelli.
Pricey if you don’t go with specials, yet very high quality. Atmosphere a little dated, by great for older generation.
One of the best restaurants I’ve ever been too and the experience was unforgettable. Our waiter Colin was tremendous and the cut of meat couldn’t have been better. We were treated to Champagne and felt so special going there for our special day
