We sat at the bar, the bartender is very entertaining. The oysters are great but the calamari is unbelievable. It's not bread but grilled and very tasty.

The restaurant looks over a park which was very nice. The wait staff were very professional. The food was absolutely marvelous! The cocktails were special. Our wait staff were very attentive. We enjoyed the experience on our anniversary and it felt very romantic!

Went here with a group of family and friends. It is on the 2nd level overlooking the square. The service was excellent with our waiter being extremely helpful. The menu selection whilst not huge is excellent. We had a mix of meat and fish and we all enjoyed our meals. Would certainly recommend this restaurant for a nice meal.

This restaurant is on the top of our "go to list" for special occasions. The view of the city is always engaging, as is the wait staff and the menu. Fish dishes are always approached with finesse... you actually 'TASTE' the flavors of the fish as well as whatever the sauce of the moment happens to be. Ambiance is a... More

We really wanted to enjoy Ringside Fish House but must admit that we were really put off by the hostess and her choice of seating for us. Seems that though there were many available tables we were promptly placed at the least desirable table in an area directly next to the kitchen entryway-noisy and busy to say the least. We... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended Ringside. We were very happy with the recommendation. Great ambience, great service, great food! We ordered the drink special, recommended by our server. Awesome place to visit, lovely décor!

From the time we were seated and waiter, Jeffrey, arrived, we knew this would be a great experience. Surf and Turf on the 3-course menu was amazing--large shrimps and perfectly cooked steak slices. The halibut was delish, served on a bed of veggies. And for dessert? Try the profiteroles stuffed with goat cheese cheesecake. Are you kidding? How could you... More

The original RingSide has been an establishment for over 70 years and still has the best steak, but taking that talent to a new location, specializing in fish done just perfectly and a younger wait staff, open, glass filled dinning room with great light show outside (especially at sunset) and creative desserts makes this the prefect place to impress your...

I have to say, I have had a LOT of salmon over the years, but this was absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked. Let's face it, you are in the heart of the northwest, so salmon it is. The only downside here was that we had a window seat early in the evening and the sun was blasting through the window,... More
