Great Food, EXCELLENT Service

Had a great dinner at the Ringside. I try and hit the top steakhouses in each city I visit, and the Ringside certainly ranks. My steak was excellent, the side we ordered not quite as good. However, it was the service that really impressed me. VERY attentive, without being overbearing. The... read more

Ambiance was good and staff very friendly. Our server, Liz, was very knowledgeable and cheerful. We were seated within 15 minutes of arriving at a perfectly sized table for 5. Service was prompt and professional. Disappointed with the crab cakes, though others at the table liked them. (They're from Ohio, so not sure they know a good crab cake!) It... More

I've been eating here for over 30 years and while pricey it's worth it's rating as one of America's top independent steak houses. The food is top notch. Because it's Portland the seafood is excellent (I live on the coast so I'm a seafood snob) and the service is usually personal and charming. Those who say it "isn't what is... More

We had a great dinner Sunday night and great service. Got us in and feed in time so we could get to our Broadway show and still didn't make us feel rushed. Plus still had time for coffee. As alway great steak and old school Portland.

While on business in Portland, we had an opportunity to hit Portland's best restaurants. Certainly, Portland can boast the country's most diverse and inspired food scene. For our final evening, we chose the Ringside. Old school steakhouse dining at its finest. Valet attendant was professional and host and waitstaff are well-trained and attentive. The menu was what you expect from... More

Waited in bar for an hour for a table while Barman Jimmy entertained everyone there, he's a tonic! I ordered from set menu $49.99 for 3 courses, had gorgeous french onion soup for starters, and steak with prawns & garlic mashed potatoes for main course which was terrible, both the steak and prawns were totally overcooked and bone dry. Dessert... More

Been frequenting Ringside for 40+ years since a child. Had not visited since their renovation and to my shegrin not much has changed other than they have created more room for seating in the dining room and bar and the portions have gotten smaller and more expensive. Business is business and to stay in business you have to make money.... More

Ringside Steakhouse is awesome and never disappoints, and I have been there MANY times, as well as recommended it to many people. The food is always superb; the service excellent by the real professional servers and bartenders, and the ambiance is cozy and intimate, especially in the main dining room that has the old, homemade river rock fireplace, built by...

This longtime Portland restaurant never fails to impress. My first visit was over 50 years ago with my grandfather. My most recent visit was last evening. From the valet to bus person, every staff member was genuinely welcoming and polite. The Ringside is known for their steaks. However, the lamb chops and duck breast are also wonderful. Indulge in a... More

If you're looking for primo service and incredible food, make a reservation at the Ringside Steakhouse. Waiters in tuxedos, exhaustive wine selection (let your server direct you, they are very knowledgeable, ) top class all the way. I strongly suggest the lobster mashed potatoes. Not always on the menu but they will prepare it for you. And their onion rings... More
