I use to go often especially happy hour but lately the quality of the food has not been to the high par they advertise and the service has not been good.

You walk in the door and are instantly transported back...way back. The kind of back that you kind of expect Frank Sinatra to be sitting at a table. This restaurant has a cozy vibe, white table cloths, a large stone fireplace and a lot of character...it's one of Porland's oldest steakhouses after all. We had the prime rib and also... More

Had a wonderful dinner at Ringside Steakhouse. Very historic building. Valet parking. My dining companion is a wine gal so she was thrilled with the selection. I ordered a diet coke which seemed to upset my server just a bit. I tried to explain I do not like wine but he kept that sour look on his face. Why serve... More

To begin with, I can't say enough about Susan, our server, and the rest of the wait staff. She was pleasant, informative, attentive (but not overly so) and ensured that each course arrived at the proper time. I wish I could say as much for the kitchen staff. I'll start with the positive - my daughter's sirloin steak was fantastic... More

Hadn't been in since the remodel and for however many millions they spent looks close to the same. too many tables packed in so tough to talk, but that what you get when you go there. They are a model of consistency. Always good food always good service and always very expensive. Waiter was exceptional jovial fun and kept it... More

This is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Portland. It has a nice ambiance and the service was good. However the food wasn't worth the price. One of our soups came cold and had the be sent back. The medium well steak was underdone and the medium rare steak was overdone. They were ok but no better... More

Everybody knows about the great steak here - for the United States, this really is quite good beef. However, what doesn't get mentioned nearly as often is that this is Portland's most amazing Late Night Happy Hour. Prices are insanely reasonable, the ambiance is still fantastic, and the crowd is warm but not obnoxious. Can't miss.

I probably would have liked the heavy fried and thick-sauced steaks back in the 70s, but my tastes have changed to prefer a lighter touch and I prefer seasonings that bring out the flavor of the food rather than mask it. I am not a fan of giant, greasy onion rings and found the steak oversalted and not to my... More

Amazing steaks, amazing service, amazing restaurant and amazing atmosphere. We have been so impressed with quality of steaks that we have visited the restaurant 3 times in the past month. We can't get enough of this restaurant.

Great atmosphere, service and value for money. The filet mignon was magical and so was the mashed potatoes. Everything from when you park your car and walk out of the restaurant is as good as it gets. Not much else to say, it's a must to visit when in Portland. Best restaurant in Oregon!
