Steaks are not soft and juicy nor are they marbled which is what really makes a steak great. They are way overrated and over priced for what you get. Anyone who thinks this is the best steak place in Portland obviously never had a good steak or they are so used to eating their partners cooking that everything tastes good.... More

Yep, it seems like something out of the past, dark, with waiters dressed in coat and tie. Exceptional wine menu, waiters who know how to decant, and who can comment knowledgably on the nose. The outstanding feature is the steak itself. The prime filet was cooked to perfection and strikingly tasty compared to the usual better chain steakhouses. Excellent salads,... More

Went here a few nights ago and had a very good steak. Had the filet and some really good onion rings. They have a great wine list with some definite splurge options but also some really good and reasonably priced wines as well. We went with the Turley Zinfandel. I would certainly go back here.

Service, Service and more service in the traditional style of elegant steakhouses in Chicago, San Francisco, Houston or New York City. The food is well prepared and well presented. A real treat.

This restaurant was heavily recommended to us and we were very happy with our experience. My husband and I split the wedge salad to start. Then we shared a filet with mashed potatoes, steel head fish and sides of mushrooms and Brussel sprouts. Everything was cooked correctly. The only thing we didn't love was the Brussel sprouts. The server even... More

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
