This is easily Portland's best steakhouse all things considered. The restaurant has a very classic feel and the service is second to none. The steaks are excellent and they have all the classic cuts you'd expect, all of which have always been perfectly prepared when we visit. In addition to the steaks, they make excellent use of the Pacific Northwest's abundant resources and offer excellent fresh seafood (my favorite appetizer is the seafood platter which includes crab legs and huge oysters). The Ringside also has an excellent wine list and a small but good draft beer list. Cocktails have been hit or miss in the past although they have always been quick to make amends if something was amiss with my drink. All in all, this is a great steakhouse and truly a Portland institution.
