Decided to try out the local flare on our trip into Portland. Valet parking which is a necessity in Portland. Reservations are a must to be seated when you want to dine. Steaks were good but the sides were amazing. Our waiter, Jake, was exceptional...More

Ringside has such great promise but hits a wall in food quality, ambience and service. They make a great attempt to be an old school steakhouse with the dark ambience surrounded by candlelight. The problem is that it is way too dark. Many guests are...More
