RingSide Fish House - Fox Tower Ratings and Reviews
Had dinner to celebrate a birthday. The staff did an amazing job of making the evening special, from having a personalized hand written card at the table upon our arrival, to a complimentary birthday desert with a candle and birthday message. Ringside is top notch and will become a go to for us moving forward.
We had been to Ringside Fish House for happy hour, which is fun, but this was our first time in for a formal dinner. The service was impeccable. The cocktails are well-crafted, and there are some nice wines offered by the glass in addition to a very nice bottle list. The true test was the food, and they aced it! The dishes were very creative - the perfectly cooked seared scallops were served on a bed of rich, creamy carrot risotto with sugar snap peas and carrot top pesto - to die for! The roasted sole dish was served with a lovely chive broth, tiny rockfish dumplings, and roasted radishes and maitake mushrooms - light and fresh with clean, beautiful flavors. The generous entrees, along with the Pearl Bakery bread and butter, were the perfect amount of food. The dishes are spendy enough to keep this from being an everyday dining spot for us, but we will definitely be back!
always one of our most favorite stops when we are in Portland. We continue to return. never disappointed.
The service is always incredibly terrific.
The food is always perfect.
We changed our reservation multiple times for Easter Sunday.
Dinner, and the staff was always most gracious and took care of us, with grace.
WE WILL BE BACK
Everything was great, except I ordered my King Salmon medium rare and it was served "well done" and as a result was dry. Ruined a good piece of King Salmon. I should have returned it but I wanted to eat with the rest of my party.
I would have rated everything as a five if it wasn't for my entre.
The service was excellent. We cannot say enough about how attentive the staff was to every detail of our meal. The appetizers were wonderful and the entrees were more than we expected in quality. Altogether a great restaurant. We will make this one of our regular haunts.
Had an exceptional experience here. The service, the food, and the surroundings were all above expectations. My friend and I wanted to take our time and linger over each course, Nick and his support staff were very accommodating. Attentive , but not hovering. All our needs and special requests were met with a smile. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
We were completely surprised by how good our meals were. My rockfish was superbly prepared in a delicate broth with cloud like dumplings. The onion rings are of course fantastic. I was excited to see a Pegu Club on the cocktail menu - tasty, classic and reasonably priced. The menu was inventive and expertly delivered. The wine list had a few unusual bottles at reasonable prices - another pleasant surprise. This place moves to the top for pre-theater downtown dining. It's not at all what you'd expect from a downtown office tower. Go.
Lobster was under cooked, meal was cold. Way to much salt was a big problem with the food. Service was slow and waiter forgot melted butter x2 and tried to sell his own wine to us. That made me feel uncomfortable. His nice attitude felt forced. It's not the ringside that I once remembered as one of my top five restaurants.
Our first impression of RingSide Fish House was the wave of noise that washed over us as we stepped from the elevator. Under other circumstances we would have gotten back into the elevator and left, but it was my husband's birthday and I'd promised him Maine lobster tail. At $50, the lobster with gnocchi was quite good and not especially over-priced. I had the Portland Dining Month special 3 course. To give the restaurant credit, there was no skimping on portions, as has been reported at other places. The soup d'jour (creamed squash) was a little on the spicy side but beautifully prepared and presented. The Medallions of Beef, on the other hand, ordered medium rare, ranged from medium well to very well done and was unexpectedly chewy. I chose the options of added prawns for $9 and was not disappointed as all three were fine. The primary problem was that there was absolutely nothing out of the ordinary about any of the flavors, preparations, or presentation of the dish. My overall evaluation is that for the prices on the menu, there are quite a number of alternative dining choices where better food can be had for similar or better prices.
We were looking for a place for fish and the hotel recommended Ringside. The food was good but the salmon one of us ordered was not as fresh as we would have wanted. It was a little early in the season for fresh salmon so a different choice would have been better. All the other food was good. Miguel was our waiter and he has very friendly. The service was good.
Lunch is always a treat at Ringside Fish House. Service is outstanding, and David, our server yesterday, made sure our menu choices were on the spot. Their menu has a lot of great choices, which means it's worth a repeat visit just to sample other items. The Hostess and the Manager both stopped by to say hello and to make sure all was well. That's 'caring about the customer to the nth degree'!
Can hardly wait to return. I love their steamers, fish and chips, onion rings, and grilled salmon to name a few.
Top spot in downtown Portland!
We came from a matinee at the Keller and had 5 pm reservations. Were seated promptly and were one of only two tables occupied at that time. We had noted in our reservation that we had one gluten intolerant diner but our waiter was not able to answer any questions about the menu and had to keep running back to the chef for answers. No notations on menu or gf menu were available. We spent about 15 mins waiting for all gf questions to be answered and ordered our soup. By the time we got the soup the rest of the tables were filling up. Our soup came fairly promptly, but by 6:25 we still had not been served our entree. Note: we had been seated since 5 pm! Every table had been served way before we got ours and they had all come in after we had! Food was pretty good but the wait was way too long. Glad we were coming in after the play and not before because it would have been pretty stressful not knowing if we would be out in time.
We have loved their bar and happy hour in the past and had dinner once before. This time we showed up an hour early for our reservation at 8:15pm. We were not seated until 8:30 and then it took a long time between courses such that we were there past 11. I get a dining experience but this was just comically slow. The charcutterie plate was mostly bad with small salty/ musty portions. We ordered the "taste of Portland" medallions of beef and added prawns which included soup and dessert. Soup was salty and greasy. Prawns were small and salty. The meat was well-prepared but salty. Theme: salty food. With a few drinks, over $150. Other than a drink in the bar, We won't return with the amazing dining choices in Portland. FYI, not that picky but just not good.
The service stands out here. Someone will take your coat before you sit down, water glasses and bread baskets stay filled, and concerns get addressed promptly. They take their fish seriously-- I had a wonderful selection of fresh oysters to start. My girlfriend had fresh halibut which was cooked to perfection. I had lobster tail which I found to be somewhat underdone but it was served with an incredible squash risotto. I noted on the comment card that the lobster was underdone and the manager came to see me immediately to discuss. I offered that perhaps the chef simply had a different vision for lobster than what I am used to, and the manager suggested that perhaps they need to reconsider the recipe. While I probably won't order the lobster again, I would go back in heartbeat as the food and service is done with wonderful care.
