RingSide Fish House - Fox Tower Ratings and Reviews
Excellent dinner. Oysters were fresh, onion rings excellent (a must), and appetizers were abundant, tasty, and fresh. The main courses were creative but my scallops were a bit on the greasy side. The wines are good but on the expensive side.
The atmosphere was good but the room (fully occupied) a bit noisy. The service was excellent but a bit slow due to the full attendance.
This restaurant is well located in downtown Portland. You can park at the car Park and have your ticket validated by the restaurant.
Outstanding service - we waited for our food just a little longer than expected and a complimentary glass of wine appeared. The tuna poke appetizer was as good as anything I've had in Hawaii and the cioppino rivaled - well, I'd probably better not mention another outstanding restaurant's bouillabaise...
Very, very good.
My husband and I enjoyed our first time visit to Ringside Fish House. The service was great. We had plenty of time to make our theater showtime. He had the salmon with spring vegetables and I had the halibut. Both were wonderful. We then had the Banana Foster Bar and the Park Avenue Bar for dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Overall, good experience. My steak was over done, but still acceptable. The king crab legs were much smaller than usual, but still tasty. The steamer clams were a bit more complex in flavor than originally imagined; thus, very few were consumed. Service was decent, nothing stellar but seemingly appropriate. Desserts were lack luster - no one raved about them. We have been there several times and this was our worst experience at the restaurant, but we will be back.
Had a fantastic meal. David, our server, was very good, and both the Hostess, Dia, and mgr. Lola stopped by to make sure all was good. Can't say enough about how great this place is.
Super martini, also.
Will return very soon, as it is our favorite place in Portland.
Wonderful experience. Food was yummy. My scallops were perfectly cooked over a bed of risotto. Both halibut and salmon my friends ordered were also extremely good. And it's quiet enough for conversations. Services was also superb. Just enough attention but not overpowering. Will definitely return.
We had a fabulous dinner!!!!! My husband ordered the Halibut on porcini cream and it was out of this world, best halibut he has ever had!!!! I had the swordfish appetizer special and it to was delicious!!! Our waiter was excellent. We had a great evening!!!
We had a wonderful time. We tried some new dishes and beverages. Our waiter was knowledgeable and fun to talk to. He gave guidance when asked. Actually all the staff were helpful. The front reception informed us of any changes and we're especially helpful to hold flowers we had brought and put them on the table. We all enjoyed our meal
Our dinner reservation was an hour and 45 minutes before a show at the Arlene Schnitzer concert hall (less than 5 minute walk from the restaurant) and even though we told them multiple times and they confirmed they knew, our entree's did not come out until 5 minutes to 7. We wolfed our food down, missed dessert entirely and were still late to our show. They cut our bill in half to make up for it, but it still made for a stressful and unpleasant situation.
Hostess was friendly and welcoming. Waiter was great to interact with. We ordered the rockfish and the salmon. While the accompaniments for the salmon were excellent, the fish was cooked medium (or cooked rare and spent too much time under the heat lamps). The rockfish was excellent but the accompaniments were overly salty. Nothing worth talking about on the dessert menu and do not serve espresso. Disappointing considering the price charged.
We came for our anniversary dinner. We sat for 20 minutes and then asked for a waiter. Our newly assigned waiter was great, but the fish was under cooked so my husband ate alone while I waited for my fish. The food was fair. We were expecting more with a "Ringside" title.
Absolutely horrible. Service was terrible, with the waiter bring the bread 45 minutes after he served the appetizers. The entry was very long delayed, and when it was served it was cold and overcooked. We asked for the manager and all he wanted to do was argue with us that the food was adequate, when it clearly was not. We finally left after not eating the entrees. Never ever again.
The RingSide name attracted us on this post-Symphony special occasion. We were also sure we could find the famous onion rings on the menu. Hadn't had these in years and loved every bite. Loved our entrees too. We will be recommending the RingSide Fish House to two different friends who have asked for our post--dining opinion.
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 dined here in advance of a symphony concert at the Schnitz. It was very convenient so that we could park once and dine and attend the concert. Had we known, we could have parked in the same tower as the restaurant and they would have validated for the evening. Something for next time.
The restaurant is on the 2nd floor of the building so the large windows looked primarily at the streetside trees but the restaurant is well appointed. Service was outstanding, not just from our server but started with the hostess and the woman who seated us. Both were knowledgeable with the menu and informed us of our server. We had four different entrees, two appetizers and some oysters from the raw bar. All were excellent although I expected my copping to be a bit more savory. Our server was appropriately attentive and well informed on the menu and wine.
My wife is gluten intolerant. While items were not marked GF, many of the items were gluten free or could be prepared gluten free.
While certainly expensive, it was a wonderful experience. We did not visit the bar but, walking by, it appeared to be active and attractive.
We would certainly go back for a special occasion.
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.
