RingSide Fish House - Fox Tower Ratings and Reviews
We met friends new to the Portland area for dinner at the Ringside Fish House. One of us had eaten lunch there and it had been very good. Our server was very attentive and provided great service. Two of us ordered the rockfish and two ordered the halibut. The rockfish was extremely salty which was very disappointing. The halibut was slightly overcooked. The best thing about the meal was the dessert. Probably won't go here again for dinner. It was too much money for what we received.
Excellent meal from start to finish. Superb service. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented. Especially recommend the eggplant soup, scallops with corn risotto, and the dessert donuts with dulche de leche dipping sauce. Great location overlooking Director's Park.
We were disappointed for several reasons. Our previous experience is the reason we chose to come back this time for a special occasion dinner. The most awkward issue was that we were given our menus but we were missing the pages of the regular selections and only given three pages. A page of chef's special meal selection , a page of appetizers, soup/salad and cocktails.
I mentioned to our server that there was a noticeable difference from the first to this visit of meal options he replied that the chef periodically changes the menu.
We ordered soup/salads ...all of us were looking forward to a seafood dinner.
We ordered a bottle of wine that was not brought to the table until we asked where it was.
We left unimpressed and most likely will not return.
Just love this restaurant. The steamed clams (without pancetta for us) is my favorite dish! I went in to enjoy their last week of lunches. Boo hoo. I will still be able to get the dish as an appetizer for dinner (about $1 more) but I will miss the lunches. Friends have had other dishes as well, that look delicious!
Special evening with a family friend made even more special because we were at the Ringside Fish House. Excellent cocktails and a nice setting. Fun to watch the people down below on the park block. Prices were a little high and the we had to keep raising our glass to the waiter to order more cocktails. Small blips in an otherwise perfect night.
Dinner was absolutely amazing. We came to town for our 15th wedding anniversary and they really went above and beyond to help make it special. There was a personalized handwritten note on the table when we arrived. Dinner was then beyond phenominal and afterward, we got a complimentary dessert. Although we were stuffed, it was also amazing. We are not from he area, but if ever we are back in Portland, we will definitely fine here again. We also watched the staff prepare for a large party, which was beyond impressive. They were meticulous as to making sure they added another leaf to the table to make the guests more comfortable during their visit. It was an honest hour of placement of napkins, silverware, even how the table cloths were laid. Those guest came and had no idea the amount of effort that went in to making their experience there an amazing in. Kudos to the staff for going above and beyond. Everything was great!
First time there - so review based on one experience. Food was okay. There are many better restaurants in Portland and certainly better price points. Our view is dining out should always involve excellent food - diners show up for the professionals to work magic from simple to complex tastes - magic was not involved here. We felt this restaurant was overpriced.
Service was very good and food was also very good with a couple minor exceptions. Onion rings were well cooked on the outside, but undercooked on the inside - onions very crunchy. Also, I asked for my steak to be done medium rare to medium, but it come out medium well. It was, however, an excellent cut of meat.
We had a business dinner for 10 people. We were put in the back room by the window which was perfect. The noise level was low so we were able to hear everyone talk. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and professional. The service was quick and the food was excellent. The only negative was that two of us had the king salmon that was very overcooked. The server asked both of us if medium rare was okay and we agreed but the actual pieces of fish that we had were more like medium well. It was too awkward with business clients there to send the fish back. The flavor was good but it was rather dry.
