Ringside Fish House Portland Reviews
good seafood place! Nov 19, 2015
The Ringside Fish House is located downtown, on the second floor of the Fox Tower.
The space is elegant and upscale, though during the day when you can see the 250 seats, it has a corporate feel.
The menu is billed as “American Contemporary”. Though the restaurant is primarily focused on fish, you will also find a selection of meat dishes, such as prime rib, or rib eye steaks.
Highlights of the restaurant include a raw bar and a wide selection of fresh fish - trout, salmon, swordfish, ahi, rockfish - prepared in imaginative ways that still let the essential flavor of the fresh seafood shine through.
If you want to drop by to check the place out and have a few drinks, there is a large, separate lounge. The happy hour is one of the most popular in town. House specialty cocktails and wines by the glass are $2 off, beer on tap $1 off. Most of the food is better than average restaurant happy hours – the small plates are $2.25 to $5. Try the steak bites or the fish tacos.
The selection of wines is vast – over 600 labels, representing many regions. A large group of by-the-glass pours are available.
Very good choice of starters. The thin pommes truffle frites are covered with a rather gooey hollandaise, but not in a bad way. The steak tartar appetizer is also pretty good, paired with Oregon truffles, a quail egg yolk and brioche ($14.25)
Check list The special of the day - ciopino was so good!
This place can be romantic, and is definitely a good place to take business associates.
We didn't try deserts. Cappucino dissapointed me- a little portion in a half empty glass, the price was 5$.
Service was great.
