It is a concept of casual intimacy and communal romance. Sotto is the art of simplicity, a steward of restraint. It’s undressed, gutsy and human. It is fire, meat, wheat, and laughter. Above all, Sotto is Italian.

For Jeff Ruby, this is the steakhouse that started it all. In 1981, The Precinct was born in the former Cincinnati Police Patrol House Number 6. This turn-of-the-century, Romanesque-style structure would hold what is now the longest, continuously running fine dining restaurant in the city.Recently named one of America's Top 10 Steakhouses by USA Today and Gayot.com, The Precinct is frequently recognized as having Cincinnati’s best steaks, seafood, and service. This consistent, high level of quality and overall guest experience over 4 decades has endeared Precinct to celebrities, business people, families, and loyal diners alike. The Precinct also offers a quaint outdoor patio area where guests may dine.

    Absolutely outstanding! We dined here for my Fiancé’s birthday. The table we originally sat at was a bit too noisy for our taste and the staff was very gracious and accommodating and quickly moved us to a new section of the restaurant. Our original server, Matt, was very personable, friendly and attentive for the few minutes that he served us before we moved. Our server at our new table, Dallas, was also wonderful! He gave great recommendations and was helpful the whole night. In addition to the incredible service, the food was just fantastic. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and all of the appetizers and sides were divine. They also gave my Fiancé a delicious chocolate espresso cake for his birthday! We have dined at other Jeff Ruby locations and this one was just as good if not better! You can never go wrong dining at a Jeff Ruby restaurant. Highly recommend The Precinct along with all the other locations in the Jeff Ruby lineup!

    Our first visit since the “Relo” was a real treat. Great food, service and surroundings are always expected at any of JR’s restaurants and they did not disappoint us! Some great seasonal cocktails were a starting point. Unfortunately we took on the imaginative and tasty sushi appetizer specialty which did not allow “space” for one of their signature desserts. I guess we will just have to go back for another try…..

    Everything was absolutely exceptional. Some of the best and most well balanced cocktails I’ve tried. The goat cheese toast, primavera salad, short rib pasta and mushroom ragú were all absolutely stunning. Our server Toni was amazing. Can’t wait to come back.
