Night before the Boston Marathon, the place was surprisingly empty. Had an excellent server (Omar). Caesar salad and roasted chicken were very good; the short ribs were too fatty. Decent selection of wine and a wide variety of desserts. Overall a decent place for a business dinner.

Consistently excellent. Precinct has become one of our favorite restaurants in Boston. We've had the same server for several visits now and he is always professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. The quality of the food is equally impressive. This time we enjoyed the filet mignon and the baked haddock. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. Cocktails and wine selection are also good. Look forward to returning again soon.

Just so great. I needed to increase the size of my party ... twice from the original number. I was skeptical that it would work when I had to leave a message in that regard. But lo and behold, they called me back by the end of the day. It was their pleasure to add one more guest to the table. And the second time I called to add another two bodies, my Open Table reservation was corrected to a party of 11 from 9. Just fantastic. Then, we arrived to a wonderful roomy table and Omar, an incredibly attentive waiter. We immediately asked for separate checks which we know can go one of two ways, and he made it happen seamlessly. Each and every member of our group raved about their food, the ambiance, the service. Highly recommend Precinct Kitchen & Bar!!!

The food was decent, but the main course I got (Mariner's Pasta) was far too salty. The bar area was very loud on a Friday night, but thankfully our table was far away enough that it wasn't too loud! Service was good, but there are definitely better overall options in the area.

We ordered off of the Dining Out menu and the salmon and steak were both very good. The service was great from the friendly host to our lovely waitress and made our experience really enjoyable. The room is loud though, so it is not good for the soft-spoken or mumblers and those who love them.

We had a good time and meal at Precinct. The staff is friendly, service good, and food a very good value for money. We had combination charcuterie and cheese board, which was excellent with very generous portions. My short ribs, recommended by our waitress, was excellent. All in all great job and we recommend to anyone.

Such a nice place. We had excellent service and such good food and drinks. The highlight was definitely the cheese board - it's so much bigger than what most places give you and every single cheese was delicious. My Moroccan Eggplant was delicious (if a bit spicier than expected!) and my boyfriend didn't even need his knife to cut into his short rib. The server even gave us a free dessert at the end of our meal! Will definitely be going back next time I'm in Boston!
