Great Food and service. Highly recommend!
The hostess was very rude which was hard to swallow since that’s the first impression. Food was wonderful. A longer than normal wait between needing things than we have had at the other Jeff ruby restaurants. Was there 3 hours.
Where do I start? The food, the wine, the ambiance, and the wait staff is all second to none! Nothing else compares or even comes close to the experience you will have at the Precinct. You will never be disappointed! I know I haven't...
We had a filet that she loved I had a porterhouse that was ok. Cooked to order but I’ve had better
Great service and amazing food!!
Start to finish, the perfect meal. Fried pork belly, Freddie salad, blackened rib-eye, garlic mashed potatoes & crème brûlée was amazing! I will have dreams about this meal!
A wonderful meal. Both steaks were perfect. The crab cake appetizer was excellent. The mac and cheese is highly recommended and is perfect for sharing.
Me visiting Cincinnati!
The manager was very helpful
This was 2nd time there with same couple. We plan to make it a yearly event. Our server, Brandon, was excellent. The steak was so good, it almost melted in my mouth.
Absolutely incredible! Can not describe how delicious everything was, and the wait staff was so efficient and lovely!
Terrific anniversary dinner with my parents.
The staff was very polite and made us feel like family. Service was direct and quick. The food was GREAT!!! We felt like the server went out of her way to make us feel like special guests. We shall return!!!
As always, service was amazing, steaks were cooked perfectly, and we LOVE a Freddie Salad!❤️❤️ The Precinct is our go to place for all celebrations, as it’s almost always a 5 star experience! We were here for my husband’s bday and in our reservation, I made a note that he doesn’t eat cheesecake...which is the typical celebratory dessert. Maybe they didn’t read the Open Table note...because cheesecake is what we got, which is a bummer when there’s a $10 service charge for special occasions. Regardless, I totally enjoyed the cheesecake and the hubs loved his steak so we didn’t want to put our server out...surely not his oversight. We will be back for our friendiversary with our old Cincy-born friends after Christmas.... I’ll make sure to inquire about the desserts before paying the upcharge👌🏼
We went for our 10 year wedding anniversary and were blown away by the intimate care we were shown by the whole staff. They made us feel like the only people in the room and went above and beyond to make it a special evening. Will certainly become our regular anniversary spot!
Great service! The quality of the food is always consistent. We noticed this time, the the mashed potatoes were much smaller in portion . Otherwise, everything was excellent including the carrot cake!
From the time that we entered until our departure, everyone was friendly and helpful. The location of the table was in an area with a low noise level. The waiter was fully informed about the menu and made excellent recommendations. The food was at the right temperature and the taste was great. Service was prompt and smooth.
It's a wonderful place. We started with a perfect cocktail. The food was great, as usual. They were promoting a Bella Union Cabernet which was wonderful. We have had Sue for our server before and she is still too intrusive but was better this time. Other than that a perfect night.
This was our first time at the precinct, we were celebrating my husbands birthday. Everything was top notch from the food to the service. Absolutely delicious steaks, cooked exactly as ordered. The Freddie salad is also delicious. This is perfect for a date night or special occasion.
Well it took a while to get there as this was our first time, but it was worth the wait. The meal was perfect as was the ambiance. Thank you for the cheesecake to help celebrate our birthday dinner. We will definitely return.
Great place to celebrate any occasion! My husband and I loved the filet!! I must urge everyone to get the macaroni and cheese. I’d go back just for that!!!! Great service!! I recommend this restaurant to all!!
Love the food! We had a great time!
The Norse steak was excellent for those who enjoy charred layer.
If you're in Cincinnati, especially for a special occasion, you definitely need to go to The Precinct. Awesome steaks, awesome apps and delicious desert! Get a Scotch or a nice Red and you'll be in heaven!
Worth the wait. Outstanding food and service that exceeds even the best steakhouses in New York. Valet car service mandatory which was a bit annoying, but little parking in the area. Dress is extremely casual which was surprising in a high end establishment. Overall great evening. The servers were wonderful!
Service and Steaks, as usual, were wonderful. Ice cream, however, is $8. A bit pricey.
If you haven't been, you need to go! Great food and amazing atmosphere. The staff is top notch.
Thank you for making my 23rd anniversary so wonderful
Food was cold. There are better restaurants for the same cost.
awesome food. awesome service. couldn't have been better
I have been to many top steak houses in various cities for work related wining and dining; but our hometown Jeff Ruby’s steaks cannot be beat.
Our server was very polite and knew the menu very much.
We took our son to celebrate his 18th birthday and sadly his steak meal was not ordered and didn’t arrive with our dinners. They took ours to keep warm while we waited another 15 minutes for them to make our sons dinner. And then charged us for an additional steak (my husband had taken a bite initially) bc they gave him a new meal. That steak was comped but it makes your check total look larger, which drives up the tip in my opinion. They gave him a comp dessert to appease but I was surprised that was it. For the price you pay here and his dinner wasn’t even ordered, very disappointing, with little afterthought to appease. And then the check amount driven up to make tip higher, just another reason to be disappointed on our first (and now last) visit.
Best of the best! No other restaurant comes close to the quality of this place
Another wonderful dining experience! Manager Sara is a delight.
Bryan and Hona our servers were excellent and food was great!!!
As usual, this place never stops amazing. The food is unbelievably wonderful, the service is the best and the atmosphere is perfect. Love going here for date nights, and special occasions!
The food and service is always excellent.
Special thanks to our waiter Chris and Brandon who made the evening very enjoyable.
Never a disappointment. we have been coming for years and will continue to come for many more
