Service was outstanding
Great meal and great service. Susan our waitress was on the ball and helped make it a special birthday celebration.
Service all the way around was impeccable. The manager Jordan was amazing, he went out of his way to make sure I got a reservation at the bar even on the same day. They truly go above and beyond for their guests!
Service was exceptional. The mac and cheese is amazing but rich. You should definitely share that side. Steaks were melt in your mouth good.
Our server Ryan was fantastic. He was knowledgeable of the menu and answered any questions we had and was also very personable and friendly. The food was great as well. We couldn’t have asked for a better night for our anniversary!
Fantastic food and wonderful service! It is definitely worth a visit.
Outstanding stuffed with anchovies which has been done before. My martini had anchovies on a stick no olives. Lacking personal attention.
Perfect for celebrating special occasions...food and service were excellent ...
My Birthday dinner was another fantastic experience. The food and service were exceptional. We always look forward to having dinner at the Precinct.
I made reservations earlier in the day for an early weeknight dinner. My guest and I were appropriately dressed for the occasion. Though there were many empty tables, we were crammed into a corner where we had to slide the table away from the wall in order for me to be able to sit comfortably. Our wait person was in training, a pleasant person but who, in an effort to do well, frequently interrupted our conversation in order to check on us, see if the dishes tasted alright, etc. To her credit, she eventually learned to catch my eye before interrupting us. I felt pressured to start with appetizers, add sauces, have drinks, etc. It's one thing to offer, quite another to question the decision once made. We both ordered steaks, which were well-prepared but a bit over-salty. Overall it was less an enjoyable dining experience and more a feeling of having been run through a machine.
We were over-serviced which made us feel rushed, like the staff wanted to turn our table. That and the table is was in a bad spot in the restaurant, at a busy corner and against a wall.
Excellent service and amazing food.
The food was outstanding and the service was unlike any other restaurant i have been too. Great staff, amazing food and wonderful decor inside. We will definitely be going back.
Precinct is always a go to place for the best steak in town. We love coming here and also to the other Jeff Ruby restaurants. Wouldn’t recommend any other place!
Everything was wonderful. Everybody truly tried to make sure that we had a wonderful evening!
Great Service! Wish the cheesecake was still given to the birthday guest instead of the new small sampler.
Ryan took excellent care if us, as he has many times over the years.
Generally good. Lobster was excellent. 8 oz fillet seemed undersized and over seasoned.
Went for sis birthday -steaks were not as ordered (medium) undercooked and medium rare (overcooked) which for an 80$ steak you hope it gets cooked as ordered. The service however saved the day-waiter who has worked there since 99’ was most friendly and outgoing. Wouldn’t go back for price as should match as ordered.
Awesome experience! Took family that had never been to a Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse. They all were in heaven and had wonderful dinners. They say they can’t wait to go back.
The Precinct never disappoints! Great food and service!
Madison and Trae were a delight. The food was outstanding. We got oysters, salads, steaks, lobster, and deserts. Perfect beginning to end. One guy at the bar was overly excited about the bearcats football game, but that is to be expected when sitting in a bar setting.
Service was pretentious and at the same time poor. Food is way overpriced. Steaks were good but nothing special. Place is Lilly White, boring and old, and not in a good way.
50th and a 21 bday for family members.
Our Experience was fantastic as always. We came for a birthday celebration and it was wonderful. We had the filet and it was perfect. The Freddy salad is yummy and the mashed potatoes Soo yummy. Overall delicious. Thanks!
A Top restaurant in Greater Cincinnati .Tasty food,outsideing service and charming ambience.
Exceptional dining experience. First class service
Steak too charged for my liking
The Precinct continues to impress me every time I walk through their doors. Our server in the bar was Madison and she was spectacular! 5 star service and food. Also, a special shoutout to the manager Jordan stopping by and engaging us in great conversation. Thanks again Precinct for another perfect evening!
Not as great as it usually is. Steak was undercooked, then overcooked. Risotto not the same, fries not crisp. Usually this place is great. Maybe on off nite
Excellent service, food and ambiance. Steaks, salads and desserts were delicious.
This was the first time at the restaurant. The food and service were outstanding. Great dining experience. Since we were in the bar area, it was a bit noisy. I had a difficult time hearing conversations at times. But overall everyone enjoyed the food and evening out. Excellent service and never felt rushed.
Always excellent at a Jeff Ruby establishment
Food was outstanding as always. Our server Chris was extremely knowledgeable and excellent.
Went out for fiancé’s birthday and had SUCH a great evening. Bridget was a phenomenal service. She was so attentive to each table while also giving personalized experience. All in all a well spent evening of fine dining
Great as always.
Amazing service by Cole. He was very knowledgeable and seemed to genuinely enjoy his job. Great overall atmosphere and experience.
First time visit but it will not be my last. Everything was perfect.. The Precinct is in a class by itself. Outstanding service and outstanding food.
It was our anniversary and first time dining at the Precinct. Loved everything. Very much appreciated the picture prior to dinner and the special wedding anniversary dessert!
