Gary and Jason were exceptional. Thank you for making my wife's first Ruby experience amazing. Thanks to Sara and Jordan, also, as always.
3rd wedding anniversary spent in a row dining at the precinct. We will definitely be back next year.
We go to the precinct to celebrate special occasions- our birthdays. We weren’t disappointed. Dinner was great and service to match
Great wine list awesome steaks
We celebrated a birthday and it was very nice! Thank you!
Everything was great-food and service!
Just got to be my favorite restaurant. The food is always excellent and wonderful service.
Food was incredible
Steak lovers paradise!
I’d eaten at the precinct 20 years ago. I would say at that time it was one of the most delightful dining experiences I’ve ever had. I cannot say the same about this experience. The staff was wonderful and our server was very personable. The food, however, was just OK. The steak was cooked to perfection but in my opinion had no flavor. The garlic mashed potatoes were average to say the least. The salad .. iceberg lettuce, bacon , tomato and ranch dressing ..pretty unimpressive . The one thing that really floored me.... When we arrived they asked us if we were celebrating something and We said yes.. we’re celebrating our 60th BDs. Our server asked us the same question. After dinner they brought two desserts with a candle. We assumed it was complementary because we were not told otherwise. When we received our bill we were charged for 2 celebration desserts. It was a nice dessert but we should’ve been informed we would be charged.
Outstanding meal and service. Excellent way to spend our 25th anniversary.
Great night out with my sons 13 and 16 y.o. One of the best steaks in the entire country and only 15 minutes from home. Outstanding service and experience as usual. They also know how to pour on the service for the next generation who will keep their business rolling for many years to come.
We took our grandson for his 11th birthday and he said it was the best meal he had ever had! The only item that was not impressive was the Caesar salad. It was just ok - everything else was outstanding. In addition, while cutting my baked potato I cut my thumb with the knife and the staff was wonderful in helping me with band-aids, antibiotic cream, cut my food for me now that I couldn't. I felt really silly for having cut myself and they were all helpful and attentive. Thanks so much.
We had a great dinner with phenomenal service. Really made our anniversary special!
Had a great first experience at Precinct. We have gone to Carlos & Johnny a couple of times per year the last few years and couldn’t get a reservation so decided to try Precinct. The room we were in had a bit of a musty smell unfortunately. Loved the ambiance otherwise.
One thing I don't understand is how bar tables can be reserved. This is area supposed to be open while people wait for their reservations. This is counter intuitive and makes no sense.
The Precinct is my favorite “nice” restaurant. I go 1-2 times/year and have never had a bad experience.
Very cool layout. The service was the best. Food was good also. Will definitely be back.
The Precinct did not disappoint. Visiting from Springfield, IL. More casual than Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse. Loved the atmosphere and everyone having such a good time. Food and service was tremendous. Can't wait to go back.
Great time and the food was excellent. Our service like always was outstanding.
Middle table was very busy. Everyone bumping into each other. Very pricey.
The Precinct is a staple of fine dining and should be considered a landmark. When going to high quality restaurants the food is typically what stands out, but at The Precinct the service is second to none. Perfection is something often strived for but not attained, yet Jeff Ruby has cracked the code on perfecting his culinary experience. 100/100, couldn't think of anywhere else I would rather eat.
No complaints service and food was excellent! We will definitely be back
Sue provided excellent service. Was very attentive.
Best steak in cinci
Wonderful food! Steaks were cooked perfectly. Outstanding service! Tucker, our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the restaurant. His recommendations were spot on. Expensive dinner but worth every penny.
Thank you for your hospitality! Christian I had a lovely time.
Very expensive but really good. Love the atmosphere. Had an amazing manhattan cocktail.
Ben went out of his way to make it great meal for us. Great job to the entire team as usual.
The food at Jeff Ruby's The Precinct was exactly as amazing as I'd hoped! I had the very popular Steak Collinsworth, a filet mignon cut, cooked perfectly. It was tender, flavorful, and elegantly served with king crab, asparagus, bearnaise and bordelaise. My husband had the very filling 24 oz Porterhouse. The entire experience from the valet to the dessert was classy, professional, and inviting. The lighting was moody and the separate dining areas were cozy. For most people, The Precinct would only be considered for special occasions. This was the most expensive meal I've ever had. But, once a year, it's totally worth it!
The food and service were excellent. Unfortunately it’s a little costly but that’s to be expected at a Ruby’s restaurant.
We had an amazing dinner for our 12th anniversary. Everything was perfect to getting a table right away, service and quality of the food. Thank you for making our day very special.
Good food and very good service. I would go back when the opportunity arises again.
Everything was perfect, as usual. Another successful birthday celebration!
Fantastic dinner and were seated in a private room. Had a really wonderful evening. Will certainly return in the future.
Service and food/drinks are always outstanding. That night it was even better. From the bar area beforehand to dinner and dessert. First-class experience and service once again.
We’ve always loved the Precinct, but usually go to Carlo and Johnny because it’s by our house. Have never had a bad experience at Precinct until this last trip. Head server was mostly non-existent, and when he was at the table seemed to be yelling at us. No one cleared our plates for at least 20 minutes after everyone was finished. Didn’t refill water glasses. Forgot items that we ordered, but no server or assistant came by for 10 minutes at a time so we could remind them. We were in a back room. Bizarre really. Food was delicious as always.
My wife and i celebrated our one year anniversary here on 9/20/19 and we had an amazing time. The food and service were perfect and well worth the two hour drive. Our only complaint is how “laxed” the dress code was. We saw people in shorts and tennis shoes which cheapened the experience.
Loved the atmosphere. The staff were fantastic. We never had to ask for anything. Food was fantastic and drink prices were good. Made for a very special night out.
