Steak
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.

    If you're craving an unforgettable dining experience, look no further than Jeff Rubys Precint. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with warmth and professionalism that set the tone for the evening. The ambiance was perfect, the food was delicious, and Angelo (our server) and Lizzie (our server assistant) made my partners birthday dinner so special. The cowboy steak. Cooked to perfection, each bite was a symphony of flavors and textures that left us craving more. Angelo and Lizzie were not only knowledgeable about the menu but also offered fantastic recommendations that elevated our dining experience. Their attention to detail and commitment to exceptional service truly set them apart. In addition to the delectable entrees, the oysters and crab cake was equally impressive. Highly recommend. Overall, our experience at The Precinct with Angelo and Lizzie as our servers/ server assistants was nothing short of exceptional. We left feeling satisfied, impressed, and already planning our next visit. If you're looking for a dining experience that combines mouthwatering cuisine with top-notch service, this is the place to be. A huge thanks to Angelo, Lizzie, and the entire Jeff Rubys team for a memorable evening. We'll definitely be back soon!

    This place was absolutely amazing. We were talking about never trying oysters and they must’ve overheard us because next thing you know they come out with four oysters for us to try, which was a really cool experience. Everything was cooked to perfection, it was the best tomahawk I’ve ever eaten. 5 stars all day

    Probably the best meal I've ever eaten. Cowboy Steak with Burrow sauce was cooked a perfect Medium Rare. The Crab Cake appetizer and Butter Pie dessert were also outstanding. Our server, Alee, was a great host. He gave great recommendations and had perfect detail on our order. It's expensive, but it was a great experience. 100% recommended for anyone looking for an occasional extravagant meal.

    We sat in the bar area, and it was such a fun experience. It was our first time and Shasta made us feel right at home! She offered us up some of her favorite recommendations and they were out of this world! We absolutely loved the crab cake. Best crab cake I’ve ever had in my life, hands down! The flow and timing of when the courses came out was great, and we didn’t have to wait long for anything. We even got to see our favorite SA, Lizzie! We had such a great time, and will definitely be back. The atmosphere was fun and beautiful with the big red booths and the lovely stained glass. Such a superior menu and a superior staff!

    I have been to Multiple Rubys establishments. We attend with family a few times a year and frequently take customers. Last night was not acceptable. If I would have been bringing Clients I would have been embarrassed. Our server was extremely slow and forgetful. Steaks were overcooked and cold. I was shocked to have this kind of experience at a Rubys location. I will not be attending this location or others for a while.

    Food was outstanding. I ordered steak and my wife ordered scallops. We sat in a booth in the bar area. We definitely prefer that over the main dining area. Our waitress, Kelly, was outstanding!

    We always have a great experience at the Precinct. We took my son who gets deployed to Kuwait in July. He wanted a Ruby steak before he leaves and it did not disappoint. They also gave us a military discount which was very much appreciated. Thank you
