Steaks are always amazing!!! Servers give great attention to detail.
Food was very good. Not the best steak that i have had but def good.
We’ve never had bad service before at The Precinct but it was terrible on this trip for my husband’s birthday. Our waiter, David, was beyond inattentive and was rude. Nothing about his rude attitude made us feel welcome and I feel awful that this was how my husband spent his birthday. We frequent Jeff Ruby’s often and honestly don’t want to come back after that experience. Disappointing.
Great food and service. A bit noisy and slightly crowded
Only complaint I have is they didn’t box all of our food which was a big disappointment.
It's well worth it, no issues and the food and service are great.
By far the best food anywhere! Loved being able to enjoy our 20th wedding anniversary dinner with such amazing entrees.
If you're in Cincinnati and you want a nice dinner, this is your top choice. However, you better book in advance (2 months out for a weeknight and 3 months out for a weekend night). Plan ahead and enjoy a nice meal.
Prices have risen since Covid which is unfortunate, but this is a high-end steakhouse-better than Ruth's Chris, Capital Grille, Prime, etc.
Riley was amazing and the food was fantastic as usual. Will be back!
Our waiter was helpful, pleasant and went out of his way to be helpful to those celebrating a birthday by giving complementary cake.
Excellent service from all and especially Darlene. Outstanding quality food and everything was expertly prepared and tasted delicious. Appreciated that there were well-priced, quality wines by the bottle on the menu.
every morsel of food was incredible. and the steak...it's IMPOSSIBLE to make something better on your own, even if you're a pro. I don't know what they do to make that meat so incredible, but it's worth every penny for every very expensive ounce!
The Precinct never disappoints! Excellent food and service always!
A Ruby's restaurant experience never dissapoints and The Precinct is always top shelf. It's pricey, but the food and service are excellent. We will be back.
Delicious, as always. We hadn't been there in ages, and it didn't disappoint. That's for sure. Service was attentive, the atmosphere classy, food was cooked to perfection.
Bridgette was an awesome server. The food was delicious and they made my husbands belated birthday awesome.
Absolutely delicious steaks! By far the best meal we’ve had out in some time. Our server seemed to focus more on me, almost ignoring my husband, placing the check on my side of the table.
Wonderful as always
As always a great experience. Server was great.
Zoey was great! Food was awesome.
Superb service, world-class food, and incredible atmosphere. There is no substitute for a Jeff Ruby’s restaurant.
Good was outstanding. Celebrating my husbands 50 birthday.
We live dining at The Precinct! Great food and exceptional service.
Probably the best steak we’ve ever had. The mac and cheese was amazing also.
I typically have great service every time I dine at the Precinct but this time did not meet expectations. It was a struggle to get the attention of the staff at times. Additionally, it felt like we were being pushed out. We had just gotten our entree, I was mid-bite, and one of the staff came over to see how we were doing and if we needed boxes. Food was great but a large part of what you pay for is the experience.
Simply wonderful dining experience on the beautiful patio, but the traffic noise was a bit loud. And, I am not a fan of the TV being on during dinner.
Best meal I have ever had, beyond a 5 star experience!
Unique place with delicious steak - better than Ruth Chris and even Berns!
Food was perfection. A great place to spend our anniversary dinner.
Excellent service and the steaks were best we have had. Sea bass was also excellent. Waiter recommended shrimp and grits appetizer which was delicious. Great restaurant for special occasions or treating yourself to a great steak.
Food and service was amazing as usual.
Amazing dining experience for my first visit to The Precinct! We will definitely return. Thank you!
Sat in bar. Staff rushed me and my two guests from the start. Couldn’t even sit down before menu was handed to me. Wet towel was placed down after seafood appetizer but picked back up before I could even use it. My son was literally chewing on food when a staff member came by and asked him if he was finished with his plate. It was a swarm of staff to keep us moving very quickly.
Didn’t feel like a $400 meal but that is what I paid. A little disappointed this time.
It was the best steak I’ve ever had but not worth 75.00 per entree. The service was excellent.
However…the manager checked on the table next to us— an obvious regular/high roller, but didn’t check on us. Very rude and disrespectful. Because of that, and the fact that we (2 of us) spent $250 on one meal, we won’t go back. If you have big bucks to throw away on food, this is a great place to eat steak. The food was absolutely superb.
Superb food and service; our go-to for special occasions
Outstanding service, excellent food and wonderful atmosphere. Best place in town!
Outstanding anniversary meal with great service from Sue. Loved the Crab Bisque and my favorite Steak Collinsworth.
The food and service was outstanding as usual. This is the place to go to celebrate a special occasion.
Consistently great food and service!
