Great first experience. Food was amazing!
Food was great, service was great, costs have increased (but who hasn't raised prices?), menu and drink/bourbon/wine menu is extensive. There's not a better place to get a top notch steak anywhere. In addition, the raw bar options are excellent.
Delicious food and attentive service. The Ruby Culinary folks continue to define the steakhouse experience. You have to pay for that experience, but it is worth every penny.
Excellent food! Burrow steak may have been the best steak I've ever had. Staff was very gracious to my fiancé and I on our anniversary. We would love to go back again sometime!
Thank you for a great experience we really enjoyed it!!
Great meal. Great service.
Our server - Anthony - was great. The food was great as always. The Precinct never disappoints.
Great atmosphere and perfect food! I would definitely recommend!
Best restaurant in Cincinnati! The burrow crown on your steak is a must too.
Great service, great food and great atmosphere. Highly recommend
The food was outstanding. All the staff was outstanding.
A+ job! We will be back.
Service was impeccable and the food was amazing. We originally wanted to sit in the more casual Bar area but the dining room experience was wonderful.
This is one of my favorite places to eat! We celebrated my daughter's 17th birthday. She got to dress up and take some cool pictures and eat great food! Thanks Precinct for the new great memory!
Jeff Ruby did it again! A perfect evening and assisted in celebrating a birthday. Perfect atmosphere, service and of course the food is always to die for! Thank you Jeff Ruby!
Food and service was great, food was delivered timely and cooked perfectly!!
Great service and food
Chad our server was amazing! Great food and great seat!
Seating is tight. The service was very good as always. Food excellent, but a bit overpriced I believe, and the mens restroom not quite up to high end standards in my opinion. Good people, good food and overall atmosphere though for sure. Carlo and Johnny's still my personal favorite JR restaurant.
The service was wonderful. Alex our server took excellent care of us. The manager came around and checked on us as well.
We had a great meal at the Precinct. It was my friend's first time there and she was blown away. Jason was our server and he was fantastic.
The ambiance was perfect, The staff amazing at what they do, The food complimented a perfect celebration for our sons 25th Birthday, fittingly enough he ordered The Burrow.
We've been patrons of the Jeff Ruby brand for years. The high quality of service, attention to detail, presentation of food, and soothing atmosphere, before and during the Covid-19 pandemic, make for a great dining experience.
This was my first time.Definitely an experience! The whole place has a 1920s antiprohibition bar ambience. The wait staff are amazing and know their stuff,and what to recommend. The food is exceptional. Great for special moments.
Our waitress, Darlene, was great!
Excellent as always. A special place indeed. Costly but good value for a special occasion.
The food is always absolutely amazing. The prices have gone up even more and more. The service was average at best. The bathroom was borderline disgusting. Smelled like the elephant house at the zoo. If your dropping over $800 for six people and really only getting a few drinks and a steak/sea bass I would expect everything to be much much nicer. We only spend that much money every few years and we were all pretty disappointed. The steaks were very good but not enough to have us go back at that price.
Jen was great! The food was amazing as always!
Amazing place to eat. Building has so much character and the staff and food was phenomenal! Go there!
Wonderful staff made our anniversary so special! The food and cocktails were amazing!!
Amazing experience! Fantastic service. Love going to the Precinct.
Seated at a small table in the middle of the room. No big deal but it impacted my experience/review. Realize that somebody has to be seated at small tables so we went with it.
Service was good but slow getting started. Took about 10 minutes to get the first glass of wine.
Food was good but Oysters Rock were not on par with BOCA. Salad was great!
Overall an average evening for a drink and light dinner.
Birthday and college graduation
We are and have been fans of The Precinct for years. Always an excellent meal and excellent service.
Wonderful service and food as always. I just wish that people would respect other patrons and keep the noise level down. If you want to drink, be stupid and loud, go to the bar area and let others dining enjoy the atmosphere.
The Precinct never fails to meet expectations for a special dinner and experience. Our waiter, Ryan, was friendly and enthusiastic about recommendations for my guest who were at Jeff Ruby's signature steakhouse for the first time.
Portion were large and delicious. Food cooked exactly to order. Overall ambience was perfect for table discussion and good times.
I'll return to a Ruby establish at my next earliest opportunity for another memorable meal.
We had reservations in the bar. It was not overly loud, you could easily carry on a conversation. The service was excellent as always.
Sue did a great job, and Austin was great checking in on us. Took a chance on the cinnamon roll bread pudding. It was great, but I would go back to the chocolate or carrot cake.
