This was the first time I had a negative experience here. We usually come once a year and every other time has been phenomenal! Food, service, ambiance, etc. is typically at 100%! Last night our server seemed off & somewhat annoyed to be there. My wife ordered a steak well done (she’s weird lol) & I ordered one medium. Both came out well done & rather than make a fuss about it, I just ate it (wish I had said something as it was an expensive meal, but I didn’t want to exacerbate the situation). Server was also taking care of a large party next to us & didn’t
Wonderful as always. I look forward to every Precinct visit we can work into our crazy life :-D
Everything was wonderful….. except it was so cold and drafty. We went through our entire dinner freezing with what felt like air conditioning blowing on us.
Brandon and his assistant were fantastic and the food was delicious!
Great experience. Service was awesome and the food was even better. Highly recommend.
Birthday. Excellent service and food. Priscilla was great!
The Precinct never disappoints! Fabulous thoughtful and timely service alibi excellent preparation of the meal. The fillet… Fabulous
This was my mine and my husband's first time going to any of the Jeff Ruby restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing. Best steak either of us have ever had in our lives. Freddie salad had so much bacon on it which was delightfully surprising! Even finished with the chocolate cake which was also great! The restaurant itself is beautiful with small rooms that just a couple of tables are in. There was a lot of older decorations that were really neat to see. And the employees were extremely kind, respectful, knowledgeable, and helpful! It was pricey but we expected it so we were okay with it. We 100% recommend to anyone and will be going back again!
The Precinct was everything we wanted it to be. The environment is cozy and comfortable. The service was exceptional. They helped make my birthday celebration extra special! And of course the food was phenomenal. We recommend the east coast oysters, Collinsworth, and mac n cheese! They also have an excellent wine selection!
Great food and service.
The Precinct was fantastic as usual. Best steak I have ever had. Great service.
Tried the Lobster Burrow. Tempted previously to try this but thought why ruin a great steak with this weird topping. It was fabulous. Highly recommended.
The Precinct differs from other Ruby restaurants in that a salad and potato option are included with your entree. On the plus side it is more economical. On the minus side we didn’t order any of theirs amazing sides.
Service was wonderful and the room is very unique. We live very close to Carlo & Johnny and go there often. But always enjoy a trip to the Precinct when we can get a reservation.
If you want a great dinner with great service; this is the place to go. The food is excellent; prepared just right and the waitstaff are spot on. They don't intrude while you eat; but are always close by in case you want something. They will refill your water glass without you knowing they were there at the table.
Service Superb and steaks cooked to perfection! The homemade ice cream a pleasant surprise.
Food and service always amazing I wish they had a smaller size rib eye. Warmed over steak I’d never the same
Had a great time. Sat upstairs for the first time. The tables were far apart which was nice. I remember the downstairs being very crowded and I didn't like it. Maybe there's less tables because of covid. Regardless it was nice not being right next to another table listening to their conversation.
Great from start to finish.
Loved it. We were on the 3rd level for the first time! Gary was amazing!
Please bring back macadamia nut ice cream pie!
This visit to The Precinct left a lot to be desired. We waited over 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. The service was slowwwww, the wine we wanted was out of stock, the food was good but wasn’t great, like we are used to. The bar tab was transferred to our table even though it was already paid for in full before we left the bar. It took over 30 minutes and pulling up our credit card transactions to prove that we had already paid our bar tab. It was embarrassing to say the least. For what it costs to eat at The Precinct, the value certainly wasn’t there.
Fantastic evening-start to finish. Creative cocktails; delicious dinner and dessert. My husband's new favorite restaurant. Definitely worth the drive from Atlanta.
Hands down, the best steakhouse experience that can be found in the country. Coolest ambiance, best food, and best service I’ve ever had.
The food, the staff and the service were all exceptional. The only negative was table placement on the top floor, directly below a ceiling fan high above us. Unfortunately, we received a cold breeze the entire time we were there and had to wear our coats while dining. The staff and manager tried to rectify the issue and did offer to move our table but by then we had already eaten our appetizer and Freddy salads, so we didn’t take the offer to move.
We have been coming the Precinct every year, with the exception of visiting Carlo and Johnny’s twice, for our Anniversary and plan to continue. We have already made reservations for November 20, 2022 and will continue our tradition in the future.
Thank you for the previous experiences and we look toward the future!
We choose Ruby’s restaurants, bc they never disappoint us. Ever. The service is phenomenal and creates an amazing experience with the best dining!
Fantastic food, atmosphere and service.

Great Service, atmosphere, and food.
The service and the good were both excellent. We always know we will completely happy when we leave there!!
Had a great experience on an early Friday night dinner reservation in the bar area. Food and service was on point!
Steak was not as good as it has been in the past.
Greeted by smiling faces from the moment we arrived. Service was outstanding, the food was excellent. The atmosphere is lovely and the decor is beautiful. Reminiscent of a bygone era, we loved it.
Great experience. Service and food were awesome
Incredible place to eat and enjoy your meal. The Bar was adorable yo have drinks in before dinner.
Great experience and food
We went to The Precinct for our wedding anniversary as it has become our "special occasion" dining destination. The service was excellent and the food was exceptional. My husband had the porterhouse and I had the lamb and I would highly recommend both. As an added and unexpected treat, the waiter brought out a chocolate torte at the end of the meal for our anniversary. The Precinct, without question, will continue to be our celebration dinner location.
The term "you get what you pay for" comes to mind, here. And with respect to the Precinct, you definitely do: A top-notch meal that transcends expectations and is 100% worth the price you pay.
Brandon was a great waiter
Excellent service and excellent food! Could not ask for better. We asked for a different table and we immediately accommodated with greatly enhanced our enjoyment.
