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.

    We brought our kids for my birthday dinner and didn’t realize how well the Precinct handled children. They had a kids menu and crayons that really helped me enjoy my favorite restaurant in Cincinnati.

    The Precinct & Jeff Ruby Steakhouses are highly rated & recommended in Cincinnati; but I was not impressed. Our visit started at the bar, which was SUPER sticky. Once seated, Alec was an awesome server, conversational & connecting well with his guests. He shared many intriguing suggestions as to what to see while in Cincinnati. His support staff was efficient & excellent with follow up & table clearing. The old police precinct has tons of character & ambiance. The “Kiss of a Rose” dessert is definitely a unique & must have experience, especially for chocolate lovers. Unfortunately, I was not impressed by the other food choices. My glass of wine was great, as always, “ Four Graces, but was $19 a glass; too expensive. I’m glad I visited to check it out.

    Came for a birthday dinner for my boyfriend. It was great. Trey our server was amazing. He was friendly knowledgeable and had great recommendations. We reserved high top seating which is in the bar area so the noise level was more than if you got regular seating. Both are great experiences and do not disappoint! We also got our photo taken outside and they gave us a physical copy of the picture it made it very special and was a lovely keepsake from the occasion. Food was amazing as expected. Best steak in Cincinnati.

    We had a great dinner. Maybe the best time we have in our recent dinning experiences. We both enjoyed the special menu items and very much enjoyed them. It is still very expensive to dine at The Precinct so be prepared.
