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 white tablecloth 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 3 decades has endeared Precinct to celebrities, businesspeople, families and loyal diners alike.

This restaurant was highly recommended by friends and it did not disappoint. I drove from Columbus OH with a friend to celebrate my birthday. Our server, Donnie Rose, was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu and was able to give history on the restaurant and answered any questions that we had. The prices were what we expected at a Jeff Ruby restaurant and some of the entrees come with a salad or side dish included so you don't have to break the bank. I will return to this or another Jeff Ruby establishment when I am in the Queen City. Great Experience!

I have dined at Jeff Ruby restaurants a several times and once again the food was fantastic! The bar was spectacular and the server very helpful. The only issue I had was we were seated by a table for 8 and the noise was somewhat a problem. Sure isn't what I expect from a Ruby restaurant. A large party like that would be better suited in the back of the restaurant against a wall not in the middle of the room.

We were so excited to treat our guest from South Africa to Jeff Ruby’s. We have been there a few times and really talked it up. The steaks were amazing. The Mac and cheese was burnt. Our waiter did not seem interested in our party at all. We witnessed him engaging with other tables and developing positive dining relationship/experiences with them, going above and beyond for them, and then he’s basically ignored us unless we needed something. It took 55 minutes to get our first bite of food on the table.
Just didn’t live up to the normal Jeff Ruby’s/Precinct experience.

Had a late reservation d/t waiting until last minute. Server was great except could not make out most of what he said d/t noise level, but noise died down after a while, and also the couple behind us had gotten way too drunk and one was escorted back to his seat by the manager after leaving for the bathroom (restaurant called an Uber for the couple 👍🏻) Food was amazing though! Ordered the Collingaworth and had crab patties as an app!
