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.

    This has to be my favorite of the Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment establishments. It's very quaint and you get that small location feel, though the place is truly huge. The building is very deceiving. We got to take a little tour of the building. We went there for our anniversary, as a gift from a friend and I had a wonderful time. The service staff was adorable from the moment we walked in and were seated. Our server, Priscilla, and her assistant Nicole, never made us feel we were rushed or that we were taking up too much of their time, although my husband talked Priscilla's face off. We felt extremely welcomed. Oh, the food. It was amazing. The brussel sprouts were my favorite. Of course, the steaks were cooked to perfection. Thanks for making our anniversary memorable.

    Service has been steadily declining each of the last few times we’ve gone. Usually sit in the bar area.

    We sat on the patio. It was delightfully quiet with the exception of a few noisy motorcycles zooming past. A beautiful space and a great respite from the crowded, raucous bar area. The service and food were both impeccable.

    This place was simply amazing! The only thing was we ate on the patio, which was absolutely delightful except for a motorcycle that kept going by. Other than that, sheer perfection! Shasta our server was so nice. Pace of the mean was perfect. We share the filet and scallop meals. Treat yourself to the baked Alaska! We even got a tour of the restaurant and kitchen with the manager. Top 5 best meals I’ve ever had!
