About The Precinct
Cincinnati, OH 45226
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.

First time at the Precinct and well worth it. Service was the most standout to me, but the food was phenomenal. Surprisingly different and good cheesecake and carrot cake that put it to shame.
Side order of sweet potatoes which were the absolute best thing we had was dropped in the kitchen and had to be remade was late coming out, the manager apologized and took it off our bill and gave us a dessert as well.
Wonderful service, great food. Very happy.

As if this place needs another favorable ranking, it's THE PRECINCT. You know you're getting a phenomenal meal and service for a high dollar and it doesn't disappoint.

My husband and I celebrated a special birthday. The service was fantastic and the restaurant had a historical charm. Service was outstanding and the steak and homemade cheesecake were spectacular. We are looking forward to becoming more frequent visitors.

Consistently my favorite place to eat in Cincinnati! Steaks and seafood cooked to perfection. Bar and formal dining are fantastic- both have the history of the building providing a great atmosphere. Service is outstanding- attentive but not overbearing.

Very disappointed with food and service. We did complain and the manager was appologetic and we did get a follow-up phone call from them to discuss our experience, They were receptive of the critical observations we made about the food and service problems we encountered and did seem genuine in their desire to fix the issues.

We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We dined early on a Thursday night and visited the bar before dinner. Steaks were outstanding, fresh oysters were amazing, snow crab bisque was delicious, and the service was attentive. Dessert was good but not great but the Precinct is known for its steaks not its desserts. The "play" on celebrity names for menu items was a little hokey. A little attentive housekeeping on the collective decanters above the bar may be in order. Overall great experience.

My favorite place for dinner. In fact, I love it so much we were married upstairs 5 years ago. We had an intimate wedding with 24 guests, open bar, appetizers, dinner AND live music and dancing. Would do it all over again! I have to admit I prefer dining in the private rooms; this last visit the noise level was very high. BUT dinner was melt in my mouth delicious! Never disappointed!

I enjoyed the food. HOWEVER I have always disliked the crowded tables. A table for 2 is not big enough. Although they spaced patrons every other table, The tables are too small for plates, drinks, sides breads, butter, etc.

This was an anniversary dinner for just my wife and me. Service was excellent, and our server, Donovan, was very attentive to that. We had a great time. We aren't steak eaters, so going to a superb steakhouse might seem like a poor choice, but the seafood we had was first rate. Prices are steep, but a great locale for a special occasion. Wonderful wine selection too.

Our server, Paul, was wonderful. He was attentive, polite, funny, on point and overall gave us great service. We were fortunate to be seated in the back room where Chris Collinsworth showed up with his family. We brought our kids with us for the first time. They are emerging adults and they were quite impressed with everything. Thank you!!
