A group of us wanted to have steak and change from our usual place at Ruth Chris. So after checking reviews we made a reservation for eight. We had drinks at the bar while our table was ready. I wanted a rib eye but the one on the menu was 22 oz. so I chose the NY strip instead. It... More

My husband had the "Cowboy Ribeye" which is a $65 dry rub 22oz bone-in ribeye that comes with a salad & potato. He said it is one of the best steaks he has ever had. I had oysters, asparagus & a wedge salad. Service was incredible. Atmosphere is gorgeous and unique. We took a cab from our hotel. Expensive place.... More

I went here to eat with a friend who lives in Cincinnati and i had a NY Strip, a steak i hardly ever eat because i think they are tough. Well this steak was so tender and tasteful i had trouble believing it was a NY strip. The place was great and all the food even better. This is a... More

I have eaten at so many steak houses and have often been disappointed but not here. From the moment you walk in you know it is special. I had the 6 oz Santa Ono Filet Mignon Wagyu Kobe Beef, Greg Norman Ranch, Cut to Order. Never touched the salt & pepper! Amazing seasoning. I paired this with their Shiraz and... More

My husband took me to The Precinct for my birthday. It was fun to dress up to go out to dinner. It was a multi-course dinner where they would serve you one course at a time. The server was right there with refills on drinks constantly and was very friendly. We also had a couple of drinks at the upstairs... More

The Precinct offers the most amazing Steak you will find in the world. The service is extraordinary even in very crowded conditions but such is not an issue with the amazing quality of all the food. This is a "world class" dining experience. I simply have a difficult time eating a steak anywhere but in a Ruby restaurant. I brought... More

My family went to the Precinct to celebrate my daughter recieving her master's degree. It was the perfect end to a perfect day. We all ordered filets and thought they ranked among the best we had ever had. The service was attentive. It was certainly not an every day event but someplace to go that is excellent and memorable for... More

The Precinct is a great place for after dinner drinks. We ate at Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse and followed up with drinks at The Precinct. I would definitely recommend spending an evening here. It was once an old police station.

This restaurant is the flagship location for the Jeff Ruby group. Get there early and spend some time in the bar in the back. It's lively - the bartenders know their craft and a little less formal than the dining room. If you are looking for great food and conversation in a more relaxed atmosphere - nothing beats the bar.... More

I am going to pick for just a second...you will likely have to pay $5.00 to valet park since parking s limited in the area and I really hate that on principle but put that behind you because everything else is spectacular. The building is an old police station and very interesting. The walls are filled with years of articles... More
