Can't say enough about the food and service at The Precinct. It was my son's first visit and he was enthralled with the food from the giant shrimp cocktail to his glorious steak Collinsworth. We had a late reservation which caused us to be the last to leave. The servers did nothing to hurry us out and instead lavished us... More

The tables are way too close. This was my first time at the Precinct, and I wasn't impressed at all. The service was fine, but the food was just ok - especially considering the cost.

The service is A-1, the steaks are out of this world, almost melt in your mouth. The prices are a little high, but you get exceptional food.

My girl friend and I have a 20 year plus tradition of celebrating our birthdays at the precinct. The atmosphere is rich,and the staff are so attentive. The most difficult decision is between the collinsworth filet or the sea bass. I so look forward to my next dining experience in the fall.

We visit for special occasions and when we want a great meal. The wait staff are the best! The steaks are delicious and the sides are the best.

We make the rounds of steakhouses visiting one every quarter or on special occasions. This was a birthday visit and have not been to the Precinct in a few years. Although my wife told them it was a birthday couples dinner we were just outside the kitchen and I was bumped into no less than 5 times as wait staff... More

Description
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.
