Great food and atmosphere. Salad and potatoes are extra. For 40-60 for steak, I would like to get a potato or salad with it for free!

We love the Precinct, another of Ruby's steakhouses. This appears to be an uppidy pick-up place where the bar is full of people just checking out who comes and goes. I prefer a great meal for the prices charged here. This is not a good value for the money. There are many restaurants with the same fare at reasonable prices.... More

Reminded me of the old speak easy, with great wait staff, a high energy vibe, and an outdoor cigar / cigarette smoking area. Good drinks, but didn't have any food.

Steaks are on the menu. Fantastic appetizers, amazing steaks and Mac n cheese is over the top. Don't miss the donuts for desert. If you do, shame on you. Excellent service and great atmosphere.

We have heard about the Cincinnati location of Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse - we have previously dined at his Carlos and Johnny's restaurant in Montgomery,OH and enjoyed the food. Getting tickets to the Aronoff Center across the street we decided to try this location. Excellent steaks and raw bar selections. Felt there were fewer seafood offerings at this location but overall... More

We dined here for our anniversary and sat at the high tables in the bar area, which we prefer, to the more formal tables. The wine list is always excellent and the food is superb. I had the Salmon , which was some of the best ever eaten, and my husband had a strip steak with mushroom and onions, as... More

In typical Jeff Ruby style, YOU are the focus of the staff from the moment you walk in the door. Its an expensive night out, but worth every dollar. Perfect for celebrating family occasions or impressing that client. Wonderful food, friendly staff and a relaxed atmoshpere.

The steaks are great! And huge! This is an expensive restaurant, but worth every penny. Everything we had was great- the bread, Caesar, potatoes, steak, and dessert. Service was excellent- attentive, but not overbearing.
