I suppose there is a thrill from having a meal brought to you by rude people who think they are doing you a favor but not for me. The food was over seasoned which makes one ask what are you hiding? But the entire staff needed replacing

Arrived at 7:55 PM for an 8:00 reservation. Waited at the bar for 45 minutes. Asked the hostess twice when we'd be seated - but she never was able to tell us when a table would be available. We finally left at 8:40 and went to another

I hate have to wait but that is the only thing I did not enjoy at Precinct last night. My fillet was the perfect cut and perfect quality. The Freddy Salad is great. The lobster was about as perfect as I have ever had. You could slice

The rub was a bit exessive, not bad though. A bit pricey for the amount of space you get to occupy. There is a difference between cozy and cramped. Overall I expected a lot more from a restaraunt with that kind of reputation. On the up side, the staff was very friendly and attentive.

I've only had one meal at The Precinct - the veal chop - but it was the best thing I've ever had at a restaurant. Anywhere in the world.

It was over two inches thick and must have been 16-20 ounces.

We had some kind of appetizer which was great (I think it was mushrooms on bread), but my brain expunged everything but the pleasure sensation of that chop.

This was the first nice resturant in town that I went to that I was still hungry when I left. I had the lobster and it was tasteless. I didn't complain cause I figured I'd fill up on desert!! Only to be told they only have choc. covered strawberries complimentary for desert (I'm allergic to strawberries). It was obvious they wanted you out after your meal. I feel if your paying as much as we did for our meal we shouldn't be rushed out. Nor should I have to go to another resturant for a bite to eat and desert (which we did). They did offer a free desert the next time I come in. Just make sure it's not a holiday or they won't have the desert menu. Not sure we'll be back since dinner was not so great either.

I was born & raised in Cincinnati and now reside in North Carolina. My family however still lives in Cincy, so whenever I'm home we for sure make a stop at The Precinct. I don't even eat meat too often, but just thinking about one of the Precinct's steaks, my mouth waters! The whole atmosphere of the restaurant & it's staff is pleasurable and inviting, and the food is the icing on the cake!

The scenic drive from the city's downtown core to The Precinct ended in what seemed to be a different time period altogether. The Precinct resides in what used to be a patrol house. Its eerie atmosphere is generated by old brick walls, haunting black and white photos of criminals and officers of times past hanging throughout, and a feeling of confinement while dining that must have been felt while these cells were occupied by these empty expressionless faces in the photographs. It is nothing but thrilling. There is some unexplained connection you feel with the history when you dine at The Precinct. My girlfriend and I had planned to try The Precinct's famed steaks. She ordered the Carson Palmer filet and I chose the porterhouse. While both steaks were cooked to perfect pink and they were melt in your mouth tender, we were both shocked at the amount of peppercorn 'seasoning' were caked on the outside of the steaks. After one bite my eyes were watering and my nose was beginning to drip. We love spicy foods, but eating the steak was literally like snorting cracked pepper. I actually thought there had to be a mistake in the kitchen, but, after being told that the steaks were supposed to be that way, I was tempted to challenge our waiter to take a bite of the steak, look me in the red, teary eyes and tell me that it was correct. HOWEVER, do not let this deter you from The Precinct's steaks. Had I known I would have just asked for less pepper coating. After scraping the pepper off the steak with my fork it was some of the best steak either of us had ever had. The wine list was extensive, the dessert (I have no idea what she ordered, all I know is it was big) was delicious, and our waiter (despite his surprised glare because I wanted some steak with my pepper) was actually quite helpful and classy. It is a must stop restaurant for any who, like us, were visiting Cincinnati for the first time. It is a total experience worth a try; just ask them to go easy on the pepper.

i am a sales rep who dines out on a regular basis to entertain my clients and there's only one place to go and that's the precinct. i know from the moment i walk in, i and my clients are going to have a 5 star experience. the service is phenomenal, and the food is always delicious and consistent. just looking around, there's always someone with a smile on their face ready and willing to assist you in any matter that needs attention. i have recommended the precinct to all my staff and family and friends. i am so thankful that there's a nice restaurant that still puts their guests first!

My husband and I went there in March 2006 for our 1 year anniversary. Everything was wonderful. Best steak we've ever had anywhere. The only con would be the that the tables are really close together. As we were finishing up our dinner another couple had been seated right next to us and she insisted on sitting next to her date. Needless to say they were literally almost on top of each other because there's not enough room to sit side by side at the little table they were at. Other than that, everything was wonderful. Did not try they wine, but the food was great ! Would definitley go there again.

I recently took my girlfriend here, at her request, for her birthday. Being a culinary grad, former resident of Chicago (no stranger to steaks), and self-proclaimed foodie, I was dissapointed in our evening...to say the least. The ambiance was nice, but the tables are so small they barely leave you room to set your wine glass down after the food is delivered. Not to mention the fact that they are all right on top each other. I must say the flavor of the steak was delicious, but was cooked just past the med-rare that I ordered, and it came out a bit on the cold side. I expected the king crab topping to be chunks that covered the steak, but it was only one single piece that was barely as big as my little finger. The sauces were too thick and should be served on the side (perhaps part of the reason the temperature was off). The service was average, at best. When I dine at a place of this supposed caliber, I shouldn't need to ask for another glass of wine before my server offers one (after it was completely empty). The clearing of the table was also not accomplished in a timely manner. The floor manager was cheesy and didn't seem the least bit sincere when checking on us. But the worst part of all was that they forgot my girlfriend's bday. I made mention of the fact that that was the reason for our visit when I made the reservation, and again the morning of our dinner when they called to confirm. Which was another turn-off. When I asked the girl what they do for bdays, she explained that there would be a chocolate dessert w/some "goop" on top. When asked if they could personalize the dessert with a happy b'day and my girlfriend's name written with the sauce (which is a very easy request to accomodate, and has been done for me elsewhere before), she flat-out denied my request without checking into it further. Don't be fooled by their reputation. I will be dining at Morton's next time. The price and wine is comparable and you have no less than 3 servers plus backwaiters.

I have to say I have gone several times and it I am always amazed of how Great the food always is. The service is hands down some of the best in Cincinnati as well as the atmosphere. If you are looking for the best steak in town served by some of the friendlist staff. You will not be disappointed. Jeff Ruby finally did something right.

The Precinct serves the best steak that I've ever had in my life! I've been here 5 or 6 times, and can honestly say that this is the best place to go for special occasions (or if you can afford it, regularly). The service is excellent, but not stuffy.

I had read about the rub on the steak and found it to be true. In fact one of the steaks came out very salty. It could not be consumed. They did not offer to do anything and we did not push it because we were not trying to get anything from them. Of course just has everyone mentions the tables are on top of each other which makes a private conversation impossible. I thought the bartender on the Saturday we were there was very poor also.

I missed my return flight to Atlanta from Cincinnati on a Saturday night.

I figured what the heck...I'll stay and catch a cheap Bengals game on Sunday.

After the game the ramps to the expressway were packed so I headed through town. That's when I stumbled into The Precinct.

Went in...ordered a steak and a margarita.

What can I say...without a doubt...THE BEST FOOD I HAVE EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE!!!!! If you get the chance to eat there...DO NOT PASS IT UP!

Words could never come close to explaining it...you'll have to eat there yourself.

Have been going to The Precinct for years. Usually go here once a month or more. The food here is impecible and the service is second to none. As all the other Ruby establishments, one can expect to be treated with friendly servers, bartenders etc.. I have to say that Tony Ricci and his staff have got the ambiance and professionalism down to a science. We go to this Ruby rest, because we feel like family here.

I was amazed the first time I visited this restaurant. EVERYTHING was perfect. The valet took the car promptly and politely, we were greeted with a smile and seated quickly, the server was at our constant (and willing) disposal, the food was tremendous (do not miss the steaks), and the atmosphere was so incredibly romantic. I cannot say a bad thing about the Precinct. We have been there probably 10 times now and have never had a negative experience.

Review for South Beach Grill, A Jeff Ruby Steakhouse. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a 10. Reason 1 - the cuisine. It was impeccable. Everything was done just right(including my steak). Reason 2 - the atmosphere. It was on the water. The lighting was awesome, and the tables were spaced far enough apart to enjoy some intimacy if desired. Also, on Saturday nights they have brought back dinner and dancing. That is what tips the scale in my opinion. The food is delicious, the atomsphere is wonderful, and the dancing is romantic. It is way on the pricy side. If you do not intend to drop at least $100.00 (without desert and drinks) then this steakhouse is not for you.

Bring your appetite and a lot of money. You are served considerable portions of everything you order, but it is all too expensive for the working class person. Be sure to make reservations also. The bar area was very small, and packed the entire time. Don't expect to get anything at the bar before you eat either. The bar tender only pays attention to the people he knows (and the ones that wave the most money in his face). After we were seated, the waiter was very helpful and kind.

Pros: Incredible food

Cons: tight seating

.

I have never had a better steak anywhere in the United States. The Filet Mignon is so tender I can cut it with a fork at a well done temp. The service is fantastic. Fine dinning without feeling rushed. I have yet to meet a server there who wasn't polite yet fun loving. Have a coctail then have a steak, even have a starch thats not al a cart.

Unbelievable steaks! Great service... manager makes sure you're having a great time. I loved it! (But beware... you sit nearly on top of your fellow diners.)

Editorial from

The Romanesque 1901 building that houses The Precinct is remarkable in its own right. Arched windows and a massive corner turret add distinctive style to the red brick structure, which at one time was a police patrol house. The dining room…
