The Precinct is one of those restaurants that has the perfect ambience, food, and drinks. Cincinnati's Premier steakhouse for last 35 years and owner Jeff Ruby is as famous as the mayor or top pro athletes in town. The Precinct did finish #3 in our Top 7 Cincinnati Steakhouses but #1 was a Jeff Ruby restaurant as well. Steak lover or not you will love the fine dining experience of this Cincinnati landmark.

What We Like

This is a location that really takes pride in Cincinnati. You can tell that just by looking at the names of the steaks. Out of all the steaks on the menu, though, our favorite is the Father Michael Graham (named after long time Xavier University President). This is a very tasty morsel of a 20 ounce New York Prime King Strip steak topped with the Maytag Bleu Cheese. The meat was cooked perfect Medium as we desired, super tender, and the steak tasted amazing. Comes with side of their famous Freddy Salad and Garlic Mashed Potatoes.

For those family members that do not like red meat you will be just as satisfied . The Precinct seafood selections are that from a fine dining seafood restaurant. Start it off with Tiger Shrimp Cocktail (that are 4 plus inches in length) and then finish off with our favorite Precinct seafood entree of Imported Dover Sole.

Owner Jeff Ruby never disappoints in any of his restaurants but the Precinct being his crown jewell it's near perfection every time. Make sure you book way in advance as most weekends it's booked weeks in advance. 

What We Did Not Like

We loved almost everything about this location. Parking is an issue but paying the extra for near curbside valet is highly suggested. 

Our Rating Out Of 10 Stars - 9 Stars

Rating a place like The Precinct is very easy as you will not find an overall better steakhouse in Cincinnati. Think Jeff Ruby's Precinct continues to deliver as the premier fine dining steakhouse in the Queen City. The Precinct quality and service shines through and you will see why they are in our Top 7 Steakhouses of Cincinnati and Top 7 Restaurants of Cincinnati List
