The ultimate in meat and potatoes inside a historic building with a clubby feel. – In Short
This steakhouse provides a completely different experience from Jeff Ruby's other local landmark, the flashy, neon-crazy South Beach Grill at the Waterfront. This spot is a red-brick converted police station on the National Register of Historic Places. Steak Collinsworth is a 12-ounce filet mignon crowned with Alaskan king crab meat. The popular Big Daddy, a 20-ounce New York strip can, like all cuts, be topped with garlic butter, melted gorgonzola or sauteed mushrooms and onions.
the best of the best – 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!
Best Steak Ever – 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.
In Response to NDailey. – In response to NDailey. My name is Tony Ricci, I am the General Manager of the Precinct. Please give me a call so that I can investigate your expierence further. I would really like to talk with you. 513-321-5454.
Go to Mortons – 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.
Best steak around – Great steak place. Pricey, but great atmosphere, great place to take a date. Service was spectacular.
Best Steaks that you will ever experience – 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.
Everyone should try it! – 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.
steak rub – 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.
Incredible Food – 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.
