Crown Republic - Gastropub
I had never been to Crown Republic prior to this experience! It was absolutely delicious.
My cousin and I were traveling from CA to NY and stopped in Cincinnati for the night. We immediately stumbled upon CRG and knew it was where we wanted to eat. From the moment we were greeted we knew it was a great choice. We sat outside for some extra rona precaution which was along a cute and quiet street. The hostess, servers and all other staff that touched our table were so pleasant, helpful and timely. All Covid precautions were taken and we felt very safe and taken care of. They gave us great recommendations on cocktails, dinner (we shared 4 plates) and dessert. Everything was so delicious I wish we were hungry to try more! Definitely heading straight back if I'm ever in the area again.
The garlic knots were really good! I got the pork chop and Mac and cheese and it was delicious! My wife got the steak and potatoes and those were also good. But the best and favorite part of the meal was the desert. We got the vanilla gelato with chocolate chip cookie! It was amazing!
Excellent social distancing, masking, and other safety procedures!
Very friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere and delicious food!
Excellent brunch and drink option. Mimosa madness on Sundays and Saturday’s 11-3. Also, build your own Bloody Mary and amazing desserts. Family friendly and a great environment.
We loved our visit from start to finish. The food was excellent; we tried four dishes. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and her timing was perfect.
Wonderful FRESH menu items. We sat outside for Sunday Brunch, noise more from traffic. Inside was louder, hearing aid users beware. Loved the 90's themed Sunday Brunch, it was fun!
Apparently are doggie friendly in outdoor area, have bowls of water for your Fido.
Finally, they actually read my note that I entered about our reservation booking. Many restaurants do not take the time to do that. I appreciated the extra time they took to make the experience what we wanted.
INCREDIBLE food!!! One of my favorite restaurants.
The food was fantastic. We plus we had a delightful waitress. Overall a wonderful experience.
Second time there. Food was just as good as the first! So delicious. Bologna’s, tomato jam, meatballs, and chicken gobbets are a must!!!!!
The homemade pasta is great. We sat outside and had a wonderful time.
Honestly, the best food I have had in a very long time! And I’ve been to some pretty nice places, and this needs more recognition!!
One of our favorite restaurants. Consistently wonderful food. Great menu, service and value. We have never been disappointed and always go back.
Love this place. It’s family owned and everyone who works there is so pleasant. No one has better Eggplant parm than Crown Republic. Also love their mushroom capellini and the kale ceasar.
This is a wonderful place with great food, staff and owners.
Apps were average but the burger and mushroom pasta dish were both amazing! The burger is in the running for the best burger in the city. Highly recommend.
The hamburgers were wonderful as well as the cucumber drink from the bar
First eat in meal in three months, and enjoyed an amazing meal with great service! Felt very clean and safe, everything flowed thoughtfully. CRG is now on our top 3 list, we’ll be back soon!
Great meal coupled with great service. My first restaurant experience since early March, I made a wise choice as to where to begin!
Very nice selection of food and wine! Our server was spot on!
Food was delicious as were the cocktails. Staff was very attentive and the owners even came over to chat with us. Wednesday night special is eggplant Parmesan - and it truly was special. Highly recommended.
Fun restaurant. Eclectic menu with lots of healthy options. Been here 3 times and have loved everything I've eaten. Service is very good and meals arrive quickly.
The food was absolutely delicious with a gorgeous presentation. The service was also attentive and friendly.
We really enjoyed the food. The decor is fun and imaginative and it’s in a great location. I would highly recommend crown republic.
Our party of four decided to get a variety of items from the menu, including starters, entrees and desserts. We ended up with nine different items and every single one was amazing!! We are already planning on going back to try the menu items we missed!
Chairs at the hi tops were uncomfortable. I felt like I was eating at some factory lunch room. That had really good food.
Food is delicious, Megan is a wonderful waitress.
I’ve really tried to find a positive in the visit, but I honestly can’t come up with one. The restaurant looked busy, so we had high hopes when we arrived, but that’s as good as it got. We tried an appetizer: Everything Knots. They didn’t feel or taste fresh, and two of them were burnt. Think frozen rolls. Not a good start. I had the Half Amish Chicken and my wife tried the Pappardelle. This was one of those times when I wish there was a salt shaker on the table so that there would be some taste, but no such luck. I ate half of it because I was hungry, but not because it tasted good. My wife ate about four bites of hers, and pushed it aside. I tried her pasta, and I pushed it aside. And, to top it all off, the wine list was weak.
There are many really good restaurants in downtown Cincinnati. This is not one of them.
First time at Crown Republic and we loved it!! The flavors of all the foods were outstanding! And the craft cocktails made the meals even more enjoyable.
Excellent food and service.
We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The host filled our glasses with water. We waited over 10 minutes before a waiter asked if we had been helped, which we said we had not. He gratefully took our order for a bottle of wine and we tried to start off with the Onion Soup Dumplings, but he said they were out. We ordered the Everything Knots instead. They were good. For being a scratch kitchen we expected more from this place. The food was just ok, nothing special. We both had house salads. The dressing on them was very good, but was strong and too over powering. For entree I had the Pork Milanese and it had no seasonings or spice at all, very bland. The blanched cabbage that came with it was delicious though. The spaetzel mac n cheese was just ok. My partner got the New York strip and also said it was just ok. It came with potatoes that just tasted like grease, no other flavor to them. It was a Saturday night and we know they were busy, but the service was poor. No checking to see if we wanted more wine or if we wanted dessert at all. Over all for the price point we were not impressed and expected more.
Crown Republic never disappoints and it has bottomless mimosas until 3 on Saturdays!
Great food and good service.
Everything was awesome, but the seats at a high-top were uncomfortable for the amount of time we had to spend in them.
Valentines Day dinner.
Amazing food and wonderful atmosphere! Great customer service & even offered a cocktail on the house as we waited! Hannah was a great server, giving recommendations and knew the menu well! Will be back!
Crown Republic’s food does not disappoint! You can tell you have a real chef running the kitchen. Just delightful
Food and service was outstanding. Will be back.
Service was terrific. Food amazing. Noise...higher than average. I requested a booth with a view, there was just 1 bank of windows, and was not disappointed. Menu was not extensive, but had ample offerings for wide range of palates. Will be returning during next trip to Cinciy.
Food is tasty. However, the menu nor the server fails to mention how big the portion sizes are. Plan on plenty of leftovers for one or possibly two more meals.
