    We've been to Republique several times for dine in and we did a Christmas black truffle tasting menu as a takeout box at the height of the pandemic. On every previous occasion, the food has been fantastic and the service well-timed, unrushed and capable. Sadly, things seem to have changed since our last visit. Last night, we did their multi-course prix-fixe black truffle tasting 'experience' - it was definitely an experience, but not a good one. We arrived a few minutes early for an 8:15pm reservation. They were running late. After 20 minutes of waiting outside, we decided to grab a drink at the bar. We were seated 5 -10 minutes later. By 9:15 (an HOUR after we'd planned to have dinner) we'd still had no food other than an unremarkable truffle croquette amuse bouche and no wine other than what we'd ordered at the bar. Eventually, I asked the waitress what was going on and she said they were waiting on the sommeliers. After that, she must have reminded them we were there because the next two dishes of truffle panna cotta and bread with truffle butter came out right away, as did the wine. Both dishes were tasty, the bread great as always. About 3 minutes after the panna cotta arrived, the first person came to check we were done and tried to grab my partner's half eaten panna cotta off the table. We explained we hadn't finished. Thirty seconds later, the next person appeared to check if we'd finished. By their third attempt, we had actually finished. So by this point they'd managed to both rush us through our food and delay our dinner by an hour. Ugh. The next course of lobster & stracciatella salad with black truffle wasn't great - no real rationale to the dish - just some random bits of stuff with truffle on the plate. By this point, the timings seemed to work themselves out and food and wine actually arrived together. The rouget was the best dish of the night - great quality, flavour & presentation - exactly what we were expecting (hence the 2stars rather than 1).

    I made the reservation on open table and selected the front room and not high chair. The staff took us to the high chair in the common room. We ended up sitting high chair in the front room. Very disappointed !!! My wife has a leg injury recently. Why you ask me to select the seating choices and you can not deliver! I will be glad to talk to the management if they do care to discuss with me about my concern

    The meal started out incredible and then each dish kinda of got less enjoyable until our last course which we unfortunately had to send back. It was out first time coming for dinner at Republique, it has been on our radar forever and we have been for lunch and breakfast but never for dinner. We came on time for reservation but our table wasnt ready. It was supposed to be in the back room but it was in the middle room and the table was actually great view so not a problem. The celery cocktail truly one of my favorites in the city. The beef tartar was incredible, very special dish, we love the pan drippings too, what a great offering. The prawns were out we wanted to try those. The crudo was okay but the mango was bonkers good— delicate and packed with flavor. We had to wait a long time for the tortellini, about 20 minutes, a big gap in the meal. Our servers said they could have brought out the boudin, but we felt like that was the last dish... I think I wish they just curated the experience and didnt ask us. Maybe bring another dish etc... The truffle add on was great but the hazelnuts felt clunky for the dish, we kinda wish that was more integrated into the filling or something else... The casoluette was highly anticipated and recommended to us over the short rib. But unfortunately it was a bust, it came out very dry and very very salty. We never send food back but we did with this we couldnt eat it. The chef admitted it was not right. It was late in the night and felt like the attention to detail lacked. I love the ambiance and our waiter was truly a angel, accommodating and sent out an extra dessert. I feel like we just came at a bad time or something. I felt for the pedigree of Republique there should be no bad times! We will definitely come back but it was a bit of disappointment for our first time. We live in the neighborhood and we know the food is outstanding, so we will return!

    I love Republique. I have come many times but this time was awful. And to make matters worse, I had hyped it up to two new friends. We had a 8:30 PM reservation and wasn’t seated until close to 9 PM. If I wanted to eat at 9 PM I would’ve reserved that time. They kept saying the others in front of you are almost done. If they aren’t done, I would’ve been ok seated somewhere else instead of waiting for almost 30 minutes to be seated. Once seated our waiter was incredibly rude. We asked to hold on to the menu in case we wanted to add another app he tells us that kitchen is closing soon. We told him what happened and instead of saying ok I’ll make that work, he goes behind us and mocks her. To his dismay, I could see him in the mirror. The manager that night was amazing. Not sure if pur server was having a bad night but just an poor experience. Food wasn’t as up to par as usual but that could be due to the fact we were a little upset. I hope next time things are better. Grammar and spelling may be horrific but like the service that day, nobody is perfect.

    wowwwww!!!!! Wow wow wow!!! The most amazing meal and service I've had in a very long time. Blown away. My best friend and I went to celebrate my promotion at work and we felt like we were the most important people in the room. Obviously we know we're not, but they made us feel that way! From the hostesses, to our server Gabriella, to the bartender Jason, the GM, the wine sommelier, the bussers, and the runners, everyone was so wonderful, so professional, polite, and knowledgeable! Their hospitality was on point!!! We were checked on often, new plates for every course, great suggestions. They even gave me a sweet congratulations card. The food was like nothing I've ever had. So delicious and beautiful. I can't wait to go back. The music was sooooo my jam too. Thank you for the best celebration night ever. It was a dream

    The food is even better than I remembered from pre-pandemic, and it was fantastic back then. Waitstaff is friendly and attentive, even though most have only been there a month or so. Baguette + butter so good it hurts to think about. Only possible criticism is their outdoor area lacks the charm of all the other restaurants that have transitioned outdoors. But that's about a .03 out of 100 – go now!

    I made a patio reservation once I know we’ll be visiting LA, but didn’t anticipate the traffic so we were 1/2 hour late for our dinner reservation. We called multiple times to the restaurant and no one picks up until the time of our reservation at 6pm. Over the phone, we were told that we’ll need to return the table by 7:30pm, and we agreed. When we arrived at 6:30pm, we then told that we won’t be able to fully experience our meal in an hour and offered us the bar at the stools which I declined as we travelled all day, and prefer something comfortable. The hostess lead then gave us a patio table and the hostess reminded us that we’ll need to return the table by 8pm. Our server greeted us quickly, and gave recommendations on ordering, we quickly ordered and told our server that we’ll want to order dessert after. She recommended us to order one dish from each course to share, and so we did. The baguette was nicely warm and fluffy with room temperature butter and flaky salt, very delightful or we were just very hungry. 🤣🤷‍♀️ The heirloom tomato with burrata was refreshing and juicy, absolutely delicious! The squash bloom tempura with stuff goat cheese was light and unique as I never had squash bloom before, the pairing of the two different dips compliment the stuff goat cheese well. The duck confit was delicious and portion was good to share. Duck skin was perfectly crisp, except there were a few hair sticking out, so I had to cut that out. That put me off a bit, but the jus saved the dish for me. The meat was a tad dry to my liking, I guess confit with such crispy skin, it’s quite difficult to achieve crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Overall, the food was amazingly declines, we enjoyed every bite. However, the pacing and service was a little bit disappointing to me. The server only came to us twice during our first three courses, and when we almost finished our 4th course, she then came over and told us that we could stay as long as we like.

    Delicious food. We chose this restaurant as a pre-theater meal. The Manxke’s are true creative geniuses. Our waitress, Olivia was exceptional. We only gave lower ambiance points due to the patio dining situation. It still feels like a Converted parking lot rather than a lovely garden. Every bite was a dream, the baguette with Normandy butter and fleyr de sel, the steak tartare with an unctuous Dijon ice cream was revolutionary, my husband favored the Campanelle pasta with generous tender bites of lobster and we closed with fries and a melt-in-your-mouth short rib. I highly recommend this awesome restaurant.

    The food & service were quite good. A refill of our wine glasses would have been appreciated as would providing sharp knives without having to ask for them. The apricot sorbet tasted store-bought, but otherwise, the meal was excellent. The room was a bit too noisy. A replacement item for the amuse-bouche was offered but never appeared.

    As this was my first time at Republique, I was not aware that the "patio" is basically, a garage kind of adapted as a restaurant extension. If I knew it, I wouldn't make my reservation to seat outside. It's a completely different experience compared to seating inside the restaurant, "ambient" wise etc. Was windy and the food was not hot when delivered to the table. It's a nice restaurant as long as you stay inside not outside. My feeling is that outside works good for Brunch but not for dinner.

    First time I have had the pleasure to dine at this extraordinary restaurant. We were there for early dinner and dined in the back dining room. All of the plates are shareable and everything was so delicious. The wine sommelier chose the perfect bottle of wine to accompany our meal. And the service was attentive without being overly attentive. I highly recommend Republique.

    Worst dinning experience ever. Staff was horrible. Was overcharged for wine. Had to wait 20 minutes for a table when there were 8 plus tables available. I will never come back. Canceling reservations at Manzke. The food is always solid but the staff sucks. Worst service ever.

    The food was lovely, the service as well.... the patio, not so much. The frequent wefts' of stong sewer smell made it hard to enjoy my food. It was VERY loud from the street traffic. (think semi trucks honking often and ambulance noise) The chairs were extremely uncomfortable wood planks. Although spaced out nicely, the tables are very small. The ambiance was ??? Actual wood particle board painted green to enclose a part of their asphalt parking lot. For a $250 meal I would of expected a little more from them. I left feeling like we were robbed of a the nice ambiance inside (I peeked in as we were leaving). They should not seat people in this area and feels like an obvious cash grab left/left over covid space that they should of closed when they reopened the inside. I would of loved to give 5 stars for their service and food but all of the above makes me almost want to give them 3. It made it that much worse. The fantastic food and service couldnt save it. Moral: DO NOT EAT ON THE PATIO

    We dined outside on the enclosed private patio which provided ample space between tables for both privacy and Covid safety. Our servers were friendly and helpful, always there at the right moments without being intrusive. Actually, the staff went beyond to make sure we had a pleasant dining experience, seeing to our every need. We were delighted with the quality and creativity of the food and can’t wait to return to experience more of Chef Manzke’s inspired delights!
