What Insiders Are Saying
Game-changing, delicious French food in an incredible space in Mid-Wilshire. Hop on the Republique train.
Fantastic food. Loved the tuna tartar, scallops, pasta and ribeye. And our server Adrienne and her fantastic service made it an amazing evening.
Really delicious food in a beautiful environment. The butternut squash agnolotti is worth going back for regularly. Everyone wanted more of it.
What an amazing experience! We somehow acquired last minute reservations and I'm so glad we did! The entire experience was great! The environment, food, and service were all top notch and we can't wait to come back! It is a bit on the noisy side but we loved the energy and overall vibe. Definitely our style!
Excellent food, good drinks, attentive service, and a great time for a group of 6.
This food is absolutely out of this world but they charged me for two glasses of rosé and I only had one...I didn’t notice until I got home and looked at the receipt. 😭
Everything else was perfect though. Expensive. Worth it.
Overrated and too loud
Birthday’s celebration was amazing!
Food, service, ambiance.. everything was great. Definitely worth the reservation or the wait!!!
Amazing food and great service
Celestial was the most amazing attentive and kind server! Odd no sparkling Rosé and the bartender did not know how to make a classic champagne cocktail.
Too Loud, Very expensive wine, mediocre service. Could not hear each other talk. Service was slow. Bread was good though.
I have been to Republique only once, so it is too early for a review proper, but I will share my experience. I was impressed by the quality of food and service, especially in view of the fact that I had a theatre curtain to make and not as much time to enjoy the dining as I would have liked. I gave the staff advance notice, but it did not help that we arrived a little after our reservation. Still they managed to take excellent care of us and have us out the door on time. The food was everything I hoped it would be regardless of the rush. Among establishments with reputations for their fare, ones with good service stand out. For me that means the ability to take my more difficult or unusual requests and make them seem like an inspired idea by the end of the meal. Republique certainly hit that mark on my first visit. I look forward to seeing what they can do for me with a bit more leisure.
Really inventive menu with engaging staff. Though it’s a splurge, it is so worth the quality of food and overall experience.
Excellent restaurant!! The building is awesome, wait staff very knowledgeable and the food was delicious!!
HORRIBLE SERVICE - party of eight and three meals came 25 min after the rest of the table was served. Never came back to offer another bottle when we ran out of wine. The food was delicious but the horrible service made it near impossible to enjoy.
The service was remarkable and food was on point every single dish!!!
My husband and I celebrated a big anniversary at this restaurant and loved every aspect of our experience. The staff couldn't have been more lovely. Our server, Ariel, was outstanding. The food and drinks were sensational. Loved it.
We were first timers celebrating our anniversary here. They gave us a quieter table upstairs for two. Much cozier and less hectic.
The food was extraordinary! Truly a gifted chef. You must try the Kaiserschmarren for dessert!!
Really good food and great service!
Cocktail program is earnest. Bakers are outstanding. Zabayon was ordered twice as it was so good.
We ate our weight in baguettes.
The only issue we had were the drinks were very small !!
And expensive!! With those large ice cubes, there was very little booze
Food and drinks receive an A+ however host/reception needs to be worked on or replaced. My friend and I get to Republique maybe 10 min early. We’re told we’re early as if it’s an inconvenience. Being there for the first time we weren’t even asked if we’d like to go to the bar because again it was my first time and I didn’t know if there was a bar. I say no problem we’ll hang tight. Host tells us our table is closing out and we’ll be seated shortly. It’s now 7:45 our reservations were at 7:30. Host, mind you we’re standing right in front of him, doesn’t even have the courtesy to say “hey guys, sorry for the wait” no just keeps letting walk ins in and showing them where the bar is! Finally at almost 8pm, again reservations were at 7:30, host says “Ingrid is there an Ingrid??” Basically left a bad taste in my mouth so early on. Thank god the food was amazing and our waitress was a 🌟. Not sure I’ll be returning.
I had a reservation through open table...and still got seated way in the front bar area on a little wooden stool...at a large family style table. I asked to move to a 2 top, and they did comply. There was a very cold draft coming from their air units!! They claim they cannot control that...but it’s January, and in the 50s....cold air should not be blowing.
Food was excellent!!! Drinks too $$
Entirely too expensive for what you get!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The food was outstanding. The choice of music was not the best. Music was kind of like a Hollywood dive bar. Great service.
From the service to the food, you will not be disappointed with Republique, do yourself a favor and book the reservation.
République remains one if the best in the City. ‘‘Tis a pity they don’t open in O C.
The food was great. There were a wide variety of options from tiny bites to main dishes to dessert and the opportunity to have half glasses of wine---perfect for someone who does not drink very much. Our server was very professional, prepared and attentive.
We look forward coming here every time. The staff is awesome, service is so welcoming, food is consistently great, and the ambiance is date perfect.
The portion is toooooooo smalllllll for dinner but the price is too high. A bit unreasonable
Wonderful experience here. The food does not disappoint. I have been twice and yet to dislike anything. Can’t wait to go back.
Republique has been consistent although this place tends to overbook. Despite having a reservation, it still took about 15-20 minutes to be seated. The welcome staff were not too helpful and were poor at crowd management. Once seated, service was generally attentive. Food choices were good with some excellent creativity on cocktails and appetizers. The charcuterie was a bit mixed, however. Cheese choices were better. There was a terrific wine value offered but be careful as some wines on the wine list were way overpriced.
We arrived for our reservation, were seated at a table with two seats side by side at a table because of a water leak which was awkward. We chose to sit at the bar for dinner instead. Then I get an open table email that we did not show up
For our reservation.
Waitress a bit impatient. Must be a long day for her.
The best food and service in LA and the best old fashioned I’ve ever had!
While the space has lost the charm of the stunning Campanile interior, the food and service is excellent. This would be my favorite LA restaurant, if more attention was given to the decor and esthetics of the place. Tip: Tuna tartare with caviar will explode in your mouth.
Very elegant restaurant, with a creative menu. Beignets were OK, but not outstanding. Fried mashed potatoes were not that good! Black and white salad was good, but not outstanding. Although there was a generous portion of truffles, they were not really that tasty. Bread with olive oil was excellent as was the rock fish. The desert cheese plate was well done with classy cheeses and delicious accompaniments. Service was excellent and very attentive. All in all a good experience, but not wonderful. Quite expensive.
Went there for a birthday, just two of us. Meyer lemon aperitif to begin. Butter from France on LA’s best baguette. Then —Every.single.dish was prepared with great care and exquisitely: crunchy fresh gem lettuce with green goddess tarragon vinaigrette, savory rock fish with assorted mushrooms, foie gras with a pineapple spear carmelized with Japanese sugar. Apple-based Kaiserschwarmin (sp?) was like apple mousse, so yummy. My birthday wish: to return ASAP!
Always a great meal, amazing food, friendly and helpful staff, and great wine selection & cocktails.
Flawless. Perfect. Wonderful. As always.
One of our favorite spots for brunch, but dinner was extremely disappointing. While the brunch portions are huge, the dinner portions are quite small - especially for the price. The seats are uncomfortable, and we had to wait almost 30min after our reservation time. Will come back for brunch for the pastries and kimchi fried rice, but never again for dinner.
