yet again a wonderful nightThree of us went and ordered from the menu staples and specials. As always it was outstanding. Waitress was fabulous-friendly and full of great recommendations. The baked alaska was wonderful and just right for the three of us to have a couple of bites to end a fabulous meal.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRepublic Great for Casual DiningAs always, excellent service, excellent food! Outdoor seating a plus! We highly recommend Republic for a casual, enjoyable evening!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFour of us enjoyed our mealsFour of us enjoyed our meals enough to take away the leftovers. Onion Soup had a surprising & good texture. Mac n cheese &Lobster was a hit for 2 of our diners who finished off their bowls. Our fish n chips diner lives on the jersey shore and said it was right up there with her shoreline ' off the boat' offerings. In an otherwise delightful dining experience --we would only say that it is not a place for one with hearing aids--noise levels made us hunker down over the table to converse.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDee-lishI met a friend for dinner. We both had excellent entrees with great presentation. I love the burger in the grass which helps me stay on my low carb diet. The menu has a little of everything. The banana bread pudding was 'melt-in-your-mouth delicious.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food for a great price!Republic is a quinntisential pub that has great food. The whole restaurant feels like an extension of the bar, but the menu is not just the standard run of the mill bar food. Appetizers are kicked up a notch and there's nice variety for main courses.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great duringEverything was great during my last visit with friends and collegues.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth a visitA very solid pub style restaurant centering on burgers and beer but with a nice selection of other more upscale options. Cow au van was excellent, hearty in a rich burgundy sauce, as was my wife's chop salad. Truffle popcorn seemed a little stale and not worth $4. Nice variety of bottled beer. Beer on tap is a bit limited but selection was good. Ambience was very good.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and EclecticThe food was very good, a bit pricey but great selection and some very unique offerings. Loved the food presentation. The Aspargus appetizer was delicious but skimpy on the amount of Asparagus. Bugers were excellent and the Gorganzola, Pear pizza was delicious but again a little pricey.
All and all great food, fun atmosphere, prices on the high side for what you get.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSeems there's something onSeems there's something on the menu for everybody - the burger lover to the true foodie. Every time I've eaten here, the experience has been great & the food, even better. Everything seems well prepared by people who care about what they're making & whom they're preparing it for. It's a great place to hang with friends, share a beer & a burger or bring a date for some great ambience & a sensual meal. I should eat there more often & in fact, I will be. You can't go wrong here.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience!!!This was recommended by a few different people. All were spot on with description and quality!! Some many items to try on menu, we have no choice but to return!! Looking forward to the next time!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonderful.Everything was wonderful. I brought work collegues here for the first time and they loved it, they are going to be returning customers. The food was fabulous! The owners are the best!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother winner for "Max"Upscale casual, with good food and giant martinis. Republic has an eclectic menu with something for everyone.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, awesomeWe brought 12 people to a 10 person reservation, They accommodated us no problem
Food was amazing, service was great, all in all what we've come to expect from this place5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visit just as great as firstThis was our second meal at the Republic, and since we enjoyed the first time so much we brought friends with us this time. We requested the upper level, since we had eaten on the porch the first time. The second level has some nice, comfortable booths and great atmosphere, but it did get noisy due to its being open and above the bar area. The food was great, and service fine. When we go back, I think I will ask for one of the front rooms on the first level. Everyone had a great time. There are TVs in the bar area and people could sit at tables or counter/bar type seating. They offer the most fantastic onion soup served over a mushroom/potato hash - the best thing to start off a great meal.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMillennial ChefsA problem, nouveau millennials is they are too smart for their own good. They try to incorporate their culinary expertise in every item. Most of us do not even know what these ingredients are. And a drink...how about a classic and not the infusions they create.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYou should go - Gem in BloomfieldI really like this restaurant - the food is outstanding - the service was attentive without being overly pushing. The variety of selection with a twist is nice and the dessert selection has been expanded since I was last there - you must try the banana bread pudding - it is amazing.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was always outstanding GreatFood was always outstanding
Great wine list, excellent cosmopolitans
Good service provided by Randy who remembered our choice of sparkling water and the Grey Goose for my cosmopolitan.
Atmosphere in the sunroom was great for early sunday night dining
On an other occasion the side room was extremely noisy.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my go-to spots. GreatOne of my go-to spots. Great food, staff, and ambiance. Definitely recommend without reservation (but you should make reservations, it gets really crowded on the weekends)4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFredI love the interior decor of this hot and relatively new entry into the competitive Hartford area pub/restaurant market. Superb service combines with a cool and varied menu and a comprehensive offering of beer and wine to foster an excellent all-round experience. Loved the wings, the nachos, the roast chicken and the burgers. Give it a try!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are long time BloomfieldWe are long time Bloomfield residents and it is just great to have American cuisine back in town! The food was really superb - where else can you find steak tartare these days? The cream soup was gourmet and the prices were within budget and the service was cordial and quick. The only problem I had was when they turned the A/C on and the vent was right over me, temperature control is important. I will highly recommend this place to other townies. We WILL be back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoy Republic very much.We enjoy Republic very much.

I will definitely go back!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOn our first visit to theOn our first visit to the Republic, we had a great meal. Interesting menu with some "hi-tech" options as well as old standards. Burgers are over the top. Was disappointed that they would not substitute a few greens for the cole slaw. My husband loved the Peruvian chicken. Interesting martini list. Noise level is high but our request for a quiet table was honored ( well, it's all relative). Very interesting building. Parking situation inadequate. This will become one of our standards although I would not go without a reservation.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time @ a reunionHad a great time @ a reunion w/ former co-workers. Everyone agreed it was a great choice. Can't wait to go back. It is a gem!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic upThe food was fantastic up to the dessert. We ordered the cheese cake pops. They were too lemony and fell off the stick too easily. However, our oyster appetizer and our main meals were fantastic. The waiter was friendly and available without being overly attentive. Would definitely go again and order a different dessert.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRepublic is a Gastro Pub,Republic is a Gastro Pub, so don't go expecting super-healthy fare. Go to eat well and have a good time. Randi, our waitress, was a lot of fun, knows the food and wine list, and gets high marks from us. I started with Clams Casino, which were fine, and then had Helmar's Cod on Randi's recommendation. I'm not a Cod fan but liked it and would have it again. I have had the Coq au vin on a previous visit, as well as the Confit. Didn't know what either was, but "went for it". Now I am a fan. Both were outstanding. My wife and I each had a Beet and Endive salad, mine with gorg and hers without; excellent. My wife had the Fish and Chips, and again, it was fine. There are plenty of wine choices, by the glass or bottle. It just all works!3/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
