my 50's burger was tasteful, but
overpriced. It compares to the one I get at Johnny Rocket's for half the price. I also think charging $2.00 for an extra carrot on the hummus plate was a little much. Also an extra $2.00 for the gluten free roll was not expected. The side of brustle sprouts was also extra, which was not told to us when we ordered. One in my party wanted White Vinfindel, which you do not carry. I do have to say the service was good and although we were late, our table was held for us.."

This was a great spot for our
office lunch. The atmosphere at Republic is cool and rustic. Our server was very knowledgeable and efficient. We asked her about the sauce on the wrap and she was able to list the ingredients and really sell us on it."

Had an excellent experience at
Republic. Presentation and food quality were very good and unique. The deviled eggs and bourbon milkshake were the two faves of the night. Baked Alaska and onion soup closely tied for second. I can't wait to go back and try someone goodies. Highly recommend."

Nice menu selections. The wait
staff is very attentive."

We have been here a few times. The
menu is old and tired. The food was only so-so and the small plates were really,really small. The music and conveersation were loud. If you are not a twenty or thirty-something, your money would be better spent elsewhere. We will not return."

Our monthly lunch trio came to
Republic...The salads and the burgers were terrific and priced about average. The food was artfully presented. It's quite noisy but we were able to talk--a lot! The location and parking are very convenient."

We made a res thru Open Table for
a date then we had to cancel due to snow and I called the restaurant since it was only an hour before the res time and spoke to the owner and postponed to the following day, same time. We arrived and were told we had no res and the restaurant was booked solid. Then they found a table for us, a side by side in the loft, which I normally love but not that table, besides it was extremely hot upstairs. We were seated next to crying baby table. No bread was served, we had to ask for it. Our waitress was a not friendly and seemed to be irritated. I am taking them off my fave list and not recommending to friends as I have done for so long. The food was decent however, their menu pricing is odd also."

We had heard the buzz about this
great spot just over the hill a while back. We simply had not been to Bloomfield for dinner in a while. We visited for the first time and were quite impressed! We booked on-line with Open Table the day of, and were surprised to see there were few spots available -- we had a 5:15 reservation and it was a good thing we did! The restaurant filled up and up! Regardless of the desire to seat others, we had a relaxing pub-style dinner--all great entrees cooked to order (but very hearty!) Choice selections of beers and wines . . . and unique cocktails. We were enticed by the Main Course entrees floating by . . . we'll try those next time."

Reservations are essential for
dinner at this popular spot, which tends to be very noisy due to the industrial style of the decor. On this busy and crowded night the waiter got my order wrong (probably due to the noise), but recovered admirably. New dinner delivered with dispatch, accompanied by a complimentary wine refill for my friend and me. Roasted salmon on lentils with green beans was excellent, and the baked cod was very good as well. Further apologizing for the mixup, the waiter comped dessert. We shared the Earl Grey creme brûlée, which was a unique take on this ubiquitous dessert. Finally, the waiter wrapped the incorrect dinner (a salmon burger) to go and did not charge for it. I've never been disappointed here."

My friend and I came on a day
where the restaurant was not very busy with plenty of seats available both on the ground floor and upstairs. However the young lady who sits us was not very welcoming, did not smile, had a callous attitude towards us and gave us a hard time when we politely asked to be seated at more desirable spot that was clearly available. Food was great, waitress was friendly but other areas of service needs more improvement."
Dined on 2/14/2014
Republic offers a broad range of
flavors at a medium price point. The homemade hummus dip and veggies was a great start, tart flavor, just the right amount. The cod with tomato and fava beans was a wonderful blend of flavors and a great choice when you are not looking for a heavy meal. The wine list was not extensive but we were able to find something that matched our food. The wait staff was very patient, as our small group sat and talked for three and 1/2 hours, finding the right mix of attentiveness and leaving us space. I will come back with family and recommend this place to others. A warm neighborhood haunt that could become a Friday night "default," comfort spot!"

We were very excited to return to
this favorite spot and order some world famous burgers. However, all 3 burgers were very undercooked. The rest of the food was fantastic. The server never came back to check after serving our food, so 2 people just ate them as is and one was unable to eat his burger as it was too rare."
Dined on 2/11/2014
A great menu of bourbons and
beers. Food is amazing and service was exceptional."
Dined on 2/8/2014
This was our first time to
Republic, and as is the case with other Mill on the River restaurants, the food was great. This venue is lively, which is to say noisy, but this lent a vibrant quality to the conversation we had with our friends that evening. The service was good considering how busy the place was. Had we known the seating configuration ahead of time, we may have asked for a table on the first floor toward the front, which appeared to have a bit more privacy. The only true drawback to Republic is that it seems to have fallen victim to its own success: It can be difficult to find a parking spot, but like many others suffering the same fate, we left our car across the street since other businesses were closed."
Dined on 2/7/2014
The is an energetic bar with
really good American pub food. There's a good selection of light fare, appetizers, sandwiches and some entrees. We had the tuna tartar pizza which was really good. But the beer selections, in addition to the full bar, are great! Especially the local brews. I had the grilled veggie panini, which was a bit greasy, but very tasty."
Dined on 2/6/2014
I had higher expectations for this
restaurant. The food was marginal and our waitress was snippy! I won't go back."
Dined on 2/4/2014
Overall the restaurant experience
was good. Staff were very nice. Food was good, but for a restaurant that is supposed to specialize in burgers the types of burger concoctions were few and not very distinct. Although by burgers were good, it was not a distinctive as I had hoped. The burgers typically consisted of variations of carmelized onions with other fix-ins."
Dined on 2/1/2014
I've been very excited to eat at
Republic since it first opened; it comes from a group with a good reputation. We were seated in a small, attractive dining room in the front of the building. I gave the restaurant a noise rating of energetic. Truthfully, it was seriously noisy. It was a Friday night so service a little too slow. It was about 5 minutes to be told "I'll be right back", and another 5 to ask about drink orders. The food was very good. It was difficult to not pick a group of apps-they all looked good. We chose the calamari, which was terrific. The burgers and fish were perfect. One comment, both our fry orders were chewy as soon as they cooled. We'll be back when it's warmer. Maybe sit outside with a bottle of wine and apps."

Lobster mac 'n cheese was
plentiful and delicious. If you want to talk to each other ask for seating upstairs. Main floor where the bar is can be a bit loud."
Dined on 1/28/2014
Aside from the north end,
Bloomfield is not a very nice town. However the Republic and the micro brewery (who's name escapes me) are welcome additions to a town that is trying to reinvent itself. The building itself is charming and the Republic menu is diverse enough to appeal to a wide variety of people. I just wish they would remove the fish sandwich from the menu. As with many restaurants, the noise level from patrons was loud, but his was not the fault of the staff.....it's just one of those things that is a general problem in most restaurants. Keep up the good work."

My husband and I brought the
family to the Republic to celebrate our son's 23rd birthday. We all enjoyed our meals and had a wonderful time."

We were given a gift certificate
for this restaurant and used it on a snowy winter night. The food was excellent and the service was just right. I would recommend The Republic to anyone in the area."

Fantastic menu and the chef
delivered well on each item; great cocktails, great beer and bourbon list,"

We went as a family of four with
my 7 and 11 year olds and we all loved this restaurant!! Great space, great atmosphere, great menu and the onion soup is to die for!! We are going back this weekend."
Dined on 1/22/2014
We had great expectations for
Republic as we had heard good things, but were disappointed. Our server was uninterested and dismissive and the food was just "ok". The salad was overdressed to the point of being almost inedible. The fries with my husbands burger were cold and over salted, and the fried pickles, something we've enjoyed elsewhere, were greasy and the batter was far too thick. On a positive note, my salmon burger was wonderful! Possibly we hit it on a "bad night" but I don't think we will go back to find out."
Dined on 1/18/2014
The food was fresh & delicious,
from the salads to the flatbreads and the exceptional sashimi "pizza.""
Dined on 1/19/2014
My husband and I frequent this
restaurant a lot and will miss it when we move! They just created a fantastic gluten free menu which is a big plus for me. I highly recommend Republic!!"
Dined on 1/17/2014
As a local foodie, I eat in
Farmington valley, west hartford or Glastonbury numerous times a week. I'm extremely picky and not one to give a good review where it doesn't belong, but ever since finally getting to eat at Republic on Friday night I have not stopped giving it rave reviews to everyone I know. The service was wonderful, the martini delicious, my steak was perfection and the baked Alaska desert was heaven. The interior was also very modern and fun, I will recommend Republc to anyone and everyone & I will most definitely be back!"

Took my wife here because we were
looking for a different type of place. Cool atmosphere, great menu, and above average beer list. Restaurant's tag line is "Great Beer, Better Food." They have some good beer, but craft beer nuts will be disappointed. We sat upstairs and it was very loud, but we expected that. If you want a quieter dinner, ask to sit in one of the front dining rooms, where it's much quieter. My wife and I really enjoyed the food. We split the hummus for an appetizer. She had the peruvian chicken, and I had the au poivre burger. Both were very good. For dessert, my wife had the chocolate lava cake and I had the milk shake. Both were very good. We would definitely come back."

Nice place for good food. A little
too noisy for a business dinner but if not wanting to talk business, it works."
Dined on 1/15/2014
Went there with 2 friends last
Saturday night around 9:15 for late dinner in the bar. They were not too crowded. It took 10 minutes to get menus, 15 to get a beer, and 30 to get 3 appetizers. We were there for an hour and would have eaten and drank more, but our waitress was working in another room and seemed much too busy with something else than to deal with us. What a disappointment!"
Dined on 1/11/2014
They took us right away.
Everything came out warm and hot. Manager or Owner, came around to make sure it was satisfactory. We had appetizers, entrée and desserts and all were wonderful."
Dined on 1/11/2014
I love the food at Republic and
the bar is awesome. The service is always top notch and I've never had an issues with the food. My one complaint about Republic is that I feel like some items are overpriced. Some of the appetizers are small yet carry an $11-12 price tag. The food is very good, but not what I consider gourmet. For instance, my wife got a steak and cheese and it was $16. That should probably be about $12. That's just one example. Again, I really like Republic, but I would go more often if I felt like it was more reasonable for what you're getting."
Dined on 1/10/2014
Not your regular menu of items.
All were delicious and different. Waitress was attentive and helpful. Will definitely be going back."
Dined on 1/11/2014
Although the food was good
overall. The lobster sliders did not taste like lobster. I thought it would be lobster salad or chunks. It was shaped like a crab cake and obviously had too much filler. The service was rushed. We were not offered a dessert menu."
Dined on 1/10/2014
First time here and it was
terrific. The service was great and the food was delicious! Wish I had come sooner!"
Dined on 1/8/2014
Great dining room, interesting set
up on two levels. But it was very loud and the temperature of the room was too hot. The food was okay, hummus app was fine but my patty melt was way over cooked. Asked for special dietary accommodations for my wife and they were forgotten or ignored. Not a huge issue but the kind of things that won't bring me back."
Dined on 1/3/2014
My wife and I are pretty basic
when it comes to what we eat and we both were able to find something to satisfy our cravings. My wife had the baked vodka pasta and I had a burger. Both were delicious. The fresh rolls that came with the meal were fantastic but the oil that came with them had a funny taste to it. I would've preferred butter. Overall a good experience."
