    Love this place. Haven't been disappointed yet. I have been here 3 times. Servers are attentive and the food comes out quick. I love the atmosphere. It's a prefect place to begin your night out. It's festive and always puts me in a good mood. I like the cozy dining area. I also like the twist they put a twist on all of your favorite Mexican dishes. plus there are plenty of interesting appetizers to choose from. They also have churros with chocolate and caramel dipping sauces!! Awesome. Check out there menu. Still one of my favorite spots.

    My party was put in the empty back room even though several tables were available in the more desirable front. Shrimp and steak fajitas were inedible, though the very nice waiter took them off the bill without my asking. Wouldn't return unless it was just for the bar.

    We went for an early birthday celebration with my son and his girlfriend-so the company was perfect starting out. I had Ahi Tuna Fajitas,which on top of being healthy,actually tasted great too! My husband loved the chicken he ordered,and I didn't hear any complaints from my son and his girlfriend,who had a vegetarian enchilada. We had a great time,and could hear ourselves talk! Couldn't ask for any more!

    Dinner at Tortilla Republic is always nice. With three distinct dining areas, you can experience anything you like, from a lively bar scene in the main room, to a pleasant outdoor dining experience on the patio, to a quiet dinner in the back/rope room. The Happy Hour food is delicious and easy. I have been many times, and I will be going back many times.

    I've been here a number of times and enjoyed the food each time. This is not Tex-mex. The flavors are much more complex. The staff are friendly and efficient. The only negative is that the room seems to amplify the chatter and noise to an intolerable level. On a busy night you practically have to scream to have a conversation. The back room is much more amenable to conversation.

    Tortilla Republic is conscious to the food of the original inhabitants of Mexico, which was almost entirely vegetarian and fat free: And they are committed to foodies - using fresh & locally sourced produce, Mary's Free Range chickens, and organic vegetables. They even offer Gluten free lunch, brunch, or dinner menus. It's appetizer of duck confit tacos - say no more, are delish. They are filled with a sour cherry salsita, shaved radish, and cilantro cream. Their entree ( or principles) of Pollo Arroz con Pollo Molè sauce is dark, rich and complex-flavored. The Chili Verde Short Rib is prime all natural meat - spicy roasted tomatillo & jalapeño chile.

    After reading some of the other reviews we were somewhat skeptical to try the restaurant but our experience at Tortilla Republic was terrific - the server was friendly & attentive. She knew the menu well & made good suggestions. The ahi fajitas & salmon were delicious as was the vegetarian enchillada. We sat on the patio...although there was some street & restaurant noise we had no problem conversing. Parking was easy - we parked in the lot behind the restaurant. Definitely look forward to returning.

    It was a great Restaurant, but not anymore. What can we say when a Mexican restaurant serves bad-tastingguacamole that is not fresh? You can imagine the rest… The Duck Tacos used to be the best. Nowthey are chewy and tasteless… And finally, at the end of the dinner when I was trying to save the night with some dessert, the waiter came with the BILL and not the dessert menu. YES, just like that! I was a faithful customer and recommended this restaurant to dozens of people. Not anymore! Go to Gracias Madre down the road, even if you are not a vegetarian.

    Went here for restaurant week and was not disappointed. The white sangria was so refreshing on the hot summer day. The tortilla flatbread with the squash blossoms was nice and light. The star was the avocado leaf crusted halibut, which is my favorite fish; it was cooked perfectly and served on a bed of kale and mashed sweet potato (large portion and I couldn't finish it because I wanted to save room for dessert). I had the most amazing dessert, the flourless chocolate cake baked with red pepper spice or something similar, with the salty caramel gelato. This had an initial sweet smooth chocolate taste, followed by the salty sweet caramel and finished with the spice kick in the end. Delicious! I'm definitely coming back.

    I have been unhappy w/ the scarcity of good Mexican in BH and nearby. We went to Tortilla Republic because I saw its menu and address in DineLA. We sat on the patio (that why it was quiet). The food was excellent, and the server very warm as well as efficient. we will definitely come here often. Great margarita on special too.

    I tried the restaurant during LA Dine week, hoping it would be something new and fun. Sadly, it wasn't. They did the whole "would you like some chips and salsa" then charging us $2 for the average chips and $8 for guacamole we didn't even want. The waiter was distracted and couldn't keep track of our order and it was hard to get the water refilled. Basically its overpriced average Mexican food

    The food itself was terrific as was our server. But the noise level on a Friday night is extreme. We were celebrating our first "official" anniversary. Unfortunately it was Dine LA week and we were seated at a table for two between two six-tops. The drunken screams and yelps from the tables on either side made it impossible to enjoy dinner. It was a disaster. We could not hear each other at all. Never eating here on a weekend night again.

    We live down the street, so it is an easy place to frequent, especially for happy hour since they are one of the few places that has outdoor seating and if you hit happy hour early during the week, it is not too busy. However the past several occasions, we have had a waiter that literally wears the look on his face of "what the heck am I doing here-I hate my job". We have had the same guy serve us three times, all with the same type of service. That was the last time as we will now take our business elsewhere. What a shame, as it is an easy spot for us.

    As I approached the restaurant, I panicked at the noise spilling out on the sidewalk. We were meeting friends to catch up. Not possible to catch up with the hubbub inside. Luckily, our friends arrived before us and were already seated in the "rope" room, where the noise level was about 1073 decibels less. My friend had read a review with a recommendation about the "rope" room. I add my recommendation. The other part of the restaurant looked like fun if you don't mind yelling over the din. There's city public parking right behind the restaurant. You don't have to pay exorbitant valet parking fees. The food was very good and the margaritas even better. We'll go back to the rope room.

    What is served in TR is not authentic Mexican food In my opinion. They serve an 'invented' and unnecessarily complicated menu which has no great or outstanding taste for a reasonably high price. In fact this restaurant is a fancy place to enjoy the good ambient and not the food. Bar and drinks are excellent but the food sucks.

    I dont really expect much from mexican cuisine restaurants because they usually fail to impress me. Being mexican myself I do have a higher standard of what good mexican food is. Tortilla Republic pleasantly surprised me! I had the mole enchiladas and the mole was very good. My friend had the shrimp taco appetizer and she really enjoyed them. The ambiance was great and the drinks were good. 2 negatives - Our waiter was slow and didnt have much of a personality, so that was a bummer. Also the restaurant charges for salsa, which I found very odd. When a waiter asks if you'd like chips and salsa I don't think the majority of customers would assume that they would then be charged almost $4 for SALSA!

    Perhaps it was because it was a holiday weekend and maybe the regular chef took some time off but........after the guacamole, it was all downhill. The food was only lukewarm (not a first here), my husband's short rib was nothing short of boiled meat in hot water (not their usual preparation) and my duck enchiladas were cloyingly sweet......again, not the way I've had them before. It was as though someone stuck the sweet duck meat used for the tacos in some tortillas and doused them in sauce. My vegetarian friend could barely get through her chile rellanos and let's face it, it's pretty hard to mess up a vegetable dish. We are all so disappointed!
