This was our second time visiting this restaurant. The service is friendly and prompt. Everything we've tried, both food and drinks were delicious. We arrived late for our reservation and we were still seated immediately. I guess that's because my husband and I eat dinner early that day (about 7ish). We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will return again.

First Republic is a bar that serves really good food that turns into a nightclub after 11 PM? The food was excellent but the service was terrible! Do not dwell on the service, because the food is definitely worth trip. My compliments to the chef.

From the time my husband and I walked in until the time we walked out, we enjoyed every second of being at First Republic. The Service is AMAZING! the food, OMG Outstanding! My Drinks were PERFECT! Our Dinner Date spent at First Republic is worth every penny! My husband and I will be enjoying dinner at FR this coming week as well.

They did not have record of our reservation - which I plan on contacting Open Table to find out what happened... luckily I called ahead and they were able to accomodate us. They did, however, put us near a very loud speaker which as the night grew later - was even worse due to the dj. The food was all ok, service was also ok - but the nightlife vibe was pretty good.
