Pub Republic Ratings and Reviews
Sometimes the reviews on YELP are spot on. We were a little apprehensive in ordering a burger because so many reviewers complained that there's was not cooked properly ! Sure enough, my husband's (ordered medium) came out very well done. To their credit the wait staff and manager couldn't have been more apologetic, but the damage was done and the substitute rueben sandwich just didn't go down well. If a restaurant can't cook a burger properly 99.9% of the time they should take it off the menu.
Most of the entrees were cold - sent them back - they didn't return until 20 minutes later and while no longer cold - the hamburger (which supposedly they are famous for) was very overcooked for the second time. Someone came over to apologize -but no change in the billing or any other offering of a free dessert or anything else.
we ordered four medium burgers, three of the four burgers where raw. I took a bite of mine as sometimes I can do medium rare and my burger was cold and wet in the middle. Not cooked all the way through. I had to send it back and the waitress made some rude comments to me. They brought it back out and the meat was more cooked but there was raw hamburger all over the bun. It was disgusting! We will not be returning :(
They were ready for us when we arrived. The service was excellent! The food was very good, but the eggs Benedict were a little disappointing. The eggs were too well done, and the hollandaise was too skimpy.
Nice place, good ambiance, easy parking. Altogether a success.
Decided to have lunch here with friends from out of town as this was a 30 min. drive for each couple, based solely on reviews on OpenTable. What a great decision! We had a table in the corner of the restaurant where we could catch up.
Our friends each had a salad and my husband and I split the Reuben and Fried Chicken sandwich. Everybody was happy with their selection. I especially liked the Reuben on marble rye and the fries were perfectly done and hot. My husband can't split anything equally, so my few bites of the chicken sandwich while quite satisfying but not enough. I knew I should have cut it myself. Loved the texture of the bun as it didn't crumble apart with the Chipotle sour cream and coleslaw on the chicken. Yumm.
Too full for desert, but great service as the server kept refilling ice teas and water. We were maybe the last ones in the restaurant (except for those at the bar) and we were told to take our time. Very accommodating!
Happy to have discovered a new place (for us) in Sonoma, we'll be back!
We had another great evening at the Pub, which has become our local and a go to. The menu is creative and the specials always good. Our evening was made perfect by our server Ari, she has a great personality, very engaging and tons of fun to be around. She looks like a brunette version of Taylor Swift so you can't miss when you go!
hostess had no problem with our choosing a table that was quiet, decor/ambiance was pleasant and comfortable, food was good value but a little slow, service was attentive. Will definitely return and try other items on the extensive menu--had no room for dessert, but there were many appealing options.
The food and beer selection were good, though the wait for our meals was long (approximately half an hour). We were in no hurry and were catching up with friends we hadn't seen in a while, so it didn't matter, but if time is a consideration you might want to factor that in. Two of us had the Reuben, the others had burgers. All said that their food was good; my fries stayed crispy, which is a plus. The draft beer selection is very good too.
Great food. . . all of us enjoyed our meal. I though my burger was especially juicy and delicious. Also, the reservation system worked perfectly. We arrived and our table was waiting for us. It happened to be a night where a local band played. The music was great and the vocalist was very good.
Have been here before, and will definitely come back!
Very comfortable place for a casual dinner or lunch. Helpful waitpeople who aided in seating a family member with a disability. Many choices on their menu..generous portions and comfort
food. Their reputation for great hamburgers is well deserved! The only very slight complaint is that the fried chicken was a little too fried! Salads are exceptional..we ordered half-salads and the order was so large that it took two people to finish one salad. Nice wine list in a holiday themed setting. Everyone voted to return!
So happy to see that Pub Republic has joined Open Table and reservations are now accepted. We live close-by this restaurant and find it a convenient place to frequent when in the mood for a high-quality burger. A tasty gluten free bun is an option which is a plus for the members of our family that are GF. Portions are generous. At this visit the manager came by our table to check that we were satisfied which provided a nice touch.
Pleasantly surprised at how nice this Sports Bar was inside, fun bar area & their food was way above my expectations!
Met family there for a birthday lunch, quiet time of day. Host and server were attentive, nice & professional.
Will come back when weather is warmer to sit outside in their nice garden area next to creek!
Enjoyed an afternoon lunch with friends. We all cam from out of town and had not see each other in a year. It was a nice time to catch up. The food was great. I ordered a veggie burger and it was delicious. Our server was very kind and we got to realx and enjoy each other for a long while and not rushed through our meal or visit.
Pub Republic is a good neighborhood restaurant with an easy going vibe. I've eaten at Pub Republic many times, this time I was disappointed. The Short Ribs that I ordered turned out to be fatty and not as 'melt' in your mouth quality, which is what I look forward to when I order Short Ribs. Our server was not very attentive, no refills on water, barely clearing empty dishes, so that by the end of the meal we had empty wine glasses, empty water glasses, food plates, etc.
I definitely would say there is room for improvement.
Also, that evening Parking was not to be found!!! This is a big problem in this particular strip mall, there are too many eating establishments, etc. for the number of parking spaces. I ended up having to park 'off-site' which was inconvenient.
Love this place but this time my regular Brussels - bacon hash wasn't as good as in the past. Lots of char that affected the taste of the food and most of the bacon pieces were overly burnt. I'll try it again but it was somewhat disappointing. However, we had 8 in our party and most of the other dishes were well-enjoyed.
Pub Republic is our favorite restaurant in Petaluma. It doesn't hurt that it's right around the corner from our home. We take all of our visiting friends and family there. We've never had a bad meal at Pub Republic. Our favorite is the Sat/Sun brunch. Highly recommended. Just leave a seat for us!
It was a nice dining experience but I've had the same waitress before and she's always horrible. My son asked for another glass of wine and she never brought it until we were having dessert and he asked for it again. She's in over her head and is not taking the time to properly wait on tables. I'm probably going to stop going there for a while
Everytime we go here, the food is very good, the service is great, and the experience is awesome. They have a large beer menu that changes with the seasons and local breweries. There are options for everyone include GF, veggie, and picky eaters. It is a pub, but with higher end food. The Gf hamburger bun is so good, you will question it! The truffle fries are a must have!
