Pub Republic Ratings and Reviews
We ate outside even though it was chilly. They were quick to accommodate us with some propane heat lamps. We ordered some drinks and food, everything was timely and tasted great. We never received waters though. In their defense we never asked or reminded them either, but with my restaurant experience I’ve always known that to be one of the first things to be put on the table without any questions. The kalua and coffee comes with whipped cream on it which isn’t indicated on the menu anywhere. I can’t do dairy and I usually double check on those things but it’d be nice if there was something that said it cake with whipped cream or if they asked if I wanted. Altogether it was nice, this was my 5th or so time here, I’ve never really had a “bad” experience - just a few minor hiccups but it’s not a big deal.
This restaurant aims to be a gastro pub with decent food, a good beer list, and some wine. Overall the food needs to be rethought - it was essentially more like standard pub fare and was really pretty greasy and heavy. I am not sure I could recommend the restaurant to anybody. They were nice, which is an upside. But the waiter was a little off - he brought a salad for which I had specifically requested NO avocado due to serious food allergies. He brought it with avocado. When I pointed it out, he said, "well I told them not to put it on there." That's indicative of a poorly managed restaurant. Maybe they will improve. That would be great.
We were happy to find a nice place where we could make reservations on Christmas Eve. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The menu is large and there's something for everyone. The ingredients are nice and fresh. But we have been spoiled recently by eating at some places where the dishes are much more than the sum of their parts and that didn't seem true here for one of the dishes. The fried calamari itself was perfectly prepared - fluffy, not greasy - but it was sitting in a bed of what was supposed to be a smoky tomato sauce that seemed to me not sufficiently flavorful given that it made the calamari touching it soggy. However, my son's salad with pears and cranberries was really wonderful, and my husband said his steak was excellent. The potato chips were really nice too. The tortilla soup was very nice, with a lot of chicken in it, but the chicken itself was a bit flavorless. The fried tortillas on top were perfectly done. Someone is really good at the fried things here! So a little hit or miss on some of the dishes, but overall a nice place to go.
Excellent burgers and pub food in a fun place in Petaluma. WE live in Novato and are trying new places- a great find. Good beer and wine choice, and superb food. WE sat at the bar and were well taken care of by the friendly bartenders. We'll be back. Fairly big place so great for a group. They have live music which we love- looking forward to seeing some on our next visit
This was my fifth time dining at Pub Republic. I have not been disappointed with anything that I have ordered. The food is always delicious and the service is great. Was seated in the patio once during a cold day, but the staff was attentive to the situation and the heaters were on! We were not forgotten sitting out there. Would recommend dining here to anyone.
Food was delicious, would definitely suggest the Bacon and Potato Nachos. These were made with house made potato chips, which were fantastic by themselves but then you cover them with cheese, bacon and a spicy chipotle sauce and you have pure goodness. Yum!!
Consistently good food, always great service. They have choices you can depend on and then specials, which are creative and yummy. I don't drink alcohol but there is a very happening bar scene here. You can have a quieter meal in a side room off of the action but still a part of the upbeat vibe. Always a good choice.
Good casual faire with a flair. Interesting appetizer and salad menu. Good enough selection of craft beers. Excellent, not your common veggie burger (wasn't a thawed patty). Saw a large party accommodated outside on the patio - seemed very comfortable, and they were having fun with speech-giving, a common menu, etc. There was no problem ordering vegetarian dishes with no cheese to accommodate vegans. Service was very friendly, and the décor unique. Although it was relatively busy on a Friday night, the table spacing and high ceilings kept the noise level moderate enabling easy dinner conversation. The ratings reflect that this is a pub with attitude - a good one. We'll be back!
Went back to Pub Republic for a date night. Had a wonderful dinner and some cold beer on a hot night! I had the special which for that night was pork tender with a pomegranate glaze with creamed spinach and carrots. DELICIOUS and just the right amount of food since I had been eating sparingly to enjoy my dinner out. My husband had the spare ribs and they were fall off the bone tender. Always enjoy our meals at Pub Republic!
This was a good place. It took a little longer to get our food than I would have liked, but even that was a very minimal inconvenience. The food was really good "pub food" and the servers were very pleasant and nice people! It was good place to chill out, and next time we're going to sit outside and see how that goes. Will definitely be back
Overall it was good. The service was not great. When we arrived to the hostess check in there where 3 employees talking and overlooking the restaurant. Not one of then acknowledged us with a hello or I will be right with you. Once we were seated the interaction was minimal. No offer of specials either food or drink. Meals were good and nice portions. Will try again in the near future.
