    The food and drinks here were good but not outstanding. The ambience is nice and the servers and staff very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our meal but it wasn't amazing.

    We had reservations late in the afternoon as we had Bill Burr Tickets at 7 pm. Found CRG as it was within walking distance from The Curio/Cincinntanian Hotel and the show. OMG my husband is STILL speaking about our dinner at CRG 24 hours later. It was THAT incredible. So incredible I didn’t get to capture any pics we dove in and just absolutely loved every bite of our meal. Wings - SO GOOD. BBQ with a blueberry flair. Cheeseburger and Fries. SO many think stick fries. And cooked medium as asked. Just delightful. Burrata/Jam on Toast with a hint of seasoning that will melt in your mouth. We had a couple of Tequila and Honey cocktails ditching the Old Fashion and original Sauvignon Blanc as this signature cocktail was just way too good. We love fine dining. Casual dining. An occasional dive bar dining. Crown Republic Gastropub truly made an impression of unforgettable dining. Everything was in balance and all so good. Staff was awesome. Food was incredible. We will totally be back when we visit Cincinnati again.

    Food was Fantastic!!!! Service was less than desired. Had a hard time getting our server’s attention. She seemed “inconvenienced “ by us. Maybe she was just having a bad night .

    Went with a group of 8 at 5 on a Friday night. Our group was easily accommodated, service was fantastic, and menu options were suitable for 2 vegetarians + 6 omnivores. Wine selection good, and had great handcrafted cocktails. I will definitely go again.

    Music was way too loud as we couldn’t even hear each other across the table. Acoustics are not good there. Our waitress was doing her very best yet they seemed completely unprepared for the post and pre Hamilton crowd. Food was ok. Best to skip the entrees and stay with shareable small plates.

    What a fun surprise. We opted for a meal of appetizers and small plates and loved every single bite. Highly recommend the burrata and tomato jam, garlic knots, onion soup dumplings and broccoli. Service was exceptional. We will be back the next time we are in town

    We really appreciated being sat earlier than our reservation time, and inside instead of out! Kale Caesar salad was crunchy and bright. Meatball appetizer was described as being “mini” but they were pretty normal sized, with four on the plate. They were delicious with the toasted bread. The spinach pasta was more like a dumpling but my toddlers loved it. Steak added to the gnocchi was cooked perfectly and the desserts were amazing and enjoyed by all!

    This was not our first time at Crown Republic but it's the first time I've been disappointed. I ordered a Hibiscus Fizz and it did not mention having egg white in it on the menu. It was a thick, semi cold concoction that I should have sent back but didn't. I do not like egg white in my drink and think it should definitely be listed, especially for those with allergies. I ordered the mushroom capellini for dinner. While it did taste good, there were a ludicrous amount of mushrooms on it. I love mushrooms but this was crazy. It has way more mushrooms than pasta. I left at least a pint of them in the bottom of the plate. My husband got the salmon which was good but not great. On a positive note I did get the green side salad which was phenomenal. Perfectly dressed and delish! The staff was friendly and helpful too. Overall disappointing experience.

    Garlic knots are a definite plus: hot and delicious and very shareable. Gnocchi was tasty, but I liked my soup better. Friends ordered burgers which they felt were delightful. The restaurant was new to them. Service was a little slow, but it was a busy day and we were happy with time to chat. Noise level was the only thing that deterred a 5 star review.

    Are we went to crown republic for my sister’s 50th birthday. We had a party of 10. The cocktails are adventurous and I candy. The food is unbelievable. Our party tried almost every item on the menu and everything was amazing. We couldn’t talk about anything else for the rest of the night.

    Food was well prepared and consistent with the menu. It was very good, but not great, missing that one element that would have put it in the outstanding category. Service was very good, friendly, not overbearing. Kudos for an affordable wine list, although it could've been a bit more comprehensive.

    The food is always excellent at Crown Republic. In addition the service is very good as well. My only note is that because the place is regularly full, the noise level makes it difficult to hold a conversation with your table guests.

    We went for brunch yesterday and everyone raved about their particular dishes. Everything was outstanding. Our server Sophie was great. She was friendly and attentive and had plenty of recommendations. Noise level was to be expected for a gastropub but it wasn't so loud that the four of us couldn't hear each other. Lots of natural light even for a cloudy day. Lively atmosphere. Will definitely make a point to go back. Highly recommend.
