    Nice gem of a place. Contemporary in its style as well with its dishes. I think reasonably priced for food. Great for date nite. A lot of hard surfaces so it was kind of loud with the restaurant 1/3 full when we were there late at night. Hope they can stay open. Seems like a lot of small restaurants downtown are struggling to keep the door open these days.

    2nd time, and once again it was a true culinary experience... And I don't say that about other places. You've got to try the onion soup dumplings, the crab toast and the vegetable pachadi salad.

    After an event at the Museum Center, we decided to dine downtown. I had heard about Crown Republic so made a reservation. We were so impressed. Loved the Kale Cesar and the Sunday special of Bolognese. Perfect dinner.

    Loud energized environment, server was very nice. We started out with a wedge salad and everything knots. Both were amazing, we were very excited for our entrees but we were massively let down. The pork chop is breaded and pounded flat and absolutely tasteless and the steak was doused in sauce that was far too sweet. The sides were cold. The cost was not worth it in our opinion

    This was our first time dining here. We were pleased with the atmosphere and the employees were all friendly. Our server was helpful in recommending different dishes, and he was so apologetic when he had to advise us that they were out of the house red wine and two of the beer choices that my husband wanted to try. All three of us enjoyed our different pasta choices. The portions were just right, but meant that we didn't have enough for any leftovers.

    I would give 10 stars or more! Our waiter was very efficient, friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding! Onion dumpling soup - would go just for that! We split housemade rigatoni and wings, both excellent. The atmosphere is very trendy. I would eat here once a week if I lived closer!

    Strong choice for food quality. Service is friendly without being cloying. My only complaint is that the high top tables and chairs are metal, and on a cold night, cold. The abundance of glass gives a cool city ambience, but "cozy" it is not. Nobe of this will stop me from going there ... its the best quality food around, and not a hint of pretense.

    We had brunch on Sunday and the food was outstanding. There is a twist to all popular dishes on the menu. Great service as well. However, we thought the 20% was an extra service charge to help during Covid. It's confusing...is that for the servers or the whole staff? Are we supposed to tip extra or what? We didn't care for that and we haven't seen this anywhere else lately.

    Our first visit to this restaurant definitely won’t be our last. Our server was attentive, friendly and provided over the top service. Restaurant is busy and sometimes quite noisy so not for those looking for a quiet meal. Our food was delicious and we especially enjoyed splitting the apple dessert suggested by our server-. It’s a great place for a pre- theater meal - only a block away from Aronoff

    The food is outstanding. The menu is pasta centric but has something for everyone on it. There are some items to comeback for each time like the wings, meatballs, pata dinners, and signature coctkails. I will keep coming back. We were there at the peak time to dine and the noise level made conversation a challenge.

    We visited Crown Republic Gastropub while visiting Cincinnati for a show at a local theater. The reservation was early (for us) at 4 PM. Upon entering, it was clear we didn’t need reservations as the tables were completely empty and only a few people at the bar. Regardless, the host chose to seat us in the very back corner of the restaurant right next to a curtain separating us from what sounded like the back of the kitchen. The staff in that area were so loud we couldn’t talk over them. They were using very inappropriate (racist) language. There was no need to seat us there and it made most of the visit uncomfortable. By the time we were considering asking to be moved the restaurant had filled up so there weren’t many options and we decided to sit through it. The food was decent. We started with the Burrata & Tomato Jam, the cheese had no flavor and the jam was way too sweet, this cam recommended from our server. It was a large portion and we did not finish it (because of the size and dessert taste). We next split a wedge salad that was excellent, the dressing and blue cheese were great. I ordered the stake and frites, the steak was about 40% fat and gristle, so most of it was thrown out. It was, however, cooked as I requested. The amount of shoestring fries was massive. They were tasty, but just too much. Atmosphere: 2 Food: 3 Service: 5 Overall: 3 If I’m in the area again, I might revisit, but not without checking out other spots first.

    Had a large party (10), and were initially sat at a high top. I have older parents and they moved us immediately to a better table for them. The wait staff were wonderful, the food came quick and was delicious from everyone's perspective, young to old. The birthday girl got a special little treat and we all had a great time. Thanks for a wonderful dinner.

    Our first experience was a great one. Everyone at our table of 4 was impressed with our brunch at Crown Republic. The menu items were creative with incredible flavor and prepared to perfection. Our server, Savannah, was pleasantly conversational and answered all of our restaurant and menu questions with confidence. Pacing was perfect, and our meals were delivered in an expedient manner. The baked egg dish was a unique combination of flavors which we had not experienced before and left us so pleased with our choice. We will be back for dinner. This restaurant should be on everyone's hot list.

    Nice place handicapped by mediocre food. Pleasant server: a few minor mistakes with the timing of the main dishes. The two appetizers were great: octopus tabuleh and kale and celery salad shared by the table. The main pasta dishes were forgettable. The papardelle was way over cooked; more like a gluey mess.

    Crown Republic Gastropub was an amazing treat! Starting with the salad that had so many flavors and textures, then the everything garlic knots with vegetable herbed butter, followed by the pappardelle (holy yum!) and finishing with apple cake (a flavor explosion that also melts in your mouth), the meal was a culinary delight! Sharing items on the menu allowed us to enjoy everything without getting overly dull. Oh honorable mention - the ABRA was a unique and flavorful cocktail!
