The food was fabulous and each course included some ingredient or treatment that was brand new to me. The servers were extremely knowledgable about the dishes and about the source of the unique ingredients. The staff was friendly and mostly helpful.
On the more critical side, there were several small hiccups that I think could be easily improved! I know the restaurant opened during the pandemic and is surely working on getting up to full speed, so just go in with a little extra patience and flexibility!
Amazing experience! Excellent service!
A very fun experience! It’s like dinner and a show. The wait staff makes the evening. Get the wine pairings with dinner, it’s really fun.
The tasting menu was delicious but portions were smaller than one might expect. Wines are all from Mexico and unfamiliar and lower on flavor. Lots is explanation of each menu item as it arrived which was alternately fun and Lon winded. Left a bit hungry, but again, food was delicious.
Loved the 5-course menu and the background around the featured ingredients. The historical connection was really nice and just a different experience than anything we have in Portland. The plating was beautiful and the flavors were wonderful, OBVIO! Thank you for sharing this beautiful side of Mexico food. Con mucho amor y sabor!
This was a truly exceptional experience regarding Mexican food. the fresher than fresh ingredients, creative presentation, unusual ingredients and a Mexican focused wine list was surprising and exhilarating. the friendly and informative service made for a thrilling and unique restaurant experience. A real find!
The food was awesome and the way they describe every plate, the history and origins of the ingredients with such passion just makes the whole experience even more extraordinaire!
Republica has most unique 5 course tasting menu in the city. Mexican or otherwise. Get either regular or veg selection, or if there are at least two of you, get both and share. You will be surprised by every course. Can be paired with tequila or wine (get the tequila).
Hard to get a res. Plan ahead for special occasion.
Amazing food. Creative, delicious, unusual. I think the plant-based option was the best. I was still thinking about it the next day. I will be back
One of my best dining experiences ever. Such a gem in Portland and a must-do!
An amazing experience and literally the best meal of my life.
Creative, unique thoughtfully prepared meal.
Soooooo good! Go now! Don't wait. Such an amazing experience and tasty menu for the price.
The food was delicious, staff was very friendly and very informative on the history of the food. Definitely going back.
The food was fabulous the win/mezcal pairings were perfection. The service was so great. Thank you!!!
I am giving this 5 stars because my husband and I had an unpretentious, beautiful, delicious 5 course meal with wine pairings at a VERY reasonable price. Now, if you hear 5 courses and think Michelin star dining experience, it is not: napkins are paper, no one switched silverware or even glassware for the first 3 pours, dishes came out too soon (didn’t get to enjoy the cocktail). All that said, if you’ve never tried huitlacoche or cucumber/grapefruit pearls or ant larva (which was a first for me) and want to enjoy a history/foodie adventure, I would highly recommend.
Everything about Republica was amazing! The food, the wine, the service. Cannot wait to come back again soon!
Superb dining experience! Each course was artfully presented, explained lovingly and was a sensory adventure. Every bite was unique and delicious.
Absolutely the most delightful experience. The food was incredible and the service was above par. It was so fun to learn about the ingredients and history of each course. Thank you so much!
What a fabulous experience in every way! Food was amazing and the cultural and historical context for the food made it all the more engaging and unique. Loved it!
Fantastic food, service, and presentation. Great back story provided by staff on the ingredients and how they are represented in the food. You can tell everyone at the restaurant cares about the food and experience.
Great service and great food, very pleasant evening.
5 courses paired with wine. A bit of history with each dish. Delicious and beautiful presentation!
Fantastic meal, great service, excellent drinks. Can't wait to return.
Best multi-course meal I’ve had. Unpretentious, thoughtful, intentional, creative, and beautiful.
Everything about this place is worth revisiting again and again!
Wow! What an incredible experience. Every ingredient thought out, every dish delicious. I would highly recommend adding this to your list of "Must have" dinning experience in Portland.
Incredibkr on every level, service and food
An AMAZING and unique dining experience! I haven't been to a ton of places in Portland, but I would say it's the best dining experience I've had in this city. The staff were extremely hospitable, as well as caring/knowledgeable about the food and drinks. Serving only a tasting menu that changes weekly is genius. Every dish was delicious and plated beautifully. We got the agave pairings and it was soooo good, a very interesting palate experience since I have little experience drinking mezcal.
This was a fun and delicious experience. We loved the mezcal pairing, the explanation of food and drinks.
Good creative, beautiful on the eye, taste was fair! Service was friendly and heartfelt
This was the BEST dinner ever. Came for my birthday and each course that came out was better than the one before. We also loved that the staff took the time to explain each course to us, made the dinner experience feel more personal and intimate. We also did the wine pairing which was definitely worth it.
Republica is special. There is so much care that goes into every aspect of this restaurant. It feels like a gift.
Go experience this place! The food, the stories, the people who work there, everything at Republica is top notch.
Has the best experience at dinner and will be back for lunch!
Phone number doesn’t work and restaurant was closed, even with a reservation
The Chef, and each and every one of the service staff, could not have been more professional. Each was more than happy to explain the Chef's tasting we enjoyed. Great experience,
Tasting menu was such a fun experience, love learning about the history of dishes/ingredients being used. Food was 11/10, loved every dish.
The food was truly amazing just wished the portions were a tad bit bigger during the chef special tasting menu. Besides that I love this place can’t wait to go back to try another item on their menu. The homemade tortillas are the best. The chef definitely makes the food with love and also uses ingredients that his ancestors used truly amazing!!
One of the best meals I've had in Portland in a LONG time - loved the explanations by the staff of the history of the food, such a thoughtfully put together meal.
