Food and service are amazing at Republic!
Enjoyable tapas restaurant. Noise level is high so be prepared. Prime rib was not amazing but the grilled bronzino was fantastic. Atmosphere was energetic and exciting. I would recommend to someone who has not been at least once.
Note: the portions are extremely large for a tapas restaurant. We ordered five plates and a few drinks and couldn't finish it all
The noise was a turn off, otherwise it was good food was excellent, but the noise level made it not as pleasant as other visits there!!!
Excellent food and service. Definitely recommend the chefs table. They customize a wonderful tasting menu for you. Worth the time it takes.
My date and I researched this location’s menu while deciding where to go. We were so excited for certain dishes - but when we arrived, we were given an entirely different menu, and when we asked about it, were told “oh yeah, we change the menu weekly but we always forget to update the website, oh well!”.... ummm ok, but why on earth would you risk a new customer being disappointed in their first (only) visit?! So we looked over the menu and made new choices.... which the kitchen was out of. We ordered 3 dishes to share, and the food was good - but not amazing. It was also loud and hard to hear each other, and our service was very slow. Overall definitely not impressed.
Ambitious food styling but result was not that special compared to other higher priced restaurants in the area. Banana cake dessert was non-spectacular and rather bland.
Table location which was confirmed booked over phone ahead of time was not provided when arriving there (on time). Tables very crammed together.
The sea bass was best I've ever had. Presentation was outstanding.
A unique dining experience as the menu changes daily depending on the local produce that is available. Chris was an excellent server and we thoroughly enjoyed our birthday celebration there.
We order the chef’s choice it turn out to be just a
selection of the food menu. Disappointing,
Had a terrible experience. Friend let the waitress know that he had a peanut allergy ahead of our dinner service and we ended up in the ER later that night due to a terrible reaction to peanuts. He almost lost his life.
Will never return to this restaurant again and warn anybody from eating there with food allergies.
We arrived for an 8:00 reservation for four and were seated immediately. Our server was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. We ordered two plates to share and each ordered an entrée. The portions were large and all dishes were very good. As each was brought to the table the server explained each composition in detail. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The Executive Chef to the time to stop by for conversation.
We order the chef tasting menu. So much food we almost couldn’t eat it all, and it came with desert. Great food, drinks were outstanding, and all the staff was attentive. Great place for great food, with a laidback atmosphere.
Small menu with great food. Service was good and ambiance was nice. It’s noisy though. Will go back to check there ever changing menu 👍👍
Had reservation for 2 , not crowded by all means, sat next to bathrooms..really, drinks just ok, food ok desert awful
Service from the bar was really slow but the waiter apologized a couple times.
Absolutely live Republic
Sat at bar-side table, cushioned seating along outside wall was quite comfy. Seemed somewhat less noisy than in main dining area and gave panoramic view of the whole space. Server Jake was very good, stopped by just often enough to check in and keep things moving. Had the Chef's tasting menu for the two of us, it was more than enough food & great way to taste wide range of dishes. Overall, great vibe and fantastic food!
Creative menu, awesome cocktails. Server didn’t realize she had our table but more than made up for it once we figured it out
Food was great - unique and tasty, fantastic cocktails and great service.
Would recommend to everyone!!
Food, service, ambiance was all great
Reservation: 5:45pm (early right?) Going to see a play after dinner. Seated right away. Greeted, water was poured, menu was explained, drinks ordered. Received drink at 6:30pm. I'm not a clock watcher, but this was crazy. Husband's soda had no carbonation or flavor, wanted something different. Took 10 more minutes. Ordered dinner at 6:30. First plate (bread and butter) took 15 minutes to arrive. Fish was good, Onion tarte was very good. Short ribs arrived at 7pm, and was barely room temperature. Wanted to love this place. Was looking forward to a great night. Hamilton more than made up for the lack of performance on Republic's part. I've never written a bad response, but was so bad, others should go in with eyes wide open. I wish you luck if you try this location. Could have been a completely different experience
They changrd the menu and the chef, since then horrible , portions and taste is horrible, it used to be an awesome place
Our second time at Republic and it was as great as the first. Truly one of the best places to eat in Detroit. Even my husband, who is a staunch meat eater, loves their vegetable dishes. Can't wait to go again!
super super super super super super super super yummy.
M’y wife and I enjoyed the culinary landscape that is developing in Detroit and this restaurant add up nicely to Detroit! Great experience.
This is mainly a restaurant with a small menu with to rotating seasonal and locally sourced items. The dishes are excellent and quite
We all enjoyed the class of this restaurant. The service was great and the food was awesome. Be sure to dine at Republic.
In the words of the Terminator “I’ll be back!” I will bring Friends and Family with us.
I had a beautiful evening with a gorgeous lady sharing our experiences. The food and the service was outstanding.
Food was great. I love the local farm to table dishes.
The chefs tasting is worth it!
Had a great dinner at Republic. Friendly service, good recommendations. The charcuterie platter is delicious always. Stand outs ... the mushroom salad and the meatballs! Will definitely be back.
The wait staff were very friendly and attentive . We loved the family style dining ; it allowed everyone to enjoy different entrees and sides . Would definitely return .
Enjoyed it very much. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and attentive.
Wonderful experience, great food, attentive server, would gladly come back for a return visit.
It was a really nice experience. We would definitely recommend.
Highly recommend the Chef's Tasting Menu! Incredible selections - and a great amount of food.
Absolutely phenomenal meal, service and cocktails! Will be returning and spreading the news.
Did a late Valentines dinner, service and food was awesome, the drunk girl at the next table over was rather loud though
I’ve been here 4 times and it’s always amazing. I never write reviews but everyone needs to know how great this place is! Delicious, flavorful, perfectly cooked food, yummy cocktails, great atmosphere.
