This restaurant, on the top (20th) floor of the Omni in downtown Corpus Christi, has an amazing view of downtown, the Gulf, the Bridge and the Blue Ghost. It is quiet and beautifully furnished, quite elegant, really.
We were there to take our granddaughter and her boyfriend to dinner on the occasion of her upcoming graduation from Texas A&M CC. The service was top notch: friendly, attentive but not intrusive, and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was very good, but nothing outstanding or unusual, and the prices were very high. Given the occasion, it was well worth it, but just be prepared for CA/NY prices.
Definitely a good special occasion place!

The steak was cooked to perfection and we could easily have just had salad and steak for the meal as the steak was definitely the centerpiece.

Was very dissappointed in the food. I'm not a first time patron and this time the food was subpar. Ordered the aged 60 day beef, $150.00. I was stunned at what they served! This is a very expensive dining experience and I expected 5 star food. It was NOT!!

Our waitress Chris was just fabulous. Her recommendations were spot on and worth every penny. It's not often you can go out for fine dining and appreciate everything served. The appetizer crab cake was delicious and the Striped Marlin w/ lump crabmeat was perfect.

The view of Corpus Christi Bay is worth a visit all by itself. The food is excellent as is the service.
Had the Bison Rib-Eye for two. 10 out of 10 points.
Only negative... because they had a party of about 16 business people they blocked all other reservations from 5:30-9:00 pm. The restaurant was half empty. I wanted to dine at 7:00 pm but had the choice of only 5:30 or 9:00. Come on, they should be able to handle more people than that!!!

This was our third time to celebrate anniversary at the Republic of Texas. We love the view, the attentive staff and the outstanding food. We had the chateaubriand with some lovely wine, having first enjoyed a drink in the bar. It is our favorite special occasion restaurant in Corpus Christi.

Server said bread would be out in 2 minutes but more like 15 minutes. Had to ask another server for items various times. Staff breaking down and setting up tables right next to my table. Even had to request check. Experience/food not worth the cost.

The food, view, and atmosphere was great. We had a table that was away from noise and the entrees were fantastic. The service was subpar, especially for the price. We waited almost 45 min for our dessert. The waiter apologized and comped the dessert, which was a kind gesture. Overall, I had far higher expectations. Will not likely be going back.

Had a girls trip to Corpus. Started at Social Hour where we had amazing drinks and appetizers. Live entertainment was perfect and 45 min later we were seated by the water. Our servers were very attentive, fun but professional. The food was exceptional! Esp the bread! Had shrimp bisque and steaks then dessert. So good! We are all in our 50’s and we decided it was one of the best dinners we have ever experienced. Keep up the good work!

This is my second time eating here and the service both times has been lacking. We eat here because of the convenience and the food is good, but both times I've been, I feel like we're waiting forever for the waiter to come by for bill, etc.

Drinks and cocktail shrimp was wonderful from the bar as we waited for our table. Being the first to arrive (with a reservation), I thought we get a Bayfront table. But, we were seated on the side that looks out over downtown. When I asked if we could be seated on the Bayfront side, it took a while to finally get a different table. We both ordered the pepperloin medium rare...and it was served medium well. The lump crab Mac&cheese was delicious!!! Service was great!

it was our 40th anniversary and had a reservation for 6:00PM. They placed us in the back of the restaurant with a very restricted view of the bay. When asked if we could move forward, we were moved two tables forward and advised that is all they could do. We watched and the front of the restaurant with the best views of the bay never filled up and there were more than a few unoccupied double tables we could have been moved to.
