    The room was cold to start with which made everyone uncomfortable. My baked potato was undercooked, hard. My steak was great. While the waitress was very nice, she was a little forgetful of things.

    All of the staff we encountered were friendly and very helpful. The service was quick, but allowed enough time to really enjoy the view, the live music, and the delicious food. They offered a good variety of food choices. We had the bison steak and fresh catch of the day. Both did not disappoint. Our evening here was very enjoyable. We would definitely go back next time we are in Corpus Christi.

    After we were seated we waited 15 mins for our server to show up to our table. Support staff was amazing bringing us water and bread. We finally ordered drinks and then food. My soup showed up 2 mins before my entree so i was unable to enjoy it. Entree was not good. Steak lacked flavor. Creamed spinach was bland and so was the scalloped potatoes. We ordered the same cocktail and it came back a completely different drink. For what we paid it was very disappointing. We will not be going back.

    Perfect ambiance and outstanding service. We sat at the bar as we arrived in advance of our reservation. My wife had a Manhattan and I a smoked old fashioned Mae from my choice of a wide variety of whiskeys, bitters and woods for smoke. We were seated and enjoyed a fantastic oyster dish followed by rack of lamb and quail. The sauces with each dish were fantastic. We do not live in Corpus Christi, but plan a return trip soon to enjoy the dining experience again.

    Like most restaurants Republic of Texas was struggling during covid, but they have now returned to their former glory as an A+ restaurant in the Coastal Bend - in the top 3 for sure. Our Christmas Eve dinner included about 10 sumptuous appetizers (a one stop tapas experience) and all were over the top. You would think one or two could have been improved, but NO they were all perfect - just like the ambience and service. Thanks to Rep of Texas for the mini vacation during an otherwise busy and hectic time - awesome job!

    Food was a disappiontment. We eat here every Christmas or special occasion and I don't know if they switched chef's or suppliers but the quality of food was sub par. We had the chef's special and it was a bland piece of filet mignon, over cooked shrimp and crab meat that contained the internal cartlidge all throughout every bite. Their sides have always been fantastic but were just okay this trip. Service and atmosphere were great. Appetizer was great and we had high hopes for dinner. However, 4 meals out of 4 were less than good and for a $550. 00 meal including tip, I expect stellar food start to finish. We had a second reservation next week and we have canceled. Very sad to leave this review.

    We sat at the bar while waiting for the rest of our party to show. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the live music. Once we sat down to dinner, our waitress, Christina was very pleasant and responsive. I ordered the salmon which was seasoned perfectly but did encounter a few bones in it that I didn’t except. The Brussel sprouts were a bit on the crunchy side and lacked flavor. My husband ordered the filet mignon and said it was also seasoned very well. We ordered garlic mashed potatoes and scalloped potatoes, both of which also lacked any flavor. Perhaps some salt or other seasonings would have helped but there wasn’t any on the table and honestly, we were pretty full from the amazingly delicious bread and the scallops & shrimp appetizers we ordered. We ordered cheesecake for dessert but it fell short of my expectations so I think the next time we dine there, I’ll try to crème brûlée. We are from the Dallas area so I don’t know when we’ll get back this way but we definitely would eat here again if the opportunity arises.

    Our server, Christina, made our experience. She gave good counsel on food and wine. My steak was perfect. My husband felt his shrimp was a little bland. My son's steak was great even though he was comparing it to his favorite steakhouse in NY. Nice meal and great views.

    Everything was great for our 27th wedding anniversary. However, I wish we would have gotten a better table without the giant pillar next to me. The only thing that you could have done better is to somehow remove the condensation on the enormous windows so we can see the beautiful view below. We purposely reserved a 5:30pm slot so we could have a view of the city and possibly sunset instead of just blackness and lights when nightfall comes.

    They seated us a a table with a bad view, so we asked to be moved. The wine menu and entree menus were never removed from the table. The wedge salad was excellent, the roasted chicken was boring. A glass of Rodney Strong Chardonnay was $12 and the glass was served 2” full. What a ripoff. Won’t go again.
