The food was the worst food I have had in a long time. The waiter and service was awesome and the view amazing. But the steaks were over seasoned with salt and over cooked and dry. Will not be going back.

We had a great experience here. We chose the baked oysters as our appetizer. The spinach, capers and cream sauce were so wonderful together. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and we enjoyed our hatch Chile mac & cheese side dish. Everything was indulgent for our special occasion. Finally our server was attentive but not intrusive. She did a great job.

Wesley was fantastic and very prompt! The food was amazing. My wife and I were celebrating our second anniversary and we were given one of the tables right by the front window and couldn’t have picked a better view!

As always, the food was superb. The ambiance was awesome as well. Wait staff did not meet the food and ambiance status.It just didn’t meet my expectations from my other meals at the Republic...It was just nothing special, not bad but seemed inattentive.

Steaks tasted like they were marinated in vinegar, the house salad didn’t contain lettuce and the green oysters....my taste buds still haven’t experienced anything so nasty to compare it to. The best part was the free bread but not enough butter ... 200 dollars latter we decided never again

My husband and I got away for first time since Covid—- feb 2020

Tremendous service
They practiced distancing well

We had a table with the perfect view

Food was delicious

Suggestion:
A smaller dinner type salad on the menu would be welcomed
Garden salad was great . But just too large for one!!!

We will def return!!!!

Me and my husband had our first dinner there. The service from the waiter was horrible. He was not accommodating he did not show hospitality. He was rude. He did not say anything about the menu. He did not give us any recommendations for the menu. Food was ok, but I had way better and cheaper. The atmosphere was ok. I won't go there again. This was my first and last experience there and it was horrible.

Excellent Cuts of meat. Very flavorful. Family member has a food allergy and had advised waiter, I didn't thoroughly read the description for the appetizer I ordered. When it arrived I noticed a potential problem that I wasn't sure of as for as cross contamination. Waiter took the item to the back and since they couldn't guarantee the food safety they recooked the item by sautéing instead of frying. There not speed demons but we were into a long dinner so the 2 hours it took for the two of us worked out.

The service was great and the food was delicious. They were able to accommodate our reservation without a problem. The music was a bit out of character for that type of restaurant. We were seated on the lower level but could hear other people on upper level being really loud. If we wanted that, we would have gone to a sports bar instead of a fine dining restaurant. Overall four stars out of five.

Ordered a Rib Eye. Zero fat on it, unfortunately. Instead of cutting it, I literally had to saw thru it. It was more like a Sirloin... but even those aren’t as tough as my Ribeye was. I ate my delicious salad and Hash Browns and fed my dog the Steak when I got home. I was so disappointed that I couldn’t even cry.

Great food. Steaks cooked to perfection. Crabcake was phenomenal and big enough for an entree. Amazing views. Service was not great. Waiter would get lost for long periods of time & was not the friendliest. Beautiful bar area. Nice restaurant for a special occasion.
