Only one vegetarian option. There needs to be more than just pasta as an option for vegetarians. Had to piece meal a meal and the vegetables were soaking in butter. So rich my stomach killed afterwards. Other 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!

Great views and good food. Hostess was great however our server was virtually non existent. Some of our order was never served and we sat for quite some time after finishing our meal before he came by to see if we wanted anything else.

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.

Went to ROT for our 25th anniversary. First time here. Very elegant environment. But not intimidating re: being slightly underdressed. The food wait was a little on the lengthy side (about 1 hr) , but the wait was well worth it. Food was delicious, the ambience was low-lit and relaxing with several layers of seating areas. And, the service was superb.

We had a good experience. A few issues. Hair in the wine glass, steak came out under cooked and took quite a while to get it back, and when i did it was the wrong steak. Kitchen guy came running out with my steak. Fortunately, none of these minor issues affected our time there. Actually the bigger one was that we told our waitress that this was our first wedding anniversary, and that we got married a year ago at the Omni. When it was time for the bill, I figured there would be more of a personal touch to our ending. Like, " congrats again on your first wedding anniversary , we hope to see you again." Little to robotic and no personal touch. We want to make it a tradition to go back every year.

everything was great,. Only few things I did not like but I will not ding y’all and give you a 1star. But this was a very important date for me(Feb14th) and they forgot to give my lady a long stemmed rose as advertised. They also ran out of the cheesecake so that was upsetting since we were looking forward to that. But other than that I would definitely go again.

It was a pre determined menu and the optionality was horrible. One type of soup or one type of salad. No surf and turf or the ribeye you would expect from a fine dining establishment. The service was great no complaints about the automatic 20% gratuity. I truly was disappointed by the lack of options for $70 dollars a person meal!

Overall worst service experience we’ve had at this location. Took the waiter over 15 minutes to come to our table after we were seated. Drink glasses sat empty the entire meal with no server in sight. Restaurant had very few people in at it at the time so I’m not sure where the disconnect was.

The view was incredible, the drinks fantastic but we were really disappointed when we got out “medium rare” steaks and they tasted burnt. The appetizers were really awesome, would definitely eat recommend the qual legs. Everyone was very attentive, never a dirty dish or an empty glass on the table. Will definitely go back someday and hopefully next time they’ll get the steaks just right 😉
