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.

My wife and I went for the the first time for Valentines Day. The food was delicious and service was excellent. It was a la carte so I expected it to be pricey. We will definitely be going back.

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 😉

Great menu for meat and fish lovers. We enjoyed the mixed appetizer and excellent steaks. The main waiter was well up to speed on the content of the menu. Good selection of wines and beer. Drinks and appetizers was served in a timely manner. We had to wait a while for the main course, this was commented by several of my guests. I have been to the Republic of Texas Bar & Grill several times before, this was the first time I experienced to wait quite some time for the main course. All in all - a good meal and I will be back!

The venison and my wife’s scallops were the only things that we had that actually had flavor. We spent 100$ on a lobster tail alone and that had zero flavor. The filet mignon also did not have flavor. My wife and I are also young and felt we were being judged by our waitress, she gave the shade and attitude as if we weren’t gonna be able to afford dinner over we got a total of a lobster tail steak venison and 2 scallops which was 24$ for that and all together it came out to 240 something dollars was definitely not worth it I would not eat here

I was so disappointed and this place kind of ruined my night out for New Years Eve. The food was the worse...both steaks were over cooked and cold. Almost seemed like they served us left-overs. We spent over $300 for a steak dinner for two but would have had a better meal at Denny's. If I come here again would only be for happy hour just to enjoy the ambience but that is all and would later go to dinner somewhere else. Our service was also not up to par for the price...we only saw our waitress twice during our whole dinner. I wouldn't recommend this place but for drinks. I would expect so much more for $300!

 (Austin)·Dined on December 29, 2017

Having a reservation for four on a Friday evening to celebrate a birthday, we were seated quickly. Unfortunately, we were given no drink menus, and it took some time for our waitperson to come to introduce theirself. While this may seem like a minor mistake, when a restaurant is billing itself as fine dining, something like this makes a difference. It also became a trend.

The server did eventually bring the wine list and cocktail menu, but again, a longer break followed that before drink orders were taken. The server was fairly knowledgeable about the food, including a few specials. Once the food and drinks actually began arriving, it was of high quality, save for one side dish (au gratin potatoes) being a bit undercooked. The steaks were particularly good, and the seafood was well-prepared. However, the bus person was strangely and persistently overzealous about removing plates before we were finished with them. They seemed young, so perhaps it was just inexperience (but something a place like this should be working to avoid).

The final strange touch was that, after paying the check, our server never returned to finish filling the wine glasses of the two in our party sharing a bottle, despite their being a fairly large portion of it left. I had to roam the restaurant to find the server, and, not being able to locate them, I finally asked another for assistance. Before even telling that other server what the issue was, they asked if I needed a bottle of wine recorked to take away with us. That they knew to predict this tells me that this is a recurring problem. At an establishment like this, it is just sad. We would have sat and finished the bottle, but, given the relative disinterest we were being treated with, we decided to cut the losses on service and move on for drinks elsewhere.

This may seem like nit-picking, and for most other restaurants in CC, I would agree, but I really can’t justify spending 4-5 star prices for 3-or-less star service.

Second visit, both times my steak was way over-cooked. This time I didn't send it back because I was so hungry. We sat for 15 min's at our table before we were even acknowledged. I spent $250.00 on a meal that wasn't worth $50.

The food was good, esp the steak; the fish was undercooked with a mushy center (salmon). Our servers were very polite and attentive. When we said we had limited time, they did their best to get our meal out promptly (maybe why the fish was undercooked?) The view was wonderful.
