République, located in mid-city, is owned by Chef Walter Manzke and Chef Margarita Manzke. Centered in the heart of Los Angeles, the classic building in which it resides was originally erected in 1929 by Charlie Chaplin, and later transformed into the iconic La Brea Bakery and Campanile Restaurant. République builds on this storied past, offering a gastronomic environment imbued with history and grandeur. The space features a casual bar and bistro in the front with a more formal dining area located in the rear, serving a French-inspired menu created daily by our Chefs.

Amazing food. Every dish was a taste treat. Remarkable flavors. I was a little surprised at the mediocre quality of the service. Our guests had to ask multiple times for their glasses of wine to be delivered. We waited quite a while for our server to come take our order. We had to gather up dirty dishes and empty water bottles on our table and flag passing staff to remove them. Wait wait wait for the check to be picked up. Lengthy wait with a crowd at the valet station. But the food! Truly amazing.

The cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and bread were awesome. We got the pan drippings and wished we had done the butter instead. The complimentary soup was delicious!! We also enjoyed the eggs on toast.

Basically, we were happy with the food up until the entrees. Two had the duck and both said the breast was good but the leg was not. One has the vegetable tajine and thought it was a bit too sweet for their liking. I had the salmon. It was cooked well and was tasty but the stall are beans weren’t my thing. There was very little squash in this dish also. More would have been nice.

We also had the almond butter cake. It was good. Not too sweet. If you’re a fan of the butter cake at Mastro’s, this is definitely different.

Overall, I’d go back but avoid entrees. I really want to try their brunch and pastries. Their bread maker should be well paid!!

Celebrating my wife’s birthday, we had a fabulous meal. Food was amazing and service excellent given the staffing issues all businesses are having. While it did take a while to get cocktails, most everything else went off without a hitch. The only exception was one entree arrived before our risotto course. The server took it back to the kitchen, the risotto showed up momentarily and new entrees were prepared and arrived on time. great recovery! Their wine list is impressive and the som provided us with excellent guidance. It is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended: blue fin tuna tartar (a bit smokey), white alba truffle risotto (it is fall after all) and liberty farms duck w black peppercorn sauce. Big yum!

Appetizers and bread were great, but all the main entrees were disappointing, except the duck confit. The kanpachi crudo, tomatoes and burrata, tuna tartare were all delicious. We also had the sweet corn agnolotti which was yummy but the lobster pasta only had lobster stock and very little lobster meat and for $42 it should have been more substantial. The mains including short ribs, rouget and chicken were all mediocre at best. My son had the NY steak and said it was the worst steak he has ever eaten. The duck was the only dish that was more than passable. The service for such a high end place was utterly awful. My wife had to ask for ice for her drink 4 times over a span of 25 minutes before it finally arrived. Dirty plates sat on our table forever and when the next course came out, they would have to go back with our food and then clear the table after the fact. Then they would only bring out some of the silverware and plates and we would have to ask for additional ones for those who were missing theirs. The waiter forgot to order the chicken with the rest of the entrees and the rest of the 5 people at the table ate their dinners while we waited for the chicken to arrive about 15 minutes later. No manager apology or anything! Not even a complimentary dessert was offered...nothing! And they charged us for the chicken ($42!) which by the time it arrived, we could only eat half. We were there to celebrate my father's 88th birthday and the dinner was simply a giant let down. I am reluctantly giving 3 stars for the overall and food scores only due to the fact the appetizers were so good. It is a shame as we have enjoyed coming to Republique for a long time but I am not sure we will be going back any time soon.

The food was spectacular, as always. The wine great but the timing of the service sometimes was off. One of my friends had to wait a long time for his second glass of wine and my brother's after dinner drink took forever. Bad timing on the delivery of wine can ruin the meal experience and in a place as high end as Republique, it should be impeccable and perfect.
Also, I was freezing during the entire evening, which made for a less than perfect experience. We were in a table indoors, so there's really no excuse for this.

We had dinner around 6 on a Friday, in the outdoor patio. Valet parking was not super expensive, nice guys. We were seated immediately, and given a nice corner table inside the outdoor, parking lot structure. Nice lightning, music wasn’t very loud, tables are separated enough to have a conversation and not be disturbed. Republique has an amazing menu! Just a heads up, this is a high quality cuisine menu, and the prices are reflected. They suggest you order 4 separate courses that shape your dining experience. We had a fantastic crudo to start. Then moved to a cauliflower and broccoli dish that was fantastic, then a lobster pasta! These courses are all small plates meant for 2. The last course was a toasted half chicken with vegetables and was truly great! If you are looking for a quiet, even romantic dinner to celebrate, or even just to enjoy truly amazing food, please make a reservation soon!

The waitstaff were super helpful and efficient. We tried both of the wine pairings with our food. The wines they selected worked perfectly with each course. The food was super delicious and appealing to the eye. Our favorites were the uni panna cotta and the sunchoke agnolotti. We would absolutely order those two items again if they became a regular menu item at Republique.

République is a beautiful setting. The front rooms communal tables and high tops are an amazing scene for a date or festive evening out. The staff is exceptionally helpful and well trained and kind. The food is good but maybe not worth the price tags (skip the lobster pasta, go for the veggies and bread). However, one can make a good argument to go just for the ambiance. I will definitely be going back for a glass of wine and their French breads with « pan drippings »

Food and service was good, we like it and expect it for the price level. But outdoor seating was the only availability to reserve online. We expected to be seated inside to get a better experience, since there was a lot of empty seats inside. Therefore we voted Fair for the ambiance.
