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.

We were seated on the patio which was just a converted parking lot. I chose this place because it’s so beautiful inside and then we were seated in a literal parking lot so that took a lot away from the experience. On top of that the service was not that great for such a high price point. Our waitress must have been in a bad mood. We weren’t checked on that often and when we were it wasn’t particularly pleasant. I think I would hold off on recommending this place to people in the future. The food was good so that made it not completely terrible.

Amazing place. We where seated 30min late then waited 1:20 for all of our food to come out at the same time. It was “sharing size” but only the chicken was. The rest was smaller almost not enough for one person, but really really good.

Excellent food. Service was slow to start with a few gliches with not bringing flatware and individual plates when the food was first served, but was quickly remedied.

Incredible, from the service to the ambiance to the food and the cocktails (sadly didn’t have a chance to do wine, uncharacteristically).

Dinner was lovely. Service was pretty great, but all the food came out so quickly the table was completely covered. Oysters, salad, main course basically arrived all at once. Everything tasted great!

I will give them a break because of Covid. The menu was limited. $75 dollar corkage unless you buy a bottle of wine from them is a over the top. Service was good. Food is always delicious.

One of the best meal and dining experiences we have ever had in Los Angeles or otherwise. The staff (server Curtis and GM David) were remarkable in every way, from food suggestions to wine pairings to hospitality and care in making my wife and I (on our wedding anniversary) feel as special as any guest who could have walked through the doors of Republique. We cannot wait to go back. Everything was remarkable.

Food was very good. The service was a bit erratic. Although the food came out fast they cleared the plates even faster. Needed to slow the pace a bit.

Chairs were not terribly comfortable, lovely dishes but silverware was not great. For the quality of the food and the price of the meal, the decor needs a refresh.

It was the first time I visited this place. We seated outside on the restaurant’s parking, it doesn’t look fancy thou. But the food is great. It may look simple, but the quality and the way how it’s been cooked are fantastic

Incredible tasting menu - starting with the caviar course and ending with the dessert. The pairings were wonderful, although I preferred the traditional pairing the modern one was good too. The service was the only issue, with no communication at all it seems.

I've been to Republique a few times for dinner. The first time I went, I was disappointed. Food was good but not great - felt like it should cost half as much. Overall nothing stood up to what I had expected. I didn't go back for years, but when I did, it was a pre-fixed menu during the COVID lockdown, and it was amazing. The servers were kind and fun and the food was great. Because of that experience, I took my parents this past weekend while they were visiting. Unfortunately, it mirrored my first experience. The food was good, one dish in particular, but it wasn't incredible. None of the dishes are things I will be thinking about again. The service was fine but not welcoming. The prices were, as usual, very high, which is no problem if the food is worth it, but this time very much felt not worth it. I don't envision myself going back to Republique for dinner again.

Great service. Little things like consistent refilling of water that wasn’t incessant go a long way. Not to mention great food. Enjoyed the brussel sprouts and short rib most. The dates in Brussels sprouts makes it outstanding.
