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.

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.

Fantastic, as always! Or, actually, every time I eat here, it's better than I recall, which is difficult to achieve because nothing inflates more than memories.

The food was amazing and the building is beautiful. The best part of the entire experience was the staff though, they were kind, attentive, and thoughtful. James in particular was so graceful and attentive as a host.

Thank you!

Food is always delicious, staff attentive, fun to watch the kitchen prep dishes if you're seated across from them. Even my 14 year old picky eater was impressed with each dish & devoured the Brussel sprouts carbonara.

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.

Honestly I can’t say even one good thing. Everything was very salty, and not very interesting menu overall. And it was my birthday dinner!

The waitress was rude and unpleasant- very passive aggressive and you can tell from her tone that she wasn’t very happy to help us. Rushed our order and just overall made us uncomfortable to be there.

The outdoor seating is in a disgusting, AWFUL parking lot (with no music even)! Horrible ambiance and honestly it felt unpleasant and uncomfortable to sit there

We ordered crudo which is supposed to be like sashimi, instead we got chewy and dry fish cut into cubes- awful!

We also had some salads for example which were SO salty!

Pasta was tasteless

We were excited for dessert but after the food and the service and the parking lot experience… we decided we couldn’t be there any longer

Horrible! We used to love coming here but it took a severe downturn after covid.

We were a table of 6 and we had a nice table on the outdoor patio area (converted parking lot) which turned out to be lovely. It was comfortable and safely distanced from other tables. The service was good (another person had to ask for salt & pepper for the table 3 times but...) and the food was very good! Everyone enjoyed their meals and drinks. Would recommend!

Got there for a bday celebration-yet the server wasn’t aware of the occasion, even though I specified it in the reservation and expected some kind of dessert suggestions that unfortunately we didn’t receive. The food was okay. Seemed like this would be more of a brunch spot rather than dinner!
