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.

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.

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.

The food is fine, but we're having a $130 course meal, and they gave us our seats next to the kitchen, so the servers come and go. It was hard to enjoy food and talk comfortably with the sound of a bowl. One dish was served after 30 minutes. If you have patience, you can enjoy the course dinner. But I don't want to recommend it to anyone else. And the server

It was a huge disappointment!!!
Our pasta dishes came out Luke warm, we had to send it back.
We waited 30 mins for our entree and our steak was overcooked and luke warm again.
We had no idea about our Chicken entree, it didn’t come.
We cancelled our entree and left.

Sadly for the kitchen staff, the tasty food and effort was overshadowed by the poorly coordinated service. Off to a great start, our service disappeared mid meal. The first round of wine and cocktail glasses sat empty for nearly 30 minutes until we were forced to pass our request for another round to a food runner as our entrees were hitting the table. Along with our plates from the appetizers not being changed before entrees arrived.

Could have been better. Open to trying again.

Reservations highly recommended for this restaurant, especially due to limited available seating. Saw a few walk-ups get turned away. We sat outside on the patio, which was nicely created. My friend and I splurged on a few dishes and a bottle of wine. All-in-all a fantastic evening - great food, attentive service and the ambience was nice. It reminded us that summer is coming and dining al fresco is fun.

Overall: Great food, great service and great experience (except for the wait times)

The Good: The menu and occasion was set for their "prix-fixe" or fixed menu and it was an enthralling menu and tasting experience. Every piece of every dish appeared and tasted like it had been carefully curated, selected and placed. The plates were also served chilled/warmed to accommodate the dish. New silverware was provided after each dish as well. The level of service and professionalism was also exceptional.

The Bad: We had to wait 35+ minutes beyond our reservation to be seated. Worth noting this was on a weekday, not weekend. Even though no less than 3 people apologized, it greatly detracted from the overall experience. No other form of complimentary courtesy was offered or extended.

All of the food here was good, but unimpressive and overpriced. Everything was a bit bland/one-note and for the amount I spent I expected something more memorable.
