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 crowd has changed with the patio dining, but not the food or service. We had an extraordinarily fabulous dinner on the patio.

The experience was excellent. Our server was Courtney I believe and was extremely informative about the meal throughout the night. His explanations of the food made the meal taste the way he explained and set the mood for the next plate that would arrive promptly at the table. The whole night was filled with a beautiful ambiance and awesome service that I will definitely be coming back for another Monday night dinner. My and my girlfriend were extremely impressed with all of the curated plates. The Santa Barbara uni was so fresh that it was caught just that day in the wee hours at 5 am and brought to the restaurant to be served. I have nothing but raving reviews for this place and am now hooked! Thank you République and most of all thank you Zelma.

We did the Monday night Prix Fixe menu for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was absolutely amazing. Such a great way to try a variety of courses! The service was fantastic and everything we ate was delicious. Their baked goods (bread and pastries) were some of the best I’ve ever had. Definitely will be going back!

Atmosphere was truly sad. Arrived on time and was seated at one of the worst tables possible.... up against a wall in a corner in the back of the restaurant. The restaurant was only half capacity. Asked for another table and this seemed like was greeted with disdain. Interesting meal for 2... $400

I've lived next to Republique for 2 years and never went. Got a work perk for a dinner on the company amd celebrated here. Even with the adjustments made for Covid, the dinner was excellent. Will likely go back on my own dime.

The servers and our sommelier helped make a birthday dinner special. We all had a fabulous time and felt appreciated. We came last year for our anniversary and we just knew that we had to come back and bring family along with us. The food and drinks were excellent just like the last time. We had a reservation and the host communicated to us that they weren’t quite ready for us but her professionalism made it not a big deal. So just know that they are doing there best to assist everybody and they truly want to ensure you have the best experience. Again it was lovely, oh and apparently there is an additional LA health tax going on right now so don’t be surprised about that.
We ordered pasta, steak (med rare cooked to perfection), chicken, and dessert and all were fabulous. Order the bread with the pan drippings and butter, yum.

The server talked too much and said he wouldn’t let us order too much by we ended up taking an entire entree home to go. He also asked if we wanted truffle shavings on our pasta as he was serving it. Couldn’t he have asked when we were ordering and let us know what the up charge would be? It was an awkward moment.

Monday night tasting menu is a solid value at $75 pp. The cocktails on the fall menu were great additions to the menu. Outside seating is safe, distanced, and wait staff are wearing masks/shields. The pace of the menu was a little faster than expected, but I feel this could have been an impact from the time constraints per table with COVID. I would recommend this for a fancy date night or any celebration.

We had our anniversary dinner at Republique - and we were worried it would be a bit of a damp squib. This was not the case. Our server made great recommendations and made us feel very welcomed. The food was delicious and there was a lovely buzzy atmosphere. It was a terrific night. Almost made you forget the pandemic.

Thrilled to return to Republique. The outdoor setting is wonderful, on the outside of the restaurant, partially covered, more festive and comfortable than outdoor dining on the sidewalk.
The food is locally sourced, creative and delectable. Absolutely loved the long green beans cacio e pepe, as well as the chicken tagine. Highly recommend!!

The prix fixe was not what I would have ordered but that is the fun of it. The sauces although wonderful were a little heavy for me but that's personal preference and not a criticism of the food.

Food was incredible, one of the best meals I’ve had in a while. They have an outdoor seating area along the street and a more private seating patio area. We were seated along the street, which was more noisy but that’s the reality of dining during a pandemic. It was still romantic and the ambience was as good as it could be, all things considered. I was glad they had the nice heaters to keep us warm once the sun went down. The music was fun and kept the mood light. Drinks were amazing and our server was very nice. Such a cute place, we had an amazing experience and overall, would definitely recommend to go for a special evening or date night!

Food was as expected - solid. Extremely disappointed with the seating arrangements. Understandably with the pandemic things can be tough but we were tucked into a corner away from the restaurant which honestly ruined the dining experience. Given this, the value wasn't worth it.

Went for spouse's dinner, to the "dining outdoors in COVID" version. Food very good, though not as "revelatory" as it's been in the past; though I understand that folks are cooking under less than optimum conditions. Service was good, though again not up to the prior standard, and again, understandable under the circumstances.

Wonderful dinner. Only set back is the building is so beautiful but in covid time, you don’t get to experience the inside. However that is beyond their control.

Considering the high prices for each dish, we did not realize this was a “family style” restaurant. The prices were what you’d expect for an entree and the portions were quite small since they were intended to be shared. We had 4 people at our table so we ordered 6 dishes. It wasn’t enough food, but we couldn’t stomach ordering another $40 dish just so we could get a little bit more food. We ended up eating more food when we got home. The food itself was also completely underwhelming. Again, considering the prices (and the hype) we were expecting the food to be a lot better. Overall it was a disappointment and not worth the cost. Will not be dining there again.

Amazing food and amazing service. We outside and it was a cold day but their heaters did a great job keeping us warm.
Each meal is small in size but after all the courses are done we felt full and definitely satiated.
I would recommend this place to anyone, and especially the pasta dish with white truffle sprinkled on top is a must.
