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.

I decided to treat myself to the prix-fixe meal. It was beyond outstanding, and I imagine I will be doing it more often.

My mother's day ended at my favorite restaurant, we were able to include all my family (had to increase the reservation number) and they really enjoyed the food - the dinner was great, they loved the tasteful and juicy chicken and i enjoyed both my campanile and dessert, and of course the bread and butter. Always my go to restaurant for everything! We will back next week and will be doing take out too!

Katy and Curtis help with the selection of our food items and the food preparation was excellent. We enjoyed the oysters, tuna with avocado, white asparagus, the squab and the campanelle pasta. we finished with the apple tart. Service was attentive throughout the dinner and the Manhattan with Whistlepig was also very good.

Culinary performance was superb.Set under the patio tent, which felt like I was at a skid Row location… Very unappealing. The real kicker was the $75 corkage fee… outrageous.FYI, wine list is extensive but expensive For high end Vino.

Special price-fixe Thurs night dinner ...pretty darn good!! One dish tastier than the next. A very full meal. Optional wine-pairing. Worth the cost.

The food was wonderful, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We appreciate that they moved us from the front to rear of the restaurant. We really enjoyed the one-on-one with chef Walter Madzke. The recommended wine was excellent.

Hi! I am a forever favorite local of republique! Unfortunately I have to report that our experience on Tuesday night was unsatisfactory. The food was amazing as always, but we weren’t seated until 9pm for our 8:15 reservation and our food didn’t arrive at the table until almost 10:30pm. For the price of this cuisine that is unacceptable to me. The service was slow and nothing was offered to compensate for the tardiness on your end.

I hate to report a less than perfect dining experience with you all as you are one of my favorites. But I felt it would be helpful to hear from someone who frequents your establishment. I will still be back as I believe in giving all restaurants a grace period coming out of the year we’ve all just experienced- and I am thankful to be able to dine out again.

Hope this helps to improve my next dining experience with you all!

Portions were very small. Like VERY small, and I'm not a newbie from the midwest you needs a 32 oz. steak. But it was a modest meet portion with a garnish, at best of the side dish.

We've been before the pandemic, and it was special. This was sadly forgettable.

My dinner companion and I were engaged in conversation and 4 times different people came to ask us if dished could be removed, if we wanted more water (?) just serve don't ask) whether the food was ok. The interruptions were so frequent that we had to ask (twice!!) for them to please stop attending us.
The reason we had to ask twice is because they didn't communicate our feedback and someone else from the staff came to our table to check on us. It was absolutely ridiculous and laughable. Other than that - food was great.

We arrived super early, an hour, and they were unable to seat us any earlier.

The drinks and food were fabulous. Our server was amazing. The food is very expensive for what it is. Meaning, that the type of food shouldn’t be in a price range of what our bill was. But the food was fantastic.

our server Alicia treated us horribly from the start. the five of us had never been to this restaurant before but heard good things so i made this reservation to see my parents for the first time in 18 months and had a terrible experience. we were sat outside, not explained any of the dishes and were spoken to condescendingly by Alicia if any questions were asked. she seemed to be nicer to all the tables around us so I'm not sure why she would immediately dislike us, perhaps racism? we had the sole which I'm not sure why was $75 because it did not taste extraordinary but was de-boned tableside. the dishes were not memorable and the service left us feeling like we were a nuisance although we weren't being difficult or asking for anything. i waited so long to try this restaurant and chose a very special occasion. it was very disappointing.
