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.

Did not like being seated at the communal table, didn’t have any input about that. The food was okay but really the noise inside made it hard to carry a conversation.

Republique made our anniversary dinner spectacular! The food was impeccable, service was attentive and professional and friendly, and the vibe in the dining room was great. Hadn’t visited in a year or so, but am definitely plotting my next visit already.

In our several trips to LA, Republique was by far the best dining experience we had. Marvelous food, IMPECCABLE service, charming atmosphere—-all made for an outstanding evening. Special mention to our server Katy, who was an absolute delight. Her thoughtful recommendations and sparkling, always professional attention were truly key for this delightful gastronomic adventure. Every dish we ordered from the beef tartare to the brown butter almond cake ware flawless. We will most definitely return there upon our next trip to LA.

The service is really outstanding and the food was very good!
We were shocked about the wine prices though and ended up having a huge bill just for a few glasses of wine. First we ordered half glasses of wine than full glasses, but there was not much difference in the pour !!
We felt really upset by the end of the evening and wouldn’t recommend to our friends

We enjoyed the delicious seasonal menu, especially the Santa Barbara spot prawns! Even though the restaurant was filled to capacity, we never felt ignored and our drinks were always refilled. Excellent food and service!

We love this restaurant however I had to return my duck as it wasn’t hot enough . There was not much flavor to the duck . The Broclie dish was too big and fair as to taste

We were sat at the communal table and when asked to be moved the host was very rude and moved us to an awful area. We then moved back to communal. I really think when one has a reservation they should get a proper table and communal should be for walk-ins. Also our main took forever and the wine list is absurdly expensive.

It is perhaps the only restaurant in LA that I will put aside my fear of community tables to attend–it is that good! The "eggs on toast" is sublime and should be ordered with every meal and the red salad's aesthetic is only surpassed by its taste. I have dined here a number of times and I can't honestly think of anything that I have tried that did not leave me impressed. It is now an LA staple for good reason.

Great food with the Dover Sole and hamachi... The DOVER SOLE WAS AWESOME!
we were in the nice back room but sitting in a corner...

Just need to bring to attention that the bus staff was slamming down water bottles right behind my date's ear was just poor training. In addition, the bus staff were hurried (poured water on the table with each refill of water), a bit gruff, and sweaty. There is an obvious need for retraining. Such a nice restaurant, but very amateurish service staff.

Food was very good , service was excellent. It was noisy but that's ok for the type of place it is. Very well run, i think one of the best overall restaurants in LA. I usually sit at the bar as the tables are a little close to each other. Should be a destination place for anyone visiting los angels.

Been to Republique a few times already and this time was for a double bday celebration. Great dining experience as usual. Good recommendation on the wine and food. Tried the seasonal scallop, which was absolutely delicious. Oysters, steak, Brussels sprouts were good just as always.
