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.

An atmospheric, ethereal setting mixed with the casual vibe of a communal beer house in Europe. The service was thoughtful (they even brought more bread when they saw I had leftover butter that "shouldn't go to waste" <-- so true) and the food was just as purposefully executed.

Everything was wonderful. Great food and great service.
Had been on my list of restaurants to visit and I was not disappointed.
Can’t want to visit again. Already know things on the menu that I want to try though the 4 of us had quite a few items. Loved them all.

If you enjoy sharing wonderfully flavors, and sharing small bites with your dinner mates, you will enjoy what Republique has to offer. Terrificly trained servers, skillfully crafted food. It can be an expensive evening, but choose thoughtfully to what your budget can afford, and it will be an evening to remember.

One of the best meals we’ve EVER had. The trio of pork board is INCREDIBLE. The restaurant is quite large but the level of service makes you feel as if you are their only customers. A must in LA if seeking an amazing restaurant experience.

Being out-of-towners on a short but sweet vacation, my brother and I were researching on where to find some of the best places to eat in LA. Republique is one of the top destinations for eclectic French food, and did it ever deliver!

The entire meal was a wonderful surprise (which included a perfect amuse bouche, complimentary of the chefs) as well as the welcoming and warm hospitality of the servers and the staff. Republique would absolutely be my first recommendation to everyone I know back home to go to in LA when they do visit. Thank you for one of the best experiences and delicious meals I’ve ever had!

The Brillat-Savarin cheesecake is to die for - worth it just to taste this dish. Wine selection is incredible but $$$$$.

Wonderful Dining experience. Butter is to die for especially with pan drippings! Chicken was so moist cooked to absolute perfection. Our server Michael was fabulous and made great recommendations. Definitely will be back!

We have always had a special, absolutely delicious meal here, even at the bar. Service, impeccable. The wine list is always a dictionary but the staff is so helpful. Burrata, spot prawns (wish there were 6 instead of 4), campanelle pasta, short ribs, all outstanding.

Excellent dinner. Our server, Jacque, and all of the staff clearing the table and filling waters were warm, professional and attentive. The food was incredible (tuna tartare, crudo in thai coconut broth, potato and leek beignets, roasted cauliflower, burrata with heirloom and watermelon salad, spot prawns, spaghetti a la bottarga, deconstructed cheesecake with figs, and warm chocolate cake were fantastic. Our cocktails were exquisitely built (we got the “celery”, “grapefruit” and “Oaxacan old fashioned”). The space is beautiful. We sat upstairs overlooking the main dining space below. Sat at 6pm so the restaurant was still relatively quiet, especially upstairs. A very special experience.

I am sorry to say that I was disappointed. I wanted everything, or at least some things, anything, to be a wow. Instead everything was just okay, certainly not worthy of the price tag or rave reviews. We are glad that we went as a couple and not with friends for the first time. The only reason we may return is for the promise of the touted pastries and breakfast offering. We are still debating.

Amazing food! The bread and butter is among the best I've ever had. Overall a bit expensive for everyday meals, but totally worth it for special occasions. Noise level is high in the main space. Ask for the back or upstairs smaller room if you like it quieter.

Food and flavors were exceptional. Selection was adequate covered most taste preferences. A bit late getting seated there was a (15) minute wait beyond our reservation time. Not terrible but would suggest that the owner/chef have a small treat sample hand out offer while waiting if that wait extends beyond beyond 5 minutes of stared time. Service and hospitality was very good. Both friendly and informative and the "stop backs and check on's" were done correctly. Of note no owner/chef/or management stopped by to welcome, ask how we were doing, and wish we would return. It was not absolutely required or effected our good service just a note. Atmosphere and energy was great. From a value perspective it was ok. Apps both hot and cold were gennerally in the $15-$25 range, entries in the $40 -$60 range. No draft craft beer only bottles. Bread for the table was $8 dollars (Interesting). Wine by glass expensive only one selection of red for $15 most were in the $20-$40 range. Expect to pay $100 to $125 before taxes for your dinner. All in all with all said a great restuarant one I would recommend.

It's a pretty restaurant and very popular with well healed "pretty people". But it is WAY overpriced for what it is. The food is good, but not the best I've had. The service was excellent. It is VERY loud in there, hard to talk.

Stool seating at the bar was ideal for dining on your own. Lots of action and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Great wine and cocktails-lots of shaking from the bartenders.
