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 subpar compared to the Republique of the past. We won’t recommend getting the steak or short rib anymore. Stick to the bread, Normandy butter and sea salt.

Came on a Saturday night. Packed house but distanced appropriately. The staff was friendly, masked, gloved, and face shielded. The waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Got oysters and bread and butter for appetizers. Both were excellent. Had the pasta with brown butter and sage filling, that was delightful. The cocktails were top notch. I got the old fashion, gin and tonic, the celery, and they were great. Main course was the chicken tagine, which was above average, but tasted one dimensional, not life altering as our waiter suggested it was. I did eat it cold the next day and it may have been better. Wish I would have gotten the duck instead. The dessert was a “tipsy cake” but more like a very soft bread, and that was ok. Given the reviews and popularity of this restaurant, I was expecting more, but still a solid choice. Would come back if just for the bread and cocktails. The service was great initially, but then it took about 45 minutes for our waiter to notice that we are ready for dessert and the check after.

Had to wait over 40 minutes for our table, even though we had a reservation. Unreasonable when the option to wait is to just stand outside on the sidewalk. We were also not offered anything to drink or a menu while we waited

This was our first big dining experience since the pandemic. It’s been a long time since having such a wonderful dining experience. Republique built a wonderful outdoor patio. The food was amazing, incredible flavors and the warm bread is the best! The staff was attentive and well protected. The only downside is the price...it’s an expensive restaurant. But if you know that going in, the food keeps me coming back.

Fantastic food. The outdoor patio is large with more than enough space between tables and is well lit. The service was outstanding and you could tell that the staff was happy to be there and have customers. Perfect for our date night, I would highly recommend the Monday prefix offering.

Food was amazing!!! We almost ended up canceling our reservation because we did not want to go to this place, but that would have been a huge mistake. The food tastes very good and flavorful. Their desserts were so great that we came back the next day for brunch and got some pastries. Would definitely recommend.

The outdoor seating was so hot I was barely able to eat my meal. Fans would be a huge help.

Also, the seats alongside the wall are very hot from the wall being scorched in the sun all day.
Food was good, but for 100 bucks a head, you can probably do better in some other spots around town.

Outdoor seating is available now.
Today was very unfortunate weatherwise.
It was over 100 degrees and super humid.
(I was expecting to see some fans or misters or something. But none of them was in the patio. )
I came to this restaurant for several times for lunch with friends and we all truly enjoyed then food along with the ambience everytime we came.
But the dinner menu was a little bit below than my expectation.
(3 of us ordered 1 appetizer, 1 bread/butter, 2 pastas, 1 steak and 2 desserts)
Loved the appetizer and bread/butter.
I personally think Republique has the best baguette and butter in town.
Fresh salad was great as well.
But main dishes were unexpectedly bland and blah.
The $65 steak was not even good. (Sorry, Republique.)
I recommend this restaurant for lunch/weekend brunch more.
The staffs are super friendly and nice.

The food and service were outstanding. It was everything my friends told me it would be. There was a little too much gangsta rap on the spotify playlist for my liking but it didn't last the whole night. As a black woman I don't particularly like to hear music denigrating women and laced with the "N" word. So maybe someone should monitor that. It didn't ruin our night or anything. Food was amazing. Would definitely go back again.

First time visit to Republique. Unfortunate that it had to be during a pandemic but don’t get many Friday nights off as I also work in the restaurant industry. We checked in for our reservation and the hostess offered us cocktails while we waited for our table to be ready, we thought that was a very nice touch. We sat on the outside on the sidewalk, was hoping for the patio seating but it was a fully booked night so understandable. Ordered a bottle of wine. Started with some shareables; oysters, tuna tartare, baguette and butter (which I think are the best I’ve had since the last visit to France). We also shared the raviolo and chicken tagine. I was under the impression shaved truffles were part of the dish but the food runner clumsily tried to upsell us on the shavings, we passed. Also when they had dropped the tagine they joked that the cous-cous were tortillas. Random.
I wanted to love our experience at Republique but maybe it was the atmosphere or bums passing by smoking frequently or even sitting at unbiased tables, or just underwhelmed with the service and food for the price we paid. Perhaps we will visit for brunch and try again.

Republique sets the standard for me when it comes to an amazing dining experience. The service from every single worker is on point. There was a mix up with my reservation on this particular night. I received a call from HR and their manager whom were able to sort the situation out. When I arrived to Republique from start to finish the food and service was beyond. My date was experiencing Republique for the first time and was blown away. I absolutely love coming here.

I was very excited to go. However, I found the food to be really mediocre and overpriced. The service was notably poor, even with capacity reduced due to COVID. Maybe brunch is better?

The food and staff are so amazing that even take away the beautiful restaurant and it was still an incredible experience. Seemed they took every safety precaution possible. Pan drippings are always a must. The burrata salad, incredible. Drinks, wine, desserts. All divine. Thank you to the Republique team for making a "regular" quarantine Friday night extra special.
