    This is a gem of a restaurant! I have been to many different places surrounding The Bushnell. Republic at Lindon blew the others away. The service was outstanding, the food and drinks were delicious. There was no wait and it was easy to book a reservation on OpenTable. Our drinks arrived quickly and our waitress was AMAZING! She was always there when we needed her and didn't hurry us at all. It was one of our few nights out (we have 2 small children) and the atmosphere was perfect. There were only a few tables of people and it was a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. I have a very bad back and I swear those chairs were magical. I was very comfortable for the 2 hours we sat at our table. We had the strawberry spritz, Manhattan and dirty martini for drinks. All of them were tasty and with enough alcohol and enough flavor. For food, we had the nachos, oysters, bolognese and the Republic burger. The nachos were some of the best I've ever had. I don't usually like anything spicy especially jalapenos. However, the jalapenos had the seeds removed and they were pickled. They were a sweet, sour and a tad spicy. The blend was delicious. I found myself eating all of them. The carrots were also pickled and added such a new depth of flavor for nachos. Seriously they were delicious. The oysters were good. They add balsamic to the side to pour on, which was nice and which I hadn't seen before. I'm used to getting hot sauce, horseradish and ketchup so it was a pleasant change. The burger was outstanding. You could tell the meat was great quality and it was on a brioche bun. The fries were thin and crispy. The burger was juicy and absolutely delicious! My husband had the bolognese. He's 100% Italian so he can be hard to please with a pasta dish, but again, it was outstanding. I have a food allergy that is uncommon but pops up with many processed foods. I didn't get a single hive so I know the food was great quality. Thanks Republic! We will be back soon!

    Loved the food and cocktails which were excellent. We were unfortunately seated next to a table with 7 young girls who were very loud. Would’ve been nice without that and that’s not the restaurant’s fault. Chairs in the function room where we were seated lacked padding so they were a tad uncomfortable. Overall the service was outstanding and food was very good.

    Amazing. We loved everything about it. Our server was outstanding and everyone was really nice and attentive. The manager/owner brought out the food and came back, the waitstaff all worked together and even the chef asked how everything was when we passed him. The food was amazing and the ambiance was great. We will definitely be going back.

    Went to Republic on Sunday for Brunch. Although it was very busy with many patrons going to the Bushnell matinee of Hamilton The service was excellent and the food was also great. The Eggs Benedict was the best around! Muffin just the right crust, the ham was cut thin( no big slab of unruly ham) and the eggs were just right, will return soon.

    Waitress and host were awesome! Have been there several times after shows at The Bushnell! We took my daughter and some friends to celebrate her receiving her masters degree. Four of us had the Crab cake Benedict! Eggs were close to hard boiled, crab cakes pretty dark and crispy! We place our order and waited over 45 minutes. Waitress was great and manager took 10% off bill. Just disappointed in the brunch, because every other meal we have had there was great!

    had a nice Mother's Day late lunch at The Republic. The greeter and wait staff were all super friendly! Nice variety of food choices from the fixed special selection menu. Only item was the salmon wasn't cooked thoroughly enough. All other items, especially the salads were awesome. Great ambiance and décor at The Republic too

    Hostess was very friendly and our server was sweet but inattentive, never asking about food. A Manager noticed that we had not eaten our entrees that had so much salt in the eggplant the entire pasta dish was uneatable. We told him And his response was to go tell the kitchen never offer to take the dishes or offer a different dish. Towards the end of the evening a bus boy came and place a bussing tray on the the end of our table and started clearing the table all around us that had no customers and yelling across to other staff eventually looking at us and asking if we were done, so he could take our plates. I was very disappointed since it have eaten here on other occasions an thought it exceptional. It will be quite a while before I will think about returning.

    Enjoyed dinner on the converted indoor patio space by the fire. We started with cocktails-we both had a La Medicina and it was dangerously good. The appetizer list was so extensive, we ended up having a tapas style dinner instead of ordering entrees. The falafel paired with creme fraiche was my favorite. We can't wait to go back!

    The restaurant and bar were PACKED (Friday night + a play at the Bushnell) and it ran like a well oiled machine. I was so impressed. I was seated downstairs near the kitchen and could hear their flow & communication as well as being able to see the bar. All of the servers and other staff were working their butts off. They are so cognizant of people who are in a time crunch due to attending the play, they even have a list of their most time conscious meals so people can be sure to eat and make it to the theater in time. Highly recommend making a reservation though!! Food was delicious and service was great.

    Vibe and decor are great. Drinks also above average, the food is across-the-board just OK. Good food concepts and construction of dishes, and a few of the dishes including the salt beats and lamb tagine were excellent, but the remainder of dishes all lacked flavor, salt, and seasoning.
