Nice atmosphere, pleasant and professional service, and good drinks.....spent the extra money for the Akaushi steak and was underwhelmed. Price for the evening did not match up to the overall experience.

Calamari overly breaded, salads were good, wife’s steak was good pork chop was overly fat and not very good, the risotto was some what dry and a bit flavorless. Desert was fine but typical. Our waitress was excellent.

Business dinner for 3 of us was very good in all aspects. Two of us had the small filet which were both very good. One in our party had the bone-in ribeye which he reported as excellent. The mashed potatoes were a little thick for my liking and the brussels sprouts were not flavored to my taste but the wine was excellent as well as the bread. Overall, dining at the Republic was a win!

This must have been an off night. Service was very slow. One dining companion ordered the center cut sirloin and although it was cooked to the right temperature (rate-plus) it was very dry. I ordered the prime flat iron steak and it was very hard to cut and chew because of stringy stuff running all through it. The sauces and potatoes served with it were wonderful so it was really disappointing not to enjoy the meat. On another note/ the calamari was excellent as was the salmon. The Republic is our favorite BCS restaurant and we will return. It was just disappointing since this was our first time to dine out since the pandemic began.

I will definitely admit that the experience was far better than the previous time that we went. The service was excellent and the food was above expectations. The only thing that I found a little confusing is we were there to celebrate my wife’s birthday and while the staff wished her a happy birthday, that was the extent of it. I guess we are accustomed to some acknowledgement or offering her a desert at no charge.

From the Hostess to the Waiter. They were very professional and Knowledgeable, and went way beyond. The food was wonderful, from the wine to the desert. We had a Birthday Lady and the greeting to desert was great. I commend all and you earned your stars. Thanks for making a special night wonderful.

Our waiter was outstanding. The restaurant is wonderful. The cocktails were delicious. However, one of our steaks was undercooked; and, we had ordered it medium rare so it was noticeable. Also, the key lime pie had no lime flavor to it-only lime zest on top of cheesecake. And normally we would order lamb if offered, but the rack of lamb is from New Zealand(frozen). Texas is the largest sheep producing state in America making Farm to Table lamb a much more attractive offering than lamb shipped in from halfway around the world.
Overall, we had a very good to excellent experience and enjoyed our meal. We’ll be back.

We dined at The Republic in celebration of our daughters' birthdays along with our wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect! The food, the wait staff, the experience - it was awesome! Many times my husband has to send his steak back at other restaurants but not here, not this night. It was perfect!

I was dismayed by the lack of social distancing. When we first sat down there was one other table several feet away. By the time we were served our main courses, though, the room was full and there were two tables within a couple of feet of our booth. Our server was also very annoying--every sentence included the phrase "you two" as "here is your food, you two," "do you two need anything else?", and "can I bring the check for you two?"

We love The Republic but will take a break before returning.

I was very disappointed with the bar red wine by the glass. However, our table waiter changed it for another, much better, dryer wine without being asked. Overall a good experience. We will return.
