Great ambience. Really good service for a large table of coworkers...amiable about splitting checks. Food was spectacular. I did not indulge in dessert, but several folks at my table ordered amazing items. The deconstructed tuna roll totally hit the spot.

I can certainly rave about the steaks, but the Fries are something to behold too. In fact, I've never had a bad meal at The Republic. Truly a local treasure!

These guys really know their steaks. They were visually very appealing and full of smells and flavors. The servers are very attentive and knowledgeable of their menu. The background noise was pretty low, so consider this place if you're looking for a data night or other quieter dinner idea.

We have been to the republic many times, and loved it every time. Amazing bar, great steaks, great sides, always feel just wonderful there. (Plan on 2 1/2 hours or more and expensive, but well worth it).

There is no question that the Republic offers the best steaks in town. Unfortunately, it stopped evolving and slowly settled into the " good old steakhouse" with the standard menu items that you find all over the US (scallops, steak, cheesecake...). Thus, when I had the scallops today, my mind was solidly set on 4/5 points. Although the dish had... More

Excellent service and delicious food! Perfectly cooked steaks and accompaniments followed by scrumptious desserts (we had peanut butter chocolate mousse with salted caramel popcorn - yum!)

We use to be regulars to the Republic. It was our special occasion place. But their quality has recently suffered. My 7 oz filet came on a plate much too large for most things, let alone just a small steak. It was garnished with a very small piece of lettuce in the left corner. The good steak was cheapened by...
