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.

Game-changing, delicious French food in an incredible space in Mid-Wilshire. Hop on the Republique train.

This was not my first time at republique. I actually had dinner there two nights in a row because I loved the Dover sole. However, on our second time ordering it, the fish was unfortunately extremely fishy and tasteless unlike the first time we tried it. It should be taken into consideration that the quality of the fish should remain consistent however this was not the case at all.

République was an amazing experience. As we walked in we were greeted by a friendly staff and we right away felt that we were going to have a great dinner. The food was absolutely delicious and all of our dishes came out in a timely manner and perfectly portioned. As for the service, loved it. Everyone was friendly and made sure that our experience was a memorable one. Next time we visit LA we will definitely be coming back for more. Thank you for the great experience.

The ample staff instantly made us feel comfortable. The service was impeccable. They changed our plates and silverware countless times. Each dish was a culinary adventure. It wasn’t my first time dining here, but was one of the most enjoyable.

As usual we enjoyed excellent food and service. The selection of seasonal dishes is varied and vegetarian friendly. The En CROUTE desert is incredible. The server was right on top of my allergies, and the sommelier suggested an excellent glass of wine to pair with our food.

The most divine dinner experience! From the warm greetings to the most accommodating service, the atmosphere was welcoming. Each course of our meal was delectable. We enjoyed the addicting potato and leek beignets, crusty bread with a heavy-handed dollop of Rodolphe le Meunier butter topped with flake salt, a special order of the freshest tuna, little pillows of corn agnolotti, and tender Wolfe Ranch quail. Looking forward to enjoying more of the menu on our next visit!

Unique cocktails, soft shell crabs, pasta with lobster-all delicious

Music is cranked up pretty high and tiles floors make for poor acoustics. Noise level was the only detractor

Simply superb! One of the best meals I have had in Los Angeles or anywhere in the world. Every bite was a revelation of flavors and textures and not one bite was anything but magical. The cocktail menu rocked, the wines delivered. And the service was perfect. Friendly, knowledgeable, I never felt rushed but welcomed into the house of Walter and Margarite Manzke. These two not only know how to cook but how to run a warm welcoming wonderful oasis of happiness here in Los Angeles.
