Highlights of our dinner were the Kefta, Endive Salad and the 3 cold antipasti:Hummus Republic Style, Spicy Coconut Butternut, & the Red Quinoa, Beet & Moroccan Spices. Our server Christine R was the best! She knows the menu very well & obviously enjoys her work.

My wife and I have been regular customers since Republic opened and have recommend it to all of our friends. Ed and Claudia were are the forefront of "farm to table" in Manchester and adapt the daily specials to what is seasonally available from local purveyors. You can't go wrong with any of the daily fish specials. If you've never... More

Had a nice lunch at the bar. We were waited on my the bartender Eric, who is always friendly and knowledgeable. We had an Antipasti plate for an appetizer and I had the Cod special for my meal. Both were well prepared and reasonably priced. For dessert we had the most fabulous olive oil and marmalade cake with fresh dark... More

Interesting menu. Nice flavors and options. Wonderful service. Also numerous gluten free items! Would definitely recommend. Only challenge was strong smoke/old oil smell wafting through restaurant from kitchen.

We do business frequently in Manchester and at 2 PM we are always looking for lunch. TA reviews were awesome so in we went. We love farm to table and place really rocks it. Beautiful bar, great food and friendly service. What else is there?? Summer tomatoes in NH in January? They take quality seriously.

This was quite a surprise. Actually, downtown Manchester was quite a surprise, and Republic seemed to epitomize the great foodie scene which has emerged. Even as we tried to find on-street parking, we passed umpteen other restaurants which looked good. I'm so very glad we stayed with our first choice. The first "funny" thing was their Happy Hour sign by... More
