My husband had never been to this place. I had been several times for lunch with friends. Really like the farm to table foods and different menu items at different times. So for our date night I wanted to take my husband. We didn't make any reservations and got there around 6:30 pm so it was busy. But we got... More

All three of our lunch entrees were delicious, with attractive presentation atypical of most lunch establishments. Our waitress was professional yet informal. Clearly she liked working at this eatery. The menu was full of mouth watering options suggestive of a creative and energetic chef.

Fresh, innovative and delicious, The Republic does not disappoint. Had a kale and cabbage salad special one day--to die for-- and the falafel encrusted haddock another. Really good, hit the spot, great service, cool vibe.

This is a Farm to Table restaurant. They have a great menu selection. I would recommend trying the red velvet cake when it is available. Sooooo good!

We went for lunch, based on the recommendations of friends. All food was definitely cooked fresh, but didn't stand out, or felt special. We went on a cold, wet day and there was definitely a draught running through the length of the room, which didn't help.

Our final day in New England was spent in Manchester, New Hampshire. A quick review of restaurants made it clear that Republic Cafe, located at 1069 Elm Street downtown was my preferred choice for my last meal of vacation. We found Republic and had to circle the block looking for parking only to discover that there was a lot designated... More

Because of reviews read, my husband and I decided to try Republic. We arrived around 6:15 PM and were seated right away. We ordered drinks and were served grilled Syrian bread and oil. We then both ordered Steak and Frites, medium rare. My steak came out medium and my husband's was quite rare -- much rarer than medium rare. We... More
