The standard menu includes many good choices, but I opted for the special - tilefish with mashed sweet potatoes, covered in fried calamari. Each element of this dish was cooked to perfection. You wouldn't normally associate a farm-to-table eatery with fish, but Republic Cafe features fresh fish everyday. The arancini appetizer was excellent as was the olive oil-based cake I... More

This was one of the few restaurants open on New Years Day is the biggest reason we went. We love farm to table so that's what made our decision. The mussels were a fantastic starter and our friend ordered a second round! My sweetie's fish entre was perfect and my stuffed squash delicious. Our service was extraordinary.

Pluses: nice decor, greeted and sat quickly, refill of bread offered, small sides delicious. Minuses: slow service, no water refill, special burger cooked well though ordered medium-rare, waiter asked and told about burger and humus appetizer taken off tab (not the burger?), overloaded dishwasher dropped mixing bowl next to table without comment Net: menu demonstrates ambition but delivery and odd...

Do not miss the 3-appetizer special. Very good bistro food, worthy of NYC or Seattle. Good ambiance and well planned menu. Very highly recommended.

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.
