The staff are amazingly attentive and the bartenders are so friendly. What is great for cocktail lovers, they do bespoke as well which is absolutely fantastic.

Visited Republic with a friend and met the friendliest bartender Ryan. He was very attentive to our needs, checking on us every now and then to make sure everything is OK. Food portion was a little small but delicious. Very romantic and cozy ambience, loved...the plush chairs and music selection as well. Would definitely visit again!More

It was our 1st time in Republic for a high tea. Customer service is good and the food choices are excellent. Love the ambiance and the music.

Came here for the weekday high tea and it was so disappointing. The waiter for our table was Dunston and he was coming way too strong - he asked "are you excited for the high tea?!" to which my heavily pregnant and tired sister responded...with a no. And he had to respond back "why not? why aren't you excited?". Please learn how to read the room and body language of your customers. What must've been a well-intended act of hospitality ended up being a huge turn off and unpleasant start to our afternoon. But that wasn't the worst part. Barely into the high tea, I was surprised by an additional ingredient in my dish. In the 2nd course, a salmon wellington-esque pastry dish, I was stunned by a rather big piece of PLASTIC in my dish. I've had only sliced it in half and was stunned by this translucent additional ingredient sticking out like a sore thumb. I thought it could've been a piece of onion or perhaps leek, so I picked it up with my fingers and tried to shred it. I wish it was indeed onion/leek, but It wasn't fibrous at all and was almost like a piece of raffia string. I was incredibly turned off and called for the manager and waiter to bring out the chefs. They were indeed remorse and the manager asked multiple times how she could make it up to us - "how about a free cake?" she asked. At that point, I've lost all appetite and even felt like puking though I only ate a few pieces of chips from the 1st round lol. No way in hell would I eat anything else from this place so the cake, while well-intended again, was the last thing on my mind for them to try and make things right. We left the bar as a whole and said the only way to make things right would be to just write the rest of the course off and let us leave. We had a much more pleasant high tea at TWG instead. Perhaps Republic Bar is better off just as a bar than serving any food or high tea. Please leave the food serving to The Colony opposite instead - I've been eating there for YEARS (back when they were still called Greenhouse) and they've been rather consistent with their food & service. This experience with Republic was the opposite and such a letdown.More

I have been to Republic Bar twice in the past two weeks, returning the second time because of the lovely experience I had on my first visit. The first one was for dinner and drinks with my husband, and we had a great evening. The...wine and cocktails were excellent, and we enjoyed the bar bites as well, our favourites being the truffle arancini which were crispy outside, warm and fluffy inside, the corn dogs which had a fantastic breading and came with the yummiest gooey mac and cheese croquettes, the flavourful pork toast, a creative riff on the classic chinese dish, and, my personal favourite, the brioche ice cream sandwich which, with the raspberry ice cream and peanut nougat, reminded me of an upscale pb&j sandwich. My second visit with a friend was equally enjoyable, with more great wine, a complimentary small glass of champagne which we much appreciated, and another tasty dish, the braised beef short ribs, which were unbelievably tender and served with the most gorgeous pillowy steamed buns. Also a hit were the chocolate pralines we chose out of the display case, a caramel, hazelnut and coconut one, which were clearly of a very high quality, just divine. But the best part about both visits was the service. I didn't get the names of our primary servers, which I regret, because they were excellent. The first evening was a lovely young woman who was warm and engaging, and an equally friendly gentleman served us the next time. The service was attentive, helpful and not overbearing, and everyone who helped us had great menu knowledge, both of the food and drinks on offer. The hosts who greeted and seated us, as well as the bartenders, were equally top notch. Really a fantastic service experience, and one of many reasons we'll be back again!More

Had lunch with the family here and it was a pretty good experience. Service was warm and friend,y, as usual, and the chef even came out to introduce some of the dishes. The amuse bouche was a nice start to the meal, and was followed...by prawn cocktail and iberico ham. Both were well presented and tasty. The prawns, especially, were plump and fresh. We all opted for the fish and chips as our mains. The cod was fresh and flaky, and the batter was just nice. The best thing about the dish were the shoestring fries, which went great with the aioli. The green pea sauce was also nice. Dessert was affogato with Nespresso coffee, and it was a nice end to the meal. They do high tea from 12 noon as well, and quite a few tables were having that.More

The...two barmen were simply charming, engaging, also knowledgable about all the drinks and they gave recommendations based on our likes. The food was incredible and presented so well, so delicious!

2 years since my last visit to chihuly lounge. Things has since changed. A new Republic it is now. But the same standard of service as before and food that is unique yet down to earth. Let the photos do the talking. Today is my...first visit to the Republic and it won't be my last. Thank you Dunstan Chew for the service and introduction of Republic to me and my guest. A shout out to Rudy for the warm welcome back. And not forgetting Martin for the great drinks. Highly recommended for frens or business hang out.More
