Have been to Republic multiple times before but this was the worst experience and I will never go back to this establishment.
Won a VIP table on Instagram for this past Thursday. We arrived and the hostess brought us to our table - enjoyed our drinks throughout the night. When we were ready to leave, server brought us the tab (which is gratuity + taxes when you get "VIP treatment"). I specifically told the server that we would be paying in cash for the bill plus her tip. We ended up giving her at least $100 in cash (our check was for $51) but I wanted to add $20 to her tip so I told her to put that on my debit card. Little did I know that she would be charging me for the entire bill plus the $20.
When I called to complain about this, not only did I have to call 3-4 times before getting any real help, but the management just kept telling that my bank had placed a "hold" on the money and that was why my debit card charge was for $85! At no point has this "Hold" gone back onto my card (I was told it would go back on Monday). All the while, one manager spoke with our server, and our server told her that we all paid her separately in cash (not true, all the cash was left in the book) and she also told her manager that she knew one of us personally (also not true). I was never refunded any of my money and the manager on duty that I spoke with even had the nerve to say that they "comped us a bottle of liquor" insinuating I shouldn't really be complaining - keep in mind, this is part of what you win when you receive "VIP"... I just cannot believe this place. I've never had a worse customer service experience and I will never go back.
You don't need to know how to spell roooooo to know a bad one . ROFL grammar nazis crack me up.
Why do folks insist on taking their dogs out to bars and clubs? Do you think the animals actually KNOW where they are? It is a PET, not a DATE. If your life is so miserable and failing that you need a dog to give you some company in bars and clubs, and stores, then you need to reassess your existence and find some human friends. And, please, all you pet lovers, don't bother to chide me for my lack of caring for your canines. Pets have a place in our lives, and lots of other people who may want to frequent the same places maybe don't want your dog rubbing up against them, smelling up the place, and taking up valuable space meant for humans, not animals.
Rex: Perhaps before you attempt to criticize a restaurant, it would be nice to either learn proper language skills and English writing skills, or possibly have someone with some education spell check and work check your posts. You appear to be an ignorant clod, which will also reflect on your opinions of an eatery.
They don't do the club scene anymore. They do live music on Friday and Saturday nights on the patio from 7-10pm. No cover. Also, they are dog friendly on the patio. Went last week and it was amazing.
Nice English. Did you mean that you rue the roux?
And Rex Eugene Bolin needs to learn how to spell "roux" and write properly before you criticize it!
The cook needs to learn to make a rue. The worst Gumbo I have ever had. I would never eat here again. I order a 2 glass of wine it was never sever. The Coffee I had at the end of the meal was old and burn. Can I say more.
Excellent and true to French cooking and ingredients. Worth the trip to this bistro.
Dellz is awesome. Mozzo is good. East Bay is below average. Momma Goldberg is shit.
The comments section in each link is valuable; it would be wise to read through them.
great patio and great speakers
This place is like the Donald Trump of restaurants.

As promised - here is service review of Ansons - just our second visit - we were born here. Just the two of us for a special birthday on a Thursday night. Reservations at the right time and arrival on time placed us on the wall section as tables in the middle are for more than two - interesting if you are like me and want to speak with strangers, but if you want quiet, not sure if Ansons is the answer. The fellow in the suit said welcome in a pleasant manner, I introduced myself and asked - he said he was Mike. Up next to tidy the table (in the process he left us 1 napkin short) and annouced our server, as above he said he was Paul (all business). Later we found out the server was Robin. Very good to us - at first, but we were later taken from her attention to help a larger table across the way. The saving person was Brandon from the kitchen who had the task of bring us our food. I made sure to hand him his tip even though I also provided an 18% total to the bill, 2% short to make a point more to me than Ansons - the bill with tip was $175. Filet was not as expected, salty; Golden Tile, OK 3oz kinda slight. It will be another three years for repeat visit.
I never ate there until today and had a terrific lunch and unfortunately I'm a bit of a picky eater, especially when I go out. Everything that came to the table was excellent.
Husband from the pit of hell!

Hye, Saturn. You are just completely incorrect....again. Ye Olde Fashioned customers are MAINLY locals. They love the food and the service. That is why they have been around for decades. Must be doing something right, as they are seldom located where the tourists frequent.
