Went for Friday night dinner and dancing 9pm. Waitress refused to wait for our party of 5 to arrive (middle aged woman, black hair) even though we had been there a total of 30 minutes. Blatantly lied telling us “we must move to the bar since there were more reservations waiting). Our friends arrived after a few minutes leaving the table and a bunch of empty tables were open. Did not let a member of our party to enter because of him wearing jogging pants, despite us being there to eat. Really upsetting experience for a place I looked forward to attending frequently.

Amazing food, service needs improvement. We ordered espresso... they forgot, never asked if we wanted drinks, just asked 2 people at our table, also not very friendly.

The food, ambiance, and noise level were great. The service was not as good as the last time. Our server wasn't too familiar with the menu items and was confused at some of our questions due to allergies. Besides that, we had a great experience and will be back soon.

Great food, waitress was very attentive and loved the vibe.
The only thing I was disappointed in was my seating arrangement. I made a reservation for standard seating and when I arrived the hostess informed me that something happened with their other location which sent all of their reservations over to this location.
As a result, I was only offered high top or outdoor seating. I came to see the DJ that was playing and I could only hear the music from outside. Very disappointed as this was my first time here.

We heard about the place and thought we would try it. The food was okay but it seems that our waitress was not having a good day and we were the brunt of it. Her face just said - I’m annoyed what do you want’ she asked us if we were ready to order and just walked away, when we said we needed a few minutes, we had to call her back for at least a drink order she said ‘oh yeah’. She bought back our drinks and didn’t know which beer was witch and asked us to figure it out. Not joking. A good waitress would have asked the bartender. She Told us kitchen closes at 9pm and never came back to get our order when we finally got a hold of her she just stared and said nothing we told her we would like to order before kitchen closes - again response was ‘oh yeah’. Bus boys were great. Music was good but overall experience was not. Hopefully her attitude and some training improves for a better experience for the customer.

First time guests. Both hostess were not engaging at all. They stared at us without a proper greeting and waited for us to initiate the interaction, these are the team members that represent the restaurant's mission and brand, poorly executed. After being sat at our table by the bar we were greeted by our server. Excellent at her job! She explained the menus and even offer some suggestions. She was very attentive throughout our meal. I started with some coffee which was nice, we then shared the Fig & Ricotta Toast as an appetizer and it was delicious! We had a Froze Rose and a pint of the Five Boroughs Winter IPA Draft, both drinks were good, specially the beer. For our entrees we had the Benedict Burger which I thought lacked a little bit of salt and pepper but was cooked to the temperature I had requested, fingerling potato side were also good. our other entree was the Pastrami Hash Brown which my wife loved. Overall the experience was great, we definitely will come back and try their forever brunch.

They put a lot of effort into this industrial design space gastro pub, a real attention to detail. The service was great. So many options to choose from. The salt pepper calamari had three different dipping sauces provided, great variety, something for every taste ,amazingly tender and crunchy, no grease! The lobster roll, was one of the best I have had outside Maine, delicious glazed brioche roll, and super fresh. Will definitely be going back. You can valet or park your own car in the back. I can see this being a regular go to spot. Worth checking out, reservations suggested, it's a popular place

Way too overpriced and unnecessary. The food was good but $20 for a hamburger and $10 for a glass of wine??? I don’t think so.

Was a good time, as always. Service was a little bit slower than I'm used to, but I didn't mind. I will always come back here. This has become my favorite place to come out for a drink and some apps. Or some brunch. Amazing time here.

The food at Richmond Republic is delicious. Their food is always consistent. The service is what is lacking, our waitress didn’t come over once to see how things were or if we needed a refill. I had to wave her down after our meal so we can get the check.

This is my go to neighborhood restaurant solely because of the quality of food. I hope they train their servers better

I hesitated to write this review because I know restaurants are struggling due to covid, but perhaps it will help the restaurant improve and not lose more customers. We were looking forward to this meal however we were left disappointed. After 35 minutes, entrees out having never gotten out appetizers. Food was cold, sent back and re-prepared only to be cold again. Appetizers finally arrive, fried pickles not cooked and wings that were so salty they were inedible. Then the bill arrived and while they did remove the appetizers, we were charged for the twice made cold chicken, and 3 glasses of wine having only had two. Definitely will not be back.

It was an ok experience. Our reservation was for 6:15pm We waited a half hour to just get a beer. Waiter came back twice to tell us the beer we chose was was out. Then upon a second choice- also out. It took 45 minutes to get our appetizer of one doz raw clams order. Finally our entree of corn beef and cabbage was served around 7:30. I don’t mind waiting a little but your business should offer at least a bread basket or chips or something to get guests started while waiting.

Two adults and a teen for an early dinner. The restaurant was not at capacity when we arrived and we were seated promptly. Our sever was very nice and efficient. Our drinks and apps came without much ado. Unfortunately the entrees didn’t come out together. Our teen ordered a burger and was happy with the result. Husband ordered the pulled pork sandwich and while it was tasty, the bun was too soggy— perhaps better served with bun on the side; and finally my steak salad took forever to come out. The server involved the manager to speed things up which was helpful... we would def return for another meal as we’ve been here a few times before and food and service are usually excellent.
