Description: Republic Dining is located on level ! of the historic Republic Hotel. Enjoying panoramic views over Pitt and Bridge Streets, the dining room is an oasis from the wheeling and dealing of the CBD during the day and an intimate venue by night. A bright and airy room with a classic bistro feel, it's a venue to enjoy amiable table service and a glass or two from the extensive wine selection. Republic Dining has always been famous for their fresh oysters and in-house cold smoked salmon. Now, after the recent renovations, Chef Lee Thompson has access to a Montague Broiler, directly imported from the USA, which is producing premium steaks, lamb and pork. Chef hasn't forgotten those who are in the mood for lighter fare, with seasonal fish and house made gnocchi amongst other dishes. Inside Tip : Ask your waiter if the off the menu Rib-Eye is available.

I’ve been a regular for years and constantly its been awesome... For some reason it’s gone majorly down hill... Food quality is still good but service was shocking, absolutely shocking... Wine spilled, plates just dumped ultimately I would question going back..

I enjoyed a pleasant meal with a friend at Republic Dining. It was a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was quiet. The server welcomed us and quickly had us seated with menus, wine list and water. After ordering, the meals were delivered quite quickly. I enjoyed my barramundi fish - it was pan fried and then lightly baked - firm and tasty with a crisp skin. My friend enjoyed his lamb dish. We shared a mixed salad which was very good. There was a good wine list with an acceptable choice of wine by the glass.

Overall, very good food and friendly and efficient service.

The food was really amazing. A little expensive for a regular night out. I did expect to have more than a choice of 2 very expensive french champagnes on the wine list. Perhaps consider a proseco in the future. The service was excellent. Will be back but for a special occasion

Excellent rooftop venue, and a great place to meet friends near Circular Quay. Does not overlook the water, but as a result is not as overrun with tourists.

Went with a key client and as he was a local was very upset for him regarding the such slow service. It took a good 45mins to order and wine glasses were regularly left empty and not refilled by the only waitress that was working. My colleague helped by pouring the wine for her and she took massive offence to this saying it was her job. There wasn't even an apology at the end and we all felt we weren't welcome at this venue anymore. Considering the bill was over 900 bucks I expected more from this place. Food on the other hand was very good shame it was such slow and ultimately rude service.
