What is all the hype? Not impressed at all

I was excited to try this place after taking a look at all the great reviews. However, after having incredibly slow service by our server as well as being completely confused by the menu selection I changed my mind. The server told me it was tapas style and was designed to be family style. Who charges $20 a plate for tapas? Plus the fact that one of the menu items are different pieces of ham? $15 for ham?

Amazing food with a few hiccups

I was REALLY looking forward to having dinner at the Publican. I know brunch is supposed to be their forte but the dinner menu had me a 'sucking pig'.

Fantastic Meal

I went to the Publican Friday night with a group of friends. Everything was perfect. We were seated right away, the service was great and the food was wonderful. I will definitely be back!

Deep red, full body, a meritage I think but could be wrong. Possibly the best mussels I've ever tasted. And, wait for it. a pork belly that was so succulent and jiucy on the inside, but crispy on the outside. Mmmm. We al... view more

poor service and attitudes

We showed up at this restaurant with high expectations, given the quality at Avec and Blackbird. Unfortunately, we were sorely disappointed. We were told we would either have to wait for 40 minutes for a table (on a Monday night), or stand at the bar. We chose the bar, but it still took the waiter a half an hour to take our beer order, and then they would only offer a very limited food menu at the bar. By the tim... view more
