The view was great for the 4th of July fireworks but the food........... My steak was ordered medium and came out RAW (deep red cold RAW, not pink, RAW). Sent it back while the rest of the table ate their steak and when it came back it was RAW again. Sent it back and it finally came out and was still RAW. This was extremely disappointing as Republic of Texas was always a good place to eat. No apology from the management only the waitress who obviously was not the one who cooked the meal. I will not go back and will encourage anyone I know not to go there. This type of service is totally unacceptable.

Went for X-mas eve at 6pm. We were only one of 4 couples in the entire place, they sat us at a table with a huge pillar next to us blocking the view, then 20 minutes later they sat a table of 4 with dozens of other tables available with a much better view.
The server was not interested in our selections and when I asked for a simple white peppercon sauce to be prepared for my steak he replied"" everything is pre-made"" not use to this in other 4 star resturants as a white peppercorn sauce is easy to make.
The hollandaise and the bernaise sauce was marginal and cold.
Everthing is ala carte 10$ for a baked potato 10$ for hasbrowns 10$ for brocolli.
Price is high, the filet mignon was 34 for the 8 oz, it was delicious but the ambiance was not what we expected.
Key lime pie was fantastic.
The internet menu is not up to date and neither are the prices.
I would return for lunch but probalbly not for dinner.
My date (husband) was the best part of the evening.
Valet parking was very good, but he did rod my sports car around the tight corner leading up to the Omni.

This restaurant is one of few in Corpus Christi that has atmosphere and has some pretty good food. Its a little on the high side, but that is ok, when you are compensated by an awesome view of the bayfront and its surroundings. I took my wife here a couple of times and the food has been about average maybe a little more. The quality is there, but maybe the taste is off a bit. My wifes steak was undercooked just a tad but passed. My fish ( i think it was snapper) was good, but it was piled high on top of the fixings which I am not into that. I look for more simple dishes that you can distinguish each of the flavors. The service was excellent and the wine selection is second to none here in Corpus Christi. I would like to see more of these higher quality restaurants pop up in the downtown area, so that there would be a choice and the competion would raise the standards of all these restaurants. Its a romantic place for you and your loved one to go to.
We had a party of 20 eat here for Valentine's Day and we all had such a terrible experience we could only laugh. The menu was limited, the food was poor, and we paid WAY too much (about $100 / couple). I have lived in the area for 10 years and I'm certain that the restaurant owner or manager put in the 4-star review because I do not know of anyone in the Corpus area that feels that strongly about the Republic of Texas restaurant.

You think your paying for the view when you eat here, because it IS expensive. But the service and food are on par with some of the best restaurants I've ever dined in. They offer several entrees that are for the more adventurous. My only gripe was a slice of pecan pie that had a moderately burnt crust that they promised would be credited but they did not.

Atop the Omni, I have dined here a couple of times during my stays. Fantastic view of the city! Had the buffalo chop on my most recent visit and it was delicious. The bisque to start with was excellent. I highly reccommend the Quail Legs for starters as well. Wine list was thorough and reasonable. Service was good, but has always been pretty slow at taking orders, and getting food out. Several managers came by to make sure that everything was going well.
