One of the BEST Restaurants.

You'll be happy to add CITRON to your favorite list for Palm Springs dining. The food is absolutely delicious and the dining atmosphere is casually elegant. Great service, amazing food and reasonable pricing….. what more can you ask for?!

Citron's glam setting poolside at the Viceroy Palm Springs is a lovely setting for lunch, which gets even better with excellent service and a $15 bento box option. My husband had the Viceroy box which featured a fantastic carrot veloute cold soup, signature burger, truffle fries, green salad and a quinoa salad as well. Every bite was delicious. I had... More

When in Palm Springs my husband and I always stop by the Viceroy... the grounds are beautiful and we have always enjoyed dining at Citron. This past Valentine's dinner was very special thanks to Executive Chef Patrice Martineau, his 4-course special menu was magnificent and a lovely introduction to his international cuisine talent! You can see his passion on the... More

We dined at Citron the evening after Valentine's Day, but unexpectedly (and unfortunately) were offered the same limited, fixed menu. They were able to accommodate gluten-free only with bland chicken and potatoes, and the salmon was soft and flavorless. We didn't bother with dessert. Very disappointing and way over-priced.

Wonderful service, spectaculars view (if you sit in the cabana) good food. We went there on our last morning for breakfast before catching the plane. Wonderful way to end your trip to Palm Springs. Pricey but worth it.

My partner & I had dinner here on Valentine's Day. Valet service was great, we were seated promptly, & that's as good as it got. We were seated inside which was fine since I didn't even realize they had such a large outside area around the hotel's pool. No biggie, as I was there for the company & not the... More

Food was ok but not worth the price, and service was very slow, so much that we got complimentary desert and coffee! The location of the diner was also not very good, as people pass by all the time and its noisy.

Amateurish service. Dreadful entrees that weren't in any way French. Chicken in thick cream sauce with chunks of bacon?

The venue and atmosphere at Citron are superb – hip, warm, inviting, festive and unique. The food is exceptional, beautifully presented and delicious. The wine list is good, and surprisingly well-priced. Unfortunately, all of these nice things were ruined by service that was so very, very, very bad that it turned a 5-star experience into a 2, or even 1,... More

I have to congratulate Viceroy for acquiring such a talented Chef! The food was expertly prepared with such obvious attention to detail. The salmon was brilliant and beautifully presented and the bento box idea is ingenious. So fun to see how the components were paired with the main entree. Definitely a creative way to dine. We love this place and... More
