Great breakfast

Pool side restaurant which served very good (if pricey) breakfasts. Relaxing way to start the day. Waiters were generally very good indeed.

This hotel just recently changed from the Viceroy to Avalon. It is one of the best kept secrets in Palm Springs. Located in the Tennis Club area. Dine in the Citron dining room or outside by the pool. Food is excellent and a place where the stars stay.

We took our neighbors here last night for a special dinner to thank them for all of their help moving into our new home....how embarrassing....first the smug waiter Harrison was clearly too cool to be waiting tables, and really did not have time to bother serving us. It was nearly 30 mins to get a glass of wine. Then we... More

My mom and I had a girls night and decided to try Citron at the Viceroy hotel. The ambiance is so nice and inviting. Fresh and clean. We were so intrigued by the menu, though limited there were sufficient options to try, so we went for it and had 3 courses. Our appetizers: carrot veloute and panzanella tomato burrata salad....

Loved Citron, delicious food and laid back atmosphere. Great place to cool down in after a long morning by the pool.

Main courses were fine.....salads & vegetables were bland. I would have expected a bit more pzazz for a French resturant

Lovely evening....we dine out often but never been to Citron. Such a wonderful surprise dining outside accompanied by guitarist singing romantic ballads. Super waiter, a little slow on replenishing water glasses, but very efficient and not a bit intrusive. Great food...the black cod was super.

My husband and I went to Citron last night for dinner. We were greeted by our waiter who was very energetic and friendly. I ordered the Miso soup and it was the best I've ever had. I ordered the salmon for an entre and it was just superb! Cooked to perfection with a little bit of crunch, it was sitting... More

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
