We stayed in the beautiful Viceroy hotel for 3 nights. We decided to try the restaurant there called Citron. After our first meal we could not go anywhere else. From breakfast to dinner the food is just amazing and so is the atmosphere, the service and the decor. The taglioni with lobster is delicious, the gazpacho is perfect, the mediterranean... More

We had the pleasure of dining here recently and wow what a great time. I would highly recommend to those visiting this area to check out this place. Atmosphere - very good. Modern, clean, inviting. The entry way is basically hidden - would have driven right by if it wasn't for the valet station. Made you feel like you were... More

The only reason I did not give this restaurant a top rating was because the menu was very limited. The food was very good but I would expect a restaurant with as high a reputation as this place has would bave more of a selction on its menu. The service was friendly and personable and accurate but a bit slow.... More

Trendy designer Kelly Wearstler set the scene for this Palm Springs classic, and fortunately the food and service are equals of the design, inside and out. We've been here countless times and consider it de rigueur for Palm Springs visitors. The reaction is always "Wow! We didn't know this was here!" It deserves to be more widely known, as opposed...

The Viceroy Ambiance speaks for itself, however the service, cocktails and small plates lived up to that classy standard. Close out of town friends were welcomed to this trendy spot that was not crowded.(We were early) Our server, Harrison was impeccable. He was trained well and exuded a naturally polite, manner, downright charming , yet a patient demeanor.He knew the... More

Small plates and drinks at the Citron - best kept secret! Beautiful surroundings, great place to meet the girls. Ask John to make a Desert Jewel!

This is our third visit to Citron over the past several years when we travel to the Palm Springs area. Each time has been a wonderful experience. We sat outside by the pool in a covered tent cabana. The service was excellent, food outstanding and the atmosphere outside by the lit pool was special. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday... More

Have gone here twice for breakfast. Citron is the restaurant for the Viceroy hotel. Small but nicely done white interior dining. Similar exterior dinning near the pool. Now at night this entire place has a much classier and more romantic feel.. Lighting, lighting.. in the day you notice the white seating is getting a bit worn. The staff is very... More

We had lunch with friends at Citron on a warm sunny afternoon (what else?) and were seated by the pool. We arrived after what might have been the luncheon peak hour, so the restaurant was not crowded. The service was leisurely but attentive. The food was not bad, but it was not in any way distinguished. I ordered a club... More
