Had dinner at Citrus late on a Friday night. Inventive cocktail list and great appetizers. We had the plantain fried oysters and spinach salad for appetizers. The oysters were INCREDIBLE! For dinner, we had the trout (very good) and the shrimp and grits. Skip the shrimp and grits - definitely not the Southern specialty I was hoping for. Great service,... More

So this was an early business dinner- we did eat early- !7.45 or so. But the restaurant seemed just not ready for us, we had booked and let them know what time we where coming. Drinks where served and pleasant enough. The black bean soup sounded really nice but just had too many ingredients which spoils a really very good... More

I ate here for dinner after trying it for lunch a few weeks ago. Both experiences were very good, but the dinner menu is unbelievably good. Excellent and friendly service. A little pricey, but worth it. Easily walkable to from the Courtyard Marriott nearby.

We visited on a Saturday night around 7:30. It was surprisingly not busy at all. We were seated in a nice booth. The ambiance and surroundings of the restaurant are very nice and relaxing. We started with some drinks and the delicious wedge salad. So yummy! I ordered the filet for my dinner. The meat was so tender and delicious... More

We went here for lunch, and it was great. The service was a tad slow, but my chicken sandwich was delicious and very fresh. The desert we had was also incredible. I think this will be one of our must-hit-spots for the future. It is also nice if you want to see the luxurious properties of the JW Marriott and... More

We went to this restaurant without reservations but called ahead to be sure they were not needed. The front staff is very helpful and friendly. We had a party of seven and were seated in a comfortable quiet area where we could talk. The waiters (we had two) came and took drink and appetizer orders then promptly returned to take... More

I have been going to Citrus since it opened. Each time the food and the service have always been top notch. I can not remember one single time that I have had an issue with anything at this place! In Downtown Orlando there are very few places you can find attached free parking that allows you to get in and... More

Although the menu changes seasonally so not all menu items are available from online-to go with an open mind. Great atmosphere can walk from the hotel. Lobsters to unbelievable.

Visited on a weekday without a reservation for lunch. Sat in the bar/lounge area at a bar table. Lots of room and light from the windows provided enough to read. Parking garage nearby but I walked from the Doubletree which is a few blocks away. Nice outdoor area but it was Florida so too hot and humid on that day... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Citrus. We had the Bite 30 special, so much more than a bite - the food was excellent. For appetizers we had the calamari which is mixed with spicy peppers and the carpaccio , which may have been my favorite of the night. Paper thin sliced meet with a perfect horseradish sauce - really... More
