This place has a very nice atmosphere and is in a relative convenient location. The food is also presented very well.The prices are decent for a power lunch or a nice lunch on a weekend, BUT the dinner prices a bit steep for the quality of food. Don't be fooled by the labels and descriptions on the menu, the food... More

I come here pretty often. Today was just not as good. Plantain chips soggy and they are not serving the citrus butter anymore. I had meatloaf special. The bacon wrapped was almost raw and the meatloaf was sweet for my taste. Not what I expected. Service was great.

This is a lovely restaurant! Decor is casual contemporary and beautiful. You can go in jeans or dress it up. They are not pretentious at all. Menu has basically stayed the same since it opened years ago. The Mayor Buddy salad is soo delicious. Have also had mussels and a few other items. I have NEVER had a bad meal.... More

Citrus has the best fish tacos ever! The blue corn shell makes all the difference. Great wine selection and excellent service. Highly recommend!

Dined for lunch recently with a client. The greeter happily showed us to our table and the waiter soon stopped by, helping us understand the day's specials. Some of the half-dozen daily specials were quite unique, and I chose the pork belly sandwich, Think 1/2-inch thick bacon on a bun with lettuce, tomato, pickles and lightly spicy sauce (I opted...

Experienced the Citrus Restaurant for a private party celebrating the engagement of a family member on Jan 31, 2015. The attentiveness, timing and courtesy of the staff was flawless. The food was excellent! The valet guys and the hosts really worked hard that night - so a shout out to them too! Thanks for making this a memorable event for... More

Recently I scheduled a dinner at Citrus in Downtown Orlando. The food was excellent and very unique. I can truly see why this restaurant is continually voted one of the best in Downtown Orlando. The wait-staff is very responsive and, again, I can't say enough about the unique menu offering (think Venison Short-Ribs with sweet corn relish). I had the... More

Citrus is a local favorite and always a good choice. Had a wonderful wedge salad today. Great service, location and easy parking.

I really don't even know where to start. We were looking for a special place to eat for date night, as we were just in Orlando for one night and we had tickets to the Cirque Show at 9. Making reservations through their website was super easy, I was able to just do it on my phone. We were greeted... More
