Excellent

Our dinner was delicious. I had the barrelfish entree. The caesar side salad, although extremely small, was the best I've ever had, with a garlicky flavor.

I have been here three times. After the first visit I decided I would give it another try because many rave about the place. A few months later I ended up at Citrus for a business lunch. None of the meals I had at Citrus were anything better than mediocre, pricey meals. The atmosphere is fine, you can converse or... More

What is about Americans who like these soulless restaurants which are all about up front show but lack any flair or imagination Ok so the food was ok but nothing more and service was good But I would not pay to eat there myself It's all too corporate for my liking Full of old farts with their Amex cards showing...

Great atmosphere with extremely friendly service. Food was excellent. Highly recommend the salmon. They have a patio where you can dine and watch the activity of the downtown atmosphere. Great place.

The northern part of downtown Orlando has really changed...and the new urban residential neighborhood has several choices for meals and entertainment. The Citrus restaurant is a great place to meet friends or business acquaintances. Nice ambiance & good food.

We were in town for a concert, and the concierge told us that there were two good restaurants within walking distance. We decided to try Citrus and it worked out very well. I read the comment about lack of atmosphere, and it's on the mark. It seemed very few tables were set up in a way that would encourage warmth,... More

Have eaten at Citrus many times while on business in Orlando. The food and service are routinely excellent. And if you don't try the wahoo poke with watermelon, you are really missing a treat!

Citrus has an all new menu. I ordered the three course Prix fixe dinner of - Panzanella salad, shrimp and grits with a Key lime dessert. The salad was overwhelmed by too much balsamic and I LOVE balsamic vinegar. Arugula wilted under so much dressing. The shrimp and grits were coated with a brown salty sauce that made the dish...

Joined four other friends for a great chef tasting menu meal. Everything was exquisite. Six happy faces dined on a fabulous steak tartar, spicy watermelon salad, yummy Mexican street corn, best creamy grits ever, lovely Brussel sprouts an an amazing boned suckling pig. The brown butter pound cake with sassafras ice cream polished off a fabulous dining experience that was... More
