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

We liked everything. The service was outstanding, and food was great. Parking was by Valet, or street parking so that could be a dislike for some.

We are regularly in downtown Orlando and have been disappointed in the variety of restaurants open for lunch downtown. Someone recommended that we stop by Citrus. We were very pleasantly surprised! I am a chef and we search out really great food. We will definitely be back to try their dinner menu.

I went here for a rehearsal dinner so we received a prefix dinner with dessert. There was not a single morsel that did not melt in my mouth. I was so impressed. And the staff treated us very well. I would definitely go back

This restaurant is one of those that is very attractive and alluring. From the outside it is vibrant and well notices, it offers indoor and outdoor seating. Inside it expresses itself in a way that is provocative and without apologies. I was in the mood for something lite. I had the Shell Salad, it was the prefect size for mid-day... More

We went to a birthday dinner last weekend here. I had been a couple times before for lunch but it was years ago. It is a really nice place. We had a very large party so we had 2 tables of 12. Our server was excellent. It was like you never saw him but you always had everything you needed.... More

There is an effort to make this a great restaurant but it is not that good. For $30 a plate or more I expect some amazing food. The food was different but the taste was average. It was a noisy environment, no background music, a bar takes up half the restaurant. I was not treated or served any better than... More
