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... read 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

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
