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

Filet Mignon flatbread, black bean soup, orange avenue cake & Florida Cracker beer. Superb dinner ! I visit this restaurant often while in Orlando and it has always been a consistent & reliable experience.

While in Orlando, a business associate and I took a business lunch at the Citrus Restaurant located on North Orange Avenue. It was early afternoon and the restaurant was busy but the hostess seated us promptly. The wait-staff was at our table in no time taking our drink order and explaining the menu. Our meals arrived quickly and the food... More

Let me start by saying that Citrus is in the building where I have my office, so I eat there a lot because of convenience. But if the food was bad I would not. The food is always of high quality, expertly prepared and professionally served. Citrus is always busy during peak lunch and dinner so make a reservation. Because... More

Delicious food in a very nicely layed out restaurant. Staff were super kind and helpful with suggestions . Portions felt huge - what a big steak, too much to eat with an appetizer. I highly recommend trying the orange cake for dessert, delicious.

This place is delicious. If you haven't tried mussels before, order the ones on their appetizer menu. They are the BOMB. I've never even eaten mussels before, but at the insistence of a colleague, i tried them. Now, I order them every single time. The rest of the menu is awesome. The beef carpaccio is amazing, so are their flat... More

We booked 15 minutes before showing up using Opentable. Arrived (from nearby fantastic hotel Courtyard Marriott). We were seated in a private area that was fantastic. Our waiter (Shane) was knowledgeable of both drinks and food menus. We started with a fantastic manhattan using Four Roses Bourbon. The bartender was fantastic and it was one of the best I have...

We had 10 people for a business dinner at Citrus. The restaurant is located in downtown Orlando. The menu is varied to meet the needs of a variety of visitors. We had the calamari appetizer. It had a nice and unique taste garnished with jalapenos, I believe. I had the salmon. It was perfectly cooked and delicious and served on... More

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
