Great food, service and atmosphere

After having the worst meal the night before at a local restaurant it was refreshing to have had one of the best meals at Citrus. Our server Mike was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

This one has been a favorite for years.... They changed the menu... Why? Had the meatballs and they were nothing special. Had the creamy turnip greens and they were good and spicy - huge portion. The only good change was s slight change to the orange cake. It is really good and not too sweet.

Our family just had dinner there at the end of March. Good service and good food. We started out with the roasted Brussel sprouts as an appetizer that was very good. The grilled salmon was delicious, as well as the shrimp and grits and the scallops. Will return since our son lives 2 blocks from the restaurant.

Citrus is my go to favorite for wonderful atmosphere, outstanding service, and consistent food quality. Everything here is always fresh and artfully presented. My all time favorite is the Wagu Beef Carpaccio ( to build the prefect bite...be sure to have a little garlic, manchego, and arugula in each bite) Yum!!! We always order an array of apps, sides, and... More

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!
