The dining room just isn't as good as the food. The menu is limited and the two times I've eaten here I've thoroughly enjoyed my dinner. The huge downside is the total lack of atmosphere in the room. You could be eating in a space that doubles as the office cafeteria through the day. It's a real shame - service,... More

My family and I recently had dinner at the Citrus restaurant. We have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. The chef is very creative with entrees such as salmon caesar, shrimp grits, and alligator tail. The vegetables are fresh and well prepared. The atmosphere is excellent. Facilities and bathrooms clean. Prices are reasonable. Service excellent. What is... More

My friend and I stop there for appetizers before a concert at The Citrus Bowl. There were a lot of exotic gamey items on the menu. As a non-meat, sometimes seafood eater, there was very little to choose from on the menu. The caesar salad was good as was the fish entree we shared. The collard greens were so spicy... More

This well-reviewed restaurant exceeded our expectations. Their limited menu is perfect when you find that every dish seems to be a home run (I've tried many). Best feature is that they allow the smaller lunch-style plates to be ordered at night, a perfect small portion for most. Even though I'd call this fine dining, prices are fair and part of... More

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
