Old-world furnishings, wrought-iron railings and mosaic-tile floors contribute to the warm Mediterranean décor. Located on the second floor of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, windows near select tables in Citricos provide a phenomenal view of the courtyard. Other tables allow you to peer into the bustling show kitchen. Meet the Head Chef at Citricos Restaurant.

First, I'll start with the good things. The wine list is second to none. The atmosphere is lovely (we had a table right next to the pastry chef and the smell was incredible). My appetizer, the Arancini, was really good. Also, our service was very good and attentive. Now to the not-so-good things. While my filet mignon was cooked exactly... More

I don't usually focus on eating fish when on vacation but this year after losing some weight prior to vacation i decided to do just that. I was very happy with the pan seared snapper at Citricos. It was served on a small bed of spaghetti with a very light sauce and it was delicious and not heavy at all.... More

The best restaurant experience for us in a long time. Our waiter, Ray, was professional, helpful and attentive. The restaurant manager, Boris, stopped by everybody's table to inquire if we enjoyed our food and a little chat, if wanted. I prefer gluten free food. Chef Johnathan visited my table to help with food choices and accommodate my needs. Amazing.

My husband, my son, my son's friend and I ate a late dinner (9 p.m.) after the two boys sang with their school group in the Grand Floridian lobby. None of us had eaten here before. We were seated about 15 minutes early, which was nice because we were hungry. Our server appeared at our table immediately. She was very... More

We went with grandparents and Kia to this one. Food was good, had a really rice fish dish. The drink menu was good. Waitstaff and kitchen staff was great. Fun, until the bill arrived. Expect to pay premium prices.

Not the best experience for date night. 1. Atmosphere. Definitely not a romantic environment. The dining area was extremely loud which prohibits conversation at a table for two. Especially when you are squeezed between to tables of 5 or more people. 2. Dress Code. The restaurant has one, they just need to follow it. 3. Food Quality. Average based on... More

I came with a party of 6 to celebrate my husband's birthday a couple of weeks ago. Our reservations were for 7:15pm but we were not seated until 30 minutes after our reservation. Once seated we were not acknowledged or given water for another 15 minutes. We were ready to give our order by the time the waitress got to... More
