“Excellent seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Started with 2 dozen oysters and 2 lbs of crab claws. The appetizers were great. Very fresh - they said everything was caught that morning, never frozen. Also, they do not have a liquor license so they only have beer and wine, which was fine with us.

During the apps, the waiter came over to tell us there was only one hogfish left, which we were dying to try based on other reviews. It was excellent. Though everyone else loved their respective dishes (coconut shrimp, triple tail, scallops), I would recommend the hogfish if you can get it.

We tried the banana egg roll for dessert, which was fine, but I wouldn't order it again. Even after that, everyone at our table gave it 5 stars. We were too big of a party to sit outside, but I would recommend requesting a table outside if you can so you can people watch on 5th. We would return again in a heartbeat.

“One of our favorites.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Every time we go to Naples we eat here, and it's always good. It's usually not crowded, the service is very good, as is the food (but a bit expensive).

“Excellent Christmas Day Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

As a vegetarian who doesn't eat fish, I put chefs to the test every where I go. The chef at Citrus passed with flying colors. Ordering off menu is tricky and many kitchens respond with a grouping of vegetables and maybe a starch. The chef at Citrus served me a scrumptious chile relleno (veg) and my guest really enjoyed the crab cakes. It was a very busy day, with all tables filled, but, we felt well looked after by our server. It's great to know a place that can be accomodating and creative. Looking forward to my next visit.

“Great hog fish (but why is it named that?)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The hog fish is marvelous, and the fish and chips are delicious. The only problem is that too many people smoke at the outside tables (including the owners). Because Citrus is on Fifth Avenue, the outside tables are great. The smoking might keep us from going back.

“Wanted to like it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Service good. Food ok at best. Expensive for what it was IMHO

Fish taco needed seasoning? Tasted bland and the flavors were a little muddy. Shrimp chowder had good taste but only half a shrimp in a good size bowl.

Won't go back.
