It's been 8 years since we say at their tables and they do not disappoint. We loved it. Great dining in the jungle/rainforest. Looking forward to our next Citrus experience. A change of venue as well. Smaller and more intimate.

Marcella and her crew from Citrus took care of the food in our wedding, and we believe it was the most delicious food we could possibly have. Everyone was delighted about it! The menu was a unique mixture of ingredients, something different from what you will find in a normal wedding menu, and very appropriate for a wedding at the... More

Loved the staff, and the food was anywhere from fantastic to pretty good. My wife's pork tenderloin was awesome, as was my daughter's pasta. Execution on a seafood curry was just ok, but the appetizers made up for it. I'd suggest sticking with beer and wine, as I don't think they know cocktails there. Ordered a Manhattan and got some...

Great set up, food was amazing. The only thing I gave 4 points is because service to the table was very slow on a monday no busy night. Serves should be more attentive

Just ok, did not wow me. We are semi vegetarians and found the fair to be average in quality. Has an international clientele and decent wine list.

We went in with high hopes but were left disappointed. My wife ordered a shrimp dish and the first tasted like it was going past. Both of our meals were far under-spiced, and I heard the same comment from a neighboring table. The ambiance and service were good, and the waitress was nice enough to comp my wife's meal after...

We walked in to Citrus without much hope at 8:30 on New Years Eve having left a nearby restaurant before we ate (see previous review) they only had room at the bar but welcomed us anyway. We were very grateful they had tried to accommodate us but decided that given it was a $75, 6 course set menu for New... More

Had diner for 2 at this welcomingly decorated restaurant. Trilingual staff was very friendly and helpful. We could choose from a la carte menu or a full 3 course menu priced at 21 usd. My girlfriend chose the fusion style ceviche with coco and banana. I'm used to eat at quite experimental resto's all over the world but the banana... More

We visited this restaurant last night at the last minute because our power was out. With no reservation, they happily accommodated our family of 8 including two little ones. The food and service were great. Some of the dishes we had were the ceviche, pork, caprese, calamares, the fish of the day, the vegetable curry... all were very good. We... More
