I recently took my parents to Sunday brunch, the food was good, nice variety. But the plus was the service. Our waiter was great!

Citrus City Grille has an excellent selection of healthy foods. The service is always top notch and attentive without constantly being on top of you. Their steak is one of the best in Orange County.

Our party of three for Saturday lunch has visited Citrus City several times. We always have delicious food and love the bread. We often pick this restaurant because they have dedicated parking in the back. The area is notoriously difficult to find parking. Now that there is a Saturday brunch, the parking space is minimal unless you are handicapped.

Food, ambiance and service was excellent! If Panos is your server, you are in good hands! Bar is small so if you want to sit there, you need to get there early.

We visit Citrus City Grille frequently as their food and service are consistently outstanding. Situated in historic downtown Orange with an energetic vibe offering Mediterranean inspired cuisine and notable wine selection Citrus City Grille is a must visit. While the menu has something for everyone, there are signature must haves: Bacon Wrapped Dates, Grilled Octopus, Sea Bass, Lamb, and save... More

Modern space coupled with an innovative menu and impeccable service. Our party of three had varied entrees, all of which were equally as impressive, each were exceptional in presentation. Our waiter was spot on in service and we had a wonderful Saturday late lunch....dessert was equally impressive. We never felt rushed and were able to enjoy our time catching up.

This is a very cool restaurant! It has a wide variety of dishes which come served in a beautiful fashion and they taste as good as they look. If you are fortunate enough to meet the owner you will find him charming. He loves what he does and it shows in the food and the way they treat the patrons.

I had an early dinner so the service was quite slow probably because full staff was not yet present. However, when they did come, staff was pleasant and helpful. I had the chipotle hummus as an appetizer. Very mild but delicious. I split the stuffed chicken which was fabulous. I also ordered roasted brussel sprouts. They were slightly sweet and... More

Last minute snack in the mid evening. We sat at the bar and was served by Panos. Great Service and very suggestive of what to order. The octopus is delicious! We went back the next day just to order it again. They have a great happy hour everyday. I would encourage a visit to this gem in Old Towne Orange.
