The shrimp and grits were life altering. Good selection of appetizers. We did the cheese board and while it didn't do much to fill, the flavors were good. Excellent service and a nice atmosphere.

We were staying at the Residence Inn downtown and they recommended this restaurant for my gluten free needs (I have a serious allergy). The ambiance was lovely, the server was friendly and attentive (but not too much) and the food was A-MAZ-ING!

Octopus is a tricky seafood to cook. Obviously the chef at Citrus knows a thing or two about making a tender, flavorful grilled octopus dish. It was listed as a starter but with the beans it was served with, made for a nice light lunch. Service was quick and got me back to my meeting right on time. The blue... More

It's downtown away from the normal tourist places and is outstanding Went last Saturday night and can say service and food quality would be hard to beat A very different menu that you can see on their web site Not cheap but a very good value, so DO This One

Solid menu, food & service. Felt well-served & taken care of until end of meal when our server got a little harried with more tables as the place got busy. Busy is a good sign - right? Would definitely return.

The first time I visited Citrus was back in 2009 shortly after it opened. I still remember the dish I had to this day--squid ink ravioli, which was something I had never even heard of before. It ended up being one of those unique dishes that was so good, but also so rare. In any case, I was excited when... More

I visited the restaurant for a business dinner. There were 5 of us. The service was very good. The food very well presented and it taste it delicious. The menu has something for everyone. I had the Ribeye and it was one of the best i ever had. The meat was cooked perfectly.

We've heard a lot about this place so we gave it a try for lunch. The food was typical American food But we still enjoyed it because of friendly service and nice atmosphere overall.

I have been here three times. After the first visit I decided I would give it another try because many rave about the place. A few months later I ended up at Citrus for a business lunch. None of the meals I had at Citrus were anything better than mediocre, pricey meals. The atmosphere is fine, you can converse or... More

What is about Americans who like these soulless restaurants which are all about up front show but lack any flair or imagination Ok so the food was ok but nothing more and service was good But I would not pay to eat there myself It's all too corporate for my liking Full of old farts with their Amex cards showing...
