In September I dined at this restaurant and left my prescription eye glasses behind. I called and talked with the staff the next day they were opened. Yes - they had the glasses - even describing them - and said they would be happy to send them to me. Take the address and said they would go out in a... More

Somehow I have missed this wonderful place just north of 50 on Orange. It was worth the trip and we were so glad we tried something new outside our area. The mussels are the best in my opinion. Had several this month and none compare. These were perfectly cooked and served with a lightly spiced sauce with slices of chorizo... More

Downtown Orlando has a limited number of business-class restaurant. Citrus is among them and is there to cater to the local business crowd and people who feel the need to go to fancy restaurant. The restaurant is decidedly über chic but there's an underlying insecurity in its ability to deliver. Just in case the diner is questioning his experience, Citrus... More

Half hour later our entrees came out (Pork Chops) and they were cold and raw! We sent them back to get recooked and ten minutes... More

Friendly staff, nice ambiance. Not the first time I have eaten here but disappointing this time. The mussels were good, but both of our wahoo servings were extremely dry and overdone. Other members of our group got the pork chops. Both were quite tough and full of sinews, very difficult to cut. Certainly not the wait staff's fault but the... More

I was staying nearby and my hotel concierge recommended Citrus. It was great advice. I remember the tuna crude and the mussels being delicious. Service was professional. Price was reasonable.

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
