We recently spent a week at the Grand Floridian and ate twice at Citricos. First time was with a party of 5 - the service was excellent, beautiful table settings, a wonderfully varied menu, and delicious desserts. One of our party was vegetarian and she was thrilled with her meal as well. I had the winter root vegetable soup which delicious, flavorful and creamy and beautifully presented in a gorgeous modern bowl. Just the right flavoring here as root soups can be bland if you don't add some seasonings. This soup could have been a meal with the basket of wonderful fresh baked breads. I also had the cuban pork wheel (name?) appetizers as my entree - also wonderfully flavored and deliciously tender. The combination made a wonderful meal.
On our second visit, I shared the filet mignon steak with my husband. They kindly split the steak and gave us each our own vegetables etc., and this had to be the best steak I've ever eaten!! Melt in your mouth like budda tender and cooked to absolute prefection. And this review is from someone who was a professional chef on a private cattle ranch for 8 years, so I know my way around food and a good cut of meat.
My only disappointment at this location is they don't enforce the dress code. This is a lovely setting and a nice change from the kid-geared everything at Disney, so it is nice to come at least in a pair of slacks or an appropriate sundress. But flip flops, t-shirts, shorts and all are allowed in. A big deal? No. And I must say the staff are equally warm & inviting to all who enter, and I watched them closely making great efforts to make kids comfortable and get them exactly what they wanted to eat including chocolate milk with a Mickey Mouse crazy straw.
I would return to this restaurant everytime I was at Walt Disney World Orlando. Enjoy!!
