We stayed at the GF and I had booked Citricos for Valentine's Day. We dropped our daughter off at the Kids Club for babysitting (see note at end). While the menu was interesting, they weren't offering anything special or over the top for Valentine's day, which I was suprised about. That said, what we had was overall very good. Not 5 star foodie good, but much better than I expected. The chef's tapas plate was excellent, lots of good flavor - the sauteed shrimp, not so much. The filet was fine, but nothing notable and the short ribs were well, extremely mushroomy. Desserts were very good and charmingly presented. If I had to pick one restaurant over the other, I would pick Narcoose's over Citricos. I thought the atmosphere at Narcoose's was more romantic, had darker lighting, Citricos was very bright, tables were fairly close together and it was very noisy. Service was not very hopping either. I felt like Narcoose's food was more memorable as well. Not that Citricos is bad, it's worth eating at if you are staying at the hotel, it's just not the best choice. I would also choose Artist's Point over at the Wilderness Resort over Citricos - the food there was amazing (just take a taxi if you are staying at GF).
Also, a PS about the Kids Club Babysitting - we left our daughter here for Valentine's day but did not end up doing it again. It is very small, 3 small rooms a small tv and just felt very stifling. The place is in lockdown mode for the safety of the young children, but I just couldn't get over the claustrophic like feeling I got when we went in. I recommend you go check it out for yourself before committing to it. My daughter said it was ok, they did a craft, but she was in no way interested in going back. Staff seemed nice enough but my daughter is shy and no one walked over and tried to talk to her right away to make her feel comfortable which I found odd. I had to kind of push her into the group that was already eating and ask someone to please come and talk to her. I had planned to have drinks with hubby after dinner, but ended up racing back to get her early because I felt bad leaving her there! And she's 5 1/2! Good luck!
