Description: Citricos restaurant brings the cuisine of southern Europe to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Citricos chefs rotate dinner selections frequently for a focused menu of American dishes inspired by the cuisine of Provençe, Tuscany and the Spanish Riviera—such as steaks seared on an oak-filled grill, creative risotto, pastas, and seafood depending on the season.The main dining room is airy and decorated with hues of yellow and orange. Old-world furnishings, wrought-iron railings and mosaic-tile floors contribute to the warm Mediterranean décor. Located on the second floor of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, windows near select tables in Citricos provide a phenomenal view of the courtyard. Other tables allow you to peer into the bustling show kitchen. Meet the Head Chef at Citricos Restaurant. The Chef's Domain at Citricos Restaurant: For an exclusive gourmet dining event that brings you even closer to the action on the culinary stage, reserve The Chef's Domain at Citricos. Diners at The Chef's Domain may order from the traditional menu or choose to have the chef create a menu for them in a private dining room that seats up to 12 Guests.

We dined at Citricos not once but twice during our recent trip. The food was phenominal. Their filet is to die for and their Spiced Pumpkin Cheesecake was out of this world. Looking forward to returning on our next trip.

Yes, we live here and frequent Citricos as often as possible. We absolutely love everything about the restaurant! Chef Phil is the best and all the management and staff are excellent! Service is always above and beyond and the food is always awesome. We often take out of town customers or visitors. We have had business dinners there also and they always are outstanding events. We have tried other hotel restaurants in the area and always come away thinking why didn't we just make reservations at Citricos? There is no place like home!

Had dinner with 9 other friends in private dinning area. The food was...too awesome! Everyone in our party almost licked their plates. The presentation of main course and dessert was fit for filming! The service was over the top and we had a personal visit from the chef...a young great gal! I order the grouper....never had fish melt in the mouth like that. The prices were reasonable in my opinion. WIll definitely make this a "must eat" when back in the area! Even though gratuity was included in our final bill...I still gave the waiter extra cash! Constant service with a smile!

The food is excellent but extremely pricey so be prepared- had a nice view of the fireworks at Disney during dinner. Great bartenders.

We've been somehow disappointed by the Citricos restaurant.
First of all we had a reservation @ 7.50pm and finally got seated at 8.30pm. It wouldn't be a problem if it was just my husband and myself waiting for our table (we could have enjoyed some extra drinks) but we were there with our 13 months old son who usually gets dinner no later than 7.30 and got fussy soon after we got seated.
Food was okay, no wow effect. Pricey, sure it was. We ordered a charcuterie dish from Italy and Spain to share. Well, some of the meat was sitting in the refrigerator for a long time, it tasted not as good as it should.
Main courses were okay, but over $50 each!
Nice the presentation of ice cream dessert, served 3 separate little cones with a scoop of ice cream each.
Wine list was fine.
