Citrus @ Hotel Valencia Riverwalk
Perfect business lunch spotAfter 10 years as a dinner patron, and occasional breakfast diner, I met an out-of-town client here for a lunch meeting. It was ideal. Free valet parking, outstanding and friendly service, respect for my request for a quiet table and top-notch food made it so. The made-to-order paella/pasta and fresh salads added to the experience. Citrus never disappoints me.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a nice dinnerWe made a reservation here at the last min because everywhere else we called didn't have our reservation time open. When we walked in, we were immediately seated. There weren't many other people in the place, and it was sparsely decorated. I wasn't a fan of the decor, but I would highly recommend Citrus for it's food! The crab cake was amazing- all of the flavors worked so well, and there were huge chunks of crab meat. I would definitely recommend the fried okra as well.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful servicMy wife and I and one other couple dined at Citrus prior to attending the
Majestic. The 3 course meal had a wide variety of choices and the portions were large
The staff was attentive without being obtrusive and we were able to enjoy a leisurely
meal and made it to the performance on time. I highly recommend them. We will

The food, the wine list and the service!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDowntown GemFresh, seasonal menu items are even better than described by the attentive, but unobtrusive wait staff. Scallop and crab cake appetizers were exceptional as were the Bronzini and Snapper entrees. Order the oxtail with aioli slaw appetizer- incredibly good despite how it might sound. A dessert described as a kind of cheesecake was not appreciated by the child who ordered it, but the adults at the table practically fought over it. It might just be the best meal we've had in San Antonio,even though we've been to many perhaps more well-known chefs' restaurants.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful pre-theater dinner.Wonderful pre-theater dinner. Worth dining here anytime!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceFood was great. Our waiter Michael made the experience even better. He gave great recommendations for food and wine. Do yourself a favor and get the banana spring rolls dessert and crab cake appetizer. You won't regret it.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect anytime Downtown SpotAhh, it's always refreshing to go to Citrus. It was 2 of us for dinner and we dined outside on the patio on the river. We were going to a Play so we had a good hour and half but would suggest 2 hours to really take your time and enjoy. The staff are very attentive to your time and what you want to do, in accordance to having your food on time.
We had the appetizers, crab cakes (fabulous) and the rock shrimp (fried and tasty). Then for the entrees we both had the Beef Filet. Delicious! The presentation of the dishes, the Chef must be very proud!
Don't forget about this wonderful downtown place! Have fun!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionI was a little concerned when I looked at the menu and saw the prices, but, we found the entire dining experience to be absolutely perfect. The wine list was extensive and we both found wines, by the glass, that we loved at a reasonable price. My companion started with the squash soup--great squash flavor, just the right steamy temperature. Could not have been better. I started with the heirloom tomato salad. It was large enough to share. We split the rock shrimp appetizer and the beef carpacio. Both were exquisitely prepared and just what we were looking for. Our wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. Dining out on the terrace made it a perfect meal.12/6/2012 12:00:00 AM
