Diner Reviews
  • "I met some friends out for lunch and we enjoyed everything about the place. I plan on going back for restaurant week in August."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Citrus Bistro has a very diverse menu and has options for even non-seafood types. The service was great, we were quickly seated and cared for throughout our dining experienced. Our server was familiar with the menu and a great help on providing direction for our selections based upon our interactions. The live Jazz band was great, the atmosphere was inviting and upscale and still somewhat casual. Most importantly the food was spectacular. For my family, this is not a cheap meal. However, for the quality of the food and what you get, it is definitely a bargain. If you are looking for inexpensive mediocre food, this is not for you. If you are looking for great food at a fair price, you will love this place."

  • "Although this has been open for 9 months, we just heard about it last week from our son who had a great experience there. We went Monday evening and had a wonderful meal of salmon ceviche, poached salmon and seared sea bass with curry sauce. The waiter recommended a wonderful bottle of french white burgundy and was very engaging during the evening. The (French) Chef came by the table to check on things, all in, it was a great evening. We will definitely go back, they have a piano player on Friday and Saturday nights."

  • "A truly memorable dining spot. Scrumptious food, impecable service, and a delightful setting add up to a perfect evening. If you haven't tried Citrus Bistro, you're missing out on a true culinary experience."

  • "What a delightful find. Tucked away in Colleyville, this is a must do, must go and enjoy dining experience."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The restaurant has no frontage on 26 and is a bit hard to find--just look for "Next" restaurant and it is tucked back behind it. Once inside, the ambiance was great--very contemporary and had a cool vibe to it. The hostess (co-owner) greeted us and sat us at a table near the window/outdoor dining area. There was a fantastic soul singer (there on Friday nights) and it still wasn't loud at all. The food was superb! Incredible good seafood cooked to perfection. The hostess gave us her specially made dessert: date cake. It was the best dessert I've ever had! Highly recommend!!!"

  • "The greeting , seating and initial attention were great. The menu and wine list spoke of promise. There was one other table dining when we were seated and one table dining when we left. I was served an incorrect entree. It was sent back and action began to serve the correct dish. Surprisingly! The same dish was returned to me! It even had the bite missing that I had taken! Unacceptable! A slight accommodation was made to me. Upon my departure my waiter again asked if I had problems with the food or service. I was tempted to change his tip to $0.01 but figured I didn't need to say any more. I liked the attention upon my arrival, the ambiance and wine lists. My dining mishap makes me cautious about recommending this restaurant."

  • "It is worrisome when you go to a small neighborhood diner on one of the busiest days of the year. In this case, Mother's Day. A fixed menu helps, but the reviews tend to be poor due to lack of staff, etc. However, Citrus Bistro pulled it off. While our waiter was rushed, due to serving many more tables than normal, he was very nice and kept the Mimosa's flowing, always a plus! Meanwhile the food, all courses, was excellent. There were 4 of us and we each had different appetizers, entree's, and deserts. All of us raved about the quality and it was cooked to perfection. I thought the fish (sole) was delightful while the others reveled in their meals. We came away full, satisfied, and the two mothers in the group were very happy! Thanks! "

  • "We had a great time...Good for a special occasion and the food was very good. My only complaint would be the price seemed a bit high for a brunch. "

  • "We went to Citrus for Easter. There were 6 adults in our party. It was a fixed menu. 2 people had eggs benedict and they loved it. 2 had the chicken cordon blue and this dish was beyond awful. The"chicken" was a fried chicken patty with a slice of deli ham laying on top with a slice of provolone melted on top. The other 2 people had the sole with shrimp. It was a blob on the plate with sauce that had broken. Served with green beans that had been cooked to mush. I have been to Citrus on numerous occasions. It had always been excellent! Not sure what went wrong on Easter Sunday but it fell very short on their usual excellence. "

  • "We are foodies, who have eaten in good to great restaurants all over the world. Our biggest peeve: the paucity of fine dining in the Southlake/Keller/Colleyville area. We have been actively exploring, and pleasantly surprised by, new (to us) local places several times recently, but not blown away. We were expecting a similar experience from Citrus, with an unprepossessing facade, tucked well back from the street on Colleyville’s main drag, but the food was excellent, the service was exemplary (thanks, Antonio!), and the general attitude was warm and accommodating to an extraordinary degree. The wine list is heavy on granaches, but they complement the fish dishes nicely. The desserts (try the berries!) were amazing. Highly recommended!"

  • "always have good daily specials LOVE the date cake"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "When this restaurant moved from Royal Lane to Collyville, the North Dallas neighborhood went into mourning. I had the occasion to visit the new location and found nothing had changed. The fix cost dinner was excellent and reasonable. The food was perfect. The wine list was excellent including both value based and high end varieties. It is good to know that Citrus has maintained its uniqueness and quality. And finally, the date cake from an old family recipe remains the high point of the evening in an evening of superlatives. I will return even though it is a 45 minute drive."

  • "The restaurant is not exactly in the best place and I could see my wife kind of scoffing at the exterior, but once we made it inside, her expression and expectations totally changed. We had a musician playing near us, but it wasn't too loud. The food was delicious and drinks were relatively priced for that type of restaurant. Waitstaff was superb!"

  • "My wife and I really enjoyed Citrus Bistro. It is tucked in the back of a strip mall. Decor had a nautical theme, white tablecloths. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Food is outstanding. Menu has a lot of interesting items. Wine list with many interesting choices at reasonable prices. I had a truffle pate to start, which was fabulous. My entree was an Idaho Ruby trout with sriracha beurre blanc. Perfectly prepared and the sauce was inventive and very nicely complemented the fish. The surprising part of the evening was the entertainment, a very talented vocalist accompanying himself on keyboard that literally had the audience on their feet by the end of the evening. Overall, this is an awesome place!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Exceptional service - could not have been better... Food quality was outstanding from the start to finish. Salads are fresh and creative and the appetizers are delicious. Generous serving of fresh vegetables with every entree. If you are looking for a relaxing evening with great food - this neighborhood gem is a perfect pick!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Went for lunch. Hardly anyone was there so service was great. Food was outstanding. I had blackened sole with crawfish tails which was prepared very well. Cream of asparagus soup was pretty good. Other person at our table had the crab cake, which was also very nicely prepared. We will definitely be back."

  • "Wife and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary here and have nothing but good things to say about the service, food and ambiance. The owner (her husband is the chef) came to our table on several occasions to check on us.....all we could say was everything was great! Highly recommend."

  • "Wonderful menu options, great service and ambiance, but most importantly, great food. Hard to find....needs a sign curbside because it's set so far back from the road, and this Restaurant should not be overlooked."

  • "If you like seafood and/or French food, this is the place to go. My wife had the Bronzini, a type of fish, and it was delicious. The portions were geneous and it was cooked to perfection. The vegetables were also cooked just right. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it, too was delicious. The best treat of the night was the Date Cake. It's made with Dates and is very moist and light. I would recommend this dessert to anyone who enjoys eating."

  • "Family birthday celebration here was wonderful. The owners were warm and welcoming; she from Dubai and he from Normandy. The food was exceptional as was the service. We have not enjoyed fine dining of this caliber before In the Mid-Cities area. We hope everyone finds this place!"

  • "all 4 in our party had either the lobster bisque or she crab soup, and sadly none of us could detect ANY seafood in the bowls. this was especially disappointing at a seafood restaurant! our other disappointment was the difficulty conducting conversation because the musician's performance was very, very loud! this was our 2nd and last visit."

  • "We tried this restaurant on Valentines Day. We made reservations on Open Table so we did not know we were getting into a Price Fixe menu. We sat for over an hour before we had any of our food served. The waiter was not at all attentive, the owner and busboys served us. The tuna appetizer was very good, salads good, lobster bisque very thin, entrees ok, desserts good."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I do not usually right reviews and don't ever complain. I paid the bill without complaint, but my wife and I showed up on Valentines to discover that the dining room was overstuffed. We were literally in the conversations of the people around us (that might have been the highlight of the evening) The people on our left were there for over an hour before their order was taken. The ones on our right could not get refills of water. We received the third course of our meal almost two hours after we arrived, yet it was still before the second course. At over $100 a plate this was not acceptable. Had a good night with my wife, but the restaurant was a great disappointment. Would have been better off at Applebee's."

  • "Saw a review of the restaurant in the Fort Worth Star Telegram which noted the scallops, so decided to treat a scallop-loving friend to a birthday dinner there. Also tried some of the other items mentioned in the review. Both of us were delighted and pleased that the review did not stear us wrong. We were also impressed with our friendly, efficient waiter who was able to answer all our questions about menue items and did not seem bothered to have to educate us. All in all, it was a most pleasant experience and we have since recommended it to several freinds."

    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "I was totally impressed with the ambience of the restaurant. To go along with the excellent food you have service and personal one on one attention by the owners throughout the evening making certain your dining experience is exquisite. The reviews about the must have bundt cake were an understatement. It is worth every savory bite. I could go there just for the bundt cake. I was celebrating a friend's birthday and she was so excited about the rack of lamb she forgot to take a picture as she desired and tried to capture one after eating half the rack that was scrumptious."
