Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Citrus Bistro was the perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary away from the Spring Breaker crowds. We found the place delightful, the food exquisite and the prices just right. We will make Citrus Bistro our regular spot for Sunday Brunch!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "We have been several times with friends - always enjoy both food and the entertainment especially on Fridays with W.T at the piano and it is wonderful to enjoy this great place in our mid-cities neighborhood."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "WE had a wonderful Sunday Brunch with friends - food was excellent, service great - this is a really good restaurant for the area! You don't have to drive to Fort Worth for exceptional food and service!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The food and service were outstanding - server was knowledgeable - the presentation was beautiful - all in all a lovely evening. The background music became a little too loud but was a nice addition - a little slow on delivering first drinks - butter when delivered to table could be softer"

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. The service was fantastic - the ambience was great - and the food was fabulous. An absolute MUST is the date cake for dessert. It is literally to die for!"

  • "Beautifully presented, delicious food. Attentive wait staff. Pleasant surroundings. Can't wait to sit outside! Date cake is a real hit!"

  • "Service and ambience were great, but food was just fair. Of the 5 people dining only two were pleased with their choices. The tuna was so stringy it was inedible and was sent back twice."

  • "We had lunch, party of 8, at Citrus. Everyone raved over there selection!! Food is fresh, nice portion size, and beautifully plated. Trie the Brie soup. It is delicious!"
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "Service was excellent. The escargot were so delicious they melted in your mouth. The she-crab soup was a hit. The house salad with the Citrius dressing was light and flavorful. We ordered the trout and crab cakes for entrees. Yummy. The best ever was the date cake. I had never had date cake and do not know how I missed out on such a treat all these years. Be sure to save room for dessert. The choices looked awesome."

  • "Superior food and service in the mid-cities. Encourage everyone to visit as this is a rare find! Fabulous wine list that pairs well with their menu. The sole is an experience. We've been three times for Sunday brunch, but this was our first time for dinner and we were just as impressed."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "On our third visit, the food continued to be outstanding and is definitely the highlight. This was New Year's Eve and a price fixe menu which, at $85 per person, was a bit high. However, I would have gladly paid that for the food if the service had been decent. It was busy so we expected things to be slow but not for the wait staff to be snobbish and borderline rude. When we asked a question about a menu item, they acted as if we should know and then gave an explanation that provided no insight into the dish. To do a hand wave and say it is outstanding does not explain specifically to a customer what to expect. The service was good on our first trip but has deteriorated significantly in subsequent visits."

  • "My family and I have eaten here twice and the food, ambience and service are impeccable. Connor has been our waiter and his deft service skills did not go unrecognized. The brie soup nearly put me in "briehab" - it was that good! The watermelon salad is divine and at our most recent outing, the monk fish was done to perfection as was my father's pork chop. If you are looking for a little jewel of a french bistro in the heart of Colleyville, look no further - this place shines like a diamond!"
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "Given the reviews in the newspaper and the inflated prices, I had high hopes for this one. We were greeted warmly and escorted to a nicely set table. The Brie soup had very good flavor but the stuffed shrimp tasted like something frozen from Sam's Club. My niece enjoyed her fish dinner and I was wishing I had ordered the same. Very disappointing! We shared the date cake for dessert and while it was ok, it didn't live up to it's build up either. Probably won't go back."

  • "In the bedroom community of Colleyville, Texas is a mid-cities gem of a French restaurant. From the salmon gallantine to the midori duck to the date cake, the food is uniformly excellent presented in an appealing plate display. The wine list ranges from the moderate to the expensive and contains numerous bottles of French wines at reasonable prices as well as a full range of the normally available California wines. Especially notable on our last visit was the mixed seafood en croute appetizer and the garganzola encrusted beef tenderloin. The date cake for dessert is a "cannot miss." It sounds heavy and ponderous, but is as light as a feather with a superb anglaise sauce to accompany. Service is prompt and friendly but unobtrusive."

  • "The food was absolutely fantastic! I rarely clean my plate, but I did so for their lobster bisque and the cajun crab cake fireball (I think that's what it's called). And, if you get a chance, meet the owners, Jean Loup and Didier--they couldn't be more welcoming and caring. I highly recommend Citrus Bistro!"
