This is usually an interesting
place to eat. The only way I would go back is if I was guaranteed to be able to sit outside. It is romantic outside and far less noisy. I requested this but was sat inside. My girlfriend and I were greeted by three different servers and then our actual server arrived. He proved to be a capable server. He was not extremely attentive, but it was very busy. I would not recommend this place unless you can sit outside, or if you want to enjoy some drinks at the bar. It does have a nice bar scene, especially outside."

The food is prepared with great
care and knowledge. Service is wonderful, and wait staff is well versed on the foods and flavors as well as wine pairings. Noise levels are high in full service times and would be hard for hearing impaired people, or with large groups."

Citrus gets better all the time.
Now in its fourth year: better than ever!"

The tuna salad, tuna sandwich and
smoked salmon were light and refreshing dishes. The location on the beach was lovely. The staff is courteous and efficient. A special place to take visitors."

The printed lunch menu is short,
but when we visited there were several specials available. Food was very good, including desert. Unfortunately, you can only make reservations for indoor seating area."

Citrus Grillhouse is one of our
favorites, consistently good food and service!"

Chef went all out for Valentine's
Day and it paid off. Specials were extra special and even though it was busy there was no rush to finish."

My husband and I both ordered the
Mahi Mahi sandwich (from a limited menu) and it was excellent. For sides, we upgraded from chips to a mesclun salad and French fries that we shared. Also excellent. The weather was really chilly (by Vero standards) so we ate inside. A few hearty souls ate outside for the ocean view. Unfortunately, the door used to service these folks caused a cold draft upon opening. We were seated right by the door and quickly moved ourselves to a table further from the door with no difficulty. This restaurant is at its best when you can eat outside. The inside is lovely but tends to be noisy. But on a nice day, its really hard to beat the ocean view, the fish sandwich, and one of their tiny desserts."

Had a great meal and very good
service on Valentine's Day 2014. I highly recommend the scallops."

We were looking forward to dining
at Citrus Grillhouse. The noise level was not conducive to pleasant conversation. The salmon was too dry and the pork chop was too greasy. The service was very good. But, it was impossible to hold a conversation."
Dined on 2/12/2014
This restaurant is excellent
however the noise level is extremely high and I would not recommend it for anyone who has hearing difficulties."
Dined on 2/9/2014
The service and cordiality of
staff was overwhelmingly warm and efficient. The view (right on the beach) is amazing. Thesound level was perfect...it was basically the noise of the waves and not much else. But the food was very, very disappointing. Grocery store hamburger buns and bagged potato chips. Weak iced tea. Not much more than fast food, if that. We were lunching with friends from up north, so the scenery helped. However, I was embarrassed by the terrible food...not at all what is advertised on the Open Table site as the lunch menu. Would we go there again? Yes, for the view and a drink. No for the food!!"
Dined on 2/6/2014
Never disappoints -- offer some
good red wines by the glass at reasonable prices. Always fresh flavors -- one of our favorites when we are in Vero Beach"
Dined on 1/27/2014
So many tempting choices on the
menu, it was difficult to decide. Each of the four people in our party was extremely pleased with their entrees. We had grouper, lamb, duck, and snapper. The mini bites for dessert were wonderful and just enough to satisfy. This was our second time and it won't be our last. Service was attentive without being intrusive. From the moment we arrived all staff seemed dedicated to our enjoyment of the evening."
Dined on 1/19/2014
This was our first time at Citrus
and we thought it was fabulous. We had cocktails, some superb wine, and split several courses between my wife and myself. The wait staff was knowledgeable and informed. It's a bit noisy, but the food quality was very high. We dined during cool weather, so I can't speak to eating outside, but we'd definitely recommend this to anyone in the ocean side of Vero Beach."
Dined on 1/1/2014
We loved the creative menu, the
prompt and attentive service, the beautiful ocean setting, the elegant dining area, and the remarkable tangerine margarita!"
Dined on 1/15/2014
Citrus Grill was by far the
noisiest restaurant I have ever been to. Everything else was excellent but we had to yell at one another to carry on a conversation. I took my friends there for a Birthday get together.....disaster."
Dined on 1/14/2014
Right on the beach. Fantastic
ambiance with the ocean surf crashing nearby (if you sit on the veranda). Go on a moon-lit night! Food is excellent as was the service. Quite a good wine list."
Dined on 1/13/2014
Never disappointed! Always
delicious, creative cuisine with excellent, friendly service."
Dined on 1/8/2014
Great food, attentive service,
made our booking for inside but with a few minutes wait, were able to sit outside. Good choice, for inside was much colder and louder than outside. Celebrating a birthday, the dessert (a tasting of three "bites" - perfecto) was comped. A nice ending to a great evening."
Dined on 1/2/2014
While the food in general was
really good, the lobster mac and cheese (with a hint of citrus) was superb. Our group consisted of 6 people (including two children). Even on one of the busiest nights of the year, service was excellent."
Dined on 12/31/2013
I went for lunch and was
disappointed to find the menu consisted of about 3 salads and a half dozen sandwich items, none of the 3 course price fix items listed on the open table menu. I ordered a hamburger after verifying that it could be cooked medium rare only to find the patty so thin, it was impossible to cook it medium rare. I spent $12 on a thin burger and left the place hungry."
Dined on 12/27/2013
We love this place so much. A
small, quit, gorgeous oceanfront bistro in Vero Beach. What could go wrong? Nothing. The food is great, the prices, very reasonable. Service is low key, but excellent. We love: the Citrus Crab salad, the Wagyu skirt steak, any burger special is a must, the truffle fries, the Papardelle Shrimp is amazing too. Desserts are awesome, and they have smaller ones if you're eating healthy. Go!"
Dined on 12/26/2013
A beautiful night to eat outdoors
but diffident service. Main course inedible, too spicy without any warning and not as described on menu. Appetizer yummy paparadelle, but shared and no second plate offered.Wine service poor and inattentive. Dessert not brought as ordered . Whole experience disappointing. No one managing with care and attention."
Dined on 12/21/2013
Delicious gourmet food..especially
truffle Mac and cheese and gnache cupcake with bacon. Noise was way too loud...big table of rowdy group spoiled the experience."

A pleasant Thanksgiving evening

Great food, good service, nice
outdoor seating. Will return again soon."
Dined on 11/26/2013
Took some friends to Citrus; we
all loved the sophisticated and casual ambience. The skirt steak and risotto is a very good dinner choice. Sitting outside is a real treat especially on a night when the moon appears over the ocean. When in Vero or nearby, I highly suggest trying Citrus Grille you won't be disappointed."
Dined on 11/24/2013
Food excellent, service lacked
courtesy and politeness."

I had dinner last Thursday night
with old friends. From the service, to the ambiance, and amazing food, the enitre eveneing was exquisite. The dining room was intimate, comfortable and the lighteing was great. The service is flawless and the staff very knowledgable. The menu is creative, healthy and uses local high end suppliers. Every bite was better than the last. We also tried the tasting dessert menu in bite size protions that was beautiful to look at and even better to taste. I would highly reccomend the restaruant for any occasion. The Chef owned restaurant is truly a culinary treat. I live in South Florida and wish we had something like it here."

Returned here after a three month
hiatus and was just as pleased as last time. Food is filled with very fresh ingredients - staff just fine and wine list interesting and agreeable. Would recommend to anyone"

Great food and a staff that is
really attentive to your needs. The fixed price menu is a great deal."

On the Beach at Vero. Dinning and
bar outside, solid service, lovely food. We did it the Italian way, split three courses: Tomato and Matz, truffle paste special, and super Scottish Salmon. All tasty!"
Dined on 10/22/2013
Outstanding food, service and an
outstanding view of the Atlantic ocean."
Dined on 10/20/2013
Typical ocean-front location, with
nice interior layout (could not get seated on the outdoor deck); a bit concerned about noise level and what appeared to be a shortage of servers. But the food turned out to be so excellent (way beyond what I expected) that it made up for a lag in service! Get there before sunset and take a stroll on the beach park before your dinner reservation."
Dined on 10/14/2013
We had guests in town and decided
to try the Citrus Grill summer Pre Fixe menu. The food was delicious and service was outstanding. Our waiter also recommended a wine that we all enjoyed."
Dined on 10/9/2013
Wish they would take reservations
for the outdoor dining area. Prix fixe dinner was amazing and an incredible value."
Dined on 10/13/2013
Attentive and curtious staff. Food
was amazing. Not a lot of selection, but very good choices and variety. Good wine list. Awesome dessert! Will definitly go back."

We spent our anniversary at Citrus
and it could not have been more perfect. The ambiance of Citrus in the evening is wonderful. The sound of the ocean, the palm trees swaying and the ocean breeze accompanied the amazing taste of the food with perfection. We were greeted with a champagne toast as well as an after dinner drink and desert with their compliments in celebration of our anniversary. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The food is amazing, I especially enjoy the pappadelli with rock shrimp although we have sampled quite a few items on the menu and always enjoy. You have a choice of half or full portions which is very nice option if you just want to have some drinks, appetizers and enjoy the view. One of our favorite places!"

Restaurant had a glitch in their
computer system and service was reportedly slower than normal."
