Nice, quiet dinner
I was alone on business when I chose to eat here. It was late and I didn't feel like walking anywhere. Sat outside and had a lovely dinner. Food was excellent, service was great and the evening was cool for Texas. Nice place.

Perfect anytime Downtown Spot
Ahh, 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!

Great food and service
Food 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.

Fresh, 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.

My 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

Great place for a nice dinner
We 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.

Perfect business lunch spot
After 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.

Great food, great experence!
We dined at Citrus before the theatre. Our group of seven had a wonderful dining experience. Everything from the cocktails to the dessert was excellent. Service was very attentive but not obtrusive. Wine list was comprehensive. Completely enjoyed our experience.

Nice Ambiance & Service /Good Food
Overall, we had a very nice experience. It was a cozy, quiet place where we could actually talk. They also did not seat other parties right next to us, which we always appreciate. The waiter was very good and attentive; however, he did not interrupt us every 5 minutes.We ordered the 3 course meal for $50/pp. The crabcake was tasty but not crabby enough for me (more breading); however, my husband really liked it. His antelope was very flavorful but oddly enough was a mix of very tender and tough depending on thickness. I had the Bronzini fish dish, on the recommendation of the waiter, and it had excellent flavor. The hot bread served early in the meal was excellent; We only wish we had not eaten the entire basket before the meal.

Tops at Citrus
I love traveling to San Antonio, no let me start again, I love San Antonio, there are always great finds for bars and restaurants. Citrus is one of those places. It is on the riverwalk but a story up in a nice hotel, too many people have missed this excellant eatery. The wine list was goo dand prices were very fair, menu was great three or four courses or a le cart. Swervie and food was impeccable. Will be back, please come and check it out you will be impressed!

We went for desserts/drinks only, and they were so great. The bread pudding was sooo good, with a bourbon caramel sauce that just made it. The chocolate cake was also excellent.
7/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
The service, food and staff are all top nice. It's an unexpected gem. I just assumed that it would be a regular hotel restaurant, however I was pleasantly surprised by everything. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Very nice place to eat, great view
This is a great place to eat and it has a wonderful and quiet view of the river.

We went to this restaurant
We went to this restaurant two nights in a row and everything tasted great the first night but the same menu items were not as good the second night. I can't explain this unless they had a different cook or more time to prepare. Still this is one of my favorite places.

The chef and wait staff helped to make our wedding anniversary celebration very special. The service was great and the food was even better. They even decorated our desert plate in honor of our anniversary. The service was great and the food was even better. The crispy shrimp and scallop appetizers were fantastic. The pork tenderloin and pecan crusted red snapper were to die for. The sorbet was a nice cap to the dinner.

I was pleasantly surprised with the dining experience I had at Citrus. I started with the scallops in carrot aus jus. They were some of the best scallops I have ever eaten and cooked to perfection. The main course, red snapper with a caramel pecan sauce seemed risky at first. I was hoping it was not too sweet, and it wasn't. The fish and skin was extremely crispy. Excellent. Finishing the meal with the hazelnut cheesecake was not disappointing either. Compared to any other dining experience I have had on the riverwalk, there is NO comparison. I will definitely be going back.

Ram was our fabulous waiter!!! he was awesome ... we had the crab cakes and scallops and wine, the crab cakes and scallops were great, kinda liked the scallops better than the crab cakes, but both were excellent. I was disappointed that there was not an extensive wine list for such a fine restaurant and that would be my only complaint. Thank you Ram for such impecable service!!!

Decided to make our reservation so we could finally get in a Dinner before attending Majestic Theater Performance and from a Food standpoint certainly not disappointed. However, chose the 3 course prix-fixe option which was outstanding since we had 2 options for 1st 2 courses and my friend and I each took the opposite so we could try them both. Dessert was a great Bread Pudding alamode. 1st Course was a Wonderful Butternut Squash soup or Salad w/Beets and mixed Greens, both nice (the soup the best choice!). Hereafter, our service problem-Entrees did not arrive in a timely manner at all so had to rush rest of meal which took away from the enjoyment of what should have been excellent dining experience!

First time and impressed!
Went to Citrus for the first time before going to a show at the majestic. We opted for the theatre menu because we were trying to get to the show. We considered having on of the regular tasting menus but decided against it when our server told us that would probably take 2-2.5 hours to get through! All of the food was delicious and we both left so full we could barely walk. Only downside was how hard the actual resturant is to find (mainly because I have never been in the Valencia before) we had to ask three people before someone lead us up the correct stairs and around the right corners. Overall good experience and I would probably go back for a special occasion because it was a bit pricey.

The ambiance here was fantastic. Very nice waterfalls, design and placement of seating throughout, and music. Notably, I enjoyed the music a lot because they were all my favorite songs/artists. I asked an employee and he said it was a playlist hand selected by the staff. I appreciated that. The food was delicious and portions were decent but not fit for someone looking to take some home. The food here is elegant and perfectly portioned (I had 3 courses and didn't feel like I wobbled on my way back to my hotel.) FYI, I dined here during non-peak hours and I was told there a bit more bustle during peak hours. Also, don't looked for the sign for the restaurant outside. Just walk into the hotel and go upstairs.

Great for a business lunch
I met up with a business colleague for lunch. It was a perfect Fall day so we sat on the open veranda by the San Antonio Riverwalk. The tables are far apart enough to discuss business issues comfortably. It was really nice to be greeted by name on arrival because I had made my reservation through OpenTable. They have a very nice menu but we both opted for the made-to-order paella bar. The salads were fresh and crisp and delicious. I will definitely return.

Above average for Hotel dinning
The food was great and the service was ok. They could punch up the wine list.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delightful dining experience on the Riverwalk. Excellent presentations. Fish and steak cooked perfectly. Wait staff very attentive. Complementary valet parking and just a few doors from the Majestic Theater made our evening of Broadway wonderful.

I was really looking for a place that everyone would like when I found Citrus on a food reviews website. Most of the reviews were positive so I decided to book brunch reservations. This place was fantastic!! They offered a breakfast buffet as well as menu items. I had the chicken and waffles and they tasted perfect! The price was also well moderated and not too pricey! We sat outside on the patio overlooking the riverwalk while we ate. I wish I could have this experience every morning!! Great place!

Excellent food, nice outdoor patio
Delicious food, lovely presentation, quiet ambience, with low rumble of patrons on the patio of a restaurant below and 50m away. Good service - just the right amount of attentiveness.
