Citico is a fabulous place to take friends for a special occasion. I introduced some newcomers to the area who were so impressed they made reservations that evening to entertain out-of-town guests of their own in a few weeks. Even with a full room, conversation was easily quiet. Thank you to the chef and the excellent staff.
I was disappointed from the beginning as I was told they were out of the good olives for my martini’s that were probably 15$ each. Then following on that I was let down by the brussel sprouts which have changed recipe since the last time I was there (signature side dish, not sure why one would change). Lastly, the final let down came when I was informed that the torch for the creme brulee was not working. I rarely provide feedback on my dining experience but felt compelled this time around as my bill was 250$ for my wife and I (including tip). I would’ve had no issue paying that price if the experience could have been had without the setbacks outlined above.
Always a great dinner. Knowledgeable of wines and great food as well as pairing the 2. A wonderful time.
Pleasanrt atmosphere. Great food. Great service. Thanks Colin.
We could not ask for a better dining experience. Very professional clean great food and staff. They even accommodated us surprising my daughter. Her now fiancé proposed to her, Chef Robert Allen and there head waiter help in making this all happen. Thank you so much,
It was a forgettable experience.
Date night with spouse
Ashley was the best! Excellent service,
Food was awesome
Definitely will be back
Our first time to dine at Citico’s and it was a great Valentine treat. Beautiful “home” atmosphere on the water. Loved sitting by the window and watching the sun go down. The food and service were great.
Terrific dining experience.
Our server needs more training for upscale dining. She was polite and efficient, however, it was obvious that does not have experience with a restaurant of Citico’s caliber. Our past experiences with Citico delivered the level of service we expected of a restaurant of this quality.
Chef Allen and his staff are masters of their trade, food was excellent and service was impeccable. Will defiantly be back many times!
Chef Robert does a great job and Jamie was an outstanding waitress!
This was our first visit to Citico's. We found the food to be extremely delicious. The crab bisque was out
of this world. My filet was very tender and cooked to perfection. I am glad I had a GPS to guide me there as it was dark and would have been hard to find without it.
Not impressed. The Food was ok. Selection was very slim. Took 55 mins to get our food. Food was ok. The Chef was very nice and presented himself well. I believe he needs more room to spread his wings and highlight his craft. A house turned into a restaurant is not the place for fine dining in my opinion. I believe the idea of a high class dining experience at Citico’s could be a success with the current Chef just a different venue.
We love Citico’s!!! The menu, the quality of food, the service, the atmosphere, the view...all impeccable!!
Wonderful restaurant with attentive staff. Recommend for dinner and brunch is fantastic!
This restaurant is defined as fine dining, however I think our meal missed the mark. The steak strip was delicious, however the pork loin was cooked well done and under seasoned, too overdone for my taste. The cassoulet did not have a stew texture, most commonly seen with a cassoulet, but overly dry. The Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was very good. It was a slow night, and we were the last reservation (8pm) on a Saturday evening. We felt exceptionally rushed by our server, to which she started turning off the lights all around us as we finished our meal, making us feel to swiftly finish our meal. To be described as fine dining, I would have expected the utmost service, which entails anticipated needs, including bread refresh, water refresh, and such. My bread plate was taken before I was even done with my bread. There are too many good restaurants in the Knoxville and the Maryville area for us to come back. I was hoping for something memorable. Unfortunately I was disappointed.
Superb dining experience. Excellent atmosphere, fantastic waitress, great wine and wonderful food. It just doesn't get much better.
We entertained friends for Sunday Brunch.
Highly recommend the Gouda Grits and the Omlettes as well as the Fried Chicken.
Great service and Ambiance .
Miss the pool table and seating area in the downstairs bar area .
Very nice brunch with nice selection and appropriate portioning. One dish was too salty. They apologized and replaced it. Will try them for dinner sometime.
We save Citico’s for special occasions. The food and service always add to the evening. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the scallops were super. The wine list is also complete and offers a variety of choices.
Everything was delicious. very creative brunch, and excellent value. My only complaint was that some (vegetables, and mac and cheese) were not hot at all.: not even warm.
Go for the smoked Gouda grits....awesome!
Was so excited to finally have bruncg here!
Terrible food. Dry Chicken, tough Prime Rib, cold Mac & Cheese & watery Biscuit Gravy. Waffle could have broke a window it was so hard.
Very poor selection and quality.
Service & Bloody Mary were great.
Again, excellent food and service in a beautiful setting. We were celebrating a birthday, and this was the restaurant suggested by the honoree. Thanks for everything.
We will be back! Everyone was so kind and welcoming. We really thought it was wonderful how the chef came out and spoke to us about our meal! Food was fantastic!! The restaurant itself is so beautiful! Can’t wait to come back!
Sarah was our bartender & server and always does a fantastic job! Colin is the sommelier and always has great suggestions. The salmon & grits were amazing and the carrot cake was to die for!
Outstanding! Our first time dining out for Thanksgiving and we went to brunch at Citico's - what an incredible experience. The food tasted like being at home. It was all there except for crazy Eddy!
My wife and I have been there before and had an equally incredible dinner experience.
If you haven't been, you're missing out.
Very lovely venue in a beautiful home-like setting. Fine dining to say the least! Expertly prepared food by energetic chef:)
Outstanding food and service. Absolutely beautiful setting for dinner and quiet conversation. Food selection was unique, tastefully presented, plentiful and delicious. Our third time taking guests for dinner and each time they were very impressed with everything at Citico. Would highly recommend Citico's for a delightful evening for premier dining.
Wonderful Brunch! Really restaurant!
Incredible quality and Great value .Service was as high quality as the food itself.
This has always been an exquisite establishment with excellent food, individualized service attention, and atmosphere.
Absolutely perfect. We put in a special request when we made our reservation and not only did Chef Allen accommodate us, he personally came to our table to explain the additions and changes.
The service and food is spectacular, and the views of the lake and mountains just send this place over the top.
service was good but the food was a disapointment. Bacon way over done,poor dessert offering,omlets were quite small and lacking requested filling.
Enjoyed a delicious dinner with my wife on Saturday evening. The food, service and view were outstanding.
Great experience! First class setting and outstanding food.
We all enjoyed our brunch. Service was very god and it is a very beautiful setting.
My wife and I are new to the area and were looking for something that was above the norm. We were very pleased to see the how the restaurant was nesseld in a golf course community right on Tellico lake. The scenery was loveley and first impressions were wonderful. We were well received and as we arrived early it was recommended that the bar area might be a comfortable place to wait. It was beyond comfortable and we enjoyed a favorite beverage with some very friendly patrons. Once the table was ready we were shown to the dinning room and seated with a wonderful view of the lake. We started with a small plate of the chiefs signature Brussels sprouts, they were amazing. The wine list was disappointing as two wines we requested were out of stock. We both made a beef selection and the tenderloin ordered rear came out well and the ribeye was chewy and failed to even appear like a ribeye, I felt it looked more on the order of a sirloin. (Not happy there) over all the restaurant was nice and we will give it a second chance the staff is pleasant and the manager Mark was most helpful and took our concerns constructively.
Nice experience. Excellent food and special service. A little pricey. Will comeback but only on special occasion.
