Food is ok. Ordered pasta with clams and had to request a bowl for the shells and for Parmesan cheese.
We have been to Citrine every couple months since we moved to Oak Park last year. It has always been a fun atmosphere with great food. I highly recommend the mushroom ravioli. The cocktails are also very well made.
Best carpaccio anywhere!
Wide menu. Great salads. I had the fish special that was fine but not spectacular.
Mother’s Day Dinner was a delightful experience. The food was excellent and the staff was extremely attentive and efficient. Great experience.
We had a very nice mother’s day brunch at Citrine! Service was great, food came fast (we have kids!) and all the dishes were yummy. My only criticism is that I wanted a latte or cappuccino but the only kind of milk available is while milk! I would think the restaurant would at least offer one non-dairy alternative, especially for being in Oak Park. I would like to see lemons or coconut milk added to menu. Thanks
I have been to Citrine numerous times. It has never disappointed! Food is amazing! There are always enticing specials available. Everything is excellent- from wine selection to apps to mains to dessert! Wait staff have always been excellent. It is definitely a gem in Oak Park.
Outstanding food, cocktails, service and atmosphere. Do not miss and opportunity to try Citrine Cafe!
Great food, great drinks, and an even better ambiance. Will come back time and time again.
Menu was great, and we noticed some Monday specials we hope to return for.
Excellent selection of wine
Citrine has a moderate size menu but the dishes are well prepared. It is always better to have fewer dishes well done than a lot of items done in a slipshod manner. Service is attentive, the room is airy and the tables have good spacing between them. I am not a fan of giant TV's tuned to sports events but at least the sound was off. My delicious salad was almost an entree in itself and could have fed two. The honey roasted pork shank was fall off the bone tender and delicious. The sautéed spinach sensitively prepared but the polenta was not smooth and creamy, more like thick and lumpy. My husband had
the halibut special and was very happy with it. He is a very critical fish lover so if he was happy it was very good. We also had two appetizers for the table (shrimp and grits and harissa lamb sausage) that everyone in our party enjoyed. We were too full for dessert so we cannot comment on that but we would recommend the restaurant to those who want a local experience that matches downtown in quality and also price. It is not an inexpensive evening to dine at Citrine.
Very friendly and attentive staff. Made good wine and food recommendations. We loved everything, esp. octopus, Korean Fried Cauliflower, and dessert. An unexpected and nice glass of port was given to us with our dessert. Elegant and fun.
Well crafted cocktails
Fantastic food, awesome friendly staff! Great dinner for our first night in the windy city!!
Nice atmosphere, attentive service, quiet tables where the hearing impaired can talk and hear. However, the chorizo egg dish came with NO CHORIZO. When my husband pointed this out, it was quickly remedied. Maybe an oversight?
The food was very good in quality, but on the expensive side. Service was outstanding, however.
Outstanding meal! All four of us agreed that it was wonderful. Food and service were spectacular. I love it when the owner comes by and shakes hands. Don't you?
Somewhat limited menu, but every item thoughtfully prepared with a unique take.
Our server, Aleskandra and the owner sent over after dinner nite caps. Such a nice touch.
'Will go back again & again!
Good food and drinks, but steer clear of the desserts. The baklava was absolutely terrible, and the bread pudding was over-baked. The location is very nice, lots of people watching.
Excellent service very friendly attentive to children variety of specialty cocktails
Loved and will return as often as we can!
Food was good but not outstanding. Service was inconsistent. Nothing terrible to complain about but nothing great to rave about. Desserts were delicious.
we experienced a wonderful evening with cocktails, apps wine dinner, dessert. after dinner drinks. Our wait staff was excellent never rushed us or was intrusive, We were entertaining clients and it was very pleasant evening for all.
The staff at Citrine was extremely accommodating, very attentive and mindful. I am looking forward to bringing back my family and dining there again in the future.
Beautiful plsce! Great good! Service was good! The ambience was comfy and quant! Coming back!
My server was awesome and had some good recommendations. I ordered the mussels for an appetizer, and they were phenomenal. So was the pork shank entree I ordered. I went in at 4:30 when they opened and it wasn’t busy at all. Great experience! I’ll be back.
Food was Amazing! music was Awesome! Great service!
Service is excellent. The food was well prepared, especially the avocado toast. The blueberry pancakes were good, but lacked blueberries.
Great time and delicious food!
We always love Citrine! Great setting and always delicious food.
Food was fantastic and the wait staff impeccable. We will definitely be back.
The food was outstanding as usual. We love eating here. Our server tonight was boderline poor. Not sure if just inexperienced or in the weeds (not really busy tonight) or just a bad server. Poor timing of our meal, forgot coffee, (20 min) no offer of another drink for my wife, than 25 min from clearing plate to getting check. On top of that, brought 2 tiny samples of cheesecake to the table after we had asked for no cheese for me. Everyone has an off night, yet this was just poor. Our attendant/busser was spot on. Of course, we will return, but will avoid this server.
Food was excellent tasting. Portions were very small. Service was slow which there was really no excuse as when we first got there there was nobody there.
It was just ok
No parking not easy to find
Food was just ok
Citrine never disappoints. I love this restaurant.
A classy yet casual restaurant. Adds greatly to the selection of restaurant offerings in Oak Park.
Splendid in every way! Love the staff, love the food, love the place. Winner every time <3
I had dinner here with my wife & daughter on a Saturday night. We had a reservation but didn't need it since we ate early. The food was very good. We had the Half Amish chicken, Great Lakes whitefish & the Hangar steak dishes. They were all very good.
My daughter is gluten-free and they don't have a GF menu. However, the server was able to tell us which plates could be made GF-and there was a very good choice from the menu.
The prices were a little high for the entrees. The drink prices were about right for the area.
I would go back again.
We dine at Citrine quite often as we live nearby. The service is always wonderful and the staff friendly. On this occasion they were very accommodating with moving over reservation around. The food is tasty and the atmosphere warm. As with many restaurants it is noisy during prime dining hours.
