Service excellent and food very good.
Great cocktails - food portions moderate (which is good) - a little pricey, but worth it
Great food. Great evening. We will definately go back.
Great post pandemic dinner on their patio. Service was super.
Simon is a fantastic waiter who took great care of our group. Had good food, cocktails and wine on a beautiful evening on the patio outdoors
We had an amazing time at Citrine, the weather was perfect so we grabbed a table outside. They happen to carry my favorite wine, Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina Rubentis Rose 2020! I can't wait to go again.
Good food. Good service
Brunch menu isn't as innovative as the regular menu.
Celebrated High School Graduation. Party of 4. Had an outside reservation but it was quite cool & breezy. Although a very busy night, they did find us an inside booth. Food was very tasty. Husband had the Whitefish. I enjoyed the Mushroom Ravioli. One daughter had the pizza And the other loved the Amish chicken. I had the specialty Watermelon cocktail with edible flower. Quite good & ate the flower! 2 servings of Carrot Cake & 1 Chocolate Molten cake capped off the meal. The restaurant was busy but the service was exceptionally slow. Waiter would disappear for long periods. Said he’s bring dessert menus then returned but remembered he forgot them. Bus service was good however keeping table cleared & water filled.
Always a great experience at Citrine. One of our favorites in Oak Park.
Great food and service. Great wine pairing suggestions. Specials were phenomenal.
My meal was fantastic and the dessert was divine. It was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary!
One of our favorite restaurants.. great service, delicious food, charming place. So glad to be back to dining again!
Drinks were decent, Benedict was bland and basic with a long hair in it.
Service was a little slow. I should have asked more questions about the fish special too as it had bones in it.
First outing with friend post-COVID
Food and service were absolutely amazing!
Absolutely great! Amazing service and delicious food.
Great spot for anniversary.
Drink service was very slow. We received our drinks after our food and the refills were slow as well. We had planned on sticking around longer for drinks in the beautiful sunny weather with outdoor seating, but opted to get our check and leave after waiting 10-15 minutes for our last drink when we had been done eating and sat waiting longer than expected.
The food was okay, but not as good as expected. The English muffin for my benedict was very thick and a breadiness took over this dish. I cut off some excess around the edges but the thickness and texture was still overwhelming. My wife got the shrimp and grits, which was a very small dish and came with hardly any grits.
We also ordered the biscuits and asked for them to come out first as an appetizer, but these came out with the rest of our food. The biscuits were small and they were not warm when served. I was expecting some nice biscuits for a $9 side order that is mostly bread. The jam and lemon curd that came with these were good. It’s just a shame they didn’t come with better biscuits.
The highlight of our dining experience was the Clever Disguise cocktail, which would have been even more fantastic if we didn’t have to wait so long for it. The food and service were not what I had come to expect from Citrine.
Always delicious and the owner and his family are super friendly.
Execellent white bass & sword fish entree. Friendly staff and good value
Great place, great food, service was awesome! I recommend.
Great food and drinks !!! And amazing service!!! Can’t wait to go back!
Despite a busy booking day, was not overcrowded and we felt comfortable indoors. Service was excellent and the food was as well. Our first family return to indoor dining!
Our go to place when we feel like a dinner-date sans child. Very satisfying!
Korean cauliflower was amazing!!!
The food and service at Citrine never disappoint! Love having Citrine in Oak Park.
Citrine never disappoints. The food is great and is complimented by great service.
Great service and atmosphere. A manager (maybe the owner?) walked around checking in on customers. It’s a little pricey but not outrageous. I’d go again! They have great gluten free options. It’s a good date night spot.
One of our favorite spots for delicious food and outdoor dining in the area!
We had an absolutely lovely outing on the side patio. Good food and drinks!
The food at brunch was delicious, and the service was awesome! Will definitely be going again to try more things.
Grace, thank you so much for the review! We're so glad that you enjoyed the food and service at Sunday Brunch! We look forward to having you back again soon! Best, The Team at Citrine Café
The food from wedge salad to charred octopus was delicious. Tried wood fired pizza and ravioli for entree. The sides of Korean cauliflower and Brussels sprouts were in point. Knowing that we had a birthday a free cake was offered. All I all an excellent outdoor dinner outing.
This is the kind of place that warms your heart. It makes you glad they still exist and are thriving after CoVid. The owner and employees care about the customers. It shows through in every way possible.
Thank you so much for the review, we truly appreciate it! We are so happy to be welcoming back our wonderful guests, such as yourself! Best, The Team at Citrine Café
Amazing spot! Great service and delicious food! Definitely coming back soon! Highly recommend!
Delicious raviolis and eggplant. Loved the cocktails and decor. Waitstaff was a little flat.
Amazing cocktails, food was delicious. Service knowledgeable and prompt even tho they were extremely busy. There was not a glass of wine or bottle of wine that I wanted to order on the menu to my liking: but the cocktails were delicious.
Service was awesome. Very attentive. We felt like we were guests at someone’s house for dinner. Food was great too.
The food was excellent and the service was great. A long trip to get there, but it was worth it.
