They night we went there was only a buffet option. We did not know until we got to the restaurant. My husband and I are not big buffet fans. Minimal options but some items were good.

While still a good place to go for brunch, Citron is not what it use to be (when JW Marriott first opened). Back then it offered an abundance of fine food choices - including more namesake French-related foods and pastries. Now it's been pared back to more usual 'standard' brunch fare. It's still a bright cheery setting with quality food. Seems JW is unsure what to do with the restaurant and its theme. The hotel has opened other onsite restaurants which may be the less attention to Citron.

Little too pricey for children. Great otherwise.

Great pastries, love the cantaloupe juice. Some of the hot foods were not hot. Good omelett.

Waiter not very attentive. We were told the chef would come to our table to tell us about food allergies - never came. Had to guess at what foods would be okay for me to eat & no desserts were ones I could eat. Very disappointing. Expensive to eat and not very accommodating. Will not eat there again nor recommend to anyone with a food allergy of any kind or on any kind of food plan.

Enjoyed our breakfast here... small menu and a buffet with a bunch of stuff. Convenient if you're a hotel guest. Service was excellent. My eggs and items from the buffet were all very good. More "every day" than the breakfast venue across the way at the Ritz, so you have a choice. This room is also much larger than Highball and Harvest at the Ritz.

It has changed for bad. It use to be really good food, upscale place to go with family or friends.
Not anymore.

My family and I absolutely love this place! Citron has been the family gathering spot for Thanksgiving every year since 2008 when we are all in Florida. The spread of food, expertly prepared, is off the charts. It's a phenomenal restaurant inside a spectacular hotel. You will not be disappointed!

My wife and I went to Sunday brunch at Citron. The waiter took our drink order, asked if we were getting the buffet. When he brought the drinks back to the table I indicated my wife wanted the buffet but I hadn't decided yet. He never checked back on us the entire meal. We both were out of drinks and I had wanted to order off the menu , but was never given the chance, because he did not ever come back to the table. After about 25 minutes of waiting , I told my wife to go ahead and eat and I would get get something on the way home. Would not recommend.

Slow service. Mediocre food. What'd you expect from a Marriott.

there for lunch: onion soup was bland, caesar salad with salmon was bland, water tasted like there was ammonia in it so asked for it to be switched... disappointed since this is usually a good breakfast place.

The menu and food would suggest an upscale dinning experience, but the number of young children unaccustomed to proper restaurant behavior made for a very unpleasant atmosphere. There were plenty of available tables in this large revenue, but the hostess kept seating families with young children around us.
Apparently, this is a great restaurant for kids, but not if you want a quiet dinner without distractions.

Came to Ritz to celebrate anniversary and chose Citron as said was smart casual and American food good for special occassions. Thought would be a less formal but nice restaurant; it wasn't. It was super casual, not romantic at all. The food was okay but nothing special. Should not sell itself as anything more than the casual family hotel restaurant. For that it's fine, though a bit overpriced. If want a cool atmosphere and great food for less go to the Whisper Creek Kitchen onsite.

We had higher expectations for the restaurant given its location in the JW Marriott. Our server was great and the food quality was good but we were missing items on our dishes and there was no bread served because the kitchen didn't want to bring any more in. This wasn't so much about the bread but rather that it was a thursday night in season at 8:30 so you would expect standards to be met. On top of this they were offering a buffet option that had bread available but was only available if you paid for the buffet option. The menus were fairly limited as well and the experience as a whole wasn't what we were hoping for. It was an anniversary dinner and we expected better from a restaurant associated with a JW.

the picture you posted of the food was more elegant that it really was. I went to Normans last year an loved it but they were not open for lunch so I decided to try Citron. Food was ok. I think the menu because it had sandwiches didn't make it. I could have a turkey sandwich anywhere!

As part of a conference organized a business meeting for breakfast. All was well until a family of 6 (4 infants) sat down next to us. Surprised to see this at 7am with so many other tables to choose from on a Thu morning

Also had two business lunches but regretfully had to locate our waiter to place a food order for one (second lunch - outside seating on Wed)

Earlier business lunch - no issues - (first lunch on Tue)

Actually - one other lunch - shortened session - was ver good. Here your waiter went out if his way to assist (Thu lunch)

It is expensive, but what you would expect from a resort. Food was great, service was good.
