Reservations are highly recommended, and our outside seating is also always first come-first serve.
Very disappointing was there a few years ago and it was much much better . Do not think that will be back . Shame it has changed .
Food was wonderful but very disappointed they didn’t have the Quilt Cabernet. Wine recommended in its place was not comparable.
Nice place but I'm not sure I'd go back. My husband ordered the evening special..Branzino and he said it was overcooked. My scallops were good, salads were just ok. They took our fork and knife after eating our salads and I had to go up to the bar to get another for us when our main course was served.
Food was good but felt it was over priced. I ordered a scallop dinner and i only got 3 scallops and no vegetables.
Always a lovely dinner at Citrus!
A very disappointing dinner
We were looking forward to our first visit to Citrus. The restaurant is located in Vero Beach on the North Hutchinson Island portion of A1A. We could hear the waves as we approached the entrance. The dining room is pleasant and reasonably well appointed. There is a busy kitchen that you can see from pretty much everywhere in the restaurant. Lots of cooks, waiters and other people busy attending to patrons. Once we had taken stock of our surroundings, we started perusing the menu. The menu itself is not very surprising, except maybe for the prices. There is a little bit of variety but nothing truly original. The wine list is ordinary though on the expensive side. We started by sharing an appetizer special made of mushrooms with a brandy sauce and goat cheese. The portion was meager. My wife then had a the Citrus Risotto which was just plain rice with a couple of slices of fruits; very underwhelming. I had the ahi tuna, served seared. The fish was properly cooked, the dish reasonably tasty but the portion also meager, especially considering the $44 price. We followed with a key lime pie that was so small that we thought it was a joke. It was not. The check was no joke either; you can have a mediocre dinner at Citrus for $80 per person, and this with just a couple of glasses of the most basic wine on the menu (this includes gratuity). To say it is not good value is an understatement. But then we were not looking for value; this was my wife’s birthday as I had mentioned at the time of the reservation and as the hostess confirmed after seating us. That was the only reference to the birthday all night long! So we paid $160 for a rather ordinary meal we did not enjoy. One thing we did notice is that several tables had ordered large portions of French fries as appetizers! So maybe, this is the secret for this place: order French fries! We will not be back to try. I almost forgot: they charge you extra for bread!
Overrated, overpriced. Not a good selection. Fish was good but overpriced.
First visit and most delicious meal in 20 years traveling to Vero! but definitely a treat
New Years Eve
Wonderful server (Katrina), creative specials. A bit pricey for the location, but certainly one of the area’s top restaurants.
Food was exceptional true delight! Only hesitation is the bartender who has a heavy hand, ordered four different cocktails none were of the flavor profiles one would expect. All the cocktails were heavy on alcohol low on flavor would recommend sticking to wine selection. This is a truly an exceptional restaurant worth visiting by far one of the true gems of the treasure coast. This chef is one of the best in Florida it so great to see him back and his food never disappoints. Great food , great service, great setting just poor cocktails.
We had Christmas Eve dinner at Citrus Grillhouse. The service was attentive. Our meals were delicious. The atmosphere was quite festive. Can’t wait to go back..
Xmas eve had great food and service
Always amazing food at the Citrus Grill. Catching happy hour on the patio makes for a beautiful sunset over the ocean.
Always so happy to treat ourselves to a beautiful dinner at Citrus Grillhouse. It never fails to impress me, my favorite restaurant in Vero Beach!
Lovely restaurant and beautiful setting. A nice diverse menu. Having said that, I would have liked to have the option of a more "middle of the road" choice. Not being a huge seafood fan, I felt a bit limited. However, my friends enjoyed every ounce of their fresh seafood choices.
As always, we had amazing food with great service. Our favorite dining spot in Vero Beach
It was our anniversary and we were seated between two other couples(very old). We asked about getting another table but were old none are available due to reservations. Well as the evening went on , those tables were never occupied. Actually the restaurant was not busy at all. The food and service were on point.
We sat at a hitop in the bar area and it was delightful. The service, food and view of the ocean were perfect.
We love sitting outside beach side. The food is really good and they have good wine selections.
Dinner was delicious on all counts - a tried and true appetizer here is the crab wrap - filled with fresh crab w/a light spicy sauce - we shared an endive salad for a 2nd course /served cold, crisp and very tasty - for our entrée we each tried a special of the evening - bucotini pasta (a hole in the center to absorb sauces)w/exotic mushrooms - could not have been better - service was very good (the server, Harry is experienced and takes very good care of the table) I would like more appetizer and entree specials to choose from. We come here often.
An excellent choice of specials were on the menu. The service was excellent. Would definitely would recommend.
Service and food was excellent though I would have preferred a hot veggie to go with my fish rather than cold sliced tomatoes. I suspect the chef needed to add color to the plate and tomatoes was easy. The tables are really close together so don’t expect any intimate conversations!!
Great experience! Food outstanding: beet salad to start was wonderful. Had appetizer of Italian meatballs in broth as my entre and it was perfect in flavor and size. Husband had wagu strip steak cooked perfectly with truffle fries-delish!! Servers and bus staff friendly and efficient. Can’t wait to go back!
Disappointed in our experience at the Citrus Grillhouse! Our dinners were not hot, the veal was tough, the lamb was tough also, and the $25 burger was overcooked. Some of our favorites were removed from the "new" menu. I think Citrus has seen the last of us!
One of the best in Vero, always confident the food will be excellent !!
Loved the rehab atmosphere and both the service and food were excellent. We’ll be back.
Service was great. Our appetizers were very good. While my girlfriend’s grouper was excellent my duck had a good taste was tough which was disappointing
Excellent service. Food was attractive and very good.
We had the early bird special before going to to a show. The food was excellent. Two of us had the salmon, one had the chicken and one the meatloaf. Everyone was delighted with the meal and the service!
Awesome food especially the grouper. A little overpriced, but will come back to this very special place!
Delicious food and excellent service
We had the loin of lamb and spinach tagliolini the appetizer we choose was the crab rolls everything was prepared and presented very nicely the lamb rolled in ash was fantastic as always service was great and so was the ambiance we are locals and we highly recommend this restaurant
So glad they are back after the fire. One or the 2 best restaurants on the island in Vero Beach .
The menu is a great mix of everything. My black grouper was perfectly cooked as was my husband's tuna. Can't go wrong with the truffle pasta either. So glad to see the chef is on point after the fire. Prices are steep though.
Food and service were excellent as always, beginning to end at Citrus.
Amazing food - friendly perfect service - this has become our “go to” place on the ocean - ever changing fresh menu -
Had a fabulous dinner and as always Veron makes the evening so pleasant!
Thank you Veron,
Best pasta I’ve had in recent memory. Pleasant decor. Friendly and attentive staff.
This was the first time back since the re-opening. I have to say I was bit disappointed in the limited menu and the uncomfortable seating. Service was good, although sooooo many people that kept coming to the table. Not sure if I would put this on my list for recommendations. Lunch yes, Dinner ?
