U-10 Sea Scallops
Pan seared scallops, vegetable primavera risotto
Italian Black Truffle Butter Fries
Local Snapper or Virginia Flounder
Flounder finished with lemon aioli and breadcrumb or Pan-roasted snapper, chilled lemon-scented pasta, baby heirloom tomato, lemon thyme vinaigrette
We were seated inside at a nice corner booth with a view of the restaurant and bar area. Our server was informative and attentive. We shared the Baby Arugula Salad tossed in a delicious lemon vinaigrette. I got the Snapper entree. It was cooked perfectly and served with a lemon pasta. Both were delicious. My son liked his “melt in your mouth” Spinach Tagliolini. For dessert, we shared the Deconstructed S’mores and had to stop ourselves from licking the plate. The marshmallow tasted like it was heated over a campfire. All courses were spaced appropriately. I had a glass of my favorite wine, Belle Glos Pinot Noir, which is hard to find “by the glass.” Citrus did not disappoint!
Great atmosphere starting off with a great hostess, bar tender and server (Nelson)!!! Sat at their “Honeymoon Table” on the beach!! Pork Chop was elite and scallops were perfect! Suggest reservations as others had to wait 30-45 minutes to be seated!
Visiting the area and this restaurant seemed like perfect stop for lunch. The view from the porch overlooked the beach. Service was great. The food was delicious and the price was right. There wasn’t a single dish that we didn’t devour. We will definitely return.
Excellent all sround
My daughter and I had the flounder. It was excellent, light and fluffy. The lemony angel hair pasta served with it really added to the flavor. Service was on the spot :)
We arrived an hour early and they were very accommodating. We had a beautiful view of the ocean. The service was wonderful and our waiter was exceptional and explained the menu. My husband had the scallops and risotto while I had the local red snapper. Both dishes were wonderful and very fresh! Dessert was perfect, key lime pie,a perfect pairing of sweetness and the tartness of key lime! Don’t hesitate to make a reservation for this perfect coastal Jewel!
We have been to Citrus Grillhouse several times and in the past have had a great experience, hence returning last night.
We did not have a great experience at all. From the moment we got to the restaurant the young male host was not very welcoming. We booked through open table and were informed that an outside table would be a 30 minute wait so we opted to eat inside. There should be an option when you book on the app 'inside', 'outside' or 'bar' instead of just 'bar' and 'standard' seating.
Then when we got to the table, Layla, looked less than thrilled to be given our table. She rushed through telling us what the specials were and then when we ordered the appetizers she wanted to get the entrée order quickly. My husband ordered his appetizer and then she proceeded to ask what he wanted for his entrée (very rushed). He asked if something happened and she replied 'This is our busiest hour and I want to get your order in'.
This restaurant I would class as a dining experience not a rushed, fast food type place.
I get it, people have off days but, when you are in the service industry you need to make an effort even if you're not feeling it.
She definitely didn't make an effort at all; rushed and aggressive!
The food was just ok too which was disappointing for what you pay.
Needless to say we will not be in a rush to return!
Food was fantastic. Service was wonderful. We will go back.
Excellent food. Excellent service.
A hidden gem. The food was exquisite. The mushrooms were to die for. My husband and I had the lamb with hummus. Unbelievable. We liked it so much we returned for lunch before the end of our vacation. I can’t wait to go back.
Our server Layla was Amazing. Food was delicious. Service was exceptional.
Our server, Vernon, was wonderful. He had a great personality and was very attentive. Best meal we have had in Vero.
Awesome place to have a date night or dinner with friends
Gorgeous location on the ocean in Vero Beach. Very clean with a nice beach elegance. Food was a little pricey, but excellent taste and well-seasoned. Wine selection was good, and moderately priced. Overall, a great choice
I ordered the truffle risotto and hubby ordered the pork chops. Food was superb and ambience was cozy. Service always good.
Very under staffed = slow service. We tried to be as understanding as we could because we know it’s the case for many restaurants right now. But when the server said they weren’t ready to seat us and we should’ve waited outside in the sweltering heat with an infant instead of coming in to sit.. and then brought me an overdressed salad when I specifically asked for it to be as lightly dressed as possible - it was enough for us. Probably will not be back again.
Beautiful ocean views.
Food was great but not remarkable
The food was amazing, the servers knowledgeable and pleasant and the atmosphere was beautiful. The fries with truffle butter appetizer should not be missed! We stumbled upon this place nine years ago and make sure to come back every trip. Just an absolutely lovely dinner.
The view was great! However, up-charge for almost everything. Above all kitchen staff (cook and waiters) were eating food from plates that were being served.
The Food was pretty good and the service was decent as well. The food was a bit overpriced, menu wasn't that big and the ambiance was alright. It was a decent experience but not amazing.
Great food! The staff was great!
Amazing food and even better service. The entire staff went above and beyond in every way imaginable.
This was a disappointment. I ordered the $90 Waygu steak dinner and although it was flavorful the presentation looked like they could not bother to “dress up” the plate. I believe a lot of what makes going to a nice restaurant enjoyable is feasting with your eyes as well as with the taste of food and this was not attractive. I expected more for a $90 investment in an entree.
Potentially a very nice place but the canvas in the bar was ripped and tattered; more like a look out of B Class movie. Though the place claims to have a chef the tuna was out of a tin! The burger lacked even a lettuce leaf and whilst I do not necessarily want lots of rabbit food something fresh with it would have been nice.
The saving grace a young Bar Man who knew his stuff and had a sense of humor! Or may be, the place was all about humor!
Your chairs are too hard! Can't you get some cushions please? I was happy to leave as my butt was hurting.
A birthday dinner for my special wife! Food great, service great, wine great………..all great!
The food is always very good but selections are limited. The atmosphere is very nice and the service is always exceptional.
It’s SO LOUD. Music was blasting at us. Can’t this restaurant get this figured out; after years and years of the many of the reviews regarding the sound. Get a large rug for the center of the room to buffer the sound of the diners.
Just turn the music off.
Even outside it was loud. The music was heard on the street. Sounded like Riverside Cafe.
You are missing a great opportunity for GREAT reviews.
From the moment we arrived, the service was impeccable. The hostess was very accommodating while we waited for our table. Our server was exceptionally nice and our dinner was delicious! My daughter enjoyed her pasta made with butter sauce, my mom had the burger which was grilled to perfection and I had the skirt steak with salad. Overall, 5 stars !!
The service from the kid pouring water to the waitress was wonderful. The food was great too. Our only issue was the restaurant was so loud. Wish they had some sound baffling
Food is delicious and great location
We had a wonderful time with a beautiful window seat. The service and food were excellent. We will definitely be going back!
Lovely modern open floor plan. Can see kitchen from table. A bit noisy and bench type seating a bit congested but big pillows separate people. We had YAEGER for server and he was fantastic. Food was eclectic and very delicious. Arugla salad bountiful and beet salad so yummy, but smallish portion. They had flounder which was delicate and served as 2 filets. So good. We going back in few days.
Food quality was very good. I would have wished for more seafood options for a location on the beach however. More vegetables as sides would have been nice too. There was a surprising amount of pasta with most entrees, not sure how that is commiserate with hot weather conditions, but whatever. Cocktail menu was quite strong, as was the wine selection.
Interior space was updated, classy, yet balanced the relaxed FL vibe.
Service was quite excellent, even down to the host and bussers.
Too many bugs flying around. Also the food was at the table too fast. We felt a bit rushed.
Birthday dinner , Food was fab , view gorgeous looked like a painting !
Fabulous food and service as usual. Always one of our favorites. Our visiting guests had a lovely experience. Getting pricy post covid as is all food.
Citrus never disappoints! The food and service are always excellent! The flavors are bursting and so delicious. From the drinks to appetizers to mains and desserts, we always leave full and very happy.
The food is always amazing and the atmosphere is just lovely. Relaxed, beach but upscale. A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion. I love going there.
