Citrus Grillhouse Ratings and Reviews
I will definitely go back to Citrus Grill but our first experience wasn't great. We ordered the olives and marcona almonds as an app. The portion size could have fed ten people. We ordered snapper which was overcooked and the sauce was odd for fish - a thin gravy that seemed better suited for beef.
I love this restaurant. Other than being out f a few drinks they were out of the selections were very nice.
The service was very slow. It really wasn’t even that busy. Our waitress was great it was the kitchen.
Swordfish was really good as was the duck and the pasta dish.
The lettuce with crab appetizer was very
tiny. My daughter ordered it as her meal. Just wish they had told her it was so tiny.
The beet salad was awesome and so was the raviolo.
This experience is 2 sided. First, upon being seated for our Saturday, 8:30pm reservation, we are informed that the kitchen is out of: ALL fish entree's (salmon, snapper and a third I can't recall), also out of the filet (how is that possible?!) and the Haricots Verts side dish. It's Saturday night for goodness sake with people still coming in!
We order......the Lamb for me - perfectly cooked medium rare and the accompanying feta, mint, tomato and onion "relish" very very nice. My husband - started out with the green salad (large and very nicely dressed) and a shared order of Truffle buttered french fries - ADDICTING!!! His entree - the shrimp risotto declared delicious.
Overall a good experience, and we will be back, but Seriously.............a little better planning from the chef for in-season Saturday night dining
We had eaten dinner a few times all excellent, but this was our first time to Citrus Grillhouse for lunch with friends and it did not disappoint! All of our meals were excellent, two had the Mahi Mahi sandwich, I had the asian chicken salad, the was light and spectacular, my husband had the flat iron steak sandwich.
We will be back for lunch and dinner!
One in our party uses a walker but they seated us far from the entrance.
Veal flank steak and lamb loin were excellent as was the endive salad. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Swordfish was ok but just ok. Background music was audible but not overpowering. Desserts were meh.
All in all a very nice experience.
My husband and I had a wonderful dinner experience. Not everything has to be about "specials" , though we were offered some very interesting ones - we decided to go with ones we loved from the "regular menu" - and this night we were not disappointed in our choices - We both had the crab salad as an appetizer - cool, crisp and so tasty -For entrees - I had the salmon in what I call oriental inspired broth - Wow - flavors amazing - my husband had the snapper dish, likewise - Wonderfully seasoned - both entrees were full of flavor , the presentations artful and for me, very important served HOT - Chef is so innovative Service was flawless and very attentive -
The food is outrageous! Fresh pasta with spinach or truffle will bring me back maybe tomorrow ! Veal flank steak is a rare offering and was PERFECT. Nice wine list, cool creative salad choices ( we had the endive w/ Gorgonzola and the green bean w/ tomato), super service, nice atmosphere inside as it was chilly outside. Solid A
Service was good, food not so good. Asked for my steak to be cook medium, but it was served rare. Spinach fettuccine was way to salty and veal flank steak not as tender as last time.
It was quite cold outside so we sat inside where the noise level was extreme. Not a place you want to go for a nice quiet dinner. Disappointed.
We have visited the Citrus Grill House often. Always enjoy it. Food is made with fresh ingredients and prepared with some innovative touches. Service is always friendly and energetic. It is a bit loud but that is a part of the energetic experience. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed our dining experience very much - so happy that Chef is including some very, very interesting specials. My husband and I both had the grilled octopus appetizer - Delicious!! My husband had the duck entrée with a brandy, cherry sauce - a perfect combination with a root vegetable puree I had the steak special - can't repeat the name, but according to the server and my taste buds - a higher quality to Kobi beef - hard to describe the succulence, decadence of this tasting experience - it was served with a simplly delicious black oil truffle risotto . Can't wait to return ----
We decided to go out with another couple on Wednesday, avoid the weekend crowds and were seated promptly.
Sever was pleasant and although the food was tasty, our plates (scallops) my wife asked for a veg and was offered beans (she cannnot eat) and she asked for Spinach, So when we added spinach the was an additional charge. Really? Another member had fettuccine and 60% of it had onions. He told the staff and they said oh I’m sorry. We ordered desserts and nothing was offered to make up for the fettuccine.
Oh don’t forget the appetizers, the Caprese salad was tasty but not for the $12.95 each. We go out often, but I would have a hard time retuning.
I met a friend of mine for lunch - we ordered two items - the turkey burger and the tuna salad sandwich and split them so she could try both items. She loved them both. This restaurant is on the beach which is fantastic especially if the weather is nice. Great view, excellent food and service.
Service was wonderful, we are outside to the sound of the ocean and it was great. Had the mushroom special app., loin of lamb, salmon and Mac and cheese. All were perfectly prepared and portion size was very nice. Ended the evening with with the small bit chocolate cake. Yummy
We have been many times to the Citrus Grillhouse and find the food consistently good. It can be noisy, and so we prefer to sit outside on the porch. Unfortunately, most people seem to prefer to sit outside often making these tables difficult to get. The porch is so nice with the Ocean and beach beyond. Service was good, but we missed Vernon, our favorite waiter. I’m sure we’ll be back next week for more good food, views, and kind service!
Food was good, but a little pricy. We all enjoyed our meals, but not over the top. I had swordfish and it was over cooked. My friend had the endive salad and pasta and felt it was very good. It was a Thursday night and the restaurant indoors was about 2/3rds full. No one table was really loud, but overall it was very noisy. At times when talking across the table you had to really raise your voice to be heard. Not sure I would return.
We were in Vero for a couple of days and wanted to stay beachside and be close enough to walk. The food was decent. We had 2 of the specials - Beef and Swordfish. We sat outside ( kind of bright) and the attire for the entire restaurant is dressy casual. Service was alright. A bit slow as our waitress seemed to 'overlook' us on her passes by our table. My guess is for really good food, you need to go into the downtown area, or drive further south on Ocean Dr.
