A Beverly Hills bar you actually want to hang out in.
I have brought many friends here as it is one of my favorites in Beverly Hills. They also love it. Not ostentatious. Casual upscale. Excellent service, good food, fun decor.
Excellent service and menu! Love Citizen!
Great service! Loved the decor, drinks were creative and amazing, food was pretty good, we got mostly appetizers. Great atmosphere.
The food is delicious and the service is excellent!!!
We had a really nice meal at Citizen this past weekend. The service was good and the food very delicious. We(four of us) had four starters, two fish dishes and two sides and it was the perfect amount of food. We shared two really good desserts. I enjoy the small plates concept where we got to try a lot of different things. I will be back.
The ambience is great at Citizen - even early when you’re having happy hour. Decor is gorgeous, and well kept. The menu selections for happy are great and the food was very tasty. We may not go back because we had such poor service. Server was inattentive, forgot to put two orders in entirely. A manager did notice that we were looking around for ~20 minutes without fresh drinks and dirty plates in front of us - a good save and comped some of our food. But unfortunately service for the rest of our experience did not improve after the intervention. Although the options and ambience were wonderful, I don’t think we’ll be back due to service.
Everything was wonderful!
This was my first time at this restaurant and it was ok but nothing special. The food was fresh and good but not very creative. The waiter was slow bringing the food. It was a ok experience but not special.
Beautiful entry & bar, but strange design in main dining room with ropes hanging everywhere. Design doesn't know if it wants to be. Was looking for more "wow" factor. Menu & food good but somewhat odd twists on traditional fare. Service good. Disappointing small pour on way overpriced wine.
Really enjoyed this restaurant. The menu has a lot of comfort food. Our server was fantastic. The only issue was that they were out of the bottle of wine we wanted which didn't make any sense to us.
Well this was the perfect Birthday Dinner everything about this place is special ! We had a great time !
I just wanted to say thank You Eric Cearley was so helpful & gave great customer service ! We will be back soon !
Great experience, all around! Very friendly staff (beyond), amazing menu - the food is delicious (comfort food done gourmet style) and the best ambiance! We loved everything and would highly recommend it and go again. Our busser took this pic for us from outside in - which was really sweet and everything was beyond our expectations!
Great location and friendly service. Food was good and happy hour is a good deal.
We had the best service. Our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable, and genuine. She made great food and drink recommendations. Parking was easy (valet $10)
As a party of 2, we were the first to arrive for the lunch hour. Nevertheless, it took an extremely long time to be served each course (2 courses took over an hour). Moreover, the steak frites was served cold as if had been sitting in the kitchen for a while. I really want to like this place, but I can't. This was my second bad experience there.
Nice place. Good service. Good food but not for the price. Expected better quality of food for the price.
Pretty restaurant, but door not that great given price.
We ordered from the Dine LA menu, and my Ahi appetizer tasted a bit fishy and I asked for my burger to be well done, but it came out medium.
My husband asked for pepper for his entree, however we had to ask another waiter to bring it after the waitress got too busy.
We asked for the bill, and also had to ask for the cookies, because the waitress did not automatically bring them.
No longer love this restaurant as food quality is crucial for us. All the dishes we used to return for are gone, leaving like-anywhere-menu items. Exception: The beet and goat cheese salad was very good. Wine selection is good. Service is great.
Turns out the chef left last Sept. I googled and got his name, Scott Howard, but couldn't find where he is now.
Really liked this place
Dining at Citizen was an all-round wonderful experience: great food and just right service. The music was not too loud, and all of my favorite songs. I'll be back, bringing lots of my friends.
Dessert was served while still clearly eating main course...there was ice cream on dessert
Checks were brought out split but double what we owed, very strange interaction, no big apology.
We tried Citizen during restaurant week and I must say it was awesome!!!
Food took way too long to get to the table (1.5 hrs estimate) and was a bit too salty. The overall vibe was nice but maybe a place I’d recommend checking out over a weekday instead.
Had a wonderful time here on our special Date night ! The ambiance service & the food were outstanding ! Can’t get over how juicy the chicken was & the biscuits were to die for ! Will definitely be coming back for more good times & extraordinarily scrumptious food !
The food and ambiance was lovely, but I simply would not come back because of the poor service. Such a shame because it is a very well done restaurant.
First time... food was very good! Service was a little slow... drinks were very good! Very good evening... would definitely come back!
A Fabulous Restaurant! Amazing Food! Great Service! Terrific Wine List! A 5 * Experience! We will be back!
Only problem is that they charged our cc twice
Food and service was exceptional
Citizen’s New Years Eve event sounded like an amazing time, and we loved the idea and theme (Casino Royale / James Bond). We were seated later than we expected for a party of 3, even though we had 10:15 pm late seating reservations. The first thing we noticed was that despite the well-publicized these, few people took the time to dress for the event and we waited at a bar table next to a man wearing torn jeans and a T-shirt.
Once we were seated, the poor understaffed wait team was in over their head. 20 minutes to get drink order in, and a full 45 minutes for the appetizers to arrive. We could not blame the waiter as he was hustling like a madman to keep up, and the food coming from this kitchen (when it did finally arrive) was exceptionally good. The cheese board was well curated and the crispy brussel sprouts were a dream, the main course of beef Wellington was heavenly. But it took FOREVER to get our dishes. In the end, our waiter didn’t charge us for the truffle fries that came a full hour after the main course and we took them home.
I would give Citizen another chance, based on the quality of food alone. But the management did not plan the NYE event wisely and the poor wait staff was overextended.
Great service and excellent good. We came for New year's Eve dinner. They had great options and accommodate very well
We thoroughly enjoyed our first dinner at Citizen. Everything from the Ceasar Salad to the cheddar biscuits to the osso bucco everything was outstanding. The decor, I didn't understand, but then again, I'm not a fan of Janathan Adler or the entire 70's "aesthetic." I'll be back!
Nice space, friendly staff but quality of food and service not impressive.
Steak was served medium-rare to medium, not medium-well as ordered.
No steak knives were provided until requested.
Food was not apportioned for us into separate plates though we stated that we'd be sharing.
Service staff was responsive to requests but not proactively attentive. We were not offered refills nor an opportunity to order additional drinks.
Food and service was great. Loved the 70’s music that was playing. Awesome atmosphere!
I love Citizen's relaxed atmosphere, and quality food. I originally discovered them on BringFido, as I was looking for dog friendly upscale dining options in Beverly Hills. They are so very welcoming, and it'a a great place to linger over lunch with friends, and your well behaved canine.
The biscuits are heavenly, and the beet salad is one of the best I've had - baby gold & red beets - yum!
Went for happy hour and dinner. very good cocktails and short rib tacos. Very good service. Ahi tartare was pricey and just average in flavor. Biscuits were delicious. Berry crisp was good but a bit expensive at $13. Coffee price of $8 was outrageous .
Food is slightly over priced for overall quality and presentation. Can't say the tuna tartare was totally fresh, but overall I would definitely come back again.
Delicious Food, Great Ambiance and Spot on Service! Highly Recommend!
