A Beverly Hills bar you actually want to hang out in.
Awesome atmosphere, delicious food, fantastic location. I would highly recommend!
Came for lunch and it was fantastic. The atmosphere is great, and we had an excellent outdoor seat on the patio. The food was delicious and overall I would certainly come back again!
Get the brussel sprouts-- and you won't regret it! (We got them for an appetizer and as dessert!) Haven't stopped talking about this restaurant since our visit a few days ago! So glad we happened to pick it. Will definitely be returning!
Service was excellent. Food was creative and tasty. Portions were a bit light, but great taste. Wine list was probably weak point. Some niche high quality choices, but limited choices and anything under $100 was not worth purchasing.
Had the bartender test out a new cocktail he created on me. So delicious! Great service and ambiance. I will definitely be back.
I was rather disappointed by the restaurant. We were seated ordered our drinks and the waitress went over the menu highlighting several of the favorite dishes including the Beef Short Ribs. Two members of our party ordered the Short Ribs based on her recommendation only to find out they ran out. How does a Beverly Hills restaurant at 8 PM run out of an entree. The entire mood of the dinner changed. The waitress suggested people get the New York Strip steak instead because it was beef. Really? How can you compare short ribs to steak? The 2 guests did order the steak and it was boring and certainly not worth the extra money we paid for the steaks. The waitress did give us 1 free sundae for dessert because she felt bad.
2 other disappointing situations occurred: we had selected this restaurant to celebrate my husband receiving his doctorate. When the restaurant called to confirm our reservation they noted my comment of the special occasion. However at the restaurant they did nothing to recognize the special occasion. Finally as we are wrapping up our dinner a man comes over to me and says the restaurant is closing, here is the key to your car (which we had valet parked) and please pay me for parking. Really can you be any more rude? We were done, paid our bill and left.
I expect better from a high end Beverly Hills restaurant.
We live in OC and stumbled upon this place. Had a fantastic experience with amazing food and attentive friendly service.
I've been to citizen a number of times.. I've always LOVED the food. My friend and I ordered 5 dishes... and were shocked that we truly thought each and all were almost uneatable.. not sure what's going on.
Menu Ltd., food not great. Presentation not great. Ordered for the three of us and only two of us got our mail.
Great menu with delicious choices. Ever dis was excellent
Beautiful spot for brunch! Food was good , sangria was tasty , get the banana bread toast !
I have eaten here several times & it may have been an off night but the food was not as good & service was fine but nothing special. It was disappointing & would not rush back!
Dishes prepared and served with great care. Nice setting on the "triangle" in Beverly Hills.
All choices exceot for one ("Pounded" chicken expected to arrtive crisp and, well, you know, pounded, was neither) were "happy/clean plate" delicious.
We will return!
If you are looking for great food and cocktails and are not in a rush, hit it up.
Got there for happy hour on saturday from 5-7pm. I had the mai tai (on happy hour) and she got the strawberry fields (no happy hour). Both were great. We started off with the ceviche and the cheddar biscuits. The biscuits came with some delicious butter and smoked honey. I was hesitant about the honey but it was just the right amount of smokiness. The ceviche was good too, it comes with chips and they even gave us more as we ran out. The beef wellington was the star. I would highly recommend it if you are okay with dropping $53 on it, it was worth every penny as we split it. Our server was very attentive and nice. The patio had very warm heaters and the music and ambiance was perfect for us. I would definitely come back if on the neighborhood.
Great Service, Great Food!
This restaurant is a true revelation, with every surprise a good one. Over the top biscuits, extraordinary salad, delicious cocktail, and halibut that was sublime in its freshness and luscious sauce. Every bit as good as the acclaimed establishment next door.
Food was mediocre and service was terrible. There were few other diners, but it took forever to get the attention of a server, which was frustrating since twice we didn’t have necessary cutlery (eg a knife, necessary to cut the chicken that had just been served). Also they forgot to put in a dish and when we asked for it, the server pretended as if it had just required all that time to prepare it rather than admit the error.
I would not go back.
Got seated ordered drinks took about 15 minutes to arrive. Appetizers very bland. Waiter switched and went missing for another 10 minutes. Waste of a $100 reward
Great vibe in a lively open restaurant
Priced very reasonable for being in Beverly Hills
Interesting menu with something for everyone
Interesting unusual menu
Loved the vibe, food and service were both excellent.
The food was excellent. The halibut ceviche was delicious and the osso buco was outstanding. The broth with the osso buco was amazing. The service was first rate. Definitely worth a return visit!
Very nice meal. Very relaxed and good service and food. Perfect place to take our 25 year old while visiting him in LA. Not crowded late on a Friday night
Charming restaurant with an outside patio. Interesting in that the venue has a diverse amount of options. My dining companion and I each had chicken dish and both were excellent. I look forward to going tonight.
I have always been impressed with the service i have gotten at Citizen but what really impressed me last Friday was, not only was our server beyond sweet, informed and gracious but she was incredible in helping me with my dog who came with me to sit on the patio. This is a place i will come over and over again.
The chef here is outstanding
everything perfect, dinig, ambiente and service first class
Great burger! Great drinks! Great salmon! Great service! Definitely recommend!
Nice restaurant. Food was good. Services was a little slow. And there were not packed.
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 food was good. A little on the pricey side.
Portions were fairly generous.
The service was professional and efficient.
The banana split was huge, but it cost $20.
I will return.
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.
