Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, Citizen is a social dining experience featuring a New American menu created by Chef Seth Greenburg, highlighting the global flavors of LA. Our bar program draws inspiration from iconic 1960s Americana and features transportive tiki cocktails and irreverent straightforward drinks. The interior of the restaurant hints at the rebellious style and glamour of 1960s Beverly Hills. As the former location of celebrity tailor Jack Taylor, the restaurant echoes a bespoke sense of quality that feels suited to every guest. Adding to the atmosphere is a large open-air lounge and fire pit that plays host to the evening’s cocktail party, which starts early and goes all night long.

They say if you spend enough time in a particular restaurant or bar, you become a citizen there. We look forward to welcoming you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
