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.

The service here is incredible. You are greeted with a smile, no attitudes, all very down to earth good people. This is foodie heaven, I sampled a bunch of small plates. It was hard to pick a favorite! Can't wait to go back. Awesome happy hour.

We really enjoyed our dinner, the service was good and the food was very nice. One note is the the first glass of wine is super small and the second is larger which I can only assume is a way of getting you to buy two glasses! (This happened twice so not just a one off)

Overall great and would return for sure

Patio is pretty and appealing. Made a res with a note to be seated outside. Got seated in the empty indoor space and my date didn’t know to ask for outside, so it was basically like being a reality show—date in an EMPTY restaurant.

I was pretty disappointed in this dining experience. First, I had planned to meet my friend at 11:45am so we would have more time. I had even called and mentioned this and was NOT informed that the restaurant doesn't even open until noon time, which is really odd in beverly hills (or anywhere for that matter) so we were standing outside and nearly went somewhere else to eat. After we ordered, we were told that their biscuits would be another 15 minutes (they should have given these to us for this mess up on the kitchens part) and they certainly worth a $9 price point....that was absurd! the tuna in my salad was overcooked and honestly, did not taste good, like it was a lower grade tuna, so that was off-putting. and finally, when the bill came, and I put my credit card down more than 10 minutes came by and I finally had to wave someone down to take the payment. Also, I had received coffee and was never offered a 2nd cup, which I thought was also pretty poor.

We were there at an off-hour, so the place was quite loosely populated. Nevertheless, the hostess seated us at a booth right next to another party. Thankfully, they were not overly loud, but there was plenty of space to seat us another booth away from them.

The food was delicious, the plates beautifully composed, and the service excellent!

I love this restaurant! The service couldn't be sweeter or more unobtrusively attentive. The food is solid, though I would like a few more fresh options - but everything I've ever eaten here has been terrific. The drinks are good. The wine list is small but reasonable and no stinkers. There are 3 distinct areas: bar, outdoor patio, and dining room. All are busy but not overwhelming, with a good buzz but not so loud that you have to shout. One of my favorite spots in BH!

We sat on the patio because the interior was so incredibly noisy. There were no more than 5 groups of patrons indoors, but the music was just blasting. Very unpleasant.

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.

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.

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.
