Great food, services was okay for being on a slow day. Would recommend and go back. I loved the Tomato Basil soup, it was definitely in my top 5 I’ve ever had.
This was our first time at Citizen and we loved it! Great food, good service, and excellent drink choices. Would definitely go again and absolutely recommend!
A quick bite before Wild game, they validate parking!
Admittedly we were there on 3/16 and there was a large MN Wild and St. Patty's day crowd in the restaurant. Nonetheless, the service was extremely slow and unknowledgeable about the food or drink menu.
Then, given the only restrooms are in the hotel lobby, the hotel decided to lock the restrooms and force customers to go the the concierge to get a key to access the restrooms. With over a hundred people in the restaurant and lobby this was a totally unacceptable action.
I will never return to this restaurant or, for that matter, stay at this hotel.
We had a wonderful time at Citizen! The food was amazing. The service was excellent. The atmosphere is wonderful. This is my new favorite spot in St. Paul. We will definitely be back!
They have a new chef and menu. A bit pricey but tasted OK. Will return.
Food was really good. Ordered the crab cakes and their house burger - I kid you not the closest thing the Midwest has to in n out Burger. 🌴🍔❤️
Great food, fun menu, wonderful service.
It was pretty empty, which is surprising for a weekday lunch in downtown. Service and food were great, though it seemed slightly over priced for what we got.
The menu is limited, food just so so. I was expecting a more upscale experience, but was disappointed
Average food for a very inflated price. Restroom needs a keycard and is a long hike outside through the hotel. One dish was cold on the inside (Au Gratin potatoes).
Everything about our dining experience at Citizen was outstanding. The staff was friendly, attentive, and efficient. The food was amazing - appetizer, drinks, entrees, and desserts were delicious! The location was close to everything. We will definitely make it there another time soon!
We came for Valentines dinner and the special menu was excellent. The lamb chops were huge and cooked perfect. Desert was excellent. Great menu selections.
This restaurant is not bad for lunch or a quick meal. Definitely not good for a nice dinner. The service is not great and the food is ok.
We ate at Citizen on a busy Saturday made even crazier by the St. Paul Winter Carnival. I felt sorry for the wait staff as they just couldn't keep up. The noise level was intense. The food was adequate but not exciting. I would return on a quieter night perhaps if I couldn't get in at one of the other local places.
Our experience at Citizens was outstanding! The service was friendly, and helpful! We highly recommend going there. We were there during happy hour and their were a lot of choices. We will have to come back and try the dinner menu some time. Thank you for a great experience!
You wouldn't expect it from a hotel restaurant, but this is a real foodie location. Special thanks to our server, Laura, who was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient
The food was fantastic, very unique and fresh, awesome flavors. Our server, Laura, was just lovely. Friendly, personable, so great!!
Food and service are fantastic! Short ribs, Shrimp & Grits, and the Beet Salad (have had it 3 times!) Deviled eggs were above par and the Cheese Curds with home made ketchup are great starters!
Minnesota sushi was not to my liking but others may enjoy it. I thought the pickle was too big and the prosciutto was tough. Scallops smelled really fishy even the people next to us we didn't know commented on it. Prime rib sliders were good and the cheese curds were fabulous. Only 1 bartender on after the game and it got quite busy.
Great updates to the Saint Paul InterContinental restaurant CITIZEN. The ambiance was fresh, design forward and inviting. The food was really tasty with good portion sizes. The help was friendly and prompt. For sure check it out, even for a few cocktails with friends. Great atmosphere!
Mary Kay is a fantastic server and a delight to chat with. Pork medallions and beef filet were tasty. Really nice wine selection.
Our food was quite tasty; we shared the Minnesota Sushi, an excellent green salad with cheese, walnuts and a maple dressing, short ribs, and mac and cheese with chicken. (The chicken was not necessary as the five cheeses were rich and tasty on their own.) Lovely and attentive service. A very nice experience overall.
Dinner before Transiberian Orchestra, mac n cheese with broccolini was yummy, just as good as last time. Husband ordered the citizen burger, great flavor and very juicy. Would definitely return.
Food quality was very poor. Dry.
Went here on Christmas Day. The service was slow and the food was served luke warm - I would expect better for over $40 per person
Worst experience ever. We waited over 45 minutes to place order. Food arrived and was cold and not correct. Second time food was under cooked. Asked for butter and it was never brought. Never received rolls and all of the other tables did. Asked for manager who was unsympathetic. The bill was $165.00 for 3 people and all he offered was to take 1 meal off the bill. We never even finished our meals, it was so bad. However desert was good. Will never go there again and will warn all of my friends to go somewhere else.
The side dishes were excellent, the main dishes were not good. The lobster sandwich had soggy, tough pieces of lobster served on regular sandwich bread with fries out of a bag beside it. The salmon was terribly over cooked. The crab cakes were small The garlic spinach and beets were excellent. Drinks were good. Likely won’t go back because the main dishes were so awful but if I did I’d get a burger and a beer during happy hour. The space is beautiful, service was OK.
Exceptional food and Ambiance. This is my fourth time dining at Citizen, and have always enjoyed the food and experience.
Food was very good. Would’ve been helpful to know that it was inside a hotel when we made the reservations.
Small plates were very small, food was average at best, waitress was unaware of specials advertised on the restaurant's website, even though she knew we were attending a show it took a long time to get our tab.
We were there on a quiet night and 6 of us were able to talk in normal tones. Service was excellent and the food was good.
Typical bar food.
Cute place if you’re staying at the hotel - not worth a visit otherwise.
Great food, good wine selection, great service all for a good price!
Dirty dining room - dirty dishes on most of the tables. Food was OKAY. Berries in the side of berries were moldy but the server didn’t charge for them and replaced with fresh-squeezed oj.
We were a little disappointed in some of the foods the we ordered. The taste was good, but my short rib was more than 20 percent fat. Not what I would call lean.
It was Restaurant Week. A Foo Fighters concert was booked at the Excel Center that night, so the restaurant was crowded and noisy at the time we dined. Service was slow because of the crowd, but server was pleasant and helpful with recommendations. Food was good quality and value. It's deserving of a return visit.
Visited for restaurant week; the appetizers were fine but not awesome, my friend said the scallops entree was just ok, and dessert was actually bad. However, the beef short ribs entree was fantastic. Our waitress was extremely considerate and attentive and it’s nice that they validate parking in the hotel ramp, but overall atmosphere and food were not enough to make me want to go back.
Went for lunch during restaurant week, had a great meal and will be back! Especially loved the tomato bisque soup. Service was excellent.
