Lovely restaurant that we go to whenever we are in Vero. Only disappointment was that all outdoor dining was reserved. Server was excellent and we both had a duck special which was great.

This was our first time visiting Citron for dinner. Our server was excellent. Three of us had one of the night’s specials, two of us had entrees from the menu. All were delicious. Very nice casual meal.

Our first visit. Brian, our server, was excellent. We always ask for some exceptions and the responses were embraced. We were unhurried. Food was excellent. We did not have desert, but observed tempting options around us. Booked a return on the spot.

Overall experience was very positive. Promptly seated outside with reservation. Pleasant atmosphere. Slight confusion in terms of ordered menu selection, but corrected immediately. Lunch menu slightly limited. Service was pleasant, although a little slow at one point. Busy season. Chicken Caprese was a hit. Definitely recommend for casual lunch.

It was a delightful afternoon to enjoy the ambiance and delicious food at Citron Bistro. I treated my friend for her Birthday and she was delighted. The customer service by the Hostess, waitress/staff was OUTSTANDING. They were patient, accommodating and efficient! It was crowded with many people requesting tables and the Host Staff handled it most professionally..so much so that everyone left not just "satisfied" but, "happy"!

Everything was wonderful..our server was very helpful and most pleasant..made good suggestions....the meal was outstanding and cooked perfectly. The only issue was the noise level especially as we had a large noisy group beside us . I would recommend it highly.

Luckily it was a perfect night to dine outside. Our table was ready as promised and the service was good. Of the 6 people at dinner half had the same entree, at the end of the meal everyone said their food was very good. Only glitch was that we said it was a special birthday, and they did not acknowledge.

Everything was delicious and would have made for a most enjoyable evening if it had not gotten started off so poorly. The restaurant did not honor our request, made at the time of the reservation, for outdoor seating (due to the noisy/close tables inside). As a result, the hostess was curt, insinuated we had never made that request, and crammed us at a very small table outside in the corner, where we spent the evening being bitten by noseeums and ants. It's a good thing the food is so well prepared at this restaurant or I would not go back. However, we have had better experiences on previous visits to this restaurant, and will hope the future will be more of those more pleasant times.

This was our 2nd time eating at Citron Bistro.
It took a bit for us to receive service but, once we did it was good. I think the tables for 2 are a little cramped but, not a deal breaker. We really enjoyed being outside and our dinner was delicious.
Thank you

One of our "go to" standards for casual dinning. We have been going for years and enjoy the local nature of the place and the food is very good for the price. I will say they need to figure out the wait staff to customer ratio as on occasion we have had to wait for service. Not all the time. but in season you need to relax and not be rushed.

Disappointed. Our first visit at Sunday Brunch. Good server and great outdoor table. My wife had eggs Benedict which were good. The Belgian waffles I ordered were burnt around edges and no whipped cream. "Chef is too busy to whip." Sent it back and ordered eggs Benedict. When they arrived, eggs were translucent, ie barely cooked. Gave up and settled for bacon order and bloody mary made with saki (they have no liquor license). Will try again but not rushing out. A good chef wouldn't allow either of my meals to leave kitchen. Too bad. Great setting

We can't wait to go back! Citron has a small menu but the food was excellent. Three of us had the shrimp with grits and mushrooms and it was outstanding. We also tried the cream of potatoe cheddar soup, so yummy. The desserts were equally fantastic, especially the flourless chocoloate torte. Service was excellent. Don't miss this hidden gem.
