Great scene, food and drinks. Get the churros! One of the best desserts I’ve had in a long time.

I have been to Citrus& Salt many times for brunch. This was the most disappointing. Hostess was not friendly when our group arrived earlier. Bartender was great. When we were seated, it was the same bartender that was our server which was fine. Food came out at random time. 1 Entrée was served with 4 order of homefries only for the first 15 minutes. 1 Chicken and Waffle came followed 15 minutes by the last two Chicken and Waffle entrée. The table had to wait for another 10 minutes for the last person to receive her order. Basically food was cold bc the group was all waiting for the last person. Chicken was completely burnt. Very very disappointed.

I didn’t really like the menu change. They took away one of my favorite items, the cornbread. Drinks were good, but the rest of the meal was just okay.

Unfortunately the evening started out on the wrong foot ..we had specifically requested a table and when seated told is that only high top in bar area was available - when we watched hostess give away a back table to a no reservation party .
We said we preferred the requested table .. and was told it would be 15 min. We stayed at higher too and ordered drinks - and 25 min later told we could now be moved by a rude manager as he picked up our menus. We did not want to slight the current server so we told him we would stay where we were currently
In the end we had a nice night and truly other than the great server - not impressed by the other staff they we had exposure to.
And no compensation of any sort nor actual apologies were given

Service wasn’t great. Portion size is very small, but the food itself is pretty good. They messed up a couple things with our order, and our waitress seemed annoyed the entire time.

Food was a bit salty, especially the braised meet tacos and the charred octopus. Overall, though, food was good. Great service. Nice ambiance.

Love coming back to Citrus and Salt, it’s always appetizing when the tapas are endless and you can come
Back and get others that would be suitable for you and others. My girlfriends best friend had a celiac allergy so the kitchen was very vigilant on making sure everything was taken care of properly, rest assured it was smart and great success was in return. Will continue to come back back!!

Would recommend, but only for a one time type of thing. service was incredibly slow, waitress was not attentive whatsoever (took thirty minutes to get the check and have her take the check to process.) the poor service is probably why it is difficult to get a reservation. the meal did not need to take two hours, most of that time was spent waiting to order drinks, waiting to order food and waiting on the check. Food came fast (delivered before drinks,) and was very good. However, the timing of getting drinks after food was odd, especially since it was not busy.

The food was absolutely delicious, and I love that it's small plates so we could try a lot of things. They had a good selection of vegetarian and pescatarian options. The service was great!

I got a high table at 10 PM on NYE with my soon to be fiancé. The staff was fantastic! The food was fabulous! And for my money, I think Citrus & Salt makes the best margarita in Boston. We love this place!

Share plate style dining, w/ seating that’s close together. Food was good but the environment was the highlight. Recommend the scallops and mussels!

Great casual spot, loved all the menu choice and taste.
Drinks were pretty impeccable too. Great decor with a slight wish the ceiling didn’t look like it was 100 years old and better looking front door. All else was great

I was not overly impressed with the drinks: margarita and sangria. The food was ok, small portions. Interior is very pretty and service was nice.

Given the number of meals most people eat, any dining experience that provides a superlative merits unmitigated encomium. I had the most amazing mango-jalapeño margarita and most delicious ancho-fig marmalade (atop my braised short rib) at Citrus & Salt, two tastes I won't soon forget. Admittedly, the tapas' cost makes enjoying them much more of a luxury, but true food memories often involve a hefty price--at least this one proved worthwhile.
