    This is one of my favorite restaurants, specifically the ambiance of the restaurant and the overall vibe, which is always great. This past time, our table was located in the back room..we had a party of 6 and it was for a friends birthday celebration. It was still a nice area...they did have music playing, and they have decorated the room/furniture nicely BUT the main dining room is why we chose this restaurant to celebrate our friends birthday. We still had a nice experience but we were a little bummed out when we realized the location of our table!

    I was very disappointed with the brunch menu, not at all like the last time I went for dinner. The food quality was poor, also different from the last 2 times I went it was very good. I will not go back for awhile, and will only go for dinner, never lunch or brunch again.

    If you have an allergy or any dietary restrictions, DO NOT GO HERE. The manager and servers tried to be as accomodating as possible, but their kitchen is not set up for anyone with dietary restrictions/allergies. I had an allergy to fish and they told me I could only get one thing on the menu due to cross-contamination issues in the kitchen. They cook everything on the same grill and couldn't pan fry or sautee either. They also did not know what was in their sauces or marinades in their meat, which lead me to believe they prep their food in advance and wasn't freshly made to order. Cocktails were overpriced for the quality recieved as well. Overall, would not recommend to a friend.

    Great food that is creative, good value, perfect portion sizes, innovative, cute cocktails, good table spacing and surprisingly not loud despite a vibrant dining room. I love how they give aspiring Servers a chance to develop their skills here. Cool T-shirts too! Will be back.

    The street corn and sweet potatoes were out of this world. The mussels not so much, some were fishy, some not, a couple that didn’t open were in our bowl, and a couple were shattered so there were bits of shell in the broth and the ground sausage. And we never received the crunchy cheeseburger tacos, thankfully they took it off our bill. Our server was not very attentive and if she was we probably would have had a second drink each and possibly dessert. This was a let down compared to Buttermilk and Bourbon, both locations.

    I have always loved coming to Citrus and Salt and enjoy their tacos and fun drinks. It is always a bit on the loud side but it makes for a fun night out with friends. Recently they switched up their menu and got rid of many of their taco options. I was underwhelmed with the new menu. Fortunately, they still have plenty of good drink options but in the future may only come here for drinks, not food.

    Drinks were fun and delicious. Service was great. Perfect place for brunch, casual meal, or a special occassion. Food was really good….fresh ingredients. Be sure to get the guacamole and the jalapeño bacon, but save room for churros.

    We made a 10:30 reservation and didn't have anyone come to the table to take even a drink order until 10:50. It was quite loud for a morning and not packed restaurant. I think they would do well to turn down the music a few notches. Note to vegans: there are very few items on the menu you can eat, and the menus are not marked for dietary restrictions.

    Great ambiance and fun drinks. The guac and nachos were amazing! However, my avacado tacos were very bland. I had to ask for them without bacon, because there are no vegetarian taco options unless I made modifications— so the tacos were lacking flavor. Add some more vegetarian options!! Would be back for drinks and apps, but not a full meal.

    Absolutely delicious food, very energetic atmosphere. Only reason why I didn't give this place 5 stars was because the server kind of ignored us for the first 15 minutes after we sat down, didn't even give us water. Although it seems perhaps this place is a bit understaffed so may not be completely the server's fault.

    Shout out the Kelly the manager. Unfortunately 50 Harvard students decided to all come drunk to the restaurant and disrupted three different tables. The students became aggressive towards guests and broke several cups. The restaurant should have kicked them out sooner but Kelly was busy assisting staff. I will say she made up for this dinner as she requested the harvard social chair pay our tab, which he did. She also included dessert. There should be a policy to help staff and management prevent this kind of thing from happening again. I usually have an amazing experience and it is unfortunate this occurred.

    Our party of four was seated quickly for early dinner after work. The ambiance was bright and fun. There was a good crowd for a Friday night, but it wasn’t overwhelming. Service was great throughout. Drinks were well-made. We had the Baja tacos, cheeseburger tacos and beef birria tacos … all came out fast and were tasty! We shared the asada fries and duck confit taquitos … so good! Finished with the made-to-order churros. The mezcal chocolate and vanilla dulce crème were next level. Great place with great food at a good price! We will be back.
