Enjoyed the restaurant. The food was good. The service was a little slow with few check-ins. May have been because it was a busy Thursday night.

We've been to Citrus City Grille several times before and love the food. I don't know if this time because they were so busy or if our server was just forgetting to put in our order, but we waited and waited and almost left, but it was Saturday evening and we had our heart set out on certain items from their menu so we stayed. Food was excellent as always, but the service left much to be desired.

Great place food was excellent, servers were super attentive, never felt rushed and best part was that they kept the mimosas and bloody Mary’s flowing.

Food was delicious! I love that they were able to accommodate my large group. Definitely worth the brunch price, especially with bottomless mimosa and bloody marys.

This was a perfect spot for a Saturday dinner, a short walk to the Musco Center where we caught the season-opening show. The food and service were just right to kick off a great evening in Orange.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Citrus City Grille. Due the very pleasant weather, we took a table in the front patio area. Our waiter, John, was very friendly and attentive. Because of the occasion we brought in a special bottle of wine and, of course, we paid a corkage fee. But, to our surprise, John even decanted the wine. We had the prime pork loin chop and the filet mignon. Both dishes were excellent. This is the second time we had eaten at this restaurant and the first time was as similar experience relative to food and service.

The food was outstanding ! We ordered the barbecue ribs with plum sauce on the small plate menu .!! The ribs were the best ribs I’ve ever had anywhere far none . The Chilean sea bass was a special that was awesome . We ordered the crème brûlée raspberry soufflé with Chantilly cream . It was outstanding . The staff was so very nice and did their job to perfection . We will definitely go back very soon . I love the fact they have such a diversified menu that you can always find something you love to eat .

Great waiter, John. Great food, though I had the sea bass a few years ago and I thought it was better a few years ago than it was Friday afternoon, and it’s very noisy. But we’ll definitely be going back!

Very nice restaurant, great service, good food and it was a pleasant surprise that they had a half off dinner items special. We both had dinner and a drink and the bill was only $44. Only negative was all the beer is bottled. Would have preferred beer on tap.

We were seated right next to wall next door. Construction was in progress. Table was shaking and could not have conversation.
At first thought a helicopter was landing.

We were a party of four ... dinner before the show... everyone loved the appetizers and the dinner entrees... from salmon to meatloaf everything was delicious... didn’t have time for the soufflé... but we promised ourselves next time we would... love The Citrus City Grille!

We took the family there to celebrate our sons birthday. The service was great, our meals were delicious, and the food was 1/2 off because of a summer special they were running. All and all, a very enjoyable evening!

I recently spent my 25 anniversary at the Citrus City Grille. From the moment we arrived we were treated very well, and the food and ambience was great. The service was amazing and the whole experience was very romantic. I would recommend it to anyone~

Food was amazing but service was slow. We were greeted initially and then completely forgotten about. Food helped offset the experience and all other times I’ve been here have been better, service wise, so thinking it was an off night.

Really you raised your brunch price to $40? That is far too much! No longer worth it.

We enjoyed our meal, but it just wasn't up to Citrus City Grille's usual standards. The weekend price fixed menu options were a good deal. We will go again. I am hoping this was just a hiccup wit the food prep.

I would recommend Citrus City Grille to a friend who doesn't mind a lot of noise inside the restaurant. I enjoyed the meal and the service, but the sound echoed and was too intense for easy conversation. I might try patio dining next time.
I ordered a beef dip sandwich, and it was a bit pricey for the quality, but the ambiance is part of the experience.
The location is great, right in the heart of picturesque Old Town Orange.
