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.

Best Sunday brunch around... every thing you could possibly want ... plus made to order eggs Benedict with a perfect Hollendaise sauce ... and omelettes to your order... seafood, prime rib roast ... ham... bbq ribs! Plus champagne... Bloody Mary’s ... go enjoy... it’s on the approved vendor list for sure. Service is excellent!

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.

Went there for fathers day brunch right at opening, the hostesses did not seem prepared for the amount of guests that had reservations at opening, 2 parties were seated before us although they checked in after us... Took too long to be greeted by a server. Good was delicious for a buffet

We moved away from Orange about 2.5 years ago. We came back for a visit and it was unanimous that we go to Citrus for dinner. Great food, martinis, and service.

This is the embodiment of a tourist restaurant. The place is extremely big with a noise level to match. The food is the kind you buy at wholesale outlet and the price is if it was made by a top chef. This is not what I expected from a restaurant in the City of Orange.

Food good as always. Waitress was very accommodating, taking care of our special requests easily. My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass - was very good. I had the Swordfish special - it was excellent. And, of course, the Grand Marnier Raspberry Souffle - the best in OC! Definitely on the expensive side, but well worth it.

We love this place. When it’s crowded, it’s noisy, so we try to go during the off-times. Food is great, service is friendly and professional. They’re happy to accommodate special dietary needs.

Love the location and vibe. I was there on an early Friday night for dinner with 5 family members. We have all eaten there before. Tonight, we ordered the calamari, salmon, filet, pork chop, chicken and shrimp and scallops. While the calamari appetizer and my salmon were very good, everyone else’s meal was way overcooked. The fillet, pork and chicken were so tough and tasteless. The side dishes were tired and uninspired. The sweet potatoes with the pork were charred. It was an expensive and sad affair. The service was very good. The decor is lovely and classy, but the food needs some serious help. Although we have been there many times, I’m afraid I cannot afford to go back.

One of my favorite places to go for a nice dinner near the Chapman University campus. Excellent food, good service and a nice wine list by the glass.
