Terrific meal with outstanding, friendly service. Snapper and the hogfish filet were wonderful as were the Oysters. A must for those who enjoy great food, attentive service in a nice setting

The lobster salad was good but pricey. The ice tea was kind of weak. Overall not a bad lunch though.

I THINK WE'VE DISCOVERED A GEM! Citrus Seafood does seafood right. From the perfect clam chowder (not too thin or thick) to the crab cakes (whole lotta crab, not a lot of filler) to the scrumptious lobster tower salad to the tasty shrimp scampi, this restaurant got rave reviews from everyone at our table. And the owners, Jay and Paula, treated us like long-lost friends. Citrus Seafood is an example of why people love Naples. We'll be back!

I would highly recommend this restaurant! Everything my husband and I ordered was outstanding. We both got the Hogfish that was wonderful and fresh. Really enjoyed the Caesar as well. Nice wine list too and the service was outstanding! Can't wait to go back.

Citrus is one of our favorite dining places in Naples. The food is always delicious, the service is friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxing. A “go to” place for casual lunches or more special dinners. Our lunch there this time did not disappoint!

Very friendly, good service. However, the Snapper for my wife was without flavor and on the small side.
My platter with the variety was good and better than hers. May not come back, as expensive for the meals.

The appetizers were good. The wine list was good. The server was busy, but kind. My scallops with forbidden rice was excellent. My husband's hogfish was bland.

We are locals who hadn't heard of Citrus but read reviews on Open Table. We made a reservation for a birthday dinner that turned out to be exceptional. The owners are warm and gracious, the service attentive and efficient and the food, excellent. Appetizers, salad and entrée of whole grilled hogfish were perfectly prepared and desserts were perfect. The crème brulee was one of the best! Great ambience, quiet and charming environment with outdoor seating as well. We will certainly return and would highly recommend if you are looking for a REAL seafood restaurant of quality with no hype and the freshest possible menu items.

Everything about this visit was delightful. Roland, who greeted us, explained the menu, and took care of us, is charming, articulate, and informative. The dinner was delicious, served well, fresh; presentation was extremely pleasing. We had Chicken Pear Salad, Scallops Entrée, and Crab Cake Entrée. Luscious. Finished with two Cappuccino and Blood Orange Sorbet. We know we will return!

Made note on open table that we were celebrating a birthday and told both owner and server as well, birthday was never acknowledged - nothing!!! For the prices they charge for mediocre food they could have at least comped a dessert with a candle. Just moved to the neighborhood we won’t be going back.

Friday the 13th was unlucky at Citrus Seafood. Appetizers were fine and so was the wine. My dinner companion fishes in the local waters around Naples and we both cook fresh fish often. The attentive waiter explained the features of hogfish and triple tail and we ordered. The hogfish was overcooked and the triple tail was severely overcooked and dried out. The waiter took the dishes and came back and apologized he would be unable to serve us. What? He said the cook (chef?) and owner did not think the fish was overcooked. We asked to speak to the owner and Paula came over. She said “I don’t want to waste product to make the meal over.” No offer to make another dish, only to bill us for 2 bottles of wine and appetizers. In all my years dining in North America and Europe, this is a first. We left the restaurant and ended up a few short steps away at Truluck’s with an awesome piece of sea bass and arctic char for my friend. We give two very big thumbs down for the food at Citrus Seafood.

The owner greeted us y our names as we came in and immediately seated us. He was friendly and engaging. Our waiter was very personable and professional. The triple tail and hog fish was fresh and very well prepared as were the sides, and the sorbet!!! Pink grapefruit as well as blood orange. What a great finish to a wonderful meal.

We love Citrus! The owners are great people and the food is outstanding.
We are from Maryland and love our crabcakes. Haven't been able to find a good crabcake since
we moved here . But finally we were introduced to Citrus Seafood.
Best Crabcakes in all of Florida!!! We highly recommend going to Citrus, you will not
be disappointed!!

No doubt the best eatery in SWFL for seafood as the owners keep a tight rein on quality and absolute freshness. Menu was created to please varied tastes and even features an outstanding wagu steak item for discriminating carnivores. Wine list is carefully constructed as well. Prices are extremely fair, too. New? Ask your server to speak to owners Paula or Jay for their guidance. They will never steer you wrong as they want you to join the ranks of their loyal returning customers.
