    We ordered a salad with dressing on the side, and it was brought dressed. We ordered tagliatelle and were brought fettuccine. The masala cream sauce on the pasta was too laden with marsala wine, which overpowered what would’ve been the great flavor of wild mushrooms. So the food was just not great, and the service missed a beat.

    Everything was wonderful as usual. We were seated at the first table as you come in the back door and we could smell the bathroom sanitizer. We had the waiter light the table candle and that took care of the smell.

    This is the first time we ate at Citrus City Grille. The service are excellent, management checked in with every table to see if we anything was needed . I ordered a cocktail, my husband a beer. He had paparadelle pasta with a bolognese meat sauce. Pasta tasted fresh &amp; not overcooked. Meat sauce was very tasty. I had a French Dip sandwich. Thinly sliced roast beef (a lot) on an actual sourdough roll. Served with au jus &amp; piping hot fries served a metal cup. When you bit into a fry, you could smell the potatoes! Very nice experience, we will definitely go back soon.

    We booked a reservation for a friend’s high school graduation lunch. We were greeted warmly and seated on time, but after that, the service dropped off precipitously. We waited quite a long time for our waiter to take drink and appetizer orders, then waited even longer for the drinks to be served. The well cocktails were just OK, but the food was excellent. However the meals took forever to arrive! Disappointing because service was poor, but thankfully our meals were great. We would have ordered dessert, had service not been so slow.

    The food was good, but I was disappointed in my Osso Bucco - it should have been fork tender, but it needed a knife to cut and the flavor was meh. The mango sorbet dessert tasted old and was unappealing - thick and almost gooey.

    the server took too long to bring our drinks and she kept forgetting to get the 2 of them. after the 3 reminder she finally sent someone else. It wasn't so busy so I can only imagine what service might be like on a busier day. First time there, food was delicious. I wish the services would have matched the flavor.

    We had a Mother’s Day reservation for 3, this place was completely unorganized and very chaotic. Checked in 30 minutes early for the reservation, and was sat down about 45 minutes after our reservation time. The lines for the food were comparable to hanging out at Disneyland. The wait staff appeared confused who had what tables. I’ve eaten here before and never felt like this. I wonder if this has to do with new management. They could really use with a process management analysis on how to better accommodate this kind of demand on such a holiday. For $50 I could have had a better experience at Denny’s. Very disappointed.

    My girlfriends and I went to have a girl's lunch and it was a bit hectic because it was the day before Mother's Day. The food was outstanding and the waiter was great even though they were short-staffed. I love Citrus City Grille but will try to come on more of an off weekend.

    Too noisy for a relaxing dinner. Management needs to coordinate with wait staff to 1) not bring bread and broom together to front of restaurant and 2) not create a transportation corridor from back of restaurant to front of restaurant, by diners, for staging all service items such as bread basket, etc. a real distraction to dinning.

    The Citrus City Grille is consistently outstanding - great food, wonderful service and a very cozy atmosphere - the noise level is low! The management has instilled customer service values that result in the staff working as a team and as a customer feeling valued and cared for by everyone there.
