    ive been to citrus several times, its become more of a place to go when i dont feel like being creative. i live in the area. i sat down at 630 with one other person, it was very empty and we got our menus right away. after less than 2 minutes, the waitress came over and asked for our order, we werent ready yet. but then she asked 3 more times after that and even interuppted our conversation! big pet peeve. i had to ask for the warm salsa and chips which im not sure but i always thought it came right when you sat down. the food was good but the staff is pushy!

    Fair fare; nothing sublime; but always fun

    A 10+ years UWS survivor that's a solidly above-average, fun-vibe (casual, busy enough to be not dull) neighborhood-y place with fair fare, an impressive tequila selection, above-average design, cavernous dining room acoustics (i.e., when crowded, it usually very loud), workable decor, clean and spacious bathrooms, and serving and host staff that are reliably friendly--though the quality of individual servers can vary quite a bit. The dishes are Southwestern inspired, never spicey (for better or worse), and tending towards the sweet and--well--citrus-y. (The tuna dishes can be overly sweet, for sure.) The steak is solidly above-average and never--in my experience--a risky choice, though, again, some will find the sauces too sweet. Virtully everyone I've been to Citrus with can't keep ther hands off the chips and salsa, the latter of which is, not surprisingly, sweet-ish compared to most salsa, but not too much so, and pretty addicting. The margaritas are a big part of the restaurant's niche. I'm enough of a mixology snob to virtually never order a frozen margarita (I've certainly had them ordered for me or handed to me at enough gatherings and casual restaurants in my life), but the frozen margaritas are Citrus are genuinely exceptional. Potent, sweet-but-not-too-sweet, and thick. With rare exceptions, the food always comes quickly. The value is best with the entress, not the appetizers or desserts. I know that there's more than just tequila-consumption that's contributing to the fact that though there is absolutely nothing about Citrus that's sublime, I've always had a good time there. Citrus knowns its niche and works it well.

    great margaritas, middling food

    the margaritas are show-stopping, some of the items on the menu are pretty good (e.g. the wasabi-mashed potatoes) but others are greasy, oversalted and overpriced. service is ok if it's not crowded and abysmal if it is. atmosphere is tacky yuppies but after 2 drinks it's easier to blur them out. fresh & delicious margaritas though.

    Love it!

    The service is okay but the food is soo good. I love sushi. I'm very picky. But I go there just to eat the Ultimate sushi entre...it has three dipping sauces which are to die for! The service isn't all that great but the food is delicious. I reccomend it.

    Never a bad experience!

    I have been a regular at Citrus for many years and I have never had a bad experience. The sushi is always the freshest. It may take a bit longer to make, but that means it isn't sitting already cut to be thrown on a plate. The waiters are always friendly. .....and OMG! The margaritas!

    Offensive Service

    The quality of service is lower than I've seen anywhere in New York. Their bartenders dressed and acted like two Meatpacking District bouncers who were incredibly dismissive of my friend and I while we attempted to pick up our take out order. I've also eaten inside the restaurant and the waitstaff is just as poor. Their menu has some interesting items, but it's definitely not worth dealing with this establishment's employees to eat here.

    Not recommended

    Went to Citrus for the first time with my family for my brother's birthday on a recent Saturday night. I was very disappointed in the service--waiter acted as though he was doing us a favor, food came out at all different times, they were out of a number of items. The food itself was not good, particularly for the price, and I'm not someone who typically complains about restaurants so long as they show some effort. The place was loud and I found the atmosphere uninteresting, despite how busy it was. I've walked by this restaurant many times with the intention of trying it and will not be returning.
