I don't know who the chef is at Citrus. We have been going there for almost 4 years and it is simply wonderful. Service is great. Their "Chicken Citrus" and their salads and their deserts. Its just really, really yum.

We came here on Valentine's Day and it was fantastic! They had a lovely band playing called "Blue Note" that set the romantic mood. The ambiance and decor was lovely for the special day, decorated in red with flowers and candlelight. They had a set menu and everything was incredible! We will definitely be coming back!

While the new locale is not as "jungle" and private, the space is airier and the menu is superb. Tropical influences on traditional dishes and flawless execution. Marcella and the servers all go above and beyond to make you feel welcome.

I was referred to Marcella (the owner) through a friend who used her for her wedding reception in Costa Rica. She came highly recommended so when I was also planning my wedding in CR, my fiance and I went to go visit CR do take care of some pre-wedding planning, we stopped by Citrus for a tasting course. In total,... More
