As part of my birthday surprise my husband got tickets for a concert at the Schuster Performing Arts Center. We ate at Citilites before the show. My husband ordered the braised beef but had to return it because it was cold. A woman at the table next to us had the same experience. It came back warm, but my husband... More

We have been season theatre ticket holders for years. We always have dinner with our friends prior to each show. Tuesday, we had dinner at Citilites for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. Two people ordered the Filet Mignon and raved about it. Another person had the fish and thought it was very good too. I ordered the pastrami... More

This place is in the Schuster Center. It looks a little like a fine dining. It is pretty pricy with inside seating in the restaurant or outside seating in the theatre lobby which was kind of interesting with all the windows. Burger was half a lb and pricy. It was above average in taste but not much toppings. Not worth... More

Always tastes great and our server was wonderful! Our day seeing a show isn't complete without lunch or supper first.

To avoid the rush, traffic, and other woes of going to see a show downtown this is a good place to take advantage of it before a show as it is inside the theatre. The food and drinks were good however they were not $100 good for a couple. Server was very friendly and in fact tried to talk me... More

We made a reservation for this restaurant a MONTH ahead of when we would visit and still got a table NEXT to the kitchen and virtually NO service. The kitchen was overwhelmed with getting the meals out before the performance at the Schuster Center- and THAT IS supposedly their job. This is not a news flash for them to DO... More

Wonderful place for lunch or dinner right before a show at Shuster Center. The food is very good. I especially like their salads. Also can't go wrong with the grilled cheese and tomato bisque.

We decided to eat at Citilites prior to a performance of The Lion King. We were promptly seated and our server was excellent. The atmosphere was nice and it was great being in the lobby of the performance venue. However, we did not enjoy our food. Two members of our party ordered the filet mignon. Both were not cooked as...

We ordered the ton burger. 7 ounces. It tasted like they had sliced a piece of meatloaf off and put it on a bun. Very bland. We did not want a big meal before going to Victoria theater.

We have never eaten at Citilites prior to seeing a Schuster Center show. My friend and I had reservations for a Friday evening. We were seated promptly. I noticed that the coat rack was already full, and there was no place to hang my winter coat. The serving attendant came over right away for our drink orders. I selected a... More
