For ambience, elegance, taste and service, this is in a league of its own. I've eaten there ten or more times over the years, and everything from the dressing that goes with the (warm) bread to the light salmon entree, to the tables in the sun, and the relaxed but stylish atmosphere make it a dream restaurant, not too fancy...

Went to the Citrus City Grille for Mother's Day. It was a nice buffet with good variety. Omelets and Eggs Benedict were ordered directly from you waiter, which was nice because the eggs were hot when they came to your table. I have been here previously for wine dinners. Those are very good and worth attending.

Citrus City Grille Located in the cute Orange Circle has an upscale warm welcoming atmosphere. The plate presentations match each delicious mouth watering bite. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Had the duck confit with sweet potatoes and butternut squash soup. Split them between two and was very plentiful. They did the splitting for us. $28 for entree I believe. First time I had that portion of duck (the drumstick) and other persons had more breast. Said to have cooked per chefs recommendation. What an amazing dining experience is!

As a solo traveler, it's not always easy to find somewhere this good for a bite to eat. You end up sitting at a bar counter and not much more than that. The service received here at the bar was exceptional. The place is well lit, and easy to have a conversation with your neighbor (I was at the counter... More

This place is amazing. Especially for breakfast or lunch with friends. We have been coming here for years. Great for small get togethers! We had a 10 girl baby shower there. Worked out great! Nice outside seating. Good for people watching.

Citrus City Grille in Orange, California is one of my favorite restaurants in the county. I've been going for years, and the wait staff is consistently friendly and competent. The food is always deliciously fresh, tasty and creative, and we enjoy Sunday brunch on occasion. The only exception to the excellent service has been the hostess. She can be hit-or-miss... More

My favorite dinner spot in Old Town Orange. Always outstanding food and service. I love the Salmon and Pasta both. My husband goes for the red meat and always enjoys. It has a full bar.

We visited with a large group (there were several in the restaurant at the same time but service was still good and food came out promptly). We had cocktails & small plates before our reservation. Everything was very good. The restaurant was busy & noisy overall, but we had a good experience. They also offer outdoor seating, which we might... More

Most go for the interesting antique shops & the charm of the surrounding old homes, but Orange is rapidly becoming a foodie haven. There are many good restaurants & bars, but our favorite is the Citrus City Grille. Hi-tech architecture yet warm, you will enjoy the ambiance. There's also a front open-air patio for people watching. This visit I had... More
