Unique, Tasty Dishes and a Pleasant Atmosphere. I've always enjoyed Citrus Grill. They have a range of different items, each equally delicious. I especially like the choice of sizes in many items (petite and hearty). This way I can get a lot of one thing, or share many different things with friends. Breakfast is especially good, as well as their wraps (southwest and asian) and sandwiches. Always been a solid restaurant with great food.
Favorite stand by.
I love this place. I've eaten at Citris Grill about fifty times over the last few years. The food is generally tasty and the menu is creative. Their pizza dough is the best I've ever had, and the their salads are fantastic. They serve good beer and good appetizers, and you never have to pay a ton for a big meal.
During the last few years I've had only one negative experience there and countless positive ones. If my wife and I want a risk-free night out, where we know the food will be worth the money, we go to Citris Grill.
Upscale food at reasonable price. The food here is spectacular. It is great for a casual lunch or low-key dinner if you want flavor and presentation. The citris salad is so yummy and the pizzas are great too! However, the location on 33rd was sorely lacking in service. Our hostess acted bothered by her job; I would have appreciated a friendly acknowledgment and welcome to the establishment but she lethargically led us to our table and left before explaining the specials or telling us who the server was. Our server seemed annoyed with my questions about the specials and dishes and he wasn't prompt in our drinks, food or check. I truly love the food but I don't know if we'll be back because I didn't feel valued as a customer. Maybe you'll have better luck-- in any ways I say try it cause the menu is so great!
Absolutely the Best!. This is always my favorite place to go. I love the grilled cheese of the day. Brie and Mango is the best! I like to get the petite citris salad and soup, portions are perfect. The greens are always really fresh- i do wish it was organic though. They do have great martini specials too but they should change up the desserts or run a special sometime. maybe cappuccino cake???
This place cares about making good food...at reasonable prices..
The Draper Citrus Grill is delicious. And it's very reasonably priced.
The food isn't your average ham and swiss sandwich place. Here, they have a grilled cheese sandwich of the day, and it's usually something like "Brie and Mango" or "Goat Cheese and Honey". Their food is different and it tastes like it was thought up from a chef with talent.
Their pizzas are yummy. One has BBQ sauce, chicken, corn, cilantro and cheese. It's very tasty. They have "Sweet Potato and Corn Chowder" and it's delicious. My favorite is their Tuna salad.
And they offer an amazing breakfast on Sunday. "Bananas Foster French Toast" to name one thing. And it's as good as it sounds. The rest of the menu is original and excellent. Go try them.
You will have a fresh, tasty meal for a great price.
Heading Downhill Fast..... I used to be a huge fan of the Citris Grill on 33rd South. The food was great and the service was always friendly, if not perfectly polished. However, over the past year, everything has gone downhill. We've been seated by sullen teenagers who barely say hello, their HVAC is never set to a comfortable level, and they seem to run out of common mixers for cocktails. My biggest concern, and the reason we don't go to Citris anymore, is that the place is filthy. Walls are splattered, floors look dirty and the restroom is so dirty that I'm surprised health inspectors haven't cited them. It used to be such a great neighborhood restaurant. It needs the attention of a good manager to train employees and to ensure appropriate cleanliness and maintenance.
quality and price.
Sunday at the 123000 south location, party of three went for a lunch after a movie at century theater. Had two number 3 salads (meat with greens) mine had a fair amount of meat pieces while my wifes had three small pieces (meat was tasteless and tough we were not asked how we wanted the meat cook). Desert: Followed up with a carrot cake and bread pudding. Bread pudding was very large and of good flavor. The carrot cake was nothing to brag about it was smaller than a pack of smokes in foot print and was of poor flavor. Service was poor and had hoped for better at the time of day we were there. this is not the first time at this location before service was a problem and food preperation was questionable.
Monday at the 3300 south location party of two went for Meatloaf sandwichs. We were first in the door at 1100 AM seated ourselves ordered the sandwiches, Was disappointed meatloaf was not as good and seemed microwaved when arrived at the table. Service was good and enjoyable help make up for the other items. While waiting for our order i looked around the seating area and notice that the floor appeared not to have been clean up from the day before, some food parts and straw wrapping were under some tables. OVERALL RATING OF THIS PLACE HAS GONE DOWN SINCE FIRST OPENING. APPEARANCE, SERVICE AND FOOD PREPERATION ALL HAVE DECRESSED. Was a good meal for your dollar but that has changed.
if melissa farrell still works there .... run the other way. last i heard she was a server there after she got fired from the bohemian. she got fired from her day job because she was always late due to her drinking and drugging. she got canned from the bohemian for frinking on the job.
"Service Stinks" We voted with our feet and left!. We stopped going because the service was so bad and frankly, rude. Gave it another try this past week. Unfortunately, not much has changed. It was slow; we walked in the ?hostess? was wiping down the menus, did not acknowledge or welcome us, said ?2? and then begrudgly seated us. We thanked her and she responded, as she walked away ?no problem? Air conditioning must have been out as it was hot. Sat there, no waiter, sat there, no waiter, got up, went to Porcupine and had a wonderful dinner on there deck. By the way, they actually power wash their deck. CG may want to think about cleaning their patio. WE R DONE going here. We will never go back and everyone we know will hear about this. The owner should try to role model a service environment! Go figure.
FINALLY!! Something Unique in Salt Lake!!.
WOW! How refreshing to see a chef/restaurant that is UNAFRAID to take chances. The food was unlike anything I've had in Salt Lake City. Flavors and ingredients that may or may not sound "right" together are mixed and matched seamlessly into something fantastic. I'm always complaining that there are not enough "local" non-chain restaurants in the valley, but Citris is a welcome diversion from the cookie-cutter places.
The kid who greeted us had an attitude that was something far less than enthusiasm, but it didn't quite reach the level of rudeness, so I guess I won't hold that against Citris.
Our server was perfect. The beers, waters and sodas were offered before the old ones ran out. The menu was varied and very reasonably priced.
We started with the chicken Wings and they were among the best I've tasted in Utah, or anywhere else for that matter.
