So I celebrated my partners birthday her and let me say Nika our server was the bomb! She was on top of it the whole evening. Along with her helper who had long hair who’s name I can not recall. Citrine has always been a place I like to go to and we will be back for more.
Perfect in every way - coxktails, wine, food, service (James), ambience. A+ experience.
Good food and fantastic welcoming staff!
We cannot wait to go again
The food is unique and absolutely delicious. Very flavorful fishes. You wont go wrong!
Two of us ordered Steak Frites and the steak was unusually fatty. We were able to eat maybe half of it. The vegetable sides and salads were very good. The Paper Plane was not very good but the GTO was a great cocktail. Atmosphere and service were great. Skip the Steak Frites and you’ll be fine!
Our first visit to Citrine. It is a nice restaurant with good food and service.
Food was excellent, we had salmon & white fish entrees. My only complaint was the service was slow, it took over 15 min to get our cocktail! Food came at a good pace, not rushed and well prepared.
Great, as always!
Really nice meal. Food was great and service was great. Only thing, which is not even negative but more of a curiosity, is around the carrot salad. When reading the description one would think the base of the salad were carrots with the other items listed as additional items. Carrots were the not the main attraction which was disappointing. But good flavor but not what we thought.
Excellent brunch menu with a widely varied options. Breakfast potatoes were especially good.
We love treating ourselves to a fabulous meal and Citrine never disappoints. We highly recommend their seasonal entrees. I absolutely loved the squash ravioli.
We really want to like this place as it is in our neighborhood. The food is decent if a bit bland... lacking creativity in menu options, flavor combinations or seasoning... Good ambiance and value for the money.
The challenge is that the service was painfully slow! We waited for an initial visit from our waiter for a good 10 minutes, then no follow up (refills on drinks etc). The check was dropped off without asking if we wanted anything else (dessert?), then we had to flag down a busboy to pick up our credit card since the waiter literally never came back!
Overall we enjoyed our experience at Citrine. Food was very good however, service could be a bit more attentive which should reflect the price of the entrees. I would recommend Citrine for a dining experience however the waitstaff needs some grooming.
Excellent service, good appetizers, very food steak and lamb shank.
Very good for wine lovers
Great food and drink in an urban vibe that feels really comfortable!
Delicious as always. Fillip is so welcoming and friendly. It makes for a great atmosphere.
Our server was very attentive and great with the 2 young children.
The food was just ok. I ordered short ribs and found them fatty and a bit dry. The carrots were severely undercook.
Outstanding! My branzino was delicious! We’ll be back for sure!
Anniversary celebration with family.
We have gone to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing and the service is great.
Delicious food with amazing service! Thank you!
This was our first visit and while the food was quite delicious, the service was not so great. The drink order came back wrong, the fish, which I ordered to be only sauteed with a little clarified butter, did not come with the butter, so I had to ask and wait while the fish chilled on my plate. Usually when customers order fish, a well-trained server will ask if the customer would like a few slices of lemon, this was not done. So, overall....disappointed.
Not worth the price. Halibut special was $34 for a small piece of bland fish. My partner had the salmon which was also bland. Sides were good. Have had better for cheaper. Won’t be back.
The usual excellent food and service. We always enjoy our meals there.
We were there for mine and my daughters birthdays. The staff went above and beyond to make our experience so special!
Excellent service and delicious food!
Celebrating a girlfriends birthday. We had a party of 10. They took excellent care of us. Even called ahead to see if we wanted to move our outdoor reservation in as it was getting chilly. Birthday cheesecake slice for the birthday girl was brought out with individual tastes for each of us. Great night.
Lovely space. They really focus on keeping your water glasses full but the table was so wobbly that we ended up eating amongst puddles. Very friendly server but he forgot part of our order but also forgot to charge for it. The staff work as a team so 1 person brought salads then minutes later another brought out silverware so we could eat them. Steak and whitefish were delicious. As always the cocktail was interesting and aromatic. The specials don’t include prices so it is a little surprising when the bill comes.
My go-to for special occasions. Scottish Salmon is fantastic, Jennifer is a great waitress.
We had a nice relaxed quiet dinner on a Thursday evening. No loud music. We could hear one another.
We were not hurried. We each had a seafood entree that was very good. We eat here periodically and keep coming back. There is a very outdoor area as well.
We came here for our anniversary dinner. Everything was really good maybe except for one cocktail we ordered, but that's because we wanted to try something different. We ate in the outdoor patio and it was lovely. Pisco sour was delicious as was the grilled octopus. My husband had the short ribs and it was fall-off the bone tender. I had the White Fish which delicate and nicely seared. The portions were fairly generous. The charred corn on the side was perfectly charred and the tiny bit of goat cheese gave it a slight saltiness. Had the peach cobbler for dessert and it was so good! Our server was wonderful as well and all the others who helped us get seated and cleared our tables were all tremendously courteous and made our night out just lovely!
The best restaurant in Oak Park, without a close second. Great wine menu at reasonable prices. My favorite local place for simple daily dining or special occasions.
We are always so happy with Citrine! We I’ll keep going for years to come!!
Ask for a table away from the kitchen. Say no to the Brussels Sprouts - undercooked.
Citrine is fantastic! We eat here often and the food is always good and the service is delightful. The entire team is always welcoming and super responsive.
Amazing, as always. Lovely drinks, fabulous food, engaging staff, great atmosphere. It’s our favorite place around here.
Really good food. We sat outside on s warm summer night so pleasant. Wine and apps then s nice dinner
The outdoor patio is one of the best in Oak Park! Nice set up inside and out. Food were great until the main course where we were so disappointed with the Hanger Steak. Thee fake dry Chimichurri sauce were awful and smell. They use to do fresh but this time were dry ingredients. We had this before and it was good, but tonight were bad, but credit need to be given to drinks were great, appetizers (aka) small plates were great.
Service was extremely slow on a Thursday evening at 7pm. We waited 15 minutes for someone to take our order (he can by to ask if we wanted drinks and we were ready to order everything). Food took 45 minutes to arrive. None of the dishes were standouts.
