    Cute place with nice ambience. Drinks were tasty. Got the nachos as an app, which was tasty. Ordered fish tacos, overly battered and made them unenjoyable. We also got the cheeseburger tacos, which were tasty. Service was great. Our waitress was friendly and food and drinks arrived quickly.

    Delicious and well presented food. Difficult to share easily as tapas, but we all enjoyed everything. We ordered almost every menu item....all tasty. We were seated in the black room, a bit dark and moody, in the back of the restaurant. Very private space, presumably used as an event space, though the music was quite loud for the enclosed space. Food was served quickly, but we rarely saw our server after food was on the table. We all ran out of water without having any bottles to refill drinking water for ourselves and no service to offer more water or cocktails. We waited half an hour for the check after we finished our meal. We were glad to have reservations, although we waited 20 minutes to be seated. In spite of the very slow and missing service, we enjoyed our meal and would come again.

    Booked a reservation at opening for my parents coming into town. Presentation was amazing, the decor around the restaurant is so bright and fun, perfect for brunch especially with the cocktail options. Only note would be that the chicken Benedict lacked spice in the shredded chicken and the Mexican iced coffee cocktail fell a little flat. Otherwise, absolutely would dine here again!

    The service was excellent and our server was so meticulous and helpful helping finding menu items that cater to certain dietary restrictions. The food was good but not impressive. The atmosphere is lively and nice. If you are looking to socialize, this is the place for you. For Mexican cuisine, while good, I think you can find similar fare closer to your own neighborhood. If you are closer to the downtown area though and want Mexican cuisine, this could be your stop.

    I went to Citrus and Salt for my birthday and I loved it. The place was beautiful, and we went to a VIP spot (in my opinion, the main pink room is more photo-preferred for an Instagram post because of the decor and lighting) where it was just my group. The music was great, the food was terrific, the nachos and fries are great appetizers, and the pina coladas are definitely a highlight. I had the quesadillas which were so satisfying. I will for sure be going again!

    Always had exceptional food and drink so this may have been a one time bad experience. The tacos especially their version of a Big Mac the meat was dry and not very meaty. The drinks have always been good but tonight they tasty of sour mix even though they only use fresh lime juice. They also placed us in a room usually used for private parties which changed the entire experience because you are cut off from the life and vibrance of the restaurant. Will go back but noted

    This was our first time at Citrus and Salt and we must say it was truly enjoyable. The music wasn't too loud, but loud enough where you can bop to the lyrics. Our server was great and knowledgeable and the FOOD WAS DELICIOUS. We ate everything! The bill didnt break the bank, which we love. Back to the food. The Beef Birria Tacos were on point via seasoning. My friend got the Fish battered Tacos and the fish was a beautiful size! We look forward to coming again!

    I’ve been to Citrus & Salt a few times and have not been disappointed. A lot of places in Boston have the aesthetic, but the food is often lacking. This place has both. I love the sorbet mimosas and the food is always so good with decent portions for the price. Definitely a place I’ll be returning to.

    Probably great for your instagram feed. Not so great for hearing yourself think. Decor is trashy. Food is also trashy, though there were a few things that were cooked with more finesse than we expected. Prices are not outrageous, at least.

    I picked this place because it came up on an internet search of romantic places to eat for anniversaries. When I booked (two weeks prior) I made a note that we were celebrating our one year wedding anniversary. So I wasn’t expecting to get seated at a bar high top, closest to the front door where everyone was constantly bumping into us or our table. We split four dishes. Some were exceptional and some were very average. The drinks were also very average and not entirely as described in the menu. But everything on the menu is $14-$16 a pop including drinks. The music was also very loud which is fine but it’s definitely not what I would consider a romantic date destination. Overall it was fine but I wouldn’t bother getting back into the city to go there again. There are better Mexican food options elsewhere.

    I do enjoy coming here. But the last two times we’ve gone the air is not on. It’s hard to enjoy dinner with friends when it’s hot and muggy inside the restaurant. Not sure if they’ve been waiting for it to be fixed but it was hard to enjoy when you can feel the hot air on you.

    The place was very warm and humid inside. Service was good. Menu was limited with barely any veggie choices. Guacamole and chips were good, drinks okay, but the rest of the menu items tasted average. It will be awhile before we return.
