Best Mexican food I’ve tasted since moving to California 5 years ago. Only issue was noise disturbance from handicapped patron but this was not under management’s control.

During our recent 3-day weekend getaway, we stumbled upon Citra Bar & Kitchen at the newly renovated Hotel Zessa, and it quickly became our go-to spot for nearly all our meals. This place is truly a hidden gem! From the moment we walked in, we were captivated by the modern yet cozy ambiance. The highlight of our experience was undoubtedly the drinks. The Citra Margarita was refreshingly perfect, and my wife couldn't get enough of the Hibiscus Cooler. We also indulged in the Casamigos Flight, which was a delightful treat. Following our server’s recommendations turned out to be the best decision. We tried nearly everything on the lunch and dinner menus, but the Chicken Taquitos stood out as our favorite appetizer—we ordered them multiple times! As for the entrees, you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but our top picks were the Chicken A La Brasa, Blackened Mahi Mahi, and Salmon Salad. Each dish was flavorful, fresh, and beautifully presented. Being gluten-free, I was thrilled to find that Citra Bar & Kitchen had plenty of options that catered to my dietary needs without compromising on taste. Overall, our experience at Citra Bar & Kitchen was outstanding. The revitalization of Hotel Zessa and the exceptional dining experience here is a testament to Santa Ana's commitment to enhancing their community. We can’t wait to return, and I highly recommend this spot to anyone visiting the area. You will not be disappointed!

Pearl has a wonderful outdoor patio area, that extends to the sidewalk of 4th street (a great spot for people watching). The service was warm, friendly, and engaging. Chips, salsa, and water was quickly brought out. The waitress’s recommendations were spot on and fulfilling. The drinks were refreshing and delicious. The entrees’s execution was professional and well balanced between quantity and quality. I highly recommend Pearl for a wonderful dining experience!
