In the News
At the June 22 State of the City event, held at the University of Redlands Orton Center, Mayor Paul Foster presented Beautification Awards recognizing buildings or facilities within the City of Redlands that capture outstanding landscape, architecture, cleanliness and curb appeal.
Nabil Ayoub received a Beautification Award for his beautification and adaptive reuse of the historic Heritage Hall building.
Heritage Hall, also known as the Seventh Day Adventist Church Building, has been a landmark fixture in Redlands for over 96 years. It is well known amongst local residents for its distinctive building style and triangular lot. Erected in 1922, it has changed hands many times, being utilized in countless different capacities, including a church, the Odd Fellows Lodge, a reception hall, and now the beautiful Olive and Citrus Restaurant.
The historic building is a cross-gables, one-and-a half story, stuccoed structure with some Craftsman style elements. The building underwent extensive work involving the replacement of the roof, the construction of a large deck for outdoor dining, and the installation of trellises fronting Olive Avenue. Restoration and repainting of the building was completed in earth tone colors. The interior was also renovated to create a more open floor plan, suitable for its new use. The end result, created a Craftsman culinary masterpiece for all to enjoy.
For these reasons, we are honored to present Nabil Ayoub with a beautification award in recognition of his adaptive reuse of Heritage Hall into the elegant Olive and Citrus Restaurant.

Everything was delicious: roasted octopus, lamb, bass, chocolate ganache cake, butterscotch budino! A couple of drinks & red wine too.. Life is Good.

Dawn and I left the kids for the evening for the first date night in ages. Having been in the business, I don’t like to pay up for things I can make at home or poor attempts at being “trendy”. Olive and Citrus is the real deal. The food quality is excellent, with impeccable respect for the ingredients. We had grilled octopus (perfectly prepared, tender), a peach salad (ripe, sweet local peaches.... ever so rare) and absolutely perfectly prepared salmon. Highest quality (nothing like you can get at the grocery store) and cooked perfectly. I will send back a $35 fish dish without a second thought if it’s over cooked. This was perfect. Drinks were not only great they were quick. I didn’t feel the need to order the second after the first was placed in front of me. Friendly bartenders who knew what they were doing and why. Having a place like this down the street is a privilege. Some things are very much worth the price.

I like that they're using stainless steel straws! Other restaurants should follow suit!
