I had dinner there twice before shows. Make sure to make a reservation. Food is very high standard. Good service.

We dined here before a show at the Schuster Center. I had the shrimp and grits. It was very tasty and the portion size was just right. The others in the group had lamb chops, grilled salmon special and a grilled chicken salad. The food was very fresh and tasty. Dessert was an Encore (fudge brownie with peanut butter mousse). It was divine!!

Citilites at the Schuster Center of Performing Arts is a MUST. For a snack and drink or a meal before a performance, it can not be beat! The atmosphere is upscale, sleek. The staff is knowledgeable, sophisticated, and friendly, warm. Citilites is an intelligent, pleasant choice when attending a performance at the Schuster. Before Tosca, a group of us met as an "ice breaker" there to meet and greet. The staff was respectful of all of us and our choices, encouraging the experience. Before Shrek, three generations enjoyed a delicious dinner. The bisque is an experience in itself, any entre is presented beautifully and is absolutely scrumptious! I would recommend making a reservation. You will be greeted with respect, a smile and be made to feel welcome! It is the closest restaurant that I have found in Dayton, to the Grand Tier at Lincoln Center in New York. Citilites, staff, chef...take a bow!

Decided to give Citilites a try before War Horse. Heads up concerning reservations. Call well ahead for reservations. Called two days before and they were full except for 3 hours before the show. Didn't want that. To their credit they gave me a call back to say that they could accommodate us. Parked in the garage right across the street (very handy). Not a huge menu, but the food was very good. The portion sizes are interestingly variable. The butternut squash was sample size but my date's shrimp & grits was enormous. Service was quick. A little pricey but often times convenience is an equalizer. That is the case here. Bottom line: eat here prior to a show.

If you are going to a show at the Schuster center this a great place to get dinner. Reservation are a must on these nights since they are always booked.

I have eaten here multiple times and the food is always of the highest quality and flavor. The presentation is of the highest standards.

This is one of the best restaurants in Dayton. With its location inside of the Schuster it is the best choice before a show.
