    This was our first experience at Citron and Rose. The bakery basket was filled with amazing scones, muffins and biscuits. It was very hard to believe that they didn't have any dairy in them! I would go back just for them. Excellent service, creative menu, and very cool atmosphere. Really a center city restaurant in the burbs!

    We heard this restaurant was top notch so we traveled in 2 hours for this and we were so disappointed the steak was horrible it tasted like smoked and burnt meat, we had to wait 30 minutes until our food came out and than we left even hungrier than we came. Terrible food

    We are so limited with local kosher eateries in the greater philly area and this one found it's niche! Not just great for kosher diners, but on the scale of dinning out- it gets a great mark. I would not suggest going for a special occasion unless you can be guaranteed a private table. The two tops are SO clse to one another that if you are larger than a size 2, you will most likely knock over drinks at the table next to you should you need to get in or out at all during the meal. Also, dont fall in love with your favorite dish, because the menu changes a lot. Its constantly changing menu has helped me to try new things each time I go! Thanks Magerman for seeing the void and filling it :)

    This is the second time I have been to Citron and Rose , the menu is terrific. Every dish needs to be tasted along with every last item on the dish at once. The combination of tastes the chef has put together is a true masterpiece. The waiters and waitresses are friendly and professional , the place is manhattan setting , without the squeeze. A real enjoyable evening at a table for 5. Thank you

    We read a real positive review in the Inquirer, especially about the aged steak for two. We aren't into unique seasoned food that is most of the menu so we ordered the expensive steak instead of the regular rib steak or lamb. We were disappointed in it. It was good but not great, especially for $84. The sides were miniscule. We appreciated the attentive service and comfortable seating though it was right next to the next diners so there was no privacy. The noise level was a bit high as the surfaces were all tile and hard. We will try it again knowing what to order & expect because we like to be able to go to that type of kosher restaurant.

    My friend and I ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and the chicken soup and salmon were both very delicious. My salmon was roasted exactly as I ordered it. The price was steep for the lunch however and ordering from the restaurant's regular menu may be more economic, or perhaps it would cost more for the two courses a la carte. The wait staff was very solicitous and would help a sway a diner to make a return visit despite the price. One amenity that stood out for me was the large and very thick napkins, the touch of an upscale restaurant.

    Heard great things about this restaurant, but disappointed. First off, somehow it took the waitress 20 minutes to come back and tell us they were out of one of the main courses we'd ordered. There were only a few tables filled at the time and it doesn't seem as though it should have taken that long to figure that out! The brisket sandwiches were very peppery - not spicy in any other way, just way too peppery. They had only one very thin slice of meat, along with broccoli rabe, etc. I don't care for overly meat-filled, but this was definitely the other extreme! The interior of the restaurant is gorgeous - too bad the food doesn't match!

    To the Eastern European menu, Chef Karen Nicolas has added flavors of the Mediterranean. There are more veggies (local and seasonal!) featured. The meat favorites remain on the menu. She comes from D.C.'s Equinox where she was named "Best New Chef" for 2012 by Food and Wine Magazine.

    The food was impeccably delicious, and the service highly attentive. My wife's Chicken Schnitzel was perfectly prepared, as was my olive-oil poached grouper. Although the grouper was very good, next time i would probably opt for a dish with a bit more crispiness or texture. This was our second visit, and we will definitely be back, this is now our favorite restaurant anywhere.

    This was my first time experiencing Citron and Rose. It was not a kosher restaurant - it was a restaurant that just happened to be kosher. The food was excellent (in addition to the presentation) and the service was attentive but non-obtrusive. For Sunday brunch, the prices were very reasonable though should I will have to reserve lunch or dinner for a special occasion.

    We chose Citron based on online reviews not knowing what to expect from the food or the menu. We were seated promptly by a very friendly staff. The waiter brought me my wine which was just a bit too warm, obviously not chilled, but he was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was OK, though far from great. Each dish was well prepared but if I can cook it better, then I am not that impressed. Overall, a good restaurant, but I probably won't return.

    With such gourmet quality and unusual flavors, it's hard to believe the meal is kosher. This is NOT your deli but an elegant meal full of fabulous tastes. While there are things that remind you of Nanna's kitchen, when they arrive they taste nothing like your memory, but are elevated to a new level. This has been true of both kasha and falafel at separate meals over the summer. We've brought friends of all faiths to this really terrific neighborhood place that puts kosher food into a whole new light.
