Diner Reviews
  • "We arrived right after 2PM which was the ending of the breakfast buffet, but we were given the buffet menu. Asked the waiter and he said no we could not order off of it--that was ok, but why give us the menu? One person had the beef gyros which was excellent, but it went downhill from there. 2 children ordered the cheese sandwich--the older one got the adult cheese version which was soaked through with the soup spilled on her plate. Since the bread was really thick--soggy cheese sandwich. This was mentioned to waiter, he made no attempt to "fix" it. The tortilla soup was so salty neither person could eat it, this was mentioned to the waiter--he said let me "check" and only returned to the table to bring the check. Other food was just ok!"

  • "We enjoyed a delicious dinner of ahi tuna and Chilean sea bass which we started with a great appetizer called "Avocado Fries" with chipotle dipping sauce (pretty much what the name implies). Our server was great and we enjoyed choosing from a varied wine list. We'll definitely return again. Just wish they stayed open later than 10!"

  • "The food is fair I ordered the Chicken Fried Chicken and it was nothing to rave about, the girlfriend had the chicken tortilla soup which was basically enchilada sauce watered down. After requesting a quiet table twice to have a nice evening they staff proceeded to sit a table of 8 children directly next us. It wasn't Citron's fault the family was rude and couldn't control their kids, but had they followed through on my request it would have been more of non issue. Probably will not return. positive note the avocado fries were intriguing."

  • "My husband and I came in for brunch on Sunday and had an enjoyable meal. The French toast I had was good, but my husband's Southwest burrito was even better. Plus you can't beat $2 mimosas! Great consistent place that is reasonably priced."

  • "I think citron bistro is my favorite restaurant in all of Colorado! The staff is friendly, outgoing and are dedicated to providing a great atmosphere. Live music at least once a month that is fun and interactive. Food is amazing and you can beat their happy hour quality and prices."

  • "Citron was celebrating six years. Special meal prices and jazz for the night made a enjoyable night. The Citron usually has a special event every month which is worth going there for."

  • "I have lunch monthly with three of the women from my church choir. We found the service excellent. Our waitress was very helpful with our selections. The food was excellent whether it was salad, sandwich or entree. We really enjoyed our visit to Citron and will most likely return here later this year."

  • "First night of 4280 week, place extremely busy and wait times were long. However, we chose the Prime Rib dinner over the special offerings and we were not disappointed. Very, very good and reason we went there."

  • "I took my wife to Citron for a date night and was not disappointed. It happened to be the third Saturday so they had live Jazz music. This set the scene as well as thier specials. We arrived early in order to take advantage of thier Happy Hour specials. We had some drinks then decided to order diner and from the time we walked in to the time we left, our experince was great. Will be going back soon."

  • "The food was excellent, perfectly prepared and the prices were very reasonable for this kind of cuisine. The service was actually very good up until the end, when there were two separate mix-ups with our bill. That sort of thing can happen anywhere, and they were good about taking care of it."

  • "From previous reviewers we weren't expecting much in the way of ambience at Citron, so we were surprised at how lovely a restaurant it is. Bigger than the name implies, I was expecting a small bistro but the dining room seemed quite spacious. Lovely fireplace as you walk in, great place to sip a cocktail. The bar was very lively, we checked out the bar menu and that would be a great option for a place to meet friends and have an inexpensive dinner. We were there on Valentines so there was a special menu, I'd like to check out their regular menu. Nice oil/olive tapenade for dipping your bread to start the meal. Every course was very good and we especially liked the creme brûlée Napoleon for dessert. Worth seeking out."

  • "We ate here for Valentine's Day. The service was outstanding. The drinks, appetizers, and dessert were amazing. We had the chocolate souffle cake and the creme brulee, and they were both amazing. However, some of my green beans were a little cold and my steak was lukewarm when I received it. Other than that, it was great."

  • "We were there for Valentine's dinner at 5:30. The food was very good. The service was ok as our waitress was too busy with other diners. Water glasses empty. Did not clear finished plates from our table. The table was for two and crowded with plates. Bummer. We asked for and got more bread however the olive oil dipping sauce was gone and not replenished. She recommend the cheesecake for dessert. VERY nice. Of course we will go back as we have dined there once before and enjoyed our dinner."

  • "Citron Bistro has good Greek and Mexican food. The problem I can see is the restaurant's web photos and description make it appear to be a romantic little eatery but it is really more a sports bar with good food and comfortable seats. I took my wife there for a Valentine's Brunch and we enjoyed the food very much but I was expecting a small romantic bistro, not a big, wide open sports bar. If my expectations had been different--e.g., say I'd gone there to watch a Bronco game and have a bite, I'd give a higher rating overall. We will probably go back because the food is really tasty and the prices are reasonable; but we won't go there for special occasions. It will be for lunch or brunch. ps Try the deep fried Avocados...a unique appetizer"

  • "We were looking for a place to have Valentine's Day dinner and wanted it to be somewhere we had never been before. We were very happy with our choice. It has been added to our regular restaurant rotation and no doubt will be one of our new favorites."

  • "We are new to CO and were looking for a nice restaurant for Valentines Day dinner. The ambiance and service at the restaurant were excellent. When we saw the small menu for Valentines Day we were looking forward to the food, because usually a small menu means great food. My husband ordered seafood and I ordered chicken and were both pretty disappointed in the food. We are definitely not foodies, but for the price of dinner the food was definitely very average."

  • "We have dined here on many occasions and always enjoy ourselves. The food and service are great- we ordered the sea bass, flatiron steak and chicken tequila pasta - everything looked and tasted wonderful. Dessert was fantastic too. We look forward to returning again!"

  • "We were there on a night when it was snowing very hard; the atmosphere was so welcoming with the roaring fire and moderate lighting (i.e., not bright lights). If I hadn't been with 2 female friends, it would have been very romantic! The food was great; two of us had the Berkshire pork chops with sweet/spicy sauce, and the other the lamb shank. the meat was cooked perfectly; for a cold night it was the perfect comfort food. One of us gave the waiter a hard time (teasing) and he was hilarious; funny and took it very well. He even sang her Happy Birthday (at her request). It was a very enjoyable evening."

  • "Had a great dinner with my daughter and a friend. Had the pig roast platter and it was delicious--good portion too. The calabacitas side dish was very yummy. To finish the meal had their creme brûlée and that was very tasty. The live Jazz band made the whole dining experience even better."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The waiter forgot about our table and had to be told by another server that we were sitting there waiting for someone to take our order. He then got the bill wrong charging for two glasses of wine when only one was ordered, but since he forgot to show the tea that was ordered and we didn't want to sit around for him to return, we just paid and left. Food was good, but a number of interesting entrees have been taken off the menu, so selection was limited."

  • "This place was where we sent to for Thanksgiving Day 2013 Brunch and they overdid themselves on EVERYTHING to win us over. I will not forget the FABULOUS, MOIST turkey and all else. I give this place a 5 out of a 5 for special event brunches and a 4.75 out of a 5 for breakfast and lunch. They really take food seriously here and service to match. Now if only they could open a franchise location near where I live in Golden, CO? It's already on my list for an annual Thanksgiving Day outing but works fine for most other occasions, too."

  • "We wanted a nice, quiet dinner together on New Year's Eve. This fit the bill perfectly. The food was delicious and the service was terrific. We didn't feel hurried or rushed, which often happens on these evenings when there are many reservations. We have been to Citron before and have always had a great experience. This was no exception and was the perfect way to cap off 2013."

  • "Food was excellent as always, however, a bit TOO loud! I guess reserving a 7pm spot on Christmas Eve, it should be expected. THe wine deal was AMAZING! A bottle of their "house' wine, which was Salmon Creek, for $10! Can't be beat!"

  • "We chose this restaurant for our family Christmas Eve dinner. We made a 6:30 reservation and were seated immediately when we arrived at 6:30. They had a terrific special Christmas Eve menu along with their traditional menu. The youngsters in our group were happy with the hamburger and slider options while the adults loved the special Christmas Eve menu. Our waitress was friendly and attentive to our needs. The $10 bottles of wine is also a great value. We'll be back!"

  • "I would say this place was so-so for Christmas eve. They advertised a special menu so I ordered from that menu. I asked for my steak to be prepared a certain way (I don't like blood running out of it) and I was very specific about that. When I received it, blood was unning out of it and into my other food. They took it back and cooked it for 2 seconds more. Obviously, it was cooked the way the cook likes his steak, but not the way I like mine. So it was mostly inedible for me. I go there regularly for happy hour - which is great. Really like this place -- but I will definitely pass on dinner from now on and go somewhere that will serve me a steak the way I like it. Service has always been good."
