Diner Reviews
  • "I really enjoyed the food and level of attention they gave us. With a party of 7, things can get hectic, but our server was outstanding and the food was delish! Thanks so much!"

  • "The food at Le Citron Bistro was top quality and the price was very reasonable, especially for New Orleans where eating out can be pricey. I highly recommend Le Citron Bistro. It is located in a historic building (1810), so the setting has old world charm and character. The food, however, is modern day delicious. It is worth the trip to the Lower Garden district to eat at this hidden gem. Your taste buds will thank you!"

  • "Fantastic and memorable evening! Tremendous service and accommodation for our 9 person group. We were staying in the French Quarter but didn't have a restaurant reserved within a couple hours of dinner time. We found this restaurant on Opentable but it required a taxi ride. It was well worth it. Tucked away in an industrial neighborhood is this gem of a restaurant in a historic building. The ambiance, friendliness of the staff and quality of the food made it a very special evening. Even though its a little off the beaten path, I highly recommend Le Citron Bistro for any special occasion or even just a memorable meal."

  • "Homemade bread outstanding. Drum filet would have been very good, but was too salty. Ask for no or light salt! They graciously took my entree off the bill."

  • "Nice owner and server, good ambience, easy to access and park, so, overall, an acceptable outing. I found the food, overall, a little uneven. The gumbo and appetizer was good, not great, and the fish entree was salty for my taste. Not saying I wouldn't return, just not on my short list."

  • "We went as they were open. Oldest building outside the Quarter. Menu for Christmas included a dish with duck turkey and chicken. Had very good dressing as side. Also lamb leg and beef tenderloin were enjoyed. The local fresh fish nice too."

  • "Went with the family after reading overall very good reviews of the restaurant. The building is very old and unique and the courtyard is very nice as well. The food was good, but nothing outstanding. The salads were made in advance, and every one at our table got frozen salads. The service was definitely not used to a full house ( I think the waitress was also cooking in the kitchen half the night. Overall, I would give it three stars, but it could possibly score higher on a non holiday night."

  • "Despite small staff, our party of nine had no problem getting served. Owner/chef Devid also helped with serving. His bread pudding from a family recipe is not to be missed. Neighborhood looks sort of industrial and building is non-descript and inside unpretentious bare brick, but good and service were great and the experience satisfying.."

  • "I'm so glad we found this place. It's on the edge of the Garden a District next to the Arts district - not that far from the Quarter - either by a good walk or streetcar. We ate here on Thanksgiving day - a special menu - and it was delicious. The chef is excellent and the wait staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the old building and neighborhood. The bread pudding was to die for!"

  • "We were visiting New Orleans and were looking for a nice place to have dinner. We choose Le Citron based upon the OpenTable reviews are were not disappointed. We could not believe there were so few parties there on a Saturday night. The food was excellent, the wine list while short was outstanding and the service was perfect. We will come here any time we are in town!"

  • "Goin to Le Citron Bistro is an experience. Don't expect an efficient restaurant experience, things can dawdle a bit here. It is very much like any little, family owned bistro you would find on the winding roads along the Cote D'azur in France. The food is amazing and the building is the oldest one in NOLA (so they say). They don't mind if you wander to the kitchen to watch or get up to get your own second cup of coffee. With a full bar and a nice wine list, plan on having a relaxed leisurely dinner experience..."
