A cornucopia of offerrings.
We four ordered fully, shared and enjoyed a tasty experience.
Nicely set, considerate service, "23" level food, great view of the water, and good value.

Service was a bit aloof at times. Food is excellent so that more than makes up
for the service. Wine list is not good. Not enough selections for Cabernet. In fact
the one we picked out they didn't even have. They MUST improve on this.

Nice little french bistro
We have been dining her for many years. This is a nice little french bistro, with nice french wines. Menu is limited but most of the food is good although not excellent. It has a nice view of the pond.

First time and we'll be back
This was the first time we tried Citron - have seen it many times but just never got the chance to try it. I have to say it was a pleasurable experience. The space is great (remember the old "Friend of the Farmer"?), although the back space near the window was very tight because of a large group in the center. My wife's fish special was great, perfectly prepared. I was about to order the Steak Frites when four burgers arrived at the next table - they looked so good I had to try one. Good decision!! One of the best burgers I have had in years...the Hamburger Lyonnaise is amazing - try it!

Steak was among the best!
Had to try Steak Frites in a French restaurant...and boy, was it amazing. I could not imagine a more perfectly cooked (medium rare), well seasoned and delicious piece of beef. Had to be among the best steaks I have had in years. Memorable. And considering the neighborhood has it's share of steak houses, thats a tough statement to make. Russell, the host, is friendly and welcoming, wait staff professional. One of my new favorite places!

Perfect service and food
Bistro Citron is quickly becoming one of our go-to restaurants. I love the fact you can stop by for a burger (amazing) and a beer, or take your time with a nice relaxing dinner. Everything is prepared and seasoned remarkably, and the service staff is polite and friendly ( kudos to Antonio - a real pro). The steak au poivre was a good as it gets, perfect medium rare, juicy and full of flavor.

Roslyn village staple
We have been patrons of this establishment for years . The menu has something for everyone. The wait staff is attentive and friendly . We have had several family celebrations there and have always been satisfied with the results. Lastly they do honor the reservations.

Lots of good choices for all kinds of foodies. Prices are reasonable and portions are more than adequate. Easy to have a conversation without raising your voice. I will definitely go back.

My go-to restaurant
Bistro Citron is my go to restaurant. I have multiple food allergies (soy & vegetable gums) and have great difficulty finding restaurants where I can eat without worry. Even highly rated restaurants, including two in the immediate vicinity of Bistro Citron, use a soy/ olive oil mix for salads and cooking. Any shortcuts like using commercially prepared soup bases and prepared salad dressings are a huge problem for me. Bistro Citron makes their own bases and stocks. They have great bread, a menu with something for all discerning diners and a lovely view of the Roslyn pond. The proximity to the Roslyn theater makes dinner and a movie easy- park once and walk to both.
The noise level can be deafening when full of diners, though.

Loved it, but...
Love the food here, and the new menu is great, a lot of new things to try and some old favorites back on. Had the Frogs Legs as an app, love them, always order them wherever I am and when they are available. Tasty, but very small and way too much garlic. Couldn't taste the frog at all. Entrees were both winners, pounded pork chop was perfect, and my wife's swordfish special was outstanding. Service amazing, real pros!

We made a reservation without
We made a reservation without knowing it was during the restaurant week. The food was good as usual but the place was packed and noisy that 3 of us had to scream at each other across the table in order to have conversation.
I always notice the service is excellent this place except the older gentle man who seats you to the table. He just looks grumpy and not welcoming at all. This was our 5th visits to Citron and this guy is always there, so he could be one of the owners otherwise I don't know who would want the guy to be the front of the restaurant because he has no smile on his face. Never greet with warm attitude.
Other than that, I love this place and would recommend this place to my friends!

We were happy with our food. The wine selection was very good at every price range. We sat in the bar area because it was quieter, but it seems as though our server forgot about us out there.

What a difference a few days makes
Had a less than desirable experience last week here, the owner, who is the host, was rude and condescending. I see why the reviews are so mixed here, when he is there it's a whole different vibe. But the other night Russell was the host, and he's a great guy. Warm, friendly and welcoming. Food was great, baked chicken for two is delicious and perfectly seasoned and cooked.
Now if only the owner could learn customer service from his staff, the place would be great!

Finding a local gem
I recently returned to Bistro Citron because a friend mentioned how much they had liked it. We really enjoyed our dinner. It is a casual, relaxed atmosphere with very good food.

Sunday Prix Fixe Great
I would strongly recommend the Sunday Prix Fixe - a great value! Skirt steak perfect, the salad with pears outstanding. Service was great, Russell's a good guy and a fellow Giant fan!

Having chosen Bistro Citron for a get together with our friends on a Saturday night...
We were expecting the restaurant to be crowded and noisy. We were pleasant surprised that while crowded and noisy...we did not have to wait to be seated.
The wait staff was attentive....the food delicious.
The only negative would be the waiter explaining to my wife and I that the halibut special was the way to go this evening. We took him up on the suggestion.
Much to our surprise...the waiter returned with menus in hand...explaining that the restaurant ran out of the halibut special...but the other fish dishes would most certainly be to our liking.
While correct..it was still dissapointing given the buildup to how good the halibut was to have been.

Awesome Bar Menu
Decided to sit at the bar and enjoy some of the live music, which was great. nice bar menu items, the "Surf and Turf" was great, not a huge portion but reasonable priced and very well made. Loved it. Wife's chicken sandwich was tasty. Service is outstanding!

Good food but the waiters seem to rush through our dining experience.

Lovely ambiance and delicious
Lovely ambiance and delicious food with a view.
But parking was tough, even for lunch on a weekday. Nothing available in the lot right next door.

We come here often, great neighborhood restaurant, food is consistently good, staff always attentive and they don't chase you out. It is a bit loud when crowded, but not terrible.

I do like the restaurant and
I do like the restaurant and patronized it several times. However, last Saturday was not as pleasant as always.
We made a reservation at 5.30pm, but unfortunately one guest was late and apparently that disturbed the Maitre D' very much.
His attitude was rude and most unprofessional.

Consistently good. Use of the best ingredients. Attentive staff. LOVE the bread!!!!
