Discover fresh, authentic French American cuisine in the heart of Manhattan's scenic Upper West Side at Bistro Citron. This unique eatery features a variety of classic American dishes with French flourishes as well as traditional French selections, including cassoulets, bouef bourgignon, escargot, duck confit and open-face grilled tartine sandwiches. Bistro Citron's diverse menu also includes a raw bar, as well as mussels and shrimp cocktails.
Their mussel dishes are so popular, Bistro Citron created a Mussels Monday special that features seven different options all of which are accompanied with pomme frites, fresh bread and wine. The restaurant is open for brunch, lunch and dinner.
Lively environment, full on a Saturday night, able to have conversations, food was enjoyable and the menu had good variety while staying rooted in France. The steak of steak frites was perhaps a bit basic, and the skate a bit salty, but our party of 9 was quite happy with their food overall.
The waiter was grouchy, too many kids and mediocre food
Once again we returned to Bistro Citron. We are regulars dining at least once a week. Scott the Manager is as gracious and welcoming as ever. There is always a smile on his face and some nice words of greetings. The chef Jerry is a fine one indeed. His choices of dishes and the manner in which they are prepared is terrific. I love the onion soup, and he has it down to a science. Tasty, not salty and very flavorful. I am very fond of the Filet of Sole. It is an excellent preparation and is a very ample portion. There are some new additions to the menu and we have been trying them out. We have recommended Bistro Citron to our neighbors on the UWS as well as those who when they come to NYC are looking for a top notch place to eat. We look forward to returning soon.
wonderful - everything - great food, service, wines!!!!
Good authentic French food on the upper west side, fairly priced, with a pleasant ambiance and what appeared to be a significant French population of diners. Must be a good sign !
Food was fifty fifty.
Atmosphere is okay but would be better without cranking up the music when 90% of customers were over age 50.
We ordered the duck confit pate as appetizers. It was okay, not yummy.
Entrees: the porkchop milanaise was outstanding.
The roast chicken was bland as could be. The strignbeans were undercooked, the sauce had no flavor, the skin wasn't crisp. I had to salt the chicken and fries three times.
Great food,portions are good. Quiet conversational spot
This is a neighborhood find. Always reliable and always hits the spot!
Food was mediocre and very pricey for what was presented. Poor choice if wine.
