This was my first experience at a Kosher restaurant. I ordered the fish and chips and was
satisfied. Not wowed, satisfied. The other two in our party ordered the rib-eye steak. I must admit that had I not known that they ordered steak I wouldn't have been able to identify the meal. They liked it.

Had a reservation. Plenty of seats in main dining room but were taken to a high top in the bar area next to the "back door." Took 20 minutes to be waited on first time. Virtually every steak and chop was "we're out if those for the night" - pushes us to hamburgers which were good ... but didn't go there for a burger. Servers were very pleasant once we started getting service.

In general, everything was very good.

It was first dinner service. We had an unexpected 3rd guest who was accommodated without problem.

Across all 3 meals, the seasoning and proper level of cooking was uneven.

The salmon with chestnuts entree was perfect as was the tempura broccoli and cauliflower with garlic aioli. The chicken with farrow was overcooked to the point of the chicken being dry.

The French onion soup was tasty but too heavy on the salt. It could have been greatly improved by adding one of the many available parve cheese slices to give a more authentic French onion soup.

The Tuscan Farrow salad had next to no dried cherries which would have balanced the flavor. The chicken and mushroom ragu had good flavor but was again overcooked. Cocktails were excellent.

Overall it is a good value with very nice ambiance and service.

Everything was delicious. I had a couple of appetizers and dessert along with drinks.
My friend really enjoyed the duck and the salted caramel ice cream (non dairy).
We always enjoy coming here.

Horrible service. I took my friend for her 30th birthday. We were rushed throughout the entire dinner. We weren't finished our meals and the waitress was already asking for desert. Mind you, google says they are open until 10:00 PM. We were told they are closing at 9:15, "place your desert order now if you want desert" (Our kitchen closes at 9:30). We arrived at 7:30. We are all nurses and are coming from work. I wrote on my invite that it was celebrating a birthday dinner. No candle or happy birthday was provided even after our desert came out with our dinner. For all that I wouldn't have even ordered desert. We were rushed out like we were a bother to the staff. I will never return.

When I arrived I was requested to leave the table at a specific time. While I understand that tables could be booked, I consider that I should have been informed in advance, at the time of the reservation, that there was a specific time to leave the table.

To order a martini and the glass is only three quarters full didn't start me off to happy. One person ordered ribs and they had to be sent back because they were dry. Another ordered wings that were dry and tough. Must have been warmed up. I must say the burgers and fries were good. But I expect more from this establishment.

The food was so incredible and they have the most enjoyable aesthetic. Great vibe, from the music to the decor. Their burger was the best I’ve ever had and I recommend anything off the street menu. Highly recommend Citron and Rose.

This restaurant is excellent! My friend and I had good food in the outdoor tent, which was well heated and kept the cold out very well. I really enjoyed the French Onion Soup and the Fish and Chips. Very nice service. Highly recommended.

Excellent food and really pleasant waiter who was very helpful and attentive. A bit pricey even though we ordered on the lower end of the menu but everything we had was delicious.

There is a massive tent with heating which seemed pleasant but we went early and our family was seated by ourselves in the bar area which was quiet and nice.

They have a great outdoor area underneath a tent. We have eaten there multiple times and the temperature is fine even now.
Food is delicious - we always get the wings as an appetizer and enjoy their steaks or street food menu which includes different tacos. Definitely recommend.

Went out with another couple for 'date night' and had a great time. We ordered one of everything off of their 'Street Food' menu, and it was the perfect amount for the 4 of us. Lots of variety, everything was amazing. Great cocktails, too, and we brought a wine to open (corkage fee).

Only one waitress taking orders. She was very kind & helpful but was obviously stretched thin. due to the amount of customers there should have been at least 2. We enjoyed the fish special of the day which was cooked to perfection and plated well. The rest of the food was so-so. Some dishes tasted rewarmed/fried.

The menu listed on this site is not the menu they currently have. It seemed like none of the servers knew whose table we were. Flatbread was too soft. But the food wasn’t that bad really just maybe a little pricey- but thats probably because its kosher. I just thought the items were too all over the place and I mean I don’t need 4 separate menus of so many things ie: “streetfood”, full menu, cocktails/beer, wine, and also a ‘smokehouse’ (or something like that) menu. They also let a fire die out and fill the tent with smoke for half an hour. I know covid times are crazy and everything is more difficult now but maybe simplifying the menu and instead of the manager walking around to each table to chat-he could help run food- stoke fires and help servers more since they have tables both inside and out.

This was the first night they were offering outdoor dining, so they had a few kinks to work out (like smoke wafting into the tent from a bonfire they had outside for guests waiting to be seated). The staff was friendly and the food came out promptly. we ordered a sampler appetizer that was very good. For the main course, we had two 8oz steaks for $46/piece. They came with a baked potato, grilled veggies and a small personal salad. I think it was a little pricey for the size of the steak. We ordered one rare and the other medium. They both came medium rare. For dessert, we ordered pumpkin cake which was large enough to share and came with a very small scoop of pumpkin ice cream. It was delicious.

Fantastic date night with my wife. Service was spectacular, and the food was really really good. Had the French 75 cocktail, which was amazing, and we both got the Duck Confit, but I changed mine from the Pesto Risotto to the grilled veggies to go with it, which they substituted without any hiccup.

The staff was warm and friendly despite our server not being familiar with the details of the menu. However the most egregious aspect of our dinner was the
surprise that came with the 16 oz chef steak surprise; a $145 charge! ( $185 with tax and tip for just that mediocre steak!) When we received the bill and questioned the charge, and pointed out that not only was the price not listed on the menu, but that our server neglected to mention the expensive price associated with this steak, we got nowhere.
They advised us to call Michael the manager and after 3 messages we have yet to receive a return call.

This was really nice inside, the ambiance was lovely. Very quiet place. A Jewish establishment so no dairy and meat together. Our server wasn't that great though. She knew nothing!!! No drinks, no foods she just lacked alot. And the food was ok, they didnt have alot on the menu available. Those smoked wings were great tho!
