We were charged on our credit card twice, once with the card and once manually. We called the manager who did not return our call. Once we did speak to him he was to return our call. He has not called. This is not acceptable.
Nice presentation, tasty food, very pleasant ambience,capable staff.
Not as flavorful as we had hoped, but we appreciated the nondairy menu and vegetarian options.
The spring salmon with lentils and peas along with shaved fennel was fantastic. It's an odd vibe here with the host desk fairly non-plussed by the guests. Seemed like we were bothering them. Similar to server. I waited about 7 minutes before the hostess said she'd make sure a server came over. When she did, the server gave off the same vibe; that I was a bother. No one made me feel especially welcome. I wouldn't go back for the service, and might consider for the food.
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and innovative food of this restaurant.
We're from NY and weren't expecting much from an out of town place. But it was
really a beautiful atmosphere and the service was great. One downside, we couldn't
find parking and had to circle a bit. We do not know the area and the two parking
lots behind that strip mall had parking for other stores but not for C and R.
This was not the first time here and as usual it was great. The food was delicious and the service was great.
Food was satisfactory but nothing special. Service was underwhelming. Waitress did not check back to see if all was as ordered or if we needed anything. We ordered dessert which was scheduled to come with ice cream - they were out of ice cream and we were not informed. Owner did remove item from bill but only after we mentioned it.
My wife and I had a nice time, and we like coming to C & R. The few things we think could be improved would be the space between tables. We often find ourselves sitting very close to the table next to us, and being from the community we usually know the people next to us, which makes our time not private. We are happy the menu doesn't change as often as it did, but this past time my wife's soup didn't taste as it usually does (celery root), and our french fries were different than previous times. I think we just would like it to be consistent, so we know what to expect.
Also, I would love to see C & R get iPads for the waiters, to show what the plate looks like for each order. A few restaurants in NY have that, and it makes ordering so much easier.
The food is still excellent, even though the name of the restaurant has changed.
This restaurant was recommended for a dinner with colleagues who were attending a professional conference in Philadelphia. Some of the group did not keep kosher and had been to top tier restaurants in New York City, Boston and other large cities.
From the ease of obtaining reservations to paying our bill everything was flawless. Parking is available. The decor was warm and inviting, comfortable but providing an upscale ambiance. We were greeted warmly and accommodated though our being unfamiliar with the area resulted in our arriving late for our reservation. Our server was knowledgable about the menu items, including the ability to modify some for personal preference or dietary needs. She perfectly balanced attending to our needs with providing the opportunity to enjoy our food and converse at the table.
And the food! Flavorful, interesting, plentiful (without being excessive quantities) and beautifully presented. Wonderful combinations of favors. The truffle fries appetizer are not to be missed. Among the other items that those in our group enjoyed were the carrot ginger soup, the kale salad, the lamb stew, the aged hangar steak and the warm apple crisp desert
My only complaint is that the restaurant is in Philadelphia and I live too far away to be able to go back soon.
I do not enjoy the menu choices and the food is average. I come here so that I can meet my non kosher friends in a nice ambiance where we can eat together.
Good for dinner for two or even a group. Diverse menu. Attentive wait staff. Terrific food.
Lamb stew was tasty but waaaay too salty. And it's a funny complaint, but it was too much stew. They would be better off adding another vegetable to it and having less meat. You get tired of it halfway through. Also, it wasn't hot. The restaurant is a little underheated, so keep your coat with you.
The service was great and the staff seemed to genuinely care about how we liked it.
The restaurant was very noisy when we were seated. We asked to be moved and they did put us at a table near the bar that was significantly quieter. I think the menu is a bit limited - would have liked more choices for appetizer, soups, etc. However, when the manager moved us and I mentioned that it was my anniversary and we'd like to be able to hear each other and converse, she apparently heard what I said because we were given a dessert at the end for free because we had a "celebration". I thought that was very kind. Overall,a nice restaurant - a bit pricey, and not too easy to find parking.
We needed a place to meet some people and C&R provided an excellent atmosphere for that. The service was excellent (including agreeing to photograph us when requested), but the waiter visited us a few too many times. It was a little intrusive. The food was disappointing, especially for the prices.
the menu is inventive and always delicious. Great service, great asset.
Four of us out for a Christmas Day lunch. C&R atmosphere pleasant and welcoming. The kitchen was quite happy to work with our various diet restrictions and substitutions. The carrot garlic soup was delicious, worth going back for, as was the hummas and our main courses: salmon, cod and hamburger. Salmon was cooked perfectly and the accompaning beet and winter squash had the perfect combination of sweet and tart and texture. My husband and I shared the apple crisp with soy milk ice cream. The apples were cooked to the perfect texture and the soy milk ice cream, a first for us, very good. The major disappointment was that one of us ordered a side salad and it was simply a heap of mixed greens. I admit that I missed good 1/2 with my coffee and will remember next time to order tea.
I was pleasantly surprised at everything about this restaurant. The food was delicious,
the service very good, the decor beautiful. No complaints at all, although it was a bit
noisy. I will definitely go back.
Pricey but nit surprising for a kosher restaurant. A gem in the suburbs when it must be kosher. Steaks were very good. Reubens were surprising as the menu said mushroom, but we did nit realize it wasvegan. Tasted good even though niot what was expected.
PLTs were very good. Kid's platter good. Cod, fair and small portion. Took way too long (25 minutes) to get food.
Also, when you are seated, bread should be brought to table, immediately. Also you should not have to ask for salt ever, or ketchup (when you order fries)
best kosher steak house for quite distance. Make sure to get seating in main dining room otherwise a bit busy by the door and bar.
Kosher or not, a pastrami on rye should not consist of 2-3'slices of mediocore pastrami, especially for 22 dollars.
The food was excellent! The waiter made excellent suggestions. It's one of the best meals I've had in a long time!
We celebrated a birthday. Food was exdellent but too noisy
This was the best meal we've had here since the restaurant opened. Really enjoyed the new menu, especially the "Snacks."
This was our first visit to C & R and until they change the variety of the entrées I will not be returning. After looking over the menu I asked if they had any specials and was told, since it was Sunday they served some breakfast dishes all day long and had no specials. There were 4 main courses and 2 or 3 sandwiches. The deserts were probably the high spot of our meal. I left disappointed.
The food was delicious. We were a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed the food. I was glad to see the addition of lower priced options to choose from. Looking forward to eating there again.
A good kosher restaurant but they need to expand the menu
limited menu Drastic change from menu last year, not as interesting
Overall was nice, took awhile to get served even though not too many people there. Good apps, nice steak, and the lamb special was really great, but as above nt hot enough - even got a second one, but again, only warm.
Dined at Citron & Rose, food was great and very complex for being kosher food. it something you find often. However, this restaurant is now C&R Kitchen offering less complex more family friendly food. Had the brisket burger and honestly it was one of the better burgers I've ever had. It was a bday party, and when I reserved online I added a note to bring out a desert with a candle if possible. Dinner was over, I was asked if I wanted to look at the desert menu, I said no... And got the check. Other than that, everything was great!
The steak that I had was excellent, and cooked exactly as I requested. My husband, who is vegetarian, had a portobello mushroom sandwich, which he absolutely loved - a rare reaction for him at a meat-based restaurant. I had the hot fudge sundae with hazelnut ice cream for dessert, which came with meringue crumbles on top. I was disappointed because the meringue made the sundae too sweet; also, I couldn't taste the hazelnut flavor. My husband had a peach cobbler, which he really liked.
Wish you had a restaurant in Baltimore. We'd be there very often.
NO CHARM IN THE DECOR! OUR WAITER WAS SLOPPY AND SOMEWHAT RUDE! HE EVEN BROUGHT 2 OF THE 4 GUESTS THE WRONG FOOD AND THEN ARGUED.THEY HAD A PECULIAR DINNER MENU (1ST ITEMS WERE EGGS AND WAFFLES). EXTREMELY LIMITED DINNER MENU.!
TOMATO SOUP AND TROUT WERE GOOD, SALMON WAS OVERCOOKED,RIB EYE VERY FATTY. PRICES WERE HIGH FOR THE LACK OF QUALITY OF THE FOOD.
Drove fm NJ to eat here. Yum. Gourmet but not too pricey. Nice selection for all kinds of appetites.
We had a very enjoyable first experience at C&R Kitchen. Service was very good without being overly so. Food (fish, brisket burger and warm peach salad) was also very tasty and reasonably priced. Noise level bordered on being too loud - our next visit would depend upon table location.
Pleasant extra-host loaned me an umbrella to fetch my car from the parking lot down the road. He also helped many others without umbrellas to their cars. Very nice and classy move!!
My family had a great time at C & R. Warm, friendly, and elegant - with great food in sizable portions. We'll be back.
This is our third time at the restaurant and the first with the new menu. While everything we had was good, we missed a lot of the more interesting and unusual dishes. Everything we had was delicious but for the cost of the meal we were looking for something special and more unique as had been offered before. We especially missed the pistachio-chocolate bar dessert!
The food was so good and fun to eat. Every small plate was so exciting to eat.
Vus machs da (Google it)? Our earlier visits to the former Citron & Rose were good but far from stellar (fine food, fair portions, mediocre service, nice casual room). It appears they're in the midst of change that may not be all to the good, e.g. the hummus appetizer is now a small cup of ordinary stuff & we were surprised to find so many entrées over $20 at Sunday brunch. Service is still spotty - a hand tried to remove my hummus while I was still eating it (literally). On the plus side, my lentil burger was one of the best bean burgers I've ever had, the tomato soup was beautiful as well as tasty, & my wife's seared tuna was excellent. Kosher or not, fine dining's more than good food & pricey entrées. Decide what you want to be, C&R!
