    I had an incredible experience at Cirtron. From the warm welcome by Rich to the owner's genuine conversation, the atmosphere was inviting. The surprise gift and amazing food made it more than just a dining spot – it felt like leaving as true friends and members of the establishment. A truly humbling experience. Highly recommend you to visit this amazing place!!!

    I WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE I PROMISE YOU WE WERE TERRIBLE. WE ARRIVED 10 MINUTES EARLY FOR A 5:30 RESERVATION ON VALENTINES DAY. MY SALAD CAME OUT 10 MINUTES BEFORE MY LADIES SOUP. THE SALAD WAS TERRIBLE AND THE LOBSTER BISQUE HAD NO CREAM. THE WAITESS DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THE SOUP DIDN'T COME OUT. THE DRINKS WE ORDERED CAME OUT AT 6 BUT THE BARTENDERS WERE DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BEHIND THE BAR. THE BIGGEST ISSUE WAS THE TWO WHITE COUPLES WHO CAME 15 AFTER US, THEY WERE SERVED ON TIME. THE COUPLES FINISHED THERE DINNER BEFORE OUR DINNER CAME OUT. THIS EXPERIENCE WAS THE WORST OF MY LIFE. TWO YOUNG BLACK PEOPLE GOT TREATED LIKE TRASH. IF YOU LOOK LIKE US NEVER NEVER NEVER GO THERE.

    The peach daiquiri is so great it’s worth going to Citron just for that. However the tuna tartare was fabulous and the spring rolls are super tasty. The salmon was the best version I’ve had in years and my wife raved about her steak. Our server Rich was terrific too. All around it was a perfect night out in a beautiful restaurant.

    Maybe the worst meal I have ever had. Expensive, food was terrible. Steaks were poorly cooked. Crazy expensive. Charged a 3% service fee for using credit cards on a $350 meal. Both me and my girlfriend thought it was awful. Do not go here.

    A perfect meal. We started with the mussels. Probably the best I’ve ever had. My steak was fantastic and my wife’s Sea Bass was terrific and big enough for me to eat about half of it. The sides were all really good too. The owner Charles recommended an excellent wine that I took a picture of so I’ll be sure to order again on our next trip to Citron. We split a piece of cake to top off a truly perfect date night!

    Citron continues to be best in class, serving fabulous food — including the best veal chop! Elegant and beautiful atmosphere with top-notch service. I enjoyed a classic shaken daiquiri and we shared a delicious 2010 Bordeaux. Looking forward to my next visit soon.

    We were the only table in a brightly lit, cavernous dining room. There was a large private party in the other half of the restaurant that sounded like a night club. Our server, while pleasant, was harried. While our food was good, it wasn't great. It ended up being a very costly evening for a very poor dining experience.

    You know. This place was beautiful. The waiter Andrew was amazing. I paid $450 for two including tips. It wasn’t a $450 meal I’m sorry. I’d go there again for half the price. The owner was there and was very attentive to everyone. That was nice.

    We went for NYE. Food was just ok. Found a hair on my plate of lamb chops. Chef didn’t come out to apologize about hair being in my food and neither did the manager. I also asked for my lamb chops to be cooked medium rare and they were rare. In enjoyed the sushi and drinks over everything. Next time I will just go to bar and order sushi and drinks.

    Citron very may well be one of the best restaurants in Maryland… every dish exudes class and flavor without being too pretentious. It brings NYC Michelin star vibes down to the Baltimore/Towson area with a wine list that could match some of the best restaurants out there. We look beyond forward to our next meal at Citron and can’t wait for that amazing sushi!

    Celebrating my husband's birthday. Server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The food was exceptional. My husband is a steak guy and he descirbed it as being "Butter". The restaurant had a great vibe and felt inviting. The owner greeted us and check on us throughout dinner. Overall a great night. I would highly recommend.

    Have eaten here many times over the years, always delicious fresh and thoughtful food. Chefs know what they’re doing. It’s not easy to get authentic flavors mingling like that but they have a magic touch. Sea Bass and Salmon entrees are the best in Baltimore. This time we sat in the fireplace room - what a treat!
