    This was my first time dining at Citron. I had heard great things from a friend, so I was excited to try it out. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. The staff was very professional and all three courses of my meal were absolutely delicious. I will definitely be back soon and would highly recommend Citron to anyone looking for a top notch dining experience!

    Waitress went to refill water glass ( I drank out of). As she was refilling my used glass she pour water to the brim. She realized it was too much and then poured some of the water from the glass back into the water pitcher. She then used the same water pitcher and refilled my date's water glass. This waitress did not realized she was doing something wrong and I wanted to bring it to the owners argentine so it could be corrected. I told owner and he just said people make mistakes but the food was good right?Never asked who the waitress was? Very dismissive and condescending. He just brought out 2 new glasses and a bottle of water.

    Citron needs to be ASHAMED of themselves. The portion size of for the price do NOT match!! This isn’t a tapas restaurant! I appreciate quality over quantity but Citron did not deliver on either. Such a shame because the location is cute. You will not get anymore of my business.

    I’ve dined at Citron before, and it has always been enjoyable. On this visit, I brought family and friends for Thanksgiving dinner. The food was excellent, a very good substitute for home-cooked and the serving sizes were generous. The house Fall Salad was flavorful and fresh. It was a very enjoyable evening.

The location was very convenient, and the aesthetic was gorgeous. Our waiter was also super nice and welcoming. 100/10 would recommend it for a fine dining experience.

    Excellent wine, excellent food, excellent service. Citron shines in all categories. We started with a delicious French 75 coctail. Appetizer was delicious ceasar salads. We then had an excellent Bordeaux, 2016 Alter Ego Margaux, paired with our porterhouse that was large enough to share, perfectly cooked to temp (med rare) and perfectly seasoned. For dessert we tried the cheesecake and key lime pie, both were amazing. Dessert wine include Tokaji and 2019 Ben Ryé. The Ben Ryé was a delicious italian dessert wine with tasting notes of dried apricot. This was suggested by the owner and is definitely something I will get again and again so am grateful for his recommendation. This was my first time here and I was truly impressed. Will be going here often in the future for their great menu, phenomenal wine list and great service.

    The evening I had dinner at Citron was very delightful. The food was to perfection, the service was top tier, and the setting was beautiful. The owner of this restaurant was so nice and funny. He walked past my table and conversed with me and my friend multiple times throughout the evening, it was such a pleasure. I can not forget to mention the women who catered to our every need throughout our amazing visit, who’s name is Suvanna! Thank you so much for putting the icing on the cake for our entire evening. You set the vibe girrll lol.

    The first words that come to mind are...OVERRATED. The service was great (Maria the hostess and Kat the bartender were awesome), the food was pretty good (but not mind-blowing as some might have you believe), the setting is lovely...but the prices are absolutely STUPID. We actually laughed when we got the check. Now, to add insult to injury, they AUTOMATICALLY include a 20% gratuity no matter the party size or the check size or whether you're seated in the dining room or at the bar. What if my service was terrible? What's my recourse!?! Now, let's make it even MORE laughable, shall we? They include a 3% transaction fee if you pay using a credit card!! YES, I'M SERIOUS!! Sorry, folks, I own a local small business and while NO ONE likes to pay the 3% transaction fee, it's simply part of the cost of doing business. Two (2) appetizers, one (1) entrée and two (2) cocktails ran us over $190. Quite frankly, the entire experience was insulting. Suffice to say, we won't be returning!

    With exceptional service, an exquisite menu, and a beautiful ambience, Citron continues to be my go-to spot for all occasions. You cannot go wrong with any option on the menu — some of my favorites include the Chilean sea bass, lamb shank, and, of course, sushi as an appetizer. The staff and owner are incredibly friendly and elevate the entire experience from the moment you walk in. Truly, the caliber of this restaurant is right on par with restaurants in neighboring east coast cities, including New York and Miami. I cannot wait to dine again soon!

    Visited to celebrate a birthday, which I indicated in the reservation. There was no mention of it at all. After being seated it took a while for our waiter to greet us and one of the other waiters noticed and came over and finally brought menus. Our food temperature wasn’t prepared as requested but it was still delicious. Our waiter seemed a bit scattered and missed a couple of our requests.

    The food was excellent but the service did not match the pricing. Ambience was nice at first but the lighting kept getting adjusted brighter then darker. It was nice evening but looking at the check at the end of the evening the experience did not match the cost. I don't mind spending if I get a good value for the money.
