Another fine meal at Citron. This dining room might be the most comfortable in town. No tiny, hard chairs here and the tables are far enough apart to have a private conversation. The staff could not be friendlier and the food consistently delights.

The tomato salad was delicious and the Chilean sea bass was perfectly prepared. My wife thought her salmon was outstanding. Service was excellent.

Prices were ridiculous for what we ordered. Two salads and two drinks and one piece of protein to the total of $83. Really

Citron has turned into our “go to “ restaurant. This evening we wanted to sit in the bar with friends and have a more casual meal. The bar and lounge are as beautiful and comfortable as the more formal dining room and you are free to order off the fine dining menu. My Wagyu burger was exactly what I was craving and perfectly prepared and my wife’s Chilean Sea Bass was beyond delicious, which explains why she refuses to order anything else regardless of where we sit. Combined with a lakeside view and friendly, mature service, Citron is easy to recommend.

We had great service and the food was delicious however the pricing was a little too high (especially for a vegetarian) for any meal other than a special occasion.

I’d been wanting to go to Citron since it first opened. I finally got the opportunity the other day ... and was quite disappointed. The best things about it were the service, and the view of the lake. The menu was limited (entrees and side dishes), and the chicken was extremely bland.

It was our 42nd anniversary and we were told by the staff several times "Happy Anniversary". We were surprised when our server brought us two glasses of champagne. The food was excellent. After our meal our server brought us a very nice desert to share. We had a very nice anniversary.

We went to Citron to celebrate our anniversary on Friday night. From the second we walked in, everyone was so welcoming and accommodating. This was our second time at Citron and both times we went, Chaz greeted us at the door and asked us which part of the restaurant we wanted to sit. We opted to sit outside with a view of the quarry. Our server, Ryan, was wonderful. As the night went on, it started to get chilly. We stayed outside but a couple diners asked to be moved inside and they quickly accommodated those people and made sure everyone was comfortable. The specialty cocktails were amazing and my steak was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend Citron!

Citron is one of the best restaurants we have had the pleasure to visit. The ambience is incredible especially with the lake view from the deck. The food is fabulous. Charles and his staff made everything special for our anniversary. Highly recommend Citron to be on everyone's must visit list.

What a great experience! The food.. Amazing. The service, top notch! Very nice atmosphere for girls night or date night. Only issue was, it can be a tad loud from the LIVE band.

One of the most disappointing meals we have had in a long, long time. VERY poor value for the money. The entrees are overpriced and so-so quality. Service was underwhelming (one example: the server swept my expensive drink away without asking if I was done with it!). To add insult to injury, we made the mistake of going when they had a pretty lousy band perform 70s and 80s hits at much too high a volume--honestly, we've heard better bands at dive bars. The Baltimore area has too many good restaurants to waste your time and money on this place.

I love ambiance and the patio section of the restaurant. The shrimp rolls were amazing. For my entree I had the Divers Sea Scallops which were equally great. Our server was great. I will definitely return for a date night with my husband.

As always, the food and drinks were great and the view and location are beautiful, and Charles is a warm and welcoming host. However last night the service was awful. The food was very slow in coming out and when it did, half of our meals (pile bowls) were missing the dressing. Part of our order was never delivered, although did end up on our bill. Our waiter said it was due to the chaos of moving people out of the rain to indoor tables. But that should not impact the kitchen. The waiter could easily have mitigated any negativity by offering another round of drinks or a quick appetizer on the house. But he did neither. Disappointing service.

My husband and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary this past Saturday night. We sat at a table overlooking the water, and there was very little noise. We were able to hold conversation without interruptions from the surrounding tables. The servers were personable and had a good sense of humor. The food was delicious and I would highly recommend eating here. It was quite costly, but worth it!

The food was perfectly presented. It was delicious. I wish they had more on their menu but what was on their menu was all good. I had the crab cake enter and the spring rolls appetizer. The shrimp spring rolls aren't like others. The shrimp portion in the spring rolls are worth it, not like other restaurants that have super small shrimp inside. The crab cake was definitely comparable to if not better than other places claiming to have the best crab cake in Maryland. Very good. The owner was cool also. Thanks for a nice date knight by the water. We will be back!

Best ambiance outside of Bygone and Rusty scupper. If it's not too hot, always elect to sit outside next to the beautiful quarry. Food is good yet pricey. Gorgeous restaurant

Best mussels I’ve ever had! Charles the owner recommended an excellent wine to pair with our dinner. If you’re not an expert definitely ask Charles for help. Also the ice cream sandwich for desert was original and fantastic!

What a lovely waterfront Quarry view location with exquisite service and delectable food. This elegant but comfortable restaurant is a jewel nestled in the Greenspring/Pikesville area.

We started with tasty, crispy charred Brussels sprouts appetizer with cauliflower florets paired with a crisp and tasty chardonnay from an impressive wine list.

I enjoyed a perfectly cooked and presented veal chop while my dining partner loved her Chilean Bass.

Topping off the night with this Black Raspberry Ice cream Sundae sealed the deal. We will be back with more friends.

I loved the food and location. However, I would have loved to trade waiters with the table a few seats down. Our waiter was very short and not present as much as I would have liked. I was actually jealous of the service the other table got lol. I will be sure to ask for him the next time I come. I hope my waiter was in training, because I expected more from the positive reviews I read before coming.
