I took my husband to dinner for his birthday on a Tuesday evening. It was our first time at Citron. The seating and decor is very nice. The wait staff was very friendly. The food was delicious as well as the drinks. I would definitely recommend for a special occasion as the prices are high.

We went for dinner for restaurant week and had a wonderful meal. The ambience was outstanding. The restaurant is beautiful and I would highly recommend for a nice night out or nice date night. Both my friend and I enjoyed our meals, wine and dessert and agreed we would be coming back. I highly recommend this restaurant.

First time at Citron and our waiter Jack was amazing. Very attentive and accommodating. The lamb and veal was delicious and cooked exactly as we requested. The music (live) was a little loud for the size of the crowd.

We needed a break from all of the holiday preparations and a relaxing dinner at Citron was the perfect answer. The owner greeted us and escorted us to a table. We ordered adult beverages which were great. My wife ordered the Sea Bass and I the NY Strip Steak. Both were perfect. The service was fine.
It was a very enjoyable experience.
Thanks,

Charles seated us right away, which is a pleasure these days, even with a reservation. Foods was excellent. Everyone had their own personal nuances when placing their order. All food came out correctly and hot. Never rushed to leave. Very enjoyable dinner.

The new impossible burger is outstanding! Great to have an excellent vegetarian option. The white bean soup is also terrific. Citron still has the best wine list in town. Free valet is also nice in the cold weather. Overall a pretty great night!

This was my second visit to Citron and it will be my last. The first visit was not good but the restaurant was new so I thought I would give them a second chance. From the start, the receptionist managed to not make eye contact from greeting us and taking us to the table. Quite a feat. The cocktails were excellent. We ordered a cheese tray (additional cost over the Prix Fix). Menu said the tray came with crackers and bread. Cheese came (sans knife or fork) but no crackers or bread. Server said he didn't know. When the crackers came we were half done eating the cheese. Shame b/c the crackers were excellent. We had a choice of 4 starters. One of us picked the Caesar salad. It was very fresh Romaine with shredded Parmesan. No dressing. The bean soup was very thin and had some oil slick on the top. There were four entrees. Two had an uptick in price. By the time our order was taken, the salmon was gone, leaving steak, turkey or cauliflower steak. Two guests had the steak, one ordered it rare, the other ordered it medium. They were cooked the same. I ordered the turkey. The plate was all beige. An ice cream dip of dressing, a stack of very, very dry turkey breast and a puddle of mashed potatoes. Some cranberries or spiced apple would have added needed color. The server did not inquire when I almost all of the food. Dessert was an apple tartan the size of a silver dollar with a melted tablespoon of ice cream on the side. A 20% gratuity was added to the bill as was the opportunity to add more. I scratched out the 20% and selected my own amount. This was strike two for this restaurant. There won't be a third.

Thanksgiving menu had very limited, boring choices for appetizers; normal appetizers were not included in fixed price. Four very small rolls were given for three people. Entrée two turkey slices were good, with lots of mashed potatoes and dressing, and a thimble of cranberry sauce, and no sweet potatoes. Desserts were very tiny, and chosen tart included two teaspoons of ice cream. Plain coffee was not included? Front room facing "lake" may have "ambiance"; second room was just plain. Total experience had very disappointing price/value.

Citron is by far one of our favorite restaurants. Upon entering you’ll find a restaurant that is quite beautiful and plays host to the tranquil setting of Quarry Lake. The food is not only delicious but is prepared with careful attention to detail and remains consistent time after time. It would be difficult to find another restaurant with service as pristine as this one. The waitstaff is professional, attentive and friendly and never has a special request been denied. My husband and I have dined at Citron more than 30 times and Charles is always welcoming...making sure we have the most enjoyable experience. Citron is not to be missed!!

First time here... not sure we will return. The dining room was chilly. My wife ate dinner with her coat on and I wish I had something other than my blazer to wear. The food was good but not outstanding. We expected outstanding food based on the price and what we have heard and read. My dish arrived room temperature and I should have sent it back but did not. Our server was very good and accommodating. We were given a cupcake as we were celebrating our anniversary . That was a nice touch but it did not help eliminate our disappointment that we did not have an upscale experience. I doubt Citron becomes a long lived restaurant in the the Baltimore area. There are so many better options available.

First time visiting Citron and I must say service was exceptional. Food taste delicious. Fried calamari, mussels appetizers and salmon, and crab cake entrees were sooo good! I was thoroughly impressed with the ambiance and atmosphere. Our server Jacob was attentive and informative. Thank you for a great experience! Will visit again!

This was my third time at Citron and each time out our dining experience has been exceptional! The service was outstanding from beginning to end. We were greeted by the owner and received such a warm welcome. Our server assisted us in the selection of a fine French wine which paired exquisitely with our Filet Mignon. The filet was prepared exactly to my liking and may have been the most tender and delicious I have ever had. The atmosphere is amazing and most relaxing for enjoying a special celebration dinner or just an evening out. I have recommended Citron to all my friends and family and their feedback has exceeded expectations.

My friend treated me to dinner for my birthday. Once we were seated, it took a little time before our server came to our table; but when she arrived, she was very attentive. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and my friend ordered the Lamb Chops. Both were excellent.

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.
