My husband and I celebrated our anniversary (4/8) and decided to dine at Citron. This fine establishment was recommended by a dear friend. I was very impressed when we entered, they took our temperature and we filled out a mini health questionnaire. Safety first.

The food was superb, the ambiance was perfect and the staff went above and beyond with the best customer service! I will return. Thank you, Citron!

WOW! 5-star restaurant for sure! We were promptly greeted at the front where our temps were taken for Covid-19 safety. Then, we were taken to our seats which overlooked a beautiful lake. Just breath taking! Our waitress was AMAZING from start to finish, and she even convinced us to get dessert which never happens, but i’m so glad she did! We also had the chance to speak to the owner who ensures you have a pleasant and personable experience. The food was outstanding! I will definitely be back soon. Keep up the good work!!

A first rate experience from the minute we walked in. The service and attentiveness at all levels was extremely high and exceeded our expectations, even for a dining experience of this caliber. And side note...If you are COVID concerned in anyway, your mind is eased immediately. (Temp checked on arrival and masks worn by 100% of the staff throughout all interactions)

The food was not only pleasing to the palate but the presentation was easy on the eyes and enhanced our enjoyment that much more. We were engaged by Mr. Levine (Owner) on multiple occasions during our evening...had some personal conversations about his family and their relationship to Miami University (which came out of a Cincinnati Ice cream conversation) and he and all of the staff were extremely attentive to my in-laws, as it was my Mother in laws birthday...bringing her a complimentary dessert...and having my Father In Law remark (at 80 years old...and well travelled to say the least) that this dinner at Citron..."was one of Top 5 meals he has had in his life."

This was not my first time at Citron and I have always been impressed...but this experience will certainly keep me coming back. It was worth every penny and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a upper tier dining experience in the Baltimore area.

Thank you to Mr. Levine and all of the Citron staff for a wonderful evening...and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

My wife and I enjoyed our 3 year anniversary at Citron Baltimore.
The owner was at the door to great us as we walked in.
He gave a tour of the facility and allowed us to pick our own table, we chose the room with the fireplace.

The waitress was amazing, very professional and courteous.

The food was amazing. And we received a complimentary cheesecake slice for our anniversary.
Would recommend The lamb chops and the 16oz steak and lump crab sushi (forgot name).
Great place to fine dine!

This venue is lovely!! Even with pandemic I felt very safe as their ventilation system is top
Of the line. Additionally there was excellent spacing for clients. The food is off the chain! A bit pricey but worth the experience!

It took awhile for a waiter to come to our table. The food was ok- not worth the price at all. My husband got the ribeye and he was incredibly disappointed. The atmosphere is beautiful, but the food is just okay.

The food was delicious, but the ambiance was not what I was hoping for a romantic anniversary dinner. It was loud, super crowded and our dinner felt rushed. Our salad and appetizer came out at the same time and we hadn’t even gotten our drinks. We sat outside on the covered patio, which I was greatful for because the dining room was ridiculously noisy, but we basically froze outside. The Staff couldn’t get the heater to work, so it was generally uncomfortable. We sat at about 6:30 pm and were home by 8:30 (with a 45 minute drive), so basically our entire $300 dinner was less than 90 minutes...not the dining experience I would have expected for the price. Thankfully the food was delicious, but the atmosphere ruined it for us.

Excellent crab cake and the best lobster sushi roll I’ve ever had. The Citron salad is also excellent. As usual the finest wine list in Baltimore. Also our waiter Christian was fantastic. All around terrific night at Citron!

I recommend the restaurant for good drinks. The food itself wasn’t as exquisite for the price listed. I had a salmon salad. While the salmon was good, the salad was wilted and a little soggy for my taste buds, but the wine was pretty exceptional. My husband ordered a chicken salad and expected grilled chicken with his salad, but instead got fried chicken nuggets. Oh he also ordered a beer. Our son had the same fried chicken nuggets with fries. Our bill was $155.

Needless to say I’ve spent less money for better quality of food.

But again, I recommend going for the drinks.

The owner was very pleasant and welcoming. Our waiter was nice and suggested great options for us to try. It was a little dark but it was still nice, food was really good my favorite was the sushi. Cocktails were good as well. This place was great, pricey but well worth it, will surely visit again.
