    Absolutely incredible experience!! We’re driving to BWI to fly to Aruba next day and dialed into trip advisor for the top restaurants on the way from York to the airport. Fortunately we were turned on to Citron! We couldn’t have been happier with our choice. We met and spoke to Charlie Levine, the owner and host with the most! One of the most dedicated owners of a restaurant I have met. Rich was our menu leader and expert for the evening. He lead us on the path to gastronomic fulfillment and delight. Myself and my wife were thrilled with our culinary happenstance at CITRON!! Try it, you’ll like it!!!

    This was thee best dining experience. Our waiter Will was subpar to none. He will be requested EACH time we visit. He knows the menu VERY well. His recommendations were on point. The lobster bisque soup gets 10 stars. Charles was very attentive as well. Very personable and catered to the entire room. Some people are made for this and based on my experiences these two are. Our first date was recognized with a party and port wine. This, again, was absolutely the best fine dining experience I’ve had in a long time.

    This was our first visit to Citron and it was easily the top dining experience we’ve had. Our waiter, Will, was very personable and made excellent recommendations. Everything we ordered, both food and drink, exceeded our expectations. Charles, the owner, took the time to get to spend time with each table, getting to know his patrons. We will be sure to return!

    Went here for my birthday dinner - food was pretty good but imo not worth the ridiculous prices they’re charging. Had much better food at other high-end restaurants for way less. $44 for 8 spinach & cheese ravioli wasn’t worth it. Our waitress was great - very attentive. Got a nice complimentary birthday dessert of a shortcake. Be prepared for a 20% service charge even if it’s just two of you ordering 2 entrees and 2 drinks. Oh and a 3% credit card fee - as if they can’t afford to cover that lol. Spent $30 in fees alone not including the $25 tip.

    Our server William is always wonderful, engaged, attentive, Friendly, and professional. He is a delight and I highly recommend requesting him. The owner is always engaging and making everyone feel welcome and at home. I’ve tried everything that Will has recommended and all of the food has been fantastic. This was our first time eating inside since COVID and felt comfortable as the air handling unit was explained to us.

    Prices are well above what was expected, but more surprising and dissatisfying was an automatic 20% service charge added (party of 5) AND a 3% transaction fee added. Maybe this is a trend I have not yet been aware of but I dine out frequently in NYC, DC, and VA and have never seen this before.

    This was our first time at Citron. We made reservations for New Year's Eve, and as soon as we arrived, the owner warmly greeted us. He sat us in the fireplace room, right next to the fireplace, which made the night even more special. Everything we ordered, from the cocktails to the appetizer to the entree and dessert was to die for. We had the scallops that came with lobster sauce that was out of this world. We have traveled all over Italy, Germany, Austria, London, etc., but have never tasted scallops so perfectly cooked that every bite took me to heaven. Wow! The service was superb as well. Our overall experience was espectacular. We will come back again. A special shout out to Chef Jerome; you sir rock!

    Disappointing experience. The food was highly overpriced for what was served. My wife’s entree was warm at best and my chicken entree had no tastes we were charged $6 for bread, the salad was missing ingredients and they charged a 3% surcharge because I was using a visa. I would be surprised if this restaurant stays in business.

    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.

    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.

    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.
