    The food was extraordinary, particularly all the fish dishes. Loved the ambience. And the quieter setting made it easy for us to hear everyone at our table and enjoy ourselves thoroughly. Also has an excellent wine and cocktail list.

    Dining at Citron is always an enjoyable experience. The food is well-prepared, served at the correct temperature, and the portions generous. The view of the lake from the main dining room and the deck is stunning. The staff, including the owner, are professional and friendly. Steve typically visits each table, not just for a quick "hello, thank you for coming" but actually engaging with the diners.

    The food, view, and service at Citron were all outstanding! We had tuna tartar and calamari as appetizers, followed by salmon and pasta entrees. My husband and I sat out on the patio to enjoy the nice weather and there was a family with young children running off some energy, which is the only reason I rated the noise level as medium. We didn't mind at all and there was plenty of space, which made the deck perfect for the family. The one critique I have of the experience was that the owner came over to our table a few times and tried to make small talk while we were just trying to enjoy our night out alone. One time he came over right as we were about to ask our waiter for something and we missed our chance. Maybe some diners enjoy the attention, but after we didn't really engage the first time, I wish he had taken a hint and let us enjoy our evening in peace.

    Decided to celebrate my birthday here with the Citron family and so happy I did. Not one thing was missed. The staff, amazing! The drinks (super cool gentlemen we called “R”) stunning!!!! The food, superb!!!! The guests, so much fun. It’s one thing to enjoy the food, drinks, decor etc. but to also be among other guests who are just as amazing just shows that the establishment is particular & intentional about the target audience. We felt welcomed & appreciated. I am definitely returning. Thank you to C, & J (Josh) for an amazing experience.

    I had an incredible experience at Cirtron. From the warm welcome by Rich to the owner's genuine conversation, the atmosphere was inviting. The surprise gift and amazing food made it more than just a dining spot – it felt like leaving as true friends and members of the establishment. A truly humbling experience. Highly recommend you to visit this amazing place!!!

    The peach daiquiri is so great it’s worth going to Citron just for that. However the tuna tartare was fabulous and the spring rolls are super tasty. The salmon was the best version I’ve had in years and my wife raved about her steak. Our server Rich was terrific too. All around it was a perfect night out in a beautiful restaurant.

    Maybe the worst meal I have ever had. Expensive, food was terrible. Steaks were poorly cooked. Crazy expensive. Charged a 3% service fee for using credit cards on a $350 meal. Both me and my girlfriend thought it was awful. Do not go here.

    A perfect meal. We started with the mussels. Probably the best I’ve ever had. My steak was fantastic and my wife’s Sea Bass was terrific and big enough for me to eat about half of it. The sides were all really good too. The owner Charles recommended an excellent wine that I took a picture of so I’ll be sure to order again on our next trip to Citron. We split a piece of cake to top off a truly perfect date night!

    Citron continues to be best in class, serving fabulous food — including the best veal chop! Elegant and beautiful atmosphere with top-notch service. I enjoyed a classic shaken daiquiri and we shared a delicious 2010 Bordeaux. Looking forward to my next visit soon.

    We were the only table in a brightly lit, cavernous dining room. There was a large private party in the other half of the restaurant that sounded like a night club. Our server, while pleasant, was harried. While our food was good, it wasn't great. It ended up being a very costly evening for a very poor dining experience.

    We went for NYE. Food was just ok. Found a hair on my plate of lamb chops. Chef didn’t come out to apologize about hair being in my food and neither did the manager. I also asked for my lamb chops to be cooked medium rare and they were rare. In enjoyed the sushi and drinks over everything. Next time I will just go to bar and order sushi and drinks.

    Citron very may well be one of the best restaurants in Maryland… every dish exudes class and flavor without being too pretentious. It brings NYC Michelin star vibes down to the Baltimore/Towson area with a wine list that could match some of the best restaurants out there. We look beyond forward to our next meal at Citron and can’t wait for that amazing sushi!

    Celebrating my husband's birthday. Server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The food was exceptional. My husband is a steak guy and he descirbed it as being "Butter". The restaurant had a great vibe and felt inviting. The owner greeted us and check on us throughout dinner. Overall a great night. I would highly recommend.
