We loved our experience from beginning to end. My boyfriend and I celebrated our 2 year dating anniversary. Our drinks were great. We had the sea bass as our entrée and it was amazing. The food was very flavorful and cooked to perfection. Sarah was our server and we were pleased with her service.

The ambiance for the dining area was very very nice. We will definitely be back to celebrate some lifetime events.

We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated promptly when we arrived on a really cold and windy Friday night. There weren't many people in the nice looking dining room. The calamari appetizer was nicely breaded and spiced but was a tad overcooked. The Chilean sea bass entree was really, really good - cooked perfectly, a good sized portion, and nicely glazed. The salmon entree was also top notch - cooked perfectly, good size, and just the right spices. The creamed spinach was very good - it had a bit of clove to add to the flavor. For dessert, the coconut cake was a stand out! Our service was really good. Oh yes, we'll go back!

I Had a wonderful experience. I bought my friend here for his belated birthday, and he was elated by the atmosphere and the set up of the restaurant. We were pleased with our waiter being kind and helpful. We were grateful for the covid protocol, policy, and procedures that were set in place.
The meal was amazing. The crab cake and lamb dinner was delicious and cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the beautiful lit candles and fresh flowers on the table. It was a cold night, so parking directly in front of the restaurant entrance was definitely a plus.

The food and service at Citron are fantastic. We went for our anniversary and had a great time with some of the best food and drinks we’ve ever had. You will spend a good amount on your meal but this is one of the few experience restaurants I’ve been to that makes it feel worth it.

I have dined out at many fine restaurants in Maryland and other states and by far this is the best restaurant I have ever been to. From the person that greeted us to the wait staff they were very friendly and in fact we were given a choice of which dining room we preferred we were allowed to to visit each dining room until we decided on one. The food was outstanding and our waitress'e timing between courses was well spaced. The other thing that impressed me was the well designed decor. It is absolutely breathtaking and I kept looking at it during my wonderful time I had there.

Beautiful restaurant, friendly staff, Good food but they seemed short on wait staff and were out of basic things (creamer for coffee). Appetizers took more than a half hour. Dessert (cake) seemed like it was taken out if the fridge and served.

We expected better at this price point.

We will give it another try and see if our experience was a one off.

Citron is the best restaurant in Baltimore, hands down. The ambiance is immaculate, the decor is beautiful, and the service is spectacular. On top of it all, the food is top notch! We started with sashimi and calamari, both tasted extremely fresh and were so good.

For the main course we had filet mignon, crab cakes, and salmon. The filet was cooked perfectly and you have to get the asparagus as a side - it’s incredible. The crab cake was also delicious as was the salmon.

For dessert we had the apple galette, the chocolate macadamia nut bar (of course) and the ice cream sundae. The sundae Is a classic, the apple galette is a perfect winter treat with caramel and warm apples, and the macadamia nut bar is a signature dessert at the restaurant that is undoubtedly my favorite dessert in the world. Highly recommend Citron for casual dining and especially for an event as they have multiple beautiful event/private dining spaces. Will definitely be back!

I noted that we were celebrating a birthday, and it was never acknowledged by anyone. The food was very average in comparison to the high prices. The place is beautiful, the service was just ok, and I don’t remember getting a heads up that there would be a 20% auto gratuity for 4 people.

Citron was the first restaurant I dined in during the pandemic in the summer of 2020 and it was absolutely outstanding. This was my second time dining there and I could not have been more disappointed. We were seated in an area by the bar with large TV screens and a private event taking place. I felt like I was in a cheap bar - not a fine dining establishment. Even though the room we were seated in was at least than half capacity the young lady who seated us took us to a table with three chairs - even though there were 4 of us - and never bothered getting us a chair - had to do it ourselves. Our server was phenomenal - I could tell they were being completely overworked but still did a wonderful job. The appetizers were excellent .The entrees took an extremely long time to come out - we were told because of the private party. I’m happy that restaurants are busy again but if you cannot accommodate all of your diners you should lower the capacity of your restaurant. When the entrees finally came out they were extremely mediocre- nothing special and for the prices ( almost $50 per entree) terrible value for money. I had bragged about this restaurant to my friends and because they were with us I didn’t complain . If Citron wants to seat people in a less than stellar part of the restaurant we should be informed and if they want to treat us like we are at a cheap bar the prices should be reflective of that. I cannot believe I actually had to put a credit card down to hold the reservation- this was not a fine dining experience at all. Definitely a bait and switch.

The worse service that I have ever experienced!. After explaining that I was not satisfied with my meal. The manager did not offer any assistance in making my experience better. Instead, she lied and refused to compensate for the meal, and could not explain why. We left paying for a meal we were unable to eat. I will not be returning to this restaurant nor will I recommend this place to anybody. And we were required to pay 20% tip which was absolutely ridiculous given the lack of service.

This was our first visit to Citron and we went for Thanksgiving dinner. The menu was special for the holiday, so I can't comment on their regular menu, but we were quite happy with the options and the quality of food and cocktails. I'm vegetarian and it can be a challenge to find a nice restaurant in this area that offers creative veg cuisine for the holidays. Citron certainly delivered. My husband is an omnivore and was very happy with his meal too. Cocktails were also quite good. I recommend the old fashioned! I think my husband ended up liking the Sidecar the best. We left very full and very happy! We'd definitely recommend. Our server, Brooksy, made the experience all the more special and enjoyable! She made great suggestions, has a wonderful sense of humor, and just made us feel quite comfortable and welcome!

Friday 5pm Anniversary dinner for two. We were literally the only table in the place - which was a tell. Food was good, but prices for drinks, appetizers and the main course were ridiculously high. Also, I didn't notice until I got home that they had added a 20% "service charge" - and I added my own 20% tip. It was our anniversary and our waiter, Paul, was wonderful - so I hope he got most of the tip.
