Food definitely overpriced, I know for a fact they defrost their desserts, but my was no completely defrosted when it got to my table, I order the most expensive meat they got $72 and I had better steak in a food truck at the end of my street for $12

Top notch drinks prepared. The wine list is very well put together. The food is amazing and the overall aesthetic of the restaurant is very pleasing to the eye.

Everyone was very nice but the waiter was very slow coming back to us. Appetizers came out fast but our meal took sometime. I ordered the filet mignon med well and it was very well done. Everything just tasted ok. You would've thought it was very busy the way everyone working there was 🏃‍♂️ around but there was only one other family in the dining area with us. Two people came in maybe an hour after we got there and never got waited on so they left. I overheard the waiter talking to someone saying oh they left, like they were waiting for them to leave. We were there for over 2 hours.

We were seated by a hostess who was less than happy to sit us. She basically had an attitude and someone who seemed like the manager was also less than pleased to have us there. I suggest reading the yelp reviews if you are a black customer because it definitely seems like we were not welcome there.

I can see why people come here because the ambiance and drinks were phenomenal. However, the food lacked seasoning and our server was slow and seemed distracted.

Food was average; I agree with those who say it is over priced; service was spectacular, ask for Valaria. They set us on the side overlooking the quarry it was enclosed and because of the weather, they had the heaters on. The temperature was perfect, 30 minutes in and the manager walked in and turned off the heat. Made some excuse about it being to hot (mind you, we were the only two people eating in in this space at the time) and that he would be back later to turn the heat back on. I said I want to eat inside if he was going to leave the heat off, he said he would come back in about 5 minutes and turn it back on. He must have know, that I was not happy and one of the waiters came back in and turned the heat back on. Also, I do not like restaurants where 20% gratuity is included with the check. For the kind of money that they charged, you are better off going to a four or five star restaurant where you will definitely get more for your money and you have the option of tipping according to your personal experience.

Perhaps being around for almost four decades has removed me from a sparkling clear view of current culture and society, but I find spending over $200 for a good (but not great) meal for two beyond my comfort level. The host is caring and delightfully friendly. The food is very good, and if you can afford it without any negitive reflection or guilt - enjoy!

Wonderful setting on the quarry lake. Super nice staff and owner. While it’s a bit pricey, the food was excellent. The Ahi Tuna Tartare was delicious with fresh tuna bits over guacamole with black sesame seeds, thin cucumber slices, and baked tortilla crisps. The garlic salt on the perfectly cooked medium rare filet mignon made it so good that I can still taste it. The rest of the menu looked fantastic as well, but we couldn’t try it all. A great meal and a top restaurant!

The bar area was very rowdy. I didnt expect this type of energy for this ambiance. There was even a full blown physical altercation between a staff member and a patron. This was disappointing in that I actually came here to impress someone to seal a business deal. Not appropriate at all.

We eat at Citron as often as possible when we’re in the Baltimore area. A friend took us there last year and its now our “go to” place to eat whether it’s just the 2 of us or when dining out with friends and especially when entertaining clients. Charles has made us feel so welcome and the staff is so professional and the food is excellent. We’ve had some fabulous wines and Charles is knowledgeable and always willing ton make suggestions.

We were disappointed with our experience. Our reservation was for 8 pm and we were not seated until
8:35 pm. This was on Mother’s Day so I understand that they were busy but 35 minutes wait is too long when you have a reservation. Our waiter told us that they are out on about 4 meals. Of course that was disappointing because now we were very limited on what we could order. My son ordered kids meal with French fries but got mash potatoes without anyone checking with us if that was ok. When I let our waiter know that we ordered French fries he just said that they are out. I apology it was like “ohh well”. This should have been communicated with us before they brought our food! Then we wanted to order dessert but again they were out on most desserts and we were left only with two choices. When I made the reservation I did let them know that this was for special birthday and Mother’s Day but nobody bothered to wish happy birthday or happy Mother’s Day. We were so looking forward to a wonderful upscale experience but it was nothing special.

Good food, but it’s overpriced. And the service was horrible. If I spend over $300 for a meal, I expect top-notch service. And that’s not what I got. Server was nice, but basically forgot about our table, and kept forgetting to bring items out to us. My dessert got delivered to the wrong table.

And to top it all off, since it was Mother’s Day, they assessed an automatic 20 percent gratuity. I normally tip well (always over 20 percent) without being forced to. But the experience was so bad that I wish I could have tipped less.

I was really disappointed in my experience here. I drove nearly 40 minutes to get to the restaurant, and the service was awful. Next time I want some expensive steak and potatoes, I’ll just go to Ruth’s Chris. At least the portion sizes and the service justify the price tag there.
