    10/10. We travel often and love to eat in NYC / the Northeast and Citron is right on the top of our list after visiting this weekend. This is a restaurant where they execute at a top level beyond the dishes served, the service is spectacular - Manhattan-esque. They truly went above and beyond to ensure we had a terrific, special evening. The Chilean Sea Bass was the best we have ever tried, full of flavor and perfectly prepared. The Veal Chop was delicious, it was marbleized as prime cuts of steak are. The wine list was remarkable and our server gave us great recommendations. The view and overall experience / ambiance was a gem. Charles Levine is a great restaurateur - we can not wait to come back!

    This is a beautiful space overlooking Quarry Lake, with plenty of outdoor seating. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Our server suggested a great wine pairing to go with our Faroe Island salmon entrees. The one thing that will keep us from going here on a regular basis is the price.

    My husband and I visited Citron to celebrate our 19th wedding anninversary. We enjoyed our meal on the terrace overlooking the lake. I would have rated our service higher but it took about 15 minutes before our server greated us. Otherwise, he was great. Our food was good but was missing the WOW factor for the price tag.

    My husband and I loved Citron. The food was delicious! We liked our server Kaylah, she made great food recommendations. We really liked the manager/owner checking on everyone. Thanks for a great time. My husband is still talking about his wonderful Father's Day at Citron. Thank you. The only request we have is that 100% of the 20% service charge should go directly to the server. We will definitely come back!

The customer service was outstanding, our server Will did an amazing job helping us feel comfortable and he did an exceptional job helping us make food and drink selections. Also the owner, came around multiple times to entire we enjoyed our time. We highly recommend anyone to dine at Citron, it was truly a pleasure.

    The food is great but the service is lacking. Our server had no clue about the drink or dinner menu. He wasn’t very professional and made a few mistakes which I can understand because we are humans but the tip is set at 20% so they don’t have to provide excellent service in order to make it. Restaurant looks nice and the outside seating is lovely by the water. When we were leaving at 9pm all the lights in the restaurant were off and you couldn’t see the way out which was very strange. Spoke to manager Brad and he seemed not to care and brushed off the terrible service by saying they had a lot of parties this weekend. He also took a phone call on his cell phone while talking to me! Never compensated me or apologized.

    Our Calamari was as chewy as rubber bands and I did not eat mine. My friend agreed but ate hers. The Panko type coating on the squid was soggy from the sauce that was on it. Our server did not offer to replace it. Turbanado sugar was used on the crème brûlée which didn’t melt at all and left a bad crumbly sugar crystal topping. We did tell our server. He said someone else said that too. Overall I was very disappointed.

    Citron is a little pricey but the food and ambiance is worth every penny! We had the sea bass, lamb, and ribeye. We all cleared our plates. Everything was so delicious! The staff was nice and diligent aside from our waitress charging us for another parties meal that was nearly 3 times the price of what we got. We got it corrected but she didn’t come back to the table after to apologize and avoided us until we left. That mistake was a huge no no. Aside from that it was a wonderful experience! I will be back but will watch my transactions very closely!!

    Another wonderful evening at Citron! Our party included 4 adults and we sat on the beautiful deck outside, overlooking Quarry Lake. We shared the large sushi platter appetizer and a terrific Bottle of wine, served by William, who was attentive and delightful. Just when we thought the night was perfect our entrees arrived and it got better! We can’t wait for our next meal at this restaurant.
