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!

The food was rather bland, pretty average, definitely not impressive for an upscale restaurant and overpriced. The service was very attentive.

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.

Avoid th "Artisanal Cheese Plate"
We should have known by this being offered as an appetizer.
The cheese was stale and dried out . They charge 28$ for five tiny pieces, with the rind on - served with crackers, raisins, dried apricots, caperberries (also dried out), and olives. Obviously, this platter is prepared way in advance and lingers in the fridge.
When the manager was made aware, her comment was "interesting", then she picked a pice of cheese up with her fingers and took it to the kitchen, never to return. And the cheese plate was still billed!

My sister enjoyed her birthday. She was really impressed. I received once again exceptional service. The food was delicious my two sisters enjoyed every dish so much we order additional to go. We appreciated the spacing provided in the dining room and the beautiful environment. Our waitress she was outstanding. This is one of our new favorite places to dine. My Sister loved the beautiful moment she was celebrated by Citron with a delicious birthday dessert.
Thank you🥰

Didn't like the fact I arrived 15 minutes before my reservation time and i was told I had to wait closer to my reservation time to be seated.. While waiting two seperate walk-ins were seated before me. Which really upset me. I finally got seated 20 mins after my reservation time. Food and drinks were excellent as usual.

My husband and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary at this beautiful restaurant.The host escorted us to our table. We chose to sit outside, however instead of sitting directly on the lake, we were able to dine in the heated tent which still felt like outside. Cozy dining music was piped in, tasteful enough to enjoy dining, but not overwhelming in any way. We had specialty drinks, delish. My husband had Filet Mignon and I devoured Chilean Bass. The heat and seasoning to perfection. Desert was Chocolate Macadamia with vanilla Ice cream. The Icing on the cake was meeting the owners who came out just to say hello and make sure all was well.

My service wasn’t like the first time that I’ve been. The waitress tried her best. There was a hostess who set dirty dishes behind my back, which had fallen and fell to the floor. One waitress I believe she tried to fill my cup, but put water in my sprite. I understand that she was doing her job, normally you’re asked what you were drinking. I requested and let them know the occasion of my reservation. It was ignored. I’m sure they could have known that there were balloons where we were seated. I don’t believe that I’ll be back or recommend. We didn’t feel acknowledge. Even though the owner came over for a second and that was it.
