I had an absolutely amazing time!!! The customer service, View, &Food was all outstanding!!
Tremendous dinner here last night. Drove from Silver Spring to explore this new spot. Beautiful views, excellent drinks menu, and the food first-class. The owner Charles Levine made me and my guests feel welcomed and like family. I highly recommend this spot for any event or occasion.
We had a great dinner at Citron. We sat outside e terrace with a great view over the lake. The food was fantastic, well-prepared with great ingredients. Our server Courtney was very friendly and attentive. A great all-around dining experience!
This dinner was very disappointing. First, it took over 10 minutes to check in, and I felt almost ignored. Then, were seated outside, by request, and I thought we would be near the water. We were told that those tables needed to be reserved, and one was empty almost until we left. I wondered why I was not told when I made the reservation a week before. The photos on line clearly show the water view. The Moscato I ordered was flat, and I was given the reason that it was a cheaper brand with no bubbles. That made no sense. In fact, it was an insulting response. I guess they wanted me to pay $12 for cheap wine. The very expensive NY strip was tough, and the scallops not cooked enough. The California roll was good, however, and we got that as an appetizer. The VERY expensive evening was a bust.
A beautiful view and great food and service. A perfect evening.
This place is worth every dollar. Perfect in every way.
Absolutely loved the Mac and cheese appetizer with a chicken Caesar salad. Impeccable service all around—from the hostesses greeting at the front to the servers, owner and wait staff. Incredibly COVID safe as well, as I learned about their new indoor HVAC system to kill germs and bacteria, and they placed hand sanitizers on every table. Even took my temperature when I arrived. Hit the spot, will definitely be back!
We had a great evening as always!
Probably my all time favorite restaurant. Great food and atmosphere. Charles makes you feel at home every time.
Just an Awesome time
Awesome service and food!! I enjoyed every minute. The view was amazing. The owner was personable and courteous.
We had such an amazing experience at Citron!! We love this place, and never have anything but great things to say. Citron has done everything the right way since COVID began, and have made everyone feel comfortable and happy having a dine-in experience. The crab cakes were the best I have ever tasted, brussel sprout app was delicious, and raspberry chocolate chip ice cream for dessert was so refreshing and satisfying. Service was so helpful and attentive as well. We can’t wait to come back again soon!!
Just a Date with my mom on a nice night
This was our first time out to a restaurant since the pandemic (5 months). But with all of the safety protocols in place, we thought we would try for our anniversary. So impressed with everything! And the food was fantastic as always:-)
Brought some friends to dine outside overlooking the lake. Wonderful food and wine as always.
Great food ,service and attention to detail. Wine and alcohol prices were exorbitant. Similar food and better prices at better known restaurants in the city.
Outstanding food, service, and ambiance. Citron is consistently outstanding. I was also glad to see the restaurant doing so well - it was very busy!
Such a mixed bag: beautiful setting, pretty cocktails, tasty appetizers, bruised by a server who ignored us, and a ridiculously bad entree-- which I would have sent back but for the fact that the server avoided our table and eye contact. This place has a good reputation and I am willing to give it another chance, but so many missteps at a an ostensibly fine dining establishment makes me wonder about the management. And a 20% gratuity was tacked on automatically. A bad practice for precisely this circumstance: a substantial markup for bad service and a bad meal, leaves a bad taste in the mouth, so to speak.
Lovely evening - my first restaurant experience since the quarantine began. It felt very safe due to the spacing of tables, temperature taking of guests, mask and glove wearing of staff, outdoor venue. I will be back.
The food was the best I have ever had there! I felt very comfortable and safe and it is only the second restaurant we have been to during the quarantine. They are doing a stellar job!
Amazing food and service! Definitely recommend for a date night!!
The service was impeccable from the arrival to departing the restaurant. They were very thorough in sanitizing and keeping up with CDC guidelines making patrons feel very comfortable being at the Citron.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Citron. The food, wine and cocktails were first class. The staff is always very attentive and they all wore masks and were very careful. We sat outside and the view of the lake was beautiful.
Great food and service. A very nice whiskey selection as well. The owners were very friendly. I will definitely be back.
Great for date night and anniversaries absolutely love this place!
What an incredible experience. Was so shocked at the incredible food and view of the quarry.
Excellent service , owner was friendly . I will return and recommend others
Was good up until the end. Sold us on this fabulous chocolate macadamia nut dessert when we got home it was coconut cake. Yuck!
We had a beautiful evening in every way possible! Great food, great ambience, lovely service -- what else can we say?? Sitting outside with a total view of Quarry Lake is simply heaven. Can't sing the praises of this restaurant more!!
It was very nice and pleasant we really enjoyed it !!!
I highly recommend the restaurant. The staff was friendly and took extra safety precautions for COVID-19 by checking your temperature and providing hand sanitizer at each table . The attention to detail was greatly appreciated!
I was a little apprehensive about eating at a restaurant. Citron made me feel as safe during my dining experience as humanly possible. There’s excellent spacing between tables, my server wore a mask and gloves and explained to us how often he washed his hands which greatly helped me focus on my excellent meal. The new short rib pizza is fantastic ! The crab cake is terrific and they certainly have one of the best wine lists in Baltimore. The weather was warm but the deck was reasonably comfortable. All round perfect meal!
Everything was great! The food, the service, the ambiance, and the value. Charles Levin periodically checked with us to make sure everything was ok. This was our first visit. It will not be our last.
Everything was wonderful except for the surprise 20% service charge on my bill.
Order caesar salad added chicken. Chicken was 14$ dry & no taste. So that made a 27$ basic caesar. Please dont waste your money on the salad. Great atmosphere. Service was good.
I've been to Citron four times now and the evening never disappoints. If your a Sauvignon Blanc drink step out of the norm and order a Sancerre from France. From seafood to steak everything is fantastic. If you're lucky enough to get Henry as your server the night will be unforgettable.
Ok so this place is everything, really surprised this is my first time here being how I love nice restaurants. I was so pleased with the food, the service and the ambience. Did I mention great service...like the owner stopped by our table about 3x. New fav place, we actually debating on whether to return the next night or not!
Absolutely lovely view, innovative cocktails, incredibly friendly staff. The owner went out of his way to rush us a happy anniversary and pour us two glasses of complimentary champagne. The braised short rib appetizer was decadent and I’m desperately trying to recreate it at home!
As a chef myself perhaps I’m a bit critical, however I also know it’s a little difficult right now getting back into the swing of things so I understand. Food was amazing and everyone was very nice. Would definitely go back. So many other dishes I’d like to try.
Expensive, but the food was really good. We both had scallops.
The glass of wine was way over priced even for a fine dining restaurant.
We sat outside over looking the water. Gave the feel of being somewhere other than Pikesville.
The hostess did not have her mask on when we arrived. Not a good first impression. However, the food and atmosphere made up for it.
