Over priced for what we had. With covid 19 an issue, I’d felt seating was a little to close for comfort. We were told by the manager if my wife and I wanted to be seated outside on there balcony, I would’ve had to request upon making the reservations. When stated it wasn’t an option for that, I was told we should’ve called the restaurant to request... I’d noticed white customers were seated outside, along with one African-American wedding party. It seems to me that the majority of African Americans were seated inside.
When making the reservation, Citron was quick to ask for a credit card incase we’d decided to cancel. I felt outdoor seating should have been an option in the booking process.

Our expectations were through the roof to dine at one of the fanciest restaurants in Baltimore County, so keep that in mind. We aren't typical fine dining connoisseurs, but I received a $100 gift card so we decided to indulge after a long needed date night to celebrate our anniversary. The lobster bisque was incredible. I'm so glad I watched the presentation on their Facebook page. Yum! The drinks were average. We both ordered dirty martini's. I would have expected for $18 dollars a piece (YES, $18!!!) they would come with more than 2 olives and they should have been stuffed with blue cheese. Plus, the glasses were so small, but filled to the rim making it hard to drink. We also ordered mussels, which was recommended from all the reviews, but I think they had a bad batch as they were gritty. They kindly took them off the bill, even though we ate at least a third of them before realizing most of them were gritty. Our meals were well prepared and tasty, but portions are moderate (to be expected). The dessert menu lacked luster. A nice creme brulee or flan would have been nice, but there wasn't anything worth trying. The pace of the food delivery was on point. The COVID prevention was taken extremely seriously and temperature checked all patrons and had hand sanitizer on each table. Wait staff wore gloves and heavy duty masks. Overall, Citron is very impressive if you have money to blow or impress clients (which we really don't), however I would recommend going to others, but keep your expectations low and expect to pay much more than you would expect. Cheers!

The food was excellent-- everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed it. However, as time went on, I began to feel uncomfortable with the crowds and noise. If you are still leading a cautious lifestyle due to Covid-19, I suggest going as early as possible.

Our waiter, Henry, was the best! Very attentive and made great suggestions. We arrived at opening and had a lovely seat (outside) on the water. The food was cooked to perfection (the mussels and Goyang sushi were 11/10) and the atmosphere was very pleasant.

Splendid place, especially for those special events in your life. We ate Covid- style, outdoors, under a vented tent, overlooking the lake. Last winter, pre- virus, we were inside by the fireplace: charming! Our server was funny and very efficient, very likeable. The pace was excellent, not too slow, not hurried. The entrees, which ranged from vegetarian to scallops to steak for two, were all excellent and prepared well. Presentation was fine.Appetizers were skimpy: 12 truffle fries for $10? ( And It was beyond plain cheap to charge for bread! ) Drinks were fine. One disturbing note: one of our party uses a cane. When she came to the heavy front door( by herself) both the owner and the hostess watched her struggle to open the door with one hand. Neither came to help. Not good. Nonetheless, overall, Citron, a visually stunning space, is definitely worth your visit,

We had a 6 person business meeting that started with drinks on the outside deck then a great meal and finished with drinks on the outside deck. We spent over 4 hours were completely safe and it was a very enjoyable experience.

Lovely view of lake if you sit outside. The waiter helped with the hard chair by putting a cushion on the seat when I asked. Everything was served well and professionally. I am going again next weekend with a friend.

First of all the food was amazing!!! Sadly, not given a choice of indoor/outdoor seating. They sat us outside, it was freezing with no heaters. Took us awhile to get re-seated inside and it was in the bar area where it was extremely loud and our table was in the middle of everything. Our service was so so...nice gentleman but took forever to get drinks and order food. Food came quickly (thankfully) and I will say it again...it was delicious.

My friend dined at Citron on Saturday evening at 6:00. It took 15 minutes for a waiter to approach us and take our drink order. It took another 10 minutes for him to come and take our appetizer order at which time he stated that the bar was backed up and our drinks were not ready yet. Our appetizers arrived before our drinks. Once we served our dinners, we were never approached by the waiter to inquire if we needed anything else or to ask how our meals were. We weren't approached again until we were just about finished our dinners at which time we could finally order another drink. The waiter was nice but not very attentive. The atmosphere was beautiful and the food was delicious. We enjoyed ourselves but were disappointed with the service.

I was very annoyed by Citron's reservation policies--credit card required to make a res and $25 charge if cancelled further out than 48 hours, esp given that we will only dine outside right now and the weather is unpredictable, and given that this is not B'more practice, and given that I've made many reservations at upscale places in NYC, Seattle, SF, etc., and not had these kind of hoops to jump through. PLUS regardless of party size, a 20% gratuity is added, so the restaurant decides for you the tip amount.

We went because we had a substantial gift certificate to use, and we went expecting to not like this place because we arrived thinking that this place is a little too full of itself.

Well, the greeting we received was warm and welcoming, the place is GORGEOUS, the outdoor seating is perfectly lovely (made us feel like we were out of town), the service was attentive and friendly and welcoming, and the food was really good. Everything we had was well-prepared and delicious and our server made excellent suggestions

What a very pleasant suprise! We also had great cocktails and very good wine recs that were reasonable.

In all, I think everything is a little pricey, and, like Linwoods, they should definitely have some casual options available. I would only choose Citron over Linwoods because of the setting because I still find the policies annoying and pretentious.

But, for a beautiful and warm setting and a special occasion, Citron would be great.
