We went to Bistro Citron last night to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. I couldn't have chosen better. The food was delicious. I had the sole amendeen and it was cooked to perfection. The greatest part of the evening was the service. Rarely have I been served so graciously. Will definitely come back.

Excellent food, great service. Our party loved the ravioli, tuna and the salmon with lentils. Good wine recommendations, love the place

I come to New York once a year, and i love to stay at the hotel by central park west. it happened that i stopped that night at citron bistro with my girl friend. we are both french and we thought that citron will reflect the image of what is the real and authentic bistro in france. unfortunately, nothing was like we expected , all the dishes had the right name spelled in french. but no one of this dishes represented the right food that we serve in france . steak au poivre was over cooked and the mussels were bland and had no taste. besides, no one knew how to pronounce the dishes name, the right way, not only that , but the manager was so arrogant , and the service was poor. i already mentioned it to the concierge of our hotel. and i don't recommend it to no one who is looking for french food.

Ate here several times over the last few years and loved it. Food. Service. The works. It was all good and I raved to friends about it. However, yesterday was Mothers' Day. I took 8 members of my family. It took one hour to get drinks and oysters alone. The poor waiter was embarrassed. The meal was less than forgettable. I don't think I'll ever be back.

The "seasonal vegetables" were actually frozen mixed vegetables. The $32 steak au poivre was chewy. The bread was stale. We didn't eat anything and felt like we had been to a bad diner. The only thing that made it feel like a french bistro was the bill. I had gone before a year or so ago and it was great. Someone has severely compromised the menu.

I have eaten here a number of times, and the reviews are consistent with the restaurant...inconsistent. I've had some very good specials and a really bad steak bearnaise. Service is generally good, but the bartender is partial to regulars and pretty young women.

This place was great! A group of us just happened to stop in for a quick bite to eat and ended up having a wonderful experience. The food was delicious (I used to live in France so I know bistro food) and the service friendly. They treated us like regulars almost immediately, which doesn't always happen in NYC. The moules were great, sole was very good and salad frisee perfect. My friend had a hamburger that he said was easily one of the best in town - and he's a native New Yorker. It's noisy, but that's what bistros are supposed to be. Two tables had young kids, so I think it's probably a place a lot of upper west side families frequent. I also noticed a couple in a booth that were just sitting and talking for quite some time after their meal. They sure don't rush you out when you're finished eating! Very nice! I look forward to going back to this place, even if I'm just stopping by for a drink.
