    French Neighborhood Bistro

    We've been here several times, most recently this past New Years Eve. The staff is very accommodating and they don't do a silly NYE prix fixe. The bread, butter and fois gras alone could be a meal. Love the onion tart and onion soup as well as the frisee with egg and bacon. The paella for 2 is more than adequate and chock full of seafood. The duck breast is wonderful as well as most of the entrees. Never been disappointed. The menu has plenty to offer if you like typical French bistro food.

    What a great place

    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.

    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.

    What Happened

    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.
