    Room for improvement

    Right off the top, this place has the best hambergers in the city. Period. It's like filet-mignon sometimes, but never less than top sirloin. Likewise the Steak Tar-Tar is to die for. The drinks are a bit pricy, but that's Manhattan. On one occasion, a waiter became surly with one of my guests, and I never saw him again after many return visits. Outside of that one rare experience, the wait staff are friendly and efficient. The manager is on top of his game and the bar is populated with interesting and intelligent customers.

    Oasis on a scorching day

    Last July we found this lovely restaurant while looking for the Children's Museum of Manhattan . Luckily we had just hit a lemonade stand on Central Park West but were still desperate to find food and drink on a scorching day and with two little girls not used to this kind of heat . The place was just like us : Franco-american, with a Franco - American waitress who spoke both languages perfectly (kind of rare among us dual citizens) and was friendly and efficient . The pancakes were fluffy and yummy, the croque-monsieur was great, served with French fries (that would not be the case in Paris) but hey, this is the US . We have tried many cafés while living in New York five years ago and we were happy to find this place which is good value for money and friendly. In other words, it offers the best of both sides of the Atlantic . This is also why we love New York so much.

    This is where the locals go

    While visiting an uncle in Manhattan, he took me to a late dinner here. I liked it so much, I lunched here three more times. Service is friendly, the food is excellent, the location is not far from the Museum of Natural History + Bistro Citron = a good day

    great & authentique

    Had Lunch At Citron just today! I was very surprised with the food & the service. i was very impressed with the steak bearnaise which taste as good or better than many brasseries i used to go to in Paris. the service was also wonderful. Dont listen to reviewers who do not know better. this is not the kind of place where service staff fake accents! Trust me I'm french. you should try

    Not recommended

    My dinner experience in a nutshell last night at Bistro Citron: Started out with an unclean water glass, which the waiter acknowledged as "gross" because the grime was actually 3-Dimensional. After getting a nice clean water glass, received an unclean wine glass, to which the waiter said I was "having bad luck". I asked him what was in the spring risotto, which was on the daily specials list. Ahem: "I'm not sure what's in the risotto today, I'll have to go see what the manufacturer has sent us". So, their food comes in little packages and they just add water and heat it up. My husband order steak frittes medium rare, I ordered the steak au poivre vert medium rare. Both came out well done. Sent back, returned medium well. Didn't bother to send back again. My steak came with potato gratin, which was formed in such a suspicious cube I do not believe it could have possibly have been homemade - it probably came from the same place that "manufacturers" the risotto. Oh, and it was burnt. Bon Appetite!
