Great French Bistro serving the best Bouillabaisse in town

My husband and I have dined here a few times because we think their Bouillabaisse is the best of any place we know. We have also tried their mussels and their steak frites. All very good. As for the ambience, the restaurant is located in a very pretty, quiet area of Roslyn, on old northern... read more

We've been eating at Bistro Citron since it first opened but haven't been there for the past year. Bistro Citron specializes in French cuisine but has American and Italian foods too. Their Prix Fixe Lunch which includes appetizer, entree and dessert is a very reasonable $14. My husband had the Prix Fixe starting with a salad that had several old... More

Bistro food is always wonderful for lunch or dinner and Citron does not disappoint. Traditional fare like Mussels, Onion soup, crepes, etc. are always wonderful. Diverse menu includes terrific meat and fish dishes. The restaurant is small, so if you can sit in the back section or in the banquet that lines the side. We recently reserved and arrived a... More

Family went for Sunday brunch. Daughter ordered a cheese omelette and didn't like the cheese it was made with. They offered to bring her something different, but she then asked for a cheddar cheese omelette, and they didn't have cheddar. That's when they offered to go down the street to the deli to get some cheddar. We tried to steer... More

Good for reasonable and tasty bistro food. On many occasion had a nice meal, though it can get hectic and noisy.

Lovely restaurant, backing the pond, in the Village of Roslyn has the best Mussels Mariniere in the entire city. Along with their outstanding baguettes, this is the ultimate treat. However, this restaurant offers their mussels all year round and when the mollusks are not in season, you will be served tiny, stringy mussels...ugh. Their French based menu is right on... More

The lunch was both delicious and very well priced. The portions were generous. I would happily go again!

I went to the restaurant with my parents this past weekend. It was as nice as I remembered. When I walked in it reminded me of several bistros I have been in in France. The menu is varied and the prices are fair. It is walking distance from the movie theater and there is a parking lot a few stores... More

I'll never return to this restaurant despite the fact that it has a nice lunch time ambience and is right in my home town. It's obviously gone way down hill. The service was all around terrible. We waited a really long time for our food, and then when it finally got there what was supposed to be my medium rare... More
