I can imagine at one point this was probably a great place. I remember coming here a few years ago. We really enjoyed it, but it was even empty then on a weekend night. We were a little surprised because the food was so good....More

We came to Le Citron Bistro soaking wet, on a pooring rain NOLA night. We were the only customers in the restaurant. We ate so well and the service was impeccable. Our waiter even offered us costumized plates that weren't on the menu. It was...More

Le Citron Bistro is in one of the oldest buildings in New Orleans. It has its charm, old brick walls and fire place. Plenty of free parking is a plus. The menu featured two soups, split pea and duck gumbo. Both of the soups were...More
