What a pleasant surprise. We felt like we were locals to the westside neighborhood. Enjoyed French Onion soup and a Caesar salad. I would return to try their hamburgers.

“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Had a very nice, if expensive meal here.

I had a New York strip with veg and the wife had sea bass, some very nice wine, we shared a cheese plate AND shared a dessert plus had dessert wine and coffee so no wonder it topped $200 with the tip.

It was very busy and this was a mid week night.

Staff who served us were South American, very knowledgeable so thankfully no snooty rude Parisian waiters here!

Definitely worth a visit.

“A Touch of France”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

A group of us had dinner here on a rainy, Sunday night. The food we ordered was delicious. Each person ordered something different from the menu: duck, mussels, and fish. Fish was cooked perfectly, mussels were flavored with a wonderful sauce, and the duck was cooked to order and tasted wonderful. The atmosphere here is cozy, french. It's a lovely spot to dine.

“Great brunch!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stopped for brunch before going to American Museum of Natural History, and they had a very good menu! They open at noon on Saturday. Great selection and reasonable prices for the city. Comfortable seating and friendly wait staff. The Burgers were delicious and the omelets looked great. Four of us all commented how nice a spot this was and really good food.

“Great Place to Dine After the Museum”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This restaurant is moderately priced ($60 pp with a drink and appetizer) and serves well-prepared traditional French cuisine. The atmosphere is casual, inviting, and warm. During my visit I had the Citron salad, Duck, escargots, and a blueberry tarte for dessert. My wife had mussels. The salad $12 was enough for two and had a good variety of vegetables. The duck also was a good sized proportion and the sauce was a raspberry. The blueberry tart was also well made. The service was attentive and professional. Overall, I highly recommend Bistro Citron for anyone looking for a very good casual French meal on the Upper West Side (82nd St)
