Overall, my table had a fantastic dinner. The server was knowledgeable, friendly, and offered his opinion when asked.
The food during dinner rush came out in a timely manner, and was very tasty!
Would definitely return!

One of my all time favorite places to eat. They have an amazing menu, an amazing atmosphere (design, music, general vibe), fantastic, friendly and quick service, all at relatively reasonable prices!
Would definitely recommend Citron and Rose!

The food was so incredible and they have the most enjoyable aesthetic. Great vibe, from the music to the decor. Their burger was the best I’ve ever had and I recommend anything off the street menu. Highly recommend Citron and Rose.

This restaurant is excellent! My friend and I had good food in the outdoor tent, which was well heated and kept the cold out very well. I really enjoyed the French Onion Soup and the Fish and Chips. Very nice service. Highly recommended.

The food was really good, better than expected. We waited an extremely long time for the food, and over 20 minutes for them to take the order. I’d still go again!

Excellent food and really pleasant waiter who was very helpful and attentive. A bit pricey even though we ordered on the lower end of the menu but everything we had was delicious.

There is a massive tent with heating which seemed pleasant but we went early and our family was seated by ourselves in the bar area which was quiet and nice.

They have a great outdoor area underneath a tent. We have eaten there multiple times and the temperature is fine even now.
Food is delicious - we always get the wings as an appetizer and enjoy their steaks or street food menu which includes different tacos. Definitely recommend.

Went out with another couple for 'date night' and had a great time. We ordered one of everything off of their 'Street Food' menu, and it was the perfect amount for the 4 of us. Lots of variety, everything was amazing. Great cocktails, too, and we brought a wine to open (corkage fee).

Only one waitress taking orders. She was very kind & helpful but was obviously stretched thin. due to the amount of customers there should have been at least 2. We enjoyed the fish special of the day which was cooked to perfection and plated well. The rest of the food was so-so. Some dishes tasted rewarmed/fried.

The menu listed on this site is not the menu they currently have. It seemed like none of the servers knew whose table we were. Flatbread was too soft. But the food wasn’t that bad really just maybe a little pricey- but thats probably because its kosher. I just thought the items were too all over the place and I mean I don’t need 4 separate menus of so many things ie: “streetfood”, full menu, cocktails/beer, wine, and also a ‘smokehouse’ (or something like that) menu. They also let a fire die out and fill the tent with smoke for half an hour. I know covid times are crazy and everything is more difficult now but maybe simplifying the menu and instead of the manager walking around to each table to chat-he could help run food- stoke fires and help servers more since they have tables both inside and out.

This was the first night they were offering outdoor dining, so they had a few kinks to work out (like smoke wafting into the tent from a bonfire they had outside for guests waiting to be seated). The staff was friendly and the food came out promptly. we ordered a sampler appetizer that was very good. For the main course, we had two 8oz steaks for $46/piece. They came with a baked potato, grilled veggies and a small personal salad. I think it was a little pricey for the size of the steak. We ordered one rare and the other medium. They both came medium rare. For dessert, we ordered pumpkin cake which was large enough to share and came with a very small scoop of pumpkin ice cream. It was delicious.

Fantastic date night with my wife. Service was spectacular, and the food was really really good. Had the French 75 cocktail, which was amazing, and we both got the Duck Confit, but I changed mine from the Pesto Risotto to the grilled veggies to go with it, which they substituted without any hiccup.

The staff was warm and friendly despite our server not being familiar with the details of the menu. However the most egregious aspect of our dinner was the
surprise that came with the 16 oz chef steak surprise; a $145 charge! ( $185 with tax and tip for just that mediocre steak!) When we received the bill and questioned the charge, and pointed out that not only was the price not listed on the menu, but that our server neglected to mention the expensive price associated with this steak, we got nowhere.
They advised us to call Michael the manager and after 3 messages we have yet to receive a return call.

This was really nice inside, the ambiance was lovely. Very quiet place. A Jewish establishment so no dairy and meat together. Our server wasn't that great though. She knew nothing!!! No drinks, no foods she just lacked alot. And the food was ok, they didnt have alot on the menu available. Those smoked wings were great tho!

We actually drove up from Baltimore and were not disappointed. The place has a very nice vibe and feel. Diners were well spaced away from each other. The serving staff wore masks and were very friendly and knew the menu well making great food and drink suggestions. The appetizers were great and I highly recommend the beef empanadas. Good cocktails and good beer on tap. We had burgers and they were all gourmet and very tasty. Overall a great place and great experience. If I had to be picky I would say the desert choices were a little lacking and somewhat less gourmet but tasty and nicely presented.

We came for my S.O’s birthday with his family. Our server was absolutely lovely, the food was fresh, delicious, and presented beautifully. The atmosphere was charming. I totally recommend, especially if a kosher diet is something you need to consider.

The food was good and I’d normally have gone back for that. My issue was the lack of covid precaution. The chef actually came out and talked to us which is nice, however he removed his mask at one point to speak to me which made us very uncomfortable. I noticed that two other people working there had their noses out of their masks as well. The last straw was when they seated a family of four right next to us within 3 feet. It wasn’t even that busy. They could have been seated further away.
No thanks. Good food but not worth it since now I’m worried that I may have been exposed.

I didn't think I was a person who liked to eat chicken wings until I tried the chicken wings in the starter sampler. Turns out I am a person who loves eating wings at the tavern.

The drinks were good. I ordered the brisket and it was very dry. The food was not worth the money. I also mentioned we were celebrating a Birthday and the host and waitress didn't mention it until we were walking out the door. The place was pretty I just wished the food was good.
