    I have been there many times both under the previous owner and the new owner. In my opinion, the new owner is doing a great job. Quality has gone up and is much more consistent. The Bronzino Piccante was excellent. My guest also loved the seared salmon. The Peasant Salad was a great value and delicious. Dessert included Cinnamon Churros with Chocolate Sauce for dipping. Really wonderful. The waitress was friendly, helpful and attentive. Overall, a delightful experience. Highly recommended.

    We had an awful experience with the manager. We ctually called the owner. who was very nice and apologetic, and had the chef come out and try to fix the situation. Still didn't care for the food, all the meat was overcooked, and the salad lacking flavor. The wine was good. Table bread was burned pieces of dry sourdough toast. That we were charged $3 for! Mashed potatoes were good.

    A horrible experience. Will never return and suggest that you stay away. Nasty staff meat was just a bunch of fat. Manager had the nerve to bring out an uncooked piece of meat it looked great however on our plates just fat. He was nasty and treated us not as guests. Could go on and on not the time —- just stay away and save your money !!!

    This was a perfect place to meet a friend for a quiet late lunch. The staff was impeccable. The arugula salad was fresh and vibrant (minus the fennel, which I personally dislike). The tagliatelle was cooked al dente and was super right and hearty. I highly recommend dining here.

    So I was looking forward to this place for a while, but it was hard to find time since they are strangely closed on Friday and Saturday. Arriving the ambiance was nice, no complaints there. I normally start my nice dinners with a cocktail, and that's when I started noticing issues. Their cocktail list was underwhelming, little if anything above what you'd see at any dive bar or even a T.G.I. Fridays. I expected a place like that to have signature drinks, but their overall alcohol menu was unimpressive. Even their wine list was limited and not organized well, the bottle-only wines mixed in with the by the glass ones. A couple across the way complained about the fact that the website prices were lower than the menu, it was surreal seeing the server argue with them. For our meal, the appetizer was fine, but my steak was overcooked. I mentioned this and the cook essentially said the steak was fine and either they'd take the steak away and drop the charge, I could eat it as is, or I could pay for a whole new steak. This was, again, somewhat surreal. The steak was definitely overcooked, not very tender, and although flavorful I can't say it was a good experience. They were nice enough to comp me a dessert and a glass of wine, as that wasn't the cook's decision apparently. I was almost willing to give the place another chance, but the dessert was essentially an unmoist choclate cake over a very plain mousse that was little more than a dense whipped cream. My wife also suspects that they forgot the sauce on her pasta. I will say though, the sauteed spinach they gave me was probably the best I've ever had. Weird place, but from what I can see it isn't worth the price.

    The experience was fantastic from the point we stepped in the establishment until we left was excellent. The only issue I have (I work in the industry), is the sides for the herbed fillet and the duck were underwhelming. The presentation was not what I expected given all the other details of the experience that were exemplary.

    This restaurant was very disappointing. The service was poor but the waitress did apologize and stated that it was due to a party upstairs. However we had to ask for water, one of the appetizers in our Citron Sampler was ice cold, or food was bland and uninteresting, and the service was slow although the waitress seemed friendly enough. I read so many good reviews and truly am not sure why. My duck breast was bland and hubby’s pastrami sandwich was not good at all. We don’t send food back so we did not complain while there, we simply paid our bill and left. Also normally open table guests are treated like they are special, in this instance we were not. UPDATE: I also reviewed this restaurant on Google and the owner responded to my review saying he hopes we never come again. That speaks volumes as to the type of place this really is and he can rest assured we will in fact never come again.

    While the food, service, and ambiance were as good as always, I was dismayed at the total lack of awareness that we are still in the middle of a pandemic. Every other establishment that I was in while visiting Philly (Starbucks, convenience stores, hotels, national monuments, et al) was adhering to pandemic protocols, requiring masks of everyone while indoors and only allowing eating mask-less by proven-vaccinated patrons. Stepping into C&R was a reminder that there are large swaths of society that just don't get it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    My husband and I had 630 reservations yesterday. This was the first time we’ve been on a date since October 2021 (we have two small kids and have been very Covid conscious). Since there was no cocktail menu, I ordered a Manhattan and my husband an old fashioned. I don’t know how an “up” drink was watery…but it was. The drink must have been sitting in ice for a while. For $17 each, the cocktails need to be better. We ordered the Halibut and Short Rib. Our roasted beet and tofu salad was great. But the quality of food (or really, preparation) ended there. The fish was incredibly overcooked. My husband is very concerned about social politeness and even he said we had to send it back. The server took it off our bill, but never “made it right” (eg comping a drink, sending over a manager). The $62 short rib was also over cooked, but not enough to send back. Just very disappointing. The coleslaw was not seasoned and tasted like raw, undressed cabbage. The corn was soggy. I think the issue is definitely the cooking. We had such high hopes for Citron and Rose. We moved to Narberth last year and have been searching for our “regular” places. On a different note- there were only a few couples dining (compared to large families). It may be nice to have a separate more romantic space for non families.
