    Food is always very good, but service was particularly bad. We have been here many times, always the same story, although this time it was even worse. had to wait a long time for our table, and no one said a word, no smile, no sorry, no communication. They are cold and don't know what hospitality is all about. We had to ask a busboy to tell the waiter we would Ike menus, after sitting 15 minutes at table. Then we had to tell someone we wanted to order wine. This also happened to the people next to us. They actually really complainted and the restaurant sent them some bruschetta as a sorry. There is no warmth, here, just really good food and wine.

    My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at La Sirena! The food was out of this world and the service was impeccable. The entire staff took ownership of our experience and it was as if we had 5 different waiters/waitresses, including the owner. We arrived a few minutes early, enjoyed a glass of wine while we waited and then proceeded to have a beautiful and delicious dinner. We will be sure to return!!

    We were celebrating my Dad's 85th birthday and La Sirena made it very very special. I had called ahead of time to let them know what we were celebrating and they came with 4 fabulous desserts for the table, one of which specifically for my Dad with a HAPPY BIRTHDAY written out in Chocolate. The food, service and atmospshere was wonderful.

    Four us went for dinner on a Thursday night. The restaurant was full. The couple we were with were Italians formally from Bay Ridge Brooklyn. Trust me when I say that they are harsh critics! Everyone ordered pasta dishes which were amazing. The pasta was perfectly al dente and the sauces were to die for! My husband has celiac and the restaurant had gluten free pasta. We will definitely return next time we are in town.

    My favorite restaurant I'm a foodie and love this place! Food is consistently great, from the baked clams to fabulous pastas, and a variety of main dishes. Bronzino is delectable topped with a light salad with shaved fennel. Veal is tender and melts in your mouth! Always too full for dessert. Leftovers heat up for a fabulous lunch the next dsy. Can't wait for my next visit.

    This restaurant is a must try . . . Marcello is a superb chef who makes amazing, truly authentic Italian dishes. The daily fish specials are superb, and paired well with the extensive wine list, which features all sorts of great wines, but focuses on hard to find Italian wines. The staff are extremely attentive, in a rather intimate atmosphere. Locals love this place. Try a dessert to finalize a perfect dinner.... we had the ricotta cheesecake and homemade biscotti -- what a treat!

    This restaurant is a true gem. I eat in restaurants a lot, especially in New York which I thought had the best Italian food outside Italy. I was wrong. You could plop this restaurant down in the middle of Tuscany and it would still shine. The service was impeccable, but not intrusive, and the food had the true flavor of first-rate ingredients which is the key to great Italian cooking. You could easily taste both the individual ingredients and the overall dish. My new favorite, not just in WPB, but anywhere.

  • Off Season But On Their Game
    LocalEater
    Dined on 9/15/2014
    We had a quiet, romantic September dinner at wintertime hotspot La Sirena. But the restaurant was fully and professionally staffed, including the chef owner and his front-of-the-house wife whose stylized portrait graces the menu cover. We enjoyed both daily specials, the local yellow tail snapper and the authentic chicken cacciatore with a more than fairly priced bottle of wine from a very long and varied list. The chef added a between courses treat of a melt in your mouth ricotta ravioli. We indulged ourselves with a pistachio tartufo (how does a frozen dessert arrive at the table so creamy smooth?). A pure delight. The food and service will be the same during high season, we know from experience, but we loved a serene La Sirena.

The food is excellent and so is the staff, plus it's great that we get to see and meet the owner/executive chef before we leave. Can't say enough about this place!

    We couldn't wait to go back to La Sirena. Every year, the owners go back to Italy for the Summer and we are left to fend for ourselves without outstanding italian cuisine ;-). Glad they are back! Everything is perfect at this quaint and elegant place in West Palm. The service, from the moment you walk in until you leave, is top notch. The food is impeccable, and the wine list is extensive, varied and full of great quality wines. If you happen to be visiting the area, give this place a try above any other. You won't regret it. Welcome back! We'll see you again soon!

    Through the years I have been dining at La Sirena. It is a delightful hideaway in West Palm...however, you will see many Palm Beachers, etc. there. Small, intimate, family owned and operated. Husband wife team are excellent. After a while one does notice that it is rare to see any change of staff. Once you go there, you most likely will want to return. Emphasis is on quality dining. Friendly. Most enjoyable!

    Even better than I remembered. While La Sirena offers gourmet sounding food, we ended up ordering salad, pasta bolognese, and stuffed chicken. All very basic sounding, but the quality of the ingredients was superb, and the preparation was perfection. Home made pasta with veal bolognese was to die for. We ordered stuffed chicken really at my husband's request, and I would go back and have it again tomorrow. I loved the mushroom wine sauce and the crunch on the outside of the chicken. Truly a bit of Italy in West Pam Beach. Go!

    Because we arrived early on a Monday evening after peak season, the restaurant was quiet with several large tables set for guests who would arrive later. That made the atmosphere serene, diffferent from the usual high noise level that can be disconcerting. But the food and serrvice at La Sirena are really fine so if the slighltly higher prices are not an issue, this place is among the best in south Florida.
