A word from La Sirene
Special French Cuisine With the Best Mussels in the City.
See all photos >
Magnifique. Superb. Food was
flawless in its presentation and execution. Coq au vin was amazing. Mussels in curry with diced apples and ravioli were delicious and portions just right. Our server was patient and professional and allowed to dine without too much attention. Restaurant is cosy. Highly recommend."

There is no more BYOB. They broke
my heart. I got the call to remind me of the reservation and my face fell. I still like the food and service. As of February 23rd their bar was not complete. They have a limited selection, and no mixed drinks. You probably should pay the corkage fee.I still like the place. I have been going there from long island since it opened in 2007."

Expected more on valentines day
but got a so so experience. The last time we ate at this restaurant everything was super delisch. This time not so much."

After I made a reservation for
Valentine's day dinner, I received a call from the restaurant; I was told that I had to pay $100 to hold the reservation. It seemed suspicious, but that money was honored when I was cashing out at dinner. Escargots were amazing! They are served in shells and are just yummy. Steak with Fois Gras melted in my mouth! We weren't thrilled by the desserts (we were served an assortment), but we were happy with the meal overall so it didn't matter."

Based on Open Table's
recommendations as a good place with BYOW, I reserved a table and brought a bottle of wine with me this past Monday. Unfortunately, the restaurant has changed it's policy so I ended up paying for a bottle of wine myself at the restaurant. Opentable or La Sirene should have honored the BYOW until the feature is removed from your website. Very disappointed indeed."

Went there whilst in New York for
my wife's birthday. Didn't get off to a great start as we brought our own wine as website (still) says no corkage, but were charged $20 for each bottle and advised that the website had been changed. A couple who came in after us were caught out similarly, so not just us. However, started with pate and escargot, both were excellent, followed by duck and mussels, again very accomplished, with (one) chocolate pudding to finish. Great food, but either website or staff need updating!"

The tiny bistro La Sirene on the
far western side of Soho is worth searching out. The food is lovingly prepared and beautifully presented. The restaurant's Moules Dijonaises was the best version of mussels I've ever had - anywhere in the world. If the small tables weren't so packed together, I would have given it all five stars for Ambience."

Delightful meal, made more
delightful by friendly, professional service and the BYOWine policy that significanly lowered the bill. Of particular note: HEAVENLY APPETIZERS Roasted Whole Pear with Melted Blue Cheese, Pate de Campagne With Pickles and Salad, and Sautéed Baby Octopus with Garlic, Parsley Olive Oil, Bread Crumbs, Tomato Mushroom; LUXURIOUS ENTREE Seared Filet Mignon Topped With Foie Gras, Shallots, Port and Red Wine Truffles Sauce. Only the special entree did not live up to expectations---cod in saffron, perfectly cooked but in need of much more saffron sauce. In highsight, we might have asked for more sauce. LIGHT AND CREAMY DESSERT: Iles Flottantes, Soft Meringue, Caramel, Almonds, Crème Anglaise. (All looked tempting!)"

Delicious meal. Great ambiance.
Would definitely go back"

La Sirene had come highly touted,
and I might not have been disappointed had it not. Seating was moderately uncomfortable. Food was adequate but not special as I had been assured. Service was friendly and quick. We were eating relatively early because going to a latish show. As time passed and the place filled, it got noisier, too. It was a good value, though. I would call this a good student dive but not a destination choice for anybody else."

The food was spectacular
(especially the little veggie platter they give you with every entree). I loved the ambiance and the feel of the place. There is no cork fee and you can bring your own wine; just remember that it's cash only."

This is the best BYOB in
Manhattan. Recommended dishes: Onion Soup, Tartelette de Chevre, Mussels Rochelaise, Tournedos Rossini (split this one because it's too rich for one person), Cassoulet and all the delicious desserts. Fabulous Veal Chop with Morel Cream Sauce as a special the other night. A downtown treasure."
Dined on 1/10/2014
The space at La Sirene is intimate
and ambient. Very nice. I had heard good things from friends about the restaurant being one of the best BYO spots. The food is good, but not spectacular. Everything we ate was completely solid and satisfying, but I wouldn't say that I'd recommend the place for the food alone. That said, there is no corkage fee, and as BYO joints go, the food is a notch above other BYO establishments I've visited in NY. The service is very friendly but not smothering. All in all, I'd recommend this place for anyone looking for a really solid BYO experience. If it's just about the food, I'd say you might try a different French place."

Luckily found parking right in
front at the time we had single digit temperature. The place was full! The portions of their appetizers are surprisingly big! The cheese tart was different and scrumptious. My beef tornado was good but the sauce over powered the dish. It would be better with less sauce or maybe not quite as thick. I made a mistake of cutting the foie gras and biting it like meat because the place was so dark and the dark sauce covered it all up. I was looking forward to having it with bread which we ran out of. My friend ordered the curried mussels for appetizer which she loved! I picked the banana creme brûlée. It was excellent and not sweet and rich. It had slices of fresh bananas with some custard and brûlée on top."

The food was good...there isn't
too much variety on the menu though. The duck and filet mignon had identical plating and sauces. There are only 8 or so appetizers and 5 main courses to choose from since the coq au vin was out of stock. It was January 4th and the blizzard had hit. The restaurant was only half full at 7:30 PM. I don't see how they were out of stock. My mussels were undercooked. Main courses were a bit on the salty side. BYOB is good, but it's not worth the hype on Yelp."
Dined on 1/3/2014
I loved the food enough to give
this place 5 stars, even though I did not like the service. The waitress gave a vibe that she did not want us there. Also, the table was too small and I could not even move my right arm."

Came for new years eve, ordered
the set dinner. Cheese was very nice, as were appetizers (caviar and escargot). Mains were cassoulet and filet mignon. Cassoulet was very tasty, but filet was over salted. Server was very gracious and traded it out for the scallops. However, felt slightly cheated on the scallops as the presentation made you believe there was more than on the plate - they had halved them and placed the cooked side up. Dessert was great."
Dined on 12/31/2013
I had read all the rave reviews
about the filet topped with foie gras so I was anxious to try this culinary delight. While the quality of the meat was good, it arrived at the table "swimming" in sauce which made the fois gras difficult to taste. Also, it was not a particularly appetizing presentation--perhaps if some vegetables appeared on the plate with the meat, instead of JUST the meat. On the other hand, the family style vegetables were delicious. The BYOB policy is great. Makes dining out more affordable."

This place makes you work hard.
First, they let you know that they take no cards and have no liquor license, so you gotta go get some cash and wine before even walking in. When trying to enter (door on right), they tell you that you need to enter on the left, although they end up seating you within a few feet of the door on the right. Odd. The menu had some good choices and some of the dishes were quite good (octopus app). Some other stuff was mushy. Service was attentive, but I never knew who was actually our waiter. We had no relationship with any one person and left feeling somewhat anonymous. Overall, I took my wife there for a birthday dinner and she was disappointed. Good if you are in the neighborhood, but not a destination spot."
Dined on 12/21/2013
Appetizers and entrees were very
good. We had escargots, foie gras, blue cheese and caviar for appetizers and they were all excellent. We had duck and lamb for main courses. The portions were the right size and tasty. Do not get desserts here. The chocolate lava cake was not warmed all the way through, the Ils Flotante was not made correctly. Otherwise a good experience."

It's food and prices deserve cloth
napkins. Having brought our own bottle of wine made napkin situation less painful."

The BYOB policy makes this very
nice classic French restaurant truly special"
Dined on 11/23/2013
Staff is very friendly and the
cuisine is very good. It was empty at 7pm on a wednesday but filled up towards 8pm. They don't offer wine so you have to BYOB which is a bit of a pain but there is a liquor store not too far."
Dined on 11/20/2013
Loved everything we ordered. Solid
french neighborhood restaurant. We'd definitely return."
Dined on 7/7/2013
Fantastic French spot in SoHo. The
escargot was so good we ordered more! The fact that it is BYOB makes for a relatively affordable night out. Definitely coming back."

This was the third time I've been
to La Sirene, and as such, I had certain expectations. The place would be dark and cramped. The food would be good, rich, and portioned on the small side. And the service good. Well, La Sirene has impoved their light, and normalized entree serving sizes to be large enough to satisfy a hungry adult, but not be so much that one expects a doggie bag. The quality of the food has improved as well; the food is the best it's ever been at La Sirene. As for the service, it was excellent. Our waitress was attentive and competent. She never rushed us and made sure that we were finished with each course before clearing the table to begin the next."

Packed into a tiny location, but
the food was great (highly recommend the duck breast), and it was the perfect place to enjoy a special bottle of wine."
Dined on 11/2/2013
My husband ordered the red snapper
special and it was delicious. I ordered the lamb with a garlic cream sauce and was disappointed. The meat was cooked to my liking (medium rare) but I do not think the sauce complemented the lamb. The vegetables were delicious as was my escargot appetizer and the strawberry dessert. ."

I have been there many times and
the food is excellent. It is on pricey side but that being said it is BYOB so you do save a ton of money on wine."
Dined on 11/9/2013
excellent filet and the goat
cheese tart was fabulous! everything I have ever tried here is exquisite! I highly recommend it!"
Dined on 11/7/2013
the food is always excellent the
service is some of the best in town for a small place but on a cool autumn day and the windows are closed you good home smelling like you worked in the kitchen all night We had a table right by the front door and my shirt sweater and nap sack smelling like I was working in the kitchen Not sure if the La Sirene can change the ventilation system or I'll just wait till spring and the doors and windows are open I always enjoy myself there and its a BYOB to boot its truly a favorite of mine"

Dining at La Sirene was very good,
both in terms of food and atmosphere. The bypb service is great and without corkage fee."

One word can describe our
experience at La Sirene: outstanding. We've been to France a few times and I lived in northern France too. I had incredible meals in France, and I can honestly say this was one of the best French meals that I've ever had. We started with the perfectly seasoned buttery escargot (delish!). I had the Tournedos Rossini (filet topped with foie gras in a port & red wine sauce - oh my heavens! My husband had the Selle D’Agneau Poêlée a la Crème D'Ail (lamp chop with garlic sauce) wow! Both were out of this world. As a bonus, La Sirene is byob. I can't recommend it highly enough. One note, it is a bit crowded with many tables in a tight space. But it's romantic!"
Dined on 11/8/2013
This little gem had amazing French
food and the fact that it is BYOB really topped it off. I came for my birthday and we had a great time. It was a bit noisy, but it was late on a Saturday night. They let us linger and enjoy all our courses. I'd definitely come back! The food is a bit pricey but its worth it since you can bring your own wine."
