    Every time we travel to singer island we eat here at least twice. The owner/chef is always there which makes for consistent tasting food. The food is exceptional, as is the service. The maître d is one of the best we have ever experienced. This is, by far, the best italian restaurant in Palm Beach, Florida

    La Sirena was great choice. We had a lentil soup which was good and did a Rigatoni vodka as an appetizer which was excellent. The women each had a fish speciality. my wife's branzino was sautéed to perfection. I had the veal piccata which was good but not great and my step dad had a monster of a double pork chop which he really enjoyed. Side dishes are extra and the spinach and zucchini and carrots were good. For dessert my wife the premier authority on creme brûlée gave it three thumbs up and the other deserts and coffee completed the excellent experience. For a Thursday night it became crowded and noisy real fast as we could only get a reservation at 6:00

    First time eating at La Sirena, and I would recommend giving it a try. We had a 6:30 reservation for four and when we arrived, the restaurant was almost full. The menu was great, with a lot of variety. The wine list was a bit overwhelming, but quite a collection, especially of reds. Service was very attentive, although somewhat rushed at the end, when they clearly wanted to reseat our table. All in all, a great experience, just wished we didn't get the rush at the end, especially when we had been sitting less than an hour and a half from start to finish.

    Came here with my family and we had an outstanding meal!! Everything we ordered was amazing - we had the Gnochi and eggplant pasta as appetizers, both were phenomenal. As for entrees, we all had an amazing dish, and great portions. Wine list was extensive. It was a little loud as the restaurant is small - but it just adds to the cozy feeling. My father-in-law often dines in cities like NYC, Chicago and LA, and said this restaurant is easily a Top 10 for him and we will definitely come back! We went to Renato's the following night, and were disappointed - should have gone to La Sirena again!

    Dining in/with a good restaurant should be, needs to be a complete experience food/service/ambience When all other then food fall very short (as it did on our visit this past Saturday) the value of this restaurant is in serious question After waiting for 25 minutes to be seated for our res. we waited an other 25 minutes for anyone to pay any attention to us for a drink order. After speaking with ownership we walked away with the clear impression they couldn't care less Too many good establishments to be treated like this ever again

    I dined in this this restaurant several times. They never change, always outstanding. They serve the best quality food.The service is special, well timed, never interrupting. The food has large variety with a long list of specials. One can really enjoy the healthy fish meal or many other healthy choices. The wine selection is extraordinary. You can order a small bottle too in many selections. I keep this restaurant as my favorite.

    I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant and so wh I was planning a trip to visit friends in Palm Beach I made a reservation several weeks in advance. Thank goodness I did because every table was full - and with good reason! Our dinner was delicious, the service was fabulous, the wine which the waiter suggested was good, and it was a wonderful experience. Everyone raved about their food

    This restaurant offered tremendous, authentic Italian food, coupled with an extraordinary wine list, in a beautiful setting. Unfortunately, though, the noteworthiness of the meal was diminished by our overwhelming sense of being rushed by the servers at all points of the meal. It was a real turnoff, especially given how much we would have loved to have NOT had this as the lasting remembrance of this restaurant.

    La Sirena is a charming, cozy, family-run ristorante. The food is amazing, no matter what you order. The feeling of prided and love permeate the establishment...even the artwork reflects a love of the place. Living in Palm Beach for 30 years, I've seen some great restaurants, but this equals or surpasses any of those on the island. It is a gem!

    My wife and I went for an early, mid-dinner. Inside the restaurant, the atmosphere stopped at the bar; the dining room is a blandly-decorated, high-ceilinged, poorly-lit Quonset hut. On the tables were the barest minimum of dishes, silver and glasses. Nothing that created or enhanced atmosphere or said "welcome". Order-taking was perfunctory and the food preparation raised the question that this might have been the Chef's night off. Very tiny clams and very odd seasoning in the baked clams; watery tomato sauce on the pasta; unseasoned vegetables. We skipped coffee and dessert and we're happy we didn't need to wait for our car. There are far better and far more welcoming Italian options at more reasonable prices.

    Our reservation was for 6:30, and we were seated right away. Table for two was roomy enough, but it was situated in the middle of the room. And almost every time a wait person went by, he bumped into one of us. Not hard, but noticeable. Just past us was a long table, obviously set up for a large group. And we were made to feel rushed as though they needed our space as well. I indicated I would recommend it to a friend, and I would because otherwise it was very good. But there are enough good restaurants in that area that I don't think I'd go back.

    although the food was excellent and the service very good, La Sirena is very noisy and the tables are so close together it is difficult to move. It was frequently hard to hear our companions across the table. Not what I expect from an upscale place like this. The wine list while excellent was absurdly marked up for Florida. I felt like I was back in one of NY's top (and overpriced) restaurants but at least there I can hear my companions

    I began with the escargot- way too much garlic. Then I had the langostino which was good. My husband ordered the gnocci to start which was delicious and possibly the lightest gnocci I have had. He had the ravioli special which was with lobster that he said was delicious. The side of vegetables (carrots and zucchin sticks) were ok and really didn't bring anything special to the meal. For dessert we shared the berries with zabaglione. It had an overwhelming alcohol taste which made it difficult to consume. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice. Tables are very close together. I would try again since my husband's meal was so tasty, I just would stay away from the escargot or ask for less garlic.

    We loved our New Year's Eve dinner at La Sirena! Many restaurants offer only a set menu/prixe fixe dinner on NYE, but La Sirena not only offered everything on their menu, but many tempting specials as well. Several in our party had the veal piccata, which was outstanding, but the crown jewel was the succulent veal chop from a roasted rack of veal. Attentive and friendly service. Everything was just wonderful. What a great start to our New Year's celebration.
