La Sirene is a great addition to the Upper West Side dinner scene. We had already had two wonderful brunches there but dinner was a revelation. The owner and chef pay great attention to every dish. The onion soup was the best I've had in memory, whether in the US or in France. My guests loved the beet and blue cheese salad. The rack of lamb was spectacular and the onglet was tremendous as well. We shared the profiteroles with great pleasure. (The chocolate sauce was memorable.) The wine list is extensive, excellent, and reasonably priced. Finally, the cocktails were first-rate. The restaurant is intimate, very nicely appointed, very French. The service was excellent -- combining efficiency with warmth. The prices are very reasonable. Above all, the food is wonderful. We plan on returning many times. More

The blonde woman at the front desk - maitre’d was absolutely charming and polished and was so welcoming and really “owned” the restaurant - an asset to the restaurant! We had another woman - dark hair and high cheek bones who assisted us with cocktails - my guests’ drink was great- I chose the cocktail with gin and prosecco- it was adequate but not outstanding. She was very nice as well and checked in to see how we were doing throughout the meal. However all our dishes were terrific- the scallops, the butterfly shrimp was superb and the flank steak and fettuccine were good. ( no bread was brought together the table - saw guests next to us had a basket) I sat against the wall and my partner sat across from me and noted this was a busy night but he had a problem with hostesses continually bumping into him without acknowledging or offering apologies or making a few adjustments with the chairs. These little details are easily remedied and can make the 4 stars become 5! More

I met an old friend for a long and leisurely lunch on a Thursday afternoon. The food was great. A burger for my friend and a chicken club pita for me. But each was prepared with care and skill. They were each a real meal and an excellent meal. Service was wonderful. Espresso was great. The bar is superior. It's a real neighborhood gem. More

Discover Upper West Side

Although it was home to Seinfeld and features other cultural cornerstones like the Lincoln Center, the “Upper Best Side” has long been passed over for other cooler neighborhood when it comes to the food scene. It’s no longer an afterthought, as some of the city’s most exciting new eaters have set up shop above 59th Street, creating more attention for the decades-old uptown institutions. Jewish fare like deli sandwiches and challah French toast are staples, but now you can also find the city’s best dan dan noodles. Grab a cheap Gotham hot dog, class it up with easy and reliable French, and save room for dessert at one of the countless cafes. Just remember to stay intellectually hungry—some of the city’s best museums are right nearby.
