Always a great meal! Had the fabulous escargot served with polenta. One of my favorites is the veal zingara & it didn’t disappoint. So sorry that they close for the summer, for a much needed rest.

Just delicious ! Everything from appetizers, salads, pastas ( many are home-made) and entrees. Love their veal Zingera and snapper oreganato. Their buffalo mozzarella special was fabulous too. I wish there was more room between tables - it is really crammed in the dining room. I wish they weren’t closing for the summer- you can get reservations now that the snowbirds left. Can’t wait for them to reopen !

Excellent as always. Only one minor complaint. Service is efficient to a fault but sometimes a little too efficient. A little more time between courses with a little more time to linger over the part of the meal just consumed would be appreciated.

Tables are so close we could hear the whole conversation at the next table. One of our guests ordered a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp on top. He got a Caesar salad with 6 medium shrimp boiled, not grilled. Service was fine but when check came, they charged 12$ for the Caesar salad and 39$ for shrimp scampi. Then they changed it to 39$ and no charge for the salad. Ridiculous and dumb because we will never go back and everyone we know will know too.
It was unpleasant and I cannot understand why any business would not want to please the customer. Also, my Dover sole was eh!

We returned to La Sirena after quite a long absence and found everything the way it should be: friendly staff who remembered us, excellent food as always and this great familiar feeling of being “at home “. We truly enjoyed our last experience and we are already looking forward to our next dinner at La Sirena. Thank you!

Service is too rushy. You are not even sitting at the table that they put bread in your plate and ask you what type of water you want. Once they give you the wine list, they come to you 2-3-4 times to ask about your wine selection. With an extensive wine list, you need a little more that 2 minutes! When you go to a restaurant like La Sirena, you want to take your time rather than rush. Food is always excellent and we go there for the high quality of the food only.

The service was very rushed. We ordered a glass of wine and as soon as it came they wanted our order. We asked them to give us a few minutes. 2 minutes later they came back. Took order. It continued for the whole meal. 6:00 reservation. Check by 7:10. Not a very relaxing evening. Will not go back.

We dined at this restaurant before and found it to be very special, but unfortunately did not have the same feeling this time. Although the service and ambiance were the same (very good) the food was far inferior, My wife's order of one of the fish specials (the branzini) was actually very disappointing and tasteless. My vitello "papagagno" was only so-so. Our appetizers and desserts were good, but nothing special. We did not feel that our experience at this sitting would be worthy of a positive recommendation to any of our friends.

I’m so disappointed, ranted and raved about the food and came back with 3 others couples tonight to celebrate a birthday. They initially set up a tiny table for 8, a table which might fit 6...only after we said something did they put a larger table top on.

Escargot was terribly salty, buffalo mozzarella and tomatoes was good. My veal zingara didn’t even taste remotely the same as last time, wasn’t served hot, and the sauce was reddish in color this time. Our friends enjoyed the risotto, gnocchi and cannelloni. Hubs had the chicken stuffed with veal which I found terrible, too salty and the texture unappealing. The flourless chocolate cake was bitter, odd tasting. Creme brûlée was good. A very different impression than my first time here I’m afraid...consistency is what I expect and this fell well short.

My husband and I had the most unpleasant meal here. The atmosphere is stuffy to say the least. When asked for a specific way a dish was to be prepared the waitress asked another waiter to help us instead. That particular waiter gave me a particular hard time in trying to get one of the house salads with a piece of fish on top. He asked if I would still like all the fixings on the salad including the parmesan cheese, I stated yes. The fish came out on an appetizer sized portion of salad (instead of dinner size requested) and no cheese. Had to ask for the cheese and horseradish twice to get them. To our dismay the table had a dinner salad with looked like fish and I asked what he was having- house salad with fish! And they couldn't do that for us:(. Overall extremely unpleasant experience with too many inattentive staff.

One of the outstanding restaurants in S.Florida distinguished
by an extraordinary international wine cellar overseen
by highly respected sommelier, Aaron Smith.
La Sirena is a true classic dining experience of Italian
cuisine paired with wines that will open the eyes and
palettes of the most discriminating patron.
