My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate an achievement and we loved everything about the night here. The ambiance was beautiful. The food was delicious, beautifully seasoned as well. And we loved that our entrees came with a variety of vegetables to share. I tend to be picky with food and find that many restaurants use too much salt but this restaurant was perfect. The wine was delicious as well. Our server was wonderful. Everything was great. And we didn’t feel stuffed afterwards which was wonderful.

Originally we had reservations at another location but they overbooked the restaurant so we decided to come here overall great experience the only addition I would say would be the waiter has to be careful how he comes off because he did not really come off as knowledgeable but overall the service was great.

The female hostess seemed lost, perhaps a language barrier, but i asked several times about rules regarding limited sitting and she just couldn’t understand. The others were attentive, but unnecessarily “rough” around the edges (loud and aggressive demeanor).

I really wanted to try foie gras, this place offers a few dishes, unfortunately it was not good. It’s already fatty, why add oil???? The filet and foie grass was ok, my filet was overcooked and my niece’s hanger steak was very overcooked and tough.

Our host Nino was wonderful, attentive and knowledgeable. He gave us great meal suggestions and we loved his favorites in the starters.

Main course was quite good but starters is what got our vote :)

Dessert was a miss but again it’s all subjective. Do give La Sirene a visit and try it out yourself :)

I was beyond disappointed with our dinner last night. Based on the vast majority of reviews, we must have experienced a very off night. I had to send the seared foie gras (my favorite food on the planet) back because it was cold. The second one came out slightly warmer but was still cool. The cassoulet was overcooked, probably because the foie gras had to be remade. The banana brulee, offered an anniversary gift, was also overcooked. We took a bite each and left it.

We were SO excited to try La Sirene after all of the amazing write-ups and reviews but unfortunately there are too many consistently amazing restaurants in the City to support at this difficult time for all of us. I wish them the very best in the future.

As usual, La Sirène Soho never disappoints. The food is typical south eastern French and the maitre d' Nino is fantastic. Moreover the outdoor tables adds a new charm to the restaurant. With a nice glass of wine and a cassoulet, you couldn't be closer to the Castelnaudary experience! Keep up the good work.

Great food and service. My wife is vegetarian and had very nice options from the appetizer selections which was perfect for her dinner. She ordered 3 dishes, which I shared, Beet salad with brie, Goat Cheese tart, and Truffle ravioli. I ordered the Frenched Rack of Lamb which was exceptional. Meal was accompanied with bottle of red wine from the Corbieres region which was also very good. We finished with the Banana Brulee. All plates were cleaned. I was last here 6 years ago and loved it then...after this meal, I asked why I waited so long to come back. I won't wait that long for my return.

We had a wonderful evening at La Sirene tonight. My husband and I shared the onion soup and escargot to start and left not a drop of either dish. Absolutely delicious. The onion soup was savory but not too salty as some can be, with a perfectly crusty cheesy top and the escargot were bathed in delicious garlicky butter. We soaked all of that up. We had the filet with foie grad and the duck breast with cranberry sauce. Both to die for and they came with a selection. Four vegetable sides. All great. Finished with a chocolate lava cake with coconut sherbet and meringue with Grand Mariner, caramel and creme Anglaise. I needed a wheel barrel to get home but every calorie was worth it. And the service....fantastic! Our server was totally professional and so friendly. We only wish we could sit at his table every night. Highly recommend.

Valentine’s Day meal in a small, Paris bistro-style restaurant. Meal price and quality outstanding! Wine list excellent and affordable. It was second time that I have eaten here and first for my fiancée. We both enjoyed the prix fixe meal. Large portions. Highly recommend this place. Only negative was that we were seated close to the door and got cold air whenever the door was open.

I hate to write anything less than an excellent review but our experience at La Sirene was truly disappointing. My husband told me to pick a spot for us to go for Valentine's Day--he wanted to take me out for a special dinner because we hadn't had a date night in a while. I had been wanting to try La Sirene for quite a while and a friend had recommended it so I made a reservation. We were really excited but it was quite a disappointment. I will say, the food was great. But the service and experience was very poor. We were seated immediately, which I appreciated, and it was crowded by that's a NYC restaurant on Valentine's Day so I get it. Unfortunately my husband's chair was directly in front of the door and every time it opened it was FREEZING cold air blowing on him, which wasn't great but perhaps can't be avoided. We were given laminated pre-fixe menus by the host and left. For a while. After several minutes I finally caught the eye of a server (I get it, they're busy that's fine) but instead of coming over to welcome us, tell us about the menu/restaurant or offer us a wine list or some water, he just said "Are you ready to order?" Those were literally the first greeting words we received. I would have liked to see a wine list. I would have liked some water. I would have liked him to say hello and make us feel welcome. I asked for water three times before I received it and we were prompted to order right away. We just asked for two glasses of Cabernet (since we had no list to go by) and he said "Malbec" so we said, okay. I asked about an entree and he answered and then said "and which dessert?" well they're kind of half written in French, so I asked him if he could tell us what the four options were, but he just said "these two are the most popular." Fine, we'll have those two.
Still no water. Ordered a second glass of wine but I think he forgot and we didn't receive it until after our entrees were cleared. Had wanted it for my filet.

Dear Katem, thank you for your feedback. We're sorry we didn't live up to your expectations for your Valentine dinner. As you mentioned it is by far the busiest time of the year and we try our best to provide our guests with a memorable experience. Unfortunately space constraints are real in NY restaurants, however you should indeed have received more attentive care during your meal. On a positive note we're glad you enjoyed our cuisine :) Respectfully, Benjamin La Sirene

This is what I perceive to be classic French cooking. It is well prepared and properly served. The rabbit (rather hard to find in New York), and the profiteroles were especially noteworthy.
We sat in a space that felt rather more dark than most places. This was not a problem at all, but should be noted.

Trying a new place out for restaurant week which I haven’t done in years and wanted to give it a try again. Cute restaurant. Table was ready when we got there. Seating is very close to one other. Food came out quick and were tasty. Everyone there pretty much ordered off the restaurant week menu. It’s hard to judge the food based on that cos I feel the portion size would be different for the regular meals.
