What Insiders Are Saying
La Sirène has changed a bit over the last few years, but this French cult favorite in a strange part of SoHo is still pretty damn good and pretty damn authentic.
First time ever having Escargot and it was absolutely fantastic. This restaurant carries an amazing wine list as well as top quality food for a great bargain. Would highly recommend 10/10.
My wife and I got engaged here 5 years ago and have been frequenting this establishment every year since for our anniversary. The staff are attentive and genuinely warm and friendly. The food has been consistently superb on every occasion to date. We love this restaurant.
Excellent food and service, top notch. Four gras was outstanding!
We had a wonderful evening thanks to great food and service. A friend who had never been was truly impressed. The tournedos and Cornish hen were spot on, as were the trays of vegetables that are served with every entree and the totally decadent profiteroles we had for dessert.
Great food! My husband and I got the Duck and the Lamb and they were both delicious, as well as the mini ravioli appetizer.
The horrible noise level spoiled everything. I had a sore throat the next day from trying to be heard by my friends throughout the meal. I enjoyed my food a great deal. The roasted pear and blue cheese was delicious. The tournedos Rossini could have better foie gras on it. The croquembouches are truly memorable. But the wine list is only so-so. It was hard to connect to the server due to all the screaming around me, often by people yelling into their phones. Hardly elegant. It's a shame. La Sirène could be so much better than this.
Creole mussels were amazing!
2nd time dining here and such a warm place!
I came here with my husband for date night because this is one of our favorite restaurants in Manhattan. I recommend the truffle ravioli, the escargot, and the cold served foie gras for appetizers. And the for entree, I would recommend the filet mignon and the hanger steak. Both are quite delicious. For dessert, the banana brûlée is their signature and is delicious also - not too sweet.
Food was delicious server were wonderful and very attentive
Good food, friendly service, just relax and enjoy. We came for our anniversary and went home satisfied. The wine was very good, so was the food. We are trying the fondue next door in winter!
This is a lovely authentic non-pretentious French restaurant. Excellent, excellent food. Really. Excellent. Really. Especially loved the escargot. Service was wonderful. Tables a little close together but the place wasn’t crowded since it was a Sunday night so it was perfect. Highly recommend this place. It’s a gem.
The food was really great, the service can be improved as well as the overall environment.
The food was amazing! The restaurant week menu had a lot of options
Had a lovely dinner during restaurant week here. The food and the value for the food was fabulous. They also have a nice wine list. I'd definitely come back for more classic French fare.
A small, charming restaurant with warm, authentically French atmosphere and superb food. The menu is filled with delicious, and in many cases unusual, regional specialties that you won't find elsewhere. Clearly the chef knows and loves these dishes. Everything we ordered was fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. One especially nice touch was that an assortment of vegetables accompanied the meal. The substantial wine list has choices to complement the food, with many selections available by the glass. Service was excellent. The restaurant was filled but we never felt rushed. This is a special place.
I was a little disappointed in the food, the hanger steak was burned, tough and unappetizing, I was expecting something tastier from this higher priced French restaurant, the dessert was good. Also, there were two waiters; the taller one was very nice, the other wasn't friendly or helpful. I don't think I would recommend it based on this one experience.
The dessert was fantastic!
I invited a friend for Sunday lunch during Restaurant Week. I am a vegetarian, she's a carnivore. We both found options we loved--onion soup and gnocchi for me, pate and pork tenderloin for her. The service was attentive and friendly, the ambience charming as in a tiny Parisian restaurant. The noise level was acceptable even though the tables are close set because there was no music--thank heavens! The complimentary vegetables that came to be set between us were a superb surprise--extremely well prepared, delicious and colorful. We ordered a dessert to share and that too, was scrumptious. We would return to this amazing little gem at the first opportunity.
What a wonderful experience my mom and I had at La Sirene! Escargots and mussels (creole) were so delicious. Definitely coming back soon!
We came here for restaurant week based on other good reviews on yelp and google. Ordered onion soup, friends commented too salty, I felt ok. Seared pork tenderloin with cranberry sauce was very soft and tasty. However, the biggest controversy is the steak tartare. It reminds of beef patty in the freezer. Though the taste was fine, the presentation was not very appetizing. Entree sides repeat from appetizer.
ONE OF MY GUESTS ARRIVED AT 6;40 FOR 7PM RESERVATION, SHE WAS RUDELY TOLD THAT SHE WOULD HAVE TO LEAVE AND RETURN AT 7. IT TOOK ALMOST 3 HOURS TO GET THROUGH A DINNER, THE SERVICE WAS TERRIBLY SLOW. THIS WAS A RESTAURANT WEEK FRIDAY NIGHT. THREE OF US ORDERED FROM RW MENU AND ONE FROM A LA CARTE MENU. THERE WAS NOTHING BAD ABOUT THE FOOD, BUT NOTHING NOTEWORTHY EITHER. RABBIT AND SALMON WERE BLAND, DUCK WAS GOOD. HIGHLIGHTS WERE THE VEGETABLES AND THE WINE. REMAINDER OF DUCK WAS TAKEN BY STAFF TO BE PACKED FOR TAKING HOME. IT NEVER REAPPEARED. BILL INCLUDED A SECOND
BOTTLE OF WINE THAT WE NEITHER ORDERED NOR RECEIVED. SERVERS WERE NOT RECEPTIVE TO ANY REQUESTS, SUCH AS SALAD DRESSING ON THE SIDE.
I QUESTIONED THE HOSTESS REGARDING DISMISSAL OF MY GUESTS, RECEIVED EXPLANATION, AND AN ADDITIONAL DESSERT AND A SINGLE AFTER DINNER DRINK WERE COMPED.
SPACE IS VERY SMALL, NO BAR, NO PLACE TO STAND OR SIT WHILE WAITING TO BE SEATED.
Not bad, but waiters do not have good manners, we felt hurried. Rabbit was not really good. Filet was good.
Food very good as usual. Need to tighten up on the sevice (as usual). Sat way to long before a waiter came to the table with menus. Probably would have had another glass of wine.
I haven't had much French cuisine before, but this place was delicious, from the appetizers to the dessert!
The food was alright but it was WAYYYYYY too noisy. My fiancé was sitting two feet from me and I had to use a very loud voice which was pretty tiring. Not good for a romantic date.
Also, the tables are so close to one another so your conversations are heard by other people. It feels a bit as if the restaurant is trying to maximize their profit to table ratio.
I told them we were in a hurry and they indeed brought the final dessert and check to us in a timely manner.
Food was alright but took a while.
Small French restaurant. I personally didn’t like the fact that they don’t take credit cards. A bit of inconvenience even though there is a cash machine in front of the restaurant.
Itis a nice place to have a decent meal.
It was way too warm in there for a summer day.
Service was good. Bread was delicious.
My chicken was ok. Nothing to brag about.
They provide veggies for the table. The string beans were yummy and the squash was great.
Overall a nice place but nothing to write home about
Lovely food and lovely service. I have been here many times and it never disappoints.
I brought my family here for restaurant week and the whole experience was very enjoyable. The appetizers were my favorite. The service was attentive and considerate.
Don't let the location near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel throw you -- this place is worth the trek from SoHo. Authentic bistro fare, very decent wine list, and excellent service and attitude. Escargot, pate, filet with foie gras, lamb chops -- all first rate. Friendly, familiar staff with a warm atmosphere once inside.
Food was ingeneral very good. I liked the Cornish hen very much but my brother didn’t care for the sauce. My wife was very happy with her two appetizers. The pate was ok but too much like hamburger. The wine was very good if pricey. The meringue was good but a little heavy. The service was good when the waiter arrived but I had problems attracting his attention. When serving others he did not look up to see if we needed anything. There was no de caf coffee or plain black tea!
Had my wife’s birthday dinner during Restaurant Week. The appetizer: the tiny ravioli with truffle which were amazing.
The main course: The rabbit with veggies, which was also really good, and juicy.
Overall a great time
They put their best foot forward with their restaurant week menu. The choices were creative, everything was fantastic and it was a good value.
Love this place. Escargots and hanger steak are fantastic.
Cuisine and service were mediocre. The restaurant was quite warm despite the ac. The restrooms were downright hot. Do not think I will be going back there.
Went to La Sirene for lunch during Restaurant Week. Had never been there but will definitely go back. The food was delicious; the bottle of wine we chose was reasonably priced and perfect and the waiter/service was wonderful. We had a wonderful meal and a wonderful experience.
My friend loves all things French so I wanted to surprise her with a belated birthday lunch. This had the most delicious sounding vegetarian options for me out of all the menus I scoured participating in summer 2018 restaurant week. It turns out she had been wanting to come. Delicious food, great portions and kind service. We loved it.
I love this place!!! Third time. Amazing food. We love it and its a great date spot and we have a fun time every time. Thanks to our waiter, who kept pouring the wine.
Lovely venue. Fabian was charming and very helpful in finding a quiet table Food was excellent and generous. Splurge foe seared foie gras.
