La Sirene was a great place to eat French cuisine. Although I was surprised to find, upon arrival that they only accepted American Express and cash as forms of payment. Happy that I never leave home without an Amex in my wallet.

La Sirene, was everything we expected and more. We had an outside table on a beautiful Oct 2nd evening. The service was very good, our server was friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic, the escargot was as good as I've had and the quail was the best I've had in years. I would definitely recommend this eatery!

Food was mediocre (escargot:good, foiegras: mediocre, filet mignon: mediocre, and sides:subpar) and definitely didn’t appreciate the fact that all the service staff were maskless and our waiter was sniffing (runny nose? Allergies? COVID?) the entire time while speaking with us. If you’re having any abnormal symptoms, the least you can do is put on a mask. We left thinking we might have caught something. Hopefully it wasn’t COVID.

Came here during Restaurant Week and absolutely love the food, service, and vibe. The flavors at La Sirene were exquisite and the texture had great contrast. I thought the portion sizes were reasonable and left full. 10/10 would recommend! From the RW menu, we got French Onion Soup, Pate, Tenderloin w/ cranberry sauce, and Beef Tartare. From regular menu, we also got the escargots and truffle ravioli to try. All items were yum!

Excellent food - escargot, homemade pate, quail and hanger steak - everything was delicious and beautifully served. The house Bordeaux well selected and worked very nice with our meal. We left happy and will be back soon. The only negative comment - they don't take Visa, so need to carry more cash than I usually carry around.

Four-star rating is due to the fact that my companion was kept waiting outside for five minutes for no reason. She was told I had not yet arrived, but I had, ten minutes before, and had checked in with the maitre d' and been seated. My companion is 81 years old and it was NOT COOL to keep her standing outside waiting like that due to lack of proper communication between staff and front-of-the-house.

The food was excellent and our waiter was charming, so we will be back and hope that was just an unfortunate glitch.

A bargain meal for restaurant week with really good food. The wine list is far too limited for a French oriented restaurant and the wine prices are not commensurate with the quality served.

Wonderfully authentic French cooking. My salad, red snapper and vegetables were all superb. And the profiteroles were simply amazing. The prices are actually quite reasonable, too. It's pretty small, so I would recommend going early or late (and always booking a reservation.)

I chose this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
I had high hopes after reading outstanding reviews but was disappointed.

Our server was rushing us to select our entree right after we ordered our starters, and rudely said the kitchen is very busy.
We had escargot, French onion soup and mussels in white wine-/the first two with bitter burnt bits, totally destroying the appetite.
When another server came to ask about our food, we mentioned this and he just walked away without saying anything or at least an offer to let the kitchen know.

We ordered the filet mignon and the duck breast. Both meats were cooked perfectly, however the duck did not need to swim in too much sauce. Sides were served separately and they were just okay. We skipped dessert and just wanted to end the dinner.

This restaurant only accepts cash and Amex, and the hostess AND server will not fail to mention this.

Dear Anne, thank you for your feedback. We're sorry about the mixed experience with the service. Rest assured we always strive to improve customer experience. We have been trying to hire floor staff for months, mostly unsuccessfully, as are so many small businesses across the country. We hope things will get back to normal soon enough so that we can provide an ever better service to our guests. Sincerely, Benjamin La Sirene
