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

The main reason we made a reservation at La Sirene was their excellent menu. It had a lot more options than many similar restaurants, and the options were also much more interesting and unique. Our actual dining experience, like the menu, was top notch: exceptional food, perfectly prepared, with friendly, efficient service. We dined outside, and were happy with the semi-enclosed quarters with a very efficient heater.

The food was solid French bistro. The service very attentive. Unfortunately it is right by the entry to the Holland Tunnel, so during rush hour can be a tick noisy if you are outside (we were). My only complaint or raised eyebrow: they require payment by cash or Amex only. I was called prior to my reservation to remind me of this... no problem. However, when it came time to pay the check their Amex credit card machine was not working. We were told, 'it keeps going in and out and takes so long to process'. Conveniently, they had their very own ATM machine located right next to the entryway of the restaurant. I did not have my ATM card, only my Amex, and if my dining partner hadn't had theirs then what would have happened? Washing the dishes? Just seemed a tic weird to me......

We thought this was great. Went for our anniversary and the food was delicious (I thought my goat cheese tart beat DH's escargot, he disagreed--we called rack of lamb and steak with foie gras a win-win.) We sat at a lovely table by the window and everyone was charming. They called ahead to remind us to bring cash, which was helpful.

Dinner at La Sirene was a great culmination to our first visit to NYC in 16 months. While we ate well all week, this was special. The food was mostly great, the steak tartar, the Cassoulet (one of the best we have ever had) and the Tarte Tatin,The pate would count as good. The Cote Du Rhone was very good and the price was fair. Service was attentive without being intrusive and truly we felt we were is a Paris Bistrot. Could not ask for anything more.

The food, service and wine were great. Health measures for indoor dining were observed. What more could you ask for?
Oh yes, a location not near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel. Getting there on foot or by cab at dinner hour can be daunting. But the the meal and ambiance makes up for it, at least partially.
