I’ve never really experimented with strictly French cuisine other than french fries LOL, but this place was absolutely phenomenal! I brought my wife there for her birthday who has been badgering me for at least 10 years to go to a French restaurant so I looked up a couple places in the area and this place had high ratings, so I figured we would check it out. And I must say I am very highly impressed, from the food, to the waitstaff, to the hostess. I absolutely recommend this restaurant. I had the fillet and my wife had the rack of lamb, dynamite! And I would highly suggest the house Bordeaux wine if you’re into that sort of thing. Cheers

Food was ok. Apps were pretty average. Cassoulet good but everyone else’s entrees were “fine”.

Good food , good service...was a little surprised to find that the sparkling water was $14 a bottle. While I understand the need fr a markup, this was a little absurb.

La Sirene had a special menu for Valentines Day. Four wonderful courses. Started with salad which had the best peppery vinaigrette dressing I have ever tasted. Next I had the goat cheese tart and my husband had escargot. Main course, Filet Mignon with fois gras, hubby had rack of lamb. Dessert- lava cake with coconut sorbet and the best profiteroles. French Bistro music. Great staff. We had the perfect evening

Booked this restaurant for an early Valentine's dinner. Thoroughly enjoyed the food. All of it was outstanding as was the wine. The pate and beet salad starters were excellent, followed by the duck and tournedos rossini as mains. For dessert we had a strawberry pastry dessert and a banana brulee. Again fresh, delicious, outstanding. Excellent wine selection as well. Would love to eat here again.

The food was great and the service very friendly and responsive. The ambiance was happy and relaxed. The bread was fresh and soft, and good in melted garlic butter. The curry and cream mussels appetizer was amazing - lovely flavor and fun to eat. The filet mignon with full-bodied fois gras was prepared just right, and delicious. The sides were good (sweet potato, string beans, carrot puree, mashed potato, simply done), and the wine was good. We finished by sharing a big profiteroles, refreshing and nice bitter chocolate, and rolled out into the night. A thoroughly nice evening!

We received a call the day of our reservation asking us to change our time to later to help them out. We arrived approximately 10 minutes early for our newly agreed on reservation time and were aggressively told to come back in exactly 10 minutes... not a great start. The location is small and cramped, staff don't seem to care that you have to practically crawl over the table next to you to get into your seat. There were a few standout dishes served, which were the ravioles with truffle and the Cornish game hen (which was actually standard chicken), but were full of flavor. The French onion soup and steak were pedestrian. Desserts were altogether lackluster... including the canned whipped cream instead of taking slight effort to make their own. Had all of our dishes had the same flavor consistency of the standouts this place would be a neighborhood gem.

Met up with my grown daughters for dinner. We thought French food would be a nice change. This restaurant was close to where two of us work. We went during restaurant week and got the fixed price menu. The food was tasty and the portions were sized right. Would have like to have seen more French wines on the wine list. We would come back. Bon appétit!

I came in for lunch during restaurant week and the place was extremely quiet and the staff was very kind and accommodating. The food came out quickly and was delicious! If you like French food I definitely recommend.

Came to La Sirene with my girlfriend for restaurant week and wasn’t disappointed! The food was absolutely amazing. We each had our own appetizer and it was the perfect amount of food. If you came here with someone else and we’re looking to split the app, however, I’d imagine you’d end up still hungry due to the small portions. Service was a bit slow but still great.

For food I’d recommend the ravioli for an appetizer. The hanger steak was also delicious but I’ll admit the Cornish hen smelled so good. The banana creme brûlée was also tasty!

The Staff here is Wonderful! The food was too. It is very small and the tables are close together but we New Yorkers are used to that. The meal was so good that I want to go back very soon. The Staff is Friendly and gets an A+ from me. There was only one thing that I did not like about our experience. It is a BYOB Restaurant. They charge a very reasonable fee, $10.00, to uncork your wine. The problem for me is that for two people you can ONLY have one bottle of wine. I brought two and offered to pay more to uncork the second bottle. They just will not allow more than one bottle for two people.

Restaurant week menu was a good deal. Food was delicious, portions are good, service was fast and pleasant. We tried steak tartar, pork, mussels were excellent. Caramel dessert was awesome.

Great meal with Restaurant Week. Had lunch today and already booked to return weekday for dinner. Great country style comfort French food. All prepared to perfection. Banana desserts and ice cream seemed to be homemade, not too sweet- was divine. Great little neighborhood gem - we actually came from the upper westside.

Poorly washed water glasses . Fork and knife placed on the actual table. How is that hygienic ? He place feels squashed , small and too many people . Food served in diner type plates . Poor diner style food presentation . You pour your own water that stands in the table .
Overall , would not recommend .
