Live outside the city, date night, went to the theater, looking for a special and good resturant for dinner after. WOW La Sirene did not let us down. Was running late ( 30 minutes past rservation ), no problem, the woman I spoke with was understanding and reassuring. Held our table, was seated right away. Attentive, polite, warm and friendly staff. Food outstanding, memorable evening. Looking forward to coming back soon!!!

Waiter very bad service. I patronize their establishment many time but for some reason their service & waiter has gotten bad to worse. Ive ask for water 4 times and bread they totally ignore me. Also ask for bread they ignore me and my guest. My guest Ordered hanger steak medium well came out medium rate and waiter started loudly telling the chef ( using our ethnicity to describe us that we do not know how to order) food is great but service is here horrible- and business you treat your frequent customers with RESPECT - i guest they are getting busy & do not need my business

I made a 8:30 reservation and that day received a call from the hostess asking if we could move it to 9. I had no problem with that. The four of us got there exactly at 9. At first we were waiting outside and then they asked us if we wanted to wait at the bar. After we waited for about 20 min, we asked how much longer. She said 5 min. We didn’t get seated until 45 min after 9. That is an hour and 15 min after our original reservation time. I obviously have a bit of a problem with that.


Other than that, the food was amazing. We had the escargot and ravioli to start with. Both were delectable. We had the filet mignon with foie gras. Also, extremely good. For dessert we had the banana one and this other that was a soupy dish. The soupy dish was SO good.

Overall I would return, but either be prepared to wait a ridiculous amount of time or let’s hope they do not do this regularly.

We were looking for a French restaurant in NYC, and happened to come across La Sirene. It is a small place, but that only adds to its charm. The food was absolutely fantastic (the foie gras especially) and the atmosphere perfect for a date/small get-together. Would recommend to anybody in the SoHo area (or anywhere in New York, for that matter)!

I highly recommend this restaurant! We tried many French restaurants includes Quebec city, but this restaurant was better than restaurants in the Quebec city. It is cozy, however the foods are amazing! I will definitely go there again.

I think overall, the restaurant had some great and energetic food. I been here almost 5-6 times in my life. The food was overall consistent. The only thing I could say was some dishes tend to taste better one time and not the other. The sauteed octopus just wasn't as flavorful and was kind of lukewarm when it got to our table. First time we had it, it was sauteed with a brown char and it felt like a really great tapa. Other than that, it was a great meal.

I was looking for a French restaurant to take my partner for his birthday. We both believe to have refined palettes and I didn't want to disappoint his taste buds. So, I went ahead and decided to reserve a table for 2 on their website. I called after to confirm my reservation. Wow. Did I chose the right place or what?! Everything from the service, ambiance and most importantly, the food was excellent. We've both been to France and we both agreed that, this is the closest we've gotten to authentic French in NYC. We couldn't finish all of the food, we had to take some home with us. It was gone before we went to bed. The aroma of the dish lured us back to finish our meal. We will definitely go back again. 5 stars all the way.

I was looking for a special restaurant to impress my husband for our anniversary, and La Sirene was perfect. I had the rabbit and my husband had quail. The shared vegetables were excellent. The banana brûlée is to die for.

Nice, small casual french place in Soho, convenient for a pre-show dinner if going to City Winery, which was our case. The hangar steaks are quite good as was the lamb. The cornish hens were not terribly exciting but the veggies that came for the table were excellent. Our escargots were good as long as not compared to those you get at good places in Burgundy. Pretty good wine list, typically bad french beer list. We would try it again. Service was friendly and understated.

A real gem, food was delicious. We had escargot, so flavorful, goat cheese tart with aged cheese. mouthwatering. Cornish hen perfectly cooked with wonderful moist stuffing, sides of vegetables carrots , potatoes, squash an added treat , duck breast great, banana mousse, and cream filled puff pastry all very good and not overly sweet.
We will be back to try these and other great sounding dishes that this little restaurant has to offer.

Came herewith my husband to celebrate the end of a 7 month training class! It was a cold and rainy November night, you know the kind that screams French food? This place did not disappoint!

I arrived shortly after my husband, cold and wet. He said, they have French onion soup and I said I'll take it! Very well done, perfect proportions of soup, onion, cheese and bread. Just what I needed to get rid of the chill. My husband had the escargot. Now I'll admit, I've never had snail... I don't know what the hell I've been wait for. Absolutely delicious! So glad he shared!

Again, with the weather, and my love of duck confit- I went for the cassoulet. Beautifully prepared, so yummy. And a big enough portion for lunch the next day!

My husband went with the yelp reviews of filet mignon topped with fois gras. That was one of the most amazing things I've ever had. The flavors just were divine!

Service was excellent! Great wine selections. I would definitely come back!

The thing about this place is that they serve REALLY GOOD steak, including filet mignon with foie gras and truffle slices on the top - incredibly flavorful and deluxe taste. The hanger steak was also juicy, fired garlic on top also add texture and flavor to it.
Then apparently I would expect a French restaurant to serve really good quality mussel with savory sauce so that I could dip my bread in it.

However, the mussels weren’t fresh and had sand in them. The creole sauce was just okay. Could pair with bread but I would expect more from a Michelin Star place. Regarding the seafood linguine, the overall flavor was too sour and did not blend with the seafood and linguine very well. Also, there was only ONE scallop in the whole dish but too much linguine, which made me doubt whether this place was trying to fill me up with these linguine.

Indeed, I would recommend trying their steak/poultry dishes, but leave the mussels and seafood linguine out from your choices.
Amélie (another French place in west vill.) has better options regarding seafood and mussels.

Delicious food, but not the value that it was in past years. Particularly enjoyed the lamb and the mussels. Friendly but rushed service. Pleased with our drinks and wine, but wish they still had BYOB. Also wish they still had the prix fixe that is listed on their web page.

what a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with authentic dishes with a twist! Not the restaurant's fault but our dinner was spoiled by a very loud table next to us which seemed to distract the waiting staff. We will be going back and hopefully it will be quieter. The homemade pate and cassoulet were both excellent and the staff and kitchen were wonderfully accommodating to my wife's dietary needs, (celiac), and she really enjoyed her meal as well!

Came here for Restaurant Week just last Thursday. It was disappointing. I ordered the pate de maison for appetizer, it was good but a little bit on the salty side. The rabbit entree was not tender and had too much pepper. At some point I had a mouthful of it coughed. Their profiteroles were awesome but that's it. Service was okay. Nothing outstanding.

As always, La Sirene provided us with a great dining experience. We dined with friends this week with the initial idea of trying the restaurant week menu, but ordered off the regular menu instead. Their wine list you cannot go wrong with and their food is amazing. So decadent and delicious. The staff is friendly, welcoming and helpful. They only accept cash, bitcoin or AMEX, and have an ATM located outside the restaurant.

Everytime we dine here we notice they have expanded - it is very exciting as they run a great restaurant and deserve to prosper. We have always enjoyed every item we have ordered. Must try items include the pate, escargot, foie gras, mussels, lamb, filet topped with foie gras, and of course the profiteroles.
