    What a lovely evening! Our lovely host was also our server, probably due to the late hour, and we were fortunate to have the little miniature ravioli - as according to the menu - a rare find. Even the bread and butter were superb. The Goat Cheese tartlet comes with a little salad and is fantastic for a late night bite. We had our dessert at a party before dinner so we didn't get to try anything from the dessert menu. I guess we'll just have to come back again....twist my arm!

    I've been meaning to come to this place for a while. Finally did yesterday and so glad to finally dine there. Service was excellent - knowledgeable, friendly staff. Food was perfectly prepared and the wine pairings were fantastic. Very comfortable, cozy room. I look forward to returning to La Sirene.

    Everything was fine except that my wife’s main course, the fish of the day, was over cooked. And I don’t just been a little bit over cooked. It was so over cooked that you had do use a knife to cut off a bite. It’s a pretty good place otherwise. But this is a very big exception, when it’s the centerpiece of the entire experience.

    We have dined here several times for both brunch and dinner. This place is a gem. It is a small, intimate space with very nice outdoor tent seating as well. Decor is French country in style, dark woods and colorful paintings and French posters on the walls. They have a full bar and mix drinks very well and generously. The staff always seem happy and proud of the place which adds to the pleasure of dining there. On this particular evening service was just a little bit slow at times , though it was otherwise very attentive as usual. The food is unexpectedly great for a small place on the corner of Amsterdam and 80th St. that doesn’t get a lot of press. In the several times we have been there we have never had a dish we did not either love or like a lot. The goat cheese tart is a signature item on both the dinner and brunch menus and is a must. The baked pear with Gorgonzola appetizer was outstanding. We also had the salmon and red snapper entrées, both of which were cooked to perfection and delicious. The wine list is very reasonable and we had a delicious Rhône wine to complement the meal. One of our friends is a stickler for French onion soup and pronounced theirs to be delicious as well. This has rapidly become one of our “go to“ places in New York City

    Lovely outdoor seating area. Had the goat cheese tart and the popover. The tart was pretty heavy, but the salad and fries cut it nicely. The popover was larger than I expected, but it was mostly empty air inside which made it much lighter, which was a pleasant surprise.

    It's OK, but nothing special either as far as the food goes or the atmosphere. Prices however are distinctly on the high side. And then there is that 4% surcharge to the bottom line if you pay with a credit card.

    This restaurant is generally rated highly but we could not figure out why. The inside the banquette seat was too high for the table, the opposite chair too low; very uncomfortable. The painted palm trees on the windows are straight out of tiki-bar land. There were artificial plants everywhere. The first things that jumped out in the menu were the description of the horrible treatment of ducks to make foie gras and the highlighted additional fee for use of a credit card. This affected our appetites but we forged ahead. The food was slightly above average . Although the creole mussels lacked spice. The side vegetables were bland. The pork was cooked nicely but the whole rasberries in the sauce made it a bit gritty. Putting a flower on a plate is not presentation. The service was friendly and attentive. Could be such a great place, good potential but just off the mark.

    The Food was good, but I've had much better. There was no "wow, this is delicious moment." Escargot appetizer was nothing special, nor was the "french ravioli" which was served in a heavy cream sauce with 2, count 'em, tiny truffle slices. I had the filet with fois grois, very small piece of filet for $50. My companions had the duck and the salmon. The desserts were also nothing special. Dinner with wine and tip was over $450 for 3 people. That's a lot of money for nothing special. I won't be back

    A real gem. Unpretentious but delicious French. The escargots were as good as I've had anywhere. The Linguini fruits de la mer had a substantial mixture of items, all perfectly prepared, not overcooked, with an nice al dente saffron soaked pasta base. Sat outside on a perfect spring day, utterly relaxing, with patient and well timed service.

    Escargot was delicious, as was our duck. Husband had chicken livers and he loved them. My daughter had the pasta with seafood and she enjoyed it. They were a little short staffed, I think. It was very busy and there were only 2 people waiting on all the tables. We will definitely return for the great selection of appetizers and entrees.

    Lunch perfection. You get the same great food, decor, wine selection (by the glass), service, and intimacy by day without the usual crowds, noise, and "faux scène" that invades for dinner. Smaller menu, which is fine; and the bloody mary is formidable! Plenty of outdoor seating; just continued excellence from this hood treasure. Bon apetit!
