                                    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!

                                    If you LOVE really authentic French food, La Sirene is for you! The food was AMAZING and the service was very good. We had a 7:30 rese and at that time, the noise level was OK. But by 8:30, it was really loud. The place is tiny...cozy...the noise is to be expected but that is the one thing that detracts from the total experience here.

                                    I was very pleasantly surprised by this little "neighborhood gem" and feel fortunate to have such a truly authentic French table d'hote so close by. Loved the house salad with small cubes of apple and mango (their sweetness goes so nicely with the sharp taste of the radicchio and endive), nicely cooked cornish game hen and perfectly prepared platter of mixed vegetable (delicious pureed carrots, crisp green beans and sauteed zucchini). Very nice large by the glass pours, and for dessert I happily found the wonderful Poire Belle Helene I'd recently been Jonesing for. I was reminded of some of the wonderful meals enjoyed in France when traveling with the carefree ease of Pre Covid life! The price tag for a meal here isn't a bargain, however the high quality of the ingredients used is quite apparent.

                                    We had an early reservation so the restaurant was very quiet. We were made to feel very welcome and were seated in very comfortable chairs. The house white and red wines were more than acceptable. An order of French onion soup was pronounced delicious by one diner. The seared foi gras was outstanding. Pate was very good and the beet and goat cheese salad rounded out the appetizers. The entries included the special of black bass "wonderful" 2 orders of steak and excellent duck breast. Deserts were the Pear Helene and profiteroles. We all left totally satisfied and would definitely go back.

                                    Delicious food and the person who served us was wonderful with my 4-year-old daughter. I recommend the croque-madame, the banana cream dessert (plenty of Grand Marnier!) and the fondant au chocolat, which was everything a fondant au chocolat should be and more.

                                    I almost hate to write a review for fear this will be too crowded. I have been here for Sunday brunch and several dinners. Every single one has been a joy. It t transports you too too and intimate French country Auberge. Do not miss the goat cheese torte. But we have never had a dish that wasn’t delicious. The service is warm and the staff clearly are proud of their product. Love this place.

                                    This restaurant never disappoints. The gentleman who is usually there, not sure if he’s an owner, provides some of the best service ive ever received. Has a family run feel to it, food is excellent, space is cozy and intimate.

                                    Most wonderful dinner. A hidden jewel on the UWS. Have been 3 times and never disappointed. The crispy skin on the red snapper entry is out of this world. The mini “sensual” raviolis starter in an iron pot are creamy, and yes, very sensual. The blackberry tartlet for desert was also wonderful. Service is very attentive and friendly. Their tiny little spot is a little worse for wear but that makes it all the more delightful. Tables are well spaced and the noise level was fine. Not your average French bistro - much more interesting and creative menu. Only knock on it would be that the wine list is pretty limited. But the House Bordeaux was very nice. A bit more expensive but worth every penny.

                                    Absolutely incredible - the food was beyond decadent. Escargots and salad, the mussels and ravioli, the fresh red snapper with crispy skin and veggies, finally the mixed berry tart! Our new favorite place, thank you for everything!

                                    Absolutely delightful… the intimate space in this bistro was so refreshing… the cuisine was wonderful.. particularly: the best Escargot I’ve had in NYC… the Rack of Lamb was a perfect medium rare and the accompanying plate of vegetables was a visual and tasteful pleasure…& the ‘molten chocolate cake was fantastic !! So thankful to have found this extraordinary place!!

                                    Made reservation for four at specific table at 6:30..... we came in at 6:15 table; had been given out. The head waiter claimed that that table had been reserved three weeks earlier, which looked highly improbable for 2 people on a four top with shopping bags on the other two chairs. The kitchen prepared one salmon medium well done, though black and blue was explicitly requested and written on the order by the waiter.... he delivered it anyway and then when called back offered to redo the dish, but by that time the other diners had started and they would have had to wait. He did credit the dish though. Otherwise we had a fair dinner and enjoyed it, but not good performance for the price.

                                    Appetizing, tasty, healthy, food . Apart from our to deliciously prepared main courses (grilled salmon with shitake mushrooms and thinly sliced, delicately prepared magret de canard, we particularly appreciated the vegetable side dish with its original combination of tastes,textures, and colors. Great cook,pleasant, efficient service.
