This is a restaurant we never had the chance to dine in...
And we were very glad we did....due to covid19 regulations
we were seated outside in the tent and the temperature did go down
during our time but the ambiance was great, the servers were very friendly
and the food was amazing specially all beef items and the mini truffle ravioli.
the wine selection was very good. We had a nice 2008 red wine from italy.
It was the last bottle they had and it was amazing.
We would dine here again and we hope they can figure out how they will
manage the colder weather seating outside.
The food was memorable, as always. It's my go-to place to take guests for dinner when they come to the Upper West Side
Wonderful dinner. Great food, service, outdoor seating! We had the seared duck breasts and the filet mignon and both we prepared perfectly. The menu has so many great options it was hard to choose and I don't think you can go wrong with any choice.
We ate outside and they have done a wonderful job of creating a safe but fun atmosphere. The staff as always was perfect as the food!
Great Service, Great appetizers, Great desserts, entrees need to be elevated a bit. Specifically the Steak Tartar which was a bore..
Love La Sirene outdoor dining, especially the cabanas on the side. Lovely evening out.
Fabulous on every level. Escargot and hanger steak fabulous and vegetables to table were outstanding.
Great food great service
Lovely French bistro with consistently delicious food. The staff is gracious and generous. They have found a way to create a very pleasant outdoor environment -- alas, we are not Miami to enable a longer period of outdoor dining. Still, go and enjoy! You won't be disappointed. It's my favorite restaurant on the UWS.
Great meal. My hanger steak was amazing. Service was excellent. My server suggested a wine I liked immediately and I’m picky. Highly recommend.
Great food and AMAZING service!!!!!
Love this place!
Had dinner here twice this week and both were great. Had a nice private and covered table outside for social distancing. Staff was great as was the food and wine.
My salad was a wee boring but duck was excellent and perfectly spiced. My husband said escargot were excellent and he ate all the delicous bread . The waiter brought more bread, its baked there on premises. Tastes like the best baguette in Paris. Husbands rack of lamb also perfectly cooked and spiced. We drink mostly Cali reds, and dont know French wines, but waiter knew what we were looking for and recommened a wonderful bottle.
Such great French food as we hadn’t had in a long time. Service is very nice and fast. Great experience!
Very traditional French food. Rather dated, but very good and overall a very pleasant evening.
Great food and service. The outside dining was set up well.
I really love this restaurant. This is the second time I have eaten here and the service and the food are excellent. They have a lovely set-up for outdoor dining where you feel safe and comfortable. The servers were extremely nice, attentive and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the Goat Cheese Tart and Magret de Canard. The wine list was also really nice with a good mix of reasonably priced wines.
Lovely night out with outdoor dining. So glad to see La Sirene open. Excellent food and service - would definitely go back.
Great food and great service! The duck breast, the salmon tartar, the everything was delicious!
Attentive and responsive staff. We really felt comfortable and food was terrific. Will be back
My first trip to the UWS location. Oh, the vegetable tray...
We had a very enjoyable early brunch, with fluffy omelets and fresh fruit. We would definitely return.
We’ve eaten here before. This time all the food was not as good. The pommes frites were thick and not as crispy. The filling in the cream puffs was too heavy with Grand Marnier. The best salad was good however.
Always a great meal served by helpful and friendly staff.
My sister and I had such a lovely lunch at La Sirene that I could almost forget, at least for a few minutes, that the world is still burning. However, in those minutes, I ate an omelette with caramelized onions, potatoes and chives that was wonderful! The fries were a tad too crispy and salty for my taste, but my sister's side salad was nicely dressed. I should've have ordered that - who has fries with an egg dish with potatoes in it? Our waitress was attentive, but also gave us plenty of time to sit and enjoy a beautiful New York summer day.
We had our first outdoor dinner at La Sirene UWS on the 19th. The food was absolutely spectacular, as good as ever -- perhaps even better, We started with the beet salad, followed by racks of lamb and Peche Melba. The service was wonderful -- warm, efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable.
We sat at a table on West 80th Street, under the canape. It was quiet, the view was wonderful, and the gentle summer breezes added to the ambience. All in all, a wonderful, memorable, meal.
We visited for the second time for my mom’s 85th birthday. Delicious food and great service!
Food was very good and service was very friendly and attentive
A nice bit of "normal" in these times. Great food and great service. Thanks!
Had the escargot and comte cheese ravioli were to die for!!! The seafood linguine had a ton of seafood and oh sooo delicious. This is my French go to spot!
Delicious cheese ravioli appetizer. Yum! Great sliced duck with sauce. Oh my!
LaSirene has made the absolute most of their outdoor space, with cafe seating in the front and "booths" along the side. First dining out experience for us in the new normal could not have been better! Ps. Get the Steak Tartare and finish with the Croquembouche!!!
Delicious food and loved the complimentary veggie dish. Very reasonable prices as we shared 2 appetizers, an entree, dessert, and a bottle of wine for less than $150 for two. Great service and passionate about their food. We had the steak tartare, escargot, lamb chops, and peach melba. Would recommend all of these dishes as they were very tasty, fresh, and cooked/seasoned perfectly.
Always exceptional service and food. Extremely COVID19 compliant. One of my favorite rwstaurants in NYC so glad to see them thriving post COVID19 they deserve it. Can't wait to go back for more!
Wonderful meal and service. The outdoor seating is comfortable, socially distanced and nicely calm.
Food is not good, very greasy, poor quality meat. Would not recommend, especially for the price - was very disappointed.
Dear Patron, We are very sorry that we didn't live up to your expectations. We want to assure you that our chef goes the extra mile to select the best quality ingredients he can source, especially with meats, and we partner with reputable distributors such as North American Meats or Paris Gourmet. If you give us another chance, please make sure to let your server know if anything isn't right and we will always make it right immediately. Respectfully, Benjamin La Sirene
Very pleasant restaurant. Excellent paté de campagne and wonderful croquembouches for dessert (and two of them were great for breakfast the next morning!). Friendly service. Nice setup, with little cabana-type barriers set up to keep social distance between diners.
This was our first dining experience since covid began and it was such a wonderful evening. We were celebrating our anniversary and could not have asked for a more perfect evening. Our server Julio was very charming and attentive. The food was also fabulous. We will definitely be returning.
Amazing meal - at first glance the prices for brunch were higher than I expected, but then I realized that there were multiple sides that come with each main course. So good and such kind/conscientious staff. Can't wait to come back.
We ate at La Sirene during phase 2...so we ate outside. The food was delicious. The service was excellent and prompt...attentive without being overly attentive. Because we ate outdoors (which was very pleasant) the noise level was entirely dependent on the amount of traffic in the street (which was light to moderate). I have in the past and will continue to recommend this restaurant highly....it is a real French restaurant.
