All was great. The noise level however was unusually high because the restaurant was adding an outside awning near out table.
The food was good as always, the service is suffering and needs attention to details, however due to the noise level from a large private party could not wait to finish and leave. The restaurant is ill equipped to host large rambunctious groups, they large party is within the dining area with not separation for noise control. If you wish to enjoy a nice quiet dinner this may not be the place especially when hosting large parties.
Sad to watch the decline of this restaurant. From service including the hostess whose cold welcome started things off on a sour note to the drinks, food quality and even the torn upholstery on the banquettes, this former gem needs some polishing.
We enjoyed an appetizer of mussels and for dinner one had the veal chop parmigiana which was tender and delicious and the red snapper dinner was prepared very well. The service was good and the ambiance was nice. The menu has limited choices and no substitutions and the prices are a bit high.
Red snapper and halibut delicious. Also had eggplant appetizer very good. The restaurant has a romantic cozy setting.
This evening was such a disappointment. It began with the hostesses who were not very welcoming and seem to be bothered when we gave our name and reservation time. While we sat and waited for our table, we observed several parties who walked in, some with reservations and some without, all being treated with the same disdain. When we were seated, the hostess just placed the menus on the table and walked away. Our waitress was pleasant but not very attentive. When the entrees were served, we asked for bread since it was not offered nor served. Our waitress did not return to our table until we were done with our meal. Not once did she stop by our table to inquire if everything was satisfactory. As always, the food was delicious but the whole experience left a bad taste in our mouths. As we were standing outside, another group of women were leaving and we overhead them complaining of both the awful service and food. It is such a shame as Sirena has been our favorite restaurant for many years. Sadly, we do not plan on returning and will be looking for a new restaurant where our business will be appreciated and we can have an overall pleasant dining experience.
Food and service is always 1st rate. Everyone is so accommodating to extent you can. One of our top 3 places to go
Food was outstanding. The view of the ocean is amazing. We dined outside. The veal chop parm is awesome. The wife loved the scallops and daughter enjoyed the mussels. The caeser salad was average. Surprised there was no bread served. Service was very slow but very friendly. All in all a great visit.
Service was terrible. Ordered salad first then entree. Took an hour and both came together. Waitress said we ordered it that way. NOT. She never came back. ( I sent salad back) Asked for check and she brought it. Made a big to do that she didn’t charge for salad. Waitress never came for payment. I just paid and left. Also entree was overcooked. Before dinner we sat at bar and bar maid was very unpleasant to us. This is a customer friendly industry. Very disappointed. Also had to wait extra half hour to be seated with reservations. ( that is standard here).
Sirena has never disappointed. The food is always delicious. The view is amazing. I go any chance I can get there. Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants.
Hostess was very helpful & friendly, waiter was knowledge and thorough
Service just seems to have dropped off a bit, seems to be the norm at many places recently.
Excellent service and view and food
Understaffed, slow, hostess was clueless, plastic piece in my pasta… has gone downhill.
Always a wonderful experience at Sirena!
The bolognese is the absolute best around!
Freddie, our server, is a gem and such an asset to your wonderful restaurant. Thank you for a great time. Can’t wait to go back!
A great destination for excellent Italian food. The outdoor deck is next to the beach with fabulous views. This has become a go to stop when I'm heading to the Jersey Shore. Pizzas are delicious, well, everything is delicious. They are super accommodating for any request. The wait staff are so nice. It's a dream restaurant I'd you want a view of the ocean and hang out with friends.
Wonderful all around dining experience.
Had a reservation, obviously. Walked in to see a ton of open tables and wasn’t seated for close to 20 mins. Waited another 20 mins for someone to even come over to our table. Our waitress was awesome. She had to come out and check on us twice to see if we ever received our food. Place wasn’t even busy. Hostess was being nasty.
ambience was very enjoyable, noise level good will be returning.
Always great food. Beautiful ocean views from inside or out. Really nice cocktails and they do not gouge you on wine - great wine at reasonable price points. I appreciate that. Out go-to place for special occasions.
Restaurant was very loud. It was difficult to have a conversation without shouting. The food was good but not great. Beautiful views of the ocean.
Always wonderful experience! The specials are always amazing and we love Raoul at the bar. A long branch perennial fav.
Beautiful views of the Ocean along with excellent food and service.
It's a combination you can't beat.
Calamari is to die for. We had 3 different entries and the were perfect.
Bronzini, veal parmigiana , and veal maleness
Toni was a great server and the food was excellent
We didn't expect to be charged to split our salad appetizer!
Any restaurant with an unobstructed view of the beach starts off with an advantage and Sirena has one of the best beach views in NJ. We had a mix of fish, seafood, veal and steak and all of it was very good. Appetizers and salads were also very good, if a bit pricy.
The only negatives I would cite are that the noise level is high - definitely not a place for those craving quiet and the fact that despite having a confirmed reservation seating took about 20 minutes.
Ac was clearly broken. I had booked this reservation in advance. Not sure why I was seated in the bar. When we realized the AC was not working we asked if we could be moved to one of the many tables outside. The hostess told us we would need to wait 15 minutes. I don’t think we will be back.
Food was excellent, great service, restaurant vibe was not that great, too busy many people complaining. Would come back for food again.
Love lunch overlooking the beach on Sirena’s deck. Food was wonderful. And our waiter a dream considering he was servicing the entire lunch deck alone. Unfortunately the restaurant needs a pick me up. Furniture getting worn and a good scrub and restroom makeover are in order. Let’s bring back the Sirena’s I loved from years ago.
Wine and food was excellent. However, they were short staffed.
Food was amazing, clean and very friendly atmosphere
Have been to Sirena a few times over the past few years and thoroughly enjoy the restaurant though yesterday was especially outstanding. Maybe it was the wind driven palm trees that made for a wonderful ambience, the halibut was exceptionally delcicious (as was the presentation), the shrimp, the salads, the wine choices - everything was off the hook. But our server Toni, was just the definition of a perfect server, her mannerisms, timing, sense of friendliness without being overly so, a nice smile, knowledgable about the food and winechoices - just made for a top 10 meal. Please let her know how special we thought she was. The 3 cousins
Good food, great service. The salads were great! And the pasta yummy!
Wait service was awful
Great Food . We had a great Waiter. Enjoyed our dinner tremendously. Thank you !
