I took a friend out for a treat birthday lunch ... the view is lovely, the place is still nice, and the food is a cut above, but the cost and the service really let this place down. The waiter basically disappeared halfway through the meal, never checked in; no one refilled water glasses or asked if we wanted a refresher on wine. Literally had to go to the hostess stand to pay the check so that we could leave to make a meeting. At these lunch prices this kind of negligent service is inexcusable. Disappointing.

David, our waiter, was extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. The food was extremely good and so was the alcohol. However, the price point is still a bit high. There’s no reason to have to pay $18 for a drink of MaCallan scotch.

The quality of the food has decreased significantly. Not worth the price, it is a very nice place with less than adequate service.

Place is great. Service and food very good. The girl that seared us was miserable. Not even a hello or smile. Not the person you want greeting people.

The food and service was excellent. The waiter and food runners were very polite. The noise level was a little too loud for the style of restaurant it was but there were multiple parties in the restaurant.

This place is my favorite in Pier Village. They never disappoint! Service is great, the food is delish. Ask for the banquet/booth, so cozy. Try the eggplant, Bronzino, clams in white wine sauce and pasta fagioli. All good!

Ordered $50 bottle of white wine and never got an ice bucket. Never served water and had to ask for bread. Pasta special with scallops, fish and rock shrimp was in fact one scallop 2 tiny tiny rock shrimp and all fish. Pasta was gummy. Worst experience I’ve had there

We were a party of 8 and all of our food was terrible. I had to send my veal milanese back because it was so overlooked that I couldn’t even stick my fork in it. Other people in my party had pasta and fish and these dishes were so so. It was also my 20th anniversary and I made that known when I made my reservation, but when we received our dessert, the waiter did not acknowledge our special occasion. The waiter was attentive in the beginning, but then he got busy and our table was neglected. The only thing that this restaurant has going for it is the ocean view. We will not be back again.

Overall ambience is great. Food was hit or miss. Biggest issue was the service. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and I had clearly mentioned to her a candle with the dessert we order and they didn’t get it. They spoilt our birthday celebration. I have never seen such terrible experience with any restaurant. Will def not recommend.

Terrible experience. The hostess was very rude. It took 15 minutes to even ask you if we wanted a drink. The food was mediocre. My husband didn’t receive his entree until the rest of my family was finished eating. Definitely would not recommend this restaurant

Lived here 7 years and never been, I guess my perception was that it was more upscale but it was right in the middle of the road, we wore capris and sandals and were fine. My mom came to visit and really wanted to go there so I tried it. We got a later reservation and wanted to sit outside, table was ready a few minutes early and the outside seating was really cute... nice breeze, cute little lights,comfortable atmosphere. Only downside was we were right next to water station for servers and they keep the dirty rags to wipe the tables on the railing post. So 1-- that was gross to look at during my meal and 2-- they didnt sanitize between wiping tables just used the same old rags all night. Our server was not young but seemed inexperienced or just going through the motions for the money. Our food came out quick and water kept full, but he never offered a second drink from the bar and never offered dessert which we actually wanted, he was MIA for 15 minutes after we finished dinner (another girl cleared our plates) and then he just dropped the check and walked away. The other 2 servers outside were much more attentive to their tables and were buzzing around quickly. So it was a little awkward and disappointing ending to the meal. To spend $150 and leave feeling a little unappreciated. But the food was delicious (highly recommend the brussel sprouts and the mushroom ravioli) and portions were bigger then I expected. Overall I would recommend going here. Just left feeling underwhelmed at the end... and still craving some tiramisu, even today as I type this!!

Everything about Sirena was excellent - from the food, to the wait staff and the atmosphere. The filet mignon and veal chop were prime and the sangria was excellent. We would highly recommend it! Too bad there isn’t a sister restaurant in North Jersey!

The service this time was subpar. The two bus persons were very poorly trained young people who did not have a clue. After telling the bus girl to wrap the pizza, my granddaughter was finished with, she approached the table with her next dish and there was no room on the table. So instead of first removing the pizza and then serving the second dish, she just stands there until one of us at the table starts moving the dishes and hands her the pizza, really??? The bus boy couldn't figure out where to place anything.

The waiter was experienced, but was working tables from one end of the restaurant into the bar. After two hours we wanted to pay the check and leave, but he was no where to be found. Someone had to go and find him. This is not our normal experience here.

Very mediocre food and some not good at all for a high price. Bad bread, frozen butter, not enough staff, my appetizer description was written poorly and I would have never ordered it. Not a great night out and I wouldn’t recommend eating here.

We ate outside on a beautiful summer evening and really enjoyed the great ocean view. Food was very good but pricey. Pasta dishes were $24 to $27. Seafood and meats were $30 and up. When my wife checked in for our Open Table reservation, the hostess noted she was 8 minutes early and made her wait, even though the table was already cleared and set.

The drinks came quickly but it took a good 20 minutes more for the waiter to come back to take our dinner order. We thought maybe because it was busy but even as our meal ended and barely anyone was left in the restaurant he was still clearing tables with no ppl at them instead of coming to take away our dinner dishes and take our dessert order. The food was good. All the appetizers pizza and sides came at the same time which was caused no room on the table for all of it, let alone the ability to eat it all in one course. The The appetizers were better than the mains.

The kale salad with salmon was delicious. The bread was also delicious and I’m fussy about bread. Beautiful view of the beach and ocean. Perfect place to catch up with girlfriends for lunch.

The overall experience was very good. The ambiance and energy in the restaurant was exceptional. The service was extraordinary, and the food was very good except my scallops were seared too long and not tender. The risotto that accompanied the dish lacked flavor. My friend had the pappardelle pasta with meat was exceptional.

Bit of a wait even with reservations. You can't reserve outside - they make you queue up once you get there and the wait was - no joke! - 3 hours, so that was a shame. Waitress came over promptly, but we needed a few minutes for our drink order, and then proceeded to take at least 10 minutes to come back. So figure out what you want to drink immediately, so you aren't waiting. Overall, very good food and the view on the beach is amazing!
