    Nothing creative or exotic about the menu. They focus on making the staples of Italian food and doing it well. Being on the water is a nice plus. Would eat there again.

    An amazing meal. Had calamari & peppers with fennel appetizer, chicken scarparello & pork chop with long hots. Dessert the flourless choc cake. Ambience is awesome! Highly recommend!

    Food is always constant but service follows a different path. From when you go to check in to the minute you pay your check it’s as if no one cares if you ever come back. So I won’t be back. Servers never come around and the appetizers come without serving spoons. The service needs seasoning

    Service was terrible. Saw the waiter 4 times. When he asked about what type of water we wanted, When he took our order, and when he gave us desert menus, and when he gave us our bill (didn’t even give us a pen) Didn’t come by to take a second drink order, didn’t ask how the meal was, didn’t come and ask if we wanted desert (just gave us desert menus).

    Good food, good location, attentive servers. The concierge / greet staff are a mess. Arriving at this place is always chaotic and unpleasant. Getting seated is a stressful experience. If they clean up and get organized this will be an all around great spot

    We live just across the street so we go here several times during the summer months. They have raised their prices way too much and way too fast. They took away the happy hour items we loved for years. Its now hard to waive down a water due to short staffing issues all place now have to deal with. They do give a lot of clams with their Vongole dish.

    We have NEVER been treated in such a disgusting manner! We called because we were delayed 10 minutes in traffic (Trump rally). The hostess ignored my call and said she would give our reservation away if we were 15 minutes late (even though I called). Upon arrival - 10 minutes late, we WAITED 45 MINUTES for a table even though the restaurant was NOT BUSY. We were seated outside (fine) but in the area where THEY PUT TRASH/GARBAGE! DISGUSTING!! We asked for water and wine - multiple times. The waitress took 20 minutes to bring either, saying she had to "wait for the wine" to bring both! JoAnne, the manager in charge, was "snarly" and COMPLETELY UNHELPFUL and shockingly discourteous. The restaurant was NOT busy. When we arrived and had to wait those 45 minutes, we went to the bar where there were 8 EMPTY SEATS. We will NEVER GO TO NOR RECOMMEND SIRENA TO ANYONE!

    I’ll preface by saying this is one of my wife’s favorite restaurants in the area, we’ve been going for years, and we travel about 40min. to eat there. Reservation was at 7:45 but the table wasn’t ready until 8:05. Not a big deal except that the hostess was preoccupied upon our arrival and completely non-engaging. They only hold a table for 15min on a reservation so they should hold themselves to the same standard. The waiter seemed uninterested and only came to the table once to take the order, asked the obligatory “is everything ok”, and then for the check when we indicated no dessert. The calamari was all fried crumbs of some vegetables and hardly any calamari; It was as if they emptied the fryer basket. My request for extra caper berries was initially ignored by the kitchen. Squid ink pasta was delicious and the pork chop was slightly over cooked. Steak was “really good” according to my wife. It just seemed like the staff was overall disengaged and the food quality has slipped a little. (Old Fashion at the bar was perfect). I’m tired of hearing people say “be thankful that the people who are working are even there.” If a business is open they should show more pride around service and product. We will go back but I’m in no hurry.

    We love to celebrate special occasions at Sierenas and this dinner reinforces why! We arrived at exactly our reserved time, we’re courteously greeted and quickly escorted to our table. Our server,Iana took over and began our delightful experience. The octopus was so sweet and tender it was not necessary to ever need a knife. When the Branzino was so highly recommended we both chose to order it. No disappointment, just delectable enjoyment. Not normally dessert lovers we thoroughly enjoyed sharing a flourless cake - to the last smudge!! Thank you for another perfect experience!

    The food at Sirena is consistantly great. We dined there on a Saturday evening and sat outside on the deck. The tables are in need of repair (ours had broken slats and although they changed our table when we brought it to their attention, they just sat someone else there) and the boardwalk needs to be hosed down. It had a lot of stains on it. Delicious food, we were not rushed at all and lovely beach view, but it needs some attention to the ambiance.

    We got the tiny little table on which nothing could fit and we’re told that if we would like a 4 people table we need to come Mon- Thur since they are really busy on the weekends ( Fri). That said there were at least 4-5 more couples through out the evening that received 4 people table. Continuously through out the evening at least 2 bigger tables were open. I guess this is the place were you pick and choose , please note we were dressed properly as we wanted this dinner to be special . They messed up our order , mash potato on my husband dish were done from powder which frankly should not happen.

    My husband and I had a wonderful experience. We had a 530pm reservation. We chose to eat outdoors and we had a lovely view of the beach and the ocean. Our food was delicious. We split the burrata appetizer which was very good. I had the pappardelle bolognese. It was amazing! My husband had the ink spaghetti with the rock shrimp. He loved it! For dessert we had tiramisu and banana bread pudding. Both delicious. The service was great. The food came out quickly and everything was cooked to perfection. We will definitely come back.

    It is very difficult to park now in summer. It would be helpful if you had a discount voucher for parking. One of the garages charges $40 and the majority charges $30. That only adds to our bill at Srena.

    We actually had a very disappointing experience The restaurant was so understaffed that our waitress had the entire section. The menu that was online was not the menu in the restaurant. The waitstaff was coming out to other tables apologizing and bringing desserts. Our Dinner was not enjoyable at all. Our waitress was no where to be found. We sat at our reservation time. Our appetizers were good. We waited over an hour for our entree. When I asked the waitress she seemed annoyed that I’d want my entree after an hour. I think it had been sitting in the kitchen. I finally told her if it didn’t come out in 5minutes we’d like the check. She had an attitude and then disappeared for 15 minutes. Our dinner was $190 Parking was $40 We had drinks for $50 at the bar when we waited to be seated. For $300 I’d have preferred they not take reservations they were unable to properly serve. This seemed to be the experience across the restaurant. I’d not return for any reason. It was the waste of a rare night off from work.
