Food was excellent as always. Had the salami and formaggio plates along as an app and then the veal saltimbocca for dinner. Big portions of each and the veal was cooked very well. The waiter was very accommodating even when my wife had to leave to feed our son (2 months) since he wouldn’t settle down at the table. We were able to delay the entree from coming out so we could still enjoy a nice hot meal. Will continue to come back once the weather gets a little warmer.

Been coming to this restaurant for years for special occasions. Never had a bad meal or experience. Until my anniversary dinner this past Saturday. Starting w my confirmed reservation for a booth in main dining room that we typically reserve for special occasions, confusion amongst what appeared to be new staff managing the host area, informed me after a near 20 min wait WITH a reservation that she may not be able to accommodate the requested booth seating and we’d have to wait longer for such. After finally being seated, we were served cold bread w stale butter. Then my staple favorites that we ordered, that my family and I enjoyed over the YEARS, like fritto Misto and the best Caesar salad I’ve ever known - now a total disappointment. The calamari was totally different-appeared to be large frozen type rings, tough and v fishy. We didn’t even eat half. Waiter later removed noticing it was barely eaten and didn’t even ask how it was or if a problem. Then Caesar came, I asked for it to be split on two plates (which We were later charged for without being told and was NEVER charged for previously). Salad had near no dressing and def not the same dressing it used to. The pastas were still excellent (smaller portions noted for sure), their signature bolognese dish was still the same quality minus smaller portion and my significant other had a gnocchi crabmeat special that contained only 24 small gnocchi with three tiny pieces of lump crabmeat. Waiter rarely came back to see how things were. Terribly difficult to get waiters or anyones attention. Hostess/mgr was very rude from the beginning. Really turned us off & ruined the evening. No special message or anything on the plate that typically would be noted for a special occasion, whether verbally or expressed written on dish. I raved about this place to my sig other who had never been, to come to find the place is nothing like it was. For those who have known our great sirena, it’s gone. I will NEVER return.

This is a rarity in Jersey, fine dining on the water with a great view. I have never had better Italian food anywhere in my life including several trips to Italy. My partner was not quite so fortunate. Her food was so salty that it was barely edible, you could tell that it would’ve been delicious without all the salt but it was way over the line. My dish featured black spaghetti clams mussels scallops and shrimp, it was far better than any cioppino that I’ve ever had but it wasn’t exactly cioppino. Her dish consisted of mussels and assorted vegetables, both dishes were well presented and the service was excellent. She had special olives for an appetizer and absolutely loved them. Coffee was hot strong and wonderful, a few restaurants serve coffee this good.

Delicioso! Great food, wonderful service and top beach views of Long Branch shoreline. This meal was the highlight of our weekend which for me featured a fabulously done Branzino with moist, succulent and crispy bites. You have to try it to believe this is possible with a fish.

I always loved Sirena, however this visit was totally unacceptable. Service was non existent. Our main entrée came after an hour of our apps. Our glasses stayed emptied and our finished app dishes sat on the table until we finally asked to have them cleared. We wound up taking our entrees to go.

Had a great time, the food, the beautiful view of the ocean. Our waiter was excellent even accommodated us when we wanted to have dessert outside. However, $65 for a bottle of wine that you can get for $22 in the liquor store is a little much.

Fantastic date night dinner out with my wife. We dined outside on the deck overlooking the ocean just as the harvest moon began to rise - couldn't ask for a better ambiance.

The menu featured several new seasonal items and we jumped right on them, starting with a goat cheese and squash pizza that was absolutely delicious. My wife went with the papardelle bolognese and I had the short rib with parmesan polenta.

We capped the night with a delectable cappuccino gelato. Everything was outstanding!

The only issue we had was upon arrival. It was brisk outside and we requested indoor dining when we made the reservation. When we got there they first tried to sit us outside, which we politely declined. The hostess was a nasty girl. Dark, curly hair. Then she tried to sit us in a bar booth. We again declined. I told her there was a 4 tip open right there and pointed to a perfect spot. She stated that was already reserved for a 6:15 reservation and I said we have a 6:15 reservation. She said it was for someone else. Huh?!?! Again, her attitude was nasty. I finally told her we wanted to sit in the dining room where she eventually sat us. Rude rude rude.

Our server Slov (sp) was great. The food was amazing. Thank you Sirena!!!

What a disappointment! After being listed on the Restaurant Week participant list, they did not honor a posted menu (said that was last year). Absolutely NO accommodation was offered for their error - I would have definitely gone to Drifthouse! Their service was lagging even with not many tables booked. Food was mediocre yet expensive. I will not be back!

Sad we had a bad experience. I think we went on a very unfortunate day. We made a reservation and our table wasn’t ready on time. We had to wait around 15-20 minutes to be seated, the waiting hall was full of people. Another 20 minutes just to get a tap water. As soon as the waitress came we already ordered our food since we were not really wanting to wait another 20 minutes just to order the food. Food came early than expected but the meat was raw. I asked the steak to be medium and my boyfriend medium well. The picture below shows how the meat was brought to us.

Waited 45 minutes with reservation hostess was not very friendly when asked about my table some of the dishes we ordered were not what we expected and when we told the waiter his whole demeanor changed for the rest of the evening it’s a very pretty restaurant and we had a nice time but not sure I would go back

Talk about short staffed!!!! Absolutely horrible! Felt bad for the waiter since he had too many tables to keep up with but it totally ruined our dinner. Food was very good and we are super patient but it was ridiculous! No help from a manger.. no where to be seen. Our first time there but will never return and it’s a shame because it’s a nice place with good food. Just wouldn’t take a chance again

There was an hour wait with reservations for indoor dining. The food is excellent. The server was very good but he was the only server for the indoor dining room which delayed tables from placing orders. I love this restaurant. They need to bring back more servers.

The hostess Jaiden was not prepared to handle the reservations that had been made. She was explosively overwhelmed and unprofessional.

We were open tabkes and there were tables surrounding us that were left uncleared around us.

And it took 30
Min for us to get our drinks after we ordered food. It came with dessert.

Terrible experience. Show up and told that my reservation for 4 was for "outside" seating. (We didn't reserve for outside seating). We were told that if we didn't sit outside they couldn't guarantee our reservation. Sat outside facing beach. No heaters. It was 50 degrees (dropped to 47) and windy. We told the waiter, the front greeter and finally the manager. Totally unhelpful. Manager actually said that he didn't know if he could help us and honestly didn't seem to care. FINALLY a young server somehow finds us a table inside (we had been outside for one hour, everyone shivering). Then...no napkins, no serving utensils, we had to ask for everything. When the food came out it was for the most part not even warm and VERY overpriced. Will never go there again.
