Chef Martin Lackovic, formerly of Galileo, I Matti, and The Caucus Room opened Siroc Restaurant on McPherson Square with brothers Keram and Mehdi Dris who run the front of the house. Siroc's seasonal menu features cooking inspired by Italy and the Mediterranean with housemade pastas, charcuterie, salads, and entrées. The new restaurant takes its name from a wind that blows from northern Africa to Italy and the Mediterranean.

Siroc is terrific, except... The food is creative and delicious (very very creative and very very delicious) and the service good (although we did have to send someone for our waiter, but then he got back on track). The price was very reasonable. The "except" is the noise level. We got the little alcove in the back - about 60% shielded by the walls - but it was still almost impossible for the 4 of us to talk across the table. I heard every word of from the man sitting directly behind my left ear, and I'm sure someone else heard parts of ours because raising our voices was the only option, but talking to each other that way was truly uncomfortable - not to mention public.

The staff was very accommodating to our small group and made us feel welcome. The option of half-portion entrees gives the option to taste other flavors from the appetizers and desserts. Yum, spiced pear and ice cream - a seasonal treat!

Excellent service and very good food. Decent wine list overall, and nice ambience. Two minor quibbles kept it from being Outstanding overall. First, the food was too salty. I've noticed this increasingly in restaurants these days: chefs are adding salt to enhance the flavor. But the best chefs don't have to do that, and later on one is feeling parched and having to drink a lot of water. This is not a fast food or a bar food milieu: one shouldn't have that experience in a restaurant of this caliber. Second, the wine list should be updated, or the staff should be trained to tell the customer that the wine being brought to the table is a later vintage from the one presented on the wine list, explain to the customer that they have run out of the listed vintage, and also bring the wine list along in case the customer would like to make another selection.. The customer shouldn't have to figure all this out on his own. One doesn't need a trained sommelier: It's just common sense and good customer relations to do this.

We had a lovely time at Siroc. We ordered several dishes and shared them. The stuffed squid was very good. Squid ink pasta was delicious. Their pasta special of seafood in pesto sauce with sun dried tomatoes was very good. And the grilled branzino was perfect. The service was great, and the restaurant is beautiful.

I made an 11:30 am lunch reservation and we were the first ones in the restaurant. Once more tables were seated, it appeared there was only one server and one helper for the whole place. I felt the service could have been better and there should have been at least two servers. The food was good and I would definitely return.

We had an “amuse bouche” sent out by the chef to enjoy with our cocktail as we waited for our order. Unfortunately it was a cold overly buttered ravioli- probably delicious if warm. The next course was lukewarm & mediocre- so I asked our waitress to please make sure my pasta was hot- which she did- and it was absolutely delicious!!!! I’ve eaten here before and it’s usually delicious & reliable. The waiters are lovely though the hostess seemed bored by her job.

I have recently had the opportunity to host two important business meetings at Siroc, one with foreign visitors. In each instance the food has been superb, the service extremely good, and the setting perfect for important discussions. Would recommend the restaurant highly for business lunches as well as their outstanding dinner menu. John Cruden

We loved this restaurant and wish we had been sometime before! Excellent food, beautiful dining room and wonderful thoughtful service. This was part 2 of my birthday celebration -- first Italian restaurant we tried earlier in the week had disappointed us and this was 200% better!! Under-the-radar gem with great fresh pasta, excellent seafood and the best kind of staff: leaving us alone when we wanted and available at just the right moment when needed.

I have been going to Siroc monthly for the past decade and the quality, freshness and flavor of their entire menu is incredible. Every meal I have had there is excellent and the prices are very good as well. The pasta is very nicely prepared and you can order two different options and get 1/2 size order of each which is great because you can get a favorite dish, mine is the gnocchi, and can try something else. Siroc is one of the best restaurants in DC. I look forward to returning many times.

My only hesitation about recommending this restaurant is that it will get too crowded. Excellent food, service, location, and quiet enough to hear your dining companions. Hard to beat that.

We enjoyed our lunch. The only thing I will note is that there were a lot of people having business lunches there, and yet, the pace of service was a bit slow - I think most people leave an hour for a work lunch, and it definitely took 3 people 90 minutes to get in and out. Not a big deal - we enjoyed the ambiance, food, and friendliness, but it did take a little longer than we thought. I would especially recommend the spicy lamb and red pepper gnocchi. I was fabulous.
