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.

Food was unbelievable! Spot on! We had creamy pastas and they were very good. Not you’re usual pasta dishes which is what made them so satisfying!

Food was overall ok, but expensive. Lemon tagliatelle was too greasy and special pasta was like a chinese noodle.

We had a lovely meal at Siroc, which satiated my need for a delicious, traditional carbonara. My boyfriend had an amazing squid ink seafood dish which he loved too. Would visit again.

Was in DC for business. Siroc was close to our hotel and got good ratings, we decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. They have a small but solid wine list with reasonable prices and we had a great barbaresco that our server recommended. All of our dishes were great - we had the brancino, bolognese fettuccini, ravioli and sea bass. Our server was appropriately attentive. Overall a great experience.

Excellent food. Perhaps a bit understaffed and servers unsmiling because of overwork? Noise level better than in many places—conversation was easy. One of us RAVED about the eggplant and lamb dish.

This was our second time at Siroc and both were wonderful evenings. I'm surprised I don't hear more about this place--I guess the hot new restaurants dominate but what a gem! My husband and I had fish and our friends had pasta; everything was delicious, well balanced, just the right portions. Service was almost too attentive with plates whisked away a bit early, but helpful frequent water refills and offers for more drinks. We even found meter parking right around the corner. I find pricing more reasonable than most DC restaurants of this level--pastas ~$18-22 and meat/fish $20-28. They're great with special events too, really made birthday people feel special. Highly recommend!

We came for a 6:30PM dinner Friday evening, on time, and seating was quick and efficient for the 3 of us despite one of us using a wheel chair. Few patrons at that point. I had salmon which was a tad dry, in addition to a meat ravioli which was good but not great. Plates were beautifully presented. One of us had a Malbec wine which was good. For dessert, we had ice cream and fruit, while one had a poached pear. Pear dish for one of us ok.. Bill came to just shy of $200... which for what we got felt high. Our waitress was very attentive. By our departure, the room was packed with patrons, and the noise was at least moderate.. but still ok.. I would not go back for this, since we do not live close by and it did not ring out as exemplary .. For context, the pouring rain that night did not help matters.

Great Italian food. They need to get their HVAC (cooling unit) replaced because when it turns on it sounds like a 747 airplane is trying to land on your table.
