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.

Appetizers (eggplant, cheese board, anti pasta) and drinks (cocktails and wine) were great. Pastas generally looked good and my colleagues were happy. I ordered the ossobuco and it was overcooked. Disappointing. I might go back and just have pasta, but the I will likely pass and go somewhere else.

This is my favorite place in DC. I'm reluctant to toot the horn about it too much because I'm selfish and want it to always be the great place that I remember. I have a tremendous story about this restaurant but I'll leave it at the fact that after 4 years away, I returned and found that it was still the fantastically hospitable eater that I remembered. I also want to shout out to Iva, from Bulgaria, who is extraordinary both as a server and a warm, hospitable human being. Take it for gospel, eat at Siroc. All things are great and it that is especially true fro Iva.

One of our fave DC restaurants. In our 3 trips to town in 2019, this is the only place we have been to more than once. It is not because we didn’t like the others, we just like trying different places. But Siroc is that good.

We had a rather large party of both adults and children. The staff was very helpful in making adjustments to our reservation and accommodating our needs. The restaurant was quiet enough that we could talk with each other comfortably and the food was delicious. I plan to return and have already recommended it to others.

Whenever I'm in Washington, D.C., I always try to dine at Siroc. The service is excellent, the food is superb, and the menu changes just enough between my visits to make it interesting. Their wine list is goo, too, and has a selection of moderately-priced bottles as well as top-of-the-line ones.

Incredibly loud. Somewhere it was described as a "romantic" place to dine. Only if you were willing to shout across the table. I called in advance to make a reservation. One of our threesome had hearing impairment, and they assured me that they had a quiet spot, but not so.

The food was in the "ok" category. To the chef's credit, they did not try to get overly creative. The fish was cooked well; the fingerling potatoes were hard and bland.

Love this restaurant . Always accommodating and service is super. It’s quite noisy the earlier you go so if you want to talk go around 1-1:30

Another great visit with good friends, who have now become customers of Siroc. All the fisheaters raved about the new fish that was on the menu, and our pastas were as good as ever. Though I would have objected had I known that someone at our table ordered two of the chocolate desserts, I forced myself to join with the others in finishing them off quickly. Delicious!

And great service, as always.

Consistently delicious food, wine list that is varied and well priced. It’s our go to place when friends come from out of town. Martin, the chef owner, goes out of his way to make a visit their special. A hidden gem.

If you like pasta this is the place for you in DC. Everyone in our party raved about the pasta. I've been here several times and picked it because it has menu items other than pasta for those who aren't into Italian specifically. The food is amazing.

Five colleagues went to Siroc for a good-bye lunch. We all ordered pasta dishes and no alcohol, so the price was reasonable. Bruschetta to start was quite tasty. The setting was great for lunch. The food was good and portions satisfying, with a couple of people taking home leftovers. Service was fine. Would certainly recommend for a similar occasion.

Our group of six was seated at a nice table. We had to be proactive and ask for everything: water; bread, oil and salt. The dinners were delicious, but the staff - well meaning, I am sure - were clearly disorganized and not sufficiently professional or attentive.

Food was excellent. Service was excellent and we had a table of 8. Very charming atmosphere. Its DC so food prices will never be reasonable but with no drinks the bill averaged out to $30 ahead for lunch. It was very nice but I am sure many would appreciate a little more variety in price range for a weekday lunch. Thank you.

A charming, rather cozy Italian restaurant was a good spot for a combine business and pleasure dinner with a colleague. The menu is compact but has a nice selection of pasta, fish and meat dishes. The squid ink tagliatelle was especially good as was our other dish, veal shank. We had the veal sausages as an appetizer which was also nicely prepared. Service was prompt and attentive and the wine list reasonably priced, if some what limited. The noise level was good for conversation. Overall a good value which could do well for business or an intimate dinner.

we were there for lunch, and there were a wide variety of menu items in terms of ingredients, portion sizes and price. two of us had pasta dishes which were were nicely composed and a good sized lunch portion - mine was so good that i had to resist licking the serving dish, and the other was enjoyed by one friend. the other friend had a salad and loved it. we all shared a tiramisu, one of the best i've ever eaten, including in italy. located close to two different metro stations.
