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.

First time dinning at this restaurant after a few years living out of the area, and the food was just as good as we remembered. The new brussel sprout & artichoke appetizer was amazing. The flourless almond cake with blueberry compote is still one of my favorite desserts.

Absolutely incredible all around. Quiet atmosphere, outstanding service, Roman style cuisine. Will be back again and again for some of the best Italian I’ve had in DC. Squid ink pasta with lobster calamari and shrimp was delicate and very fresh.

We had a perfect Valentines Day dinner. The food, wine pairings, and service were exemplary. We noticed that the room seems to have noise-deadening features. The soft noise level and low lighting made for a wonderfully romantic meal. All in all, a very special place that we'll return to.

This is a beautiful, small, romantic restaurant with absolutely delicious food. It’s a bit pricey but If you’re okay with spending a bit of money, this will be worth it. Each dish was beautifully thought out from flavors to textures and even the presentation.

Food and service were good, only complaint is that the small green salads we requested with our were a bit expensive - $10 for some lettuce and cucumber.

It’s unbelievable how good this place is. The salmon appetizer is enormous , fresh and perfectly prepared.

Their special scallops and spaghetti was phenomenal.

Of course it’s their excellent host, chef and staff that always makes the difference.

Cozy place for a meal, good service, warm ambiance. A few dishes excessively salted, but the lamb ravioli and branzino were outstanding!

The chef sent over a free amuse bouche, which was a lovely touch. But the crowning point was the deliciousness of their pasta special that day - a sea scallops and pasta dish with saffron cream sauce. Amazing. I wish they'd put it permanently on their menu so I could go back weekly.

Siroc has delicious and unique options. The food is very high quality, priced appropriately, and the atmosphere is relaxed and very pleasant. Easy for conversation. We had a very large party next to us and even though they were quite animated, we really could hardly tell they were there. The wine list is expertly chosen with affordable options. I can see why Siroc has a loyal following.

The food was amazing. Our server, Marina was very good. But what made this dinner so special was what I saw the staff doing. They made sure every glass sparkled. The menus were wiped cle6. This restaurant is a throw back to what a great restaurant is supposed to be.

I generally go with a friend who unfailingly orders one of the two daily specials. A pasta or seafood special. He has never been disappointed. I love the place as well. It just well might be the best kept restaurant secret in D.C.

We had a lovely "restaurant week" dinner with friends from New York City. From the very start, Siroc was a winner! The hostess and the waiter were wonderful, knowledgeable, and friendly. The dinner included 4 courses, all of which were superb. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Siroc.

A lovely evening together with friends. Actually it was restaurant week and a great value. I have eaten there for years and always very pleasant. Great for special occasions, or just alone. Convenient to the metro and plenty of parking in nearby garages if you can't find a spot on the street. Wine list good but a little limited, overall great dining experience.

Good service for NYE...food wasn’t what we expected. Average at best. I wasn’t sure if they were going for northern Italian or Olive Garden.
