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.

Outstanding choices are available. We dined al fresco which was a very pleasant experience. The saffron tagliatelle with lamb sausage and branzino entrees were outstanding. The burrata with prosciutto was excellent. We shared th3 almond cake with blueberries, a wonderful end to the meal. We shared a premier cru Chablis. We will definitely return on our next trip to DC

Siroc is like an old friend who is consistent and never disappoints. It is my favorite go to place for special meals and guests. Delicious home made pasta dishes represent half its well-curated menu. Give the squid ink pasta with seafood and tomatoes a try. Service is gracious and snappy. Quiet, relaxed dining room setting or people watch al fresco.

I don’t want to actually write a good review because I want to keep Siroc as a little hidden gem of my own but they deserve the props. I took a group of federal judges to Siroc for dinner and just had a great experience. The server who was also probably the manager was perfect. I will be back and will especially use Siroc for a large group if needed again.

Food was overall ok though the pappardelle was over cooked & little mushy. Service was efficient but server was quite impersonal & impatient. Noise level very loud that we could not carry on a normal conversation without raising our voice.

Been to Siroc several times now, and the food there is always great. Nice, but not overwhelming selection of dishes. Ambiance is very nice for a relaxing dinner, and the service was attentive, but nit overbearing.

Siroc is by far my favorite DC restaurant. The food never disappoints, in fact, it often excels. The servers are delightful and efficient. The managers have an eye for detail and have created ambiance that feels a little New York and a little Rome. I go about once a week for lunch, knowing I will be able to enjoy great food and conversation -- all at a reasonable price. You can't go wrong with Siroc.

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.
