About Siroc Restaurant
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 Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Ever single person in our group of ten raved about their meal. The server was also incredibly accommodating, providing excellent service and uncomplainingly splitting the check ten ways for our group of work colleagues. I definitely will plan future meals here and I recommend it highly.
Siroc is a gem. Every little aspect of it was just delightful. I've been to many Italian restaurants where they say they make their own pasta, but I doubt it! Siroc's pasta was fresh and delicate and clearly handmade. We went pre-theatre dinner, told them so, and our meal was ready in about 10 minutes including for one of us who ordered duck. The pastas were delicious. The presentations on the plates was lovely; especially the hazelnut mousse dessert! The service was as good as service in any of the finest restaurants I've ever been in. The atmosphere is a warm cozy setting - nice for a romantic dinner. I would go here again in a heartbeat. I'm actually trying to figure out an excuse to get back downtown so I can go. PS my sister-in-law is a banker downtown and she takes all her clients here for meals.
Siroc was a warm and welcoming spot for dinner on a blustery fall Sunday evening. The ravioli filled with short ribs and potatoes were pure Italian comfort food. The wine list has nice choices by the glass. My server was helpful in guiding me how to sample a variety of flavors without overstuffing myself.
Food, ambience, service - Siroc has it all. We'd been there some time ago and, while we loved the food then as well, the noise was intolerable. They've fixed that with what appear to be sound-deadening tiles on the ceiling. It makes all the difference. We could hear each other and the server and the atmosphere was laid back & lovely. The food is creative and excellent - squid ink pasta, ravioli stuffed with short ribs, wonderful fish. Each dish was well prepared and well presented.
We'll definitely be back!
Tasty food in an elegant, yet relaxed atmosphere. I met a friend for lunch and we were both pleased with our very tasty dishes and the helpful, friendly service. I had the delicious squid ink pasta with lobster, shrimp, and calamari, while my friend had the tenderloin steak, which I tasted, too. It was equally appealing. It was easy to have a nice conversation, excellent food and friendly service.
Unexpected after-Theatre Delight
Three of us walked up to Siroc after a matinee at the National Theatre. The food was varied - each of us ordered a different entree and shared two different salads -- and we enjoyed them immensely. The black (pepper) spaghetti carbonara was new for me - -the addition of black pepper to the pasta was subtle, yet just enough edge to liven up a traditional carbonara pairing. Try it -- you'll like it!
Food was excellent and service was very good. Only negative was there were two very large parties the evening I went. That made it loud and detracted from the service some. It is a fairly small restaurant. Would be better to limit large parties to only one at the same time. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend it and definitely would go back.
What a delight to dine in such a cozy setting! The charming and professional Paulina anticipated every wish. We chose the evening's special, pasta with a vodka sauce and shrimp, preceded by bread made in Heaven. Generous servings of both -- my husband was thrilled with my take-home. We started early and it was blissfully quiet -- by the end of the meal, several large groups increased the noise level
What a nice experience. Our server Marina knows her way around the menu and wine list. Three words... split... pasta... order. It gives you more tasting options and you’ll want to try everything on the menu. Portions are more than enough, but save room for dessert! This was our second visit and there are more on the horizon.
One of my favorite moderately priced places in downtown WDC, though prices there are creeping up. Food is reliably good, service is attentive without being intrusive, and dishes arrive in a timely manner. Excellent salads and pastas, and tasty entrees. Better desserts than most Italian-themed restaurants.
