Went for the Valentine's Day prix fixe menu. Overall, not a satisfying experience. The food was only "ok", not what I would expect for this $$$ of a restaurant. The food wasn't distinctive, and lacked any "wow" factor. Unfortunately, I was really unsatisfied with what was an important night.

Siroc's downtown location makes it convenient for my wife and me to meet for lunch but we took this week's Valentine's Day for an outstanding dinner. The atmosphere in the evening is even more cozy and pleasant than at lunch and the evening sound level was just as conversation-supporting as it is at lunch. The service is equally professional and friendly. Each plate was creatively and beautifully presented, wonderfully flesh and flavorful, and healthy. The wine pairing was excellent. Overall, this was an outstanding and good value experience. We will definitely return for dinner again, soon.

I hadn't heard of this place but a friend recommended it and it had excellent reviews online. The food was spectacular (especially the beef tenderloin) and perfectly cooked. The service was very hospitable but not overbearing - in fact, our server was quite friendly. We even saw an engagement! I highly recommend this place.

A lovely restaurant -- nice and quiet, yet suitable for romantic date or for dinner with friends. The menu was the perfect size and selection of different dishes. The service staff was also well-mannered, checking in without hovering.

While I have not been in about a year ( been out of town ) ....I was happy to return to Siroc. Table for 2 for lunch on a Friday was roomy and the restaurant is quiet enough that you can actually have a normal conversation. Burrata with roasted tomatoes for a starter was nice size and tasty. Special fish was black bass with asparagus.......perfectly cooked with a somewhat smoky flavor. Dinners are just as good with daily specials which do not disappoint. Martin, the chef/owner came out and we chatted for quite a while..........and took his suggestions on the bass. He buys/cooks with whatever may be local and fresh.

We went to Siroc for our anniversary dinner. We had a nice quiet table in a corner, as requested. All the food was very well prepared, and the service was very good. The tab was very reasonable considering the quality of what we ate and drank.

Restaurante de comida italiana, buenos vinos y espectacular pasta, pedimos con mi esposa una botella de vino, pasta penne con salsa blanca acompañado de tiras de procciuto y queso rayado realmente exquisita. La otra pasta era un tortelinni de pasta negra con salsa roja y mariscos, el camarón tenía buena consistencia pero un sabor extraño, no tomaría de nuevo la pasta con mariscos pero si la otra. Un Buena experiencia y la atención muy buena también. Recomendable

I chose the restaurant because it was on my IHG plan and was a convenient location for my guest. The food was excellent and it was fun to be in a place that was very full, thank goodness I made a reservation because we could not have gotten a lunch table without it. My lunch special was expensive ($22.95) for pasta with shrimp and fresh peas but it was very good. Still, at these prices, special occasion only. I thought they would have had lunch specials on menu.

We were just in town for a long weekend and found Siroc on OpenTable. The restaurant was quiet (yet reasonably busy) and had a lovely atmosphere. The food was delicious. And- they let my boyfriend have two half portions of pasta when he was having trouble deciding on one... and they were both great! My pasta was amazing as well. The staff was friendly and helpful. I couldn't recommend this place enough! We will definitely go back!

 (Atlanta)·Dined on January 4, 2018

I was visiting DC and went here 2 nights in a row. They had excellent by the glass wine options, including Sancerre. For entrees I had the spinach and burrata ravioli with artichokes one night and the chickpea pappardelle pasta with scallops, pesto, green beans and potatoes. Both were excellent, though the ravioli was less heavy. For appetizers, I had a seared scallops and spinach special one night and the eggplant involtini the other. The scallops were melt in your mouth tender and the spinach just slid down. The eggplant was good but not as memorable as the other dishes. For desert, I had the poached pear (in red wine) with marscapone ice cream one night and the hazelnut wrapped chocolate mouse with raspberries. The latter was very good but heavy after a full meal and better suited to splitting with someone. The poached pear was lighter and delicious. Service was excellent and prices were reasonable for quality. Loop tape was on the techno side but not too loud.

The food was mediocre at best. I had the special that night
parpadelle with lamb ragu which was pretty
bland, another had the brozino which was
just ok, parrpadelle with seafood in a red sauce was just ok, I think the side of sautéed Spinach was frozen spinach. The best thing
was the trio of galatto for desert!!

The chef and his top assistants must have
been off for the holidays. Not a good experience.
