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.

This is an underappreciated restaurant on McPherson Square, one of my favorites in the city. the (somewhat Italian) food is consistently wonderful, the service is high quality from wait staff who seem to stay forever and the atmosphere is pleasant. It can be noisy when full, but if you ask they will take pains to find a quiet table for you, inside or out. In our most recent visit I had an unusual and superb lamb and eggplant tower dish. Their pastas and seafood always are high quality and come in very generous portions.

I was traveling to D.C. for business and it happened to be my birthday. I had been to Siroc once before with friends and enjoyed it. The food was delicious. I had pappardelle with shrimp which is one of my favorite dishes. The service couldn't have been better. They brought me a wonderful blueberry cake with a candle and a glass of limoncello. They made me feel at home so I wasn't alone on my birthday!

The food was very good as was the service. The room is excellent for dinner, dark enough to be more intimate but not too dark. The table placement is also quite good -- you do not fell like other diners are on top of you. And, it is not the typical Washington noisy restaurant where you can hardly hear yourself think. Highly recommended

Although I didn't sit outside, there is a nice outdoor cafe on main street. Delicious BLT Caesar SALAD appetizer and Bolognase and sword fish for dinner. Very nice atmosphere and wonderful server. I found Siroc on Open TAble and highly recommend.

We were a party of 6 composed of three moms (two were Japanese friends visiting from Tokyo) and our sons, three high school boys. Two of our boys were dressed a bit casually for the restaurant, but we weren't made to feel uncomfortable and had a nice table in the center of things. We arrived for our 6:45 reservation, and were seated immediately. We started off the meal with an excellent cheese platter with fresh-baked bread. For entrees, two had beef tenderloin, two had fish, and two had pasta. All were happy with their choices. I had the sea bass with fennel which was excellent. The service was quick and to the point. The atmosphere was somewhat formal and guests appeared to be a mix of business gatherings and family and friends out for an evening. The price and quality seemed to be in sync (the friends from Tokyo thought it a good value). A pleasant evening out with friends!

Some of the best service in D.C.-- wait staff is highly professional, warm, knowledgable. Food is excellent-- enough variety on the menu to please many tastes, but not so much that it feels overwhelming or disconnected. lively atmosphere, but you can hear each other.

my first time at Siroc, but will be back . I am always looking for restaurants without tables on top of each other and too much noise to have a business discussion.

The Black sea bass was fabulous --- we both had it so can't comment on other items. good wine list.

Didn't find the spinach fettuccini with eggplant to have much eggplant. Mostly pasta with sauce. Very minuscule amount of mozzarella. Offer ground pepper but no grated cheese. Waitress absent most of visit. Used to be better but slipping a good bit.

Went for my son's birthday and chose the perfect place. Our waitress ( wish I had asked her name) was excellent from beginning to end - overall one of the best service in a restaurant. One of the rare places where they do not clear the plates until everyone is done. The food was absolutely delicious - from the amuse bouche to the birthday almond cake dessert they brought out for.my son. Definitely worth many trips back.

Have been to Siroc many times and each is special. Wine list good and pasta great. Service is really nice and always consistent. Outdoor dining at this time of year is really nice too.
Any pasta is delicious and perfect size meal. Wish I could say I've tried dessert but no sorry.

Siroc is the most underrated restaurant in the city. Food is always great as is the service. I nearly always choose between the pasta and fish specials of the day and have never been disappointed. This is a place that makes you feel like you are home. Chef Martin frequently visits the dining room. The place is always busy but you never are hurried. Prices are more than reasonable. Love it.

Enjoyed a quiet early weekend dinner. The patio looked inviting as the sun faded. Bay scallop pappardelle dish was fabulous as was the steak. Wine suggestion paired well. Both chocolate desserts were special The service was attentive I would definitely return for a quiet dinner or a special occasion as well

I have eaten here many times and the food is always terrific. This time, one of the special entrees (short rib ravioli) was overly salty and and lacked depth. Everything else was wonderful. This time our waitress was a bit off. She spent a lot of time chatting with diners at another table and failed to bring us courses on time.

Stopped in for an early dinner before a show at Lincoln Center. It was also our anniversary. The room is nicely decorated, the guests a mix of business groups and tourists, some informally dressed. The servers were very competent. Great salads, and the special of the day, home made pasta with duck and a smokey cream sauce, was delicious. The courses came with leisurely timing and we did not leave enough time for dessert, but they surprised us with an celebratory almond cake topped with blueberries and a candle. Nice touch.

Our meal at Siroc was very good. The restaurant has several appealing Italian/Mediterranean meals to choose from. My dining companions and I were most interested in the many unusual pasta creations offered. The restaurant allows half-orders of many of the dishes, so we picked two that intrigued us and ordered half-orders of each to make up an entree dish. We enjoyed each dish ordered. Our waitress seemed a little peeved when we did not order at the first opportunity, but did not slight us in any way. Service was good and the meal was satisfying.

Two friends and my husband and I went to Siroc for a midweek dinner. My husband had eaten at Siroc before and recommended it. The restaurant is very attractive although the noise level is fairly high. Our waitress came promptly for drinks orders and to tell us the specials and then to take our orders. However, after that the service was quite spotty - it appeared that there were not enough wait staff (the restaurant became quite busy). In addition, removal of plates and cutlery was obtrusive and not smooth. We were offered a spinach amuse gueule, which was very tasty. Hors d'oeuvres were quite good. However, although the taste combinations were creative, the pastas were overcooked. Overall, I wanted to like Siroc more than I actually did.
