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.

Excellent pasta and fish dishes. The warm Kalamata bread in the bread basket is fantastic. Attentive and warm service.

Excellent food - well presented and well prepared. Our waitress was a bit distracted and distant at the outset but warmed up eventually and she turned out fine. Wine by the glass was hardly of high quality and it was disappointing that red wine by the glass was not served in the usual red wine goblets but in a rather indifferent, all-purpose glass -- all of which in indicated to me that the restaurant doesn't want customers to order wine by the glass. That's a shame because my wife often doesn't want wine and a full bottle is too much for me to drink by myself. I judge a restaurant's overall quality partly o such things as wine by the glass. But, back to my first point, the food was excellent and we will return.

This was our second time eating at Siroc. First time was during the Blizzard of the Century in DC. Walked there from our hotel and fell in love with this place. Have read recently that the President took Michelle there on a date night.
We took our kids and another couple and everyone loved what they ordered. Service was perfect. I expect to dine at Siroc each time I find myself in the DC area.

The dinner and service was wonderful. However, the noise level of room was so loud we had to speak very loudly to be heard at our table. It doesn't appear that there are any wall or floor surfaces which absorb sound, so it is quite unpleasant when the restaurant is full.

This was our second time at Siroc's. We tried new dishes and enjoyed the food, wine and service just as much as the first time. It's been a terrific find for us. A place we can take out-of-town friends and know there will be consistency in the cuisine.

We'd read good review of SIROC but had never tried it. Last weekend we had friends in from New York and were able to get reservations at a decent time at Siroc when everything else was booked until after 10 p.m. We were delighted and surprised. It's a small restaurant that feels very European however, the tables are well spaced so you're not listening to someone else's conversation. The food was excellent, the wine selection terrific and the ambience relaxed yet elegant. It's our new favorite restaurant! Bravo Siroc!!

Packed and buzzing on a Friday night. Inventive seasonal salads and appetizers. Good bread basket with warm selection of breads and focacia. The rabbit sausage appetizer was outstanding. Variety of good pasta dishes that can be ordered in smaller sizes if you want as an appetizer or side dish. My main dish of lamb ragout and eggplant was flavorful. Desserts are good but not particularly inventive. Service is prompt and attentive.

Lunch was as good as ever, and my guest -- a first visit to Siroc -- was so taken by the food that he ordered an appetizer after finishing his entree! Service was superb -- continues its high level of excellence in all aspects of the experience.

I am a jaded wine writer who is burned out on the DC Dining scene, so I was thrilled to fine this gem-of-a-restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere were all outstanding. There were so many wonderful dishes on the menu that my party of four decided to order different things and just share. And the best news is that they are willing to serve half portions of every pasta dish - although you won't want to share! I had the osso buco and it was perfect. We brought a bottle of wine and were thrilled with their corkage policy as well as with their wine list. A great evening - I am going back next week!

Siroc is always a bright spot for lunch in DC. The menu is fresh with seasonal dishes that are flavorful and prepared quickly,which is always nice for business lunches. There is a little somethongs for all tastes. Nice small plates, entree salads and maim entered as well. The atmosphere is inviting and condusive for conversation.

Had a great experience and will definitely recommend this to friends. There were 6 of us and all our dishes were fantastic. I highly recommend the pan seared shrimp and the sea scallops with artichokes. The black pepper tagliatelle with sweet garlic and scallops were heavenly!!!! The house made sausages, the squid ink pasta, the gnocchi, branzino were absolutely delicious. Aside from the food, the service was wonderful.

Always loved, loved Siroc, except that is is always noisy. OK, TBE. Lousy experience Saturday night with an over-the-top table next to us. Management ignored them and left the rest of us to suffer. It should have asked them to control themselves. We couldn't do it and shouldn't have had to. Poor service rating is for Mgmt - owner was in the room - NOT server, who was cheerful, excellent and efficient; she got a good tip. Don't think we can go back. Too bad, food was great.

This time, my experience at Siroc wasn't very good - unlike during previous visits. The waiters made a lot of mistakes (my scallops starter ended up with somebody else, who had not order any starter, and I had to wait for new ones to be prepared for me), and the pasta with shrimps came with a lot of bacon not listed in the menu - which for somebody who doesn't eat meat is not a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately, by now almost every sea food dish comes with some form of bacon - which leaves very little on the menu I want to eat. Maybe I won't return ...

My boss was visiting DC from San Francisco, and I wanted to bring her to a comfortable restaurant that had great ambience and great food, so I took her to Siroc. It was a beautiful night, so we sat outside to enjoy the nice weather. My boss, coming from San Francisco and being a world traveler, has experienced many memorable dining experiences, and she really had a great time at Siroc. She enjoyed discussing the wine list with the manager, and loved the food. The service was terrific as usual. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

One of the reasons this restaurant was chosen was becaause I needed a place with good food and a place where I could conduct business. It did not disappoint on either front. The wrong salad was brought to me. While it was delicious, it was not what I ordered. The correct salad was brought to me and it was quite good.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant and go again.

This was our third visit to Siroc (2 dinners, one lunch). The menu is well balanced and offers a very good selection, with interesting "specials". All four of us had different entrees and all were excellent. Fresh, well prepared, and flavorful ingredients all attractively presented.The starters and deserts were also delicious. As on previous occasions, we found the service attentive and cordial. The one disappointment on this occasion was the noise level. We had asked for a "quiet" table and were seated at what normally would have been a quiet one. However,a large group table was placed in the middle of the restaurant and, aside from the normal noise level one would expect from such a group, a couple of the members were obnoxiously loud.

We both had a 1/2 salad and 1/2 pasta. This is a wonderful option that doesn't show on the menu -- you can order a 1/2 portion of any pasta and salad. Siroc's pasta dishes are always wonderful -- so tender and taste-filled you can't help but mutter "ummm!" with each bite. The only regret was we were too full to consider one of their great desserts.

While the food was great, the service was very slow. We waited 30-40 minutes for our appetizers to show up, and the same amount of time for the main course. It wasn't the server's fault; the kitchen was just extremely slow.

Siroc was good, but not everything I was hoping for. The appetizers (especially the quail) were good, the salad, not so much--it was fine, but nothing special. Some of the house-made pastas were very good, especially the agnolotti with braised short ribs, but again the lobster cappelacci were underwhelming. We also had the duck entree which, as duck often is, was pretty good, but didn't really stand out from the crowd. My overall impression is that the simpler options are the way to go, but for a restaurant in this class, you should be pretty happy with anything you order, and that just wasn't the case.

Overall, dinner was very good and we had a nice time. It seemed like just lots of very insignificant things added up to seem more significant. For example, we sat outside and our table was very cramped. I couldn't move my chair at all and my head was right next to one of the ambient lights and so I kept hitting my head on the light. We sat so close to the table next to us you could hear every word of their conversation and they of ours. My pasta dish was rather bland and the scallops, though plentiful, weren't cooked right - they tasted slightly rubbery. Additionally, our waitress and her assistant were quite attentive at the beginning of the meal but by the end, once the restaurant filled up, there were long gaps between service.

Our dinner at Siroc was fantastic - everything we ordered was absolutely delicious and the service was attentive but reserved. The food is creative but not over the top as some of the more trendy spots. We asked for a wine recommendation and the moderately priced bottle was one we would definitely buy again. I can't wait to go back to Siroc - maybe this week.
