After a friend's recommendation, we had dinner here. The pate was good; the seafood gratin was soupy with little seafood & lots of cream. The duck was swimming in sauce. What a disappointment!

I still consider La Sirene to be my favorite restaurant but I made the mistake of going on a Sunday and the food definitely lacked in flavor and presentation. We heard from the waitress that the owner is not at the restaurant on Sundays and someone else is covering. The mussels still tasted fine but the steak was tougher than I remembered and the skate fish was not as buttery and melt in your mouth good like before. I bet on any other day of the week the food is still fantastic so I would advise anyone to avoid Sunday if possible.

I was disappointed at my last visit to La Sirene. I really liked this restaurant when it opened and I have been there over a dozen times. The food was very good and the byob is great. However, on my most recent visit I noticed that the portions of food were much smaller than on previous occasions. I no longer think it is a good value and probably will not return.

Yesterday we celebrated a pre birthday at La Sirene.The food was absolutely amazing.Kristina our waitress was a GEM.I have been to many of the top French Restaurants in NYC, but for me, La Sirene takes one of my top spots. Will be back to share this great find with other friends. KUDOS to the chef and staff. How wonderful to find such an incredible place to dine.

Extremely nice service, very friendly. We wanted to get the best on the menu and we were provided with very honest answers, food was awesome and the price was quite reasonable , so don't go by the dollar signs! The place is very small though , could be suffocating if over crowded , but we got lucky with very few diners.A must go bistro! take your own drink from home.

Food is great, no doubt.. Service was very good as well, extremely polite efficient and enjoyable. Since the place it tiny and crowded, it was very noisy. Atmosphere could kill enjoyment. I highly recommended the duck liver salad, it was done to perfection, just like it tasted in Paris. If you dont mind extremely crowded places with no spaces between people , then this is the place for you. The Food makes up for it. If you are claustrophobic, maybe you should stay away

My boyfriend recently took me to this restaurant for my birthday. We both usually get out of work on the late side and have grown accustomed (unfortunately) to getting the latest possible reservations and therefore being the last people in a restaurant while the staff are trying to break things down for the night. This can be completely disruptive for two people who are trying to enjoy an evening after working 12+ hour days. This is one of the main reasons that we loved loved loved La Sirene. It was so nice to be able to sit and talk without having some obnoxious 20-something tapping her foot and texting behind the bar every few minutes! The food was excellent, the staff was sweet, quiet and respectful and the ambiance was romantic, peaceful and easy. I would actually go so far as to say that you don't have to go to France to experience a true French meal. This is a special restaurant in that they have mastered the art of creating a perfect dining experience from the moment that you arrive to the moment that you leave. I think I fell in love with my boyfriend all over again during this meal!
