Definitely "special occasion" dining to relax and enjoy with friends and/or beloved family, as couples. We were celebrating August birthdays, mask-wearing and good health, at a socially responsible distance. Covid19 = outdoor dining on a warm August 2020 evening. French mussels- garlic and butter, hangar...steak- garlic and butter, duck breast and filet of cod (fish special) were our entries. Delicious! All cooked, per the chef, "a la minute," with preparation and presentation over "watching the clock" dining. Sides: puree of carrot, fresh string beens, mini califlower and a special root vegetable with the best les frites! Dessert- 4 small scoops of refreshing rasberry sorbet with a fine graham cracker surround, coconut ice cream, banana ice cream. Lovely, accomodating staff service. One cannot eat like this frequently, but La Sirene fits the bill here in NYC when travelling to Paris and the southern part of France are not a safe or reasonable option.More

I understand that it might be restaurant week and they don't care but i would gladly came back if i liked it. Crazy crowd. They overbook tables so people stand on you when you eat and trying to have a conversation. Food was ok but...nothing to brag about, service is slow as well since they are super busy.More

Dear Skosyak, We're very sorry to hear about your negative experience. We did not expect such a turn out for the first weekend into Restaurant Week Winter 2020.! Rest assured that we will now make sure we are fully staffed and ready from now on....More

We went to La Sirene for Restaurant Week. Positive: the food and the wine are very good. Negative: we had a reservation, and waited 30 minutes just to be seated. The line with customers having a reservation was very long. We received the main course...2h15 after we entered in the restaurant. It was extremely long, we had to stay 3h30 in the restaurant to have our entire dinner. This is unacceptable. Furthermore, this is similar to a lot of NYC restaurants, it was extremely noisy. Thus, it was not a nice experience and we will not go back.More

I love La Sirene! I've been going there for many years. Small, quaint, lovely and dedicated staff! Fantastic owner! It was my go to spot for an anthentic Cassoulet in New York, or even the US. Unfortunately their Cassoulet has changed. For the past couple...of months, the Cassoulet is no longer what it used to be. Now, more liquid, lighter and less rich. Where is the fat, the heartiness of the authentic Cassoulet of yesteryears that you could enjoy with a good Southern french wine like a Cotes du Roussillon, Minervois ou Fronton AOC! What it just me? No, a few people confirmed my impressions. Reluctantly, I have dropped the Cassoulet but the good side is that I now choose their hanger steak (Onglet) which is exquisite! But If I have one wish for the owner! Please bring back former recipe this winter!!More

I just enjoyed a delicious dinner at La Sirene, near my hotel in Soho. The Seared Froie Gras was in a rich balsamic duck glaze and cooked perfectly. I found it delightful with the bread or eaten on its own. My entree was the Gnocchi...Parisian au Gratin, also a winner. The gnocchi was sizzling hot, soft, rich and creamy. For dessert, the Banana Brûlée was wonderful - a cross between banana cream pie and creme brûlée. The service was outstanding! Two friendly, helpful servers worked in tandem to keep me feeling well attended, but without hovering. I highly recommend it!More

This is an outstanding option if you love French food. Everything was outstanding. We had two amazing truffle dishes, and loved the lamb chops, the duck and the cassoulet.

Just finished a nice dinner at La Sirene around the corner from my accomodation in Tribeca ( La Sirene is in Soho a couple of blocks away). La Sirene has a good French menu with the odd American twist. At Dinner they have a 3...course set menu for $42 plus tax and tip which is good value in NYC. The food was well prepared and presented with the starters coming with a generous/ varied salad and the main course( entree in this part of the world ) with four types of vegetables that hit the spot. I appreciated getting more than my four serves of veg for the day. The wine list has a good selection of French wines that is not overwhelming as in some establishments where you need a degree In oenology to fully appreciate. The prices were sensible with the $50-70 range being well served ( spend more if you wish). The staff were attentive and helpful without being in your face. So overall very happy and appreciative of the La Sirene in my last night in NYC.More

We just happened to find this spot after checking into our hotel. A quaint and small French gem. It was packed for lunch (because of the $25 3-course lunch for French Restaurant Week?). For starters we had their onion soup (very hot) and large green...salad. Entrees were chicken and fish of the day. Desserts were sorbet and creme brule. All tasty. Well presented and great service. And wine and tip and a nice lunch for 2 was $120.More

Celebrated our anniversary at this little restaurant in Soho. I had the duck which was delicious. My wife had the lamb which she said was tender & moist. Great place.

Can't really remember the wine cost, but it was in keeping with the rest of the meal. And the waiter went out of his way to recommend the most suitable wine rather than the most expensive, which we really appreciated.
