“A WINNER”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Excellent Italian food, service and ambiance. Small restaurant,15 tables,but well worth the experience. Can be pricey if you get into the wine. Very large selection of wines. Wine and beer only. If you are interested in a SPECIAL make sure you check out the price before deciding. Hidden gem -they have a small dining room upstairs that seats 8 comfortably. Private and quiet.

“Fantastic Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

La Sirena is my hands down favorite restaurant in Palm Beach. I've been four times, all for special occasions, and it never fails to impress. The food is sublime, the service impeccable, the ambience intimate and romantic. The dining room is small, but that only adds to the allure. NOT a hugh, bustling room filled with loud voices, but a quiet place where a couple away for some special time or a family celebrating a happy occasion don't have to scream at one another to hear themselves over the din. And the food....amazing. I'm of Italian descent, and this tastes like my Grandmother used to make. The neighborhood is industrial on a major road, but the grounds are tended to and their parking lot is ample. I always want to go back here! It's a special occasion place, so it's not cheap. But it's worth the money.

“Very Professional. Very Good”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

This was our first visit to La Sirena. We had heard good things about it. It's been touted as the best Italian restaurant in North Palm Beach County. Perhaps. We haven't eaten at every Italian restaurant around so we'll reserve judgment as to whether La Sirena is the best. Based on this visit, if it isn't the best, it is very, very good.

The restaurant itself is located along a very nondescript stretch of highway in West Palm Beach. South Dixie Highway is a somewhat industrialized area full of different varieties of small businesses. Don't hold this against La Sirena. That's the way it is for most restaurants in this area. La Sirena has its own parking lot with a parking lot attendant. It is housed in a stand alone building. It is not a large dining room, but it is a place where the owners have worked hard to create an ambience of fine dining.

You enter the restaurant and the bar is at the far end closest to the entrance. It is more of a service bar than a place to hang out. You are greeted promptly. We had a reservation and were shown directly to our table. There were four of us. Water and bread came pretty quickly. Thereafter, a waiter appeared to recite a rather extensive list of daily specials. Interestingly, the recitation failed to mention any of the prices, something we considered to be an oversight.

The tables are set with starched white cloths. It's that kind of place. The waiters are dressed in classic uniforms. They are well trained. It's that kind of place. The food is very good. Since there were four of us, we were able to sample a good portion of the menu. All of our food was good. The drinks were good and the wine list is complete and fairly priced. Portions were excellent. None of us left hungry. We very much enjoyed our meal at this restaurant and will return.

“Italy's finest”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Although they pack you in it's worth it. It is not often you find a restaurant of this caliber outside of Italy. The food is wonderful equaled by the service, can't wait to return again and again.
