La Sirene UWS
Since May 2007, La Sirène remains an authentic French bistro that is a great place for a date or a nice family dinner. The restaurant style is French Semi Gastronomy, or "casual fine dining".
We are now open for Lunch and Dinner, and for Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30am to 3:30pm.
Please note: our Dinner Menu is not available during Brunch hours, except for Desserts.
We now accept Cash, major Cryptocurrencies and major CCs as payment.
This restaurant is such a find. The wait staff are lovely and the food is delicious. Real French bistro cooking. We’ve only had breakfast and brunch, but we went back several times in a week. Love this place!
This was a wonderful place to have an early breakfast on my own. Nice location, with kind waitstaff. I enjoyed the food, and setting. (I was able to access the restroom easily, but it is down stairs, and that would be difficult for someone with mobility issues.)
This boîte is a lovely and romantic place to find well on French bistro staples, always well prepared. The prices are a little high, but fair enough; the wine list is expensive. The service is fine.
Small portions and expensive.
The food was delicious, authentic French. Atmosphere great. The service was top notch and the wine recommendation was terrific. I will return again and again.
Very good authentic french bistro food without the silly melodramatic frills at reasonable prices. Everyone I have recommended this place to has thanked me and, in turn, has recommended it to others.
Wonderful brunch. French toast is to die for. Popovers are huge but tend to bed on the dry side. Coffee was served with grounds in it. French fries are pure heaven. Service was somewhat inattentive but it is brunch in NYC.
Fabulous! Our second visit and we’re going back again tomorrow
La Sirene is our favorite restaurant on the west side of NY--- delicious food, great service, wonderful ambiance -- a real find. When work gets out it will be impossible to get a table.
Great food and good service! Very friendly! Would go back again for sure.
Very nice date place. Full bar in terms of wine, alcohol etc. Wish they had a real bar to sit at but food is good, selections varied enough. A little pricey but good quality and lovely neighbourhood romantic place.
I general we really liked the place. My only problem was that the fish was overly salty. But I certainly plan on coming back.
Excellent food and amazing service! Highly recommend!
Service terrific (waitstaff: Anna) at UWS location. Food very good at lunch (too much cream in the Ravioles de Royan. Chicken livers excellent but salad could be more interesting -- perhaps on toast with mixed salad on the side -- otherwise food would get a 5). Delicious real popovers with strawberry butter, actual hot tea in a pot.
Ambience is authentically French bistro: small, cute, casual, not loud even when busy, totally lovely.
Very good traditional French food with excellent service
Just lovely! Service was attentive without being in your face and we all loved our dishes, especially the duck and the salmon. The cheese tart and the mussels were a nice starter and the profiteroles were a wonderful way to wrap up the evening. The food was authentically French and quiet enough to hear our entire group of 4. I would not hesitate to go again!
This evening was our first time at La Sirene. What a cozy, warm delicious pleasure it was! A very friendly staff and the ambiance added so much to our evening. Very creatively prepared wonderful food that we enjoyed, and being new in the neighborhood ( us), it was a find!! We will certainly be back!
Love they’re serving breakfast which has so many wonderful options and delicious! Service is sweet! The owner chef Didier is a sweetheart! Tres Bon!
Wonderful restaurant. Excellent food. Try the Escargot. Service was very efficient and welcoming. Will return again.
What an amazing neighborhood gem! Quaint environment with outstanding food and wine. Will definitely return!
This place is a gem! They absolutely nail the classics. The care and attention devoted to every detail is evident. Couldn’t be better.
We had an extraordinary dinner with friends visiting from London. Every dish, from the appetizers through the desserts, was superb. Similarly, the wine selection is first-rate. The service is warm, welcoming, and efficient. The décor is intimate, and even if every table is full, quiet. Prices are quite reasonable.
Authentic French. Substitute for actually being in France and dining in a favorite neighborhood restaurant
La Sirene is superb classic French fare with some updated twists. Everything is prepared with great care, and the staff is warm and friendly. It's one of our favorite restaurants on the Upper West Side.
Delicious food, romantic atmosphere and wonderful service. Our favorite French neighborhood restaurant.
terrific menu. very relaxed. a traditional bistro experience which is getting harder to find. will make it a regular stop.
Delicious food !
We loved the food, the ambiance, the service....the cozy comfort
Very disappointed. Really enjoyed downtown location and this one is not up to it.
Acceptable food, friendly service
I was celebrating my birthday
The food was terrific, well prepared, tasty and interesting, not ordinary fare. They were also most accommodating in lowering the music so we could easily engage in conversation.
Excellent cuisine. Attentive service. Love the upper west side atmosphere.
Delicious cassoule... and it was actually possible to hold a normal conversation with my dinner mates, as the music was low. So seldom the case these days, as most NYC restaurants are intolerably and painfully loud.
Anyone who enjoys French food would find this charming little restaurant a delight.
Food was amazing. Probably the best red snapper I've ever had! Server didnt really know what she was doing
This is a wonderful gem on the UWS. Decorated like a train in France. The menu has a great story about the beginnings of the restaurant- a great NYC story. The menu has stayed basically the same for awhile- but I’m fine with it. The baked Pear appetizer is fresh and full flavored with a bit of cheese. I only had appetizers. My main course was the chèvre tarteline, which was great as a full dish with a side salad accompanying the tart. My friends had the modules, the small amount which is generous. One had the curry modules and the other with Dijon. These guys eat moules internationally and they loved them. An order of the pâté de Compagne was ordered- again a generous portion.
The dirty martini was just right .
I always look forward to going here, I like the front by Amsterdam, by a window. There is a small outside area as well.
A very nice place for a quiet dinner in the UWS. The menu has a surprisingly large number of choices for such a small place, and the execution is very good. The wine list is small, but sufficient, and the prices are quite fair.
Love this restaurant true nyc neighborhood chic gem
When we sat down, the music they were playing was too loud. I asked the waitress if it could be turned down, which was done immediately. The mushroom omelettes we ordered were absolutely delicious as were the finely cut frites and salad which came with them.
