The atmosphere was nice, despite the pandemic. Had the salmon dish which was good, some seating areas obviously nicer than others with views. I would go back again.

Wow, what a great evening. Party of six enjoyed 3 course meal at Sirena's! Great food, great service and great view! Our server (Nina) was Awesome!! Excellent service and great sense of humor! Started with some cocktails, reasonably priced, I had a very nice Manhattan!!...We shared appetizers, Pizza, salad and calamari. All very good. Four of the group had filet mignon, all done to perfection, my wife enjoyed the bone in short ribs and I enjoyed the pork chop diavolo, also done perfectly. Portion are very good size, you would be satisfied even without appetizers. Wine selection was very good and reasonably priced. Try the Banana Bread pudding for dessert, warm with ice cream and whipped cream. I could not plan this evening any better. All around a home run. Food, people and atmosphere. We will be back soon. Call for a reservation and go!! Great restaurant for a special occasion.More

We had a great mid-afternoon lunch yesterday at Sirena. Beautiful white cloth restaurant but also casual at the Jersey shore. We started with Pasta Fagioli and Burrata Salad - both perfectly prepared and presented. The soup was a perfect blend of taste and aroma2 Bowls...and a loaf of bread would have kept me quite content ! Main course was the pasta special which was loaded with shrimp and scallops and the Marechiara with black spaghetti. The Marechiara was seasoned perfectly and loaded with fresh shrimp, scallops, mussels and small tender clams. The sauce was perfect - spicy but not overpowering and I needed more bread for dipping ! Topped it off with Capuccino which was perfectly prepared and a Tartufo and a Zabaglione. The Tartufo was good (can't do that bad) but the Zabaglione with Strawberries was excellent ! The view was beautiful on a summer day watching the boats on the ocean, fisherman on the sand and birds in the air. The service was m=what made it best - Kevin made it very personal sharing recommendations that fit what we were looking for. He was excellent - very attentive and never intrusive. Overall a bit pricey but it was a perfect lunch.More

Set right on the shore we enjoyed a delicious dinner. Although it was crowded, the was ample staff to be sure everyone was satisfied! Pasta, fish and wine. We will definitely return.

We came here for lunch Valentines Day weekend. We soli calamari appetizer that I have been craving ever since. Not only do you get fried calamari but also fried veggies mixed in there so the portion is hearty. It was 5 star. I had the...risotto with rock shrimp and shaved asparagus...my husband had salmon and we shared bread pudding for dessert. Everything was excellent. Their drink menu is fun also.. Oh and how can I forget to mention the views...it’s on the beach!!!More

Even though we had made our reservation well in advance, we were seated at the worst possible table. Our table was in front of a very busy server computer station. Which is located along the path of servers balancing trays of food and beverages over...our heads while stepping aside to make room for customers and staff who were constantly passing. To matters worse, A CONTINUOUS DROP OF CONDENSATION FROM THE AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM WAS DRIPPING ON MY SON-IN-LAWS HEAD AND SHOULDER. Many times we asked our waiter Slavche to have our table changed. He was nice, but he said there was nothing he could do. Out of total frustration, as the water dripped, we asked Slavche to get us a manager. She saw the drip and the napkins on my son-in-laws head and shoulder, she said, "There is nothing we can do about it, the air conditioning is running all day, its condensation". She said she could not change our table and did absolutely nothing. She couldn't care less, other people were waiting to be seated. Be aware, there is a 7 person or more tipping policy at Sirena Risorante. Our bill had a hand written tip added $106.90. We were a party of a 2 year old child, a child who ordered nothing and was not served, a seven year old and six adults. This is disgusting for such despicable customer service. When we got home, I sent an email, with photos to the Restaurant Manager Brian Rauh, I have never received a response and this, couldn't care less about you, customer service has never been acknowledged. As for the Italian food, from an Italian, there was nothing exceptional about it. Save your money, Rooney's Oceanfront restaurant has great food and exceptional customer service.More

We went to Sirena's to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. She had her first (Legal) Cosmo at the bar, which is very nice. The bartender was very accommodating and welcoming. I was a Monday night, so it wasn't very crowded when we arrived before 6....The bar and the restaurant filled up later. (Many restaurants in NJ are closed on Mondays). The bread and olive oil was tasty. We skipped the appetizers and went right to the entrees. My daughter had the Pappardelle Bolognese with beef, veal, pork ragu, and mascarpone. It was very good. I had a special with black ink cavatelli with shrimp. It was spicy and also very good. My wife had the veal saltimbocca. She didn't like the marsala taste and said the dish overall was mediocre. My sis-in-law ordered the mushroom risotto, but they brought out mushroom ravioli. We waited about 45 minutes for dinner to be served, so she kept the ravioli which she said were fine, but nothing special. Overall, it was a less than satisfactory night. There are a lot of really good Italian restaurants in the area, and Sirena should step up its game. It's a pretty place and one of the few with an Ocean view, but the food and service need to be improved.More

The location, directly overloooking the ocean, is what makes this place. They have an excellent and very reasonably priced Wine list. There's a lively bar scene,and I've also eaten at the Bar. The service in both the restaurant and the bar is excellent. The food...is okay, just average. Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with the food, and the portions are generous, but it's simply average Italian cooking - nothing special.More

Nice casual. It's on the boardwalk so no need to dress elegantly but definitely not beach attire either.
