Well, this was a first for me. I’ve never left my table to complain before, but this was awful from start to finish. We were seated 20 minutes after we arrived, and with no apology. Our main courses didn’t arrive until an hour and 40...minutes into the meal. We had to send wine back as the glass still had soap suds in it. The butter was rock hard and had a sour taste like it had been in the fridge too long. When I complained we were given a round of drinks for free, but no explanation. Overall, it felt like a place with no chef in the kitchen and running way too hot, just to get in the summer dollars. Avoid until they sort themselves out.More

Very good Italian. The Vongole was a bit oily but the food was overall very good. Great views and excellent service. Will come back.

We booked a table there on a busy Saturday for a dinner time. We arrived on time, but there were three groups waiting to be served before us. One group -- a couple --probably had an outside table but they wanted to switch to a...table inside, and took a while before they were taken to an inside table. When it was out turn, we were taken to an outside table, but since it was chilly, we also wanted to switch. But a lady at the reception said no we can't. Either we sat at an outside table or we had to leave. Meanwhile, a couple who obviously did not have a reservation showed up, and the guy gave cash to all the receptionists so that they got a table inside. I got upset and left. Every bad thing about NJ was there...More

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

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