La Sirena
Italian destination by Mario Batali

The Zagat Review
A “hit” from the Batali-Bastianich team, this “high-end” hot spot in Chelsea’s Maritime Hotel delivers a “refined Italian” menu led by “first-rate” pastas; the “gorgeous” layout includes a sprawling patio and “huge, airy bar” that mixes “ambitious” cocktails and hosts a “happening” scene.

Very good and inventive Italian-inspired food, friendly service (a bit casual, so it depends on what you expect). Overall a good mix between tradition and modernity, both in the plate and the decor (white tablecloth and modern lamps, etc). The tasting menu is a good value for a Michelin starred restaurant in NYC. Italian style means generous, large portions (they don't want you to leave hungry) so be strategic when you order! Great for dinners with family and friends, don't expect anything flashy. We ate inside during winter, but the outdoor patio seems to be a very nice place for warmer days. The reason I didn't give 5 stars: the pasta tasted really great but were slightly overcooked, which is a missed opportunity for an Italian restaurant.

Great cocktails and festive atmosphere. Our group really enjoyed the appetizers, but I was not as impressed with my entree of the black spaghetti. It came to the table somewhat cold and the sauce was not what I expected. When the weather is nice, the patio area is great and elevated above street level.

Got the without a reservation asked for a table outside and even though they had about 5 available ones they didn't want to 'waste' a for person table and asked me to wait by the bar... Normally fair but not on a dead night where all those tables remained empty during the 1+ hour I was there... They also could transfer my tab from the bar to my table so I had to close this after just a few tips... This is a Michelin star restaurant?? Anyways, table service was pretty good, the starter, a fluke crudo was superb but a tiny portion... The pasta was pretty tasty but a little overcooked and a small portion as well which I normally don't expect for pasta... The desert was really imaginative and tasty. Paid around $90 per person (only one drink) and while tasty I can't say I was full... I guess the price is because of the Michelin star but I don't think it's really justified
