This popular classical Italian, ocean front restaurant with great views and good food is located in the attractive Pier Village section in Long Branch.
The view of the ocean is an attraction that can be seen from the large, airy dining room on two levels, and a separate bar with its own cozier ambiance. The bar area is a popular spot for millennial singles and couples who also can be found seated in booths with beach front views. Booth reservations are only taken on the same day of dining.
Dining at Sirena combines good food with ambiance, not a common combination for Jersey shore restaurants that offer scenic oceanfront views.
During the warmer months they have outdoor dining on the deck overlooking the beach and ocean.
The wait staff at Sirena is efficient and courteous, although at times, their younger wait staff may promote menu items that suit their own personal taste.
The wine list is extensive.
Sirena is the sister restaurant Cubacan and Stella Marina in Asbury Park.
Reservations are a must on summer weekends.
Sirena is open seven days/week.
Monday - Wednesday 11:30am - 10:30pm, Thursday 11:30am - 11:00pm, Friday - Saturday 11:30am - 11:30pm and Sunday 12noon - 9:30pm
Garage parking across the street is also available. If you choose to park at the garage you may find that it has an unusual automatic payment system that can take people while to figure out. Allow additional time to get through the parking system if you have a reservation for dinner.
During the warmer months, take a stroll on the boardwalk. It's a great way to walk off a filling Italian meal.
