Chef Martin Lackovic, formerly of Galileo, I Matti, and The Caucus Room opened Siroc Restaurant on McPherson Square with brothers Keram and Mehdi Dris who run the front of the house. Siroc's seasonal menu features cooking inspired by Italy and the Mediterranean with housemade pastas, charcuterie, salads, and entrées. The new restaurant takes its name from a wind that blows from northern Africa to Italy and the Mediterranean.

Super convenient to our hotel. Atmosphere was quiet and subdued. Not too loud. Service was awesome as was the water guy who had our glassed filled. Wine selection is good and some mid priced wines that won’t break the bank. Food was great. I had the Osobosco and it was delicious. Not overcooked, with meat falling off the bone. 2 guests had the seafood stew and they loved it. The others had pasta dishes and they were all raving about how good the food was. Didn’t have desserts but will on next trip. If you’re in WDC and looking for a value/medium priced restaurant would highly recommend.

My friend and I split an app and an entree, they came to us on individual plates making it easy. The food was excellent, as always. We sat outside as it was a nice, sunny day in DC. Service was excellent.

Food was good but a little pricey for what we got. It can definitely get loud if there are bigger parties but overall a decent Italian restaurant.

The waitstaffs were helpful and professional. The squid ink tagliatelle with seafood was delicious and the bunet was to die for.

Social distancing was observed.

This is my new favorite restaurant in the city. The food was fantastic! The waitstaff were genuinely welcoming, efficient, and polite. Their service was truly delightful. For anyone looking to dine in Downtown DC and enjoy high quality food and wine at reasonable prices, Siroc is a must experience! Can’t wait to return!

Friendly service, good wine list and affordable prices. Food was just OK, but overall lacked the richness of flavor one expects from high-end Italian cuisine.

Top of the line. Great service, great chef!

Kale Cesar salad could be an entree, but the meat lasagna was so worth having as well.

Great job as always.

We went to Siroc to celebrate a birthday and it happened to be a Saturday night when they were quite busy and short-staffed (a situation more restaurants are facing these days). Despite the energetic efforts of the entire staff to take care of everyone, it took longer than expected to get our meal. The food was delicious and nicely presented. Our waitress was very friendly and apologetic about the situation. I hope to dine here again when they're fully staffed.

Siroc is a charming little restaurant near Franklin Park with both inside and outside seating. The food is very good, and the ambiance is lovely. It was perfect for a quiet lunch with a friend. We arrived for a late lunch and stayed long, but never felt unwelcome or rushed to leave. Service was impeccable.

We dined in Siroc last night. Upon arrival we were greated by Mehdi, one of the owners. We had a wonderful meal, Ossobuco and Branzino was out of this world, we had homemade Burata mozzarella with sweet and sour eggplant for an appatizer, which was my favourite, for the dessert homade Tiramisu sealed the deal. It was a perfect evening, service was very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go there again.

Possibly the worst dinner I’ve ever had. It was the only restaurant that had open tables that could be reserved for any time of the night. We should have seen that red flag.

The menu and service are top notch at this place. We shared an unusual and delicious appetizer Fried Eggplant topped with Tomato Chutney • Black Olives • Mozzarella • Basil Aioli. Also enjoyed: Branzino Filet. Sauteed Snow Peas • Cauliflower Puree • Sauteed Local Shiitake Mushrooms. This description doesn't do justice to the delicious sauce that the snow peas and mushrooms were in. Squid Ink Tagliatelle with Seafood--Black Pasta • Lobster • Shrimp • Squid • Lobster - Tomato Sauce • Basil.
Amazing. Their bread is top notch also. The server did a great job of checking in with us (we didn't order for a really long time) without being obtrusive and took with good humor our failures to look at the menu. Too busy getting caught up. Price wise I would say Siroc is moderate by DC standards, given the quality. Has a large outdoor area set pretty far back from the street. Inside the tables are well spaced for easy conversation. I really recommend this nice restaurant.

Hostess and server were very attentive. My lamb chops were cooked perfectly and delicious, and my husband enjoyed his lasagna. Would have preferred to have a side vegetable with my meal instead of ala carte. Was surprised with a almond cake dessert to celebrate our 39th anniversary--nice gesture! Beautiful decor as well.
