Sirena Long Branch Review

We had lunch at Sirena on Saturday. Sadly, it was all show no substance. Attractive dining room and bar. Ocean/beach views were beautiful. The meals were lacking although the prices were OUTRAGEOUS. We had the scallops and strazzopretti (sp?). The scallops were chewy and stringy, For $16 you only got 3 scallops and it was served with one piece of artichoke and 2 stems of asparagus.. Never saw such an empty looking plate. My pasta was unevenly cooked and covered completely in pesto like green soup. The basil was overpowering ... my mouth puckered. And the portion was small ate it in 5 minutes ...$14. We didnt order an app or dessert. The lunch prices for them were the same for dinner. A lunch salad for $9? BTW, their online menu is not exactly the same as what's presented in-house and the prices are higher. Rather small menu and it seemed most things came with broccoli rabe which I dont care for ... forced upon me as a child.
Sorry, I cannot recommend Sirena although maybe the dinner cooks are more competent.

Afterwards, we picked up some chocolate and truffles at the Rocky Mtn Chocolate Factory for later, took home a napoleon and tiramisu from Carmella's (both absolutely delicious) and grabbed some fresh pasta and sauce at Ceriello (bachelor food). Frozen raviolis BOGO.
