Last night 5 of us (2 seniors) had dinner at "Sirens" to celebrate my husband's birthday. We arrived and were seated on time at our reserved table outside. Our server arrived to take our drink order about 15 min. later and said they were short-staffed. That was obvious. There was no one to clean up tables as people left, and all evening the tables were beside us were piled high with dirty plates and glasses as people left. There was a mix-up with our wine. Our server said they were "out of" red wine glasses and had to serve our red wine in white wine glasses (while dirty red wine glasses sat all around us --). She finally delivered our wine after 1/2 hour and our dinner took another 1/2 hour to arrive. My son could not eat his steak as he ordered a "medium-rare" steak and it was overdone. My crab cakes were so full of cumin that was all I could taste, and my caesar salad was very tired and old. Now, we are not "fussy" and hardly ever complain, but this was too much. Our server kept complaining to us and did her best to help us (but was slow nonetheless). She did deduct the price of my son's meal which was appreciated. My biggest complaint however, is the whole place was really dirty, especially the floors, inside and out! We ended up giving our server her proper tip (aprox. 15%) as most of the problems were not her fault. My feeling is this place is very poorly managed. With a little money spent on extra staff to serve AND CLEAN, I think in such a great location, they could attract a lot more business. I am surprised none of us got sick from the food. The only way I would deal with them again is to use their takeout for fish & chips. I know this was a busy Sat. night but they should have been prepared.
