“Good food, terrible service”
“can honestly say I will never go there again, and after talking to my friends, they all asked me why I would have ever gone there, because they all had the same bad experience.”
“Good food, terrible service”
Good food, terrible service. Love the food at Siros, but had two terrible experiences recently. Had reservations both evenings, only to show up and find one hour and then one hour and a half-long waits respectively. Both times we were offered outdoor seating - on cold evenings. Second time we waited the hour and half only to have the food come almost an hour after we had ordered. A long and painful night...I won't go back.
No Complaints. My last trip to Siro's was on Valentine's Day a few years ago - a big mistake. So when I went on a recent Tuesday night, I didn't know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised. We were seated immediately by the window overlooking the water. The service was friendly and we were not rushed at all. The salad was fresh and crisp and the shrimp scampi among the best I have ever tasted. I can't say enough about this place. It was awesome!
Siros reminds us of the little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead: When it is good, it is very, very good. When it is bad, it is horrid..
To be fair, when it is bad appears to have a lot to do with when it is overcrowded. Try to avoid eating dinner here on weekends and holidays, especially during the summer (when this picturesque Marina Bay setting teems with tourists and residents out to enjoy the patio view of the Boston skyline).
On quieter weekday nights and cold-weather weekends, we've had a memorable herb-crusted rack of lamb and a just-sweet-enough chicken Marsala over angel hair pasta. Rolled eggplant is a winner any time, pairing a garlic-herb-cheese filling with the restaurant's bold, chunky marinara. And we can still taste the wonderful garlic-grilled Tuscan bruschetta.
One holiday-weekend night, after a wait of nearly an hour for an inside table, we paid way too much for a handful of homemade lobster ravioli submerged in a cloying saffron cream sauce, and grilled Atlantic halibut obliterated by a hollandaise-like sauce (that the menu purported to be lemon caper vinaigrette).
Don't go to Siro's!!!!!!!. I feel the 8 dollars for ice cream down the pier after dinner was a much better deal. For the price of the food, it should have actually been filling. Not only was there very little food, but the food we did get was terrible. I would NOT recommend you go there unless you want to waste all of your money and go home hungry, but hey if that's your thing, then you will love it. I can honestly say I will never go there again, and after talking to my friends, they all asked me why I would have ever gone there, because they all had the same bad experience.
Dining at the Dock. This particular Siros - one of a handful in the Boston area - is located directly on the pier surrounding the boat slips at Marina Bay in Quincy, MA. It is a spectacular spot (unless you dislike water views and boats). The food and service change somewhat with the seasons, as the clientele and volume of visitors varies considerably based on the time of year. The summer is wild, and the winter is serene.
