This Scottish / Irish tavern is one of the only decent places in the Financial District to get a drink, a fact that accounts for its wild popularity -- that and the fact that the food is better than average.
The WORST service in New York – I am an event organizer and have visited this establishment on four different occasions over the last year. I understand places have 'off days' so I revisited in order to update my rolodex. Bottom line is the servers and barstaff are disorganized, rude and slow. Given the dearth of establishments and shortage of patrons in the current economic climate, these staff are doing a disservice to owners and patrons alike. Avoid this place, the rudeness and incompetence of the servers is embarassing and annoying. It has been bad for a year, with little sign fo improvement.
WORST BARTENDERS EVER – THE SERVICE IS TERRIBLE, THE WORST BARTENDERS EVER SPECIAL KEITH AND JULYA TOGETHER HAVE THE MOST ARROGANT ANOXEOUS ATTITED EVER , THEY ARE SO NO POLITE RUDE, PLUS IS LOOK TO ME LIKE ARE MISERY WORKING THERE, ANYWAY I AM REGULAR BUT I TRIED AVOID THEM, AS WELL MY HUSBAND , IS A SHAME , FOOD ITS OK BUT VERY RUDE SERVICE, OMG BAD MANAGERS TERRIBLE THEY SHOULD GET FRESH PRETTY BARTENDERS SMILE .. HELLO NOT SMILE THEY SHOULD GET FIRED AND WORK IN A FACTORY OR SOME PLACE NO ONE HAVE TO DEAL WITH THEM VERY VERY RUDE
Horrible Drinks – I've been to Ulysses twice over the past week and they have by far the worst drinks in the city! Its embarrassing.
Ugly chicks, Poor service, Bad drinks – Bad everything...just such a classless joint. Stupid Ugly Golddiggin' Bimbos trying to get free drinks & your $$$$$$
Racist/Horrible Managment – So this place used to be an ok place to go. After going in with my friends and the bartender refusing to serve us without even looking at our ids because my friends weren't "racially up to his standards" even though other bartenders have served them frequently without concern with the same IDS that some how
werent good enough for this bartender...who required passports....funny no one carries passports around also even better when a group of people went in later without passports and were served with the ids they had....(some of which were fake but went unnoticed by the great bartender) then having the management side with them by some arrogant man who can not have a rational/mature/professional conversation to save his life since he seems to be in "Bar mode" I would suggest heading to Jersey and enduring the train ride before wasting your time at a place like this. Theres a million places on stone street. SKIP THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Poor Service – Shrimp Cocktail tasted xtrmemly fishy. Also, ordered the "same" drink 3 different times and each time I received it they were COMPLETELY different. I had ordred a drink of their cocktail menu and obviously the bartenders did not pay attention to the actual ingredients that are listed on the menu. If that wasn't annoying enough I had to wait almost 20 minutes to get my last round and they only brought half the order. When we told the bartender that we were waiting on several more he appolgized and said he'd bring the rest but never returned. When the waiter finally came to our table half of the party had already finished their drinks while the others were still waiting.
Convenient and cute spot but needs some serious work with service and consistancy.
Refreshing – My wife and I stopped in last night after work. I kept noticing the place during the days I was test riding a Buell Ulysses and always meant to stop in.
The service was excellent, beer and ice tea (fresh brewed) great, and the fish and chips I had fit the perfect "bar food" role. . . great food and off the chart fries.
Even in my sunset years I'm finding myself tempted to start getting in here more often.
The Siren of the FiDi – I love this place. Always great fun, good drinks, and don't miss the live music and Wii nights. Perfect neighborhood bar for the Financial Distric, which is otherwise lacking in options.
Great place in Fidi – This is a neighborhood/local's bar on Stone St that isnt trying to be anything more than that! Excellent friendly staff, great selection of brews and awesome bar food - where else can you get amazing fries at 3am? Have live music a few nights a week, plus nightly specials. thankfully it is within crawling distance to my apt!
Just ok in NYC where you have choices. – Mixed review
1) This is a great summer place outside good social scene and good wait staff
2) The relief/later bartenders are nice.
3) Very good food at a fair price
4) the room to the side of the main bar is interesting
5) Too many guys( 80-90%)
6) Inside it takes forerever to get a drink becuase they are understaffed.
7) The bartenders look stressed.So they can often be rude
8) The decor has these little partitions/cubicles that crowd the walking space and you can't see the bar
9) No happy hour
10) I don't like to criticise but I work around the area and have been there 50-60 times over the years mostly outside and in groups and it has improved some but not enough. All IMHO but it appears some folks concur.
