    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 12/29/2013
    Each year we look fot a new restaurant to celebrate our anniversary, and after 29 years we have experience most of the great restaurants in the Providence area. One of our all-time favorites is Siena in Federal Hill, so we thought we would give the Smithfield location a try...we were not disappointed! Our server (Merry) was very attentive and timed the serving of each of the courses perfectly, and the food was was every bite as good as the Fedral Hill location! We would definitely recommend this restaurant, and will enjoy it again in the near future!

    The dining room was beautifully decorated for the holidays. All the staff were welcoming, efficient and friendly. There were three of us; one had a chicken dish, one had a veal dish and I had swordfish, all three were terrific and oerfectly cooked. Portions were appropriate. The Caprese salad was outstanding, the salad special of the day was terrific with a winter vegtable added. The lemon creme brûlée was truly fantastic. We all decided we would want to return soon, it was a very enjoyable evening.

    Shaihalude
    Dined on 12/22/2013
    This the third Siena's that I've dined at. Found all three to be excellent and rival RI's tops-Café Nuovo and Capricios. My experiences with these resturants began on a Sunday when I was alone looking for a place to have dinner. I called the Providence location and asked if during hour if they had service for one. At the time I was traveling extensive ly and on numerous occasions I was told that there was service for one and after over an hour wound up eating at the bar. When I arrived at the Providence location I waited while a table was set up for one diner. I've never had a bad experience at this chain and I found the Smithfield location living up to the quality in food, service and ambience I expect. Look forward to future visits.

    Siena is a wonderful restaurant! It's great to finally have a local place for fine dining with interesting and delicious food. I love everything about it except the very loud music which seems oddly out of place and does not fit the otherwise beautiful atmosphere they've so carefully created. I love music and have an extensive, eclectic collection so this isn't about not understanding music, it's about how inappropriate music at an inappropriate level can detract from an otherwise wonderful experience.

    This restaurant is new, so we were not sure what to expect when we got there. The place is beautiful inside. But what was even more impressive was the staff. Every staff member from the hostess to the bartenders, from the waitresses, to the water servers were spot on attentive, professional, and happy. The food was spectacular. I had the Steak Giuseppe. It was cooked perfectly and had wonderful flavor. We indulged in some parmesan truffle oil fries that were very yummy. My husband had had a seafood dish which he savored. We ended the night with a chocolate bread pudding. There was not a crumb left on the plate. It was all so delicious. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great dining experience

    Once again we had a negative experience upon entering Siena Smithfield. Host/hostess ignored us. Host/owner actually looking beyond me to acknowledge a man who entered later. (I'm a woman.) When the last member of our party arrived, she was told we weren't there yet. She waited 20-minutes without being acknowledged again. She thought we were late-we thought she was late. Food is great, but the restaurant needs to work on first impressions.

    Upon this visit to the most recent addition to this restaurant, in Smithfield, I was left very disappointed. The evening started out fantastic with a great cheese and meat plate. Unfortunately, the main course was the demise of the evening. The braised short rib was poorly presented on a large plate with a portion so small it looked overmatched by the green beans. The meat was dry and not very tender. Very disappointing on the addition of so called risotto on the plate that was barely visible. My dining partner had the frutti di mare which was so so. The only positive from this evening was the apologetic manager and waiter who apologized for the poor meal. Very attentive to the concerns. I must praise them for their attention.

    My wife and I went to Siena early Thursday evening after a wake and thought we deserved a nice, quiet dinner. Everything was nice until they started playing loud Christmas music. Our waitress sent over a manager who apologized who said she would take care of it. They may have lowered the volume but we couldn't tell. Too bad. Just another sports bar but with really good food.

    Food is always great. Service is always great. Best there is. I used to go to the Siena in Providence regularly. Recently I tried the one in Smithfield. I find it more spacious, and easier to make reservations so it has quickly become my go to spot.

    STEVE
    Dined on 12/7/2013
    Overall food quality was good, some items were very good. One or two not to our liking. The chef seems to have a heavy hand with cream on the creamy items on the menu, so beware if you are like us, we like a "creamy" dish once in a while, but not over the top cream. Some chefs have become very adept at incorporating cream into recipes in a balanced manner.

    Siena in Smithfield is beautiful! We were greeted warmly by the hostess, who was not flustered at all after we had checked in and then spotted some friends sitting at the bar so we went over to chat a bit. When we returned to the hostess she politely had us seated in a cozy table near their beautiful fireplace. After looking at the familiar menu (( have dined many times in Providence and EG), I choose to have a perfectly made, and poured Ketel One Martini, I then choose an artichoke app, to share with my friend. She had the butterflied veal chopped, which I tasted, and was excellent, and I had my all time favorite the chiopinni (sp.)! Food, drinks, and service were excellent!

    Tight seating and our seats were located in an area where the table was constantly catching the draft every time the door opened. This will not keep me from going back, but will make me become a pesky diner who asks for a different table if it appears I am going to be placed in one of these seats.

    This resteraunt is just what the area needed. As someone who loves to eat in the hill, but hates the getting there. This is great. The food, the staff, drinks, are spot on. I've been here five times in the last two months and someone who is a steak snob. The steak has been consistently amazing. Giuseppe steak with Gorgonzola cream sauce "wow". The staff are knowledgable about the menu, with many meat, olive and cheese boards waiting to be created by you. Yum. I say skip the trying to decide and go all the meat, cheese, and olives they have available and the special cheese and splurge. You deserve it. If you don't, you will feel as if you do after eating. Cheers. Amazing food each and every time. Thank you.

    The food was good and nicely presented. I had the salmon which was perfectly cooked, the truffle fries were tasty but a little on the cool side when served. My favorite was the cheese, olive and prosciutto board...excellent choice to have on a menu. On the negative side the music is way too loud...you have to compete with it while trying to enjoy conversation.

    Took our parents for dinner here on a Sunday and we all loved it. We were concerned about the noise level because it was located in a strip mall, but you would never have guessed it was! Ambiance was fine, food terrific, and they were ale to accommodate our request for pizza bolognese which I was told is a must have! It was wonderful. Only reason I dinged service is that they didn't give any tools for use with lobster in my moms Cioppino. We used our hands, which worked out ok just a little messy.
