    We visited Siena on a busy Friday night. We waited about 15 minutes for our reservation, but the manager was apologetic and reassured us that we would be seated as soon as possible and even offered us a drink while waiting. The service was excellent as was the food and wine list. Our concern was that the restaurant was extremely loud (with the music playing) and that made it difficult for us to have a conversation with our friends.

    We have been to Sienas many times and have enjoyed it every time. Most recently I took my sisters and they raved about the food and service. My older sister's husband has college buddies in the surrounding area so they often meet in Castle Rock as it is the most centrally located for all. They always go out for dinner and my sister said she is defintely going to recommend Sienas.

    Communication between Siena and Open Table must not be good. I had a confirmed 6:30 from Open Table, but I showed up with my guest at 6:20 and was told no, the reservation was 7:15. Embarrassing as my guest was my boss. They made room in the bar, and then it took 90 minutes for a simple dinner - just mains, no apps, salads, or desserts. Waiter was clearly stoned and his communication with the kitchen was a problem. Excellent food once it came, just not worth the confusion, noise, stoner waiter, etc.

    Friday night busy restaurant. Our server tried VERY hard to tend to us. Our hot food took FOREVER (over 1/2 hour) to come out. I had the linguine with white clam sauce. There was very little flavor. Tried to add salt and pepper but the flavor was very bland. Went for lunch two days prior and the salad was good. The chicken was dry and the bread with brie on it was chewy and hard to bite into.

    Had reservations for out-of-town family but disappointed when relegated to a wobbly table outdoors entirely too small for our party - the unacceptable alternative was bar seating on high stools for our 94-year-old mother or standing even longer until a table indoors opened up. Why make a reservation if you can't be seated when promised? We dined at Ocean Prime the next night - they were ready for us and went out of their way to accommodate our elderly mom - attention to detail and customer service that was lacking at Siena. Our server, Nick, & the delicious food helped make up for the hostesses' faux pas but offering a complimentary dessert or drink to make up for the reservation bungle would have left an even better taste in our mouths.

    For a bill over $200 you would expect to have a dining experience where you could hear the people at your table. This was not the case and we were in the back room as well. Can't control who walks in but maybe can change the atmosphere to make it apparent this is a nicer restaurant expecting the noise level to not resemble a bar. i.e. linen table cloths is a great indication to folks while walking by It would be nice to have cocktail seating outside during the live entertainment or in general vs having to stand or sit on the 2 benches outside the restaurant area not able to enjoy your wine.

    We decided to head south on I-25 for dinner on a week night vs north to downtown or the Highlands. What a treat this place is! Service was attentive and personable and courses were well-timed. Food was imaginative (not the usual) and very, very good. We had the tuna carpaccio app, prosciutto and fig salad, and the duck and eggplant entrees and couldn't have been more pleased. Parking was a breeze and the outdoor patio was beautiful. We'll definitely go back - and take friends.

    Excellent food and ambiance. We loved the cheese-tasting appetiser, and we were both very happy with our entrees: a spinach, fig and goat cheese salad, and a special butternut squash ravioli with duck ravioli. In general, the food is sort of modern northern Italian with eclectic influences and a lot of fresh, flavorful ingredients. Highly recommended!

    Located around the corner from Maddie's Biergarten in Castle Rock, Siena at the Courtyard offers the freshest breath of air and renaissance civility coveted after hours howling at the moon at the Biergarten. The food was exquisite - the filet was unsurpassed - the atmosphere convivial, and the courtyard fountain exudes Old World charm. From the moment the delightful hostess ushered us to our table in the courtyard until our server-from-heaven brought us our bill, the entire experience was extraordinary!

    On Tuesdays, the bottles of wine are half price. Unfortunately, they don't always have everything on their wine list which leads to an awkward upsell. Luckily, our server handled it with aplomb. The food was good... the service was attentive. The only thumbs-down was the overly loud Muzak / SoundScape / Sirius for Business music they were piping in. Terrible! It dominated the background. There is a large outdoor patio that could be fun at Happy Hour / evening dining.

    From moment we walked in, to our server taking pictures of our small group upon leaving, everything was excellent. The food, wine, and service was fantastic! Wish I could remember our server's name. It's been a couple of days since we were there, and it has slipped my memory. He was wonderful! This was our third time to eat at Siena. The food is always outstanding! Our recent visit was Sunday evening. We arranged to meet family members visiting from TX who we hadn't seen in over 12 yrs. We were concerned about the noise level (we wanted to be able to talk) but it wasn't an issue. Noise level does go up on Fri & Sat nights! They do get very busy! Thanks to everyone at Siena for a lovely evening!

    Short version: Best local lunch in Castle Rock. Longer version: This is our 10+ times visit to Siena, this time for lunch. They always do a very good job on the food, but the service has always been excellent. A quick business lunch was tasty with just the right amount of attention and speed from our waitress. I have been there for dinner as well - expect an eclectic crowd, and the food (especially the specials) are always very, very good. For a local Castle Rock place - Siena is a place I can count on. Yes, I will go back.

    What a delightful experience. First, I have to praise highly Jordan, our server. We were a party of 6 and there was not a single area where he did not give us the best possible attention. The food was spectacular, we all had the prime rib which was cooked to perfection for each of our tastes and all the little extras made it even more special. What a lovely place for any dining but I would especially recommend it for those special occasions.
