    My friend and I dined at the restaurant, the food and service were very good. Because of the price, we were expecting a more fine dining experience, however we arrived to see a more open floor plan and a much more casual dress code. It seemed like it would be very family friendly, as well.

    The out door dining was great, with the Vineyard in the background. However, the food and the pricing was not so great. The eggs Benedict were over cooked and rock sold eggs. There seemed like there was something missing for the food. The pricing was ridiculously high for the kind of food we go. Side toast was $5, three pieces of Bacon were $6 a Small Mimosa glass was $10.

    Siena at the Meritage is my number 3 spot for brunch. Claremont Resort #1, Scott's Seafood #2 and now Siena. I love coming here and one of the hostess Renee always remembers me. We had Maria as our host and she did a great job of servicing a table of 8. The food is always fresh and the overflowing mimosas were great. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because they add the egg omelette as an entree. Now mind you , you get the all inclusive fruits, cheese, salmon, etc. Oh and they dont have capers. Service was a little off but other than that I will recommend as always.

    Service was slow. The waiter kept disappearing. Our dessert sat on the counter for at least 10 minutes until I finally got up and got up and said to the kitchen is this our order? They said yes, then said they would call the waiter to deliver. That took an additional 5 minutes - I should have just grabbed it myself. Needless to say, we were not happy and did not leave a nice tip.

    Went back on a Saturday, expecting their regular breakfast menu as it had been very good when we had visited several months ago. Instead all that was available was a mediocre buffet that was expensive and not much better than Holiday Inn's free breakfast. Too bad but we won't be going back.

    The food was good, and the service & chef easily accommodated one of or party who had a specific dietary requirement. However, the service was so slow (one hour per course- seriously) that it was really uncomfortable. There are so many other good restaurants in Napa, that I would not recommend Siena.

    My wife and I dined here while staying at the Vino Bello Resort. It's very convenient because we just walked there from our room. After looking over Tyne menu we both chose the French Onion soup which was really good. She had the special, sea bass with pasta while I had the veal pasta dish. Both were really good. We will most likely come here again.

    The only positive thing I can say about this place is that it's within the confines of the Meritage Resort - which is somewhat isolated from Napa or any wine area restaurants. If you're looking for a Napa dining experience, this isn't the place you're looking for. The desserts were pretty good… other than that, pretty average.

    Great atmosphere, delicious food, and excellent service. This was by far one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time in Napa. I definitely recommend giving it a try. Every item I tasted was incredible. Fresh flavors cooked perfectly. Very friendly staff and the Chefs were wonderful. I will definitely go back when in Napa!

    The food was delicious. The caesar salad, roast chicken and fresh pasta were very good. I would go back to try other dishes. The only complaint I have is the food preparation. The kitchen seemed to off with its timing. Once we placed our order, it took at least 15 minutes to get the caesar salad. Once we finished our salad, it took another 20 minutes to get the entrees. The food staff noticed this delay and provided us with complimentary desserts - the bread pudding and flourless chocolate cake. Both we also delicious. I would definitely go back to try the food again and hope that the kitchen staff was just off with their timing this one evening.

    We ate lunch at Siena during the January Napa Restaurant month. Earlier in the week we had lunch at Brix and Soleil d'Auberge. They were absolutely delicious and had excellent service. Siena was nice but it did not come close to the dining experiences that we had at the other two aforementioned restaurants. Perhaps we caught them on an off day. To their credit, everything was satisfactory but it was nothing special.

    Loved this special restaurant, quiet, intimate and very romantic. Prime rib was outstanding and done to perfection with a very unique enhanced flavor. Side dishes could of been a bit better as mashed potatoes were a bit bland and veggies were hard to identify. Service was very good and attentive, welcoming with a glass of champagne, candlelight and warm fresh bread with dripping oil.

    As a local that grew up in Napa sometimes we overlook the restaurants in hotels because we don't stay at the hotel. However, as a special treat, we recently stayed the night at the Meritage and enjoyed all the amenities. The Sienna was very good for dinner, the only downside was that it was a beautiful night and they didn't offer heaters by their outside tables. I would recommend the hotel, pool, spa, ambience, restaurants and bowling alley pub. It was a great stay-cation!

    This restaurant is supposed to be the top of the line in this extensive resort (in an industrial area) but the food was worse than a chain restaurant despite the very high price. My halibut had a dry tough crust on both sides, in chewable, thus there was very little meat to scape off this very little portion. The mashed potatoes were like glue; you get the idea. Don't go to this restaurant; there are many restaurants in the Napa valley to choose from instead.

    We took some dear friends to the Meritage Resort and went directly to the cave behind the hotel to the Trinitas Winery tasting room. After a full wine tasting, we agreed on two wines to take to the Siena Restaurant for diner. There is never any corking charge for Trinitas wines. All else was history. We had a wonderful diner with great service and of course, our wine. We left the restaurant with our wine glasses to enjoy a stroll on the property, found an outside seating area with fireplace and simply relaxed. Isn't that what it is all about?
