What Insiders Are Saying
Bar Siena is great for a fun gathering in the West Loop. Go heavy on the pizza and pastas. And drinks. You're going to want those too.
Really enjoyed it.
Food was very good! Flavor, color and aroma were on the mark.
Bar Siena is a Chicago staple. A West Loop must. Great for brunch or dinner. Plus the bombolini for dessert is out of this world. You honestly can’t go wrong.
Loved the fig & prosciutto pizza, everything was so good and the service to match!
The food was fantastic. Great patio/outdoor seating and the service was great.
There were 3 couples all together. We all split a bunch a plates and everything we tried was awesome. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and gave us some great recommendations. Super trendy, super cute.
The brunch was everything I thought it would be and more. The waffles with the bananas and nuttella butter was seriously amazing. Also I highly recommend the focaccia. I wanted to order more, however we will be stopping here again the next time we are in Chicago!!
This bar was recommended to me by a friend and it was well worth the visit. The service was great, and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and all of its offerings. The cocktail list was creative and had enough options to not be overwhelming. The music selection was great and outside seating was not cramped and uncomfortable like in some places.
We were very disappointed as we had heard great stuff about this restaurant but most of the food was bland and had no taste. The hummus was spread so thin on the plate I could barely scoop it up to put some on my plate and it had very little taste. The wings had no flavor and the meatballs also had barely any sauce and again very bland. The pizza was nothing special and the pasta again had no taste. It is like the chef forgot to season all the food. It was just bizarre!!! I even had to ask them to bring salt to the table. The one thing that did have taste was the chopped salad and it was good and we did like the sangria and the coffee drink. We really feel ripped off and not worth shlepping in from the city for.
Food was delicious and our server was spot on. The Short Rib Lasagna was amazing. The Burrata Appetizer was a perfect balance of creamy, sweet and crunchy. We had a great time and will definitely be back!
Love this place. I take all my friends to Bar Siena. Their wedge salad and wild mushroom pizza is the best. I also recommend their octopus.
Went there for a co-worker's going away lunch. Food was great and our service was excellent.
Great food again! Matt was a superb server! On point and funny!
Very enjoyable lunch place--and fun for evenings after work at the bar or for dinner. Fairly noisy, but excellent decor and very good service. Not inexpensive, but food was delicious.
Food was average. Service was kinda slow. Interesting space.
The service was amazing and the food was very tasty. My only complaint is that they don't serve bread
I've eaten here many times - and it never, ever disappoints!
Wonderful food, great service on Bar Siena's patio on a summer day...
Visited Bar Sienna for a birthday dinner. The atmosphere is AMAZING, as well as the food and the service! I’ve never had a waiter so passionate and in love with the menu. He gave great recommendations and never skipped a beat!
We sat outside which helped with the temperature (AC was blasting inside) and noise level (music was loud). This made for a very pleasant experience. Highly recommend the cheesy bread and the grilled calamari.
We arrived a bit late due to traffic but called to give them a heads up. We had theater tickets so we were worried about timing. Not to worry. We ordered four main courses to share along with a salad. They say that everything is made fresh to order. Impossible. Our mains came out in fewer than 5 minutes and all were ice cold, not even luke warm. After finishing the mains, they brought the salad. To add insult to injury, it was freezing with a blower right above our table. But at least it was expensive. Family joke. We love Siena Tavern and were looking forward to the evening. Never again. We were out in 40 minutes and arrived early for theater. Huge disappointment.
Quite a few dinner options, the burrata and pizza are delicious - cocktails were a little pricy but then again it’s Chicago. Would definitely go back!
Its a family favorite every time I come into town. Amazing food and beautiful ambiance.
The food here never disappoints. For brunch I recommend the puff pancake, the omelette, avocado toast and the Parmesan fries. The donuts are amazing as well as their fresh juices. My favorite is the carrot, ginger fennel. If you go early there is less of a wait but I always prefer to make a reservation because I’m guaranteed to be seated within 5 minutes of arriving. This place is definitely a winner!
We were celebrating our dog’s 10th birthday since they offer a dog menu on the patio. The food was absolutely delicious. Our server was fantastic and gave us great menu recommendations as it was our first time dining there. He also put a candle in our dog’s woof cream and doughnut! It was incredibly thoughtful. Overall, a great experience and we’ll definitely be back!
Awesome atmosphere. Great food and drinks. But we made a reservation for 2 at 7:30 and never actually sat at a table. We ended up sitting at the bar for drinks to wait for our table and at 8:40 got up to see if it was ready. It wasn't. We ate at the bar. Which was fine--I would have loved to sit on the awesome patio. But reservations really don't matter here. It's first come first serve anyway.
Megan W. was fabulous! She picked out all of our food, we left SO HAPPY! I've told everyone I know about the place. :)
So nice we came back twice! My daughter and I had dinner here on the terrace, gorgeous night, food was excellent!!!!! I had the lobster agnoletti and my daughter had the black truffle and asparagus risotto. Clean plates all around. Two days later a good friend and I could not find anywhere to eat a late lunch brunch that wasn't a huge wait so we ubered over and stayed for 2 hours eating our way through, pizza's , salads - so good!!!!! and I can't even remember what. We ended with Bombolini's which I will say were not as good as the ones I had with my daughter. There was barely any sugar on the outside so it was very dough-y. Just a little inconsistent there and the service. Not so great service on the terrace ( tall blonde - nice , but maybe should be doing something different) although the bus boys are the best I have ever seen anywhere!!!! Our server inside at lunch petite brunette was awesome. GO!
We showed up 10 minutes early for our 9:15am reservation. Even though the door was opened, it didn't seem they were quite ready for guests and we waited a little over 5 minutes to be seated. Once we were seated the service was great and attentive. The food was really delicious and a unique twist on brunch. I had the smoked salmon benedict and a side of waffle hash browns, my husband had the bombo breakfast sandwich and we were both pleasantly surprised.
I would highly recommend anyone who is trying this place for the first time to get the foccacia bread. By far one of the best dishes I have ever had in my entire life.
Food was delicious. We ordered a variety of dishes. All amazing. Exceptional service. Our waiter was charming, informative, and efficient. GREAT beverages, from wine to exceptional cocktails. We'll be back. Loved it!
It wasn’t a busy day and hour but service was horrible. I gave this restaurant so many chances but I think I’m done.
Great shareable food. Service was great.
Enjoyed the food and the service was excellent, the server made all the difference. Loved the upstairs seating and the view it provided of the street for a bit of people watching. Overall a fun and casual place.
I was disappointed the waiter didn’t explain food on charcuterie tray; I had to call him back to ask what things were. I also didn’t appreciate drinks served in plastic zip bags. They were hard to hold and not environmentally conscious. The Bechemal in the short rib lasagne was not flavorfull (needed nutmeg)
This is my first time and last! The appetizers were good! My second drink was off I asked about it and the services said she ordered it but never took the time to check it out! I ordered a cavtinni pesto and it was so over dressed it was horrible! Again the waitress was like well do you want me to take it off?? Really? If you were a good restaurant you wouldn’t have asked the customer that!
We we looking forward to eating here but very disappointed and will not return!!
We had dinner here on Saturday night before a show at City Winery. There were some hits and misses. I think next time I would order the pizza as I understand that is what they are known for. We had the meatballs and the octopus for starters. The meatballs were great! The octopus was a bit bland and chewy, rather than tender. I had the Lobster Agnolotti, which was okay. My boyfriend had the short rib lasagna and that was amazing, but very filling. I'll definitely give it another try.
The pizza oven was broken and there was a bug in the food. Not a good experience and they should have taken care of the check
Really disappointing night!
