The two-story restaurant, spanning 8,000-square-feet, is located in the heart of restaurant row in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood. Upon entering, there is a bustling bar and on the second floor, a vibrant dining room, both connected by an arresting illuminated sculpture inspired by Siena Tavern's olive tree icon.
Bar Siena is the perfect location for weekday lunch, dinner, happy hour or weekend brunch. If you're looking for something a little sweeter, stop by Bar Siena's side-concept and walk-up window, BomboBar, located on Green Street. Grab a coffee, bomboloni, gelato or hot chocolate to go!

We had a great server, whose name I cannot remember, but she was always right there with a coffee or water refill and made some great recommendations for breakfast.
With so many brunch spots in the neighborhood it was tough to decide, but we will definitely be back!

Great food, great service!
Went here to try another Italian place for date night and it was not the best fit. Most upbeat music and bar/drinks scene. Good food though, very pleased with gnocchi and carne pizza. Willing to remake pizza when there were ingredients not listed on the menu on the pizza when delivered to the table. Overpriced wine menu, would be hesitant to go back at night time.
We had a great meal. Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive. My only complaint is that service was a bit rushed. Entrees arrived before we were finished with our appetizers which is my pet peeve. However, the short rib lasagna and lobster pasta were excellent.
The staff was excellent, and helped us with our stroller. Our server had great recommendations and and seemed very knowledgeable. Will definitely go back, and would definitely recommend!
I don't remember our server's name but he was amazing! We had a not-so-great experience there the last time we went but his service made up for it. Food was very tasty and came out rather quickly despite it being crowded.
Fun relaxing time for 5 business associates. Pretty loud but food and service was great. Will go again when in town.
I love this place. The staff is ALWAYS great! The duck Mac and cheese, short braised rib lasagna, lobster shall I go on everything is delicious.
Wonderful Sunday brunch with my daughter. We had the Mimosa Bar, Lobster Benedict, and Breakfast Pizza. Outstanding!! Service was great and the management staff was incredibly friendly. We had a great time!
It was just ok. Prefer sienna tavern much more
Always a good time. Great food, great service and great drinks. One of the best places in the area.
Bar Siena’s service was amazing. We waited under 10 minutes for our food to arrive. It was delicious. The drinks were fun and very good as well. The only drawback was how loud it was. We felt as though we were shouting across the table. Overall, it was still a very fun date night - just a little loud.
Good food but it was too loud. Impossible to have a conversation without yelling.
Great atmosphere, service was awesome.... energetic and fun. Food is delicious, prices are reasonable and I will go back regularly.
Food was wanting. I did not find anything amazing about our meal. We had the lobster tagliatelle, roasted chicken, and burrata. The burrata and the fruit preserves it was served with had a funny taste and the bread tasted a little stale and was cold. The lobster tagliatelle would have been better if the noodles weren’t horribly clumped together. The roasted chicken was bland. Service felt rushed bus boy and waitress kept trying to clear our plates that still had food on them. Would not revisit.
We had outstanding service, and the food was ok but it wasn’t anything spectacular. This place is WAY too overpriced for what we ordered. We would come back if it wasn’t so expensive. For these prices I’d rather go somewhere more upscale because that’s pretty much where the price points were set.
Service was awful. The waitress never stopped by and tried everything in her book to up-sell us on everything.
We had a great lunch. The food is awesome; service was quick and friendly; and ambiance is fun.
Went for restaurant week which had BIG tasting portions of some of the popular brunch items from the regular menu. WAS NOT disappointed, the options were tasty and filling.
We went for restaurant week brunch, was easy to make a reservation for a large group a few days ahead of time! The value was good overall, but the portion sizes between some of the restaurant week options varied widely. Our server was great, and quick with extra requests (milk for coffee, salt and pepper), and the food came out in a reasonable time. While we didn’t all partake in drinks, we were inspired to come back for a night of cocktails later!
Thanks for coming!
We had a really nice experience for brunch. The server was great and she didn’t make us feel rushed. Food was good.
Brunch was so good! Definitely planning our next visit. We went for Restaurant Week and it was a great deal, plus we got to try several dishes including avocado toast, waffle w Nutella, pancake puff, breakfast sandwich and of course their bombolinis! The only disappointment was the açaí bowl.
Good, quick eats. Nice quality. Good place to socialize with friends. I’ll go back again.
Went on a Saturday night and sat upstairs. Very loud. Great food. We had the roasted half chicken which still makes my mouth water. It had a nice kick to it. Also ordered the burrata which had some sweet added to which was okay. The meatballs are yummy! Sweet corn ravioli was okay, my dish wasn’t very warm but for leftovers it was good. Not a fan of their Cosmopolitan martini but my husband likes his old fashion.
Enjoyed being back at Bar Siena for a light, early dinner. Great service!
Food was overpriced for restaurant week. Champagne came room temperature. Slow service
Myself and my Sisters had a great time & food last night Thank you and our waiter name was Ian and he was great.....
Thanks for stopping by! We hope to see you again soon!
Staff was great. Food was good. Ambiance was upbeat.
Great restaurant week menu
Our brunch at Bar Sienna was delicious!
Our table was ready when we got to the restaurant. The waiter serving us was excellent.
We look forward to our return visit!
Chicago Restaurant Week 2020
The service was great! Unfortunately that's the best it got. Appetizers were really delicious. Then I ordered the tagliatelle carbonara. It was truly awful. It tasted sweet - almost like it had vanilla added to it! I told the waiter and he offered to get me something else but at that point I wasn't hungry any longer. He then talked to his manager and they took off a glass of wine that a friend of mine had for us. Odd choice and that was less than the meal, but at least he tried. I won't be going back for food for sure.
Really love the food and service here but the music is so loud that you have to yell at your dining companions to be heard. The sound started out at a reasonable level but they kept increasing it. Pretty annoying as talking to people is a large part of why you go out to dinner.
The lag time between ordering and receiving our food was unacceptable.
Nick was awesome!
One of my 'faves' but let me down this time. Short rib lasagna was over-cooked; They splashed some bechamel sauce on top to 'wet' it but that didn't make it any better.
Fun place to visit during Restaurant Week. We had brunch and the food was great and abundant (big portions). I ordered the avocado toast and short rib hash. My friend ordered blueberry acacia bowl and bomba sandwich. A third friend ordered the fireball pepperoni pizza (not on restaurant week menu). The food was all really tasty and the restaurant had a great vibe. Unfortunately, I think our waiter was the only waiter working that morning and we sat in a booth under a very loud speaker making it difficult to hear conversation for brunch. Still neither the slow service nor the loud music detracted from an enjoyable time.
