Bar Siena, the sister venue to River North's Siena Tavern, offers a slightly smaller menu inspired by expansive Italian street food such as antipasti, pasta, and pizza. Overseen by partner and Top Chef, Fabio Viviani, the menu focuses on Cicchetti style cuisine, with dishes served as they're prepared and are perfect for sharing.

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 simple meal of calamari. It was the best I’ve had. Very flavorful, slightly spicy and perfectly cooked. I’m already planning to go back.

The night was incredible! The hostess were very professional and helpful! Koti the hostess was amazing and did a very good job at checking on my table and going above and beyond! Also Joshua the chef was amazing! We celebrated a birthday and he came and ask permission on cutting the cake for us he was super friendly and had a good attitude while working and letting us enjoy the birthday! Also we like to thank Dan for being a good manger of his establishment!

We ate inside, upstairs. The booths next to us had a large party split between the two large booths. The people in this party would stand and congregate/socialize in the area right next to our table without their masks, within 3-5ft of us eating. The hostess that sat us told them to either put their masks on or sit down but they were back to standing as soon as she left. Dozens of other staff members walked right past this without correcting them. It made it difficult to enjoy our meal.

Overall great experience! I took my parents who were in visiting for the weekend and enjoy a lively scene but good food - sometimes hard to find! We had a phenomenal seat on the second floor by the window so we could see all that was going on outside. Maggie, our waitress, was phenomenal. So conversational and on top of her game! One of our dishes was not up to par, but the manager handled the situation very well. And all other food was fantastic. We had the burrata, meatballs (omg), and the spicy pepperoni pizza. Would absolutely go back!

The service and ambiance was what we expected for a restaurant in the food district. Even during a pandemic, the wait staff is not supposed to beg for tips. A tip was left, sorry it is not the percentage you were looking for. The service was average and the tip was too.

During corona-virus, we ate outside. Food and wine were both delicious/fabulous. The ladies at the front desk overseeing those with reservations/walk-ins were dim bulbs - had very little sorted in the way of smooth process/knowing what they were doing. Otherwise, a terrific lunch.
