Food was 10/10 incredible! The meatballs omg but pretty much everything was amazing . Service 10/10. All the workers were so smiley and nice!!
It was amazing!
Wonderful food and vibe. The music was great and upbeat. Our octopus was over cooked but we are just happy to be back :)
A good place to go for the ambience and drinks - the food is ok.
Bruschetta had a nice aesthetic appearance but was very underwhelming. Priced at about $16, two small pieces of bread with topping were served. The bread was quite hard and overall taste was below expectations. The carne pizza was reasonable and about what we were expecting in overall taste and value. Drinks were not spectacular (ok). We sat in the outdoor tent which was great on a warm night and was very lively with some couples having their dogs under the tables.
Overall. a , lively place to get drinks or maybe an informal bite to eat.
Loved the space on the 2nd floor - doors open. Service was great. We were just there for a beer, but would like to go back. Menu looked good.
Great food, great staff, no complaints!!
Had a tent seat outside. I enjoyed the environment very well as it was cozy and well secluded despite being outdoors. Service was great and very caring. I wish they had a little larger of a beer selection however. No specialties or anything out of the usual ordinary.
Great experience with outstanding service, staff and overall ambiance. 10/10 would go back
Great food and service
My family went on Mother’s Day. We have been here before and all of us loved it every time. This time we were seated and greeted by our waitress and got our drinks in a timely manor but after that it all went down hill. I am not sure if Bar Sienna was short staffed or what but our waitress spent more time behind the bar doing things and walking past our table without a glance then she did making sure we had our food or needed anything. After we placed our order we got our food in a a okay amount of tjme but some of it was not early as warm as it should be. We let it go because our waitress was no place to be found. She checked on us once when all of us besides my youngest were done eating. We did not see her again for almost 30 minutes. Well I should say we could see her behind the bar a few times. Anyway we would have asked for our check and left without dessert but my girls are in love with the bomblioni and there was no denying them the reason we came. We placed our order and I waitress walked away. I had to flag her down in one of the times she just walked past our table to make sure we got our check. Suddenly she was fast and efficient with that. We sat at our table for about 50 minutes after finishing eating to the time we got our check. For all the places these days asking patrons to be fast because of limited capacity this was ridiculous. They could have practically served a whole other family in that time. Hoping it was an off day because we love Bar Sienna but not happy this time.
Our reservation was for 4:15pm but we arrived at 3:50pm. They immediately sat us down and didn’t make us wait. Our server was Aannemarie who was more than willing to take memorable photos of us. She literally moved a whole table to make sure the background looked nice. Which meant a lot to me because we decided to spend our Mother’s Day here. My mother loved it. The food was amazing. The scenery was beautiful and the music was energetic & lively.
Take the wife in for a nice Mother’s Day meal, her food was cold and didn’t taste good. Her drinks were flat. It was a less than stellar visit this go around.
We were there for Mother’s Day brunch, and it was wonderful. Everyone from our server to Dan the GM were fantastic. We loved everything, and can’t wait to go back!
Outside tent was great even on a cooler / rainy night. Inside area music sound level was so high you could not have a conversation. Outside was fine
Food and service was great. It was really really loud. To the point where we couldn't even hear each other, which is tough for dinner. It felt more like a bar.
Always a great experience. I plan to return in the coming months.
Rude hostess at the front desk, talked down to me and my daughter. Gave us tables in the wind although there was space at other tables the entire time we were eating. Waiter gave good service. Food was good, just the first impression with the lady first talking to us ruined the experience for me.
They forgot we were celebrating for a birthday even though I mentioned to the waitress and marked on open tables
The chicken sandwich and fries is really great. Waitress was attentive and friendly and on it. Hosts seemed overwhelmed but there was no line, yet they seemed to be seating walk-ins before reserved.. hmmm
I was delightfully surprised at how good the food is here! I’ve been to Bar Siena for drinks, which are also great, but food is delicious too! Would recommend the octopus, meatballs, and Brussels sprouts 🤤
The service was timely and informative. The food was delicious and fresh. Would definitely recommend to others
Great service, amazing food, creative cocktails and wonderful staff. Our server Maggie was outstanding. She explained the menu and made great cocktail and food recommendations.
I recommend sticking to pizza when ordering here. I’ve been a few times and every-time I get a pasta or entree it was just absolutely not worth the price. The potatoes au gratin were dry and unseasoned. The cacio e Pepe was hard and the noodles were clumped together. The pizza and the cocktails are delicious, but I wouldn’t return for the food most likely. I’ll stick to drinks and bar bites.
We loved the food, but wish we had chosen to sit upstairs at a table rather than the bar.
Only reason for not getting a higher review is they were out of all the cocktails I wanted by Sunday evening.
Food is amazing. Our waiter practically helped us figure out our whole meal and my drink. So the service on all ends was great too.
I always love bar Siena. However at this time my food wasn’t that good and I felt very sick afterwards
Ann Marie was fantastic
Made an outdoor reservation at 6:30. Showed up at 6:33, waited in line at the hostess stand until 6:37. Was then told they were running behind and also I was “late” for my reservation and could either have a seat at the bar or wait 30+ minutes for outside seating.
While I didn’t appreciate the hostess telling me I was late for the reservation, I said we were fine with waiting for outside seating. I did say that we really weren’t late, and only 5 minutes behind the specified reservation time. It’s pretty typical for restaurants to have a 15 minute grace period anyways. The hostess then CORRECTED me and said I was 7 minutes late and not 5... At this time I mentioned I had to wait in line for almost 5 minutes just to talk to her. We then got seated right away outside.... weird how that table appeared.
I love this restaurant! Staff is wonderful and the food is amazing.
Amazing atmosphere for a sunny day. Tried the tasting wasn’t blown away but it was an ok lunch paired with wine on a nice day!
For entrees, we ordered the Gnocchi and fish & chips. Potato skins & Parmesan fries for appetizer. No 4 drink. The sauce on the gnocchi was extremely bitter. The fish & chips was delicious. Breading was flavorful, potatoes could have used a bit more seasoning. The dipping sauce helped. Potato skins were crispy & fried beautifully but needed salt. The aioli helped as well. My drink was quite flavorless & unmemorable.
i took my bestfriend there for a birthday lunch and everything was amazing. the food was delicious & our server Alex (javier) was one of the best waiters i have ever had. he was AMAZING. 10/10 would come back again ESPECIALLY because of Alex. so helpful, informative, attentive, fun, happy, he made our lunch a GREAT experience at bar siena.
