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.
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
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!
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.
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.
Steak tasted like rubber and no flavor the sauce was nasty also. But the service was very good I ended up getting a burger wich was very good but I wanted the steak.
Our server Megan was amazing! We tried everything she recommended and were not disappointed; Thank you!
Terrible experience, food was very below average. Will not be coming back.
service was great !!!
It's a great spot with decent availability. I recommend getting a pizza and enjoying the live dj.
The branzino sucked but otherwise the food was decent. Server & managers were very unaccommodating with our group as we had one extra show up last minute and they refused to be flexible to help seat our full party even though they had the space in the tent. We even asked if they could just split the table in two which was clearly possible but they downright refused. Probably my fault for not having enough on the reso but they could have at least tried to be a little flexible when someone is about to drop $1,000 on dinner.
Experience left more to be desired and I'm disappointed because I'm a big DineAmic spender...definitely will be reconsidering after that debacle.
Nice place to have a drink, the food was okay.
What a pleasure - Chef's special with wine pairings! Epicurious.
Great place will be back
Always a great time at Bar Siena!
Food was great, lots of vegetarian options. The drinks are also great and offer all type of drinks!
Excellent food, great ambiance outdoors, and was a pretty hip crowd! We had a table on the sidewalk which was perfect since even though it was a cool evening the patio heaters more than did the job. There is also a very large tent on Randolph that holds a large number of tables. The cocktails we had were excellent, including the No5, No15, and No24! I really liked the mezcal in the No24 in particular. We ordered the octopus, the mushroom and garlic pizza, and the cacio e pepe, which were all fantastic! The octopus was slightly tough, but still very good. Will definitely return!
The service was great and the food is delicious, would definitely recommend to my friends!
Appetizer was greasy and fatty - and overall price of everything was too expensive.
Bar Siena has become our go to spot! Food is always super delicious! Top notch service, the waiters are professional and friendly.
Dinner was great. For appetizers we shared the roasted meatballs and Cesar salad. For entrees we had the cacio e Pepe with shrimp, the NY strip, and the scallops. Everything surpassed my expectations. The food was flavorful and delicious. It also came out extremely fast. The only ‘problem’ we had was we ordered the steak medium, and it came out well. We sent it back and it came back medium rare but good. We enjoyed everything and I will be back.
Very good food and service. A little noisy but not too bad.
The bruschetta we ordered was hard/stale. It also took almost a half hour to get the dish out to us. Pretty bad, especially for the price they charge for that dish.
I went here for my moms birthday brunch and we loved it the food was amazing!
The lobster roll was the best item we ordered. Very good food.
I am a big fan of their drinks and food. However, my last visit was not that great. I only ordered an appetizer, Bruschetta(to be specific) and I believe they have made some changes to the recipe. I was a little disappointed with my food. Overall, I love their food and cocktails. Would absolutely recommend it.
