I went to celebrate my birthday and the service was terrible. It took a really long time to take my drink and dinner order. I ordered the filet mignon medium and after waiting forever, it came out well done. The sever took it back and thankfully came back semi medium, still not medium but I wasn’t going to wait any longer to eat. My server never came back to fill my water or ask if I wanted another drink. Not worth the price!! Eat elsewhere!

Sat outside for a very good Mother’s Day dinner. Our dinners, crusted pork chop and blackened swordfish were very good, but not up to the usual standard. I think the kitchen was a bit overwhelmed by the number of diners.

I've been to this restaurant twice. The service is great and the food is good, however, I think the grilled teriyaki skirt steak is a little pricey for the cut of beef and the Dungeness crab cakes was a little disappointing, I guess I'm accustom to the crab cakes I've eaten on the east coast where you get larger crab cakes with chunks of crab. I will go again!

Beautiful, giant picturesque window views of the water and the Carquinez Bridge. Delicious food and impeccable service. Restaurant building is brick architecture with touch of modern industrial feel.

Mothers Day dinner with family, our first time back inside a restaurant since the pandemic started. Our waiter Bailey was great and our food was delicious. So good to be back.

It was extremely crowded which I know it was Mother’s Day weekend but every single table was occupied. My husband’s skirt steak was a little tough and he usually orders this but found the quality was not the same. My salmon dish was lukewarm. We normally have no issues but this visit was slightly off for us.

Seating/table spacing helped mute ambient noise level, good menu, good specials, pleasant atmosphere and an excellent waiter. Best fine dining in the area.

We were seated promptly at a table for two! Kristine was our server. She was excellent, gracious, accommodating, and personable! We ordered an appetizer, salads, one of the specials for dinner, lobster raviolis with shrimp! Everything was delicious!

After over a year of not dining in, this was a treat! We had a table at the window looking directly at the Strait. Our server, Bailey, was professional and respected our request to dine slowly. The food was great. We had the appetizer sampler, shared their signature cabbage/bacon/blue cheese salad. I had the special - blackened mahi mahi with spinach and mashed potatoes - delicious. My husband had his favorite pasta dish and it didn’t disappoint.
So glad Bella Siena is back!

I really love this place! The food was so good. The service was extremely slow. Our server was very sweet but I think the order did not get put in as other tables got their food who came in after ours. And it was salad which should not take an hour. But besides that the food and ambience is wonderful. I would go back again and consider this a mistake that just happens sometimes.

This was my third visit to Bella Siena and I can't wait to go back again. Their menu is varied and interesting, with everything from pasta to teriyaki steak. There's definitely something for everyone. They offer some daily specials that although I haven't tried yet, they always sound delicious. If you're interested in sampling some specialty cocktails, they've got you covered. Desserts are a winner as well. Now, for the service - I cannot say enough about the staff here. Attentive, engaging, professional, knowledgeable with that knack for knowing when to appear at your table at the right moment. I'd like to personally compliment our server, Valentino. He was a fantastic waiter and could not have been nicer. Oh...and the view! Right on the water. If you get there early, you might score a window seat!

Outdoor space is lovely although you do not want to be seated at one of the tables for two near the door. Too much traffic right next to your table and too much yelling by one of the staff - not a server but a supervisor I guess? Very annoying and distracting. Really detracted from the meal.

Love Bella Siena! It was so nice to go out for dinner instead of ordering it to go. We ordered different dishes than our usual selection and everything was just delicious! So happy we decided to try new things. Will definitely be back! (How about a little music out on the patio?)

I have been to Bella Sienna a handful of times and have never been disappointed. Two things this trip though. One please get rid of the aluminum cup my martini was served in. Awful. Two, the salmon was outstanding but the side dishes were sautéed spinach and Yukon potatoes. The salmon sat on top of only about 5 spinach leaves and a plate full of way too many potatoes. Flavors were great but would have preferred way more vegetables. Salmon is amazing.

I've never had a bad meal here and the service was WONDERFUL!! The staff took extra care of my 89 year old mom that had fallen before she got to Bella with band aids/ice and checked on her throughout the evening.

The chicken sandwich didn’t have enough chicken...the piece even didn’t cover the bread. Flavor and the grilling were good.
Service is impeccable.
Everything else was very good.

The calamari appetizer was very good as well as the cocktails. The service was attentive, however, the mushroom risotto as a main course was rather soupy and quite bland. Perhaps an off night?

My husband and I feel that Bella Siena is the top as far as restaurants go in Benicia. We do have a few very nice restaurants at about that level, but Bella Siena is more professional with their wait staff and their menu. It is probably the highest priced menu, but it is worth it because of the quality of food.

Loved the ambiance, food and service. We tried the daily special - lobster ravioli in a creamy saffron sauce, crab cake panini and the pre fix steak lunch. All of the dishes were tasty. Our server was also super nice.

Would recommend this restaurant for either indoor or outdoor dining.

Luis was outstanding!! He's normally behind the bar but today he was on table duty. My friend and I hadn't seen each other in a couple of years and he was so gracious to never rush us and we were at our table for OVER 3 HOURS!!! We're very appreciate and can't wait to return for another delicious meal with a gorgeous view!
