We've visited Siena 3 times in the last month. Obviously we like it if we keep coming back! Brought family and friends and everyone was happy. Celebrated 2 birthdays here with them and it was great for a small group. Some of our favorites are the calamari, the tri color salad, the lobster special on Mondays, the squid ink pasta and the spaghetti meatballs. They also have gluten free and low carb options so perfect for everyone. Wednesdays wine specials are also a good deal. Will come back again soon! Oh and the flour less chocolate cake is awesome!

I love Siena and will keep going back—it’s a lovely, comfortable spot and the food is great. Service tends to be spotty—sometimes great, but occasionally you get long lags between courses. If they could fix service issues then I’d give it five stars. I’ll remain loyal because there’s still much to appreciate here!

This day was a good day. Monday they have a lobster special for $18.95. Except that 3 Monday's ago they didn't plan well for it, and the lobster was gone BEFORE 7pm!!! A few days later, we went for just a drink and a bite at the bar, and the female bartenders were extremely nasty and rude. So, this was the best out of 3 visits, and this was a wonderful dinner meeting/date. However, 1 out of 3 is not amazing and I would give it a 3 out of 5 for that reason.

The service needs to improve. Our water glasses were constantly empty. The waitress took away our sharing plates before appetizers arrived and then we didn't have plates for 5 mins while food was on the table. The food was great but the service all around was not. Additionally, my pasta came out with the wrong type of noodle. I didn't complain, but the bill confirmed it was wrong. Still was very good, just not correct.

The food can be a little inconsistent in temperature including side dishes. Sometimes the food is served differently and vegetables could be hotter.

Bad service. The waiter forgot to bring us water. The starter we ordered for the table was forgotten too and was brought out with the main dishes after we reminded them. The food was decent. The bruschetta was the best and the steak was the worst. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go back here.

The lobster special at Siena Cafe is a great deal, but we're pretty sure the lobster is a frozen product.

Restaurant this time was a bit noisy unlike our previous visit when it was very quiet. The menu is limited but the food they serve is good. I would say the quality of the food is good. It is well prepared and more than adequate with good sized portions. Flavor and variety is not as memorable as other Italian restaurants of similar quality and cost

We had high hopes for this cute neighborhood spot. The cocktails and appetizers were good but the entree’s were just average. This place is begging for so much more.

Service was slow with a mostly empty restaurant. Food was not hot. Indicated to server we were on a tight schedule and that seems to have been dismissed. Enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

Food was really great. Went there for a celebratory lunch after my daughter’s college graduation. We were a party of 5. Excellent service - Mary was our server. Always refilling our water glasses and checking on our food. Grilled Salmon, Gnocchi with Pesto Sauce, Seafood Risotto and Chicken Parmigiana were our entrees and delish. Very special. All of the Desserts were fabulous - Mini Cannolis, Apple Bread Pudding and Cheesecake.

Our family loves going to Siena Cafe! My mom loves the seafood risotto and my kids love the ravioli with the lobster sauce. It doesn’t matter what we order, it never disappoints. My all time favorite is the Campanelle Mac and cheese with Lobster. You will not be disappointed by this place!

Siena is consistently good! We are locals and dine there at least 3x a month. My children are picky eaters but love their Lobster Mac and Cheese and chicken Parmesan! Service is always on point too! We’ve had large family gatherings there for birthdays as well!

Drinking glasses were dirty - was brought a water glass still covered in salt from a Margarita, the second had seeds in it, and the third covered in grime. Eggs had shells in them.

We had a lovely dinner here 2 nights before. We were so excited to try brunch.
The fact that we were the only customers at 11:30 on a Sunday, should have been very telling. I ordered Eggs Benedict on a biscuit with salad. No biscuit . It was served on a cold hard English muffin that was hard to cut. My salad was undressed, tasteless greens with chopped tomatoes that included brown stems.

My husband ordered blueberry basil pancakes with sausage. They came with blueberry syrup. He asked to have maple syrup. The waiter brought both so he could try them. The blueberry “syrup” was smashed fruit in a cup and the maple “syrup” was not syrup at all. It was glops of something that resembled honey but wasn’t. It was like old syrup that no longer had the consistency of syrup and tasted horrible. He had to use a knife to spread the maple glop on to his pancakes. The pancakes were equally as bad as they were dense and undercooked (though overcooked on one side) My husband sent them back. He’s never sent food back in the 20 years we’ve been together! He order the chicken sandwich with salad. Rubbery, thin piece of chicken that seemed to be microwaved , no sauce, tomato, lettuce and undercooked turkey bacon! He also had the same tasteless salad. The waiter seemed put out and upset. Never apologized or even offered us a second cup of coffee.

Though we had a lovely dinner 2 nights before, not sure we will risk coming back. So many reviews with inconsistent food and service.

With so many great restaurants to choose from, probably won’t go back.

This was a last minute reservation for 6 people. The table was ready when we arrived and the service and food were excellent. It had received good reviews from other Open Table diners and we thought it was excellent also.

Among other things, we do love the lobster special on Monday nights. Lobster comes with 1 side. The burrata and fig appetizer is delicious. They had a coconut shrimp with a sweet chili sauce dip appetizer special that was very tasty. Note, If you want to get in on the lobster special you have to get there early because they run out.
