We ate outside in their sidewalk shelter and felt adequately separated from other diners. Service was excellent although dessert was a little slow in arriving but the banana bread pudding was worth the wait. Food was excellent!

The food was fantastic and the restaurant is quite lovely. We were not rushed nor did we feel the slightest bit uncomfortable as all the tables were socially distanced . The wait staff was very attentive. I would go back there in a heartbeat!

In June of 2021, I brought and treated my wife and myself for dinner at the Siena Cafe.

We were warmly welcomed by the restaurant’s staff and wonderfully treated by our waitress.

Both my wife and I very much enjoyed our meals and we definitely appreciated the COVID safety protocols carried out by the restaurant’s staff, such as the social distancing of guests and the wearing of masks by the restaurant’s staff.

Both my wife and I highly recommend for everyone to visit this wonderful cuisine!!!

Overall it was a good experience but the service was very uneven. Only half of our appetizer plates had been cleared when our entrees were served. A busboy reached across the plate of someone who was eating to take away a dish. It took a very long time for dessert and coffee to be served as well.

That being said, the food was delicious. The portions were generous and we all enjoyed our meals. The only miss were the cannolis - they were dry and half-filled.

Service was horrible. They did not write our order down and got everything wrong. The waitress was pushy and very rude. Stay away from this place. The guys in the kitchen were smoking pot and the place reeked.

We found Siena Cafe to be as wonderful as always, and as always it lived up to its quality over time. One of us often buys an entree or two to take home for the week!

We ordered 2 starters and 2 entrees with wine.

Caesar-Kale salad- Average; needed more dressing and vinegar, as it needed a balance of tartness.

Salmon tartare- came on a bed of mushed-up guacamole; did not look or taste fresh (we came on Labor Day weekend)

Pasta with Mushrooms-best dish of our dinner, but needed more seasoning. Pasta appeared home-made and was properly served al dents.

Salmon- ordered Med-rare; came out well-done. They kindly RE-did the order; it also was overdone and tasteless..

Wine- the super Tuscan...not so good!

The restaurant did a very nice job of the new outdoor area, complete with living plants and dividers. Really liked this!

Stick to their home-made pastas and you’ll be happy!

Service was terrible - had to wait forever to order, one order didn’t come and they didn’t go check on it for a long time even though we told them. The lox was very poor. Avocado toast wasn’t toasted.

Service was slow but everything was good for the most part! The sangria tasted like straight wine rather than sangria- but for the bottomless brunch not a bad price/ deal at all!!! Nice atmosphere as well.

I think the waitress forgot to put our order in. After over an hour without food we were not happy. Our waitress would walk by the table and not look at us.
So very disappointed!

Draft beers taste so much better here for some reason! Food was good , I didn't realize the shrimp scampi did not come with pasta, it was just okay. The black fettuccine was very good. I will definitely be back to try other dishes.

We have been to Siena Cafe three weeks in a row now and it’s quickly becoming our go-to for Sunday brunch. Their bottomless brunch is the best deal in the city. It is very family friendly. And the food is great. We plan to go back many more times
