We had a great brunch at Siena. One of my friends is pregnant and couldn't participate in the bottomless brunch. The waiter made her a sparkling orange juice and then a sparkling strawberry juice to include her - it was very sweet.

Loved our experience. We went for the two-for-one small plates and had an amazing meal! We ordered six plates for three: mussels (great), gnocchi (fantastic), lamb chops (best ever), octopus (superb), olives (huge), carpaccio (melt in your mouth). Highly recommended.

Had an intimate dinner here and there were just a few red flags. One server working the entire floor is not enough (maybe manager should jump in and take tables if its a labor thing). Therefore, waiting long periods of time to get an additional drink or a clean napkin is a result of not properly being staffed. Tables are not reset between courses nor is the table crumbed. My dinner came out cold and pasta tasted frozen I ordered the (Potato Gnocchi Braised Short Rib Ragu). When the mains came out busser's noticed dirty dishes still on the table and empty wine glasses then removed it. Empty wine glasses should be refilled or removed immediately. Also, did not have table settings to eat my dinner with when my mains arrived. Just needs management, leadership and steps of service put in place.

We arrived one hour into the lobster special night, yet they were out of lobster. the server told us the seafood fra diavolo was a little spicy, it was very spicy (and i like spicy). The check was incorrect. We have been to Siena before and like it, but this was not a great experience.

Great neighbourhood restaurant. Everything superb except the noise level can get pretty high and you find yourself shouting to be heard by your table mates.

We’ve been coming here since it opened and the food is always delicious! The Lobster Ravioli is highly recommended. I also love the risotto!

Brunch very noisy and crowded. Slow service. Ok food. If you don’t want bottomless brunch drinks, it’s not really a pleasant experience.. much much too noisy.

We have been here before and the food has always been okay for a local restaurant. But this past Saturday night, the food was excellent. There were six of us, and everyone’s food came out exactly as we had hoped.

Good for Dinner (Pasta, Wine, Ambiance); Skip for Brunch. 3/5 Stars.
Went @ 12PM on a Sunday; Was seated in the front by window vs dining room.
Service: Our server was either new and not trained or didn't know what was going on. We think he meant well, but was very quiet, didn't know the menu at all, couldn't recommend any dishes, told us he never tried any of the food, and didn't check on us much at all except when we were almost done eating (to refill mimosas). We had to wave him down when we needed anything.
Brunch Burger: they forgot the egg, brought it out on a plate after and we had to add it to the burger; burger was overcooked (medium well instead of medium rare); fries were cold and not salted (and we couldn't flag down our waiter post egg-delivery to ask for S&P).
Fontina Omelette: Good flavor and fillings, side of potatoes were good but wish there were more - If you order something, go for this.
Bottomless Brunch Overall: The Deal Includes: 1 Main + 1 Side, Plus Unlimited Mimosa, Rossini, Sangria, Bloody Mary Coffee & Soda for 90 Min. However, if your item on the menu already comes with potatos, salad or fries, that IS THE SIDE. Not a dealbreaker, but this should be a bit more distinct. Mimosas were pretty good
Verdict: Go if you want bottomless Mimosas for $30 but don't expect great service or the best food. I've been for Dinner 2x and had much better experiences.

The servers work very hard, but the restaurant appears to be understaffed. Additionally, the manager seems clueless and never checks in with guests. The food is very good, with generous portions, at a reasonable prices. They also have some very nice wines by the glass.

Enjoyable Italian dining. Food was delicious. Wednesday night was 1/2 price on bottles of wine. Service was excellent. There was pleasant music, but really loud. We asked that it be turned down a bit. They did. Our reservation was early. By the time we left it was filled up. We all agreed we'd come back.

Thankful to have this small elegant dining option in our neighborhood, where you don’t feel like your sitting with the party next to you.

Great night. We went for NYE and had a party of 8. We sat in the bar and had drinks apps and dinner. It is a festive, funky environment. The decor is both warm and intimate and at the same time fun. The food was awesome!
