Italian
A polished and energetic restaurant with Italian and Mediterranean cuisine curated by Dineamic Hospitality's Chef/Partner, Fabio Viviani, also commonly known for his Celebrity Chef accolade as Bravo's "Top Chef Fan Favorite." The décor reflects a hybrid of a rustic Italian market, a fine dining restaurant and a modern, industrial tavern, bridging old world comfort and hospitality with a contemporary menu and design. When setting foot into this 10,000-square-foot eatery for lunch, dinner, late night cocktails or weekend brunch, you can expect to taste the same "from-scratch" Italian cooking fundamentals in pastas, pizzas, mozzarellas, gelato and everything between.

Waitstaff was great and food was good. Was disappointed that accommodations were not honored despite a call in advance with an accessibility need for someone in our party.

Parents were celebrating husband's day and we got John, the best server I've had there.
The kitchen made a mistake and brought us the bruchetta. We hadn't ordered it and we were so thankful that they gave it to us when no one else claimed it. I'll absolutely have it again and will recommend it to anyone 🙌🏽

Overall, my family and I loved this place. Both the appetizers and main menu choices were outstanding. Even the vegetarian in our family was very impressed with the non-carnivorous food offerings.The wait staff was attendant, Knowledgeable, and welcoming. The cocktail menu was nothing short of amazing. I have a recommend the number five! About the only downside was quite a high noise level. I would definitely return to this place to sample more of their diverse and appetizing menu offerings.

Absolutely fantastic meal and dining experience. Wow!
Service was just so so good. We waited just a bit for the server to come to the table, but it was fine bc he was so attentive and he apologized. He was handling a whole private room by himself and you wouldn’t have known it. His service was above par and he was wonderful!!
Food was delicious. We were blown away by the burnt pepperoni pizza and already planning another trip to Chicago to get it again!
Atmosphere and vibe of the restaurant is perfect. We will be back, for sure!

Always a go to for location food service and atmosphere. It’s been there a long time for a reason.
Sit in the bar for more more casual dining.

The food was outstanding. The cace di peppi was the best in the city and the octopus was second to none. Our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive without hovering. Wonderful experience.

Service was quick, food was tasty and it was a cozy dinning experience on a snowy winter Chicago evening. They were also extremely accommodating to my sensitive dairy allergy, which I always have the utmost appreciation for.

We ate here prior to attending the theatre. The food was delicious. If you enjoy seafood, I would highly recommend the octopus appetizer. It was the best we ever had. Also the scallops were done to perfection. Nicely carmelized, flavorful and very tender. My husband the their signature chicken dish and he was not disappointed. I have recommended this restaurant and would return.

Siena Tavern offers a nice, varied menu, excellent food, attentive service, and a friendly, vivacious atmosphere. The meatball appetizer was terrific, as were the Kale Caesar and Burrata salads. The grilled octopus appetizer, as a main with one of the salads, was plenty for someone with a moderate appetite. The Chicken Diavolo and Orrichiette mains also were large portions and very tasty. The donuts for dessert were spectacular (and very, very big), and the selection of ice creams also was very satisfying. We will go back again.

Initially, no one came to the table for 15 minutes or so. A manager came by and asked if everything was ok and we let her know what was going on. She covered the first round and sent out someone to discuss the menu with us. Went with the master chef dish, best chicken I have ever had, and the experience went from not so good to great. It was also our anniversary so we ordered the flight of ice cream and they comped it on the house. Turned a bad night into a great one, well done and great job by the staff. Will definitely be back.

We ordered from the regular brunch menu. My friend's breakfast skillet was full of cheese and tomatoes..not great at all! My breakfast sandwich was not that great either. The description said it comes with sticky potatoes. I didn't expect it to be all covered with cheese again. Overall, not great food and not high value for money. Ambiance is good and have heard their lunch is pretty good.

Sat in the bar with a friend for lunch. Abby was our server and she was very attentive. I have only been to the restaurant once before and it was the first time for my friend. She gave a little background information about the restaurant and the chef which I liked. We asked her for sone recommendations and we ordered what she suggested. Her suggestions were awesome and number of dishes perfect for our appetite. I would definitely recommend and I plan to go back again.

We made reservations for New Years a month in advance for 10pm and they didn’t seat us for 40 minutes and when we finally got seated they seated us in the bar. The reason being is because the earlier tables wouldn’t get up until New Years but I would think if someone had an earlier reservation the managers shouldn’t allow the tables to sit until 12 since other people have later reservations. Overall didn’t expect to spend my New Years at their bar.

Made a reservation over a month in advance and was placed in the overflow area even though we specifically asked to be placed in the main dining area. The waitress we had was nice but was overrun. Hard to believe they were that short staffed for New Year’s Eve. Good food quality but poor overall experience that could have been easily remedied.

Food is always good. Arrived early and was second couple in. First couple placed by the windows and we were put at highboy table looking at the kitchen. I love the food but the staff seems inexperienced and we probably would have stayed longer and spent more If there was something to look at.

Second time visiting here. First experience was exceptional, this one was average at best. Felt like the waiter wasn’t too excited to work, or maybe he had too many tables. Felt very rushed even though we indicated we weren’t in any. Food was ok, but just nothing too special this time. May give it another try, but not for awhile.

We’ve been to Sienna Restaurant before and had great experiences. This time however was not so great. The soup we ordered arrived cold like it had been sitting out for a half hour before they served it to us. We had it sent back to get warmed up. It took about 15 minutes to get our warmed up soup. It took about another 20 minutes after we finished our soup and salads to get our main course. We split a $62 bone in ribeye steak which we asked to be cooked medium well. The steak arrived rare and grizzly. We each picked around the steak to eat any edible parts. We chose not to send it back because of our previous experience with the soup taking too long.
