Italian
A polished and energetic restaurant in River North with Italian and Mediterranean influences, Siena Tavern prides itself on offering dishes made in-house, from-scratch. The menu was 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, happy hour, late night cocktails or weekend brunch, you can expect to taste the same fresh, from-scratch cooking across pastas, pizzas, mozzarellas, gelato and everything in between.

Staff was good without hovering.
I'll be honest.
The prices are a bit steep for portion size.
Appetizers feed 2.
Pizzas are the perfect appetizer for 3 or 4.
Not many vegetarian or vegan options.
We highly recommend the lamb. By far one of the best that we ever had.
About $75 a person without drinks.

Inside was pretty close so we opted for outside. Lots of traffic, noise, sidewalk construction. Not very attractive, but a lot of downtown dining is that way everywhere!

The chef special where they chose the 4 courses and dessert was spectacular and really fun. Like 5 wonderful surprise gifts. Great wine selection ! Only negative was extremely loud with pulsating bass that made conversation difficult. Diners were yelling to speak.

The food was delicious.
My parents are not huge on city restaurants, but were very impressed by the quality, timing, and service they had at Siena Tavern. We had previously dined at Bar Siena in West Loop, where they also enjoyed their meal. The group is extraordinary.

The experience stated our great with attentive service and great food with special friends. I had chosen Siena Tavern since it’s one my favorites. Our friend group had a lot of catching up to do and we were celebrating 2 birthdays. I was unaware that a DJ shows up at 8pm. Great music but the volume doubles. Being in a great corner booth the speaker started to blast and conversation was over. I left a little embarrassed that I had chosen this restaurant for our gathering. My friends had never been there.

Creative menu with amazing food. The server was very knowledgeable. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the prosciutto & watermelon appetizer was a light and flavorful way to start. Very busy on a Saturday night but the restaurant was very accommodating when we had to adjust our reservation by 30 minutes (earlier). Will absolutely return!

Our waiter, from Oklahoma, and I apologize I can't remember his name, was outstanding. We had the tasting menu and everything was perfect. Burrata and Waygu Meatball were great starters and the gnocchi was fantastic. By the time the Brick Chicken came out, we were full. Hard to pick a favorite and it was a well balanced offering. Dessert was the right portion size and we will definitely come back.

Delicious pizza and absolutely fantastic service. The service provided by our waiter was really nice and we really enjoyed it. On top of this, the pizza was as fresh as can be and had an incredible taste to it. I will definitely be back.

We went for dessert. Got the Chocolate gelato cake. It was good, but there was an underlying salty taste that we couldn't shake.

Was really disappointed with this place. We went on a recommendation and reviews, but the place was so loud we could barely hear ourselves talk and the food was terrible. I had a pasta dish that was so salty it was inedible. My dining companion had the same experience with a different dish. The waiter was very apologetic and efficient, but we left hungry and disappointed. Would not recommend--especially given how many options there are to choose from in the city.

Food, wine and service were amazing! I can not say enough good things about Siena Tavern. We frequently dine there and have never had a bad experience. We had Kara for our server on this occasion. She’s was very knowledgeable on the food and wine menu with great recommendations. Also, very attentive and overall fantastic! Highly recommended!
