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.

Our sever Adrian was wonderful. He was attentive, made great recommendations, we never felt rushed while we ordered and overall pleasant and friendly. The manager also stopped by to check on our table and kindly provided gluten free bread to accompany an appetizer once he learned of an allergy, which we failed to make note of when ordering. Overall, great food and great service!

We loved ... CHITARRA "CACIO E PEPE”
Pecorino, black pepper, belper knolle cheese...

We will definitely order again when we return.
The young lady who showed us to our table found us a remote area of the restaurant (too cold to eat outdoors...this was our first trip to Chicago since last April, still a little gun-shy, despite double masking) and we were right next to the restaurant speakers...she nicely turned it down a bit.

A very good restaurant in many ways.
We will be back!

Siena Tavern created a nice outdoor space in the middle of February for us to enjoy a great meal with COVID safety measures in place. The coccoli appetizer is AMAZING. Would get that 100 more times. The pizza and the pasta were fresh and yummy--and big portions!

Would definitely dine here again! We made our reservation fairly last minute, and despite them being busy, they were able to get us in and serve us in a very timely manner. Kind staff, and overall, great service and food!

I've dined at Siena Tavern multiple times and this time was a little off. I asked for a little extra fried sage to add to my Butternut Squash Brown Butter Pasta (which was amazing) and the sage never materialized.

And then someone at our table ordered a cappuccino to go with dessert at the same time others ordered cokes and the cappuccino never arrived. When we got the check, we were charged for the cappuccino and had to have it removed.

It was a busy, but no busier than other times I've been there when service has been 110%.

I'm not sure what was going on this time to have these misses happen.

I love Siena Tavern and everything about the restaurant. Just a little disappointed with these minor misses.

Food was great but service was terrible. I completely understand it was busy but our waiter gave us such bad attitude the whole time. We ordered a Margherita pizza with pepperoni. They brought the pizza and everyone in the table got a piece and we knew it was just a pepperoni pizza. I told our waiter are you sure this is a Margherita pizza? He said "yes it is, according to you what do you think is missing?? I said, the main ingredients: the tomatoes and the basil. He said is there but we couldn't see it because is dark and they way the put cheese in the pizza. Haha we were 6 ppl in our table and we all decided to look for it and not even one piece of basil. This place is not cheap so very disappointing that we were treated like he was doing us a favor.

I was a little skeptical about this place, after calling to make reservations and then trying to change the reservation I was told I didn’t have one. Had to change plans, we ended up coming here for after dinner drinks/dessert because of that. I was put on hold 3 times and everyone over the phone was super rude. But once there, our server was great! Great atmosphere and the chocolate cake was delicious!

Food was terrific per usual.Service was stellar and genuine per usual. But there’s no way they were operating at 40%. We were at a table in the bar area. Every table was full, as was every seat at the bar. (I can’t speak for the main dining room). It didn’t feel as safe as I would have liked it to feel.

Mickey is a legendary man. Thank you Mickey for covering our Valentine’s dinner after the 4th course took too long. You didn’t have to, but it was a highly honorable and more than professional way of dealing with an issue like that.
