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.

The start was the most bizarre hostess experience. We had a 5:15 reservation. Although we got there on time, the hostess told us there were two parties ahead of us. We did not get seated until 5:30 — 15 minutes after our reservation.

When we checked in, we asked the hostess if it was possible to sit inside and she said “of course”. When the hostess brought us to our table, she started taking us outside. We explained the other hostess said we could still sit inside and would prefer that, if possible, since it was 95 outside and had just rained.

Even though we had made a reservation a week in advance and confirmed there was indoor seating, she took us to the bar. We asked if it was possible to sit in the main dining room. She made us wait for 5 minutes and then took us to a table, I kid you not, in the bussing station. We were in this bizarre corner where the waiters were complaining about other customers and cleaning glasses for guests. It was the most uncomfortable seating I have ever had. My boyfriend wanted to ask for a new seat, but I told him it was fine (clearly the Sienna Tavern hostess team was not concerned about our experience). When the waitress could tell we were unhappy (who wouldn’t be sitting at the bussing station), she exclaimed “you want ANOTHER table? Seriously point to a table and you can sit there!” I have never had a ruder hostess.

We kept the table and had a fine evening. The waiter did bring us the wrong appetizer, but at that point we realized there was no point in trying to work with the staff for an enjoyable dinner.

Such a delicious menu, it was very hard to decide as everything sounded just wonderful. We ended up getting the crab speghetti, carbonara in a jar, and the brick chicken- we had to share our meals to let us all enjoy how amazing they each were. For dessert we did the fancy donuts- they are huge! plenty to share. A must eat place in Chicago for sure. Also our server Dylan was great.

First meal at Siena Tavern after noting how busy this place is on numerous occasions. The server recommended the spaghetti as a fav pasta dish and burnt pepperoni pizza as fav pizza. Both were excellent! Drinks were kept full throughout my time there. Will definitely return!

Waitress, maybe her name was Amber, was really great. I recommend everything I had there: espresso martini, lobster Benedict, and the French donuts. Great atmosphere. Not a single bad thing to say.

I love the food here so much, but I was disappointed in my experience on this particular day. It was my first time going for brunch and I made the reservation weeks ago. We arrived shortly after they opened and waited at least 10 minutes for a table. We were seated outside at a small table that was backed up against a post so it was difficult to pull the chair out. For having reservations so far in advance and arriving early, I was annoyed that we got such a mediocre table and had to wait as long as we did.

We were skeptical of the prices of the drinks and food on the brunch menu, but holy cow are they justified. Our food (lobster roll and bombolinis) was unforgettable. The Bloody Mary and Espresso Martini that we had were fantastic.

Also, our server was amazing. I can’t remember his name, but he’s the guy from Cleveland. He was fast, cordial, and gave us amazing service.
