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.

Came here for a friend’s birthday without knowing that they charge $25 for a cake fee lol Our server just told us that there would be a fee but he didn’t tell us how much. Most restaurants don’t charge more than $15 so we were surprised when we got the bill. Fortunately we were able to talk to the manager and got it waived but why charge it at the first place if you can waive it...??
The food portion is small and the taste is ok.

We sat near the front door at I think the first booth there and the server was fantastic - knowledgeable without having to look at the menu, passionate, good recommendations, and attentive; perfect. Blond, tattoo on inside of left write. Give her a raise.

This place is Amazing, from the time we Did Valet to when we were seated was all professional. Our waiter Mike was very awesome. And his knowledge of food and drinks was at his expertise.

Enjoyed the experience although we had to sit in the back section. Awful, awful place is sit compared to the rest of the tables. Definitely killed the vibe and energy of the place....because there is none back there. Way too isolated.

Stop sitting people back there!

Siena Tavern is a great modern Italian spot located in the heart of restaurant alley in Chicago. Although it is very busy area the valet services are top notch and highly recommended. We started the meal with the waygu meatball and the grilled octopus. Both were amazing and the waygu meatball was covered in cheese and their heavy meat sauce complementing the red wine selection. The grilled octopus although small was delicious served with a giardiniera that was unexpected but complemented the dish well. I got the broiled salmon which was good but not mind blowing. However, My GF dish was the most amazing pasta I have ever had. The black squid ink and lobster pasta is served with a heavy cream sauce and is worth every calorie. We finished the meal with the dark chocolate gelato cake that was heavenly. All in all come in give this iron chef restaurant a shot but do not try to be healthy with it. Get the cake, pasta and waygu meatball.

Honestly the worst experience in service I have ever had. My date and I went for a Valentine’s Day date and the waiter could not have been more rude. Not only was he disrespectful but he got our drink orders wrong multiple times and when we corrected him he made disrespectful comments geared toward women. Absolutely disgusting and disrespectful service. We will never go back and make sure others avoid this horrid service at all costs.

Our wait person was very accommodating regarding menu selections. Butternut squash pasta dish was lovely and I would have it again. My dining companion enjoyed her Margarita pizza. We were completely unrushed which was most appreciated

Service has been a little uneven that last couple of visits. Had to ask for a restaurant week menu, was only given one menu (there were 5 of us) and it was for brunch only, even though they were serving brunch and lunch at the time. Felt like food runners/bus people gave us the majority of the service.

Lunch was very good and enjoyable. I didn't like our seating placement though. They also kept on trying to seat someone next to us where there was a joint in the seat - not a good placement.

The minestrone was superb. I went with the cauliflower risotto. Not my best choice, so I think it’s one me. My wife always gets the spaghetti; we both agreed it didn’t taste like it normally did. Not any lemon flavor unfortunately, and it tasted garlicky. Attentive waitress, good time. Surprisingly quiet on a Saturday night.

I’ve dined here several times. I think this was my least favorite experience. The meatball appetizer was not very hot. Our entrees come out too soon, while we were still eating our appetizer. We had the restaurant week menu which was a good deal.

Great birthday celebration. Party of 7 sat comfortably in an upper half booth/table. Service was exceptional. A bit loud from the booth next to us but not obnoxious..just having fun.

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 🙌🏽
