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.

We sat at the bar and had a lot of fun. What really made the evening nice was our bartender - her name was Ari (not sure if I am spelling it right). She was nice, friendly, attentive, etc.

I came here for a special occasion dinner and overall I had a great time. They sat us in a booth where we were able to see the outside. The waiter was very friendly and accommodating by splitting our courses. We started with a salad that had pistachios, avocado and artichokes. Then we had the lobster linguini that was amazing. Finally we ended the night with the crispy gelato cake. I definitely recommend saving room for the dessert. It was to die for.

Great food and drinks—very friendly service. Only issue was the women’s bathroom had clearly not been cleaned in some time—not what you’d expect from this place—it was completely disgusting, and we were there on a weeknight early evening.

Service was amazing. We ordered the bruschetta which was not great - bread was soggy and the parmesan crisps tasted a bit old. Everything else was a amazing 10/10 recommend the grilled octopus it’s one of my fave things on the menu.

We came after our son’s graduation so we were in a celebratory mood. The ambiance was exactly that: energetic, upbeat and fun! We ordered the tasting menu. Everything was very good, nothing is out of this world but also nothing to complain about. Our waiter, however, was the best waiter we have had in a long while. He explained every dish with perfect amount of details… he could probably tell that we are foodies and pretty good home cooks, so he elaborated on what the ingredients were and how each layer of the flavor was built. All the wait staff are perfectly attentive but not overly so. The overall experience was awesome! It was truly the great time we were hoping for, and was the perfect ending of the graduation weekend!

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.
