    They tried to charge a 3% surcharge due to COVID. Twice (at the bar bill and then the dinner bill). Cheeky and fraudulent consumer rip off attempts. They’re vey kind about removing the charges when you question them about it but it makes you not want to support this restaurant.

    The food is good, but honestly, the restaurant was a mess. We had a reservation and it took us 20 minutes to seat us, even though the restaurant was half empty. The hostess just seemed generally confused. After our dinner was served, the server seemed to disappear. The food was very good, but not great. This place used to be a gem, but seems to be struggling at the moment

    A nice spot for Sunday brunch. It wasn't too busy and the noise level was manageable, except the music was a bit much for a Sunday morning. The short rib benedict was a huge hit at our table!

    We were seated close to a table of 12. It was very noisy and hard to carry on a conversation. The manager was very nice, but there was no other table that would have been quieter. Despite the noise level, the food, service and ambiance were great.

    Our reservation was for 5:45pm on a Saturday. At 5:50pm, they had already "ran out" of a drink, titled a "No. 1". Here are the ingredients in a No.1: -Vodka -Prosecco -Grapefruit -Lemon -Mint -Strawberry Again, its 5:45pm on a Saturday. Yet, you're already unable to make that drink the rest of the night? Not to mention, it is (quite literally) listed as the first drink on the Specialty Cocktail menu. Sure, if you run out of the No. 12 or No. 13 or can't make some fancy drink with a million ingredients then maybe that's a little understanding. But to not be able to make the No. 1? What did you run out of, Vodka? Amateur hour at Siena Tavern these days. This place used to be awesome. RIP

    Was disappointed with inconsistencies between online and in-restaurant menu for gluten free offerings. Unwilling to accommodate a gluten allergy though substitution of side dish and instead upcharged.

    4 stars for the 4-course “forget about it” tasting menu. 1) Burrata with tomato jam - nice starter, wish the jam were a little less sweet or that there was more basil oil. 2) Wagyu meatballs - very tender and flavorful. 3) Cacio e Pepe - classic and tasty. 4) Brick chicken - the star of the meal. Tender chicken with perfect potatoes - light and fluffy in the inside and crisp on the outside. Dessert was the chocolate gianduja bar, which was a nice finish. Overall a good meal. We wished we had smaller portions with the option to taste more of the menu/have more variety (two tomato-based sauces with polenta toast to start).

    I was really looking forward to eating at the Siena Tavern, but I found it to be rather ordinary. Our service was inattentive and we discovered there was a sandwich menu only when we asked why a couple of items weren’t on the menu. Nothing I tasted wowed me.

    Everything was great food wise. We ordered bread for the table and then our server asked if we wanted two orders and we said yes. Then when our food came out first (very quickly), I asked about the bread after we finished the pasta. She tried to gaslight me saying we never ordered it so why would it be on the bill. It was no big deal tho.

    The espresso martini looked and tasted fantastic. We also had a non-alcoholic drink from the drink menu with blackberry and blueberry that was superb. We ordered 2 appetizers. We had the Wagyu meatball and the Coccoli. The meatball was excellent, the Coccoli was good but not memorable. The fried cream puff was too much bread in proportion to the Prosciutto filling. The individual parts were good, but the combination didn't work well. The homemade pasta main course, Orecchiette, was excellent. A multitude of different flavors. It was the highlight of the meal. Our other main, the signature Brick Chicken, was disappointing. The presentation on the plate was lacking in creativity. The chicken had a good flavor, and the parmesan potatoes it was served with were horribly oversalted. We ended our meal with the vanilla cheesecake that was excellent, very enjoyable. The ambiance was decent. We had a window seat with very comfortable chairs, but the choice of music, DJ disco music, was a poor choice for the mood of the restaurant. It was distracting from the experience. Our service was excellent. The server(s) were very attentive. They explained the menu well and were helpful with suggestions.
