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.

Very disappointing 1st time at this venue very over priced menu in general my dish was recommended by my server and it was drowned in cream sauce extremely overcooked pasta and no flavor just cream. Very expensive for the quality of pasta- the wagu meatball was good.

Great for a dinner to catch up with a friend. We got the coccoli which melts in your mouth, the brussel sprouts. the gnocchi and butternut squash pasta. Everything was delicious and service was wonderful!

They did not have what I originally wanted to order but the replacement was Ohkay. I was a bit annoyed that the waiter kept telling us the kitchen would close soon and then the bar. Our RSVP was at 8:30pm and we left by 10:00pm.

Really great place, will be back for sure. The staff is really knowledgeable, very nice and very efficient. We did the Chef's tasting menu with the wine pairing and it's the way to go. With each dish, the professional server or professional food runner expertly informed us of what was on the plate while the professional bartenders did the same with wine. Each item was more delicious than the last. A truly wonderful experience and I will be back.

My daughter and I had an amazing dinner. The Coccoli appetizer was amazing but a lot for 2 people. We had the brick fired chicken and the Gnocchi, both were fantastic. It was packed on a Saturday evening but the service was still outstanding.

Taylor was an amazing server for our table. She was attentive but not on top of us. She read our vibe and planned the dinner accordingly. I could tell she had a smiley face even under her mask!! The food was incredible. But I think Taylor spilled our experience over the top with her service. Great choice. Will be back for sure.

We wanted to grab a quick, late, lunch after a day of viewing real estate. Siena was prefect and we wanted to try since we had only been here in the past for dinner. We had the parm potatoes and burrata as an appetizer (they also accommodated my need for Gluten Free bread) and both were amazing!

I had the breakfast skillet which was a mostly vegetable dish, but full of complimentary and complex flavors. Definitely would come back!

Cozy booths, delicious food and top notch service! From the moment I entered the staff was warm and welcoming and extremely professional. No waiting for our table setup and our server was full of personality and knowledgeable about the menu. The hostess went above and beyond by checking our coats after we were seated and chatted with me while I waited for my date who was running a a few minutes late. I will definitely be back.

We did the tasting menu and had an amazing time, the octopus was out of this world. The service was fantastic as well, I loved to see everyone helping out running food and filling up our drinks, even if they weren’t our waiter.

The ambiance was amazing. The sever pressured us at least five times asking us to place drinks when we didn’t want any. We got the coccoli and it was average at best. Pizza was amazing though! Also got their potatoes which were blander than anything I’ve ever had before. Overall not worth spending $125 on food so basic.

Service was great but the food was just okay. Our orecchiette needed about another minute to be al dente. We were also celebrating a birthday and there was no special acknowledgment.

Came to Siena for the first time for a brunch date with a friend. The coccoli appetizer was one of the best things I ever ate. 10/10 recommend. She had the steak and eggs and I got the lobster Benedict. They accidentally ordered me the lobster roll, but were friendly and very quick to bring me the correct dish instead. I was super hyped about the lobster benny, but the brussels sprouts kind of overpowered the dish and took away from the taste of the lobster and ✹truffle hollandaise đŸ€€. Still amazing though. Can’t wait to come back for dinner sometime!!

Environment was great and Joel was amazing. Very knowledgeable with the menu and the food was fantastic. Coccoli was so fresh and flavorful as was my steak. Great place for a date night that doesn't have to be incredibly expensive.

The Ambiance of Siena Tavern was very beautiful, warm and inviting. This was our second time dining here. The first time we had the prefixed menu, which was incredible. This time we had two dishes based on the server's recommendation, and it was SPOT ON! The food is very delicious, the drinks are great and the staff are very friendly and knowledgable. WE highly recommend this restaurant and can't wait to go back! The spaghetti with lump crab and brick chicken made for a clean plate club!!

We were left waiting more than one hour past our reservation time (we arrived 10 minutes earlier
) some of the front door personnel were not very helpful, and after some 40 minutes waiting at the bar, the bar personnel started to threaten to remove us from there if we didn’t order anything. I only gave it two stars because the waitress that was serving our table (when we finally made it) was very kind. I would definitely not go back there with a reservation.

The food was fantastic and the wine selection was too. We had a reservation for 845 yet we didn't get seated until 930. It seemed far too overbooked & over capacity which drastically reduced quality of service and made the noise level a bit unbearable.

We had New Years Eve Menu and the food was delicious. Service on point. The music was a bit too loud and I would rather put something more cheerful. We felt like we were in the bar. Overall very good experience!
