A polished and energetic restaurant with Italian and Mediterranean cuisine curated by DineAmic Group'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.

I am very disappointed that this was my first visit to the restaurant, because had I known how much we enjoyed it, it could have been a place we would have visited regularly over the past few years. The food and service were exceptional. We had a shaved Brussel sprout salad, spaghetti with jumbo lump crab in a delicious light creamy sauce, and a truffle mushroom pizza, and a beer. All were very delicious. The server was very helpful in recommending dishes and the service was excellent. When we return to this restaurant which will be soon, we will want to get a repeat of our choices because they were so good, but I guess we should try different items!

I brought a group of out-of-towers to Siena Tavern based upon a recommendation from my brother who is local to Chicago. We each ordered an array of appetizers, entrees, and cocktails - each one of them a delicious spin on a traditional favorite. The service was exceptional and the ambiance was comfortably hip and chic. I will be back and I’m confident that my dinner guests will be too!

Our server was great, but we were seated later than our reservation, we had to ask for bread three separate times, the food came late, my entree came out wrong the first time (they had to remake), and the food quality was just... fine. We were also charged for the wrong table's food accidentally. Much better spot for post-work happy hour than meeting up for fine dining. That being said, we really did have a great server.

Pleasantly surprised
We met a friend for brunch on a beautiful Saturday-a crazy time around the river. But we were pleasantly surprised by the lovely setting, great food and attentive service at Sienna Tavern.
Great food and drinks-enough to remain satisfied until evening.
P.S. Our friend lives in Trump Tower and remarked at how reasonable the meal was.

We were in Chicago to see Hamilton and arrived later than anticipated into O'Hare. Sienna Tavern was holding a reservation for us that we were forced to change at least 3 times. The staff were so amenable to all of our change requests and even remembered to help us celebrate our anniversary when we arrived with gratuitous glasses of champagne. The late night vibe was great; lots of cheerful people but you could still have a private conversation. It was a beautiful night for the outdoor patio, too. We split the kale salad, my husband had the brick chicken which he could eat without a knife it was so tender and I ordered the wild mushroom/truffle tagliatelle which was simply outstanding!!! The wine list is definitely overpriced but if you are celebrating a special occasion and feel you can splurge, go for it. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and will definitely revisit the next time I am in Chicago.

Arrived early for our reservation and was told I'd get a text when table was ready. Asked how long when 15min late and was told they were waiting for us...no text.

Gnocchi had little flavor and baked lasagna was so hot it took 15min to cool off to eat it.

Waiter disappeared after food arrived. When he finally got to us I said we'd been trying to get him for a while. He immediately left and 30sec later he threw the bill on the table. Never asked if food was ok. Never asked about dessert.

First time I left zero tip. Disappointed because we picked the restaurant for our anniversary

It was my boyfriend and I’s first time going to Sienna Tavern and it was definitely one of the best restaurants we’ve been to. We had a server named KJ and she made our experience amazing. The food was great and the restaurant is nice. We will definitely be coming back and will speacially request KJ.

We’ve been to Bar Siena and we expected the food to be as good. It was nowhere near as good so we will not be back. Also, we were there to celebrate two birthdays, and the food was so disappointing that we did not order dessert.

Have consistently had good food and good service at Siena Tavern. Had a great server that was ready to share recommendations. The Alaskan Halibut and the Salmon were both great choices. Watermelon salad starter and shaved Brussels sprouts starter were also great. Will look forward to our next visit as it always good.

This was our first time at Siena and it didn’t disappoint. We’ve been trying to dine here and when we did...wow! The food was amazing and the service was awesome. Our server, John, was attentive but not excessive. The gelato flight was a fun way to do dessert. The chicken diavolo was delicious and the gnocchi as well. I’m so glad they make their own pastas. We will definitely be back.
