    Good place to go with multiple people so you can order a few entrees and share family style. All of our entrees were good and we liked the dessert donuts. Skip the coccoli though. It looked and sounded much better than it tasted.

    River North is ground zero for every imaginable restaurant concept, most of them expensive and not all that great on the culinary scale -- hence the value proposition isn't really there. Not so with Siena Tavern. Stopped in for brunch, which isn't really noted as a culinary forward dining occasion, so when you find surprise and delight in the food you take a step back and say, "wow that was extraordinary." Siena didn't miss a beat. From drinks to our uniquely creative brunch entrees it was just a wonderful food experience. I ordered a tempura battered king crab hash. The crab was battered so lightly and cooked so expertly it delivered a bit of crunch sensation with moist and flavorful crab. The saucing was amazing. The entire combination of ingredients was like a symphony of flavors. Even the cocktail carafe we had was just perfect. Nice service, too. Finally a breath of culinary fresh air in an otherwise food-as-commodity experience desert. Heartily recommend this to anyone who wants the kitchen and recipes to over-deliver.

    Nice cozy place, our waitress was lovely, the pizzas were slightly above average for wood fired neapolitan style, still nothing I’d go out of my way for, the drinks were subpar to say the least. I sent my first one (the No. 9 on the menu) back. It just tasted off and I will drink almost anything even if it’s my not absolute favorite but really couldn’t imagine drinking this entire drink. Waitress kindly explained it was their twist on a Paloma (which is exactly why I ordered) but I didn’t get even a hint of Paloma from it. Was just weird. Waitress kindly took it back and had the bar make me a regular Paloma, which I then politely drank but it still was not very good - tasted like it wasn’t sure whether it wanted to be a marg or Paloma and was having an identity crisis. The drink my sister got she was also less then enthused with. This place is nice, it’s fine, but there are so many other nice and more than fine places in Chicago, we probably won’t be back.

    Poor service from the host to the waitstaff. Host: No smile, seemed irritated, straight faced and dropped the menus off lacking any enthusiasm whatsoever. Server on patio: Lack of attention to detail, mumbled when speaking, zero eye contact, missing in action when needed condiments and check. No check back on food quality or if we needed anything. When check was received 20 m went by and he never returned. Bus service is excellent though. Food was good quality, fairly priced. The meatball and gnocchi were to die for. Drinks were overpriced at $16 for a cocktail. Five large rats ran by as we ate on the patio with people screaming and jumping up and the waitstaff didn't react whatsoever.

    nice place looks wise. Burger was very good. Lobster roll so-so. Pasta was a bit hard and came in a gravy which I would have not ordered had I known but that is on me. Old Fashion was ok. Would try again but didn't hit it out of the park for me this time. Joe our server was very attentive and good. Cheesecake dessert was excellent

    Food & drinks were amazing! I had the chicken dish and it exceeded my expectations. Everyone at our table ordered different dishes and we loved them all. Plus we had two of the salads and those were so tasty. Great cocktails selection as well. Plus the frozen cocktails were a bonus. Sienna tavern went to the top of my list for downtown dining. Server was nice and very knowledgeable but wish he was a bit friendlier.

    our server was amazing! he knew his wines and the food he recommended went well with the wine, other than that we had a busser who let us know that they were closed and that we had to leave. me and my husband were in shock for the fact that I'm in the hospitality business and one of the managers for the original rainbow who is partnered with Buona beef... like I didn't like his tone, him rushing us or the fact that a busser was rushing a guest who came to spend some time there and give your business, not allowed and hopefully the busser changes his views towards being in the hospitality industry.

    Server was nice and informative about menu selections. Also checked in frequently to ensure everything was okay. Drinks were good and food wasn’t bad but not great. Salmon and Brick oven chicken were the dining selections. Overall drinks are good and atmosphere is cool. They do play modern/pop music as well.

    Good was exceptionally well done; cocktails totally solid. Better than average wines by the glass. Our server Joel was great. Only complaint is the music level got cranked up at some point around 8-830pm that it was more of a club atmosphere. Wife and I could barely have a conversation. Wound up skipping dessert and coffee and had it back at the hotel instead. Truly no idea why management thinks music that loud is a smart combination with exceptional food and wine.

    Our experience at the restaurant didn’t start so well. We arrived and the host seemed so unhappy and not friendly at all - it was like receiving customers was a burden. We would expect someone will greet you with a smile and make you feel welcome to the restaurant. We had to wait a few minutes to get our table even the place was empty because they didn’t have enough servers. Not a problem as I know many restaurants are struggling with staff shortage, but after we sat, I would expect some faster service, but it was very slow. Took us a long time to get even tap water and every time we ordered a drink it took forever. As we sat outside, it was extremely noisy (Chicago streets noise, not the restaurant’s fault). Even most of tables outside were empty, they were tied together and with heaters in between then that there were barely no space to put the chair away from the table to sit! I don’t understand why to not have more space between the tables if it is so empty. Food was very nice, though. We had coccoli to start and it was delicious. The burrata was ok. For main we had mushroom pizza and the vodka pasta with sausage and it was. really good.

    The food is delicious and the service was great. We were not there to celebrate a birthday, but they found out a birthday was coming up and surprised us with a treat and we really appreciated it. My favorite item is the coccoli. Everything I have ordered has been delicious. This was the first time I have been there for brunch and they had a brunch menu and you were still able to order from the main menu.
