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.

Would definitely dine here again! We made our reservation fairly last minute, and despite them being busy, they were able to get us in and serve us in a very timely manner. Kind staff, and overall, great service and food!

Food was great but service was terrible. I completely understand it was busy but our waiter gave us such bad attitude the whole time. We ordered a Margherita pizza with pepperoni. They brought the pizza and everyone in the table got a piece and we knew it was just a pepperoni pizza. I told our waiter are you sure this is a Margherita pizza? He said "yes it is, according to you what do you think is missing?? I said, the main ingredients: the tomatoes and the basil. He said is there but we couldn't see it because is dark and they way the put cheese in the pizza. Haha we were 6 ppl in our table and we all decided to look for it and not even one piece of basil. This place is not cheap so very disappointing that we were treated like he was doing us a favor.

I was a little skeptical about this place, after calling to make reservations and then trying to change the reservation I was told I didn’t have one. Had to change plans, we ended up coming here for after dinner drinks/dessert because of that. I was put on hold 3 times and everyone over the phone was super rude. But once there, our server was great! Great atmosphere and the chocolate cake was delicious!

Food was terrific per usual.Service was stellar and genuine per usual. But there’s no way they were operating at 40%. We were at a table in the bar area. Every table was full, as was every seat at the bar. (I can’t speak for the main dining room). It didn’t feel as safe as I would have liked it to feel.

Mickey is a legendary man. Thank you Mickey for covering our Valentine’s dinner after the 4th course took too long. You didn’t have to, but it was a highly honorable and more than professional way of dealing with an issue like that.

Siena Tavern NEVER disappoints! The ambiance is stunning and the food is always immaculate. We started off getting the grilled octopus with a side order of toasted bread (trust me, you’ll want the bread to soak up the marinade!). The grilled octopus is so tender and flavorful. The portion is kind of small, but it’s perfect right before your main dish. We split the gnocchi and truffle mushroom pizza, which are both so decadent and filling. The overall vibe of this restaurant is ‘romantic chic’. Definitely one of my favorite places in Chicago.
