I was attracted by this restaurant due to good recommendations on one website. However, I was disappointed. Firstly, the noise was inacceptable, we cannot speak each other without screaming: panels exist to hang on walls or ceiling to absorb noise. The food we ate was not Italian style except for the pasta alla carbonara, which more than the other dishes was similar. Anyway, in the ossobuco I didn’t find any bone marrow, as it should be. The spaghetti with fish ( I do not remember because was not mine) or shrimp were completely glued.
The price was as for a very good restaurant.... but this is not true. Service was nice. It has been a pity but somebody should control. I cannot recommend at this time.

I've been wanting to try Siena for a while but could never get a reservation. I made one for a business dinner on a Tuesday night at 645p. First the bad - they didn't have our table ready for more than 30 mins. When you make a reservation and confirm a reservation, you expect to have a reservation. That said, they bent over backwards to accommodate us and apologized profusely. You would never get that back in the NorthEast. So they are totally forgiven for that transgression.

Next - it's so loud in there, it's very hard to have a conversation. I was there on an important business dinner and it was the wrong venue for that. We were all hoarse at the end of the night from yelling across the table.

The good - lots of good. The bar service is awesome. They nailed our classic cocktails were very personable but efficient. The wine list was one of the best I've seen for a place like that. We had two premium Italian reds and may have been the highlight of the nite. Our server was fantastic. Equally pleasant, knowledgeable, made recommendations and usually was right there when we needed something. She said she'd been there 4 years and she proved it with her insights and suggestions. Finally, the food really was that good. Our table ordered a variety of apps, entrees and desserts. All were great. We will be back, just not for a business dinner.

We had 2 people serving us. I don’t know the man and woman’s name but we’re very attentive to our time constraints getting to a show on time. They made sure our food was served quickly and even took my valet ticket to have my car waiting when we finished. Excellent service and a happy, lively restaurant. Siena Tavern is a favorite! By the way- the food and drinks were fabulous also! Thanks for the great evening!

My sister recommended this restaurant for my wife's 40th birthday dinner, but apparently wasn't aware that it gets really loud past 9:00 or so. The service was marginal at best, and the food was adequate although certainly not exceptional. Having only been here one time, I would honestly probably not recommend it.

Already called the manager to discuss. She was gracious. We were a party of 5. They tried to squish us at a four in the round. Then fries were cold twice. Burger was greasy and coffee tasted burnt. They remade coffee and waitress walked away and said “ if it’s not good this time we don’t know how to make coffee”. It was backhanded but I think she wasn’t real comfortable. $190 for a few pizzas burgers soup and a few salads. Won’t be returning even though manager Carly was nice when I called afterward. Didn’t want any credit or anything special. Just she should know.
Too many other places to go. Restaurant looks worn as well.

It wasn't my first choice, but the kitchen is open late so we ended up here. I was pleasantly surprised by the food. The noodles in both our pasta dishes were quite good. The appetizers are definitely single-person, so order a few if you want to share.

Our server, Jess, was great! Friendly, informative and patient. Siena had a gluten free menu (which is why we chose this restaurant as my daughter has celiac disease and requires GF). Great dining experience.

Overall it was a decent meal. The ambiance and atmosphere was decent, it was a little more of the dark side in terms of lighting though. Service was decent given how busy the restaurant was during Easter. My girlfriend and I ordered the Coccoli, Carbonara in a Jar, Salted Caramel Gelato, Pistachio Gelato, and the Strawberry Prosecco Sorbet. The fish we enjoyed most was the Coccoli. The carbonara wasn't anything too special and the gelato/sorbet was just too sweet and dense. We would definitely come back for the Coccoli again, it was just that good.

Last minute dinner plans turned into our new favorite dinner destination! Everything thing was wonderful from the moment we walked in to two welcoming hostesses to the excellent servers and waitstaff. It was a semi busy night but the customer service was 10/10. The food was delicious as well, and came out within a reasonable amount of time. Overall we loved the experience here and especially the staff!!
