Second time there, no where near as good as the first. Server was inattentive, even though it wasn’t busy. Food quality wasn’t what it should be. Such a let down. Don’t think we’ll b back anytime soon.

The food was amazing and the service was excellent !!! Our waitress was very helpful to us by recommending dishes and describing in detail how it was prepared on her recommendation I chose the Veal chop it was 16 ounces of deliciousness my girlfriend asked if they could do a chicken saltimbucca for her and they said no problem at all she also loved her meal!! For an appetizer we had the giant meatball which was also delicious! Every detail was met with professionalism and we look forward to going back soon!!!

Waited at the front to be greeted for about 4 minutes while 3 young women congregated at the computer screen ignoring us completely though they saw us standing there. When we were greeted it was with a curt, “hi how can we help you”. I’m thinking how do you think you can help us, you idiot? But naturally is only said “We have a 6:45 reservation.” And we were seated. Our waitress was lovely, but the food was terrible. Everything was under-salted
and generally flavorless. The oil used to fry the polenta was rancid and my chicken was rubbery to the point that I could only take one bite. That bite was enough, however, to give me stomach issues until 8am the following morning. Overall this experience was just plain bad.

Went to Siena's after a performance at PPAC. We got there a little early but the staff was more than accommodating & were able to seat us early. Server was excellent, told us about the menu, special, was very friendly. We dined on Calamari All Aceto Balsamico, Pollo al Diavolo , & the Salmon special . All were all excellent choices & would recommend them . Highly recommend this restaurant for a return visit

My husband and I visited Siena for our anniversary. It is not the first time we dined there & it will certainly not be our last. I had the filet mignon special with mushrooms & gorgonzola cheese. It was cooked perfectly, and was tender & delicious. Every bite was a flavorful treat which included the side of polenta & stringbeans. We love Siena & plan to visit again in the near future. 5 stars

First time dining there based on friends' recommendation. Salad was great, salmon perfect, too much salt on green beans. Unfortunately, seated in the bar area, not knowing there was a dining area. Difficult hearing conversation. Probably would have been fine in the dining area which looked like it had nice ambiance.

So really loud in here on Saturday night. Couldn't hear one another talk across the table. My friends meal came to us cold but it was just to much of a hassle to find our server to have pasta reheated. Used to be better. Not so much anymore.

Thursday evening get together with out of town friends. We had a fairly early arrival (6:30) and no issues getting seated. The service initially was very attentive. The food arrived in a reasonable time, was prepared just fine and all were happy with the meal. BUT, we had ordered a couple of sides for the table, and they never showed up until nearly the end of our meal. That is my issue with the service. Once the order was taken, the server essentially disappeared. Many others brought the apps and entree's but the sides were MIA. Because the original server was not there, none of the other realized. It was probably an issue in the kitchen, but getting the sides when everyone was 80% done was bad. No apology, no adjustment to the bill, no mention. That would have been a no brainer. Didn't happen.

We always love Siena, it our 10000% go to restaurant.. not just special events, but when you want to go get and have great meal & service.. We love the wine list and the finishing drink of Snickerdoodle Martini for Desert. We will continue to return and enjoy , but this was not one of the best visits..
Service not the normal quality level.. we even commented that it was all new faces in wait staff & assistants.. Food was not bad, but not as good as normal say... everything was a little off .. simple as that .. Not a disaster, but not the usual enjoyable trip.
Firenze board was really good, Wine was really good and that all started off ok.. then our dinners came out, which meant they forgot our salad course... which caught us off guard and that's when it all fell apart... they rushed a salad out , which wasn't great and just didn't fit on the table, or have the correct pallet for what we were eating..
The meals were not as sharp as usual.. Rissotto with Shrimp and vegetable puree was ok, not great .. that was disappointing... Veal Saltamboca was same... I asked for minor change and turned into lets say communication error... so the dish was severed over plain penne pasta with masala sauce.. not tomatoes sauce on pasta ..
After that our finished plates lingered far to long on the table... so that was discouraging too.. and disappointing service..
The Desert and martini was great and we were happy to leave... not as happy as always , little disappointed but for sure we have had 10+ amazing visits there... We will return, maybe it was too busy , new staff etc... Sad to be writing this review, but truth is truth.
