Great experience as always. Very enjoyable and wonderful food.
Family get together, we had a very nice time, excellent food
We were a little behind they were able to accommodate us the staff was extremely helpful and the food was absolutely delicious.
This place is all promise and very little delivery. The best part of our meal was the $25 bottle of wine that Siena charged us $55 for.
Overcooked pasta. Overdressed salad. Over cooked swordfish. Overpriced everything. I've had a comparable meal at Olive Garden for less than $20.
Very nice for Mother’s Day. It was enjoyable.
I had the fried seafood platter appetizer and everything was cooked to perfection. My wife had the mussels appetizer and it was delicious! Our waiter was very attentive and the atmosphere was excellent.
Great ambiance, great food, great service, great special occasion location, on the pricey side and needs some housekeeping if seated upstairs
This was the first time I have eaten at Siena and I was very pleased. The service was great, the food was excellent and for once we could visit without screaming across the table. I will be back!
Wonderful evening w friends celebrating my birthday—the salmon/scallops were mouth-watering-incredible! Ambiance was perfect — pleasantly quiet for conversation. We were seated upstairs with a beautiful view of the Tuscan environment. Great service! I highly recommend.
I was puzzled after having read some outdated poor reviews on Yelp about this restaurant. I had not visited there in a couple of years and had always been satisfied on previous visits. Today we were very pleased. My husband and I had the walnut crusted trout with shrimp and our friend had a pasta dish with salmon. The potato leek soup that accompanied the meal was delicious. My husband had the green salad instead and complimented it. The lunch portions were generous and the homemade rolls were heavenly. The ambiance is always charming and the noise level made this my new favorite restaurant. I encourage you to ignore any poor reviews you have read.
Normally one of our favorite places where food and service are typically great, but server had no personality or sense of humor. And he never brought our leftover box back before we left.
I've been here several times, mostly on special occasions with my partner or on double dates with good friends. The food is just exquisite, one of the few places where you will find yourself making happy noises after every bite. Doesn't matter if you have never been or if you have a different server than the last time, they're advise is always good and I've yet to be given a suggestion I regretted. The service here is unnoticeable, as in you won't notice your glass empty or an empty plate has been removed from your table .
I can't say enough about this place but I lack the words to express it. You simply cannot go wrong. A bit spendy but worth the experience.
From our first impression, we liked the ambiance, and the friendliness of all the staff. The meals we ordered were simple , but the freshest ingredients were obvious from the first bite. Their homemade pasta is to die for. We splurged on the affogato sundae. Wow.
Cant wait to go again.
The only thing that made this 4 stars was a lady that helped us at the door but it wasnt the host. She was just interesting.
My expectations for a $30 pasta plate are that it is cooked to perfection. It was not.
Pleasant evening for intimate dining on the patio; excellent service, delicious meal.
Very friendly host, server, and server assistants! Had a great experience, restaurant was very well maintained and food was great.
Sienna always delivers, a fine dining experince.
The mushroom pasta is great and keeps us coming back.
You can't go wrong by choosing Sienna for your night out.
Our first time to Sienna… will not be our last.
Beautiful setting and lovely, friendly service. Had an awesome large salad with fried artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes and grilled wild salmon. Will definitely be going back soon!
Siena has been our go-to restaurant for special occasions for years. The food is typically good, if overpriced, as are the service and ambience. My only negative comments about our recent visit is that my food seemed unusually salty, which in my experience there just may be a singular occurence. I don't know why Siena is so parsimonious with the bread. We ran out early into the salad and had to wait for the server to ask us if we wanted more. Ran out again before the main course. Given the prices there I really don't understand why they can't just put a basket on the table like every restaurant I have ever been to in Italy does. I have made this observation in earlier reviews. That the practice hasn't changed suggests to me that nobody in a position to make even this minor decision really reads these reviews anyway. All that said, however, we will return to Siena for our special nights dining out and we continue to recommend the restaurant to others..
We always enjoy our meals at Siena! We have never had a bad experience here. The walnut crusted trout is our favorite dish, but there are many wonderful meals to choose from.
This restaurant is one of our favorite venue in Austin. The service and food are always very good. The location is easy to access. I recommend it without hesitation.
My sister and our daughters had a wonderful dinner Sunday night. Sorry we were a little late leaving, we were having so much fun. Samantha took great care of us, for our meal, and Gina was kind to serve us a last round of Chocolate Martinis!! Siena is one of our favorite places in Austin!!!
Great ambiance for any special occasion. Salad was outstanding, main course very good, dessert outstanding, coffee luck warm and not fresh. A little expensive but worth it.
Food, service and ambience is consistently good. Very enjoyable.
We have been to Siena several times and this time was just as if not better. The service was excellent and the food was great. I will definetley recommend to my friends and family.
The lamb and pecan crusted trout were fabulous. Quiet enough for good conversations. Not crowded at all and service was top notch.
Great food and great service. Joseph was incredible
I had made a reservation weeks in advance and shared that I was bringing a friend for her 70th birthday. We were sat in a corner with walls on both sides with no view at all and there were plenty of tables with window views. The food server may have been the worst I have ever had. I believe his name was David. He only allowed us one roll and took our plates away before we had finished our bread. He gave us the check before we were finished with our meal and never even asked if we wanted dessert (remember 70th birthday guest I brought). I asked if that meant were could not have dessert and his response, "Oh, did you want dessert?" I said that we did and he rolled his eyes like we were such a bother! Wow, I was so embarrassed to take my friend to a place with such poor service on such a special occasion for her. NEVER AGAIN!
Our wait person was very attentive and we have now been fortunate to have him there on two occasions. He was very knowledgeable. My only comments are on the food - my grouper was dry and I was not a fan and this was the special for the day- and for a birthday we received a scoop of ice-cream- seems like a signature dessert for this type of Italian cuisine would be more memorable.
Awesome meal, as usual! We had the baked Brie as an appetizer and it was superb as was my penne salmone. Joseph was our server and he did a super job of taking care of us! Highly recommended!
Had a 7:15 reservation, walked out at 9:30. Service was poor at best and the food was just ok. We have eaten there several times but not sure we want to go back; pretty tough night.
I hadn't been in a couple of years and I was pleasantly surprised... Our waiters were excellent! Paul and Derek in training. Well informed about the selections and very entertaining. It was a great meal and the pear for dessert with the fennel pollen was excellent. I treated coworkers... its been a rough go at work... so the lunch was a GREAT diversion and was very relaxing... we couldn't stop laughing at the experience... WONDERFUL... We will be back!!
overall experience was very good. The reason for 4 stars was the dessert lacked flavor and we were not provided a knife to cut the pear. I'm also not a fan of goat cheese which was blended into the cream cheese. When we asked the waiter for dessert options the full description was not provided. Overall a very pleasant experience.
We decided to have a nice dinner where we could talk and enjoy good food. Siena was just the right place.
I've never had a bad meal at Sienna. I highly recommend it.
We've been going here for 20+ years for special occasions. This time was for my wife's birthday and we were disappointed overall. It's a romantic location but this time too many things were wrong. We stated out with bottle of wine, which was very nice, then we ordered an appetizer with the thought that we could enjoy the wine and then the appetizer while we spent time with the menu to decide the rest of our dinner. At this point the waitress informed us that this was "not allowed" and that we had to order the complete meal at the same time. Wow, never heard that before but I guess at that point I was a little intimidated and rushed my entrée order and ordered the mixed grill. My wife ordered the evening beef filet special. Both were ordered medium rare, that's when I was again informed that they would not serve pork tenderloin less than medium. OK-again, probably my fault, so I agreed to the medium. Big mistake, pork tenderloin was over cooked and dry, no big surprise but I ordered it so my fault I guess.
I do think the menu is much smaller or less inviting to us.
I long for the days when the veal chop called my name every time I came in, those days are apparently gone for ever, hasn't been available the last few times we have been there.
Overall a disappointing evening for my wife's milestone birthday.
