Rodolfo is hands down one of the best servers in Napa and the manager, Letty, is just awesome. I always order the Eggs Benedict. They offer one of the best hollandaise sauce anywhere.

The food certainly stroked the palate. However, I like to allot more time for a 4 course meal. I came away feeling stuffed, not satisfied. 4 courses need to be spaced out more. In France, this meal would have been served over a course of 4 hours.

Sadly like many restaurants in the Valley and beyond, I believe staffing shortages were reflected in the service and quality of the food.

The service and timing were completely off, so much so that the manager had to come to our table (and others) to apologize.
They also brought the check before our dessert came (they forgot about it). Let me say, the servers that were on staff were very pleasant and did a good job given their staffing challenges.

Unfortunately my New York steak was subpar and inedible based on the quality of the cut (something that is inexcusable at a restaurant like this and the prices they demand). Other items lacked seasoning. Surprising to me, and the table was that the best dish of the evening was the chicken. Words you would rarely hear from me, if ever.

For the price the food was just “eh”. The service was attentive, ambiance was ok. It’s not somewhere I plan on returning to to eat. I’ve heard the Meritage Spa is worth visiting.

Wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner!!! We are not buffet types so the sit-down service with fixed menu was perfect, though you could also order off the regular menu if you did not want the traditional Thanksgiving dinner menu. The fixed menu was a traditional Thanksgiving dinner - soup was a butternut squash bisque, mashed potatoes, green beans, roasted brussel sprouts, real cranberry sauce (not canned jelly), stuffing, gravy, turkey leg confit, and assorted breads. The turkey breast slices were cooked perfectly and the overall portion was very generous. We would definitely do Thanksgiving Dinner at Siena again!!

Carlos was our server & he was awesome! He made the entire dining experience a great one. He did everything possible to accommodate special food requirements. I wish all servers were as pleasant & motivated to provide extraordinary service.

The food was excellent. We had the scallops & the steak. Both were perfectly cooked & very tasty.

The environment is heavy & doesn’t match the price tag of the menu items but it was quiet.

This restaurant has become one of our favorite spots in Napa and it's convenient to the Vino Bello timeshare. The food has improved so much and is always nicely presented. They serve awesome Eggs Benedict. The Sunday Buffet Brunch is lovely. Our server, Rodolfo, is absolutely fabulous and Letty Hernandez (hostess/supervisor) was just as kind as could be. We make sure to sk for one of his tables every time we come in. They both made us feel right at home.

After a long day of traveling to get to Napa and checking in to the Meritage Resort, we chose to dine at Siena located on site and we’re pleasantly surprised with a lovely dinner on the outdoor patio. I ordered the corn risotto with soft shell crab which was absolutely delicious. Several local wines are available by the glass or bottle. Service was friendly and efficient. Siena was a great choice for our first night in Napa.

The hotel was packed with wedding venues and it certainly is a great place to bring guests for a wedding

However , for an intimate getaway weekend I thought the price was too high for the lack of sophistication of the resort

If I were to do a romantic weekend auberge du Soleil or Meadowood

Although Yountville is filled with a few hidden gems , namely the hotel Yountville.

Anniversary weekend, and anticipating a great dinner. Service was excellent, ambiance was great, but the food was a bit disappointing. The food was not bad, but definitely not worth the exorbitant pricing. I got the special of the evening (steak), but it was really nothing special. And for $40, that leaves me disappointed. My wife got a shrimp dish (she loves seafood), did not care for it. The one thing my wife did love was the Heirloom tomato salad. Overall, I would suggest you dine somewhere else unless you want to overpay for what is in essence average food.

Although we had an okay dining experience, I am only rating it "good" across the board because it was just that. There was a limited menu, the fried chicken was dry, the kitchen was slow...it was just overall mediocre.

This is place has been very disappointing. They charge Buffet for 21$ and the food/choice is very crappy. I ordered Eggs Benedict for Brunch and it took for ever for the Brunch to arrive. The only cool thing was that I could charge my Tesla to an EV Charge Point area while we were eating but our brunch experience was very bad. Truly not recommend.
