Restuarant was very good. Our server was friendly and patient with our group of 5. The food arrived hot and in god form. Any extra additons speceially requested were met. We had a great meal and a great time.

The restaurant was full and was very loud. There was a very large group seated next to us and as the night went on, the group got louder with each bottle of wine. Others not seated with the large group, who were friends of the larger table began to shout and whistle to one another, which for those of us not with this boistery group, made talking an hearing one another quite difficult. So we called our meal a close and retired to the lounge for conversation. it would have been nice if management had of asked those whistling and carring on to settle a bit, but clearly everyone was having fun.

We would go back to Sienna. A good meal in all.

Not bad overall, but there was no wow factor. The ambiance was very nice, as were the wines and service. I had a margarita pizza that wasn't the most impressive thing. Still a nice place to stop at.

We enjoyed our dinner but have one minor complaint. We brought a very nice bottle of wine with us (which is allowed) and the waiter brought us white wine glasses. We asked if we could have some red wine glasses and were told he would have to look if they had any. We're in Napa Valley and eating at a restaurant at a nice hotel. Are you honestly telling me you have no red wine glasses? If they have a policy that if you bring your own wine, they only give you crappy glasses, that's ok but tell us that. It was a Sunday evening and not busy at all and we saw plenty of other red wine glasses.

After traffic delayed us, the Siena staff was still able to accommodate us even 30 min late. Drinks took a while to get to us, however the wine was delicious. Chicken was salty, and the pasta with the shorts ribs was cold. All in all it hit the spot after a long day of travel.

Once again this restaurant exceeds our expectations with the level of service provided. Thank you to Rodolfo (server) and Letty (Supervisor) for making us feel so welcome. The food was so good, especially the Eggs Benedict and breakfast potatoes. My husband love the breakfast buffet. I must give a special shout-out to Chef Rachel for the most perfectly cooked and seasoned breakfast potatoes we have ever had. This restaurant has become our regular "go to" everytime we visit Napa. Thank you again for the great level of customer service. See you again very soon.

I dined at the Meritage twice this week and was very impressed by both the service and the food. I am a vegetarian: their salads are fresh and tasty, the mushroom pasta delicious.

Arrived at 6:15 for our Dinner reservation - Server Seated us promptly - Dining Room was nice and quiet with a table or two occupied with families eating. We took our own wine to be enjoyed at dinner. We got our waters quickly and everything else went slow from there. A round of bread had to be asked for. We had to ask for our server more then once - We ordered appetizers then the main coarse. Our food was beautifully presented. Tasted good. Chocolate Flour less Mousse was the most satisfying part of the meal. By the time we got our meals ( Dinning Room was loud and full ) Not sure if I would go back for dinner. It was nice not to have to leave the Resort and enjoy our wine!

Very loud. Terrible place for a quiet couple’s dinner. Terrible acoustics. Foodselection/menu was small.
We had the seafood risotto, average at best, and the scallops, which was very good. Very small portion of scallops with no real side. The only thing this place had going for it was it was conveniently located near the Vina Bella/Meritage.

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.

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.
