Italian
A polished and energetic restaurant with Italian and Mediterranean cuisine curated by DineAmic Group's Chef/Partner, Fabio Viviani, also commonly known for his Celebrity Chef accolade as Bravo's "Top Chef Fan Favorite." The décor reflects a hybrid of a rustic Italian market, a fine dining restaurant and a modern, industrial tavern, bridging old world comfort and hospitality with a contemporary menu and design. When setting foot into this 10,000-square-foot eatery for lunch, dinner, late night cocktails or weekend brunch, you can expect to taste the same "from-scratch" Italian cooking fundamentals in pastas, pizzas, mozzarellas, gelato and everything between.

I was looking so forward to trying this restaurant but we were all so disappointed. The food was lacking flavor. I ordered the diavalo chicken and there was no hint of any spice. My husband has the paparselle and it was soft pasta with tomato paste. The black squid pasta was so over cooked and mushy. The Brussels sprouts that are flash fried were so slimy. Never had I had such awful sprouts. And to top it off we were served a cold cup of coffee and a child size gelato portions for dessert. I will never eat here again. I wish I went around the corner to El Porcellino's where the food and service is fabulous!

Well, I hope you got my previous note as well, as I was reached my out because this was such an outstanding experience, first because of you we did find a place serving dinner after 11pm!! And secondly , we had a fantastic experience in the Chicago symphony with a brilliant concert and to round it up , as it was the celebration for my daughters- high school graduation, Internship and my son’s all A’s high school freshman year- I was nervous to find anything still open after the concert as it went extra long.
So looking at open table app - during the concert - we found Siena Tavern and THEY DID DELIVER!!! Fantastic all around - staff, food taste and quality - we can not wait to go back there!
Thank you for finding g this for us!!!!

Siena Tavern is one of my favorite restaurants in the city but this past weekend the service was not as good as usual. The server left us for 20-30 minutes at a time and we nearly had to flag her down to get the bill and order our food. In addition, i put in my opentable request it was for a friend’s birthday but no one acknowledged it even after we told the wait staff.

Usually a great experience, last night was a disappointment. Service was weak. Food was ok but not great. Oysters were embarrassingly small. I should have sent them back but didn’t want to deal with it. They need some adult management and better quality control.

Second trip to Sienna. Atmosphere is great. Lively group and a great area outside on a nice day. No issues whatsoever with service. Food was not good. We started with oysters and they were either 100% void of flavor or just bad. We sent them back after eating two each. I had a pasta dish and although I had it on a previous visit it was lacking any seasoning at all. Very, very bland. Disappointing as I had a good experience on last visit.

Prices are high, portions small. Used to be a favorite place but seems like they've cut back on quality. It's in a great location but not the same place it was a few years ago.

Went for Sunday Brunch. Had Salmon board, which was very good. The "fritters", I think they were called, were way too rich/oily. It was a bit confusing in that the amount of sour cream given (quite generous) was large in proportion to the number of slices of bread (two very small pieces). I could have asked for additional pieces, but I did not.

It's refreshing to see that a restaurant that is so highly reviewed and hyped can actually exceed expectations, but I had a near perfect meal here. The gnocchi and bruschetta were incredible, and their cocktail list offered up plenty of delicious choices. I'll definitely be coming here on my next visit to Chicago!

Food was good. Lamb chops came out too well done and they redid them and gave us some free antipasti. However, even when the lamb chops were redone there were small bones that interferes with eating them. Desserts were all delicious and service was great. Restaurant was a bit loud, especially for a week night. Overall, would consider going back but was a bit disappointed.

It had been years since I'd been to Siena Tavern, and I'm happy to say it's as perfect an experience today as it was back then. The kale Caeser salad is perfection, the octopus amazing (what is that sauce?!) and the chocolate gelato cake with fudge was to die for.

Over priced for the portion sizes. Quality and taste of food was good, but not necessarily worth the money. For example, a few chunks of watermelon with sauce on top costs $15...and a meatball the size of a tennis ball costs $21. I wouldn't go back.
