    The ambiance was a 10/10. The place was packed as it was a Friday evening, but we got seated quickly, our server came quickly, and she was so nice! Great customer service! Food came out faster than I thought, and was as delicious as I expected. We got 3 meals and shared family style per her suggestion, so we could try a few different foods. We also went with her dessert options and again 10/10. You will not regret coming here (plus their birthday gifts are totally worth coming back every year!).

    This was my second time coming to sienna tavern. The espresso martinis here are always fantastic. The display that Sienna Tavern does is beautiful! Additionally, the food was fantastic! It came out in a timely manner and tasted delicious. The service as well was great! Even though the restaurant was busy we still felt attended to and our server was consistent! I will be coming back again!

    Great food. Simple, classic, and executed well. Service was wonderful. The only issue is how loud it is. There was an event at the bar space, and some tables are very close, making it very difficult to talk to your friends.

    This is my second visit. Excellent service and delicious food. Lovely evening with family to celebrate. Had Burrta and Brussels Sprouts for appetizers. Excellent. Had my favorite Truffle Mushroom Pizza and Cacio E Pepe again. Delicious. Had a bottle of wine for our group and Classic Cocktails. Completed dinner with Tiramisu and glass of port. Located close to Riverwalk. We got seated right on time per my reservation. If you like Italian food and live atmosphere, highly recommended.

    We used to love this restaurant, but were very disappointed with our dinner tonight. Service was slow and non attentive. Food took a long time to come out and was barely warm. Didn’t even want to stick around for dessert. Bar Siena was so much better!

    I love coming here during lunch! I always do the lunch special and the portion sizes are great and they’re spaced out nicely! The bartenders are all friendly and go above and beyond. At lunch there’s just one and even though they may get busy with making drinks, still amazing service!

    The food was okay, Our server was very friendly, but he did forget a few things. It was very nice that they brought my daughter out a doughnut with a candle in it since it was her birthday. She also got free Gelato. I think I would try different food the next time we go. My daughter (birthday girl) didn't care for her Tortellini. My Bucatinni Ciaco e Pepe was good, but very peppery. My husband & other daughter had the ribeye steak, they both thought it was okay, but not the greatest. I think I was the only one actually happy with what they got to eat. The interior was very nice & the ambiance was nice.

    Siena's was amazing. We started off with Wagyu meatball & Siena chopped salad and both were delicious. We did family style for our mains. The brick chicken is so fresh and flavorful ~ amazing. The crab spaghetti was amazing and burnt pepperoni pizza was yummy. Our server was fantastic. Run here ~ it's so good.

    It is not once was. We got there for brunch around 1:30pm but everything on the brunch menu was sold out and our server made several trip back to replace everything we ordered. Everything took forever and maybe they don’t have enough servers but seem like they have enough people to work there. Our server did cover our desserts because of the brunch issue so we appreciate that very much.

    Brunch after watching the Chicago River turn green. Good food. Well managed -- especially as it was day 1 of the St. Patrick's weekend and many wondering inebriated were around. Siena Tavern kept it sane inside! If there's an improvement, the request for "Extra dressing on the side" means on the side and NOT double the dressing on the salad so the lettuce looks like it's a raft floating down the Mississippi a la Huck Finn... We'll be back....

    Great ambience. We had reservations (really a must), but opted for a bar area seat. Our server Matty was terrific. The chopped salad was one of the best I’ve had in a long time and the pizza dough was perfection!!! If dining alone, a bar seat and a menu is the way to go!

    This place is the bomb. The best Caccio and Pepe outside of Rome. And the Coccoli appetizers are so Innovative and fun to fill with Prociutto and cheese. Ambience is great and everyone on the staff from waiters to those who clear the plates are engaged and seemingly love what they do. Love it.

    Brunch suggestion of the breakfast pizza and egg sandwich were terrific. Shakahuka and omelet enjoyed by our companion diners. Bloody Mary and Grey Goose peach something was great too. Room is festive, clean, good vibe with fun background music. We opted for a booth for more intimacy which was quite comfortable. All in all- very solid!

    I went here for dinner with a friend and had a fantastic experience. Our server Alex was extremely educated on the drinks we were ordering and i really enjoyed that. He was super sweet and accommodating. The food came relatively quick and the drinks came quick as well. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone!
