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.

Have been here many times and it has never disappointed. Food is good and so is the atmosphere. Great for business casual type meetings and for dates.

Not bad. Truffles and Parmesan are all over the menu (not a bad thing) but the food is a little under-seasoned for them not to put salt and pepper on tables.

Overall a nice place, but nothing blew me away.

The food, wine and overall service was great. We went for my girlfriend’s birthday and they brought out complimentary cupcake flavored gelato which isn’t on the menu.

We went for a casual Saturday lunch. We had a picky group and our server got everything right. Food was all really good - burger cooked perfectly, gnocchi delicious, hamachi crudo also very good. My only complaint is that the crudo is $16 for a very small portion.

Great restaurant! They were running behind with our table but kept us informed and were apologetic. Waiter was fun, knowledgeable and prompt. When they brought out a wrong antipasti, they comped the mistake. Food was good. A bit money than the $ say on sites so plan accordingly. Will come here again!

Short rib was really very good. Sat us early from our original reservation time which was great but when we walked in to see about being seated early there was NO way it would happen. Need smoother logistics.
Enjoyable meal

This is my second time to Siena tavern and tried all new items (except the carbonara in a jar, too good to pass up. Tried the burrata, beet salad, scallops and of course the carbonara. Then for desert had the amazing Olive Oil Cake and it was absolutely amazing!!!

Had weekend in Chicago with my 23 year old son. We sat at the bar and shared the 92oz Porterhouse for two. It came out on a sizzling platter, sliced off the bone for us. It was fantastic. A foursome of football fans was sitting next to us and ended up ordering it as well. Bartender attention was just right. Will definately go again.

We love this place. Great ambience and really great food. We were in the mood for a salad during lunch as well as pizza. Our waiter told us one of the best salads is the chopped salad. My wife and I would have to disagree. Probably one of the most bland salads I’ve ever had in my life. The only way they can make it a good salad is if they offer you salad dressings that actually would make it taste like something. The spicy pepperoni pizza however is fantastic. Overall, we still love this restaurant but we’re just a bit dismayed that the chopped salad was pushed amongst all the other salads as the one to eat.

Excellent Italian fare, perfectly executed and beautifully presented; competent and friendly service. The handcrafted cocktails are often quite unconventional and very tasty. They are well worth the money. The wines, on the other hand, suffer from mark-ups that are way too high.

our fave restaurant in Chicago. Waitstaff is always super friendly and overly attentive. Ask your server for suggestions - they are all really passionate and knowledgeable and we have found some great dishes with their help. Proteins are fantastic but the pasta dishes are where this place really shines. in a city with thousands of choices we keep coming back here because every time is better than the last!

We started at the bar and the bartender was less than friendly but made up for it with a very good Old Fashioned. Our waiter was great, made food suggestions that were spot on. We had the burrata which was fabulous, then shared the mushroom pizza and duck confit risotto. Great flavor combos, very delicious!

Went on NYEve. Should have expected getting rushed out in order to turn over the table. They called me the day before to confirm my 6:30 reservation and make sure I knew that I had to be out by 8:00 PM!!! That has never happened to me before. My wife's appetizer came to the table 10 minutes before mine and before we had ordered our main dinners! They need chef Ramsey to drop a few F bombs on them.

Absolutely amazing. Our initial motivation to dine at Siena Tavern was the fruit of watching the victory on Beat Bobby Flay. I can’t even explain how pleased we all (party of 6) were with our meals, drinks and atmosphere. Two of us are gluten free and the menu options were phenomenal. Thank you for an exceptional dining experience! Everything about our evening was excellent and we cannot wait to return!

Exceptional service and food, the only disappointment was our table. We requested a booth and were told there wasn’t any, but we could see booths open. When we inquired with the hostess on our way to the table she basically ignored us.

Overall, a great dining experience in Chicago

Went for a holiday brunch with family. I have always enjoyed this restaurant but we were all disappointed this time (well 5 out of 6 of us). I ordered the lobster hash which included far too many bits of shell and corn silks (I understand that everything is made fresh but this was ridiculous). Two in my group ordered avocado toast and eggs. The extra thick toast halves were impossible to cut or bite, rendering it basically inedible. The salmon platter was a big hit while the other 2 were just okay. Unfortunately, we’ll cross this off our brunch list for now.
