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.

We had a wonderful night! Our server was fantastic - great personality, very friendly, made some great and honest suggestions. I had the crab spaghetti and my husband had the pork chop- both were amazing! The bruschetta was yummy as well. We’ll be back.

We arrived for an early dinner after an afternoon play. We ordered three different appetizers to share and had a dessert. Our service was impeccable and we did not feel rushed at all. The food was delicious we will definitely be back.

I’ve been to both Siena Tavern and Bar Siena many times and unfortunately, this time did not live up to the expectation. The food was not as good as in the past.

No one came to get us to sit when the table was ready. (They knew we were at the bar. We were asked to leave and close out bc they needed the table and we hadn’t been seated for 2 hours. It was off putting and rude I don’t think we would come back. The wait staff was nice.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at Siena Tavern on Saturday, August 10th. Every part of the meal, including the service, was top notch.

Went for brunch on a Saturday with a party of 8. Mostly positive reviews of the food. The meatball is good but a waste of wagyu. How can you appreciate the quality of the meat when it is in meatball form and smothered in marinara and cheese? Our server was often pulled away by other clients. One of our drink orders came out incorrectly. Seemed like there was poor communication. Overall good but not likely to return here often.

Ceme to Chicago from Montreal for the first time. Siena Tavern was recommended by a local we know. On arrival
Asked to sit outside. After a wait sat down and were served promptly. Our food seemed to arrive right away, a little too quickly! It was not very hot, almost like it had been preassembled and reheated? It was tasty. We were barely finished when the busboys came to clear. This was done as each one of us finished leaving an empty table save for one person. It felt like they were rushing us out. Is this a Chicago restaurant thing? Makes me even more appreciative of our food scene back at home.

I wish I lived in Chicago so I could go to Siena Tavern all the time! The food was remarkable and we were so impressed with the knowledge and friendliness of our phenomenal server! He helped us navigate the menu (and make accommodations) for a food allergy. WE LOVED IT!

Food was mediocre for a celebrity chef venue. The waiter was attentive at first then pressured us to place entire order up front. He promised the apps would come out first then food. 10 minutes later EVERYTHING (apps/main)was delivered to the table. Also over sold the donut dessert which our table of 5 agreed was a huge waste. A serious disappointment.
