Feature salad, with apple and goat cheese, was delicious but the server warned us the kitchen may be close to sold out (at 6:15pm. ). I think he was right because the 3 we ordered looked like 2 stretched out.
Chorizo and kale Pizza was dry and ‘dusty’ with all the good stuff in the middle and the too-thick doughy crust surrounding. Poor distribution! Not enough oomph. Wanted chilies and olive oil but it was too busy to be demanding.
Squash fettuccine also kinda bland and not hot. (Asked for salads first, but it all came together. The server did acknowledge and apologize for that. )
Service was pleasant and ok, but on 2 occasions he said ‘I’ll be back in a minute’ and he definitely wasn’t. Ie. to order dessert/coffee, so we had to skip.
Chocked it up to newly opened restaurant kinks. And we know we were there during the pre -theatre rush.
We will probably be back to give it another try.
We like the ambiance and location.
The food was delicious and the service was friendly and prompt. We were just a little surprised at how limited the menu was. About six choices of pizza and pasta, only one salad option, and a few other appies. We really missed the antipasto platter.
Very convenient location for the Stanley theatre.
They have a delicious Valentine’s Day tasting menu that is more filling than you’d expect!
Family dinner out! Grandma was a little picky but the rest of us loved it and would came back !
Beef carpaccio was amazing . Small but tight menu .
Arrived to a warm welcome by the manager. Seated immediately and informed this was opening night under new name. Decor is modern, subdued lighting is at perfect level, tables not too close together. Very nice look and feel for a date. We were offered tastes of the wines served by the glass to help choose. Acceptable but neither were the fruity dry type that I like. The quality of wine choices could be improved, at least for our tastes. We ordered 2 pastas within 5 minutes of arriving. After waiting 50 minutes trying to stretch our glass of wine, I had to find the manager to ask for our food and it came 5 min later. Then we had to rush dinner because we had a show to attend, a fact we had given the server when ordering. The pastas were tasty and a suitable quantity, but don’t expect a pasta main alone to fill you up. Overall, I will try it again when looking for a simple pizza pasta dinner with a nice ambiance, and hope the service issues have been sorted out when I do.
Overall, the quality of the food was mainly good - a nice tuna crude appetizer and pizza, though an uninspiring focaccia (somewhat tough and soaked in olive oil) - but we found the menu excessively limited. There's only one appetizer aside from the focaccia, no salads and no 'secondos' (mains), despite them showing a couple of mains on their website. Also no specials, even on a Saturday night. The ambience was nice (low light and candles), though coats don't stay on the backs of chairs and there didn't appear to be a coatrack near the entrance. Also, the drinks menu was very light - three beers, a number of wines, and nothing else. The service was warm and friendly, but I really think they need to offer more to induce me to come back.
We had a great time and the food was really, really good.
Great service, delicious food. Highly recommended.
Some of the best food I've eaten in Vancouver. Every bite was a joy.
Food was excellent, as was the service. Crowded before the Art’s club performance and difficult for cross table talk if you have hearing problems. Will definitely go again but try for a corner table.
I have always enjoyed myself at Siena - the food and service are always excellent. I would like to request that you bring back the antipasto platter - this is one my favs and was recently taken off the menu. Keep up the good work!!
Incredible food and great service! Will definitely be back.
No specials during the holiday season, but everything we tried on the regular menu was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. An excellent neighbourhood Italian restaurant that I would highly recommend.
Menu very limited due to Renovations but service was pleasant. Food a bit bland.
