    Had reservation for 6 2 weeks in advance; table was under the air conditioner and was loud and dripping condensation on us. We were then moved to another round table jammed tightly in the back of the restaurant situated under the speaker system. The music was loud and we couldn’t talk during dinner. I asked for it to be turned down but it is programmed and the technician wasn’t present. The crazy thing is that most of the restaurant can’t hear the music- the speakers are too far away- so only the tables under the speaker can hear it - albeit way too loudly! Server was very nice and attentive. No options for children on the menu. Our kids shared adult entrees. The chicken was very good. Pasta was very average. Overall not great especially given the price.

    Highly recommend the pizza. Always a good experience. We ate outside which was wonderful but towards the end of the night around 10 o'clock, there were several rats running around the outside patio area eating the left over food that fell to the ground. Other than the outdoor rat situation, it was a very enjoyable dining experience.

    Appetizers were very average and not at all warm. Felt like they’d been sitting around for a while. Server was very nice but forgot our vegetables(roasted cauliflower )that were supposed to be served w dinner- once it finally arrived, this dish was very bland and I would not order again. Entree salad was very good, as was the salmon and lasagna that others at our table ordered. Overall, the meal was “fine” , but with so many other great Chicago restaurants, I probably wouldn’t choose to return.

    Good place to go with multiple people so you can order a few entrees and share family style. All of our entrees were good and we liked the dessert donuts. Skip the coccoli though. It looked and sounded much better than it tasted.

    My husband and I went for my birthday dinner and everything was lovely. We had such a great time and the food was AMAZING. I got the gnocchi & he got the lobster squid ink linguine and neither of them disappointed. Our server was phenomenal and extremely knowledgeable about the menu & beverages. He led us to some amazing choices! I would definitely come back the next time we are in the city.

    River North is ground zero for every imaginable restaurant concept, most of them expensive and not all that great on the culinary scale -- hence the value proposition isn't really there. Not so with Siena Tavern. Stopped in for brunch, which isn't really noted as a culinary forward dining occasion, so when you find surprise and delight in the food you take a step back and say, "wow that was extraordinary." Siena didn't miss a beat. From drinks to our uniquely creative brunch entrees it was just a wonderful food experience. I ordered a tempura battered king crab hash. The crab was battered so lightly and cooked so expertly it delivered a bit of crunch sensation with moist and flavorful crab. The saucing was amazing. The entire combination of ingredients was like a symphony of flavors. Even the cocktail carafe we had was just perfect. Nice service, too. Finally a breath of culinary fresh air in an otherwise food-as-commodity experience desert. Heartily recommend this to anyone who wants the kitchen and recipes to over-deliver.

    Nice cozy place, our waitress was lovely, the pizzas were slightly above average for wood fired neapolitan style, still nothing I’d go out of my way for, the drinks were subpar to say the least. I sent my first one (the No. 9 on the menu) back. It just tasted off and I will drink almost anything even if it’s my not absolute favorite but really couldn’t imagine drinking this entire drink. Waitress kindly explained it was their twist on a Paloma (which is exactly why I ordered) but I didn’t get even a hint of Paloma from it. Was just weird. Waitress kindly took it back and had the bar make me a regular Paloma, which I then politely drank but it still was not very good - tasted like it wasn’t sure whether it wanted to be a marg or Paloma and was having an identity crisis. The drink my sister got she was also less then enthused with. This place is nice, it’s fine, but there are so many other nice and more than fine places in Chicago, we probably won’t be back.

    Poor service from the host to the waitstaff. Host: No smile, seemed irritated, straight faced and dropped the menus off lacking any enthusiasm whatsoever. Server on patio: Lack of attention to detail, mumbled when speaking, zero eye contact, missing in action when needed condiments and check. No check back on food quality or if we needed anything. When check was received 20 m went by and he never returned. Bus service is excellent though. Food was good quality, fairly priced. The meatball and gnocchi were to die for. Drinks were overpriced at $16 for a cocktail. Five large rats ran by as we ate on the patio with people screaming and jumping up and the waitstaff didn't react whatsoever.
