Siena Ratings and Reviews
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.
Limited choices on the menu, but reliably good food.
new owners, same chef, different vibe.
Caught them in the middle of menu overhaul. They have added thin crust pizza, probably a good idea for the pre-theater crowd. But this week the menu was still a bit sparse. Food is still great though, the Lamb Ragu was excellent. Staff said the rest of the menu and the daily specials would be back in a week or two. We'll worth checking coming back to check that out.
Menu has changed since the last time we were therevand is just as delightful as the previous menu.
Service was incredible, their knowledge of the wine list was very helpful. Siena has a great ambience and a menu which also had good vegetarian options. Our mains were good sized and absolutely amazing, the special salad was delicious, and food came out in perfect timing. Very happy to have found this little spot close to home.
Not one of our faves but good .... we’d go again if our faves are all unavailable.
We enjoy dinner before plays. Timing and service always work perfectly. Highly recommended.
Waiters were lovely, but dinner took quite a while to come, due to pre-theatre rush, I think. When it came, it was great.
My husband and I and our friends have been to this restaurant a couple of times before we go to the Theatre. It is very quaint and the food and service is always great! We will be back!
A wonderful neighbourhood restaurant that cares about their cooking! Highly recommend it.
Food is good, but service was rushed and not accommodating.
Enjoyable meal and good service. Would have liked to see more than one gluten free option
There was only one person waiting on tables Sunday evening and I was left with the feeling that attention was no longer of importance immediately after the main course was served. A little "How is your meal?" "Can I get you anything else?" would have been appreciated. Unfortunately I for one was left wanting perhaps a little more water and a little more Parmigiano on top of my pasta but chose to remain silent and just enjoy the company of my dinner guests.
Great food and wine. We were there early on a Saturday evening after a matinee at the Stanley. Great wine recommendation. Quality food. They choose to have a small menu and do it really well!
Four of us went for dinner on Friday evening before the theatre. Ordered the wrapped burrata with arugula and heirloom tomatoes, however no tomatoes! The kale salad ordered by our friends was very salty. 3 people in our party ordered the daily risotto, it was only warm and not thoroughly cooked. The spinach and ricotta ravioli was fairly "plain" and again not hot. It was super noisy in the restaurant so hard to hear each other over the voices of others. I don't think we will be back anytime soon. Lots of other restaurants in the area.
We stopped here for dinner before a play at the Stanley and had a delicious meal. We both had the beet risotto which was excellent, and finished with the lemon tart. Service was timely and friendly which was good, given we had a deadline to leave by. We will definitely eat here again!
Great food (including several veggie options), good service and nice wine.
Siena has become my 'local'. I love dining there. The service is always friendly and attentive.
The food is excellent.
First time at Siena. Smaller menu but with daily specials there is more than enough choice. Nice ambiance. A little cramped but pretty standard in Vancouver. Great service and food quality. Two glasses of wine, one appetizer and two entrees with tax and tip = $95.00
Pasta special had very little sauce. Wine list very pricy. Too expensive for what you get. Room has too many tables crammed in making service difficult. Gave Siena a second chance after a poor meal last year. Won't be back.
not cheap but great food .
Disappointing that the theatre discount was gone :(
Very comfortable and tasty menu. Service was good and not intrusive
Flavourful and inventive dishes. Pasta was superb! Quite noisy with a full restaurant of people but still enjoyed the energy; and found the seating comfortable. Service was excellent and no matter how busy it became our server always wore a smile. Being so close to the Stanley Theatre makes it a must do for a pre-theatre dinner. Would definitely recommend to friends.
