Blogger Reviews of Siena Tavern

  • Eating For Sanity on Jan 14, 2014

    Coccoli consisted of crispy, airy dough balls resting on top of prosciutto de parma, which is served along side scoops of stracchino cheese, basil oil, and all drizzled with a truffle honey. You can tell they thought of every component, making the dish absolutely INCREDIBLE.

  • Jen MarquezThe Wagyu Beef Meatball Sandwich was pretty damn amazing. And the gnocchi is always a good decision.

  • Tariq I.Everything is cooked with so much butter, can’t taste anything else. Cocktails are sugar bombs, just taste like candy.

    55555 by Tariq I.

  • jiresellSeems a bit overpriced, but the service and food is good. Try the chopped salad.

    55555 by jiresell

  • Heba-I-am LOne of the best in Chicago! The pepperoni pizza is insane! The mushroom truffle is delicious but the pepperoni one is omg!! Great cocktails and super friendly staff (Clint the bartender is ❤️❤️)

    55555 by Heba-I-am L

  • Linda D.Note to self to order again...the Coccoli, Wagyu Meatball (with extra sauce for dipping), Roasted Beets, Truffle Mushroom pizza, pork chop, bomboloni with extra sauces :)

    55555 by Linda D.

    55555 by maureen J

  • Tony J.Excellent food and service. Prices are well worth the quality of food. Mimosa bar is great for several to make your own mimosa. Definitely recommend.

    55555 by Tony J.

  • Damon MA bit of a clubby feel (loud dance music with a large hip bar), but the food is excellent. The truffle gnocchi is incredible. Must try. All pastas made on site

    55555 by Damon M

  • Hannah AThis is one of the best places I have EVER eaten at. The squid ink linguini is FANTASTIC and deliciously made with lobster. The wagyu meatball is the size of a softball and is soooo delectable. 100/10

    55555 by Joe D.

  • Casey M.The scallop plate is really good, however, not very big. I made the mistake of splitting it so it's better as a one person only.

    55555 by Jackie Sachs

    55555 by Linda F.

  • Time Out ChicagoThe big plate of chicken: overcooked. The big plate of osso buco: almost overcooked. The cocktails are two sweet; one of them (the No. 4, a lightly tweaked aviation) is subtle and lovely.

    55555 by Kelly B.

    33333 by Barry O.

  • Kristen E.Great food. Service was rushing us & didn't engage w/ us at all. Typical River North vibe meaning a bunch of guys w/ too much $ & testosterone looking 4 their future ex- real Chicago Housewife.

    33333 by Kristen E.

  • Kevin D.The food is very good. I highly recommend the seared scallops or any of the homemade pastas. The service was fairly subpar however.
