Siena Ristorante Toscana Ratings and Reviews
We are from Katy, Texas, but we try and go to Siena whenever we are in Austin. The ambience is good, and our server(s) have been friendly and personable. We agree that the crab fricassee appetizer is the best tasting option on the menu. We also have enjoyed the bolognese, the salad greens with apple, and the portobello mushrooms with truffle. The bread with boar's meat had a mixed reception in our group. Our waiter this last time, Paul, was very interesting and especially knowledgeable.
We really enjoyed everything from the food to the atmosphere. All except, the bread we ordered from the sides list. The rolls they bring out are amazing, much better than the other (we both didn't eat it). Fantastic pasta, red fish and wine list. Our server was so sweet and made the night even better. Highly recommend for special occasions.
I was throughly impressed with Siena! I made reservations for my wife and I as a Mother's Day surprise. The atmosphere is very cozy, classy and romantic. The food was out of this world. I would highly recommend the bruscetta with wild braised boar ragu. The wine list was quite extensive and there is surely something for everyone.
Very nice place for our anniversary. Waiter was attentive and knowledgeable.
Ordered an appetizer which included fried calamari, shrimp, and salmon. Shrimp and salmon were good, but the calamari was much smaller and cooked to a hard crunch.
Pasta was done well as were the salads.
Ordered the trout with shrimp as entree and it was good as well.
No room for dessert.
Very nice for date night, anniversary, etc.
What an amazing surprise. No idea why we waited so long to eat here. Came in for our 17th anniversary and realized we've been missing out. The food and drinks were fantastic and its a wonderful environment. It's so nice to have a pleasant surprise. Short Ribs and the Flounder special were excellent and the Gold Rush Manhattan was the best I've ever had. Can't wait to go back and try more.
My wife and I have dined at Siena many times over the years. This last visit was a different experience for us. It must have been Prom Night as there were many loud teenagers in the building. We sat upstairs for the first time and enjoyed the view. The food, as always was exceptional. The service was unusually slow this time and when the bill was presented, I was unpleasantly surprised. $21.00 for a double bourbon is ridiculous and my side dinner salad was 9 bucks. I feel that we really did not receive $106's in food or service and may have to find a different venue for future Anniversaries.
I was with 3 colleagues for a business lunch. We were all delighted with our food. Their homemade pasta cannot be beat. Their attention to detail has made it a favorite of our out of town guests and company leadership for the past 3 years. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for something special.
you know, I've been here 3 times and the other times were good, sometimes great. This time my pappardelle pasta was a huge lump in the bottom of the bowl. My husband's was over salted. I left very disappointed as this was a dinner to celebrate the hire of my newest executive and his wife.
There were 6 of us that celebrated a birthday with ask early dinner on a Sunday evening. The service was a little slow a the start, but ended up quite attentive. We enjoy the charcuterie board and the garlic rubbed bread for appetizers. Several of us had excellent salads and one person enjoyed a primo serving of pasta before his entree. The rest of use had various pasta dishes for our entrées. We ask enjoyed our meals immensely. The pasta and all ingredients were very fresh!
I have been to Siena before and have always had great service so hopefully this was an off night. Our server took 20 minutes to come to the table once our whole party was seated. Our reservation was at 7 but we didn't get our food until 8:40 and we ordered our food at the same time as our wine. We were there for a surprise courtiers birthday so that was all disappointing to say the least!
The food was excellent, as usual, but service was way off. We had requested a "quiet corner" perhaps when we made the reservation more than a week out. Our party was put in the room beyond the main dining area, by ourselves. Seemed too removed. This may have been the reason the wait staff was slow in getting to us and staying on top of what people wanted throughout the evening. Not sure if this was typical of Sunday night? The restaurant was not at all full. Short story - when we needed a little more time to look at the wine menu, the waiter disappeared for a long time, and by the time we did order and drinks arrived, we had been seated for 25 minutes - embarrassing as we were hosting family for a b-day celebration. Maybe just an inexperienced waiter - he seemed reticent and nervous. Hasn't ever been this way before, so we'll be back.
The food was delicious, as always. The highlight of the meal was how great our server was! I wish I knew his name. He was very attentive, but something little he did when our main entree took a little longer than he expected put the experience over the top. Our server offered us a complimentary cup of soup for the delay. It wasn't a problem since we weren't in any hurry, so we declined. Just by him anticipating a possible negative experience and asking to remedy the situation, my experience was great.
