Sienna On the Square Ratings and Reviews
I enjoy authentic Italian food and this was a disappointment. On a positive note, the service was very friendly and informative and I did like the ambience. I ordered a salad and had to get clearance from the chef to substitute gorganzola (a real Italian cheese) for Feta cheese. The pasta with seafood was the major disappointment. The seafood was fresh, however the sauce was way overpowering with too many herbs and spices and way too salty! I kept drinking water all night. I mentioned it to the server and she was honest (it's not her favorite dish either). I don't think I'll go back.
Went to Sienna On The Square for my husband's birthday. Spectacular Cuisine! Out waiter, Anthony, was spot on, knowledgeable with wine's that pair with our entrees, very attentive. Everyone was attentive and friendly. Will definitely visit again. Thank you.
We stopped in for dinner before a show, and we both ordered Summer Sangria. We were disappointed because when the drinks arrived, there were no peaches or strawberries in them even though that was in the description. Instead there were grapes and an orange wedge. We wouldn't have ordered them if we knew that.
My friend ordered gnocchi with marinara sauce, which was not on the menu. They were nice to accommodate her request; however, the gnocchi were burnt, not "scorched" as the preparation was intended. When she told the server, the server lectured her about what scorched meant and reluctantly went to the kitchen to see what she could do. She returned with an offer to remake the gnocchi but again cautioned that the dish was supposed to be "scorched," or the gnocchi could go in the pasta cooker. The chef wanted her to know that they would not taste as good that way. She ended up with the latter and said they were good. However, we both thought that the server was a bit condescending in how she talked to us. I was surprised because I've been to Sienna many times, and this is the first time something like this happened. Give them a chance, though, because their food is usually really good and anyone can have an off night.
Went to Sienna because of their excellent location in Market Square. First and foremost, the service could not have been better! Our server was attentive but not over the top.
The food was great and the wine and beer selections were sufficient. The flatbread appetizer was wonderful!
Would go back again.
Siena on the Square deserves a 5 rating but I downgrade them in several fronts. Wine prices are very high, finding 2.4 to 3.5 times price vs over the counter prices for the same wine. Second, although very good, there appetizers are way under sized. For $14, I thought the paltry amount of meat and cheese provided did not match the price. I can name several Italian trstaurants that give much more for the price with wine cost at half the bottle price at Sienna. Now the food was excellent. I had the bucatini with mozzarella stuffed meatballs. Just as good as the first time I had it. Wife had the same meal. Our friend had the buckwheat crab dinner but wasn't crazy about the appearance or flavor. Very unappealing look to the dish. Our other fried had boat pasta and said he would get it again. Finally, the table was the right size for two people and they crammed 4 of us in. All night we played games trying to find room for each dish and drink.
Everything is good. The food, the service, enjoyable place to dine. Only negative is the
wine pour is not very generous for the price you pay for a glass of wine. They also will
not bend in the kitchen. Wanted 1 house salad split. No problem to split the salad, just
will not do it for you. If you want to change anything about your meal...forget it. Absolutely,
no changes or substitutions. Not very customer focused as far as the kitchen goes.
This is one of my favorite restaurants, but it was a swing and a miss for both of us this weekend. My crab pasta wasn't bad, but had and odd-tasting sauce which had corn and red onions in it. Not much crab and couldn't taste it over the sauce. My friends risotto would have been really good if the red pepper flakes hadnt have made it too hot to eat, even with a glass of milk. She left 1/2 of it. At $75, it was disappointing. Plus the waiter had no personality. I will try again and hope it was just a bad night.
This was our first time dining at Sienna and it was wonderful. We do not generally get an appetizer but the appetizer special for that evening (mushrooms with a bounty of other wonderful ingredients) sounded to good to pass up and we were glad we didn't. For our entrees my husband had the Brazed Bore and I had the Buckwheat pasta dish. We highly recommend both dishes. The service was excellent as was the wine.
Not being a dog person, I was alarmed when we were seated at a high top table and directly next to us were 4 people and two small "lap dogs." Very close proximity, so I was concerned, but they ended up not making a sound and not being an issue. I was still surprised that a restaurant with $30+ entrées would allow dogs in owners arms at the tables. As to the actual visit, the service was very good, the food was pricey but tasty and there was a wine special that we enjoyed. We finished in time to get to the theatre, staff was very helpful and accommodating.
The restaurant has a great vibe, was very active and maybe even a little too noisy for a business lunch meeting. The service was good and the food (I had Shrimp Parmesan) was excellent. Sienna always has a packed lunch crowd so you will need a reservation. I would definitely recommend it.
It was good but not great I am afraid; service was GREAT but we felt limited menu choices; especially if you have any type of dietary needs. Regardless the atmosphere was good for us; we were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary before seeing a musical at the Benedum.
