Another meal out with my American colleagues last night and they brought me to Siena. I have been here before and was really looking forward to it again. We had cocktails at the bar while we waited for some of our party to arrive. The bar tender is very knowledgeable and very swift in making the drinks. For dinner I... More

After dining at Siena in the summer of 2014, we knew that if we returned to Buffalo in 2015, we would certainly eat there again. Be prepared for busy and noisy, but once you have the food, you will know why people flock there. Chef Jen does a superb job with her special dishes. Both the presentation and the flavors... More

Recently dined at Siena, and I say dined not ate. It is a nice experience. Our waiter Sam was perfect, the exact amount of attentiveness, very friendly, and knowledgeable about menu items and their presentations. The flat iron steak was tender and delicious. Items on the antipasti were varied and appealing. This place is tucked back just a bit from... More

Tuesday night and the place is packed. Gets a top rating by the Buffalo News and with this writer. Brick oven cooked food with an Italian flair. Bread basket, with homemade flat bread, olives and chunks of cheese are on the table just after water is filled. House wines are good $7.00, and good size menu with nightly specials. This... More

Unacceptanle in a restaurant of this calibre to charge $9 for a quarter (if that) for a glass of wine.

I ordered the lamb chops which were a special tonight. I ordered them medium rare. When they came medium well, the waiter took them back to the kitchen and the chef's response was "if I cook them again, they will come out the same." There is NO WAY in the world that the lamb chops were cooked to medium rare!... More

For the most part Siena is a very nice restaurant. When we arrived we were told there would be a 30-40 minute wait. Puzzling because they do not take reservations and there were several tables empty. We were a party of 2 and there were several party of 2 tables available. The bar was packed and not a particularly comfortable... More

I'd been here once before with a large party tied to the Fortune 100 company in the area I work for. The parking lot is small and I encountered no spots to park. Eventually I was able to locate a spot around the corner off of a busy Main Street. My daughter got my wife and I a gift certificate... More
