Caffe Siena Better than Expected

Usually I stay away from restaurants attached to hotels, but Caffe Siena is a good, reasonable restaurant close to Time-Warner Arena. Service was excellent, food was better than average, and I could park and walk to the arena. There are a lot of choices in the area, and I don't think you'll be... read more

This is the best aspect of the Holiday Inn hotel that it is located in, by far! Breakfast is yummy and dinner is good. The hot rolls served at dinner were tasty and fresh.

Buffet breakfast, average at best. The muffins were prepackaged wrapped muffings (like you find in a gas station). Would not choose to eat here.

Mmh So Good! .I work downtown and having a restaurant like this in walking distance is just wonderful. I have eaten the lunch buffet on different days of the week. The lunch buffet features daily food themes (Monday - Pasta as you like, Tuesday - Southern Comfort, Wed - Italian, Thurs - Latina, Friday -Cajun) in addition to the full... More

The french onion soup and the shee crab soup are both very good. The main entrees were just ok. I didn't care for the veggie paella at all. Lacked a lot of flavor. My husband had the chorizo pasta and it was better, but still nothing to write home about. Tons of other options in the area I would go... More

So glad we tried this restaurant. The tuna appetizer was seared just right. The seafood crepe is very tasty. The duck was the best I've ever had and we finished with a delicious Nutella crepe. Awesome food unique cocktails. This place is a winner.

We came here for restaurant week, yesterday actually. I should have listened to other reviewers, but thought I would give it a chance. What a waste of time and money. While the service was fine, the food was most definitely not worth the price. I had the eggplant parmesan appetizer, which was served very near to cold. I tend to... More

I live in Uptown Charlotte. I had never heard of this restaurant before. A friend made a reservation there for last night because our other choices were booked. I thought, "Oh, how interesting. How do I not know about this restaurant?" I didn't know about it because is it a HOTEL RESTAURANT. Like, you wouldn't go there if there were... More

Prices of food very affordable. Staff at the bar very nice. French Onion soup not as good as what I make but managed to eat it all!.. Trout was fishy tasting but not bad. Turkey wraps and salads and their dressing were very good. All other foods tried were very good; much better than I expected.
