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

My girlfriends and I went to Caffe Siena for a pre-theater dinner. Everyone's food was wonderful! I highly recommend the She Crab Soup. It was rich and delicious! I followed the soup with the eggplant & roasted red pepper lasagna. It melts in your mouth and the sauce was rich with flavor. We were seated immediately when we arrived and... More

Thomas was my waiter in the mornings & he is incredible!! The staff was very attentive. I had the breakfast buffet one morning and there is a nice selection. I had the Steak dinner (on Thanksgiving) and it was cooked to perfection. Every meal at least one member of the upper staff came by the table to make sure everything... More

This is a typical hotel bar/mini restaurant that serves very good food. It is very, very crowded during happy hour but offers good drink specials. If you decide to eat here the steak and fish dishes are excellent and the lobster macaroni and cheese is DELICIOUS.

We used the Siena Cafe for a send off breakfast after our daughter's wedding. We had the private dining room. Our guests loved it -- cozy, private and the food selection was incredible. Great value

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.

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
