I do not give 5 ratings. The last one I think was 11 Madison Park in NYC about 5 year ago but this place hits ALL the right notes. We reserved on line via trip Advisor and pulled up to valet parking a couple of minutes early. They immediately took the car and we went inside to find we were... More

A friend recommended Siena Restaurant to us. We are very fussy restaurant goers and my husband is a 5 star Chef. We own 2 restaurants. So we wanted something special. I ordered the Saltimbocca and my husband the Veal Scaloppine. To start we ordered the charcuterie appetizer, I forget the name. It was great, and very generous. When our main... More

We are staying in Providence this weekend for Waterfire and wanted to enjoy the restaurants on Federal Hill. We picked Siena and were very pleased. Our waitress, Heather, was polite and friendly and very helpful in making our choices. We enjoyed great cocktails, beautifully crafted by Jackie, who we learned is fairly new to the restaurant. Very much enjoyed the... More

The food is just average. They need to change the menu up. It is the SAME OLD 6 string beans with A taste less piece of polenta on your plate included with your entrée. Not a place top go out of the way for.

The three of us agreed that dinner here was perfection! We each had salad to start - two of us had the salad that was an appetizer special - grilled corn and many veggies over field greens with toasted quinoa and a wonderful dressing . The other salad was a Caesar that came loaded with large toasted croutons and shaved... More

My husband and I recently were in Providence to see Water Fire. We were told that the Federal Hill area had some really great restaurants. We did not realize until we got there that Sienna was rated one of the top places to eat in Rhode Island. We had a wonderful server and dinner was delicious. Their calamari was made... More
