My wife and I went to this small restaurant for dinner. Before the meal, a friendly and helpful hostess/waitress brought us some wonderful bread. My wife started with pork neck with pineapple, beetroot and sheeps curd whilst I had the salt cod which came with Caesar salad, Parmesan and whitebait. We both had lemon sole as our main course.

We had a really superb supper here. The food was excellent high end dining, skilfully prepared, with great attention to detail producing lovely flavours and textures and very good value for money. I have heard that they are hoping to achieve a Michelin star. The previous chef did achieve this and I believe the food is as good as his.... More

This is a small restaurant with bright lighting and the tables close together. The food was very good and the staff great but a shame about the ambiance.

Fantastic flavours make Sienna's brunch a real treat. Try the smoked salmon on cornbread with poached eggs - outstanding. Smart linen tablecloths, comfortable seating and tremendous service.

Firstly booking was very simple, my email was answered promptly. On arrival we were welcomed warmly. The food on the menu looked yummy and we were not disappointed. The presentation was perfect and the taste was, as one would expect, fabulous. A test of a fine chief is fish. Ours was cooked to perfection, how often is it spoiled by... More

Six of us ate here last night and we will definitely be returning. All our food was beautifully presented, and everyone said how good their meals were. I had the scallops for starters, followed by the goose then the Eton mess. The food was flawless. We have been to this restaurant twice in previous years and I would say the... More

If you want to go somewhere really special look no further. Marcus delivers on quality and flavour with his new menu. Recommend the Parsnip Tart, Skate and Artic Roll which were all much more complex than the menu descriptions suggested! All absolutely yummy. Lovely atmosphere in this intimate restaurant can't wait to go back.

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary on a Saturday night. We booked due to the rave reviews but were both underwhelmed. First the ambiance was non-existant. Bright lights and no privacy between tables. Romantic it isn't. The food was well presented and the fish well cooked but the flavour combinations did not work for us on the... More

This place only has 16 covers and is run by a couple where he does the cooking and she does front of house. There is either a tasting menu, or a la carte. Which ever one you choose I suggest that you take the recommended wine suggested for each item as I found them to be a perfect compliment to... More

Living in the Weymouth and Portland area always meant to try this restaurant. Well the combination of intimate environment, fabulous food and great service really mark the Sienna out, looking forward to visiting again.
