The food is always excellent at Siena. Depending on where you are seated it can feel a little crowded and sometimes a little loud. Upscale feel to the experience. Reservations can sometimes be difficult to get at dinner time.

My Grandson is working up in Taunton, MA but living in Providence, RI so while we were up visiting him we went to this restaurant that he recommended. Food was outstanding and service exceptional. Very relaxing place to enjoy a night out.

It is convenient if you are going to valet park at the restaurant and then take the car to park closer to waterfire.
