Known as a romantic spot where people can enjoy the lovely patio for al fresco dining, Siena Bistro is a "secret" to some, but those who can find it say it's like entering another world. To unwind and get away from the craziness of the hectic world, the staff Siena Bistro welcomes customers with a big hello and a warm smile, because after you’ve visited us just once, you’re already part of our family. 

Ideal for Couples but Great for Groups Too!

Known as a romantic spot where patrons can unwind and interact on the charming patio for al fresco dining, Siena Bistro attracts couples of all ages, as well as groups for birthday parties, baby showers, school graduations and other special occasions. 

Inventive Cuisine

Serving a wide selection of salads, and pastas are offered with delicate, yet mouth watering flavors. Our friendly staff will help you decide between house favorites such as our fresh salmon, sole almandine, Bourbon Stout Braised Short Rib Dijon-glazed salmon served on a plank of cedar wood and our unbeatable beet salad.

Well researched California and Mediterranean wines, are the perfect accompaniment to any meal. Brioche Bread Pudding, Warm Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sea Salt Gelato, Tiramisu or any of our house-made desserts are always a perfect ending to your dining experience.

Hope to see you soon at the Bistro!

Client's Review

Our customers aren't afraid to tell the world that we've done a great job!

We chose to eat here for Christmas Eve. There were several tables of regulars dining at the same time, so the restaurant overall felt like a warm family dining room. We were treated as well as any regulars.

The food was delicious, with several interesting options for vegetarians beyond just pasta, and a more complete menu than most restaurants offer on Christmas Eve (no prix fixe menu). The braised short ribs with bourbon stout glaze were rich and delicious, as was the veggie risotto.

A must-have is the cheesy garlic bread - outstanding! Also, the standard garlic vinaigrette salad dressing was delicious and well suited to the salad.

We had a lovely celebration and are looking forward to our next visit
