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

'Sienna' has an unassuming small shop frontage in Dorchester High Street. Who would know that a Michelin standard Restaurant would exist behind its doors ? Be ready to have your eyes opened at Sienna !! Whilst not cheap, the highest London West End standards are now available in Dorchester. The Restaurant only seats 16 and has a simple ambience, but...

We had lunch today at Sienna. We were traveling down from North Oxfordshire to Dorset for the weekend. I had read a couple of reviews and thought I we should try it. Well certainly not disappointed, we both had a lovely lunch. I certainly recommend Sienna to anyone who enjoys good food and value. Thank you for a delicious lunch.

A small unobtrusive entrance behind a bus stop in Dorchester belies the fact of a restaurant with amazing food. A mid week visit with friends to this intimate venue where the quality of food & tastes would be expected at a top restaurant in London. We were greeted warmly & served with professionalism by Megan. I ordered Squab as a... More

The quality of of food at Sienna defies the absence of the clientele that will soon visit and ensure a profitable business that this place warrants as the reputation spreads far and wide. Unabtrusive service by the first class staff and with a menu that could have been chosen to benefit and be on offer at any top class London... More

This very intimate restaurant (12 covers) is a total delight. The chef has exceptional skill in putting tastes together. The pares an and squab starters were both sublime. For mains we had risotto and grouse. The risotto came with a breadcrumb crusted soft boiled egg and the grouse was served with fruits of the forest- really unusual. But the most... More

The most intimate restaurant I have ever dined in. Extremely small space. After ordering our entree and mains we had no idea what we were in for. I have been to some spectacular 5 star restaurants around the world, but Sienna's has stood out from all the rest by far! Every meal served had a surprise touch to the plate!... More

We wanted to put this review on as soon as possible as we have just had the most delicious meal at sienna! We had the 6 course taster menu, and every course was amazing. A very clever chef who can put flavours together better than we have ever experienced. The lady who served us was great, and she explained that... More

We both had the tasting menu. Service from the young lady front of house was 1st Class and the food was superb. Great evening. You must go and this young chef deserves to be successful.
