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

'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
