This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants. I love the pastas which they offer. They do offer a-la-carte and buffet during the lunch. Service is incredible with friendly staffs !

Wish I had a picture of the food but I was so hungry and it looked so good that I ate all of it before I could do my review. Anyway, there is a new chef there (but nothing was wrong with the old one). The food was tasty as usual but I basically come for the prices which are... More

From start to finish, a great place right downtown on College across from Belk Theatre. Began with a glass of champagne and the seared ahi tuna in a ginger-sesame glaze. Girlfriend had the poached pear and prosciutto salad in a raspberry vinaigrette dressing. She loved it. I had the lobster ravioli...the real deal...in a wonderfully light lobster sauce with peppers.... More

My wife and I had dinner and breakfast here. This restaurant is part of the Holiday Inn. I had steak shrimp and lobster mac and cheese. The steak was cooked really well and was good quality meat. The shrimp was kinda tough and the mac and cheese was just ok. The servers was really nice and attentive that night. The... More

The ambiance of the restaurant and bar was very relaxing. The service was top notch and my waiter Luis was a real sweetheart. Lastly the food was very tasty and the... More

The 3 of us arrived at the hotel late one evening after a long flight from El Paso. Our food was excellent especially my seafood linguine that had great mussels and plenty of other seafoods.

Great atmosphere, excellent customer service, generous portions and delicious food can be found at Caffe Siena. I saw mixed reviews through this site and another site, but certainly it was worth the vist. The triple club sandwich, she crab soup, and greek salad were more than enough to feed four guests. Give it a try and you will not regret... More

We weren't really into it because my partner is italian and we haven't really had good italian food before in the US. Here we got a really nice salad and pasta offer from we could chose from the buffet .... More

Excellent ambiance and service, great location, interesting menu. Ate here on way to Belk Theater performance, easy walking distance. Wife had seafood crepe, which was delicious, lobster mac n cheese also great. I ordered filet and shrimp cooked medium, which came with lobster mac n cheese in a nice presentation. Unfortunately, steak was medium-well. Sent it back, but took nearly... More
