I was in the South Granville area in Vancouver, and stopped by Siena Kitchen + Bar on West 12th and Granville.
According to its website, Siena won was a recipient of the 2017 Georgia Straight GOLDEN PLATE AWARD in the Best Mediterranean Category. It’s a small restaurant with a very cozy feel to it. I was seated at a table facing the window.
I had their Linguine Con Vongole, which was pasta with wine-steamed local manila clams, chilies, garlic, and olive oil. The server cautioned that it was spicy, but when I tasted it later, I thought it wasn’t too bad. Maybe mild might be the right word.
Overall, a cozy little restaurant… It was quite busy the evening during my visit. .. However, I thought the server (I believe she was the only one working the tables) did a fantastic job.
Will be back to try some of the chef’s other items.
