Many of us need a spot to go to for lunch with co-workers or a restaurant to host clients. Right down the street from your office lies Siena at The Meritage Resort and Spa. Its savory, seasonal menu is full of exquisite flavors for every palate, ensuring one of the most delicious Napa Valley dining experiences without going too far from your office. Many ingredients are sourced locally and dishes are made fresh to blend both Italian and Californian influences

Chef de Cuisine, Shawn Montgomery, brings his food appreciation to every dish, blending his love for classic and rustic food with a modern style that relies on his background of working for top restaurants in San Francisco, Los Gatos and St. Louis. He knows that good food comes not just from the kitchen, but from the place of origin of the ingredients; he aims to bring seasonal, sustainable and local food to each guest in his dining room.

Shawn prides himself on preparing all food in the proper and classic ways — items are slow cooked and properly braised and all items are made in-house from specifically sourced purveyors that are at the top of their segment. Siena also offers gluten free, vegan, vegetarian and other meals for specific diets upon request. Groups from 6 to 14 and above can dine from a prix fixe menu inside the restaurant or in a meeting room at The Meritage Resort.

“I’m not reinventing the wheel of cooking,” said Shawn Montgomery. “I’m preparing dishes with better ingredients the right way, elevating the flavors to new levels.”

Siena is open to the public and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, plus offers a Sunday buffet and special menus for holidays and special occasions throughout the year.
