Amazing experience, I highly recommend this place to anyone whether it’s for a special occasion or casual night out. Chef Warren Chow does an amazing job with his small and very skilled team to produce a special experience for everyone. Everything is made with love, artisan sourdough and cultured butter to house cured duck breast. I can’t recommend it enough. Not to mention the excellent service and the skilled bar team there. Go check it out!

been to Juniper a few times, have enjoyed for each time. Food is novel, outstanding and great value. They have awesome cocktails, having enjoyed the Juniper gin and tonic many times. Nice atmosphere, not too loud but has a great bustling vibe.
Will definitely be back

This was our second time visiting this restaurant. We loved our first experience so we decided to give it a shot for valentines dinner before attending a show at Rogers arena. The set menu main course of wagyu beef was great. Other than that we thought the other courses were not good at all and for the price of the set menu we were quite disappointed. Our server was great. The food we thought wasn’t a true reflection of the regular menu items... I will probobly go back on a regular night. But definitely not for a set menu of any kind.

I love the vibe, but the food has failed twice. Their cocktail list is quite extensive, a bit pricey at 15$ a cocktail, but i'll take it. The food, however, I have truly given this place a try, but I am never satisfied with their taste. Their risotto was very salty, nothing refined. And I ordered the Gnochi, and for $25 it was very disappointing. The gnochi was dry, and even though very visually appealing, the "pickled" beans it came with was just not a good combination. Shame because it is in a really good area.

Food was excellent, I was very impressed. It’s one of the best restaurants in Vancouver for sure. The mussels were plump, fresh and delicious with a fantastic sauce that I couldn’t get enough of, and the meatballs were amazing. The scallop entree I had was also excellent, I couldn’t guess at all the ingredients but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Along with my IPA sour cocktail which was equally delicious. Service was excellent. All in all I highly recommend.

We had such a great time at Juniper. Their cocktails are really yummy and definitely would come back just for those but what surprised me was the food was really great too! The pork belly appetizer was one of the best pork belly dishes I've had. The service was good and I enjoyed the atmosphere there. Would be a good spot for a date!

Food was very good, pricy but reasonably sized portions. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options. The stars here were the cocktails, however, and I regret that as a tourist, I won't have a chance to try more of them before we leave.

Outstanding service, beautifully crafted food and a local wine list that’s the best in the city. This is a really special place that’s equally perfect for date night or a business dinner.

Juniper was great for a friend's bachelorette dinner. The server/hostess was super friendly and knew the menu very well. She made great suggestions for food and drinks. Drinks were amazing, especially if you love G&Ts. The food was fantastic! Great for sharing. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

I have been a few times to Juniper's. It is in my neighbourhood and I bring visiting friends there as I can count on the consistency of great food, atmosphere and always friendly knowledgeable service. I am vegetarian and there always great options. I love supporting businesses in the 'hood and they deserve it. I have never been disappointed and have always left very satisfied on all levels.

They have recently changed their menu and it is a fantastic upgrade!

We started off with the gratin with the cashew sauce - delicious.

We also ordered several twisted takes on gin and tonics. These are refreshing.

Our dinner was rounded out with the bison and gnocchi. Both are excellent.

Food was nice, cocktails without ice were great (ones with ice had way too much to justify the price).

I don't think our server was really feeling his job that much, he was attentive but didn't seem to know much about the food being served. His demeanor made the women in our party feel pretty uncomfortable.

Not the place to celebrate an anniversary. The food was very good. Made a res. for dinner but we were sat in the bar area. Was not aware of the dinning area upstairs. We were never given the happy hour menu to look at, and rushed through. I would go back for the cocktail perhaps.
