Juniper Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews
Checked out Juniper with a girlfriend last Friday. We were impressed with the cocktail menu and were very happy with our choices. I had a grapefruit mule - loved the citrus and ginger flavours. The Brussels sprouts dish was really tasty, as was the gnocchi with mushrooms, but the best part may have been the lavender creme brulee served in a flat dish so lots of surface area, if you know what I mean! The service was great and I loved the decor. Will be back!
Ordered the duck and if was delicious. My friends ordered the tuna and it was super fishy and the bison was not good at all.
Cocktails were amazing and I loved the ambiance. I would recommend this place for after dinner drinks and appies
Great and attentive service, fabulous food with a variety of veg amd otherwise options which was important tonight us. Our waitress was awesome and Michael, was fabulous. I disagree with any negative reviews on this site. We had a wonderful time and have no qualms about recommending Juniper to our friends and colleagues. Thank you for such a wonderful evening!
Unfortunately our dining experience at Juniper was mediocre, at best.
Drinks were EXCELLENT. I stuck to the same all night as it was delicious, and my husband ordered three different cocktails, each were delicious. The room is very modern and sexy & well situated. We were greeted immediately when we walked in and taken to a nice corner table.
The not so good:
We ordered three dishes to share, as the menu states the food is intended to share - great, our fave way to eat! The mixed meat/cheese board, the gnocchi, and the duck. The board came first after about 5min. Nicely presented, and a good portion size for a starter. We cheers'd, and started digging in. We were barely a bite into the board, when the gnocchi showed up - huh? I looked at my husband confused that 1) gnocchi could be cooked so quickly and 2) that they brought it so quickly even if it could be cooked that fast. About a min later, the duck showed up, and suddenly we had an awkwardly full table, and felt rushed to rearrange our eating so the hot food wouldn't get cold. Ok... we're pretty relaxed so we pushed our board aside and thought "we'll be very European and have it for dessert :p" Besides, when food is amazing, you can get over it. We dug into the food, and it was very boring. The predominant flavour was salt, and there was nothing exciting about the textures or presentation (ie. for food intended to be shared, it sure looked alot like two individual main dishes). Three cocktails in, we ordered the meatballs, which fell in line with the bland experience we had with the rest of the meal.
Service was also very ok. Not rude, but somewhere between disinterested (bringing our food so quickly) and inattentive (I had to ask for a new side plate to go back to our board after we finished the hot food). When we looked around, we noticed other service faux pas such as guests getting their food before their drinks. When a server understands the flow of a beautiful meal, they can prevent this.
Hidden gem in Chinatown, loved it! The drinks were great, and I recommend the meatballs and brussels - yum.
The food is nothing compared to restaurants like Burdock and Co or AnnaLena.
The service was exceptional and the restaurant had great atmosphere. Highly recommended!
My husband and I were looking for a nice place for dinner on a Saturday night. Good food, great service. Will be back.
A very pleasant surprise, the food was well presented, creative and tasty. We had beets and ricotta, patatas, gnocchi!! and bison. All fabulous, we will return soon. A well run kitchen doing a great job. Server could maybe warm up a bit, read the customer? Not bad service, just disinterested.
Creative drinks but not my style. Too herbal and too over powering. Amazing good though!!
the grill beat salad, the beats werent actually grilled. and i think the fennel in the duck main should have been cooked some way as well. the meat was good tho.
Great sharing menu, not overwhelming. And wonderful selection of Gin cocktails!
Took my clients from LA here, they had already heard good things about Juniper and we were not disappointed! They had delicious cocktails, a fantastic wine/beer and cider list and the server gave us a couple great appy recommendations which we devoured. Loved the "fries"!
The entrees were AMAZING! Very delicious, beautifully plated food. Nobody had a complaint. The restaurant itself is very chic and I loved the decor.
Great place to bring out of town clients as we could still have a conversation without yelling, and it was good for accommodating different dietary needs.
The restaurant was very accommodating to different diets (vegetarian, gluten-free) and the server made some good suggestions to help navigate through the menu. The food was very tasty and good portions.
Beautiful restaurant with an interesting menu! I've been before and would come again.
Our waitress seemed to hate us. We ordered one round, some food, and decided to go somewhere else. Asked her for drink suggestions - her go to answer was "what do you like to drink?" ....I guess we wanted to try something new but she wasn't a patient or helpful server. She was a little grumpy :(
