    Ordered the price fixed menu + beef carpaccio. The start of the menu was wonderful but the scallops and short rib were just ok and both dry. Deserts on Oris fixed menu also just ok. Made an ok martini. Not chilled and did not have blue cheese stuffed olives!

    The service as good, the staff was nice The food was slightly less than ok. The beans were undercooked, the bread was very far from authentic, the fish was cooked well but seasoned poorly. Overall for the price I expected something of higher quality. In the end it was on the high side for price and low side for quality. Not the best combination

    Came for day after Valentines' Day dinner! We were running late due to traffic and time miscalculation, called Juniper to let them know but since we were going to be ~30 minutes late, we had to be moved to a table in the patio from main dining room. Not a problem as it was a pleasant evening and not crowded. Our food selections were great. Only thing I had to have taken back was the mixed beets salad which contained grapefruit and my meds do not allow for that. Wasn't a problem to rectify but menus should be as specific/detailed to avoid unnecessary allergic/medical mishaps! Otherwise a nice evening celebrating Valentine's and we had a gift card to use too!

    Best place we ate in Austin…and that’s saying a lot because we’re foodies and packed all the food we could into a long weekend. We sat at the counter which was surprisingly cool! It was my significant others birthday and the chef came out to greet us and wish him a happy birthday. He went over the menu with us and gave us his recommendations. By far one of the best food AND service combo experiences of our foodie careers. The beef carpaccio was amazing, the Cacie E Pepe was phenomenal. And I can’t forget about the short rib! Excellent place to eat if you enjoy a great meal and great dining experience.

    What an awesome experience! We dined at Juniper once before, back when our niece was a hostess. Came back years after she left because the food was sooooo good!!!! Forgot my glasses in the car - the valet personally delivered them to the hostess for my table! Our waiter Gabriel was above and beyond both knowledgeable and helpful! Their entire staff stepped in and made sure our table was properly set, clean, and ready before each item arrived! Started with the focaccia and honey butter...Absolutely delicious! My wife got the beef carpaccio and I ordered the potato puffs. We actually fought over portions to share! They were so good we should have ordered doubles!!! Next I ordered the black trumpet and truffle risotto while Lori ordered the duck tortellini. The tortellini wasn't to her taste, but I found it excellent (it had a ducky gaminess she didn't appreciate - I literally drained the plate clean of all perfectly al dente pasta, veg cubes and excellent broth). We swapped entrees mid way thru without regrets! But Holy carp batman! The desserts were absolutely to die for! Lori's Chocolate Budino left her speechless. I chose the Zeppole with whipped mascarpone and apple butter.....Don't ask me where my hands drifted as I savored each and very bite of those apple tinged/mascarpone tender pillows of goodness....... Go To Juniper Now! You will not be disappointed!!!!

    Great food and dessert as well. Service always had our water glasses full. We took some time off drinks so we did not get to try any specialty cocktails. This place went on our list of upscale places to come back to. Btw this is not a very large list as upscale restaurants have been hit or miss a lot in the last couple of years in Austin.

    Ambience was chic and very inviting. The wait staff were very attentive and the food was artfully prepared. This is a lovely place to go for a special occasion! They even gave me a small bag of pasts, herbs and a hazelnut cookie as a parting gift, as we were there to celebrate my birthday. A really nice touch!

    Have been wanting to dine here for a long time. We ordered the prix fixe dinner in order to try a variety. Con’s: crudo was very fishy tasting, almost like it wasn’t fresh. A real shame because we love crudo and couldn’t eat this. Not the chefs doing, just a very fishy fish. The endive salad was overdressed which was a shame because it didn’t let the flavors pop. The risotto was mushy and overcooked and didn’t have that chewy texture that you want from a nice risotto. If we go back we will ask for salad to be lightly dressed and ask more questions regarding the fish. Pros: Chefs counter was fun but sit closer to the bar area and not all the way at the end. We were right at the busser station which was loud. Food had really nice flavors. Wine list was very diverse and pretty good pricing. The portions were larger than expected which was nice! The deserts were delicious.

    Recently, my wife and I chose Juniper to mark a significant occasion, arriving a touch early—a full 30 minutes before our reservation. To our delight, we were promptly offered seating at the kitchen bar, a spot we prefer over traditional table seating for its intimate and engaging experience, especially for two. The evening began to unfold with an introduction to the menu by our server. We were presented with two choices: the flexibility of an à la carte selection or the curated journey of a five-course service. Opting for the latter, we embarked on our culinary adventure. Each course was creative, sophisticated, with a harmony of flavors that was just perfect. I took the liberty of pairing our dishes with selections from the wine list, each recommendation more spot-on than the last, culminating in a beautifully crafted dessert that was both a visual and gastronomic delight. What truly set Juniper apart was the exceptional staff. Their attention to detail, genuine care, and seamless service transformed our meal into an unforgettable experience. It was evident that every member of the team was committed to excellence, making our night even more memorable. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Juniper, this time with friends in tow, eager to share another memorable experience. A heartfelt thank you to everyone at Juniper who played a part in making our celebration special!

    This is my second time going to this fine restaurant. The food and service were fantastic. I have no complaints excepted there was a table behind us that showed up already over served. This is not Junipers fault, and they did their best to ask them to keep it down, but eventually they left.

    To start, we decided to use the à la cart menu. We chose a couple items from each section. Overall, the place was lovely if you prefer more of a northern Italian style food . Let me prep this with. I do believe the quality of the meat pasta ingredients were excellent. However, the flavoring just wasn’t my thing I guess I should’ve research before heading there. However, I did want to give it a chance because I’ve heard wonderful things about Juniper. Please also note, I am 100% Italian please, Italians is a difficult feat in general. I wasn’t a huge fan of the food. There are some sweet undertones within the meat except for the octopus the octopus was delicious, so were the oysters. The pasta with the meat Ragu had a sweet undertone that I really didn’t like however, the pasta quality was perfectly cooked. The Cacio de Pepe was delicious however, it is very heavy on the cream. The focaccia bread was OK. I wasn’t a huge fan I was able to taste a hint of tapwater. The ricotta was delicious however, the honey was overbearing although if you have a sweeter tooth, I think this place would be a better fit for you. For me, I prefer a hardier saltier type of pallet. For me, I prefer southern style Italian, where I believe Juniper is more northern style.
