    Server was awful. We mentioned we had been here multiple times. And I think that threw him off. He then never presented any meals and never told us about any of the ingredients on the plates. Disappointed.

    Was pretty disappointed in the food and experience. Not that many tables but the waiter hardly came by. He forgot to put in the bread but we weren’t able to follow up with him bc he didn’t come by so we didn’t get the bread until we ate our apps. The bread was rubbery with a super hard crust - unlike any focaccia I’ve ever had. My mom found a hair in her bread. Cacio was undersalted, fish and short rib were delicious, the cabbage was way too tough to eat. It was not softened at all - so we ate raw cabbage with the top “roasted” and it had a delicious topping but hard to enjoy that.

    I came here for my sisters 25th birthday, and they sat us in a semi private dining area where the music wasn’t too loud and we had perfect view of the restaurant. I ordered the cacio e pepe and the foccaia bread. The pasta was simple, yet delicious and the bread with the whipped ricotta and honey was to die for. Portions are on the smaller side but the bread fills you up so don’t order excess. Drinks were a hit or miss, the kitchen is still trying out new recipes don’t be afraid to order another! Our server was attentive, friendly, and gave us a great overview of the restaurant and the menu. I would definitely visit Juniper again for their Pri Fixe menu or to sit at the chefs table with an assortment of drinks.

    Been coming here for many years. Service is declining, waiter talk super quiet and I could hardly understand him. The usual detailed explanation of de prix fix dinner was pretty poor this time. The main dish had only 2 Scallops, with a little dressing: the dinner plate looked pretty empty. Nevertheless, the quality of the food was excellent. But i do notice a large decrease in the enthusiasm level of the team that served us.

    Sat at the chef's bar and it was a WIN! Got to watch an incredibly efficient operation...really impressed with the chefs and how they made everything look easy. Had the prix fixe menu and paired wine flight. My wife is vegetarian and did not have to settle or modify anything from the menu. It was built for her tastes...a rarity as most people think vegetarian means mushrooms and eggplant. We celebrated on her birthday and the staff were gracious and made our night a special one. Thanks Stephen and Chef Taylor (? sorry, wine flight after pre-dinner drinks) and company. Anyway...it was a fantastic experience, one we will repeat.

    We enjoyed Brunch at Juniper on Easter Sunday, although the wait time between plates was a bit long. The restaurant was very busy! It was a pleasant experience overall . I don’t think they do brunch very often, and it was not their usual menu, but it was certainly fun. The coffee cake was my favorite.

    The service was a little slow when we sat down but once we ordered everything, they brought out each course at the perfect pace. We went for Easter brunch which had a combination of items from their regular menu + special items. The crab bucatini and the oysters were delicious. I am normally not a sweet breakfast person but their Italian French Toast was incredible and ended up being my favorite dish. Each course had so much flavor that we cannot wait to go back for dinner!

    We chose to do a la cart and sampled a bit of everything. We had the foccaccia, oysters, grilled octopus, duck tortellini, braised short ribs, and cacio e pepe. All was delicious and the staff were attentive and patient with our order 1 plate at a time style of dining. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the show!

    We enjoyed our return trip to Juniper very much. The staff were very attentive (we sat at the chef’s counter) and the food was on point. My husband and I split the little leaves, the octopus, the sea bass and the saffron risotto. Dessert was the rich chocolate bodino and the affogatto. Looking forward to our next visit.

    We loved Juniper! The food was delicious. We ordered a few things, but our favorite was the braised short ribs and the cacio e pepe. The food was flavorful, yet balanced. The service was very good. We had an early dinner at 5pm and found the restaurant was quiet at that time, even though there were a lot of people there. It’s a beautiful space, well designed. A great place for a double date or dinner party.

    Juniper is a go to restaurant for us in Austin. We love the food, the ambience and the service while inconsistent is well above average of what you see in Austin. There were three of us for this meal - we all went with the prix fixe offerings - it seems like a good variety, lots of things to taste and a good value. I feel like they need to rotate some of the things on this option as they haven't changed in a while (seems to me). I will definitely be back.

    Entrance and interior design was the perfect date night feel We let our waiter know it was our first time and he just flipped the menu back and forth said which was the À la cart and tasty menu no recommended or popular dishes mentioned and when it comes to ordering drinks, we were handed a book and said drinks are in here no in-house specials or popular pairings with their menu noted .We ordered the tasting menu and it was really flat it relied on the fresh ingredients without complement them to their own taste. Eating everything honestly tasted like the base flavor every bite tasted generic nothing coming out at you like I should order this à la cart.

    The food at Juniper was exceptional, especially the Focaccia appetizer, Little Lettuce salad, and Cacio e Pepe. While the cocktails were average and the chocolate dessert lacked memorability, the impeccable service and ambiance truly elevated our dining experience.
