    Reservations for 4 people, 2 from out of town for Saturday September 13th. Seated promptly with menus, Chandler was our server. Wife and one of our guests ordered the Amish chicken, one the flank steak and I had barbeque. My wife's brother did not like the marinade on the steak and sent it back, replaced by a burger. Chandler and the manager could not have been more accommodating which was appreciated. My dinner and the chicken were very good. This was our 5th or 6th experience at Juniper and we will return.

    As someone who typically dines in the South Hills, I was concerned about finding a great local spot to have a meal with my out of town in-laws. However, after checking out reviews for Juniper Grill online, we opted to head there way (close/convenient to their hotel & eclectic menu) and the restaurant did not disappoint. Great atmosphere, delicious food (in-house smoked brisket & the trout was amazing). Overall, very please with this restaurant and the next time we are up north, this will be our first choice to stop at.

    My husband and I went to Juniper Grill on a Saturday evening (with reservations) with another couple. The food was interesting and tasty and the service was attentive. It was a little too dark and loud for us, but we still had a good time and enjoyed the restaurant. We'll probably try other restaurants before returning to Juniper Grill, but we would return.

    Arrived about 7PM for dinner on a Saturday night. By 7:30 they were sold out of several dishes. Yea! Good for them. We made alternate selections and they were just ok. If this is an example of how little is in stock in the kitchen, you better get there early!

    The food and service here is excellent! The only downfall is the music seemed to me a decibel too loud, where you have to talk loudly so the other person across the table can hear you. But the overall atmosphere is great. The lighting is dim so it feels intimate. I think this is a great place for a dinner date.

    We love outdoor dining, but not so much at Juniper Grill. They have a definite fruit fly problem outside, which colors the whole experience. The food didn't even seem to taste as good as it usually does... We won't go back for awhile, and if we do it will be indoors

    The smell of the wood fired grill immediately lets you know you're in for some great food. I loved the Arctic Char special and my wife really enjoyed the BBQ brisket. The grilled romaine salad was also really special. Excellent beer list and I really appreciated their support of local brewers. My wife had a Lindeman's Framboise and it was a nice touch that they added a fresh raspberry to the bottom of the glass. Can't wait to visit again!

    Restaurant was recommended by a friend. Took 2 customers there for dinner. 2 of us ordered the salmon with rice (daily special). The salmon was slightly undercooked and the rice even more so (actually crunching on some rice). Server was not very well educated on the menu. I'm disappointed as I enjoy taking customers from out of town to local restaurants, not chains. Unfortunately Juniper Grill is off that list.

    We were staying at a hotel in Cranberry Township and used Open Table to identify Juniper Grill for dinner. We had salmon, a Cajun mahi mahi sandwich and chicken tortilla soup. Our meals were prepared perfectly. Our server, Kailyn, was pleasant and attentive. The owner stopped at our table to ask whether we enjoyed our meals. The décor is comfortable and relaxing. Outdoor dining is available. We recommended Juniper to all of our friends and family who live in the North Hills section of Pittsburgh over the next couple of days. We highly recommend giving it a try. We will return on our next visit to the area.

    My two 4oz filets came with 4 asparagus and my husbands brisket came with potatoes. Our sides were too little to share. Brisket was dry and lacked flavor. My filets were coated with expresso, which did not compliment the flavor. Our wine was $50 and I found it at the state store for $18. Not worth it.

    My wife and I dined in the open-windowed porch area of the restaurant on a beautifully mild evening on the last day of May. The server was attentive, knowledgeable and proficient in the explanation of the menu. My wife's salmon was prepared perfectly and the vegetables were very tasty. My barbequed ribs were better than those I had experienced in Memphis!! The spaghetti squash & zucchini combo was sauteed perfectly.

    Was looking for a new dining experience not a chain to celebrate our 26th anniversary also needed a good gluten free menu for the wife one that had real food not just regular menu items minus the gluten. Found the Juniper Grill online, read the menu sounded good,read reviews they were positive Made up my mind made a reservation noting the anniversary and the need for gluten free. Arrived, we were seated promptly the wait staff were all very attentive and aware of the occasion and special needs. Ordered an appetizer and our drinks everything was brought very quickly ordered our entrees they also arrived very quickly I had the brisket and pork combo nice size portions great taste wife had the pork enchiladas also very good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/19/2014
    I was looking forward to dining at Juniper Grill but the experience wasn't that great. The floor plan of the dining room is a bit disjointed and we were sat at a table that was oddly placed. The side room looked more open and inviting. Our server was a bit gruff when we said we needed more time to look over the menu as we were friends who were catching up. I ordered the rib and chicken dinner and while the ribs were good the chicken breast was just room temp and tasted like it had been pre cooked. The server then refilled my half full iced tea instead of bringing me a fresh one. Over all for the price and expectation I was just underwhelmed.
