    During past visits to Juniper grill, I was not happy with the food. However, during this lunch visit I was very pleased with the brisket quesadilla and the service.

    Food was ok at best. $9 for the chip trio. Good but pretty expensive for what it was...chips and 3 different types of salsa. Salmon was a tiny (thin) piece and had a weird crust to it. Not as if grilled but more like if it was under a broiler. Corn bread was very good. While my waitress was good there was several times where other waitresses would bring the wrong items to the wrong tables. My appetizer went to another table, I got someone else's beer, etc. It's not like it was hard to get right as there were only 3 tables (counting myself) being used in our section.

    The staff was very friendly and attentive, including the greeter. I think the atmosphere was nice. The music wasn't too loud or obnoxious and the lighting was dim. Overall the value received for the money spent was reasonable. I'd eat there again.

    We arrived a little late but got a table across from the kitchen, which is a nice area but rather snug. Great waitstaff, difficult choices(all sounded good) but food was great although the chips with the salsa were way too tempting leading to a struggle to finish the main course. Plan on going back again

    the one thing i would suggues you change is the flooring in the bar area. i have seen many people slip and sometimes fall on that floor. i myself have slipped on that floor and i was wearing flats. not sure why that is an issue but it is an accident waiting to happen it just depends on who it will happen to.

    Varied menu,good food, pleasant service with a casual ambience. This restaurant is one of several choices when going to LIttle Lake Theater. Coming from Shadyside, it's quite a trek and over the years, it's been great to find a good restaurant practically next door to the theater. If I lived in the south hills, I'd undoubtedly label it a favorite neighborhood restaurant.

    Had a very good first time experience in this establishment and I expect to return. Food was diverse and prepared well. Was fearful of "artsy" cuisine, but was pleasantly surprised by different, not overstated, selections. Price very reasonable. Was surprised by the romantic setting. Only complaint if any was the high noise level. Noise seemed to be coming from every direction. However, it didn't greatly diminish the experience. The server was efficient if not enthusiastic, but it was fairly busy. Overall a enjoyable evening.

    I love fish tacos, so I often try them at restaurants that are new to me. The Juniper Grill's fish tacos were OUT OF THIS WORLD. The fish was prepared perfectly, the mango salso was interesting and excellent, and the addition of sour cream (not too much!) made the whole experience quite divine.

    This is a great date-night spot as the ambiance is quiet enough for conversation, but still there is a mix of guests that keeps the energy level there. We made reservations for 8:15 and were able to sit on time. The server was very attentive and personable. We saw her just enough to feel like taken care of, but not too much that she was interfering with our conversation etc. My filet was delicious and well-portioned and the Red Knot Shiraz was complementary. We did dig into the smores creme brulee also -- which really hit the spot. Overall - had a great time and would definitely return.

    I have driven by this place many times. I was excited to finally get to try it out. The food was excellent. I enjoyed their cornbread very much although I was surprised at first because I didn't realize their croutons were also cornbread. My ribs and chicken were delicious and I would get them again however I think I'll try the steak next time. The restaurant indoor dining area was full but did not feel crowded. The outdoor dining in the back looked very pleasant and had as nice a view as you will get away from the water. I would recommend this place to others.

    Sunday afternoon at 2pm is not the best time to try a restaurant, but Juniper rose to the occasion with marvelous big salads, fresh ingredients, and terrific service. It is much better than the usual South Hills fare, and we will return often. The menu has something for everyone.

    The varied menu has several excellent choices, fish tacos, salmon, ribs, etc. My wife especially enjoys the ribs (better than Famous Dave's) !!, the corn bread is exceptional as a side dish and desert. In general the restaurant is a local gem and place to go for something different for dinner, great service.

    My husband and I went to Juniper Grill for our 5th wedding anniversary. The food and service were top notch. I would eat there every day if I had the money. I would hesitate to take my toddler, though there were a couple of kids there. I just don't think a kid would sppreciate it so why not enjoy some alone time? The only thing I didn't like was the open kitchen. I do not enjoy watching the hustle and bustle I go out to get away from it at home. lol But all in all I loved it and already recommended it to people. I would definitely go back. Awesome food, impeccable service, totally worth the price (which is doable for a special occasion for my family).
