    it is the same concept as Atria's. Family friendly dining. There are better choices, but this was fine for a group of 8 and a birthday party for an adult.

    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.

    It took our server three tries with the drink order. She brought the wrong thing twice and forgot the mix entirely for my dinner companion and had to come back and ask. What's the shame in actually writing down drink orders?

    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).

    Third time I've had lunch there, I take clients and friends to J-Grill because the menu is pleasing, the prices acceptable, the service is consistent. If it's not raining, sit on the outer edge (still covered and semi-enclosed). We usually come after 9 PM, pull up a bar high top, enjoy a couple glasses of wine and share the Fish Tacos (unless one of us gets greedy). Not too loud, but open with lots of screens to watch the events of the day.

    Even though they were moderately busy on a Saturday night, the service was really good, and the food delivered right on time. We were not rushed at all, even though we were the last diners in that part of the restaurant. The food was excellent, and the wine list offered great choices. The server was attentive, without being TOO much so, and very personable.

    Went to dinner here to catch up with a friend. The filet was excellent. I ordered medium and it probably could have been done another minute or two for medium, but was still excellent. The mashed potatoes were the best I have had at a restaurant in a long time and the wood grilled asparagus completed the meal. I was here years ago and was not impressed. I am so glad I gave it a second chance. Can't wait to return!

    In the early days of Juniper Grill, I just considered it another "mediocre" choice in the South Hills. The food and menu were just OK, and I was never really wowed by anything there. But in the past 6 months to a year, they really seem to have turned things around. They have excellent specials and the food is just... better. I with I had a better explanation, but whatever they've done, bravo! We saw at the chef's table a couple months ago, that was fun! Food was great then, too. Last night I had their halibut special - one of the best fish dishes I've had. Excellent.
