    We have always enjoyed Juniper, but after a few suspect meals of late, we entered with lower expectations. It is obvious that Justin has pumped back the energy and dishes needed to put this restaurant back where it belongs... near if not "on top" for Tulsa! Flash fried anchovy's on the ceasar were back. I got the pork chop special and it was super moist. The pork belly steamed buns were out of this world and need to be on their own food truck! Great meal.

    Juniper is our favorite restraunt in Tulsa. It is our first choice for out of town guests and special occasions. The brown butter trout is amazing and the accompanying brussel sprouts will change anyone's opinion of brussel sprouts. I highly recommend Juniper for a special occasion. The friendly personalized service makes you feel special.

    We celebrated our daughters 18th birthday and everything was wonderful. We had the Mushroom Fritto and Seasonal Corn Fritters both were delicious. Our family each order something different and shared bites. Here is the rundown from what we all voted as our favorite; coffee rubbed tenderloin filet, pork, pork & pork, rosemary chicken, grilled king salmon and grilled pork chop. All the dishes were very good and presented beautifully. Desserts we choose were the Coconut Mousse and Lemon Bars, yummy!

    I think you could wear anything to this restaurant and fit in. While we were dressed up, there were people in shorts and business attire, and the servers wear jeans. This relaxed attire adds to the comfort. The place is not huge or loud, which made it more approachable. The decor is nice, though. The service is friendly without being cheesy or overbearing. The food is not overdone or overworked. It is delicious and really highlighted the natural flavors of the ingredients. This is not a tiny plates restaurant, so the portions are good for a meal, but the food was so good that my Mom and I often found ourselves sharing on the small plates. I can't imagine anyone having a bad experience here. We loved it.

    Close to the theater and BOK arena, so good pretheater dinner not because it is worth travelling to but there is not really a lot of dining choices around the area. Not fine dining at all but prices get close to fine dining. Food and service are average but not worth the money.

    Started out as an upscale restaurant. Ate there a couple times early on & really enjoyed it. Back then i would've rated "fit for a foodie". Have read that didn't work for Tulsa which is always (everywhere) obvious to us as the extreme prevalence of denim. Admit the chef de cuisine apologized for my undercooked scallops & over cooked gnocchi. Our service was just fine and my disappointing glass of wine was happily replaced. We had reservations, obviously, & still had a wait. However, my partner (who never wants to patronize) had a perfectly cooked steak. There were little carrot bits on his plate that I picked off & they were delicious. Bad night? I just don't know. We don't eat out often so I was extremely disappointed.

    If you like the quality of food that can only come from a restaurant in the "fine-dining" category while enjoying your meal in a pair of blue jeans, this is your place. I had an espresso-crusted beef filet with a vegetable medley and duck fat roasted potatoes. The meat was cooked as requested to medium-rare, the potatoes were crisp and flavorful, and the vegetable selections complemented the dish superbly. Definitely worth a try.

    We have eaten here several times and the service and food have been great. Our recent experience was disappointing. Our waiter took our drink order and it took a long time to get a drink. We ordered our food and waited for an hour. Our waiter came by 1/2 way through the wait and said it would be ready soon..it was 20 mins later and no food. We told him that we needed to leave soon, for another commitment. Finally, the food shows up and it is "okay". In all of this, we were disappointed in the lack of communication. It wasn't until we asked for our food that we were told the kitchen was backed up. The manager never came by to apologize or acknowledge their mistake.

    I've been to dinner several times and had the duck two ways which has always been great. The fried green tomato caprese salad can't be beat. It's very light and fresh and would work as a light dinner with a glass of nice wine. Went to Juniper for lunch lunch and had the rosemary chicken which was amazing. I don't use the word outstanding or amazing regularly. I would not hesitate to recommend Juniper for a girls night or date night. The wine selection is nice and the service is always great. Just realized it would also be a great place for a business lunch as it's not too loud so conversation is easy.

    We are always amazed by the items on the menu. The coffee rubbed steak and Wagu steak were out of this world. And of course we couldn't eat at Juniper without having some carrot soup - one of our favorites! So nice to have dinner in a quiet place where we can visit with each other without talking loudly.

    We were in town for just one night and found this gem on Yelp... What a terrific place. From the moment you step inside you know you are someplace special. The ambiance is warm and inviting and the cocktails were delicious. I had a grilled watermelon salad that was fantastic paired with the trout on the menu. My husband had the coffee rubbed filet that was out of this world. The wine is reasonably priced. We wish we had such a great place in our hometown of Plano Texas. We will be back if ever in Tulsa again!!

    I met a friend for dinner here. We had one cocktail each that were good but not spectacular. But the carrot soup was delicious - really just about perfect. We also loved the Thai style gnocchi and the scallops special for the evening. It was an enjoyable dinner and we would love to return, but next time will try it for lunch because of the price. I will return again for dinner, but only for a special occasion.

    Juniper is high on my Favorites list. Although recent seasonal menu updates changed the gnocchi (one of my usual choices), the BLTFGT (fried green tomato) sandwich was a tasty lunch alternative. Of course, the Sweet Carrot Soup, presented beautifully with a swirl of chili oil and creme fraiche, remains the perennial starter-of-choice. Service was gracious, friendly, and efficient - in other words, nearly perfect.

    The food was delicious and service was prompt and courteous, had to wait a bit for the check or would have given 5 stars for service, my party had duck 2 ways, flank steak, and pork lasagna for entrees and all were wonderful. The flank steak was the best of the three entrees in our opinion. The white chocolate bread pudding and the homemade vanilla ice cream was exceptional.

    We ordered nine starters, entrees, & desserts and sampled each other food. Overall the food was bland & had very little taste. The cauliflower steak was outstanding! The duck confit was just okay but the duck in cabbage was tasteless. The rack of lamb was good but the lamb pastry was devoid of flavor. Cinnamon ice cream was very good. Very disappointed!

    We enjoyed trying something new sans kids for a mom's night out. The drink offerings were fun (a little pricey) with in-house made liqueur infusions. The farm-to table aspect was what piqued our interest in the restaurant and although the food was good, I wish there were a few more choices. I had the pork-belly "lasagna" and my friends ordered the scallops and rosemary chicken. No one was disappointed. Our waitress was great and we enjoyed speaking to the manager when he came by to ask is about our meal. Everyone was the right amount of attentive. Expect your bill to be on the pricier side but well worth giving it a try!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/24/2014
    I was told that Juniper is a stellar downtown Tulsa gem worth visiting. Our experience was subpar. Near our table smelled like an old garbage disposal (musty, moldy, and spoiled). The waiter was attentive, knew his menu well, and was on key with timing. Waiter wore jeans - $150 for dinner for 2. Several knats or fruit flies were buzzing around our head during apps and meal, very difficult to enjoy the dinner. We arrived at 5:30 to catch a musical. It was too bright for a restaurant of this kind. The food was very good, the service was very good, but the overall experience was poor. If I am choosing the dinner location, I will not recommend this place, nor will I go back. I entertain many clients and Juniper will not have our business.

    Another restaurant in Tulsa that offers outdoor dining that doesn't sit on a busy street. Plus, it's charming and romantic. I'm not really sure why we were the only ones eating out there. Weather was perfect and once they lowered the music, it was just right (although it was a weird playlist). The food was inventive and delicious. Definitely get the pork belly as a first plate. We had a couple martinis and some red wine. They were wonderful drinks, but much, much smaller than any alcoholic offering I have had anywhere I've ever eaten. $180 with tip made for an expensive evening. Very pricey but very good. It'll have to be a very special evening the next time I'm able to go to Juniper.
