    A fantastic spot. Make sure that you walk around the gardens and property. The hors d'oevres were great, as was the service. The side dishes with my main entrée were very nice (roasted veggies, salad, mashed potato), but I found some of main courses in our group to be too "gilded" - - to much added cheese, too many added layers of fatty stuff that no one needs. The underlayer is high quality - - doesn't need so much added on. Perhaps they think this is what customers want. I got the signature chicken dish and it wasn't special - - chicken with melted mozzarella on top - - really quite plain, and chicken was not interesting. Ask a lot of questions before you order.

    The food at Juniper's is very good -- largely locally sourced, well-prepared, and nicely presented, and, especially with the included sides of potatoes or rice, quite hearty. And the dining experience is enhanced by the exquisite view, with the sun setting to the west. But our dinner was marred by amateurish service. Our curried soup arrived well before either our beverages or a requested water refill. The poor meal pacing continued when our entrees on top of (nearly literally as well as figuratively) our salads, and, while we were still enjoying our entrees, our server asked if we were interested in seeing the dessert menu. We have had better service in previous visits, and hope this was an anomaly rather than the start of a trend.

    After a long hard week of work, with an anniversary special date, I could not find a better place to take My Lady out. We had a fine meal from the gluten free menu because of our diatery needs, wine and drinks were perfect, and good GF deserts are hard to find but the deserts at Junipers are excellent. We had a good table and were able to see a beautiful sunset as we dined. The servers and all of the employees were great. Love the place and look for excuses to go back. Sincerely, A R B

    We were very surprised at the Gluten Free options, as much as the regular menu. My wife is GF but I am not, so we typically have little choices and less likely to have the opportunity to share meals. We never order apps but the GF Crab Cakes sounded appealing and they did not disappoint and were very good. My wife loved her meal, the Golden Spinach Quinoa Cakes were amazing and I ordered the Willoughby Chicken was very, very good. OK so we never order apps and we were full with the generous portions but the dessert just had to be tried to see if we could complete this incredible dining experience. We were not disappointed, they were perfectly sweet with delicate flavors, we were delighted. We will make excuses to get back the Junipers!

    The initial visit was fantastic which created that "gotta come back and try some of the other dishes" thought in the head. And so upon this last visit, we weren't let down. In fact it was even better. Junipers is a gluten-free persons ball of joy hands down. They have such a good offering of entrees, starters, drinks, etc. The organic nature makes it very appealing to those who are looking for healthy dinner or lunch. Not to mention the home-goodness that and exquisite culinary skills that chef Travis brings to the food. The whole experience was fantastic, very enjoyable indeed. The staff and setting are make it one of my personal favorites in VT alone. Highly recommended. See for yourself.

    Junipers was a very Vermonty, elegant yet casual, wonderful place to bring your wife, girlfriend or in my case first date to. It was guiet enough to carry on a private conversation and impressive enough to make a quality first impression. The menu was varied and the food enjoyable and perfectly priced. The service was attentive but not overdone. I would highly recommend Junipers for almost any ocassion.

    The veggies were excellent and my friends salmon was excellent. The filet was not what I would have liked but meat these days, in general, just isn't what it was when I was younger. I think truly Prime meat is a thing of the past. (The chairs are very uncomfortable.)

    I had been going to the area for years but never tried Junipers. I went with a group of 10. I reviewed the menu before I went and decided on Shepard's Pie. The waitperson listed the specials and I than wanted either the duck or Prime Rib. I chose the duck. One at our table ordered Shepard's Pie and it was heaping. Another ordered the Rib and it was huge. After seeing (and the aroma) of the Rib, I knew I chose incorrectly. The duck was terrific however, but I wish I went for the Rib. Everyone in our party besides me are regulars at Junipers. Our dinner took over 2 hours so I would not go there if you are in a hurry but if you aren't, it's outstanding.

    The food was really great, however, we were on the enclosed porch and it was very cold. I dined with my coat on. When the furnace heat came on, all you could smell was exhaust. The small heater in the corner was did not heat beyond a foot or so. We were very cold. The food and the service was great. Guess I will re-think my plans for the end of 2014.

    The Wildflower Inn is situated in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, on top of Darling Hill in Lyndonville. It is rustic and there are outstanding views. The dining was extremely good as well as the service. The restaurant is called Juniper's. If you like an older inn experience as well as an area that is relatively untouched and beautiful, you would like this restaurant.
