- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/18/2014Great food and service. I have to be strictly gluten-free, and staff were very knowledgable about gluten-free options.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice dining experience.dragonlady332Dined on 9/13/2014We had a gift certificate so we went for an anniversary dinner. Mussels for the app were very good. Rolls were also very good. maybe a sourdough type? GOOD! Shared a bottle of Riesling. He had the meatloaf, which is a dish he loves and this one did not disappoint. I has the seafood risotto, which was a bit disappointing. It was a bit soupy, fish pieces over cooked and had a pretty fishy taste/smell to it. It was ok. Dessert was the raspberry pie and apple pie. Apple was outstanding, raspberry was good. We'd go back, but I think I'd do some wine, or beer and a burger. maybe the meatloaf again. Prices weren't bad and the service was very good.Special Features:
- Fantastic food and viewMikeDined on 9/5/2014We sat outside on the deck during sunset. The view of the mountains and the sun setting was breathtaking. We had maple martinis and I had the Shepard's pie. It might have been the best Shepard's pie I have had. The service was great and we would love to come back here again.Special Features:
- DisappointingvtfoodieDined on 8/30/2014We are long time customers but won't be going back anytime soon. Slow service, small portions for the price and overall not the experience we are used to having at Junipers.Special Features:
- Good food. GREAT serviceJoanDined on 8/30/2014A nice night out. Food was really good but our service was great. Attentive without being in our face. We will most certainly come back. Thanks!!Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/15/2014A 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good food with a viewFrankophileVIPDined on 7/29/2014The 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.Special Features:
- ourfavDined on 7/29/2014Junipers continues to be our favorite restaurant in this area. They offer locally grown and raised meat and vegetables. Fine dining and a great waitstaff. Their Tuesday night special of burger and beer for $10.00, is our favorite!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Extreemly Pleased with Our eveningbbmetricDined on 7/18/2014After 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 BSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Fabulous Dining experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 6/30/2014We 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!Special Features:
- Bucolic view!GilreignVIPDined on 6/19/2014Great restaurant in the rolling hills of the northeast kingdom! Great breakfasts with buffet as well as hot dishes to order. Their daily specials and blueberry pancakes especially good. Dinner on the patio is very relaxing. Drinks and food were excellent. Service attentive.Special Features:

- Even In The Off-seasonNHnativeDined on 3/28/2014The 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Wonderful First DateOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 2/22/2014Junipers 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.Special Features:
- Food was excellent, servicebronzegdDined on 2/15/2014Food was excellent, service a little slow, but there was only one waitress and one bartender, and a full house, a little overwhelmed. Bar could open earlier for afternoon cocktails.I would recommend this to a friend.

- Dinner with a friendOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 1/29/2014The 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.)Special Features:
- Fantastic food, but the serviceJessDined on 1/24/2014Fantastic food, but the service wasn't great. Our drinks were empty for over 20 minutes. Luckily the meal was out of this world but we would have appreciated a more attentive waitress.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great foodOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 1/11/2014I 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.Special Features:

- Dining feedbackOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 12/31/2013The 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.I would recommend this to a friend.
