Great food, smaller portions
We ate at Juniper for a graduation celebration and were quite pleased. I ordered the Grilled King Salmon and it was delicious. I do think there could have been more vegetable with this dish, the greens were sparse and I left wanting more. My husband ordered the steak andhe was happy. Being a meat and potatoes guys he was bummed to see green beans on his plates, but they were seasoned well and cooked properly. I also had the lemon martini and it was AMAZING!

Excellent for Special Occassion
My wife and I went to Juniper for our anniversary this year. We had an incredible time. Every bite of the food was incredible. We both tried a cocktail as well as were very impressed. Their selection of infused liquors is quite impressive and very well done. I highly suggest the Nut and Honey Old Fashioned. We had the pork belly for a starter and it was incredible. The duck two ways and the salmon were also among the best I've ever had. I will say that the cobbler left a little to be desired, but it is more of a preference of mine (the apples were a little crisper than I prefer in a cobbler.) Service was very attentive and friendly. I will definitely be heading back to Juniper.

Excellent food experience
We would call this restaurant a "diamond in the rough". Although the location and exterior of the building gave us concern, the interior was lovely, the food superb and the staff attentive. Both the shrimp and trout dishes were cooked to perfection, the carrot soup was sublime and the homemade apple/pear cobbler topped off a perfect meal. When making the reservations I asked for a quiet intimate table to celebrate our anniversary which was provided. A "happy anniversary" card signed by the entire staff was given to us as we left - what a nice touch and a perfect final finish to a lovely evening! We would go here again most definitely!!!

Great food and service. A very enjoyable experience

Go to spot
This has become my wife's and my "go to spot". We love to try new restaurants, but we always make it back to Juniper. The service is superb. My wife loves the duck, while I have sampled a lot if the menu and have never been disappointed.

Gormet fare in the heart of Tulsa
Juniper was a great experience! The specialty martinis with house infused liquor are fun! Try the Bloody Martini! Spicy and delicious! The meal was second to none. The salads were unique and tasty! I had the filet and it will melt in your mouth! My daughter had the salmon and was very happy with it. The asparagus and cheese tacos that came with the salmon were really good and something very different! Unfortunately we were too full for dessert, but next time I think I will go just to have a martini and dessert. One of the unique aspects is that they use all locally grown and raised veggies, meat (except for seafood) and dairy. Try Juniper you won't be disappointed and you will be supporting our local farmers, ranchers and dairymen!

We love this place. Perfect
We love this place. Perfect for dinner before a show at the PAC. New summer items on menu. Service is always great. Great addition to dwntown

Great food & service
Everything was fantastic! Food was very tasty. Service was friendly and attentive to details. Lighting could be slightly adjusted (maybe put on a dimmer?!) for a more romantic setting during late night dining.

Enjoyable evening at Juniper!
I highly recommend Juniper Restaurant - great food, great wine list and the wait staff is very attentive, but not hovering over you....
and it is right around the corner from just about anything going on in downtown Tulsa.
6/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
a tad bit disappointing
The menu looks great. So many possibilities that it took a while to decide. Unfortunately some of the food fell a bit short of the description. The hash brown potatoes were a bit too salty and a bit too greasy. The eggs benedict looked more hard boiled than runny and the French-press coffee was like dishwater. I'm not sure why. On the other hand the biscuits and bacon were totally scrumptious and my friend who had the brussel sprouts said they were outstanding as was her Creme Brulee.
Our wait person tried hard, though her timing was a bit lacking. I hope the small glitches can be fixed, I think there is a lot of talent in the kitchen.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great downtown spot!
Everything about Juniper was very good. My husband got the "Duck two ways" and said the shredded version may have been the best duck he's ever had. Service was also very good. We will definitely go back.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to celebrate!
I took my fiance here after proposing to her in downtown Tulsa, and it was a great experience. The staff were so nice, they gave us a romantic spot away from other tables, and they made us feel very special. It is a bit pricey but the food and dining experience were worth it!
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pork Belly Heaven!!!
Pork Belly "First plate" was fantastic, a must have!
Grilled Tuna with orange, fennel & beet salad, polenta, asparagus & hazelnut pesto. Five Stars!!!
Pan Seared Scallops, prosciutto, melon & fennel salad, spicy orange & red pepper glaze. Five Stars!!!
Mango Fuego Margarita, Six Stars !!!
The only negative was the noise level, made casual conversation hard, and ordering difficult.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've never had any less than a good experience with Juniper. The servers are friendly and seem truly interested in making their patrons comfortable and happy. The food is consistently high quality with prices much lower than their equally outstanding competitors.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Is there better in Tulsa
Have eaten at Juniper twice on business trips with clients. Each time the service was excellent and the table enjoyed the inventive menu which would compare well in any city around the country.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first time there and the food and service was exceptional. I love that they use as much local food as possible.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a fun evening of great food, unique cocktails, and high energy atmosphere.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Juniper is one of my downtown
Juniper is one of my downtown favorites. The menu changes, so plan to go back often.

Always a good dining experience
I am very partial to this restaurant. The food is always well prepared and delicious . The scallops were beautifully done, the brussel sprouts in brown butter are illegally good and addictive, the staff is cordial and make good recommendations. This restaurant could certainly charge more for the excellence of their food- I hope they don't!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We got first-time reservations at Juniper on relatively short notice. The seating was prompt. The food was terrific. Our server, Joshua, really went the extra mile, actually splitting two entrees for us so we could share them. The brown butter trout was extraordinary. The gnocchi could have used a little more pop, but was good nonetheless. We made the decision to order the fresh baked cobbler and it didn't disappoint. The wine selection was nice and Joshua was well informed as to the characters of the different wine offerings. Overall, the meal was superb and, while not cheap, was not as expensive as I would have anticipated. Definitely one of the best options in Tulsa.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The experience was outstanding. From the friendliness of the hostess to the menu selections and the wait staff. The atmosphere was perfect for either a intimate dinner for 2 or a large table to celebrate an occasion. I highly recommend Juniper and will be returning myself!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Tulsa restaurant
Upscale yet casual/relaxed feel...like being in NYC. We both had the special: sea bass with lentils and bok choy---absolutely wonderful! Shared a starter: Tomato and Okra Potash...again outstanding! Our server answered our menu questions and took very good care of us, other than forgetting to bring the wine early on...but not a big deal. Nice to have such a excellent restaurant option for late dining, too.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had heard good things about this place and decided to give it a try. I was very impressed with the experience from the time I walked in until leaving. Service... amazing. Food... Even more amazing.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
peach menu was fresh and fantastic
great experience and showcases tulsa's talent and diversity.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ate there on a Friday night with a good friend. Drinks were great, and our Waiter was knowledgeable about both the food/drinks/and wine pairing. Energetic environment, but never felt loud. Food was wonderful. I had scallops, and my friend had Porter Peach NOLA BBQ shrimp. Great interesting use of contrasting flavors (sweet/spicy/tart) in both dishes. Then finished with the best peach cobbler I've ever had.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
No surprises; consistently wonderfu
You can count on the service and food at junipers to set the bar for other Tulsa restaurants. We never worry if we take friends or family to dinner. We have never been disappointed.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love love Juniper
This was my 2nd time at Juniper and things are still hopping there. We love the bar and the bartender was really helpful. Hospitality staff is perfect. Our food was top notch - my duck was cooked as it should be. Starters were fabulous. I will go again!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best restaurants in Tulsa! So glad that we chose to dine there for our 46th anniversary!!!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
My taste buds dance
This was not my first experience dinning at juniper. It is probably my most favorite restaurant in Tulsa. I have been very happy every time I've been there!! The food is AMAZING!!! the servers are always super nice too!! I will defiantly be back soon!!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
night to remember
They also ran out of the dinnerspecials. When I didnt care for the soup the waiter offered to replace it with another item.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perhaps the best in Tulsa
This place scores an A+ for menu originality. The food is artfully prepared and there is something to interest everybody. My wife and I Iove the atmosphere and always try to arrive early to have an original pre-dinner
cocktail at the bar. The waitstaff are very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Great wine list and suggested wine pairings too! The only thing that could be improved is a few more Vegetarian selections but hey, this is Tulsa. The Vegetarian selections that they do have are excellent!

Wonderful Place for Special Occasio
My dearest friend took me to lunch for my birthday and as we are both foodies, I suggested Juniper cause it was a place I had wanted to try Juniper for some time. I immediately took to the place because of our waitress Bonnie, who immediately asked my name and said she remembered me from another restaurant she had worked at. Immediate hit for me when the wait staff remembers you! The lunch was lovely 1) ambience, 2)food 3) wait staff all top rate. We had the special (Salad with Scallops) and the Oklahoma tendeloin sandwich. Both excellent and we ordered the Cobbler (apple that day) at the start at the meal (requires 20 minute in advance) and my friend and I shared it. Thanks to the wonderful waitress Bonnie for making it special.

Food is different & innovative. Great service! Looved the lavender bread pudding!

Quiet Tulsa Morning
We thought everyone must have still been hungover, as the restaurant was empty for quite sometime. Being used to the Chicago brunch scene, it was actually delightful to be in a quiet space for Saturday morning brunch. Relaxed and tasty. We decided to overlook the few grounds in our French press and my over cooked poached eggs, because when they were corrected it was delicious! They could use a few pastries as a precursor to the meal. Overall, we enjoyed it and the service was fantastic. They were quick to fix any issues, and our server even managed to help pick our first dance song for our wedding by putting the right tune on. A Midwest charmer.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Junipers was recommended by a friend. The restaurant exceeded all my expectations. Easy to find, great service, and the food was was delicious.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We opted for wine from their plentiful by-the-glass options. I thought my husband's syrah was better than my zinfandel, and when I said as much when asked, she replaced my glass with one of the syrah at no charge. Nice!
I had the root vegetable ribbon salad and the gnocchi with sage pesto, and my husband had the frisee salad and the trout. All of it was very good, but I really liked the gnocchi. It was chewy with a caramelized exterior, and with the sage pesto it was delicious. For dessert we had the apple-pear cobbler, with a shot of the house-made kahlua while we waited for the cobbler to cook. Both were very good.
The ambience was upscale-hipster and comfortable. The service was competent and friendly without being buddy-buddy.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Juniper was an unbelievable experience. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. And the food was exquisite!! Wow! Wow! Wow!

Juniper Always Delivers
Juniper always features creative, delicious food served by an attentive staff. Occasionally we noticed our waitress trying to take on perhaps one too many tables but in her absence the manager made sure that we were doing well and even took our dessert order.
Every appetizer, salad, and entree uses only the very freshest ingredients. At our last experience at Juniper, every item came out exactly as it was described in the menu. No disappointments at all.
We arrived at 5PM. The waitress asked us if we had another committment later in the evening. We answered that we needed to be at the Tulsa PAC at 7PM for the opera. She paced all the dishes perfectly and we were right on schedule.
A very nice restaurant and we will certainly return.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bar tender great! Offered
Bar tender great! Offered great suggestions. Food was outstanding (my first dining experience). Wait staff even asked if we were attending a concert that evening so our food service could be served in timely manner. We will definitely come back.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great venue for a business
Great venue for a business lunch/meeting. Food was fabulous!!
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am a repeat customer and really enjoy the weekly menu additions based on a "theme" or locally available ingredient. The menu additions are always great dishes, and every time I dine at Juniper I get to explore something new.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is always spot on
I've never had a bad meal here. If I'm feeling more mainstream, the regular menu provides me with options that are familiar and well executed. However, if I feel a little out of the box, the weekly themed menu gives me the option to try something a little different. Either way, this is one if my favorite places in Tulsa to share a great meal with friends.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Redemption---Back to Excellence!
If anything, this visit was better than any previous good experience and left us relieved and reassured that this is a fantastic restaurant! The attentiveness of our server was spot on, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was warm and cozy. I'm glad that our previous experience was what we hoped it was-- because now it's forgotten.
Thank you Juniper for the great experience. We'll be back.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Carrot soup was delicious. I ordered the chicken and my husband ordered the scallops. Both dishes were delicious. For dessert we ordered the apple cobbler for two. The cobbler came with two scoops of vanilla ice cream and it was wonderful. We also ordered wine with our dinner. We were able to order a half bottle. The service was excellent. We really enjoyed the evening. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

First time for Brunch
I have enjoyed taking friends and business associates to Juniper for several years because it never disappoints. Saturday was my first time for brunch with friends. To a person, we loved it! The biscuits were so amazing, porkbelly/eggs benedict delicious and the omelet fabulous. With every bite we were trying to discover the distinct herbs and spices, cheeses, etc. that made it so unique and wonderful. The bloody mary's were spicy - just the way we wanted them. Juniper is my new favorite brunch spot!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very Good Food - Best in Tulsa?
Most often, excellent salads foreshadow a great meal. Therefore, when my dandelion and proscuitto was so good, I knew we were in for a good dinner. My son's gnocchi sautéed after boiling, but still retained the all important melt-in-your-mouth texture. My wife's sea scallops with pork belly dish were delectable. My pork chop dish was the only shortcoming; while the pork chop was fine, but the sweet potato gnocchi underneath were smashed by the weight of the pork chop. The wine list is decent and is fairly priced about 2x retail.

The fall lamb special is exquisite.
The fall lamb special is exquisite. Great servers. Drinks weren't quite perfect but the bartender adjusted and it was great! Always enjoy Juniper, lunch or dinner.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good service, friendly staff, good food- a reliably great dining experience. The brown butter Brussels Sprouts are incredibly delicious , as is everything else. We are big fans. Cooper, the bartender, Greg, our favorite waiter, and Heather, the manager make Juniper special for us and they don't stint on the good will, service and friendly professionalism on any of their customers. We can go elsewhere to mix it up but we always go to Junipers for its reasonable prices and great food, service and ambience- and take friends with us!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice downtown dining
Pleasant service varied menu and well priced wine list that is not extensive but for the most part 2x retail which is a reare find these days. All wines are well chosen to compliment the menu
