Juni - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
We have been to Juni several times before and agree that the presentations here of the terrifically flavorful food qualify as art. The plates are a thing of beauty worth stopping for before enjoying the taste and sensations of the food itself. We are always surprised that this place seems to be somewhat overlooked in the high end dining scene of NYC. It is worth a visit if you are a foodie in search of new alternatives. We loved the food at SHO and were disappointed when it closed so when we found Shaun Hergott had opened Juni we put it on our list immediately. Although the tab can run high this dining experience truly is an experience and one to be savored - highly recommended!
Juni is a terrific place. it is beautifully elegant. quiet. the food is adventurous but also approachable. reminds one of French to New American fusion. really good service with lots of room between tables. set inside Hotel Chandler which is a lovely place.
i highly recommend Juni. One of the best in NYC!
The fixed course selections were overly complex - not really a signature flavor for any of them that I chose except the veal. The vinyl seats were hot and I ended up stuck to them when standing up. Overall restaurant temp is too warm for a long sleeve shirt and jacket.
Well when we arrived we were the only people in the place at 7PM. Very quiet and nothing very interesting to look at. But special birthday dinner for my wife so we gave it a go. Hate to say but the best food was the bread and a red cherry jelly bean that was the first item brought out. After that the food was nothing to speak about. I know its all about the presentation and 5 star service which it was. But the taste of all the dishes were unusual, honestly quite weird and some actually gross. I wish I had chosen another place for my wife's big birthday. Left disappointed and with a big big bill to pay off. Won't go back. When we left only three other groups had been in during our 2 hour and 15 minute experience on a Tuesday night.
Choice of menu is fine, quality of the food is outstanding.
Very good serivce with a lot of people helping in the restaurant, but you never feel to much audience. The atmosphere is relaxed.
All in all a very good restaurant to experince. Although it cost quite a lot of money, but that's what you know upfront.
If you are interested in a fast dinner, with lots of food at a great price...this ain't it! However, if you are looking for an amazing dinner, artfully prepared, served by knowledgeable and attentive servers with wine pairings that are spot on...this is it! We had issues with our flight arrival (imagine that) and called Juni to tell them we were afraid we would not make our 9pm dinner reservation. Besides true empathy for our situation, they were concerned about helping us get a table when we arrived. As it turned out, we barely made it by 9:00, were warmly greeted and seated straight away. From the beginning, we new the meal would be special. The restaurant serves a prix fixe menu that can be either four or five courses and you can choose whether or not you would like wine pairing (do it...the sommelier is excellent). Besides the coursed servings, the chef has little treats between courses that are amazing such as black truffles. The dining experience is a little over two hours so don't go if you are in a hurry. Also, it is not inexpensive. However, for the quality and the experience, it is worth it. I can't wait to go back!
Booked Juni in UK prior to our visit to NY...the occasion was our 2nd wedding anniversary...we were not disappointed! Food was superb, I particularly liked those Palm hearts! Canapés were amazing too! Service was very good...attentive and accommodating but not over bearing ...and the anniversary extras were cute and much appreciated.
Juni Mules were fab in the cocktail bar beforehand too...all in all a great experience and well recommended!
We had a fantastic meal at Juni - we went for the 5-course tasting menu. Only positive things to say. The cocktails were incredible for a start. Presentation of the food was wonderful - the food itself but the crockery too. Some new and interesting flavours and combinations. I enjoyed every course - particularly the crab and the pasta (with truffles and crustacean sauce). The restaurant is formal yet very welcoming and comfortable - the service was excellent; attentive but not "too much". Would recommend for a special occasion or romantic date - not cheap but I think well worth it!
The inventiveness of the cuisine is mirrored by the cheerful creativity of its presentation. This is a superb restaurant in all respects. Sophisticated, quiet , graciously spaced tables, attentive and helpful service. And the food is superb, from amuse bouche(s) to petit fours , with superb dishes in between. I was surprised that this restaurant was not fully booked the last two times I dined there . It is certainly one of the best in the city.
Fantastic overall. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Staff are clearly foodies, and could describe and recommend dishes and pairings well. The food was excellent, from the first rate presentation, appropriate portioning, to the subtle favors and tastes. The ambience was quiet -- allowed for easy conversations and the creation of memories that endure. We will be back.
Very underwhelmed by this experience, especially for the price point. The atmosphere was odd, we had to wait 30 min past our reservation to be seated and our cocktails took almost that long to get made while we waited. I also had to ask for our server to come to the table multiple times. Felt like we were being completely ignored and the timing between each course was incredibly slow. Also found it very tacky that when we ordered a full wine pairing and they didn't pour the wine table side, they just brought over a glass that had already been poured.
It was a wonderful experience. The Service was prompt and friendly without being overbearing. The dinning experienced at Juni is one to be savored. Over the course of the evening, the diverse course choices allow you to enjoy many different and all freshly made haute cuisine dishes. I will definitely return
The food is the gem of this restaurant. Each dish is meticulously prepared to stimulate more than just your pallet, evoking memories and character. The service on the other hand is lacking character and creates a facade of fine dining that is easily attainable at cheaper and more inviting restaurants. You are constantly being watched by one of the staff and a majority of the people that come to serve you have tasteless uninterested faces. When it comes to dining at Juni, come once and never come again.
Attractive, small, comfortable, high-end dining room in The Chandler hotel on the border of the Garment district and northern Madison Square. Restaurant recommends stylish dress however some clients insist on looking like they just came in from tidying the garage (perhaps hotel guests who had just arrived from a long flight?!). PF menu of 4 ($98) or 5 courses. Very creative food choices, 3 per course. Outstanding prep and presentation. Not all choices necessarily to everyones liking. 2 wine pairings available plus extensive wine list. Wine pairing recommended but pours are light ($100 for the reserve which features small interesting producers). Service is friendly, professional, efficient. Overall very good experience but very expensive ($550+ for 2 incl aperitif, 2xPF, 2 wine pairings, tax, tip)...not a value venue.
