Was very nice as usual! The menu was different then last year, the lamb was very good along with the salads we tasted. The wine list was lovely and I also Love the honey bee cocktails. Service as always was the best we find in DC when we visit. Made the evening very enjoyable.

We were happy to return to Juniper on our visit to Washington, DC. The crab cakes were tasty and this was a generous sized appetizer and therefore great for sharing. The other appetizer for our table was grilled octopus with a pretty and flavorful paprika aioli. My salmon with lentils was perfect with a crispy finish and delicate interior. My desert was a stand-out with sweet corn ice cream with a garnish of crunchy freeze dried corn kernels, a small piece of spoon bread and then a small pyramid of basil and black pepper pannacotta.

Our overall experience was disappointing. Juniper is the flagship restaurant of The Fairmont Georgetown, and says it features local farm-to-table selections. Menu options were fairly limited. I had the Applewood smoked hanger steak, and it was fine, but very heavy on the 'smoke' and not especially delicious. The 'chorizo polenta' was exceptionally mushy and almost flavorless. My husband did enjoy his lamb chops. The food was surprisingly lukewarm.

We were the only diners for the first half hour, so it wasn't as if the kitchen was overwhelmed. We also had spotty service. The server was friendly, but seemed inexperienced. He decimated the cork when opening the $100 bottle of wine we ordered - and as the cork disintegrated, he apologized and said he'd take it back for another. Then returned moments later saying he'd managed to remove the cork...and poured for us - Chateauneuf du Pape - WITH bits of cork. Yes, we could have sent it back. We felt bad for our flustered server and fished out the cork ourselves.

As we were staying at The Fairmont, the restaurant was convenient and the management was welcoming. However, I would not choose to return.

The meals were perfect! The snapper was perfectly cooked with just a touch of heat from the jalapeno. The chicken was anything but boring: Cannellini Bean & Pancetta Cassoulet , Baby Zucchini & Patty Pan Squash and pan jus make the plate perfectly delicious! The portions were so generous that we neither finished our dinner nor had room for dessert. Victor was attentive without hovering, as always!

The food was not very good quality at all. 2 orders of pancakes, a side of chicken sausage and a side of potatoes for $60. I am a pancake fanatic and connoisseur and the pancakes were less than acceptable. They lacked fluffiness and we’re supposed to be buttermilk but they tasted like pancakes you might buy frozen at a grocery store and defrost in the microwave. Extremely disappointing. The food was room temperature and the potatoes were undercooked. I enjoyed the chicken sausage however.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants when visiting DC. We had not been here for a couple years, and were very disappointed by the food. Extremely limited menu choices. Portions now quite small.
Service is still attentive, and the noise level low.

Excellent service and the food was prepared to perfection! The Virginia Chess Pie and brown sugar vinegar ice cream (what!?) was insanely good and, paired with a thick, foamy cappuccino, the perfect end to a fantastic meal!

We went to the Sunday brunch.
Although the food was good, it was very overpriced for the buffet that was offered.
Minimal choices and the dessert table was not impressive.

Fantastic service from Victor who provided us with great wine recommendations for our meals. I had the short rib with pappardelle pasta and burrata salad with tomatoes topped with a delightful citrus dressing; my husband had the hangar steak and beet salad.

Took forever for our order
To be taken despite my calling ahead and saying we were in a rush. Lunch was supposed to be one hour and was 30 min over because it took forever to order! Also Caesar was overdressed. When you pay to dollar you expect top service and this was not what we received

Had a reservation for a late dinner at 8:15pm and immediately got the feeling we were in for a less than desirable experience. Our server didn't introduce himself, offer bread (which we had to ask for because the website said the bread w/honey was amazing, and it was indeed the best part of the meal) and his brow was sweaty... which was incredible because the restaurant was FREEZING. It was so cold that when we got back to our hotel room across the street at the Park Hyatt, my wife jumped into the tub to warm up. The only saving grace to the meal was that we were seated next to a lovely couple who we enjoyed speaking with. Speaking of the Park Hyatt, for a completely opposite experience, go to the Blue Duck Tavern. In a word: Wonderful.

They don't have a brunch menu on Sunday. Just buffet. Overpriced. On the menu out it said $28/person but they charged us $48 and $55 with alcohol which they didn't tell us was more. Disappointing.

Long story short, traffic was horrible and we decided to ditch our car and have dinner. Lovely night so we sat outside at Juniper. One of the best burgers I have EVER had; unfortunately, it's their special so don't know if it will be on menu long. Juniper has a very limited menu but locally sourced.

Juniper has an updated menu which is executed perfectly. And the hostesses and wait staff are uniformly excellent - kind, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. It does not feel like a hotel restaurant.
