Valentine Day was very great time with the friendly service and the good food. We will come again back.
Wonderful service!!! Delicious food and so nice and quiet and relaxing.
Really nice restaurant with friendly people working there, we were glad we picked it before going to the Kennedy Center.
Had a very pleasant Christmas Dinner. Good food, great professional service provided by Oscar, our server, and a nice ambiance.
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.
The food was excellent, very comfortable surroundings and perfect service.
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!
Juniper never fails. My favorite place for a quiet meal. Great salmon. Pricey wine though.
