    My reservation was booked to be seated on the upstairs balcony. Upon arrival the hostess stated there wasn’t any tables available. She instead offered us to sit inside. I told her we wanted to sit outside to enjoy the nice weather so she seated us outside on the walkway. Disappointed we couldn’t sit on the balcony even though that’s what the reservation was booked for. The food was alright.

    The hostesses looked like they were bothered we came in and overall was a very awkward encounter. Service was good but we were brought an empty bottle of champagne which was not only gross but it was not handled well by our waitress who blame shifted instead of just taking care of it an apologizing. Food was ok but atmosphere and staff are not worth it

    We didn’t stay. When we arrived for our reservation it was for outside dining. Which would have been fine except it was 56 degrees and we were not aware the reservation was for outside. The hostess said, yes if you reserved through Open Table, it’s outside. We were disappointed to lose a Valentine reservation but went to Steak Knife, got in, and had an amazing meal.

    Cool bar, good food, & nice servers. Made a reservation but didn’t need it even though it was the night before Mardi Gras. Didn’t love the pesto pasta, but the apps were great.

    party of 3, ordered apps: brussels and shrimp toast, all was fine. once the entrees came it was all downhill from there, first entree, bolognese was not seasoned at all and there was no sauce and very dry. even the veal was not seasoned. second entrees, blackened red fish, was over done and dry and so was the asparagus. last entree was the seared scallops, the risotto was under seasoned and very bland and the scallops were over cooked and over salted. service left a lot to be desired. i’ve heard many good things about juniors and the experience fell short. not sure if ill return.

    We always love Juniors, but tonight seemed a bit off, largely with service. It was my birthday and we had a 5:30 reservation for 6 of us. It wasn't until AFTER we ordered, that we were told they were out of the soup and grouper (and 4 of the 6 of us had ordered the grouper). Being this early in the night, that's something the server should have known. Drinks were very very slow and the entire dining experience took upwards of 2 hours. Empty glasses were never removed from the table and when she brought out the birthday cake, the candles were unlit and she simply set her lighter down on the table in front of me. The food was great, as usual, but the dining experience certainly lagged.

    I went to lunch there after a bad experience with noise and menu items not available for dinner. I thought lunch would be better but I was wrong. Noisy and distracting. Most of all, the bolognese which was not available for dinner was incredibly tasteless. Worst bolognese I’ve ever had even when I make it. The server was friendly but oddly brought the bill wo asking about dessert. I have my ideas as to why but I’ll not speculate publicly. Prices are mostly fair. However, at $25 for the tasteless bolognese my idea of fair is skewed. I can say I will not go back.

    Great service. Clean and fresh interior. Extremely loud and noisy. It never sits well with me when the server says “we are out of…” f was shrimp at 6pm? In New Orleans? That’s pathetic. Next it was they were out of club sandwiches and bolognese? The French fries appetizer is very good. My salmon entree was over cooked and dry. The potatoes and rice were delicious. The drum tacos were excellent. The prices are fair and the portions generous. I can’t say I’d go back because it’s is difficult to speak without shouting. Probably better at lunch. There’s definitely talent in the kitchen but they need to be better organized with regards to supply.

    My husband and I went for my birthday, food was everything I imagined, service was underwhelming. Our server was training someone and on multiple occasions I could see them standing in the kitchen while our drinks just sat on the bar, check sitting on the table waiting to be picked up, or just waiting to take our order. I’ve never been to a restaurant where no other staff can run food or drinks to tables besides the server themselves—frustrating to say the least. Especially since multiple servers picked up drinks for their tables as our sat, the bar wasn’t busy and the bar tender also just left the drinks on the bar, getting watered down. I would come back but I would request a different server or sit at the bar. Regarding food: we started with truffle fries, hot delicious, crispy—everything you want in fries. I ordered the scallops and risotto, also amazing. My husband got the chicken sandwich. He. Said it was good. We didn’t stay for dessert due to limited options and disappointing service we had already received but we will be back to give it another shot.

    Was a wonderful experience, yet again. Catherine was the perfect example of professionalism and hospitality. A tip: when food is dropped at the table, EVERY person should confirm what is being dropped. The young lady dropped the shared plates at the table and simply walked away. Outside of that, bartender and server, Amanda’s service impeccable & attentive.

    I had high expectations for our experience. It was my and my guest's first time dining. Our server was nice, but the food (appetizers and entrees) was bland. I likely won't revisit Junior's and can't say that I would recommend it to others either.

    Overall good experience. I’ve read a lot of reviews about the loud noice level but that’s everywhere now. There’s nothing like carpet or curtains to absorb the noise esp in a small place. So I booked outdoor balcony on the OpenTable app, but they didn’t have enough servers to work that section. Brussels were delicious. My friend enjoyed the scallops. A lot of risotto came with it. My Honey Citrus shrimp tacos had way too much cabbage slaw on top. And it needed a sauce or more sauce. But the shrimp were good and seemed like a healthy meal.

    We waited 20 minutes for our waters to be filled. Then ordered two junior burgers which came out another 25 minutes later. The burgers did not come dressed- they were 2 smaller, sort of smashed up patties, in a bun. It was 8:30pm on a Friday night but there were only a couple of tables being serviced at this point and a few people at the bar. Maybe there was a private event upstairs which could’ve taken over the waitstaff and kitchen, but regardless, the service and food value was quite poor. On a completely different note, the music outside was extra loud- we could barely hear ourselves talk. We live in the neighborhood and have been to Juniors a few times so this was a disappointing evening overall.

    Delicious food. Eclectic menu. Way too loud though. I had to shout to have a conversation with my guest. Service nice albeit a bit slow. Would not want to sit in the main dining area again. Just too much noise. Otherwise great.
