Unbelievable! Met all of our expectations. Next time we’re going to have all small plates as they were scrumptious. Recommend the mushroom toast, grilled peaches and beets. Heaven!

Anniversary. Service was on point. Food was paired perfectly. Redone patio worked out perfect. Tables spaced out so you felt comfortable. Thank you for an amazing night. We will be back soon.

Went and celebrated my boyfriends birthday. Staff was incredible and made him feel special on his special day. The food was absolutely amazing. We got about 4-5 small plates and a couple “snacks” and we regret we didn’t come with a bigger appetite so we could order more rounds of food. The bonito sashimi and potato agnolotti were our top favs. The Juice Box cocktail is probably the best cocktail I have ever had!

Juniper & Ivy gave us a memorable 1st year wedding anniversary. We were treated like we were VIPs. The service was top notch. The staff is very knowledgeable of their own craft. The quality of their food second to none. There’s just nothing else like it. It was quite a phenomenal experience.

Our first post-pandemic visit to one of our favorite places. We were seated outside, but on the attached private patio and not the parking area. Bobby was our server and took excellent care of us. We tried lots of different snacks and small plates, and banana old fashioned (I can't recall the name) which was excellent-not sweet at all, very whiskey forward. I loved the bone marrow with the tartare on top, and my husbands favorite was the ravioli. We both enjoyed the hamachi tostada and pork style dumplings. Everything was so delicious. We went early and the place was almost completely full by the time we left. We can't wait to go back and see what the new chef has up his sleeves.

One of my mussels had a bit of sand in it, the small plate with pork/pasta had undercooked noodles, and everything else was just underwhelming for the price.

We were outdoors so noise level was low. Food was innovative and excellent as usual. The salmon hand rolls in sesame leaves was outstanding. The seared porcini pasta was wonderful. Our only negative was that our outdoor table was on a patio and the servers tended to congregate near our table. Not extremely intrusive but it did detract from the intimacy of the meal. We’ll just be sure not to accept that seating in the future. Otherwise we love this restaurant.

Booked an indoor seat and took a late reservation to secure / arrived at 9pm and was seated outside - then had to ask a number of times to be seated inside finally achieved after many requests
This placed a damper on night which was an important anniversary
That said the food and table service is outstanding once you deal with the concierge

The cheese plate was out of this world. Peanut butter bread , honeycomb, Brie, fresh apricot combination is to die for. Definitely try the biscuits with green tomato jam. I don’t think I’ve ever had a better biscuit!
We sat outside and it was wonderful!

Nice atmosphere but when you pay $130 for a steak you expect it to be quality. This however was not, It was cold and extra fatty. Service was alright, definitely not the best system cause there were long breaks in between when we would see someone or ask for something. Personally I wouldn’t recommend this and I was pretty excited to try it due to the owner.

Service was outstanding! Prawns were a bit overpriced and the presentation made them difficult to eat. We enjoyed the cocktails and the small plates, especially the peaches and pork pasta.
