    Sitting at dessert bar was a huge treat. The German girl trying her best to explain some of the preparations was a treat. “Hot chocolate ice cream is a treat for chocolate lovers who also like hot chili powder. The deviled eggs are crazy good with a half d marengue base. Tuna tostadas are delicious and the pork belly with the sliced dill pickles is a must. I really liked the smoked sturgeon dip but that wasn’t my wife’s favorite Best $200 I’ve spent in awhile

    Service was very good but the “outdoor” dining experience was sun-par (sitting at fancy picnic tables on an old asphalt driveway is not my ideal picture of al fresco dining. I think the local In-n-Out’s outdoor patio has better ambiance. All of the food was great other than the main; the pork chop. Way overpriced and very underwhelming in flavors. Would not recommend.

    Forgot about being under the flight path so sitting outside was a bit loud. Great food and service. Only problem was it took your bartender 20 min. To take our drink order at 6 pm in an empty bar. Still understaffed?

    Entrees are intended for 2-3 people at $100+ each, so if your group can't agree, it's hard to really eat much, as the small plates are mostly charcuterie and salads. The deviled eggs and beet salad were both gross. Wouldn't return.

    Beautiful seasonal dishes with smartly layered, bold flavors. Tried a little bit of everything across the menu, and it was all a home run. Standout dish was the heirloom tomatoes. Excellent service as well. The only thought was that the space itself was a little bright for a dinner service and unremarkable in terms of design/ambience. Could dial up the intimacy a bit. But zero complaints on the food and service which is ultimately what matters. Looking forward to coming back.

    Tostada was amazing, my wife asked for ube Mocktail and they made something based on what we wanted and she loved it. Initially the burnt bread spaghetti was kind of bland but they bought us more sauce and it was perfect for us. BBQ chicken is amazing amazing, moist and the outside skin is crispy, not a big fan of thr squash side that it came with but rest was good. Finally to coming to dessert, their Yodel is very tasty and unique a must try. Overall we enjoyed our Dinner very much.

    1 star for being seated right away. I had reservations for this restaurant was promptly seated at my table but that's about it. I sat here for exactly 25 minutes and not one server came over to take my drink order explain the menu nothing. There was a couple seated next to us about 15 minutes after we got there who knew someone at the restaurant. Their friend some name with a J came over to say hi and a server came over promptly to explain the menu in detail to them. As I sat there waiting I started really digging into the reviews of this restaurant and they are beyond inconsistent. I have never sat at a restaurant for 25 minutes ever and not been attended to not in NY in Paris anywhere. The restaurant was not even that busy. Their vallet outside is a disaster. 10/10 would not recommend.

    Took a friend for his birthday and made the reservation for late Sunday evening hoping it would be quiet. Unfortunately we were seated in the patio next to a 6 top of folks who were working on a noisy, drunk party. It wouldn't have been so bad if the speaker had been placed other than above our table. The music choice could be mellower BTW. Have dined here several times before and love the food- the small plates are wonderful, but the squash blossom was a disappointment and the 1/2 chicken was awkward to eat- us older folks don't like wrestling with our food. I was disappointed that you don't do anything special for someone's birthday- and I don't mean singing or making a fuss. One last annoyance- the lighting was so bad I couldn't read the bill- and no, I don't have a cell phone. Our service was wonderful- can't remember their names, but lovely young men. Not sure I'll be back, but I'll recommend to my younger friends.

    We went to Juniper & Ivy for my wife’s birthday this weekend. We have wanted to go for a long time after hearing so many good things and finally got the chance to go. Everything was phenomenal!!! The chopped salad was the best I’ve ever had! The morel mushroom toast and the egg yolk raviolo are a must. We tried 5 different drinks on the menu and each one was better than the previous one. Riley and Alex were amazing. We can’t wait to return!
