One of my favorite restaurants in San Diego because it hits all the marks of flavor, surprise, creativity, and ambiance in that order. Great staff and floor management of dishes and water/wine top ups.

All was great the food , the service, all except , the sat us at a very bad table that is not in par with the restaurant
They sat us out side and just felt like we were in a bad place.
Other than that all amazing
We will be back and be sure they don’t give us that table
Not worth staying

Meh. J&I was one of my fav places pre-pandemic. This visit was very average. The menu has been pared down considerably - many fewer choices than before. What we ordered tasted good, but we had to wait an exceedingly long time for everything - drinks and food. I keep hearing that restaurants are having a hard time hiring good help - maybe this is the result. I’m going to wait at least 6 months before trying it again. Hopefully it will regain its prior glory eventually.

The staff was attentive and friendly, and the food was decent. The prices seemed very high for a warehouse, barebones style ambience. The only reasonably priced items were the cocktails which, by far were the favorite items among our group.

A restaurant that actually touches your heart? YES! We mentioned we were celebrating the birthday of our beloved pet (who passed away earlier this year). So, our Server at the conclusion of our meal, quietly brought to our table a most touching memorial. We will not forget.

Our server Nate and his assistant Bobby were very patient with our questions and was quite knowledgeable regarding the wines and their distinct differences. We did a variety of small plates and then shared the Ribeye for 2. They were on top of table maintenance and making sure our glasses were always full.

Amazing food, which is what we came for. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and were blown away by all of the deliciousness.
We ate outside, so atmosphere was just okay. They've made it as pleasant as possible. Still under the jet path and random noise from the street.

Top notch food. Ignore any low or negative reviews. Especially the one on the mushy creme Brule. Chocolate, on chocolate on chocolate 🤩 I can't wait to come back again.

I definitely would return to try more dishes. we ordered 7 dishes, they are all great, will go back to order other dishes as well, want to try everything. The best is 'welcome champagne for our anniversary, it was nice', service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.

The dishes are hit or miss with the hits being amazing. Two biggest struggles was the restaurant was freezing. It would’ve been warmer to sit outside in the 50 degree weather. Second, the entire meal has to be ordered at the beginning so I would def ask about portion sizes as every dish is different.

We went to Juniper and Ivy for my 70th birthday. The wait staff was helpful and efficient without being intrusive. We had the seafood corndog and salmon toast to begin. Our second course was the beet and Barada salad which was amazingly delicious. I would go back for that salad any day. We both had the halibut as our entrée and it did not disappoint. For dessert we had the strawberry and rhubarb yodel which was so delicious - just the right amount of tartness and sweet. The restaurant also gave me a chocolate macaroon with sprinkles and a candle for my birthday. We ordered too much and were stuffed when we left. But a good kind of stuffed. It was overall a very special dining experience.

This was an amazing experience. Food was outstanding: creative, imaginative, delicious, extraordinarily well executed. The inspiration and melange of flavors was amazing. Even with experiencing the outdoor overflow seating in the parking lot, it’s clear that this restaurant should have a Michelin star. I was shocked that it does not. Hoping the chef gets one soon.

Every member of J&P who assisted us in some way was friendly and helpful. It was my girlfriends birthday, and the restaurant went out of their way remind her of that throughout the night. Food was phenomenal and well presented. Worth every penny.

The food and service was wonderful and it was just enough to override the blahness of the outside seating and the airport/planes noises.
I can't wait until we can be back to normal to enjoy the lovely inside restaurant setting.

The food and inside service was great, but the reception was really bad, we had a reservation and they made us wait for more than 20 minutes outside in the cold, I feel for this level restaurant you guys should come with a better reception, I almost turned and left, it was getting ridiculous. Also the reception no friendly at all.

Food was absolutely amazing. The Beets and Buratta salad was definitely my favorite. The only issue we had was timing. Our main courses came almost 30+ minutes after our appetizer and one of them was cold. We sent it back to be heated up with no issues and other than that, everything about Juniper and Ivy was great. Outdoor seating was nice and warm with all the heat lamps, which was nice since it was a cooler evening out.

We were expecting good things prior to our arrival and were very impressed and happy with our experience. The staff and service was the best we've had in quite some time, even though our server was in the weeds a little, but she never let us see her sweat. She handled the food allergy issues we mentioned with grace and the food came out PERFECT. It was my fiance's birthday and they gave her some extra love as well which was a very nice touch. We wouldn't change a thing about our experience and would absolutely go back again.
