I brought my girlfriend to celebrate our relationship after 3 years of her telling me she would love to come here.
Everything was phenomenal. The food, the ambiance of sitting outside as well as the service. We ordered the Alaskan Halibut, Hanger Steak, Egg Yol Ravolio as well as the Yodel for dessert.
Our server and trainee were fantastic and the rest of the front of house was some of the best service I have experienced. We will be back.
Another great meal! Loved the new seasonal menu items.
Very nice. Best beet salad! GREAT atmosphere and food.
We had a wonderful time. A must visit when in San Diego.
Juniper& Ivy presented a fantastic local menu with warm, attentive service.
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!
We had a great anniversary experience last night at juniper and ivy! The food and cocktails were excellent, and our server Ryan was amazing! He had great recommendations and was very kind!
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 is pretty close to my perfect restaurant. It is for the food lover that is curious and willing to explore – who would think to put sea urchin, fennel and cured meat on toast. Or the playfulness of miso cookies, liver pate and jelly. Because the menu is organized by snacks, small plates and large plates, you can try many different flavor combinations. And, as great food goes, this is a relatively good bargain. I don’t live in San Diego, but every time I go there, it is a must to eat at Juniper. If only they put an outpost in the Napa Valley – I’d eat there weekly.
You can tell a lot of thought went into the creation of these dishes. Service was excellent.
Delicious food! Awesome service! Our server was so friendly and knowledgeable.
Delicious. Not classic Italian but delicious, fresh, imaginative.
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.
Unique dishes and fantastic service!
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.
Delicious, inventive food. Over the top service, in the best way.
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.
Our meal was excellent. Food was thoughtfully prepared and at peak ripeness/ flavor. Our waitress was fantastic- gave great suggestions and was very thoughtful to our needs. Timing was just right. A lovely meal and experience.
Wonderful experience! Every detail covered...great food, service and ambience! We will be back for sure!
The food was outstanding and the service impeccable!
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
My fave go to for excellent food & ambiance, the plates are delectable with a burst of flavor in every bite. They were out of the fish, but put something special together for me. Superb service!
Great as usual
Creative, elevated food. We sat at the counter and enjoyed watching all the action in the kitchen!
Selected from the starter and small plates menu, Mushroom Toast, Yellow Peaches, Halibut Hand Rolls were all spectacular!!
Not just a ‘dinner’, but a complete dining experience! Our service was amazing and the food was insane! Will definitely be back! Thank you
Excellent food, excellent menu, excellent outdoor seating set up.
First date night at a sit down restaurant in over a year and Juniper & Ivy did not disappoint. Our server Bobby was incredibly attentive and offered great recommendations for both wine and dishes. Can’t wait to return!
Our server Riley was outstanding in every way! Food and cocktails were fantastic too!
An absolute delight. The food was much better than anything we had, unique tasty and memorable. Kudoos to the team it was a marvelous experiemce overall.
Amazing service. Great food. What more could you want?
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!
Food was just bad, salmon was fishy, burata almost tasted frozen
Such a treat, the service is impecable and the food is unbelievable ... creative menu. Delicious!!
The restaurant has beautiful decor and a very nice atmosphere. Food and service were mediocre. Weirdly, several waitresses were whispering the whole time in the outdoor dining area.
Perfect from start to finish....drinks, food suggestions...everything!
Everything was so delicious here! The drinks were stupendous and the place had a great ambiance. We tried several dishes but my favorites were the cheese puffs, tostada, raviolo, bone marrow and steak. If you have not tried this place, you must go!
