The food is creative and very good. This restaurant is a well oiled machine. For Covid times they've done as good as they can for atmosphere outside; heaters are well spaced.
We really enjoyed our experience at Juniper & Ivy. As for the noise it was out doors so what do you expect. Lol I had not issues with the noise. We would definitely be back.
We visited Juniper & Ivy once again for our Birthdays. While the kitchen is now far from the dining area, the staff were constantly hustling to make it an incredible evening. The new menu is incredible, and some of the dishes tricked our minds and palates. Thanks for another great experience!
My wife and I had a great time. They have such great food and service.
Over priced. Small portions. Missing flavors in just about every dish except the tostada.
We had been wanting to try this restaurant on previous visits to SD and we’re finally able to snag a reservation. It didn’t start off well, as they said they were running 10 minutes behind, but it took more than 20 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, and they didn’t even apologize, and we were seated at the table nearest the door all staff was bustling in and out of. We weren’t offered anything while we waited, though we saw parties seated after us arriving with wine glasses already in hand, so it seems some patrons were offered a beverage while they waited.
From the time we were seated, we felt we were being rushed. They made us order all courses together to start, and were super quick to clear our plates as soon as we finished the last bite. Our server even broke restaurant etiquette and while my husband was in the restroom, cleared my husbands plate while I was still eating.
We notified our server we were quite cold, as the overhead heater was very low, and he didn’t even acknowledge our discomfort, let alone make any efforts to improve the situation.
The food was good, but pricy for the serving sizes. The experience was not. We are unlikely to return to this restaurant on future visits.
Exceptional experience. One of the best meals I’ve had (even outside of COVID times). Top qualities: wait staff were extremely knowledgeable and very attentive; atmosphere was safe and intimate; every single food and drink item was unique, delicious and the perfect size for sharing; meals were paced out well, we didn’t feel rushed at all. Extremely impressed with their operations - food, quality and presentations. Will definitely be back next time I’m in the area!
Simply amazing! We all enjoyed ourselves and the food was terrific. Our server was so friendly and all the staff very attentive. Will definitely go back!
Best meal I have had in San Diego and it’s not even close
Great service, really good cocktails, superb food. One of the best meals I’ve had in SD.
Amazing! Awesome food and service, nice outdoor seating setup.
From the incredible food, the wonderful staff, and beautiful ambiance, we are always looking forward to the next time we get to experience Juniper and Ivy.
Amazing food and great service!
We even got a surprise birthday coockie.
Third time I dine and I was not happy with the menu
Great ambiance and extremely amazing service. The staff made the experience so great on top of the incredible food.
My girlfriend and I have been coming here since we started dating 5 years ago, so we felt it was appropriate to celebrate our 5-year anniversary here on Valentine's Day this past weekend. They did not disappoint. The food was excellent. The drinks were unbelievably delicious. Our server (I believe her name was Sage) was outstanding and incredibly hospitable the entire experience. The restaurant was busy, but I felt like we were taken care of from the moment we checked in, to the moment we took our Uber back to our hotel. Thank you to the staff (servers, greeters, chefs, bussers, bar tenders, etc.) for an incredible evening. We recommend Juniper & Ivy to all of our friends up here in LA and you'll definitely be seeing us again.

They've done a great job in creating a nice outdoor dining experience. Food was amazing and service was top notch.
The Valentine's Day special vegetarian prix fixe menu was outstanding, well worth the cost of the meal. It was a bit chilly, but we knew that when we made the reservation so I don't blame J&I for winter temperatures. We'll certainly be back again, though we may await a bit warmer weather if dining is still restricted to outside.
probably one of the best restaurants I've been to in a while. Service was good, food was excellent, and we had a nice table. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Food was amazing! Should have a Michelin star.
Love this place! Thank you for your innovation, service, and great atmosphere. Keep it up!!
Great food and service. We will be coming back.
Always an amazing meal and experience at J&I! Looking forward to our next visit!
We LOVE Juniper & Ivy for date nights and knew we wouldn't be disappointed when we made our reservations for Valentine's Day weekend. We haven't been dining out much since the pandemic but trusted our experience at Juniper & Ivy would be worth it. The meal was fantastic - every course was delicious and we each inhaled our desserts! We felt cozy and safe in their outdoor space with comfortable heaters in place. Parties were appropriately separated and it was a great experience!
Great ambiance, it’s relatively pricey however you do get a meal that’s innovation is worth the price tag.
Probably one the of the best restaurants by far and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a night or celebration to remember!
We celebrated Valentine’s Day at J&I.
The Prix-fix menu was delicious, and the portions were generous.
We loved the outdoor seating, and
As usual -the staff and service was excellent.
Top notch food, inventive and delicious, doesn’t always sound like it should be as good as it is!
Hands down best restaurant in San Diego... the only flaw this time: it was a little cold eating outside-- I think they could do better with more heat lamps.
They are doing fine outdoors. Can't wait to be back indoors with full menu returning!
Always a good time!
Just gonna leave it at the crab risotto that I've had was one of the best dishes I've had (next to the uni carbonara).
We ordered almost every appetizer on the menu, and each was delicious. The yellowtail tostada was the best. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. I’ve never been disappointed at Juniper & Ivy, and we will certainly be back!
The server forgot to put in one of our dishes & didn’t seem to care that we were cold. We asked the server the heater could be moved closer, as other tables seemed to be accommodated by their server. Our drinks & other items came pretty slow. Food was good, but nothing in particular stood out. Was hoping for more uni flavor in the risotto.
Juniper and Ivy always creates an unforgettable experience each and every time I step foot on premises. The staff as warm and friendly, and pay close attention to detail. J&I’s creativity and mastery of cuisine is unlike anything I’ve experienced here in San Diego, and I am delighted to call myself a regular!
We love eating here! It's our favorite San Diego restaurant by far. They always change the menu and everything tastes fresh. The outdoor seating is comfortable and quite warm (with the heaters). We are so happy that they are open again and we can come from time to time. We only wish that the cocktail menu changed as often as the food menu. We like only a couple of the 5-6 drinks they have on there and the list pretty much stays the same for months at a time. The bartenders seem very skilled, so I'm not sure why they don't change it up more.
Menu changed and food was nothing special
The server was excellent and everyone was doing a great job of following protocols. Couldn’t have had a better time!
We had our first dinner post lockdown in months here and it was an experience that I will keep with me for a looooong time to come. We had three cocktails each- honorable mention to their old fashioned- and their biscuit, tostada, and sausage rolls, followed by the steak and schnitzel sandwich. A dinner to die for.
My food was cold, particularly the chicken dish but tasted good
