It was a nice experience; however, they didn't have certain dishes and the one I ordered was missing an ingredient. Even though the flavor on all the dishes were great my daughter and I ended up with an upset stomach.

Food was great. Drinks were outstanding. Nick, the manager, took extra care to ensure we had a great experience. Keep up the bow tie game! Server was attentive and friendly. The busser would be a top tier server at any other establishment.

The food was delicious and not the ordinary fare. The portions are decent sized so be hungry. If you sit outside then be prepared for the airplane noise.

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.

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!

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.

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
