This place is fantastic. The mixture of flavors is unreal. Cocktails are very creative and very good. Our server was awesome! I definitely recommend this place. It is a little bit noisy but service and food are so great that we actually didn’t mind at all.
I had an appetizer that was microscopic. My main dish was quite small and did not come with anything but some kind of greens?! Over priced. Very disappointed!
Tried several dishes and was delighted with all of them. I came in with high expectations and they were all met.
Great service but food lacks when compared to other top end restaurants in town.
What's there to say? The food was absolutely delicious. It can be pricey but it's very much worth it.
Delicious and imaginative food. We stuck to the bites and small plates, and were very happy with our decision. Miso cookies were amazing and unexpected, and everything else was delicious.
Food was amazingly tasty, savior to the last bite. Everything is prepared with precision and flavor. An amazing birthday dinner for my wife.
Wow! The flavors and taste of each dish was just spectacular.
Amazing dinner with spectacular food. The sommelier was exceptional taking his time to nail our taste. Such a great experience with tasty delights.
Thank you, Tara!
Everything is always great here, but this reservation was for our anniversary dinner and it was perfect!! They went above and beyond to make it special from the complimentary glasses of champagne to the surprise dessert at the end of dinner. I highly recommend Juniper & Ivy both for their amazing food and awesome service.
We're so glad that we were able to be a part of your celebration, and that it was a memorable one! Thank you for joining us, and congrats!
I had great hopes for Juniper & Ivy. My husband and I love unique dishes with great flavor. While the menu was in fact unique, most if our dishes lacked great complex flavors. Disappointed for the price and reputation.
I'm sorry to hear that your meal did not meet expectations. Please know that we read and value each and everypiece of feedback we receive, as these comments are what help us learn and grow. That said, we will be sure to pass this along to the kitchen, and hope that you'll come back for another visit in the future to try something new!
This was as cool as I thought it would be. Go for the biscuit-it’s to die for!
Mmm, we love the biscuit, too. Thanks, Aaron!
We asked the waiter to bring us dinner and wow it was amazing. His choices were excellent and well paced.
So glad you enjoyed your meal, and that your server's recommendations were on point. Hope to see you again!
A food experience for the ages!!! Creat your own tasting menu....the wait staff will bring them out in an organized fashion.
So happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal, Lynn. Hope to have you back again soon!
I would recommend this place to anyone! The food was outstanding and service impeccable. The tuna tartare and Alaskan halibut were the best I’ve had.
So glad you enjoyed everything, Ash! Thank you for sharing--hope to see you back again.
We recently visited Juniper & Ivy on a recent vacation to San Diego. It was a highlight of our trip. We especially loved the "bites" we ordered and would happily go back to order all of them but the halibut handroll and the arancini were both so delicious and so memorable! We also enjoyed great wine and wonderful service. We would highly recommend Juniper & Ivy!
Thank you for sharing, Jen! So glad that we were able to be a part of your visit to San Diego, and hope that you'll join us again on your next trip.
Skip the main and go right to the deserts!!! Best deserts ever, Yodle and the Pudding Pop. Apps were good but small but tasty.
Thank you for feedback, Greg. Hope you'll be back again!
I chose to spend Mother's Day here at my favorite San Diego restaurant and it did not disappoint. The service was amazing, the food was outstanding, so fresh and delicious, very creative. I love Juniper and Ivy, especially the friendly and well trained wait staff. Everything was perfect!
Thank you, Beth--so glad we were able to be a part of your special day. Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
Waiter was very informative and gave excellent suggestions.
Great restaurant. The server recommended my family to share some plates and this worked out well. The food was amazing and we had a great night at Juniper & Ivy!
Thank you for sharing! Glad to hear that we were able to be a part of your family's night out, and hope to see you back again.
Presentation of the food was great, but the portions were small and the food didn't taste as good as it looked. Some dishes were too salty, but it was interesting how the dish was put together. Overall, a unique experience but the strong flavours didn't quite work for us.
Thank you so much for sharing. I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your dishes, but we truly appreciate this kind of feedback as it is what helps us learn and grow. I will be sure to pass along your comments to the team. Note that we do change the menu daily, so hope that you'll consider joining us again in the future to try something new!
Birthday. Food has been better. No more eggs :( the Biscut was not very warm.
Wonderful food, wonderful service, great place for a celebration...would highly recommend!
We enjoyed a great dinner and service was very good.
So glad to hear it--thank you for sharing!
Great experience. Eclectic and very tasteful food. Loud but energetic. Service great in the beginning but somewhat slow at the end. Would definitely return and recommend.
Thank you so much for sharing, we appreciate your feedback on the service and will share this with the team!
Amazing!!! Juniper and Ivy is our favorite restaurant in San Diego!
Made a reservation that I thought would be for the restaurant. They sat us in the bar at a high top table. There was a large group there waiting for a table I believe. They kept crowding our table and were very loud.
I'm so sorry to hear that you had this negative experience when you joined us. I would like to hear more about your visit, so that we can share with the staff and continue to improve. I've sent you a private note with my personal contact information, and hope that you will be in touch.
I have dined at Juniper and Ivy several times and I think this time was my favorite! The current menu was amazing and as always, the service was thoughtful and attentive. So lovely!
Thank you for sharing, Melissa! We hope to see you back again soon.
I came once with a group, then brought my bf here for an anniversary dinner. They made special note of our celebration, which was kind and thoughtful. We felt so special! But of course, it is the food here that makes you have to come back over and over. Every dish was delicious. I cannot tell you how much I dream about he oysters & pearls. And, the bf agreed - they were life-changing! I love this space, the staff was amazing, the food delicious. This will always be my SD go-to for special dinners!
Thank you so much for sharing, and for choosing us for your anniversary dinner. We're so glad that we could help make your celebration memorable. Looking forward to having you back again!
Went to JI on Friday 5/3. We loved it so much we came back on Saturday 5/4. The menu was outstanding & we ate at the “chefs table” which was right at the kitchen. Best meals I’ve ever had. Flew from Chicago specifically for Richard Blais menu. Didn’t disappoint.
We are so thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your experience, and that it was worth the flight! Thank you for sharing, and we hope to you'll be back out to visit us again soon.
The buttermilk biscuit is AMAZING! You will never find one better....a must order item!
Yum--we agree! Thank you, Shannon.
Without question one of the best restaurants in the country. Food, feel and service were flawless.
We are so flattered--thank you for sharing!
Food was excellent. Ambiance was excellent. However service was poor. Specifically, Calvin was our server. When I asked about the bread, his quick snap response was “ I don’t know, the bread is baking. It will be out when it’s ready.” Other similar comments took away from the experience.
I'm so sorry to hear that service was off during your visit. We strive to maintain the most respectful and genuine levels of hospitality, and there is no excuse for you to receive anything less. Please note that we are looking into this, to ensure it does not happen in the future should you come back to join us again. Thank you for sharing!
From the moment we walked in we felt taken care of. A certain request was made for seating and they were more than accommodating. Our waiter Kyle was extremely informative and attentive the entire time. The interior is beautifully done capturing the old style of the building.
Thank you for sharing! We're so happy to hear that your experience with us was a memorable one, and hope to see you again.
Three stars is exactly the right rating for this restaurant. Everything was just ok, nothing phenomenal. I came expecting to be blown away and left disappointed. The menu seemed disjointed and the the food was just meh.
Lovely restaurant, nice buzzy ambiance. Menu and wine list really good and well executed. Every course was excellent-especially the black cod. The service, however, was terribly rushed and our server was uninformed about the wine list. All around a positive experience, but the service team needs some additional training.
Thank you for your feedback, Melanie. We strive to deliver top quality not just in food and ambiance, but service as well. I'm sorry to hear that this was not up to par with the rest of your experience during your visit, but do appreciate you sharing so that we can grow and improve. I do hope that you'll come join us again!
Great for meat-eaters, limited selection for vegetarians. I was aware of this going in, but was left with a bit of disappointment for my selected dish. My counterpart however raved about the quality of their choice.
The drinks are ok, the desserts are fine. Everything sounds amazing, but maybe just wasn't my cup of tea and that's ok. I recognize that the overall quality is there and would still recommend this place to splurge on once or twice.
Thank you for sharing. We do our best to accommodate all food preferences and allergies, so we value this type of feedback. Please feel free to give us a call next time you visit, and we can ensure the kitchen is prepped with some additional vegetarian options for you. We look forward to having you back!
Overall just a lovely evening. Great food, friendly service that was attentive but not in the way and a modern, adult setting.
We haven't been here in a while & really enjoyed our evening there with friends. Great food!
Thank you for joining us again. We're so happy to hear you enjoyed everything, and hope to see you back soon!
We had a wonderful meal, with Sage as our server. She answered our questions quickly and professionally and helped guide us through the meal with ease. We tried several bites, appetizers and shared the steak as an entree.
Thank you for sharing! We will pass along your kind words to Sage :)
