The service was great and the food was delicious. Our waitress was helpful with the menu and was aware of the food allergies I put in the reservation notes.

I never review restaurants on social platforms, but I have to give my utmost praise to Juniper for showing us the best service I've ever had. I took my new fiancee's family here for a post-engagement dinner, and we were treated with VIP-level service from an upgraded table, complimentary surprises, and a thank you gift at the end. The food and drinks here we're equally impressive - my fiancee and I will definitely be coming back.

Hostess was incredibly rude. Service was poor. Almost cancelled out main course because it took so long and we were tired of waiting. During the long wait no one came to refill water or order more drinks. Will not go back.

Service is just excellent. Shannon was an excellent guide through our food choices and drinks, offering thoughtful suggestions and answering all of our questions, but each server or staff member was happy to assist in any way they could—a great team effort to truly feel welcome and enjoy our meal.

The cocktail menu was small, but covered the baes for all tastes—and of course you can order off-menu—though I thougt the Autumn Sweater was just exceptional if you enjoy a crisp gin drink.

As for the food, just a pleasure. The potato puffs were crispy little clouds—so pillowy on the inside, a must have! The bibb salad had an addictive dressing and just enough crunch and salt from the crispy prosciutto. The squid ink pasta paired well with the crab; and the lemony wine sauce with the chicken piccata and little gnocchis—divine!

Of course the menu changes frequently with the seasons—making this a place to come back frequently!

Enjoy!

I brought my wife for her birthday since Juniper is her favorite restaurant in town, and once again they do not disappoint. The NY Strip is back on the menu and it was again cooked to perfection to where the entire thing was eaten with a smile. The Team, from Shannon to Michael and everyone else that interacted with us, served up a top notch celebration and meal. Thanks again Team Juniper!

Introduced someone to Juniper on this reservation and it more than lived up to my hype. All our food was exceptionally well done and delicious. Loved the tweak to the roasted carrots. Couldn't have asked for anything more from our visit.

Our server, Luke G, was the best! He was so friendly and answered all of our questions. He was very personable and we felt like he was apart of our friend group. The food was also amazing! The atmosphere was inviting and had a high quality feel. Would definitely recommend!

I really want to love this place but I keep putting it 3 or 4 down on my list when I want pasta - it's close to home, a beautiful space, and the menu is always appealing. But the service has been really hit or miss and I often feel like I'm being aggressively upsold on things like wine or the ($22) addition of truffles.

Last week I was surprised in a very pleasant way by our server. She absolutely made our night. She did everything right and made up for the noisy group that dominated the dining room and the always-a-little-too-high bill at the end of the night.

Excellent service and very good food. Both the menu and the wine list are on the small side, but that's a good thing.
