The food and service were absolutely stellar. Tables are a bit close together so privacy is limited, but overall it was a lovely experience. We went for our anniversary and we weren't disappointed.

My significant other and I traveled from out of town to Austin and decided to try Juniper. We made a reservation for 9pm and we’re not seated till 9:30. While waiting their was a family of 6 who made a reservation as well and had been waiting 45 minutes to be seated. Once seated we decided to go for the prefixed menu as it seemed to be the best option, as each course started to come out one by one they began to get worse and worse. By the 3rd course we decided not to complete our meal their, due to uncooked noodles, cold food, and lack of flavor. We complained to the manager and in the end we’re still obligated to pay 40% of the bill this totaling out to $80. Which I believe we should not have paid. I noticed in the same moment my boyfriend and I were sending our food back the couple next to us was doing the same, I happened to ask them why, their answer was lack of flavor. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone after seeing that there were several parties that night having unpleasant experiences there.

Food was excellent. They offer their menu a la carte or in a 5 course pre-fixe. For a first time the pre-fixe was way more fun and totally worth it. Might do a few of our favorites a la carte on our next visit. The place is beautiful and their servers talk you through the dishes as they are presented which I really appreciate. Place isn’t immediately visible off the street as you drive up to it, just park in their lot and walk west. You will see it.

Absolutely incredible! Not only the food but the service has to be some of the best amongst the upscale restaurants in Austin. Came in for a casual birthday dinner and the whole wait staff personally signed the days menu for me and gave me a little goody box of in house treats as a birthday gift. Been here many times but this was the first time for an occasion and they went above and beyond!

We did the 5 course prix fixe menu, and it was great from start to finish. The risotto was excellent, as was the chicken and the crunchy salad. To top it off even though the restaurant was fairly packed, it was quiet enough to have a conversation from across a table of 5.

Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Every dish in the prix fixe was awesome.

Favorites for me were the Cacio e pepe, the Chicken Saltimbocca, and the Stracciatella!

Ambiance is also very nice and they have some outdoor seating available. Room temperature inside was on the warmer side.

Masks were optional, staff was not wearing any.

We came here for our honeymoon and we’re so looking forward to celebrate with a 10 course Menu with wine pairings. There were two or three courses that were somewhat memorable however the menu seemed very flat, unsurprising, uninspired, and not to the level we expected. Our server however made the experience, he was so knowledgeable about the wines we were being served and was truly exceptional.

I chose to eat at Juniper for my birthday, but could have picked any other place in Austin. I was expecting to be more impressed. The food was good. Some dishes were very good and some were just okay. We sat outside and I regret that choice because there were flies- both the large ones and swarms of gnats. I know that is to be expected to some degree, but perhaps they could think of a way to minimize the problem. It really affected our overall experience. The service was just mediocre, as we often sat without a drink refill when we got our next course. Not really what you would expect for that level of expense. Not a bad place, but plenty of other choices.

Good food but my wife's $38 steak was tiny. My Halibut was fresh but very bland and not noteworthy. Also, a very poor selection for desert.

Erik was our server, a sommelier in training. Helped with wine selection and was very knowledgeable. Went with Prix Fixe option for dinner and was very impressed by the freshness of ingredients, thoughtfulness of the menu, and how perfect the portions were. Neither of us left hungry! Found out that the patio is dog friendly so we will make sure to bring our Vizsla, "Pickles" next time!
