We enjoyed the Juniper Grille - friends in from KY and wife needed Gluten Free Options. Waitress was knowledgeable of needs and made recommendations. Waitress was also friendly and provided great service.

Came here on a whim (last minute reservation) for a Saturday birthday lunch. Great food and service. Place wasn’t busy and we got her undivided (yet not annoying) attention. We also received a complimentary entree coupon for our next visit and an amazing ice cream dessert. Great find!

Everything was very good especially the service. Only negative was that they were out of some of the dishes (was looking froward to trying the skirt steak) which seemed odd. The short ribs were excellent.

We had an early new year’s eve dinner that was average at best. My filet and shrimp were over grilled and had dribbles of bern sauce. Had to ask for a second glass of wine before it was offered. The server nearly talked us out of dessert before we selected.

My issue is not with the food or the ambiance; it is with the service. We had a server who was disrespectful. It left me so taken aback that I said nothing to management at the time - especially since we were with another couple and it was a celebratory event. While his overall service was responsive, his interaction with me was not appropriate - especially for a restaurant of this caliber. A follow up call was made to the restaurant the next business day. The service manager was appalled at the episode. She was going to follow up with the general manager and get back to me. This over a week ago and I have yet to receive a follow up call. If we were to go back (and that is a big if) and we were sat at this server's table, we would leave.

Solid dining choice. Don't pass up the grilled fish tacos, but get three because two is just not quite enough for dinner. Solid wine and cocktail selection. Beer selection could be better, but isn't bad.

service was a bit goofy, 3 trips to table to get a glass of water. 3 different people provided a part of the service. A bit unusual I've been there quite a few times and service is normally quite smooth

I was surprised to find my chicken and avocado salad to be cold. The salad was obviously sitting in the fridge for some time. The plate was freezing. I was expecting new, warm fire roasted chicken on it. Instead, the chicken was cold. The dressing was already mixed in but also not runny because it was cold.

Food was superior as always. Made a last minute reservation for 2 of us, and was seated promptly - ON THE PATIO. There was ample seating inside, and I guess it's my mistake for not requesting this. There were 3 large family parties, with children of all ages, and it was VERY loud. The kids were very well behaved, but the adults found it necessary to shout to each other across the large tables. There is nothing in the room to absorb the noise, so the level was pounding, even after 2 of the parties left. My advice - eat here because the food is delicious, but request NO PATIO!

The food was very good. Our server, Donny was an absolute nut. There were 6 of us and he took all our orders and then came back and said he lost my order.

He put all our food on one check instead of 3 like we asked. Then he couldn't get it split into 3 checks. The manager had to come over and handle this mess.

He never said he was sorry, he blamed the computer was not working correctly.

He was obviously on something or smoking something between waiting on tables.

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to Juniper Grill! It was very lively, since it was Saturday night! They showed us to a quieter area in the back, which was very nice. We found our entrees to be quite tasty! I got the scallops, and my husband, the shrimp fajitas! The dessert we shared, the chocolate pecan pie was delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends!

Dined with our good friends and everyone’s food was off. All mashed potatoes were cold and lumpy, even replacement. Pork chop was over cooked and tough. They took it off our bill. And hairs in the plate were the killer. Service was good. Been there 4 times. Won’t be back.

We have been visiting Juniper for a few years now & love the Street Taco appetizer. It's primarily the reason we go back. We just took friends there on Saturday for a celebratory dinner. Of course the appetizer was great, food was exactly as expected. The dining room is very dark & it's hard to read the menu. It's also quite loud and a bit hard to enjoy private conversation. We will be back for the appetizer is nothing else.
