Rachel, our waitress was fabulous! Her recommendations of the rib-eye, shrimp, sautéed spinach, mac n cheese was on point! For dessert, we had the bread pudding. Eventhough, they did not have Moscato, their Riesling was delicious and the perfect substitute!

Apps were very good but over priced. Entrees overpriced as well. 43$ for 5oz of corvino white fish with one veg. Shrimp app 18$ 5 small shrimp very good but small. Drinks 15$. It was a Friday night the place was pretty empty. Shame this place has potential. To many corners cut and pricing is a issue. Need to add specials with better deal and watch the tables fill. We haven’t been I here in a while hoping it got better. Probably won’t. Be back for a while. Hopefully next time will be better. Ps waitress was very good and attentive

Horrible service.
Waitress needs proper training.
Bartender was terrible, did not make the correct drinks we’ve ordered.
Chef, needs more experience.
Half of my steak was missing, and was well done. The French toast was raw.
Overall terrible experience, which left me hungry and had to go elsewhere to find something to eat.

Super disappointed with our most recent visit to Juniper on the Water. This had been our go-to for fine dining in the Aventura area. As usual the food was outstanding, but on our last visit the service was horrible. We ended up tipping the busser because she was attentive and awesome. The rest of the wait-staff was just absent. We had to continually ask for everything - the menus, our drinks, ordering, etc. This experience really soured us on a placed we truly looked forward to visiting. Not sure if we'll be back.

Food:
*Positive: Meat are awesome
*Negative: sides are not good especially the smash potatoes.

Desert:
Positive: It looks amazing.
Negative: We both agree it wasn’t the best, the chocolate wasn’t hot.

Comments: waiter should offers better table if available and it always good to ask if this a special day for the party to see if it’s a birthday or an anniversary

We went here for my husband birthday. We requested outdoor seating to have a view of the sunset and it didn't disappoint. I should point out though that I requested outdoor seating when I made the reservation and was told that this was first come first served. Our reservation was at 630pm which was 30 mins before sunset and was able to get a nice seat. Seats did fill up as sunset approached.
Service was great. Our server was very attentive and quick to fill up our drinks.
For appetizer, we ordered the crispy calamari and ceviche mixto. I thought the calamari was a little overcooked though everyone else on the table thought it was good. We all agreed the ceviche was great. It was different from most ceviche dishes and we think it's the aji amarillo dressing.
For dinner, we had the Sirloin Steak (recommend by server), cioppino, halibut and ribeye. Everything was good and cooked to perfection except for the halibut which was very salty. My husband and son thought the sirloin steak and ribeye needed a tad more salt but then they like their meats very well seasoned.
Overall we had a wonderful dinner experience and plan to come again

The view was beautiful. The food was subpar. My husbands burger was dry abs tasteless. The Mac and cheese they charged extra for was just pasta in a tasteless sauce. The servers were nice, but not friendly - if that makes sense. They didn’t care to converse or anything. I guess it’s because they already included a 18% gratuity on a table for 2 adults and a child. I’ve never experienced that either.

I probably wouldn’t go back.

The view from the outside seating is amazing. And the service was exemplary. My husband and I more were the sea bass and the vegetable pasta dishes. Honestly I have had better for both. They were good but not something that I would order again. The calamari app was really good and the cocktails were nicely made. Worth coming at least once for the view. Ask for outside seating.
