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

We are locals looking for a new place to dine. Very happy. Most there live in nearby condos but everyone was very pleasant and friendly. You have no choice but to make new friends at the bar. Service was fantastic as all especially Frank were professional and attentive. Food was very good! Check it out.

Too dark at the tables, need candles or a light. Couldn’t see the menu or food had to use my phone light. The picahna steak was good but not worth the price. Cuts of steak had a lot of fat.

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.

The view of the water is nice though not across the way of outdated homes. The venue is dated and musty. No bread service. Didn’t realize this appears to be the club for the flanking condo buildings not a regular restaurant. The pool is just off to one side with a families of swimmers. The dessert was awful. Don’t bother with the bread pudding.

While Juniper on the Water had a lot of potential, our birthday dinner there fell short of expectation. The views were beautiful, and he setting was very nice, but the food was sub par and the service was completely lacking. We waited 20+ minutes for drinks both the first and second time. We were constantly being apologized to for how slow the kitchen and bartender was, yet nothing changed. I had requested a birthday dessert or flowers in the reservation notes and it was ignored. And when we did receive our entrees, my lamb shank was harder than my knife was capable of cutting. It was literally inedible. The polenta and blueberry demi-glaze was delicious and I am sad I wasn't able to actually enjoy the meal. Finally, even though I sent it back, it still remained on the check when it came time to pay. Never did I receive an apology, a comp on part of the meal, or anything else from the wait staff. This restaurant is simply run in a mediocre way. Unfortunately, i will likely never return here and actively steer others away because it was just that disappointing.

From the beginning, the person who received us was very rude. And at the end, around 9PM, on the grounds that she had another reservation, she picked us up from the table and forced us to leave. I have never had such a horrible experience in my life. Too bad, such an employee made the restaurant a disgrace.

I read reviews on how good the paella was, so tried it, over my hunch to have the scallop special or the lamb. The portion was huge, too much. It was pretty bland, some things a little over cooked, way too much couscous, and had a slight funky taste, my daughter said it smelled and looked like a fancy dog food. The fish in it was not good at all. Very disappointing, and I paid $34 for it, Ugh!! Should have had the scallops or lamb…
I Started with oysters, they had blue points, my favorite, they were delicious, no prep for oysters, so they’re as good as they get them.
My daughter had the lobster gnocchi. The gnocchi was good in texture and cooked well, but the sauce, which she ordered non spicy, did not taste good, like it was burnt or overcooked or maybe added something that didn’t taste good, maybe burnt butter added?? and the lobster meat was shredded, not chunks, and didn’t have that sweet lobster taste to it, for $34 they should have had some nice sweet lobster meat in there…
The desserts was good, creme brulee and key lime pie, I wonder if they order them pre-made from somewhere else.
The restaurant itself was nice, nice design features.
The service was not very attentive, I had asked for an extra plate for the shells in my paella, they didn’t bring it out until I was almost done with the dish.
Had to ask for water refills. It wasn’t that busy.
Very overpriced, especially considering the service and food. Maybe some of their other dishes are better… but I don’t think I’ll return to find out.

The service was excellent. Kevin was our server and he was excellent. We ordered calamari for an appetizer and it was excellent. The clam bake was good but was over cooked. Our dad had scallops which were very tasty but overpriced. He had 4 scallops with asparagus for $40.00 ! My husband drink was fantastic. The ambiance was very nice and relaxing. Kevin was one of the best servers we ever had. We enjoyed the evening .
