We enjoyed the appetizers and salad, but thought the beef stroganoff was exquisite.

Very disappointing meal at one of Tulsa's highly recommended restaurants. Menu looked good but most courses were edible at best; some were so over salted (and I like salt) that I stopped eating it! The lemon bar dessert had the texture of a gummy bear and lacked any of the buttery deliciousness I associate with this staple baked item that is easily accomplished in any home kitchen. Furthermore, service was very rushed and we were done in under an hour, 3 courses for me and 5 for my husband!

Juniper is a great place for wonderful food, great service, and a lovely night out. I've been several times and this restaurant always lives up to my expectations. I had the beef stroganoff and it was amazing. My husband had the tenderloin which never disappoints. The price is what you expect for a very nice meal. Their cocktail list included delicious twists on old standards. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. We will be back!

Took my wife for her birthday. We were seated in an out of three way corner which was perfect for us. The servers were attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We decided to try the tasting menu option and were surprised by the amazing favors in each course.

Overall it was a wonderful experience.

Great food can only go so far if you drop the ball on service. We were disappointed in the service we received not just from the server, but from the hostess, and manager/food runner? Meals were fantastic, but will never return to Juniper.

I shared with the restaurant when I made the reservation that we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. I also shared this with our server when we were seated. I understand that probably they have a lot of people who dine at the restaurant for special occasion but we never even received an acknowledgement of what we consider was a momentous event. We have dined at what we consider many five star restaurants from San Francisco to New York but for this establishment to become a five star place they must learn how to make patrons feel like their business actually matters!

Our server seemed to be rushing us the entire time. I ordered the filet, which was just average. I expect much more than average when I’m paying $44.00 for a piece of steak. We also received the wrong appetizer, which was remedied with the correct appetizer. But this did not help with the overall experience. We will be looking for another restaurant for our anniversary dinner next year.

It would be great if Chef would allow substitutions. I love seafood and vegetarian dishes. I ordered the scallops which were great. It came with pork belly. I don’t eat pork but could not have a vegetable side. Please consider this in the future!

Delicious food. We had the weekly special to start which was a summer fresh Salad. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked green beans and asparagus with a sort of pea purée...it was divine. I had the fish special and my husband had a wonderful duck dish. The wines by the glass were not my taste (pretty sweet) but they allowed me to try several. I ended up with a 1/2 bottle. The staff was not very knowledgeable on wine but they did try. My only major complaint is that they brought our main courses out while I was only 1/2 done with my 1st course. Such a same for such a nice place. Hamilton was playing near by so perhaps that was the reason. The food seriously is worth going back for so we will be back and I will be sure to say to hold or mains until we are done with the first course. Thank you juniper for some delicious food!

It actually took a long time for a waiter to speak to us...another waiter/kind man serving water, approached us to see if we had been served yet. We hadn’t, and I appreciate that he took the initiative to ask us and pay attention. Then our eventual server did an awesome job and the food was over the top amazing. We loved the show menu for Hamilton. Our favorite special occasion restaurant in Tulsa!

Good welcome and service.
I did the prefix meal. The carrot soup was fabulous and could eat just that.
The beef stroganoff was good but over salted and the sauce was extremely rich.
The dessert was super super chocolate!
The waiter did a good job moving us along in time for PaC.

These folks just don't miss. Even the signature sweet carrot soup keeps getting better--tiny chunks of pickled carrot is now present in the perfectly thickened soup. The entire staff is friendly and more than willing to accommodate the customer.

Service was excellent and staff was very friendly. Food was warm and prepared properly. They were out of the enteee I wanted to order and so I settled for another entree, it was good but not what I was wanting. The menu is limited but I respect that it’s mainly because of the locally grown and farmed foods. The value was good and my companion enjoyed her meal

It is hard to judge a restaurant based on one meal only but I was disappointed with the trout which was overcooked and dry. Others though the rest of the meal was lovely: the salad was definitely fresh and quite delicious and the "pancakes" served with this fish delicious. I have a feeling I just got unlucky as everything else was great. So give it a try, for sure. I think I would go back again...

We eat at Juniper all of the time and it is consistently good! This time we ordered the fried avocado appetizer and we did not care for it. When our waiter told the manager, he came over and apologized. He also brought us a different appetizer, the goat cheese and honey..sooo, good! We really like the food there and the atmosphere is great! Highly recommend!

I loved the relaxed vibe of the restaurant! It was comfortable and not intimidating for a nicer restaurant. The service was great! Our waiter gave very good recommendations, checked in often but not too much, and always kept our glasses full! Now the food..it was absolutely delicious. Everything was so fresh and packed with flavor. We tried the shrimp and crab cake appetizers which were fantastic! The scallop entree was perfectly cooked and like butter, and the stroganoff was top notch! The crème brûlée was also delicious! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Excellent dinner! I had stroganoff, best in town. My husband had the pork chop and loved it. Our guest had the trout and said it was delicious. The staff were friendly and we were seated quickly at a nice table. Their remodel made the restaurant more open and comfortable as well. Overall, a perfect dinner.
