Recently Ben and I stopped by Juniper Grille for lunch on a weekend. We had never been there before, but drove by it many times. The lighting was a little dark, but the inside was tastefully decorated. We both had a hard time deciding what to order because there were so many things on the menu that sounded good. I decided on the prosciutto, fig and goat cheese panini and Ben got the caprese panini.



The french fries were fresh cut, and the house made potato chips were also excellent and very addictive. I also ordered a glass of the house green tea, which had a hint of blackberry and was very tasty. The sandwiches were grilled on a panini press and were perfectly crispy.

Before we went to the Juniper Grille, we did a little research on the web and found that most people thought this was a great restaurant except for the service. Most reviews that we found were a few years old, however, and we found the service to be quick, efficient and friendly. We both enjoyed our visit and hope to return soon!

    so true about juniper–good but bad service. They used to serve a great brunch; do they still?

    I am sorry to learn that Junper closed, tho I’m not suprised. This was one of my fav places to meet downtown what w/ free parking, delicious offerings, reasonable prices and easy freeway access. However the last few times I visited btwn April & July(?) of 09 I could see the writing on the wall. Skimpier servings, empty tables at prime hours and questionable service. It’s too bad that Panera & Starbucks are the few place to meet for a “breakfast” meeting downtown.
