We stayed next door at the Quest on Johnston and didn't feel like looking any further for a nice meal and we were glad we didn't. The ambiance at Juniper is relaxed and the service friendly and professional. We had a lovely meal and enjoyed our stay. We will be back when staying in Wellington.

Keep going back to Juniper for the ambience, understated food and $5 bubbles. Whether it's a quick lunch, a work function, catch up with friends or romantic dinner, Juniper is great! I've eaten most of the meal selections and it's hard to pick a favourite between the fillet, pork belly or scallops! Food is succulent and tasty ($20-30 for food).... More

Visited here during lunch for a colleagues leaving lunch. I ordered the chicken fettuccine with garlic bread. Sauce was very nice and creamy, pasta cooked perfectly and the chicken was plentiful, there was tomato and spinach as well. All of the food was cooked very well

A most pleasant family evening. We had a good table in the spacious dining room upstairs. Friendly attentive and unobtrusive service. All dishes were excellent, well prepared and presented. The lamb Wellington and beef cheeks especially good.Highly recommended

A $10 cocktail and pulled pork dinner . . How cosy is that? Rather cramped for room, but thats being picky. Wonderful wait staff. Not a lengthy wait for your meal to arrive. Rather quieter than most restaurants in the CBD

Walked in, tables available, friendly staff. Advised specials and $5.00 bubbles. Bubbles almost flat. Fish meal was excellent with a NZ bottle of Riesling. Enjoyable evening.

A long narrow restaurant with an even narrower upstairs. Loud music, but great food. We had the Pork Belly, Tempura fish, and Mushroom risotto, together with a reasonably priced bottle of wine. The food was well presented, delicious, and also reasonably priced. We all enjoyed the experience.

I booked a table for the two of us for our 10 th wedding anniversary and told the girl this and asked if we could have a corner table. There were no other bookings at that time so I was optimistic of a nice quiet table. When we arrived we were given a table right in the middle of the... More
