Welcome to Juniors! A strangely familiar, Lakeview neighborhood joint. We are keeping downstairs family friendly for the whole family and if you want to hang with just the grown folks, head upstairs and check out the full bar and balcony. Cheer and thanks for your patronage, we are grateful! -Nick & Lon

    Outstanding as always & great service too. Food is diverse & always delish with excellent craft cocktails to match. Very neighborhood place & expect to see a lot of families with small children but they do have an upstairs “adults only” area. We LOVE Juniors. Some of the Best food in New Orleans & that is saying a lot!

    Really fresh and flavorful food, but fries were undercooked and soggy. Service was beyond friendly and amazing! We will definitely be back, as they were probably just having an "off" night. Looking forward to giving them another try!

    We had a family night out. We started off with the cheese curds (so good) Love the tempura batter. My son had the fried chicken sandwich, my husband the shrimp tacos, and I the amazing pork buns. Everything was delicious. Our server Ashley was very attentive and took great care of us. Bonus: we were able to see the LSU game. It wasn’t my first visit but was for my family. We will definitely all be back.

    Always an incredible experience. Kid friendly but not too many kids, and fantastic food for the adults. Healthy options as well as heavy ones if you’re looking to indulge. We are here every other week and love it!

    Food and service were incredible. Very friendly staff. Only complaint relates to table. We were on upper patio and despite shade, it seems they need more fans to help air movement. In addition, the main reason for requesting outdoor seating was to hear the Sunday music and I couldn't hear it at all on the upper deck. Still plan to return but will come earlier to ensure downstairs spot and cooler weather.

    Repeat customers (4x times, avg. $100/bill plus tip) looking to have dinner on a Saturday night. Reservations at 5pm. Restaurant was at 20-25% capacity. Seated quickly but that's when the wait started. After 20 minutes no waiter had come by to take our order - not even a drink order! At no time did the wait staff ever stop by the table to say, "Sorry about the wait, we'll be y'all in a moment."....Nothing. Other customers were served. I'd like to think the wait staff was busy, but the 20-25% capacity (on a Saturday!) doesn't hold much water here. This is when management steps in to help out the busy waiter, comps a drink/appetizer, just general "damage control" stuff. Never happened. Manager was nowhere to be found. The host was busy watching pre-season NFL on the bar TV. Junior's prides itself on being a upscale place yet still kid-friendly. It's smart marketing; Lakeview consists of young-ish professionals with healthy disposable income and kids. Mom & Dad have nice cocktails and well-made entrees in a clean setting while the kids stuff their faces with chicken tenders and fries. Waiting 20+ minutes just to get a chicken nugget order in with young kids is a no-go situation. Again - management: "Sorry for the wait; lets get the kids' order in ASAP", "Mac & Cheese and/or first drinks is/are on the house, Mom & Dad. Sorry!" This conversation never happened. Worked in restaurants off and on in my 20s and I know first hand how hard it is. We all get busy, we all get short staffed, we all have bad days. That really didn't seem like the vibe here. The wait staff was "off" for whatever reason and management was incognito. That's not one but two failures there and management takes the blame for both of them. This was a hard miss, Junior's. Previous meals and drinks have been excellent but the service was so poor it wipes those great times off the board. Sad to say we won't we coming back and y'all have lost my recommendation. Take no pleasure in writing this review.

    As usual everything was delicious! Our lunch group enjoyed the brussel sprouts, shrimp tacos, Cobb salad, Korean barbecue sandwich and the salmon and none of us were disappointed. The service was likewise very good! The noise level on the first floor was very intense, and made it difficult for us to hear our conversation, next time we may opt to sit upstairs where it is a bit less noisy.

    Pricey.....noisy.....poor service.....our waitress was also the bartender and ignored our table....not attentative at all to us.....we ordered the Cobb Salad - basically, it was NOT a Cobb salad, but rather a tossed salad with a few pieces of grilled chicken.....for the price/s....the portions were small....this was our first and LAST time going to Juniors.

    Make sure to ask questions about the menu as the dish descriptions often lead to surprises. For example, the cheeseburger mayo is called spicy mayo #2 ... what is that? You will need to ask and hope the server actually knows or finds out from the kitchen.

    My family & I went for Sunday Brunch and enjoyed ourselves. At first it was sooo loud. The music was loud & there were large parties screaming over the music, but once they left it was great lol. The Truffle Parmesan fries were excellent. The Irish Coffee drink was TERRIBLE, but the French 45 was sooooo good! Our server, Ashley, was great! Knowledge, attentive (even while super busy), & nice. I would definitely be going back.
