Very attentive server who was helpful in making the tasting menu work for me (as I'm a picky eater and vegetarian.) Quiet, but friendly neighbors for my wife and I to talk to. The architecture and garden were fantastic, and the food superb.
one of our favorites. the seasonal pasta dishes tonight were amazing. service is always fantastic.
From the moment we stepped through the door to the last step over the threshold departing, we were treated to a wonderful experience. The tables are set further apart than many restaurants, affording privacy in conversations, the room itself has picture windows on one side looking out on the trees and into the kitchen on the other side. We could see all the chefs working on dinner. Our wait help, Dan, was charming, knowledgeable, and efficient. The food was out of this world delicious. I wouldn’t change a thing! We will be back!
We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. All the dishes and pairings were excellent and we had a wonderful time. The service was excellent as well.
This is easily our new special occasion go to. Our server, Rita was phenomenal. Top notch service. Every bite was perfect.
Absolutely a great experience! Tasting menu was fabulous!
Loved the place. My friends and I loved the amazing food and also the staff is very nice.
One of the best restaurants in the country. The food and service are impeccable. Our waitress Linda remembered us from three months ago. She had extensive knowledge of the menu and wine list with an extremely friendly and accommodating attitude. The menu changes according to the locally sourced providers. It’s always fresh and cooked to perfection.
It’s our favorite restaurant in the Seattle area.
Wonderful experience from start to finish!! highly recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing!
I had a wonderful experience!
As always, great food and great service. The menu is really hard to pick from. Everything sounds so good. It's always a great flavor profile - savory with freshness, heavy but light at the same time. We've been coming to Cafe Juanita for a while. It's always our go-to for celebration and a great time.
Amazing tasting menu as usual. Loved everything - we traded the salmon in place of lamb and it was great. Wines all night were delicious as well and described perfectly.
Amazing service, outstanding food, incredible wine list, and the best panna cotta outside of Piedmont....unbeatable combination!
Great reception and service. Food was awesome and very tasteful. Definitely a must try.
Never disappointed at Cafe Juanita - just wish they had a bar for pre-dinner drinks
Our lower level lounge is usually available for a pre-dinner drink, and in spring and summer with nice weather the outside patio is open for walk-in guests and pre dinner drinks! Just ask when reserving and we will make note of your interest and confirm the lounge/patio are available that evening.
Cafe Juanita is a special place. The food and service are fantastic. You get what you pay for. I love this place.
We had a fabulous meal with superb service. The ambiance is also very nice. It truly is one of the nicest restaurants in the Seattle area.
Anniversary dinner was fantastic!
We eat out a lot and try new restaurants. I’d say this was my best experience in four years in Seattle. It’s expensive, but the service, atmosphere, pace and quality of food are all top notch and worth the price. Excellent meal and will return.
As always wonderful food! Celebrating our wedding anniversary and did the tasting menu with wine pairings. Everything was prepared perfectly and the timing of the delivery was perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better anniversary dinner.
Wonderful spot for a quiet, excellent dinner. It is so nice to be able to talk and be heard while enjoying good food and service.
Its a wonderful place to eat. My wife loves it. You just have to be prepared to pay for it.
Everything was fabulous and delicious. Our server Amish (hope i spelled that right) made the night awesome and Chef Holly Smith even came over and talked to us about the food which was a real treat! This was my 5th time at Cafe Juanita and it definitely will not be my last.
Food simply put amazing. Best food for price.
Pricey, but one of the few places left where you still actually get what you pay for. Everything is always perfectly prepared!
Always great food and service. This is a special occasion restaurant and it never fails to deliver
The best in PNW
I would easily put Cafe Juanita at the top of Seattle dining experiences. Every aspect and detail of the experience was crafted to perfection. Food was superlative, service discreet, friendly and knowledgeable, ambience was soothing - altogether every element harmonized to make for a truly memorable evening.
Cafe Juanita is absolutely amazing, some of the best Italian inspired food I have never had outside of Italy. The freshness of everything was incredible, the flavors were unbelievable. Their wine list is unreal, and the cocktails to start were a perfect pairing. Looking forward to going back soon.
An absolute joy to be in such a well done environment, eating truly thoughtful food.
Hands down, the best meal of my life. The quality and presentation was outstanding.
As usual the food was excellent
And the staff very welcoming and attentive. My only comment is that our waiter seemed stressed out which was a bit of a negative vibe on the evening. Never had this experience at Cafe Juanita before. The wait staff are usually fantastic.
Our last trip to Cafe Juanita was 5 years ago. So happy to see it is still an amazing place! Food and service are sensational. Atmosphere is refined but relaxed, not pretentious at all. The kitchen is open but somehow incredibly quiet. A pleasure to watch the chef and her staff calmly turn out amazing food. A real gem of a place. Dan was our server and we enjoyed him immensely! Thanks for a wonderful evening.
For an Anniversary would have preferred a more private table, but we are always impressed by the flavors and the quality of the food. Of course it’s expensive, but it is what it is for a fine dining experience and great food presentation, that really sets it apart from other nice restaurants. 2 Anniversaries in a row we chose Cafe Juanita in part due to the fact it’s the nicest place north of DT Kirkland and close to Kenmore, and when I go out for a meal that can run $400+ for two I have high expectations, and Cafe Jaunita does not disappoint.
Had a wonderful evening! The Owner/Chef Holly was again an amazing host, and the meal was a treat. The lamb was out of this world as was the gnocchi and raviolis. Aperitifs started everything off just right and we look forward to our next trip. Only down side was that the copper river salmon was not yet available guaranteeing me to return😎.
Next time we have agreed that will be doing the Chefs Tasting Menu w/wine pairings
Unique dishes we’ve seen nowhere else! Delicious. Thoughtful service. Perfect for a special occasion.
I have lived in the area for years and have never been. It is definitely someplace I will go back to! Food was amazing, service impeccable and just a flawless experience. Definitely worthy of a celebration. Can’t wait to return!
Amazing service, amazing food. Will come again.
