excellent, destination restaurant, has never disappointed us, we will come back again and again and recommend to all of our friends and family
Great as always
The service was exceptional. I loved all of the dishes we ordered. It is a wonderful place to go for an outstanding meal for date night, or a family very special occasion.
We’ve been dining here for over a decade and it never disappoints. Extensive wine list. The brodo soup is amazing. Not always on the menu but make a point of asking if it’s available.
We have gone to CJ at least 2 dozen times over the years and it's always top notch. The food is amazing and always a bit different.
Absolutely wonderful food, service, setting and dining experience!
Great food, great service, great ambiance! One of our favorite restaurants.
A great meal with excellent service. All five of us loved the appetizers, salads and desserts. i did not love my entree, but it was not because of the preparation. i was expecting a braise cooking and it was sauteed. Our server offered me another dish which was very nice, but i declined as i felt it was not their fault, just not to my liking. Otherwise a great experience for me and my friends, and i would not hesitate to go back again and again.
We enjoyed an incredible meal for our anniversary dinner. The waiter "cooked" up a special cocktail for me based on my saying I liked grapefruit and it was delicious. Just like Mary Poppins, the evening, food and experience were practically perfect in every way. We shared several items so we would have room for dessert. The waiter was gracious about splitting and everything arrived plated in such an appealing manner. Two tiny niggles: it was rather chilly inside. I'm sure the waitstaff doesn't feel it as they are bustling around but even in my light sweater, I was chilly. And I do wish the waiter would've waited until we'd completely finished our cocktails before bringing out the wine we'd ordered. But we would certainly return for a special occasion!
Have dined here for 16 years and it never disappoints. Outstanding food, service and ambience, it is that simple.
Cafe Juanita never fails to please. Great ambience, fantastic service, amazing food. It's obvious that great care and planning has gone into making the dining experience memorable from the moment you walk in .
Definitely our go-to for anniversaries or special occasions.
Fantastic dinner. Everything I had hoped it would be; was not disappointed. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.
We have been going to Cafe Juanita since it opened in 2000. We no longer live on the West Coast (sigh) but we eat here whenever we venture West. The food, the service, the ambiance are the best.
Enjoyable dinner last week. Northwest regional dishes, fresh, local ingredients well prepared and beautifully presented. Modern and comfortable space. Service was smooth, timely and unobtrusive.
Always excellent food and service
One of our favorite restaurants
Rita was a fantastic server and the food was incredible, particularly the tajarin with sage butter sauce, yum yum.
Cafe Juanita is our favorite place to celebrate. My husband and I have been here for birthdays and our engagement. We love, love, love this place!
Cafe Juanita is one of the restaurants we have been going to for Special Occasions for the past 20 years.
The only surprise is the change of parking to valet parking, which caught us by surprise and was not appreciated - it cheapen the whole experience, seriously.
We had not been to Cafe Juanita for several years and the meal did not disappoint. The food, service and wine was outstanding. We decided to order the tasting menu and the food was presented beautifully and tasted divine.
Excellent food and service, as always. Have gone there for special occasions for many years...this was our 50th Anniversary, celebrated with friends of 60 years. All food and wine lovers, all enjoyed it immensely. Increasing popularity with a somewhat younger crowd has made it rather noisier than before.
Café Juanita is a true foodie fine dining experience. The tasting menu with paired wine is a great choice. My sister and niece each got the pescatarian tasting menu while my wife and I had the standard tasting menu. Every dish was well executed, flavorful, and interesting. Service was great, wine was good. Room was a bit noisy, but quieted when a large party left.
Our favorite restaurant or more than 35 yr. every detail is great. We think it is the best in all of Seattle. We are picky eaters and good cooks ourselves and most times we say “ perfect meal”. Anniversary’s and birthdays it is our first choice. Previous owner Peter Dow said Holly has taken it up several notches! She never fails to innovate even the old favorites into something better.

Delicious tasting menu with amazing wine pairings. Each course was wonderful on its own, but the variation, and overall effect of the meal was superb. Highly recommended. Will be back.
Poor execution on a few dishes, dry and over cooked. When the waiter asked how our meal was, I said we were somewhat disappointed since it was so dry, twice. He ignored us, then walked away. What?!
This is now just another "Been there, done that" restaurant. It was our anniversary and so excited to finally go. Overall disappointed.
Canlis is our usual special occasion restaurant...This year we decided to try somewhere different ...
From the time of booking, confirmation , and day of experience, I cannot express how wonderful everything was....The menu was exquisite, the service was superb, and the hostess and servers treated us like royalty...
I’m looking forward to returning soon...
Thank you so much for making my son's birthday so memorable...

Amazing food, loved the entire experience. The food and wine tasting menu was exquisite.
Had a wonderful meal at Cafe Juanita-- highly recommended. Easily as good as any Michelin-starred restaurants we've been to in the Bay Area. We especially enjoyed the starters. The flavors and textures were perfect. My only regret was not choosing another starter in place of the main course, which was a large portion and less interesting than the other dishes.
I love this restaurant, but when I went last week my black cod was barely luke warm while my friend's risotto was super hot the way food should be...did they cook the fish first or??? I consider this a rare occasion, but all the same something to note.
Been here a couple times and have never been disappointed. Great food, service and ambiance.
We went here for our anniversary. Incredible food and wonderful ambiance. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a higher-end restaurant in the Greater Seattle area.
Amazing food start to finish and poised, professional staff plus a great wine list make this special.
My second visit (I’m from out of town) and will definitely be back.
Loved the Vegetarian tasting menu! Best meal I’ve had there yet!
No air conditioning - not an issue much of the time, but stifling during our visit. Food was flavorful but portions emphasized presentation over ALL else. Too pretentious.
Always, this is our favorite place. Service and food are reliably stellar. This time, I tried the beet salad before my entree and was wowed by the layers of flavor and texture.
Wonderful restaurant. Much too expensive to go there often.
Pity they charged for an espresso after a $400 bill for two
Wonderful food, terrific staff and a lovely environment. We are fortunate to have this special restaurant on the east side.
Excellent. We can only afford to go here on very special occasions. We have been to Café Juanita four times in 37 years. We would go more often if we could...but we love every minute we are there and NEVER leave disappointed.
Cafe Juanita never disappoints! Holly and her team do an amazing job!
Amazing food service and ambiance
No complaints about quality of food. The service was almost impeccable. I appreciate the valet parking option. Still felt the prices were a tad high for the experience.
