    Very nice tasting menu. My favorites were risotto, wagyu croccante and lamb chop. I had an outstanding glass of wine from Botanica. Service was superb.

    Chef Holly and her team at Cafe Juanita never disappoint, but these days they seem to be taking it to a higher level across the board. We had a larger table for 5 in a semi-private room (with great views into the kitchen) and it was very cozy and comfortable. The food is simply top-notch, only the best ingredients prepared with such skill, and presented in the most beautiful ways. The tasting menus may look a bit overwhelming, but the portioning and pacing are such that when I left, I simply felt comfortably full and not at all in a food stupor from overindulging. The service leaves nothing to be desired. The staff are all super friendly and helpful. The recommendations from Alexandra the Wine Steward were spot on, and our server and the food runners from the kitchen explained everything without droning on and on so we could get down to the business of consumption without delay! We have said it for many years now: Cafe Juanita is easily the best restaurant in the greater Seattle area. Huzzah!

    An expensive but truly memorable milestone birthday celebration. The food and wine pairings were outstanding as was the service. This is the best fine dining experience in greater Seattle.

    One of the greater Seattle area Restaurants that truly have withstood the test of time. We were there for an anniversary dinner and the 2+ hours went by quickly as a steady progression of deliciousness from one of the four tasting menus kept us engaged. The Tajarin 40 tuorli with sage butter redefined for me what a simple pasta dish is capable of.

    Our meal and the service was delicious. From the amuse bouche to dessert, each bite was a delight and awakened the senses. A very special experience. Our crew from Milwaukee was grateful.
