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.
Top notch service and excellent food. Always a great experience at Cafe Juanita, definitely one the top 5 restaurants in the Seattle area.
It was my first time at Cafe Juanita. It was an exquisite dining experience. The elegant atmosphere was NW understated. I felt perfectly comfortable without the sport jacket and tie.
Food is perfection.
My only issue with the experience was they did not have something to put your utensils on when the dish was not conducive to resting your utensils on the side of the plate. A small stone block or walnut utensil rest (to match the tables) would be perfect. It’s not proper etiquette to set your utensils on the table, so you’re stuck holding them. At 500+ for 2, the experience should be flawless. Despite this slight annoyance, my best friend and I had a fantastic experience. Until next time!
Wonderful food. Wonderful service from Dan! A group of 6 of us went to celebrate a couple of birthdays in style. Café Juanita was the perfect place for it!
It’s a wonderful place for a special occasion! It’s a little pricey for us but everything was excellent!
very friendly great service
Food and service is always amazing. Looking forward to sitting in the patio this summer. A great dining experience.
Ahh another practically perfect meal at Cafe Juanita. This restaurant had the best food and service in the Seattle area. It isn't cheap, but the quality of the food and service fully justify the cost. We will be back soon.
Our dinner was amazing. The yellowtail appetizer was delicious, the rabbit was perfect and our server was attentive and delightful. I highly recommend!
We had the tasting menu with wine pairing and the food - each and every serving - was excellent! Absolutely value for money!
Service was outstanding! The food was exquisite and delicious, but the portion sizes were for children. When I drop $500 for dinner for two, which is rare, I don’t want to walk away feeling unsatisfied. Still, if you have a moderate appetite, and if $500 is pocket change, give Cafe Juanita a try.
All the servers were attentive and made us feel very welcome. The food was absolutely exceptional. A delightful and special treat.
Every time I go to Cafe Juanita it gets better and better.
always great - particularly great last night. Not sure what was different.
Once again Cafe Juanita delivers for our anniversary
Food, service, wine as outstanding as ever
Our go-to place for special occasions
Service and ambiance were great. I felt the main course selections were a bit eclectic. I chose the Guinea fowl over the rabbit but perhaps should have gone with the halibut. The fowl didn't overly impress.
Food was excellent. Service somewhat lacking. Our service went past us a couple times before finally greeting us. She didn’t nearly as much interesting information about the food as other servers did. Also, she forgot the lardo.
Still the single greatest fine dining experience in the Seattle Area. Unassuming and professional service coupled with incredible food.
