Cafe Juanita is a gem! It is our "go to" for a special dinner/date. The food is beyond fabulous and the service is impeccable. I think that everyone should have the experience of a dinner at Cafe Juanita at least once in their lives. Love, love, love!

Amazing set menu with fantastic service from Amish

The Artic Char was amazing as was the hand rolled lamb in a pasta shell

Holly and Team put together a fabulous meal on this Valentine’s Day

If you have not been to this gem on the Eastside you need to experience this place

Thanks for making our Valentines dinner special

We have been here many times in the past 28 years and love it. This is the first time the food wasn’t great, it was a bit off, too salty, not quite right. I a. Hoping it is was one off night.
Also, part of what we love about the place is that the wait staff are adults who come across as real people instead of the typical plastic cheerfulness. Our waitress last night was all into Italian pronunciation instead of connecting.

Simply the Best. This is our 6th time at Cafe Juanita, and we left feeling excited to return again. The Chef's Tasting Menu with their wine pairings was FABULOUS for our early Valentine's Day evening. Here is what were are still talking about 3 days later: Rye and Cumin Seed bread - WOW, Foie Gras - unbelievable flavors, and pasta with creme fraiche and caviar - BOOM. I cannot see real foodies being disappointed here.

Great food and mostly amazing service. A little slow with the drinks—we got our wine and mojito after they served the first course. We got our coffee 5-10 min after our desserts were served, but other than that it was wonderful!

Amazing. Our new favorite restaurant. Worth every penny. The ambience and the service were perfection - not to mention the FOOD!!!

This was our second time dining at Cafe Juanita and it was a disappointment. My gnocchi was burnt and the service was absolutely sub par for one of the top restaurants in the Seattle area. We waited almost 20 minutes for our waiter after he dropped our dessert menus and then needed to leave to relieve our baby sitter; it really nailed the coffin in our not-so-great second experience here. We will go back to Canlis next time we are out for a special date.

The best of our previous experiences here were reconfirmed. Just a wonderful experience all around. The service anticipated our needs, was warm and friendly, and well informed. The food was outstanding. Cafe Juanita is at the top of our special places.

Because the restaurant is quite expensive, I consider it a great option for special occasions. The food was very creative and excellent. The service could not have been better.

While it would be great for a couple, I strongly recommend going with a party of at least 4 (as we did). We had our first course (salads, appetizers) and second course (pasta) items served family-style so we could taste across the menu. This worked really well!

In any case, it's a special place that I'd enthusiastically recommend.
