We did the chef’s tasting menu and it was absolutely outstanding. Every course has its place and was extremely memorable. The only thing that was negative about our experience was how long it took to get the check and leave. We sat for a solid 25 minutes after we finished our dessert course before we could track down our waitress to get our check, which was frustrating. Overall, the food was spectacular. The service was sub par near the end unfortunately.

An amazing experience. I rank cafe Juanita up with a unique dining experience for anyone who loves food and can take his/her time to let the staff guide you with explanations of their seasonal and very special menu. Rabbit gnocchi, prawns “silk handkerchief “ pasta, octopus...all delicious

Holly Smith and crew provided a warm, gracious evening of superb food in a wonderful setting. Our group of four had the tasting menu which the restaurant, apparently, loves to serve. The service was perfect- unobtrusive, perfectly timed and choreographed. All we had to do was enjoy ourselves. One of the best dinners anywhere.

Was our first time to Seattle and we made the short drive out to this restaurant. So glad we did this is hands down the very best restaurant in the Seattle area. It is a true formal gourmet dining experience. Everything both looked fantastic and was cooked to perfection a perfect marriage of presentation and taste. It is no surprise the restaurant still packs a full house after many many years. Keep up the outstanding work!

Our Saturday night reservation started off with a few hiccups. The single valet attendant was nowhere to be found when we pulled up to the front of the restaurant and we had to wait a few minutes until we could hand our keys over (would not have been much of an issue but we were already running a little bit late for our reservation). Next, our table for an 8:15 seating was still occupied and we had to wait nearly half an hour until the table was ready. At this point, I was already having mixed feelings about the restaurant given the price point. The hostess (who was very professional and friendly) offered to take us to their downstairs seating section (an odd/awkward space with three tables --zero ambiance with poor sound insulation from the foot traffic above), and offered free drinks to make up for the wait, but by the time we were ready to order drinks, our table was ready.

Once we were seated, our experience improved. Save for some surprisingly cold bread (the bread basket had clearly been stored in the refrigerator, which we found puzzling), the food was outstanding. From the ingredients to the preparation and presentation, everything was top notch and incredibly tasty -- I especially enjoyed the pear salad with white truffle salt, and my main course (steak). The staff was professional, kind, and courteous. To make up for the wait, the restaurant offered us some prosciutto on the house and gave us a substantial discount on our bottle of wine, which we appreciated.

Overall, I would definitely return to Cafe Juanita, but preferably on a weekday when the restaurant is a bit less packed and the service is not spread so thin.
