The quality of the food was exceptional, even for my very discerning spouse (7 years at Chez Panisse). Good service. Ambience still a little weird with social distancing of tables.

We have been going to this restaurant since they opened which was before the Covid shut down. My wife and I love Juanita and Mauds. They always deliver wonderful food, with very friendly service. The cocktail program there is above and beyond, although all those cocktails can really add to the final check, but well worth it we we sat in the rear garden area that was a delight. It felt cozy and they have the heaters going and we were feeling right at home cozy.

Good luck to this restaurant & congratulations for getting through the COVID-19 down turn, looks like everything‘s coming up roses!

Our table was ready at the appointed time, the greeting was warm and welcoming. The seating arrangements were consistent with the CDC recommendations. The menu may be a little limited but a nice variety and easy to find a satisfying selection. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The meals were quite good, fresh and well presented. As we were finishing our meal were politely asked if we would mind finishing our coffee and desert at an adjacent table. A booking mistake had been made which required combining our table with another. The change was made quickly without any unnecessary fuss. The explanation was easy, truthful and handled quite well.

This was our first post-pandemic visit to one of our favorite restaurants, where we have been frequent patrons since opening week. The evening felt felt like a celebration. The menu always has interesting dishes, or familiar dishes prepared with creative sauces and spices, as was the case with my husband's delicious steak. The desserts were works of art. Best of all was being greeted by familiar staff, and thoughtful touches such as making sure to have my husband's favorite gin for his martini :-) The evening light was beautiful in the patio, and it was such a treat to enjoy our food in the company of other appreciative diners. We can't wait to return!

With limited indoor seating due to COVID we were given outdoor patio seating which for once was even nicer than inside! Great food and wine.

The taste of every item was the best imaginable, from olives to the sashimi-tuna carpaccio dish to the the smothered chicken and halibut pistou dishes, to the finale, a Spring Pavlova (strawberry mousse w poached rhubarb and vanilla chantilly.) It was: "eat slowly and savor the taste of every bite", by itself and also together with the outstanding wine. We sat outdoors warmed on a cold night by the heating lamps, with all nearby tables having quiet couples, except for one, which had four happy customers.

We went this restaurant for my wife’s birthday dinner.

One of the staff approached us upon our arrival at the restaurant, smoothly took us to the table in patio area at the back side of the restaurant.
The table they gave us could’ve been better since this was a first time dining and for special occasion I mentioned in the note when I made reservation.

Server did a great job, he seemed quite busy at all the time but his approach was calm and professional with smile. Some dishes were brought by busser, and we couldn’t hear much what he was saying, he was like mumbling in his mask and was not ideal way to introduce the dish to the customer.

The savory food was great. Tuna tartar topped with many different kind of spices and herbs, very tender and creamy gnocchi, house made bread and herbed butter, halibut entree was light yet depth of flavors, chicken entree was little bit salty and bacon was a bit much to the flavor and chicken could have cooked lightly, it was a little dry side.

We were so excited for dessert as well, chef wrote happy birthday on the plate and with candle to celebrate my wife’s birthday. So sweet of them, loved it and appreciated their caring heart.

great drink selections, hope they’ll make some of mocktails.
