Awesome a pleasure to dine here. Service is great and the food is always top notch. Love that the menu changes, it’s always a different culinary experience. Definitely top 5 east bay restaurants in our book.
Our server was the best! And the food was amazing as always. I always look forward to dinner at Juanita & Maude!
J &M is a great neighborhood restaurant. The food and service are outstanding.
We celebrated my mother’s birthday on their rear elevated patio. Be warned, it is not easily accessible for those less able - there are stairs. The environment was lovely and convivial though also weekday appropriate. The food was exemplary, the service outstanding and the whole experience was so wonderful we’re anxious to recreate it. Hats off to the whole team! Juanita & Maude’s had been at the top of our to do list for over a year and were so glad to report it was worth the wait!
Delicious food, great service, outside is warm, drinks are really strong and well made
Lovely food in a great patio off the street. Feels very safe-- plenty of air curculation. Incredible crabcakes, salmon main, devils food cake!
Great dinner, great service, felt very safe in covid times.
We really like Juanita and Maude. We like the cocktails we love the ambiance and the service is always excellent. The food has been hit or miss for us. Some items we absolutely are obsessed with while others really miss the mark completely. We will continue to come but probably for drinks and appetizers only.
We were happy to dine outdoors at a restaurant that exemplifies great food, ambiance, cleanliness & service! Thank you!
Nice place, tasty food and good wine.
Great customer service.
Great place. Excellent food, drinks, and service.
Everything about it was great. Service, food, cocktails, vibe. It's now our favorite dinner place.
The backyard is super adorable. The staff was fantastic and we loved our cocktails - the mezcal drink was balanced and strong. The food was really good. We enjoyed the gnocchi, they are like soft little pillows with an amazing sauce. The churros and chocolate sauce was the perfect closing statement, I asked for a spoon so I can finish the chocolate. We ordered other dishes were good too.
Food is immaculate. Servers are very attentive. Ambiance cannot be beat.
Lovely meal! Lovely evening!
It was a perfect meal!
Friendly, efficient people. Excellent food and service.
Our 2nd visit in 4 weeks... this time we brought friends! Will be booking our next visit soon!
They have set up a beautiful heated patio w plenty of space between tables. Our food from wine to desert was fabulous. We will definitely be back!
This was our first fine dining experience out since the pandemic, and we were blown away by the entire experience: the service, the food and the atmosphere were all spot on. The entire staff was friendly and acknowledged us right when we walked in the door. The patio was very cute and the tables were well spaced, which made us feel comfortable. We ordered two cocktails and the ceviche to start. The cocktails were both well-balanced, and the ceviche was refreshing and had the right amount of spice. For dinner, the halibut was beautifully plated and perfectly cooked. The fried chicken was crispy, juicy and delicious. We ordered the mousse for dessert, which was incredibly silky and a great end to the meal. All in all, a truly wonderful and unique experience. We can't wait to go back!
Excellent service and atmosphere! I felt safe the whole time and the staff was all wearing masks and following safety precautions. I would highly recommend for your next dinner.
Delicious and innovative offerings. Excellent service
The food at J&M is always excellent, beautiful, unique and perfectly prepared. This last visit I ordered the beet salad with some pumpkin seeds, feta, little bits of orange -- I don't know all the ingredients (I ordered mild because it naturally comes with habanero) -- all I can say is it was so delicious I ordered another order to take home for the next day. I would actually like to have it every day. That, and the caesar salad could have made a perfect meal, along with the chocolate mousse cake which is also spectacular.
Great service... amazing food! Really blew us away — friends recommended we go here but we had no expectations really other than we were sure we would like it. It was the best meal we have had in awhile & look forward to going back!
Outdoor dining space is beautiful, the cocktails are imaginative, and the food is excellent. We particularly like the fried chicken with its crispy, savory crust and moist meat. A bit pricey so this will need to stay on our special night out list.
This was our first time back at Juanita and Maude after the pandemic hit. It was as good as we remembered from before - great ingredients, lovingly prepared. The cocktail menu is delightful and we particularly loved the math-inspired names. The service was efficient, friendly and professional. One of our party did not like the cocktail she had ordered and she was immediately offered a replacement. The portions are "right sized" as far as I am concerned, allowing you to have 2 or 3 courses without feeling completely stuffed. All in all, it's a great neighbourhood gem and we will be back.
As always, the food was excellent and the service was very good. Generous spacing between tables. It’s my favorite.
The food was really good. We had two starters, two mains, two desserts, and two cocktails and everything was presented beautifully and tasted delicious. The server was great and the outdoor patio was lovely. All tables spaced appropriately. Really good experience and would love to come back.
A little slice of heaven on the back patio. Excellent food
because they built a raised outdoor patio in the back, they were ready for Pandemic dining.
The dishes are a mix of standards--some italy, some Mexico, some traditional American.
What is distinguishing is the care and novel takes on standards. Care:--the ceviche was not a long-soaking, flaccid concocution that had been sitting for hours, but a well timed assemblage. Novelty--- humble tacos over rice were with a different and novel black bean, an the tacos were mostly vegetarian, with great texture.
This is not a value restaurant--the prices reflect the cost of novel ingredients and careful prep.
Sat on the nice outside patio in the back and had a great steak and halibut. The cerviche is amazing as well as the caesar salad!
Great team and food. Comfortably spaced and comfortable environment.
Our favorite place. Spectacular, creative food. Great service. Safety precautions in place.
Perfect for a birthday dinner. Great cocktails, great food and lovely service.
Everything we ordered was on point. Very creative menu and juxtaposition of flavors. The bourbon peach cocktail unbelievably refreshing. The jack fish nori appetizer was an explosion of flavor and texture and was orgasmic experience for my tastebuds .Love this place!
J and M is always a treat. Staff and food are on point and the COVID environment is really nice.
Felt so great to be back out to eat! Juanita & Maude made the experience feel safe but still upscale!
Delicious food at every bite, great drinks, awesome service.
Another wonderful meal. The pad see ew was much spicier than we expected, but apart from that everything was perfect, just as we've been accustomed to at this amazing restaurant. Dining outside in this terrific patio space has been such a joyful experience among all the other hard parts of 2020. We'll be back again soon.
Ate on the back patio (of course). Food is extremely delicious and service was great. The back patio is nice but the apartment building right next door takes away from the classy vibe. Don't let this stop you from going. I'll be back for sure. Fried chicken is off the hook as was the thai shrimp coconut soup. Also had a yummy main course of amberjack.
