Three of us had the seafood tasting menu and one of us had the vegetarian tasting menu. It is a great way to sample many things that are on the a la carte menu. Each mini course was beautifully presented and delicious. The housemade egg pasta with caviar was one of the best things I have eaten in my life.

Yellowfin with the slivered almonds, micro greens, and avocado was exquisite. The handmade pasta filled with veal/lamb was to die for. Everything was fantastic.

Great service, they did not rush us, which, for an anniversary dinner/celebration, was appreciated! The food was awesome, every bite!
Thank you, Cafe Juanita for making our celebration special.

Cafe Juanita is a sure thing. The food, the service, the atmosphere are always fabulous. With a fixed menu on New Year's Eve, the tastes always surprise and stretch me. As they did this year with a palate pleasing array of seafood, Wagyu beef, and Guinea Hen. My husband and I split the paired wines between us. It was a perfect solution, giving us wines that perfectly complemented the food in a volume that made sense for two light drinkers. If you want a meal that is a symphony for the senses, there is no better place in the Seattle area.

Took my lady friend for her birthday. Friendliness of staff, ease of access (we are both a little gimpy), ambience all outstanding. Service a little slow, but it was a busy night. Drinks made perfectly, but then the food! OMG, the food is simply beyond description. Every bite exploded with flavor, all cooked perfectly and served hot. No wonder this has to be the best restaurant on the East Side, and I'll put it up against any in Seattle.

Why do we spend every anniversary dinner here? Because it never disappoints! The food and service continue to be on point year over year. The attention to detail and quality of food is the reason Cafe Juanita is at the top of our list for any special occasion. And yet, it's casual, approachable and not stuffy at all. The wine list can be overwhelming but our serve broke it down for us. They also happily split plates so we can try more courses (and they also offered a tasting menu).

I love café Juanita but the only annoyance is the parking. I arrived in an empty parking lot but had to valet for 8 dollars. That's a bit ridiculous. Otherwise true perfection.

The five of us ordered the tasting menu. Every dish was beautiful and delicious. Our new York friend said it was the best dinner he had eaten in Seattle(and there have been many). One of our guests was lactose allergic and the kitchen responded with ease and grace. Holly Smith, you have a magical place!

It is really annoying when the wait staff doesn’t write down your order and continues to bring you the wrong food and seem genuinely indifferent about it. Food was decent but slow and not worth the money we paid. Won’t be back.

Outstanding service. Great food with fresh ingredients, much of it local or PNW sourced. It's meat-heavy (strong Northern Italian influences) but some good vegetarian choices as well. Luscious wine list and knowledgeable staff. It's our go-to place when we want a truly special night out and we've never been disappointed with the food or the staff. Top notch. For people unfamiliar with the restaurant, do look at their online menu so you have an idea of the cuisine and price range.
