This restaurant continues to be one of the premier restaurants in the Greater Seattle Area. The food and service are unparalleled. The owner chef is a delight and works very hard to make sure the experience is one to remember. The menu is always innovative and true to the goal of making the food and experience one that will be... More

Fortunately we live really close to this restaurant. My first choice for any special occasion. Every aspect of this restaurant is top notch, the food quality, the service, and the great menu. My favorite item is the Foie Gras appetizer, and their signature dish - rabbit.

I had the pleasure of dining here twice last month and both dinners were excellent! The braised rabbit is their signature dish and it is so tender! Just melted in my mouth! My husband who is more picky than me loved it as well. Other dishes that I liked: the foie gras (I could have eaten that all night), octopus... More

Loved everything about this meal! A friend brought me here for dinner and I think we split over half of what was on the menu. Even the bread plate was one of the best! I wish we had room for dessert but we were so full. The food was amazing and if you are a foodie you will not be... More

I have eaten at this restaurant several times recently. Every time I chose to have something different from the large menu as I had a very positive experience the last time. For a wonderful meal, prepared like nothing you can do at home, this is the place for you. Wines are one of the specialties and you can get help... More

We often eat out and have had some great experiences around the world. We recently ate at cafe Juanita with 2 other couples and enjoyed the best meal to date. Being a larger group we ended up sharing a bunch of starters including the foie gras, octopus and eel. Every bite was awesome. Little did I know the best was... More

My husband surprised me and took me to Café Juanita. I am a foodie and I loved this place. The octopus was the best I've had in a long time - it was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. The copper river salmon was delicious. The atmosphere was very romantic and cozy and our server was friendly. I would definitely recommend... More

Cafe Juanita is located in a quiet area of Kirkland WA, and is a well-known and respected part of the Pacific NW culinary scene. The outside of the building was gray and non-descript, but inside was a long softly lit dining room with white table cloths and the usual formal setting. The kitchen area is quite visible and was bustling... More

The food is excellent but not reflective of the price and all the awards... I guess you could say it is over rated. There are not many restaurants of this caliber in the vicinity and the reputation helps. I would go to Trellis or Volterra if I had to stay in Kirkland.

Many friends recommended Cafe Juanita for a nice dinner so I reserved a table to celebrate my 20 years wedding anniversary. I specifically asked them to have ready on my table a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us as this was intended to be a surprise. Well, we had to wait for our table and the wine was served 10... More
