For years I've heard rumors about how good the food is at Cafe Juanita, but I never got around to dining there when I lived in the neighborhood. Recently, however, I was invited by a couple friends to dine at this cozy little upscale restaurant that is run out of a converted house and located off a quiet little side... More

This restaurant is a very old house, overrated and it has very limited space for parking. The first time we had dinner there we were told to park somewhere on the street. In another opportunity my husband was told to park on spot across the street and the place was a handicap spot. So it took my husband a lot... More

Caveat. This was our first visit to the restaurant, but we were disappointed. We ate light, salads, pastas, andSe dessert,, along with wine and cocktails. The salads were small and ordinary as were the pastas. Second caveat. I guess we should have tried their famous entrees, even though they were expensive. Apparently that is what they are famous for. The... More

This is one of our favorite places in the Kirkland area. Its intimate environment and amazing food make for a wonderful experience. It's our go-to spot for those special events, like anniversaries. Don't miss out on this fabulous restaurant.

Truly one of the best restaurants in King County. If you live in Seattle, just go the eastside for this restaurant experience. Five of us ate there recently, having many different courses, and all of us absolutely loved every part of our meals. The service was impeccable and the food creative and delicious. This restaurant has been around for decades... More

Lovely presentation and well timed service make this a go to for any special occasion or just because. Three of us had the rabbit which was cooked perfectly and one of us had the steak w/ mushrooms. We also got a... More

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
