this is what a restaurant should be. Understated with a consistent delivery of great food and excellent service. The wine list in incredible. The menu does not change much (sadly) but the formula works throughout the years. We have gone there countless times with friends and they have been blown away at how good the food is. You may miss it as it is quietly hidden away. Definitely a must do if you are in in the area...or rather, even worth the detour. This is northern italian at its best.

This is truly a place for food lovers. Excellent Italian food, seasonal ingredients, attentive service and wonderful ambience. This is not a place for children.

Cafe Juanita is a stable icon in Kirkland. The ambiance is inviting. The food is prepared and delivered at a comfortable pace for conversation with your guests. The flavors are great, unique and sometimes surprising. It is expensive but a great special dinner site.

This is an amazing place to go for a special dinner! Their wine and food pairing is out of this world. The Chef is very creative and can create gluten free dinners and pairings that are delectable!

My family loves to eat out occasionally and we try different cuisines from other countries, however we do stick to our faves. This time around, our daughter wanted to celebrate at Café Juanita, which she had heard about for a long time. Since it was her birthday, the restaurant did not disappoint us. Appetizers were very tasty and inventive, which you don't find common in American restaurants. My daughter had rabbit, hubby had wagyu steak, son had pasta with morel mushrooms, and I had hen. We all sampled each others' dish, all of us agreeing the food was wonderful. The place is small but cozy, and the ambience of a unrushed meal was appealing, so we had time to enjoy dinner and our drinks. Price wise is high $$$$ , but splurging for a birthday celebration or a special event is worth it. Reserve ahead because the place is popular on weekends. Maybe next time, we'll do our anniversary dinner here!
