Our dinners here have all been superb. Holly Smith has stepped up her game with a complete physical redo of the facility and excellent menu. People in Seattle and the Eastside have a wonderful surprise awaiting them at Café Juanita.

This is my friend's favorite restaurant, so we went here during a recent visit. I liked the papaya salad and my pasta with little bits of lamb. My husband had a different pasta with a cream/cheese sauce. But here's the thing: we aren't fancy eaters, and I can't remember the names of all the dishes. And the food was good,... More

The food is good, the service attentive and helpful but the price seems well above what should be charged for this culinary level. My wife had a pasta dish and says the pasta was quite ordinary. We've had the privilege of dining at an Italian friend's house with home made pasta (by his mother of course) and wound up writhing... More

I'd been reading about Cafe Juanita for years. My wife hadn't heard as much about it, but when she suggested we try it yesterday evening, I was quick to make a reservation; I was anxious to see if it lived up to its glowing reputation. We arrived a bit early as it turned out to be closer to our home... More

The food was good but we found it mostly to be uninspired, not my recollection from former visits. We began with the burrata served with roasted squash and pomegranate seeds; boring plating. Grilled radicchio-nothing on the plate but black-looked horrid but taste was good; more pomegranate. The star was the broth-made with parmesan rinds and rabbit bones; quite flavorful. Both... More

It was a friend's birthday and she invited us to celebrate with her! And celebrate we did with delicious Filipino favorite main courses and desserts! The presentation was visually appetizing and palate pleasing!!! We did not know where to begin and when we did, we couldn't stop!!! It is a wonderful place to make memories....whimsically decorated!!

Apart from the fact that I really like Italian food I was very excited to see that this restaurant have a fully separate menu for vegetarians and vegans, not a common thing in the Seattle area. Everything I ordered was super tasty! Service was professional and friendly at the same time. I will definitely come back.
