This place never disappoints. Amazing food, impeccable service, lovely room (though I haven't seen it since they remodeled.) Wish I could afford to go here more often.

I really enjoyed the dining experience at this place, serving some delicious Northern Italian cuisine. The dish I loved was the Braised Rabbit, there were some really good dishes there also for vegetarians, so my wife was kept happy.

It's been years since I've been to Cafe Juanita. How perfect to return to find an even better experience than I remembered. This is an extraordinary menu, filled with surprises and new flavor twists on Northern Italian cuisine. Toast your good fortune with the Uncle Val cocktail, even if you don't like gin. The award-winning Tajarin with Sage Butter is... More

By far, one of the Northwest great restaurants. You may miss it as you drive by, it's so unpretentious. The service is superb, with the calm of being at the Lake with an extended family of customers all as enthralled with it all as you. It's perfect for anniversaries. Literally, anything you order is excellent. Definitely, try everything. It's expensive,... More

Wonderful attentive staff, excellent food and surprisingly high prices & valet parking. the tasting menu with wine flight for four with tips and valet parking = $1,100.00. This hick from Oregon was taken aback, but not at all unhappy that he went and dined very well.

This is the place we reserve for our "specialest" occasions! Started many years age on a former ice cream parlor with just a couple of tables to a redone home and now a recent crisp new decor the exquisite food and service has never changed. Often restaurants with this reputation can end up snooty and pretentious with the food being... More

A retirement party, fantastic WA wine and the tasting menu. What a night. Each creation was amazing as it came by. Holly Smith's amazing food doesn't let up and is a joy to share with others!

We hadn't visited Cafe Juanita in years, but returned a week ago to celebrate a family birthday dinner. We had a wonderful time, and the food, of course, was wonderful. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived (the party preceding us was having a good time), so we spent time chatting with Chef/Owner Holly. They took us to the downstairs... More

We live near the Cafe Juanita and visit Italy often. You would think we would be regulars there! Several years ago, we had a miserable experience with a waitress, , We took considerable time and a letter to owner Holly and never received an acknowledgement!! We opted for another try since the remodel. We \were fortunate in having a most... More

I can' say enough about the fantastic food and service. We hosted a birthday party and Chef Holly was directly involved in the menu selection, and accommodated picky eaters (kids and my brother who was on a wacky diet). Really the best of the best. Almost everyone had the steak which was perfectly cooked. The appetizers, salads, and pasta selections... More
