Excellent food and service. The waiter’s recommendations were very helpful and accurate. I have been here 3-4 times before and found it to be inconsistent but they seem to have a great kitchen and staff. I like the renovation that they did too.

For me, good service elevates any meal. In this case, the tasting menu was delicious and well paced, and the service impeccable. Every bite was great and the attention to detail was noticeable. No, this place is not aiming for a Michelin star, but it...More

Kirkland is not one of the locations where I expected to find a gem like Cafe Juanita. In fact, the restaurant name doesn't necessarily provide a vision of a great restaurant. But it is! Cafe Juanita is situated in a cute little house in the...More

Don't worry, if the renovations are not finished by July, they will still be at their pop up location on 12th Ave. in Seattle. Telephone them at their old number and they can advise you. Enjoy!
