Café Juanita Earns AAA Four Diamond Award

One of the many delicacies at Cafe Juanita in Kirkland.

Café Juanita in Kirkland was recently added to the Washington list of distinguished AAA Four Diamond Award winners for this year.
Café Juanita joins only eight other Washington restaurants on the AAA Four Diamond list. Washington also has one AAA Five Diamond Award winner, which is the Herbfarm in Woodinville, which has been on the list since 2002.
When asked about the anonymous inspection of Café Juanita, Inspector 31 said, “During my visit, I’m evaluating restaurants on food preparation, presentation and taste; its service, from making the reservation through the dining experience; and the décor, inside and out, including the bathrooms. While many restaurants may have significant strengths in one or two of the areas, Café Juanita earned a Four Diamond score in all three areas.”
Only two percent of restaurants inspected receive a AAA Four Diamond Rating. It’s an exclusive group described as having distinctive fine dining, creative preparation, skillfully served and an upscale ambience.
