Cafe Juanita in Kirkland...how is it?

Cheeseandchocolate | Aug 14, 200305:08 PM     1

My fellow Chowhounders:

I'd like to take my boyfriend to Cafe Juanita for a belated second-anniversary dinner next weekend. I've read good things about it in the past (maybe here? can't remember) and have read the menu online many a time. I've gone ahead and booked a table, but before too much time passes, I'd like to ask those of you who've been there to tell me a little bit about your experience. I'm looking for a sophisticated (but not stiff or too-dressy) spot, with food that is seasonal, thoughtfully prepared, and not too precious. For those of you who've been to San Francisco's Zuni Cafe or Delfina, or Berkeley's Cafe at Chez Panisse, that's what I'd like to find...or at least, as close as I can get! Also, my boyfriend is a vegetarian who won't eat a lot of undisguised eggs, nor many cheeses other than fresh mozzarella. Am I heading in the right direction? Hmmmm.

Thanks in advance...
