Great food – Had probably one of the best steaks I have ever had including the so called famous steak house around town.
A very tasty dinner – My party dined at this restaurant last night. I was expecting to be underwhelmed, as the menu looked a little plain. The food was anything but plain.
The cream of mushroom soup was fantastic and one of the best I've ever had. I ordered the Jack Daniel's chicken and was blown away by how good it was. A friend had the steak, which was perfectly cooked and very tasty. Everything we had from there was impressive.
JUNO, Fantastic Newer Restaurant in Seattle!!! – We are visitors from southern California, and this was our first time eating here and we had a wonderful experience. We went there for the New Urban Eats menu, which was selections of dishes, in smaller portions, off the regular menu.The host sat us next to the fireplace which was nice because it was cold outside. The food was amazing. I started with the mushroom bisque. It had a small dice of charred fennel on top and the flavors were awesome, and it was served at the perfect temp, and that says a lot because I am VERY picky about soups. It was great for the weather. My girlfriend had the risotto croquettes that had a hint of Stilton blue cheese, and served with a red onion jam. another perfect dish. For the entree, I had the smoked pork tenderloin and she had the short rib. Both were great and the perfect portions. The flavors were completely spot-on. For dessert, I had the S'more dish and she had the coffee and cardamon creme brulee, both delicious. i can't stress how perfect the portions are for a tasting menu. they offer wine pairings with each dish, but i am not a drinker so we went with iced tea and water. Our server Terrence was great. Very informative and he was extremely nice. He didn't treat us any different then the wine-drinking patrons, which i appreciated.
The ambiance was superb with fantastic lighting and soft jazz playing in the background. Great stuff. the restrooms are located on the second floor, until the restaurant restrooms are finished being built, but that was really no problem.
Its truly amazing to come to such a wonderful restaurant, and to receive the kind of SERVICE AND FOOD that we did, and to find out how new it is, being only open for 6 months! I highly recommend going here and be sure and ask for Terrence. You won't be disappointed by the experience.
overpriced, bad food quality, pretentious – Just want to clarify first that I am not very picky when it comes to food, so...
We went there for dinner and had rabbit and sturgeon.
Rabbit was stiff and bitter. Nothing special, just two relatively big pieces of meat.
Sturgeon was also just a piece of fish, small (~3 ounces) but tasty. It came with fried eggplants (add another 2-3 ounces). I am glad they brought some bread, otherwise we would be still hungry.
Both dishes were ~$25 each. Dinner was not worth that money at all.
Beer was good, but pricey - $5.50 for 330ml.
Service was great, it seemed that they really tried their best satisfying customers.
It was busy Saturday night, and, while all other places were packed, this restaurant was almost empty.
Sorry to be a bearer of bad news... – Had lunch at Juno with two friends. None of us had ever eaten there. The host seated everyone promptly. The decor is a bit dark, wait staff all wear black, gray and white--sort of a "clubby" or dark feel but nice. No one could close the shutter blinds because the cords are about a story above the table, so one friend moved to get the sun out of her eyes. The menu was way over my head ("pickled ramp"!), so I settled for a Kobe beef burger. Very unimpressive, over-cooked, served with like six French fries artfully arranged on the plate in layers. A huge bun, a leaf of lettuce and three skinny limp red onion strands--no condiments, no nothing else. Ended up eating just the burger and the bottom bun and couldn't finish it. Not much taste. Friends were equally unimpressed with their food. We voted not to go back. Restroom is on another floor and far from the elevator. Whoever decorated Juno (those blinds!) should look for another line of work! Sorry.
Expected More – Went to Juno recently to check out the place and see how their happy hour is. The anticipation had me expecting excellence. I had the "lavender seared bay scallop in tuille" - it was one scallop with accompaniments and it was not as flavorful as the description would lead. The drink specials were mojito or a dark beer (just those 2 options) for $3. I decided instead to try a specialty cocktail - cucumber mojito. It was made with Hendrick's gin and tasted fine, but did not have any muddled mint?? The atmosphere seemed alright and the place was not crowded. Service was fairly quick, but lacked attention to detail. Hopefully they will get the kinks worked out as they get into the full swing of things.....
Way over priced and nothing special. – Got their lunch for a company meeting and ordered take out. The portions are unbelievably small and very expensive. I am not trying to say that a lunch portion entree should be insane but 13 green beans and 4 tiny pieces of tuna?!?!?!? It was not even that good of Tuna. Then they actually made us pay for bread i mean what restaurant does that?? Don't think I am going to return there even if it is for a sit down dinner. All those months of construction and labor and the end product is not all that impressive, the Hotel or the Restaurant. Very disappointing with all the history that building has too!
