My wife and I have a standard
My wife and I have a standard at Purple. First, we split the Full Chopped Salad and then share the Lobster Mac and Cheese. If nothing else, try these two items.
Of course, everything else on the menu is spectacular as well. Our friends had the steelhead and risotto off the restaurant week menu and they reported that it was outstanding.
Go on Sundays for Half Price Bottles of wine!

Our server was wonderful, described options well, acknowledged it was our first time at Purple and when she made a small error she brought a special treat. Our food, although good, was nothing special and tasted high in sodium instead of fresh and well seasoned. The restaurant was uncomfortably loud and warm.

This is the smallest of the Purple Cafe's that I have been to, but it was great! The food was amazing, as was the service.

Wine and dine in Woodenville
Awesome food, loved the wine flight choices! The free salted caramels were to die for, and what a caring touch! We tried a couple of wineries after lunch and definetly will be back! Great day with the girls and a great experience at this location!

Pricey but worth it
Great food, loved the waitress, wonderful wine. It was a bit expensive still even though we did the Seattle Restaurant week. I will probably come back just for a glass or two with friends. Also my friend can't eat gluten and she was impressed with the options available to her.

Best Purple location
My fave of the Purple locations. Still a bit loud, but excellent food, service and the ambience is much cozier and welcoming than the larger locations.

Great Mother's Day brunch!
I had a fabulous experience at Purple celebrating Mother's Day! The staff was attentive and pleasant (they always are) and the menu was outstanding. I loved the variety of mimosa's offered as well as a special kids brunch menu.
5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seven of us attended. The brunch menu is limited (only 1 person ordered from it), but the full lunch menu is available. Orders ranged from a salad to beef tenderloin. One person had wine (by the glass). All was very good or excellent.
Venue is all hard surfaces which reflected noise badly. Not a good location for intimate conversation but good for most else.

Love this place!
This is my go to for a great evening with my husband or a wine night with the girls!
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food at Purple Café and Wine Bar is really pretty good for the price point. They're almost on a par these days with Barking Frog, but a bit cheaper. They definitely know their way around cheeses and pairing those with wine and they have a terrific wine special on Sunday nights. It can get pretty crowded and noisy, but the outdoor seating in Woodinville is really pretty nice and comfy.

The food was very good and service was excellent. Everyone was very helpful and energetic. Thank you for making my special occasion memorable in every way.

We'd dined here before with friends & really enjoyed ourselves. We decided to celebrate our anniversary here this year. We opted for dining on the patio as it was a nice evening. We were seated by the door, so I was a little worried that it might feel congested there, but it wasn't. Our waitress greeted us like we were old friends & was very helpful. Our meal was delicious! My husband & I both ordered the filet mignon, they were both perfect. My husband even ate the mushrooms that were on it & he does NOT like mushrooms. He said they tasted sweet. Everything was absolutly wonderful! Definately will dine here again.

Bartender Mike was awesome
Bartender Mike was awesome while waiting for table. Food (entrees) ok...Risotto was over cooked/watery and NY strip not hot enough. Beet salad and baked brie fantastic.

Wonderful food, nice outside dining
We loved our experience at Purple Cafe. The staff was very professional and informative. My husband's risotto with morel mushrooms and my dinner (a tenderloin appetizer) were delicious. Wine, lovely table outside, beautiful evening! We will be back!

A New Fave
This was our first visit to Purple Cafe. We enjoyed out visit so much that not only did we dine here for brunch, we also returned on the same day for dinner. Great location, great service.

Very good dinner
We had a very nice lunch & dinner recently at the Purple Cafe in woodinville. The only reason this restaurant didn't receive 5 stars is because service both times was a little off. Excellent food & wine.

Joy amid much noise
Lot's of fun, great wine, exquisite designed presentation of the dishes and although difficult to talk because of the noise, it was a super evening.

Purple Birthday Celebration
As always, the food and wine were amazing.
Our server was amazing! She embraced our corky group of friends and family whom were visiting. Also, she really made an effort to ensure I enjoyed my birthday, especially with the special treat to chocolate cake.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Smooth service, great value
Went for Sunday brunch and had a terrific experience: good menu, excellent choice of wines (many at half price during brunch!!), sensitive and friendly service. Liked it so much we went back for dinner that night! (Slightly less warm service at dinner but will happily go back.)

Best Chopped Salad
So I'm addicted to their chopped salad - seriously, can't get better than this. Bottle of wine, Sunday 1/2 price off great bottles, and salad for a perfect mid-day lunch. Enjoy - one of my favorite places.

Green with envy
Wished we lived on the area so we could return again and again to this super eatery. Menu was inventive with unique items. Wine flights available in addition to glasses and bottles. Like having the options. Hostesses and servers exceptional.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Most all the dishes we had were great. good servings and delicious. Chicken was a little dry in the masala dish.
and your hot serving plates melted our chocolate covered carmels - good, but messy.
service was excellent.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great way to start an afternoon of wine tasting in Woodinville. Our first time at the PC and definitely an experience to be repeated soon. My wife had a couple of items from the small plate menu, a shrimp and a beef dish and both were excellent. I had the one if the Liza's and it was OK. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and while it was nice to be seated outdoors, the proximity to the car park could have been a problem...except this is Woodinville and everyone drove a hybrid Lexus!

We always have a great time there. They treat us well and are very attentive.

We met my boyhood friend who I had not seen in 57 years. We arrived at 1, had a nice outside corner table, and stayed until 330. The staff let us talk, served great food and provided us with a very nice reunion.

Great Dinner at Purple Cafe
My wife and I had one of our finest dinners at The Purple Cafe in Woodinville. We were visiting from the northeast, and could not have chosen a better place to belatedly celebrate our 20th anniversary. We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our dinner. I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

The gorgonzola stuffed dates
The gorgonzola stuffed dates are amazing! Loved the shoe string fries also! Great cheeses and amazing wine! loved everything we ordered!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Purple always seems to deliver. I'm usually leery of restaurant steaks and theirs could have cut with a stare. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Food arrives promptly and hot, nicely plated and well portioned.

I hate review titles
This place was a nice find in the heart of Woodinville town center. We stopped at 4 other places in the same complex to get wine, sushi, more wine, coffee and finally went to dinner. The server was nice and let us take our time to decide. The wine list is extensive and the pairings are really fantastic.
The portions were modest, but people looking for huge servings are not going here either. I had the filet mignon with the green beans and had them hold the mushrooms; it was cooked perfectly. Overall, if you don't mind a bustling place and have some spare scratch (our bill for two was roughly 120 before tip) then this is a good one.

Good wine country destination
Nice wine list and tasty treats. Perfect stop on the wine country tour. We had 2 of the pizzas that were crispy and nicely done ( could have used a slightly heavier hand with the ingredients.

Mom's Birthday Lunch
Amazing food and service! I believe our server's name was Autumn and she was phenomenal!

We've been going to The Purple Cafe in Woodinville for several years. We've never had a bad experience there - the food and service are always top notch..
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful restaurant for a group of 6. The service was helpful and friendly. Go for the 3-course dinner, able to taste a lot for little.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent as usual
The food here is always very good and today was no exception. The service was awesome as well. This is a great spot to have lunch. the sign on the door says they are remodeling this week so its only going to get better at this location !

Good dinner, great service
Some girlfriends and I went to celebrate a birthday. The Purple was lively as ever. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly. My food was good. I had the mussels, which weren't as memorable as I hoped, but good. My friends had salad, one liked it the other not so much. Overall, we had fun and it was a great night.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noisy but tasty
Our reservation was for 7pm on a Thursday. When we arrived we could hardly hear one another. Service and food were great, and by 8 or so things had quieted considerably. We did the $30 dinner with wine pairing ($20), and everything paired nicely. We ordered an extra appetizer because we were hungry when we arrived, but the appetizers included with the meal were delivered so quickly we really didn't need it.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great 1st time find on line. Excellent everything. Had Caesar salad with giant Tiger prawns and the goat chs & Lavosh tray. Shared a bottle of vino with a friend who had the 1/2 BLTA & 1/2 Cobb salad. We will be back.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time with a friend
My best friend and I went for dinner but once we got there the appetizer menu looked so good we decided to have wine and appetizers. We tried the Baked Brie, cheese spreads, sweet potato fries, and some kind of cheese curds. Everything was so good and way too much food for just the two of us but fun to try it all out. After all that there is always some room for desert so we ordered the bread pudding and salted caramels. Needless to say we were very stuffed but also satisfied with our choices.

Restaurant week lunch with friends
Enjoyed the $15.00 lunch on Sunday. We got to double dip on the wine! Limited selection of wines are half price on Sundays. Good food, great value. Exceptional service. you have to have the chopped salad. The place is very loud so if you want to have a conversation during the meal ask to sit upstairs
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to dine. Warm and friendly atmosphere. The food was well prepared and served.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were there for Resteraunt week- 3 courses for 28.00 appetizer ,entree and desert-choices were great and the portions were large.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This has got to be one of my favorite places to go. Although a bit on the spendy side it just means we don't go too often.

Wonderful Happy Hour!
Darling husband and I went to Purple in Woodinville the other day for happy hour. Great choices on the menu. We selected delicious Bruschetta as well as Butternut squash soup and Tomato Bisque soup. We brought in our own bottle of wine. No charge for corkage which is just wonderful! Our waitress was attentive, efficient and very pleasant. We will come back to Purple again in the near future!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
WE GO THERE WHEN WE NEED A GOOD MENU LUNCH WITH WINE. ALWAYS GREAT!

Stopped at Purple's just for a date night with my spouse after work. We very much enjoyed the happy hour menu and house wine selection. It was great time at a nice spot.
