Consistently good value and service
Purple is true to its colors: Honest food and reasonable prices with pleasant service. The character of each Purple restaurant is rustic and unusual. It's great, whether you do a business luncheon or entertain friends. We love their innovative menu.

A great dining experience
We went to Purple/Kirkland last Saturday for my husband's birthday. The food (Cheese flight), wine, and our entrees were superb. Our server (I'm sorry but I don't recall her name) was attentive and charming. I have been to Purple a number of times (this was my first visit apart from the downtown Seattle restaurant) and I am always very pleased with the food and service. Keep up the good work!

We went for the Seattle Restaurant
We went for the Seattle Restaurant Week and the menu choices were awesome. Very good food, the atmosphere was perfect for a date. Our server was awesome; attentive but not gave us privacy as well. Great experience.

Great experience - but the chairs?
We loved our food, wine and our service... but those chairs are impossible to move and not comfortable!

When I arrived I was told
When I arrived I was told that their computer was down at The Purple Cafe, and it didn't matter that I had an Open Table reservation online, as there was nothing she could do about it, with no computer. I was told that there was enough room at the time, and was seated in a prime spot near the rollup doors and outside seating area. So, I thought that this reservation would not even be documented, and am pleased to see that it is.

OUTDOOR DINING YOU ARE SITTING IN A PARKING LOT WHERE IT IS NOISY. MOTOR CYCLES REVING ENGINES AND CARS CONSTANTLY GOING BY. HARD TO TALK. FOOD WAS OKAY BUT HIGH PRICED.

One of our faves
We went to Purple Kirkland to celebrate our 43 anniversary. We chose Purple Kirkland because we had a gift card, and because we can walk to it from home, and because we love the food. The food didn't disappoint. We were there for happy hour so enjoyed a white wine, beer, and bruschetta off the happy hour menu--all wonderful. For dinner I had the special pan seared halibut--amazing; husband had scallops linguini--also amazing. Our waiter was delightful. He was getting married the following week so we shared that we were celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary. He was most impressed. He also compted us a dessert--the chocolate bourbon cake that was delicious. A very nice evening!

We had the best meal of our 3 week trip here. Wonderful cuisine, great flavor combinations. Got an authentic rosé wine from Provence. Our server was polite and efficient, all the staff friendly. Chic but friendly decor.
So many restaurants disappoint, at any price. Purple exceeded our expectations a a reasonable price.

Perfect girls night out
Great meal celebrating a dear friends birthday. Our server Elliott was outstanding, in fact I would return to this specific Purple just to have Elliott as my server. He made our night. Amazing food, always love the brie in pastry, fabulous wine. Love Purple! Also thought the table next to us with the two young girls with the milk flights was so clever I want to bring my kids in just for this.

Took my GF to lunch for her birthday. We enjoyed the small chopped salad and the chicken salad, also small, which were both adequate. The server, Brian, was very courteous and offered us a dessert on the house for our celebration. All in all, a very pleasant experience. Would go back.

Pleased with Purples as always
My friend and I went here for lunch during Restaurant Week this week. One of my favorite menu items was one of the special menu, so I choose that of course. Can't go wrong with their BLTA. The daily soup, a potato leek, was delish. The bread pudding was good, but honestly I was anticipating something larger than the size of a scallop. Really? But I was pleased nonetheless and will return, time and time again.

Have eaten at Purple many times ( the pizza is always a good deal) The lamb meatball risotto special was very tasty. The one dish that fell flat was pumpkin ravioli. Thick pasta, small amount of filling and absolutely swimming in butter....not the restaurant's best effort
