We tried the wagyu beef and it wasn’t for us. We understand this is a high price, fancy cut of meat, but we did not enjoy it. Maybe our palates are just sub par? Otherwise it was a lovely evening and we had a great time!

We enjoy the restaurant and especially appreciate Ashley, who is always friendly and welcoming. She makes your restaurant better!

Big disappointment...have been a regular customer in Kirkland for years and occasionally in Bellevue...waiter took the idea of casual dress to heart...rumpled flannel plaid shirt that would have looked better in a pub or the not the Purple image. The new York steak was prepared as ordered - very rare but the cut was sinewy and had grizzle and was poorly trimmed...even the steak knife could not get through dog liked it though. The fries with the steak were rubbery and cold....the competition in B'vue is keen and Purple needs to step up.

Waiter did his job well enough but seemed a little aloof and distracted. We enjoyed our food and the overall experience and would definitely go back.

Went for happy hour on valentines day. We got a bunch of appetizers, they were half off, drinks were on discount as well. The food was absolutely amazing and affordable during happy hour! Loved every dish, we will certainly be back.

Slow wait staff. Chicken Marsala was a joke. $15 for parking?

I typically love Purple and my dish (the Lamb ragu) was great. My husband's steak was just meh. The appetizer was good but not amazing. I think if you have unlimited budget for dining and a really good bottle of wine it's a very nice place but if you want to pay under $50 for a bottle you're headed to the wrong spot.

Open mess hall style environment that some may like. Chicken had no flavor, slow service and VERY noisy. Not my style.
