Woww what a service Eddie and Carolyn there were amazing the food was wonderful I’ll definitely coming back again. Never had Profecional service like this
Great place very friendly and great drinks. Would definitely come back.
We had three appetizers that were out of this world!! The mac&cheese was delightful.
The service was excellent and the ambiance was very nice.
The spicy scrimp and fries has this sauce that I would take a bath in😂
No explanation regarding digital menu. Paper card that included menu did not include reference to the digital symbol -- rather, it invited diners to visit the retail wine shop. Given that the restaurant was not busy, long wait for server to visit our table. Earlier visit would have (at least) cleared up confusion about menu. The description of the "Duo" wine option was not made clear by the server. The digital bill-pay option did not work (at least based on the message displayed.) My credit card was still charged, but it's possible it was only a credit hold. Overall, we were not taken care of, which is a baseline expectation when we dine out. The experience was not special.
Service was excellent, but my medium rare steak was actually at the far side of medium well. I’d gladly return based on the service alone, but I’d avoid the steak.
Purple never misses. The entire experience was great!
Amazing Food! Service was little slow. I got my desert spoon 10 mins after getting dessert and dessert was bought alongside Mains. May be one odd day for them. Would definitely give them another try as food and ambiance is amazing. Loved their Chicken Marsala and Basil Pesto Pasta.
Good collection of reds!
Great spot to meet with friends for delicious cocktails, glass of wine and a tasty bite. I love this place!
Food was amazing! Our waiter was great as well, knowledgeable on wine. They were super nice and changed our reservation time too.
Spectacular service, and the wine list is a lot of fun!
Overall it was good but not great. My boyfriend ordered a pinot noir that was great but the syrah I ordered wasn't very good or like any other syrah's I'd had. The ambience was energetic and our server was polite and attentive. However we were seated behind the reception desk and could overhear loud conversations between the staff about non-work related topics. Sort of distracting.
We drove all the way from Oregon to experience this incredible place and it was totally worth it. The ambiance was phenomenal, the service was impeccable, the food was delicious and the wine was top notch! We will definitely be visiting again! The wine staircase is something you could only dream of and they even did a special wine pairing for my wife! We can’t wait to go back! Thank you Purple Cafe and Wine Bar!!!
Great restaurant with great food. Think my server was a trainee so she was only alright but the restaurant was also very busy, so I don’t blame her. Always a good dinner at Purple
Service was fantastic, amazing wine list. Honestly it was their second day opened so I expected a mess, however they clearly had their stuff together. Only shared an appetizer but it was pretty on point.
Fire! Great place!! Service was great. Food was amazing
Purple Cafe is our go-to for special occasions and/or delicious food, but this year on our Anniversary they really spoiled us. Thank you sooo much PC for the continued amazing service and making our night even more special.
The food was great. The sommelier had some great suggestions and we tried two great wines based on his suggestions. The food was really great. Appetizers were all amazing . Can’t wait to go again.
A very pleasant dining experience. The food was creative and delicious, with usual offerings too (like french dip sandwiches). Great service. Quiet atmosphere and able to carry on conversation easily. Very good wine selection. Looking forward to the next time.
Had a great dinner for 2 here. Food was delicious, restaurant was spacious and classy, with an impressive wine list. (Love the duo wine option!) Would definitely come back again. (I felt very safe dining here.)
One person in our party had several food allergies and the waiter and chef were extremely accomodating!
The food experience was awesome!!! We will be returning
Steak came out cold. Service was poor and the waitress just shrugged and offered to warm it up for me. Ambiance is great.
The folks at Purple took all appropriate Covid-19 precautions. We felt safe and well care-for.
Great service, good food, cool ambiance for friend gathering or date night.
Great service and food. Lots of distance. Sanitizer on the table. Nice!
Tempura fish was excellent. Light crispy coating, very warm silky cod on the inside. Friends enjoyed chicken Marsala. Noise level was low unlike pre Covid times.
What a treat! We were so surprised when our host walked us up the wine tower to our secret seats inside the top! We went to celebrate our two year anniversary and had the time of our lives! Such good hospitality and great food and wine.
Great find. Nice decor service and food. The olives and the bread pudding were phenomenal.
Pete was our server for the evening. I must say of all the times I've visited I'm always blown away by the food quality and service. I can't say enough good things about Purple Cafe, it's a go to for special occasions!
Didn't care for the fish and chips thought the meal was over priced, I did manage to taste the chicken marsala was amazing. The decor was good just the right amount of fancy. Tried the sauvignon blanc Kerloo Cellars love the crips and slightly bitter taste.
Wonderful experience. Friendly staff and our sever was the best. Highly recommend this restaurant!
We had not been out to a sit in restaurant since COVID. The food was great, but what really sold me was the care taken to ensure social distancing, the staff was focused on safety and still have five star service! Great experience.
Excellent food and service in a beautiful setting.
Come here and enjoy fine food, remarkable wines and attentive unobtrusive service. Excellent experience. Will be back.
We visited Purple for our anniversary this year, and were treated so well by the staff, who took special care to make us feel welcome and ensure we had a delightful time. Outstanding service, and delicious food. Will certainly visit again soon!
Great date night spot. They are super careful with all the necessary COVID-19 protocols so you can feel safe dining out. All the main plates are good, but the best thing to me is the baked Brie appetizer.
Great choice! Try the fig pizza with balsamic vinaigrette 🙏
Thank you so much for amazing experience, you guys really are doing a great job with COVID 19 social distance!
Everyone was great about following all the new protocols. All tables were spread out throughout the restaurant. Staff was amazing.
Great service. As always!!
