Great place and great vibe!!
It is must in seattle
Very nice staff, great atmosphere. We had the butternut squash pasta special and it was delicious!
A great experience. Delicious Purple salad with steak. We will be returning.
We really enjoyed it. Excellent option
Amazing service, first time in Seattle and I’m so glad I came here for a Friday night girls dinner
The BEST place for a date night. All our food was delicious!
We love the space and the Lion's Tale cocktails were really good, but only 2 of the 4 dishes we ordered were good. The butternut squash soup was good, and grilled caeser salad was very good, but the fries were limp and cold and the burrata was not great either. The bread served with the burrata was grilled but cold so not super pleasant. We passed on dessert and unfortunately won't come back again. We'd been a good handful of years ago and remember the food as being great on that visit. Maybe it was just an off night in the kitchen.
Great food and wine pairings. Excellent menu in general. Lots of energy inside, music was a little loud for conversation.
Excellent seasonal menu and good service
a great spot for a nice dinner or celebration! sommelier was fabulous and so knowledgeable. service was slow but overall had everything we needed for a great dinner! baked brie is a must order!
Good service and all the dishes are delicious 👍🏻
Food was absolutely incredible! Perfect Restaurant for our wedding anniversary!
The waiter got a order wrong but was quick to recover and would accept us paying for it. We had a show to catch across the street and he made sure were out the door in on our way at the right time. Definitely, a recommend to see again.
Purple cafe Seattle
The Cesar salad was delicious
Ordered the putanesca special which came with thick spaghetti , olives and capers drenched in oil mixed with what tasted like sour Ragu sauce , I found 1 sliver of garlic and many onions - the entire dish was incredibly disappointing for this caliber of restaurant. Purple cafe in Woodinville is the restaurant for good food !
Super cool location. The vibe was great as soon as we walked into the restaurant. Wine selection was top notch and the food was delightful. We loved the pasta fussili with grilled chicken.
We had an excellent waitress who made our experience one of the best we’ve had at your restaurant. We would definitely recommend your establishment to friends.
The service was slow and lack luster. Appetizers sent to wrong table. Food mediocre And service very slow. I’d only return to sit at the bar for the great wine selection.
The server wasn’t very attentive and the truffle Mac and cheese didn’t have any truffle in it. The manager ended up comping us for our food to make up for everything, so that was good. Just disappointed in the experience :-/
Always a terrific meal and atmosphere at Purple! Can be a bit noisy but that never has bothered me.
Great food and wine. Great wine recommendation!
Celebrated my 13 year business anniversary with coworkers and friends. The staff was very pleasant and the food was delicious! Definitely will dine there again.
Been to this restaurant many times. Never received fries that looked double-fried and a baguette felt/tasted more than a day old (just warmed up). Hope they bring back their standards again on some things. The wine was delicious and the mushroom soup remained as good as always.
Always great food and enough variety for different palettes but not a large menu to get lost in. The wine selection is great and the wait staff is well versed on food pairings. Great go-to spot for dinner meetings or date night. Never disappoints.
Great food. Everything we tried was delicious. Great service and ambience. The seating is well spaced out.
EXCELLENT! Better than I expected! Surprised with the 50% discount on wine after purchasing 2 bottles. Was so nice to take home 2 more bottles of the fantastic wine we enjoyed.
Everything was on point at this restaurant. Everyone was super welcoming and friendly. The bartender listened to my likes/dislikes and made great suggestions in regards to food and wine pairings! I love the ambiance and will definitely be returning.
Our food was fantastic and our server was knowledgeable and very friendly! We will definitely be dining here again next time we're in Seattle!
Lovely place to dine and enjoy company of others. The food was superb.
The Purple Cafe has a lively atmosphere which is very fun. Our server was excellent-very attentive and efficient. The pasta dishes were reasonably priced and very tasty.
Had the most wonderful evening!
Food was outstanding!
Loved the Brie, soup and chicken.
Great atmosphere, wine and food!
This was our second visit to Purple and once again it was excellent! The mushroom soup and baguette was delicious! My son had the portobello mushroom burger and loved it. My husband had the vodka pasta dish with prawns and he was very happy. The wine duos are great and service was excellent! Can’t wait to return in November!
The atmosphere is great and I was seated earlier than my reservation allowed which was great.
The best parts of the food was the steak and fries and mussels.
The parts I could have done without was the Mac and cheese. I’m not sure why they used lasagna as their pasta noodle. The mussels were amazing but they put pasta shells in it.
The alcohol beverages recommended to us were great as well!
Overall, I give this place a 3.6/5
Nice ambiance, friendly staff.
Good range of food at reasonable price. Most of the check was two glasses of wine each of not the super expensive kind.
Great place to meet up with friends and family! Excellent menu variety! Delicious food and drinks! We come back every time we visit Seattle!
Started with the Sagely Advice. Then had the pan seared scallops with risotto. Finished with the apple dumpling. Amazing food, outstanding service, great ambiance.
Ordered the seared scallops and risotto. Scallops were very small and just 3 scallops were on the entree. Mostly it was a pile of risotto for a very expensive price. Another entree in our group was the burger which was not made to order and was cold. Cold french fries also. Very disappointing meal.
Loved the feel of this place and exploring the different wine duos. The baked Brie was excellent, as was the clam pasta special, and service was friendly and courteous. Hope to visit again soon!
This is my favorite restaurant in Seattle! The restaurant is beautiful and the food is incredible! Great service as well. We were late to our reservation and they were so nice about it. Highly recommend going here!
Pasta dishes were amazing. Gorgonzola dates were unbelievable. Barbara was good as well. Wine list extensive and not over priced. Great staff. This is what dining was like pre Covid. Great evening. Thank you
We were there for a joint anniversary dinner with our son and daughter in law and it was perfect. My son (who is not a wine drinker) even ordered a wind flight. The food and service was excellent!
