Food was excellent, lots of options. We went on a Thursday noon for lunch and the place was very busy, nearly every table on the lower portion was filled. Two things were disappointing: First was how closely everyone was sat, you could easily over hear conversations from the next table over without them yelling. The second was the waitress. While friendly, she (or the kitchen) mistook my side order of fries for a mixed green salad which was overly bitter. they did correct it but it took two waitresses to figure it out. Second, she gave us both glasses of room temperature water but didn't leave a decanter with water and it took having to flag her down to make her aware that my coworker needed more water. Third, she came back to the table after we asked for the check but she forgot the check. This wouldn't have been a problem if we weren't on a tight timeline.

Overall the experience was okay. The food was worth it.

Before an event at Benaroya, a friend and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at Purple. We both had salads--I had the full-sized chopped salad, and she had the smaller seasonal salad with kale. She was happy with hers, and mine was absolutely delicious with a myriad of flavors that all sang a happy song together. My salad was $15, not a bad price, especially in downtown Seattle, and I couldn't eat all of it, so shared some with her, and she liked it, as well. I was sad that she was dieting, as I would have loved to have tried a dessert, but that will be the next time!
