    We haven’t been to purple café in many years so decided to try it again We thought the food and service was very good. Our soup and salad came surprisingly before the appetizers were delivered because the server had somehow not gotten the order in correctly however, without even asking, they gave us the appetizers for free. Food was very good. Two of us had a meatloaf which was great, because couldn’t finish and had it for lunch the next day, one of the desserts we ordered was the bread pudding, which seemed more like a coffee cake and was hard. when we mentioned this, they took it off the bill no question. Would suggest having a fish dish on the dinner menu as fish and chips isn’t available except for lunch. Overall a very nice experience and great meal.

    Took my friend there for brunch. We both had an amazing time. Our server Armando was friendly, professional, and patient with us. We got the flight of mimosas, which was delightful. We also ordered the baked brie as an appetizer. And for our entrées, I had the French omelette and my friend got the barbecue burger. We also shared a side of the truffle, macaroni and cheese, and it was so so yummy. the prices here are a little bit high compared to other brunch places I’ve been to, but the ambience and the service make it all worth it. Overall love Purple wine and bar, and will most definitely be coming back.

    The food and service at Purple Cafe are outstanding. Avery was our server and she was attentive, knowledgeable, and quick. It's very dark inside and there was some constant and annoying construction noise that we could easily hear inside the restaurant, but those are the only negatives.

    I'd been told by a foodie friend that Purple was THE place for a great brunch. So I was really disappointed in the food and experience. A half a cup of soup with a mostly bread grilled cheese? A croque Madam that with tasteless sauce and a near death experience with berries on the French toast that was specifically ordered without berries. Our server was nice about it but didn't take anything off the bill.

    We dined at the downtown location and absolutely LOVED everything about our experience - the food, the drinks, the service - all were fantastic! We decided to head east to the Woodinville location for brunch and I'm not sure if it was just a bad decision to go for brunch but the experience there was the exact opposite of the downtown location (I cannot fault the service/ customer service because that was very good, however, it is a restaurant, and we were there for the food) The good: baked brie - the entire table loved this - it tasted absolutely delicious!! The BLTA and the crab benedict were both very good. The meh: the champagne flight was nice (a bit overpriced for the amount served) The bad: The fried calamari came out severely undercooked and we had to send it back; the second attempt was not really better BUT at least it was cooked. The Drunken Shortrib Hash was extremely soupy and had no flavor at all. The "charred" broccolini was undercooked and had entirely too much dressing. The breakfast board is ridiculously overpriced for what you actually get: maybe (and I'm being generous) 1 oz of cheese cut into little pieces, 8 olives, 2 small circular slices of cured meat, a good dollop of apricot preserves, and the egg was cooked well, however, there were no almonds or goat cheese on my board at all and at a $25 price point, that is a bit too ridiculous (this was what I ordered and it's basically the only thing on the menu that did not need to be cooked but my order was served almost 10 minutes after everyone else at the table). On a side note - we were honest (and polite about it!!) with our server about the food quality when she asked. I would avoid the Woodinville location

    Once again Purple comes through with an excellent lunch and great service - thank you, Avery! Our party of 5 was held up and arrived late - parking there is always a major challenge - but accommodated us very well and cheerfully. The burgers and BLTAs were huge and tasty, the fries excellent and service prompt and friendly. Such a reliably great place!

    Food, drinks, and ambiance were great! The service was horrible. My girlfriend and I went here to celebrate our anniversary, and had mad reservations for 7pm. We showed up about 15 minutes early and sat at the bar to get a pre-dinner drink. The bartender came over, dropped two waters for us, and then never approached us again. He was standing behind the bar, polishing glasses, talking with other guests, but would not make eye contact with us so that we could order something. We sat there for roughly five minutes trying to get his attention before I verbally asked if we could order something. He told us one minute, and disappeared in the back. By the time he came back, and took our order, the hostess told us our table was ready. Hoping we could shake off that negative experience we moved to the table were our server greeted us, and said that he would be right back. Another several minutes went by without menus or water, and our server came by and asked what we would like. I said that we didn't know what our options were (due to no menus), and he said that he would bring a menu by. He came by with the menus, left, and did not come back for another ten minutes. At this point we have been at Purple for over 30 minutes, been. greeted by three people, did not have anything to drink or eat, and having a hard time flagging down out server. I finally was able to get his attention, asked if we could place an order with him, and he obliged. After we received our bottle of wine and our meals, we did not see our server for the next 45 minutes. There was no check-in to see how the food was, refill on wine service, or a hint of the level of service Purple is known to have. Our bill came in at a bit over $200 and I think our server spent a total of 45 seconds interacting with us over the 60 minutes we were there. Having spent 20+ years in the service industry it pained me to leave a 10% tip, but my hope is that it went to the kitchen as that is who it should belong to.

    This is where we come every year for our wedding anniversary (this being our 5th) and it was always good. This year was AMAZING! No massive wholesale changes, but you could tell there was a definite upgrade in the little details, slight changes here and there, and it made our night wonderful. Thank you.

    Never asked if we wanted drinks Never were introduced to a waiter Had one person show up and ask us if we were ready to order and never saw that person again. Another person brought our food. Another person brought our check and no one ever came to pick it up. I had to hold it in the air to catch the attention of someone walking by to get it. Food was excellent so I will give them that. But I tipped $0, which I NEVER do, because I have no idea who I would even be tipping. Not sure who our waiter was. I will not eat here again. Not worth a $100+ meal and didn't even get wine.

    Service was absolutely terrific! However, it was very cold in the restaurant--we had our coats on and were still freezing the entire evening. And, it was so loud we couldn't hear our tablemates. The food was good, but a little too much spice and it was more expensive than we thought some of the dishes were worth. I guess it just wasn't our night.

    I liked the restaurant but it was so dark I had to use the light on my phone to read the menu. Even though I was on a date and the food was good, I was taken back by the price of the items on the menu. If I didn't have a gift card for $50 I probably wouldn't have gone there for dinner. Parking was a nightmare. The strip mall parking lot was so full cars that some were parking in the fire lane. I had to park a few blocks away and even then I got a warning for parking in the wrong location. They need to improve that before I go back there.

    We've been coming to Purple Cafe ever since they opened .. both at Woodinville and in Seattle. Food and service have always been excellent. Always on my recommended list. On the -ve side: Hard surfaces at both places make conversation a challenge. Parking at Woodinville can be problematic due to the expanded number of adjacent cafes and wine tasting rooms. This is something the City planning department needs to seriously consider as the area expands.

    Seemed odd to have the Seattle week menu online and a paper menu at the table for the normal menu. The meat loaf seemed more like a meat sausage, round slices that had the skin removed. Particularly noticeable in the end sausage piece I was given

    Went for restaurant week. Their menu choice was too expensive ($65) so we ordered ala carte. Meal and service was good. Several of their menu items have gotten too expensive so it limits our choices. Will return to order specific items but would not go back to just see what looks good.

    Food was okay but did not live up to the hype I had heard, was expecting better to be honest. My steak was cooked well but under seasoned and everything else on the plate (potatoes & vegetable stew basically) did not belong. Had mentioned we were celebrating a birthday upon reservation but no mention of it before, during or after the meal. I may return to try something else on the menu and see if it’s this was a fluke experience.

    Longtime customer, and disappointed in what we experienced. Came in for our reservation and waited at the check in stand 5 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. Given staffing issues over the past two years, this is always understandable, except that in this case, we saw at least three employees standing around doing nothing or chatting. This includes the person who eventually came and seated us. As an observation, I noticed this happening the entire extent of our stay. Odd. We have all been through a lot in the past few years. I have always been patient and even overtipped what little staff have been available as a rule. This visit really made no sense other than maybe poor training, management, or both. Not sure we will be back. Purple downtown and Woodinville have been my family's go to Birthday spot. Hoping downtown has fared better.
