Purple Cafe and Wine Bar - Woodinville Ratings and Reviews
My meal was amazing! We were with another couple celebrating my husbands birthday and only 2 of us had a good meal. Both my husband and friend ordered the filet and with a hefty price of $42 I would expect an amazing steak! My husbands meal in general was cold ans they both complained that the cut wasn’t good for a filet- very tough to cut. My friend sent hers back and was unable to order something else since the server said it would be a least a half hour to prepare anything.
The table next to us also had 4 seated until their friends joined them and they added another 4. Between the high pitched voices and the woman who insisted and standing in my personal space with her behind literally in my face that was super annoying. They never figured out that they were being crazy loud and apparently don’t care about personal space.
I would try the place again but I was disappointed for sure.
We so thoroughly enjoyed our brunch at Purple! The menu is eclectic, offering interesting choices for everyone. My husband and I had the classic breakfast offering. Our eggs were cooked perfectly to our request, as was the delicious bacon. The hash brown herbed potatoes were so very tasty. Our adult son had a wonderful kale Caesar Salad, with steak, and it was absolutely fantastic! Service is always superb! Awesome experience!
I've been to Purple Cafe many times and it hasn't been on my top 10 list of favorite restaurants but that is changing. I had the best chicken salad at the Woodinville location and will be going back soon to have it again. It is cozy in the winter with a nice fireplace. Parking can be a challenge so plan ahead.
My husband and I went to Purple to celebrate an anniversary. The service was amazing with Bryan, and the food delicious. Bryan was super-attentive to our every need and made us feel so relaxed and unrushed. We enjoyed every bite of our dinner and were delighted with the complimentary desserts that were offered to celebrate the occasion. The only suggestion we would make would be to offer a little more illumination for reading the menu. Bryan came to our rescue with a little pen flashlight! The Purple never disappoints. We'll always look to sit in Bryan's section for our next visits there.
A very good dining experience with our daughter and husband who were visiting from Colorado. Service was friendly and the menu had a variety of interesting choices. A favorite was the bacon wrapped meatloaf with mashed potatoes and carrots. Reasonably price pairing of wine with the entree.
Service was slow. Hubby got his wine right away, but we needed to remind our waiter that we had ordered two glasses of wine. He had forgotten what I had ordered. When the food arrived it was quite cold - my crab cakes Benedict was lukewarm, but hubby's quiche was cold inside. Had it been at proper serving temperature, the food would have been outstanding!
I like this restaurant BUT the noise level is way too high. It is difficult to hear your companions and you are always speaking loudly just to be heard. This has been the case always at this restaurant. I wish they would fix this problem. The noise does not add "energy"; instead it is exhausting and such a relief to leave.
When we arrived for our reservation the noise level already precluded table conversation and then a child upstairs started screaming and yelling continuously. It was UNBEARABLE and the manager did nothing about it even though several tables, including ours, requested to be moved. He finally addressed the issue and asked those unbelievably rude patrons to leave. It had ruined the first 45 minutes of our evening and the salted caramels he gave us at the end were nice, but not enough. Also 2 of the 4 people in our party came specifically for the quinoa salad and it was off the menu. There need to be more salad options, heavy and light.
This restaurant is always loud, but when screaming children are allowed to stay without the manager's intervention, in the evening, the whole dinner is ruined.
Made reservations for a weekend brunch here since The Commons were booked - left just as happy! We got seated right away and the food was great. The only thing that lacked a little was the service, it took 15 minutes to even get a drink order in, but it was OK. We were celebrating my birthday and we got treated to a complimentary dessert. :) Lovely experience, will be back!
Food was mediocre. I got the short ribs and cannot honestly say it was delightful. Taste was lacking. We also got dessert which I chose the brownie. Brownie was super crunch on top. Quality/price wasn’t great.
We’ve been prob ten minutes, and sadly this round the food was lacking.
Great service though.
Purple Cafe in Woodinville is reliably good, if a little noisy when crowded, as it was when we first arrived. Had a pork chop special, with pomegranate sauce and seeds, served with an outstanding vegetable medley. We have eaten there for both lunch and dinner maybe 6-8 times and have never had a bad experience with food or service. Not particularly cheap pricing, but well prepared. House wine is perfectly fine, but they could use a few more offerings in the beer department. Nothing offered on draft.
We visit Purple Cafe at least every six weeks. This weeks visit was OK, not great. I ordered the New York Strip 10 oz for $37.00. The steak was cooked and seasoned perfect, yet the cut itself was terribly fatty and tough. Not what I have come to expect from the Purple Cafe. Hopefully our next visit redeems the restaurant.
We arrived several minutes prior to our 6:45 PM reservation and were seated immediately. Service was attentive without being intrusive. The menu was creative and offered a number of interesting choices in all categories. The wine list is large and offers a reasonable range of local, regional and international selections, although the "by the glass" offerings are, in my opinion, too limited. The food was excellent, presented nicely and promptly without being rushed. I was unimpressed with the dessert menu, but that just made it easier to avoid unnecessary sweets. Parking in this location can be a bit of a challenge on busy nights, so arrive early. An overflow lot is available but not particularly easy to find at night or clearly marked.
