Great menu options and especially love ‘fried chicken Wednesday’s’. Service was also outstanding. Server even recognized us from a previous visit.

Just didn’t really care for the wine flight of the month or the French dip sandwiches. The homemade aujus wasn’t good at all.
Still...great place to go sit outside on a warm evening. We just made poor food and wine choices.

We went with friends for dinner. The red wine list they offered us only had 10 wines which was very strange for the Purple. The waitress did no know anything about the wines on the list. We decided to try two, both were not good. Then got a couple of flights to try the others since the list was short. Only liked two of the 10. Calamari was good. So was the burrata. The steak and fries were bad, so was the pesto pasta. Looked like food for a preschooler. Lobster Mac was good and the salad (Can’t remember the name). Should have been much better at that price point.

The Shrimp+Fries appetizer & the lobster/crab mac and cheese are MUST HAVES. I could eat both of those every day forever. Great wine as well, love getting a small trio to taste. Always great service.

My only complaint is that our server did not ask us if we wanted more drinks (we did) and when she finally did we were done with our meals and didn’t want them anymore. She lost the additional $$!

We have gone to Purple several times but it seems to be deteriorating from a service standpoint to the food options. No specials at all. The service was very hit or miss - mostly miss. I had the halibut which was cooked perfectly and had tasty veggies. My husband's BLT was good except for the bread that couldn't hold up to the inside of the sandwich. Would have ordered more wine if the server would have paid us some attention. Ended up having to ask for the bill. Nobody ever saw our empty water glasses. Becoming very disappointed in this restaurant. It just isn't the classy place it used to be.

Server was awesome! The hostess who reminded us of a two hour limit was rude. We were in the process of paying and it was a birthday dinner, so we were disappointed and spoke to manager.

Love Purple and we’ve been loyal customers for years. Typically the food, service and wine are all excellent and we’ve had dozens of fantastic meals there over the past 5 years. The past two visits have left a lot to be desired. Service was poor- took over 75 minutes to actually place our orders yesterday and our server acted like we were inconveniencing him for being there. Food was mediocre - grilled cheese sandwiches were skimpy and the onions on them were over cooked and dry.

Prior visit, we had a party of 6 and a dog. Called in advance to confirm we could be seated together and bring our dog and then we arrived to find out no one communicated their promise to anyone else. Sat at separate tables and our food was overly salty. Would have complained but our server checked on our food before anyone took a bite and didn’t return for almost 40 minutes.

We’re hoping the restaurant is just adjusting to new capacity and getting used to being more full again, but both meals with 4 people at 1 and 6 at the other were so slow. We were there for 3+ hours. We had to cancel our wine tasting due to the slow service.

Again, not deal breakers or reasons to not go back; but when you’re spending $120 on lunch and nearly $400 on dinner and wine it’s disappointing.

Slow service to begin the evening. We sat at our table for a good 10 mins before anyone came over. It was a slow night which made this a little frustrating. Once we had a server, our service was better. Ordered the chicken marsala which was bone in breast meat on a bed of carrots and potatoes. It was essentially chicken confit, but the marsala sauce was what really didn't fit. Very sweet and just didn't make sense with the roasted chicken and veggies. Had the apple pie with scoop of ice cream. I enjoyed it but the pie was a bit dry, even with the ice cream. A drizzle of caramel would have been nice.

This restaurant was not following COVID protocol was overbooked. It was so loud in the outside section that we could not even hear each other speak. I asked the waitress if we could move inside and she said "no." We ate and wanted to leave ASAP. Will not be back to this location.

I’m a frequent diner at this restaurant but this evening was not the experience I’ve had in the past. The waitress took almost 20 minutes before greeting us and then was never very attentive to our needs. When the appetizers came I had to go ask for plates, utensils and napkins which she said she would bring earlier but never did.
To add to the ambiance our neighboring table had a woman with the most obnoxious laugh we almost left before even getting started. Obviously not the restaurant’s fault but hoping to have a romantic evening for our anniversary. Didn’t work out this time.
