We felt our experience was a bit disappointing. Our server really seemed like she couldn’t be bothered by us. The food was good but not good enough for the price, in my opinion.

Things are popping at Purple, lively atmosphere, same great food, good wine menu. Parking there is pretty ridiculous (i.e. hard or impossible), service was a little slow but we had the time to spare. We keep going back because it's an overall good deal and we like the vibe.

The biggest disappointment was ordering what was listed on the menu and the kitchen clearly substituted ingredients (main ones) for somethings that were close but not the ingredients on the menu. Like the blue cheese put on the grilled cheese. Some people like blue cheese but I do not. And a didn’t fish other than the halibut for the fish and chips. It is fine to have something different, you just have to tell us and if we don’t like we can order something different. We are not ones to make a fuss at the table, plus we did not have time for the kitchen to redo our order.

Just thought I should let you know though.

Great wine selection, chicken Marsala is delicious. Chop salad with steak was a solid choice with high protein and still light.

Purple always has great food and service. I normally would rate a 5 star across the board, except the Music was a bit to loud to enjoy normal conversation causing other tables to talk louder than normal. We finally asked our server to turn down the music which was much better!! Thank you!! Dinning should be about the food and ambiance, not drowned out by music. The music selection was a bit obnoxious as well with screeching vocals. Perhaps a softer background music without vocals would be more suitable for everyone’s enjoyment :)

Came for our anniversary, I think this was our 3rd time here. Our waitress was wonderful and very nice! We ordered a bottle of wine, the Nebbiolo, and for dinner we had the chicken Marsala (fantastic!!! Will be ordering again!) and pesto pasta with added chicken (underwhelming, lacked flavor) Definitely will come back again!

It seems that the menu is more restricted than before. Same with the wine list. Finally, we ordered nice bottle of Pinot noir and it was about 12 degrees too hot. A bit off their game, I would say.

We each got a wine flight and our server was very accommodating by switching out one of the wines on the flight for us! We had the Baked Brie, which is my all-time favorite from Purple. This was one of my first outings since COVID and it felt safe, and the atmosphere was a lot of fun.

I love Purple! For weekend brunch they are currently offering only 2 brunch-y options and a Cinnamon Roll along with their regular menu. The Crab Cake Benedict and Breakfast Sandwich were both delicious, as were the breakfast potatoes which were perfectly crisp. I just wish they had two or three more options for Brunch.

Service was fantastic, in particular in light of how busy the restaurant was.

We were celebrating a birthday with wine tastings in the area and we needed to eat something between wineries. We explained our time needs when we arrived at Purple Cafe and we received quick service that allowed us to be on time at our next appointment.
The food was great, as usual and the service excellent.

Great meal and wonderful server. We arrived at opening, we were seated outside, but somehow we were told that the heat lamps couldn’t be turned on for a half an hour. We were quite cold! The lamps were never turned on, brrrr

It was a great meal -- both the service and the food. The place was full but not packed. Meatloaf was excellent and the wine was great (we did two wine flights). The service was attentive but not overbearing

Purple used to have great food, now just so so (all our meals). Waitress wanted to rush us a bit. The best part is the physical space and seeing our friends. Won’t be back...boo!

I had a reservation for seating outside. We were seated inside. Reasoning, we were late. However, we had called 10 min before the reservation time that we were running late and were told the reservation would be held. I'm somewhat disappointed with this experience. They should have told us that they won't hold the reservation when we called if that is the policy.

First, we are fans of this restaurant and have been going frequently for years, but they have been off their game recently. I had the chicken Marsala and the chicken was very dry, and the carrots were very hard, almost raw. It was unsatisfactory and I did not even finish the dinner. It was very disappointing. I hope they improve the quality as we love the atmosphere and staff.

It was our 42nd anniversary and we were given complimentary deserts, which was a surprise. We greatly appreciated this. We were waited on promptly by Armando and he was always checking with us to see if there was anything else we needed.
It was truly a great experience and will not hesitate to dine there again.

Yes we are coming out of Covid, but i should of checked the menu as it was the same short menu that was available the last time i went (during first Covid Phase 2) Food is good but just wanted to see a different menu as this one has become boring & "same o"
I also forgot that they have a bad habit of charging you sales tax on top of your "TIP" hate this practice!!
The staff are always good :)
