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 was our first outing to a real restaurant since COVID. We felt so safe and taken care of and the ambiance was festive and appreciative. The chicken salad was the best EVER!

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.

Service was friendly but not there enough. Food was bland and mediocre for the price. The best part were the shoestring fries.

I’ve had everything on the menu! To die for. My favorite is the chicken Marsala paired with any of their red blends. Sea salt caramels for dessert and baked Brie to start! Absolutely YUM!

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.

The baked brie is quite good - though maybe a notch below what it was a year ago. The pork shank was excellent. It's a bit noisy, but that's to be expected. One big drawback to the Woodinville Purple is the lack of parking - we had to park across the street.

I used to love Purple. Their menu is quite limited now, likely due to the shutdown. Went out to lunch with a friend and we picked this specifically for the trout, which was 86’d and there wasn’t any similar replacement. Ordered an alternate which had to be made twice due to adding an item that I was allergic to, which I had been clear about from the start. Despite the hiccups, the service was great and they did comp my meal.

Though the experience wasn’t awful, the steak was not good and covered in a sauce that soaked the fries. The service was ok, but we went to order dessert before they closed and the kitchen had already shut down. We were very close on time, but felt it would have been appropriate to give us a warning or last call.

The wine selection was good though and waitress was nice.

We had a frustrating evening at Purple on March 13,2021. Our server was new and the bill was very confusing. I had an Open Table $25 card which I utilized for the dinner. The server was confused and unable to figure out how to split the remaining difference so I ended up paying for the bill. I often come to Purple in Woodinville,, however this time I was very upset about the service. The meal was great!!

I'm going to blame this on COVID, but the food was not up to par by a long shot. I usually go here when wine tasting in Woodinville and have in the past always enjoyed this place - just not this time.

Food was great, but service was slow and kind of rude honestly. One of the waitresses brought us a dish that we did not order. She argued with us that we ordered it. She rolled her eyes at us and then left. We were bewildered. I’ve never had that happen at a restaurant before.
