We had a great time, but despite not being full, the noise level made it difficult to have a conversation at a reasonable level.

Out of the many different restaurant choices with better parking - I will plan to go there over Purple. Many moons ago I used to frequent Purple in Kirkland and it was always friendly and accommodating. When I made my reservation for taking my mother and aunt out for a Saturday lunch I did not expect the level of service we were provided with. The food was ok nothing to get excited about my aunt ordered the chop salad no protein and she loved it. Even though it showed up with chicken on it and the server was upset she didn’t want it btw she is a vegetarian. The rest of our service was more like and inconvenience for him. The one nice point was the wine flight.

Loved the Purple Chopped salad. The blend of flavors was delightful. Crab cakes small but delicious. Roast beef French dip -just Ok, though the shoestring French fries delicious.

Besides the host being rude, everything else was up to par. The music was a bit loud, as the noise of people talking gets louder cause they can't hear each other.
Food was good, menu has slightly changed, everything else was good.

Very disappointed in the menu, went for brunch, no longer serving brunch, ordered the BLTA and the roof of my mouth is raw because the bread was so hard. My husband ordered a breakfast sandwich from the commons, both owned by Heavy Group and was told that he could not eat it in the restaurant.

At first our server said, ‘Your gift card is expired’. I said, NO, I just called yesterday abs read the number to your organization and they said I had $25.00. She could have said, let’s’ try again, before telling me it was expired.
It did work the second try.

I had a inside reservation for one. There was a lot of confusion when checking in and was offered (multiple times) to sit outside with a heater. Hostess needed to confirm with server to seat me. Received a seat 3 feet from door that was pretty much outside. Many other 2-4 top tables were unoccupied during my visit. Waitress was great, but overall experience left me feeling unwelcome.

Birthday celebration so festive atmosphere was nice. They did a good job of COVID protocols and food and service as expected. I felt the menu options were a little limited for 11AM brunch hour. I had hoped for breakfast options they had in past but all that was available was salads and sandwiches.

Great atmosphere and vibe with candle lit walls, fireplace, intimate with indoor and outdoor options for seating. The wine flights are fun and the food is super delicious. Tim friends from out of town, they loved it. Upstairs seating is a bit hot though...

I always enjoy Purple. I ordered from the restaurant week menu and my steelhead trout with cannelloni beans was very good. My friend had the crab cakes and she said they were excellent. The caramels are great too! Staff was attentive and it was a nice meal.

We had the restaurant week 3 course menu. It was a great value! Service was uneven and rushed. We were not even seated for an hour and our dessert arrived when we were still eating dinner. Remember to have not only your vaccination card but also a photo ID or signed credit card. The open table app only mentions the vax card and not the photo ID.

For some (stupid) reason (even though we asked), they would not close the large doors so although we were inside, we were cold and had to eat with out jackets on. It really ruined the experience.

We were initially seated in a separate room with another table that were celebrating something. They were really loud and not sure why they seated the 2 of us back there. We requested another table and seated in the dining room area. It was better but the ‘garage’ door was opened and I was really cold. (No heaters) I’m not sure why we were not seated by a window since there were plenty of table available. My French dip was not hot, more like luke warm/cold, but at this point we just wanted to eat and leave. I have had better experience there with friends, so I hope next time it will be better.

I felt very safe as they required Covid vaccination proof plus ID in order to eat indoors. The service was good. I have some dietary issues, which makes it more complicated to find something on the menu that will agree with me. I was able to order a salad which was delicious! I brought my own dressing. It would be much easier for people like me that have medical issues to have some items that they list on the menu that are not seasoned, as I cannot tolerate spices of any kind. They did not have that option, so that was disappointing. Other than that, it was a good experience. Everyone else in my group enjoyed their meals as well.

Went for restaurant week. Had the Brussels sprouts, steelhead and vegan chocolate mouse.
Steelhead lacked salt and flavor, Brussels sprouts were delicious, vegan choc mouse, just ok.
Slow service but understand because of staffing issues. Good portion sizes. Wish I would have done the main menu

Following our drink and appetizer order, we were left alone for 45 minutes, eventually having to flag our server down to actually order dinner. Dinner arrived in a timely manner, but the fish and chips was overcooked and chewy, and the scallop meal was also disappointing. The squash etc, was an overcooked mess that did not mesh at all flavor wise with the perfectly cooked, and delicious scallops.

Overall, I'd go back again and give them a second chance, but I'd also be cautious about recommending Purple to anyone. When you pay for quality, you expect it.

We were prepared with proof of vaccination but also had to show ID. Two large areas were open to outside to maintain air circulation. Seated near the fireplace the temperature was comfortable. We ordered the Tuesday pasta special and enjoyed the food and wine. Having a screw-top on the bottle made it easy to take the extra wine home. The dessert caramels were hard. And a little hard to eat without harming our teeth. I took two of them home and was surprised the next day to discover they were not hard - just soft and creamy and delicious. At the restaurant they must have been in a freezer or refrigerator.

Food was okay. Truffle Mac and cheese had way to much truffle flavoring and was definitely not worth what they charge for it.
