Purple Cafe and Wine Bar - Woodinville Ratings and Reviews

People come here for the wine and the food. It's a moderately priced eatery with an extensive wine list.
Parking on a Sunday night was a problem. We had to park a long way from the restaurant, then walk in the dark, through some buildings to get back to the restaurant. Also, the noise level was at a pitch where the three of us had difficulties carrying on a conversation.

Went here for a first date and the food was good and the decor was very pleasing. The server was helpful when it came to suggestions on food and was knowledgeable about the wine options. One downside to the restaurant was the noise level. Because of the open concept and open seating the place was rather loud and we both had to raise our voices to be heard. The only other negative was since the lights were low for ambiance...we both had a difficult time reading the menu and wine list. Overall though a nice place.

Two things: order the spicy prawns (and ask for extra sauce!!) and ask to have Autumn for your server...she is a joyful presence, and really good at her job. I've been to Purple many times, and always find the menu a little challenging....everything sounds okay, nothing sounds amazing, so choosing is hard. The lobster mac and cheese is fantastic if you don't mind eating a gigantic bowl of mac and cheese for dinner....great wine list too!!

We have been going to the Purple for years. Always good food and good service. The menu has a good variety so I think everyone can find something to enjoy. A great spot for an afternoon snack and a glass of wine during the summer with their outdoor seating.

We loved Purple Cafe in Kirkland, and now we love your Woodinville restaurant too! The food was fantastic and our waiter was handling a huge crowd, but he managed to get us our food and drinks quickly with such a friendly manner. We'll definitely be back :)

The Purple Cafe & Wine Bar is the perfect spot for that business lunch, lunch with friends or out-of-town guests. The menu selections are all excellent and everyone in your party will find
a good selection to pick from. If you are wine fans the list is excellent. You might even get a peek at a local winemaker enjoy lunch here with friends.
With a warm and comfortable setting to excellent service we always recommend the Purple Cafe when dining in Woodinville.

The food was fantastic but what really stood out was our server Briana. She was amazing, so enthusiastic, warm and knowledgeable. Also, the manager Leshon, came by the table and chatted with us. She too was wonderful. I apologize if I didn't get the spelling of the names correct.

Took my mother in law in for a post Christmas meal. Everything was delicious. We shared a bottle of Chablis which was the perfect light wine to go with our meal. We loved everything except the multiple screaming babies that were there. The meal was great the service was even better. Thank you for such a nice night.

Purple Café delivers a consistent high quality service, food and wine. My wife and I have enjoyed this restaurant for many years and plan to continue to do so. When the weather is warm we enjoy eating outside with our dog, Gabriella.

Always Wonderful Choices - baked brie best I have had anywhere. Special on Wed. was Southern Fried chicken. Comes with choice of two sides - skip the coca cola baked beans - great mac and cheese. Great wine list. Malbec from Argentina - Catena - is excellent. Service was excellent. Place is all hard services and depending on the crowd can be VERY noisy. Llunch is generally quieter.

Purple just keeps on going and yet every time I have been to one of these restaurants I am disappointed. They get points for overall ambiance, but I find that the food is below par. I had the Kobe Beef Dip sandwich this time and it was tough and oddly seasoned, served with cold jus and a salad that was drenched in dressing. The waitress got the order wrong and it arrived with fries, which were taken away (served to the next guest?) and then the bad salad came. No one was thrilled with their food, it was just the backdrop for our conversation. Nothing special.

Inexperienced server caused a 25 minute wait to receive even a glass of wine...but finally the manager became involved (at waiters request) and got our meal going. A very professional response to the goof, and turned the meal around in our eyes. The food is good, not great, but lunch options tend not to be as imaginative maybe? Setting is lovely but the hard surfaces make for a very loud dining experience. Would go back with expectations for an everyday lunch, not a great meal.

Chicken Marsala is usually amazing with a fabulous sauce and wonderful side veggies. Was dry and my last bite was burnt. The sauce was watery and the sides were ok. Without any beverage for last third of meal. When we were done, with utensils appropriately positioned and then our coats on, server was four feet away telling another table a long story. To be fair, it was busy and I didn't complain - too shocked because it's my favorite dish and service is usually amazing. The bruschetta was really good...

We've eaten at Purple for many years and it's always been great. A little noisy but food is always good - hot, tasteful and comes pretty quickly. Service is always great. Friday night was disappointing. We were there with friends who had not been there before and the food was mediocre, took forever to come, some of it was cold. It was just disappointing. Service was good initially but once our food was delivered we didn't see her again until time to clear. No checking back to see if everything was ok, etc. She was nice but not around much. $50 for two sandwiches and a glass of wine is fine if the service is great and the food is good, but really, have had much better food and service for less than half that price.

I called ahead to let them know we were vegans and they said the chef could leave items out and make vegan meals. Unfortunately the best they could come up with was pasta with marinara sauce and veggies. If you are not vegan the food is fabulous.

We have been twice and both times have been impressed at the quality of the food. Everything is excellent with quality local ingredients. This is really a treat for foodies! But be sure to leave yourself time for parking - you will likely end up in the back field parking which is not horrible but has no lighting and is awful for nice shoes.

We visit Purple downtown and Woodinville often. Wines are always good. Service this time was inattentive bordering on rude. Server was more interested in chatting up a bar patron than waiting her tables. Lobster Mac & Cheese was soupy and not up to previous visits. Definitely off their game.

The cranberry chicken salad is usually my favorite but the apples in it were kind of soft and mushy definitely not this years crop. I wouldn't order it again it was too disappointing for the price. I'll try something else the next time I go there.

Love coming to Purple after an afternoon of wine tasting. Great atmosphere (but noisey), great food and great staff. Had the brussel sprouts for the first time and I'm hooked!! Can't wait to have them again. Highly recommended making reservations.
