Great food! Good service! A bit crowded and to loud you feel like you have to talk loud at your table so those dining with you can hear you! Other than that was good! Wouldn't come there for a romantic dinner! Not sure you can really change all of that because the restaurant is small! Unless you move.

Slow service, waited more than 15 mins to be waited on and another 15-20 for food. Food good. Waitress not particularly friendly or attentive.
A go to for restaurants or us
I recently took a friend of. I E to Purple Cafe' Woodinville, to celebrate her birthday. My husband and I frequent Purple Cafe at various locations, and are never disappointed.
I enjoyed my meal
My group arrived ahead of me and already unsure about our server when I got there. One of our party cut his hand on the sharp table edge too. This had me tuned in to my parties mood going forward. In keeping with their observations, the waiter did not think to address the group at each visit, rather, took singular refill orders while others were overlooked. I liked food, the room was attractive, if quite noisy, and I'll try again...we all have off days
Great food and wine!
The food here is very very good. Our server was fantastic the wine selection is amazing!
Very pleasant experience
We had a very pleasant experience and early dinner on our way to a concert at St Michelle Winery.

We have dined at this Purple frequently over the last 10 years and will continue to do so. We enjoy the food, wine, atmosphere, and staff.
Still very good
We had a very nice outdoor lunch at Purple. The food and service were both very good. It is really nice to be able to have wine flights of both still and sparkling wines. Look forward to going there again.

I had such a great time here! We had four kids with us. The place was very lively. We were here for two hours. My kids have never spent two hours while we enjoyed a nice, leisurely meal and drinks. The atmosphere is so nice and comfortable. The food was very tasty. Our service was good and great with our kids.

We've been to Purple many times, and sadly this meal was uninspired. We were surprised as usually it is quite good.
Do something about your beef.
Was celebrating a birthday here with out of town guests, made sure it was noted with the hostess over the phone beforehand. They had forgotten, sigh. Waiter was pleasant, ambiance was great, and food was mediocre. The best part of the entire evening was the dessert! They had listed "kobe beef" on their menu, and it looked like a sirloin, and was horribly tough. It felt like we were eating leather. The food tasted great, just horrible texture with the beef. Please do something about this!

I would give it 6 stars if I could. The steak (fillet and New York) is delicious. Try the baked Brie and the strawberry goat cheese salad. So good!

Lunch was a great way to kick off an afternoon of wine tasting for my wife's birthday. We had a great time and the food was excellent. Service was OK, I think because it was during the mid-afternoon doldrums and most of the staff was on break or something.
Great food, great place!
We have dined here many times. We love the food and the wine. I always like the fact that we can make a reservation as the restaurant is always busy on Friday and Saturdays. Our server was very helpful and friendly. We'll be back!

Purple does a great job of accommodating food allergies. I have a large number of food allergies and I can always find something tasty that can be modified so that I can eat it. The staff has done a great job of making sure my requests get passed on.
Mother's day purple cafe brunch
Purple cafe is always one of our favorite restaurants and we decided to go for Mother's day. It continues to be one of our favorite restaurants, the food, atmosphere are always very good, although the experience isn't as satisfying as it has been in the past. The food seemed more average then we have the in the past. My wife had the lobster sandwich and the bun and filling didn't have as much taste as I would have expected. My daughter had the lobster mac and cheese and the portion seemed smaller then in the past and although my meal was quite good, I was left a little hungry. I still highly recommend the restaurant as it is better then most other restaurants in the area and the value is good for the quality, but I would tamper my expectations.
There were four in our party. We all had a different entree and every party enjoyed their choices. The cranberry chicken salad was great. My friend had the spring vegetable flatbread and the guys has the BLTA and the roasted turkey club. We will definitely come back again before an afternoon of wine tasting.
Love this place!
Good food, good wine - the perfect place to be with good friends! We particularly appreciated the waiter's humor and his knowledge of the menu - he told us he is also a bartender and we will likely come in some Monday evening just to hang out around the bar while he's working! The upstairs loft is a good choice if you want a slightly less noisy space.
Good choice for midweek business lunch
We were a group of four and had reserved a noon spot for a going away lunch for a colleague. Our food was a bit slow getting to us, but our server was attentive to our needs. Portions were decent, even for the $15 lunch combo.
Fun place with great food
We have eaten here twice, at the one in Woodinville. The dress is nice/casual. The service has been excellent both times though they were very busy. Good wine selection. Great appetizers especially the baked brie. I had the Sugo pasta one time and the clam linguine the second time. We really enjoy this place. We ate inside, but there is a nice area for eating outside that is heated if cool out. We would highly recommend.

We went for Open tables. We were fortunate the weather was perfect & ate outside so I cannot really rate the ambience or noise level. Food was very good. We want to go back for brunch.
Noisy, not energetic. Food was OK.
Pappardelle pasta was good. Lobster mac n cheese was not. The ambiance was a 0/10. Unable to converse without yelling. Had to move my chair to along side my date in order to then yell to her ear. Not energetic, loud.
Every time I come to Purple, I enjoy it a great deal. Food is great, wine is great, service is wonderful!
Mitch, our waiter, was excellent! Very attentive!
Ask for Mitch, who is a wonderful waiter at Purple in Woodinville. Terrific service and a great smile.

The only issue in what was an otherwise great experience was that it was a busy Saturday afternoon and there was no parking available. My guest has trouble walking and it was of concern.
