    Food was great except for salad having very little dressing Dessert was a little on the cold side Front desk gal was so accommodating when I just got seated when I requested to be moved away from the loud table behind me, however her coworker was reluctant without checking the seating map Finally…our server was very polite, courteous and helpful but we didn’t think it was appropriate to mention the gratuity in any way

    I liked the restaurant but it was so dark I had to use the light on my phone to read the menu. Even though I was on a date and the food was good, I was taken back by the price of the items on the menu. If I didn't have a gift card for $50 I probably wouldn't have gone there for dinner. Parking was a nightmare. The strip mall parking lot was so full cars that some were parking in the fire lane. I had to park a few blocks away and even then I got a warning for parking in the wrong location. They need to improve that before I go back there.

    We've been coming to Purple Cafe ever since they opened .. both at Woodinville and in Seattle. Food and service have always been excellent. Always on my recommended list. On the -ve side: Hard surfaces at both places make conversation a challenge. Parking at Woodinville can be problematic due to the expanded number of adjacent cafes and wine tasting rooms. This is something the City planning department needs to seriously consider as the area expands.

    Seemed odd to have the Seattle week menu online and a paper menu at the table for the normal menu. The meat loaf seemed more like a meat sausage, round slices that had the skin removed. Particularly noticeable in the end sausage piece I was given

    Went for restaurant week. Their menu choice was too expensive ($65) so we ordered ala carte. Meal and service was good. Several of their menu items have gotten too expensive so it limits our choices. Will return to order specific items but would not go back to just see what looks good.

    Food was okay but did not live up to the hype I had heard, was expecting better to be honest. My steak was cooked well but under seasoned and everything else on the plate (potatoes & vegetable stew basically) did not belong. Had mentioned we were celebrating a birthday upon reservation but no mention of it before, during or after the meal. I may return to try something else on the menu and see if it’s this was a fluke experience.

    Longtime customer, and disappointed in what we experienced. Came in for our reservation and waited at the check in stand 5 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. Given staffing issues over the past two years, this is always understandable, except that in this case, we saw at least three employees standing around doing nothing or chatting. This includes the person who eventually came and seated us. As an observation, I noticed this happening the entire extent of our stay. Odd. We have all been through a lot in the past few years. I have always been patient and even overtipped what little staff have been available as a rule. This visit really made no sense other than maybe poor training, management, or both. Not sure we will be back. Purple downtown and Woodinville have been my family's go to Birthday spot. Hoping downtown has fared better.

    We have eaten here before and found it to be very good. Last night was disappointing. The calamari was chewy and the salad just ok. Wine menu used to have more choices. It was expensive and this time around not worth it.

    We were the first table seated when they opened. It took 30 minutes from being seated to get a glass of wine. The food used to be amazing but is not the same. We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 entrees'. We wouldn't order any of them again. So disappointing. Purple used to be a favorite, sadly I don't know if we'll return.

    For what Purple is trying to create I was disappointed. The service covered the basics. But it was lack luster at best. Coming up to the table and asking if we were ready (to order everything). I was hoping to start with a glass of wine, appetizers (which we did order) and enjoy my time with my friends. It felt more like a middle of the road Mexican joint (and that's not to comment on his ethnicity, that doesn't matter to me). We weren't finished with our appetizers and our food came. Our table was overloaded with plates. I wanted a second glass of wine...he never came back to ask. I think we may have seen him one more time before we finished. It was not good service. At the end he brought the check...which actually turned out a piece of paper from the bar (someone's drink ticket). When he brought the actual bill, he sat over my shoulder as I contemplated the tip. I gave 20% as the hand held machine pre-chooses 20% as the suggested tip. It was awkward. The entire experience was average at best. Don't know if I'll be back for a while. There's a lot of restaurants to choose from.

    The food was great. We had the baked Brie , cod and chips, the burger and Chicken Marsala. Everything went fine although we felt a bit rushed. They whisked away our appetizer as we were still finishing it and replaced it with our meals. The parking here is horrible also, had to circle the lot many times because there were no spots left.

    Excellent food for Brunch especially with a bottle of French Rose. As appetizer we had the baked Brie to be shared. Purple is well known for this delicious dish for many years. The eggs Benedict as well as the Croque Madame were perfect cooked and delice. The menu is a very poor presentation just a cheap foto copy. This not a good presentation of a fine establishment. We had a most enjoyable time and will be back soon🎀 Hans Brinkhoff

    I would not get the bologna. NO taste whatsoever ever. On the other hand the beans with the bacon wrapped meatloaf were awesome. Anniversary dinner and besides the waiter saying Happy Anniversary nothing else happened. Waiter was good and getting to try wines before buying a bottle was helpful, but not alot of Washington wines on the menu.

    Service was slow. I had a gift card to use and tried to reach someone at the Cafe to ask questions about the use of the gift card there, and never was able to get any human being. I realize that the automated responses work fine a large percentage of time, but sometimes you need answers that don't match the pre-programed stuff. Make the effort, people, to be accessible. I have been there several times over the years, but no more.

    The service was great, so was food, but seating was horrible, I made reservation ahead of time, was expecting better seating, especially that it was my mom's birthday. I was asked multiple times who's birthday we were celebrating, but didn't get any cake or at least acknowledgment of that. It was totally different few years ago when we celebrated my friend's birthday. Disappointed, not coming back again, the noise level was absolutely horrible

    Unfortunately Purple is not was it used to be a few years ago. As a longtime patron of all of the Purple locations, it’s disappointing to see. The service was slow. Like 15 minutes for someone to come take our drink/food order. And another 35 minutes for our entrees to arrive. The bacon wrapped meatloaf lacked the sauce it used to have leaving the crispy potatoes kind of blah. It used to come with the best mashed potatoes, sigh. Overall a lack of seasoning. Dinner for two took a full two hours, which is the limit they say. But could have been expedited if the service was better. Can’t say I’ll be returning anytime soon. Back to Pablo Y Pablo I go.

    Service was not good. Initially we waited almost 20 minutes for water and then still we’re not approached by a server when he dropped the water on the table. We had to approach the hostess stand and ask about A server being assigned to our table. turns out it was the guy who brought us the water.We had the bartender as our server and he was distracted and not hopeful. The halibut dinner was mediocre. The halibut itself was tasty but the dish is not really compatible with the halibut and the gnocchi had zero flavor. Chicken marsala was very much not traditional and the sauce was very sweet. This has been my favorite restaurant for years and I brought out of town gas. It was disappointing for them and me.
