Purple Cafe and Wine Bar pairs a global wine selection with a menu that combines classic American styles with seasonal Northwest ingredients. We feature an expansive menu ranging from artisan cheeses, starters, soups, salads, sandwiches and pizzas to pasta and seafood. We take a great deal of pride in utilizing the freshest, local ingredients that change with the seasons. On the wine side of things our wine list features over 80 glass and 600 bottle selections. Over the years our wine program has been recognized with various accolades that include an "Award of Ultimate Distinction" from Wine Enthusiast Magazine and being named "Best Wine Bar" by Evening Magazine's Best of Western Washington Viewers Poll.

Great lunch or dinner stop in Kirkland

Always a fun place to dine with a group or for date night. The wine selection is very good and the specials never disappoint! Go soon before they close for the remodel, it will be a sad day when they are gone!

Purple will close after New Year's Eve. We will have to enjoy their good lunch and dinner Items at the Bellevue or Woodinville locations. I enjoyed the chicken salad that does not Include lettuce! Delicious chicken, celery and apples make up a delicious salad. I Look forward to trying the other locations for Purple treats!

The waiters have always been very knowledgeable on the proper pairings for our food order, and in our case, they have never been wrong. The food is always well prepared, and... More

A friend and I were planning to meet for lunch at Lucia's at the Kirkland Parkplace Plaza. Neither one of go to Kirkland much so we thought it'd be a treat. Little did either of us know that they're planning on tearing down everything. So that left us with the choice of either Rikki Rikki or the Purple. My friend... More

My daughter and I were here for early Sun dinner. Service was great but that is where "great" ends. Prices way too high, even on kids menu for what food was delivered. Very disappointed spending $70 for dinner for 2......

We've come here on several occasions - romantic dinners, double date nights, girls nights! The food is great, as is the suggested wine complements for each entree. They also have gluten-free options, which is a plus! With that on the menu, the lobster mac and cheese is so great! We've had the ahi tuna appetizer which is really fresh and... More

Excellent selection, especailly nice "by the glass" selection correctly stored and served. Very friendly staff, food was excellent. One of our new favorite places in Seattle and very close to downtown hotels like the W. Highly recommended.
