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.

For a romantic night or a girls night, this is the place!

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... read 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.

Purple is casual while being a quality restaurant. It has great sandwiches to full entrees served in a stylish and friendly environment. The wine selection is excellent as well as the balance of the bar.

My husband and I celebrated our 50th Anniversary for lunch and a glass of Cava. We always enjoy the open concept and wine selection. We chose the Farmer's lunch of 2 types of cheeses, meats and either roasted tomato soup or salad. Both were excellent! We were lucky to have a beautiful, sunny day and a nice warm breeze cooled...

I love this place. It is pricey so we just go on a date night or to celebrate something. I like that they let you sample the wines too. They have cheeses that I've never heard of. My husband is not a big cheese lover, but he even likes the cheese samplings here. There is a movie theater near by... More

We enjoyed our experience at this trendy cafe and wine bar. The food, wine selection and service were quite good. Oh...and the sea salt caramels are worth every calorie!

Food was over rated and really not that good, cold and high priced. Service sucked even though it wasn't that busy. The staff was more interested in talking to each other. I say skip it and walk across the way to Lucia for great food and service.

great wines paired with really good salad offerings as well as many other choices. The chicken salad is real chicken with cranberries and lots of celery. Love it. Sunday is 1/2 price wine night so a great deal for a bottle. We had a lovely bottle of bubbly for $15. Ridiculous. Fun atmosphere.

The salads at Purple are great, full of ingredients. The 1/2 sandwich and salad or soup Special is delicious, too. I have also had the Brie appetizer which is served with apricot Preserves. It is very good, as well. On sunny days there is outdoor service.
