"Happenin" place in the town of Woodinville, Washington

I had ahi poki as a starter and seafood pappardelle for my entree. It was "loaded" with seafood and a very good size portion. I would highly recommend... read more

Went for lunch on a Sunday. Cool Atmosphere. Service was great (thanks Lissa!). Party of 4 and all of us were impressed. Lobster roll is delicious! The caramels soooo good. Tomato soup best I've ever had

My business travels brought me to Woodinville many years ago and I can't begin to say how grateful I've been for THAT assignment! One of the most memorable and an 'always' when I get back is "Purple." The atmosphere, ambiance, service...all superb. I've enjoyed everything that I've ever eaten there, but probably my favorite mid-day treat is to order a... More

Yes, they serve beef too. But I really was happy to see how many vegetarian and pescatarian choices they had. I LOVED the dunginess crab pasta, with just the right amount of vegetation (Kale?) mixed in. And the bruschetta appetizers, with sundried tomato, was incredible. I ate at the Barking Frog next door the night before, and this place was... More

I work at Chateau Ste Michelle and frequently come here after work. Good food, good service, friendly ambiance! This is a great place whether you come often or are just looking for a delightful place to eat. Excellent wine menu and a food menu featuring salads, pasta, and pizza.

This is a great restaurant. You pay for what you get but if you're looking for a nice lunch while wine tasting, I'd recommend it. I've been there with big parties also and they seem to handle that well. If you can get a table outside, do it, because the inside is a bit dark and it's in one of... More

Amazing evening- Purple is always vibrant and super busy, however the service is excellent. You do need to plan ahead and make a reservation. Also if you are planning to do some wine tasting ahead of time and plan to buy some wine, keep in mind that Purple does not charge you a corcage fee for the first bottle of... More

Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Split the Fried chicken Wednesday special with wife and it was more than both of us could finish. Chicken was outstanding some of the best I have had. The sides paired wonderfully and were already split for us, which was a nice bonus. Our waiter was also spot on with wine selections as... More

In spite of its location in the very touristy heart of Woodinville's Wine Country (it wasn't that way when the restaurant first opened up and was next door to a BBQ joint) Purple Café and Wine Bar has done an excellent job of maintaining a high caliber level of product and service over the years. This is an especially nice... More

Paul, our server made a great meal even better. Love this place, the duck was great, the lobster mac and cheese was great, basically everything was terrific. While not as pretentious as Barking Frog, frankly I think the food is much better.
