“Always Enjoyable”

I've been to Purple Cafe & Wine Bar several times. The house wine is always excellent. The service always friendly and efficient. I'm sure I'll go back again next time I'm in the area.

“Surrounded by good friends and wine shelves, Purple restaurant in Kirkland is an oasis in the suburbs.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

The food was just right, beautiful, tasty and true. The PORTIONS were right, not too much, but not skimpy. I liked the Brie in the pastry. Great pork cheeks. We four all thought our meals were excellent. Good lighting. The service was perfect - Louis even went back and asked what the Italian word for champagne was, when we couldn't think of it. He also scraped the pastry crumbs from the tablecloth - now that's nice!

Perfect location for a romantic dinner or a lady-like night out with your girlfriends. Intimate, yet not quiet.
