This was my first time to Purple. We went to dinner here before the Jeff Bridges concert at the Chateau Michelle Winery. We had 2 amazing appetizers , clams and a shrimp dish then we shared the chop chop salad and the chicken sandwich! It was all done beautifully and we all were satisfied! I can hardly wait to visit the one in downtown Seattle next week!

Just came back from dinner and decided it wasn't worth the $100 we spent. We waited about a half hour until our wine flight got served, and the entre was served immediately after that. No time to enjoy a few sips before the meal. Chicken salad was mostly apples. Chicken Marsala was dry. Was expecting a better experience for such a highly rated place.

It's busy, it's noisy, it's not very expensive for good food, and the wine list is what it's all about. It's "Purple" for a reason, they specialize in wines, especially red wines. There have been a few times that the service has been slow, but it's been due to pure workload.

I've had one 'not quite right' desert in maybe 20 trips there. Everything else is spot on, and try out the tomato soup. No kidding. Try the appetizers, too.

Portions are on the light side, but not by any means tiny.

I dinged the "atmosphere" for "loud".

Last night we visited this Café in a small roadside strip mall. They had heaters on so we could sit outside. The place was busy but our waitress was on the spot. We ordered from their cheese board and liked most of them. Also we tried a flight of 4 local white wines they offer and another one with 4 reds. Don´t know why they selected those wines. There was only a Sauvignon Blanc I could agree with. All the other ones were pretty flat wines with no distinct character. We asked the waitress and she said they leave the bottles open only for a maximum of 2 days. Strange!

Great local up and coming chain. Great for happy hour. Not great to meet clients, too loud.
