Best Place in Kirkland

Great service. The food is always amazing! It can be a little pricey, but definitely worth it.

Downtown restaurant has great tasting menu

My favorite part of dining at Purple is the tasting menu with the matching flights of wine. I visited recently with two friends, and together we tried 20+ dishes and nearly as many glasses of wine. No need to ever order a main course!

Worst Customer Service

I ate at Purple last weekend and had the worst customer service from the manager. They were out of two of the wines I ordered and didn't even offer me a third wine at a similar price. In fact they tried to sell me a terrible bottle at double the price. The manager was rude and the food was awful. All the food was cold and tasteless.

Really not fine dining

The restaurant food is really okay. Thumbs down. The wine selection is fine. I have to write alteast 100 characters to write. I dont have much to say

good food and wine

I've been three times now and enjoyed it. I've always been happy with the wine. The lobster mac and cheese was OK. The bacon wrapped scallop appetizer was nice. I really enjoyed the Sesame Crusted Ahi although the rice cake that came with it was only OK. Service was great and the waiter didn't mock my choice of wine with a meal it didn't ""go"" with. The restaurant is VERY crowded. It had the vibe of a place people went to see and be seen. Last time my husband and I went a little before the rush and we had a lovely meal.

Great experience at Purple!

My best friend and I went to Purple for the first time last night -- we had a great time. They were able to seat us promptly, great service, and the food was delicious! The atmosphere was great and the decor was nice too. We will definitely visit again!

Just Two Words: Crab Cakes!

My mother and I are convinced Purple has the best crab cakes in the Seattle area, and we've tried almost all of them! We also love the salads--all are delicious and most pair well with the crab cakes. We aren't wine drinkers, but dine at Purple frequently. Another friend and I had a daily dinner seafood special, which was a white fish encrusted with macadamia nuts, with a beurre blanc sauce. We both thought we'd died and gone to heaven! I tried the beef tenderloin once, and was not happy with size or toughness, but everything else has been good. Service is usually good, but sometimes takes a while to get the check.

Purple is a wonderful place to bring friends from out of town. The atmosphere is dreamy and the dark lighting is so special. The food is devine.

wine list is worth it

i have been to purple in seattle and kirkland. i prefer the one in seattle, which is trendier. overall, i think their industrial interior will quickly become passe and tired looking. regardless, i was not disappointed this go'round, service was a bit lacking at first. it took a while for someone to take responsibility for our table. once they did, service was seamless. we ordered the prix fixe with the wines for $40 and it was well worth the money. the wines didn't knock my socks off - and i know they could have because i have seen the list - but the food was fantastic. the goat cheese swimming in honey was a bit odd, but i finished every bit. the best part was the prawn and scallop skewers - gorgeous! four huge prawns and four huge scallops - i felt positively spoiled. there was a funky ""chick pea cake"" and some swiss chard, which was brown but tasty. my peanut dessert was mediocre, but the vanilla creme brulee was great. overall, this spot is not a waste of time or money no matter which location you choose.

Looks are deceiving

This place only looks fantastic. Great lighting, cool bar and wine storage.... but don't be deceived. I went here after work with a friend and we were so disappointed. It took 15 minutes to get our drinks and we sat at the bar! Waitress never came and asked us if we wanted another, we had to flag her down. It was very crowded and very loud. To top off the evening we had to send our bill back twice because they kept charging us for things we never ordered. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!!
