I was at Purple this week for a business dinner. It was extremely crowded. The bar is in the middle of the restaurant, and the entire place is pretty loud. I don't know that it's the best option for business gatherings, but it's got a...More

Have been to Purple Café many times, in Woodinville, later at the Carillion Point and two nights in a row this week in Bellevue. Food is actually great, although not cheap, service is courteous, but management and customer experience were horrible on the 2nd evening....More

My husband I sat in a private area with dimmed lights. Wine selection, food and service were great. I saw the bar area and it was crowded because of Friday happy hour, but they were able to accommodate us in a more quiet space

This is a relatively small bar and I found it to be very dark and crowded. I ate with a colleague here and the tables are so small, you can hardly fit drinks, plates and food comfortably, so I didn't feel that you could sit...More

If you like wine bars, this restaurant is a good choice in Bellevue. Their serve good food also. Atmosphere is a mix of casual and elegant. You can go in jeans, or in business casual, and feel comfortable.

My wife and I took my son to Purple for his 47th birthday. Most of the clientele appeared to be in their late 20''s to mid-40's, with few "older" people (my wife and I are in our early 70's). The bar offers a variety of...More

Horribly loud, very slow service (although nice server) and mediocre food at best, but we found a nice bottle of wine. Would not recommend for date night dinner but could be OK for happy hour drinks and appetizers but probably would not risk it.

Hi John and Geri, My guess is that you are referring to the 'Half off Wine Night' that we used to have on Sunday. While that promotion has ended...we do have a daily happy hour from 3pm to 6pm that features $2 off wines by... More
