Purple in Bellevue not only has delicious food, but the interior with custom designed steel walls makes for a very cool ambiance. Three of us went for lunch, ordered a bunch of appetizers and shared. Everything was DELISH! Definitely order the salted caramels!

Don't come here. It's not worth it. service was slow and food was average. I ended up having to go the kitchen to find out where our food was. Only thing we ordered was appetizer and salads. Manager came over and apologized. Read the Yelp reviews. Lots of 1 ratings for slow service

We went to Purple to celebrate a birthday. Had the starter kale salad, squash pasta, chop chop salad with steak, crème brule, and no flour hazelnut chocolate cake --all exquisitely made and presented and delicious. Tried a wine flight which is always fun. The food and service were excellent which just added to a very fun evening!

The food was superb and the service great. When you're in a group of 14 people it's always a challenge for the staff and they did a wonderful job. The sommelier was able to pick perfect local wines (out of a huge selection) to match our food. When looking for fine dining this is the place to be.

Purple and Lot # 3 are next to each other, and offer great food, drinks and wine. A favorite each time we visit Seattle.

My wife and I attended a conference in Bellevue which was over at 4 pm. It was rainy and we did not want to go back to our hotel and wait for dinner. We stopped at Purple for happy hour and it was great. Excellent food, wine and beer. The staff was great. Heather was outstanding. Enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

We stayed in Bellevue one night and didn't know any restaurants around, so we asked the front desk staff at the hotel and they recommended Purple Café and Wine Bar. I'm so glad that they did, because my husband and I had a good time here. It was our first weekend as empty nesters and the setting was just perfect.... More

My wife and I had never eaten at Purple before and were looking forward to a pleasant café dining experience but nothing special. We were treated to a wonderful dining experience that far exceeded our expectations. Initially we were a little skeptical as we entered through the huge entry doors and were led into what seemed a noisy industrial themed... More

We've eaten there several times and have always had great service and great food. The setting can be a bit noisy and the decor is interesting. Lot 3, their sister restaurant, adjoins Purple and you can order off of either menu. The wild boar pasta and chicken marsala are a couple of my wife's favorites. The baked brie and gorgonzola...

Food was good. They have a nice variety on their menu. We found the place way too noisy as we could not converse. Wish they had quieter spots.
