Was by myself as my wife was attending a Sales Meeting and so I decided to explore downtown Bellevue by foot. Came across this interesting corner restaurant and decided to give it a try. Good choice! HUGE selection of wine and a good menu. Sat at the bar, always entertaining, and ordered a light dinner followed by dessert.

I enjoyed a rye manhattan and something called a "shrub". The decor is somewhere between whimsical and industrial; i think you could describe it as 'steampunk'.

I have been here with friends a few times and I like it less each time I go. If you have a big party and can get a table in the wine racks its very fun. Food is okay, but not nothing outstanding that have sampled.

We had a post meeting dinner here the other night. Really cool place and they accommodated us without a reservation, but we had to leave by certain time. Prices were high, but typical of a place like this. Started with a split pea soup, unique and delicious. I then had the NY steak, it was prepared perfectly, but lacked flavor.... More

Had a delightful lunch here with attentive service. However, due to the architecture, it can be noisy in here and difficult to hear others at your table.

Nice place to unwind in a relax environment. The bar and bar snacks are great, but dinner is also served if hungry. Great ambiance.

I should preface this review. We went for dinner with a large gift card to pay for everything so money was not out of pocket, had it been we probably would not have gone. The place is nicely done, numerous alcoves that can accomodate larger parties and feel somewhat secluded. One of those very dark restaurants to make things feel... More

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!
