My dining companion had the seasonal ravioli with spring peas; quite delicious. I had the hamburger-oh my! It would be good to share as it was quite delicious and served with sweet potato fries. Expensive.

Been to this place lots of times. Love the food and wine selection. I enjoy sitting at the bar especially. Plus with Lot 3 there is always a good cocktail nearby.

This is a very expensive restaurant, so we set the bar high, and it missed the mark on all reasons one would go to a restaurant. The music is super loud, and even after asking our waiters to lower it, it did not happen. We...More

First time at any Purple Cafe and we enjoyed it. We just made happy hour on a Saturday and enjoyed a bourbon manhattan (good), a glass of wine (they give samples if you need help deciding) and calamari. The calamari was good, not greasy and...More
