The food and drinks were perfect. The staff were attentive without being overboard and the outdoor seating was comfortable. Our first date during the pandemic was fantastic and needed. Very romantic!

A wonderful neighborhood hidden gem. Perfect for date night. The heirloom tomato salad is amazing and the salmon was delicious and creatively prepared.

Best meal I’ve eaten in months. Asparagus Oscar TDF. Halibut excellent. Not inexpensive, but considering excellent quality and small dining room, the prices are reasonable.

Single Shot has adapted to COVID 19 protocol very well. Comfortable seating inside as well as outdoor tables. Halibut and pasta were outstanding. Service is always professional.

Our server was great! Cute spot tucked away in Cap Hill. However, it was pretty loud for a Sunday brunch with a rowdier crowd and loud music. Food was okay. I ordered the lox but my bread was on the staler end and I found it to be pretty pricey for a smaller portion.

The place is very small, and very loud. We had a hard time hearing our server and vice versa. I felt like I could barely have a conversation with the people at my table. I did love the decor.

Food was ok. We were there for brunch, I ordered the kale salad, but the server came back to tell me they were out of kale and offered another green. I said yes, it was ok but WAY too much dressing. The servers were trying but service was very slow and hard to order.

The staff at Single Shot was kind, gracious and accommodating. They held our table for us on a busy night when we called and let them know we were running late. Our server was well-informed, and maintained a subtle presence, letting us dine without unnecessary interruption. Throughout or dining experience, each staff member we encountered was professional, and engaged. It became apparent that many diners were repeat guests & were welcomed warmly with hugs and handshakes--a true community gem. The food itself was delicious, creative, beautiful and prepared with careful attention to detail. That being said, there was a quality of cozy comfort about the food that was unexpected. The cocktail was perfectly balanced and paired beautifully with my starter. The whole experience left us satiated, yet wanting more.

The prix fixe menu for Valentine's Day was Divine. My date and I were able to sample the entire offering. Each course was skillfully prepared in progression. Every course topped the last. The service was exceptional. I am particularly grateful that the Maitre D moved us to the corner table without having to ask. This was one of the best dining experiences I've had in Seattle thus far. Well done.

Such a great find. The food was amazing...every single dish from the beet salad to the scallops to the decadent creme brûlée was perfect. It was the type of service where as soon as you think you might want or need something, someone was there, but never overbearing. Can't wait to go again!

Dinner was excellent! The space has a sleek design and minimalist aesthetic for a classic, moody vibe. The food is inventive, perfectly tasty, and beautifully plated, though portions are a bit small even for a fine dining spot. Cocktails are exquisite, with a good selection. Service was very good; however, pacing was a bit off, with things feeling a bit rushed between courses and drinks a little slow to come out.

Single Shot is our neighbor go-to place for great food and conversational atmosphere. The menu changes often and always offers great flavor combinations. The honey roasted clear salad was exceptional. Can’t go wrong with any of the pasta or pork entrees. The bar menu is extensive allowing you to try different brands in your favorite beverage.

The pancake and coffee were delicious. The grits however weren't the best (we did not send back as we assume this is how the chef intended the grits to be and it might just be personal taste.) However, when the waiter came to clear our plates he clearly saw the grits had hardly been touched and did not ask any questions he just removed the dish. I would recommend based on the ambiance, pancake, and coffee.

While I'm a food tour guide, I was genuinely just shooting for a slow, elegant dinner for my 50th birthday w/ my sweetheart...Single Shot hit the spot. I wish I could honor her by name, but our server was a magician and the food and cocktails were impeccable. I didn't bother coming w/ over-hyped expectations (though online feedback got me excited and is overwhelmingly positive) and we ended up having a lovely evening in a neighborhood bar that just felt kinda perfect. Didn't have a bad dish, but the soup and scallops were exceptional and I love to see Calvados on a menu w/ my dessert.

This restaurant reminds me of a few places in New York. I love the style, the only problem we had was I had reservations and walking in our we had to wait an additional 25 minutes until we were seated. All that being said the server cannot control that however I wish we had better communications. That being said, the food was amazing and I will be back!

The food was delicious, and the portions were decently sized. Not too large or small. We were seated early, with a reservation. The place was still decently lively.

Unfortunately, the service was somewhat slow, both in the attentiveness of the waiter (we had to ask to place our entree order and then for the check) and in how long it took for the entrees to come out (maybe 45 minutes). We noted that at one point, not a single person in the restaurant was eating their entree. But the appetizers were delicious and timely.

This is one of our 2 top favorite restaurants in Seattle. The cuisine is just perfect, they put great attention to detail and always come up with incredible flavors. The owner and the whole staff are super friendly and always ready to give their customers the best advise to make their dinner unforgettable. I absolutely recommend to try Single Shot our. We go there pretty much every other week : )
