At Shirlee, guests can expect a renewed focus on French bistro and wine bar fare. In addition to sourcing toward all things local, seasonal, and sustainable, anticipate a French and Pacific NW focused wine list, a special spotlight on vermouth, and a unique beer selection. Our menu is focused on cheese, charcuterie, and small plates inspired by France. In the immortal words of our namesake, "I am ready for wine." Until we meet at the table, be well and stay well.

    Their Outdoor space was fully enclosed, making me very nervous. They need to open up one side to increase the airflow and make it safer.

    Bistro Shirlee has adapted extremely well to the challenges of COVID, from making a pared-down menu even better than the original - we had the French Onion soup (1 each) and shared the mushroom crepe and radicchio salad. We finished it all off with the creme brulee - all was excellent. As usual the cocktail and wine selections are refined and very good. The Calvados Old Fashioned was delicious. The outdoor seating was comfortable on a chilly night due to heaters and breeze-mitigating panels so that we were quite comfortable from a temp and safety perspective. The wait staff was attentive and thoughtful. The information given to guide and inform us on mask protocal was the best we've heard - thoughtful and considerate. We'll be back soon!

    Covid safe, great outdoor ambiance. Service was attentive and quick. Chicken liver pate and pickles were a standout, but rest of the food wasn't quite worth the price. Wine and cocktails were great, so I'd recommend as a safe place to meet up for drinks and appetizers.

    They have a nice back deck and the cocktails are delicious. The menu was very limited. It felt like everything was an appetizer and no main dishes. Perhaps due to COVID but I will likely wait to return until they have entree items back on the menu.

    The food had a strong French influence but the chef felt free to indulge in other styles of seasonings and types of palate nuances. All the food, salad, bread, entry, dessert was of very high quality, not just one outstanding dish.

    Brunch & dinner at Bistro Shirlee is one of our faves! Great food (one the Fried Oyster Tartine, Bread Pudding French Toast and Eggs Benedict were all to die for!) and great service! Loved everything & cant wait to go back.
