What Insiders Are Saying
For a perfect date night, go in on some American small plates at Single Shot in Capitol Hill.
Chicory salad and cassoulet on a snowy night! Bourbon ice cream affrogado was a perfect dessert.
We came for a girls' birthday lunch and while the food was delicious, the bloody marys divine and the speed of service good, our waiter was very overt about trying to rush us out - I hate that. We had only been there a little over an hour at that point. There was no line of folks waiting, there was the first of several empty tables to come on one side of us (within 15 minutes, half the restaurant had left), so I know it wasn't because they had customers waiting. First, the music volume and tempo went up so we had to raise our voices to chat, but worse - I was still eating my eggs benedict when not only did our waiter put the bill on the table, but he grabbed my little bowl of ketchup (which I was still using for my potatoes) and started to walk off with it. I grabbed it back - "still using that." He hadn't asked if we wanted any coffee or any dessert, and not waiting until all of us were finished and the plates were cleared? As a former waitress from days gone by, that is my number one peeve in poor table service. It was odd, because he'd been mostly pleasant and efficient up until then - but to put the bill down in front of us at that point was super rude. We found out later, they were prepping for their postponed staff holiday party (the owner of the restaurant, whom we met as we were leaving, was lovely), but that's no excuse for our waiter to blatantly rush us out at 1:45. By the way, we settled in and made him take the bill back, ordered some wine, dessert, and my friend opened her birthday gifts. We took our time with no apologies and we weren't even the last to leave. I'd still recommend Single Shot, but just know it's kind of small (which is nice), but you might not get to linger.
Great place; friendly staff; nice ambiance; limited menu.
A great neighborhood spot for a delicious dinner. Great menu, great cocktails, great service!
Outstanding brunch and dinner menu with excellent Sevice.
Delicious food, great wine list, great service, beautiful small space. A little on the pricey side for portions and quality though - over $30 for just 2 scallops as an entree was a bit disappointing, even though they were perfectly cooked.
It's also incredibly loud for such a tiny place. I could only hear folks immediately adjacent to me, but felt like I had to almost shout to be heard by anyone down the table. I think this place would be great for an intimate date or small groups, but not so much for groups over 4.
I would recommend this place and return for a date night.
The food menu is certainly interesting. They've split it in to 3 sections with a few options in each. I dined with a friend and, as we have similar tastes, we often order a dish each and share. The cauliflower and chicory salad were both excellent. The mushroom flat bread was good but not mindblowing (a bit burnt around the edges for me). The entrees were where (I thought) the execution could've been improved.
Great service and menu. Custom cocktails were a bonus treat!
Great food and wonderful service! Love having quality neighborhood eateries like this one...builds the neighborhood!
My newest trip to Single Shot did not disappoint. The service was, as usual, impeccable. The food was perfect from my spot prawn cocktail (a jazzed-up version of the standard) to the moist and flavorful pork chop. The wines by the glass that my server selected for me made a beautiful pairing. I can't wait to go back.
Wonderful neighborhood place and great food.
Awesome place. The drinks and the apps were amazing (get the soup).
Been to this place many times for their awesome cocktails and dinner, but brunch is a whole new level. Staff, especially Rory, are always amazing and make you feel like you are part of the family. I avoid the carbs, but two folks in my party had the pancake which made me salivate. My hash was incredibly flavorful, but I do recommend adding a side dish as portion on that was a little small. Omelets are fluffy and filling. Definitely enjoy a brunch cocktail -you won't be disappointed.
Wonderful place to eat. Great brunch.
Love the pre-fixe menu they did for NYE. Every dish was better than the last and the service was amazing- even with a full house. An outstanding example of the talent at this place!
We made the reservation last minute and were shocked how awesome this place is. It looked really cute in photos and the food sounded good, but we were floored at how Single Shot totally delivered. From the moment we walked in we were warmly greeted by a friendly person that sat us right away. The restaurant itself is so so well designed and we loved our table. Service was perfectly timed, food was wonderful, and we just had the best time! GO HERE. YOU WILL LOVE IT.
My favorite restaurant in all of Seattle
A sweet neighborhood spot where owner remembers you from a year previous! Food is excellent and service so awesome. Love the bar seating. Excellent beverages! I am looking forward to trying brunch next.
Vibrant neighborhood restaurant with a great staff. Owner very considerate if your party morphs into a larger group. Large selection of top shelf liquor.
Brunch is delicious too. Try the Bloody Mary!
Great variety of dishes and solid staff. First time here and I’ll be back!
Always fabulous...never disappoints!!
This place is dope. Rory is the man and this is easily my favorite spot in Seattle. Amazing food, wine, and cheer. Take your girl.
The ambiance is great, small and cozy restaurant, great for a date. The bartender was very attentive, we ordered two appetizers and who came a bit late and no apologies were offered. We ordered the Smoked been cassoulet which was bland and the beans were too “al dente” for a slow cooked dish. I really wanted to like this place since it was highly recommended by my coworkers, however it was a disappointment.
Great brunch menu especially the huckleberry pancake. Service is great with attentive returns to the table to make sure we were having a good time.
We love Single Shot because the food is consistently good, the drinks are great, the ambiance is perfect (nicely lit and not too loud) and the service is always wonderful!
Always a great experience with delicious food and good service.
Always a great experience.
Super nice staff, always take such good care of me and my friends. The atmosphere is great and the food is delicious.
Our favorite date night go to. Parking sucks, will we ever learn to just Uber? But always worth it. Lovely cocktails, super food. Then go have a night cap at Sun Liquor.
We thought the food was fine but nothing to ooh and ah over and it was very expensive. We had 3 appetizers (cauliflower, halloumi, chicory salad), 1 main (black cod) 3 glasses of wine and 1 dessert and came to $150. Our favorite dish was the halloumi. Actually both of us had been there before but hadn’t remembered until we walked in which speaks for itself. The service was excellent. We won’t be going back.
I have enjoyed it in the past but this time, the food wasn’t great and came lukewarm.
Great food and ambience. Small menu of creative dishes. Friendly staff.
Rory and team are always top notch!
Although we live in the neighborhood this was our first time. Ambiance was great, service was friendly and prompt and food was delicious. We’ll definitely be back
We celebrated my birthday at Single Shot. It was our 2nd experience with this restaurant. We had a large party and the service was excellent. The food has been excellent both visits. The specialty cocktails are great. Love this place!
We enjoyed a wonderful tasting menu experience!
Would eagerly go again!
We went a couple nights ago and had an amazing time. Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Highly recommend and we’ll definitely be returning.
By far my favorite restaurant in Seattle. Service is excellent always and the food matches out of any in the area. The ambience is perfect as well.
Our regular place for date night. Exceptional food and staff.
We arrived at opening and were immediately seated by the window. They had beautiful long stemmed roses, and the visual of the restaurant was cute and comfortable. The servers were very friendly, and you could tell they enjoyed being there. The bartender had flair when shaking cocktails. The brunch food was DELICIOUS! We opted for the grapefruit mimosas with fresh squeezed juice. The Eggs Benedict were savory, and the breakfast sandwich delicious. Perfect portions and flavors. The timing was excellent, and we were checked on often. The place filled up quickly!
Can't wait to try this place for dinner and other events!
