Our meal was delicious, creatively thought out and well presented. My faves were the frisée blue cheese salad and the pasta dish. I liked the ambience, sophisticated casual. A delicious meal, we would return.

Of the food ordered, portions were tiny and chicken was overly salty. This was our third visit and I think this will be the last. Value for money just isn't there. Could have spent the same for comparable dishes elsewhere and they would have been more substantial even at aerlume or the whale wins.

It feels like you're in Europe at Single Shot. Elegant, old, but also casual. No one is in a rush. The food was very very good and the wine list is great. The ambiance is lovely.

We have been regulars at Single Shot since they opened. On this occasion, we were introducing my brother-in-law visiting from Los Angeles to Single Shot so he could appreciate why we spoke so highly of it...and he was not disappointed. Everything was exceptional. We highly recommend Single Shot to anyone wanting a great gastronomical experience.

We sat at the bar and had a fun evening of chatting just the two of us and conversing with the bar tender, owner, and wait staff. Food was delicious as were the cocktails and wine the bartender recommended. Awesome menu, great wine / cocktail list, cozy but lively environment, and great people. Add this to your list of go-to places.

It wasn't terribly loud, but it was loud for me since I have difficulty speaking even in semi-loud places. I loved the space and the feeling. The food was really good and I appreciated the drink menu and digestif options.

Small plates, large plates. My wife and I enjoyed two small plates — heirloom tomatoes with burrata and caramelized cauliflower with whipped chèvre — and a large plate — bowl of risotto with sautéed chanterelles. All were prepared with a fine touch. It’s a small cafe-like restaurant and we dined early. Reservations may be in order for anything past 7 pm. A very good evening.

Food was excellent. My two friends and I ordered a bunch of small plates, shared a main and ordered dessert, all delicious. I love how the menu changes with the season but the quality stays consistently high. I moved out of Seattle a year ago but it’s still my go-to place when I come through town.

Single shot was a great setting for our small birthday celebration and for my wife’s return from a long trip overseas. Comfortable and familiar surroundings and excellent conscientious service with unique and tasty dishes.

What a lovely spot! We had dinner here last Saturday night. There was only bar seating available which turned out to be so nice! Who wouldn’t enjoy sitting at a beautiful white marble bar with lots of fresh cut flowers all around, chatting with the bartender who is not only personable, but makes absolutely delicious and unusual cocktails!
We ordered a few small plates which turned out to be not so small! Plus one large plate, the pork chop most of which we had to take home we were so full. We had grilled avocado with Dungeness crab, caramelized cauliflower with goat cheese, and the burratta. They also have a great selection of wines. Can’t wait to go back , next time will save room for dessert!

Singleshot has become our favorite neighborhood restaurant for nights where we treat ourselves to quality. From their cocktails and wines, to seasonal fresh menu - our high expectations are always met or exceeded.

The ambiance is just Seattle cool. All the staff are attentive and happy to provide you the right amount of attention. The manager Ruidhri is one of the nicest guys you could meet. The whole experience at Single Shot is a pleasant way to spend time in Seattle.

After a 1 hour and 15 minutes at Single Shot we were only served bread, butter, and cheese (we paid for bread and butter) with our wine, while we watched the ribs and salmon we ordered be delivered to 2 other other tables who sat down 15 and 30 minutes after us. When we brought this to the attention of our server in a very nice way, she complained that we were served bread, butter and cheese, so could wait. We then decided we would like the check and she said, "I have it covered. Feel free to leave". This was our 4 year wedding anniversary which was notated on Open Table reservation request. I have never been asked to leave a restaurant without paying the bill which was very offensive. I would only return to Single Shot if this server is no longer part of the food service team.

First they were overbooked. We waited at the bar. Then in 45 min we got our salad. We complained and asked the rest of the food to arrive faster. Our bread order that we had asked when we sat down came in a hour after we sat. Instead of bringing what we asked they decided to give us additional appetizer that we didn’t order, which delayed us getting what we ordered. In 1:45 hours we got the last appetizers. Main course was risotto, probably worst risotto ever, more like rice soup. Will not go back.

Fantastic food and great service. Loved that the wine list had numerous Old World selections as well as local wines. True care with the vegetable plates that made each an exceptional experience. The entree that we shared after eating 4 small plates was fabulous We had a wonderful time.

The food was perfection. The flavor, texture, freshness and visual appeal was excellent. I have eaten in a lot of great places, but this was right up there. The service and casual yet respectful style added to the experience. The price was a little high, but justified by excellence.
