The bar is good and we enjoy
The bar is good and we enjoy going there often. They always have a nice beer selection and an interesting list of wines. I think the food still misses the mark, however. It's not bad, it's just average. If they can get this element right(er), this place would be jam packed every night.

We went to slate wine bar
We went to slate wine bar for brunch a few weeks back, it was wonderful! The doughnut holes for appetizers were excellent! Both brunch entrees were delicous. The staff was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. I will be back again soon!!!

I've been to Slate a few times
I've been to Slate a few times and always enjoy myself. Most recently a large group of us went for brunch for my birthday. The staff was very attentive, friendly and made us feel at home. The was wonderful and everyone had a good time. I'm looking forward to going back again in the near future!

Went there on a date. Ambiance
Went there on a date. Ambiance was nice, quiet and appropriately lit. Food was good and affordable. Wine was great. Service was very good too.

The restaurant was very busy
The restaurant was very busy due to everyone - including my husband and I - using a Gilt City voucher on the last day possible. Even with it being busy though, our server was great and if not always attentive, very aware that she wasn't able to be and apologizing for it. The food was delicious. I'd definitely recommend getting the warm doughnut holes with trio of dipping sauces to start. Might not go for brunch again as without the deal it seemed it would be rather expensive, but glad we went with the voucher for sure.

The new dinner menu is delicious.
The new dinner menu is delicious. I plan on coming back very soon! I reccomend the shishoto pepper appetizer, blackened fish entree and duck entree.

I generally do not write reviews,
I generally do not write reviews, but feel strongly that Slate deserves some notice for a promising re-start in Glover Park. Evidently Slate is on its second Chef since opening. I missed the first, but the current chef (May 2013) is promising. Menu is nicely varied---ranging from burgers to risottos and nicely done fish. Noise level is, yes, "energetic," but my sense is that most of the patrons like that. Wait staff was charming and devoted. Patrons seemed stylish and discerning. Promising.

Very satisfied w our experience, super intimate for friends, small groups, or ate. Make it what it is it was suitable for anything. Loved it

Great people & Very Good Wine List
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our date night. My wife had the Risotto and Scallops - very good but the scallops were a tad bit over-cooked. I had the Burger with Fried Egg - AWESOME!! Next to the hospitality the wine was perhaps the best part of the evening - it was a Pinot Noir but unfortunately I can't remember the name - we finished the bottle ;)

Great Scallops and Ahi appetizer. Fresh Fish and Duck Entrees were solid choices. Desserts were limited. Interesting Wine List.
Service was fair, wine presentation was not executed properly. Chef visited table, which was nice.

small place and limited menu - and at first we were concerned about what to order etc. however we each got a salad and the grilled romain was outstanding and we each got a starter which was very generous. the mac n cheese was terrific as was the scallops. Very cute small neighborhood place

Nice Neighborhood Find
Slate has a small but interesting menu. For the starter we choose: Devils on Horseback and Baked Brie (good). We followed those with a Grilled Romaine Salad (excellent). For the entrees: Duroc Pork Chop and Steamed Clams (outstanding). Skipped Dessert.
Service was friendly and professional. Wine choices were Pinot Noir ans Sancerre....the Sancerre was especially good.

We went on a Monday for lunch at 12:15 and we were the only ones in the restaurant so our waiter was very attentive and it was a nice environment. We both ordered the Fried Chicken Sandwich, which was a huge portion for the price. The slaw wasn't too spicy and overall the lunch was good.

We took a chance on Slate but I'm so glad we did. All the staff were friendly and our server Molly couldn't have been more pleasant. The menu isn't vast, which makes deciding easier. I had the NY strip which was awesome. The cheesecake was super tasty too. The ambience was awesome for date night and even the manager/chef I think he was, came out to ask about the food (always a great sign). Although it was a bit pricy, it was worth it and we will be returning.

Delicious and cozy
I can't wait to return to this establishment. The crab mac 'n cheese was delicious, and the house white wine was a perfect accompaniment.

This was my first time there. Our waitress was Karina. She was wonderful and made my time there wonderful. The wine was absolutely delicious. I only had the asparagus but it was so good! I will be going back!!

Nice time at Slate
My Lady and I went to Slate during restaurant week. We stopped at the bar on the way in and the bartender was wonderful! He made my lady a wonderful gin cocktail with cinnamon that was delicious! He talked about how they came up with various cocktails and told the tales with verve! We were seated for dinner and really enjoyed the service, as our waitress was wonderful! The food, I'm sorry to say, was just ok. I had the Filet Mignon medalions, and the flavor was good, but they didn't have the mignon texture one expects. They felt more like sirloin. My lady had a rissotto dish, which was also ok, but just didn't have that last bit of flavor you want.
We will certainly come back to Slate again and try some different dishes. The service great!

The kitchen was very willing
The kitchen was very willing to work with a food allergy and created a variation of each dish we were interested in. Thank you!!

burger was great as well as the fish and chips!! different style cole slaw added a nice touch

Even though the place was full and they were busy, we were seated quickly and the staff very attentive. Specials that day were very good but we would go back to try more of the wine selections.

Best of Glover Park
Slate has delicious small plates and, as one would hope in a wine bar, fantastic wines.

Great little find.
Slate is a tucked away gem. The restaurant has a small door entrance and very little store front view, thus my reference of being tucked away. Once you enter it there is only a curtain as an entrance to the bar/dining room. The bar was very inviting and would be a great neighborhood wine bar hangout. The decor is clean and sparse with hangings of old corkscrew collections. The ceiling is wood plank giving a more rustic feeling and a nice touch.. I always appreciate finding personal wine collections as they are cherished by others. The spices of the food is the key.they were not subtle, however provided unique flavors which tantalize your taste buds. Daniel, the proprietor, kept a keen eye out for quality service and customer satisfaction.
