    Slate is unfortunately a poor representation of an upscale restaurant. As kind and well intended the server was he was completely unqualified to be serving our table. He lacked the basic knowledge of the food items and was completely unable to manage our dinner. Our entire order came out item by item instead of all together. Other than the pizzas, the food was way overpriced for extremely small portions and some dishes were honestly inedible. The brisket was served with burnt rock hard acorn squash and the plate was horribly over salted. I rarely send back a dinner but it was awful. The $50 halibut dish came with a minuscule 5-6 oz piece of dried out fish. My wife did not want to cause an issue by sending it back but she should have. It is rare that I feel that situations are completely mismanaged but last night was an example. The manager on duty approached the table after I sent back my brisket dish and very nonchalantly asked if everything was okay. As I began to share my displeasure, he abruptly cut me off and tried to justify why the acorn squash was hard and inedible. “You know sir, the squash is served with the skin on”. I was dumbfounded by his response but I kindly responded letting him know what my culinary background is. We do not expect anything for free but when a special family meal with my wife and 4 daughters goes as sideways as last night, it would have been appropriate for the manager to do something. Instead, no apologies were extended and 20% gratuity was automatically added to the check. Honestly, I am embarrassed for the server because not only was he ill equipped to manage our table but he had zero support to make the situation right. We arrived at the restaurant very enthusiastic and left very disappointed.

    I had the studded chicken and my husband had the Wagyu burger. He said the burger was "okay", but I loved everything about my dish. My daughter had the mushroom pizza, which had the potential to be good but I think they added corn starch to the pesto base because it had a gelatin-like texture which was off putting. It was also a little bland. My only complaint about the service is that it took the food a really long time to come out. We looked around, and most people didn't have food yet, and the restaurant wasn't packed, so I really don't get it (it's my second or third time coming here, it usually takes quite a while to get food). But everyone was extremely nice, our server was sweet, and the drinks were delicious. I'd come back again as long as I'm not in a rush.

    Holiday prix fixe menu, kitchen was slow and restaurant had more empty tables than seated. Soup was tasty but cold. Entrees missing accoutrements, only 2 of the four desserts available. We were seated 30 minutes after opening, very disappointed, for the money they were charging it showed a complete lack of effort from the kitchen

    We went for the Thanksgiving prix fix meal. Beyond the small portion size, the food did not taste good at all. They were out of almost every dessert and it was not even the main dinner rush hours you would expect yet. The kitchen was so backed up we paid and left without having the dessert we actually paid for. The server tried his best to apologize for the kitchen and food runner errors. They delivered our sides to us, but our entrees went to the table next to us. We felt bad he was having to say sorry to each of his tables individually due to continued kitchen mistakes. It’s a nice restaurant, but the food and wait times kill the vibe.

    We decided to eat at the bar and the service we received from James & Travis was exceptional, it was a treat watching them while eating excellent food. The portions were quite small but everything we ate was excellent, we had the pork belly, gnocchi and ravioli from the table menu and finished with the Olive Oil cake. We would highly recommend slate

    We were excited to go to Slate as we hadn’t been there for a while. It was awful! I asked for a table in a quieter area— not next to the bar, but we were seated right next to it & close to 2 other very loud parties. We had to shout to be heard & we were only a party of 4. Our food got to our table over an hour after we ordered & was mediocre at best! My $28.00 burger & fries (that’s right—$28!) was over cooked & dry & the fries were limp & greasy!! My husband’s $50.00 halibut was nothing special. I know halibut is expensive but this wasn’t a great prep for a nice type of fish. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind paying high prices when it is flavorful & nicely done & service is excellent. This was none of those things. Our server mostly ignored us & looked the other way each time he walked past our table. Never tried to make things better… just mumbled something about it being a new menu. No service recovery, no apology for inconvenience. I rarely say anything… I just don’t go back. Felt something needed to be said this time.

    This was our second time to Slate, the first was a great experience back in July. This visit though was disappointing at best. We were seated in a back corner and it took 10 minutes for anyone to even come over and serve water. It then took almost 15-20 minutes to receive cocktails. The appetizer was good but also took a while to come out. Entrees were fine but a side of the Mac and cheese was forgotten and came out after we finished. We also ordered glasses of wine with dinner and only one came out and had to wait 10 min for the other one. Really disappointing experience since it has a great ambience and our first experience was great.

    Very nice environment. Wish they had the sound a little lower, but it was a Tuesday night after 7:00 and it was less than half full. The service was amazing! Good teamwork and very attentive. If you go, GET THE HUSHPUPPY APPETIZER!!! Sooo good!!! I'm generally not a brisket person, but I decided to give it a try - excellent! I would definitely go for it again. One of our party had a mushroom flatbread! Wow! Really tasty! Next time in Orlando I will be back!!!

    Craft Beer, wines, salad and pulled pork pizza with in a dinner with two out of state relatives. Great service (server very knowledgeable). However the served portions of the items ordered was very small for the price paid. The food was good but nothing that will be remembered. Rating is taking in consideration the excellent server we had whom even suggested an Albariño wine to our relatives which was very appreciated. But with portions so small and the high prices the possibility of getting back to the establishment is remote.

    The food was way overpriced for the amount that you’re served. Walked away hungry. The only fish item they have is salmon and they were out of it. Server was outstanding but overall would not recommend this place due to the portion size in regards to cost and the loud music being played as you’re trying to listen and have conversation at your table. Much room for improvement.

    Don't expect your ordinary cuisine when you dine here. Outstanding menu that takes you out of your comfort zone. I love bringing new friends here for the first time. Yes, there is beef, chicken, fish on the menu but not the way you have had it prepared before. Give this restaurant a try, you'll be amazed.

    We were celebrating our friends anniversary, they came from a different state and we wanted to take them to a good brunch spot in our area, unfortunately our experience at Slate was not the best, service was mediocre, food took a ridiculous amount of time for how slow they were. The server disappeared because I think she was embarrassed the food was taking too long, the least she could have done was offer us more drinks which we all needed… we had to ask for the drinks ourselves and water refills were needed. I don’t think we will be going back anytime soon.

    Just right ambience, lighting, sound Nice greeting at host stand… valet was a little slow but he was nice… was surprised it wasn’t as busy as I had remembered prior to COVID… food was very good but a little on the pricey side - $28 for a Waygu burger and truffle fries - all good and I really enjoyed the smokin Rita Mezcal cocktail… we had a very nice time and our server did a nice job.
