6pm reservations allowed us to get happy hour drinks. 2nd time visiting in a couple days. Cheese and meat charcuterie was great.

Limited menu for those who are gluten-sensitive though the chef was happy to accommodate my needs. Kids menu is pretty traditional (burger, pizza, pasta) without much choice for kids with a mature palette or those who want to eat healthy. Great ambiance and very good tastes.

Wonderful! Eat here! Some of the best food we've had in a long time. Homemade breakfast sausage to die for and the creamiest grits I've ever had! Everything is super high quality. The service is amazing.

Mark was our server he provided great service he started the service off with good conversation which set the tone for a great experience, and the food was great. We had eaten off the brunch menu. If I had one negative thing to say the scrambled eggs was very overcooked and hard. That would be the only negative. Will try this place again.

This was not good at all. I finally got my mom to go with me for her birthday and it was awful. The appetizers were awful tasting. The drinks were trash. If I had never been to Slate before I would definitely not go back. I have eaten at Slate numerous times after work, friends birthday’s and family birthdays. I cannot recommend this to anyone again. We had appetizers, drinks and entrees with a bill of almost $150 and still had to order Chinese food on the way home. Highly, highly disappointed. This was my moms first time there and I feel bad about the quality of the food.

Food was amazing! Mac and cheese a 20 on scale of 1-10. Brisket was tender. French dip and au jus was delicious!
Definitely a wonderful gem we’ve found for future visits to Orlando.

I have been here a few times. keep hoping for something special but keep being disappointed. Food just ok. Nothing special and over priced for the portion size and taste. Service fine but again nothing special. long wait between simple appetizers and the main course. Three strikes they are out. Plenty of other choices..

We had the worst service that we have had in a restaurant in a very long time. First they couldn’t figure out who is going to be our server. Finally we were able to order drinks and they took a long time to come. When they did come only my wife’s drink came. I waited almost 10 minutes in mine never came. I had to ask them to check and they claim the bar was backed up. Then we ordered dinner and asked for bread in the bread never came until we asked for it again.

I tried Slate several times many years ago when they first opened. I never really loved their food. It was a limited menu and it seemed like there were always issues (ex. chicken was raw inside more than once). Therefore, it seemed strange that the parking lot and restaurant were always full. My husband and I decided to try it again. It is now one of our favorite restaurants. I don't know if they've changed chefs, changed ownership, etc. but we love it! The service and ambiance were always top notch. Now the food is on the same level. I have lots of favorites - french dip, margherita pizza, mac and cheese, salad, fries, etc. I'm hungry just thinking about it! We love sitting in the back room by the fireplace. It's especially nice on cool evenings when they open up the windows. So glad we tried it again! Now we dine there frequently.

The food was not tasty, the appetizer (charcuterie and cheese) and the dessert (coconut pudding ) we ordered were not good at all and didn’t worth the money.

We ordered off the happy hour menu, and there were a few hits but mostly misses. We have had better pizza at airports. It was extremely dark in the restaurant. We could barely see our food. We asked if they could turn on a few lights, but it never happened. We used to visit this restaurant for brunch, but it’s not what it used to be.

It was almost impossible to get drinks. When the drinks finally came, the champagne was flat. The second drink I ordered the glass had lipstick all over it. I ordered a $35 dollar Ribeye cooked medium, it was well done and not a $35 dollar cut. The best thing about the experience was that the waiter was funny and acknowledged the poor service.

The service was horrible. We were seated for more than 10 min before anyone came over to us. They were not busy and had servers hanging out in groups. We ordered French toast and was told that it was not ready yet. We were there at 11.30 and they opened at 9 am. The replacement order took 30 mins to come out. No manger came over to apologize. I would not go there again

I got food poisining after eating the brisket dinner that night. After we left, I started feeling bad around midnight and by 2 am was sick for 24 hrs.

We have been there many times, with no incidents. I would recommend to a friend, but I feel you should look into this. The brisket was dry and seemed like it was just warmed up as it was dry, not like usual.
