    Yesterday was Father’s Day- family went!! I don’t mind paying for something special- but the meals we got for 45.00 a person left a lot to be desired’! Please I ordered pototes to go that when I got them home- I couldn’t eat them - they had so much cayenne pepper it was horrible!! The waiter was terrible and you even ran out of cheesecake by 2:30!!! What an experience!! Not to happen again for sure!!!

    We had a rough first visit to Slate. The drinks and menu looks great. I asked the server if the brisket was fatty, and she assured us it was lean. I was then served a cut of meat that was 2/3 fat - and we got a very awkward response if they could prepare another one as described - something about how she cannot ask the chef to do that. Other items came out wrong, too. It's probably worth another visit, but it's unlikely we'll return.

    This is what Heaven tastes like! Staff seemed genuinely happy to be there, and the food was an unforgettable, incomparable experience of culinary artistry. I had the lamb rack with a side of asparagus. Husband had the strip loin with a side of macaroni. All was divine! Dave was our excellent server.

    Manager had to come out due to these issues: salad served with dressing that was requested on side. Long wait for pizza. Steak ordered medium came out very rare. Manager did comp the pizza and we appreciated that. We have been there before and each visit has had an issue. Seems like communication between the wait staff and the kitchen.

    It was super loud, but you could still hear the people across the table. The overall food was amazing. I was a little saddened by the desserts, but all in all it was great. The service was amazing and exactly what I expect. They knew standard service standards and there was a constant refill of water as needed.

    We had brunch there and it was good but not great! Largely due to attention to detail. We had two cups of coffee that were just warm, not hot. We had to ask for sweetener/creamer, these were then brought but with no spoon or stirrer so we had to ask for one and wait again. We ordered the brisket benedict. Whilst it tasted lovely one packed egg was too runny/underdone the other was over-cooked. Shame as with a little improvement this could have been great!

    The service was good, the atmosphere is pleasant, but the people talk very loudly, the noise level is high and the diversity of the menu is small. It's happy hour bar style to drink, chat and snack and not restaurant to go to dinner.

    I searched for a place that looked nice enough to celebrate our anniversary while on a staycation in Orlando. I made sure to state that when making the reservation. The valet was great and he was very pleasant. When we walked in I stated we were almost an hour early but that we didn’t mind sitting at the bar to wait. After ordering drinks, and two appetizers I asked my husband to go check and I assume they forgot about us because we were sat right away. I ordered a drink but switched the type of alcohol. I mention this because we were charged for the other type so charged almost $30 for a drink that I didn’t even finish. No mention of our anniversary. In fact, I felt rushed at times. We ordered dessert and even that took a really long time. In the end, the experience was mediocre and I felt it could’ve picked a better place to celebrate our 10 year anniversary.

    Attended a wine dinner with wines by Rossello. The food was absolutely excellent and really paired very well with the very good Rossello wines. Would definitely attend any future such events and after a hiatus from eating out much during Covid, we are planning to re-commence our dining with a further booking at Slate in the next few days.

    menu seemed to be random and disconnected. The temperature of the crispy brussels sprouts did not meet expectation when the dishes arrived at the table. Ordered the Truffle Fries and only half the fries had Truffle oil drizzled on them as well as no Parmesan present on any. When the Charcuterie & Cheese came out, no explanation of what came on the board and the presentation was mediocre at best. The lack of knowledge from the staff was very present throughout the whole experience.

    I selected Slate to celebrate Mother's Day. We went for a lovely dinner. They had a prefixed menu that included 3 courses, appetizer, Main Course and Dessert. Our server was efficient and extremely friendly. The executive Chef was there overseeing the operations and making everyone feel welcome. We will definitely be returning soon as the food (I had hush puppies and grouper, my husband had the grilled romaine salad and pork chop) was flavorful and abundant. Thank you again for a wonderful dinner.

    A VERY disappointing Mother's Day dinner all around. The prix fixe price was very high for what we got. For $65 I would at least expected a Mother's Day flower or some bread. The starters were OK, although the hush puppies were overcooked. The main food portions were small - the brisket was inedible, the pork was dry, and the beef was full of grizzle with absolutely no hollandaise sauce on one of the portions (I had to ask for additional sauce). The desserts were by far the high point although they took forever to get, apparently they lost our ticket, and we got a visit from the head waiter apologizing and offering to make it up on the check, which was appreciated, incredibly, we never heard from our waitress at all. We should have known this was not going to be a smooth evening when our drinks took forever and were delivered one at a time, and the Tanqueray Martini ordered was not a Tanqueray Martini at all. I don't think the Napoleon mentioned it was made with raspberries, which one of us is allergic to, and had ordered it - not good, and we were never asked about allergies by the waitress. We've been before and were very pleased, but something has changed and I was embarrassed to have suggested we go there on our special day, we will not be back.
