About

This restaurant is permanently closed.

Slate is a contemporary American bar and restaurant. The restaurant has two main dining areas. The first is a main dining room that is primarily decorated in dark woods with matte finishes. Everything from the bars to the tables to the walls have wooden accents that give the restaurant a rustic yet classy atmosphere. The second dining area is Slate's outdoor patio, complete with several covered tables where diners can enjoy their food under the sun when the weather is right.

Slate's menu is split into two sections: Smaller and Bigger. The "Smaller" section is primarily appetizers and tapas, meant to be enjoyed with a cocktail or two. The "Bigger" section is made up of the main courses and entrée options. Some of Slate's signature dinner dishes are the pork coppa, fennel crusted black cod, lemon pepper linguine, polenta cakes with caponata and grilled flank steak with heirloom squash and chermoula.

I loved Slate when it was Equinox, I really hope that it is not closing because my friends and I have always enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and the service.

The best part of the restaurant is the gorgeous patio hidden off the main drag of Mississippi Ave. We ordered six items and 2 were amazing the other four were ok and pretty much all used the same ingredients for different dishes. The waiter was very nice but a bit clueless on the specials and menu items. I wish Equinox was still there!!

The food was very good as were the cocktails. The problems were: 1. They were out of about 5 items on the menu. This was a Tuesday night at 7:00pm. That shouldn't have happened. 2. The server was overwhelmed. They were short staffed and she let us know it.
The good thing is that the food was really very good.

The menu shown on the OpenTable site was not available. Menu shown was only for weekdays. So we showed up to a breakfast/brunch menu when we were looking for a full lunch menu. Really wasted our time... suggest having a note that says (lunch menu not available on the weekends)

My boyfriend and I were visiting Portland for a friend's wedding. We didn't know much about the city, so when looking for restaurants we did simple searches through OpenTable. Slate was undoubtedly our best find! We were seated in the outdoor patio/garden, which is a beautiful space. Our server was kind, funny and attentive. The drinks were absolutely delicious. Most importantly, however, the food was simply divine. Each dish was so tasty, well executed, and visually appealing, that I wished I could try everything on the menu. I would absolutely recommend Slate to everyone in Portland, and can't wait to eat there again!

Everything was excellent! We especially enjoyed the steak and the vegetarian entree. Can't wait to go back and dine on their patio.

Slate was a wonderful spot to celebrate Mother's Day. The menu, food and service was amazing. I especially enjoyed the spicy Bloody Mary. We will be back.
