Slate is a local gem, with a great menu. It is primarily a wine bar, but my wife and I don't drink - we love it for the menu. Even if you don't drink it is worth the trip for the outstanding food. The onion soup is perfectly balanced and my favorite entree is the chicken and bacon tacos. The owner is very friendly and the staff is always helpful.

Had a very good time with the family (5 ppl). Enjoy every bite of each dish we had. Excellent paella also. Great service and nice atmosphere. The wine list is superb as well

Julieta and Yaz we’re behind the bar and they were great! They were both personable and knowledgeable. We opted for the 3 course meal option with the wine pairing. We had the steak and tuna as our entrees. They were great! We had great conversation and they were both so easy to get to know. The customer service and the food were fantastic. I’m sure we will be back soon. Thanks for a great night!

Don't let this smaller restaurant fool you - the food is amazing! Although the interiors are a bit underwhelming, the food was some of the best I've eaten in DC. Their paella is delicious and served to impress. Their scallops and duck dishes were very savory. The wine pairing complimented each serving. Overall I would recommend Slate for anyone looking for a great food experience.
*Street parking is your best option! I drove around for quite a while trying to find parking in a garage but most are have restrictions.

Came for restaurant week. Didn't allow any a la carte options just the strict restaurant week menu. Portions were extremely small. Most of the options had an upcharge. Food was low quality and wasn't memorable at all. Definitely won't be back.
