Staff was fine. Food was pretty underwhelming and overpriced. Space was pretty average. Food was clearly sitting out awhile before serving since the hollandaise on my eggs started to congeal. Won’t come back.

Great food and service. Try the shrimp appetizer and filet. Good selection of wines and Danny will take care of you!

Slate is a neighborhood gem. Tried the Chefs Valencia paella and had to return for more. My date had the seafood paella and I the vegetable. The paella was flavored to perfection and the rice was firm and flavorful. The vegetable were fresh and crisp and the seafood abundant. My starter was a green soup which was light and flavorful. My date enjoyed a fresh arugula salad with grated cheese and house dressing. The red wine t compliment the meal was superb.

We had such high hopes! But the place was empty when we got there (on a Saturday night), and the loud pop music was unexpected and took away from the wine bar atmosphere. The food was okay, and the wine list was short and pricey.

Not some terrible experience, but we will not go back. There are plenty of wonderful spots to get wine and good food in the city!

The duck spring roll was great, but otherwise the food was fair to good. The service was good, notwithstanding that there were 2 new servers training and the chef was helping out with table service. In fact, I think the service would have been better if the chef had stayed in the kitchen - he was quite annoying, was not at all welcoming, and seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Not worth going back.

Unfortunately, I did not care for this place. We were the only table in the loft area and service was SLOW! My water glass had lipstick on it, and my $30 filet mignon came out cold. It took so long to my food I ate it anyway out if fear that it would take twice as long to get a new steak. I can't honestly recommend this place due to my experience, but maybe it was just a bad night?!?!?

I have been to Slate for many special occasions from birthday parties to Easter Sunday brunch so there was no question this would be the perfect place to take family and meet friends the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. With a larger group of people (6-7) the owner/head chef Danny was able to make excellent recommendations on the wine knowing we were ultimately there for his famous paella but still wanted to relax and hang out with our loved ones. When it came time to order dinner we ordered one of each of his paellas (vegetarian, seafood, and Valencian) so everyone at the table could try all and debate which was best (we couldn’t decide on one.) When the food came out those at other tables with larger parties quickly followed suit in doing the same thing. After dinner Danny was able to recommend some excellent shareable deserts for the table and a lovely desert wine. Overall the experience was perfect for the evening. My family was able to catch up with family friends while enjoying paella, wine, and service at a quality that you can’t get elsewhere in DC. Well definitely be back!
