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.

We were there for brunch during restaurant week, and so glad that we came. The food was great and the wine parings on-point. We were seated upstairs, which was much quieter than the main level.

One negative - there was a surprise ingredient in one of our dishes, so if you have allergies, be sure to speak up in advance.

Good enough we'll be going back!

We had three-course restaurant-week meals. Lamb chop appetizer was good, as was crab cake entree. The paella my friend had was not good. Rice was undercooked grainy/chewy.
