Such a beautiful restaurant and the food was delicious!
Friendly wait staff, great wine (rosé), excellent burger.
Great food. Small and intimate restaurant. Did the tasting menu with wine pairings—great value!! One waiter shared the specifics of each wine we requested he pair with each course. Portions a little small for my husband. We were gifted a drink pairing because it was our anniversary and then charged for dessert so the discount was only $2 instead of $20, but the thought was there. Didn’t complain because the service was good.
Update: Slate actually reached out to us because of the confusion. I wish we would have spoken up to give them a chance to rectify the confusion. Amazing customer service!!
The paella is amazing! The wine list is extensive! There is something here for everyone and all of it is delicious. My friends always request that we come back.
Great food! Staff and chef were knowledgeable, passionate, and approachable.
Food was excellent. Service was slow, due in large part to problems in the kitchen (according to our server). When we complained about the long wait for dessert, they deducted the cost.
The wine service and selections were excellent. The service was very cordial and welcoming. It is a good place for friends who want to talk and enjoy the wine. Our group of four never felt rushed. I rate the restaurant with high marks for wine and quiet conversation.
Slate is the best! It’s great for a casual happy hour or a special occasion. Just had an engagement brunch there and the service and food couldn’t have been better! Highly recommend!
We had a great time at Slate. The wine pairings were fun, information packed, and tasty. The food was delicious. The service- friendly and knowledgeable. We will recommend to friends and go back!
Had a wonderful experience, delicious food and great wine. The staff was friendly and attentive. The filet was outstanding, rivaling many great steak houses. A definite must when visiting DC!
We truly adore Slate. We have only ever gone for brunch, which is fairly quiet and low key. The bartenders and manager are very sweet and love to chat with customers. We enjoy going here and will be back!
Good selections of wine from across the world. Food was delicious. Nice hostess and friendly management staff.
We were 3 people , one person did not get what he ordered .
In good récupération they préparé the Wright meal extremely fast and did not charge us for it.
That concludes for a very good experience
Brought 10 people from my office to celebrate year-end event. Danny prepared a wonderful dinner with options for vegetarians and wine pairings with each dish. Event was simply outstanding. Paella is to die for. Wines were great. Even desserts were excellent. Highly recommended.
Cute wine bar, but brunch wasn’t good. Probably would go back just to sit at the bar for wine and apps. Service was slow.
We had a graduation/Mother’s Day brunch and it was fabulous! We had someone with dietary restrictions and they were more than accommodating!
Nicolas salad was excellent. Wine selection is thoughtful and extensive.
Food well prepared and delicious. Varied and interesting wine list. Excellent by the glass wines available with some outstanding choices by the bottle. Staff knowledgeable and owner is very involved and knows his wines.
Great wine selection, knowledgeable bartenders, especially Ellen and Ruben. Sexy little bites at happy hour.
The impressive wine list never disappoints. Knowledgeable staff and wonderful food. The best part of the experience is hanging out with the chef/owner/som, Danny!
Tuna burger!!! Awesome!
First time dining at slate Wine Bar. Food was absolutely delicious. Service was good Tad overbearing but would not discourage me from going back.
Love Slate Wine Bar. Not only is the wine bar varied, but the food is excellent and pairs very well with the wines. The service is friendly, warm and knowledgeable. I had the tuna tartare and pita chips appetizer with the French onion soup. These paired nicely with my flight of three sparkling wines. Delicious!
My wife and I loved our dinner at Slate Wine Bar. Don't let the name fool you, this wine bar is run by a known chef, and has seriously good food. Then again, it is a wine bar, so the wine pairings with that good food takes the experience to a whole new level. My wife and I are foodies, and we eat out often. Slate was one of the first really great meals I have had in 2018.
We got the 3 course tasting menu along with the wine pairings. Since my wife and I got different meals, the paired wines were different for her and I, and this is what is great about Slate. All in all we each had 4 different wines, and still only drank about 3 servings of wine each. The wine pairing were excellent for the course being served to the individual, but maybe not suitable for a whole meal, but then that's why we only got 2.5 ounces to pair with the course.
The waitress was a bit new, with a few rough edges to her service. She was, however, attentive and eager to please, and will most certainly be a fine addition to the waitstaff in a few weeks. I took off a star, but that was just our luck, and doesn't say much about Slate overall.
We will come back, next time with friends!
Loved it! Such a great find for my group of friends. Bottomless mimosas, variety of options, all wonderful!
Had the burger today. Cooked to my preference and excellent.
This was our first time visiting Slate - surprised we had not stumbled in sooner. A neighborhood gem with solid offerings for both drink and food. We'll likely be making this a regular stop in the local rotation.
Can't say enough about this place. Great food and wine, with a great owner.
If you want to relax and enjoy superb food, classy wine and superb service.....it's a sure bet!!
Amazing wine options, delicious food, attentive and cheerful service, quiet enough to enjoy a good conversation. I highly recommend!
It was simply amazing !!!! The service! The vibe!! I really enjoyed myself.
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
Had the burger this time. Very flavorful and cooked exactly how I asked.
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!
Love Taco Tuesday! Never a disappointment with the food or the service. Definitely a favorite spot!
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!
Went there for restaurant week, wait staff was pleasant and friendly. Atmosphere was amazing and food was incredible.
