"My husband and I frequently dine at Slate. We have never been disappointed. On this particular night, I ordered the mussles, which were spectacular. I've never seen them quite that large, and they were very tender. My husband had the mac and cheese and slate salad - one of his favorite combinations Drinks are generous, and the food is very good."

"SLATE is a beautiful little restaurant, a rare find that is off the "beaten track" from the crowded and tired Rittenhouse Square scene. Great ambiance with hands-on attention from the owner who covers every base from bar-tending to serving. SLATE affords an elegant little marble bar, large and enticing enough to enjoy a linen napkin quality dining experience right at the bar if one so chooses, and intimate enough for a pre-dinner drink if your preference is to later sit in their unique dinning area. Wonderful choice of wines, beers, entrees, appetizers and salads. A beautifully appointed restaurant that is comfortable, yet with an understated elegance. This is not a fast food restaurant with a BYOB hurry-up/finish-up mentality, Rather, SLATE is a place where one can take the time to enjoy the unique experience."

"The food was not memorable nor worth the price. Service was so so. One woman was responsible for the 10-15 tables in the restaurant, though the bartender was attentive and helped out as needed."
