fix your phone, so that people with Groupons from places other than West Orange know that you are still in business.
We had a really nice time last night. Thank you for honoring the Groupon in your new restaurant and I wish you much success. The ONLY thing that I would suggest, and I realize you likely can't, is the cigarette smoke coming back into the restaurant while we were dining.
I'm sure as it transitions more to a bar-type environment when the more mature people leave :-) it's not as much an issue, but that was unpleasant for non-smokers and it seems like something that could easily be remedied.
Service was attentive but inconsistent, and they took forever to collect my credit card at the end. We had multiple servers, all owners or family, we think. The young lady was very good about checking and returning our order before it even got to us because they didn't get it right. My wife's first cocktail was excellent but the repeat order of the same was terrible.
If sushi is 50% of your menu, please ensure that you have both the ingredients and a staff to prepare it. I purchased the groupon with the understanding that Slate was a fine sushi restaurant, I was very disappointed to find out that sushi was not available due to the absence of a chef to prepare it.
Wonderful atmosphere. It would be ideal for an adult night out or a dinner party. Cheap but excellent beer selection. Will definitely be back!
Great Place to watch the game great ambience
Improve the product. Our server was fine, but everything I ordered - except the soup - did not match what was described on the menu, and what was provided was not good.
The look and feel of the restaurant says that they should be a success but at 6-7 pm on a Friday evening and there are only two tables sat, says that there is a big problem. Instead off sitting around talking, attend to your guest. Our drinks took way too long for no one to be in the restaurant and they seemed incomplete. Something was missing. Second, fire Samantha or retrain her. She needs to know the menu and what is available. Every piece of
my eel and shrimp tempura roll fell apart when I tried to pick it up. I don't know if it wasn't that good or if I was already done with my experience.
The scallop was too small compared to the bacon wrapped around it. all u can taste was the bacon.
From Our Editors
At Slate Restaurant, a bar the size of stretch limo radiates red light and glass facets hang like icicles from a glowing blue chandelier. This delicate balance between hot and cool is central not only to the atmosphere, but also to the cuisine—in the kitchen, chefs enhance herb-crusted fish and roasted meats with sweet-and-spicy flourishes including slices of roasted pineapple and splashes of spicy chili sauce.
After 10 p.m. on the weekends, however, attention shifts away from the delicate balance to focus on live DJs spinning pulsating dance beats, a panel of flickering flat-screen TVs, and strobe lights streaking across the dance floor. Bartenders mix inventive drinks such as sake bombs and green tea martinis until 2 a.m. on weekends.
