Hard floors and walls cause too much noise for any conversation to be held without almost shouting. We left and had coffee elsewhere (a quieter place) so we could converse. Menu is a bit limited.

Upstairs could be a great venue for Friday evening drinks, but there's simply too many people there. I guess that's a good sign but I can't quite understand why. Drinks are too expensive, the food is rather average. I actually go quite often as my friends love it. They think it's a trendy place to be. Sauv blanc, shouted conversations... More

Having dined here on many occasions and spent some considerable time enjoying Friday night drinks here over the years it's about time I give credit where it's due. The place is beautiful, well spaced and very trendy. The food is sensational with their head chef always coming up with the goods no matter what and when (breakfast, lunch or dinner)... More

The way they treat their staff in this restaurant is disgraceful. Not only do not they not pay them but they abuse travellers by taking them on for a weeks trial and never paying them. The two guys that run and own this restaurant should be ashamed of themselves as they bully staff into fearing them over the most insignificant... More

It offers everything whether you come for a meal or drink. So good to have something down this side of town.

Nice for drinks in summer as they have a lovely outdoor area. Went on weekday in the evening and it was crowded outside, although indoors it was very quiet. $8.00 for a cider, I didn’t expect less. There are other drinking places in the CBD and we don’t go out of our way to head to Slate.

When i eat out i look for execution, creativity and value. I think Slate hits it on all counts. The menu is diverse and adventurous and the service is attentive. The room seems to amplify noise so it gets hard to talk during peak lunch and dinner times. Thoroughly recommend for groups and even when dining alone.

Slate is a fairly average restaurant/bar in my experience. I don't work very far away and have been quite a few times. There is nothing that I would say is outstanding relative to other CBD bars or restaurants. In fact, in my opinion it is a little on the expensive side relative to the quality of the food and drink.... More
