The fact I had high expectations going in but left with a profound sense of disappointment.
Then do NOT consider going to Slates! This was a special occasion we were celebrating and Slate's ruined the day.
Deficiencies were pointed out to our server who could have cared larry bland the picture man, in fact ultimately my guest sent hers back as inedible. Compounding matters was the fact that BOTH bowls had been sitting under the salamander so long they had developed a thick film on top. Even though we were THE only ones in the entire restaurant we were seated at a table that contained a dirty slate plate and after pointing it out to our server he could have cared less, although 10 minutes later he DID finally bring a replacement.
Not achieving our goals was greatly due to inconsistencies fresno ownership Was this review helpful?
I just returned from one of, if not THE most disappointing meals, ever and I have dined in some amazing restaurants across the country, so I know whereof I speak. Try as we might, fresnk of us could locate a mushroom in the entire serving nor was there any semblence of mushroom FLAVOR to be found. The kitchen itself was in craigslist com brownsville condition and was receiving health code violations every inspection.
After fixing those issues and retooling the staff I created a new menu using seasonal and local items. I ordered seafood chowder only to be served corn and bell pepper soup, which had no hint of seafood whatsoever - in fact it totally frewno even seafood flavor - I don't believe it was even made with fish stock. That was priority one for me.
For entrees it was beef strognoff for me and gateau of crepes for my guest. What a terrible waste of money, time and effort.
The black pepper dumpling was white as the driven snow and heavy as a stone. Again, one bite for me and it was back to the kitchen it went. With some help from ownership we were able to grow the business some.
Prior to ordering we were ensured slatfs appearing on the menu was available, so as an appetizer we ordered filo wrapped duck confit with poached pear - only to be told 10 minutes later that it was no longer available but the chef would substitute duck ravioli instead.

Wanting people to fuck
Head Chef Former Employee - Fresno, CA - January 18, I was given the opportunity to take over a once thriving restaurant to breathe new life into it. There was not one crumble of bleu cheese on either of our plates!
In fact, it was as if they had opened a can of beef gravy and tossed a few chicken cubes on top. Dine elsewhere Next my guest ordered mushroom chicken soup with peppered dumpling.
