I have eaten here often over the years and almost always enjoyed everything. However, the food and the service seem to have have slipped recently. Our trout came to us uncooked in the middle, the eggplant was underdone, and the crispy imperial rolls were barely cooked. When we sent out trout back, it did not come until we were almost done with everything else. They also lost our coffee order and we had to chase down the waiter ( who was otherwise very nice) to get the bill. At the prices they charge, they need to do a better job.
The slanted door never disappoints. From the time they were in the mission with a real slanted door. Thanks for the cotton candy on a nicely designed stand! It made me remember how great the food and service has always been! Nice to know somethings never change.
I had heard how good it was but it was just so so. The Slanted Door Spring Rolls did not taste freshly made and the scallops were rubbery. It did not live up to the hype.
Lovely view, good food, interesting presentations.
Much, much too loud for conversation without shouting.
One dish was truly excellent. The other was good. A bit pricey but tasty. Bustling environment. Pleasantly noisy. Well experienced servers. We
The food was as good as we had heard about. Noise level is high, but to be expected in this lively setting. Overall, very enjoyable.
Excellent location and food, servers and service was great. Enjoyed the unique cotton candy dessert. Really crowded and loud so plan to shout a bit to converse.
Asked our server to give us a good vegan meal, didn"t even look at the menu, and it was GREAT!!! Front desk was rude when I called to move our reservation 15 minutes later because of a flight delay, though.
Be prepared for a super busy and crowded restaurant! ..and we visited on a Tuesday night in November! The Slanted Door deserves all the attention. Cindy was an excellent server - attentive but not overbearing. She read our table very well...suggested a half order of the pork/shrimp summer rolls as we were also ordering the lettuce wraps for an appetizer. Perfect! We especially enjoyed the lettuce wraps but both were excellent. The Clay pot chicken was ok but not the top of our recommendation list. We look forward to going back and check some of the other local delicacies!
Every time I am in SF, I always get to Slanted Door. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire country.
One of my favs in the city! A little noisy for a business meeting if you are there at noon but overall a great place!
Ate here twice on our trip to San Francisco. Unique and well prepared Vietnamese cuisine. Shaking Beef was the best. Very helpful and attentive server. Spectacular view of the Bay.
Amazing food, drinks, ambiance. Would be great if they also offer some coloring pages and crayons for the kids!
Food is great. Staff are very good. But the seating is VERY tight. Felt like the person at the next table was eating with us. Plus, that creates a loud room!
This is one of our favorite restaurants in SF. We drive from Walnut Creek to dine there. Beautiful drive in to the City; amazing food, view, staff and service. Love Slanted Door every time we go!
Wonderful food and service. Truly great!
Problem was very loud environment which impacted our ability to fully enjoy our time there.
Therefore, lower score for ambiance.
Service was friendly, efficient, fun. Food:A+. Sommelier: friendly and informative and super helpful
We loved every bite. Ahi tartare, spring rolls, jicama and grapefruit salad, shaking beef, lemongrass chicken and lichee cotton candy. We surprised our kids and all were soo happy!
Wonderful flavors and colors
One of my favorite restaurants in the nation. I go there every time I am in SF.
Creative and delicious food, beautiful view of lighted Bay Bridge, fun atmosphere, wonderful owner, Debbie, was exceptionally accommodating and oh so friendly! Pricey, but such a special experience!
I went with three of my co-workers. We shared an appetizer of springrolls which was delicious; the sauces were amazing. Three of us had the cellophane crab noodles. The noodles were delicious, with chunks of crab and full of flavor. We are going back again.
Service was terrible. Food was just ok. Very noisy. This used to be a wonderful restaurant with excellent food and service. It has gone downhill in recent years. Would not go again.
Food was great, but it was sooo loud!
I have mixed feelings about Slanted Door. It’s super popular for obvious reasons and as a result it is really crowded and uncomfortably loud. I have to commend their attentive staff - despite being super busy, there is no compromise to the quality of service they provide. All that said, I think the greatness of the restaurant is captured in their “Out the Door” model - and that will be how I continue to get my fix in order to avoid the expensive and over crowded restaurant. Definitely some dishes that miss the mark at the restaurant.
It was so noisy it was hard to hear the person I was with. The food was mediocre at best. Service was slow.
Had the shrimp dumpling!! Awesome! Spare ribs too!! cellophane noodles with crab were yummy but not a lot of crab meat in the dish, still delish! Tuna main course was great! All in all, tasty, but loud place, sitting in booth not great for speaking with our other guests, table would be better! No pork bun either! But wow great, would go back next time in town!
Service is outstanding, very friendly and cooperative. Excellent and diverse Menu for all kinds of taste. Good food portions and well priced for the restaurant category. Nice view to the bay! Highly recommended+++
Great food and great service.
The food is always exquisite. Seasonal specials compliment the traditional dishes.
Gorgeous wine list; great service; and lovely setting!
Great food like usual, but hostess needs work.
We have always visited slanted door as our favourite restaurant in San Fran. Seems they are cutting corners - piles of fried onion and no other vegetable in the shrimp dish made it very ordinary. Pork spareribs were undercooked.
Totally disappointed at what was formerly a lovely restaurant. We won’t return.
Food was late. Bugs were in drinks.
Fantastic, unique foods blended to please any palette!
Super loud. My Apple watch told me I am in a loud environment. Over 90 dB. Crazy.
Too fried and dry- bland-flavors are blah-definitely fallen in fusion flavors
The best place on the waterfront...always terrific.
The food was delicious and a good representation of Vietnamese fusion. The restaurant had a beautiful view of the bay. Great place for a date!
Best lamb I’ve had in a very very long time. Excellent service and great food. Can’t go wrong with this place!
