A bit pricey but so yummy.
this is restaurant is too expensive for what it is. it was good but not worth $100 per person which is what it came out to be! I've had good Asian food for much less. we originally had a reservation for 6 ppl. then it increased to 8 ppl, and they charge a " family style" rate over 6 ppl of $65 per person. It came highly recommended, but not for this price.
Amazing cocktails and food in an unbelievable setting right on the water. This is not to be missed.
Very imaginative and eclectic food selection. Service was first rate. The melon salad was inspirational. You don’t see melons on the menu much. The dumplings we had were new to me and very tasty. I think they had a bean paste in them.
I had been to Slanted Door years ago when they were small and first starting out; it was amazing. I was excited to go back but it seems it has just gotten to be TOO big. It was quite loud in the restaurant and our waiter spoke in a sheer whisper. We started out by ordering a few drinks and small plates. Our food arrived well before our drink order. We ordered the dumplings, lettuce wraps & spareribs. The serving size on the spareribs was as big as an entrée. With the service being less than desired we opted to leave after getting our small plates. It just was not the experience we were hoping for. I would not go back nor would I recommend it. We have had many a great meal in San Francisco and this unfortunately was not one of them.
Overrated and with very poor service from the staff. Not the best Vietnamese in SF either. Too expensive for the output.
Was expecting a lot more on my first time at Slanted Door. Food was okay but there are many comparable Vietnamese restaurants in the Bay Area. Tuna Tartare and The shrimp and chive dumpling was really good. My date had the pork shoulder noodles that was like any bun dish at any Vietnamese restaurant. I have the shaken beef and it was super soft and tasty. But for $43? There is a Vietnamese restaurant in Oakland (the one with a Horse theme) that has this dish and it’s just as good for half the price. And the bathrooms were not as clean as I would expect for a high-end restaurant. There was tissue wedged into a keyhole on the door to prevent people from looking in. Also there was a used mop just resting against the common sink.
It was a friends recommendation and my girlfriend and I were extremely pleased. The Somalia recommended an excellent bottle of wine to compliment the food, and the service was excellent and the food was prepared perfectly.
We all love dining at the Slanted Door. The food is fabulous, as is the service. The noise level was terrible, and I wish you could fix it, but it won’t keep us from coming back.
Hello - I made a reservation for four on August 1, 2019. We arrived ten minutes early on September 12, 2019, for 6:00 pm arrangements. Upon arrival the hostess made it clear that we would not receive a comfortable booth (which I had requested for our 33rd Anniversary), and that the booths were taken until 7:30 pm, as all parties were just seated.
Is there not a way to check over your reservations to see what type of Celebrations would take place that evening? The people I observed in the “taken” booths were all wearing business attire, therefore....regulars.
Would it be better to skip the reservation process and just show up...lmk.
It was an honor to be able to enjoy the last San Francisco lunch here.
Food was Good , But Best of the best was service.
Our Server was really friendly, and good care for ours.
If I go back to San Francisco, I really want to go again.
Thank you San Francisco, Thank you Slented Door!
Great view with the Bay bridge!
The food quality will shock you with how mediocre it is. Some dishes seem like afterthoughts while others portray a faux quality.
Restaurant banks on word of mouth and location over food.
Cocktails were good, though.
Don’t get the spare ribs
Wonderful flavors and spot on starters. The view of the bridge was wonderful too.
We enjoyed our dinner, the imperial rolls were awesome !
The other items were good, but not great .
We were hoping for great for the money .
I've always loved the ambiance of this restaurant - very dynamic and inviting; a great dining place to take family and friends anytime. That's why I took my cousin and his family from Toronto, Canada to experience their great dinner menu. We started with the Spicy ahi tuna tartare, which has the perfect blend of freshness & spice. Being "seafood lovers"ourselves, we enjoyed the caramelized wild gulf shrimp & the spicy squid partnered with their cellophane noodles. Not to miss the Celebration cake for dessert which is enough for our whole table. Service was fabulous! Can't wait to come back for more...
Everything from food and service was outstanding!
Wonderful view. We were seated close to a window, then given a larger table where we were both able to enjoy the view. Appetizer was very tasty, as was the beer. Main dish was nothing exciting - expected more for a $30 entree. Service was extremely slow and waiter made very few check-ins. We had to flag staff down — very disappointing. We’ve heard many positive comments about the restaurant, so were extremely disappointed and will not return.
Wonderful and most helpful service! Everything was delicious! Flavorful and light - nothing heavy or overbearing. We all greatly enjoyed our feast!
Good food, decent wait.
From beginning to end we were truly impressed with everything, they made you feel like family!
Food was wonderful, as always. Our waiter was so attentive and always just "seemed to know" when to show up. We had a great experience. One of my favorite places to eat anywhere in the Bay Area!
too expensive for vietnamese food. appetitezers are the star of the menu.
Love love love Slanted Door and have followed them around SF for decades as they've grown and relocated, ultimately landing in this beautiful, light filled space in the SF Ferry Building. Food is always great! Service can be hit-or-miss (as a former food server I can only imagine how exhausted they are, busy all of time, plus servicing tourists). Panoramic view can be spectacular if your seated in the east-facing dining area (with view of the bay, Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Island, Bay Bridge, Port of Oakland container cranes and the East Bay skyline). North-facing dining area not so great. Nothing much to look at and tables are so close it is uncomfortable. Request a booth if you'd like any chance of holding a conversation with your tablemates. Toilet rooms are tired, clean but need to be refurbished.
Another excellent meal at Slanted Door. Thank you for the opportunity to celebrate two birth days.
Loved the ambiance, service, suggestions, and food. Excellent. The noise level was a bit too much! Hard to hear my companion.
Very loud ambient noise: they should do something about that.
Otherwise, very good
The combination of great food and excellent service - The restaurant outdid itself.
This place used to be good. That was years ago. It’s run down now. Owners crammed way too many tables and seats trying to cram as many people in as possible. Food is way overpriced for what you get. I thought the ambiance would be better but because it was packed (like that of a lunchroom in grade school) it is really not worth it. Very disappointed.
Fabulous food but very, very loud. If you don't mind the noise, the choice is great
The food is ALWAYS amazing at slanted door. Imperial rolls, crab noodles, shaking beef and whole fish some of my favorites.
Service can be hit an miss, on this visit it was more miss than hit, but the views and food mostly made up for it.
I met with out of town friends for lunch and was incredibly disappointed. Two of us ordered the pineapple spritzers which were delicious but for $9 apiece I could have had a glass of wine (I think - didn't look at the wine list.) I ordered the lemongrass pork and it was tasty when i was able to find a piece of pork buried in the cold noodles and limp greens which tasted like romaine lettuce. Lunch for 3 without alcoholic beverages was $109 - wish I would have eaten at one of the walk up spots in the Ferry Building! Will not be coming back...
Loved the dumplings , the shrimp with noodles and the jicama salad. Beautiful views and entertaining crowd
Great food as always, very good service at the bar
The food was delicious and the view of the Bay Bridge made it even better!
Interesting Vietnamese food, though not primarily Pho. Prices are steep, typical mixed drink is $15. The food is pricey but our waiter correctly advised us to share as the portions are adequate for that. Spring rolls were small. We got a half order which was three small pieces. The main course (lemongrass chicken) was enough for two with an order of jasmine rice. Nice location looking at the bay from the Ferry building.
I've been going to this restaurant for years (traveled from Monterey, CA) because it has been my favorite restaurant. However, portions have gotten smaller and prices have gone considerably up. I had the Imperial Rolls and the rolls were so small compared to past years ($16.00). The Cellophane Noodles with Crab ($28.00) also has also been downsized. Seems an order of Jasmine Rice was the only thing that got upgraded to a bigger bowl! I went there for lunch on Labor Day and the place was very busy with tourists. Not unusual as this made the atmosphere energetic.
