Love the menu, high energy vibes, just great all around dining experience.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SF RestaurantThis is our favorite restaurant in San Francisco. Awesome food, appropriate wine list for the food options, and views of the bay bridge. Even though it is great for two people, it is even better with four or more so you can try more things on the menu.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the Slanted DoorFourth visit - we love it. Go there if you want creative cuisine with an Asian influence served by capable waitstaff in a gorgeous setting. Very hip. Neat wine list.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMost Excellent Dinning ExperienceThis was an excellent dining experience. The ambience and food was perfect. The service was flawless. Our lead server knew the well and went with her recommendations. of course glad we did. Loved the appetizers. The main course selection was amazing. It was my Dad's 80th Birthday and we shared the orders family style. In short, all of us at the table could not stop raving about the food and overall experience. Its been three days and I made reservations to go back.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and service.Fantastic food and service. Never disappoints. We love the papaya salad and pork belly dish. Thanks for always being on the fore-front of great dishes!!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMTop classHad a special birthday here. It was fantastic. The food was amazing and perfect service from all staff. Wish it was in London or I lived in San Fran!!!!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSlanted Door absolutely amazing!From the food to the off the menu wine our server offered, every part of our meal was absolutely perfect. I will definitely go back next time I visit San Fran. Located in the Ferry Building, it's not as touristy as you would imagine but definitely make reservations.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food; corporate atmosphereReally good Asian food and good drinks with fast service. Only complaint is that the dining room is enormous and therefore not very personal or intimate.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, drinks and service,Great food, drinks and service, but perhaps slightly too fast of a pace. I would also recommend adapting the meals to family style eating, i.e. bite size.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique, Consistant & DeliciousThis place always delivers! Great food that is way different from your typical restaurant but not that you feel uncomfortable ordering. The wait staff is always able to provide guidance and recommend great suggestions that bring together a memorable meal. Great food on top of an incredibly scenic location = something you will want to repeat many times. Selections are delivered as they are ready and it can sometimes come across as less than stellar service but it all comes together in the end. Well worth the effort to get a reservation.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHonest ReviewThis is an excellent restaurant and I cannot wait to go back again. I just hope that we have a different waiter next time; I found the waiter to be nonchalant and didn't really care about his quality of service to us. We still tipped him 20 %...maybe he was just having a bad day.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals I'veOne of the best meals I've had anywhere. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable and steered us in the right direction.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner at Slanted Door.Great dinner at Slanted Door. Wish it didn't take weeks to get a reservation. Imperial rolls and spare ribs are excellent as are chicken clay pot and glass noodles with dungeness crab. Wish the wine list was more user-friendly5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertaining ClientsDoing business over lunch, drinks or dinner is a large part of my success. My clients are frequently entertained by my competition, so I need to be sure I'm providing them with a memorable experience, whether it's just drinks or over lunch or dinner. The ambiance, service and food never disappoint at Slanted Door. Whether my guests are local or from out of town, the dining or drinks, combined with the amenities of the Ferry Building and the view over the bay and bridge offer an experience that very few others can boast. I will continue to give my guests, clients and family the enjoyment of the overall environment at the Slanted Door.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food; very noisyThe vibe, setting, and food here are all fabulous but it's very noisy!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMclaypot chicken not as goodclaypot chicken not as good as in the past...everything else top notch5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING!The food here is always so good! Love the chicken claypot. I am still mad at Charles Phan for closing down Wo Hing. Please open this back up in a smaller space.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were lucky to sit outsideWe were lucky to sit outside on the most beautiful day in the city. Wonderful view, great food, and much more serene than inside where you have to yell to the person sitting across from you- it's so loud. Food is delicious and great to share a bunch of dishes with a group of 4.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLook no further!Everything you want and need in a good dinning experience. Definitely a place I would return to and highly recommend to foodies. Great food, friendly attentive staff and, as advertised, a fabulous front row seat to the bay bridge light show. Thank you SLANTED DOOR!!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisy, but great food!A bit noisy for great conversation, but fantastic food. Our server had a tough task (split tickets for 6 people who all had a LOT of ?s) but he was great. The daikon radish rice cakes - wow. Tough to beat. Thanks for the great evening.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMa little noisy, but more thana little noisy, but more than made up for that with the food! outstanding!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!I got the cubed filet mignon - which was excellent. When I accidentally spilled another patron's beer and offered to buy him a new one, the waitress assured me they would take care of it. Great service!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the best!We had some of the best food ever at this restaurant. Everything on the menu was fantastic.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMafter dining at slanted doorafter dining at slanted door for 14 years, i have found a new outstanding favorite to add to my list : the thai snapper..it's whole and has this amazing, light vinaigrette with cilantro, onions, etc. The whole table was wowed. always love the slanted door spring rolls, grapefruit/jicama salad, cellophane noodles with crab, the veggies and more..YUM!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSlanted Door never fails toSlanted Door never fails to impress. The food is outstanding and the service is professional and friendly. Recommend taking your out-of-town visitors. The location can't be beat!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMfun and interestingI've been to the slanted door twice now and both times it has been wonderful. The food and service are great! The food is mostly Vietnamese and they have lovely cocktails as well as interesting NA beverages, like the pineapple spritzer I had during my lunch visit. Tables by the window or with a waterfront view are first come first serve, but there many tables with a view and both times I've gone I've been able to sit at a table with a view. You can also sit outside.
I've gone for lunch and dinner and each was great. It's a bit loud inside, but not so loud that you can't carry on a conversation. definitely go with friends because dishes are served family style and after reading the menu you'll want to order one of everything.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, cool viewThe first thing you notice at the Slanted Door is the cool decor and amazing view of the bridge which at night is spectacular. The food is very good and service is decent considering the place is consistently packed. I recommend order lots of small dishes and trying different stuff because the food is really very good. I would definitely recommend trying it out.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the best food I'veSome of the best food I've had in a long time! The wine suggestion was wonderful.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first experienceThis was our first experience with the Slanted Door and it was fabulous! We weren't sure what to order and our waitress was able to suggest some wonderful dishes! Everything is seved family style which makes it really fun to eat with friends. There were 4 of us and we shared all the dishes. The ribs were delicious as was the chicken in clay pot. We also had a delicious white wine recommended by our server which went great with everything. We ate here for lunch, will definitely go back! Would also like to try it for dinner.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you enjoy Asian food withIf you enjoy Asian food with a modern twist you will love this restaurant. We were in San Fransisco for 3 days, it was so good we ate there three times. They have a different menu for lunch and dinner. The service is fantastic. They only recommendation is to make a booking, we went there twice without a booking and we were seated in a different section of the restaurant both times. This area is behind the bar, the atmosphere is not great and the dining decor and ambience is average, however the food easily made up for this. A must try when in San Fran.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best dining spotsOne of the best dining spots in SF.

I was here on business and had heard the buzz about The Slanted Door. I was so happy to get there my last night of the trip. It far exceeded my expectations.

Definite hot spot!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service and waterGreat food, service and water view. Special place for out of town guests4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was AMAZING. HostessFood was AMAZING.
Hostess could have been a bit nicer. We sat in the bar while we waited for our reservation, ended up staying at the bar, never got called for our 1:45 reservation. Turned out fine as the bartender's service was great, but would have been nice if host would have come over and said, "Hey your table is ready, but I see you are eating here at the bar so would you like to stay or take your table?" I've never understood why some waiters/hostesses can be so unkind, maybe they're used to dealing with other unkind people...? Idk, but I am nice and it would be nice to be treated very nicely when I come into a restaurant and drop $100 or so.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMKudos to the Slanted Door!We had a fantastic dining experience here. The food was delicious and the view of the bridge was amazing, but the service went beyond all of my expectations. I was there with two dear, older friends of mine, one of whom was in a wheelchair. They gave us a comfortable table and catered to their every need. And when we left, every staff person jumped to help clear the way for the wheelchair; if you know this restaurant and how crowded it gets on a Friday night, you can just imagine navigating the length of it. I cannot sing their praises enough.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a delight eating atAlways a delight eating at The Slanted Door. Interesting tastes and great service. A bit pricey for the quantity of food you get, but it is a great meal. Menu prices don't look too bad, but servings are small so you need to order several items. That said, for any special or almost-special occasion, this is the place to go.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have loved this restaurantWe have loved this restaurant for years. Whenever we are in San Francisco we make reservations here and are never disappointed. Once again we had a great meal along with great and friendly service. We have recommended the Slanted Door to a lot of people and will continue to do so.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience fromWonderful experience from start to finish.

Otherwise service was great. We were a group of 5 and had never been before so allowed the waiter to pick all our choices and had a great meal - everyone really enjoyed the food and the view! Yellow tail, papaya salad, wood oven roasted fish and the crab glass noodles were the favourites - and the donuts for dessert - yummy!!! Thanks for a great evening.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
