My husband and I love OTD, for outstanding quality in every category. In fact, every time we visit San Francisco, it's at the top of our places to alway return to for a great meal. The quality of the fresh, seasonal foods is obvious, and it's traditional yet modern. We also love it's big sister restaurant , the Slanted Door.

The dishes are phenomenal- a true culinary treat! I just wish I could hear my guest sitting across the table from me- with all hard surfaces, concrete, wood, metal, the noise gets crazy, fast. I'm not even old- but would likely order takeout rather than scream at my friends across the table. Sad.

The food and service were terrific. The atmosphere is clean and modern. The menu is not vast but everything on it is cooked to perfection. I really enjoyed the black cod. It's a nice place if you're in the neighborhood.

Great spot with a full wine list as well as other beverage options. We had the Hue Dumplings which were delicious, although each dumpling is a bit smaller than average and you are served 5 of them so it's full of flavor but won't fill you up. We then also had the Hodo Soy Tofu dish which comes with two different versions of tofu and went wonderfully with the lemongrass and mushrooms. Service was quick and attentive and the place has a fun and energetic vibe. It can get a bit loud with all the tables full so hearing each other was tough at times, but way worth it for the good food and happy vibe!

The food is consistently very good. We ordered about 5 different dishes and all were well prepared. The noise level was highre than I like it to be, but not as noisy as most very popular restaurants in town.

I NEVER miss a chance to eat here when in San Francisco. Hue dumplings spare ribs and green papaya salad are absolutely ‘worth eating’. Our server was very patient as we kept ordering additional dishes with every taste. As expected never disappoints

Bug in food
Small portion for a couple plates
Lost the love that slanted door gives in every category.
Pricy for the small portions of average food.

Expected more from this restaurant based on the reviews. Ordered the ribs (very mediocrely done, meat was tough versus falling off the bone, sauce strewn over versus marinated), crab noodles (again rather mediocre) and Swiss chard (looked like it was amateurishly home cooked and tasted as such as well).

Best food EVER! Service is top-notch too. Open and airy with a view of the kitchen. Will be back time and time again. I prefer lunch to dinner items. Their buns and rice dishes are incredible.

First trip to OTD-Bush St, but the food was, as it is at the other sites, superb. Our server took good care of us, and the wine list was really fine. Great spot for refined Vietnamese cooking. Only compaint is the acoustics--OTB Bush is quite loud. But go...

The Pho wasn't outstanding. Papaya salad was great, as usual. They were out of the two special teas that were on the menu and that the waiter recommended....at 12:30 in the afternoon? The restaurant was half empty for Saturday lunch, which is unusual.

Flavors are wow, subtle at first but then come alive. Perfectly cooked meat, fish, vegetables. The desserts will surprise you. So good, it's irresistible. Got to come back again.
