OTD (aka Out the Door - Bush St.) Ratings and Reviews
I've been meaning to try this restaurant for a while & am glad that I did finally. The food was good -- interesting, fresh, pretty, delicious. However, our server was very, very lacking in presence. She seemed to be annoyed that we were asking her for things -- like things we wanted to order to eat at the restaurant where we came to eat. We definitely overordered and had leftovers for 3 of the dishes. We asked for them to go at the end of our meal. We never got them and I only realized that once we were on the Bay Bridge going home.
Oh well. Don't need to go back. Too many other options in the City where food & service are both important.
We have always enjoyed OTD and the wonderful menu & food Charles Phan has put together.
HOWEVER I must note that on this visit the service was below par, the timing of plates of food to our table completely unorganized and erratic, and then it took the servers forever to offer us desert menus, then another 20 minutes before coming back to take our desert order, and then since they had totally elongated and messed up timing they actually had the nerve to ask us to leave because we were over whatever time they had allotted us, and we were flabbergasted. It's too bad...
OTD never fails to live up to expectations. The menu has been revamped since Executive Chef Robert Edwards has come onboard. The vegetarian dishes are a third of the menu and really expand the options. The spring rolls are some of the best you will have in the country. Our squad is partial to the cellophane noodles with crab and the shaking beef. Mix in a side of kale or a seasonal veggie dish and you are sure to have a meal to remember. Daniel runs the front of the house and leads by example. From the servers to the bus staff every aspect of services is excellent. It's a neighborhood gem where everyone is made to feel welcome.
Everything was great. Great service. Great ambience. Great food. All the staff were knowledgeable and passionate; and everyone around us was having a good time. Every recommendation from the staff was spot on. We had a bottle of Precedent (?) French Oak aged Riesling and it was perfect.
Dumplings, pork ribs, fried chicken, beef brisket and the amazing kale. Wonderful.
Please don't dine here, I would hate not to be able to get in again.
Compliments to the Chef and the staff.
Food and service, except for host at door, was exceptional. We wanted a bottle of bubbly to sip while we waited for our table (we arrived early, so the wait was on us, not them) and then carry to the table. The bottle never appeared. He—the host— said it would be “presented” at our table. Why not serve it when we requested it? Tacky!
Three of us had a feast: grapefruit salad, daikon cakes, spring rolls, grilled chicken with rice and egg (brunch menu on Saturday). The only discordant note was the chicken pho, which smelled off because of a too heavy hand with the nuoc mam. We eat the soup often, here and in Vietnam, but had to return this one, which was taken off our bill and graciously replaced with another order of the delicious hot daikon cakes. We come here all the time since we live close by.
This is very casual . The design is elegant but sparse / it is fine for lunch ; too cold and cafeteria looking for a dinner occasion ! The food is fresh : inventive Vietnam cuisine . Great imperial rolls ; yummy salads . Perfect drop in for lunch or a business meeting .the staff is exceptional
So many wonderful things to say about the fantastic attitude from the staff and the food. All high marks there. We were left a bit unattended at time, but also.. not in a huge rush, so it wasn't a problem. Also, there is no sound treatment in there at all. Very loud. BUT.. I'll go back for the wonderful food and great staff.
Fabulous food, friendly staff, great atmosphere! Everything on the menu is so good that it’s hard to make a decision. Great wine and beer selection. John is so knowledgeable about all the menu items that it makes dining such an amazing experience. Can’t wait to go back.
Hadn’t been to OTD in a few years but when looking for a last minute table we returned post/movie. Now I know why there are usually tables. Same menu but every dish I tasted fell flat. (kids enjoyed the fried chicken but I didn’t try it.) and even though half empty the service was meh.
We come here regularly but have noticed that when it's really busy, and certain people are not working, that the place is unorganized and food becomes non-consistent and preparation and presentation is very poor. This is the third time that we have experienced this poor experience. It's very sad and disappointing that management and/or owner does not listen to their regular customers to improve these issues.
