Food was subpar. Ribs dry, noodles flavorless. Several items on the menu were not available. Overall high cost, average quality.

No matter where Slanted Door is located - SF, San Ramon, or Berkeley- the food is sensational from the bbq ribs to the shaking beef to the black cod and more. The cocktails are special, too. Be prepared to open your wallet, though.

Wow! First time here. So great. Our server answered questions and made recommendations about food and wine. It was lovely. Great food. Staff is so knowledgeable about what foods are good together and how to with the spring rolls. The Pork Chops are amazing! And the desserts are incredible - save room!
We will be back

Yellowtail appetizer was ridiculously small portion for $21. The grapefruit salad was flavorless. Service was attentive and thoughtful. Being able to sit outside was awesome.

Great food, great service even though very crowded. What made the meal great, though, was eating outside and still being warm. Great outdoor heaters.

My family and I love it here- - the people, the service and the food are all EXCEPTIONAL. The vibe is perfect for a date night, outing with friends or just with your family. I have 3 young kids and they love coming here; their favorite menu items are the crispy imperial rolls, the claypot chicken and the butterscotch pudding. My favorites are the gau choy gau (wild gulf shrimp and garlic dumplings), shaking beef, crab noodles and the wild black cod - - and, I don’t know what it is, but they have the best jasmine rice! Overall, an extremely well run restaurant. We will keep coming back.

Nothing done in relation to my Open Table note that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday. Waitress brought us our check before asked, and when we asked to see a dessert menu, she informed us that “well, it’s almost 7:30pm.” Our dinner reservation was for 6:30pm and we seated a little early at 6:20pm, so does that mean that there is a 60 minute dining limit?!?! It certainly was not mentioned on Open Table if there is. Waitress also pushed their boujee ‘pineapple spritzer’ on my sons only for us to discover that it was $9 for pineapple juice, seltzer water and mint leaves, but that was par for the course considering all of their menu items are overpriced, including a large order of rice that won’t feed an Asian family of four. Oh and let’s not forget that they now force a 20% service charge on you. Disappointing since our past experiences have been quite nice, but restaurant seems to be slipping or perhaps getting a bit big for their britches. May be a while before we venture back here again, which is a shame given how close we live…sigh.

Slanted Door was great -- nice outdoor table, great service. Nice cocktails (even tweaking one for no alcohol). We had the shrimp -- perfectly cooked with green onions, and the Clay Pot Chicken -- with a side of brown rice. Everything was delicious and took home lots of the chicken for leftovers. It might seem pricey, but you are getting fantastic quality and there was enough to take some home. Looking forward to returning and trying a few other items and some appetizers.

While the food was delicious, but the service was barely there. Not sure if understaffed or simply inattentive. Given the cost, the food does not outweigh the bad service.

Slanted Door is always a favorite. The small plates are fantastic. The jasmine rice is not dry over overcooked. Had the halibut tonight but it was a but too much onion flavor for me. I love the chicken clay pot and shaking beef is a favorite. Finished off the night with the perfect Hong Kong Milk Tea. Will always come back any time.

Wonderful food and exceptional service even though the heaters were Jill not working reliably on a cool evening. The halibut, cellophane noodles, yellowtail, and spring rolls were delicious, perfectly cooked, tastefully flavored, and nicely presented.

I've been meaning to try Slanted Door for a long time and I finally went. Everyone recommended the Shaking Beef...it was good but pricey. I've had better Shaking Beef for much lower price. I do recommend the imperial rolls. Those were really good. Also had the shrimp but it was just OK. Would not order that again. I will go back to try their other menu items.

Pre pandemic this was our “Friday Night Date Night Done Right” restaurant. Wok 5 and 6 were our seats. Great food, one of the beat wine list in the East Bay and a staff beyond compare - knowledgeable, fun, friendly, professional- always. To start our 24th wedding anniversary weekend, I knew we had to come here. Dallas is a gem. She poured a bottle of sparkling water as we sat down. She knew. The team here is a level above most East Bay restaurants - a bit of the city in San Ramon. Love this place.

We've missed dining at the Ferry Building location so we decided to take the drive and head to San Ramon. It's a little too far to go on a regular basis but we'll definitely go again. The food was every bit as good as the original. The space feels a little antiseptic but I think it's mostly because of COVID restrictions where tables are set further away from eachother.

Decided to try this restaurant because I had been to the Slanted Door in San Francisco years ago. It was an experience eating outside (would prefer indoor next time). The flavor of the food was very good especially the caramelized prawns/shrimp.

Very overpriced. And they add 20% gratuity on each bill without telling you , so if you are not reading the bill you end up over tipping . Their food is good but for $30 per plate it is not worth it

It was great to have long time favorites, Slanted Door Spring Rolls and Jicama Grapefruit salad. Tried something new, pork chops and asparagus with mushrooms and Brussels sprouts with cashews. All excellent.
