The Slanted Door offers diners a gourmet experience where the food on the plate looks as beautiful as the views of the Bay Bridge and the Bay Lights in the evening from every table. Charles Phan, the executive chef, goes to the root of the dishes to represent the food authentically with a modern twist. The Slanted Door offers lunch and dinner menus with a variety of appetizers, palate cleansers and main dishes.



The meals consist of organic elements including grass-fed beef and pasture-raised, cage-free chickens. Local seafood options include wild Gulf shrimp, spicy Monterey squid and seared Ahi tuna, or visitors can take advantage of the raw seafood bar. Those looking for a vegetarian or vegan menu will find plenty of options available. The Slanted Door offers a family-style menu and a wide selection of desserts with an extensive bar menu to wash it all down.

As always, amazing food and gorgeous views of the light show on the Bay Bridge. Cellophane noodles with Dungeness crab were delicious. Highly recommend!

Food and drinks were great but service was not excellent. The servers made 2 separate drink errors and also forgot 2 drinks we asked them to order! You were busy that night but I’m sure you’re always busy, because the food is so good. We were impressed, however, that the bartender knew how to make a great Pisco sour!

Spectacular dinner. The food was beyond delicious. We brought a wine that we had bought on our Napa portion of the trip. Will be a definitive come again spot.

The service is excellent and the foods we ordered tasted great. The shaking beef is tender though it's on the high price; it that why it's called shaking? LOL. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to my friends and might bring my family as well.

Food was honestly not impressive. Everything was very sweet and could taste that the chef put a ton or sugar in the dishes.

Drinks were also unmentionable. Most of them were high in sugar.

Our server was not that welcoming. She gave no recommendations and didn’t seem to care.

Overall, a highly disappointing experience.

The service lacks warmth, the room is too loud and busy, and the employees seem vaguely bored and haughty. Nice that they have a coat check though, and the food is good if no longer brilliant.

What an awesome experience! The food is fantastic, the service in on point, the ambiance is fun and lively, and the views of the Bay Bridge and the bay itself are killer! Yes, this place is pricey (probably $100 per person if you get drinks, appetizers, full entrees, dessert, and tip about 20%) but you get the total package so it's worth it!

The food is nothing close to what it used to be; it's still beautifully presented, but the flavors are neither bright nor interesting. This is a restaurant that is resting on past laurels and hype. Don't go.

I went with some Vietnamese people. I’d heard so much about it that we were excited. I’d say that everything was ok. Nothing too good or bad. The whole fish was tasty but perhaps not fresh. Boo Choi was very good. Cocktails good. The two complaints I had are that the ribs, which were Chinese influenced, were tough—maybe they were older or over cooked; and our waiter disappeared for long periods of time and we were a party of 6. She maybe came 2x to table over the entire dining period. Anyway, the main attraction is the view.

The food and cocktails never disappoint at this longstanding favorite of ours, having "discovered" when it was on Valencia street so many years ago now. The cocktails are amazing. Our out of town guests loved it all. I just wish that the pricing was a tad less than it is....so it would seem better value. The service was generally attentive without being overbearing; I rated it lower because of a mix-up in the payment that I had gone to some length to arrange to my credit card in advance.

We love coming to the Slanted Door. Our food was excellent, except for the shrimp dish we ordered as one of our mains. The flavor was great, but sad to say, the shrimp was dry, tough, and overcooked. The first dish we had with shrimp was excellent. I should have, but didn't bring this to the attention of our server.
