Not sure why this restaurant is so lauded, it's overly noisy, the food is good but not great, and the staff/service completely blew off an important request. Suggest trying other spots.

No problem with the food . They were delicious but portions were small. We were four people and ordered 5 from the menu including veg roll appetizer and cost each of us $40 including
tip...we felt it was not worth it because later in the day we were hungry (exchanged notes). I may not return, just expensive for smal portion.

Still great after all these years, the Phan family continues to turn out their classics, but also new twists. And the wine list continues to provide interesting choices that fit with the food.

We were celebrating my daughter's 30th birthday. The View was extraordinary the food was amazing and our server could not have been Kinder. In fact he had not been told it was her birthday and yet he arrived with a wonderful birthday surprise for dessert. I won't tell you and spoil the surprise cuz it's pretty surprising.

I took my mom who was in town for her birthday and when she was away from the table told the waitress it was her bday and if we ordered dessert I'd appreciate a candle or whatever. The waitress said no problem. When we ordered TWO desserts they arrived at the table with nothing whatsoever for her birthday. Very disappointing. You had the chance to make it a special meal and blew the chance. Such a bummer.

Been to Slanted Door multiple times now, and it is equally as tasty and delicious everytime. Some of the best Vietnamese food in SF, and the location is second to none right on the Embarcadero waterfront. Great for dates or for bigger groups. Highly recommend.

The server was nice but not on par with the caliber of a $50 steak. I had to ask for my drinks more than a couple times for each drink. So many more great tasting “fancy” Viet restos around. Try those instead. You pay premium for the view of the bridge, not the food. As a local I don’t want to pay extra to see a bridge I drive on every day

Overall dinner was delicious and we had a great time. We had to catch a ferry and they rushed dessert so we could enjoy the beignets and cotton candy before heading home. My teenagers were very happy. Our only disappointment was our table in the back. I had made reservations about a month earlier for my husband's bday and my daughter leaving for college. I requested a nice table with a view. I know it doesn't always happen, but when we were seated at a table in the back near the private room, I was very disappointed. I mentioned it to the hostess and she was indifferent and said, this is all we have. Our evening didn't quite start with the excitement we all had for the evening, but luckily the meal/dessert were delicious and we left satisfied.

A nice visual experience on the SF Bay waterfront, one you're seated, which may be somewhat of an adventure if our visit was any barometer. There was such a demand for tables, the restaurant's staff didn't seem to want to waste time making their guests welcome. Table service, however, was nice and attentive. The food was well prepared, but for the restaurant's reputation a bit of a shortfall, taking expectations into account. The noise was mess hall loud with a full house, by the way. Anyway, if you haven't been there before, it's worth the trip if you're going to be in the neighborhood.
