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.

Consistently good! Food comes to your table hot and delicious ( the hot part is a rarity these days).Service very good in an establishment that is always packed lunch and dinner. Highly recommended if in SF!

Has a great view of the Bay Bridge and especially good to dine as day turns to night and the Bay bridge is lit up. But other than a great waterfront view, the food is ok, service is unfriendly, menu pricey, and not great options for vegetarians. We had appetizers, drinks, and 2 entrees for 3, and the bill was $200...and we were all hungry at end of meal.

The food at Slanted Door is always outstanding; you don’t go there expecting a quiet dining experience. The patrons are friendly and the service is fast, but don’t expect a leisure meal. Still highly recommend.

A wonderful experience for a 84th birthday celebration. The greatest issue was the noise level. However the host bitted us at a table backed by a wall to help alleviate the issue. We are sure that it was helpful. The food was superb and the service flawless. Thank you for a delightful dining experience.

The entire ambiance of the place is amazing and the food is very good. However the service was very disconnected from a good guest experience. Definitely felt as if there was no attention to detail in the service, just a very robotic feeling the entire time. Potentially the staff had too many tables to deal with but it’s not what I expect from a restaurant that comes with a higher price tag. Ive been to other establishments in the area with a similar or even higher price tag and the overall customer service is leagues beyond what they were able to provide.

The food is excellent and so is the service. My only problem with the restaurant is the noise level and the general layout of the dining room. It's a cavernous, hardscape environment with very closely-spaced tables. But the view of the Bay Bridge light installation is great, which must make it a popular destination for tourists. As well as for the many tables of well-paid tech workers . . . It's expensive but the portions are decently sized--we took leftovers home.

Food was ok. I was in town on vacation and was very, very much looking forward to this dinner, but honestly, it was a bit of a let down. Spare ribs were not anything special; shaken beef had some flavor but I had to add quite a bit of lime, sauce and salt/pepper mix. Our scallops were cold and had to be sent back. My mixed drink was very average. The waiter was very attentive and kind. He comp'd our dessert because of the scallop situation, but I was not really looking for that. Hostess was a bit snippy, but they were very busy. I suspect due to the size and volume of the food this restaurant produces daily, the quality suffers somewhat, which is too bad. The view is beautiful, but I'd rather have great food.

After wanting to go here for a long time, this was a real letdown. Food was mediocre at best. Clay pot chicken was bland and chicken was chewy. Scallop dish was cold. Seared tuna was fine but not very interesting. Spring rolls and green papaya salad were good.
