The food was phenomenal! We had a party of 8 so did family style. It was very pricy but worth it for how great it tasted and the amazing views. The service was also fantastic!
Food was good but extremely overpriced for what it was.
Good food and service but a somewhat overpriced. You are definitely paying for the view!
Love the Slanted Door, it is my go to place to satisfy all kinds of eaters. The quality is excellent and the dishes are very creative. The chef is happy to offer vegetarian or vegan options.
Food was good, but very upset with manager. We did the pre-fixe menu, but 2 other guests showed up later who came just to have a drink. We were charged for them, so we asked to speak to the manager. He came by and rudely said they had sent out enough food for all of us, but that he would change the bill, and then he stormed away without letting us explain!! I was actually willing to compromise with him and pay for just 1 extra person, but he didn't give me the opportunity. I later approached him to discuss how unprofessional this was, and he didn't seem to care. He just obnoxiously said "Sorry." What a shameful experience for a restaurant I used to love.
I hadn’t been to the Slanted Door in several years, and I felt the food was better than ever. The prices are also significantly higher. I used to come and eat st the bar; and I see that it’s still as popular as ever too. We had a table with a view of the bay this time and began with some of SD’s creative cocktails. My friends and I ordered an array of dishes—from the fresh spring rolls (Yumm!) to the shaking beef,p eggplant in curry, and crisp fresh fish. Absolutely delicious and happy to reconnect with this very popular restaurant.
Absolutely delicious and memorable ! The Slanted Door Spring Rolls were amazing. Could have ordered 2 more plates! The Cellophane noodles with crab, Lemongrass Chicken and Bok Choi all were prepared to perfection! We ate every morsel. Wait staff very helpful with recommendations.
One of our favorite spots. But with all the very fine Vietnamese dining throughout the Bay, this place has lost some of its luster. Service is always top rate. Ambience is vibrant, scenic and very SF. But the food no longer knocks your socks off. Don’t get me wrong, the taste and quality have remained great. The value is lacking. Dumplings, stir fries, and springs rolls can be had at any number of places and half the cost. They need to rethink their menu and prices. It’s getting a little too familiar and overrated for my taste.
Great food presentation but flavor was really bland. Service was bad, server forget to our order and has bad attitude.
Very loud and hard to have a conversation, but everything else was phenomenal.
A favorite for many years. Very consistent overall but the service was slow this time. Great view. Wine list is good. Not a bargain but very good to excellent.
The food was good. The atmosphere was great. Service and attention a little slow if you are in a hurry. A bit pricey for my taste. Good for special occasions.
Dessert types were unexpected for primarily Vietnamese restaurant, but exceeded expectations and were worth it!
Vanilla benigne with barely sweet chocolate sauce and kombucha cheesecake. Just sweet enough to finish a long lunch as a share with family.
Underwhelming in every way. I can't understand the hype. I've has better Vietnamese food at my local hole in the wall.
Our server Ginger was great. Made great suggestions. The food was wonderful.
We were really looking forward to trying Slanting Door. Had read and heard good things, and we enjoy Vietnamese/South East Asian food. Nice water front location overlooking Bay Bridge. From there things were a let down. Way too noisy inside, could hardly have a conversation. Service was extremely slow. Crispy Spring rolls were very good. Rest of meal disappointing, clams with bacon broth way too salty. Chicken claypot ok but also super salty and I think it had been reheated in the microwave with some parts so hot that it burnt roof of mouth and others tepid. The side order of green beans with mushrooms arrived virtually cold and flavourless as a result. Seared Scallop dish, although cooked just right and not over done, seemed also to have been sitting a while, was cold and scallops slightly tough by the time it was brought to table.
We didn’t stay for dessert. Left feeling rather disappointed.
Another good lunch at SD
-imperial rolls were very fresh
-cellophane noodles with fresh crab. A must and staple of the menu
-prawns that were prepared I believe in a clay pit. Texture was perfect
-crepes. Really enjoyed the texture and fillings
Only issue was the fact there was a group that had a dog. They held it during the meal leaning over the table. It was not a service dog and pretty sure violated health codes. A turn off for sure at a upscale restaurant.
I think Slanted Door was the place to go ten years ago, but it’s showing its age. Food is good, as is service. Perhaps that’s enough to keep it going. But I was hoping for more, especially at the price they charge for shaking beef. Vietnamese coffee was quite good though.
The ambiance could be improved by a refresh of the interior. In particular, the textured popcorn ceiling looks like something from the 70’s.
Plan on a wait even when you have a reservation. We loitered at the hostess station for 30 minutes before being seated. The food was excellent as always and the service strong, especially in light of the many tables. It's a loud restaurant so if you want to have a real conversation, go early or late when the deafening roar is more tolerable.
Great view and a lively atmosphere but the food is nothing special.
Buena comida pero mucho tiempo entre un platillo y el otro.
This used to be one of our favorites, but the quality of the food has slipped. Everything we had was pretty tasteless. Very disappointing!
Whole red snapper was exceptional. Great presentation, moist and succulent. Best whole fish I have ever had!
Reception/Hosts could dial down the attitude
Food and Service were great otherwise!
We knew it was going to be noisy and ..... it was! Other than that highly recommend! Food was great!
Loud and active metropolitan atmosphere with beautiful views of the Bay Bridge, excellent food, and great service. Make a reservation!!
We know people have bad days - unfortunate our server was...didn’t go well while entertaining clients. Won’t take clients back
The waitress provided good service, but beverages didn’t show up couple of times until we asked about them. It seemed the busboys were not paying attention.
I have been eating here for several years and been a fan , last twice has been poor service and on Monday night with friends from Paris the host was terrible and when I left to get my bag was treated like I was an inconvenience, so will be staying away...... shame!
Kitchen very slow on 10/8/19. Food arrived at the table hap-hazard. Housekeeping and cleanliness was not the greatest. Restaurant's success seems to be more a result of hype than actual fine dining which it lacks.
fabulous food and VERY noisy. Too much noise for business lunch.
Second time dining here and it was just as good as it was two years ago. Exceptional food, awesome view, friendly staff and genuinely one of the best meals we’ve had in SF.
Perfect for a family special occasion or date night.
The location and ambiance are incredible. Friendly staff and attentive servers.
Unfortunately however, the food is entirely underwhelming for the price point.
$42 dollars before tax and tip for a rather small portion of shakey beef?
$33 before tax and tip for a plate of past their prime shrimp stir fried with onions?
Food was excellent. The Server explained wht the dishes are about. She suggesed how to serve them. Service was fantastic.
Tourist Just visiting the city
Our server was excellent and very accomodating. The dissatisfaction was with the front desk or the policy I was told. I cant get a table unless all parties are there. I told her I have a disabled person who walks slow and that I need a table so they can sit. I had to ask again recond time so eventually, the lady allowed me to sit before the entire party arrived when I told her I will order already because I'm rushing for an event. She placed us at the farthest table in the restaurant so the disabled party had to walk all the way there.
We had an excellent meal, good service and drinks. The Shaking beef and clay pot chicken have become staples when we go to Slanted Door. The Imperial rolls were the smallest I've ever seen! We ate them anyway and didn't complain, they were delicious.
Slanted Door doesn’t disappoint. The menu has something for everyone. The pork belly appetizer is a must have and the day boat scallops are delicious. Excellent cocktails.
The view is spectacular. Bay Bridge, ferry terminal and we were treated to a Fleet Week fireworks show that rivaled any Fourth of July or New Year we’ve spent in San Francisco.
It’s a loud dining room. Very vibrant and I’ve never seen it less than 90% occupied, even at the earliest or latest seatings.
The wine list is weak, should include more regional offerings (especially CA). The food is always good and creative but not over the top great. On a Saturday night manically busy and noisy. Certainly not the place to enjoy a calm and calculated “foodie experience” with Asian or Asian fusion in mind. And, by any standard not a good value for the cost.
Brilliant evening, Food was great, excellent service and a view over the Bay , with a fire work display thrown in. Try and get a booth as they face the waterfront.
