Always love this place. Never disappoints.
Delicious food and cocktails. Excellent service. Not only was food amazing, it looked beautiful. Only downside is a bit noisy for a business or intimate dinner. Nonetheless we were both glad to go
Great views if you have one. Food was very good but expensive.
Food is always amazing and service is top notch. Can count on it being packed and noise level can be challenging to hear if you are with more than 4 people.
The food is very good but the prices are excessive for the serving size. $16 for two shrimp dumplings? They were large but still.... We went on a rainy Wednesday night and the noise level made conversation impossible. The place was packed so it is obviously very popular. I guess the prices reflect the location more than anything else. If so, go for lunch so you can enjoy the view. Service was friendly but we had to wave the waiter over twice for wine. It was never there when the courses were delivered (by someone else).
8pm reservation and wasn’t seated until 8:30. Food was good but overpriced.
Slanted Door is my go-to-place in San Francisco and I have been going there every time I go back to the city. The food is always good but I feel that they need to start adding a few new dishes to their repertoire as it's been the same menu for years.
waitress was extremely rude and beware to anyone with fish allergies since fish is in all their food
I didn't know what to expect as this was our first time, and I was pleasantly surprised. We just ordered a couple of apps to share (the grapefruit, cabbage salad & the crispy spring rolls). Both dishes were very tasty - the salad was amazing. I wish they didn't use canola oil to cook everything in, but rather an avocado or olive oil, but other than that it was nice. Great service too.
Go there every year when in town and never disappointed
While it’s a beautiful spot overlooking the Bay Bridge, the food is average. I remember absolutely loving it when it first opened but now the menu seems tired and the food doesn’t live up to the description. The flavors are lacking in depth and seemed very average to me. We primarily made vegetarian choices (except for the scallops which were delicious) so perhaps that’s not their forte? However, this is the Bay Area and the restaurant is California-Vietnamese so you’d think decent vegetarian options would be important.
Also, it’s very loud. So sorry, Slanted Door, you have become a tourist trap.
I rarely do these reviews, but the service at Slanted Door was awful. There were great amounts of time between when our waiter stopped by, meaning we were there for over 2 hours unnecessarily. I even saw him in the kitchen area putting on his coat and hat, meaning he LEFT before our meal was over, without even stopping by to explain that his shift was over. (I guess?) Such a frustrating experience from a fine dining restaurant.
Great place & great food! For the foodie! Solid & above average wine list.
Meeting an old friend
Nice food and great for sharing. A nice wine balanced in price and overall good experience even though it was a late table
My husband and I went for our anniversary while visiting San Francisco. We had been told by multiple people that we should try this restaurant. The restaurant has. Great vibe. The tables are very close together, it almost felt like we were eating with the tables on either side of us. The food was excellent! We ordered the imperial spring rolls, the glass noodles and chicken hot pot. Each dish we ordered was better then that last. Excellent experience.
Food is delicious.
Service is not good. Hard to get someone give me water. I drink my own bottle of water.
Food is always great here. A bit disappointed to have to wait 20 minutes past our reservation time but it was very busy. Noise level was pretty high the first half of the meal but lessened as it got later and the bar thinned out. View I hard to beat as well. Service was a bit spotty which I had never experienced here before.
Overall great food in a beautiful space. Reason it is crowded.
The food was good but way too overpriced
Clay pot chicken was amazing! All of the rolls are excellent and the celebration cake is a must have...includes cotton candy!
Food is excellent
Enjoyed the meal, the view and place.
The service was not very good, waiter was efficient but not kind.
The restrooms and place to wash hands should be better cleaned
The quality of the food had declined. Menu lacked previously popular items.
Tuesday dinner (8 p.m.) reservation. Arrived early. Seated a bit after 8:20. Restaurant was so loud so as to be painful, with conversation virtually impossible. Slow service. Not particularly attentive. Impersonal. Bad advice about amount of food to order, leading to overspending on our part and wasted food. Unimaginative and bland dishes. Cramped seating, leading to being bumped by wait staff at least four times, and almost falling while trying to get out from behind the table. Very expensive/ poor value for the money. Such an inconceivable letdown for a restaurant that is a San Francisco institution.
Fabulous food and service
The food is outstanding, and sitting at a window seat gives a fun view. I went here a few years ago, when it was "doscovered" and it was a bit pricey and too many "beautiful people". Now, it has settled down a bit and is terrific.
Came here for a family brunch. Met/exceeded expectations with its excellent homestyle food, a little dressed up. Ambiance (room lit by minimal indoor lighting + sunlight peeking through grey skies/clouds) and homestyle family style plating/servingware made it perfect for the rainy day we ventured out in to get to the Ferry Building. Warm and efficient service + Hong Kong Milk Tea split 4 ways were icing on the cake to a great meal. Pricey for sure, but was not sorry to have made the trip and spent the $.
In the past I have loved this restaurant but sadly it is simply not the same at all. Poor service, unfilled water, slow to respond at every level including drink orders. Wait staff wasn’t even very friendly. Food too, has lost it’s fine quality. I’m so very disappointed. We will be looking for new birthday traditions.
National championship game weekend
I wanted to try this place for the longest time. We had the stir fry chicken, coconut pork belly, brussel sprouts with chinese sausage and dungeness crab with noodles.
Service was good but not nothing to dive for. Our server made a mistake about our order so we had to wait another 10mins to receive our main entrees. We should have at least got a free cocktail of some sort for waiting a little longer than usual.
Food portions were great but for the price you pay, a little overpriced for it. I guess you are paying for the location. I do admit the coconut pork belly and dungeness crab was good. The brussel sprouts with chinese sausage was mediocre at best and the sprouts were a bit undercooked. It is such an ordinary dish for the price you are paying. The stir fry chicken was bountiful but the mixture of chinese dates and some sort of nuts made it taste weird.
Now that I have checked this place out, I probably will not eat there for awhile due to the price you are paying for such ordinary dishes.
Food was tasty and creative. Enjoyed the rice paper rolls, the clay pot chicken, the bok choy and the Toblerone ice cream was outstandingly delicious. The 6 oysters were too expensive as they were very small. The service was very good. I like the online booking and the fact the restaurant takes late night bookings. Overall an enjoyable experience.
This has become our holiday tradition. We love the food, view and time with friends.
We were underwhelmed by every dish- it had the generic blandness characteristic of a place that caters more to the tourist than the foodie.
When you combine that with the pricing more in line with a restaurant that would truly deliver a quality experience-of which there are many in SF- the experience was disappointing. The place has now become such a destination that it is getting by as a "scene" rather than a restaurant. It has as much to do with authentic Vietnamese food as PF Changs has to do with real Szechuan. I guess this is what happens when you get big and have to compromise quality to handle volume.
We were not wowed by the food and had at least five different dishes yet I have been there before and have thoroughly enjoyed it. None of he dishes wowed and they were quite bland. We may not go back but for the amazing bar, overall atmosphere and view. It was definitely a packed house which is great, as we love a lively restaurant! However for dining at 6:15pm, our waiter got very busy quickly and forgot about us often. I would have ordered a second drink but he never came back during the main course so I waited until dessert course. We are very easy going people but it was disappointing. Thank you all the same
It was awesome. Very friendly place with great food
This is such an amazing restaurant and always the highlight of our San Francisco visits. I could not recommend it more highly!
I went with two former colleagues that have never been. You now have two new lifelong customers!
Delicious food with a beautiful view. Service was excellent.
