The Slanted Door offers diners a gourmet experience where the food on the plate looks as beautiful as the views of the Golden Gate Bridge from every table.

Very good dinner, highly recommended.👍
7 Guests Fixed menu; more food than we imagined! Celebrated two birthdays during lunchtime. Great round table & Jessica was superb server
This was our second time going and each was for a birthday. Each time the service food and service has been great! Recommend it for anyone who is a foodie and loves to explore different food options.
Waiter was outwardly unfriendly and rude.
Terrific - as always. The food, the service and the view are a perfect A+!
The food was quite good but on the pricier side (we were mentally prepared so it was fine).
Three of us dined with you on Sunday and every bite we ate was more delicious than the one before. Unbelievably great food. The waiter was wonderful, the wait wasn't long for our food and we loved the complete experience. Thank you, Jeannie M
One of the best lunches we’ve had in San Francisco.
Great ambience and service. Food was overpriced for the value. Previously the same dishes tasted better. Not sure if it is change in chefs or ingredients.
Waitress too persistant and in a hurry for us to finish fast
Always try to make it here when I am in San Francisco. It has a festive atmosphere and the food is creative and delicious. The fact that a Vietnamese restaurant is as energetic and busy as this says a lot about the food and the experience. It is consistently good - and always fun. The views of the Bay Bridge, the Bay and the ferries add to the festive nature of the place. Great place for business and dates. I love Slanted Door.
Always excellent every time. A great wine list also.
It was a fabulous dining experience. I have been wanting to eat there for a number of years every time I visited San Francisco. Happy I finally got the opportunity!
Beautiful table overloking bridge lights at night. Promtly seated at reservation time by courteous amiable rceptionist. Waiter inept with gluten free explanations/food modifications offered even though resaurant chosen because of its ability to do gf, and this requirement was noted on reservation. Quick trip to friendly receptionst and prompt response by manager put things right. Food was scrumptious and easily modifed for gf without any loss of flavor. Would go again but deal immediately w manager next time.
Very expensive very noisy decidedly mediocre food
The place was noisy but it did not stop us from enjoying the view, our company, and the
delicious food which was delivered promptly and hot!
Although the food was tasty, we wonder if there's a new chef. The Imperial Rolls and chicken dish we ordered because we'd liked them so much before were much spicier than we remembered.
We had a wonderful lunch. The food was fresh and vibrant. You don't want to miss this yummy restaurant!!
Our food was a culinary experience 😍😎
This restaurant came so highly recommended that I was suspect - but- no- it was truly a fabulous dining experience at every level. Kelly's (our server) help, was a great indication of the level of quality, intelligence and care that this restaurant showcased. She was knowledgeable about the deep and offbeat wine list and helpful about choosing foods to create a balanced meal for the group I was part of- all well travelled, sophisticated eaters, some of whom have regularly eaten their way through Vietnam and others who are professional, trained chefs. The lovely view and fancy space gave us worry again that the food would be watered down for american palates in a way that so many places do. It was not. The dishes felt and tasted authentic yet creative at the same time. This is neither homey food nor hootie- tootie chic cuisine for chic's sake. The food had the care and skill of a chef. The caramel chicken, a mark of a great Vietnamese cook, was succulent and well balanced and I cant wait to go back sample the shrimp version. It was also a generous portion. The steamed shrimp dumplings (wonderfully and fearlessly gelatinous) and sauteed fresh green garlic versions are an absolute musts. The veggies and seafood were handled with aplumb- tender crisp and flavor rich and most are well spiced, and nothing was overly hot for no reason. The noodle dish, alas, has little crab, but what there was, was delish, but the proteins and veggies were the best. The cauliflower and romescu was memorable. You can find dishes that are also a bit whimsical, and a bit showy, like the cotton candy dessert and some of the old world drinks.
The view of the bay bridge was extraordinary and sitting in a booth also allowed us to see the professional kitchen at work. Well seasoned and smart, this meal,and this restaurant, even in a city full of good and very good meal, stands amongst the very best. This is what a genuinely top of line chef and thoughtful staff can do. Go.
Every dish was beautifully presented. Great venue for out of town visitors. We had a great waiter who really read our table well. We had a great time. Most of the food was very good, especially the vegetarian fried rolls, the crab cellophane noodles, and the scallops. Was a bit disappointed in the shaking beef (it's tough -- I expected melt-in-your-mouth) and then suddenly remembered I had been disappointed in the beef the last time I ate here. So I'll be back again and definitely will skip the beef from now on.
Great overall! The food, service, ambience,!!’
Loved the location. Food was on point.
Visiting from our home Island Curacao for only a few days, we were lucky to have booked Slanted Door well in advance. This dinner was an experience we will remember!!
Ya know, I love Slanted Door, always have, but things have changed...
Sure their drinks are expensive but extremely well made. Much care is involved in the makings. Their awesome, yes even at $14.
Food...?Stick with their Asian menu items. Meat? Forget it. Used to be much better then it is now. Don't know why, but its certainly not Prime grade. I used to love their pork spareribs, not anymore. I tried the filet Mignon... not good. Seriously, I know good filet mignon, very disappointing.
Yes I'll go back, for my favorite drinks, and my favorite rolls and salads.
Great Food and service. Felt a little rushed though as all four of our appetizers came out at the same time. Large Bridge and Tunnel crowd.
3rd time here and it lived up to expectations. Fabulous food in a superb setting.
Debbie is amazing. Such or fan of this place
First time at Slanted Door for dinner in a while and definitely more crowded than lunch, but service and food never disappoint, even with a wide variety of food interests with a party of 6.
Good get together with friends from England. Enjoyed the service, the food, and the wine. View of the Bay Bridge at night was very nice.
Love. This restaurant! Great meeting place for friends fr 3 counties. Easy access to public transportation, ferry BART etc.
The place looks and feels rundown. The bathrooms are really unkept and rundown. The food was tasty but felt rushed or sloppy give the high price. Our waitress was nice but stretched way to thin, so not very attentive.
Portions are just too big
We enjoyed our visit to the slanted door. Cocktails and appetizers were excellent. Mains were not as good. Ambiance is nice, gorgeous view over the water, but volume was pretty loud so it was harder to talk with our group.
Wait staff standoffish, food good, nothing to write home about or recommend to friends. Presentation of food good, hardly memorable.
We've been to The Slanted Door several times and it's always been quite stellar. Unfortunately, we must have chosen and "off-night" to take our european friends to dine there. The crispy rolls (shrimp & pork) were extremely good, but the ribs were a little tough and just a bit difficult to get off the bone. The cellophane noodles with dungeness crab was actually a little bland and did not taste very strongly of crab. The Shaking Beef was beautifully prepared and seasoned, but the beef was tough. The desserts were impeccable as always. I didn't bring anything up to the waitstaff because I didn't want to spoil the mood of reuniting with our friends. We're certainly open to trying it again. We were just a bit disappointed that evening
Great night for goodbye to friends, leaving for home in Arizona. We had fun and the food was great.
Very fine menu with wonderful drink pairings. Awesome setting and it is a experience to eat at Slanted Door
