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.

Server was not knowledgeable of Asian cuisine, though was able to answer inquiries about a menu that was vague and ultimately inaccurate in details. Pedestrian food for the novice who has not been exposed to Vietnamese cuisine and wishes to overspend exploring 'exotic' dishes in a noisy setting with fruity drinks and a view.

I have loved this restaurant for 10-15 years, but this time the portions seemed smaller than ever and the prices higher than ever. The value just wasn't there. For example, the shaking beef was $43 for six small pieces of meat, two of which were mostly fat.

Slanted Door is a fantastic place with great food. The only challenge was that we only got seated at 8:25pm for our 8 pm reservation. That is completely unacceptable for a high end place like Slanted. Naomi was fantastic in her service and our sommelier recommended an excellent wine but the front desk was awful and disappointing.

Everything was fine except the price for the rice paper wraps. I thought $15.00 was overpriced for two rolls cut into 6 pieces for an appetizer. I now have learned to make them myself!

Simply the greatest food available. Although the dishes use Asian herbs, spices, and ingredients it surpasses geographic limitations on the meals and the menu. Too tempting to over order and not be able to finish the meal at the restaurant
Restaurant was so full at 5:30 first seating that background noise level was a little high to make it totally comfortable.
Prices high but food totally worth it as to value
Clearly one of the TOP restaurants in SF and California

This was by far the pinnacle of my dining experiences in San Francisco. Even though every dining experience was incredible this was the best. I highly recommend the clay pot chicken, and blue lake green beans. Be adventurous and try out one of the cocktails as they are amazing as well!

Delicious! Second time here and it was as good as we remembered. Ordered family style combination of apps and entrees- spare ribs, spring rolls, dumplings, rib eye, noodles and chicken stir fry. Everything was delicious. Don't miss the cotton candy for dessert! And the jasmine tea was a delight as it "bloomed" in the glass. The views are incredible. Service was courteous and helpful. Loved it!

Standard of food has dropped tremendously.
Special spring roll was obviously pre-made and very stale.
Shaking beef was definitely huge disappointment.
Cellophane noodle with crab did not even look appealing even though it tasted ok.
Pity.
Have been going there for past nine years.

Been here many times over the years. Love the food. I don’t usually like Asian food because it’s heavy on sauces and garlic, spices. But this is exceptional in that the flavors are delicate. I was however very disappointed with the green beans in black bean sauce because the blue beans were old and stale and rough. Not fresh. Noodle and crab dish was sparse on crab and not very tasty. Overall I do like to come here when in the city.
