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.

We used to frequent this venerable restaurant because it had fabulous food, reasonable prices and a killer view. Now, portions are pitiful, prices are out of control ($43 for 6 small chunks of shaken beef?), and the waiter cleaned the table with his hand while placing a sharp knife pointed at our guest. Still, enjoyed our old favorites, but definitely not worth it. Sigh...

James our server was amazing. Had one issue with the steak being over cooked but they took It off the check without any question. I am a little upset in the fact that we used Opentable to book and in the notes stated we were celebrating an engagement. At no time did any one really take the time to acknowledge the special occasion. The food was great. The service amazing but wether or not I would personally go back is up in the air. I would highly recommend to others but for me I think they really missed an opportunity. What’s the point on putting comments if no one does anything with the information.

The service was so mediocre. Food has declined from a year ago when I last visited. The nice only thing they have going for them is the LOCATION.

The service has usually been great in the past years but this time it was pretty rough. It took about 20 minutes to get a menu and the desert menu was worse. It took 25 min just to the get desert menu and another 20 min to get the desert. It was just an ok night. And usually it is a wonderful experience. A little bit of a let down.

We had high hope for this restaurant, however very disappointed, as we didn’t get the value for money: I ordered grilled rainbow trout, it was half cooked, the middle was completely raw - I don’t want to get sick! My son ordered a vegetarian noodle dish, beside spicy oil and two or three pieces of tofu skin, probably cost about $1 to make, at $18, without any nustrition value, are they joking? The appetizer, crispy veggige spring rolls was so small, again two pieces of spring rolls for $18? Overall we spent $150, we were not full and was not wowed. We will never go back. The Vietnamese Restaurant in my neighborhood would cost half but much more tasty and satisfying.

We have come here every time we have been in SF over the past 10 years and continue to love it as a truly top culinary experience! The only criticism is the noise level, which is likely due to the space, most of which is concrete. Good for a lively atmosphere, not good for conversation. Fantastic food and service!

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.
