Don't miss the shaking beef

The food is great, the service attentive, and the view is nice, too. Some people are unhappy with the unisex restrooms (and the attendant with tip jar), but really, that should be overlooked. A great option for a meal if you the Ferry Building is within walking distance of your day's plans. Don't... read more

Interesting, tasty food at a wonderful location. I always enjoy eating there - definitely a good option for lunch or dinner if you are visiting San Francisco.

On our last visit to the city by the bay, I didn't think we could possibly get in here only a week out, but we used Open Table and were able to secure a Saturday night table. We had the pork, duck breast and clay pot chicken at our table and each one was better than the next. Sometimes it... More

We were pleased we had booked in advance for the Slanted Door as it was extremely busy when we visited on a Monday night. The place has an upbeat vibe, with a great location overlooking the bay and excellent service. We ordered a number of dishes - spring rolls, gau choy gow, duck breast, seared ahi tuna and broccoli -... More

The Slanted Door, located on the Embarcadero at the Ferry Building, is truly one of the better Vietnamese restaurants in San Francisco. The menu is broad and the food is extremely fresh. It is a bit pricy, but worth every pennly.

Wow food with outstanding location. They can be crowded so ask for outside seating if you are prepared for the weather. Everything we have tried on numerous visits is outstanding. Read other reviews to find some specific recommendations. We just like it all. Interesting wine menu that pairs nicely with the food. Not cheap, but good value considering their one... More

This was my 4th dinner at the Slanted Door and each time I am amazed at the consistant delicious choices made for sharing. I was at the 7 pm seating with a group of 6. The place is open and minimalist in style with expansive windows looking toward Oakland and the ferry dock. The cocktails are varied and exotic and... More

This is a restaurant that never disappoints. I've never had a bad meal or dish here. Always crowded, make your reservations well in advance. For such a popular restaurant, the servers and wait staff are incredibly personable and attentive. Save your appetite b/c you'll need it. The food is meant for sharing which is the greatest way to eat a... More

We enjoyed our meal at this restaurant last Saturday. I had been trying to get a reservation for about the last five years. At last, I had two months' notice before our trip, so I made a reservation. We had Crispy Imperial Rolls, Spare ribs, Shaking Beef, some kind of shrimp, Jicama Salad and Cellophane Noodles with Crab. I had... More
