The wait was much longer than expected, but the staff was friendly, the Bay and Bay Bridge views against the moonlit sky were amazing (and made the wait easier and less frustrating to take) and the food was terrific. The tabletop cotton candy was a nice and unique touch - recommended!

This place is hugely popular so doesn't need my endorsement, but I'll give it anyway. Plan ahead and get a reservation; even though it is a good-sized place, it is, like I say, hugely popular and it's tough to get in. The food is very well done, order a bunch of small things and share. Don't bother with desserts. Their... More

The food and aromas are great but it´s very busy and crowded, you might not get much elbow room, and its a little loud. If those things are ok the food was great. You defenitely need reservations.

We recently enjoyed lunch at The Slanted Door when we were in San Francisco. The restaurant had been recommended to us by several people and it didn't disappoint. The view is spectacular, the room is contemporary and very sharp. Our server was warm and hospitable. She was helpful in describing a specific dish which assisted my husband in making his... More

Great location and views of the Bay Bridge, especially in the evening. Food was great, but not sure it was worthy of the high prices and small dishes. We were 4 and ordered 5 items, it was enough for a small dinner, tastes for all. Luckily we all weren't that hungry. I'm glad I went, but probably wouldn't go again.

This is an upscale, refined Vietnamese restaraunt in the Ferry Building with a view of Bay Bridge. The food is quite good as well as the service. If you like Vietnamese food with a French flare, this place is for you. This would be a great place for a large party as you can do family style so you can... More

Cannot fault the food or the service. However, for the price tag you may hope for something a bit more intimate/less canteen like. The food was really great but in London you can get great Vietnamese food for literally a fraction of the price of this place. Overall experience was good however.

The Slanted Door is located in the active and busy Ferry Building facing SF Bay. The evening we were there ( a Saturday night) it was active and at capacity but the staff seemed to handle the crowd well. A very unique and interesting menu and our group ordered a variety of items - all very good. In the evening... More

Come to this place to experience a wonderful selection of wines. It is in a lovely pier setting and there are seats outside as well a big restaurant and lounge/bar area. Whilst the wine is well priced, the food is expensive for what you get although it was great quality but then I guess you're paying a premium for the... More
