I am a fan of The Slanted Door both for the quality of food and the ambiance. Located in the Ferry Building the east wall is lined with windows looking onto the Bay and Bay Bridge. The oyster and yellow tail are both excellent choices from the raw bar. I am also a fan of the rolls and dumplings. Drinks are well made, price is reasonable.

A restaurant with a great view of the bridge. If you want to have dinner, make a reservation in advance. This place serves contemporary vietnamese food with local ingredients. Most of the dishes are remarkably good: noodles with crab, shaking beef, seared scallops... The service is terrible though, the waiters are super entitled, and doesn't make it better when they are working under pressure at dinnertime.

Delicious shaking beef - it's a must-try. I also had some brussels sprouts, which were not bad but also not the finest entry in the great brussels sprout trend of the past few years. The view's nice, but I think the ferry building location might be a bit of a liability, not an asset, since you're competing for space with a high proportion of business dinners and tourists. Still, worth it for the beef.

Been several times for dinner, lunch and brunch. The menu really resonates with me, fusion Vietnamese, and both locations (Pac Heights and Ferry Bldg) are beautiful. Ofcourse, I'm there for the food not for the view, and I think dinner and lunch is the way to go. It's pricey and pretty good but only worthwhile for a business lunch/dinner. Cellophane crab noodles, raw bar - hamachi were stand outs. They're famous for the shaking beef, but I prefer cubes of meat that are super tender, these ones were hard and a bit crusty on the outside. Other good but standard things: veggie spring rolls (better than the shrimp), trout. Not worth ordering: broccoli, clams (tasted like chlorine or bleach and low quality pork).

This is, hands down, one of my favorite restaurants in the city. To start, the decor and atmosphere in the restaurant is so airy, beautiful and modern. I've tried too many things on this menu to count - the shaking beef, clay pot chicken, spring rolls, jicama and grapefruit salad, etc. etc. All of these have been excellent. The fresh ingredients and presentation are two really notable things that you'll find at Slanted Door and maybe not at other restaurants. This is great place for a nicer dinner in the city with family, friends, or coworkers.

In many years living in San Francisco, Slanted Door has made many memories. From its time in the Mission to the move to the Embarcadero, the quality and atmosphere of this Vietnamese restaurant are really nice. The food is fantastic. The crispy imperial rolls and grass-fed estancia shaking beef will change your world. Slanted Door is less known for 6 other restaurants under its brand.
