Still got it after all these years. I actively crave the crab cellophane noodles.

Chef Charles Phan competed against Iron Chef Cat Cora in season 7 of Iron Chef America.

If you can't get a reservation at this wildly popular Vietnamese hotspot in the Ferry Building, don't despair--the bar and lounge are first come, first serve. Perennial favorites include the signature Slanted Door spring rolls, grapefruit jicama salad & the spare ribs. Great cocktails!

Overhyped – Did not hold our reservation even thoough we were present 12 minutes before our time. Seated others and seated others before us...we waited 35 minutes after our reservation for our table. Yikes...loud, crowded tables, small portions, good eating, but think other restaurants offer meals just as good for less and bigger protions. Sorry! But if being seen were other are being seen...this is the place for you.

Yummo – Loved it. Not only the food, but the service was wonderful. Staff were at your table to clear plates after clean after every serving. The hot Vietnamese Coffee was wonderful. I've never had it brew at the table.

The place is beautifully decorated and I felt very relaxed and comfortable. Every seat, except those facing the bar, have a view of the bay. The walls in the seating area are walls of windows.

I can't wait for my next trip to SF. I love the city.

Fresh seafood Vietnamese style, great decor and ambiance – Being Vietnamese I will say this, the food is a little over rated for the price. You can get the same or better elsewhere. What makes up for it is the fresh seafood and the nice ambiance! It makes it so much worth it. Don't forget to make reservations! It is always booked and is the number one overbooked restaurant on opentable dot c o m. It's also nice it's on the pier.

Best Food I've had since my move from LA – The Spring roles are delicious, the shrimp noodles are cooked perfectly, the view, of course, exquisite. I went on a Sunday afternoon and the service was great. I loved everything about The Slanted Door and I'm very excited to find my new favorite place to have lunch, dinner and drinks.

The Slanted Door – WORST SERVICE I'VE EVER HAD from the minute I made the reservation to the minute I walked out the door. Staff is slow, arrogrant and inefficient!!!!! The food was adequate but nothing special. Not only do I NOT recommend it, I wouldn't go back if you paid me to eat there! When I go out for a "nice" lunch or dinner I expect to be treated as a guest, not as if they are doing me a favor by letting me eat there!!!!

Short Ribs – It was the BEST meal we had during our trip in SFO. I made an earliest reservation but the restaurant was already packed! Ribs/ Ribs/ Ribs... every table I can see. we ordered 2 appetizers, ribs and dungeness crab. portions were almost like a meal for 2. ribs was so tender and juicy but the sauce a bit on salty side, crab was cook perfect, still a bit translucent. drink was fantastic too... Real friendly services, food comes quick. This is a keeper, I would love to come back and try everything!!!!

HIGHLY OVERPRICED AND BLAAAH FOOD – We have heard so much great reviews about Slanted Door and we were very excited to try this restaurant, however this restaurant did not live up to the hype. To preface this review, our home base is in Honolulu and Boston- 2 cities with excellent Asian cuisine. Slanted door is supposedly "fine Vietnamese food", however at best, the food tasted like your average Chinese fare. Nothing spectacular, no wow factor, just mediocre. I have eaten Chinese food from stands off the side of the road that were tastier than the food served here. On a positive note, however, the interior is beautiful- sleek and modern. Plus, there is a great view of the waterfront as well. The service was slow, but our waitress was very friendly and helpful.The bill was overpriced in my opinion for lunch- 2 people for 3 dishes at $70. I am glad that we got to try this place since we have heard so many great things about it, but we will not be returning here again or recommending it to friends.
