The food at the Slanted door will not disappoint. It is family style which allows you to try everything. The location is bar none and the ability to enjoy the light at night on the Bay Bridge is perfect. Some of the best food in...More

Reservations are apparently a hot commodity even for a 5:30 pm seating, so we were lucky we managed to get one tonight. The location is terrific, watching the ferries come and go. The place was packed by 6 pm and a queue had already started...More

Dumplings to share in the middle and rolls were very good. However the soups were not. Lemongrass chicken is nice. Service is nice. As a whole the restaurant might be a little overrated.

The good: the red cabbage of jicama salad was outstanding, and the cellophane noodles with crab was very good (the noodles carried the crab taste very well). The wait staff was very attentive. Not-so-good: The scrambled eggs with scallops consisted of beautifully prepared eggs but...More

Slanted Door doesn't have a Slanted Door but the food and service are straight out great. All the reviews that say it's must are not wrong. Slanted door spring rolls alone are worth the trip as you'll eat 'em wrapped in lettuce akin to Vietnamese...More

This used to be a fantastic restaurant perfect for a great night out or special occasion. The food has fallen dramatically resulting in passable food on par with a wide range of restaurants. The service is disappointing for any restaurant and more so for one...More

If you show up around 5:00 before they open at 5;30pm, they take in walk-ins, but it does get pretty crowded.
