Description & Atmosphere
The Slanted Door is one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco. Its Olle Lundberg-designed interior is trendy, stylish, light and airy — and Charles Phan's food is extraordinary.

Considered by many to serve the BEST Vietnamese food in the country, Chef-owner Charles Phan has catered to a number of celebrity guests, including rocker Mick Jagger, Sarah Jessica Parker and President Clinton.

Slanted Door Vietnamese restaurant, Marketplace, Ferry Building, San Francisco

Located in the north-east corner
of the Ferry Building Marketplace, its window-lined dining room offers fabulous views of San Francisco Bay. It's no wonder that the Slanted Door is a popular locale with tourists and locals alike.

The spacious restaurant seats 150 people in the dining room and 20 at the bar.

Give your tastebuds a treat while savoring an exceptional blend of French and Chinese cuisines, prepared with local, mainly organically-grown ingredients. Vietnamese food never tasted better!

Served family-style, the dishes are meant to be shared, so you can enjoy a variety of combinations and tastes.

Everything on the menu is flavorful and delicious — and contains NO MSG.

For appetizers, we like the Slanted Door Fresh Spring Rolls with shrimp, pork, mint and peanut sauce and the Crispy Imperial Rolls.

For lighter fare, we suggest the Grapefruit & Jicama Salad with candied pecans, Spicy Organic Bluelake Beans,and the delicious Lemongrass Tofu with fresh shiitake mushroms, onions and chili sauce.

Menu standouts include:
Carmelized Tiger Prawns with garlic, organic onions and chili sauce; Meyer Ranch Shaking Beef cubed Filet Migon with garlic, watercress and organic red onions; Cellophane Noodles with fresh Dungeness Crab Meat; and Spicy Japanese Eggplant with green onions and coconut milk.

Organic Chinese Teas
Desserts are scrumptious too. Enjoy a selection of dessert wines, after-dinner drinks, and small pots of organically-grown Chinese teas.



Private Party Room
A glass-walled private dining room sits off to the side at the far end of the restaurant. It seats up to 20 people — ideal for entertaining VIP Clients, Top Performers, Celebrating Special Occasions or Group Events.

For parties of 8 or more, a
prix fixe menu is required.

Slanted Door Bar
Visually, the restaurant's 52-foot granite bar (shown below) is quite stunning — it's a great place to pop in for a drink after shopping at the Marketplace or while waiting for your table. Their signature drink — Ginger Limeade with Hangar One Kaffir Lime Vodka — is one of the most popular. Cheers!
