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
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
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
The spacious restaurant seats
150 people in the dining room
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
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
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
Menu standouts include:
Carmelized Tiger Prawns with garlic, organic
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
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
great place to pop in for a drink after shopping at the Marketplace or while
your table. Their signature drink — Ginger Limeade with Hangar
One Kaffir Lime Vodka — is one of the most popular. Cheers!
