  • Tia B.Make reservations or you might not get a table.

    33333 by Tia B.

  • David P.Awesome! One of the best restaurants in San Francisco/America!!

    55555 by David P.

  • Jyri E.Get the quail appetizer -- yum!

    55555 by Jyri E.

  • Ramon L.Bring back the old Slanted Door on Valencia...this one has turned into a tourist mill. Way too loud, way too busy. Food is still good though

    33333 by Ramon L.

  • John H.Make reservations weeks in advance if you want any hope of getting a table. Otherwise, show up 15-30 minutes before they open and they take walk-ins then. And yes it is well worth the hassle.

    33333 by John H.

  • HeatThe food is consistently good, and perfect for a big group to share multiple dishes. The rolls are yummy, and I always order the Shaking Beef.

    55555 by Heat

  • Philiam K.Atrocious service. The food was not good enough to make up for it. But if you make the mistake of coming here, then get the doughnuts.

    33333 by Philiam K.

    55555 by Claire T.

  • Hetal G.The restaurant's name comes from the literal slanted door entrance at its original loc. Different family members built the floor, door, ceiling, etc. Bad communication led to a poorly built entrance!

    22222 by Hetal G.

  • Kendra H.If you do not have a reservation ... you can usually get in for lunch. If you'd like a dinner reservation make it in advance, the sunset view and delicious food are too amazing to miss.

  • Abram D.Cellophane noodles and the crispy rolls.

    55555 by Abram D.

  • Derek K.Good brunch spot. Cellophane Noodles w/ Dungeness Crab is great. Ask for off the menu garlic soy ribeye steak - ridiculous.

    55555 by Derek K.

  • Tayla B.Rude. These people need to work on their customer service. Apparently getting a seat for 2 together at the bar is only acceptable when it is "easy" for the staff, not when there are willing patrons.
