SF Weekly's Description

In its third incarnation, anchoring the foodie paradise and transportation hub that is the Ferry Building, the justly famed Slanted Door is chicer and busier than ever. But its superbly conceived, seasonal, spicy and herbal Vietnamese fare, made with top-notch ingredients, is worth the trouble it takes to get a reservation. Favorite dishes at this Embarcadero restaurant include the barbecued pork ribs, crab cellophane noodles, and inventive desserts, though the whole menu is reliably good. Wonderful cocktails are a draw at the spacious bar-lounge.

    Try Charles Phan's take on Chinese cuisine for late night supper. -Roy Yamaguchi, Top Chef Masters

    Charles Phan broke the mold for modern Vietnamese food when he opened the original, and the current incarnation remains the standard-bearer of ingredient-driven Asian cuisine. [Eater 38 Member]

    Quite possibly my favorite restaurant in the country. Humble family recipes from Vietnamese Chef Charles Phan, made exceptional with locally-sourced ingredients, all overlooking the San Francisco Bay.

    7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the cellophane noodles with crab are delicious. Yum!

    One of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. Offers classic and contemporary Vietnamese food. Big high energy room. A must see when in SF. -Rick Tramonto, Top Chef
