    Agricole Rhum Punch, all their cocktails fantastic & should be for $13. While you enjoy your libation at the bar, watch the oyster shucking & seafood prep station's attention to detail on each plate.

    The first bracing taste of the pho bo ($8.50) -- a traditional soup with noodles and beef, served with a plate of sprouts, herbs, chile sauce and lemon -- brought me back to Hanoi's market stalls Read more

    If you are dining solo the staff is super friendly and will offer you to order half portions of some dishes. Great for you to try a bit of everything and not waste anything.

    If you can snag a seat at the long bar, with the Bay and the Bay Bridge just over your right shoulder, and order a few fried things to go with your cocktails, you'll feel like you've arrived. Read more

    My second visit and food was outstanding as expected. Unlike last time, we also indulged in their desserts. Citrus Trifle was worth the visit. Milk Choco. Mousse, bland name for this pistachio dessert

    Amazing. We tried to order the whole menu. Cocktails are well balanced and the food is so flavorful. I don't usually order the pork belly but with a sharing atmosphere I'm glad we did. Not too fatty.

    The Vietnamese crepes are a masterful blend of complementary textures. The tender pancakes are sauteed to form a crunchy edge, encasing velvety poached shrimp, vegetables and bits of pork. Read more

    Their rolls are delicious but for anyone with a peanut or nut allergy, the staff is willing to adjust recipes. Great views, decent wine list and good service. Great family style dining option.

    LOVED this place. Good vibe, great food and drinks. Reservation is a must but if you don't have one you can dine at the bar ordering from the restaurant full menu. California yellowtail is sooo good!

    Beautiful restaurant with a beautiful view. Food is always spot-on, especially the shaking beef, imperial rolls, crab noodles...bar is also great for a cocktail or strong iced coffee + apps

    Get rice daikon cake, chicken clay pot, crab cellophane noodles, & pick a yummy veggie. Skip spring rolls - totally overrated though the sauce is great.

    Dropped in for lunch since dinner seemed impossible. Bar was quite comfortable and service was friendly. Best spring rolls I've had. A great beer selection that probably is overshadowed by food.

    With beautiful views of the bay, I enjoy coming here for an early dinner to watch the sun set. My favorites include the shaking beef, cellophane noodles with crab and seasonal vegetables.

    Everything you order is good! Pork belly is great! Shrimp with shishito peppers delicious, bok choy with mushrooms and all the vegetable dishes are very well prepared! It is a must!

    Amazing restaurant! The tuna tartare, imperial rolls, cellophane noodles, and dumplings were fantastic, and you can't go wrong with the ginger limeade. Will definitely return!

    Best dinner I had in SF. Imperial rolls, spare ribs, cellophane noodles, spicy broccoli, and the shaking beef. Just do it. Thank me later.

    Food was excellent. We had the branzino, shaking beef and noodles with crab and cauliflower. Also has the crispy rolls and slanted door spring rolls. Preferred the crispy rolls.

    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.

    Ginger limeade cocktail is amazing, along with all the great Asian food on the menu. Don't forget to get the cotton candy!

    The Bay views of Charles Phan's popular restaurant are alluring, but the attraction remains Phan's incredible, inventive Vietnamese-inspired food. Try the spicy short ribs and crab spring rolls . Read more

    What's good? Well...the view, the drinks, the wine list (although I expected more CA choices), the veggie wraps with peanut sauce , the beef entree, the bok choi, and the cotton candy.

    Papaya salad plus the spicy squid make for a great business lunch. Grab an iced tea, it's infused with lychee and they'll refill it as long as your thirsty.

    Book ahead for this popular place. Everything is incredible but recommend spring rolls and ribs to start. The vegetable dishes are delicious and enough to share

    Shaking beef is delicious. Seats available at the bar. Waterfront restaurant so expensive but worth the experience.

    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.

    Can’t go wrong with the Shaking Beef. Best on Earth! But the Chicken Claypot is also amazing.

    Organic chicken clay-pot was yum! Difficult to get seating, so make reservations well in advance (it's popular!), but you may find a spot at the bar.

    Some of the best meals that Corinne and I have had in San Francisco have been here. Just might be worth to extend your stay to lunch or dinner at the Slanted Door! Don't miss the chicken clay pot!

    Get a booth facing the bay, order the shaking beef and a singapore sling, go home happy. Don't neglect a Vietnamese coffee for dessert (condensed milk + strong coffee)

    Charles Phan’s restaurant is still one of our SF staples - can’t skip it when we’re in town, even if we only have room for the raw bar and an order of their ridiculous Wood Oven Roasted Clams.

    You will need a reservation for the main dining area but the bar area is "sit right down", same menu. Get the crab and cellophane noodles!

    It is an outstanding restaurant with unordinary wine list. Normal food with Vietnamese culture... Amazing. No coca cola in the menu👍👍👍 a little bit crowdy. We had to wait for a table.

    Shitake Mushrooms and Wild Gulf Shrimp is really great. The ambiance and view is also suitable for chilling out with wine.

    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.
