The lunch I tried to eat here recently was bar none the worst restaurant meal I have been served in years. The iced tea tasted like the Wildroot hair tonic my father used to use. The "bavette" steak comprised three small pieces of beef surrounded by french fries drowned in gravy--that's right, french fries in gravy. We sent the tea back, of course, and then they tried to charge us for it. I have had a number of takeout meals from the OTD at Ferry Plaza, and only rarely have they risen above mediocrity. The famous Slanted Door itself is an intolerable environment, a complete assault on the eardrums, and better Vietnamese food can be had at almost any other Vietnamese restaurant in the city. The whole outfit, in my view, is a fraud.

There are currently 2 locations for Out the Door: one at the Ferry Building and the other at Westfield San Francisco Centre. This is a review of the latter. It's much bigger than the former. The tables are long and metal tops. The food is excellent and the service is good. Best of all, the prices are very reasonable. This is a great place to have lunch and ideally located across Market St. from Union Square. If you're shopping at the Westfield San Francisco Centre, then this is the place to have lunch in the food court.
