Restaurant Description: Colibri Mexican Bistro features a traditional and diverse Mexican cuisine. The complex flavors from the kitchen are complimented with creative drinks, selected Tequilas, beer and wine from the bar. The decor matches that found in Mexico City's cantinas in the early 1900's. Bienvenido a Colibri Mexican Bistro y buen provecho! We serve our authentic cuisine in a tapas style so that you can enjoy multiple dishes to share with others.

The service was terrible. We only ordered appetizers but had to wait 45 minutes for soup and fish tacos. The kitchen staff was standing around talking while we were waiting and the table next to us had many items brought out promptly so I don't understand the hold up. We've been here several times, this was a disappointment. If it wasn't for the homemade tortillas and proximity to other things we wouldn't have come back.

Pretty meh. Maybe better for drinks. Odd food: Started with appetizer of melted cheese overwhelming small bits of mushrooms and sausage; very tiny chili relleno from the main course part of the menu; a romaine salad with grilled shrimp that was more difficult to cut than most steaks; nothing had any real heat, including none of the salsa offerings on the table, one of which was supposed to be"the spiciest" of the three. Disappointing. SF has trouble with Mexican food if you're not in the Mission.

Colibri is always one of my favorite places to go for happy hour in San Francisco. I came to celebrate my birthday and the food and margaritas were delicious as always.

The guacamole is fabulous, as are the margaritas and shots of tequila. Our preference is to sit at the bar, but wait staff do a great job at the tables as well. We try to go every time we’re in SF for plays, good brunch on weekends, never have had a bad meal.

Delicioso ! El Servicio excelentísimo ! La Comida buenísima! Necesitan mudarse a un espacio más grande las mesas están muy pegadas ofreciendo cero privacidad. Somos regulares. Nos encanta la comida.

Came here 2 years ago and loved it, food and service were both great, pricey but delicious. This time, we waited a long time to get service and then to get out food. When the food came out part of it was cold and had to be sent back, not as tasty as before, and not at the same level it was the last time.
