Contigo Ratings and Reviews
We had two tapas, an appetizer, and two entrees for our meal. The meatball appetizer was great, made with beef, lamb, and something else, maybe ham. Everything we ate was tasty and beautifully presented. Our excellent waiter was Javier, who was born in Barcelona. He still speaks in a strong Spanish accent. We had five glasses of wine. The bill was about $100.
The ambiance is warm, from the lighting to the light wooden tables. Service is super friendly. Add to that the absolutely delicious seasonal ingredients and great flavors, and you can't go wrong. The shared plates style was great because I wanted everything. My mom who was visiting from out of town loved her first time here and my husband and I enjoyed yet another dinner at this lovely establishment. We'll be back!
Contigo is a local restaurant for me and definitely a favorite. Excellent food - always some surprises. Friendly professional staff, warm greeting on entry, knowledgeable on wine pairing.
The noise level is high and tables close together, but that seems to be forgotten after the meal starts.
The chef's tapas tasting menu is a great way to experience all their best signature dishes.
Compared to other tapas/Spanish restaurants in the same class, I would rate this restaurant as fair. The food was good but nothing special. We really liked the patapas bravas but it's presented as a side dish rather than tapas. The outdoor patio was very charming. The service was good.
this is one of our favorite restaurants. we have been there many times over the years. we can a point of returning every couple of months as the menu changes seasonally. terrific food, congenial staff. a good collection of riojas on the wine list, which is a particular obsession.
We arrived at the restaurant and had to wait 30 minutes for our table. The service was sub par at best We ordered a number of tapas to share and must admit these were the smallest tapas portions I have seen in my very broad eating experience in tapas restaurants. There is no single reason to go back to this overpriced tapas place or to recommend it to anyone
Contigo is a place I discovered when it first opened. I love it and will plan to include it when thinking of great places for dinner. The service is amazing, the food is incredible and the atmosphere is the best ever. It's at the top of my list as one of my favorite restaurants. Everything was delicious. The Pork Shoulder was at the top of the list.
My server, a lovely young woman, was charming and steered me in the right direction for the two sherries I had with my tapas. The food was delicious. Dining solo, I enjoyed the ambiance of Contigo, sitting at the table for two just before going out to the enclosed garden area. The other servers who assisted my server were all engaging, and happy. I had a throughly enjoyable evening of dining at Contigo.
Located just off the beaten path in Noe Valley, the restaurant has an inviting ambiance: lively but quiet enough to talk, pleasant modern decor. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was terrific. Order lots of different things and share---it's all good. As to previous reviews, I feel compelled to mention that the portion is small because these are tapas (small plates). Prices are reasonable for what is offered. I highly recommend this place.
Unfortunately, it was the hottest day in SF. Like most restaurants in the city, there was no AC in Contigo. We were seated outside which on a cooler day would have been perfect. But it was definitely better than seating inside which was probably much hotter. Our waiter(s) were very friendly and attentive. We ate the following: Sardine and avocado toast (yummy), albondigas meatballs (the sauce was tasty), croquette of ham and cheese (good) and the gem salad made with beets (fresh and cool on a hot summer day), manchego cheese was also good, flatbread (like a pizza) was just fair. The sparkling sangria was cooling on a hot day but it was not wow!. The bill for all this was $125 for 3 people. Overall it was a good Tapas meal but I was not bowled over. If I am in the area I may stop by to taste the Paella.
This is a terrific Catalan style tapas restaurant. The restaurant and the dishes have vibrant design and chic atmosphere. The food is really well prepared and they offer a nice range of tapas. This is a fun place for sharing food with your amour or family. The wine list is mostly Spanish so you may find something unusual. They offer paellas on Tuesdays! Just Go!
my daughter commented several years ago that Contigo had made a list of the most underrated restaurants in SF. it may still be true. the food is of the highest quality, perfectly executed, thoughtfully served. I particularly emphasize the manner in which the food is served. many small plates venues just bring the food to the table as it comes out of the kitchen. Contigo has a game plan and it is a good one.
