Contigo is a Spanish and Catalan tapas restaurant in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. Our menu features rustic dishes inspired by the vivid flavors of Barcelona. In addition, we offer artisanal Spanish and American hams and a daily Catalan coca (flatbread) from our wood burning oven. We cook everything from scratch using the products of our local, organic, and humane farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and artisans.

Our server was very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent. I’m very familiar with Spanish food- did not expect to be wowed- but the food was great. I thought the steak was pricey for the size 4 oz $28! The sangria was very watered down.
Overall a pleasant surprise-I will be back

We made a reservation for 7pm on valentines day. We were seated promptly and the server explained the menu to us. Food and ambiance was good. I just wish I knew that they had nothing indoor and outdoor seating when I made my reservation, so I would have a choice. Overall we had a very good experience.

Great place . . . from the warm and gracious hosts . . . to exceptional food . . . and really good waiters (they know the food and wines very well . . . and they are pleasant and efficient). Unlike lost tapas places, Contigo has mastered the metered flow of food -- in intervals that match the pace of a relaxed meal.

I have dined with family and friends at Contigo a number of times since it opened a few years ago. It is a desirable restaurant for many reasons.

I am confident that when I need a special place to have dinner, I can bring my party to Contigo for excellent food, service and ambiance. The prices are reasonable, and it's helpful that we live in the neighborhood.

I took my wife there for her birthday on a friend's recommendation. He's friends with the sous chef. We did the tapas taster. it was excellent and we walked out of their stuffed. The taster was comprised of 4-5 courses and the food was excellent. Very fresh and flavorful. I highly recommend Contigo for an enjoyable atmosphere and great food.

We had a dinner for our friend's birthday at Contigo. We loved the food, it was great quality. Service was good as well, they even brought a candle on our friend's dessert, which was nice. I would definitely come back again.

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.

We did the tasting menu. 7 dishes between the starters and mains. Grilled calamari was yummy. Came out in a nice way so we always had something to eat throughout.

Contigo is a wonderful tapas restaurant. We went on paella Tuesday. The paella was great. We also shared jamon croquetas, pear and cheese salad, and albondigas. Everything was delicious. We have been here many times before and will continue to go there.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in SF. The food is just outstanding. Catalan cuisine that retains its authenticity while still taking advantage of all the Bay Area has to offer.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Had a cool vibe to it. Great food and wine. From the moment we walked in the door, they were very friendly and welcoming, not over the top though, which to me, is perfect.
I would recommend this restaurant.
