Always a great mix of small dishes and larger Catalan dishes. Give the squid ink risotto a try.
Unfortunately, the waiter was reduced friendly and it took him 30 min. to serve our table for the first time, as well the water came with the bill and not when we arrived. Everything took too long, the bread was reduced to a minimum and when we ordered more, it were exact one slice per person. I have been at Contigo a few time and the service was only moderate, but this time it was unprofessional. In general, the tapas are good, but tiny compared to other locations and the Spanish standard. The location is average, as it is too expensive for the quality, quantity, a bit too noisy and mostly the service lacks terrible. A pity!
Overpriced. Some food was decent, but not worth the price. Good sangria and wine list. They had plenty of seating inside but sat us in the back outside.
Only issue was we got our water after asking 4-5 different servers. The rest of the experience was FLAWLESS. Will come back soon!
Beautiful food. Never seem to be able to get a good table.
Really enjoyed the chefs special price fix.
Contigo is my fav restaurant in SF. Mikala our wait staff person was fabulous! A must for locales or tourists!
As always Contigo never disappoints, the food and service is alway's to the highest standard...
Food, service, and ambiance was good... just wished there was was a larger selection of tapas. Purchasing tapas by the piece was a little different, so was pacing out the tapas in courses. It was much more enjoyable when we finally told our server to bring things out when they were ready. Part of the fun of having tapas is picking and choosing from a variety of dishes on the table. Pricing was a bit on the high side.
Great food great find for us to stumble across while in san fran perfect meal and great service
Sitting at the counter was great. Nice people and great food.
Outstanding Noe Valley restaurant. Top 5% of SF restaurants. Quality of food taste outstanding. Great menu. First rate service. Good looking space.
Great food and service.
A $17 glass of wine should be larger than a taster size... I was surprised and disappointed in the size of the serving, but not the wine - which was fine.
We went there to celebrate my friend’s birthday. Great service, great food.
Tasty food, great service, lovely interior.
Great place, love it for meeting up with friends with different diets. Some items feel overpriced, though.
Best to go with a group so you can share various dishes
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.
Watered 🍸 the waiter was unhappy with 20% tip in addition to 4% mandate
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.
Very good food. Service is a bit slow but the wait staff is friendly.
A favorite neighborhood restaurant in Noe Valley. Prefer room in rear.....less noise and warmer. Excellent service and variety of delicious food on menu.
The food and wine was good. The plates we order were a little bit too citrus though. Overall it is a nice restaurant with a great ambiance.
Our waiter, Carlos was exceptional. He was hospitable and anticipated what we needed before we asked for it. Please send him our thanks.
Wonderful food. It took me right back to the late night dinners in Spain
Cold breeze blowing through the restaurant from the back end
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.
The food was delicious and the ambiance and service excellent. Will definitely go back.
Great food, great service, and great ambiance. Would gladly go again!
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.
A fun, good neighborhood favorite.
I'm so happy Contigo is in my neighborhood. They change their menu monthly and there is always many good items on the menu that keeps me going back. Their servers are the friendliest ever!
We have never been disappointed!
Great neighborhood place. Elegant and romantic. Solid food. The squid in particular was outstanding. Delicious sherries. Friendly ambience and courteous service.
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.
A great dinner for the group! Seven of us all enjoyed the tapas which were served at a very good pace. We were never without a new plate to share!
