We really enjoyed the Contigo dining experience and its authentic tapas similar to the best spots in Barcelona or our favorite Barrafina's in London. We ordered the small plate sampler and appreciated the array of flavors and the quality of the ingredients in the seven dishes served. Our favorite dish was the cioppino like fish stew. The pre-dinner vermouth apertiffs... More

We dined at Contigo NYE. Booked through Open Table, as earlier attempts to book via telephone were unsuccessful. They only offered a set menu on the night which was unexpected but we were open to the idea. Service was excellent. Server enthusiastic, engaging and informative. Decor typically suburban, nothing special, no table clothes and average level cutlery. Food presentation was... More

Good atmosphere here, we went on a Friday night. The food was good, but it was super expensive, even by San Francisco standards. Small, tasty tapas, big prices. We enjoyed the flat bread, the croquette and the Serrano best. Lovely wine, but again very pricey - starting at 35 dollars for a carafe... The food arrived very quickly, all plates.... More

Really loved our dinner last night at Contigo in Noe Valley. Many great flavors. I had a very refreshing pomegranate Sangria. Then a parade of marvelous dishes. We especially enjoyed the duck, fried Serrano ham fritters, ratatouille, corn and chanterelle mushrooms... I guess we especially loved it all!

Great tapas which is shared by our table of 4. We started with sangrias and drinks and decided to do their prix fixe 7 course tapas tasting menu for $48 pp. The croqueta de jamon Serrano was a fried fritter, a great start because when you bite into the crisply dough, you get to the creamy filling with the slightly...

Nestled in Noe Valley on Castro off 24th is this little gem. Excellent service and delicious tapas await you -- go for the tapas tasting menu, if you don't and you see someone else with it, you'll be soreeee.... I usually get warmed for the occasion with some cava but others go for the sparkling sangria and achieve similar happy... More

My friends took me here while visiting in SF. We had several glasses of wine before and during, so my memory was a little fuzzy upon leaving. The food was amazing. Nothing was without it's moments of glory. The complexity of the flavors surpassed the simplicity of the ingredients. If I ever have tomatoes that taste so good again, then... More

My companion and I met for an early dinner at this charming little restaurant in the Castro. Upon learning that this was my first visit, the waiter gave a concise and informative explanation of all of the selections on the menu. He also made recommendations regarding portion sizes, which helped us avoid ordering too much food. We both started with... More

We went with another couple and shared everything. The lamb chops were good (albeit tiny for the price), the croquettes were excellent, the 5J ham was a splurge but worth it, the "pizza" was excellent, and the chard was so good that I finished it off myself! I only wish that the seats were cushioned.

Four of us ate hear while visiting a friend who lives in the area. It was the best meal of our four day trip. We shared five items and each one was flavourful and unique. My two favourites were the smashed pea toast and the albondigas. The service was good and the price was reasonable. The tapas menu provided lots... More
