Established in 2005.

Colibri Mexican Bistro lies in the heart of San Francisco's bustling Theatre District, just a block west of Union Square. Spanish for "hummingbird," Colibri combines the simplicity of authentic family recipes with fresh, high-quality ingredients to bring diners unparalleled, delectable Mexican cuisine in a charming, turn of the century cantina setting. 

This warm and inviting eatery is reminiscent of Mexico City restaurants of the 1900's, decorated with classic Spanish paintings and accentuated by a vast collection of uniquely shaped and rare tequila bottles. Filled with energy, Colibri projects black and white 1940's Latino-film clips at the front of the house, while the open kitchen in back provides glimpses of its colorful cuisine in different stages of completions. Boosting a knowledgeable staff and attentive, sociable management, Colibri is dedicated to providing a memorable dining experience for both tourist and locals alike.

Lively, wood-decked bistro serving guacamole prepared tableside, plus moles, tequilas & more.- Google
"And they bring you free housemade corn tortillas with three dipping sauces."
"If you're looking for authentic Mexican food, this is not the place."

OVERPRICED. BLAND. BAD SERVICE. Omg bad experience. The food was nasty. The tortillas were soggy and everything tasted like it came from a can. The food looked really pretty but its flavor did not match up to the looks. Over priced watered down Mexican food! Doesn't even taste Mexican. Waiter was soooo rude. Gave us a really hard time, rolled his eyes at me when I asked for something.

The handmade tortillas here are amazing, as is the spicy cheese dish. The main dish was ... not as great as the appetizers.

Pretty average for brunch. Was lured here by cheap bottomless mimosas but they raised their prices ($10 to $14).

Tourist trap. Stay away. Food was not good at all. 4 people on the table and all plates were bad.

The food is awesome, this is real deal Mexican food, not your regular Taqueria, the flavors and ingredients are authentic, the place is nice, really enjoyed the mood and ambience. good choice of Tequila. not expensive for a nice restaurant/bistro I'm a regular here. the only comment would be about service, not very fast not really alert of their tables most of the time

This was a great find!!!! My wife and I had brunch here and it was amazing!!!! I had the shredded chicken omelet and it was soooo good! Taste explosion. My wife had the chiliquelies(sp?) and she said it was the best brunch/breakfast dish she had ever had. It is not in in the best part of town BUT sometimes that is where you find the best eats. Our service was fine.... Not sure what all these haters on Yelp are griping about the service for. I would highly recommend this place for brunch. We will go back next time we are in SF.
