Food is good really enjoyed the cocktails. Only issue was my burger came out way over cooked. Still tasty though, just a little bummed. Would come back for sure.

Sigh. I must say I have never left a restaurant so dissatisfied with customer service. In fact, I have held off hoping I would get over my frustration and not post a bad review, but still just not the case. The atmosphere was nice despite the rain and I love the concept of this place; however we will never go back based on our experience. As an avid restaurant goer, I have been in many situations where the experience has been unpleasant and the server or mgmt does SOMETHING to resolve it. I had just purchased a North Face rain jacket prior to dinner and picked up the burger to take a bite. Not even biting into the burger grease sprayed all over the front of my light grey jacket. In an unsuccessful attempt to soak my water-proof jacket with water, a female server kindly offered to get us flour to doctor it. Definitely killed the mood of dinner on top of our waiter then accidentally dropping and shattering the water glass at our feet (awkward). Female server was very kind and offered to talk to the manager, however our server just kept awkwardly saying to us "good thing it's going to be alright"...then asking to speak to a manager we asked him advice on how to get the stain out of the jacket and the first snarky and already prepared words came out of his mouth..."I mean, it's not like WE spilled the grease on you." Thank you restaurant manager, we are FULLY aware that you did not spill the grease on my jacket. What we are aware of is your smartass response and making absolutely no effort to practice decent customer service to this situation. As someone in a career that deals with people, a short term monetary sacrifice for an unpleasant customer experience or AT LEAST a genuine sign of empathy towards a customer that had a bad experience shows some ROI. In his case, you Mr. Manager failed at your duty as a restaurant manager where customer service comes first. Do I expect a new jacket paid for? No. Do I expect my entire meal and drinks comped? No. What I do expect is your employees do as you say, NOT what you do. Because what you did, was extremely unimpressive.

I absolutely love the vibe of Contigo! So far it's my favorite place to grab brunch in Austin. The dining room is fully outdoors so it makes for an amazing setting on a beautiful Spring day. Contigo has an awesome waitstaff and a great selection of both food and drinks. The most recent time we went, it was cold outside, so they had a special hot toddy menu that was delicious. We also got the warm cornbread, which was drizzled in a sweet caramel sauce and topped with a to-die-for crumble. My favorite thing to eat was the beef tongue hash, which had some ridiculously good breakfast potatoes along side. Definitely a spot I'd check out for a great Austin brunch.

One of Austin's best brunch experiences. Delicious food and great cocktails. Contigo is an outing and will always be busy when the weather is nice. Plan in advance and enjoy drinks and fellowship while you will be worth it! Great atmosphere.

Great for happy hours. Really delicious cocktails and a good selection of beer coupled with some good, discounted apps make for a prime after-work gathering spot. The outdoor seating is great and stays comfortable even in the hottest months.

This place is like going to eat in someone's giant backyard; I say that with all pleasantries. More than half of the area appears to serve as Contigo's outdoor beer garden while the rest is more of a covered patio than a traditional sit down restaurant. The decor fits though as their food is emphasized as directly from the farm to table. The food is absolutely fresh as if it was pulled from a garden in the back. My friends and I tried their pigs in a blanket and fried green beans to start. The pigs came out hot from the oven and served with a Dijon mustard while the green beans were crisp and served with a nice aioli sauce. As for the main course, there was one entree that caught my eye and that was the rabbit and dumplings. Their serving sizes are certainly on the lighter side, but that's what I now come to expect from places that hold more importance on quality than quantity. The rabbit came in stew form on a medium sized skillet and with three biscuits the size of a half-dollar coin; it almost resembled an open-faced pot pie. The rabbit was certainly tender and honestly really harked my memories to a fresh chicken pot pie. While the food was of good quality and delightful, the price and certain wait you'll have to endure doesn't necessarily make me think that Contigo is a must-go eatery. I also have to note that on the day that my friends and I visited Contigo, a massive storm came into town and basically limited the usable space to just the patio area. The great openness concept was then draped with heavy plastic covers to shield us from the rain and eventually hail. While I'm not faulting Contigo for the bad weather, it did highlight that on bad weather day, Contigo may not be the best venue to visit. However, this is an absolutely great spot to enjoy eating under the stars during a wonderful night in Austin.

One of my absolute fave places to indulge. The food is amazing and so are the drinks. I love the happy hours. The major bummer is no reservations. It can get pretty busy, which equals a LONG wait. Get there early if you can. Dogs are allowed, which is awesome. They have traditional seating and also big picnic tables you can share with strangers. I've had some pretty interesting conversations with complete unknowns there before.

The flavors that the chefs here achieve in their dishes are insane for the price. Awesome food, awesome price!
