User review by tiggeriffic – Love the cheap food and fun crowd. Usually meet some new people if I want to, but not if I don't. Often crowded, however, depending on where you sit you can have a private conversation. Wait staff friendly and flirty.

Great experience here – A friend had a great Valentines Day party here (no cover since we were a large group), and this place rocked! I dunno if it's that cool every Friday night, but I'll definitely be back to find out. Didn't try the food at all, drinks were excellent but the bartenders were a bit overwhelmed by the amount of people. Al in all a good place and I had a blast. Music was mostly hip-hop and dance which is fine, a bit of reggaeton which was EXCELLENT. Pretty average clubbing music.

Mixed Bag, But Nice To Look At – We went for lunch on a Tuesday around noon, and unlike many other reviewers we had no problems with the service. The is amusing, including a plaster mask of a guy sticking his tongue out. As far as food, the Contour Burger and the Tomato Honey Basil Soup are both highly recommended (the latter tastes like an excellent pasta sauce and comes with bread to dip for only $3!). The Vegetarian Panini, however, has a noticeable lack of cooking. Although they claim it's toasted, only the bread is warm. The fresh mozarella is depressingly unmelted.

Terrible Service. – Went in during happy hour on a Saturday - the place was empty with the exception of 2 people sitting at the bar. Not only did the wait staff stand around and look past us when our drinks were empty, after waiting about 10-15 min, I finally went up to the bar and ASKED for our check. Food was okay, for being only 1.95... but don't order the spanikopita... it was as bad as the service.

Sketchier than a Leroy Neiman Painting – this place is great for food, drinks, dancing, music, "after hours" and dragon slayers. They all come out in full glory come the stroke of midnight er..4am. Midnight to Contour is like 4pm at a restaurant - hasn't even gotten started, because the dragon slayers dont' come to nest till after 1am...Great Happy Hour though...food is great. Outdoor seating. Great DJ/Turbo music. Come nest, get suuuuper shady, and have a great time...

Saturday night Russian Music – Contour's Saturday night is Russian/European music night--and it Rocks! The scupltures and art displays give Contour an attractive setting while the dance music is energetic and pumps up the crowd to a fevered pitch...Not for the faint of heart! The bar staff is speedy and warm to the customer. It is sometimes a bit crowded after midnight but, come before 8 p.m. to get great and inexpensive food specials with tasty flavors. There aren't too many places like Contour for good food and fun!

Great Fun – Saturdays are FUN @ Contour,

They start by showing an international movie with subtitles, and then play energetic music all night long, with DJ Igor and DJ Misha spinning hot european and russian music, Speedbump finishes off @ 2am for afterhours

Love Foundry 2am – To experience the finest after hours Seattle has to offer is one thing, to meet the love of your life in the midst of the experience is another. Within the walls of Contour I have beamed the brightest smiles, shared the greatest emotions, and danced into the morning sun with a 97% stellar crowd by my side. The service from the second your ID is glanced, to the unbeatable arsenal of dj's, the pit stops at the bar for those non-alcoholic refreshments, and finishing the night off with the best way anyone could recieve a coat. Nick, Brad, Chico, Zona.... I miss you all, you guys are the greatest.

Look, don't eat. – Went in for lunch. Waitress was nice. Pasta with alfredo was wildly bland. Waitress did not offer grated parmesian, fresh pepper, or anything else. We waited 35 minutes to be served, at a lunch hour when they had one patron at the bar, and only 2 other tables (who were all ready eating when we walked in.)

Stunningly plain, very disappointing culinary experience, but the ambience is great, to be fair.

strike three...you're out! – I've been to Contour 3 times now for the happy hour, and while the ambience is good and the burger was tasty, the service sucked every time. This last visit, the place was pretty empty and it took over one hour to have ONE drink and an appetizer!! So only go to Contour if you have a lot of time to spare and you don't mind feeling ignored.
