Food was absolutely excellent! We drove in from Airdrie and it was well worth. They were also very accommodating for our little one, would go back in a heartbeat! Oh and the French press coffee was a nice touch, made for the perfect cup of coffee

One of the best tapas restaurants I've been to!
Best Sangria, highest bill this year!
Come here for extreme excellence in food and service, but be willing to pay for it and don't come hungry. The sangria was fantastic!
Eat here! Be careful you will order more then you can eat! Be bold and try things you wouldn't
I've been to Ox and Angela quite a few times since I've moved to Calgary and it's always the best time. Everything about it- the food, the drinks, the service is always awesome. I will be back again and again.
Delicious, Filling & Affordable!
Celebrated our anniversary over dinner on the patio! Our server gave fab food recommendations and was fantastic! My boyfriend and I split a pitcher of mojitos being that it was the Monday special. A bit too sweet for me but good. We got the kale salad which was amazing! I wasn't a huge fan of the batatas bravas (bit too salty for me) but my boyfriend loved them. The mussels were great...comes on crostinis:) We also had the chicken and pork meatballs whicI were delish! For dessert we got the flan and it was delightful:) highly recommend this spot if you're wanting to try a bunch of dishes. The prices are great. You'll spend the same amount you would if you went for a decent entre dinner elsewhere and the tapas do fill you quicker than you expect! :)

Delicious dishes, great choices. Portion size good so we could have selection.
MY favorite tapas place
Ours second time here and food was outstanding! My favorite tapas place. My favourites are:the pork belly w Harrisa sauce on crostini, the fried sardines, and the salt cod croquettes. Service was attentive and our food was served with short waits in between each dish.
Great food and excellent service
We have eaten here before and as always the food and service was excellent
Food was below average, and actually had only one bite one of the choices before we had to send it back. The flavours were very pungent and wrong for each other , tasted like chlorophyll. Atmosphere is nice but it was very loud. Service we good and very pleasant and understanding.
Must Eat Brunch
Ox and Angela is definitely a favourite of mine in Calgary - my husband and I go frequently and often bring visitors when in YYC. For some unknown reason we had yet to go there for brunch and not only do they take reservations for brunch (THANK YOU) but their brunch tasting menu was seriously amazing. "Huevos benedictinos" were out of this world, chocolate pancakes were an amazing finish and their twist on mimosas was the cherry on top. Big love for O&A.
This was my first visit and I will return!
We went for brunch and it was delicious! Had Eggs Benedict with kale & mushroom sautéed in a delicious truffle oil butter sauce... The potatoes were fantastic and I want to go back. I've heard the dinner menu rocks and I will definitely find this out!
Our waitress was absolutely lovely. Unfortunately, the food was subpar. It was cold and overpriced.

Server was friendly. Food came quickly and was tasty. The menu is a bit overwhelming and a lot of it we did not know what is was.
We ordered the six course meal for $45 each...amazing variety of textures, scents and tastes!! Although I got very full...I'm accustomed to larger portions, you know?! It's sometimes disconcerting when a "course" consists of 2 bite-sized portions on a single plate to be shared. But, like I said, I got very full. Absolutely hated the noise level.
The food was so good, we ordered a second round! Coupled with great service and food prices, we will be back very soon
One of my favorite restaurants, but I don't get their often. My wife and I always have the sampler dinner that has 6 or 7 courses. This visit was for Big Taste Calgary and I think that sampler had been trimmed by a dish or two in order to make it to the $35 limit. That's still fine. All components are excellent. Service is excellent. On this occasion, our server knew an incredible amount about wine, and given my love for Spanish wines and Sherries, that was a bit dangerous. I ended up having a few glasses. We've taken friends to Ox and Angela, and I've recommended it to others.
Ox & Angela is the place to experience! Loved the decor and atmosphere, would be a great place for a first date. The small portions of the tapas was perfect, you got to taste a bit of everything! Also got recommended a great wine pairing with my meal. Highly recommend their carrots with tahini yogurt and sesame seeds, it was quite the dish; a combination of spicy and sweet!

The noise level was a little high for our larger party to talk to each other. But everything - food/service/atmosphere - was still fantastic. This spot is still one of my favourites.

It was our first visit to OX and Angela but we will definitely be back. The food was amazing and the service was excellent!
Went for Big Taste with my girlfriend, really enjoyed getting to try many of their different items.
Great Food and good for gluten free people
We went during the Big Taste so had a prix fix menu.I would love to go back and try the Paella next time.The food was very good.I really liked the stuffed dates and the Hanger steak and carrots.It was very gluten friendly and my gluten free daughter just had one slight amendment to a bruschetta type appetizer and they put hers on gluten free bread.The service was fast and efficient without being intrusive.I will return.
My husband and I tried Ox & Angela recently after hearing so much about it. They did not disappoint as the food was delicious and well presented. The cocktails were fun, and the wine list definitely encourages you to try different wines. I did think it was a tad bit pricey for some of the more "staple" dishes, such as potatoes or root vegetables - however overall it was delicious! Service was really good and they were very knowledgeable about the menu and recommended portions.
Favorite for Tapas
We love every visit to Ox and Angela - the food is excellent and the staff always friendly and efficient. Best pisco sour ever, and lovely Spanish wine.
An excellent choice!! Food was amazing!

Always a great time
Wonderful food and fantastic cocktails have made me a repeat customer. Impressed with the new menu! Only downside of the eve was the rather rude hostess. She acted rather put out when I informed her that our reservation for 5 had gone down to 3. At 10:30 at night. "Oh... I'll have to go change that then..." and then she disappeared. I didn't appreciate being made to feel bad. Why are you working with the public if you don't like them? Other than that, a wonderful evening. Travis, our server, was friendly, attentive and helpful.
Took forever to be seated
Amazing food but it took the hostess more than 45 minutes after my reservation time to finally be seated.
Busy little place
Thursday night and the place was steadily busy. Our reservation was 7:30 pm and parking was a challenge, luckily finding a spot I just managed to parallel park into with only inches at both ends. A steady stream of customers with and without reservations were seated all through the evening. Our server was pleasant and recommended a great all around wine to go with the various tapas we ordered. Some dishes were great and some average. Service was attentive and efficient. It is a pricey place, our bill was about $100/per person gst and tip included.
Desserts.....one of each please!
Excellent food! Great sharing plates. Nothing here was particularly healthy - lots of rich food and even some fried potatoes. The dresserts were unbelievable. Really, REALLY good desserts. So, if you are good to blow 3500 calories, it's a great place to spend them! Service was perfect.

I had dinner here with my brother while he was visiting in town was both myself and his first time at Ox and Angela and all I can say is WOW! There are no words to describe how delicious the food was I would say one of the top ten meals I have had in my life, bravo!
The drinks are amazing!!

4 adults dined at Ox and Angela's on a Wednesday night. Staff were very good at knowing everything about the food prep, menu suggestions, and appropriate wine choice for our price point. Thanks! We went a 6pm and it was quiet until table of 10 showed up at 7pm along with other reservations...it was nice to have wait staff to ourselves for the first hour. We all enjoyed the Spanish Table and it was plenty of food for all. Tasty from the first small plates till the larger plates toward the end. Will return again

This is still one of my favourite spots to dine in yyc! I love their diverse tapas menu so I can try something new every time I come. The kale salad is incredible, as are the fried artichokes and mushrooms on toast. Best cocktail list in the city...the Rio Fogo and Bourbon Vanilla Sour are so good!
Very good, needed a bit of salt or spice in my dish

Great food to share and good ambiance for going as a group.
My husband and I took our daughter who had never been.(she is 18 years old). She loved the food and the atmosphere! We had a great time! Service, food and wine was wonderful! Maybe a bit noisy so was hard to hear sometimes, but was still fine.
Delicious food, but some of the small plates are a little chincy for how much you pay. I also wish that they did more classic croquetas because the salt cods one did not scratch that itch at all.
