    Dined on 9/14/2014
    I've been to Ox & Angela a few times before and this was a disappointing experience. Every time I have had The Brunch Table menu they have either removed an item from the list or shrunk the serving size without changing the price, this time the eggs benedict was half the size. There was too much salt on half the dishes. The food took a long time to come for the second wave of dishes and was a bit cold. The server did not check in on us and we had to ask someone else for the bill.

    HereAndNow
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    Our group of six was seated quickly. The service was some of the best I had in Canada (I'm from London, UK). It was discreet and polite with adequate presence without being overbearing or too familiar. It was too noisy for me. Most of what my friends were saying most of the evening was unheard by me if they weren't shouting—hardly a recipe for a civilized conversation. The food was tasty and menu choices were comprehensive, but the portions were small and the prices were big. Four small pieces of gluten-free bread was $7. I will probably not eat there again because I thought the food overpriced. I would recommend it to others though for the menu and for the quality of service.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Ox and Angela! The fried goat cheese was amazing!! The only negative is that the tables are a bit too close together! Once another couple sat down we felt they could hear everything we said! Maybe a table or two less in the dining room!

    We chose this restaurant as something new to try to celebrate a family birthday. To start, we had the stuffed dates (fantastic). We chose 3 tapas per person as well as the paella. Way too much food! We were stuffed. Some dishes were meh (like the patatas bravas) others were fantastic (mushrooms). Overall I recommend this dining experience.

    This past weekend was the 4th time I've been to Ox and Angela - the menu has changed and did not fail to impress...once again! Our group of 4 all had The Spanish Table. I can't recommend it enough, everything was tasty and portions were perfect. The only thing that was a little off-putting was the noise when we first arrived - we had a small table but it was hard to hear the person across from you speaking. It did quiet down shortly after 8 so the rest of our meal was enjoyed in a nice atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!

    I had never been to Ox and Angela, neither had either of my friends. I'd heard that the food was pretty good, and tapas dining appeals to me because you get to share and try different dishes you may not have tried before. We really enjoyed every dish we ordered, the food was excellent and our server was really good, attentive, and very friendly and accomodating. I think it could be good for certain business lunches, as well, anyhow, I'll certainly return.

    Ox & Angela will not disappoint! Providing a range of tapas from the mouth watering stuffed dates (I literally need a 5 minute cool down after eating one due to the mix of sweet and savory flavors with the perfect hint of course salt), to the fresh salads, Serrano ham stuffed pepper and a notable wine list. This is the perfect restaurant for anything from a quick glass of wine and appy to start the night, a fabulous preset 10 tapa Spanish Table dinner where you take your time and enjoy the flavors and atmosphere, or even a post-show dessert (the Churros are amazing) and glass of port. A must try restaurant in Calgary with something for everyone!

    Fantastic restaurant. Plenty of great dishes to share with your friends and/or family. The service was great. They made sure we were taken care of and the food came out quickly. Expansive drink selection. They have a few signature cocktails that are all good. My favorite was the Ox. It packs a punch but is still very smooth and enjoyable.

    This really was an incredible dining experience. Every mouthful of our dinner was a taste treat. We began with the stuffed dates which we're misture of sweet and salty - very tasty. Next we had the stuffed peppers which were amazing. The scallop dish was cooked to,perfection and the lamb sausages were a nice spicy end to the dinner. We accompanied our meal with a glass,of tempranillo a perfect pairing choice. Our only regret was that we had no room to try more of this delectable food. Ox and Angela is a real find.

    The chairs we were sat in are made of metal and very uncomfortable. My wife is pregnant and so we requested to be moved to a cushioned seating area- After many uncomfortable minutes, the server came and finally agreed to move us. You would think I had asked them to rebuild the entire restaurant, and it wasn't even busy! - We both felt uncomfortable and so we left.

    The place was VERY busy....and loud. could barely hear my partner. The service was great! The food was good but it's not real Spanish tapas. It's a nice place to hang out but not so great for a romantic dinner. It doesn't have any Spanish feel to it, which is what I was looking for.

    Ox and Angela definitely a go to restaurant in Calgary. The food is always great and this time around our server was beyond excellent, he probably was our best server yet. Made our dining experience a great one! A lot of the servers are just ok at Ox and Angela but this server actually stood out and showed great enthusiasm and knowledge of the menu. He made us feel very welcome. And those are the people who make you want to keep coming back! Best service yet. And of course the food is always delicious. Would always recommend this restaurant first in Calgary, you won't be disappointed!!

    Every cocktail that everyone at my table ordered was excellent. The service was top notch. It was way too loud, my fiance actually lost his voice at the end of the night, it almost ruined the experience for me actually. The food was good, though I have had better at other tapas bars in Calgary. All in all, a nice evening, but wouldn't be my first choice.

    These guys are amazing! I planned a surprise birthday party for one of my closest friends here and wanted to ensure down to the last detail that everything would run smoothly the night of the party. I chose Ox and Angela because I knew it was one of her favourite restaurants and it wasn't long before I discovered why. From making the initial reservation, the staff was friendly and helpful. The real above and beyond moment for me was the effort they put into custom making a birthday cake in house for us the day of the dinner. It was a gluten free cake similar to black forest (my friend's favourite) and as per my special request, loaded with cherries. Thank you for making that night so memorable for us!
