My major complaint was that it was very difficult for the 3 of us to have conversation. The music was very loud and choice was not subtle. Otherwise everything else was quite good.
Amazing food, amazing wine, lovely staff!! We’ll be back!
We loved our experience, everything about it! Our waiter James was excellent and Jason was great as well! The food was amazing! Thank you!
Great ambiance and great service! Our waiter was really attentive and knew how much to order as we wanted to try everything! Lol
Great service, delicious food. We would recommend the Spanish Table option, as we got to taste many delicious dishes, some not on the menu, and it had the added excitement of not knowing what dish would be coming next!
Not the best setting... i wish it was a more intimate restaurant.. but we love the food and worth it for that alone!
Go between the hours of 5-9, at the bar top everything is 50% off. For tapas this an absolute must. Great beer. Great atmosphere.
Worth the drive for good good and ambiance. Service was good atmosphere good.
We were disappointed that the menu changed. Some of our old favourites were gone and what we did order was so so. Happy hour prices are a good deal but I still wouldn’t go back.
Absolutely amazing! Went for high top happy hour. Was so pleasantly surprised at the quality of food. We ordered 5 tapas for two of us, and that was a bit too much. 3-4 would have been plenty. The early grey sour was also phenomenal! Everything we ordered was unbelievably tasty. Rarely do we go out to eat without having one complaint, either about the food or service. Both were great! You know it’s a good place when you talk about how amazing it was days later.
food was good. overall experience was bad, we were a group of 6 and they didn’t have the best service to accommodate us. For the bill we had to do the split ourselves on the table and it was very akward. the extra bread is charged without even letting you know. for a small group would say it’s good but for a bigger group stay away unless you have one person paying for all.
Menu is excellent but quite limited.
Just back from a vacation in Spain and thought we would check out the tapas restaurants in YYC. Ox Bar de Tapas is the first we have tried here at home, and we strongly suspect that it will be the first place winner for us! The food was excellent and the servers work together so seamlessly that this restaurant should be a model for any restaurant interested in benchmarking superb customer service. It’s a happy, lively place on a Saturday night so if you’re wanting a romantic date, better try a weeknight. 😉
We went there for our 20th Anniversary and had a lovely romantic table. The food was incredible and we will definitely go back again to try everything on the menu we haven’t tried yet
The food was amazing. The potatoes, mushrooms and prawns were my favourite dishes. Drinks are pricy but good. Avoid the meat hook cocktail, it has a terrible taste. Our waiter was great! I’ll definitely be going back!
Great food, service, wine selection and atmosphere. Would love to see more vegetarian options.
Amazing food, amazing service, amazing drinks! Highly recommend and will most definitely be going back!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Four of us celebrated a birthday here and I'm glad we did. The service is excellent and the food delicious.
We love Ox Bar de Tapas since the change over. The food is always on point, the ambience is great and we love the vibe. To top it off exceptional service.
Fantastic flavors and presentation. Excellent service.
The staff was great, and very accommodating ! The Spanish Croquettes appetizer was very tasty, and the paellas was wonderful !
Perfect date night. Food was so flavorful. Our waitress was very knowledgeable. Did not stir is wrong. Can't wait to go back!
Really enjoyed the Tapas and this is coming from a person who has had pintxos in the best restaurants in Northern Spain.
We arrived for our reservation totally unaware that there was a happy hour special. The host at the door gave us the option of sitting at the table we booked, or taking one of the bar seats in the lounge area so that we could take advantage of their 5-7pm "high top happy hour" where everything on the menu - food AND drink - was 50% off (exceptions being the "Spanish Table" menu, the steak and house wines). We jumped at the deal and had the most incredible meal. At 50% off, we ordered more things than we would have otherwise (all so so delicious) and still spent way less than we'd expected to. Service was prompt, portion sizes were huge, and the cocktails were amazing. We left extremely full and happy.
Another great night out at the Ox! Food is consistently great. This particular evening we opted for the chef's table, which was an excellent mix of some of our favorite dishes and, some others we hadn't tried before. Overall it was a great night
As usual it was delicious
Amazing venue and food!! Highly recommend the “tables”
Amazing food, quality service and a great date all around !
Worst restaurant been to in a while. Shame cause the food was decent but there was no one in the whole place at 9pm on a Thursday. Staff, especially the super rude manager,
made us feel very unwelcome and pretty much told us he had better things to do than to wait for us to finish our dinner. Take your business right next door to Clever, where you won’t be treated like a burden.
The food was yummy but pretty over priced for the serving size. For a place known for sharables I don’t think the serving size is meant for anything more than a single person. Really loud but a cool atmosphere. Our server was super nice.
Hostess was rude and unwelcoming. Visited on 9/13 around 6:30pm. Ice chips made it difficult to enjoy cocktails, no straws provided to be able to consume whole drink without getting ice everywhere.
We were disappointed that the menu was much shorter than the one presented online. Otherwise food was very tasty
This is my favourite restaurant in the city and has been since it first opened. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes unique, delicious food and sharing plates. We were a group of 8 and we ordered almost all of the plates on the menu by the time the night was done. The servers are all friendly and fun to chat with as well. You must have the Patatas Bravas and the Gimme that Rosemary cocktail!
Went with some friends was pleasantly surprised with the Tapas and some Spanish servers made it even better :) will be back for sure.
We had a very nice meal with Tapas and a wine pairing (Spanish Table). The service was very good and the food was excellent with wine pairings that were interesting. The place was very loud but that is more the clients at the time than the restaurant itself.
We will return with a little more planning so we get a quiet table rather than the high top!
their foods are so good，and the servants are all very patient and gave us good recommends. I will go there again and again.
Decided to go here based on the food pictures - it did not disappoint. The food was deliciously flavourful and the servers were fun! The Creme Brûlée was one of the best I have ever had. Would definitely come here again!
Casual friday night family dinner. Had been when it was Ox and Angela. Really enjoyed the new current incarnation. All was very good... save maybe the host who was a little stand-offish... not what you expect as a first point of entry. Nonetheless, overall a really nice evening... a bit more $$ than what we'd planned but knew when we chose this restaurant that it would be a somewhat spendy evening.
Best tapas ever!
Happy hour = 50% off on everything on the menu!!
I will definitely be back!!! The food was very reminiscent of my time in Spain. The bartender was incredible - knew when to socialize and when to stand back. Overall - an amazing night. Thank you! Can’t wait to come back for date night with the husband.
