O&A is a regular destination for us. their delicious and authentic Spanish tapas are fantastic. Their beer, wine and spirits selections are also fantastic. This is a place we've been and a place we will likely return - if for nothing else but the flank steak and Patatas Bravas.
On this occasion, we headed to O&A for our New Year's Eve date night. While the service wasn't to the standard it usually is on this visit, the food was delicious as always. We'll be back for sure, and hope that service is up to it's usual standard when we do return.

Dinner was nice.
Love that they changed things up for me being that I am allergic to seafood.
However it is a good thing I know what I can and cannot eat as we were served some octopus by mistake (Not by our server )
But if one was not paying attention it could have been hey serious problem.
And the tables by the front door on a cold night are super drafty and kinda takes away from the whole experience.

Went with a friend to Ox & Angela for Saturday brunch, and everything was delightful.
We were seated right away, our waiter was great, and the food was scrumptious! Best pancakes ever, and if you order them, make sure they come at the end of the meal, because they classify as dessert in my books!
I will definitely return, and recommend to friends.

While my husband enjoyed his brunch selection, I was disappointed. The potato hash was nicely spiced, but arrived cool in temperature and I was brought the wrong eggs Benedict. It ended up tasting fine, but again, the cool temperature of the eggs Benedict led me to believe that my plate had been left sitting for a while.

Warm reception by hosts. Waiter was very accommodating of our foursome conversations preceding order taking. Maitre D' introduced himself and we had a pleasant chat. Had efficient / timely delivery of 10 dish orders. Only concern was the octopus in olive oil appetizer brought to table in the original can ... presentation and $22 cost seems incompatible and also, clumsy for toothpick targeting of morsels in tin. Would have rather increased the octopus carpaccio volume and the low price of $11. Baked Persian dates, patatas bravas and pan fried mushrooms were excellent.
Tasty desserts finished off the meal with good decaf coffee.
I always go for the spanish table which ...
I always go for the spanish table which includes all the signature dishes. Its great and portion usually pretty good. This time with the same choices. We had 6 people, and their individual items are caught up, but the sharing dish portion seems just comes in 2 dishes but they are still a little bit small. I think I will ojly recommand the Spanish table when theres a smaller group.

Wow, can't say enough about this place!
My girlfriend was visiting from out of town and this was right up our alley. The food was outstanding. The pickled artichokes, manchego, kale salad... every dish was better than the last.
Our wine was delicious with help of our server who was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Extra thanks to Gabby, who made the night even better.
This is my new go to. Thanks Ox team, stellar job!

Thoroughly enjoyed Ox and Angela. I have been to this restaurant many times and it does not disappoint. Food is fabulous and the service was very good. The brussell sprouts were delicious. Great place to go for dinner.

Ox and Angela has been a favorite of my husband and I for a while, but this experience was certainly worth writing about. We had made a reservation about two weeks prior, but on arrival the host and manager informed us of an unfortunate incident with the evening's bookings. We were asked if we wouldn't mind sitting at the bar, thankfully we were quite happy to as it was a casual evening for us. The entire night we were very well taken care of, with a few little delicious treats along the way to make up for the mix-up. Their customer service is top-notch, we ended up having a wonderful dinner! Thank you!

I went there on Sunday night for a 5:30 reservation with 3 friends, we were shown to our table right away...absolutely no waiting. The food was amazing (had the paella) the service was excellent, very friendly and very informative when we asked any questions. We went here despite some of the reviews we read ahead of time and all 4 of us were so glad we chose to try it. Would highly recommend it to everyone, the only complaint was the loud table behind us....made it difficult to hear our conversation.

Went recently with another couple before the Flames game. We both had the Spanish table, and all the dishes were fabulous. If you are new to Tapas, or want to try something unique, I highly recommend this restaurant. Service was excellent on a very busy night.

Horrible dining experience. My wife and I have been here many times in the past for special celebration dinners but this most recent visit will absolutely be our last.
We made the staff painfully aware of a very serious food allergy that my wife has and it wasn't until half way through our meal that we were told by the manager that they actually couldn't 100% guarantee that cross contamination with the allergen could take place. What a joke and how dangerous and reckless to put my wife's life in danger like this. This isn't just a food intolerance, its full blown allergic anaphylaxis which is life threatening. If you can't control your own kitchen and ingredients, I have no idea what you're doing in the professional restaurant business. Chain restaurants like The Keg, Moxies, and Montana's can accommodate the allergy no problem at all. Just pathetic and negligent.
Icing on the cake was the passive aggressive and cavalier attitude of the manager as we were walking out of the restaurant mid meal. He tells us he's "taken care of the meal" for us. No kidding! Of course he's going to pay for the half eaten meal when he's put my wife's life in danger so recklessly! It's 2016 - food allergies and dietary restrictions are prevalent. Take an active role in the industry, up your game, and control your kitchen environment. We will not be back and will be sharing this horrible experience with everyone we know.
Very disappointing from a restaurant we used to call our favourite.

I will say that the potatoes and pork belly dishes were delightful. However, I was dining with a celiac and despite what their website mentioned for gf substitutions they were not plentiful. A lot of my favourite dishes were served on sourdough but they did not offer any gf options. I was also quite disappointed with the table, I had made reservations far in advance and we got two tables shoved together by the door squished between a booster seat and family dining next to us when there were lovely booths that sat vacant. The price was decent so no complaints there, I was just a little underwhelmed.

First spanish resturant I'd ever set fine dining too. They have a few specialities with cured ham and pork - which seemed to be their main attractions. I've tried the cured ham and pork belly appys. Really enjoyed the pork belly, thought the cured ham seemed like cold cuts on a price tag.Their entrees were amazing paired up with a bottle of wine. Great little spot for an intimate dinner.

The tapas here are pricey, but delicious. Highly recommend the fried artichokes, and the deep fried goat cheese with arugula and mint was divine. The paella, however, was a complete let down. Pro tip: ask what the daily offering is before ordering it. They say it takes up to 35 minutes to cook, so we ordered it as soon as we were seated without bothering to check what it would be (our bad). We ended up with a chorizo sausage, red pepper, clam and arugula paella. The flavours were weak, mismatched, and the paella was slightly cold. Sadly, I don't think we'll ever order it again. It was just that disappointing.
The service was slow and surprisingly inattentive for an early seating on a Friday night, when the restaurant was only half full. Wasn't expecting that.
In summary: great tapas, so-so service, high price point, and don't believe the hype about the paella.

We went for a easy dinner this last Thursday night for five of us and loved it! We had the red sangria which was a great value, the tapas we chose were excellent as well. Our favourites were the rabbit, brussel sprouts, and the octopus carpaccio. We will be coming back and will be recommending people to come here to have a well priced meal and people looking for an environment to relax, enjoy their company and the meal.

Food was good. Service was good. But the noise level was so high we couldn't really talk which was the point of being there. We left earlier than we would have normally so probably wont choose it as a venue again. But its fine if you don't mind about noise level though.
Not sure whats going on at Ox and Angela ...
Not sure whats going on at Ox and Angela lately, but every since September/October, things have been seriously disappointing. I would happily go to Ox about once a week during the past couple years, but these last few months have been horrible.
I understand there's new management and that it may take a while for things to settle in, but the speed of service, and friendliness of staff should change...
I've never had to wait longer than 10 minutes for my BOOKED RESO until last weekend. When I waited almost two hours. Nice. Never again.
Please stop whatever changes that are trying to be made, cause it's clearly not working out for Ox.
You've officially lost a dedicated customer.

We have been to the restaurant at least 5-6 times and every single time the service is outstanding. Everyone who works there is pleasant, polite and offers great suggestions when asked. The food is always spot on...the patatas braves are a must (as is the mushrooms with truffle oil on sourdough...oh, and the churros!). A great spot for a meal with friends as well as a date night.

Finally got to check this place out after hearing a lot of good things about it. Went at 5:30 on a Sunday night and it was very quiet, which was perfect. Ordered multiple things from both the small plates and bar snacks and everything was fantastic. The prawns were by far the best thing we had, couldn't get enough of them or the bread they come with. Sever was knowledgable and knew the menu well.
