Añejo - A stunning multi-level sky-lit room, inspired & interactive Mexican cuisine, Canada's largest tequila selection, and Calgary’s best margarita.

Fresh, locally grown ingredients, cooked to perfection in Mexican style with a flair for contemporary flavours. Vibrant, boisterous, and bold.

Tequila - The finest, & possibly most misunderstood spirit in the world. All of our carefully selected tequilas are made with 100% Blue Weber agave.

We were seated at a two person at table, with booth seating on one side and a stool on the other side. My SO was sitting on the stool, and by part way through the meal he was very uncomfortable. Not the beat seating to enjoy your meal! Both seats were also too low for the table.

Food was great! My only minor complaint would be the dessert. We shared the tres leches cake, and it wasn’t anything to rave about.

I attempted to order two cocktails from the menu and both were unavailable. The waiter stated that they were transitioning to a new drink menu. However, he wasn’t able to offer me a drink from this menu either. If they haven’t initiated the new menu, then they should still have drinks stocked on the current menu. This was very disappointing for me.

First time at Anejo, we went for a late dinner because we couldn't get an earlier reservation. Food great but it it was definitely THE loudest place I've ever eaten dinner at. It was hard to have a conversation. I'll probably go back but it won't be on a Friday night.

everything was good, always a great place and lots of fun. Took my sister this time while she was in town from TO and everybody loved it. Best new thing to put in your mouth, the Chile en Nogada. OH MY GOD! never had a bad thing here, but this was another level. That mix of pecan sauce and pomegranate syrup was just fantastic, and the pork belly stuffed Chile... honestly probably my new favorite dish in Calgary.

My husband and I joined a few friends at Anejo to celebrate his birthday. We had heard great things about the food and we're excited to celebrate his 38th with some margaritas and tacos! The food did not disappoint. The Margaritas were excellent. The guacamole is a must. My husband and I shared 6 tacos and loved them all. The ambiance was loud and lively, which I enjoyed, but may be a consideration for people wanting a quieter experience. The reason I gave the service such a low star rating is due to one key incident that put a damper in our evening celebrations. When we arrived for our 7:30 reservation, the first thing the hostess said to us was "There's another table booked for 10:30 so are you OK with leaving before then?" when we told her that we were there to celebrate and were unsure of how long we'd be, she so to not worry about it. At about 10:20, we had finished our meals and our drinks were getting low. Our server came to the table to remind us that there was another reservation for 10:30; he was really sorry but we would need to settle up. I find it extremely poor customer service that we were made to feel like our patronage was not valued. Furthermore, there were several other table available in the restaurant and exactly zero people waiting to be seated. If you are celebrating an event and want to feel special or would not like to feel like a vagrant whose been asked to adhere to loitering rules, Anejo might not be for you.

Went for lunch with my son. Enjoyed the YYC Taste Experience. It was an excellent value and as always with Anejo the food was excellent. The service and the rest was ok I mean it was a quick lunch. Definitely plan to go back for their happy hour and eat tacos and enjoy my favourite Cadillac Margarita.

Service is a little slow, you can be waiting a while between getting the menu and the server taking your order. But that isn't a big deal because the menu is so good, it will take a while to decide anyway! The atmosphere and ambiance will distract you while you wait. One of my favourite places to go.

The first time we went we LOVED it! Service was great and the food to die for. The second time we just went this past weekend, the service was subpar. It was hard to get our waitress back around when we needed her, the hostess was rude and they stuffed us in to our table like sardines. However, the food was still amazing! I'm not sure that we'll be back anytime soon.

What we like best about Anejo is the ambiance. We love to be around people who are enjoying themselves and you can definitely find that here. Service was good, food was good and the tequila choices are great! They need a little more spice to the food, and I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the pork and beef tacos. The coconut shrimp was very good though. The margarita's were okay but all and all we found it to be overpriced for what we got.

My only complaint is that it was very loud. The food, drinks and service were excellent. We will go back for sure, but may try to reserve seats in a different area. We were right by the entrance but can see how another area of the restaurant might be quieter.

Have been here a number of times; the food and service never disappoint. This past Saturday evening my sister and I shared the always excellent guacamole; some mushroom tacos which were outstanding and the build your own cod tacos; also very good with plenty of cod. Unfortunately we had guests sitting at the table beside us; one of whom smelled very strongly of cigarettes which was unpleasant, but no fault of the restaurant, nor did we complain.
All of the servers were top notch; a great restaurant.

I have been going there for years cause the vibe and food are awesome. You know exactly what you will get,however the waiter obviously hated his job he did not take all our drink orders kept just getting one thing at a time coming back to our table multiple times for no reason and then when we really needed him we would get a drink once every 45 minutes to the point where the manager had to come and comp meals because they were cold and give us free dessert . He never smiled had absolutely no personality. We are all from WestJet and we give the best service to our guests and we respect the same. Get rid of him...with that being said the front door staff and bartenders are amazing and they work hard. Will be back for sure .

Ambience is good. Location is okay but there is no parking anywhere. Restaurant is over-crowded, hard to move around and we were informed upon arrival that there was another reservation right after us so we would have to be out within two hours. Food was mediocre and over priced. The tacos looked good, maybe we should have ordered them because the mains were nothing special. The guacamole was cool (they make it at the table) but it was not very flavorful. They also add an automatic gratuity of at least 18% and there was only two of us, with below average service. Not overly impressed despite other reviews. Probably would not go back.

Love the Halfyhour they have daily! The best margaritas and table side guacamole is so delicious. It’s a great little spot to have good quality food for a decent price at halfyhour! Gluten free and always so good about it for people with allergies.

We had a bad experience particularly with the service. The waiter missed or forgot to order our appetizers and brought our main dish instead. When we brought it to his attention all he said was “oh, I didn’t hear you order that”. He was unapologetic, short in all of his responses, not engaged, inattentive and made for a very poor experience making me not want to return, let alone refer a friend.
