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 went to Anejo for my wife’s 40th birthday with out of town guests. We have had wonderful experiences in the past, and we’re looking forward to the night out. Our server was very attentive and gave wonderful service. However, the food left much to be desired this time. The guacamole had no flavour (and usually it is amazing), and my wife’s fish tacos were way overdone. Was not the experience we were hoping to have. Disappointed.

I had been to Anejo for lunch and the food, ambiance was great and it wasn't noisy at all .
I came back the next evening with 3 additional guests and it was so loud, we couldn't have a conversation without yelling at each other. This was very bothersome as the whole point in getting together was to catch up. We ordered a drink and guacamole and left within an hour. Too bad as we would've loved to stay longer and try the food but it wasn't conducive to talking at all.

Food and cocktails were as good as always. The Server was in a different world. Service was the worst it’s been there ever. But we will always come back. Can’t beat the prices and quality of the menu.

Excellent service! I wish I knew our server’s name to commend her - she was awesome!

All of our tacos were fabulous. Between the five of us, we enjoyed a good variety - grilled tilapia, steak, beef and chicken.

Table-side guacamole was fresh, but needed more salt and lime for flavour. The salsa was good but would try something different next visit.

The drinks were delicious. I had the chili coconut margarita, suggested by our server, and it was excellent.

Would definitely return!

Food was pretty good, but not as good as in past visits (esp the tacos). Service was meh - slow, distracted, and insincere. Table was small and uncomfortable and I spent most of the meal trying to make our food fit on the table. It was a special occasion and it didn't measure up to my hope for the meal.

I normally really enjoy my time at Anejo. I was very unimpressed with this visit. Our server took forever to even come and greet us. Took forever to come and take our food order. Did not run our drinks or food and barely checked on us. I am a server so I know he only had a few other tables. When we finally flagged him down when we were finished and asked for the bill he never came back for us to pay. I do know he had just gotten a table of 8 at the same time so fair he was busy however he really seemed uninterested in making our experience at all inviting. 15 minutes after receiving our bill and waiting to pay we had to search someone down to pay. It was very disappointing to celebrate my birthday there. I'm not sure I will go back.

Went for my fiancé’s birthday. We had a table for 11. The service was good but the CHAIRS were awful. I actually have a bruise on my one leg from where the seat was cutting into my leg. It was so uncomfortable and make it really unpleasant to sit and chat for long.

On the plus side everything always tastes good!!

Happy hour special is great. Half price tacos and $6 margaritas. The margaritas are fantastic. Loved the cucumber cilantro one. Food was decent but we were brought the wrong order initially and then when the new one arrived that wasn't quite right either, but we just left it at that point.

A favourite restaurant of ours! Food is really good especially the at your table made Guacamole! The only issue it’s it really busy, and the tables are SO small. A table for 4 is more a table for two, so you have to place things on the bench beside you. Great for casual, friends getting together, great margarita’s and really great and friendly service.

I got made to order guacamole and it came out looking amazing but had onion once the server started mixing it. He noticed right away and went to get a new one but someone else brought the new one out and the presentation was meh compared to the first one and he wasn’t as entertaining while he mixed it. Then the fish tacos came out and they weren’t great the fish was sooooo salty. Probably will go back for drinks but won’t be craving the fish tacos ever.

My husband and I had a very nice time at Anejo and this restaurant is quickly becoming our go to date night spot. This Saturday night we arrived for HalfyHour and enjoyed a few margaritas and tacos as well as the guacamole! The food was fantastic and the margaritas never disappoint. The guacamole made fresh in front of us in the molcajete is a great experience and so tasty.

The smallest, tiniest downside was that the restaurant was a little cold and the service a little slow. Slow service is understandable because of HalfyHour special and the restaurant was very busy.

Looking forward to the next time we go. Thanks Anejo.

I would have loved to give Anejo a much higher rating than I did because there were many positives to our experience but there were some pretty major problems as well. While the guacamole and salsa were outstanding (I would go back and just order this item!), it would have been better had the chips been freshly made and served hot. Also, several items we wanted to order were not available due to "an upcoming change to the menu", which makes no sense. We also tried to order two different kinds of beer that were listed on the menu but those, too, were not available. And unfortunately, our second choice for a main course was not very good: it was under seasoned and had a one note flavour. On the up side, besides the delicious appetizer (did I mention that the made-table-side guacamole and salsa were DELICIOUS!), I loved that there were vegetarian options and items that could be made gluten-free and lactose-free.
