We were there on a Saturday evening -- along with every single other mile-ender between the ages of 25 and 30.
When we got there the place was full and we were asked to put our names down with our phone numbers to be called when a table would be available. We were given an estimate of a 30 minute wait time and invited to go across the street to Sparrow for a drink in the meantime.
Once seated, the large communal table was rather awkward; you're likely to brush butts with your neighbor just as much as you are to knock elbows while eating.
Service was friendly but that did not make up for the wait time to get 1) menus and 2) our tacos. We literally waited, starving, for an hour before our meal finally came after asking the waiter to check up on it.
Our meal was rather disappointing. I was excited that a taqueria finally opened up in Montreal, but these tacos were bland and simply do not compare to others that I have tasted elsewhere.
The decor was well thought out and noteworthy, but that may be the only redeeming feature and certainly not worth a repeat.
All in all, the wait time is what is going to kill this place if they do not get their act together. It doesn't make sense that a place with essentially one item on the menu can't keep up with the demand.
