  • Just sad...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/12/2014
    I used to be a huge fan of this restaurant, but it has really gone down hill. The new redesign is nice, but the food and service was awful. The staff was rude and unprofessional. Bad to the point where they were litteraly drinking tequila out of the bottle, screaming, blowing whistles and taking selfies while they acted obnoxiously. We had to ask them to keep it down... Really sad state to a restaurant that used to be a lot of fun. We were a group of 8 people, 4 of us got our meals and the others had to wait almost 15 minutes until their food came to the table. Needless to say, our food was now ice cold. Once we all had our meals, the waitress never checked in on us, not even to offer water. Just an overall terrible experience.

    The waitor was very unattentive. And it was especially unacceptable because everyone else around us was getting served (he appeared to know them personally) while we were ignored the whole time. The restaurant was also too hot and too loud. They were blasting club music and it was impossible to have a conversation. I can't even fairly judge the food because the ambiance of the restaurant was so irritating that I didn't feel like eating--and I'm not even a picky eater. I'm very easygoing when it comes to food and restaurants, so this is really saying something.

    Our experience wasn't amazing... we had made arrangements to hold a surprise party for our friend here. I made the reservations 2-3 weeks ago yet when we showed up, the table wasn't ready and we had to wait for half an hour to be seated, which meant we had to stall the birthday boy for another 30 mins... It also took them about an hour to even ask us for our food order- pretty slow for our drinks and it took another hour to get our food. Waiting two hours for our food, by the time we got it we almost weren't even hungry anymore. The staff is pretty polite which was a bonus I suppose. Overall, we understood it was busy because of Grand Prix but we still thought the overall experience wasn't worth it.

    Our reservation was not honored. I made the reservation 2 hours in advance for 5. When we arrived, we were told that they were too busy and could not accommodate our party.

    I used to go to this restaurant fairly often and always enjoyed the food, drinks and atmosphere, but this last time was absolutely terrible! The drinks all had 'spicy syrup' which overpowered my margarita, the quesadilla tasted like a frozen dinner, and on 2 occasions the waiter kept taking breaks and we were unable to get him to take our food/drink orders and bill. Very disappointed. The only good thing was that I got free cake because it was my birthday!

  • Without Their Discounts, Its Poor
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/21/2014
    I went to carlos and pepes for years when I lived in the area. It recently took away the daily discounts on beers, tacos, and fajitas. The quality of the beer and menu items did not change but the layout of the restaurant bar did. I would not go back because it was better and more crowded with the amazing $1 beers and tacos nights. I went last week and it was ok but hard to compete with its cost effective neighbours down the street. There was only one other table besides my table too.... It's good they are on OpenTable. Without their discounts and deals, they are going to need all the promotion they can get!

    We celebrated my son's birthday at Carlos and Pepe's (his favorite place), complete with sombrero, cake and sparkler on top. He loves the special attention paid to kids. The environment, even on a Saturday evening, is family friendly, though most diners were not families. New menu featured some interesting Mexican food combinations and as always a wide drink selection. Food is good (as far as Mexican food in Montreal goes), but we go for the atmosphere and great location right on Peel Street.

    This was my first time and not the last. Our waiter was really nice, he moved us to a different table when it became available (next to window). The service and food was great. The Margueritas were huge and good!

    Great Mexican restaurant in the heart of downtown Montreal. I've eaten almost everything on their menu & NEVER been disappointed . Also, I give a BIG star to all the waiters, they are charming without always being at your side. Love you guys!
