WOW! What a find! The décor, the music, the ambiance, the staff, the food, the drinks – these are all what make this gem of a place my absolute favorite in Montreal! So much so that I even contemplated NOT sharing it with the world. Just so I can always find my spot, right there… next to the window!

I love the fish tacos. So tender! And the mango salad and corn esquite are spicy and sweet. Yum! The ambiance is great, too. You have to reserve to get a table, though. The place is always packed.

Excellent food & our servers were very friendly & helpful regarding the menu,. The complaints are a little minor - didn't appreciate waiting outside until 5:30. There were quite a number of other people waiting. I understand the opening hours are from 5:30 pm, but the doors could have still opened to let the patrons in. Any drink orders could wait until 5:30; I have been to other establishments and this was the procedure. We were all ok with it. We were told that we had our table until a certain time. We have no issues with this -- the restaurant is on the smaller side and you wouldn't want people to just sit and chitchat. We were ready to leave way before the deadline but we had trouble paying, as quite a few of your other patrons wanted to leave around the same time, and from observation there seemed to be only 1 handheld device for interac / credit card transactions. Perhaps another one should be purchased to facilitate the ease of payment. There were numerous people waiting to be seated and our table was quite desirable. Other than these issues, we were happy with the food.

We've been here twice now and did the special sampling both times. Wait staff is outstanding and so is the food. High energy and very noisy, so challenging to carry on a conversation, but worth it.

I feel very fortunate to be able to dine at this fine establishment. The service was top notch, and the food was incredible. My business associates complimented the food they ate several times. I enjoyed seeing my business associates happy and having a good time. The service was incredibly attentive, patient, and helpful - even while the restaurant was at full capacity. I'm definitely planning to go again.

Very pleasant staff, made sure everything was to our taste. Also made sure our vegeterian party had alternatives to all of the meals (special taco, cauliflower instead of the chicken wings, etc.). Very open to make menu changes when you take the group menu, as long as it's reasonable (we exchanged the Pork Ribs for the mushroom Quesedilla, best idea ever). It's a good choice for groups, it's our second year with them for our Christmas Work Lunch.

Always love my visits at Escondite Union! Wish every day was taco Tuesday lol Baja is my favourite and the new Toastadas are delicious addition to the menu. My corn bread wasn’t baked right so the waiter offered desert on the house! Now that’s what I call costumer service done right. See you soon guys and kudos on job well done.

Food was amazing, service was great. Cornbread was devine. Would be nice if there were some more options on the cocktail menu that weren't tequila/mezcal based. Thanks for the delicious dinner!
