                                                          Great food! Went for brunch with a girlfriend. Had the tartare and was tasty! Good vegetarian options for my friend as well. It was a bit loud in the there but the decor and music was great! Looking forward to going back for cocktails another night.

                                                          The last time I was at Pigeon Hole, admittedly, a number of years ago I was blown away by everything. It has changed and not for the better. Don’t get me wrong, everything was fine, just not fantastic. The food was good (except for the gnudie) but not as inspired as I expected. With serious competition in Calgary, Pigeon Hole needs to find that spark again quick or remain a great memory of a once exceptional restaurant.

                                                          The food and service were very good. The only thing we did not care for was the very loud music which made talking very difficult. I don't like having to shout at others while having dinner. I would recommend this restaurant for those who enjoy loud music while eating. Otherwise, if you do not enjoy that, then I would not recommend this restaurant.
