Best brunch in town with a wonderful convivial atmosphere. Love it!
After experiencing hundreds of restaurants in my lifetime, I can confidently say that the food at Pigeonhole tonight was the best ever. The service was top notch, as well. Very attentive and sincerely cautious and helpful regarding multiple food allergies.
Despite the steadily climbing noise level (patrons as well as street noise from open window & door) and very high prices, I still give them 5 stars.
The quality of ingredients is there, the marriage of flavour is constant! Presentation is a difficult aspect as people share dishes but has room for improvement. The old English China used for the dishes is neat but does not match the odd rap music for my taste. Model milk is a better option for a calmer special occasion dining experience for the over 50’s. Nonetheless, the food is well prepared and the price is very reasonable for the food quality. Be back to try the brunch!
Great place. Lovely atmosphere. Food is fantastic as is the service.
Very delicious meal and lovely decor. Next time I’m in Calgary I will be going back!
The overall dining experience at pigeonhole was average.
The service was just okay, our waitress didn't take time to explain the menu or drinks to us. We had to ask questions in order get basic information. She seemed very busy, although the restaurant had lots of seating. We watch other tables get served in a timely manner, we wait at least 10 mins to be greeted and have our drink order taken.
We were there for an anniversary dinner (which was noted in the reso booking) so I feel we expected a bit more. The food was delicious, but overall we wouldn't dine there again.
This was a quaint spot for breakfast. The pancakes were delicious but a bit small so if you are really hungry add a side.
Service was great, food was outstanding. I mean, some of the smartest + best food I've had with a drink for a long time. Noise level was ridiculous, though-- I literally had to yell to be heard by my friend across a small table because the music was so loud. Excellent music, but way too loud. This is restaurant, right?
Great service with creative menu. Really nice evening with family
Delicious, nicely presented and great for sharing!
Pigeonhole is great for corporate meetings and casual gatherings. Lots of delicious sharing food and wine options and the atmosphere allows for great conversation.
The food is unreal, the service is top shelf. Favourite place to take a great date.
Every bite is a party in your mouth. I would like to just go through the whole menu. Calgary is lucky to have it.
Excellent food and service, the noise level was extremely loud. One table was over powering the restaurant...would have been nice if they were asked to turn the volume down.
Everything was lovely. I think that it would have easily been 5 stars, but my group could not easily have a conversation in a normal tone due to the noise level from the surrounding tables. I would highly recommend to larger groups. But possibly not for a more intimate group.
The food, service and decor are top notch. The Mealshare cabbage dish was a complete surprise and the showstopper of the meal.
We had a great evening with really good food that was different and interesting. The flavors were really amazing and tantalizing.
Our service was exactly how we like it: straight forward, no artificial talk, and also very informative as to how to best order the food. All around, we will definitely be back!
Sharing plates. We had Cauliflower, bean salad, lamb, pork belly, beef tartare, cheese puffs, dumplings, shrimp, and all three desserts. No misses. Impressive flavors. Great service. “Mmmmmmms” all around our table of four. Definitely a repeater!
We are regulars at Pigeonhole since it never disappoints! This time was no exception, since it was still exceptional... It was a bit busier (hence, a bit noisier) than our previous visits, but this did not detract from the quality of the food, wine and service. Top notch as always!
Phenomenal meal! We had the cabbage, the summer bean salad, and the char larb. Each dish was perfectly executed and full of flavor. We were worried the tapas sized portions wouldn't be filling enough for two of us, but it was surprisingly more than enough. Wine and beer selection was good, but try a cocktail as well. The bartenders know what they're doing. Service was wonderful. Ambiance is great. You can see the guys prepping in the open kitchen which makes for an energetic experience. If you're in Calgary, this should be on your list of places to eat.
Justin was awesome! As usual the food was great! See you next time!
Amazing brunch, killer vibe, excellent food. Cheap mimosas too if you’re there in the morning!
So great that we went back for brunch the next day which was also amazing! Service was efficient and friendly as well.
I absolutely would and have recommended Pegionhole to friends.
Excellent first time experience as we celebrated a birthday there. Service was prompt and efficient on all accounts. Relocated us to another table after the one we were at had a bit of a draft, a chipped glass was quickly replaced by another, and an extra dessert was complimentary. Food was outstanding and rich in flavour. An excellent date night with shared dishes of food between us. Highly recommend.
Love the atmosphere, wasn’t busy which was nice!!!
Food was really good, loved the eggs benedict
Great food, so unique and flavourful. Love the vintage serving plates. Ambience was lovely but the noise was unbearable when the room was full. Service was amazing.
Creative dishes and great flavours put together fantastically. Service and ambience added to the overall experience.
Fantastic, as always.
We enjoyed a lovely breakfast at the Pigeonhole. Good service, excellent espresso and very tasty food. A very funky and modern approach. Will be back again.
The food was great! We were a little disappointed by the dessert... But that was just in the long it took to come. Great place!
My boyfriend and I attended Pigeonhole for our dinner date night and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The service we received was excellent and we very much enjoyed the dishes we tried. The only thing that would have made it better would have been more options for removing dairy as most of the meals could not be substituted and my boyfriend is lactose intolerant. We were still able to try some very delicious plates despite his allergy though. The menu is quite expensive for shared plates but the quality is there.
We ate at the bar to celebrate our engagement and everything was wonderful - great food, drink, friendly service & wonderful fun atmosphere!
Outstanding. Food was delicious and service was superb.
We are in a quest to Try most of the restaurants in Canada’s top 100. Coming from Toronto and visit in Calgary often we’ve been able to hit a few of them. We really enjoyed pigeonholes unique menu creative cuisine, outstanding staff and wonderful share plates. No wonder this is rated number 29. This restaurant was a wonderful treat and we are glad we found you. We will definitely be back.
Although it is a pricier place to dine, the food was amazing. Would definitely recommend as somewhere to go when celebrating.
Great good excellent service. Will definitely go again!
The restaurant has really gone downhill since last year. One of the charms used to be the China they served everything on. Now it’s regular plates. And all of the food is either on or coated in a lot of sauce. Really takes away from the freshness of how food used to be served. Very disappointing.
All of the dishes we ordered were fabulous and generous in portion size. Our cocktails were equally delicious and we really enjoyed trying Orange wine! Our server Justin was generous, professional and very personable. We'll definitely be back!
Best service best food. What more needs to be said.
