Pre bridal shower brunch
Wonderful experience all round, perfectly prepared and presented. Easy parking, Server's mistake was compensated appropriately, can't wait to return when next in Calgary!!
I have heard lots about Pigeonhole. It always tops the lists of top YYC restaurants. Needless to say, I had some expectations. The ambience of the restaurant is rustic, industrial and low key. The cutlery is mismatched and flowery. Everything clashes but looks smart at the same time. The menu is limited and based around this concept of sharing plates. Thats said, portions are small. We were a group of 5 and ordered the peach and tomato salad, the eggplant pancake, the larb, the charred cabbage, rigatoni and the tagliatelle. For dessert, we had the warm madellienes and the choclate mousse. Out of this, all of us really liked the larb, eggplant pancake, the charred cabbage and madellienes. The pastas were fresh but rather bland and the tomato rigatoni was tart. Their service was absolutely terrible and food was very slow to come out. We had to wait a good 10 minutes between each dish. Most sharing plate restaurants are very quick with theor orders. Our server was sweet but not attentive at all.
One of the best restaurants in Calgary
Sat at the bar. Service was excellent, attentive and knowledgable. Food was fantastic.
Very inventive and interesting food overall. I think that next time we will order one more light dish to complement the richer ones. The peach and tomato salad was excellent. Service was wonderful - attentive and helpful. Would have given 5 stars if the food was less salty.
Very good brunch
Nice ambience, great food attentive servers. What's not to like?
What a neighborhood GEM! Loved this place! Great atmosphere, cocktails, food and service! The menu had many choices for the discerning foodie. I will be back very soon!
We sat outside, good place to people watch. We had 2 lovely fresh salads and the 2 specials, the pasta dish was particularly delicious. We would definitely go back for more !
One of the best restaurants in Calgary. Every dish I’ve had there has been amazing. Highly recommend!
A wonderful restaurant, great cocktails, fantastic comfort food and all for a very affordable price. And the service was stellar. Would come here again in an instant!
Best service in the city!
This is a little gem. We shared a bunch of plates and everything was so tasty. I am Celiac and most of the menu is naturally Gluten Free. We loved it!!!!
Fantastic service! Great cocktail! Perfect for girls night or girls night! 😊
Great food, service, and atmosphere but a little too loud to have a conversation without sparkly loudly.
Ordered almost everything on the menu for a large group and it was all delicious and ordered some more.
I'll be honest I used to love this place but it hasn't met my expectations the last few times. Menu is much more limited and taste for price seems to have changed. I really wanted to love it again this time but the dishes seemed a bit uninspired and lacking in flavour compared to earlier visits. Lamb was just dry, shredded salt flavour and was not the star dish we expected it would be. Will try again but with so many good options nearby I am hard pressed to keep choosing Pigeon Hole if this trend continues. Service was ok but they seemed a bit stretched as well.
Ben is the ultimate bartender and every member of your team has committed to excellence both BOH and FOH. Thank you
Service and food were amazing, as per usual!
Second time going back for brunch. Great vibe and the food is yummy.
Knowledgeable server, great staff, wonderful food... Just Like I Remember years back. Thank you for keeping up the quality of staff and food!
Prix Fixe menu was excellent. Wine per glass very expensive- $17/glass
Noise level way too loud- music was good but could be a lot quieter and enable a conversation at the table
Charred cabbage and beef tartar were my favourite. DELISH! Our server was great and on point with providing recommendations.
Food was excellent. Willing to accommodate our baby by switching our table.
Great food, very tasty and fresh and very attentive service. The restaurant itself was very cozy.
However, the only disappointment was the dessert. We have ordered two desserts; Madeleines with sauce and strawberries with cream. Madeleines were very dry and not very tasty, the sauce was just a plain caramel sauce, too thick for dipping (if that's what it was meant for) the fruit dessert was nothing special; too sour for my taste buds. Next time I will definitely skip the desserts. Highly recommend this place.
Excellent food and service!
We went for the Calgary Summer Feast and it was spectacular. The food was sooooo good! Ambiance was lovely and service was great. I will be back!
Earlybrid breakfast at Pigeonhole is my absolute favorite breakfast in the city! I took my mom here for the first time and she was blown away. Food, service and value was incredible. The pancakes are also phenomenal, a must-try if you’re doing breakfast!
Thank you to Brittany and the entire Pigeonhole team for the incredible service!❤️
Went there for breafast/brunch with my husband (celiac) and daughter. Everyone enjoyed what they had. My husband had the scrambled eggs, he said they were the best he's ever had! I had the egs benny, it was delish. My daughter had the BLT, she said it ok.... didn't have much flavour, after tasting it I would have to agree. Loved the decor and service was excellent. Will definitely be back!
Food was mediocre, service was borderline condescending and the music was loud everyone had to scream to hear each other.
We came for the summer feast and we were pleasantly surprised by everything. There was a bit of Asian fusion that we weren’t expecting and it worked very well! Highly recommend the charred cabbage. Cocktails were also very good, but somewhat expensive.
Great relaxing ambience with really attentive staff. Had the shrimp and grits + pancakes which came out quickly too. Really enjoyed the food- simple yet so comforting to the taste buds. Was already planning to come back as we finished. Extra points for the restaurant parking close by. A must visit for brunch.
We tried Pigeonhole for the first time during summer feast and we were so impressed right from the time we walked in. Very friendly and courteous staff, the ambiance is casual and preppy, food was absolutely delicious. They were really busy that night but the quality of service was still very good. We were seated at the bar and Benson (the bartender) served us - he only made the whole experience that much better with casual conversation, constantly checking in on us and to top it off, he also enhanced our food with different wine pairings for the Alberta lamb dish and the desserts - couldn’t hav asked for a better experience and we will definitely be back!
We came to pigeonhole for summer feast, the food was amazing! The service was great, our server was knowledgable and despite being quite busy took great care of us and given my dietary restrictions was able to accommodate some substitutions. As always the wine and cocktail list was a real treat! Every time we come to pigeonhole it is an excellent experience and this was no exception.
Wonderful food and service. Very accommodating for my gluten allergy.
A very pleasant experience. Left completely satisfied.
Great value: SUmmerFeast
Fantastic flavour combinations!:
Salads and mains!
Nice to be able to share and try everything!
Banana in the chocolate mousse was not good!.....we all felt the same.
Would we go back? Absolutely!
The Summer Feast menu was not really innovative as it was featuring existing items
We went to Pigeonhole for Date Night during Calgary's Prix Fixe event. We were very pleasantly surprised that we both were able to try everything on this special menu. Plenty of delicious food to try and share. I loved the casual atmosphere of this clean and welcoming restaurant. Our server was very good - attentive but not overbearing.
The only complaint that we have is that the music was way too loud for conversation and the type of music was annoying - more suitable for a club than a restaurant.
