Excellent brunch with friends. Came after hearing review on CBC Eyeopener - were not disappointed. Only thing missing was English Breakfast tea. Highlights were the gougeres, the smoked tomato benedict and the pancake soufflé.

I was so grateful for the wonderful young man at the front who allowed us to change seats. It was so freaking loud and I was so close to the tables next to me, I felt deeply uncomfortable!

The cuisine was original and delicious. I kept saying that this was the best dinner of my life! Our waiter could not have been nicer or more helpful. The entire evening was delightful! Whenever I comeback to Calgary, I will definitely be sure to dine here.

Went for a celebratory brunch (5 people) at 10:00am before attending The Bridal Expo. The food was excellent (I had the Country Ham Arepas Benedict), the Thyme Hasbrowns were especially delicious. It was quiet when we first arrived but steadily for busier but still quiet enough to enjoy our conversations. Highly recommended if looking for a great brunch 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.

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.

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.

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

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.
