Great service and great atmosphere. I also had one of the best negronies I've ever had and the bartender was kind enough to share the name of the vermouth. The food was good but not great - we had the cucumber, the beets, a pasta dish and the larb. The only one we really liked was the beets. We'll be back but likely just for drinks as it was a great place to hang out.

So yummy! It was my first time dining here. Our server was so professional and all the dishes were romanced properly. Also a ton of vegetarian options which was a pleasant surprise. I’ll definitely return.

We had a great time, the food was incredible, drinks were spectacular and Justin was easily one of the best servers we’ve ever had. He knows his stuff inside and out and could name each unique aspect of each and every dish and drink. Master of his craft.

Great food stupendous service!!!! Justin was spectacular, knowledgeable and friendly.

Grilled pork belly, Artic char Larb, and tartare were excellent. Indie rock of wine lists Peter wetter Pinot from Hungary was luscious....

Excellent food as usual. Love love the charred cabbage dish. Can’t wait to go back! The music was a bit loud, would be nice to have a quieter background. Would recommend a visit and order the charred cabbage!

Another great breakfast at Pigeonhole! One complaint is that the breakfast special is always served with the same Eggs Benedict. It's excellent, but after having it a few times I want to try a different Benedict. Also, the service is good but not quite as welcoming as when it first opened.
I went for dinner at Pigeonhole once and was underwhelmed, however. The food was good, I just wasn't thrilled with the menu or the value for the money. But if you're looking for a great breakfast, it's hard to beat Pigeonhole. By the way, their pancakes are like nothing else.

Food was AMAZING, but as others have noted the music is far too loud for a restaurant. An energetic atmosphere with music is great, but not when it overpowers the conversation at your table. Easy fix, but it seems there isn't a willingingness to listen to this feedback...
Can't say enough good things about the food. Can see why it's one of the top rated restaurants. The cabbage and crudo are fantastic.

This was by far the best steak tartare I’ve ever tasted, and to top it off had that best Egg Nog of my life. Wow, it was an incredible meal with excellent service. I was planning our next visit while eating!

It had been better in the past. The music was way too loud - definitely distracted from the ambience.
Wine selection is rather limited, no Merlot or cab sav choices by the glass.

I took a guest speaker to this restaurant. The cuisine was creative and delicious. The chai panna cotta was my favorite... All dishes were amazing. Not my first time, not my last. Well done, JL!

Food was great. Very tasty and great presentations. Particularly enjoyed the chicken schnitzel, tartare and cauliflower dishes. Good wine selection and interesting cocktails. Only downside is the noise. With the low ceilings it is likely somewhat noisy all the time. During our meal, there was a small party behind us that was extremely boisterous making it extremely difficult to talk at our table and dimming the enjoyment of our meal.

Our server went above and beyond by bringing us some suggested bubbly to enjoy with our caviar! Great restaurant with great food. Only downside for me is the tables were a little crammed together which makes for some awkward moments with people coming and going.

Loved pigeonhole! Went for a birthday dinner. Great ambience & delicious food. Waitress was great and knowledgeable on wine list. I highly recommend the ricotta dumplings and the chicken schnitzel. Yum yum!! Will definitely be back.

The food was pleasantly delicious, but not memorably so. For the price per item I was surprised by their amateur presentation and lack of originality (my regular, well-priced brunch restaurant is far superior). The room was decorated and furnished well, but the noise of the place was quite unpleasant for any couple wishing to speak; in fact, my Apple Watch recorded the decibels at an average of 83.
It was fine....just......fine. But considering two people spent $250, with three glasses of wine and a 15% tip included in that, I was disappointed indeed.

Best experience in Calgary by miles. I went solo and was wonderfully taken care of by three different members of staff. All the dishes were simple enough but had something special to take them to another stratosphere. Try the celery salad, it's the star.
