    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner date at Pigeonhole! We went for our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised with everything from the attentive service to the outstanding food and incredible ambience. We left with full bellies raving about the entire experience from appetizers to dessert. We will absolutely be coming back and sharing great reviews with our friends and family too.

    Everything was just great enjoyed the food and the place itself. Sat at the bar had a very nice and helpful bartender serving us. No complaints. We were in a bit of a time crunch trying to get to the Philharmonic so perhaps a bit rushed. Will certainly return.

    Wonderful staff, cannot stress this enough. They're so kind, caring, and really knowledgeable. They aren't kidding when they say there is something for everyone there. Hotdogs to caviar... Strongly recommend the scallops and the maple cake. I'm going to be dreaming of those for a while!!!

    Our first visit - food was awesome - especially the crab melt and pork belly! Service was great. We noticed an energetic vibe as soon as we arrived - although it was loud, it was fun. Would definitely go again.

    I’ve been to pigeonhole a couple of times and really enjoyed the food. We had two dishes we hadn’t had before. One was the burrata. The burrata itself was nice, but of course it is a very bland cheese so typically quite a bit of attention is put into seasoning and other flavours. The walnuts were wonderful, but the excessive amount of olive oil added nothing to the flavour. I actually thought it was honey in the bottom of the dish and dipped my bread in it and just ended up with olive oil on the bread. With some seasoning or other flavour it would have been quite nice. The other dish was the duck and the duck itself was cooked nicely but was very salty and the mashed potatoes were like paste - very gummy and the gravy extremely salty. We didn’t eat much and our server noticed and took it off the bill which was appreciated but of course would have enjoyed the meal if it wasn’t super salty. The beef tartar, shrimp cocktail and mushroom croquette were absolutely delicious as always! Looking forward to the next time!

    It was cold in the restaurant while only about -6 outside. Service was excellent. Bibb salad and scallop crudo were fine. Salmon and steak frites were very good. Recommended wines were average. Good experience but not quite the upscale nor foodie dining experience I was hoping for.

    Fantastic restaurant - service was top notched! Food came out quick and tasted amazing! Would recommend if you are in Calgary and are looking for a great meal and service! Also, shout out to Gabe, who made the experience fantastic! He went out of his way to get to know my friend's drink preference and made a custom drink for her, which she loved!

    The service here was phenomenal! That was my favourite part. We were really excited to try here because of all of the reviews. Unfortunately, the food we got was bland and under seasoned, lacking the flavour expected. We had grilled cabbage, ricotta dumplings, tartare, and burrata. Each one was under-seasoned and lacked depth of flavour. Perhaps it was just our dishes, but both of us noticed the same thing. With that said, however, we really enjoyed the atmosphere, the ambiance, and the service. The portion sizes were great for sharing which we really enjoyed as well
