    Mostly small plates. I had the special which was a duck breast. The outside was cooked perfectly. The inside was overdone for my liking, almost no pink

    We had a great time at Pigeonhole for my wife’s birthday. The food was fantastic and the service excellent. We found the HardRock playing was a bit on the loud side and a really interesting choice of music for dinner service. Other than a quick happy birthday from our server, no mention was made about my wife’s birthday, not that it’s expected but always nice. I wouldn’t plan another family supper here but my wife and I will definitely be back for date night.

    The scallop was definitely amazing. The pomme puree was salty for our taste but might good for other ppl. The last thing was main course steak, a bit surprised because of way too much French fries. It looks I ordered the whole plate of French fries instead of steak.

    Good food as per usual. Pretty cramped seating even tho half of the restaurant was empty. Better planning post covid might be to spread people out a bit. We shouldn’t be jammed into a section just because a designated server is on at that time. No AC was on initially and we were sweating and very uncomfortable. Asked the server about this along with other tables and she just said the system is old and didn’t even check as it wasn’t even on and another server took the initiative to check. Poor feedback was given with inquiring about the oysters on the menu. I don’t like to criticize but there shouldn’t be the expectation of accepting poor service just because there is a labour shortage. Things are also more expensive to the customer so we should have the value in the money we spend.

    First pigeonhole experience!! Was blown away with the quality of the food, the service the cute decor inside and the location was perfect right on 17th Ave downtown. My sister and I dined here this evening and got the scallop crudo, mushroom croquettes, and ricotta dumplings (don’t ask me to pick a favourite) they were all so delicious! We finished it off with a deconstructed lemon meringue pie for dessert. Our server was so friendly and we tried all of her recommendations! 11/10. Thank you!

    Pigeonhole is one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary, phenomenal service and quality of food. Every time I'm in town, I make an effort to go there for at least the charred cabbage.

    It was our first time dining at Pigeonhole. We had an amazing evening with Justin as our server. He was most helpful and showed up at the right time every time. Suggested items from the menu that worked well together. Everything we had was delicious. And the cocktail selection was great. I loved the names of each cocktail! Will definitely be back.

    My friend and I both had the full breakfast bunch. My over easy eggs were overcooked but otherwise the meal was excellent. Super enjoyed the coffee and I forget what was in it but very nice and 2 glasses of the Reisling hit the spot. I will return.

    Generally speaking I don't like cabbage.... the charred cabbage we ate on the menu tonight was incredible and one of the best dishes we had... We were a party of four and our host for the evening led us through an incredible taste experience. The service was incredible. Wine list is full of very high quality carefully selected affordable wines. We have told our friends about this place and will definitely be back in the near future.

    The food was average. My meal came out luke warm, and seemed to lack any type of flavour. My husband had the schnitzel and really liked his meal. I had the chicken Parmesan burger. They had amazing French fries, but I don’t think we will go back again

    Have not been to Pigeonhole for years. The service was excellent. Impressed that they change plates and cutlery after each serving of food. That was very nice. Cocktails were nice and tasty. Food was very good. Was nice to experience Pigeonhole again after all these years

    I love this restaurant but was really disappointed by my experience this time. Staff didn’t bring salt and pepper out with the breakfast meal (eggs) so I had to go ask. The server I asked proceeded to go to the host stand and sort menus (did not talk to another guest) before getting the salt and pepper. By the time the eggs arrived they were cold. And had a shell in them. On the ambiance, the lilac festival was on and the music stage was right outdoors. This was fine but the restaurant didn’t turn off the inside music so there were two, loud, competing playlists playing the whole time which was really annoying.

    The menu is disappointing.. it was hard to find many inspiring dishes on the menu. Music was terrible and really loud on patio.. like industrial beats.. strange and really off putting for dinner. Our waitress was tapped and basically had no time and very little interest in helping us navigate a menu that is a bit uninspired.0

    Please update your menu for the restaurant - I almost canceled the reservation due to not seeing a certain item on the menu (cabbage).
