Food was amazing! Must try beef tartar. Loved the decor and music. Staff were welcoming and knowledgeable. Daily buck a shuck was the reason we went but we ended up trying quite a few other items and all of them were delicious. A little on the pricey side, $4 for a plain Soda Water, $22 for 5 dumplings, but besides that everything was great! Would recommend and return for sure!

Very disappointed to show up for my reservation to find out the restaurant was closed for a private function, especially since I had been asked to confirm I was going the day before. A heads up would have been nice.

Came for the YYC dining promotion which encouraged us to try something new. Enjoyed the decor (historic building that was kept mostly original) Liked the variety of food and was OK with family style serving, but not all were. The menu does not really describe the food the way it comes out looking, which is much better than it sounds . Prawns too salty but otherwise very tasty. Portions seemed small but left feeling full. I did not appreciate the loud music and when they turned it up even more I could not wait to leave. If I want loud music I will go to a night club. We came to visit with friends over dinner so was difficult to have a conversation. I did not appreciate the first table, one foot from the cooking area. they really should put up a glass wall between the seating area and cooking area. If I leave smelling like I did all the cooking and after sitting so close to the cooking are that I could stir the food, well I may as well stay home and cook...

Great food tapas style, wonderful wine experience.
A bit hampered on the dessert style wines and scotches, but very reasonable and transparently resolves.
Reasonable and ever changing background music, unique preparation of food dishes

Had the chefs tasting, although appetizers were a little heavy handed on salt, main proteins (shrimp) and entree were both delightful.
Service was amazing as usual, thus the 5*.
$12 for a drink was a bit overwhelming, so we opted to go with a second dessert, both the warm Madeline and panna cotta were the perfect finish of the night.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday on Friday March 8, at Pigeonhole and had a delightful evening. Our waiter Justin, was fabulous. He was helpful and knowledgeable. He was right there when we needed him and was aware of our needs without us having to look for him. The food was delicious and provided s unique dining experience. We will definitely go back,

Our first to Pigeonhole won’t be our last. Fabulous first meal, from the wine, to our selections, to the order and pace of the delivery of the dishes; everything was on point. Emma was excellent at helping with dishes for 4 people. Loud, chatty and energetic, but we enjoyed that! Will bring more friends again.

Music was very loud, drinks were not refilled promptly, and I should mention the place was not busy. When I handed my coat to the server she decided to turn my coat upsidedown and empty the pockets.
2 vegi dishes we ordered were okay. Then we ordered the lamb and the pork. Both were inedible. The lamb was extremely oily and lacked flavor, the pork was mostly fatty gristle and cooked to a rubbery consistency. Couldn't even cut it with my knife.

Great food and service. They have buck-a-shuck oysters every day now. We also tried the cabbage (amazing), beef tartare (good, but comparable to others) and the lamb (good, but wouldn’t get it again). Would like to go back to try other dishes. Beers are a good price ($5), cocktails are expensive.

Excellent.
I came in with my girlfriend for a nice night out for the first time in a few weeks on Wednesday. We both work in hospitality and rarely get the same nights off so we're very picky about where we go. We came here on a referral, and will be returning without a doubt.
Lucked out on the features of the night - 1/2 priced wine and 1 dollar east coast oysters to get the night started! Justin was our server, did an excellent job breaking down the menu and great service overall. We left the decisions for wine and food pairing up to him along with the timing of the meals. Everything went very smoothly and the dishes were fantastic. (Especially the Burrata)
Thanks for the excellent evening! - Kyle
