Good service, nice place. The breakfast sandwich had extremely low quality ingredients and the
eggs were way too salty. Overpriced

Tonight’s dinner was outstanding. We ordered 6 items on the menu and each one was perfect. At many restaurants, I’ll think that only a handful of items were outstanding, tonight I’d rate each a perfect 4 stars. Given that we were celebrating several events, they provided us a free dessert; it was also delicious. Our server Lily was wonderful and made the evening throughly enjoyable. Can’t wait to go back!

Very enjoyable experience in terms of the food in the ambiance however service was a bit snippy. We asked for lattes with sugar but no spoon was brought. When I asked for one the response was ‘do you need anything else when I come back?!?’ In a very short tone. I’m not usually critical of servers and I know most of them work extremely hard but our waitress while efficient wasn’t exactly pleasant. Too bad because the food was excellent.

Service was good and consistent and our host managed to get us in early (we had a reservation) but we were in the city in advance of our reservation. He had no problem sneaking us in early which was very kind and the food was good!

Will recommend.

Came here for breakfast during the week. Super cute interior and loved the vibe inside! Our server was super friendly. The breakfast menu is fairly limited, but each item sounded great. I ended up trying the toast w/burrata and got a side of their sausage - both were delicious! I would definitely come back!

Breakfast was pricey for what it was. Scrambled eggs were a textureless paste. Gougeres were good. Unfortunate, as the decor was pleasant, with nice vintage touches, and the service was great.

My husband and I went to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. When I booked on open table it did warn me that we would be seated at a high table/bar seating which I accepted, but was rather disappointed to be placed right in front of the active wet station at the bar where the martini shaker was in constant use...it was a noisy and busy spot in an already bustly atmosphere so made it a bit difficult to enjoy our team together fully. On the positive side we were treated to a complimentary glass of bubbly and the food was amazing as always...just wished for a special occasion we might have had a little more space from the very active bar work. There are a number of high seats around bar and elsewhere around the restaurant but just be warned that if you get a reservation at one of these it may be right at the drink prep station.

Not only did they give extra attention to us for the special occasion, they even made space to accommodate a last minute guest that joined us.
Always such a great experience there. And food is consistently great.
Thank you!

Yes, It was a different food experience but would warn friends that they may not feel like they got enough to eat as most foods are small portions of veggies and meat.

The food was good, but not great. Pigeonhole has received so many accolades, we thought the food would be jaw droppingly good. One dish we had was, the fish larb, and the cocktails were fantastic, but the rest of the food, although good for sure, was not "wow". The flavours were nice, but too subtle. Some of the dishes were creative and unique, but in our opinion, that didn't make up for the lack-lustre flavours. The larb, delicious though it was, was no better than a good larb at some Thai restaurants. Next time we go, I hope to find the flavours bigger. Lovely night none the less.

Excellent from front of the house to back of the house. Only complaint is how loud the music was. Our server did take the volume down at our request which brought it to an endurable level. While I love the food and service, it may be that the ambience (music) will make me hesitate to come back as often. Who knows...the hollandaise and the rotis may win out over the loud music...

PS: LiLi is a fabulous server.

It was busy as it was Good Friday but we were sat right next to another table of two when there were lots of tables open around. Our server was fine at the start and then things went downhill. After giving us coffee and taking our food order she did not come back to see if we needed more coffee or anything else. The food came and we asked the expo if he could ring in a drink for my husband. He complied but after almost finishing our food it still didn’t come. When our server finally came back to see if our finished plates were good, we told her we ordered one a drink but it did not come so she went away to get one. When the bill came it had two ceasers rung in but we only got one. We explained this to her so she went to fix it. After looking more into the bill we saw that there were 2 prices for the ceasers, one was 8$ and the other was 10$. When she came back we saw that she kept the 10$ ceaser price and we were not impressed. We paid and left with an unfortunate bad taste in our mouths as pigeonhole’s service is usually great.

Portion sizes were a bit smaller than expected, but ordering 4 dishes for 3 people left us comfortably satiated. We were unlucky having planned this dinner the same day of a Flames game, and my friend’s car was ticketed as they didn’t pay close enough attention to the parking signs. The food itself was fantastic and super flavourful and inventive, interior’s comfortable and cozy, and the service we had was incredible. A bit noisy but very vibrant energy in the restaurant. I’d definitely come back for late night drinks!

Dinner for two. Table well set. Waiter very helpful with the menu, wine and good choices. Came by at the appropriate time intervals to refill our wine glasses and to check to make sure everything is going well. Popcorn shrimp and the "cheese bread" (can't recall its name on the menu) were my favouites. It is slightly more noisey than most restaurant but chalk it down as good energy. Would definitely come back.

Two senior-aged couples, trying different food experiences. Our only collective downgrade was the music volume....to the point where it detracted from the evening’s enjoyment. This, after we had asked if the music could be adjusted; our waiter, very pleasant chap, said it had been adjusted but his Manager “really was into” his music! One recommendation for potential patrons wanting to catch up with friends.... go to a quieter environment!! Despite the food and all of its magical tastes, this was a put off.
