We went to Pigeonhole for a business dinner, one of us having celiac disease. Either the menu does not accommodate this diet or the waiter was not certain of the options for someone with celiac disease. All in all the meal was disappointing as I have been to Pigeonhole before, and it was much better in the past. It was too noisy to talk and we left with dry throats.

I really wasn't happy with the greens and feta small plate - it was way too salty. I had to ask 3x to get the music turned down as it was sooooo loud. The pork was awesome though. The server suggested 6 small plates between us . We had 3 and no room for dessert. 6 would have been excessive.

All the food was really delicious. The service was a little bit slow but it was a busy Friday night. Food portions are really small for how much you pay. Overall a good dining experience but a bit on the pricey end. I would reserve for special occasions

We had a delicious meal with guests visiting from out of town. We were all impressed with the food, it was amazing with lots of variety. It was also fun to be able to share and try a number of different items off the menu. We even received a couple of menu items on the house. Our server was excellent and really made the entire experience one of the best every.

Really loved everything about this place; amazing food, ambience, and staff. We made a last minute reservation and got a spot at the bar, which suited us very well, we loved being in the middle of all the energy and activity. The food is great for sharing, we chose about 4 plates for 2 of us, but wish we could have gotten the full menu.

While we were here for the Summer Feast YYC event, I definitely want to go again to try more of their dishes. I liked that everything was served home style and all of the dishes were well seasoned and balanced. The server was very courteous and knowledgeable absout both the food and wine list. We were there during a busy time but had no troubles maintaining our conversation. A very friendly, laid-back atmosphere there.

While the portions were smaller (scallops) than expected and for the price, the food is delicious and service was excellent. The dishes aren't a complete meal so we spent more than intended to flesh out the menu. Alittle too close table-to-table for intimate conversation. Quite loud but overall very enjoyable.

Fantastic dinner. Inventive and well-balanced dishes. Loved the 72 hour pork belly, the cod and the shish chicken with hummus. The peas with burrata and toast and seasonal veggies with goat butter were awesome too. Friendly uninvasive service. It was a loud spot, but we really enjoyed the meal.

Heard about the reviews and menu, so we made a reservation. Nice atmosphere with all of the staff helping to serve the dishes, so the focus on food is unmistakable. Nice to hear about the building and vision of the chef. We tried two dishes each for a group of three. We had a nice mix of dishes: the charred cabbage was outstanding, wagyu beef tartar, scallops, charcoal chicken shish and grilled shishito peppers were tasty and unique. The portions were smaller, but we were satisfied after these items. We had two items for dessert and a nice bottle of red wine, so the evening was very enjoyable.
Would recommend it if you want to splurge!

Ben behind the bar was very knowledgeable and he created some of the cocktails! His suggestions were bang on!! Matt the manager took time to greet us with complimentary bubbles!! He helped us plan the rest of our night and we would recommend pigeonhole! A quick chat with Matt really makes the experience unique cause he catered to our evening at the restaurant and had many suggestions afterwards!!

We've been to Pigeonhole many times before, and it NEVER disappoints. They revamp their menu all the time, so there are always new dishes to try, their staff are AMAZING - friendly, personable, attentive and VERY knowledgeable about both their food and wine menus - and it is just a wonderfully fun, classy/casual place.

LOVE this restaurant.
