I really enjoyed the small plate meals they had a great selection. The bar tenders were great at their craft wished I could have experienced more of their creations.

We had a great evening! Our server was phenomenal and so was the food. Our server guided our menu choices and did not disappoint!
Happening atmosphere though the music was a bit loud. Casual, not at all pretentious. There was four of us and we shared dishes. The bill was just over $300 including a round of cocktails and a bottle of wine. We were all so satiated by the end we had to take some food home.
Will be back!

Pigeonhole is excellent!! This time we sat at the counter. It was too noise. Music was quite loud and patrons were yelling at times. My husband didn’t care for the Tartare that much. We loved the doughnuts and the cabbage and the trout

My wife and I dine out a fair bit. We have heard and read about Pigeonhole from a few sources. Some overall mixed reviews, but most people said try it out. We did on Saturday, Nov. 3rd. The space is excellent, the music shifts throughout the evening and provides a good background with variety. The service was pretty good, it was very busy so the staff were as expected. The menu is short and really doesn't have a lot of variety. They are all earthy dishes with some unknown flavours and generally small plates that are not showing value for price. The thing we look for when dining is a good wine list. This wine list is not very good. We ordered two different bottles of wine, we thought ok, the first wine, which was a recommendation from the staff was not as described. The second was even worse.

I would not go back to Pigeonhole, nor would I recommend it unless you are only going for cocktails.

My wife and I visited Pigeon Hole last Friday. No special occasion other than a night out together, and we had a terrific meal. Our server, Lindsey, was wonderful, providing excellent suggestions from both the wine list and menu. Pigeon Hole's small-plate style of dining provides an opportunity to stretch your palate and try things you might not otherwise order in an entree-style setting. Everything we ordered was beautifully prepared, so much so that we had trouble afterward trying to pick favorites from the dishes we ordered. I'd have no problem recommending Pigeon Hole in pretty much any adult dining situation.

The food and table service were both quite good, though the food seems a tad overpriced for what you get. It's definitely not a baby-friendly location, and it feels quite "hemmed-in", for lack of a better phrase. My main complaint is that I made a specific request in my reservation to accommodate our baby, and they neither fulfilled it, told us in advance that they couldn't, nor apologised for the inability to do so. For this, I can't give them five stars, and I don't plan to return, though I can recommend it to others not with babies or young children.

Emily, our server was excellent. Very helpful finding menu items that were gluten and lactose free. She very efficiently accommodated the late arrival of two additional guests at our table.

The food was outstanding. Not your usual menu fare. Tried items I would not normally order such as grilled cabbage. It, and everything else off the menu, was excellent. I would highly recommend Pigeonhole. Quality does not necessarily come cheap, but here the meal was worth the price.

Eating at the Pidgeonhole is always a pleasure. The food is always quick and top notch with a massive variety and the ambience is ideal for any occasion.

Mitchel, our server was attentive and knew the menu inside and out. He added to an already exceptional experience.
