    We planned 90 minutes for dinner ahead of a theatre performance across the street. After we were seated it took almost 15 minutes for someone to come to the table to ask if we would like drinks. When she did come, we mentioned our time restraint to her (now 75 minutes), and placed our FULL order. Drinks came fairly quickly, but food was SLOW to come out of the kitchen. We'd ordered hot apps with Pigeon Salad mains. The timing between courses was LONG (waiting for salad). So we basically had to ask for our bills when we got our mains. It should be noted that our server was the ONLY one in the whole restaurant, which defintiely contributed to the delay. Also - a note about the Pigeon Salad - the pieces of lettuce were HUGE. Had to cut them to make them edible. And unripe, CRUNCHY avacado. And was filled to the BRIM, so every time you dug your fork into the bowl, bits of salad spilled over the top. This is my second trip to Pigeon. It's ok, but not great. There are definitely better options in this neighbourhood. Not sure I'll be back.

    Food was bland, drinks were okay. Service was not as friendly. Told us we only had an hour to eat, and asked if we wanted still or sparkling water while we were waiting for our table to be ready. We found that strange and made us feel that they needed the table quickly.

    It took 45 mins for the appetizers to come and 30 mins for the mains to come after that. Huge waste of time and money.

    We waited over an hour for food, no one came to check in on us. Had to go up to server to ask where our food was, to find out it wasn’t even entered. Food itself was in extremely small portions, we were all still hungry after. Not worth the price tag

    Came here for brunch with friends. The location was beautiful and the food was amazing. All three of us had some variation of their scrambled eggs dishes and the blueberry pancakes. Our server was polite and attentive without it seeming like she was trying to get us out of the Cafe. Would recommend if you want a simple and quiet place for brunch or just to grab a coffee!

    We were pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and efficient. My wife said it was one of the best salads, she had the Pigeon, that she’s had. The restaurant has a scenic bar and the tree in the middle gives it a feeling that you are in a meadow.

    The venue is stunning, and our server, ZyTh, was remarkable—her warmth, expertise, and spot-on recommendations added so much to our visit. The cuisine, with the beet burger as a highlight, was enjoyable, though I'd switch the waffle fries for regular ones next time. Definitely planning another visit, possibly for brunch.

    It was the worst brunch experience of my life. We waited for 45 mins to get our coffee and when it finally did arrive after several reminders, it was cold. We sent it back and waited another 20 mins for hot coffee. Food took an hour to arrive as well, which was only mildly hot, suggesting that the food had been prepared and lying in the kitchen for a few mins before it was brought out to us. Won’t be going here again.

    Overrated! Me and my friend ordered the Mushroom and Eggs toast and shared the onion soup. The portion was really small, we got one toast of the mushroom and one poached egg with four cherry tomato on the side for 21.5$ Unbelievable! The onion soup wasn't good, it was bitter. We sent the soup back. The only positive note was the smoothie we got. The value for money, it's not worthy! I'm not going to back.

    Menu options and food were great. The service was quite limited. It is not that we had any particular issue with our server, but rather the fact that there was only one server for the entire restaurant, which was full to capacity. This led to the service being suboptimal, because the server was spread too thin and took a long time to take our order, get us our food, and didn’t check in once on how our meal was going. Considering I had heard such great things about pigeon, based on its Montreal locations, I expected more from my first experience.

    The service was not good! We waited 40 mins for our food to arrive, and when it finally arrived it was cold! We asked the waiter to change and it took another 20 mins! The coffee was cold and then we asked for a piece of bread which took them 15 mins to bring it! It wasnt a good experience

    Honestly I'm not the type to criticize and even when I see comments about places I like to experiment myself But on the other hand the service I received yesterday was intense We waited more than 45 minutes to receive our coffee, more than 30 minutes to receive the main course I had my flight at 2 p.m. I even almost missed my flight, we were there stressing the waiter because it was late but at the same time I admit that that is not a problem of the waiter We ordered a drink we left we never received it There was just one server for more than 30 people, the space is too crowded, a waiting line when leaving we couldn't even get out because there were a lot of people at the entrance I'm still going to try the one in Montreal since I didn't know there was one there and I'm from Montreal But the food was still good I would not recommend it to someone who has an appointment or something else to do during the day
