    Worst customer service I’ve ever experienced in Mtl. They select they patrons they want to attend to. I was sitting at the bar and it took them over 35 mins to ask me what I wanted (mind you there was only 1 other person sitting at the bar and she was eating already), they were just chatting, laughing and being on their phones. I saw many people coming in to get seated and they were picking who they wanted to be kind to

    We love to go to Pigeon Cafe especially in Monkland. The new one in McGill we love everything except that our food took almost an hour to be served and it was not a hot meal anymore when I was served to us. The 2 staff members were so nice and accommodating. Coming back for sure but just disappointed with our food.

    Unfortunately, cannot recommend Pigeon café McGill. Took forever to get our order. Our poor friend got his plate almost at the end of our meal. His eggs were cold and his bagels barely toasted even though he specifically requested extra-toasted! Waitress was sweet and apologetic but clearly overwhelmed. Too bad…

    This was my 4th visit and this remains an amazing spot every time. Ambiance is great and its very clean. The staff is really nice and food is great. The Larry David sandwich is a must paired with the mimosas with fresh grapefruit. Special thanks to the team who held on to my shopping bag I had left behind, sincere thanks.

    Unfortunately the food arrived at the table at various times so some had to start eating while it was hot before everyone was served. Multiple items forgotten, many reminders to the server that some was missing. Potato salad just tasted awful- something bad in the dressing. French toast swimming in a literally pool of butter in the dish- half was inedible. Will never go back.

    While the decor is beautiful and servers were friendly, Pigeon Cafe is very overpriced - terrible value for both food and wine. They pour a very small glass of wine - it is actually quite shocking. Unfortunately I did not notice until later that we were charged for our salads and they were supposed to be included with the sandwich at lunchtime. I will not go back to this restaurant.

    Service très long malgré que nous avions réservé pour 11:30 afin d’éviter l’attente. Le serveur ne semblait pas avoir en id d’être là… Mon collègue a du demander 2 fois sa boisson, au final on lui avait chargé 2 fois…
