Always perfect service, food and atmosphere. Made for a great “last supper” before the world shut down again.

Pigeonhole is in a cool location (very easy to park, which is nice when on 17th ave) and a nice atmosphere. We went on a quiet Sunday night, but the restaurant slowly filled up to create a bustling, yet not overwhelming, atmosphere. Our server, Justin, was extremely accommodating and we were even served some free shots on the house as a result of the bar experimenting with some new items on the drink menu (root beer and rye shooter and a boozy chai masala milkshake shot, both of which were delicious and strong enough to make a gal tipsy). We ordered the broccolini, butter leaf salad, chicken schnitzel with smokey mash, and the soufflé pancakes with duck confit... we gobbled up everything. The soufflé pancakes took a little while, but Justin came over to tell us the chefs weren't satisfied with how they turned out and did them again for us... this showed a level of professionalism and perfectionism that is likely the reason why Pigeonhole is in the top 10 restaurants in Canada. Everything was delicious, but an extra shoutout to the duck confit pancakes (worth the wait) and the butter leaf salad. Lastly, this restaurant is reasonably priced considering the quality of food and service. It doesn't have that sense of entitlement reflective of their impressive ratings, which is refreshing and down-to-earth. In this sense, it really feels like an Albertan restaurant - high standards without being stuffy and casually being an extraordinary little nook on the outskirts of 17th.

The food was creative, delicious and inviting. The service was outstanding. Our pasta dish was a couple of minutes delayed (we hadn’t even noticed to be honest) and we were comped aperitifs and a side dish. Great music, killer cocktails, I can’t recommend this place enough. Run don’t walk.

Food was delicious, the service was great, it was a nice time out, the staff was really nice and accommodating :) very cool to have an open kitchen concept to view the chefs at work (coming from another chef).

Everything was clean & was a friendly environment :) Thanks Pigeonhole!

The most exceptional service I’ve ever received at a restaurant!!! Justin Scott was so attentive, went above and beyond at every opportunity to make our birthday celebration memorable and it is an occasion we will never forget. Food was insanely amazing. From multiple cocktails and shots to the insanely delicious starters and steak frites and the peanut butter dessert, everything was SOOOOO GOOOD!!! 10/10 would recommend to anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He even went next door to model milk to get our friend a dairy free dessert - like how thoughtful is that?!?! The answer is so thoughtful.

Had a great experience! Justin was an amazing server, he was very attentive. I was on a bit of a time constraint and he got our food to us quickly and we even got a bit earlier than we thought, which was great. Every staff member that came to our table was pleasant and personable. The food was amazing and everything we had, we enjoyed!

Went for a family member’s birthday and had the local dinner special with 3 courses. Fries were a bit salty but the portions were good especially considering the price. LOVE the hotdogs.

My boyfriend and I had such an amazing experience at Pigeonhole. Our server was attentive, and we actually had several other servers or staff drop off food, drinks, and refill water, which really shows that the staff there is so attentive. I loved the vibe there too, with mellow music that wasn't super loud but still set the ambiance. Everything we ate was incredible too, and I can't wait to come back! @youwannaeatwithme on Instagram for more foodie goodness :)
