Sad the menu for brunch has changed and it’s now just a general menu. It was still good, but it was definitely better when they had more brunch options. Service was great, cocktails were also really good. We will still be back just probably not for brunch!

We stopped at Pigeonhole on a whim to end our night on Saturday and we are so glad we did. The staff was knowledgeable and amazing, the food was outstanding, and the wine list was perfect.
We left feeling very loved and taken care of!
Pigeonhole was seriously the highlight of our trip! It was our first time there and definitely will not be our last. It will be a must stop every time we go to Calgary!
Thank you to EVERYONE there. You made our night perfect!

Everytime we’ve been to the pigeon hole we’ve had an amazing time. Good and service are amazing. They used to serve more shared plates, which we loved and I thought the menu looked a bit less appealing on our last visit, but as always the service was amazing and we left as happy as ever.

Amazing evening! The new menu is truly excellent, it is such high quality, interesting, beyond tasty + innovative. We loved every dish we had, mouthwatering, beautiful presentation and great timing. The cocktails are so amusing and the flavour profiles are unique and exciting. Delicious! The vibe is perfect - funky, fun + easy going and the service, whoa, exceptional, Justin - you are such a pro! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, such a wonderful experience amidst these crazy times. Definitely making this a habit!

Love your restaurant, your food and your vibe, we are young inner city dwellers but last night the aggressive rap was unbearable and way too loud. Really was not a great experience and won’t be back until we are confident that pigeonhole has figured out their music lineup and brand experience.

We didn’t get a table right away with our reservation but the staff accommodated for that and went above and beyond. We have only been out together once since our son was born and then corona happened so this was our first real outing. I felt really valued and taken care of. I will happily recommend and return anytime we can. Thank you for making a wonderful occasion.

Quaint, cute environment! Portion sizes were quite small for the price. Our server said the gnocchi would be shareable, but I would argue
it was only enough for one person

Overall the food was delicious and the experience was comforting!

We were going for YYC experience but we couldn’t participate because 1 out of the 3 of us wanted something from the regular menu. We were just told it was all at the table or none???
Would like to know the reason and we’re disappointed because that was the reason we went to pigeonhole.

Tried it as part of the YYC Restaurant event. Appetizers were incredible (esp the wagyu beef tartare), mains were okay (pork belly was fine, fish was over done) desserts were amazing. (Madeleines and a chocolate torte).

Would love to go back to try other menu items!

The food was amazing! We had the set menu which included everything, instead of having to choose! Only counter seating, right under a vent which wasn’t the best. But the server was really nice and and the food was awesome! Can’t wait to go again!

Seated almost immediately.
Food came out quickly
Ambiance was great
My baja Rosa drink was amazing
Their chicken and sauce was very flavourful
I liked the ambiance and to be able to look out onto the street while eating a meal by candlelight

My fiancé and I were celebrating BOTH our birthdays. I left a note about this when making our reservation but it wasn’t acknowledged at all during our visit which was a bit disappointing. In the past, when I’ve celebrated a special occasion at other restaurants, it has typically been acknowledged in some way (either just verbally, or sometimes we’ve even been surprised with a complementary dessert). Otherwise, compliments to the chef! This was our first time visiting and the food was amazing!

We were out as part of the YYC Food and Drink Experience. This was the first time any of us had been to Pigeonhole. The food, served family style, consisted of two appetizers - a wagyu beef tartare and organic beets on a bed of ricotta - followed by three main course dishes - roasted pork belly, sunchoke falafel, and glazed cod. We added an order of charred cabbage and ricotta dumplings to round out the meal. The food was well prepared with great flavours. The cabbage and dumplings were a particular hit with our group. Dessert consisted of a chocolate tart with creme fraiche and warm madeleines with dulce de leche dipping sauce. Fabulous way to end the meal. Our server was excellent providing us with answers to questions about the meal, keeping our drinks topped up and offering a bit of history about the building/restaurant. All in all a convivial experience with thanks to the staff at Pigeonhole.
