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!

Dining at The Pigeonhole is always a wonderful experience for my husband and I. The food is outstanding-of perfect proportion, and consistently delicious. The restaurant is gorgeously decorated and the service is prompt and timely.

Awesome food and service.
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!

The breakfast menu for the YYC Food and Drink EXP has 6 different items and shared all courses with my friend to rave reviews! The food offerings were done to perfection showcasing why it is one of Calgary’s top brunch places! Service was spectacular with a team of attentive of servers!

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.

We made a reservation but got counter seating which is the one looking out the window to the funeral home ... the chairs were extreme uncomfortable so I had to request a cushion (they didn’t have any) but our server got us a couple of table cloths to put on the chair. I appreciated her effort.
The food was average. My friend and I didnt enjoy the fish dish, and I found the pork belly quite chewy.
Cocktails were ok. I am not sure I would want to come back.

Server wasn't overly great but wasn't a reason to not go again. She was just kind of scatter brained and didn't know the drink menu. The food was good except the Manitoba Walley which didn't have much taste beyond the fish. I also found it quite a bit more expensive then ten foot Henry. $60 more expensive for 4 adults. Overall though good alternative when ten foot is booked solid.

Showed up to our reso about 3 minutes before 5pm. The doors were still locked and the staff stood there talking and staring at us in the freezing cold snow. After waiting for what seemed like awhile, we had to go back to our car to warm up because the door was not unlocked. If I’m spending $250+ , it is discouraging to start a meal like that.

We had such a wonderful dining experience with MacKenzie as our waiter. I have eaten at the Pigeon hole for dinner but had not realized it was open for breakfast. The food was to die for, we enjoyed the soft scrambled eggs with mushrooms, the special pancakes and croque madam. I can’t recommend this place more for brunch, it’s delicious. We will be back.

My new go to for a unique brunch that's delicious and different than a more 'diner' styled brunch you could get anywhere. I like that the portions aren't too big, so that you can share and get a taste of a few things but not be over stuffed. Also, you can never go wrong with $5 mimosas! I'm a Concorde employee but this review is not biased! You guys kill it every time!

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we will certainly be back. Food was delicious with various flavours and ingredients and served family style for sharing and trying multiple dishes. There was added whimsy in the multiple different eclectic china plates we were eating from. Would like to recommend to the restaurant however to review their music offerings in that the tracks were not volume matched (some were extremely loud), but overall took away from our experience and being able to converse with one another.

We sat at the bar and found the bar staff to be very friendly. The food was very good. The cheddar gougeres were delicious! The shrimp popcorn, tagliatelle and madeleines were also very good. Only thing I’d suggest would be better wine by the glass options.
