    Great brunch spot. Small brunch menu, but food was great. Service was quick and did not feel rushed at all.

    My friend and I both had the full breakfast bunch. My over easy eggs were overcooked but otherwise the meal was excellent. Super enjoyed the coffee and I forget what was in it but very nice and 2 glasses of the Reisling hit the spot. I will return.

    We had an amazing dinner. Great ambiance, the food was absolutely delicious - every single dish we tried- and Gabriel is a true gem. His service was fantastic, and the cocktails were to die for. Thanks for making our special night even better :)

    Generally speaking I don't like cabbage.... the charred cabbage we ate on the menu tonight was incredible and one of the best dishes we had... We were a party of four and our host for the evening led us through an incredible taste experience. The service was incredible. Wine list is full of very high quality carefully selected affordable wines. We have told our friends about this place and will definitely be back in the near future.

    The food was average. My meal came out luke warm, and seemed to lack any type of flavour. My husband had the schnitzel and really liked his meal. I had the chicken Parmesan burger. They had amazing French fries, but I don’t think we will go back again

    Have not been to Pigeonhole for years. The service was excellent. Impressed that they change plates and cutlery after each serving of food. That was very nice. Cocktails were nice and tasty. Food was very good. Was nice to experience Pigeonhole again after all these years

    I love this restaurant but was really disappointed by my experience this time. Staff didn’t bring salt and pepper out with the breakfast meal (eggs) so I had to go ask. The server I asked proceeded to go to the host stand and sort menus (did not talk to another guest) before getting the salt and pepper. By the time the eggs arrived they were cold. And had a shell in them. On the ambiance, the lilac festival was on and the music stage was right outdoors. This was fine but the restaurant didn’t turn off the inside music so there were two, loud, competing playlists playing the whole time which was really annoying.

    The menu is disappointing.. it was hard to find many inspiring dishes on the menu. Music was terrible and really loud on patio.. like industrial beats.. strange and really off putting for dinner. Our waitress was tapped and basically had no time and very little interest in helping us navigate a menu that is a bit uninspired.0

    Please update your menu for the restaurant - I almost canceled the reservation due to not seeing a certain item on the menu (cabbage).

    Steak tartare was unreal. Really enjoyed the steak frites too and the cocktails were a pleasant surprise. Service was super solid but I thought the music was a little loud.
