Jenna’s Review:

It has been said that Pidgeon Hole is one of the greatest restaurants of our time, and after trying it for ourselves, I didn’t disagree. It is located on 17th Ave right beside a CrossFit studio which gently reminded me that my priority of eating mass amounts of food instead of working out was still going strong.


As 17th Ave often promises, the inside was about as hipster as one can get in the best way possible. Walking in there was a mix of wall paper, brick, white walls, and a record player that played music throughout the restaurant. It was eclectic, fun and the tables and settings were very quaint.

Food wise, I was blown away. Every item we had was joy in my mouth and I would order it all over again. To start we had the Cabbage and Chicken Dumplings and the Confit Duck Leg. Wow, just wow. I feel like I won’t even go into detail because I can’t describe how scrumptious both dishes were, particularly the duck. Just try it and thank me later.

For the main course we had the 23oz. Braised Short Rib which comes with lettuce wraps, some of the tastiest naan type bread and a sauce that was epic. I would come back just for this dish because it just did it for me. The hoisin type sauce on the short rib just screamed flavor and the various pairings for the meat just hit all the right spots.


If you decide to go try it out we would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below as well as some of the dishes that you tried that we should give a chance because I am more than willing to go back and peck at some more food.

Mike’s Review:

I was late on the review so mine had to come second for this review… but you know what didn’t come in second… Pigeon Hole


I was not a huge fan of the ambiance, it felt a little like I was walking into my grandmothers house, but Jenna loves this vibe so it worked for the evening.


The appetizers were far and away absolutely amazing! We shared a the braised short rib and it was delicious, but I was a little taken aback by the bill, however considering the location on 17th Ave it was a little more justifiable.

It was really neat that they were playing from a record directly beside me…

Overall not my most detailed review… but maybe it just wasn’t as memorable a meal as I wanted it to be?! I mean I remember the bread being off the charts?
