I love eating from this restaurant because of the high quality ingredients and imagination that went into creating the dishes. They do have smaller portions than your average restaurant but the quality of the food makes it worth it. Staff are friendly and I love...that the cutlery is made of bamboo and not plastic.More

Incredible food! Was recommended by our concierge to come here; they were spot on! The place is a cozy little rustic place within a beautiful courtyard. A true hidden gem. We tried a number of dishes and each one was better than the last. I...recommend everything on the menu. Topped off with some mimosas and coffees. The food, the staff, the location and the ambiance was absolutely perfect. Keep up the good work. 10/10 little piggies!More

I had heard just great reviews, so couldn't pass up the opportunity to have a lunch at Chez Piggy. It was a lovely day so we sat out in the patio. Unfortunately, we were pestered by wasps. Given the name of the restaurant, I wanted...to try a pork dish, but the waiter recommended the daily special (a thai salad with beef strips) sound mouth watering, so I tried it instead. The salad had great flavors. Unfortunately for me, the beef was tough. We also ordered their fries with garlic aoli dip, and although they were delicious, the fries were overcooked for my liking ( close to burnt). We had a delicious white wine with the meal. The service was excellent. I didn't get to see the bill, but having studied the menu, know it was over $60 for 2.More

Our experience at this lovely Kingston restaurant was perfect. Great wine and the two of us shared some fantastic PEI oysters to start. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection and the seared tuna salad was excellent. I highly recommend this fine restaurant. Service during...Covid was safe, efficient and friendly.More

I got the chance to dine at Chez Piggy for the first time this weekend and it was excellent from start to finish. The hosting staff was warm and welcoming to me and my friends. Our server Neeraj took extremely good care of us; he...was helpful, knowledgable, kind, easy to talk with, and really put us at ease. The safety precautions were better than I've seen anywhere else without feeling overly oppressive. The atmosphere is excellent, with an historic vibe that feels uniquely Kingston but still hip. The bread basket from Pan Chancho was a great start (especially a lovely olive bread they served). I enjoyed the mussels, the frites, and a house made lime tonic that was also delicious. The creme brûlée for dessert was one of the best I've had. One of my friends is a pescatarian and he was able to get a great meal as well. Overall it was such a delightful experience. The reason for our trip was a somewhat sad one and we were hesitant about eating in dining rooms at all, but the team at Chez Piggy made us feel very comfortable and certainly brightened our moods.More

Five women went in on a Thursday night and the place was really set up for the pandemic. I had eaten a ridiculous amount of cheese and crackers before we got there so I wasn't enthused about ordering a main course,so I ordered the soup...and a beet and avocado salad. The lentil soup was really outstanding. Unfortunately I was let down drastically by the salad I mentioned to the server that I was allergic to walnuts, but not almonds or peanuts or pistachios so basically I got a lot of avocado uninspiring vinaigrette and a magnificent huge cooked beet sliced.. I didn't finish it. I'm a retired Chef. Hopefully next time it'll be just as good as usualMore

Entertaining, knowledgeable and welcoming staff. Imaginative offerings plus a solid choice of regular dishes. Cocktails are a must.

I have been going to Chez Piggy for 40 years and it never disappoints. I just came home from one of the best lunches I have ever had. Some of the staff have been working in the restaurant since it opened and that also says...something great about the place and how it is run. Chez Piggy is an institution in Kingston, you won't be disappointed.More
