Chez Piggy has lost it. Very slow service and very average food. Not sure what is happening in the kitchen. It has lost its touch.

You know that the food is good but your meal falls apart if your server is bad BUT mussels Mike is the star of the show. We ate outside on Thanksgiving weekend and as you can expect, we were the only ones. Nothing was too...much trouble for him. Thank you!More

First time visiting Kingston as we were on our way to Quebec City. Chez Piggy was a very nice restaurant and we enjoyed the experience. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Duck Confit was very good.

We last ate at Chez Piggy almost forty years ago. It is no surprise they are still in business as the food is still excellent, the service outstanding and the setting is great. It will not be another 40 years until we eat there again.

A bit pricey, but good value. The menu is very interesting, creative, and perfectly cooked. Our waiter, Michael, provided excellent, attentive service and very helpful advise and I was glad I followed his recommendations. The lamb rack chops and roast duck leg were delicious. Thanks,...Michael. 😊More

Sometimes, you just want to know…it’s gonna be great. You want to know the bartender wasn’t hired last Tuesday. That the servers are experienced pro’s and that the food…well, the food is the reason everyone comes together to make it all happen. It’s no surprise...that I had a great meal. The surprise is that Che Piggy is always so damn good. I had the Lamb Chops. They were perfect..finished it off with peach pie. Dear God…the peach pie was incredible.More

I met friends from Germany in Kingston for a few hours during their RV trip. We took dinner at Chey Piggy's on a rainy evening, so couldn't sit outdoors. I enjoyed the healthy salad with trout and a crème brulée.

The restaurant was just buzzing, so it would have been impossible to get a place without a reservation. Actually we were a large group - so it becomes even more essential to make a reservation. The staff were friendly and the waiter, although I can't...remember his name, was helpful and informative. The food was tasty and with sufficient variety to meet our dietary needs. I felt that the restaurant was so busy, that the we were being rushed to finish our meal.More

We were two couples for lunch. We had very good service from Hillary who was attentive and knowledgeable. My wife had the smashed avocado grilled sandwich. She thought that it was excellent with exceptional cole slaw. I had the gnocchi with mushrooms. There were a...lot of mushrooms and the sauce was perfect. The only negative was the home made root beer. I really like root beer and I enjoy ordering different brands when we travel. I ordered the home made root beer and it was truly awful. There was no body to it and it had a metallic back taste. There was no problem when I asked for a different beverage, at no additional cost.More

Very Disappointed - tried to book a table for happy hour could only get 2:00 pm and then for only 90 minutes - so you just finish lunch and then you have to go to happy hour - I’m sorry not for me. Makes the...restaurant sound a little “snooty definitely not friendly so we’re not going.More

We were in Kingston twice this summer and enjoyed dinner both times at Chez Piggy. It’s still our go to restaurant in Kingston! The variety of delicious foods on their menu makes it very hard to choose! My husband chose the steak tartare & bone...marrow as a starter (his words—“mouthwatering”), I had the PEI mussels (I don’t like piri piri so they did them in a white wine—heavenly!); I had the Baby Greens & Nabulsi salad while my husband had the Thai Trout salad. We each thought the combination of ingredients in our salad was spectacular! We sat outside and enjoyed our meal on the patio…the patio area is able to seat a large number of guests (in addition to the indoor seating) so we didn’t feel cramped. The server we had was quite attentive but not intrusive. We can’t wait to go back again!More

Our 'go-to' restaurant in Kingston! Great patio location in an inner courtyard away from the street so you're not forced to inhale fossil fuel fumes, great food, great service, dog-friendly, love the Gambas!

Ordered take-out dinner of Black, White and Green (black rice, scallops and asparagus) which was delicious but expensive at $40, also mushroom gnocchi which was good. Came with lots of fresh bread to mop up sauce.

My wife and 3 teenage daughters had lunch here. Food was quite good. We had the oysters, chef special carne nachos, triple deckers sandwich, grilled cheese, and braised beef sandwich, and the fish cakes. The fish cakes was the stand out winner - very good.
