Excellent lunch on the patio

This establishment has been a favorite since my university days, and continues to deliver. With fresh ingredients, amazing breads and impressive service Chez Piggy is a Kingston Classic.

I have heard rave reviews about Chez Piggy and was eager to try it. I'm sorry to say I was disappointed. While the ambiance of the outdoor dining was lovely, the food could use a little improvement. The soup was a roasted red pepper with corn and black beans ($6). While it was hot and tasty I didn't see any... More

I wasn't sure what to expect by the name but the restaurant was very nice and offered fine dining. I had the Châ Giô Salad with spring rolls, fresh greens, mint, glass noodles, cucumber and chopped peanuts. There were some excellent entrees as specials but I wasn't very hungry so decided on the salad instead.

This is a Kingston classic. It has been there since the 70s (I think) for a reason. The arched stone walkway to the historic barn reminds you of the 1700s, when the building was built. Service is attentive and fast. Wines are good and cheap, an unusual combination. Go French on wines. They are cheaper than at the liquor store.... More

I have been a stalwart, banner-waving fan of the "Pig" for more than 30 years. Although I no longer live in Kingston, whenever I'm in the city, I make it a point to stop by for lunch, and have often introduced my friends to this beloved restaurant that is so near and dear to my heart. This past weekend I... More

Ordered the special which was pork belly, and this was very fatty. The side salad was good, and so was the coffee. When the waiter asked how our meals were, I told him that this was very fatty, and I couldn't eat it. He did go ask the chef, and came back and told me that the chef said that... More

Had lunch scallops and baby greens - Three scallops and a bitter dressing $16 and my son had the kids chicken fingers which has doubled in price and less of a portion than the last year or so. Usually don't write reviews but this meal was so overpriced and underwhelming - not what we have been used to at Chez... More

Stopped at Chez Piggy for a quick beer and was pleasant surprised to find a beautiful little oasis with absolutely wonderful service and great local beers. We were invited back for brunch tomorrow and couldn't look forward to it more. Sarah was awesome....made us feel like family.

Kingston has been home for me on and off for over 40 years and we have been loyal and regular guests at Chez Piggy for over 30 years. I love the place - the winter nights inside and the fabulous patio in the summer months. One of the charms is that things change -slowly -most guests would see little change... More
