    We were surprised that the serving staff at this location on this particular night, seemed to be a bit disorganized and struggling to keep up & get things right. For example, our server had to return to our table to double-check my drink order (Cava which was clearly on the menu), and then a different server tried to deliver our salads BEFORE our cocktails and our escargot appetizer, although we had specifically asked for the escargot to be delivered to the table as the appetizer course. We also were surprised to see kitchen staff delivering food to tables in the main dining room - this reinforced the thought that perhaps the waitstaff were somehow disorganized or overwhelmed. We will return to The Keg but hope for a better experience.

    The food and service was top notch. Laura our server was very attentive and pleasant. The food was cooked perfectly and brought out in a timely manor. The room had a good vibe to it and not too loud. The meal wasn't too pricey for a downtown location. I would recommend this place to anyone. I'll be back for sure.

    The food was great as well as the ambiance. My friend and I sat outside on the patio at the Keg on 4th street. It was a little noisy since you are right next to the road but that is to be expected. We go to the Keg on 4th quite often and I highly recommend it!

    Meal was not what we typically would've expected. The food was good, but the steak was not cooked accordingly and we were missing some items. Wine selection is decent and is reasonably priced here so that is a plus. Our server seemed preoccupied, but managed to pick it up by the end of the meal. Will go back even though this experience was sub par to other visits.

    We enjoyed a pleasant evening at the Keg. I had received a gift voucher from this restaurant, and wished to enjoy it with my family. We chose a 7:30pm Sunday evening time period to visit. Unforunately, our food preparation was significantly delayed. We completed our dining experience at 10:00pm (without desert and without coffee/tea). The meal was well presented, and of adequate size. However, the 6 of us remarked that the steaks were all 'overcooked'. It seems that we were all slightly wrong on our expectations of preparation. Thus, although a pleasant environment was enjoyed, the lengthy time for delivery of a meal means that we will not be back.

    not sure what their problem was, perhaps short staff and insufficient training, we waited far too long for our pr dinner cocktails and the waiter got one order wrong, with no rush on the replacement. long wait for appie order, long wait for clearing, long wait for food and one order was cold, both steak and potatoe. They did replace it but we were a party of 3 wanting to dine together for a b.day celebration. a supervisor came to apologize and offered to take meal charge off bill. That was good but the evening was spoiled - we would give them another try but not for a while - not up to the standard we've come to expect.

    We had a lunch a month or so and it did not live up to my previous Keg experiences or expectations. I had contacted the Manager to provide my feedback. He was kind enough to give us a gift certificate and asked us to give them another chance. This was well worth it - lunch and service was fantastic. thanks to the Manager for taking such an interest and wanted to redeem themselves to us.

    I decided to go to The Keg instead of Caeser's or The Trib as I have eaten at these steak houses before but never The Keg. I had heard that they had great steaks. I had a Manhatten cut strip steak and it was cooked correctly and tasted better than I expected. It was not as tender as I would have liked but about what one can expect from a strip steak. The lobster tail I added was likely baked and that dries out the meat and pretty much ruins a good lobster tail. The service was friendly and very attentive. It was, however, extremely dark in the restaurant and when you first arrive you are almost blind while they lead you to your table. Overall, I would go again and try a different steak.

    The food and service were great. The ambience a bit cold and the bar areawas packed. The couple sitting across from us werenot dressed for the spot. (or maybe they were) She had on what appeared to be a nightgown, he had a t-shirt and jeans. Not what you expect when you are going to what is supposed to be a great steakhouse in the downtown core.

    Everything was great - food and atmosphere. Our server was not as present as we are used to though. We went with empty drinks for nearly 20 minutes during our meals which seemed bizarre for the keg service that we're used to. Otherwise it was a nice experience for my husband and I on our mini-vacation! They even took care of our dessert when we told them it was a special occasion.

    My wife asked for her steak (fillet) to be well done but when it arrived at our table it was more cremated than well done. The waiter agreed that the steak was in edible and promptly returned it to the kitchen and served us a replacement in a reasonably timely manner. We were given a couple of free glasses on wine and a reduction in our bill as compensation and an abject apology from the head waiter. I have to say my steak was excellent and the service very good and can only assume the chef took his eye off the ball with the fillet!!!

    Our group of 3 was seated 15 minutes later than our reservation time so we were quite annoyed, especially as it was lunch time and we all had to get back to work. When the bill came, another hostess came by and apologized for the slow service and she comped our whole bill. It was a very nice gesture and it made up for their error. Although our bill was only $60 or so, it ensured that I would go back for another visit. Thank you Keg!

    As always, everything was great. I love dining here. I've yet to find somewhere that make a French onion soup that good, and the sirloin oscar has me hooked. I was also feeling adventurous and tried a strawberry mojito, with low expectations, as most restaurant chains never seem to make it properly, but they know what they're doing here!

    It is difficult to find a restaurant that caters to children. We have found many will accomodate, but still not "kid friendly". When my husband and young daughters we made a reservation at the Keg. To my surprise, they had our table ready with a coloring page for each and their own set of crayons. That set the stage for our experience. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was steller! Thank you

    Have been there several times and was never disappointed (maybe that's the reason why I keep coming back...). Steaks are always grilled to perfection and my personal favorite, the Filet Mignon wrapped in Bacon, is just so tender! Also, it is one of the quieter restaurants in Calgary, so a perfect location for a business dinner or if you want to enjoy good conversation.

    was pretty shocked at service waitress was somewhere else on this night not very attentive. Had to send steak back three times. First time I mentioned to waitress that was supposed to be medium rare she tells me Our medium rare is pretty rare I just kind of looked around at other diners at table and thought this is the beginning of the end. By the time food arrived appetite went out the window other diners had already finished there meal. Was quite surprised as I eat there at least once-twice a month with fellow royal dutch shell workers .. I may take time for pause when asked next time if I would like to dine at the keg. Kind Regards

    Great service and food except your patio chairs are FAR too low for the tables you have out there. When I sat down the table was at my neck, I'm not sure how you are suppose to eat off something that high. You guys are in desperate need of new patio furniture.

    We were unlucky in that the extraction hood failed shortly after we ordered our steaks. The staff immediately let us know and even offered relocating us to avoid the smoke scent. At that point the kids were already set up with their crafts, and we decided to stay where we were. There was barely any smoke as they decided to cook our steaks on low heat setting according to the manager. This somewhat affected the food quality in that the steaks were a bit less juicy than we expected. Other than this little misfortune it is a great place with a nice romantic touch, extensive wine list, and good menu for kids.

    I ordered a medium sirloin steak but I waited a very long time for it. The restaurant was not busy at all and when it finally arrived it was medium well. Not sure if the delay was due to the kitchen or the server problem. I did not get much service but I still left a 15% tips but the server just left my copy of the receipt on the table and left without saying a word.

    I was in calgary for a course and my husband flew down to celebrate my passing. We came to the keg! My sangria drink was warm with no ice. Full of chopped oranges with peels on! No cherries like the menu said. Our steak was over done and tough. I had the oscar. $100 bill and left so upset. No manager or supervisor checked on us. It was awful. Don't know if I would recommend or come back to this keg. Very disheartening!!! Saved up our money even to treat ourselves here. What a waste. :(
