  • Small booth for six

    Dined on 11/22/2014
    We booked for six people for dinner. We were seated at a booth that did not comfortably sit six. This table would have made sense for four for dinner or six for drinks. This table did not make sense for six people to eat dinner. We were disappointed that we couldn't be moved at all. The service was good as was the food but this table situation did put a damper on our evening. If you book this restaurant for a dinner for six I recommend you put in your request to have a table and not a booth.

  • Lunching at the Keg (Westin)

    On our recent business luncheon at the Keg (Calgary Westin) we were treated to the quality of food and service that this restaurant has become famous for. In my opinion, the Keg represents a much better value for your dining dollar than the other well-known steak house restaurants in the Calgary core. One of my lunch clients chose a Teriyaki Sirloin, the other Halibut Fish and Chips; while I selected the Steak Sandwich with Corn Chowder soup. According to my clients, each of their dishes were outstanding, perfectly prepared and well presented. I was much less impressed with the steak sandwich in that rather than a single cut of meat, this sandwich consisted of several outside slices of a steak-type roast on top of a flatbread. While it was cooked medium rare exactly as ordered, the meat was quite sinewy and the flatbread tasteless. I suppose this format is the Keg's take on a steak sandwich, but I would have preferred the classic "steak sandwich on garlic toast" that seems to be the standard. All in all, these are minor complaints. The service was exceptional, the wait-time reasonable during the busy lunch hour and we will not hesitate to return.

    We were seated promptly and it took over 10 minutes to Oder a bottle of wine. And the waitress walked away before we could order appetizers with it. When we ordered our appetizers we were not ready to order the main course yet. She dropped off the appetizers and walked away before taking our main food orders. It took 2h and 10 minutes to get through one basic dinner sitting. Waitress was a bit shy. Food was good but not as exceptional as the prices should convey. Serving size is decent though. Everything came together and all food was hot despite ordering 4 distinct and different meal which took different cooking times. Granted it was 20 minute from ordering from starters and 35 minutes from ordering for our main meal.

    The Keg has always been known for their steak and it is what they do best. While we had great service during our visit the food was somewhat disappointing as we ventured out for something other than steak. My husband had the ribs and was told that the side dish mentioned on the menu was not available and it was what he specifically wanted. My chicken supreme was overcooked with not a lot of flavor. Next time we'll be sticking to the tried and true steak or prime rib. Our server and staff were however extremely helpful.

    We made a reservation for 6:30 and were promptly seated. Our server (Elizabeth) greeted us shortly thereafter, took our drink order and explained the features. The tuna tartar appy was fresh and looked wonderful. My blackened NY was tasty and just a touch overdone – more M than MR but still juicy and wonderful flavor. My wife and son both had a 7-ounce filet that were cooked perfectly. the three-cheese butter with the bread was amazing. I can’t say enough nice things about our server. She was friendly, helpful, had great table maintenance and did not hover. We will be back!

    The service started out slow, taking a while for drinks. Appetizer came out and was good but when our main courses came out, we sent them back. ALL of the food we ordered was way overdone. We sent it all back and they re-made the meal. The second time was much better and the manager and our server were very apologetic and dealt with the situation very well. I would go back, we probably just got an off night in the kitchen.

    We were very surprised to have such poor service. We normally have no complaint with The Keg downtown but this night we waited an hour for any food, even though she had taken our entire order at the start. We had to practically beg for everything from wine to bread to meals. When my husband finally went and asked her if our meal might be coming soon, our waitress said "where are you sitting , I don't recognise you" If this was our first visit we would not return. Hopefully it was a freak occurrence.

    The Keg wasn't terrible, but a poor option in Calgary where vastly better steak houses are abundant. It was hard to taste the steak over the excessive "keg spice." For restaurant pricing, the steak quality was very poor, though, the appetizers were an improvement. I won't be going back while living in Calgary.

    The Keg is usually a safe, solid choice for a good dinner. This visit was totally fine but far from great. We ordered two Tenderloin Classics, which again were fine but unspectacular. The service for the evening matched the food. All in all I will go back but was a but disappointed with this visit.

    It may have been a combination of several factors. I know space is money but so is customer attendance. I found the table just a bit too close for my liking. I admit I do have a hearing disability and the fact it was crowded added to the noise level. Loud voices bother me and I try to avoid large gatherings. However, the food was awesome, the service was great and I will definitely be returning when in Calgary again. Perhaps if I had mentioned a quiet table because of my hearing, you no doubt would have tried to accommodate me. Exceptional restaurant indeed. Thanks for the experience.

    If you are looking for a Keg this is an excellent choice. Seems more upscale than other Kegs. And the food and service are very good. Bar is good spot for a drink with friends as it is more spacious than a lot of bars. Is a bit noisy with people trying to talk over the music playing. Dining room is quieter.

    The Keg has always been a go to spot for consistent great steaks and fine food for me. A big let down when I took my son for dinner before the hockey game. The service was slow and not attentive at all which I chalk up to the fact that we did not order any alcohol. The food took over 40 minutes to arrive and was par at best, steak was over done and the crustiness of the sauce on my dish told me it had been sitting under the hot lamps for a while. As we were on a time line to get to the game we ate and left.

    The food was fair only; the baked potato side was overcooked and dry and the side greens soggy. The prime rib sandwich was OK though and well-cooked. The service on the patio was terrible! It took our party 2 hours to be served and eat! Not acceptable for a working lunch. Highly overrated, expensive and very disappointing and my clients were NOT pleased with the delay!

    The ambience is good for a downtown restaurant, decor is modern and the seating is great. However, not a busy night yet problem with our order. 2 in my group ordered prime rib medium and two ordered medium rare. All 4 were rare, and one was sent back to be fixed. A steak house should always be able to cook it to the degree requested, as steaks are the specialty.

    The patio was lovely, warm sunny day. Unfortunately, the waitress seemed unfriendly and stand offish. The service was incredibly slow, we sat at the Table for close to 10 minutes before we were asked if we wanted menue's. When you out for a work luncheon, one doesn't have a lot of time for lunch. I had the tuna tacos, which were good but asked for the salad as the side dish with the dressing on the side. The order came with a side of something, but when I put it on my salad (as I assumed it was the dressing), I quickly learned that it was the hot sauce for the tacos. Not a very pleasant surprise. There was no apology from the witress, however she did bring a new salad.

    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.

    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.
