    I've had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant for over 35 years now and I have never been disappointed. While much has changed over this time frame in terms of the space, layout and menu - the food and atmosphere remain top notch. We took advantage of the "Dine around Victoria" promotion and I opted for the $30 menu choices. Ceasar salad to start (dressing was a little too heavy), pecan and goat cheese crusted sirloin for my main and Billy Miner pie for dessert! Aside from the dressing, the meal was perfect and a great value. I was very pleased to see that the portion sizes were NOT reduced as we have found some at some other dining establishments during this promotion.

    Firstly, even with a reservation we waited 30 mins to be seated. It all seemed so disorganized. Our server was awesome!! The only good par to the night... Food came out badly warm and wasn't great (wasn't bad either) I would try going again maybe when they weren't so busy. For the price I expected more....

    This promotion was a great deal. A three-course meal for $30 or $40. We found it a lot of food, but having been to the Keg previously, knew to order two meals for four people. It was plenty and we were stuffed. Food was excellent, steak and prime rib cooked exactly as we liked. Calamari was very good. We found it expensive and went becaues of the promotional weekend and a gift card.

    The only thing better than the food is the service. We love The Keg and it is our destination for every "date night" , which with 2 kids under the age of 3 at home doesn't happen as often as we'd like. We had another wonderful experience at The Keg downtown Vic.

    Had the filet mignon which was tasty! Appys are good but nothing fancy. Drinks were okay but expensive for 'keg size' which is not much bigger than regular size. Meal was filling so didn't try desert. I would probably only come back if I reaaallly want expensive steak.

    After having our food and relaxing with a coffee which we had to ask for because it was not offered the manager came to tell us that because of the evening being busy it would be appreciated if we would move or leave. Very professional Not our problem if you overbook your restaurant. Didn't appreciate girls walking around keeping track of how far along we were with our meal.

    My wife and I really enjoy dining at the Keg, so much that we probaly dine there approximately 4 or 5 times every year. We went to the Fort Street location thie New Years for a 5:30pm sitting. As always, the consistency of the food was spot on, quality of service (our waiter) was fantastic. I understand the concept that the Management/Owners are trying to accomodate to get as get as many tables through as possible. I believe our waiter told us that there were approximately 600 reservations. You could definitely tell that it was not the normal Keg Dining experience that we usually receive. We felt just like a number and not a guest. Our bill $140 approximately, we would have hoped that our whole experience was a little better.

    We were celebrating our 30th weeding anniversary and came over from Port Moody to stay in Victoria. Our first dining out experience together when we met was at the Keg in Coquitlam. We have been dining at Kegs ever since and it's one of our favorite restaurants. I was pleasantly surprise that you could make a reservation at the Keg in Victoria. We started out with a couple of great martinis and both had the steak special of the night. We ended with a couple of Monte Cristo coffees and were pleasantly surprised when we received our bill that the coffees were on the house. All in all we had an awesome time and highly recommend this Keg location of Fort Street in Victoria, BC

    As always, the Keg is a reliable choice for upscale casual dining. Good steak and seafood options, although I think they should offer a white fish dish. The restaurant is a two level layout in a noce modern decor, with the upper floor having great views of Victoria's Inner harbour from window seats. The service was good and the food was hot and quite flavourful. Value is good and we will return.

    The staff were all polite and helpful. The seating was a bit cramped. We were placed beside a very loud and boisterous group of people making conversation very difficult. Not recommended for romantic evenings out. It was hard to hear each other and the waiter. Would have liked to be asked if we would like to move because the noise level was ridiculous. The food was good but the ambience and atmosphere was lacking.

    I went for my birthday and was slightly disappointed. I usually love going to the keg, but this time is was just okay. Our server was not good and often forgot what we asked for. Our entrees came while we were still eating our appetizers so we had to send the food back to be kept warm. By the time they brought it out again my steak was over cooked. The ambiance and view were great though.

    This was our first trip back to the Keg after a while. The previous couple of times we had found it a little too expensive for what you got and the servers seemed more interested in getting you fed and out the door. This time was completely different, our server was there just the right amount, asked when we wanted to have our food ordered and spaced the meal out very well. We never felt rushed at all. The food was typically very good quality and the bill, while not cheap, was still reasonable given quality, ambiance and location.

    I had a wonderful meal here. Originally the reservation was for two, but my date had to cancel due to babysitter problems. I had already seen your menu and was looking forward to it, so I decided to go on my own. I called to switch the reservation to one and nobody gave me a hard time about it. I felt very welcome, and I think I got the table with view I had asked for. The food was great(I had steak and lobster tail, as was the wine and dessert. The waitress was wonderful and always there when I was ready for he next course or anything else. A totally awesome dinner even though I was eating alone. I will definitely be back.

    I love the Keg. Been there lots and the food is always great. This time, however, was not the best. We both ordered off the feature menu, my wife had the Arctic char and I had the manhattan cut steak. My steak was not cooked properly and my wife's fish had a topping that was way too spicy. When we mentioned that the suggested sauce on the fish was too spicy, the waitress offered to bring us a new dish. We declined and just scraped it to the side. We were told that it would be taken off the bill, which it wasn't. Overall, just an off night at a great restaurant. I am sure that my experience is not the norm.

    I love the Keg on Front Street. It faces Victoria's beautiful Inner Harbour has outstanding food and service. I travel a great deal and dine out frequently; hands down, the Keg has the best steak I have ever eaten! My wife and I dine at the Keg each and every trip to Victoria. I'll put it this way; we live in Forks, WA, and make special trips to B.C. just to dine at the restaurant!
