    Hostess asked if we had a reservation and I replied I did and gave her my name. She then said "go sit on the bench and wait." Sounded like an order to a misbehaved child and very cold. Not impressed! After that everything went well. Good server, good seating and good food. Just need to work on welcoming people when they walk in the door

    Service was great, food was bad. Appies were good, prime rib with lobster topper bad. Way too much salt in topper and meat was cold and too rare as per ordered, bits of unchewable fat as well. Staff was good, we paid for our bevies and insisted on paying for appies, which they wouldn't let us, all food stuff was taken off bill. Other tables nearby were sending back food as well. We've eaten here before and it has been an excellent experience. Probably will return and try again in the future.

    We were there with a group of 8. We've frequented this Keg quite often and have been finding service to be spotty at best, this evening especially. While our server was personable we couldn't ever locate him. He'd make an appearance then disappear. We had to flag him down to order another round of drinks for Pete's sake. "I will be back to refill your waters"....never happened. 3 of our 8 orders were screwed up which resulted in 5 of us having finished our meals when the other 3 orders arrived. Appreciated the manager comping the 3 meals, a very nice gesture, but we really would have preferred just enjoying our meals at the same time. It was a birthday celebration. All 8 of us live in the area but we won't be going back anytime soon.

    We ordered three of the 2 lb. lobsters ($45 each) and none of them was good. They were hard and lacked good taste. (Even the baked potato that came with was dried out.) The lobster in the lobster-chicken combo was also lacking. Having had lobster at your locations on Granville Island and at West Van formerly over the years, being served such inferior food was a great disappointment.

    Overall, our experience was good but challenging. The service seemed off, not for a lack of effort though. Our server was very accommodating but seemed as though he was a bit preoccupied with other tables. We were a group of 8 so we new that it would be a bit slower, as larger groups tend to be. The food was prompt for all but one of our group who somehow seemed to have been forgotten for both the starter and entree. Not the best experience for a first time at the restaurant for all of us. The drinks were great which helped to keep the mode light but it did not leave us with the feeling that we want to return to quickly.

    Lobster feature this month.. lots of yummy goodies-if you like surf&turf.. then this is the time to go! Our server was great.. and the outside patio upstairs was vibrant and busy. But Alas, my steak was such a tough piece of meat...had to rip out lots of muscle fibre-almost like doing surgery on mine BUT my friends' steak supposedly same cut, came out tender and no surgery required.. I'm thinking not the same. Otherwise a great meal.. enjoy the weather!

    This is the first time my girlfriend and I have been to any Keg Steakhouse location and were disappointed with our meals. The service was great...from the hostess to the waiter. We had no problems with our Mojitos or Brie appetizers. The issue, unfortunately was with our steaks. Unfortunately, our medium steaks were not medium at all but borderline over-well done. Based on the fact that we were starving, we noticed this after a few bites and realised that there was hardly, if any, pink in it. This is definitely something that I hope is noticed by the management-the communication between the kitchen and the service staff. Our waiter, Connor, was great-good sense of humour and efficient. Can't fault him for an error in the kitchen.

    Wait staff was great - very accommodating despite the group I brought, many of whom proceeded to drink a bit too much and get loud and make inappropriate jokes. However, food was definitely not up to par. The $30+ steaks didn't taste great. I had a a teriyaki 8oz and my girlfriend had a NY peppercorn (the most expensive I think). Both tasted to me like the marinate was overdone to cover the bland steak and/or cooking. My dish was barren. It had this small steak with some mashed potatoes and some half-cooked beans that seemed like they were thrown in as an after-thought. I felt totally ripped off. The bill was $280 at the end of the night and in my opinion the only thing that was on-par were the drinks, and our server. I won't return.

    Came here with my girlfriend and her parents for her birthday. Hostess asked why we were eating there, and we said it's my girlfriend's birthday. That message was then passed on to our server, who made a special order to give our table a free piece of cake with a candle at the end of our meal; a sign of great service and attention to customer details! It was the lobster summer special, so my girlfriend and her mother got lobster and steak meals, while myself and her father got the 8oz and 10oz sirloin. Our steaks were cooked perfectly based on our request, and was paired well with the sides (great attention to food quality!). Can't beat this kind of service at this price!

    Our family of four all ordered some type of steak and none of us were disappointed. Servings were generous. Restaurant got VERY busy quickly (around 6:00), so we were thankful that we had a reservation. Will definitely return to this Keg location. We've been to a few other Kegs in Alberta and BC, but this one seemed superior to the others with regards to ambience, food quality, and attentive service.

    It was our first time having a business dinner at the Kegs, it was okay, wasn't too loud so we could actually have conversation and hear everyone at the table. The food was good, but our server was so-so, after paying our bill we've never seen her back to the table we wanted some water/coffee/tea but she never came back so after waiting more then 15mins we left. Not sure if we will do it again though.

    When you go to the Keg there are certain expectations...good steak, warm bread, consistent quality and a standard level of service. That is exactly what you get at the yaletown location, everything you would except from the Keg and no less. With the yaletown location you also have the added bonus of choosing to sit on the rooftop patio that has a fireplace and heating lamps for those colder summer nights.

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    Yesterday was the 2nd time we dined at The Keg Yaletown. Overall it was okay, but not as great as the first time we were there. Because the 2 main course were served, while we were still not done with the appetizer (more than half yet to eat), so we had to send them back to the kitchen. The server explained to us that the main course were cooked and served in a fixed time interval, and we worked on the appetizer for too long. In any case, when the main course were brought to us later, one steak became medium (from medium rare that was ordered), and the other one became well done (from medium well), probably due to re-heating.
