When we arrived there was no direction as to where we were supposed to stand, had to wait to be seated even though there was five people. All of them were dealing with one customer looking to get in with out a reservation. When the food arrived even though the plates were hot, the food was cold.

I always go to KEG with my co-worker.
This has been for the last 20 years.
This time, it’s one one my coworkers’s 30th Bday. They didn’t even do anything for it. Very disappointed.
Might not go back for a while

The filet During my last several visits have been below par. Sinewy and not cooked to my specifications rare instead of medium plus? I even had them slice it so even a junior cook could see it was rare. I ended up taking it home to give to the dog the last three times. Not what I expect from the keg steakhouse

The Keg never disappoints. With the COVID restrictions it has not affected the ambiance, the service or the food of course. We had a delicious lunch and our server Blythe was awesome. Thank you Keg Alberni for another top experience!

Bacon undercooked and rubbery for scallop and bacon appetizer. Steak over cooked. Not medium rare as ordered. Service not checking in for order quick enough. Noise too loud for conversation across table. Not up to normal good standards from other visits.

Service started out well, but our water glasses were never refilled and once we paid, our server completely disappeared. It was like they wanted us to leave, even though the restaurant was not busy, and it was still early. I would have ordered another drink, but the opportunity never arose. We sat and chatted with our friends for at least an hour without a server ever checking in with us.

Why is it so dark at The Keg? And why don't they serve vegetables with a steak like they used to? Expensive. You could add some vegetable to round out the meal.

My friend and I were hosted very at the entrance. But for some reason when we moved to the patio area the server forgot about us. So delayed to order our food, and our order was a bit late too. I think it’s a bit upsetting because we were dine at a higher end kind of restaurant. And service was definitely not delivered.

Occasion: birthday

There was a delay between appetizers (calamari, shrimp cocktail) and mains but that was likely kitchen’s delay. Shrimp cocktail was noticeably smaller than usual but still tasty.

Both rib steaks were excellent (medium rare, and other slightly more done as requested).

For once, there was no attitude given for just having water. Didn’t need any extra calories with the 20 oz steaks!

Gratis b-day dessert was icing on the cake.

Our server Sohail’s genuine gratitude for the larger-than-usual tip was a refreshing change, and ended a lovely evening on just the right note.

The food a bit lack lustre, the table was like being put in a box. I think I’d go to a different location next time.

We have always liked the Keg. On the night we were there I ordered the “special”. I apologize but I don’t remember what they called it. It was a sirloin steak (I think) cover by a shrimp and other ingredients that had a great flavour. I don’t like sending my food back so I ate the meal. Why I say this is because the steak that I got was very chewy and hard to swallow. I don’t know if the Keg uses cheap meat and cover it with tasty sauce to hide that fact but that’s how I felt. My wife’s steak was perfect and the rest of our dinner was great.

The terrace facing Georgia Street was noisy. More so than the terrace facing Alberni Street. The latter will be my stated preference nest time.

Took the server 15 minutes for a first drink of a vodka soda and a rye and ginger. No waters at all. Server said hello, indicated he would be back for the drink order. No other servers attempted to help with taking our order. Quite turned off on experience. Paid for drinks and left. We were more than willing to have full meals and drinks during the Canuck game.

Dario was an amazing server. He always came by our table and made sure that we were well taken care of. We were celebrating a 30th birthday and he definitely made it special by surprising the birthday girl with a cake! Thank you so much, Dario! We will definitely come back because of the great service and food :)

All of the food was excellent with the exception of my husband...he ordered medium well steak and received steak that was medium in the middle which is way to red for his taste.

As the only brown guys in the restaurant trying to enjoy a nice dinner. We were racially profiled by police and harassed while eating. They surrounded our table and asked for our ids. While 1 officer stood by the exit and stared us down. Once they checked our ids they left and no one else was asked to show theirs. The keg staff said this was a normal occurrence. So if your a person of colour be ready to be harassed by the police if you choose to dine here.
