The service was incredible, our waiter was very attentive, we had a half booth and it was perfect! From the mood lightning, being greeted within 5 minutes of sitting down to being told when are appetizer would arrive, it seemed that the waiter was always there when needed and we never had to request for him to come. I would highly recommend and will be going back to this location! Our night was perfect because of the experience that we were provided with. It was one we will always remember!

The Keg has always been a go to steakhouse for us and Friday night was no exception. There would have been 5 stars for the food if it was not for the asparagus served with my wife's prime rib. It was thin, fairly tasteless and only the top 1-2 inches was edible the rest was stringy and tough. I am sure the kitchen know the knack of bending the stalks and only cooking the part that breaks off.
This disappointment was totally offset by the fact that as it was a birthday celebration we were given a Billy Miner Pie with a candle (fortunately no tableside singers!) That dessert is another good reason for going to The Keg.
It was a great evening as always. Thank you!

From the time we entered the restaurant, until the time we left, the service was exemplary! We were greeted after confirming our reservation, seated immediately and shown on the way to our table where the bathrooms were! The seats were very comfortable, it was low level noise so we could hear each other talk and the food (we are BIG Keg fans ;)) was amazing! This is going to be our "go-to" restaurant when we come to the city. LOVELY interior - one of the best we've been to!

We always go to this Keg before concerts, games, etc. Nice ambiance but so unbelievably warm in the restaurant. Server told us because the condo unit above controls the heat, but it's almost uncomfortable how warm it is.

No personal to receive people. After waited several minutes for someone to come I went into the bar and the dining area looking for a waitress or someone to ask if we can pass and where is our table. The place was very dark making everyone almost fall asleep. The music was cheerful and fast which does not pair well with the rest of the environment, plus the fact that many of the songs were repeated several times. The food was very good.

The Keg is consistent but the price points are getting too high. I could go to much better restaurants within the city and have a similar sized, comparable grade options for less money. They have very "classic" old options where as other restaurants would have trendy /current and more unique versions.

It was a wonderful, cozy and delicious steak dinner for 3. We had a quiet corner which was excellent for conversation in which all could participate. The only item we noticed was that it was dark. We had to be careful when leaving the table, few stairs. Otherwise fantastic dinner and evening out. I am sure we will come again.

Two factors kept me from giving a higher rating. Despite booking a month in advance, I had to book a 4:30 pm table (was seeing a show post dinner so we did not have flexibility...the next available time was after the show). I guess that speaks to the popularity of the place but it won't be top of my mind for a more spontaneous evening. The second factor had to do with the actual table. It was much too tall for the seating (we were at a booth that also had chairs). So much so that my husband who is 6'3" found it uncomfortably tall for eating! We jokingly asked the server if she had any booster seats and she mentioned that everyone complains about this particular table. So why hasn't the establishment done anything about it?

Lighting a bit too dim for a steakhouse. Service excellent. Steaks a good to very good, ribs mediocre.
Reception staff seem confused at times and busy chatting.
Trying too hard not to be a steakhouse but an elegant restaurant.
Still overall quite satisfactory.

Ambiance is always great at the Keg. We celebrated a birthday and we got the best booth (in my opinion) in the restaurant. Totally private. However since it was so private, I think our server forgot about us a few times, but he was really kind. Definitely will go back, especially the Esplanade location.

My colleague and I had a wonderful experience a few days ago. Greeted right away; an offer almost immediately to hang up our coats, seated with one minute.......can't say anything negative about the experience we had.

Excellent service, food and drink.

Will definitely do this again.

Thank you.

Very uncoordinated service. We waited 54 minutes to get the food at the table. The main server was not amiable and gave us the silent treatment and was very curt taking the food order. The food was not up to standard. When a server was asked to replenish the bread basket he simply forgot and disappeared. A guest had to remind another server to hand the take home food bag on the way out. A very depressing ‘Keg dining experience’ overall. The money I’ll spent would have better served a needy charitable institution.

Excellent from the moment we walked in and the hostess greeted us. Service was attentive, steak was excellent. Twice baked potato was perfectly cooked and the billy miner pie was delicious! We really enjoyed our dinner and couldn't find any fault. This is an excellent location and I highly recommend it whether out on a date, a family celebration or an evening out with the girls.

Annual trip to Toronto for the Royal Winter Agricultural Fair also coincides with one friend's birthday. We also happened to be staying across the street at the Novotel. Super convenient especially during a rainy stay. Thanks!
