    My wife and I are not 'regulars' at The Keg, preferring to avoid 'emporium- style' eateries. However The Keg on the Esplanade, was designed to provide numerous ambiences, including Bar service, large rooms and multiple small rooms and corners, to satisfy any need. Staff exceptionally courteous (Katie M), and i always appreciate when they introduce themselves - a special feeling Good value both for food and good wine selection a reasonable (not price gouging) Will be returning

    Really enjoyed the visit overall. The service started off really good, but we arrived over 2 hours before we needed to be at a show so we could have a leisurely dinner, and because the server kept disappearing (I'm sure he was busy with other tables, it's not like he was slacking off) at vital moments, like when we wanted to place our order and when we wanted to order dessert, we ended up having to skip dessert to rush out to our show. We were able to come back in for dessert after, so we were happy about that. It was just a bit frustrating that at the crucial moments when we needed service, neither the server or any other staff was around. Or they would rush past without making eye contact, so we couldn't even indicate that we needed someone to stop by the table. I will definitely still be back, because I recognize that the quality of the food and drinks are always quite high, and normally the service is great.

    Our server kind of forgot about us after we got our bottle of wine. She came back to take our orders, took very long for her to bring the bread out. Our wine glasses were never refilled. I got the chicken and it was over cooked and extremely salty and and another person in our group got the salmon and asked for it to be cooked well done and it was not. The steaks very good.

    We normally enjoy The Keg but the food in this case was mediocre at best. Probably the second worst steak I’ve had at The Keg, second only to the maple location a couple of years ago. Our server was very good and it was an otherwise enjoyable experience.

    Our server was attentive and gave us the right amount of space but when taking our order she neglected to mention we already had vegetables and Bernaise sauce included with our meal and accepted our order for additional vegetables and sauce without a word. The extra food Which we didn't need and couldn’t eat and yet had to pay for. Disappointing.

    The vegetables were a mixture of mainly grilled peppers, then some zucchini and mushrooms. The mix varied per person I.e. one plate was mostly peppers and the other mostly zucchini and a few mushrooms. The menu seemed to indicate that with Classic roast beef choice that it was served with a dedicated serving of mushrooms but not so. The service started well at the beginning but after our main was served, the service level decreased with little or no followup on any other needs we might have. Perhaps there was a shortage of servers as this was a house full Leaf game night. The server also forgot to deliver horse radish and au juice with the roast beef. To be fair, the food overall was good and we did receive a complementary birthday dessert.

    Overall a very decent place to go for any occasion. We went for my wife's Bday and generally there wasn't much to complain about. Food was what I expect and ambience was classy but not stuffy. The only thing that bothered us was that our waitress didn't seem that friendly. She didn't smile much and only wished my wife a happy birthday as a passing gesture. My wife's language abilities doesn't allow her to communicate so maybe that was an issue but nonetheless it's her birthday. A genuine smile and warmth would make people feel more welcomed. Maybe it wasn't her day but someone's birthday is someone's birthday. Professionalism is required because the optics are important.

    Found the service to so rushed that items were forgotten. My partner was served his pre diner cocktail before I could even order one. Getting a second drink was almost impossible. Please go back to regular butter for the bread. Also you should offer more hot sauce than just Tabasco sauce. And in closing. Your payment terminals should show the tip percentage on the net amount and not the gross.

    I had a craving for prime rib for 2 weeks and finally booked a table for date night. Started with cocktails which were just fine. The ribs were delicious but aside from the iceberg wedge salad, the prime rib was so disappointing I didn’t eat it. Overcooked with a powdery feel and just not what I hoped. The wait staff said the prime rib is the most popular item on the menu so obviously others like it but it was the worst I have ever tried. The manager graciously took it off the bill. Other than the Kim Crawford Pinot I left hungry.

    The service from Sam was great. Wine was fantastic and the food was great. Mom's Wellington was a little overdone but fortunately we had more than enough other yummy to keep us happy. Noise level was pretty good for a Keg, often they are quite loud. Overall, great experience.

    We had to wait to be seated after making a reservation, when we were finally seated the paper went out, the waitress said she could still serve drinks and took 10 mins to come back and say no, the restaurant filled with smoke bc of the Power outage. We asked for water while we waited for a few minutes to see if the power came back on - it was never given - it was a horrible KEG experience
