The keg was great! Our server was lovely and recommended our wine which was a red from California and was tasty. They also gave us a free dessert which was a lovely gesture. Only complaints are it was a tad dark and the noise, but that’s not anyone’s fault by any means and it was a Saturday night.

Everything was fantastic except the music was way too loud. That combined with the noise of people talking made it hard for my friend and I to hear each other. Advice - loud music not necessary - just in background would be better.

Usually The Keg is top notch food and service. Must have been a rough night. The food was great. Service was below expectations. Will revert to the York St location going forward.

Both steaks were not cooked as ordered. Steal medium well was well well and dry. The other one was medium well instead of medium rare. Poor. Never go there again.

We recently spent a weekend in downtown Toronto, took in a Jays game and went for dinner at the Keg. From the time we walked in the door we were treated well, had a drink at the bar and when we were ready taken to a quiet table for two and enjoyed a perfectly presented meal and staff that took time to talk to us but not take over our night. My guest and I had a great night out at the Keg.

We had the best meal and time ever. We were hoping to go on the patio but the weather had forecasted a storm for 6:30 and our reservation was for 6 so we ended up inside. That's not the Kegs fault at all. It was our first time to take my brother and his wife and they really enjoyed themselves as well. Glad we went to the KEG ONCE AGAIN!!!

We made the reservation 3 days in advance and when we couldn’t make it in time we called to say we would be half an hour late. They said ‘no problem’ but didn’t follow through so when we got there they had given our table away and stuck us in the bar overflow area. We hate the bar overflow area and that is why we made the effort to make the reservation 3 days in advance. We would have gone somewhere else if we didn’t have concert tickets creating a time limit.

The young gentleman at the host table was very helpful.
Our waitress was very good.
Loved being outside.
Music speaker was near us and a bit loud for us to talk to each other.

Went for my birthday dinner, came a but early, had wine at the bar, courteous staff - as always, ordered a strip loin with asiago rice, they changed up the rice since I was there last fall but enjoyed it just the same, although the patio is streetside they do a great job at making it private. Never disappointed

There was a mouse on the patio the whole night! Nobody even came to ask us if we wanted to move inside. A few of the girls in the party were uncomfortable and it ruined our experience.

Our server Andrew was fantastic!!! It was a challenging night as it poured right at the end of our dinner ... luckily enough we had a massive umbrella covering us so we didn’t get wet. Andrew went out of his way to get us a cozy table for all 7 of us in the lounge where we could finish our drinks. Andrew didn’t skip a beat all night ... he was perfectly attentive throughout all aspects of our service ... you’ve got a keeper with him! Thanks fo such a great night!

The Keg never disappoints. Meeting with friends from overseas, it was great to be warmly greeted by the Keg staff, attended by a very knowledgeable waiter and fed swiftly with excellent meals for each of us. Not the cheapest place to eat, but a great night out for a special occasion. The staff really made it for me: so often, it’s their attentiveness that makes all the difference.

The patio was great and busy but not overwhelming.
The service was not great, our waiter never brought bread and butter for us although other tables were brought it. He didn’t check back on us until our meal was almost finished. My husbands steak was well done when he asked for it to be medium and he would have sent it back if the waiter checked back on us but he ended up eating it because we were on a time crunch. Perhaps just really specify how you would like it cooked and perhaps ask if your waiter can check back after it has been delivered just in case.

Our dinner at the Keg house was delicious. We were not rushed and we had a delightful attentive (but not overly attentive) server. How can anybody complain when you're served Billy Miner Pie to share and celebrate a birthday (on the house!).

The asparagus on my plate (with peppercorn steak) was the skinniest asparagus I ve ever seen. We all laughed at it and it made me think what else they skimped on.
