Keg is consistent. The staff are above average, and the food is good. We are rarely disappointed with Keg.

Everything is great except for the bass boom boom music. It is not dining music. It is dancing music . And too loud.
The trend in restaurants is moving towards quiet music so customers can enjoy their meal and conversation in peace.

The boom boom is also very unhealthy fir workers.

Our server was very good but overworked! We could have used a couple more drinks but it was outrageously busy (I could see the food come up ready for servers) and just not enough waiters. They were all going fast. Understaffed!

Lobster au gratin appy, ordered without cheese was FABULOUS! Calamari appy was excellent, ceasar salad seemed very flat, flavorless.
Server was very good, never hovering.
Will definitely make reservations again.

We went for our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. Food was good. Service was friendly and attentive. My wife had prime rib and I had pistachio covered salmon. Both were tasty and delicious.

Bad server. Took 15min before showing up - had to ask another server to get water. Took order, saw her at food delivery and never saw her again till the bill. Never checked on food etc. Not normal Keg level of service we expected.

Our server, Benjamin? Was very attentive to us.
We are very lucky to have good neighbours of the table to our back singing together with us the birthday song for my husband! Very good experience!

Always enjoy the GI Keg for my pre-Arts Club theatre dinner, as have my companion dates. Server Chris was delightfully upbeat, helpful with the wine list, and attentive throughout dinner. Overall service was excellent and much appreciated.

Last night's New Years Eve dinner was fantastic. The food was delicious the only downside was a booboo on my order meant less steak for me to enjoy! The atmosphere is always lovely but unfortunately half way through our lovely meal a table next to us sat and proceeded to be obnoxiously loud to the point we were shouting our conversation. Not the Kegs fault but a disappointment.

Great place to eat. We arrived early and the ladies at the front were able to get us in early. Great start to the night. Our server was awesome. Being New Years Eve he was definitely busy. We never felt that the service suffered. Job well done. As usual the food was delicious.

When going to this Keg, I strongly prefer the "Dining Room Section" over "The Lounge" as it has a better steakhouse atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this restaurant as the service and food are always very good.

Great service and quiet upstairs. Husband’s medium rare steak was pretty chewy, lots of uneatable bits. Otherwise very good.

Had a wonderful evening. Our waiter Riley was fantastic and they even treated us to something sweet at the end because it was a date night! Fantastic service all around.

The food was excellent as always, but felt extremely rushed, almost like I was being to forced to eat my food and leave. My appetizer came after my salad, and my meal was there before we finished our appetizers. If I’m going to spend $200. On a dinner, I want to relax and enjoy my meal, not feel like I’m being pushed out the door

We were seated upstairs where the table was unstable. Moved us to another location and the food was well presented but my steak was cold. The waiter just said" OH sorry about that" and brought the bill. No interest whatsoever. While we had a reservation the front desk was disorganized despite many tables available. ,

Not often we take our large family of picky eaters out for a nice meal. Our server was patient and able to work with our various questions and alternate meal options. We love this location since it feels upscale, yet casual. It was a great meal for a birthday celebration. Will be back - often!

The tomato burrata was just that, no seasoning or dressing just 2 cherry tomatoes some tomato wedges and burrata, very boring and no flavour. Crab cakes were quite mushy, no pieces of distinguishable crab, disappointing. The bread and service were good but I would not return, just not worth it.

The food and service were good as usual. However the boom boom base on the so-called music was intrusive, even after we were told that the intrusive base had been turned down. They may have turned it down but it was still too loud and intrusive. Not conducive to conversation and pleasant dining experience. Why can’t they have nice dinner music?

This was my first time in a Keg since the early 1990's. First off it is a Keg so you know what to expect and the location is superior, hard to beat Granville Island. The food was delicious and the service rivals that of any 4 star restaurant. Our server was attentive without being intrusive, his wine recommendations were spot on, and he was very polite.

The Keg is always most cooperative about splitting dinners. My friend and I can't finish a meal each so we split one. And we usually split a bottle of wine too.
