78th birthday dinner for my mother bill came to over $630 including 18% tip. I would have expected the Keg to at least have provided her with a complimentary slice of ice cream cake. Disappointed with that fortunately mom was unaware and enjoyed the cake. The children paid for the bill.

Went for dinner before seeing Joe Bonamassa at the QE Theatre. Perfect. Didn't have an abundance of time, but our waiter pulled it off and still kept things relaxed and professional.

It was just my wife and I taking my Son out for dinner to celebrate his 23rd birthday. I had noted it when I made the reservation, and at the end the waiter arrived with a piece of ice cream cake. Very nice, did not expect this, it was a pleasant surprise to a great evening. Great food, great service.

We had a nice time, thank goodness for great company!
Our appys were delicious and we really enjoyed our service- friendly and quick!
Mains were overall good. The top sirloin is I had was too salty and disappointing, it was also more rare then medium rare. Dish was meh.
The feature steak was excellent and the other main was good- good it had the gravy.
Wish we could get a second chance at better food.

Made reservations and showed up on time. Waited 20 minutes and then took a seat on the rooftop because we had a show to go to. Heaters on but drafty. A little disappointed.

Glad that we were sharing dinner with friends we hadn't seen in awhile because our apps and dinner took just over 3 hours. "Special" lobster appy overpriced, prime rib ordered medium, delivered rare. Halibut orders way overcooked. We live in the area so frequently dine in the neighbourhood. Two years ago we had a similar dining experience at the Keg but 'tried' it again. Lots of great dining experiences in Yaletown, sorry, won't make the mistake of visiting the Keg again.

Birthday dinner for my father’s 65th birthday. Service was acceptable considering it was a Saturday night and two groups celebrating birthday were seated side by side. Server was busy, food pace was neither satisfactory nor was it completely unsatisfactory. Prime rib dinner was pathetic looking. 10oz prime rib was 1/2 inch thick and very sad looking. Restaurant noise was loud. Hard to carry a conversation around the table so ended up having split conversations or yelling to be heard above the noise level.

Lounge was excellent vibe for appys and wine, as we took our bottle of wine to the dinning area and didn't need to order another bottle, our waitress refilled our glasses, I thought this was bad service, t/o the same restaurant and lounge bar should provide the same level of service.

We had a great experience celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday, with her mother and son accompanying us. Michael was perfect and engaged, interested and interesting. I really appreciated a fresh steak when my order was slightly under fired! We always go back to the Keg, even without an occasion, for this reliable level of service and value.

I often visit The Keg. This visit however wasn't as good. The baked potato skin was very hard as though it was baked the day before and reheated. And the outside of the prime rib was inedibly tough.

I will try again most likely, but was disappointing this time.

We can always count on The Keg for a really great steak cooked to perfection every time we go. The new appetizers we tried were excellent.
The wait staff are always on top of their game - such a great place to eat out for a special occasion- so with the money.

Steak was not really good, it was a bit dry and had lots of spices. The service was also not bad but wouldn’t call it good either, it seemed that everyone was ready to go home. My overall impression is it was overpriced for what the offered

We were happy with our waiter. He was attentive, considerate, and efficient. Unfortunately, the restaurant was under staff that evening. I believe there was a printing issue when putting through our drink orders. It took over half an hour for us to get our drinks and for our orders to be taken. I have 2 toddlers and you can imagine that they can get impatient when they are hungry sitting for too long. Our waiter was nice enough to give the kids some veggie sticks to tie them up. Perhaps the Keg is not meant for family environments. Overall the food was good always consistent.

We have been to the keg numerous times, each time leaving very happy. This time was different. We were seated at a table that was up a couple of steps and behind a screen. We felt quite isolated. We received our drink order in a reasonable time then ordered our dinner. We were not offered any bread. Our waiter passed our table twice with a water jug but didn’t seem to notice that our glasses were less than half full. Dinner was served by someone else, not our waiter. We had hoped to order some wine for dinner but our waiter didn’t return until we were finished our meals. We have always enjoyed the keg but this time was disappointing. We will go back, though.

On my reservation I mentioned that I was going for a special night to celebrate with my bf. I did request a ‘nice table’.
When I got there, the table that they selected as ‘nice’ was isolated from everyone in a little black corner.
They dis move us for a better table (after I request).
They knew that was my birthday and that we were celebrat1 year together and they didn’t care. They didn’t even say happy birthday or congratulations.
Anyway... food is good but I felt like they didn’t care about me as a customer.

My roast beef was quite salty. The escargot - it used to be great, but I think they changed the recipe. Not keen on it anymore. The keg has to do more than what they are doing now - they basically are dialing it in.

My mother is from out of town and wanted to come here for her birthday, I made a note when making the reservation that It was indeed a birthday.

The service was horrendous, No one came to greet us for 10 minutes, by that time we were ready to order.
We ordered appetizers and steak, Our salads came, however my boyfriends burrata never ended up coming, I knew something was wrong from working in the service industry myself and flagged down the waiter after not seeing him for a while, he advised that it was indeed going to be coming out with the meal and had them bring it out earlier.

I had to ask for the Bread which you normally get with your meal as this was never offered as well.

Our meals finally came my baked potato was not warm by any means and my boyfriend ordered the fried chicken which is basically crappy chicken fingers, the coleslaw that accompanies it looked like coleslaw that had been sitting in the fridge exposed for a week and it had no dressing on it.

Our steaks were fine, no complaints there but I would caution others about ordering anything else because the quality is just not there.

I'm really disappointed we chose this place for a birthday dinner, Next time I will go with my instinct and choose someplace else.
Save your money and go to cactus club, the food quality is better and you will actually receive decent service.

Keg you are the worst.
