Everything was good except my wife had to return her steak for more cooking as it was not well enough done. First time that has happened at the keg. My wife only orders steak dinner at the keg restaurant and no other as she comments that the keg is the only place they do her steak the way she likes it. Not this time unfortunately.

The steak was pretty good, but the sides were just okay and not hot. Interior needs a refresh as furnishings are quite worn.

Good specials and the billy miner pie is to die for.

Pros: best waiter ever, Tim. Very helpful and friendly guy, gave a lot of benefits to us and made us feel special. The ambiance was very nice and relaxing and the food was delicious. The appetizers came out fast and the bread was fresh. The washrooms were clean and peaceful. There was also free champagne which was a nice little touch.

Cons: a little too noisy and the two person tables felt small without enough space to accommodate all the food and menus. The lack of a special free desert for birthdays was also something that left us wanting, since other high price restaurants often offer something like that.

Overall this is a great place to spend your birthday or a special occasion.

We came here for new years eve, we made our reservation in october 2019. Everything went smoothly until we left. Steven was an amazing server, he knows all about the food and wine. our food arrived at the perfect timing, everything was perfect for us. We get that new years eve was super busy and they are alot of walk ins. We made a reservation 2 months prior to this dinner at 830pm. the last 10 or 15 minutes, we had this skinny asian petite hostess who sat us down in the first place. we were preparing to leave and she just stood quite near to our table with the hostess tablet or something hinting that we should leave right away. we felt super uncomfortable and im pretty sure she just stood there for a few minutes and just gawking at our table. who does that? it was super awkward as me and my husband were celebrating our first nye together as newlyweds and was romantic. then we had another person who just stood there, staring our way. it was unpleasant to feel that we were being watched and chased out pretty much. She left after a few minutes just standing there and wished us have a good night and happy new year - out of nowhere. me and my husband were getting ready to leave... the whole experience as we were leaving was SUPER AWKWARD and Creepy.

Food was okay. Not what I usually expect from the keg. Very dark. Also not happy I called and asked if parking and was advised yes. Get there. No parking. Only paid. So we left
Our paid lot at a hotel. To pay yet again. Server was great. But overall not a great experience

Table seat was by hall way so lots of traffic as we were eating. Appetizers came after the main, server was good to remove from our bill without us asking. My prime rib was not cooked medium rare, was closer to medium. The meat wasn't very hot and bit dry. Overall not great meal.

Made a reservation for 2 for my birthday…12/28. Was seated just before time, our waiter was great, food was great, and my birthday dessert was delivered! Only one complaint, the wait time to get food seemed extremely long, but they were busy and with the conversation we didn’t realize how long it took for our food to come until we looked at the time. I would definitely return.

Why do you play very loud music in a restaurant that is set up for dining? We could not here ourselves think let alone talk with each other.

Had a table booked at 6pm - we were seated just after it. At around 6.20pm the waitress notified us that the kitchen was under pressure so food would be 45 minutes minimum!
this is info a host should share when seating guests. We ended up opting for soup so we could make our evening commitments on time

I go to the Keg York Street for business lunches and dinners often but this time I was very disappointed. I ordered the Seafood Trio, as I am on a specific diet, and it only came with 2 of the seafoods. In addition, we arrived at 5:15 and our appetizers did not get to our table until 6:30! My guest and I were then late for our event that evening.

I clicked "Yes" that I would recommend your location to a friend as there is no "Maybe" option.

Seven of us for lunch. Was very busy and took awhile to get our food. Totally understand and we were catching up so wasn’t that big of a deal. I ordered steak frites- steak was excellent but the frites were ice cold. Suspect that it had been sitting around until all the orders were ready. Mine was rare where the others ordered medium rare. We were seated at 12:15 and left a little after 2pm.

Steak was full of gristle, the salad had no dressing and the server kept reaching right across my face to top up my wine and blocking my conversatiom with my husband and my friend. She should have pulled my glass towards her to fill it.

My friend and I have been to this Keg restaurant several times. It is convenient to all the theatres and concert halls so makes an easy option for dinner. The food is always excellent, prepared just the way we like it. The vegetables are fresh and cooked just the way we like, cooked but not overly so. The Keg salads are always well chilled, fresh and crisp. The meat is always delicious.

We waited over 45 minutes for our food to arrive (no appetizers) so we were quite rushed to eat. The excuse was that it was very busy but given it's the holidays and you know how busy you're going to be, I don't think that was really valid. Having said that, our server was very friendly and food was good.

We showed up without a reservation and waited about 20 minutes. We were sat near a very large loud party of drinking guys and before we even ordered drinks the manager came over to ask us if we wanted another table. They seated us in a booth in another section. This is what I would call exceptional customer service. We were impressed and will definitely be back. Food was good as always.

The steaks were the worst my wife and I have had any Keg in over a decade of going to various locations. Both steaks were undercooked, they were tough, had more fat and waste than we've ever seen at any other Keg, and neither tasted like they had even been seasoned at all. We were genuinely surprised. The only thing that redeemed the meal was the stellar service and the honest attempt by the manager to make things right without even being asked. We simply cannot say enough about the quality of the service. That is the only reason I gave the meal an overall two star rating. The people there are that good.

This particular Keg is the Flagship in the Chain and lives up to it's reputation that "The Customer is No. 1".

We enjoyed superb Steak & Seafood and our Server was excellent.

BRAVO !
