The Alberni Street Keg Steakhouse + Bar opened its doors in 2014 as the city’s newest Keg location. Located on the second floor and next to the Shangri-La Hotel, the restaurant features two separate buildings for its dining room and lounge, housing two kitchens and multiple patios that overlook Vancouver’s busy shopping and financial district. The finest cuts of steak, an outstanding wine list, knowledgeable staff, and a unique layout make this location ideal for getting together with friends and hosting cocktail parties.

We generally like the Keg, and our first visit to the Alberni location didn’t disappoint. Food (Prime Rib and the daily dpecial Bone-in striploin) were cooked to order. Having lived in Calgary for some time, we have been to a number of higher-end steakhouses, which reinforces the value that is the Keg.

Excellent service start to finish.

Steak was tough, fatty and mediocre at best.

Disappointed. It’s been a while since the keg impressed me. In the old days it was consistently great. Today, or my last 3 visits, it has been mediocre at best. Super sad because I build it up in my mind as a great meal about to happen. Then it happens.

Comfort food done well. Side dishes need updating, but food is consistent decade over decade. Very cozy atmosphere. Service was prompt. Would love to see more BC Beer on tap and Wines represented.

Been to the Keg many times. We are always seated in "the corner" with no view or ambience. Yet again, we were seated in not a very desirable location. However, after requesting a window seat, we were moved to a cozy window seat, which was really nice for a change.
Service and food was excellent. Loved the dessert and coffee.

I've have to the keg a few times and loved the steak Oscar .... always cooked right. The last time we went the steak came to me and I swear it moved...way to under cooked. Medium rare doesn't mean bloody murder 😥

This was my first visit to this Keg location and I loved it. The decor was luxurious and comfortable, the vibe from the staff was upmarket and professional. One always knows the ingredients at Keg are top drawer and the steaks are cooked perfectly. The Alberni Street location exceeded my expectations, I highly recommend the blue cheese filet mignon. Plwe paired dinner with a Robert Mondavi Woodbridge wine recommended by our excellent server. Can't wait to return to this Keg for another fantastic steak dinner.

Made a reservation for 2:00 pm but had to wait 10 minutes even when the restaurant wasn't busy at all. One of the hostesses had an attitude about appearances, gave us all a once over, especially my 85-year old mother. Sorry we didn't meet her business class standards.

Steak was good but can't say the same for other entrees. Halibut was overdone and lobster tacos could do with more kick. Server was friendly and polite, unlike the hostess.

Good place to take visitors, but stick with steak.

We visited the restaurant for our girls 19th birthday 🎂. The service was amazing. The food was outstanding! My girls Tenderloin cooked rare was perfect!
I don't eat fish but tried my husband's Crusted Pistachio Salmon. It was out of this world! Unparalleled freshness and delicious flavours.
I will definitely visit again.

The experience leaves something to be desired for a restaurant with their reputation and price. The server didn't know what wine we had ordered and said it was not available even though I walked by 30+ bottles on display on the way in. Was also not educated on how to serve it properly. I asked how the prime rib would be served and was told Medium rare, however it came out well done and some time after my friends meals had arrived. The manager was great about offering a different meal, or taking mine off the bill. This was helpful however if I ordered something else cooked the way I liked it it would have taken 20 minutes and my friends would have been done their meal. Other than that nice room.

We ordered the 24oz Prime Rib... it was ok. Maybe the quality wasn’t to expectation, but definitely the 2 inches was way too thick. I also suggest the wine list can be improve a bit especially on the Red by glass/keg size. For applause was the services and the noise at this particular location was much lower then the others. Overall, is Keg, a good place with good food.
