Took my husband on a 2 day trip to Vancouver to see an event at Rogers arena. We went to the Keg as it was right across from our hotel, as well as near the arena. The waiter Brendan was so great, very thoroughly, extremely professional but easy going as well. Our food was hot, exactly what we’d asked for, and perfect. Thanks for a great evening.

Excellent service. Wish I could remember our servers name. He was so polite. Whenever he approached our table he would say " pardon the intrusion". He was an excellent server but his manners really stood out.

The food was great as always, but the service was just average. We ordered drinks, an appetizer, and our dinners. Our salad was delivered first, and we were almost done eating the salad before our appetizer arrived. Not long after our appetizer arrived, they were bringing our meals to the table, then we were asked if we wanted fresh bread. At this point, the server also realized that they had not brought our drinks that we ordered when we first sat down. All in all, we felt like we were being pushed out the door and not allowed to relax and enjoy our meal.

Disappointed: Table too close to entrance, VERY rushed service: our plates were whisked away before one of the three of us had finished eating, bill came before it was asked for. Man with earphone walking around, practically stalking the diners to see who would leave first. Food was OK but not as described by server as to thickness of the steak. Pushing through as many diners as possible. Very Un-KEG.

A little bit dark in the rooms. Why?? More light would make a more comfortable atmosphere. Steak and fidh was extra ordinary good, but what is special on KEG fries?? Not obvious. Beer and wine offer is ok. Advice and service by staff was supporting and very helpful. Warm bread as amouse geule is fine, but offered butter ??? Is without any taste. Disappointing. Overall : OK

The KEG did not disappoint - a good value for money place for steaks. We were lucky to get a good server - he was fun. Unfortunately we had very noisy people on the table next to us, which was quite disturbing. I would like - in a restaurant like KEG - that somebody reminded them of good table manners.

Steaks were cooked to our liking and wine was good and reasonable priced

KEG CLASSINCSのプライムリブ10oz(サラダ、ベイクドポテト)、トップサーロイン12oz、オニオンスープなどをシェアしていただきました。ステーキは何れもミディアムレアです。
プライムリブ、トップサーロインともにとても美味しかったです。
特に、プライムリブは初めての食感、柔らかさ、程よいジューシーさでした。お店一番のおすすめだそうです。行く機会があったら、まずはプライムリブを食した方が良いと思います。
また、トップサーロインも柔らかく、良い食感で、こちらもお勧めです。
カナダへ行く機会があったら、是非、行きたいお店です。
また、このクラスのお肉を食べるお店としては、思ったより低予算ですみます。
お店の雰囲気、スタッフの対応(メニューの説明も丁寧で、非常にフレンドリー)、どれをとっても費用以上で、お薦めのお店です。

We had a great dinner at the Keg Alberni. The Keg is always our go-to restaurant but we had yet to visit this location. It did not disappoint. The service was excellent and the steaks were cooked perfectly as usual.

We celebrated our anniversary in August and had such wonderful time that we decided to go back to celebrate my birthday. We asked for and got Bradley's section (he was our server back in August). Once again, Bradley's professionalism and personality made for another memorable dining experience at the Keg on Alberni Street.

The manager on duty that evening, Andy, was also top notch. One of our steaks arrived overcooked (it does happen to the best). Having learned of this, Andy came to our table to apologize for this and he had with him a complimentary shrimp cocktail to tie him over until his properly cooked steak arrived. This was greatly appreciated as this shows that they do care, not only about the diner's experience, but also of the product they serve. Thank you for such a memorable birthday celebration.

Atmosphere was excellent but this would be the last time to dine out of family with all the Keg locations. Steak quality has been slided a lot over the last 10 years. It is just doesn't taste like the old Keg before. Teriyaki 8oz and my wife's chicken & ribs were so salty and sirloin just taste like ordinary sirloin with tendon even across the grain. The only thing virtually that taste good is the hot and crispy sourdough bread.

Booked online earlier in the day. Greeted and showed straight to our table. Our waiter for the evening came and introduced himself and was very quick to bring water to the table and our requested drinks. He was very polite and friendly answering any questions and recommendations of the menu. The food was very good and well presented. We all really enjoyed our evening and would definitely recommend.

Overall it was good. We had a reservation and got in early. Drinks came right away. We ordered applies and when we finished we got our bread. Then our meal came and as we were half way through our steaks we were wondering were our ceasar salads were. The waiter was apologetic but by the time our salad got there we had finished our meal. Other than that we love the keg but nothing was done for the mistake.
Thanks Ian

Always great food and service. My friend and I got together to try out the summer lobster special, and it really blew our mind. The food was beyond expectation and the drinks that we ordered paired well. We loved the atmosphere of the restaurant as well, which was very casual and easy-going. Best of all, the service that I receive from Keg is always superb. It's the biggest reason I keep going back with family and friends, for it's totally worth my time and money. Love it! STRONGLY STRONGLY RECOMMEND!

ロブスターは部分的に生っぽく、サーロインステーキは硬かった。オニオングラタンスープは美味しかった。
静かな落ち着いたテーブル席をリクエストしていたが、2階の通路席を案内され、往来が多く落ち着かなかった。店全体が賑やかなので、仕方ないと思いました。

The design and ambience of this restaurant are superior to the quality of the food, as we have discovered on two visits in the last 6 months or so. Service on the outdoor patio was very good, and the food OK, but not great. (Why would a chef add mustard to escargots??) However, we 3 were treated well and will be back again, but primarily for the ambience.

Was a birthday, server Craig did a great job. Only issue was that my rib steak was over cooked . He informed the manager Steve , he took care of the bill. Kudos on his part, 2nd time there . Last time we we're there, nieces prime rib wasn't to her liking but manager on shift didn't pickup the bill on that occasion. My prime rib was a little salty also but I didn't complain about it. Should have gotten something else. Just wondering why situation would be different. Manager on shift, didn't lift a finger.

We were in Vancouver on vacation and ended up eating at the Keg twice. The first time was due to it's convenience but the second time was because we had such good food and service the first time. On our second visit we both had steaks that were cooked to perfection.
