Great ambience. The music was a little loud half way during the evening. We asked if it could be turned down and graciously they did. So that made the dinner more enjoyable. We could converse without talking loudly and asking each other to repeat what they had said. Food and service was too notch. Irene brought a candle to help my friend honour her daughter’s memorial.

Can see Covid effect big time. Prices exploded, less workers so limited reservation ability and limited attention from workers who do show up. Trudeau needs to stop cerb welfare so workers go back to work!!!

Unfortunately our food was served cold, steak and lobster, the lobster was room temperature not warm, the broccoli was dried out, the sweet potato was dry, the garlic mash potatoes were gummy, the baked potato had hardly any potato inside of it, and our medium rare steaks were tough, mine was fatty. To add to that our steak knives were dull. Our server was excellent. We did not want to cause a scene by complaining about everything on our plates, so did not, as it was a birthday occasion and we wanted to remain in good moods. I would never recommend the Keg or return if the food we were served is the new food standard.

It was our first dinner out to celebrate 2022, so was really looking forward to the ribs, as that's our favorite dish at The Keg. I ordered a white Sangria which in the menu description said it had green apples, mint, peaches, etc. The drink arrived with no fresh fruit pieces at all, and no taste of mint. I've had the same cocktail at a different location before and it came as advertised. I advised the server that it seemed off and he did go check with the bartender and brought me a plate of peaches and diced up green apples. He acknowledged that they had put no fruit in my drink. It just seemed odd to serve a Sangria with no fruit in it in the first place. I ordered my usual lobster tail as an appetizer. They forgot to bring the hot butter on the side, which basically makes the dish. I had already eaten half of it before the server checked in, so he did bring it later and acknowledged they had forgotten. We both ordered the baby back ribs with baked potato. The ribs came with a biscuit which was soaked in honey, very odd concept. The biscuit was sitting in a pool of honey and soggy. I thought it was a mistake, so let the server know. He took the biscuit away and brought me another one which was equally soggy and soaked in honey. I would much prefer coleslaw as the dish needs some acid or something refreshing, rather than carb overload. If they do want to serve a biscuit it should not be sweet and soggy, very unappetizing. The ribs were far less meatier than in the past, and mostly fat. It was overall a disappointment to start off the New Year with a mediocre dining experience.

Katie was an amazing server. Super nice, thoughtful and patient with us. She was knowledgeable and friendly until the very end. Our food runner heard us speaking in spanish and came to talk to us and made us feel comfortable. I didn’t get her name but she was from Mexico!
The food was great and the place looks great.

The Kansas City steak was SO good. Everyone had a wonderful evening. Our server, Terra I believe, was lovely. Again, Kansas City steak so good it was insane. 10/10 recommend this keg. Service was awesome, food was amazing.

Had a reservation, got a window table as requested. Two tables across the aisle stayed empty so felt safer and it was quieter. Server friendly but not hovering. Scallop appy tasty, salads good portion, steaks good, broccoli crisp. Lots of choice for wine. Brownie and ice cream topped it off.

Made reservation for special occasion they told me that they had someone with the same first name had to sit somewhere else even though I had a reservation. Whats the point of making reservations if they are useless. Every time I visit keg the quality drops.

Review based on the keg redirecting us to the Dunsmuir location. We showed up for a reservation at the specific steakhouse and was notified it was closed. The receptionist gave us a number to call another location and they were able to get us in right away with a reservation.

This Keg Steakhouse + Bar - Alberni has always been my favourite restaurant. When I feel like going to enjoy good food, this is the one I always love to go. Today I recommended to my daughter, Son-in-law and my grandson. They all agree that this is the restaurant tops the best in town.

our server Sohale was legit and classy. We were seated sort of close to the loud kitchen even though our section wasn't particularly full. But that's okay. We were served/ushered by several different people, including a man in a suit and tie who had a rather good hairline for somebody his age. He seemed like a higher up, which made us feel like higher ups, especially cause he was the one who brought the actual steaks. He also opened the door for us on our way out. My cocktail was a pretty good size. There were several moments when I felt very sublime. Overall, very positive experience, and we will definitely be back on the next full moon.
