After covid starts, this was the first time we went to a restaurant as a family. Place was nicely arranged with consideration of social distancing. Steak was good, service was good till some point. The guy working there ( I don't want to put his name here) was constantly asking if everything is good or do we need something with a smiling face. This smiling face was changed after I paid the check. I gave tip but looks like he didn't like it. It was obvious from his face.

My friends and I go to the Keg on Alberni a lot.. I was really disappointed with the food service. My friend had received his food before I got mine. There was to much salt on both the hamburger and the fries. The hamburger was on up to the Kegs standards.

We had a very pleasant dinner in the patio. Our server was attentive, steak prepared as requested. Several Cocktail hour drinks offerings and we ordered the Heineken and red wine.

The table we had wasn't great... even though I flagged the event as a special occasion for our daughter when I made the reservation and asked for a booth when we arrived.

Felt like we were at any other casual chain restaurant with the service and surroundings and food mediocre, but the prices were high for something a little more formal and intimate.

Indoor ambience was okay, i was expecting it to be more stylish. Food was great! Filet Mignon was very soft and melting in the mouth.. Added scallops and shrimps 4 pieces for each not recommended. Side of lobster tail is worth to try. Added side of double mashed potatoes with bacon was great side for the meat, recommended. Overall it was a great experience with the service of amazing server we had, thank you!

My partner and I were in need of a date night, and we are so glad to have chosen The Keg on Alberni. The setting was perfect, the food was exceptional, and the service was great. Every staff member was so kind and welcoming. I would definitely come to this keg location again.

They put curry on escargots! I mean, who does that? All that we tasted was curried garlic butter “topping” with texture of a pesto. Menu doesn’t say curry.
Everything else was great. Service top notch.

Curry escargot yuck

Was a good experience overall the server was fantastic, went over and above so that I felt a bit guilty about being difficult. The food was okay, it feels like there may be a reasonable explanation but the colour of the steak was off (no gradient of red, but rather purple on a medium cook) and visually it was not great. That may have biased the experience, but always solid and a good restaurant. Will be back.

Just OK as a far as ambience and food. Server was excellent. Hostess was ok. Originally sat us in the dark tent , when we asked to move to the open patio they were helpful.
Just wondered why they us where they did to start with.

It was a very pleasant experience. Even though we were running late, the hosts were still able to accommodate our reservation and we were seated within 10 mins. Once we got seated, we were greeted by the server. He was very friendly and checked up on us multiple times during the night. The food and drink was one of the best out of all of the Kegs we’ve been to. Definitely would recommend this location!

First time visiting this location, and most likely the last. Overall, not really impressed, it's just ok. Although the initial service was great, as the restaurant was not that busy, but as time progressed, and the patio started to fill, the service started to deteriorate. The "Happy Hour" menu appeared very limited and the pricing was not a good value for "Happy Hour". The 2-hour dining window is strictly enforced, which is disappointing, as the time was approaching we were being frequently disturbed to settle up, and from our standpoint, it seemed it was time to "get out". With paying customers who are eating and drinking, this is what I will take away from The Keg, especially as I am trying to support a local business.
Additionally, with this location, it is very noisy as the patio faces West Georgia, and you have to deal with Vancouver's never-ending "sirens". And if you are looking for some sun, try the Yaletown location, as the surrounding building completely blocks the sun.

The Keg at the end of the day is a chain restaurant, trying to be "high end", sadly it misses the mark as its poor value for the price paid.

During COVID restrictions, the Alberni Keg has safe, social distancing on their 3 patios nailed with plexi separating the tables and warm propane heaters keeping it comfortable. The staff are amazing and attentive. It's my go to get away to break up a solitary week.
