We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday at the Keg on Dunsmuir and it was our first time dining there. We ordered steaks which come with a selected side dish. I chose the mashed potatoes with my peppercorn steak and my boyfriend got fries with his New York striploin. The meats were so soft, juicy, and cooked just as we requested. The Italian wine Masi Valpolicella Corvina & Rondinella was a fantastic addition to our dishes.
Our server was very professional and helpful.
The restaurant's interior design is very modern and fancy. Clearly, a lot of money was invested in it.
The atmosphere is very calm and welcoming. Background music is playing but isn't too loud.
Our desserts were on the house as it was a birthday. That was very generous and nice.
It was definitely one of the best restaurants I've ever been to and would recommend it to others.

Not a romantic location . Jason , the host, was amazing. He did a great job medigating an uncomfortable situation of over powering “atmosphere”.

It was for my birthday lunch and the waitress wasn't attentive, we ordered as soon as we got seated as my friends had a meeting to get back to. The food took a long time to come evern though we told the waitress we were in a hurry. My friend asked for mash potatoes and it was cold and the coleslaw next to her burger was stale and seemed day old. My other friend ordered a salad and she said it was gross and not fresh. My lobster and shrimp salad was so so, the greens were OK but the seafood was overcooked cold and rubbery. We were disappointed in the overall experience as this is usual for the keg. Needless to say we will not consider going back to this location. Also it was my birthday lunch and it wasn't acknowledged or even got cake.

We were celebrating our anniversary.
As we made reservation through Opentable in advance, they sent us upstairs which was quite and cozier than the first floor. (However, we were not able to order Happy hour menu on the 2nd floor)
When I made reservation, I requested cheesecake with 'Happy Anniversary' on the plate.
I was not sure if they have got my message, and yes they did.
They brought the tasty cheesecake with the message, and they even treated us(for free!)
We were very happy to be there and we would recall. We will also make reservation through Open Table again as it is convenient. Thank you!

Keg is going downhill. We've been loyal customers for years but sadly on our past few visits quality is plummeting and value for the dollar just isn't there any more.

If you don't feel like plain steak, not much else on menu. Years ago they did interesting things like encrusting a steak with goat cheese and pecans but now, there is not much of interest on the menu.

The Keg never disappoints. Friendly service, and quiet atmosphere make it a desirable draw. For the sports fanatics, there is also a sports bar - and it is fairly isolated from the rest of the dining room.

It was really fun girls night out! Food is delicious as always but service wasn’t that good if I must say. I wish the server could be more attentive so we didn’t have to have empty glasses on the table so long. We all wanted to order more drinks but felt like forever to get the server’ attention. What annoyed us most was after the server gave us the dessert menu, he started keep coming to see if we want to order EVERY 1-2min. As we all work in a Food industry, we assumed that he doesn’t want us to stay anymore so just ordered 1 dessert, finished quickly and headed to another place. Maybe we got a new server? Or we might have annoyed him?

Had a group of us here for dinner before a concert at Rogers Arena. The food is always fantastic. Love the classic dinner with blue cheese wedge salad to start, sour dough bread and then prime rib for the entree. Can’t go wrong!!

in all our waiter for us did not look like she cared for us
until we paid she was caring for her other costumers more then us maybe
we look like we didn't have money or something as she only came to get our orders then she was gone
we had questions but we had to ask a other waiter questions he was more helpful
myself and my wife we both work good jobs
i don't know but my wife and i still love this Keg we will still come back
we been coming to this Keg for the last 2 years and we will still come back to enjoy food and the awesome experience
if i didn't say anything ya

Came in earlier than our reservation and were seated immediately by a very accommodating staff. Waiter, Etienne, explained the menu and specials and was very friendly and gave us good service. The food was extraordinary. My husband (picky, picky eater) said his prime rib was the best he’s had in three years. I ordered the lobster and steak special. My half lobster was delicious but the steak was too well done as I had ordered medium but there was no pink. Even so, it was delicious and I enjoyed it. We would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or date.

My father's prime rib was well over cooked. It was supposed to be medium rare, however the piece that he was given was medium-well/well done. Very dry and overall he was very disappointed.
