Service was excellent! My wife’s meal came out undercooked , we sent it back and they put her steak back on the grill. They were very apologetic, they took that meal off the bill and also didn’t charge us for the desserts. Over all the food was excellent, very tasty and very well presented.

Great service, service was amazing and attentive without being over bearing. The only issue I had was that it was fairly loud where we were seated so conversation was hard

We were in Vancouver for 6 nights and actually went to dinner two evenings at The Keg. Food was very good ,and Server the first night was excellent. Second night server was good. Gal's seating us were friendly, and actually allowed us to sit at a different table than the one we were originally assigned to. I would recommend this restaurant.

The service was average at best. Our appetizer was removed from the table by the server when our main meal came even though we were not done with it. Never asked if we were done with it. He left the bread on the table but removed our paid appetizer. I told him about it, he apologized and said he would bring back crackers for the mistake but he never did.
We asked twice for lemon for our water, never came. The food was ok, but overall it with was just an ok experience.

Came here for a lunch meeting - the food was to regular Keg standard however the service was a little slow and inattentive. The cappuccino was flat (unfrothy) and lukewarm, served without offer of sugar or sweetener. Didn't bother to complain as we were wrapping up our meeting.

Nothing special in that the food is like you could do on a BBQ at home. Culinary talents-not really....special flavouring not evident...sauces OK but not chef level. Mediocre food, good service but won't be rushing back. Restaurant was rather busy though

This was our 30th wedding anniversary meal and I’d included the “anniversary” in the booking but not one mention of it. The food was okay but the whole thing seemed very rushed to us and yet they weren’t busy. Example - bought the entrees when appetisers not finished. We ate in the ones in Toronto and Niagara Falls and both were better

We had a fabulous dinner at The Keg Steakhouse. The service was from Nicole was outstanding and the prime rib delicious! The portions were generous, the salad fresh and tasty, and the mini-brownie much more than mini-sized! It was exactly the perfect choice for us before boarding the SkyTrain at the City Centre Station to the airport for our evening flight. What a well-managed operation with employees who are well-trained and dedicated to their employer! A memorable evening!

It's my first time to visit this KEG location. I was pleasantly surprised with the nice interior. The hostesses were a little young and inexperienced... but I got a very nice table upstairs with advanced booking. We went there to celebrate a birthday and got a free birthday cake (Billy Miner Pie) and a candle on it. It was very special! I am already planning my next visit there to celebrate another special occasion. PS: They need a baby changing table in the washroom though...

Hadn't been to The Keg in over 20 years. Had been given a gift certificate so my husband and I went to the Dunsmuir location after the theatre at the QE. Food was certainly good. We were surprised that not much had changed in 20 years!? I guess the idea is not to mess with a winning formula but we expected some added diversity given the changes in the city in the past 20 years.
