    At first there was a miscommunication about our table being ready. One hostess told us our table was still being ready but after 15min. I asked a different hostess and she said they were waiting for our guests to arrive and we already had 4 of the 5 and so they sat us. Aside from that, the rest of the experience was excellent, our waitress, the food, the drinks, it was fantastic!

    Slow service. Got sat next to a family with kids. Thankfully the kids were well behaved. Server seemed lost. We ordered food that we never got, but we're not charged for so seems the server did not remember. Server did not write the orders down. Recommend servers write the orders down to avoid missing items customers order. Overall quality of Keg continues to decline.

    The meal was mouth watering, delicious. My favourite steak memories are all keg memories. I always love the dark intimacy of a Keg restaurant, but some of the tables are too close together to be totally comfortable.

    We were in a rush as we were going to a show next door at Meridian Hall. Our server Neil was awesome - he rushed our order and bill through so we could be on time for the show. The Keg Burger was awesome, along with the cauliflower bites.

    The Keg has always been a go to dining location, but now with rising food and service costs and smaller portions, one has to stop and think before going out for dinner. The frequency of our visits has declined and we've been eating in more. I still recommend The Keg when anyone is in the mood for a great steak, excellent service and well priced wines to choose from.

    Tables for 2 are way too close to each other. I say at a table for 2 and it felt more like a party of 6 because of how close the other 2 tables were. The only part that sucked about the evening. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    The Keg Esplanade was just okay. We have enjoyed The Keg many times over the years and the steaks are always great. Our experience this time was fair to not great because we were seated by the kitchen and along the highest traffic zone in the restaurant. We asked to be moved and after about 15 minutes we were moved to across the aisle also beside the kitchen. So much for our intimate evening at The Keg. We usually enjoy the Keg Esplanade but we will try another location next time.

    First time dining at this location and I would not recommend. It was very drafty for one. Secondly, we were celebrating a special occasion and the server never asked us about it. Additionally, she wasn't not around very much... not the typical service I've received at other locations (king / York st). Had to ask repeatedly for water and other items. Felt very rushed and concerned about other tables. Food wise it was usual keg quality, although they were not able to cook my husbands blue steak correctly. Admittedly more difficult, they did offer to cook it more as it was cold in the center but he declined as then it would be rare. Overall, the food was good but i was disappointed by the service.

    Been a while since I ordered the prime rib (it's usually a steak when I'm at The Keg) and I had forgotten how amazing it is! Perfectly medium rare, nicely flavoured. And the service at this location was second to none.

    To whom it might concern, I am writing this to let you know about my recent experience with Keg at esplanade location. I've been going to The Keg to celebrate special days for many years. This Valentine's Day, I tried a new location and was really let down. I booked a table a week ahead, but when I got there, they put me at a bad table in the hallway. It was busy, and I didn't like sitting where people kept walking by because it made me feel anxious. I asked if we could move to another table since I saw some empty ones, but they said those were booked and I'd have to wait 40 minutes for a different table. What made me upset was seeing some people get tables without having booked like I did. I've always liked The Keg, but this time I didn't have a good experience. They didn't help me when I asked for a better table, even though I planned ahead. This made me think twice about going back. I hope they start paying more attention to people's requests so everyone can have a nice time. It was really important to me because They ruined our night.

    I’m usually a big 10/10 fan of the keg. So I’m not gonna blame this entirely on the waitress herself. But the service was kind of bad from what I usually expect, I’ve been spending my valentines at the kegs across Canada for 4 years straight now. But once again I believe the service was poor because the fact it was busy from valentines, but besides that the food was pretty on pair with other kegs & nothing to complain about that.
