The service was good, but not what I`d call attentive. The dining room was a bit cold, but we were there early (5:30) and it did warm up as more people arrived.
I was disappointed with my ``seared`` tuna meal - it was cold (I was warned it was a cold dish, but I think seared tuna is meant to be at least room temperature) and definitely not seared ... it had some kind of cooked outer layer, about 1 mm of grey.
My husband`s meal was OK (steak Oscar) - the steak was a bit tough.

Everything was good just a bit too noisy where we were seated...perhaps something they could look at when seating couples to have a quieter section...

Went before a concert. Food was great, service was excellent. The Keg is getting even more expensive. Overall a delightful evening.

We always enjoy The Keg, just wish it wasn't SO expensive BUT it's most certainly worth it. We leave so happy every time and talk about our steak for days after lol

The Keg Kingston is in the lower level of the former Kingston Whig Standard building that offers an ambience of a basement bistro encased in heritage brick walls. The service staff are very friendly and impeccably turned out. The menu provides a wide range of entrees - steak being their forte. They also have a good wine list. Once they've met you they treat you like family. I would highly recommend Keg Kingston if you want 5 Star surroundings, service, and a unique and exciting menu.

I booked a reservation and put we had 2 wheelchairs. When we arrived it is not accessible at all. Good thing we both walk a little. Had to use my husband's arm and walls. Why did you not tell me when I clearly stated it? I think you should put on your web site it is inaccesstible. It was unexpected and delightful to have the surprise dessert with a sparkler on it as we were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary.

I had asked for a quiet table when I made the reservation online but it was not a quiet table as we were close to the people near us and could hear their conversation. My meal was good, only complaint is that the fish was abit dry. Server was excellent.

The service was great, the food also. The only thing I didn't like was the noise level, but that is not a fault of the restaurant. There seemed to be a couple of tables celebrating and that can get noisy.

We enjoyed a nice family dinner at the Keg Kingston with my Mom and sister. The service was excellent. John, our server was very friendly and helpful. The evening manager stopped by to say hello. Food came out fast and was excellent as always at the Keg. This was my first visit to the Kingston location and I would go back. It was nice and quiet, great for conversation.

In our city, we have a ton of great original restaurants, so the Keg is never my first choice.
This experience was terrific though, food was good and service was outstanding. The restaurant itself is dark, a bit noisy for ease of conversation, and feels disconnected to the downtown atmosphere I prefer. But I’m a downtown patio fan so it’s not really the Keg’s fault :)

The waiter was fantastic. Also we were running late so I called and the hostess was very helpful and kept our reservation. The food was the typical Keg fare. Great steaks.

Cole was a knowledgeable source for information on the Kingston and Queen’s scene. Great table service. Excellent wine list, led us to a Malbec. Steak and lobster was excellent, capped off by tasty soufflé. Will return soon.

They had already run out of prime rib and our reservation was for 7pm. Prime Rib is the reason I go to The Keg!
Our 10 year old son was with us. Typically he's provided with a complimentary crudite of carrots/dip, crackers, and fresh fruit. This is the first time it wasn't offered. I guess it was too busy as our server repeatedly told us.
Btw...my rib steak was to die for!!

The food was great, the service was fantastic but we found that the tables were very close to each other, and the volume was very loud. It made having a private conversation very difficult. I would go again but I would put more research into finding a slow night.

Waiter, (Artel ?) started off friendly etc. Never asked how our apps tasted, came to check on our food after we were almost done, which is very out of the ordinary for a Keg!! Our dirty plates sat on our table for over 10 min....again, never happens at other Kegs, they are usually very attentive. Also, we were celebrating our anniversary and told him when he cleared our plates that we (our daughter included) wanted to order dessert when he was free to take our order. Another 6 min went by, then he came with Billy Miner pie, which I know they tend to bring for free when you are celebrating, except 1)we didn’t want that and planned to order cheesecake and 2) maybe our daughter also wanted dessert....like I told him we were going to order??!! Very poor service for a Keg restaurant. He was friendly but not trained very well. So we left with no dessert, as we had plans and didn’t want to wait another 10 min for a dessert we would have ordered! It wasn’t very busy either so who knows why he was so slow. Then we noticed on the bill it said Billy Miner pie free, when we sent it back and never ate it!! We had been to this Keg many times in the past and had many bad experiences and decided to try it again after 2 yrs, won’t be returning. Other Kegs are MUCH better service for sure.

I had the lobster dinner. It was huge, fresh and delicious! My husband had steak and a half lobster. It too was delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly and well seasoned. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly.

The food was good as would be expected from The Keg. We did have to send one steak back as we had requested medium/well on it and it came to the table as medium rare. We also had to ask for our bread, apparently another table got bread. Our waiter went and got us two orders of bread right away.

My dining experience was excellent.. to say the least they the staff really care about how your enjoying the food if for any reason you don’t like it or something is really wrong it’s taken care of ,in this day and age that’s very seldom. I don’t take advantage ever of a free hand out but if it’s not right you should have to beg for a refund . On a final note the food dining experience is something to be proud of especially when treating your family or friends they are quit happy with the Keg .. regards mike Tomlin
