I went in to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. We were seated right away, given we had a reservation. I ordered the bacon wrapped chicken and my boyfriend ordered the Top Sirloin; both were delicious. He was treated with a free birthday dessert (chocolate brownie). We enjoyed our time at this restaurant. Will visit again when in town.

First of all, the service was excellent, from arrival to the delivery of my daughter’s free birthday Billy Miner pie, which was also, as always, excellent.

Our appetizers were also amazing: the escargot, cheese bread and Mushrooms Neptune were exactly as we remembered and expected from many other Keg meals. (So many!) And we all ate too much during the appetizer course, and in fairness to our mains, we should have stopped there. That said, I think the Keg welcomes feedback that allows for improvement, so ... the burger and fried chicken from the small plate menu were both meh. The burger was overdone, which was a real shame, because I think it would otherwise have been much better. Also, the cheese was so very orange, which to me signals food colouring which signals lower quality cheddar. My husbands fried chicken was fried pieces of boneless chicken breast, sort of like round chicken strips. Some people prefer that to juicy, on-bone chicken, but he really doesn’t, and it would have been nice to know in advance. I tasted it ... the coating was nice and crunchy but the overall experience was dry.

So ... there is your challenge, Keg ... we love you and want to see you at your best. Please give your cheerful and efficient staff delicious food to serve.

Thank you for the pie, and for hosting us for many many birthday family dinners over the years.

Under staffed, slow service and a few dirty tables around that took a long time to get cleaned up. Waited about 10mins at our table before we were assigned a server as we were told no one was servicing that section. Not a Keg Experience

It will be great if you had more food choices on the happy hour menu. The patio at the Yaletown branch is a no-fail spot for important business meetings and after viewing of downtown properties or after i host open houses. I am very happy with the Keg.

I have ordered the salmon and it was very over cooked - I was sharing my plate with my 2 year old daughter and she wouldn’t eat any of it. The salmon was very dry.

My husband and mom ordered the steak and lobster, it was ok - the steak was a bit undercooked for a medium rare. You would expect more from a popular steak house for having a medium rare steak cooked right.

Service was ok (regular).

Noise, it’s quite loud in there - so we end up having to talk louder so that we could hear each other; it was quite annoying. The noise was more than the comfortable level for us.

We might not come back to this location for dinner. But I might come for drinks only as they have a pretty nice patio (top floor).

Great quality meat, asparagus, and fries. It's difficult not to over- or undercook asparagus, and these were perfect. Drinks came quickly, white cloth napkins and the tablecloth were sparkling clean. Attentive service without being obtrusive. Limited menu, but we use the Keg as a place for good quality steak and ribs. On reflection, the giant shrimp were marvellous too. The tricky part of meat, fish, and veg dinners is to get the temperature right for each element when brought together to the table. I don't know how they do it so well. The other thing was our special request. It's lovely when a restaurant pays attention to them. The Keg (Yaletown) did.

Ambiance was great once it got dark, and the food was worth the price. We were able to make terrible jokes all night uninterrupted, and the only thing I felt was off is that there weren't a ton of options for non alcoholic drinks.

Highly recommend this restaurant. It was excellent food and service. My 2 young kids ate everything on their plates, including the vegetables. Everything tasted delicious. I ordered the beef medallions with shrimp and my husband had the tuna. We gave these 2 thumbs up. Our waitress, Andrea, was exceptionally courteous and we had a great evening.

I got to the Keg just before 7pm on Tuesday. I was sitting alone for a good 20 minutes and had 2 whiskey sour drinks which were really good. I asked to server if he could make them a little more frothy and they came as requested. It was a good start to my experience. My date arrived shortly after and ordered a bellini (which is her favorite drink at the Keg) and was not expecting what was delivered. Apparently there are 2 different bellini options which she was unaware of. The server did not let us know this. In order to not make her feel uncomfortable, thinking she had made a mistake, I kindly asked the server about the bellini she was familiar with to which he said yes we have that drink. She received her drink and was content. Throughout our drinks and dinner, our server had taken our order for another round and it took some time for our drinks to arrive. He came back to our table empty handed and had to ask what drinks we were having again. Though, we had stuck to the same drinks all night. We ordered the Ribeye steak and split the plate 50/50 with an extra twice baked potatoe. It was delicious! Experience could have been better but overall 3/5. Better service next time. It did seem like it was our servers first month or week. We sat on the patio in the farthest corner to the left after getting out of the elevator. I've been there a few times and will most likely be back. Cheers!

I was not impressed with our server. Our table never got bread and butter to start. He never came to fill out our water glasses. On top, when I asked if I can get a Thai rice bowl without chicken, he said we are really busy so he doesn't think kitchen would do that. He never offered to ask a the kitchen.
I will not be going there. The food was really good thou.

We had a fantastic evening celebrating Megan's Birthday Anniversary! We waited in the lounge until our seats on the patio were available. We enjoyed dinner and drinks until the rain began. However we were accommodated in the dining room to complete our evening with dessert.
We highly recommend The Keg Yaletown for the best celebrations ever!

When we arrived there was a young lady cleaning the entrance way. Her body language told me that she was obviously cranky about it, and that I had interrupted her opening the door. She was ultimately the one to lead us to the table. The table, we thought, was not ideal given that the place was empty and we had made reservations. After a while she was able to get our table changed. But again, she had the ghastly body language the whole time. (haughty facial expression, limp lazy posture and short clipped sentences) The food was fair but took a while to get there. Our server was great though so we gave a good tip.

Also I feel people making reservations should be able to sit where they want, its seems that there is some weird first come first serve policy for the patio, and also we were not allowed to sit on the first floor. Maybe its because we are not uber wealthy people that have nothing to do but show up right at opening time, the big spenders have the right away I guess.

Wife got wrong steak, forgot my crab add on but everyone has a bad day once and a while, myself included.

“Keg size” drinks now come in shorter glasses they tried to explain to me that the recipe has not changed however the ratios of mixes have changed and I would give the drinks 3 out of 10 tops.

Likely looking for a new go to restaurant. Keg is backsliding.

Our family was disappointed with the service last night. It was my mother in laws 60th birthday and we selected the keg as it has always been consistent in service and the food. Unfortunately the service was very poor last night. The server was very rushed, forgot a number of things that had been requested and it impacted the overall experience.

We went there for our 10th anniversary. I mentioned that when I reserved on OpenTable. They brought us a delicious dessert and wrote Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the plate. It was really beautiful.
The food and service here is generally excellent.
I love the fireplaces. It's a really warm atmosphere.
The server was not aware, however, that the keg size drinks are a larger size. She had told me the keg size Caesar had 2 ounces instead of just 1 ounce of alcohol. So I asked her if the keg size drinks just had more alcohol or were larger drinks and she said they just have more alcohol.
Other than that, though, the server was excellent.

We like to eat at The Keg when we are in Vancouver or Victoria on our boat. In Vancouver we usually eat at the Granville Island location, but this time we were closer to Yaletown so we went there. The bar takes up most of the first floor, so for dinner we were taken to the second floor and led to a tiny table between two very loud parties of 4+ people. We could hardly hear each other talk, much less have an enjoyable meal. There were other, larger 2-top tables in quieter locations - did we just not look good enough for those tablets? We will never know, and probably will never go back to this location.
