Food excellent but service bad! After two earlier great experiences in Whistler and Ottawa we made the choice to go for quality in Toronto as well. Didicated service from the waiters is one of the strong USP’s of The Keg. Our experience in Toronto was different. No dedication, not removing dishes from the starters in time but halfway the headcourse and last but not least bad hurry at the end whilst around the bar still were enough people! Dessert was just served and she came with the bill and only ten minutes later there was the payment-terminal. A bad end and for us a reason to reconsider the Keg when we travel in Canada (as we quite often do).

The Keg is constantly great steaks at a decent price ! Great choices of appetizers, awesome double baked potatoe. A little more amount of peppercorn steak would be appreciated when served - but otherwise always a good meal !

Prime rib was delicious, as promised, with a wonderful jus and plenty of spicy horseradish. I had a twiced-baked potato that had a nicely crisped top, but I wish I had gone with a simple baked potato. The prime rib came with a heap of crunchy deep fried onions, which were tasty but heavy, and I envied the garnish of a few cooked vegetables that the steak-eaters got. The star of each meal was the meat.

Others had steaks, all well seasoned and cooked exactly to their liking. The prime rib comes medium (or more done if you ask, I assume) but was tender and juicy. Someone ordered their steak "Chicago", which means it has good char on the outside, and he liked it very much. Another ordered the blue cheese topper. I've had blue cheese on my steaks before, and even had a blue cheese walnut butter, but this is more of a blend of cheese and some breadcrumbs to make a "cap" for the steak.

There are options such as a burger, chicken, salmon, etc. if someone in your party isn't inclined toward steak. There is a vegetarian cauliflower "steak" (I actually was tempted, as thick cuts of cauliflower hold up well to grilling). There are several meatless salads too, but they all have cheese. If you are vegetarian and would be thrilled to have a cauliflower steak, go here, but this is a steakhouse, and the menu reflects that.

Some oddities/negatives:
- we had tag-team servers. I've never seen that before.
- the wine list could be more adventurous, it was a little disappointing.
- there were points where we felt the servers were upselling items, such as the blue cheese topper. It worked, though, so I can't really complain!

Recommend Tuna Tartar and a bottle of Meiomi. Of course the prime rib was perfection. Would have preferred sitting away from families.

Went for my ladies Bday, food was fantastic - wine recommendation was great, and not unfairly priced (which, I’ll admit was a shock). Our waitress was attentive, bright and engaging. It wasn’t my first time to the York Street Keg, but this last visit reminded my why I’ll continue to go back!

Four steaks out of five were good; one was tough and not served hot. Baked potato cool to warm. Excellent wine list. Good table, shielded from extreme noise level but general noise still quite high. Good service; good value for money.

I've been to The Keg many times, in many cities, and at this particular location quite often. I felt the steak quality had gone down a bit or maybe it was just the steak I had. I'm used to a certain level of meat at The Keg. It's not Hy's or Ruth Criss but for the price at The Keg, quality has always been very good. Not this time. And no, I didn't tell the server. My friend and I were deep in convo and I had a DL for when I needed to leave so I ate it. It wasn't inedible, just lesser than usual.

We took a few folks from our client out for a dinner to kindle our relationship. We picked The Keg because of close-by steaks. But, now that we have eaten there - we would pick it for it's just amazing food and well selected wine list. Just writing what we ate is almost a review sufficient in itself - bacon-wrapped scallops with awesome sauce, Chicago style bacon-wrapped medium rare blue cheese-crusted filet mignon served with 2 bottles of Stag's Leap Cabernet followed by a Billy Miner coffee (Irish cream & Kahlua).
As you say that - you can almost taste it.
The service was equally delicious. Extremely attentive. Refined cooperation for table service among the staff.
Please do your tongue a favor and get yourself to The Keg.

We went for our Anniversary celebration and the service was just okay/moderate. But I understand that people have good and bad days and the service received was good enough. We've been to other Keg locations where the server tried to get to know us and if we were celebrating a birthday or a celebration, they would try to make it special. Another disappointment was that we received mushy and fishy lobsters which kind of ruined the mood. While they apologized and took the lobster part off the bill ($17), they didn't do anything to go above and beyond to make us satisfied. Service and food was fair but the ambiance was nice.

We were out for a special date night. Steak was what we wanted and the Keg delivered in spades. The steaks were cooked to perfection, the wine complimented the meat, the escargot were hot and garlicky. We were very happy with the whole evening.

He music was way to loud. We had to shout to hear each other across the table. Veggies were served steamed and dry, very bland with no taste or flavour. For the price point you can find so many better places in the city

Went here for a get together with friends, had a reservation, was too hot inside, asked to be seated outside. Drinks were good, the food wasn't anything special. I had been looking forward to this meal, and I wasn't at all impressed. Only thing that was good was the drink specials. The service was sub par, had to flag the waitress down to get our bills, and to get more drinks. Will not be going back to this Keg location.

Every time we go to this location, there is an issue as to where we would like to sit. The ladies that greet you are not friendly and clearly have issues if you do not like where they place you. The only way you can change your seat is speaking to a manager.
Any late arrivers in your party are greeted by the hostess with a scowl on her face! Very disappointing service and the start of ones dining experience. We always meet here to celebrate our friendship. Time to find another Keg location!

Met up with friends I hadn’t seen in a long time. Our sever was not very attentive. I’m a regular customer and always appreciate your good service. My lobster was cold so that was as disappointing as well.
I am returning Wednesday so I hope my experience is as I have had in the last.
