Good old Keg. Steak was great. Sangria was good. The prime rib sliders were a pleasant surprise.

Todo un acierto para una ocasión especial. La carne es increíble, aunque los acompañamientos decepcionaron un poco... el servicio, de 10. Para repetir

Best value. Quality menu. The steak and food is consistent every time. Consistent between locations. Easy to get a reservation or option to dine in the lounge area. The steak is as good or better than some of the high-end steak houses in the city but at affordable prices. I've been supporting the Keg for over 20 years. You will always get my business!!!

We all had a lovely dinner. Everything was fine. Except for babies / toddlers crying right near us. it was my birthday dinner .
Our suggestion would be to lump,families with babies / toddlers in one section and not all over the place ( crying, running around)

This review would have been a 5 if not for the annoying music. Listening to "Edgar Winter Frankenstein " was ridiculous and annoying for such a dark cozy steakhouse. Most of the music was totally wrong for the ambiance. Do yourselves a favour and run a nice Jazz chanel. You can't go wrong. Food was awesome and waitress was great. Don't ruin it with loud obnoxious music.

Cheers,

Dean Stevens

Appetizers and main menu items were served on piping hot dishes plates which we appreciated kept the food hot overall experience for this Keg at this location was very good. I have had dinner with my son at a keg in mississauga where the both our steaks were chewy, definitely not AAA. But at York Keg i have never been dissapointed. I have dined there with a TSE friend since 2000. The Artichoke dip was amazing.

Great place for lunch, dinner, or just a drink after work. Steaks are great, and they have many other food options as well. This downtown location is a cut above other Keg locations. Very good wine selection.

For our annual Girls Christmas Dinner: the food was, as always, very good; our server knowledgeable and helpful.

The noise level was exceptionally loud making it difficult for conversation.

Sadly, one of our party had her wallet stolen.

In town overnight for an early appointment and decided on The Keg for a nice dinner. It was very busy and somehow, even with an Open Table reservation and us arriving early they forgot us in the bar well past our reservation time. When I questioned the people at the front they went through the whole check in routine and gave us a table where my seat was at the top of a small flight of stairs and in the aisle. Not good at all. Instead of making an issue we went ahead and we were glad we did. The service and food were great.

It was a bit loud being seated behind the bar, we could hear the bartenders chatting and using the blender. However once the restaurant got busier the noise all faded into one. We had made a reservation and the restaurant was empty when we arrived so it would have made more sense to seat arriving guests at a quiet location and only seat the area behind the bar once the more ideal tables were taken.
The meal was okay, the bbq chicken was quite dry.
Our server was great though, very kind and attentive.

My friend and I had a very busy afternoon, taking in a concert at Roy Thomson hall and then shopping at the Eaton Centre. So by the time we arrived at The Keg we were both tired and hungry. We were about half an hour early but luckily the staff were able to accommodate us and took us to our table right away. We had a thoroughly delightful meal and were able to relax and unwind. Terrific ending to the day.

We had a great time, despite the fact that we got lost in downtown Toronto, they still had a table for us! Our waitress was very accommodating; we were not even watching the time! We were having so much fun, we just about missed closing time!! I would definitely recommend this restaurant. We had a wonderful time, the food was great, the drinks were awesome, the ambiance was comfortable and cozy and everyone was friendly and accommodating!! Great job!!!

It was my SO’s birthday and we went to celebrate. I’ve never been to The Keg so this was a pleasant experience. Our waiter was very kind and very patient with us. The overall vibe in the restaurant was really nice. Not too dark and not too loud. The food was delicious and cooked to my liking. We even got a free slice of cake for the birthday. Would definitely come back just for the service!!

This experience at the Keg was disappointing!!! I go about 4 times a year and get the same dinner and it has always been perfect until this time. My steak was way underdone and chewy. The garlic potatoes had a crust on them as if they had been sitting under a heater for a while and the mushrooms didn't taste as good as they usually do. They gave me another steak which was better but I found it to still be chewy. (Terryaki steak) same as I always get. never been chewy before. In the Keg's defense it could be just a bad cut of meat. they tried hard to compensate. Gave us free cappuccino and dessert. Unfortunately even the cheesecake was not good. The Keg always used to have the best New York style cheesecake but now they make it themselves and the crust was too sweet and the texture was weird. My friend had filet mignon and crème brule and her dinner was great. I guess I need to change my choice for next time. I must say it will be quite a while before I try the Keg again. That experience really turned me off. The waiter and manager were awesome though so it was not their fault and I appreciate them trying to make the experience better.
I will eventually try again... but I will get the filet mignon next time! Thank you.

I made a reservation a week ahead, but when we arrived (4 of us), we were told that we needed to wait for our table. We arrived at 5:50 and the reservation was for 6:00. I felt we should have been seated immediately and not given a buzzer to wait for our table since I had made a reservation. We were not seated in the best of spots, very close to the washrooms. I had indicated in our reservation that it was a birthday celebration so it was disappointing to have been placed in this location, particularly since I had made a reservation. Food was good, our server was not very attentive that evening.

Steak was prepared exactly what I asked for. Blue Not many steak places get it right. But The Keg consistently grills the steak to your liking.

Onlinereservierung hat gut geklappt.
Haben schönen Tisch am Fenster bekommen.
Toller Kellnern, der sich mit Namen vorgestellt hat.
Steaks waren perfekt, genauso wie bestellt und in der Karte beschrieben. Medium und Medium-well. Es gab Brot mit Butter vorab und als wir nachbestellt hatten, wurde das sich zügig gebracht. Toller Wein. Würden es immer wieder buchen!
