Haven’t been to The Keg in years, my boyfriend and I were really looking forward to this dinner but ultimately ended up super disappointed with pretty much everything. Had a reservation but still waited nearly half hour to be seated, only to be seated at the table right next to the noisy kitchen and also had air conditioning blowing directly above us so we were freezing. All of the food was very meh. Definitely not worth our money in the end.

Steaks are very good, as expected. Tried the cauli mash...very tasty and health. Our server, Jonah, did a wonderful job and added to our overall dining experience.

The Keg was a pleasant surprise within walking distance of The Westin downtown. Service was friendly and attentive, the Prime Rib perfect, and the prices amazing. I would have paid USD for what I paid in CAD without hesitation. Highly recommended.

We had an incredible time.
Samantha our server was extraordinary. She looked after up but did not hover nor hurry us.
We had the perfect table to celebrate two birthdays.
The food was wonderful and the two bottles of Prosecco didn't hurt either.
We can't wait to return.

Another good meal. 5pm reservation was quite early and the restaurant was quiet. Would have liked to get a more secluded table at that time as the restaurant filled up quite quickly. Food was good as usual.

I took my girlfriend here for her 24th birthday. We love The Keg and for almost every special occasion we celebrate at one of their restaurants. I always get the New York Striploin and my girlfriend got a burger this time. The burger was fine, according to her, yet the New York Striploin was extremely burnt and inedible. I absolutely love steak and after tasting it, I just couldn't eat it. The waitress asked how it was and I was honest with her, telling her I was struggling to eat it because of how burnt (or "charred") it was. She got the manager to come speak to us and she offered to replace it and I accepted. When the second steak came, it was less burnt but still tasted disgusting. I didn't want to make a fuss again but I let my girlfriend have a taste and she agreed that it tasted gross. I'm not sure what was going on with the steak that night because we've never had a problem like this before. I felt bad telling the manager that this steak was bad too when she came by again to ask us how the food was. She said that we wouldn't be charged for this and said I could get something else. I chose the 8 oz striploin, and I couldn't believe it but it also wasn't very appetizing. At this point we really didn't want to make any more of a fuss, so I accepted the meal begrudgingly.

I would like to note that the staff were very nice, and attentive to my needs. However, at the end of the day, we had to pay for the 8 oz steak, which we did not fight. Based on what the manager said, it sounded as if my meal wouldn't be charged at all, due to all the issues.

This experience has made us re-think our future dinner choices for other special occasions.

It was a birthday dinner and was great from all angles. We both enjoyed every course and the birthday cake compliments of the Keg with a candle topped it off.
The culinary experience was enhanced further by the excellent server we had. Thank you to The Keg Esplanade.

I made reservations for an accessible table as my friend is in a wheelchair. When we first arrived the accessible door was not working from the outside. The manager fixed and assured it was working by the time we were seated. Though the hostess recognized we were celebrating a birthday, the server was not told this so we didn't get the complimentary birthday cake - unless this is no longer offered? We were not offered the birthday cake nor was the birthday celebration recognized by the server. I was a little disappointed by this but the birthday boy didn't mind so we did not make a fuss over it.

If you want an amazing steak, The Keg is your reliable go-to. I have a gluten and dairy intolerance and every effort was made to prepare my food safely for me. It was delicious! My only comment is that there are no desserts on the menu that I can have, not even if modified. Also, no non-dairy "milk" for my coffee. Would have been nice to have a fruit salad or a sorbet at the end of the meal. But that's more a comment for The Keg in general, not specifically this location.

I wish I could remember out servers name. She was fantastic. We told her it was our anniversary and she brought us the biggest piece of cake I had ever seen after we had finished our dinners. It was delicious. It's simple touches like these that really make you want to return to a place. The other things we are were also cooked wonderfully (Escargot, baked brie, the Steak Oscar and the prime rib). Will definitely return when we're in the area.

We have eaten at numerous Kegs but this Keg got our filet mignons cooked perfectly. Melted in our mouths. They also provided us with a complimentary piece of Billy Miner pie for a birthday celebration when we didn't request it. Great night.

Service was great. Food was very good, but has been better on previous visits. Noise level was very high – made the evening less appealing than it could have been.
