Rough start, great finish

We had a large group and tried numerous times to make reservations. The representative told us that they couldn't take reservations for 12 to which we said could you take two groups of 6. Again, we were not accommodated. Six of us went anyway and were seated in 10 minutes. We explained the... read more

The service was beyond excellent. I can't remember the last time I received such good service. The food, was fabulous too. Everyone in my group loved the dishes they were served. There was not one thing to complain about.

We had high hopes after reading some of the reviews on TA - but our experience fell way short of others. To be fair to the restaurant, it was a Saturday night and we turned up without a reservation, and were given roughly the same wait time for an inside or outside table, 20-25 minutes. We decided to go for... More

The Keg always comes through! My wife and I met a friend while we were visiting Ottawa for a couple of days in June. This Keg was in the neighborhood of our hotel, the Byward Market. The dinner was great and the service was very personable, from the appetizers to the main courses and the deserts. The restaurant is in... More

My husband and I are visiting Ottawa and I had a gift certificate for the keg from Christmas so we went to the keg in Ottawa. We ate outside. Dinner was very good. We had steak and lobster tail. The steak was very tender and grilled to perfection. We had a salad and it was fresh. The waiter was great.... More

Excellent dinner - 2 couples and a 5 y.o. Service was very good. All the food was delicious and exactly as expected and ordered. Except for the surprise fruit and veggie "appetizer" for my daughter which was an amazing treat. Thank-you Keg! You never disappoint!

The Keg is our favorite place to eat out at. We were staying at the Courtyard Marriott and when we looked out the window, we saw the Keg. This location is like most locations, the 6:30-8:30 crowd is the busiest time for them. They have an outdoor area to order drinks or have your meal served this way you can... More

Table of four. Two couples. Two ordered 10 ounce filet with 19$ side of Alskan King Crab. Both thought filets over salted and had ordered them without being wrapped in bacon, but still bacon flavoured. Third ordered prime rib, again, over salted. Fourth was in heaven with 2 lb lobster dinner. Cooked to perfection, and to a Maritimer, an exquisite... More

We went to the keg on a weekday and it wasn't too busy. I wish they had put us in a booth instead of between everyone else. I understand they do this because it is easier for the server but it is not intimate at all. We still had a good time because the food was excellent.

usually my review of all the different Keg restaurants I've visited is excellent, but this one was just OK, nothing really wrong just OK. The meal was OK, the service OK
