Busy, but for a good reason

Four of us arrived at the Keg on a Saturday evening at 6 pm and fortunately we were seated within 20 minutes. During the wait, very attentive greeting staff offered us drinks as well as complimentary appetizers. A nice touch. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious.

Been here a few times. The food is great......but if you book over the phone for a large party you have to speak to 3 people to book as it seems only the manager can do this. Each time you have to explain what you want. You get the same the hostesses....they can't do anything without the manager who is... More

We have visited several "Kegs" in Toronto, London and elsewhere and have now added Ottawa to that list (Byward Market location). As expected, the steak (me) and roast beef (my wife) was excellent. Service was prompt, and our server was very knowledgable about the menu and the wine list. We can highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a... More

Finally managed to get here on my last night in Ottawa having heard how good it was from several locals. We turned up without a reservation but managed to get a table outside, the place was busy I would recommend reservations if you can. I had the 14oz prime rib, it was gorgeous, so tasty especially the outer part which... More

Our friends took us out to dinner here. Although we live relatively nearby we had never visited before because other friends had been disappointed. This was not our experience. We arrived a little before 7:00 pm on a warm Wednesday evening. The patio area was full but we were accommodated immediately in one of the inside areas. The interior is... More

The Keg restaurant, Hunt Club Road, Ottawa pays attention to details, has five star food and service and when you leave you feel that it has been a great evening. The steak is always good and done to your specifications and the chicken is as it should be. Although a person doesn't usually go to a restaurant for the salad,... More

Went to the Market Keg twice in the last month. The food was divine and the service was outstanding. We normally don't like to go to the Market, simply because of the parking situation, but since we've decided to stop looking around and just go straight to a parking garage, it is much more enjoyable. I had the brie as... More

Great quality meat with a range of cuts. We all had different steaks and all agreed they were tasty and well cooked. The service was attentive but not overpowering. The setting was a little confusing as we couldn't workout what style it was trying to be with some industrial vent pipes and chimney matched with wood panelling and smoked glass.... More

The staff are very well trained and my lobster and shrimp salad was good, but certainly not rave material. It is very noisy and not suitable for a quiet dinner trying something like fusion cooking. Ottawa has so many exciting restaurants, this is a good restaurant if you want to be sure of the menu. I would prefer to try... More
