It seems that we always end up at the Keg for our family Birthday celebrations. We all love the food and the quality is always the same, excellent. At this particular location there is a round booth with a fur wall, we always request this booth. It can comfortably sit 5 people and 7 people if you pull up 2... More

Lovely place to hold your celebration or special events. We like the location as it is within walking distance from the subway, Union station Go train. It gives you a real buzz as it is the place to be. Not everything rates to excellence or perfection. The certainly hold their reputation. We enjoy quality and value when it comes to... More

Great spot for a business lunch, make your reservation well in advance, it may be full it usually is. The atmosphere is electric, bay street crowd. Unfortunately the menu is the same old Keg Franchise menu and the wine list is not inspired

We were in Toronto last week for a convention, and ate at The Keg 2 times. There were 6 of us from OK and Texas. The first night our server was Kurt, oh what a help he was, helping us choose the right meals. The second visit we were served by Chris, who again helped with any meal questions we... More

The Keg is a favourite of ours when we are in the city. We do not have a Keg very close to us. There service was excellent, the food delicious.

This location is absolutely great! We were there for my boyfriend's birthday and the service was perfect! Anna was our server. We have had these meals at other locations but for some reason the meals here just tasted much better! We loved the atmosphere as well! The only downside was that the side veggies we ordered were dry.

So. The Keg is a chain, but for a chain, it has elevated itself above your typical chain :) The Esplanade location is slick and the staff are wonderful, and spot on service, from the hostesses that greet you at the door, to the servers, to the manager, who we noticed hovering and participating. We eat out a lot, and... More

Although I've eaten at The Keg on York a couple of times on previous trips to Toronto, my September visit was a bit of a let down. On the plus side I was able to get a table straight away but I found the steak very dry and lacking flavour. Service was not very attentive and I got the impression... More

My wife and I visited the Keg Steakhouse when we were in Toronto on vacation. We went on a weeknight and it was nice and busy, a sure sign of a great establishment! From the moment we arrived, the team really looked after us with the service being very attentive. I would certainly take the advice from the staff, particularly... More

The lounge here provides a great experience. As always, service and food is of usual Keg quality. You can always count on the same great service and quality food at the Keg.
