Our family celebrates many milestones at this Keg location and the room, service and food seem a bit better than other locations we've been to (Newmarket, Upper James, Waterdown, The Mansion, Richmond BC). The food is completely consistent and the servers always go over and above. One of our party recently developed a severe wheat and/or gluten intolerance and the... More

The ambiance and food are excellent. I would definitely go back, there's a lot of choices on the food and drinks menu. Indoor and outdoor seating available, the terrace outside the back of the restaurant is very peaceful and I enjoyed my meal out there.

We spent our last night in Toronto dinning at here. We had a wonderful evening with great food and wine and we must say that the service was top notch. Only draw back was the construction work going on in the underground parking directly beneath the restaurent. But our waiter made sure that we got a table outside where there... More

We went to the KEG for our office Christmas lunch and it was great! We were all happy with our food and the desserts were nice too. It's a bit on the pricy side though.

I was expecting a diner experience, so arrived without a reservation. To my delight, the restaurant offered more of a fine dining experience and was beautifully lit, making the ambience just perfect. The restaurant was not very full, so we were taken to our table immediately. I had the Manhattan Steak and it was cooked to perfection, my partner had... More

The Keg always lives up to its reliable reputation for serving good comfort food. Great steaks and prime rib are top of the list. This place really lives up to that and provides a lively atmosphere for the diners. The huge space means little waiting when arriving at the door and the staff are really friendly. Overall, would recommend anytime.

Got a table Thursday night after a 5 minute wait with complimentary refreshment in the lobby. Atmosphere is great, lots of private alcoves to enjoy a meal out with friends. We were a party of seven and revived great service. Each course arrived all at once and the streak quality is quite good. Had somewhat tasteless and tough veggies as... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
