Excellent all the time

Keg is just downright right all the time. Great staff that care, excellent food menu with nice selection of steaks. Nice drinks that taste right and consistent. Always a favourite.

After enjoying some cocktails on the patio, we were seated indoors for our dinner. Service felt rushed and the waiter had to been asked for water. When dinner was finally served, the steak was tough and had grizzle throughout. Once this was pointed out, the waiter advised that he would have the manager come speak to us. After a long... More

Ate at The Keg on York St, Toronto for Valentine's Day. The food was good as always and the service was great. It was Valentine's Day so very busy, wish the tables weren't so closer together, wasn't very private.

The Keg is a chain restaurant with a come as you are mentality, beers and appetizers after the game or an elegant anniversary with steak and lobster are done well here. The steaks are very good but not great! the wine list is average and the atmosphere is trendy and a little upscale. I like the Keg but with that... More

Ate here 3 times on a business trip and as a solo diner I appreciated the bar seating option which included a raised area set back from the main bar a little bit. Although the restaurant was busy it never seemed too packed unlike some other restaurants I visited in the financial district. Food was excellent each time I visited... More

This is one of my favourite places to dine out. It is affordable, and you always leave feeling you've had a great meal. It is not stuffy and pretentious, and you get great value for your dollar. The old 1868 Gothic style manor (originally Euclid Hall) is a bit spooky and totally fun; ask your server about the ghosts! The... More

Went to Toronto on business and stopped here on the way to the airport for a quick lunch. The decor and ambiance was a little dark but felt very classy and high end. The food was very good and the service was good as well. Nothing spectacular about the meal I had but it was simple and very well done.... More

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner with two friends. Is so much different than your average Keg's, the atmosphere is amazing, have been here before and loved it. The food was amazing, cooked perfectly. Out waitress, was ok. Was a little slow tending to us, and when she was there she seemed like she really wasn't paying... More

Very nice and reasonable wine selection as well as a fair whisky selection. The steaks were good and i enjoyed the peppered new york strip. It was very tender. The service from Sophia was discreet but attentive, a great combination. All of us enjoyed the steaks we had.
