There were six of us for dinner. One local and five out-of-towners. We checked out a couple of the other places and Tony, the local, recommended this one even though the entrees were a bit more expensive because it had a better wine list. Five people had the small filet though cooked to different degrees - from bleu to well... More

In England you would dress up to go here, in Canada you'll find it is what ever suits your style. Some of the best chicken nachos we've ever had, the baseball steak was scrumptious as were the chicken and ribs. we had a really attentive waiter, and yummy food. Worth every penny.

From the moment we walked in the door everything was perfect. The hostess staff were super friendly and greeted us promptly. We were given a very nice table for 2 in the dining room and didn't even have to wait! Our waitress was great we had our drinks and some nice hot bread at our table quickly. Our entrees were... More

This is a delightful restaurant where the entire waitstaff seems genuinely glad you are there and is eager to offer great service. My husband and I sat next to one of the fire places with our backs to the world and it was a delight. Our salads were excellent although the wedge had too much dressing, albeit delicious. I had...

We came to this restaurant for an early dinner on a Sunday evening, from 5 pm till 7 pm and parked in the garage downstairs. I knew that the restaurant doesn't validate parking, but was ready to pay the usual $8 for the parking. Unfortunately we didn't notice that they charge $8 for parking before 6 pm, and $8 after...

For most people, this is definitely a 'special occasion' restaurant and it is well worth visiting on such an occasion. The steak was incredible and the garlic mash is to die for. On top of all that, the service is probably the best I have ever had in a restaurant. The waitress was perfect and gave me complimentary table bread... More

We decided to try The Keg Steakhouse on York while on vacation in Toronto, and were glad we did. We had eaten at The Keg Mansion (also Toronto) on an earlier visit to the city, and wanted to give the York Street location a try. (They were equidistant from our hotel) We were pleasantly surprised by the "upscale" ambience of... More

I've been to a bunch of different keg locations and always had great steak. This was first time at this location. The steak was one of the best I've ever had. It was cooked to perfection and tasted incredible. The service was great as it always is. I would suggest this place for any steak lover visiting or living in... More

The food was awesome. They don't sacrifice quality. Stay open very late. The atmosphere was very elegant and romantic. Prices may be a little much for those on a budget.
