Went here for a business dinner and was treated to a terrific steak with great attentive service. Ambiance is trendy and bar scene was active. Very reasonable price for top quality steakhouse. Great value. A just when in Toronto.

My first time at this place, not my first time in Toronto however, and I truly enjoyed every bite of each part of this meal, from the appetizer all the way through the dessert. The prices were high, but as we are in Toronto, it was to be expected, and the serving sizes did not disappoint in that regard, so... More

Went for lunch with 9 colleagues. Menu is very diverse, with a lot of meat dishes which satisfied my fellow diners. 2 of us are vegetarians; my friend had salad and soup, and I had lobster mac and cheese that was to die for. Others had steaks and burgers reportedly very good. Lots of leather high backed seating, very nice,... More

This keg seems to be a well kept secret. Not as cozy or friendly as the York street location. The food and service is excellent. The bar area is awkwardly designed and the tvs are in odd locations. I like it but it's not a destination spot for dining. The esplanade area is fantastic. For such a great area this... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday here with the kids; their first time to the Keg. We got there early on a Saturday and received a warm welcome and cozy booth to sit in. Our server was prompt, friendly and very accommodating with the kids. We started with drinks and appetizers (calamari and shrimp) and both were delicious as expected. Everyone... More

One of the most recent surprises. The ambiance, the reception, the service, it is one of the greatest experience of a steak house. The food presentation and the quality served, left a taste of wants more, or instigated a short visited. The variety of dishes and how they are prepared did not leve any room for second thought. I do... More

Looking at review by Stephen.... What a shame! Why would you go to a Steak House and look for something else to order. The Keg has the Best Steaks for the price of the Steak House Restaurants. I highly recommend them, I found service friendly and helpful, made suggestions as to which steaks would be the best choice for our... More

I appreciate the extra care a restaurant takes when they know I have food allergies. When I mentioned to the server that I'm Gluten Free, the manager came by and assured that what I ordered was fine. She then brought my food to the table - with the server to re-assure me once again that it was safe! That meant... More
