For a business lunch or traditional steak lunch or dinner the Key is truly the best option on the Esplanade. The atmosphere is cheerful and slightly upscale. The service impeccable and the Keg consistency in service and food quality expectations shine through.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

It's always best to call and communicate that you're running late for a reservation. Otherwise, we cannot guarantee that we'll be able to hold your table.
