I've been to many Kegs, including the Mansion Keg, but this one, not for several years. The interior is exquisite, and the exterior lets you feel as if you're dining in a first-class establishment. The menu is the same at all Kegs but the food prep is not. I always get a double Bloody Caesar--the Keg is known for their yummy BCs--but this one tasted too boozy and I didn't finish my drink (which never happens). My friend and I both had the sirloin 8 oz. Mine was tough and when the waiter asked how it was, I told him. He offered to bring another, but I said no. Then the manager came and insisted on bringing another and did, saying "I want you to love it!" I ended up with two 2 steaks, 2 baked potatoes, 2 servings of veg, and couldn't eat all that, of course, so I took the rest in a doggie bag and gave it to a street person. The second steak was not tough. Both steaks, though, were marinated to the point where the marinade was too evident. The salad was good, the bread good, veg and potato good, the creme brulee dessert good. But the steaks were not the quality I'm used to, neither of them, and this resto is wonderful for the superior decor but if you value taste, the Keg downtown is far better, and that goes for the drinks as well. I can't fault the staff with anything--both the waiter and manager were very nice, and the hostess too. But I came for the steak and it was a letdown. My friend said his steak was fine but he's not a steak-eater to begin with so he wouldn't be able to judge properly. I think the sheer volume in this resto is what makes for a weaker main.
