Went for an evening with colleagues. My recommendation based upon Keg in Banff. Pleasantly surprised with vibe. Good service from Nicole. Great steaks. Decent value. Would recommend.

It's easy to see the reason for the enduring popularity of the Keg: consistent quality. I used to work over this location and so was there many times in the past few years. The food is good and the service is usually prompt as well. The steaks are very good but the hamburger is just above average, which is a... More

Went here on our last evening in Toronto and the play was buzzing. It's very busy Thursday-Sunday but you can have a seat or stand at the bar while waiting for a table. Staff were friendly and the food was fantastic. The steak was cooked exactly how I asked great place I highly recommend it.

We were at the boat show last year and a pile of us went for Dinner. We went to the Keg. Being from Windsor I am not impressed by the Keg.

Went on a work night out. For a place which is known for being a steak restaurant, the steak really isn't that good. Sides were basic and on the small side. It feels expensive versus the quality of the food.

The staff were great from the door to the table. Helpful, friendly and kind. The server's timing was spot on. Never too much attention and never too far out of sight. The Prime rib was stunning. It was pricey and worth it. The feel of the place was trendy but not elitist. Very comfortable restaurant experience.

Would really recommend the ribs they were amazing. Not a dressy restaurant and casual clothes are fine but a little more than casual seemed to be the norm. Good chill vibe and some beers went really well after walking through -15 outside

As the Keg goes it was consistent. My steak was cooked to my request and the veggies were just ok. The service was fine and value is always good

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
