Great food and service, albeit expensive. Like everything in Toronto. They have areas where it isn't too noisy. Good for a dinner that includes a conversation.

A very busy and crowded downtown steakhouse, one of a number of them in Toronto. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is average. The $40 special steak - t bone with filet was tough and not tasty. The filet with lobster was good. It varies. Large plates. Salads are good. It is noisy, but not unlike most large... More

Consistently good service, with great quality food and an expansive wine list. This Keg is very cozy. You can have a nice corner, a place in the bar area or a well located table.

Hotel clerk recommended for steaks and the filet mignon - got there after 8 and had a table right by the fireplace - attentive spot on service - the steaks did not disappoint and the bottle of cabernet was a very nice touch for this evening - we also shared a salad and were steered toward a better pricing choice...

Six of us visited this keg as a late night meal, skipped appetisers and straight to the steak. Wine by the glass tried the Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon neither were memorable. The steak went for the 10oz fillet mignon, medium rare, average piece of meat overly charred. Overall had worse but also considerably better.

Our hotel concierge recommended The Keg. Great atmosphere. Our waiter (Aaron) was attentive and always showed up when we needed a refill. The food was awesome. Baked Brie, stuffed mushrooms and my bleu cheese topped fillet was the best steak I've had in a long time.

The Keg is the ultimate "Go to" place for amazing steak and mouth-watering Prime Rib! One word of caution though, the horse radish will clear your sinuses and make your eyes water! Still, it is soooo good!!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
