We had dinner on a Friday evening. The lounge area was quite noisy but we were seated in a quieter area. Liked the extensive choices of steaks, sides and apps. My Bloody Mary could have been spicier but I did not ask ahead. I had the filet and Cajun shrimp...lovely combo and well prepared. The bread was really good, too... More

We went there two consecutive nights and experienced consistent quality. The Boxer Shiraz is outstanding. The steaks were perfect and the starters super fresh and delicious. Just great!

The Keg is always great. On a cold day a bowl of their French onion soup with a glass of wine really hits the spot.

Frankly, we were planning to go to the Old Spaghetti Factory next door, but they were closed on Christmas Eve. Lucky for us! The Keg was so much better! We all loved our meals.

We really enjoyed dinner at the Keg. Our third visit here in the past year. The bar, restaurant and the food are #1. Will be back.

met a few long time friends for a night out. The dinner was great, the servers and bar staff were professional and very friendly. it always impresses me how the wait staff is so prepared, so knowledgeable. The kitchen staff, chef et el really deserve credit for everything coming out so hot and timely.

Great venue---horrible service--soooooooooooooo noisy---not worth the time or effort to get there. So loud it was difficult to talk to one another. The servers kept doing disappearing acts. Simply not an enjoyable experience.

Love the Keg! I always get my steaks "Chicago" style, which is kind of a little burnt on the outside and medium rare on the inside. It just tastes amazing! The quality of the meat is always top notch, steaks are always cooked to perfection, the Prime rib is outstanding and the Service well educated and every time super friendly.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
