visited mid week, and still told 20-25 minute wait. However there was room at the bar, so were served immediately. Steaks great as usual, in fact never had anything from the menu that wasn't good. It's a chain, so don't expect high end , but as chains go the Keg is up there with the best.

A consistently good experience and you get what you expect. Service is friendly and prompt. The location is excellent for after work get togethers. My favourite area is the outdoor patio. No surprises - a solid place for food and drinks.

This is the Keg. You can find a location everywhere. This location was close to a hotel where I was staying so made it easy. The food is always good and the service was fantastic. We were greeted and seated quickly. Our server went out of her way to make sure we were looked after. The food was typical Keg... More

It was a last minute idea to head out for our date night! We decided to go to The Keg on the Market and it turned out to be a very nice evening. Our waitress "Audrey" was very pleasant and had a great personality. Our food was very tasty - overall experience was amazing! Will definitely go back!

My wife and I dined here on our first night of a glorious week in Toronto to experience The World Cup of Hockey. Rebecca served us well and was appropriately attentive to all of our needs. Though a chain, The Keg is very classy and does not feel like a chain. The atmosphere is subdued and can be romantic depending... More

Not over-the-top fancy yet classy and real, always reasonably busy, my favourite go-to place downtown Toronto, whether it's for a drink, an appy, a full lunch, a full dinner or meeting a bunch of friends or colleagues! Great food, drinks, atmosphere and even better service! Beautiful friendly top-notch staff all the way around! Period! Cheers! Sante! Salute!

This place can be loud, but if you get into one of the round tables in the little roomlets all the noise goes away. Perfect for a business meeting. Food and service were excellent.

The Keg makes a great steak (I'd be as happy or more so with their baseball sirloin as I would with a nice steak at Mortons and Ruths), has nice decor, good service and is relatively reasonably priced (far from inexpensive but not outlandish). This location is great before a Raptors of Leafs game, but you need to make reservations... More

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.
