We went for our anniversary dinner and it was perfect. The atmosphere was comfortable and romantic, the food was outstanding, the service was excellent. After dinner we held hands and went for a walk at dusk in their beautiful Victorian gardens. Overall the evening was great! We will go back for special events in the future.

This is a beautiful old house surrounded by a lovely garden. Great atmosphere for fine dining. Our friend was celebrating her 75th birthday and I believe she got her delicious dessert for free! Service is uniformly excellent each time we have visited, food very well presented and tasty. A favourite for any special occasion.

As a birthday celebration my fiance and I went to the Keg manor. This is our favorite place to go to celebrate and when we go we like to take our time. Our server was attentive and did not push us to order our main. We took our time with the appetizer and wine and then ordered our main courses. We were in and out within an hour and a half and felt well fed and well looked after. Our main courses were both steak with the garlic mashed. Awesome steaks, so tasty. The garlic mashed are yummy! For dessert we shared their special chocolate pie, it may be called billy miner pie(i'm not sure). I was just a little disappointed with this one item. We had enjoyed this dessert prior to this evening and they had served a nice helping and it was delicious. This time, the serving size was quite small. I'm not sure if management has told them to cut down on serving size, but I would have really liked a slightly larger piece. Other than that, dinner was great and I totally recommend this restaurant for those who enjoy an adult dinner out with good service and a great atmosphere.

We don't go to the Keg for ordinary dinners. Going is a treat for us (maybe 2x's per year).

We were staying in Westboro for the weekend and decided to go to The Keg. It was close by and the only Keg restaurant in Ottawa that takes reservations on Saturday. Our last visit to the Keg near the airport was in excess of an hour wait.

When we booked, we were asked if there were any mobility limitations. This is the first time asked. We acknowledged that someone In our foursome had a leg cast, but was able to walk up a few steps. This was a great question, as there was multi level seating. We were seated in a room, to the top of the three steps. The atmosphere was quite nice. Servers acknowledged us right away. Salads arrived promptly, as did our meals (not rushed). All arrived as ordered.

We liked that the rooms only held 10 tables or so. Someone in our foursome also has hearing issues in large rooms where a lot of people are talking. There were no hearing issues experienced.

We will go to that location again for the atmosphere, quick (but not rushed) service, great food and the part where you can make a reservation. No needless waiting.

This use to be our favourite place to celebrate our anniversary (our 49th this year) but... The food was very good as usual, the service was friendly and professional, the atmosphere is superb but we were a little disappointed that it no longer has the class it once had. Where did the tablecloths go? There is nothing nicer than a finely appointed table. I was astonished to see the female servers dress in what we would consider for a lower class establishment, similar to a sports bar. There are other dinning establishments in Ottawa that now are just a notch above the Keg within the same price range.
