Historic place with Great foodWe had a nice meal and good service. Great steak and Mutton. Overall, a good time.
Tables are very close to each other which did not provide for romantic conversation. However, we met the people on each side and had a great time with them.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceFood was excellent and service was second to none, highly recommend.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect steakBest steak I had during my visit to NY (prime rib)5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMore than I expected.

- KEL5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMbest T-bone steak i've hadMy steak was as close to the medium-rare holy grail as I've had.
The side dishes were fine.
The espresso pana cotta was quite good.
Our waiter was very helpful.
Keens is a standard.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA memorable Mother's dayI was given a red tulip as well as a free drink in honor of Mother's day. The service, food and ambiance have remained consistantly excellent for the 20 years I have been going there.It's the place to be for a special occaision or just dinner before going to MSG.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice food and great serviceHad a very juicy chicken and the best fries, I've had for a long, long time. Very friendly service and interesting decor.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Dining Big PortionsNice Dining Big Portions. Great service and good food. Be careful how you ask for meat to be prepared. Asked for medium well and it cam out more well. Observed another person at another table experience the same thing only she asked for medium but got medium well. Food was still good so I did not send back like other party did. I don't care to waste food like that.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to steakhouses acrossI've been to steakhouses across the country and keen is the best by far, food and service great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHonestyMy wife forgot her camera on the table .

Alfred5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDynamite PorterhouseMy wife and I split the porterhouse for two and it was great, sides wets terrific. Highly recommend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent LunchChateaubriand was excellent, but the surprise of the meal was the Prime Rib Hash. It's only on the bar menu, but we had it as an appetizer and it was amazing. Service (by S.M.) was excellent again. Would definitely return again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks and pleasant staffKeens was an exceptional place to celebrate our anniversary. We were pleased from the moment we walked in the door with the ambiance and professionalism of the staff. The bar had a nice selection of drinks to cater to any taste while the restaurant prepared an amazing steak to satisfy even the most pretentious critic5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Nostalgic DecorThe thing that makes this restaurant great is the decor. You can tell that there is a lot of history in the place. From that perspective, it's worth a trip just for that.
As far as the food goes, the steaks were wonderful. The sides were only ok. I have had better sides at other steakhouses. Given the price, I would be more likely to try another steakhouse before returning to Keens.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a celebrationFood was delicious and outstanding service. We were never rushed. Waitstaff was professional and caring. Even the vegetarian joining us at the steakhouse found something to eat. In the party of ten, we tried the oysters, bacon, mutton, rib eye, filet mignon, porterhouse and sea bass. All cooked to order....I really like the mushroom side. Only complaint was the serving sizes were so large.
This is a do again....good food, great service, and able to accommodate a large party. We were seated upstairs in the pipe room. If seated there, look up to see the hundreds of pipe (smoking pipes, not plumbing pipes).5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLunchGreat place for business lunch because the servive is fast.
Nice place for out of towners who visit the city5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDining at Keen's Steak House in MayWe had a great time. You provided a large round table for our party of 8. We were all comfortable. The service was very good. The steaks were cooked accordingly and delicious, but the side dishes were lack-luster. The lobster bisque had nice pieces of lobster, but the soup itself was substandard. The various vegetable side-dishes were also not wonderful. One in particular, soggy cauliflower and broccoli, seemed to have been in a steam tray for 12 hours prior to reaching our table. Thank you still for the great environment and the beef, but at your prices, the side dishes should really be much much better.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem within Herald Square.Great steaks and atmosphere. Deceptively big restaurant but still feels like a steakhouse should. We were a group of 6 and I felt like it was the perfect number of people. We got the mutton chop and porterhouse for 3 and had more than enough food for 6 guys with sides of course. The mutton has a distinctive flavor and while i don't think i could fully enjoy an entire mutton chop being able to share it was great.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SteakhouseEverything here is top notch. My favorite piece of beef is still the prime rib (King cut). Cooked to perfection with plenty of flavor. Shared a few pieces of the Porterhouse which is also excellent. Sides were excellent and the chocolate mousse was delicious.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding historic restaurant!Outstanding historic restaurant! One of my favorite dining establishments in NYC! The "mutton chop" was fantastic.......5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIf in New York....Keen's Steakhouse is a must on your itinerary. Our table ordered the mutton, sirloin and dover sole. Each was excellently prepared and the portions were generous. The meats were particularly tender and the sole melted in my mouth. There is a excellent wine list and the service exceeds expectations. We'll definitely return!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatIt was the best and by all meens largest Steak i have ever eaten.

Service far exceeded expectations.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNew York City time capsuleKeens is the kind of place that comes to mind when you think of "classic New York." The food is exceptional—to be expected considering the price tag—but the atmosphere is really what brings it home.
The walls are just oozing with history and it represents the perfect combination of old and new. Ask for the whisky list and you'll receive a book full of some of the finest scotch on the planet.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMeataholic gives 5 thumbs up!As a meataholic I booked my table before even coming to NYC from sweden. My expectations where through the roof but couldn't compare to the delicious experience keens steakhouse offered. Service was topnotch and the meat melted in my mouth. Only negative to say was that my stomach was to small to fit more than it did. Marvelous!!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding tradiional NYCOutstanding tradiional NYC steakhouse with great service and food. LOved the food and loved the atmosphere.

Just wished they offered the rib eye ON the bone..it's my favorite cut! Highly recommend the sauteed mushrooms and creamed spinach for the sides. The carrot ginger soup was a special but it should be added to the menu permanently. It was phenomenal!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMKeen s RestauranrBest steak ever!

We met very old friends and were allowed to spend a 3-1/2 hour lunch. It was very good. Beautiful old bar also.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe porterhouse steak forThe porterhouse steak for 2 was to die for! And certainly no question that it wasn big enough - we were unable to finish and coming from Australia were steak is very much part of our heritage that is saying something. Great to see Affagatto on the choices for coffee.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere of a traditionalThe atmosphere of a traditional steak house, kind of old-fashioned way. For those who love it :) Steaks were fine, but t-bone was a bit hard, and ribeye was a bit too fatty. The general experience was good, but frankly speaking we expected more. The service was great.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food and service. waitergreat food and service. waiter took time to talk to us and gave us history of the restaurant4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experience!Fantastic place, took my partner there for his 40 th, visiting from Australia and Argentina. He is a huge steak fan and we were so happy with our food, service, everything, just great! The waiters were a little quirky which we liked as we found some very boring ones in NY ( and terrible food)and the food was just exceptional, I would visit anytime i am in NY again. The place has a great history too, a lovely find! Go check it out!! The price was good too, what we would pay for a decent place in Australia but Keen's offered so much more :)4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak I ever had!My wife and I shared the porterhouse for 2.

The food, service, and surroundings are exceptional and this visit was no exception. We will certainly be back.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best steak I have ever eaten...Excellent food. Little cramped on the ground floor but had three floors of seating, and possibly pricing. Would recommend purely for the Porterhouse steak for two. Try not to fill up on the side dishes, the best steak I have ever had, the serving board kept the temperature of the steak to the very end.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMit's the BEST choise in NEWit's the BEST choise in NEW YORK!!!
