味、雰囲気、接客どれもが最高に感じました。
日本にも最近オープンしているNYのステーキハウスはありますが、こちらは日本には無いので、是非オススメしたいです。

Really great meal in a really cozy and interesting setting. Low noise level was great for conversation. Service was outstanding and unobtrusive. Our group will definitely be back. Beef and arctic char were delicious. Can't wait to try the lamb next time. All of our sides, the crudites starter, rolls, desserts were all top notch. A much more comfortable alternative to Luger with a broader menu. Highly recommend!

Keens was recommended to us, and as we were in NY for my birthday we decided to book a table. We were not disappointed!
The staff could not have been more helpful, and the meals we all had were to die for. I have never had a steak melt in my mouth before, like the one I had at Keens. The desserts were just as good too.
We all agreed that Keens was the best steakhouse we had been to. Very highly recommended!

Great Experience - I have always felt that all steak houses are the same - Morton's, Capital Grille, Ruth's Chris, Smith & Wollensky, Del Frisco's, etc. The moment you walk into Keen's you will realize that this is untrue - Comfortable cozy ambiance, exceptional service, and of course outstanding steak - Keen's is definitely a notch above the others !!

Keens is a pretty typical steakhouse although it’s history and ambiance puts it above the norm. The prime rib king cut is too obnoxiously big although very good. Service was typical nyc unfriendly but our guy was extra creepy. There are better places for sure.

Keenest never fails to deliver a simply stellar experience. The service, the food, the atmosphere, all are just exceptional. It is far from inexpensive, but each time we go we say it is worth every penny. Nothing compares to Keenes.

Keen's had been on the bucket list for a long time and didn't disappoint. Food was spectacular throughout, service was unobtrusive was excellent. Went to catch up with an old friend and it exceeded my expectations. A classic spot that earns its reputation.

Meines Erachtens eines der besten Steakhouses von NY, mit einer langen Tradition.
Gediegenes Ambiente, fantastische Steaks, mindestens 500gr. schwer,
also nichts für den kleinen Hunger.
Sehr aufmerksamer, aber auch zurückhaltender Service, welchen man in Ny nicht immer findet, sehr angenehm.
Nicht preiswert, aber jeden Dollar wert.
Beim nächsten Mal NY sicherlich wieder.

Very overrated steakhouse. The food and service is far better in other steakhouses in NYC. Plus this is on the high end for pricing as well.

Traveling frequently to New York, our first night is always at one of the many great steakhouses in the city. This was our first time at Keens, having made a reservation 6 weeks prior.

We were greeted at the reception stand and seated within a few minutes. Our waiter did his job just fine, but that was evident; it was a job to him. Zero personality. I'll chalk that up to one waiter out of many in the establishment, but it was clear he simply went through the motions. (He's the guy who resembles a young Gene Shalit!)

My wedge salad was amazing, perhaps the best I have ever had (2 wedges, beautifully prepared with amazing dressing and thick cut bacon.)

My wife enjoyed very much her 8oz filet. No complaints.

I ordered the T-bone, which was cooked to a perfect medium, as I ordered it. It was huge...24ozs. However, it was an extremely average cut of meat with an inordinate amount of fat in it. And, it was barely seasoned which rendered it quite flavorless. For $59.

The vegetable sides we ordered has clearly been sitting for a length of time as they were incredibly unwhelming.

For a total bill of nearly $300, we expected much more. Among all of the steakhouses we've been to...and we've been to many...Gallagher's is the go-to place for a consistently great meal, great wait staff and classic atmosphere.

My wife and I met a college buddy of mine for dinner on Friday. We were seated in the second floor dining room, underneath the huge painting of the tiger.

As always, the service was terrific. At Keens, the entire wait staff works as a team to ensure that guests never want for anything for very long.

As usual, I ordered s mutton chop cooked medium rare. It was perfect; tasty, delicious, tender and juicy.

Keens is my favorite steakhouse and the mutton chop is my favorite hunk of meat. Do yourself a favor and go.

Great for that 'I need red meat' attack. The 16oz Porterhouse for two was superb - perfectly medium- rare and just the right amount of fat and a huge bone to take home. The 8oz filet mignon was equally superb, lean and perfectly medium-rare. The key lime pie was a generous size, perfect size for 3 forks.
The waiter was knowledgeable about wines and cocktails as well as the food. He offered wine samples and made recommendations which were spot on. We were in for a late lunch and enjoyed a leisurely time, no-one rushed us to leave.
Great food, lovely wines and excellent service - a perfect lunch experience.

Food was great. Best prime rib I ever tasted but servings were huge. I would have liked to taste some sides and appetizers but there was no room left. Luckily someone told us about the portions. We probably could have split something. Cool place inside. Service was excellent.
