Wonderful steak, wonderful service. Lovely ambiance.
My first dinner “downstairs” at Keens. The experience downstairs at a cramped table for two is simply awful. The noise of rowdy tables of 6 next to quiet tables for two with a low ceiling. It’s like a mosh pit when the waiters/staff need to reach tables they simply cannot reach. Our ambivalent and exhausted waiter was, well sad. I’ve eaten upstairs and used to think Keens was a must visit location. Now I’d demand a table upstairs or I’ll go to McDonald’s.
Fantastic. Very welcoming. Food was outstanding. My 15 year old son and I were there while visiting Manhattan, and it was a great place for father-son dinner. The food, service, history, and atmosphere were exactly what I expected and hoped for. Thanks! We’ll be back.
I have visited Keens for dinner and lunch many times but last Friday may have been the best meal yet. The food and service was outstanding and left a very memorable impression with our guests. Keep up the good work!
For weeks, I had read and heard about how great this restaurant was. Specifically, the mutton chops came highly recommended. So, when my family and I visited Manhattan last weekend and made our first trip to Keens, I was terribly disappointed. The mutton chops that I had looked forward to for weeks came out undercooked with a presentation that was very disappointing. I asked for the meat cooked medium but it came out rare and cut into small pieces. I typically would not leave a review in this situation but when spending $250 on dinner, I expect more.
Food was average. Service was absolutely horrible. I would not go back!!
Waiter was distracted. And we got there early—so no excuse. Porterhouse was three was ok. Not del friscos or Ruth Chris. Passable but there are many other options in nyc.
Good service and quality. Location also nice.
Everything start to finish was delicious! The mutton chop was as expected....phenomenal!
Went there to celebrate my daughter’s 7th birthday , just her and I . The staff was very accommodating and made my daughter feel extra special.the food was as it always is, excellent. For it being my daughter’s first fine dining experience , it will be a hard one to beat. Thank you.
Excellent carnivores hangout. Oozing old city vibe, and old world service.
Awesome meal and even better atmosphere!
Excellent service and food. Pricey but worth it.
I would recommend not eating the day of so you have room for everything. The bacon was fantastic just enough salt and fat, crab cakes were light and flavorful. T bone was perfection. Shrooms and spinach perfect. Key lime pie had powerful flavors and textures. Malbec blend was very nice as well. $150 seems like a lot but was worth it. I’ll be back for sure.
Fantastic! Had not been to Keens in about 20 years... Returned with husband and sisters. Lovely evening overall! Our server was excellent, friendly and helpful. Drinks and wine options perfect. The food: outstanding! Our steaks were cooked to perfection, the sides were good. I can only complain about the shishito peppers - overcooked. Really, not too much to complain about. Perfect evening! Thank you!
Excellent food, great service. Went before a Rangers game!
Overall not bad but the quality of the meat was average and not cooked as ask.Regarding the service very friendly but nobody never rifiled the wine glasses ...not good and not acceptable for this level of price
Fuimos la familia para comer muy buena carne y así fue, aunque también el pescado muy bien hecho. El Maetre español muy bueno recomendado bien las cantidades correctas . Todo el personal fue muy amable, nos contaron la historia del establecimiento y nos mostraron el mismo. Un placer volver siempre a este lugar en la historia de NY.
Met three colleagues for lunch to go over business. Service was excellent, food was cooked perfectly to order, atmosphere was excellent and overall value and experience was perfect
Waiters shouldn’t be pushing clients to order. We need time and relax to see the menu
We ordered our porterhouse for 2 medium and it was cooked like medium rare.
May be the best steak in the World!!!!
We like this restauran very much!!!
Great experience. Looking forward to going back.
Took a couple of first-timers who both loved it. Our server Eliot was excellent. Meat of course was terrific as usual. Want to point out one important thing: One of our group is a vegetarian. Often vegetarians must cobble together sides to make a meal; one might even forgive a steakhouse such as Keens for lacking veggies. But my friend enjoyed a seasonal vegetable platter that was thoughtfully put together and delicious. As more and more workplaces, families and friend-groups include vegetarians, it's really important for restaurants to make them welcome so all the others are welcome, too. Thanks!
I am in a wheelchair and it is not wheelchair friendly at all!
If I was not able to be somewhat mobile with my husband’s help I I would not have been able to dine here .
First time dining here after all of the years of traveling to New York. Can't wait to go back!! We've been telling all our friends how delicious it was.
Celebrating my son's 16 th. Fantastic
Keens Steakhouse was terrific, as always!! Love going there!!
My husband and I were looking for a good steak dinner while we were on our little get-a-way to New York. We took a chance on Keens and were nothing but amazed. The steak was top notch! The staff were amazing! The restaurant itself was very quaint and romantic. We are already looking forward to our next trip to New York, primarily to go to Keens again! Thank you!
Steak was cooked perfectly on the first try! Simple thing to comment on but it's so important. We ate in the Bull Moose room - very cool ambiance, classy, old school New York.
Super Steaks, super Location!
We had a great dinner, great cocktails, and great service!
Delicious as usual!
Part of NYC history is here!! The place speaks by itself. Everything was fantastic!! My husband was celebrating his 51th birthday and the restaurant bring a cake with a candle for him, so unexpected.
The place is big but with the different rooms doesn’t feel crowded or noisy.
Our steaks were spectacular, thanks Keen’s!!
Carne di eccellente qualità, tenera, cottura perfetta, prezzo adeguato, personale gentile e disponibile, locale caratteristico e con luci soffuse.
Always exceeds my expectations. Excellent in every way
Not as good as it has always been in the past. I would give the steaks a B-
Expected better service- ie- no one explained the specials,menu.... they were nice enough but no better than any standard restaurant.
Was seated upstairs and they were loud, large parties - not very conducive for a nice dinner out with husband.
Mutton chop to die for. This place has serious history. It’s a firm favorite.
