The mutton chop at Keen's was absolutely delicious, albeit somewhat pricey ($60). The service was 1st rate and the atmosphere was very "old New York" and unique with the celebrity owned clay pipes.

Porterhouse for 3 was perfect without starter, but with cheesecake at the end... sirloin cut, crabsalad and lenoncake were much... great ginger ale. Enjoyed a very good business lunch.

Came from the UK to NY for my 50th with my son and his girlfriend, we had my Birthday meal there... Fabulous evening, it really was worth it and food was exquisite..!

Service a little slow to start but was really busy and once we got started it was seemless.

Fab night and a fab place!!

 (Atlanta)·Dined 4 days ago

Went to Keen’s based on the Yelp reviews and others I had seen on-line. Occassion was the final night, and supposed magnificent dinner, celebrating my son’s 21st Birthday trip to NYC. Well - we were very disappointed.

The restaurant was super crowded (seemed to be a lot of large groups) and we were given the corner table immediately behind the hostess stand, which was ok, but certainly not one of the better tables in the house. The service was subpar for a restaurant of this statue and price. While our waiter was knowledgable of the menu, he had too many tables and did not provide the attention I typically receive and expect from this type of restaurant. He did suggest a good Cabernet which we enjoyed.

Regarding the food, it was pretty good, but not all that. My son and I got the mutton chop, which was good, but not all it is built up to be. However, it was good in size at 26 oz. bone in. My wife had the filet which was average. The sides (string beans and Yukon smashed potatoes) were small in portion for the $11 and $12 price tags each, as well as basic, with no distinct flavor.

There is a similarly priced steakhouse in Atlanta (Buckhead), where we are from, that sets the bar on food, service and atmosphere. Paying these prices, that was our expectation and Keen’s is not even in the ballpark on the food and service part. I will give them decent marks on the atmosphere part given the pipes on the ceiling and the overall history and character of the place.

Overall, my 3 rating is generous. When visiting NYC again, I will certainly try my luck at a different restaurant.

This restaurant was a great disappointment. It was our last night in New York. We were looking forward to a great meal in a historic and iconic steakhouse. We were seated next to a huge group of people wearing matching shirts. They were very noisy. Servers first tried to rush us and then ignored us. Oysters Rockefeller were so bad I sent them back. Caesar salad was very poor. Steak looked beautiful but had little flavor. We have better at home. I think this place is a tourist trap. There are so many great restaurants in New York! If you want a steak at a historic restaurant, go to Delmonico’s.

Enjoyed our meal very much. Keens Steakhouse was recommended to us post play and it was wonderful. We will be back to enjoy another amazing meal. My only complaint was that I wanted a chocolate martini and they couldn’t make it because they didn’t have an ingredient that was needed ☹️

I was pleasantly surprised. I had asked for a quiet table and was given a quiet booth for 4 even though there were only 2 of us (and we are both female -- important in a steakhouse where men tend to be favored). The steaks were wonderful, the french fries wonderful and the key lime pie wonderful. We didn't drink but the homemade ginger ales were great too. We received two candles in the piece of key lime pie we shared for dessert (we were each celebrating a birthday). As we were leaving the gal at the coat check handed me a huge bunch of the mini chocolate mints at the front and kept pushing more on me. I have never had such a nice experience at a steakhouse. Bobby Van's on 55th could learn from them.

Keen's has always been my first choice for meats in Manhattan. Mutton Chop is a must to order, you cannot find this anywhere else. That's the one and only menu of Keen's. My client truly enjoyed it and appreciated my choice of restaurant. We, a part of three, started with oysters and shrimps with some glasses of bubbles. Main course is of course Mutton Chop and Porterhouse for two.

2013 Waterstone Cabernet Sauvignon came with great these meats and very reasonably priced. And of course finished with famous Hot Fudge Sundae!! Absolutely fantastic!!

MY neice's 16th we booked this place specially as we spent out anniversary here and loved it and always new we would return. We travelled from Scotland for my neice's birthday and knew this was the 1 place in NY we wanted to treat her to. Weather was bad and we were early so needed out the cold. Staff couldn't have been more welcoming. Thank You 🖒

The host rolled his eyes when we showed up an hour and a half early. Not the best steakhouse I’ve been to but still very good. Steak was very salty and I like salt. The service, crudités and drinks were all awesome. The hash brown was a very small portion but really good. Probably should have gotten the fries.
