What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.9

Keens is as Old New York as it gets.. Open since 1885, this steakhouse is pretty much the Museum of Natural Meat Eating History.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Keen’s is my favorite Manhattan steak house. It’s the real deal, has that old New York ambiance, choice of classy dining room, cozy pub area or traditional bar. Food is excellent and service to match. It was our anniversary, so they gave us complimentary champagne. The meat is just amazing and huge! Come with an appetite. I love the prime rib, but I do wish they had a ribeye.

They served perfectly with excellent steaks. I appreciated their supports to carry our luggage and let us use a restroom to change kid's diaper. Classic atmosphere with warm service.

By far the best service and food we’ve had! Seven of us came into the city, many for the first time, to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday. Sorin, our server was fantastic and anticipated our every need. Food was cooked to perfection, martinis were great and was overall our favorite memory in the city. We’ll definitely be returning!

a great find with a lot of history behind the restaurant. Food was cooked as requested. service was good.. The only negative comment would be the server did not ask if we wanted an appetizer.

WOW Keens steakhouse is a must when in New York. Got the porterhouse for 2 with side mushrooms and was truly awesome!

I had friends visiting from the Philippines and one of them was celebrating his birthday. By coincidence, it was also Fathers’ Day. Our server told us that the first round of drinks was on the house for fathers and we told him that there were only 2 fathers in our party of 6. When the bill came, all 4 cocktails were comped, even if 2 of those were not for fathers.

The top draw of Keens is its food, the second its ambience (its the oldest steakhouse in the United States, I think), and the third its great service. When reserving a table, be sure to ask for one in the Teddy Roosevelt Room. The second floor tables have better lighting than the ground floor dining room.

My wife and I come to Keens every time we are in New York City and we’ve never been disappointed. This was for our fourth wedding anniversary dinner and the staff went above and beyond. We were brought out two glasses of champagne as a congratulations on behalf of Keens. What a great surprise. The food was cooked to perfection. My wife got the fillet and I went with the king cut prime rib that was out of this world.
A special thank you to our waitress Brittney who was awesome throughout the night. She gladly offered to take our picture and was attentive to our table the entire time. Keens has never let us down but Brittney was by far the most personal waitress we’ve had. Keep it up Keens! You’ll always be the best of New York City!!

名前を伝えるとすぐに通してもらえました。二階の奥の小上がりになったところに案内して頂き、お店の雰囲気がよくわかりました。天井には無数のパイプがあり重厚感溢れる清潔な店内で、店員も一流の接客。特別なランチをいただきました。

フィレ肉8oz、スパークリングワイン、マッシュポテトを頼みました。一人で来ましたが、マッシュポテトハーフサイズにしますねと提案されましたが結果ちょうどいい量でした。まぁ、フィレ肉の美味しいこと!!火の通り加減、柔らかさ、肉質、全てにおいて完璧と言いざるを得ません。マッシュポテトも滑らかで、私の求めていたものでした。プラスで追加したマッシュルームソースも気分を変えるためによく、2ドルなら安いという印象です。もちろん頼まなくても塩加減がちょうど良く美味しく食べられたとは思います。

ご褒美ということでしか来られない高級なお店でしたが、次回ニューヨークに訪れた時には必ず再訪したいです。とても美味しかったです。

Great steak house with impeccable service. Steaks prepared to perfection, definitely avoid the Yukon mashed potatoes, they are not scratch made but rather of the instant variety. The carrot cake is not to be missed, best we've ever had. The general manager treated us to top shelf martinis as we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary! Overall a wonderful experience.

The food was good, but not great. The steak was tinder and juicy, but I had similar steaks for a lot less. The service was not as I would have expected for what we paid.

ピータールーガーかここかで迷いましたが、知人からこちらを勧められて訪問。丁度エンパイアに行った帰りのランチに伺う。
店内は歴史を感じさせてくれ、数々の著名人も通ったことがハッキリと感じ取れる。
注文は小さいサイズのフィレ。何の文句も出ない完璧な焼き加減。味もしっかりと感じられ、この店を選んで正解であったと納得させられる。
次のNYC行きの際も、必ず訪れたいお店となった。

I rarely leave bad reviews, but had to leave this feedback after our dinner experience.

1) Wines by the glass ordered came out later than our entrees
2) Steaks (porterhouse for 2 and filet mignon) came out cold sent it back for re-heat
3) Steaks came out cold again ate a bit anyway as we felt sorry for the waiter but sent it back for re-heat for second time
4) Finally steaks came out warm enough
5) After the multiple back and forth, our waiter did not check on us until the very end (he felt sorry and offered free cheesecake)

I am sorry to leave a negative feedback, but overall, it was not a good dining experience at all.

Perfect. Every course, the wine list, the room, the energy—-a perfect steakhouse with salads and side dishes that never disappoint.
The servers are knowledgeable and helpful but neither hover nor ignore. An absolutely top quality grass fed sirloin and a perfectly cooked Arctic Char followed the 15 ingredient salad, which was fresh, crisp and light. Green beans were delicious, and the well-priced and chosen wine list complimented the meal perfectly.

No attitude. Just excellent.

Excellent service. Friendly and professional servers helpfully explained items offered on the menu. Staff allowed our small group to hang out/chat at our table while they prepared for the dinner service. They did not rush us out and made us feel very comfortable staying as long as we wanted during the break between the lunch-dinner service. Truly a wonderful dining experience!
