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.

We had a late dinner after the show and went here for my Fiancé’s Birthday, this was highly recommended next to Peter Luger’s Steakhouse. The food was great, ambiance and history was amazing, the service was awesome except they forgot my note on Open Table for my Fiancé’s Birthday 🎂😔

Short changed at bar before being seated.. My wife and I were sat next to man who's only adjective all night was f word, said very loudly. Staff oblivious. Filet mignon was overcooked, Medium when med-rare ordered. Fries average.Been looking forward to it since booking last month. Overall disappointing. Gallagher's next time for us !

We chose Keen's to celebrate my 70th Birthday while on a recent visit to New York from the UK. We had a truly memorable evening. Everything about Keen's was outstanding. I don't know if my wife and I will ever make it back to NYC but if we do we will be sure to return to Keens.

The prime rib was good quality meat and cooked correctly but needed flavoring. Service was only adequate. I could have been anywhere. Cocktails were good. Wine average. Very ordinary experience for a restaurant of this caliber. Restaurant itself comfortable

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.

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.

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.
