Keens is as Old New York as it gets.. Open since 1885, this steakhouse is pretty much the Museum of Natural Meat Eating History.
The mutton was beyond delicious! Great service! Best dining experience in NYC so far!
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.
Fantastic meal. Meat is incredible, the Best I have ever eaten.
Great first night in NYC
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!!
Outstanding food with even better service. Would highly recommend if looking for a traditional NYC steakhouse experience.
On advice of a friend in Philly, we tried Keens for the first time. Fantastic- pricey and worth it. New favorite NY steakhouse.
Has a real authentic steak house feel. Excellent service. Pricey but the food portions are huge and delicious! No buyers remorse here. Treat yourself.
The food here is always the best. Love the ambience. Will go back again and again!
Amazing meal as always! The steak quality is great. Keens is the number 1 NYC steakhouse. The cooking is always consistent and cooked to perfection each time! The history is a bonus
Keen's is a great place. I had heard a lot about it--and I was not disappointed. Can't wait to go again.
Service was excellent, waiter recommended a very good bottle of wine and the Porterhouse was cooked perfectly.
My son birthday and the brought his cheesecake out with a candle in it..awesome food..
Very good quality of food and a great personal! special, old fashioned and amazing location!
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.
Great time, great food, excellent service (Joey L). Will definitely come back again.
Good service, nice atmosphere and big sized steaks. Went for the T-bone which tasted amazing!
food was great - good selection - sufficient portions - quality was great
Outstanding service, superb food and magnificent steaks! Ambiance of the place filled with an old charm and history. Highly recommend!
We had a excellent meal in lovely surroundings , the staff were very friendly and accommodating and the service was excellent from filling your glasses as you sat down to taking your orders topping your glasses up serving there excellent food , I will have no hesitation in booking again on my next trip to NY
Had a great meal at Keens. Excellent service with great recommendations. The portions were very generous.
Recommended for its steaks and we were not disappointed. Fantastic but be warned big portions for us English folk!!!! Perfectly cooked, flavourful and juicy I had the filet and he had NY sirloin both were excellent. Best fries we had in NYC. Staff were friendly .
Love the decor of pipes and the historical vibe. We felt we were is NYC’s real past. Well worth a visit.
The Filet Mignon was delightful. However the T Bone, although a good portion, was a little fatty. The overall experience was great. Thank you for a fabulous dinner!
Great as always. The real deal in every sense of the word. Nothing tops their porterhouse or prime rib.
Best Steaks ever! And Great wine menu! Service was also excellent
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.
It was our 50 th anniversary. Food was excellent. Service was very good but a little less attentive as the place got busy.
Keens is one of my New York favorites. Food and service always good. I would recommend for any special occasion
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!
I have been many times but this was my first business lunch and it was as delightful as I expected. Good cocktails, good service and great food. Nice mix of the regular menu and some lighter selections.
