About

Keens Steakhouse, a classic New York chophouse, was already famous for its steaks and chops at the turn of the century. Founded in 1885, Keens has 90,000 clay pipes that line the ceilings – pipes once smoked by customers after dinner. Today Keens legendary mutton chops and dry aged prime steaks are still without equal in the city.

A New York classic with some serious meat dishes that is not touristy and not boring.

Venerable steakhouse is looking a little worse for the wear. But fortunately, the meat is still first rate. And that's what matters.

We had such an amazing time. I wish I could figure out how they made their mushroom gravy. Never had anything like it and I LOVED it! Someone send me the recipe!!

I love this place. It's one of the classic old NYC steak houses, but the chicken salad is amazing. Order the "old" or "original" bloody Mary mix. It's much better. And have a chocolate sundae.

In my humble opinion, the best steakhouse in Manhattan by far. Great aged steak selection; robust "non-meat" menu with many great alternatives. Great service in a mid-20th century atmosphere. Highly recommended

Food is on point and very reasonably portioned/priced for its location and history. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful, and the restaurant takes pride in its history. Make sure to take a look at the pipe collection near the entrance. The restaurant has all the standard steakhouse fare, but don't sleep on the mutton chop, which is cooked like steak and is something unique.

I went here with my mom for a mom and daughter night out. Keen's is known for food and with no surprise it was good. I know you have to have a mutton chop here but we saw gentlemen seating next to us eating mutton chops and decided it was too much for us, so we had other steaks. My mom is not a big fan of steak but she liked it very much. Service was good and the interior was interesting. I'll definitely go back and try mutton chop next time :)

Keen's is one of my favorite New York restaurants, especially for special occasions including getting together with friends I haven't seen in quite a while. The food is always excellent, the dining rooms are quite special and the service is a tutorial for similar high-end establishments. The past few times with a group we have had the waiter help us order a selection of dishes that we have shared. Add a few sides and every meal has become a wonderful experience.

My favorite neighborhood steakhouse (I work just three blocks away!). Their legendary mutton chop makes you keep coming back again and again. We always take our visiting dignitaries here for lunch and dinner and they rave about the experience. Truly one of the best steakhouses in New York City. Older than Peter Luger's!

I want to love this place but I don't. It's always just a little off food wise- too salty or too bland- but it has a fabulous vibe and real old school feel. It's a quintessential NYC steakhouse.

Hard to get reservations which should tell you something. Sometimes you can luck out and get a table in the bar but don't count on it. Amazing prime rib. Most steakhouses don't serve prime rib but serve rib steaks. Keens serves prime rib but no ribsteaks. Go figure. Great service, ambience, and a tab that reflects it. If you have drinks/wine and three courses you're going to drop $300-400 without even trying. But Keens is the best steakhouse in the City and being in business over 100 years should tell you something. Especially in a city as demanding as New York.
