Keens is as Old New York as it gets.. Open since 1885, this steakhouse is pretty much the Museum of Natural Meat Eating History.
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 !
Beast Steak in town👌🏼
Seriously amazing experience. My wife and I came for my birthday, I got the mutton, she got the sirloin, and we got a bunch of sides. Service was very attentive without being intrusive, food was amazing, and the ambiance is classic. Obviously, it’s not cheap, but totally worth it in my opinion!
Amazing as always. Excellent food and great atmosphere.
Keen's Chophouse is not only a famous New York City institution, it also is a literally wonderful place to enjoy a great meal with great ambiance and exceptional service. We had porterhouse for two, and it was perfection. Perhaps next time we will try their mutton chops, for which Keens originally was most well-know and which still are reputed to be delicious. We do not drink, but their house made ice tea and ginger ale were perfect, and the Saratoga Spring water was nice as well. (They serve simple syrup with the ice tea, which makes a difference. As I have written, our service was impeccable, from the waiter to the busboys and supporting servers. Everyone is gracious and proper without being needlessly formal. Our deserts were divine! My wife got the key lime pie, which everyone loves. But I hit the jackpot by ordering Keen's Coffee Cantata, which is a sundae with coffee ice cream, hot fudge, a great berry syrup/sauce, fresh whipped cream, and a light crispy cookie. Best desert I have had in ages anywhere!! We loved Keen's and recommend it most highly to all.
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.
Food was very good, as usual. Service was attentive and the ambiance is old world.
As always an amazing experience in a timeless setting. English cut prime rib was great for lunch. Bacon was fantastic as always
Great atmosphere, good meal.
Very nice restaurant.
A bit expensive.
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
So great!!! Everything is as professional as could be and a wonderful ambiance.
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!
Broadway Musical and being in the city for the day
Trip to NYC must include dinner at Keen’s but make sure you go hungry. Huge cuts of meat cooked to perfection. Love it. Also, a shout-out to Nick for his great service! Thank you.
Good meal. Good service. Server can smile a little more but did his job just fine.
Girls weekend of dining- we were suggested to try Keens! Amazing steaks!! Great prices for the wine and entrees!! Attentive server and staff. Birthday surprises. All very good.
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!
Enjoyed a great meal. Servers remembered the birthday that I had mentioned when booking. Can't wait to return!
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 !!
Great dinner while visiting nyc. The location and food were something you cannot get anywhere else.
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.
Nice place, original, great food, perfect service, very good ambiance
Keens was a real treat! What a way to finish our holiday to New York! We had the chateaubriand which was so tender and cooked to perfection, the best steak we have had in all our travels!
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.
A great combination of history and fantastic food.
Great food. Amazing service. Nice atmosphere and not too noisy. Perfect for a business lunch.
Delicious steak! 🥩 The place was busy with all tables filled, but service was fast and food was great!
Keen's had been on the bucket list for a long time and didn't disappoint. Food was spectacular throughout, service was unobtrusive was excellent. Went to catch up with an old friend and it exceeded my expectations. A classic spot that earns its reputation.
Bacon appetizer is amazing. Perfectly cooked steaks.
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.
Perfect. Prime rib was the best we’ve ever had!
Very overrated steakhouse. The food and service is far better in other steakhouses in NYC. Plus this is on the high end for pricing as well.
Great steak, great ambiance, and overall service. Took my friend here on a Sunday night, and we truly enjoyed the food, decor, and service. Definitely recommend this for a nice time.
Great atmosphere! Service and food On a 1 to 10 scale was about seven
I’ve been to Keens several times and each time I fall in love! One, if not the best steakhouse in nyc.
Excellent. The best steakhouse ever!
Very nice atmosphere!
