Our dinner was very good. We enjoyed the creative use of ingredients and lots of vegetarian options. The "small plate" theme is especially pleasant because there were so many things we were interested in trying. Each component of each dish was obviously thought out and together made a delicious experience. My husband was only slightly less enthusiastic about his choices, otherwise our rating would have been even higher.

I cannot say enough about Keep! I am ecstatic that such a delicious, modern yet classic, foodie restaurant has come to our town. I eat here as often as i can find a babysitter. I am vegan and my husband is a carnivore- we are both completely satisfied with the menu. Highly recommend

The meal was so good that I'm writing the review and we are still here. Small plates, so you can share taste. I absolutely loved the squash soup and I don't usually like it. We will definitely be back.

I brought my wife to Keep as a thank you for everything that she does over the holidays. Only our second visit, but certainly not our last!
We took advantage of a couple of the night’s specials: wild mushrooms (over a white sweet potato purée I think), and tortellini en crudo. Both were excellent.
For our entrees, my wife had the salmon and I had the trout. She’s kind of a salmon aficionado, and thoroughly enjoyed hers. But that didn’t keep her from stealing a few bites of my trout.

Amazing byob restaurant in Jenkintown. We have eaten here several times and finally brought our 20 yo son and 17 yo daughter. Both loved the experience. The food is fresh, inventive and delicious. The owners/chef go out of their way to make your dinner special. I highly recommend this restaurant that feels like center city dining in the suburbs!

Keep is an excellent restaurant and dining experience. The small plate format is perfect. We had really good meals tailored to our appetites and interests in food that evening. We have been to Keep many times and are never disappointed.

This was our first visit to the restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We tried the Chef's tasting menu and we were not disappointed! Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. Plus being a BYOB is awesome! We will definitely visit again.

Nice to have a restaurant in Jenkintown, had great hopes for the tasting menu but for $75 each was disappointed with the chef's choices. The cheese board and tapas selection was great along with soup course very lovely. A shared bean dish and a shared chicken dish as courses were just ok, pasta with duck was disappointing as was the custard for dessert. Nice to get out in our neighborhood instead of heading into town and will try it again just might order from the menu next time.

Lovely intimate restaurant that focuses on good food prepared thoughtfully and beautifully. Just what Jenkintown needs! The owners take their craft seriously. The squash soup is dreamy. The short rib selection was a bit underwhelming in size, however,(menu said 6 ounce portion, but seemed a bit smaller especially for my husband's appetite); could have used a potato accompaniment. I ended up giving my husband half of the generous potatoes that came with my salmon selection. Overall, a delightful, well-paced experience.

The menu is great. It is small, but offers a good variety. They keep some standard options, but change it up just enough to keep it fresh. The staff is incredibly friendly and personable and will customize dishes to your preferences.

Great GEM. The food was excellent and the ambiance was warm and pleasant. We wish we had more time to enjoy. We had the liver, pork belly and Wall eye (pike). Everything was so tasty.
The cheese plate was our starter and it was a great starter. It’s a BYOB so bring a bottle to enjoy and enhance! Great experience!

Nice quiet spot for a special dinner. Food was delicious - the homemade pastas were a highlight, and the pike was cooked perfectly. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. The dining room is cozy and comfortable.

Upscale brunch, which is a new concept in this area. Lovely setting and solid service. Food was excellent. Delicious quiche with super flaky, buttery crust. Side salad was fresh and crisp— a perfect accompaniment. Tasty Rival Brothers coffee. Would have liked a latte option, but coffee was spot on. Highly recommend. Can’t wait to return and try other options.
