Today Keens legendary mutton chops and dry aged prime steaks are still without equal in the city.

Arrived at the appointed reservation time and our table was ready --- no waiting. Always a plus. Service was very professional and we were given considerable time to select from the menu while we chatted with our friends from Europe that we had not seen for several years --- no rushing. The food, as always, was excellent. Overall atmosphere was... More

I had a few drinks and dinner at the bar this evening. The place was absolutely packed with 3-4 deep at the bar. Staff (of two) was good and responsive despite being overwhelmed. Food was excellent. Highly recommend the TBone. Hash browns were great as well.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed dining at keens. Very interesting to see how many historical figures have been inside these walls. Some great artifacts and almost a museum in itself and walking distance from Times Square. Make reservations well in advance (weeks or so) and take time before and after to peruse the areas of the restaurant that you... More

Very very nice beef! Just loved it. The price is a bit high. Remember to dress well, no one was wearing a cap or sneakers.

My friend treated ourselves after the breast cancer walk in Central Park to this place. We were greeted by the receptionist and assisted to our table. Initially, we thought the space between tables was too tiny. As we were enjoying our dinner, we were also having fun with the people around us, as we were talking to each other, too.... More

It had been several years since I last visited Keens and I was delighted to see that the old place hadn’t changed a bit ! The restaurant exudes history and tradition and the food and service does not disappoint. My better half settled for a starter of oysters which she enjoyed immensely (and she is an oyster connoisseur !) and... More

Not sure why so many people say that Keens is the best steakhouse in NYC......very disappointing visit. Was seated next to an old fireplace where gas was leaking. Got a new table smaller and squeezed in between a long row of tables. Got the wine list again very touristic and a very limited selection in American Pinot Noir (all pretty... More
