On holiday from the UK - a cold and rainy night we wanted something close to our hotel. Just around the corner was Keens. All the good reviews are true. We hadn't booked so needed to wait 40 minutes in the bar. A great atmosphere and place to be. Attentive staff and excellent food. The best fillet steak I have... More

Our next visit to New York will definitely include a return trip to Keens, our only disappointment was that we only discovered it on our last day. The restaurant is like stepping into a Charles Dickens novel, dark wood walls, ceilings covered in clay pipes and traditionally turned out waiters with waistcoats and long aprons. However, decor and service apart,... More

Apart fro the fact that we were so relieved to get out of the driving rain, -twice I had been drenched by a taxi- this is a really fabulous restaurant. All the ceilings are covered in clay pipes, one for each member, I believe, as it used to be a gentleman's club; when a member died, the shaft was snapped.... More

Fabulous steakhouse in NYC. Keens is a historic local icon. If you want a local, traditional alternative to the national chains, I would strongly recommend Keens. Two in our party had the Filet, which was fabulous. The porterhouse was massive - a real man's steak. The double lamb chops were great and they serve homemade mint jelly. Pricy, but excellent...

Went there for lunch, atmosphere is good and staff are friendly. I had a lobster bisque and steak, both are delicious and will go back again.

the pipes on the ceiling are such a cool thing i loved just looking around. The bartender for our before dinner drink was fantastic, and my wine was wonderful. At dinner I had one of the best bloody mary's I have ever tasted. The steak was to die for. I will say that rather than splitting a huge porter house... More

We went here for my bachelor party. Very classic steakhouse, one of the oldest restaurants in NYC and it shows (in a positive way mostly). Service was fair but a lot of history and character made up for it.
