The place is very cozy with a lot of things hanging from the wall. You can the the wood floor when you walk. Try the Porterhouse or the Mutton Chop and for the sides ask for the creamed spinach.

Business dinner. Quite satisfied overall, but very expensive: $400+ before tip for a party of 3 with cocktails and a bottle of wine. Quite loud seated next to a large party of 8 at the next table. Wait-staff, not particularly attentive. Cocktails: filled to the rim. Wine: good selection, reasonably priced. Appetizers: excellent - thick-cut bacon appetizer - delicious -... More

My wife & I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary here and was it ever a great place to do so in. The food was delicious, the staff had us feel at right at home and made sure we taken care of. You couldn't ask for a better atmosphere—old NY. While there were many other diners on many levels of the... More

It's very expensive but in my view you get your moneys worth. The steaks are cooked to perfection and the waiters are very good and always there to top up your drink. Made a lovely end to a lovely trip.

My husband and I had our best NYC classic steakhouse restaurant experience at Keen's. If you like old New York, see the the history here ... the pipes, bar, wood. Famous for the mutton chop (don't be put off ... it's a triple cut lamb loin with the back bone in which means six chops, not gamey like a leg)... More

Me and my wife had dinner at Keen's a few days ago. We read possitive reviews on TripAdvisor prior to our trip and saw that it was located next to our hotel (Hyatt Place), so we made a reservation on a whim. I later read the history of Keen's on their webpage and got really excited about going to the... More

The place is hard to find, but worth looking for it. It´s great. The food is excellent. I have been traveling around the world and got the very best chateaubriand at Keens. The service is at it´s best.

Went to Keens after recommendation from friends and we weren't let down. The steaks were cooked to perfection, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Only downside was it's a little expensive, however I guess you get what you pay for. I'd pay that to have that meal again!! Well done Keens!!

We were looking for a steakhouse for my husband's birthday dinner. I decided on Keens. The food was wonderful! Service was impeccable. I ordered the mutton chop; it was tender and delicious. My husband ordered a steak, he said it was the best he ever had. The history of this restaurant is alive in its decor and the hand carved... More
