This is my favorite steak house in NY. FIrst of all because of the atmosphere and the fact, that unlike other steak houses, it is not too noisy. The food is simply delicious and a friend of mine, who is an experienced steak house goer and loves Kobe beef, put it in very sinple words: the best steak house he... More

This is one of our favorite places to dine in New York. At least once a month, my wife and I make a point of making the trip from NJ to enjoy a great steak and finishing the evening with a nighcap at the cozy bar. We also celebrate the holidays there every year with the family. The food and... More

Great meal in an historic restaurant. Ask about all the pipes on the ceiling. Our table was ready when we arrived and we were served by Mohammed, one of the best waiters we have ever had. He was professional, polished, had wonderful suggestions (even gave us the name of a bar for afterwards) and a sly sense of humor. Thank... More

I have tried to sum up the entire experience in the title. The interior is unlike anything I've ever come across before with its extraordinary collection of pipes. The wood paneling and the vast moose head surveying the room, with the red velvet seating, makes for a visually arresting space. The highlight of the meal was the superb service. Our... More

My wife and I had dinner here last Hogmanay. My wife was pregnant, so we wanted to go for a nice meal rather than a raucous night on the tiles for New Year. We coudn't have picked a better place. We had a couple of drinks upstairs before being seated. The bar upstairs is worth a visit in itself. Great... More

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
