A friend of mine who dines in here regularly has been telling me to go here the next time I was in New York. The service was excellent and my partner ordered the sirloin steak which was huge and cooked to perfection. I ordered the lamb which very tender. The side orders of green beans and spinach were amazing but... More

Visited with wife with lots of expectations. The place looks good. The waiter was great and gave us good recommendations. We took the T-Bone and one fillet. Both were great. The wine was good and so was the creme bruillet. Great experience.

Had the fillet (medium) in very established steak house. It's quaint inside and the waiters are very attentive. We didn't book as it was early evening. The steak was simply amazing, soft, full of taste and very easy to eat. Had green beans and fries on the side. The wine list is brilliant too. We had a Malbec which was... More

The best steak! Yes. In a steakhouse you expect to eat steaks, but this one has been different: unique! the best one I've ever eaten in my life. Best than in South Africa or Argentina too. Really excellent!

Had dinner and we both had the steak. It was cooked to perfection. The only downside was that we both felt as though we were being rushed. Other than that, we had a great meal and will definitely visit again.

My wife, granddaughter and I enjoyed a great steak and dining experience at Keens. We chose this restaurant as it is highly rated by other patrons. We were not disappointed as the meals were prompt and tasty. Our server was very professional and courteous. I would highly recommend this restaurant when visiting Manhattan.

We ate on the third floor and the whole place was busy. The quality of the food is high and the service matches. Good wine list. Its pricey but I guess it is to be expected in Manhattan.

The steak and prime rib is awesome. Love the bar in this place too. Great after work for a single malt (they have hundreds available). The bar and restaurant fills up fast so if you want to eat you need a reservation. It's my favorite after work place to go int he city.

Best steak house in NY. This place with it's history should be on everyone's bucket list. All meat is good. My favorite is the ribeye. The service is good. They could have had some non-US wines and a waiter with some more wine experience, but besides that this is just perfect.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
