I booked a reservation in advance of our trip to NYC via Open Table and our reservation was waiting for us. We were taken to an upstairs room which had approximately 6 tables. It was nice and cozy and allowed us to have a normal table conversation. I dined with my wife and son. Brenna (I think this was her name and I apologize if I got it wrong) was the head waiter for the room and was complimented by and able body staff of 2-3 additional helpers. They provided great service, attentive, but not hovering or rushing. The room was very dark ornate wood as is much of the restaurant, with all the clay pipes fastened to the ceiling. The story of the restaurant is on the back of the menu. When I was a boy and "forced" to dine out on special occasions with my parents, we went to a nice steak house and the first thing they brought out was a relish tray. Keens continues this tradition serving a relish tray loaded with carrots, celery, and pickles, with an awesome bleu cheese dipping dressing. It is a perfect compliment to a cocktail while perusing the menu. Cocktails are not skimpy, which I like. They also bring out warm bread and butter. I ordered the 8 ounce filet (which is plenty big enough) especially if you get an appetizer or salad and a couple of side dishes. I had the lettuce wedges (yes two) salad with tomatoes and bacon in a bleu cheese dressing. It was perfect. The steak was ordered medium and cooked to perfection. It was tender and delicious. We also ordered hash browns and mushrooms for the table. My wife had the filet as well and she really liked it and she can be very picky. My son ordered the sirloin and it looked like about 14 ounces or so. He enjoyed it as well. They have a great wine list and we ordered a bottle. I think it was Merlot. All I remember is that it really complemented the meal. We finished by sharing a NYC cheese cake. WeThe pub looks great too! The prices are NYC fine dining prices and you get what you pay for. Well worth the value!! This is now my go to Steak House when I am in NYC!!
