Really one of the best steakhouses I've been to. It had ambiance, character, and of course great meat. Came here with a bachelor party. Normally I order a ribeye at any steakhouse I haven't been to, so was surprised it wasn't on the menu. Our group ordered two porterhouses for two, their famous mutton chops, and prime rib. The porterhouse... More

This amazing steak house never disappoints. Juicy thick prime New York strip is cooked to perfection. The service is professional. The spinach side is tasty not too heavy or too creamy. The atmosphere is fun, the pipes on the ceiling add an original touch.

We stopped in before seeing a Broadway Show. We got there just as they opened to find that they were booked with reservations for the evening. We were told we could order food at the bar but the seating was not what we were looking for. After a little chat with the host, a cancelation was discovered and we got... More

Called in here on the off chance of a table. We were welcomed and shown to a table immediately. The waitress was excellent at exposing the specials and advised us about portion size. The red wine is heavenly and I was told the rose is good too. The food was brought out promptly as was the dirty glassware taken away.... More

Excellent, service, excellent food. if you entertaining from out of town, head here. The chicken is delicious and you have to get the shishito peppers! Everyone raves about the steaks every time we go there. Pricey but I think this place is as solid a steak place anywhere in Manhattan where there is some stiff competition

Absolutely loved Keens, classy and quality steakhouse with attentive servers and delicious food. I love that whilst you wait they bring each table some celery and carrots with a delicious blue cheese sauce. I had the medallion steak with the lobster and it was so so tasty! Highly recommend this restaurant especially being a big steak fan

I visited here before a hockey game last month. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating. She asked if we were going to a game so she could get us out on time. The bacon appetizer was incredible! Seriously, I could have ordered two more of these and skipped the entrée, but I didn't - had the ribeye, which was... More

They're still kicking it (as in they are still very good). As fashions change Keens relentlessly focus on traditionally exceptional steaks and chops in a cosy, dark wood, low, clay piped lined, ceiling. One of the top 10 dining experiences in New York.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
