Went with some friends for lunch. Excellent experience. Would definitely recommend it. I know most of the well known NY steakhouse and this is definitely my favorite so far. It's not cheap but worth the money

We ordered prime porterhouse with medium well-done. Even if it was medium well-done, the meat was so though. And also, the service was not good. Generally, I felt a waiter is unkind. I don’t want to visit again.

What a great meal. Went with two work colleagues. Old school steakhouse that is excellent. Two of us had steaks and one had lamb. Would highly recommend Keens.

If an Alberta beef girl was wowed over her 8 oz fillet mignon , nothing else needs to be said. Service was top notch and the restaurant itself has such an interesting history. Pricey but so worth it.

Hmmm... Food was okay. Service could be so much better. A little arrogant! Ambiance is perfect! Will I recommend? Peter Luger in Brooklyn - much better for us.

Not the first visit and won’t be the last. Always great steaks served by great staff. For meat foodies this is hard to beat

Love this place Food and service always great. The “Mutton Chop “ is to die for. Bring your appetite, portions are big , so share starters and sides. Also the decor is very unusual . Do not miss

There are business people in suits and families in jeans and sneakers. The restaurant itself is not elegant but clubby in feel. You will be one of the more dressed up couples but you shouldn't feel out of place. It is... More
