I don´t eat meat and my husband is a crazy carnivore. The experience is very nice, service was spotless. Was nice to acknowledge about the place history and it's particular and traditional decoration. The new york cheesecake is a very good option as a dessert.

We love Keens. We stopped in the scotch bar first and sampled a rare scotch. Then into the dining room for stars and lamb. The food is always great, and the service if fabulous.

For a guy who used to eat red meat, this is saying a lot. The Artic Char, unreal! The baked potatoes and veggies roasted were outstanding!

This is a really good traditional American steakhouse. The steak is great and there is a reasonable selection of cuts. Service is good and our server was very chatty but seemed a bit rushed when we first arrived as it was busy. There is a...More

Corporate dinner with most of the group ordering steak. Some of the steaks wee served so underdone that they were sent back to the kitchen, which spoiled the experience. Otherwise god quality and interesting offerings. Expensive, but no more so than the rest of NYC.
