    This massive, flavorful mutton chop (actually a saddle of lamb) is well worth a trip to Keens, especially when you tack on a wedge salad, or a side of the famed prime rib hash. Read more

    The best Steakhouse i have ever been. Make a reservation 1-2 days before. Try Mutton Chops and Supreme Fillet Mignon.

    Have yourself the perfect lunch. Glorious rare cheese burger and a solid glass of red. The quiet dark bar is a little piece of solitude amidst the humid, bustling streets of NYC.

    My new favorite steakhouse in the city, great vibe, service and most importantly some of the best steak I’ve had. The mutton is a must as well. Be aware that the kings cut could feed an entire table!

    If you're sitting at the bar, get the filet Mignon skewers. They are the same amount of meat as the filet Mignon at a fraction of the price, and equally as tasty.

    This truly is a New York experience, a place to splurge and truly enjoy every minute. Everything from my mutton to the sides were excellent. Make sure to leave room for dessert, def banana’s foster

    Mutton Chop is legendary and the T-bone steak is delightful. Sides are also great! Ambience and service are exceptional. I highly recommend!

    One of the best filet mignon I had in my life so far. This place is rich with history, flavors and after your visit, good memories. It may be pricy, but you should try it at least once!

    The mutton chop in the picture is delicious, but the prime rib is even better, more succulent and flavorful. Don't worry about missing the house signature dish, it's worth it!

    Everyone says to get the mutton but don't overlook choosing to sit downstairs over sitting upstairs. The downstairs has much more charm and rambunctiousness of an NYC steakhouse.

    The experience of a porterhouse for 3 and Mutton-chop in the Lincoln room is unlike any other steakhouse. Keens steaks far and away are the most flavorful and tastefully aged I’ve come across in NY.

    The mutton is legendary and delicious (don’t sleep on the mint jelly), but some disassembly required. Skip the seafood platter, just go for oysters. Get the bacon, dip in blue cheese

    On par if not better than Peter Lugars as best steakhouse in NYC. Believe the hype: get the mutton chop and pair it with a glass of scotch or whiskey. Prompt service as well!

    Love their double lamb chops... Oysters you definitely have to try.. Highly recommend the butterscotch sundae & creme brûlée ... On a side note... They make an awesome French martini & dirty martini!

    This legendary spot has been around since 1885. Though the steak is excellent, Keen’s is best known for its mutton-a huge, bone-in roasted lamb that will have you channeling your inner cavewoman. Read more

    For more adventurous carnivores, there’s the eminent mutton chop, a boot-size hunk of meat flanked by fatty ribbons of mature lamb and pierced through the center by a crest-shaped slice of bone. Read more

    You have reached the summits of NY Steak dining once you slide into the dark, warm, and inviting wine soaked walls of Keens. I order the mutton. He wants the hash. Both partial to a gibson.

    Everthing here is top notch. Starting at the bar where they have a nice selection of bourbons. At the table you can't go wrong with any of the steaks. I recommend getting a mutton chop for the table.

    Fantastic steakhouse. Very traditional New York style steakhouse. Great meat and wine. Great before and after a show depending on your schedule. Highly suggest in midtown. One of the best in the city.

    A very good restaurant and food. Unfortunately our group of 4 encountered a very unpleasant and snobbish waitress named Ramona who did not care about foreigners. Taking this away it is a VERY good.

    Get a mutton chop with a side of history at this century old steakhouse that offers delicious food, perfect cocktails, & a killer ambiance. Those on a budget can hit up the bar room. [Eater 38 Member]

    Iconic steakhouse in the city. Mutton chops are supposed their claim of fame but we wanted steak that night. Ordered the porterhouse for 2. So much food, excellent quality of meat.

    Can be relatively casual (which is nice). 8 oz. filet mignon au poivre was worth the $50 price tag. Asparagus could've been a bit more seasoned & cooked. Affogato is a great way to end the meal.

    Amazing place with a storied past. Great appetizers were Caesar salad, Lump Crab Cocktail, and Crab Cakes. Famous Mutton Chop was huge, outstanding, and very flavorful. Tough to cut but still great.

    The restaurant still features classics like Oysters Rockefeller, Prime Rib and Dover Sole. However, the star of the show is the Legendary Mutton Chop, a huge bone-in hunk of juicy saddle of lamb. Read more

    The mutton chops are everything they're said to be. What if you lived your life always ordering the mutton whenever you found yourself at a warm clubby place that served it? You could do worse.

    For less than the price of the famous mutton (mutton!), treat yourself to the chopped salad, three slabs of thick cut bacon and a glass of Bruichladdich 10yr. Dinner of champions.

    Legendary NYC steakhouse. The filet was perfect. If you’re having a drink before dinner, my suggestion would be to wait until you’re seated at your table. The bar area is more “dive” than restaurant..

    One of the best steak houses I've ever been to. You can do no wrong if you have the mutton chop, mashed potatoes and a glass of your favorite red wine. This will suffice for two patrons.

    Def lives up to the hype! Super old school & "manly" interior. Steak definitely lives up to its name...but I would personally ask them to hold the salt if you're not too keen on salt like me!

    Cool spot with a lot of history! Would probably skip unless you plan on ordering the mutton, which was great and is what they’re known for.

    What's not to like about this jewel? Bartenders that are second to none, great food and the most interesting patrons. But the piece de resistance is the Hot Fudge Sundae. At a Steakhouse? YES!!

    If you go for the porterhouse (for 2) order it one grade less cooked than you would otherwise; the filet side will be a little rawer than that, but the much larger t-bone side will come out just right

    This place has an amazing mutton chop that distinguishes it from most classic steakhouses. The atmosphere can be hit or miss depending on which of the many rooms you're in. One of my faves.

    Dinner for four? Get two orders of bacon, a porterhouse for two, mutton chop, burger with cheddar, mashed potatoes, and creamed spinach. Scientific proportions made to make the entire table happy.

    Historic place - ask about the pipes on the wall. Has become a bit pricey but great place for a business lunch. Our servers were attentive and sensitive to needs if our table.
