    Rib eye was very tender and tasty. It was also generously served.

    My favorite steakhouse in NYC. Expensive but it's ok for special occasions.I usually get the Filet mignon,it's amazing. They cook it perfectly so it's tender and juicy. The service here is excellent.

    Whatever you do, order the mutton (okay, it's actually lamb) chops. Excellent!

    Old school NY Steakhouse. Dark, wood interior, the usual sides, very good steaks. Great for business meetings.

    Knowledgeable staff slinging epic whisky list. And then there's mutton. What's not to like?

    Porterhouse para 2! Delicisi

  • Claire J S.

    gargantuan bone-in prime rib, and the sheer glory that is the Keens mutton chop (actually a saddle of lamb)

    Great dry aged porterhouse!

    Get the Mutton, Prime Rib, or Porterhouse with the wedge salad and creamed spinach. I recommend getting it all and sharing!

    I was really looking forward to finally eating at Keens. Unfortunately, the first might just be my last time. The Porterhouse had a really funky smell (old wet towel). The sides were just decent.

    Diana S · February 21
  • Melissa C.

    Get the sautéed mushrooms and creamed spinach as sides. Delicious.

    Classic steakhouse steeped in history. Good for business lunches and romantic dinners. Look for the Lincoln memorabilia!

    Very charming authentic American ambiance with unforgettable juicy steaks

    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

    Alejandro Hoyo · January 19

    AmaZing!!! It had that untouched decor with the smoking pipes lining the ceiling. The sides were amazing no matter the choice. Porterhouse for 2 was perfectly cooked. Service was great so was desert

    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 cocktails and better steak, make this a restaurant to add to your list. Top-end Steaks and amazing Lobster tail. The food was terrific and the staff was wonderful.

    The ambience is nice with it's low celiings. Food is delicious, portions more than generous. Try the Mutton Chop, the Filet Mignon, the Creamed Spinach, Mashed potatoes and Creme Brûlée for dessert.

  • Allie P.

    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!

    The burger (only available in the pub room on weekdays) is very juicy and flavorful. Pairs well with a side of the thick-cut smoked bacon.

    Mutton Chop was massive and delish! Can't go wrong with the filet and the Yukon mashed were soooo good! Sit at the bar to eat if u like. Those guys rock!

    Se requiere reservación. Si no hay mesa pida el bar, es otro ambiente pero le dan de cenar. El sea bass con espinacas buenísimo. Los camarones salteados excelentes. La carne en general muy buena.

    Even the Thick Bacon Appetizer is good enough for a whole meal.Worth the 1 hours wait.

    Mutton chop at the bar (pub-sized). Ask for it rare. Best piece of meat in Manhattan.

    Great grill burger on the bar!

  • Irfun B.

    Mutton chop! Pretty good and comes with mint jelly, sweet balance for lamb taste. Not the best sirloin though comparing Sparks!

    Irfun B · October 20, 2014
  • Tony X.

    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.

    My favorite steak house in NYC

    For a meal you won’t soon forget, chow down on a charred T-Bone Steak or a King Cut Prime Rib accompanied by a side of Sautéed Mushroom and Hand-Cut Fries
