    Great atmosphere, so-so food

    I also took my husband to Keens for his birthday and though we loved the atmosphere and the history of the place, we were disappointed with the food. He had the mutton chop and I had the prime rib and neither was outstanding. I must say I've had much better for a lot less. As for the creamed spinach, I agree with a previous reviewer that the portion was stingy. If you want to see the place, fine, but if you go for the steak you'll be better off elsewhere.

    Excellent meat!

    Took my husband to Keen's for his birthday. He had the caesar salad which was good. I had the mutton chop and he had the T-bone. Both were PERFECTLY cooked - medium-rare and absolutely delicious. He had a baked potato and I tried the creamed spinach. There was actually no need to order sides as we could barely finish the entree. It is really a lot of meat! Service was excellent. Great atmosphere - very friendly staff. Drinks are pretty strong too. We had coffee and shared the chocolate cake for desert - it tasted exactly as you would want it to taste. Bill for 2 was about $150 + tip. We would definitely return.

    Very tender and delicious steak

    This place been around since 1880s. The history is as long as Macy's department store. The dinner menu prices is quite expensive since the steak does not come with any side dishes, but it's the best steak I had and always very consistent. I had Filet Mignon with au poivre sauce and friend with Age primed New York Sirlion. A side dish of wild sauteed mushrooms. Both steaks were very tender and has a lot of flavor, goes very well with side of sauteed mushrooms.

    Consistently Great Steaks

    My husband and I have eaten at the restaurant numerous times and Keen's consistently has wonderful steaks. We have frequented other top steak houses in the city and country and find that these restaurants always have their "off nights". The only disappointment is the price increase. It used to be a more reasonable place to get a steak in NYC but now the filet is $45.00 (no side dishes). Beware that the menu on this site does not reflect the new prices.

    Great dinner experience!

    I went there for an early dinner with my friend this Saturday. One of the best parts of the evening was the super-friendly and attentive waitstaff (very differnt experience from previous reviewers). The head waiter gave us useful tips (which wine to chose, which oysters etc.), and stopped by once the main dishes were served. Another waiter was there to fill up the water glasses, get us ketchup and any other things we needed. My friend loved his steak! Maybe a little less than the one from Lugers, but the atmosphere and the waiters are by far better at Keens. I am vegetarian and this was the first steak place that did not make me feel like an idiot (the tough fate if a vegi is friend with a steak lover). Don't get me wrong: a steak place is about great steak, but having options (that are edible) for those that are not beef-lovers is great! Also, I very much liked the crudites (carrots, olives, etc) with blue cheese that they served for every table. Definitely will go back!

    Ok Steak, Poor Service

    Got the porterhouse for 2 medium rare. The flavor and the overall texture of the steak was decent although I have seen much better marbelization and there were a few small fatty pockets in the filet. The creamed spinach was ok, but the portion was a tad stingy for a steakhouse. The atmosphere was a bit rustic for my tastes (though not a big deal if the steak were truly exceptional). The biggest flaw for me was the service. We were ignored for long periods of time and when the steak was brought to the table, the waiter didn't bother to serve the steak at all, which is highly uncommon in upscale steakhouses. Overall, I would not recommend this restaurant. There are better steak experiences to be had in new york.

    Best Hunk o' Meat Ever

    I am a meat lover and have been to many steakhouses. Got the rare T bone (Porterhouse with smaller fillet). It was the best steak I have ever had. Almost a shame because I can never replicate that in my backyard. The creamed spinach was also perfect.
