I'm from Oregon. We've got plenty of good angus, etc. out here. I was worried about paying a multiplier for Manhattan steaks and asked around (20+locals). The best recommendation I received was for Keens. Never heard of it. Went expecting a lot, and left feeling I received more. The place itself is warm and inviting. I got a nice fireplace-side table (lucky). Bar was nice too. The meal itself catupults all else. I was little harsh (3.5) on the service b/c I am accustom to Oregon-friendly [over-attentive] staff, but I couldn't have hoped for a better place to celebrate [undercover] my 40th. I had the filet and it looked like a chateau for one . . . you won't be dis . . .

Amazing place for a steak - scotch and wine lists are amazing. Service was ok - it seemed a hassle for the waiter to take care of us.

Don't believe the hype. It's not even that Keens can't begin to compete with Luger's or Sparks. This place is not even as good as Old Homestead or other mediocre steak places. The portions are tiny. A 12-ounce, overcooked, sirloin at a New York steakhouse is a joke. The famous mutton seems big, but is mostly fat and bone. There is very little meat to go around. They have the standard appetizers and desserts. The shrimp cocktail and tomato and onion salad are ok, so is the apple pie. But none of this makes up for the steaks or the inattentive service

I had thought of Keens as a slightly tired neighborhood spot that had seen better days. I could not have been more wrong. This is a terrific spot offering a wonderful, warm and very cozy atmosphere. It has a small but friendly bar, a nice pub dining area for lighter fare and the main dining room which is warmly lit and furnished with the house pipes hanging on the ceiling. The food is standard steakhouse fare with terrific red meat for lusty appetites. The wine list is extensive and offers some real bargins amoung the many offerings. It is a pricey but memorable meal., a cut above its many competitors.

That's right, hanging cigar pipes line the ceiling in this place. Great steak!

We went there last week for dinner. The steaks were very tasty. I ordered the T-Bone medium rare. It came out just the way I wanted it. The salad was overpriced by far. The side dishes are small - very hard to share. The service was very good. No problem with the staff. Nice place to eat.

Simply the "best" steakhouse in Manhattan. I have been to them all, including PL's in BK, and this one still stands above the rest, for the year of '04. The filet mignon cuts are simply fatter, juicier and tastier than the competition and downright mouthwatering! The legendary mutton is truly a MUST experience. Nice selection of wines as well... Go tonight. Get stuffed!
