The best steaks ever, you could, and we did to prove it, cut them with a spoon. The atmosphere was great, wait staff excellent and the puddings followed suit. When we go back to New York we will go back for another try.

Outstanding service and very welcoming restaurant. The steak was very tasty and well prepared. Ideal setting either before or after a Knicks or Rangers game.

We booked keens in advance of our travel to NY. We ordered chateaubriand and it was absolutely cooked to perfection. We had great seats, the ambience was spot on and the service fabulous. If you love steak, you have to visit Keens.

I had a business dinner, hence I did not wanted to give the filet mignon back but it was totally overcooked and the same was the case with the spring vegetables. I clearly will avoid this steakhouse.

if your kids eat steak it should be fine.
I've dined here before but am visiting NY on their first trip to NY in late May and thought we'd have our first meal at the bar. I've looked at the online menu and was wondering if there is more, am thinking of my mother who likes her salads. I know you've got a couple listed but are there any other pub menu items not listed? Thanks in advance.
