My wife and I were in New York for a few days and wanted a nice steak restaurant to visit. I jumped on trip advisor and found this place. Although this place is a little expensive, I was very impressed with the atmosphere and food. To this date, this was the best steak I have ever had. (NY strip medium... More

Olde World atmosphere and great service. Food was served very quickly, sides and steaks were excellent. Desserts are huge and best for sharing! Not a great wine choice at reasonable prices, but good beer selection on tap.

On a whim, we decided to try and squeeze in a steak restaurant during our visit to NY. Keens being #1 we were 'keen' to try there. Fully booked online we were able to secure a table by calling through. On arrival our table wasn't yet ready so started off with some cocktails in the bar. Both were potent! Great... More

We had a reservation for 4 and we were superpleased. We sat in one of the upstairs dining rooms. We went familystyle and ordered a Porterhouse Steak for 3 which was enough for the 4 of us. Perfectly prepared. Great redwine from California 'Pied a terre'.

We finally tried Keens after reading all the reviews on tripadvisor, but I have to say that both my husband and I were quite disappointed and won't be planning a return trip. On the positive side, the steak was very good - we shared a porterhouse, and it was cooked well and tasted very nice. However, the aim of the... More

There are many steak houses in New York City but I'd highly recommend going to Keen's. Myself and my partner both had steaks and both agreed that they were the best steaks that we'd ever eaten. The vibe and atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely, very traditional and cosy. The service couldn't be faulted and the food was cooked to... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
