Keep is an excellent restaurant and we go often when in Jenkintown. The food is fresh and creative. And the service is responsive.

This is THE gem of Jenkintown. This suburban BYO can go head to head with the best downtown Philly restaurants.

From start to finish our dinner was amazing! This was our second visit and it was as good as the first time! The chef is incredibly creative delivering sumptuous food beautifully presented in a beautiful environment. We sampled the cheese plate, Brussels sprouts, pickles and Lola Rosa salad. My monkfish was sweet and tender. My husband’s salmon was perfectly cooked. The potato tart accompaniment was stellar! We enjoyed the apple tart tatin with a cheddar crisp for dessert. The service is caring, attentive and understated. We will happily go back!

I was so glad to finally get to Keep. The food was excellent, as was the quality of the ingredients, the taste, the creativity and the presentation. It's always great to go to BYOB's, too. This way you get to play with the food and wine pairings, which is always fun. Great job and can't wait to go back!

Brunch was fantastic! The Bacon Maple Donut was smokey and perfectly sweet. Enjoyed the burger and potatoes along with everything else. Looking forward to going back.

We've been coming here since it opened and can't recommend it enough. City dining without having to drive downtown -- love it!

Love this BYO. The food is great with a lot of Vegan Options. Melody is very warm and friendly and actually remembered where we sat the last time we were there. I loved the Lentil Fritters and the Salmon was very good with the Potato Tart that everyone loves. My Partner, who is Vegan, loved the Chickpea Tofu dish. It is a bit of a trip for us but we think we will be going more often because it offers us everything we could want in a restaurant.

This was our second visit. The food and service was excellent. They were also mindful of my wife's food allergies and recommended dishes that would not cause problems. We plan to go back more often.

The food was below average-at-best bad appetizer. Pasta oily, fish dish was okay desert subpar. . Took about two and a half hours for the meal given ridiculously slow service. On a slow night. The very good wine I brought was wasted with this meal.

This was very pleasant experience. My wife and I went for pre-Valentine Day dinner. Small, cute setting. Our server Michael was very helpful. Cheese and charcuterie board for two well done. My wife had trout and I had a bolognese dish. Both were great. We are recommending Keep to friends and family.

We eat out too much, our waistline shows it, we are true foodies. Servers really experienced, sophisticated. Keep is a keeper! The food was so tasty, different flavors that stood out but blended well! Ramp dust on my trout was magical! Who knew!

Keep is a French bistro style restaurant with excellent food. Each dish was cooked and presented with care. Everything was delicious. The salmon was very rare which was fine by us. The vegetarian cassoulet was flavorful with the only green we had all night. The bolognese was all meat with homemade noodles and we loved the orange cake with coconut cream.

Go, you will not be disappointed. We've been here 3 times, and every time we get something new since the menu is always changing. My husband is hard to please and we will absolutely be back. Love that this place is casual, BYOB, and has an inventive menu. Park on one of the streets that intersect 611 on the opposite side from KEEP for free.

We have dined here many times and have always enjoyed our meals. The owners are wonderful and they take a personal interest in their customers. The menu changes periodically which is also a plus. It’s relatively quiet which makes for a very relaxing dining experience. We are delighted to have this restaurant in Jenkintown.

This is a nice little restaurant in Jenkintown with very good food and friendly staff.
It is nice to have a good chef in Jenkintown. We had Salmon and a Pasta dish, both very nicely prepared.
Nice glassware for the wine - Sorry that we haven't been there sooner.

Our dinner was very good. We enjoyed the creative use of ingredients and lots of vegetarian options. The "small plate" theme is especially pleasant because there were so many things we were interested in trying. Each component of each dish was obviously thought out and together made a delicious experience. My husband was only slightly less enthusiastic about his choices, otherwise our rating would have been even higher.

I cannot say enough about Keep! I am ecstatic that such a delicious, modern yet classic, foodie restaurant has come to our town. I eat here as often as i can find a babysitter. I am vegan and my husband is a carnivore- we are both completely satisfied with the menu. Highly recommend

The meal was so good that I'm writing the review and we are still here. Small plates, so you can share taste. I absolutely loved the squash soup and I don't usually like it. We will definitely be back.

I brought my wife to Keep as a thank you for everything that she does over the holidays. Only our second visit, but certainly not our last!
We took advantage of a couple of the night’s specials: wild mushrooms (over a white sweet potato purée I think), and tortellini en crudo. Both were excellent.
For our entrees, my wife had the salmon and I had the trout. She’s kind of a salmon aficionado, and thoroughly enjoyed hers. But that didn’t keep her from stealing a few bites of my trout.
