They have created an atmosphere with a warm ambiance inviting you to experience its unique bar program and sophisticated spin on American regional cuisine using only the freshest ingredients.

This is a great seafood restaurant in White Plains. I had a delicious meal. The salmon fish tacos were delicious and the grilled shrimp. Be careful parking is a challenge and you need to feed the meters until 9pm which is annoying. Both my friend and I got $25 tickets when we got out because the signs are not very clear.

The food is very good. The restaurant is attractive. The noise level is pretty awful. There was a large table of people and they drowned out the room the entire time. It was hard to carry on a conversation with my husband. Perhaps a back room could be given to a group next time so that all the parties might enjoy themselves equally.

The gentleman that gave us the food was extremely rude, it was also very noisy. Food wasn’t so great.

Overall, the experience was okay. The interior of the restaurant is beautiful and peaceful. However, the food and service was subpar. We had reservations at 8 pm and didn’t receive our appetizer until 9 pm, even though the restaurant was not busy. The oyster appetizer was pretty good but the main meal was lacking in flavor and quality. I ordered the seafood risotto, and the shrimp and squid were rubbery and bland unfortunately. For a 4.6 star restaurant, I’m just surprised we were served baby shrimp... I would maybe give this restaurant another try but most likely not.

Our party of 3 LOVE raw bar and went to Kee in anticipation of some awesome oysters, clams, lobster, crab etc. We were not disappointed.
Our very attentive and patient waiter, Jay, took his time explaining the menu, offering suggestions and keeping on top of drinks. We were seated in the lovely back room. Food was absolutely fresh, delish, plentiful and impressive.
Apps to dessert - just fantastic.

We enjoyed our dining experience tremendously. The food was delicious!!! The only thing i would say is to tell the customer that the martini comes with blue cheese olives! I cant eat that but lesson learned for me to always ask! We will be back for sure. It is rare to find a place where the food is so good! I would however possibly have some security walking around outside b/c the neighborhood can get sketchy later while walking to the parking lot.

Not much on the menu that you can choose and not be fully pleased with it. The classy but casual ambience and friendly, professional service elevate the whole experience to another level. Possibly the best seafood restaurant in Westchester .

Food was very good but was not impressed with COVID safety protocols. My husband and I eat out often so we are familiar with how other restaurants are working these days. Over half of the employees did not have their masks on correctly, which was pretty shocking.... including a guy who delivered our appetizer who had his mask well below his nose. A couple was seated next to us definitely less than 6 feet away while we were halfway through our meal. Luckily our table was on an end so I was able to move it over. I don't think I am overly neurotic, since I have been indoor dining many times this past year, but this felt like they were blatantly disregarding all protocols. For that reason, I will not be back here.

Kee Oyster House is normally closed on Sundays but was opened for Valentine's Day this year. So me, my boyfriend, sister and brother in law went for dinner and it was a wonderful experience.

Drinks--great selection of wines and cocktails. I had a bourbon cocktail which was delicious. A couple at the opposite table had about 4 rounds of a delicious looking chocolate martini, which I'll have to try next time.

Food: For appetizers we had the grilled oysters which were fresh, juicy, and amazing. Mussels with sausage--great serving size--my boyfriend was full and couldn't even eat his entree (had to take it to go). Blackened tuna, veal chop, and pasta were all cooked perfectly.

Service/Ambiance: Great waiter, very attentive and personable. Decor looked wonderful.

Can't wait to go back!

MUZAK - instead of music was loud and inappropriate for dinner or ANY occasion - that was the first part of a most awful experience.
They were written up in a Westchester Magazine article "Where Foodies Eat in Westchester" we had never heard of it and were excited to go. I ordered a beet and bean appetizer - totally tasteless - beets were too cold - not enough green beans. But the entrees were the worst. The risotto must have been precooked. Total mush. Tiny shrimp - overcooked. My husbands steak was fair at best. The mashed potatoes tasted reheated as well and the creamed spinach was gross. My husband didn't have food pi=oisoning but was sick to his stomach later that evening. I never write reviews but sadly needed to write this one in the hopes they will get on top of their game. In a time where restaurants are struggling I truly hesitate to do so - but this was awful.

Fantastic oysters! So fresh and a great selection! We had the seafood tower and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc-excellent! We also had the key lime tart and the apple cobbler-both were delicious. We will definitely return to try more of their menu.
It’s an attractive place and paring is so convenient. It was my birthday and the waiter presented my dessert with a candle and they sang Happy Birthday-very nice touch!
