    The food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the burgers. Atmosphere was lovely. However, the music did get very loud after 7:00pm and the staff refused to turn down the music.

    Light and bright space, good food and friendly service. Although the staff were a little slow to notice us as we were in the corner, they were very helpful once we got their attention.

    A bar with separate dining area, great music adds to the ambience. Cocktails are quite nice with quite a bit of variety.

    Great service as we were able to pre order - it was a work lunch- and the food arrived as we were all seated. It was great..

    Very small lobster roll. Should be worth half the price.

    Great space, little bit on the pricy side for the food selection and quantity you receive. The atmosphere more than makes up for it and the cocktail menu is lit.

    Menu is fairly simple (read: limited) but what they serve is really good. Hard to go wrong here! Atmosphere is great for an outing with friends or workmates.

    Mushroom burger is great, not enough of these in Sydney. $20 burger + beer deal is great

    Service was really slow, we were sat in a far corner which perhaps didn't help. They got our orders wrong, which resulted in the bill being wrong, which we had to work out for ourselves rather than them helping us- they were quick to refund once we worked out where the overpay was. The food was great, but the service could definitely be improved upon

About the restaurant

The CBD's hottest watering hole

A rooftop hideaway located on York St, high above the hustle of Sydney’s CBD - that's The Rook.

This cosily lit establishment is always abuzz with thirsty city-goers hankering for a well deserved bev. The drinks list is fab, and the menu is plush with freshly caught lobsters, gourmet burgers and a range of bar bites.

Fast becoming the watering hole for city-dwellers and gin aficionados alike, The Rook is a bar that tries not to take itself too seriously.

Best dish: lone ranger burger with pulled spiced brisket, slaw & corn.
