    I ordered the famous lobster roll. It was OK but there was no WOW factor to it. I don't think I would order it again especially for its price - $30. I was expecting more for that price. Overall, ambience is really great, perfect place for a nice meal and drinks with workmates and friends.

    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.

    Gorgeous rooftop space for drinks and some nibbles. Decent happy hour until 7pm which was great as most of my friends don’t get out of work till 6pm so we usually can’t make the earlier happy hours around. Excellent table service, our waitress was very very attentive, helpful and efficient. Lovely place whether you attend in bigger group (I had 10 and had booked in advance so we got a lovely long table in the back corner) or for a date or small catch up with friends.

    Great place for a few drinks and some snacks or food. Lovely atmosphere and very well lit with natural lighting in summer. Decent happy hour too.

    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.

    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.

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.
