Attractive and interesting looking restaurant with a very cool bar upstairs, Cricket Club, for which one needs a reservation usually. However, the host makes sure to accommodate diners so that they can experience the Cricket Club pre or after dinner. Food is good as is service. Loved it and will return. I had been to the bar once before but this is the first time I have dined here.

The Beef Tartare and Crispy Brussel Sprouts were very yummy. Would highly recommend. The Branzino was tasty; however, a small thing, the scallion topper was hard to eat as you could not cut it with the fish knive and was very difficult to chew. The Kangaroo Burger was a nice treat.

My boyfriend and I went to Burke & Wills to celebrate our third anniversary and had a wonderful experience. The service was excellent. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive, unpretentious, and ever so friendly! We began our meal with complimentary prosecco and we were also comp-ed for a small plate. The oysters were good and we both enjoyed our entrees (the duck and the butternut squash risotto). I would recommend Burke & Wills to anyone looking for lovely ambiance, great food, and excellent cocktails. I'd also like to thank Burke & Wills for making our anniversary so special, we'll definitely be coming back!

This was my first time at Burke and Wills and I will definitely go back again. If you're looking to have a quiet dinner or at least someplace where you can hear the person you're with, this place is ideal. Don't be put off by the very narrow and 'lively' bar/passageway that leads to the back dining room...you can't hear it once you're in the dining area. The food was great - brussels sprouts side is a must. The short ribs and the duck main courses were excellent. The only negative was the service. I think there was only one waitperson for the entire room so we had to keep signaling to get her attention. She did apologize for the delay so that was a plus!

Food was cold. I came two years ago and the food was excellent. So good we came back the next week. This time the food was cold. Did you change chefs?

The food was excellent, my compliments to the chef. The presentation, aroma and flavor blended so well, I would recommend the roasted salmon with carrot pâté. Unfortunately, the service lacked in attentiveness. The overall service experience is what would prevent me from ever returning, as the server had made a mistake with our bill and did not resolve the mistake. Hopefully for the next person, both mediums will balance and create a positive dining experience.

Great restaurant and cocktail bar with the added bonus of having the Manhattan Cricket Club speakeasy bar upstairs. The butternut squash risotto and the branzino were great and the service from Mark our waiter was excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place to have dinner or cocktails on the Upper West side

I went to Burke and Wills with 4 other friends. We all agreed it was one of the most enjoyable meals/experiences we have had in a very longtime. The food was magic, the setting outstanding and the service world class. Could not recommend this venue highly enough!
