Australian | Upper West Side, Manhattan

This was our third time at Burke & Wills. We planned to arrive a half hour early for the reservation so we could have a cocktail upstairs at MCC. The civilized way to start an evening. (My husband and I arrived first and the host said we had to wait for our full party before being escorted upstairs, this policy was new to us, but it was quickly resolved). The waitress recommended cocktails to each of our tastes and she nailed it. The cocktails were amazing. At dinner, the branzino and hanger steak were big hits. We knew from past experience (and the appetites of our young friends) to order small plates to supplement the large plates. The tasty beef tartar was hidden under a pile of perfect golden potato chips. The oysters were good (although, to be honest, not the very best I have ever had). The Shishito peppers had the right mix of hot - not too much. For dessert, the Affogato is fantastic especially with the walnut liquor, although note; it is not a dessert that is easy to share. ( I ask for the espresso to be de-caf - my own paranoia ). The bread pudding, also delicious, was served as a slice (not in a ramekin) so easily shareable. We left happy and satisfied, vowing to return. More

Go for the buffalo cauliflower. somehow, that cauliflower is transformed into a piquant, addictive item. Love the low-key atmosphere. Not a ton of dishes for a vegetarian. Fried chicken sandwich is excellent. The cavetelli very good. Avocado toast garnished like a child's toy - tomatoes and radishes stuck into it on a grid. The bar is appealing and the service is super attentive. Very quiet at lunch. More

Service was generally efficient but unenthusiastic. They could have sold at least one more glass of wine, had they asked if anyone wanted a refill. On a hot evening, the ac was not up to par. The food, however, was good and merits another visit. If the service and ac are not in better shape, the next visit will probably be the last. More

After I was seated, she saw that there was a larger table available, and she offered that one to me instead, since it was during a period when the restaurant was less busy. I hadn't asked for the larger table, but I appreciated her suggestion and my friend and I were more comfortable with the extra space. The food was delicious.

Simply grilled items include quail and squab, rarely seen on menus. The squab was deliciously juicy and medium rare as it should be. The room is roomy and casual and the bar looks terrific, for meals as well as just drinks. This place is what you want in your neighborhood, but also well worth traveling to. More

Good food, festive ambiance. Had a very good chicken in mole sauce, good service, everyone is very nice. Drinks took a little while to arrive. Frozen margaritas in tall blue-rimmed glasses are festive. I have tasted better (I don't think the lime juice compares with fresh squeezed). Mariachi band played (Besa Me), and while they were on break, a pianist and an absolutely wonderful female operasinger treated us to a few songs (Porgy and Bess?). More

I met an old friend for a long and leisurely lunch on a Thursday afternoon. The food was great. A burger for my friend and a chicken club pita for me. But each was prepared with care and skill. They were each a real meal and an excellent meal. Service was wonderful. Espresso was great. The bar is superior. It's a real neighborhood gem. More

The best part were the risotto croquettes and the chocolate desert. The only thing I wasn’t pleased with was the attitude of the hostesses. More

This was our third time at Burke & Wills. We planned to arrive a half hour early for the reservation so we could have a cocktail upstairs at MCC. The civilized way to start an evening. (My husband and I arrived first and the host said we had to wait for our full party before being escorted upstairs, this policy was new to us, but it was quickly resolved). The waitress recommended cocktails to each of our tastes and she nailed it. The cocktails were amazing. At dinner, the branzino and hanger steak were big hits. We knew from past experience (and the appetites of our young friends) to order small plates to supplement the large plates. The tasty beef tartar was hidden under a pile of perfect golden potato chips. The oysters were good (although, to be honest, not the very best I have ever had). The Shishito peppers had the right mix of hot - not too much. For dessert, the Affogato is fantastic especially with the walnut liquor, although note; it is not a dessert that is easy to share. ( I ask for the espresso to be de-caf - my own paranoia ). The bread pudding, also delicious, was served as a slice (not in a ramekin) so easily shareable. We left happy and satisfied, vowing to return. More

Discover Upper West Side

Although it was home to Seinfeld and features other cultural cornerstones like the Lincoln Center, the “Upper Best Side” has long been passed over for other cooler neighborhood when it comes to the food scene. It’s no longer an afterthought, as some of the city’s most exciting new eaters have set up shop above 59th Street, creating more attention for the decades-old uptown institutions. Jewish fare like deli sandwiches and challah French toast are staples, but now you can also find the city’s best dan dan noodles. Grab a cheap Gotham hot dog, class it up with easy and reliable French, and save room for dessert at one of the countless cafes. Just remember to stay intellectually hungry—some of the city’s best museums are right nearby.
