    Super good service, really personable approach which made us feel special. Was my girlfriends birthday and it was lovely to see how the staff interacted with her. Drinks were sublime with 5 star service, as well as a 5 star menu. Would 100% recommend to anyone who is interested

    The moment you step inside your senses are wakened . The decor and music suggests an exciting evening is ahead- and it was ! The bar took my breath away. The mixologists were magic to watch; our eyes were feasting on everything that went on around us. Our dry martini’s would have been absolutely perfect if they had our preferred vodka available. My only criticism was the cost of the canapés, two of which were delectable with one (based on beetroot) very flat. Having said that, I have today started to organise a group of 10 to go back in February. This bar should be on any discerning person’s “must go there”list.

    it shocked me that in a COVID world there was no social distancing between different groups, despite plenty of free tables. we felt very uncomfortable be sat at a high table with 2 other sets of couples we didn't know, shoulder to shoulder.

    Nick and Nora’s staff are probably the rudest and idiotic bunch of the bars around the Collins street area. The host woman is patronising and she thinks she owns the place. Even when clear instructions from head office has been communicated. The wait staff make mistakes and the food is over priced. I’ve been there 3 times and I won’t return.

    Nice venue for a date night. Service, bar food and cocktails all great but serving sizes for food and drink were not generous at all. 2 sips of our cocktails and you are done so we swapped over to bottled wine. Two of us spent $443 which in hindsight would have been better spent at a nice restaurant.

    Excellent service from the moment you walk in the doors of this lovely establishment. Beautiful ambience and amazing array of cocktails and drinks. The food is a bit pricey but the quality and care that goes into making these delectable morsels makes it worthwhile. I have been here twice now and it is my new 'go to' place for cocktails in Melbourne. Well done.

    Great place for drinks and snack bites but not for a filling meal. The cocktail list is extensive and amazing! Service was fantastic though at times the wait for our server and drinks was a bit longer than I would have expected. The fit out is fabulous, ambience great and I can't wait to go back again for more drinkies!!!

    Nice place but a little like a stage production and service seemed forced and fake. Honestly I was expecting a better martini but overall the cocktails and interior is fancy and instagramable if that’s your thing.

    We had a lovely evening celebrating my daughter’s birthday. We had a new lady waiting on us for the last 15mins who unfortunately passed an inappropriate, personal comment about us to another staff member. This certainly was unprofessional & spoiled what had been a lovely experience until then.

    Seated in a waiting area which wasn't clear from the booking, and air con was way too cold. Took a while for drinks to be ordered and delivered, also no one bothered to take our food order so we booked elsewhere while seated, second place ended up being great luckily!

    The allocated seating is not the greatest idea, felt like I had to shout over the table to get my conversations across, and you can hear other people’s conversations right next to you. Sitting really close to other people on the table, just felt like an invasion of privacy. The long tables are no good, because when one person moves on the table you can feel the vibration. I reckon there should be smaller set tables so that two or three people can have their privacy and their space without constantly looking over each other’s shoulder, as it was quite tiring. Apart from that drinks was good, service was good.
