Pre-booked ended up at the worst table in the house. Service and food were very average. Won’t be back.

Service slow, staff didn't know what the $55 set menu included, specific cocktail we had which has a balloon on top, the waitress could not do, and made that comment, sorry I'll try again, I can never do this. Service was slow and took sometime to order and get our drinks. Though it's a funky cool place, for the price of drinks, it needs to be slicker! Guy behind the bar, physically came up to our table to ask about our drink choice which was a nice gesture, thankyou.

Thank you for making my partners birthday night so special! A huge thanks to Caitlyn for arranging a table in a private area with an amazing view of parramatta to enjoy for our night. Was certainly a wow factor, and we can’t thank you all enough! We will remember this forever!

Service terrible. 40 minutes for our cocktails in a 2 hour sitting. Had a band on and told a lie that we couldn’t dance because covid when no covid dance restrictions are on. Ordered 3 cheese and 3 meat platter and had to chase them up because only meats came out. And then told we only had 30 minutes remaining so I said you bloody get a hurry on our cocktail order.

We had a great time.
My friend and I are both vegan and we checked the menu before booking to ensure there were some canapé options for us. On the open table app we used to book, the menu included tofu puffs and a watermelon with vegan feta option as well as olives and bread. When we got there the menu was different and there was no vegan option except for bread and olives. The bread ($9) was honestly a bit stale and didn’t come toasted or warm or anything. Was a bit disappointing considering we tried to prepare in advance. The cocktails and service was great - however when we pointed out the menu was different and no longer had options for us, there was no attempt to find us an alternative.

Went there with friends on a Sunday evening. It was quite. View was as good as you can get from a 26th floor. Staff was very polite and helpful and ready to help you with their recommendations for the drinks.

Food menu was limited

The venue is like You’re in New York. Very disappointed in the food choices and very very expensive- it’s a shame this is not a restaurant and the music got too loud as the night progressed albeit they did put it down but it didn’t last. The cheese platter was great but overall the food is very expensive.

Fantastic space and atmosphere. You very quickly forget your in parramatta as it has such a city feel.
Food is outstanding, simple but very tasty, fresh and beautifully presented. Drinks are delicious and the service is brilliant. The staff are very knowledgeable and can offer great recommendations with a Lengthy review. Overall though, it does come with a high price tag which is something to consider.

Took along time to be served from the time we got there, once ordered it took along time to receive drinks and platter. Platter size was underwhelming when compared to price.

Had a great evening @ Nick & Nora’s.
From the Booking to the Bill was pretty much seamless, we weren’t sure what to order so the waiters gave their suggestions which turned out to be on point for our needs.
Great place to take ur partner for a night out that’s without the hassle of the city (if you live out west)

We had a great night to celebrate my husband's birthday. Cocktails were 5 out of 5 for sure! We had the "feed me" food option which was disappointing in its lack of variety. Lots of fried, little balls with same,same texture and appearance. Service was pretty good but we had to ask, meaning that we were not approached at any time. Definitely would come back but order food differently.

Although they weren’t that busy venue seemed under staffed, drinks took a long time to prepare and service was patchy. Come here if you like staring at parramatta for a while.

I really like the bar but the service was quite bad on our night out. The drinks took ages to make and it took the staff half an hour to discover that a bottle of champagne we ordered wasn't available. Still a cool place to go though and would still recommend as they have some delicious drinks.

It took 50 minutes to not receive a non-menu cocktail. We had a dinner reservations and had to leave. It was disheartening as we discussed the cocktail with the bar tender (he advised it was an easy drink to make) and wait staff staff checked in twice.

The floor manager wasn’t very welcoming. She was more focused on check in at NSW than welcoming costumers, watched a few people coming in and she did exactly like the same and the customers did have a surprised look.
I don’t remember feeling like that before, I always come and bring friends here & never felt unwelcome

Lucky enough the waitress were super friendly, the staff & the bar tenders great service
It’s just the first of contact wasn’t a great experience and that’s the most important

Ambience would be improved with less techno music and something more jazzy to match decor. Service was very slow & was hard to get the attention of wait staff - they were not clear on their own menus of drinks at times. However a lovely bar in Paramatta well worth the visit for great quality champagne and cocktails.

Service is too slow despite not being very busy. Food is okay - we have seven plates served to us from the 'Feed Me' menu - we only liked two out of seven - lamb croquettes are tough and crumbly, they served another lamb and still the same. However, the mushroom arancini and the prawns are really good. Too expensive for the food quality - I guess because of the good city views from the bar.
