Booked three weeks in advance only to be told that no table was reserved. Was directed to seating for a group that cancelled in front of us then later told that the table was meant for us. When booking, no indication stating that you had to note that you wanted to be sat inside. Didn't accomodate for freezing weather (no cover for outside). However, food looks exactly how it was advertised.

Came here for my birthday with 2 friends. Service was good, food was not bad, however we all had to send back the hot drinks as when we got them they were cold. 2nd time round was better.

Very busy and pretty place. glad we booked. We were seated enough for 2 people , and they only had enough cutlery for 2 of us , and only 1 napkin to share .

Might try it again

We were drawn to the Parramatta cafe due to its beautiful Instagram photos however we were overall quite disappointed. The cafe has beautiful decorations but the overall look of the cafe is let down greatly by the lack of uniform of the staff. The two female wait staff were simply wearing gym tights and hoodies with no cafe logo or anything to indicate that they were even staff (e.g. no aprons). They were quite distant and I don't recall seeing any of them smile which made the service seem cold. You'd think that if the company was putting so much effort into making their cafe's pretty they'd put some effort into completing the look by giving their staff awesome uniforms (or just any uniforms to begin with). Now, the food.. the food is "pretty" but pretty does not equal tasty food. My friend got the green french toast and every item on the plate had the same soft squishy texture. No contrast in flavour or textures - just sweet sludge. I got a burger which was standard and my other friend got the barramundi. The prices are good and that's about the only positive. You can get some nice photos against the floral walls but you'd be better off going to the Grounds of Alexandria if you're just after photos for the 'gram.

Delicious food that looks insta worthy. Overall, service is alright. Despite making a reservation they had initially sat us at a really weird seating arrangement but they found us an alternative after a little fuss. Other than that, food was amazing and can’t really fault it.

Great food but my opentable reservation did not go through to their system so when we showed up they did not have a table for us and we had to wait. When we sat down we were not given any menus and continually had to get up to ask the staff to serve us.

Social Hideout is a extremely nice and aesthetic restaurant serving delightful foods. However, my only concern is the price, I believe that Social Hideout might not be worth the amount of money being paid for meals. When considering the burgers they taste quite decent but I understand the proportion served is quite big. Despite this, the price could be cheaper and more affordable as twenty dollars for a burger or salad definitely isn't worth the money especially, considering the amount of fast food restaurants wiling to serve the same but of less quality for five dollars.

Food and flowerwall are nicely presented but breakfast here is nothing special. Unfortunately. At all.

Coffee was terrible. (I’m not even picky)

Flavours and ingredients are plain and basic and (below) average. Dukkah was 90% sesame seeds - no spice flavour. Smashed avo was brown, melted and indistinguishable as avocado.

Sad to say this brunch spot is unbelievably overrated.
