The classiest place to drink in Parramatta. Incredible city views combined with outstanding service. Awesome cocktails, and the cheeseboard to end all cheeseboards. Five stars.

This is the second time I have been to Nick and Nora’s and it is such a beautiful place with a cocktail menu to die for. Food was divine! Pity we had to be out after the 2 hours due to Covid.

I mostly go for the champagne and oysters. Not a place for dinner but perfect for drink and tapas

We didn't order any food, but the menu did look interesting. We arrived early to our booking and they were very accommodating and let us sit outside until a table inside was ready, however we probably would have preferred to stay outside as the heaters were nice, view was amazing and it was more spacious. When we were moved inside it was quite a small space that we shared with three other small groups/couples. It was less private and not very comfortable. The cocktails were lovely and reasonably priced, considering you'll pay the same amount elsewhere for a very simple plain drink.

Absolutely disgusting service from the lady hostess. She had a bad attitude towards our group to begin, we had a 6pm booking we weren’t served until 6.25pm and were given our first drink at 6.45pm. 2 friends were late so we booked another seating at 8pm and were rudely told this wasn’t allowed even when It was 7.25pm when we were finally served food. Absolutely disgusting service, nasty hostess!! The barmaid was lovely though. Wouldn’t recommend at all and I run pubs and hotels! Shocking!

First experience was great - however when drink was spilt on guest, no compensation was made which was poor - sound levels were a bit loud making it difficult to converse without raising your voice - but all given the 2 hours spent there was an enjoyable experience and suited the occasion and purpose.

Great ambiance, great drink selection. Thank you for reseating me inside when it was cold outside.
Service was a but slow, my drink order was forgotten almost every time I reminded the staff. Needs improvement.
Also a bit more gluten free options needed on your menu.
Please do not charge extra for gf bread or crackers. Come on.
However overall excellent experience.

There was only 2 of us and the attendant sat us in front of a pylon on a table for 6 with a group of people outside as our view. Would not accommodate a change of seating for us even though we’ve been here a few times. This was our first choice post isolation for a nice evening out - we were left with no choice but to leave.

Appalling service - took 40 minutes to get 2 glasses of wine and olives (nothing cooked and no cocktails!). Guests who ordered after us (with the same waiter) were served first - absolutely unprofessional.
It was a busy night with a concert at Bankwest stadium and that was used as an excuse for the super slow service. The venue should have been prepared for a busy night and have extra staff which apparently they did not.
On a positive side - great outdoor area with the nice view.

We had a great night, there was a mix up with a dessert ordered, the wrong one was brought out and then the correct one and we were asked to pay for both. We had to fight to not pay for it even though it was not our mistake - we ended up asking them to take away the correct one as we didnt want to pay twice - not great when we had 15 people buying loads of drinks and other food!!

Food was good though small in portion size. Great wine and champagne selection. Unfortunately for cigar smokers the terrace is small and not a lounge in sight. Cigar terrace closes at 10pm which is disappointing.

My friend and I had our first visit to Nick and Nora's and it was excellent. Our initial focus was on gin-based cocktails and our waiter's suggestions and subsequent provision of those drinks (which was quite a show) were excellent. We enjoyed some light meals which were also very good. A great night!

The ambiance is calm, the food beautiful and the waiters friendly. If you want to have a relaxing night, You came to the right place. The downside though is that parking is off the street, so good luck finding parking!

I had booked a month ago for the valentines special of a bottle of champagne and seafood platter. We arrived on time and were told that the seafood platter was sold out. If you advertise a special atleast make sure there is enough for the ones who have booked for it and confirmed their booking. All the other food is very over priced and the service was extremely slow. The high tables are far to close together, it’s impossible to have a conversation with your partner without the people next you tearing the whole thing. I’ve been here before and really enjoyed myself however I don’t think I’ll be returning again.

Went for dinner on Friday night (had a booking) they were running with what looked to be a reduced menu, there was no mention that they were not going to do the Champagne tower (Until we asked) & we ordered the sour dough bread & after it hadnt arrived after 30mins - cancelled it & left.
I have dined there before & it was lovely, but this time we definitely weren’t impressed
Thanks
