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.

Beautiful bar in the heart of Parramatta, service was great and we felt like we were in a New York rooftop bar

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!

Been here a few times now and we come back for the awesome cocktails and ambience. Was a little upsetting though to find they don't serve desserts on Friday nights - really?

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!

Good ambience & venue for a fun night with friends. Although very limited options for food. Can do better with improvising the limited good menu.

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

Over all enjoyed the night. Loved the cocktail (cardinal sin). 3 stars for food as it was reduced menu and the bar did not inform us before booking and thus did not have many to choose from.

Been there a few times and always enjoyed the ambiance.

would of preferred a city view table outside instead of being lied to and told access wasnt possible outside due to private function only to discover half the outdoor area only was occupied and plenty of free space.

Made a booking through open table with ease, arrived at 7.45 pm to an oasis on the top floor and first impressions of Nick & Nora's was wow.
It was very busy and our group of four ended up waiting a good while for our first drinks to arrive after such prompt ordering. We were told a group of thirty had just turned up with no booking and had to be taken care of first. We weren't very impressed with such a comment after we had taken the time to book days prior. Any ways the rest of the experience went well and we thoroughly enjoyed the drinks a canapes. Our group of four would certainly go back again.

First time visitor to nice but deserted place, you need to chase up somebody to take you to your table, 6:30 Sunday night place was empty. Average overpriced quality food (tapas only) with selection of hundreds of drinks, but no sparkling mineral water, just a house made overpriced soda water.
Nice views over Sydney and that's all. Not worth coming back.

So I took my long time partner for her birthday. We got our reserved seats but asked to be moved to a seat with a view which was amazing. But after the move we didn't realise that was regarded as the "bar" area which meant no table service and had to hint down a waiter to order food.

Waiters seem to be very new and not confident in their service.
I understand everyone learning has to start somewhere but perhaps not on a Friday night.
My first and second experience has Encouraged me to bring more friends, not sure I would be raving about this visit.
The bar and the ambience is top of the range and whilst the waiter were attentive I really felt they lacked experience.
Your outside curfew is a real downer and moving really changed the vibe.

One of the best scotch line-ups I have seen. The views were exceptional. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was yum too - especially the double duck! Very thankful that such a nice place exists in Parramatta!

Classy high end bar, desperately needed for Parramatta. It appears though the word hasn’t got out yet because the place was sparsely patronised on a Thursday.
Drinks are pricey, with a bottle of Prosecco setting us back $75.
We ordered the $100 anti pasta platter which for two people was more than enough and delicious!
One service feature they will need to address is the 10pm curfew on the balconies that offer amazing views both east and west.
I will look forward to my next visit.

I have already recommended Nick and Nora's to everyone I know! It's such an artful, awesome space. You could linger for hours over exotic cocktails, nibbling creative morsels, whilst the view takes your breath away. Love the swinging love seat !

This venue definitely offers a great experience for anyone who's looking for the swank of CBD dining but the convenience of Parramatta.
I wasn't a fan of the Halloween theme, my partner and I on date night were looking for something a bit more treat orientated rather than trick and to a degree we thought it cheapened the experience.
Food and cocktails were as I expected but didn't blow my mind for the price we paid.
I would still recommend the joint though, it is quite a different experience to dining anywhere else in Para and the views are fantastic.
