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.

Fantastic cocktails and the Feed Me food option was really great, I had read reviews that the service was bad/slow so was prepared for waiting however they were super attentive and we never waited long for any drinks or food the entire time we were there, loved this place and will definitely be coming back!

Hey I love everything that you guys present. My only recommendation is the lamb dish. Tbh not really the best, doesn’t taste so well. Maybe this should be replaced? I don’t think it’s their value foe the amount we spend.

Location & venue was on point. The food was delicious, the cocktails were amazing. Unfortunately the service was very slow on the night. 2 of our 3 waiters on the night were extremely pleasant & attentive however we did receive attitude from the 3rd. Considering it was a Easter celebration/group of 10 it dampened the night. I still recommend the venue & would go back again.

Have heard a lot about this bar - as I have grown up in Parramatta it was so exciting to know we finally have an elegant roof top bar to go too, so I was pretty excited to try it with my friend who was up form Canberra. On being seated it took for me to flag someone down to take our order. Staff kept walking past our table and helping larger tables in our vicinity. It felt like because we were a small party, we weren't being acknowledged. It took 45 minutes to receive our first cocktail! The view is amazing, the ambience was nice, the cocktails were great. But the service was really really poor. I should expect to feel very looked after no matter how large or small my party size is. I should be asked whether I want another cocktail not long after finishing my current one - this makes me feel looked after and makes you more money. Its key customer service principles. Hope you will take this feedback on board.

Service was appalling unless you sat at the bar. There is a bell on the table to press to get service and they still don’t come. Nice enough place, not a huge venue, drinks are different and unusually nice, however overpriced for what you got. Disappointing!

You don't walk away hungry but it's not all that satisfying either, certainly not great value for money. The canapes and meats are generally delicious but $16 for a tiny amount of duck that is sorely lacking in flavour is very disappointing to say the least.

Otherwise, the service and overall atmosphere of the place is wonderful and I'd happily go back there for drinks and some light snacks, just as long as it's not the duck!

The cocktails, food and ambience are great! However, the service was so slow that we were only able to have one cocktail and one canapé in the 2 hour sitting. It took 40 minutes to receive drinks 1.5 hours to receive the canapé (which was a simple dish). We were celebrating an anniversary and arrived with the intention of having several drinks and dishes but left disappointed and ended up having to go to another bar. The staff were lovely and seemed eager to assist so I can only assume there were just not enough rostered on, which is a real shame because faster service would have surely paid the nightly wages of more staff and left everyone happy.

The mood takes you as soon as you enter. The service is five star and the food is exceptional.

As for the drinks, you won’t be disappointed. Carefully curated and exquisitely served.

If you want a night feeling like you got lost in a Gatsby wonderland while magically becoming the most important person in the room, then nick and norahs need to be your new playground.

10/10 see you there!

What a fun evening and what great views. The beverages were excellent and the staff friendly and attentive. The food was lovely although it is mostly just of the light snacks variety rather than a meal per see - Definitely a venue to recommend and I would visit again when in NSW

The venue itself is beautiful with a great selection of spirits, wines and cocktails. The service however was terrible. They got our order wrong twice (missing drinks) and we waited an hour for a first drinks to arrive, and anywhere between 30-45 minutes for each round. We were told it's table service only for our group (over 10) but we gave up by the third round and just went to the bar. The food is a little pricey for the serving size and pretty average. It was a busy night and the staff were doing their best, but we left feeling like we spent a lot of time just figuring our where our drinks were.

I love the concept that they are trying to deliver, however whether that concept is actually delivered depends on where you’re seated and the waiter serving you. We didn’t have a view and felt crammed in so we could have been anywhere, thus the ambience was lost.
To have to line up to check in when I have already checked in but others haven’t even downloaded the app reflects poor organisation. Then to leave I have to wade through those lined up who are trying to check in.
So again , love the concept, but the delivery of service needs improvement.
