    My friend and I had a booking for 6pm. We happen to turn up 45min early and there was availability for us from 5.15pm to 7.15pm (2hr allocated time for bookings) which was great. A lady called Marta was serving us and she was so rude and we have no idea what she was saying as she spoke so quick. She charged us for a bowl of nuts which are clearly not on your menu and then she put the bill in front of us at 6.20pm! This is appalling service as we were looking to have a few snacks and a couple of drinks more. Why was she rushing us as there were tables empty around us as well? Please fix your bartenders’ manners especially Marta! What a disgrace and I certainly won’t be encouraging anyone to come to Dean and Nancy going forward. Put simply, we felt unwelcome there by Marta!

    The bar was incredible. Lovely views and live music. Staff were somewhat rude and don’t interact much and shoved the bill in our face before we asked. Not the level of service you would expect for the amount you are paying…

    The food was absolutely immaculate the scotch fillet was mouth watering and the service was amazing the waiters were very attendant and the bartenders were so professional and entertaining. The view was gorgeous. 10000/10, definitely coming back. We asked for 2 scotch fillets and only 1 was sent and without us even mentioning it, the manager offered for our drinks to be on the house.

    Overall experience - would not come again. Our entree was nice however when the waiter (silver hair) came and cleared our food, her mouth was full of food and she was talking and chewing at the same time. To saw we were shocked is the very least! Our mains then came after more than a 40 min wait. We asked our waiter where the food was and she told us the Rib Eye takes at least 30 mins to cook, which is fine but should of been communicated to us from the start so we weren’t left wondering what was taking so long. The steak then came out but the plate was full of blood and it mixed with the butter sauce. The steak was also cold and was tough to chew. It came with sides and it didnt fit on the tiny table we had so they placed it behind us and was so awkward to eat as we were constantly twisting and turning. The market salad that it came with as a side was absolutely disgusting, i found a huge chunk of dirt on the leaf and hair. When showed the manager, he did apologise, take it back and brought out two glasses of champagne and a replacement salad which is a nice gesture however i couldn’t touch the salad again after what i just saw. Whilst the restaurant itself is beautiful with great ambience, the food and service needs improving. Disappointed as it was my partner’s birthday and wanted to treat him to a nice dinner but we were met with the opposite.

    definitely is just for drinks, we ordered food and found the table space to be too crowded and we were sandwiched between other customers almost o the point we were touching shoulders with strangers. the food and drinks were amazing and service from the workers were great as well.

    First timer with our group and enjoyed it thoroughly. Pricey though - especially $10 for a small container of mixed nuts - which should be provided as part of the table, but a great New York stye vibe and feeling.

    The interior was nice, but the servers were lacking in knowledge about the menu and drinks. Try to avoid being seated in the corners as there is a big cold draft. We ordered two cocktails and oysters. The oysters were fresh but the price was steep ($36 for 6). The view was underwhelming as you are surrounded by buildings. The drinks were standard, nothing outstanding. Overall I would recommend to go once for the experience but would unlikely return again.

    The overall experience was great. We had amazing cocktail&food. The music was great with some live music pianist. The négatif of this night is the wait under the rain for 20min to get up. We had a booking at 4.30 and the host let us get into the lift at 4.50… That didn’t put us on the best mood for after work drink!

    Dean and Nancy's was ok. I don't hate it but I don't particularly think that it was anything special. The seating arrangement wasn't very convenient, but I think they tried the best they could considering how the layout of the place is. The views are also nothing special, it was on the 21st floor, but you don't really see anything spectacular it's just other buildings. The cocktails were fine, also nothing special to write about, they were just fine. Overall, it was an ok experience. It wasn't good but it also wasn't bad. But I don't think I will go back there again as there are much better places around the city to go to.

    Disappointing review for such a nice venue, where the place could have been a better experience it failed miserably with the staff. It was confusing with the line. Not sure why there’s still one even with reservations. Waited half an hour to get in, our reservation was at 4:30pm. Was told to wait outside of the building or entrance even though there wasn’t a long line. We pointed out to the guard/staff that our reservation only stated we could stay for a few hours meaning until 6:30pm. He voiced that staff upstairs would make up for the time lost. Lift was confusing. You’re supposed to get out at level 21 and then walk upstairs to level 22. Once seated the waitress told us we could only stay until 6pm. I informed her of the wait downstairs. She then said we can stay until 6:30pm but we’ll have to move from our table seat and then sit at the bar. Obviously we didn’t stay that long. An hour later we left.
