    There is a reason this is the #1 restaurant in St. Augustine. The food, wine, service, and ambiance is outstanding. Best corn bisque I have ever had. Seasonal menu means new items to look forward to. Expanded wine list is noteworthy.

    Parking was difficult due to the construction, but worth it. Very neat venue with tables very close together but gratefully the other diners were quiet. Beer and wine only. The Summer Corn Bisque was outstanding, the grouper was very good but served with white rice which seemed monochromatic... The Duo was excellent but should have been warmer. Overall a nice meal and a nice experience.

    Decor was simple elegance. Service impeccable. The delicious rustic bread, olive oil and roasted garlic was a great beginning. The corn soup as an appetizer was just the right blend of flavors. Both dishes, the sea scallops and the beef medallions, were a culinary delight. A perfect 10! I would highly recommend dining at Collage.

    Our salads and fish dishes were good (although the flounder was very salty), but the crowded and noisy dining room detracted from an otherwise fine dining experience. Prices are high considering the overall dining experience.

    My boyfriend is in the fine dining business and has very high standards! I planned his birthday night getaway in St. Augustine and had heard fantastic reviews about Collage...they did not dissapoint!! We ended up getting 3 appetizers because it was do hard to decide! We stayed for awhile and did not feel rushed. Although small with tables fairly close together, it still felt cozy and intimate. EVERYTHING that was brought to our table was absolutely amazing! It was noted that it was his birthday and they served him dessert with a candle :) Collage helped make his birthday perfect!!

    We've had our share of stand out dining experiences and this year for our anniversary we decided to try a new destination locally. Collage was perfect--the setting could not be better for such an occasion, the food was fantastic, service wonderful, nice selection of wines. It could not have been better, really. The hubs had the grouper which is possibly the best grouper I've ever tasted. I had the special which was a duo of beef and short rib stuffed ravioli and we finished with the butter rum cake--perfect to satisfy the sweet tooth without being overly heavy. We will go back and not wait for a special occasion to do so!

    My husband and I went up to St. Aug for Vets day for a little getaway. Everything at Collage was very good, from the service to the food, but I wouldn't qualify the experience as a mind blower. I had the steak with the signature steak sauce and my husband had the mixed grill. Both were good, but again no fireworks going off. Lobster was awesome, but the shrimp tasted a little past its prime. Creme brûlée for dessert was good. I also had two glasses of wine and my husband had a beer. The bill for the two of us was 150.00 plus tip. I expected the bill, but I also expected at least one "When Harry Met Sally" moment...didn't happen. I don't think we'll go back, only because it was too darn expensive for just good food.

    Celebrated my 1 year anniversary here. Service was excellent from beginning to end. It's small and quaint, with a nice quiet, candlelight atmosphere. Perfect for a romantic/special occasion date night. They have a great wine list and an excellent menu. I had the chicken with gnocchi, which was very delicious. My partner had the short ribs with mashed potatoes and he said it was the best! They also serve bread with roasted garlic. Price of meal was $62 which isn't bad for a nice place like this one. BUT, if you have the wine, appetizers, etc. it will add up! Definitely coming back in the future.

    My wife and I celebrated our 42nd anniversary recently in St Augustine. Collage was recommended to us and we decided to make a reservation for dinner. The food was delicious and very well presented. I would definitely return when I am in St Augustine again. The only negative aspect of the experience was the service was very slow. The room is small with about 10 tables and there were 2 servers working yet the time to get drink refills, dessert,etc was excessive

    We adore this restaurant. We come to St. Augustine each year for the FL/GA game and we four stay at the Hilton on the water. Collage is our favorite spot. They never disappoint. The grouper with the brown sugar, etc. is out of this world. My husband adores the rack of lamb. Each year we always say how we wish you were in Orlando!!!! Your wait staff is always so friendly and helpful. My friend never fails to order the coconut ice cream. She dreams of it all year long.

    This is St. Augustine Florida's number 1 best restaurant. We search for the best restaurants wherever we travel and we because we live in Florida we thought we knew the best places to go in St. Augustine and we're we surprised when we found the Collage right now there is some construction on the streets outside but do not let that deter you. Not only was this a great Restaurant for St. Augustine it is now in our top 10 in the past 30 years. All we can say is do not leave St. Augustine with out dining at the Collage.

    The last seating is just as important as the first... that's all that needs to be said. Every table should be greeted and offered a beverage before reviewing the nights specials and asking "ready to order now?''. Thank god for the bus girl. Building has poor acoustics, not sure how to advise improving, but something to think about, maybe rugs. Food was decent. A little too many ingredients per entree reminiscent of the heavy large plates of the eighties complete with garnishes, could be a new trend thing. Overall, could have overlooked a lot of small flaws if the service person had worked a little bit to have a personality and seemed to be happy to have us there, I understand this happens when you get popular but something to guard against.

    Booked this just on a reviews from Open Table and Trip Advisor. We went to a gallery event prior and had a reservation fro 8:30. Table was ready and waiting for us when we arrived in a room with only three other tables and a fire place. The waiter was superb. He was friendly and attentive without taking over the dining experience. As good as the ambiance and service were, the food was definitely the highlight! I had the corn bisque and other all had the chowder. One had the steak that truly melts in your mouth but I had the grouper. It might have been the best fish dish I have eaten. Certainly one of the best. Don't think twice. Just make a reservation.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. They exceeded my expectations for a quiet and cozy place to dine! Definitely make a reservation even for a weekday as there are only about 14 tables. We will certainly be back for another special occasion! The warm goat cheese salad was amazing. The service could not have been better. A great place for a couples night out but too quiet and intimate for a family dinner with children.
