The food is delicious! The service was excellent. The only disappointment was the seating. I had made my reservation in August for Dec. 14 Anniversary & expected one of their best tables at the windows. Didn’t happen, we were stuck with a bad table.

We had dinner last night at Collage- after wanting to go there for about a year. We celebrated my husband birthday, and let me tell you what a disappointment...While the food is great (although I wouldn't classified it as being "fine dining"), the service is just...nonexistent, fade and disappointing. Our waitress didn't care at all, was running everywhere (again in a "fine dining" environment this doesn't happen...), and didn't even bother asking us if we liked our food for any of the appetizers or entrees we had. Then...the birthday cake arrived, with a candle so small we burnt our fingers trying to remove it from the cake. the cake was put on our table without a look at us, neither even a happy birthday... Needless to say, that after spending over $100, this is just unacceptable! We did talk to the manager, Megan, who apologized and just kept telling us to come back it will be better next time. Let me tell you, there is NO NEXT TIME for sure!

We had not been to St. Augustine, and I looked on trip advisor for restaurant ideas. I saw that Collage had good ratings, but you never know. We were so happy with the restaurant and our meal. The restaurant is the nicest in the area, and the food was fantastic. Kasia was our server and she was great - Very nice, gave great suggestions, and a real professional. The amuse buche they served was roasted garlic, with bread, which was amazing. We had the special appetizer of 'duck 3 ways' and it was fantastic. Duck pate, confit, and I can't remember the 3rd, but it was all so good. Kasia suggested the lobster ravioli and the grouper, so that is what we had. All was so good. Megan the mgr., was attentive as well, and very nice. We will be back! What a nice dinner and evening.

Superb food in a quiet but not stuffy environment, excellent service, excellent value for money. Good selection of wines that don’t break the bank. We go every December and I book months in advance to be sure of getting a table.

Great food. We drove 150 miles to have dinner here. Ate here twice and I had the same thing. It was wonderful both times. Escargot were amazing appetizer. I will force myself to have something else besides the steak and short rib chef special. It will be hard but I want to try there lobster pasta. My steak this time and last were a perfect medium rare. I am glad it is not closer because we would be regulars.

Always excellent. Been visiting Collage for 7 or 8 years I think. Parking is always difficult in the old town, but uber is a great option - door to door and no parking hassle. This is a small restaurant with great Old City charm and simply great menu. Reservations can be tough, so plan early.

My husband and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed this gem. It’s quaint, great quality of food, the service was spectacular and their wine menu is extraordinaire. My lobster-was a little over cooked, but they brought a perfectly cooked one immediately. After dinner, the owner followed us outside and congratulated us and thanked us for coming. Reservations highly recommended.

This was out second visit to Collage. I ordered the lobster ravioli with grilled shrimp and a lobster tail on top. It was amazing. The caesar salad was great as well. I proposed to my girlfriend on this occasion and the staff served us champagne and a nice dessert with hearts in the sauce. The only downside was my girlfriend’s steak was undercooked. They offer to butterfly the beef tenderloin and if you are ordering medium well or well, you should have them butterfly it so it will have been cooked long enough. They did fix the steak and she did enjoy it. We will definitely be back. Great food, ambiance, and service.

If you're looking for an incredibly romantic, quiet & unique dining experience then look no further than Collage. The service is impeccable, the ambiance is magical, the food is heavenly & the wine list is impressive.

The phrase "attention to detail" is one this establishment has perfected. In my comments when making my reservation, I noted we were celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived, we were greeted with multiple warm smiles & "Happy Anniversary" - we were seated almost immediately, in spite of the fact we were about 10 minutes early.

We got a quiet table in the corner of the restaurant & our beautiful server came right over & again, "Happy Anniversary, Mr. & Mrs. Harris" - it made me feel so special, just like I did 14 years ago, on my wedding day.

Because my husband & I were on the fence with a wine selection based on our entree choices, our server suggested a wonderful 2015 Truchard Pinot Noir from Napa. It was the perfect pairing for us! Dry & smooth but bursting with surprising dark fruit notes - it made me happy!

The beginning of our meal was the seasonal acorn squash bisque. It was delightful. Rich and full of glorious flavors, my palette was swimming in the holiday season!

Then came the entree - I selected the Chef's Flounder Special & to say that it did not disappoint is a gross understatement. It was prepared perfectly with a delicate crust on the outside & a burst of perfect flavors from the first bite all the way to the last. The delicate fish sat on a bed of risotto that was seasoned & cooked to perfection. This was one of those meals that I (literally) could not stop eating - it was simply amazing.

Much to my surprise & delight, just when I thought this beautiful meal was coming to an end, our server surprised us with the most amazing Butter Rum Cake dessert. Well, I was happy to unbutton my slacks and dive in!! The cake was amazing, balanced & WARM!! Delicious!!

My experience was one that I will not soon forget!!
