    The food was unforgivable, especially at this price point. The booked seating “wasn’t available” and at 8-00 we were told the kitchen was closing. (Hadn’t even received our drinks order!) The staff were lovely. Seems they have regular trouble trying to achieve consistency. I’m sorry for them but I wouldn’t risk it again.

    I had three bao buns. Chicken one was nice. Pork was dry and just disgusting, looked like it was a week old (I sent it back and got a refund). The prawn one partly had shell on it (I complained about that too). I know I sound like a whinger, but come on guys this sort of food is not hard or gourmet. Very little care factor I think. I'm local and I certainly won't be back any time soon and will not be recommending this place.

    We’ve dined here several times before but today everyone felt the meals were pretty average, and service was average too - perhaps being a busy day could explain it.

    Very good variety, food and venue . Music was abit loud for dining . And would to be able to prioritise food as starters and mains as all our food came at same time but was great service and came quickly

    The Collective Palm BeachResponded on September 3, 2022Hi Lach, thank you for your feedback, and will pass on your comments to the team. due to the nature of 5 separate kitchens, it is near impossible for us to guarantee all meals will come together and that is why we suggest the next time you dine with us order meals as you go. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to having you back in the future.

    Food was ok, depending on what you ordered, if it was value for money. Ordering on your phone was annoying, had to chase up our drink order and show wait staff proof on the phone, then food order I had prepared disappeared and I had to do it all over again. Overall, not the relaxing experience that going out for dinner should be. Would’ve been happy to give this feedback in person but wasn’t asked at all how everything was.

    Food was great, space is beautiful, service wasn’t great. Ordering via the QR code eliminates that personal feeling of being catered to. I was there to celebrate my birthday, and the only time I saw a waiter was when they dropped off our orders. They didn’t mention any specials or any birthday wishes. There was no personal touch to the service like there has been in previous visits to The Collection. Nothing personal against our waiters themselves, just overall lacks the warm inviting feeling.

    Our food and service was great but the new order on you phone system is a pain!! We all spent more time going through our phones to find what we wanted rather than talking to each other. My husband couldn't see the start a TAB payment option plus we ordered on 3 different phones so we had multiple payments come out of our bank, more bank charges. It wasn't made clear at the start if we could just order from our waiter, was that an option??? We go to the collective for most family birthdays and celebrations because the food is good and caters to everyone young and old but let night made it difficult.

    Lovely venue & dining concept however organisation between restaurants poor. Our party ordered from 3 different restaurants. Five of our party of seven ate within 20 mins. The other 2 persons waited in excess of 1 hour for their meals to come out. I’m the end we had to ask to takeaway the meals. Feel staff should have advised the wait time at or shortly after ordering.

    My wife and I are Pensioners and are relatively old. When we arrived for lunch we were respectfully greeted by staff and shown to our table. Not being fully computer literate, we chose to receive the table service to place our orders for the drinks and food. Glad we did. My wife is Coeliac and we always have concerns about cross contamination of her gluten free food requests. In the past at other restaurants, she's suffered greatly and has been very ill after obviously eating contaminated food (gluten). Each of the times that we have eaten at The Collective, my wife has suffered no side effects at all and for that we are both grateful and she appreciates the fact that the knowledge that the chefs obviously have about cooking gluten free food and for the attention they give to providing her the gluten free choices which she needs to live, is wonderful. The service was outstanding and the food was quick to come out. Staff are all very respectful and attentive to all the patrons needs. The ambience was great, however I do have one concern which is about the heaters being placed between two or three tables, which I found, became too hot for me to be near. I felt that if I asked for it to be moved then the other patrons might not want it moved. Nothing really to complain about but I thought you would like to know about my concern. The quality of the food made the total of the bill very reasonable. On behalf of myself and my wife, we thank you and we will be back for sure and we will be recommending The Collective to all our friends. Paul Barwick

    We have dined here many times and this time unfortunately wasn’t as good. The staff are pleasant and respectful. The meals were subpar compared to previous visits. I absolutely love the lamb gnocchi however this experience was awful 6 or 7 small pieces of chewy fatty grizzly pieces of lamb disproportionate amount of gnocchi and when asked two waiters for some Parmesan cheese nearly finished meal before it came. My husbands meal of braised lamb with lemon potatoes and heirloom carrots was more like a stockpot meal with very little flavor. We were never asked how was everything and a couple of times water poured before receiving an answer. The table next to us were having a conversation pretty loudly and left without paying, the table above us sat with their feet on the wall near my husbands head, Still we appreciate having a meal made for us without the clean up and as said previously we have had great meals and experiences there.

    The Collective Palm BeachResponded on August 11, 2022Hi Julie, we are very disappointed to hear that your recent visit to the Collective wasn't your best experience with us. We value your feedback and it will taken on board with our kitchen and management team and we hope you can give us another chance in the future to turn your experience around. Thank you again for your valuable feedback and we hope to see you again. Have a great day!
