Having dined here a number of times before, we knew beforehand what to expect. A great place to dine with children. The children’s food was excellent although portion size for a 7 year old boy could’ve been a little bigger. We then ordered an extra portion of chips for him; maybe next time, I will order him an adult meal. The children’s portion size was fine for the 5 year old. Adult food was very good except for the gnocchi. The gnocchi was good but not as good as it was on previous occasions and not as good as other meals we ordered. Service was a little hit and miss and I think this was because they were short staffed.
We will still return for another visit and it is a great location for families.

Excellent as always. We like to sit on high seats upstairs. Good atmosphere with background music (you can have a conversation) definitely our favourite place to eat/drink out. If I had to give one negative, it would be that there can be problem with ordering pad, but no biggie 😃 Always excited to dine at The Collective 😆

Guys, we had an amazing time , nobly issue was the serious over load of noise . We unfortunately were seated beside a group that didn’t respect other in the restaurant. High pitched young ladies alcoholed up made it to be a little uncomfortable, but the service we received from Max was amazing and found him to be excellent.
Overall Guys was a great night just a bit too noisy.

Thanks Guys

The collective is amazing , a truly 21 st dining experience that leaves you thinking there is not much point to going anywhere else . Drinks were on point , service was excellent and prompt - and 100% accurate . Food - just wow . But that’s always the case when we eat at the collective .

Exceptional food, terrific service, very friendly and reassuring staff that check you have placed the correct order before cooking and serving food, which eliminates you Receiving the wrong meal. The area surround unfortunately was a little loud inside the venue. Wish the rooftop was open during the day

The food was way over priced, the prices were what you would pay at a fine dining restaurant and the food was not very nice, more like pub food but definitely not worth it for the price. We couldn’t finish our meals as they were not very nice. My husband had pizza and enjoyed it but again, way over priced. We had a booking for 6pm and it was so noisy, not family friendly.

We left the table for 5 minutes came back the wine was gone so was the water! Waitress came back we what she thought was left in the glass of the wine! A couple of drops!
Not good! After just 5 minutes what did we do a runner!
Just bring back a full glass of wine offer a apology for being Presumptuous and leave it at that.

Excellent concept and the service was good. The staff were all doing their best in a difficult COVID environment. However, the food was absolutely terrible. We had dishes from each of the restaurants available and we were very embarrassed as we took friends who had come to visit us. The chicken was poorly fried, the pizza was slop and they even managed to make a taco inedible. We also had a beef and pepper dish which was gluey, fatty, cold and difficult to eat. The staff took the cost of the Tacos off the bill which helped as the prices generally aren’t cheap. The value money was one 1/5 at best. I feel for the wait staff as they can’t control the standard of the food. Overall, it really isn’t worth going to at all (based on our experience on this particular evening) I can’t overstate how poor the food was.

We were very disappointed with our dining experience. We were not given the option of full table service and had quite a lot of difficulty using the tablet to order and then we found that items we wanted were not available. No napkins provided which were surprising since a lot of the menu items are tapas style so not great when you have sticky fingers to clean. Luckies ice-cream sandwich was not freshly made but pre-frozen so you take the risk of breaking a tooth as it's too hard to bite in to. For the price, we paid it lacked quality and certainly was not value for money. The floor was also wet and instead of the waitress getting a mop she said be careful you don't slip. It was so supposed to be a treat night for our kids but sadly didn't deliver.

I was so disappointed. Hair in food, no service from waitstaff, grabbing things off the table before checking it was okay to clear, no water refills for over an hour even when requesting staff to attend the table on the tablet. Staff standing around chatting not making eye contact. Birthday drink was promised for mum, told they would come back for it, no one ever did. No one checked if the food was okay. Pretty sure we got pork for our chicken karage haha

Booked with plenty of weeks/months notice to have my party on the rooftop. Travelled from interstate with family & friends doing the same to have our party moved into the corner near the front door downstairs. To say we were all disappointed about this was an understatement as we had been discussing how lovely it will be this time to be upstairs. Food and service always a winner but having my request ignored definitely was a let down on this occasion.

Unfortunately due to this we can never 100% guarantee any area and we apologise that that wasn't communicated to you.
