    Staff was amazing as well as food and ambiance but I ended up paying $50+ in service fee and tip. No visibility into what the service fee was going to or that there was one prior to getting my check. I understood this was a private club but was under the impression they were opening their doors for dinner to non members and wasn’t aware of any added service fee.

    Don't waste your time. Staff could care less about you (also, they don't wear masks...) Food is mediocre at best, and wine glasses smelled like damp dish towels. Probably best to avoid SLU altogether, but if you have to go out there, skip this place for sure.

    Delicious halibut with a sweet and savory concoction of flavors of the pallet. The simple green salad was a refreshing combination of flavors with a hint of mint which is perfect for summer. In combination with kind attentive service made for a relaxing and tasty night!

    Though the food was very good, we were alarmed by a service charge of $25 (on our bill for just the two of us). At first we thought it was automatic gratuity, but it was clearly stated at the bottom of the receipt that the service charge is not in lieu of tip, so tip was still expected in addition. This was not printed on the menus, nor was it made clear prior to service. This is underhanded and unacceptable!

    We were there for Mother's Day Brunch. We were surprised to find a menu different than that posted online (several items we were looking for did not make the list). But the patio was nice and the servers let us move tables to get out of the wind and even rolled a heater up for us. Service was a little slow considering it was pretty quiet but maybe they were working more tables inside. Overall it seems like a nice place although maybe only open to the public during Covid.

    Service was slow and subpar. Took at least 20 minutes for drinks to arrive. Then another 20 minute for wait staff to come by and take orders. Poor job of clearing the table before new dishes were brought out. A cocktail came with lots of sticky syrup on side of the glass. Halibut was not that fresh. Dessert souffle was very greasy. I would not recommend.

    The collective is a private club that is experimenting with opening to the public. The food is great casual fair that puts seasonal ingredients first.. lots of veggies and fusion dishes. You will need to be a little patient as it’s clear they are still working on how to scale to support the surge in dinner volume. If you go in with that expectation you will have a great time and it’s a great value. Super friendly staff.

    My husband and I went to dinner on a Friday night and had such a nice experience. The cocktails were awesome! It took a while to get our dinner cause they were pretty busy, but our server kindly comped a round of drinks for us. Our dinner was very good. The burger was one of the best I've ever had and the burrito was also super yummy. We can't wait to go back and try more drinks and food.

    We had a great server. The swordfish was excellent the burger not so much (too messy) thank god for the crab nachos appetizer. The nachos were tasty. We had a nice booth with adjustable lighting. Great spot for couples or networking. We enjoyed the strawberry shortcake for dinner and it was alright...nothing to write home about. This is my second time at this establishment and both times the drinks were light on alcohol and proper mixing. Overall a decent place for mingling over good food not so much the drinks.
