    Very Disappointed with Seafood platter. A lot of filler. Crackers, pickles, spreads. Little real fish. How about smoked salmon? Ice cream cookie was very hard to eat. Needed a chisel.

    Despite some service issues which were dealt with by the manager, this is a little gem! Charcuterie board was fantastic and located in a funky neighborhood near Beacon Hill park. Come on travelers, leave downtown and try something else!

    I know the industry is still having Covid challenges, even still, I cut some slack on my review. The Collective should be a 5 star, but it isn't right now. It's a great little room, and great location, we were there on a Tuesday evening. Service was a little disjointed, and slow. 20 minutes to get a bottle if wine is too long. Kitchen was quick and spot on, but the food was good, but not great. We'll return, and hope for a better experience.

    Brie is a first rate server. Our food was ordered perfectly and delivered at a very relaxing pace allowing us plenty of time to enjoy each course and visit. Wine list is very adequate with a range of choices. The menu is excellent providing many options for whatever you may be wishing … small plates, shareables and diverse entree options. Highly recommend the charcuterie … well worth the price and generously satisfies four.

    The food and service is always fantastic. I would say that twice one of my friends ordered the mussels and both times the mussels were VERY tiny and some of the shells were virtually empty. Also, the restaurant is LOUD. On Saturday nights they have a DJ spinning. I wouldn’t go back on the weekend for that reason. I want to go to a restaurant OR a bar where there’s loud music. I don’t want both. We couldn’t hear each other and although I’m not noise sensitive, eventually we had to wrap up and leave before we were really ready to go. TOO LOUD! Everything else, however, is fantastic.

    The Collective Wine Bar is a quaint eatery that offers excellent food and wine for your dining pleasure. The prices are a little high but very tasty. I recommend this restaurant for the location and quality of food. It can be a little noisy but you can easily carry on a conversation.

Ambiance was very nice with the green wall and lighting was pleasant. Thank you Collective wine bar for a fantastic night!

    Best charcuterie boards in Victoria! Also the desserts are consistently unique and delicious! Had the sesame dark chocolate mousse and it was dreamy! Good selection of wines and cocktails and the wine flights are great to try a different selection of whites and reds!

    I was disappointed in the vegan charcuterie board, most of the toppings felt like condiments. It would have been great to have some real vegan cheese on it.

    I never give reviews but last night we went to the collective for my birthday dinner and it was so disappointing. I’ve been here before in the winter so I wanted to return but last night the food was bad, the glasses of wine were tiny but so expensive, our pints of beer weren’t even full, the food was really disappointing, the mussels were done in a watered down tomato paste and had like no fries, our water wasn’t refilled, the waitress never checked in. And it took a half hour to get our order in. Sadly, I won’t be going back.

    Our second course was quite slow and getting to us. The waitress said the kitchen was backed up, so it may not have been her fault. We were having such a good time it did not spoil her dinner and wasn’t really a big problem at all but I just thought I’d mention it. Dessert was great. We enjoyed our stay and we would come back

    Food was not the best I’ve had there, duck was tough and fries were little bits !! Would have liked real fries with my steak instead of frozen over cooked. Usually get a bottle of wine but ordered just a glass, only pour 5 oz so asked for 8 oz and paid$ 27.00. Ridiculous.

    This was our 3rd time at the Collective. High expectations based on last 2 visits.......but this time was very disappointing. Service was extremely slow ....for everything from Cocktails......main course One main course was ruined in cooking so more delay.....then the other main when brought to table was cold( Ahi Tuna) Very pricey dinner for a very disappointing experience.
