My wife and I enjoyed everything we during our experience. The cocktails were awesome and we split the chicken platter and short ribs. Both were great! We enjoyed the chocolate pie for dessert and it was refreshingly light. We booked another reservation for next weekend while we signed our bill. Wonderful neighborhood ambiance coupled with outstanding service and food.

The menu was full of appealing dishes. We found ourselves asking our server for recommendations. It was hard to choose. We tried the salmon tartare, table guacamole, and the crab cakes. So delicious. The cocktails were equally divine. Service was excellent and a great date night experience.

Kind of a weird experience. Probably had 7 different people come to our table but it was hard to get help when needed. I was also surprised about the number of different touch points when we were not permitted to sit next to each other, since we would’ve been too close to another table.

We had great and attentive service. We have been there before, but our friends had not. The staff gave us both an appetizer and desert "on the house." Just an amazing evening!

I went to Arizona Restaurant Week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Chris was an excellent server. The food was outstanding. I was very impressed by the chef. The bar was very noisy and the dining room became somewhat noisy once it filled up.

We had such a great evening with our friends at The Collins!! Drinks, food, and service were exceptional. You can't go wrong with any of the menu items from appetizers to desserts. I would highly recommend the Brussels sprouts.

A perfect evening. My wife and I were out for the first time since our son was born. Staff was great drinks were tasty. Oysters were small but delicious. Crabcakes were yummy and actually crabby instead of filler. Fries were crisp. Get the coconut cream pie super delicious.

The only downside is my wife's ribs were disappointing. They lacked smoke flavor and bbq sauce was meh. Go here just get something else.

Great food. Kitchen and chefs are wonderful. Noise level is excessive, so ask for a booth or perimeter table. Rotating servers makes for slightly disjointed service. But, our waiter was great. Not really sure why they operate with food delivers... does not seem necessary. Overall, good and solid.

We added The Collins to our weekly restaurant list, I had been at Collins in mid December 2018, and fell in love with butterscotch pecan pie. I convinced my family to come finally to The Collins and we enjoyed every minute!

My wife and I went to The Collins during Arizona Restaurant week. It was just ok. I had the beef short rib; while the flavor was really good, half of it was pure fat which made for a pretty small portion of protein. It came with mushroom risotto and this couldn’t be further from what I received. It was very starchy almost rice like mashed potatoes. My wife had the crab cakes which came with Fries. It was very tasty and she enjoyed it. Dessert was just ok as was the appetizers of corn and crab chowder.

The service was just ok considering the place was only about half full. We had to wait at the reception area for about 5 minutes as nobody was there. The person who brought out entrees took away our appetizer plates. We were asked if we wanted coffee when we were on our last bite of our dessert.

Overall it was just ok. Would I go back? Probably not.

We went for my fiance's birthday with our parents and grandma. Everyone loved their food, ambiance was just right--not too loud. My spicy tequila drink was AMAZING, I would order that every time hands down. My only critique would be that I wish there were a couple more dessert options, we had one of each and all were VERY sweet. Regardless, we will be back!

The sausage pizza was absolutely amazing. We were a few minutes early for our reservations so got a drink at the bar and they brought out a little snack for us while we were waiting, even though they sat us at our table just 1 min after our reservation. Great service, high quality food and I'm still dreaming of the pizza. Can't wait to go back!
