Average food. Excellent service
It was a little warm inside the resturant, overall good place.
Tony was great. So enthusiastic and ready with a smile and a recommendation.
Great food, great service. Lovely atmosphere. Very comfortable restaurant.
Second time in a row that my meal came out dry and not warm. Once with chicken meal and the other with a pork chop meal. It may be the last time I come to the restaurant!!
Food has not improved sadly. Steak poor quality served very rare when ordered medium. When brought back out it as tough as shoe leather.
so many amazing menu options. everything is delicious. love going back to try new things on the menu!
It was our 31st Anniversary and we just wanted to sit in a bar and have cocktails and small bites. The Collins has a wonderful, bright and cheerful bar area. The staff is so attentive and when they heard it was our anniversary, they insisted on giving us a complimentary dessert. We tried to decline, but they wouldn’t take no for an answer. We were so glad they insisted, as they brought us a piece of butterscotch pecan pie that was amazing. We had a very good time.
Overall our experience was fine, I wouldn't really say we had any problems, but it was just forgettable for the most part. Our drinks were alright, if not a bit overpriced for what we got. The appetizer (artichoke) was good and well prepared. The onion soup was also good, but my pizza was a bit floppy for lack of a better word. Typically I expect a thin-crust pizza to be fairly crispy, however mine was not. Tasted good, but the texture left something to be desired. We weren't offered another drink until we were effectively done with dinner, and in general the restaurant was a bit loud for our tastes, but not so high as to prevent conversation. Again, there wasn't anything particularly wrong with this place, but for our first time visiting we weren't really impressed either.
Food was amazing! The short ribs was one of the better entrees I’ve ordered in a long time. We had a reservation for 6:45 and checked in early and they said it wasn’t ready yet. 7 pm rolls around and you can tell they forgot about us when I followed up at the hostess stand. Then when we sat down and weren’t ready to order, it took a very long time for the waiter to come back and check. For a small, not that busy restaurant, I thought the service took way too long but the drinks, food and tres leches cake made up for that.
The service here was excellent. All of us enjoyed our food/drinks and the recommendations from our server were on point (swordfish/spaghetti squash, cauliflower and brussel sprouts were exceptionally great). He also made it very easy for all of us to split the checks given all the different meals and apps we shared and also gave us a complimentary dessert for our birthday girl. I can't wait to go back so I can try more items on the menu!
Best bread ever! Thin crust pizza is fabulous... but nothing tops the noodle salad!
This restaurant is so good! We had a group of 8 friends in our most previous dining party and everyone loved their food and said they would be returning. Keep up the good work and feel comfortable spreading the word on this place. :)
The Collins has an ideal mix of atmosphere, food quality, location, service, and value.
Great service and really good food! Will definitely be back.
Amazing in every way!
We love The Collins. Great menu with options for everyone. Beautiful ambiance and vibe. A great neighborhood choice!
Very nice atmosphere, food, and drink. Would recommend and will return.
Had a business dinner here and it was fantastic, Thanks!!
Love this place - is my go to meeting spot for a business lunch, happy hour or dinner. Multiple areas to meet and eat in, staff is attentive and friendly, and the food is good with lots of healthy options.
Fantastic experience, service is excellent and food is amazing!
Friendly service and delicious creative food is always available. This trip a friend tried the mushroom lasagna which was disappointing. However our other entrees were delicious as usual. I also wish they would get a Brut Prosecco as La Marca is only an extra dry. Otherwise it’s still one of my favorites.
Just wished we were seated away from a load group when there were plenty of empty tables
Great for brunch too. Loved the options. Craft cocktails were amazing. Some unique mimosa like options and very tasty dishes with generous portions.
Easy parking, great ambiance (can get a little loud), nice variety of menu items, decent prices, and great staff!
Wow! The food is fabulous and the prices are very reasonable given the quality of the items on the menu. Plan to return soon.
This was our first visit to The Collins and we had a great time. The food was outstanding and the portions were sizable! We were there during Restaurant Week, the perfect time to try a new place. We had the roasted brussels sprouts- perfectly charred and yummy. We also had sandwiches (huge and delicious) and chicken- yummy. We were very impressed and look forward to returning for more delicious food.
As always, the food was outstanding! Love this restaurant!
Excellent food and was treated kindly! The restaurant is cozy & clean.
Fabulous food. Best bread ever! Large portions.
We went for restaurant week. The draw was that the meal included a half dozen oysters, along with a nice selection of entrees and good dessert choices. We got there for social hour which offers some great deals. Above par wines by the glass, ok craft beer on tap, creative cocktails, all at a nice price. We started out with the oyster deal (we like our oysters). They were poorly shucked and did not include horseradish (we should have asked). They were from Baja California and we know now to stay away from west coast oysters, generally speaking. These had a distinct fishy flavor, tho described as briny. ack. That changed our meal deal order. The brussel sprouts instead were plentiful and quite good. The onion soup was tasty but a cardiac patient's nightmare with the amount of cheese. Our entrees of swordfish and mushroom (not enough mushrooms) lasagne were both delicious. We loved the tres leches cake with fresh berries. The big appeal for us was the attentive service. The place is comfy with a trendy vibe.
The food and atmosphere were great! We love the menu and the staff is very pleasant.
The lasagna and swordfish were very good. Onion soup extraordinary. Brussel sprouts over rated
Went for restaurant week because the menu sounded great. And it was GREAT! Everything we had we enjoyed. They give good sized portions for the restaurant week menu which was a nice surprise! Would recommend ordering a cocktail as both we had were outstanding.
This is my 4td time at this restaurant, each time with someone different. Everyone loved the restaurant and would definitively go back
We went for a late Mother’s Day celebration with the family. Everything was delicious! The lobster bisque, French onion soup, braised short rib and pecan pie were our favorites. The staff is also very kind and professional
I have enjoyed The Collins for Sunday happy hour, and most recently for their three course restaurant week special. Each visit has been filled with friendly service, unique cocktails, and delicious food! Very inviting atmosphere, and you will leave satisfied!
Great atmosphere. Best local filet from Arizona Grass Raised beef, because I care about the quality of the meat that I consume, not to mention it was delicious! I only wish they would use this companies ground beef, I buy it from Arcadia Meat market and it makes the most delicious burgers in the world! No exaggeration...
We were seated right away for our early 5:15 dinner but then nobody came to the table for quite a while to bring water or take our drink order. Salmon was almost over cooked and not real flavorful.
Wonderful atmosphere, outstanding attentive service, creative cocktails with a nice selection of wines, and great food at a very good value.
