Sorry but the food was well below restaurant quality. Service was great, idea is great, but I make better food at home... everyone agreed on this.
I have been to the collective several times now and have always had exceptional service and quality food... The cocktails are even better! we also went for my partners birthday and it is so warming when the staff wish you happy birthday and write a card as well. Would 100% recommend!
Every 2 months we catch up with old workmates. This month it was my turn to organise and as I live at Palm Beach I chose the Collective to have our get together. We all have different choices in food so we could try a few different selections. We all enjoyed our meals & left a tip for the waitstaff.
You walk into an atmosphere created by fairy lights, space due open air feel, and different levels, staff are amazing, very attentive and happy. Food is delicious and presented well, you must try it
Love The Collective every time I go. Great vibe and the food is always amazing. The staff are always really friendly and I'm never disappointed!
Very enjoyable dining but overly expensive.
$3 each cover charge ludicrous
Great Sunday lunch after soaking up the Palm Beach sun, surf and sand. Customer service excellent, food fabulous and cocktails even better!!
This place was great, The food was awesome and the service was just right by all. Drinks selection was extenive and good.
This is my second dining experience at the collective this time was no better than the first crammed into a back corner it was hot and stuffy the food is overpriced and of average quality. The only good thing about thos restaurant is the lovely staff.
Always a great place to eat. Love taking our friends and family there whenever we’re up on the Goldy (from Vic). Very relaxed with great food choices (& cocktails 😏) for everyone.
Great idea but it didn’t work for us as the service was very poor and we waited over 40 minutes for food.
This was our second experience at The Collective. Both times the food has been amazing. However, this time we were very disappointed that our online booking for 8.30 was squeezed out by the kitchen closing at 9.00. We would definitely not have booked had we known that our meal would be rushed like it was.
We wanted to try something different and had wondered what The Collective was like.
Must say we were super impressed with the food & service overall. Thankyou The Collective
Very Good Service
It’s great to not be restricted to one cuisine. We had Japanese,Mexican and Chinese. The wait staff are really friendly and helpful. Overall it’s a fantastic concept, pulled off really well by having good food, wines and lovely service 😊😊
I celebrated my birthday here with friends, we had beautiful food and great customer service. ...easy splitting of the bill. Would definitely dine there again 😆
Great dining idea, unique and inventive. Loved the venue, staff were kind and helpful. Only complaint is they don't have an easy means of splitting bills - which should be standard at a venue like this with so many food options and price points. Overall highly recommend this venue.
It was fab. Service was excellent as was the food
Absolutely loved the concept of this restaurant. With 5 different kitchens turning out top class food, there need never be arguments about where to eat out again. The cocktail list was an unlooked for bonus with some of the most innovative and delicious cocktails I've ever tasted. I was extremely sorry to leave. Well done guys, keep up the friendly but professional service along with the high standard of food and beverages. Highly recommended.
I loved it!!! I would reccomend to everyone! Best place on the coast
10 year anniversary
Some of the best food I've ever had......truffle mac & cheese and mushroom gnocchi were stand out & incredible
The food was gorgeous but we got bumped off our table booking and ended up sitting on a bar stool which was not suitable for physical ailments such as parkinson's disease.
Did not appreciate being told that we have to leave at a certain time when drinks had not even been finished due to another booking. We were rushed through our meal and drinks and were not even offered dessert due to not having any time. Cocktails were so so expensive and food was average tasting.
Brown rice from Mexican a bit blend but great experience overall
Great food, excellent service and an overall great night. Will definitely be bringing friends here.
Amazing food and service. First time there was great and am looking forward to host my birthday dinner there. Wonderful venue and offers a great range of food, I love it.
It would be better if the food was timed so it came within 5-10 minutes of each other. We were waiting over 20 mins for one meal - consequently, everyone else had finished when the final dish arrived!
Had a great night, our waitress was excellent but after she left to go home the service was sporadic but still would not stop me from coming back. Great atmosphere and the staff looked happy.
4 of us had lunch on Easter Tuesday. The service was good. I had souvlaki and found the lamb to be tough. And for a price of $26 I thought it was overpriced. The Umami food was enjoyed, but I didn’t try it. The guacamole was ok - nothing special, very limey. The other meals - spaghetti and a burrito bowl were ok - nothing exceptional.
I wouldn’t bother returning with so many other restaurants on the Gold Coast.
Venue good and great atmosphere but the food is overpriced for what it is. Trendy for young people but not for me - sorry!
The waiter we had was not up to the standards we have had before was rude gave us the incorrect bill then stated that it was wrong which we found strange as we had added it up and was correct gave the cash over its was bought back told incorrect but there was a $10 note missing as when it went over to the cashier there was two ten dollar note very strange spoke to manager we will come back but if we get the same waiter we will not be staying also be nice to see wait staff in some sort of uniform some look pretty scruffy not the right dress code for drink and food services feel we were ripped off
The food and the service was exceptional. Lovely atmosphere and very popular, would highly recommend.
I have to admit I was extremely disappointed in the food, considering there was $40 added for water and surcharge on a Sunday was totally not worth the money.
Wouldn’t be in a hurry to go back
Our waitress was amazing! She was very helpful and attentitive. The food came out fast even with the restaurant full
Good night good food but order starters and mains separately otherwise all meals come out at one time.
We had our side orders come out before our starters.
Love the venue and usually love the food. Had a shocker with a lump of fat instead of a pork belly... salad was supposed to be a 'watermelon salad' but had two tiny pieces.. very disappointing... told the waitress and she said she would tell the chef but never heard back from her until it was time to pay the bill. Otherwise atmosphere was really good and most of the food was great. Cocktails were nice.
Great concept with fantastic mixture of meal and drink choices.
Regretfully the food was very ordinary group of 6 only I person was satisfied. It was too hot no fans in the middle of downstairs. Staff were excellent ambiance was great. The food was expensive for what was served. Sadly none of us will return nor would we recommend the place.
Poor service - waitresses did not return to fill our water until we asked. Food portions were very small and overpriced. Tap beer was not served in a cold class. For the price of beer a cold glass is not much to expect.
all meals were served by different people and at individually - so there was not really a waitress serving us or looking after us.
Was not impressed and will not be recommending or returning.
