Always an interesting night when we go to The Collective Palm Beach. The whole concept just works though I do find the noise level hard to deal with when trying to have a conversation around the table. The ordering system via iPad was easy to navigate.

i specifically booked a rooftop table as i’d been told it was a great place to meet someone for the first time.. like a pre date. the only times available were mid afternoon and lateish Sat night so i opted for the kid afternoon block available.
upon arrival i was told the rooftop was booked out and that they had moved us downstairs. we were seated right in front of the musician. like literally front and centre of the singer. i didn’t tick the ‘it’s a date’ box because it was our first ever meeting and i wasn’t sure what the ‘its a date’ box even meant... it could have been anything so i didn’t tick it. regardless, anyone dining together want to be able to hear each other across a table! we moved to a quieter table but still not the rooftop where i had a actually booked!
i went to the bar and ordered a drink and 25
mins later went back to the bar to see if the drink was on its way... they’d forgotten the order. i eventually had the drink and we left.
seriously not a good experience which is a shame cause i’d heard goood things.
the drink debacle aside, when you book a specific location you expect it to be available

We dined at the Collective on a Friday night and had a group booking of 10. It was an amazing experience. The friendly staff were very accommodating to our needs and did their absolute best to make sure that they could deliver on the night. We found the dining experience so easy from ordering, the selection of the menus for food and drinks and we found it very reasonable in price. Organising split bills for all our guests was a breeze. All of our guests were very impressed by the service, the food, the experience overall. We all talked about how much we enjoyed ourselves and we would all definitely dine again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to our family and friends! Thank you again to the staff at The Collective. We had a great time!

I loved the place, it was my birthday and thought $26 for a vegan dish (pumpkin gnocchi) was a bit expensive, especially because it wasn't very nice either, shame, every one else had a nice meal.

The Collective Palm Beach is the perfect spot any night of the week. It has a great vibe, including on a Monday and Tuesday night. The variety of menu caters to all dietary requirements and peoples wims. It is one of my go to restaurants for an easy, friendly and good vibe venue. Thank you

Very suprised by the speed of the beer service. We timed the second round from ordering to landing on the table 1min & 45secs, Yes 105secs landed in the table.

Food service was also great, from confirming our orders to asking if we are ready to get the next one delivered. Jed, Johnny & the other 3 staffers were FANTASTIC.

Other reviews about split orders makes sense when they offer from 5 different kitchens - really no suprise & no hassle if you Share Platters.

Forgot to get any more photos of the delicious food & great service.

Great selection of food to choose from.

Seriously can't believe you have to pay $3 a head just for a seat at the bar!!!! What restaurant has a cover charge? A friend was popping in to surprise one of my guests (I had booked a seat for him at my table, but he decided not to stay for dinner), unfortunately he was given a lot of grief from floor staff because he said he wasn't staying and he was expected to pay $3 for the privilege of walking up the stairs. Also, I think the price of the drinks are over the top - especially when the establishment is right next door to a hotel! Might go there next time.

Kahu is such a fabulous waiter / manager. He really made our night with his knowledge and friendliness. He was also showing another girls the ropes and was really honourable how he was getting her involved with general food and wine enquirys.

So pleasently surprised by the value for money. We took fussy friends with us who have dined extensively here on the Gold Coast and they were impressed as we were with the choice of meals avaible on the menu.
The pleasant staff who were on hand to make you feel spacial and attend to your order make the Colective a must do again.

The food was over priced for the quality. The crispy duck was very dry. The jalapeños which you pay $5 extra for where non- existent in the nachos. The cocktails in particular the blood moon we watery and it had stale slices around the rim of the glass. We told the waiter and his response was it’s his favourite.

As locals we are always impressed by the incredible service we get at all levels of the Collective experience. From the welcome to the wait staff, food, drinks & overall experience. Dining here truly makes us feel like we are on holidays; relaxed, care free & fortunate to live in a suburb that provides a world class experience for the customer! We dine together or with work, recommend the Collective to clients, have celebrated family birthdays, anniversaries & major milestones! We have come for a quiet lunch or a crazy big dinner with our 3 kids & 20 relatives! Every experience is memorable & we can’t wait to bring our inter state & international friends with us when they visit 😁👍
