Amazing service & great vibe !
We absolutely love your new pay system - it is a game CHANGER!! So easy going in a big group as the waiter knows exactly what you ordered. Best place to go for dinner on the Gold Coast !

Being in a group of 8 it was great to have all the choices available. It was also kid friendly as we had a 3 year old with us. I had the gnocchi and it was the best I’ve ever eaten. I gave the chefs a compliment as I left and they were very touched and said it was made with love. Great night and great experience. The ordering on the iPads is awesome too. Great service.

The Collective is a great all round venue. I’ve found though that the quality of the food has somewhat declined since it opened.

It was our first time at The Collective - we really enjoyed the range of menu options and being able to order electronically whenever we were ready. We shared all the dishes between us and everything we ordered was really nice - namely Okonomiyaki and Slow Cooked Beef Rib. We also found the total bill to be really reasonable. The main downside was the noise level - it was too loud to have a good conversation - which meant we left as soon as we'd finished our meals and went somewhere else.

I had a group of friends with me from out of town. We ordered a share plate off each menu. Everything arrived at the same time & was absolutely delicious. The cocktails went down pretty well too. Thanks again, you guys never disappoint.

By far one of my favourite food experiences on the Gold Coast ever! The staff go above and beyond and the atmosphere is so relaxed. Spoilt for choice, food and drinks came out within minutes and everything was top quality.
I will never be able to go to the Gold Coast again without stopping in for a feast! 🙌

The service was quite good but the food was just average. It kept raining so they were opening and closing the roof all the time. It was loud and hot when it was closed and then when they opened it there was no protection from the sun which we weren’t expecting.

A long time diner at the collective but was left disappointed after a large family dinner on Saturday night. Booking for 5.30. Arrive right on time and the lady at the front greets me by telling me I’ve only got until 8pm to eat. Not even kidding. Hello, booking for 7? Great, you have until 8 because there is another booking straight away. Mmm, yes I’m well, thanks for asking.

Service was fine but I had water poured over my plate and table by the server and not even an offer to help tidy it up, just a SORRY BABE. Constantly reaching in front of our faces to take plates away without so much as an excuse me. Almost collected my brother in law in the face with her elbow.

Normally I can turn a blind eye to the inflated food prices because of the variety but the food from the Asian kitchen took so long it wasn’t out until after everyone had finished their meals even though it was ordered first. When the karate Bao did arrive the piece of chicken was approximately the size of my thumb nail. So I paid $8 for a bun and a piece of lettuce.

At 7.30 we are told we need to leave by another bossy lady with an iPad. When we said that we were told 8 she comically slapped my brother on the shoulder and said Oh sorry, you’ve got half an hour left.

The noise at the place was so loud we had to yell to hear each other.

All in all, poor experience. Most likely won’t be back for some time.

It was fabulous, my friend & I enjoyed it immensely.
I love a Virgin Mary, & the one I received was great, nice & spicy, & great presentation.
I’ll be honest, I make a better risotto, but it was still delicious.
We loved it.

We loved the concept of The Collective. We took our family there and everyone was spoilt for choice, and could find something they liked, there was so much to choose from. Great to see such an extensive vegetarian/vegan menu. It seemed to be very well run and despite ordering on an iPad, the service was still very attentive and helpful. Will definitely be returning.

We LOVE the Collective and go very often being very local and in walking distance. The service was terrible. All meals came out and were so staggered that some of us didn’t get food until others were finished. It took FOREVER to get the waiter to respond as they were all standing around talking when we needed drinks even when using the call on the iPad
