The atmosphere is great. The food was a tad expensive, but lovely and brought out very quickly. The overall service was lovely. The salad that came with the meal was disappointing.

3 main meals were ordered but only 2 showed up. The server had forgotten to order one of the meals. She was very apologetic but it’s odd that one meal was forgotten when all orders where placed at the same time. Also I would expect some kind of discount when paying the total but none was offered.

The food was great as was the general ambience but the overall noise was too much. Will probably avoid this location for dinner in the future, more suited to lunch service.

We loved this place but to our surprise this visit they had changed the express lunch menu, which, for my gluten free friend was not great - he loved the fish and chips but now the GFO is not the same.

Had to wait longer than normal for our food and it just didn't have the same taste so we were a little disappointed.

We were celebrating my best friends birthday. The good was fantastic, the service was as great! My only ‘negative’ was it was really loud in there at first with the bar and music playing, but it was still really good.

Would recommend The Bank on Collins. We were there for dinner for 2 on a Saturday night. It was busy but not packed full, so we had some space between us and other diners, which was good considering the place can be quite noisy. This should be expected of the territory, give the style and historic use of the building, which was one of the reasons we booked here. Oyster were really good, steaks were very good, chips were crispy to perfection. Staff were friendly, courteous, attentive. Cool venue for drinks or dinner. Well worth going there.
