Gets a little noisy, but great value $20 lunch menu.
Excellent food. We had the $55 set menu. Good value. Would highly recommend
Attentive staff and quick service. Reasonably priced and good ambience
Everything great. Just a little noisy when full
Nice avenue and good vibes!
staff were fantastic very prompt and accomodating. Also loved the surprise dessert for my daughters birthday!
Food was good and tasty. Service was exemplary and catered to every need. Set menu is really great value. Will be returning again to dine
Ambiance, food presentation and value for money was excellent. However, they mixed up our orders - we requested for the Arancini with truffle but was served another variant instead. Ordered my steak as medium and was served a medium well instead. Nonetheless the food was excellent!
Great city spot that can cater for large or small groups. Express lunch is great value and lots of options to choose from. Kids are catered for and welcome. Staff are friendly and attentive. Really good value for money and great atmosphere.
Very good value lunch in an historic building. Service was excellent and we were not hustled to leave so great for a chat and meal.
Really loved this restaurant, will go back again. Great atmosphere & quick with service.
Definitely returning when next in Melbourne. Vibrant restaurant, friendly staff, meals great and served as requested.
We were made to feel very welcome no issues what so ever having a a stroller and baby. Happy vibe very very pleasant staff.
The Bank was great. The service was very quick and attentive. The food was yum. Pre-order of lunch orders were very efficient.The atmosphere was lively and busy.
Great lunch spot in a lovely atmosphere - great value, food and service!
Amazing food and menu. Great for all dietary requirements! Amazing value too!
Great food , great service
Great food, attentive service, fantastuc place, good pricing too.
Good food, great building. Was only there for a work lunch but has a lot of appeal for a lot of different occasions
being a regular diner here, it does tick quite a few boxes for me. enjoy it and is one of my favorite restaurants
My friends and I enjoyed dining there again as usual. We'll be back again.
Clare, John, and all the leaders set the scene for a serving team that works extra well to consistently deliver special experiences for casual or regular patrons such that I tend to keep coming back :)
We were a group of senior from a seniors social club - all 60 - 80 years old. when i made the booking I requested that we were NOT seated in the area against the wall - it is too hard for us to be seated. This requested was ignored and I had to ask again for the seating arrangement to be changed to tables in the middle of the dining area for ease of access. This was a small annoyance.
My friend and I enjoyed the food and drinks very much. It's good to get served steak cooked exactly as we requested (mine medium - friend well done). I'll be back next week with another friend or 2). I'm looking forward to it!
Had diner with 10 colleagues, split bill no problem on a week day. Food was good and timely, service with a smile and there when you needed them. The interior is the draw card, but the food is affordable and the atmosphere finishes it off. Good times.
Nice ambience, less noisy and good food! Had a great time!
Have been here for a terrific lunch before so recommended it for our group of four. Took the last booking at 8.45 to follow a Comedy Festival Show. Despite the show finishing much later than expected, they happily accommodated our booking despite us being 25 mins late. Having a coeliac in our party was not an issue either as the table was already prepared with a Gluten - free menu when we arrived. Service was efficient and unobtrusive, despite us being the only table dining after 9.00. Three of the party extremely happy with meals, the fourth having two entrees instead of a main, was less impressed, but still happy. Extensive drinks menu and the wonderful setting made it easy to please all in the party. We will be back.
The food was well done but not overly fancy. I will certainly be back. Our gluten free friend was in heaven.
Very classy, well priced with great food and really good service.
Also has a great happy hour and other specials.
Loved it here! Great food (had the surf and turf, and the dessert platter). The service was spot on, and the venue had such a great feel to it. Would definitely go again when I’m next in Melbourne
Excellent as always. The Bank is my absolute go to for business lunches. Great value, great service and good quality.
courses very rushed. 3 courses in 45m very quick no time for food to digest before next course.
Great service and good food. Would love to do it again but can only afford through Scoopon.
The experience was very good as per usual; my friend couldn't have been happier and neither could I! I have been there numerous times now and I'll keep on coming back every chance I get to meet up with friend/s and enjoy a good value meal in a historic building.
Great food and service! I had a steak that was delicious; and cooked perfectly
food was terrible, burger buns inedible. i wouldn't go back as 3/6 of us were vastly dissatisfied with the food. the one redeemer was that the chips were excellent
What can I say, lovely place with wonderful range of food. Great feel and the lunch deal is great value.
90 minutes between serving the Entrée and the Main meals? What?
Ate on a Scoopon deal with my son. All good at the start. Waitress was attentive, drinks were fast & around 15 minutes for the entree to arrive.
After that it fell apart. Mains took 75 minutes to arrive after the entree. Had to ask twice what was happening before we ate. The first request got no answer, then after a further wait I asked again, for which the food arrived shortly thereafter.
My "Surf and turf"choice was meant to have a 200 gram steak. looked like half that size to my best judgement. 3 prawns & 3 pieces of chorizo plus some vegies. The steak was luke warm. My son's burger was severely burnt in places. He had to leave some of it on his plate. The 2 side orders were nice but it would take a lot of doing to ruin peas and salad. If it was not for the delay I would have sent both mains back. Dessert came shortly after but only after asking could we have it because we had to try to catch the last disrupted train service.
Dessert was ok & scaled own in size.
For the $69 for 2 you got what you paid for in my opinion. I think the 'bean counters' set the profit margin & the meal was the result of their efforts. The real disappointment was the food delay. I cannot believe that in this day & age of service, service & service they could be so slow, especially for the size of the restaurant.
It was not only us. All the Scoopon tables seemed to be together on one side of the restaurant & very little food on their tables. Free drinks were offered but in our case we wanted our dinner not another drink.
As the owner of the restaurant I would be striving to have customers walk out the door feeling fully satisfied that they received a great deal. This would trigger repeat business and positive recommendations as a result of the nights enjoyment, food quality, portion size and all round service. Not so in our case. The Bank on Collins will never see me again, nor will I recommend this establishment to anyone as a result of our recent experience.
