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

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.

I used to visit often but haven't been for a while and won't be returning again in the foreseeable future because of the following reasons:
1. Food portions have been reduced;
2. Menu items need changing... have been the same for at least 2-3 years.. becoming boring;
3. Service was very slow and seemed very disorganised and inefficient;
4. Waitress didn't speak very good English.

sorry!

1st time diner at Bank on Collins! Very happy with the meal & drinks. Used a Scoopon voucher so restricted menu but extremely happy with the food, especially arancini balls & pork belly! Dining adjacent to the bar with very high ceilings so quite noisy! A little hard to find the dining entry, signage would be good. Overall great experience, would definitely return.

We had the $20 lunch deal which had a heap of options and incl a wine - we both had the steak chips and salad and it was delicious . Was very busy considering it was a Tuesday but our meals arrived very quickly. Beautiful setting in old building and great bar area for drinks. Will be back .

We have never been more impressed with the value for money that The Bank offered. We had purchased a scoopon to use while we stayed in the city for the weekend, in previous experience the staff will turn their noses up because of the whole ‘scoopon’ thing. The whole experience was fantastic, the staff were absolutely lovely, they weren’t pushy, they let us finish before coming to our table. And not to mention that beautiful building, just stunning.
We will definitely be back!!

The food is always great; it is always freshly cooked and the steak is always cooked the way I like it (medium). It always has good value; especially the $20 lunch deal. All my friends like the food and plan to come back again.

Really great venue for a group catch up and email. I was concerned that it might be quite noisy from other reviews, but on a Thursday night there was plenty of atmosphere without too much noise. The whole group loved the range of menu options (including GF for the coeliacs) and central position. Service was excellent - very fast, very efficient, very friendly.

Our overall experience of a business lunch at The Bank was great. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was both quality and inexpensive.
