The Collective is the Gold Coasts newest dining paradise. Situated on the Gold Coast Highway in Palm Beach, The Collective is an innovative way to dine with family and friends that is sure to please even the fussiest of eaters. Open 7 days a week, The Collective features five individually owned restaurants and two bars including a rooftop bar and dining experience. Transforming the old Palm Beach post office, this new venue will exceed all your expectations with seating for over 300 people in an open outdoor dining setting that the Southern Gold Coast has been craving.

We are embracing exciting new technology changes in the hospitality industry. Our digital menus allow you to send orders directly to the bar and the kitchen so that you can place orders as soon as you are ready. We still provide full table service, and our team are here to help, but we encourage you to embrace this new way of ordering and experience the benefits in speed of service.

My friends received their Mexican food before everyone else and the rest of the Italian food took another 30/40 mins. By the time the food came it was 10 mins before we were supposed to leave.

Great for celebrating with a big group and freedom for each person to eat what they want and spend as much as they want. Ordering was made efficient with the tablet menu device and this made split payments easy as well. :)

We are locals & visit the Collective fortnightly. The menu is so varied it allows you to never have to choose the same thing twice. Food is excellent & the recent intro of live music is really good.

Another lovely meal at the collective. This time we had a much quieter table up the back which made talking between 7 people possible. Love the different choices offered for food. Makes everyone happy including the fussy ones !

From the moment we entered we felt like we were so welcome to dine at The Collective. We were greeted with warmth, taken straight to our table and no sooner sat down than a waiter was there to run through the ordering procedure. Our waitress, Jess, was there before we looked for her - is she a mind reader? She was great. Our order came so quickly and the food was so delicious we reordered another of the dishes -Sticky Pork Ribs. Outstanding! One of my guests was one of Queensland's top chefs and owner of her own training college and she also was more than impressed. The food was delicious. The noise level was high but seems the norm for busy restaurant dining these days.
All in all, we would recommend The Collective for an excellent dining experience.
Thank you for this opportunity to tell you what a great job you're doing.

We were sat right next to the bathroom door upstairs. I think they should remove that table and put a few plants there just to give the customers a bit of space from the bathrooms. Other than that great food great service and great venue

I’ve been here numerous times and the last time I went was just an unpleasant experience. It started when we arrived and standee at the entrance, there was at least 5 waiters/waitresses there talking and they just kept going even though we were standing there. We were finally greeted and exchanged our booking details, then the girl just turned around so her back was to us again and kept going about her conversation while another waitress grabbed our menus etc. Then we ordered garlic bread sticks (very simple entree) and waited 20 minutes for it and they came out cold. We notified the waitress and she took it away and when it came back it was so obvious that all they had done was throw it back under the grill because our two bite marks were still in it, and now it was rock hard. Then when we were in the middle of some meals a different waiter came and tried to take all our menus AND the tablet used to order meals so we couldn’t order anything else. I work in hospitality too so maybe I just notice the small things but it was a really disappointing experience- especially considering it was my birthday and this was the restaurant I picked and to then have such a bad experience.

If you don't expect any wait staff to smile, you are happy to wait 15 minutes for a booked table and you wear ear plugs against the loud music then you will have a great night. Its a great concept, the food is fantastic, the views are great, bill is always reasonable and location is convenient. They just need to tighten up on customer service.

Food was tasty, service was very good, The only thing I would say that if you can only book a table for 2hrs and being a larger group the food needs to come out a lot quicker, 40mins for sliders is a bit long. By the time you share some dishes your time is up and you haven't gotten all your food yet.
The staff were extremely helpful though.

All staff were extremely friendly and very knowledgeable on the product offerings. When we were seated the waiter advised that our booking was for a 2 hour sitting but if we wished to stay longer to let them know and they would see what could be arranged. Sure enough we were enjoying ourselves so much we requested to stay longer which the staff arranged albeit at a different table and all with smiles. Great job guys.

Loved the idea of this type of restaurant, but the price was too much for a collective - would of thought it should be cheaper being all together, not more expensive. Personally, found my creamy pasta with chicken dish to be quite bland tasting, and our table thought overall the food was on the mediocre side. The burger side of the menu was a hit though! Would like to see some reported improvement before trying again.
