I have been to The Collective a number of times as I am a local. I have taken many friends and relatives to this restaurant and the food used to be very good but I am afraid that the last couple of times the food has not been up to its usual standard. I have found it to be a bit tasteless and lacking in flavour where before the food was terrific.

Most amazing food and service, I love the new upgrade where you can order your meals on a tablet and they bring it to you. Wait times were expected as it is a very popular place. Booked for 15 and extras showed up and the staff accommodated my guests easy and brought us another table to add to the group. Will certainly be back(:

The food was a low standard for meal and presentation.For the price the size of the meal was small.I also don't agree with and extra charge of $3 on the bill for serving you as the pricing was quite high should cover .For example i had the fish of the day which was sweet lip and was supposed to be macadamia crusted on a parsnip puree with red cabbage.The fish meal came down one side of the bowl was this cooked fish with the terrible cooked red cabbage beside it highly peppered and a few drops of parsnip puree round the outside and a piece of lemon grilled?and a couple of macadamias on the cabbage looked univiting.I was expecting a lot better quality and should get what the menu says.The other meals were not much better .Would not recommend or go there again. I am local.I should of taken photos and posted on our website meals on wheels do a better job.Very disappointed.I don't care what i pay as long as i get quality.

Love how you order off the ipads, this time the meals were brought out super quick. Waitresses were very attentive.
Would recommend it to anyone.
Just a note if your splitting the bill it cost $3 per person, didn’t realise it cost this. But other then that it was great.

Have been a few times but this occasion was the worst. From orders not going through to confusion with the ordering, the experience was not up to standard.
Very disappointed.

Had booked for our anniversary , an upstairs couch table, was not told until we arrived that upstairs was ‘unavailable’ so sat us downstairs shoved in between a hundred other people where we couldn’t even hear each other talk. Absolutely NOT IMPRESSED, food average and ambience terrible. Won’t be going back.

We had a large group so the iPad ordering was great, if one of the wait staff had've walked around the whole group it would've taken 10+ minutes. So good having the different food style options.

Had an amazing dinner date there. Food was great and the staff where amazing. Only thing to have stuck out that wasent great was the the amount of chicken karaage that i was given in my noodles. I just feel that if people are paying $6 more to add chicken, that it should be more than 3 pieces like i got. Other than that, if that was different i would give it 5/5 stars for everything and definitely come back for more

I love coming to The Collective but this was the first time I’ve been for dinner and I wasn’t impressed with the music level
I couldn’t have a conversation with my girlfriends without screaming across the table. In the end I just gave up.
And I didn’t like the lack of lighting
The lamps on the table are not enough to see your food especially when your sharing

Great night! Food was amazing, staff were attentive, our kids had a place to play. It was very ‘easy’.
Great ambience.
Lack of parking might be a problem on weekends but we went on a weeknight and it was okay.

As we had trouble with the iPad in special requests with allergies etc. we ordered through the waiter. On a burger. My friend took out lettuce and tomato and wanted to add bacon. The waiter (not writing anything down) said “I’ll add that in last it will take me ages”. When receiving the meal the burger still had the lettuce and tomato and we didn’t receive the side of bacon for the burger either. Yet was charged for it.
I personally had the lentil Dahl, in which on arrival was cold.
Just overall had a below average experience for a restaurant that charges $3 for their service.
