The Bank on Collins
The place was too noisy for a chat. Food was at an average standard for the price. Service was good with polite staff.
I go to The Bank regularly. Their lunch express menu is perfect for meetings over lunch as they are quick, value for money and delicious.
We had a late lunch on a Monday so it was a quieter atmosphere, which meant we had a hearty conversation while enjoying good food. We ordered from the Express Lunch menu and enjoyed vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The classic burger was a hit as too the couscous salad. Will be back to try other dishes on offer.

We had a lovely lunch at The Bank on Collins. Food was delicious and the decor superb.
Thanks for the 5 star rating Lyn! The beautiful building always amazes us!
Great food and cocktails. The service is really good, friendly staff. Beautiful decor.
Thanks for the review! We are glad you enjoyed the visit - hope to see you again soon!
Have been to the Bank on Collins many times but this is the first time since new ownership. Whilst the service was impeccable and extremely quick, i think the quality and choice of meals has gone downhill; there is a 'sameness' to the dishes and not much choice. making my recent trip feel bland and ordinary. Maybe a complete menu revamp could be in order?
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Kathy! We are always working on new and exciting menus so hope you will come back and try something else soon!
It was a fantastic introduction for a new team member for us. The venue was beautiful and the food was lovely.
Thanks for the review Lauren! We hope you come back again soon
The perfect place to celebrate my 40th with loved ones.
Tasty food & great value for money in a beautiful setting.
Will visit again next time we are in Melbourne.
Thanks for the review Kirstie and Happy 40th!! Look forward to seeing you again next time!
The food was pretty average and cost what you would expect. It was very quiet but that was because it was Cup day. The staff and service were OK. It is not somewhere I would go back to especially with the number of other places within the CBD.

The Bank on Collins is great. We really like the variety of lunch offerings and quick lunchtime service. Also really appreciate being able to book online. Fantastic to turn up and know we have a table. Thanks!
We really appreciate the review David! Hopefully we see you again soon
Interesting venue inside the converted Bank. Service and food were excellent. A real gem!
Thanks for the review! We definitely feel lucky working in such a beautiful building
Great service and good food. Worth going for lunch and I would give it a 9/10.
Thanks for the review! You will have to come back again soon so we can try and get a 10/10!
The express lunch menu hits the spot. We pre-ordered and didn't have to wait at all for our food. The drinks came out as soon as we ordered and the food shortly after. Excellent place for a catch up.
Thanks for the review Mandy! The express lunch is definitely a crowd favourite!
I have been eating here from the Express Menu for a long time now but since the change of ownership the menu has changed and gone up in price. Charging $2 for 15ml of sauce to have with your steak is a rip off especially when it used to be free. Items that we used to like are no longer on the menu either which has been cut back dramatically. Also, It took 40 mins for our meals to come out at lunch time which is just way to long and there were only two of us eating. The salad accompanying the steak consisted of noting other than lettuce whereas before it was a decent salad with other items such as onion and cucumber. The hostess who is there is marvelous and a real asset to the venue and will accommodate as much she can. I don't usually leave reviews as I have always enjoyed the food and service but I thought I should say something this time as it wasn't up to its usual high standards.

Good spot for quick lunch. Can be a bit noisy at times.
Everything was fine apart from my Express Burger that was WELL overcooked and on the hard\tough side
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Wayne. We hope the staff on the day were able to help. Hopefully we see you again soon
Value for money in a lovely classy setting. The freee drink with the lunch menu was a nice surprise . Staff were attentive , quick and very polite.
Thanks for the review Pauline! Hopefully we see you again soon!
Simple and no frills food in a spacious environment. High ceilings make it perfect for a work lunch function.
Thanks for the review! Hopefully we see you again soon
Fantastic to go for dinner or after work drinks. We ended up taking our kids and the colouring and crayons were great to keep them occupied.
Thanks for the review Courtney - glad the kids were kept entertained!
STUNNING BUILDING , GREAT SERVICE , GREAT FOOD
Thanks so much for the review Deba! Look forward to seeing you again soon
Love the staff and the food as usual!
Thanks for the review!
Have been here for dinner a few times but was extremely disappointed this time. The menu has changed & the 5 different main meals we ordered were all average. This used to be our go to for work dinners but we won’t be going back again.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Kristy - we would love you to get in touch with more specific feedback. You can email us email@example.com m.au or give us a call. We also have our exciting summer menu launching later this month!
The service is always great. Went during the lunch hour on a Thursday. Ordered from the express menu. Despite that we ordered late and we were served quickly with enough time to spare and get back to the office in time. Food was great too!
Thanks for the review Natalie! We are glad you enjoyed the lunch and were in no rush getting back to work. Hopefully we see you again soon!
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.
Thanks so much for the review Maree! We will definitely pass on your feedback to management. Hopefully we see you again soon!
The Bank On Collins has become my regular venue for work lunch functions/team lunches - great service, ambience and value for money. I have recommended this value to many of my colleagues.
We are glad you enjoy coming to The Bank Paul! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and for recommending us to others - I am sure we will see you soon
Food wasn’t great, servings were small for the prices being charged.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Sophia. If you have more specific feedback on the food we would love for you to email us firstname.lastname@example.org m.au
very nice place to grab something for lunch. Food , service great !
Thanks for the review Janna!
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.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Kate and apologies again for the confusion with your experience. We hope overall you were able to enjoy the night and do hope you come back again soon!
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.
Thanks for leaving a review Georgia! We are always working on exciting new menus and updates to our classics. We hope you come back again soon and any specific feedback on the day please let us know!
Good, a bit noisy but acknowledge it was a Friday & our meals coming out was slow
Thanks for taking the time to review Clare - we hope to see you again soon!
Great food and excellent service. The prices are very reasonable. There is a great selection of beers on tap.
Glad you enjoyed your visit Richard!
Lovely service and care by the waiting staff but I find the noise levels very uncomfortable and distracting.
Excellent attentive service in a lovely setting with delicious food
Loved the evening and will definitely recommend to friends, many have already been and enjoyed it also
Great restaurant in the heart of Melbourne for corporate events
Thanks for the review Ray! We hope to see you again soon
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.
Thanks for the review! We are glad you enjoyed the night celebrating your best friends birthday!
Beautiful venue, great food and lovely staff! Highly recommend.
Thanks for the rating Jackie! Hopefully we see you again soon
Really quick and efficient service. Lunch special great value for money and lots of choices.
Thanks for leaving a review and we are glad you enjoyed lunch! Hopefully we see you again soon
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.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! We are glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. We love the style and history of the building too - hopefully we see you again soon!
