The Bank on Collins
Great food & Service! My husband and I very much enjoyed our dining experience at The Bank on collins.
Thanks for the 5 star review Michelle! Glad you both had such a great time with us. Hopefully we see you again soon!
Probably not the right venue for a quiet conversation. However, it is a stunning building.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Linda! Hopefully we see you again soon
Had the gnocchi and it was terrible! Husband had the classic burger and he said it was bad also! The service was great through

Really peaceful for lunch not like when you go for dinner
Thanks for the review Peter! Hopefully we see you again soon!
Great location, great service, great food, reasonably priced! Love it
I always wants I go back to the banks especially with group of people.
Nice place serve snd food is goodb
Reservations cancelled by the restaurant at short notice.
It’ was terrible. Bland, overcooked food and sticky tables that hasn’t been cleaned!! Would not recommend at all.. plastic chairs. Shocking. So disappointed. They lied about having a gluten free and vegan menu too!!
We always go there for drinks after work and we love the venue, so we thought we would try it out for a meal. Very disappointing both in quality and in quantity. Especially for the price you pay.
We were very disappointed overall. The waitress didn't get our wine order correct, the creme brûlée was terrible and we had to order dessert and coffee before we even had our mains served as the kitchen was closing. One of our tables was really sticky as the serviette would stick to it so we asked to get it changed. There was no ambiance considering it was a Sat night and close to Christmas. We were embarrassed that we took our friends to the Bank, as our previous experiences, one for lunch and an overnight stay was pleasant. The manager also told us that she too was embarrassed and that she put in her resignation the day before. Take this as constructive feedback as the architecture of the place is impressive, hopefully the service, food, cleanliness and professionalism of staff will match the architecture.
A great place to meet friends and have a drink or dinner.
Thanks for the review Marilena!
$22 daily special is very good value and offers a range of dishes for the fussy eater. Staff on day were very accommodating and patient. Thank you.
Great food. Great service. Value for money. Would definitely recommend.
Thanks so much for the 5 star review Tanya - we hope to see you again soon
The food and service are both excellent. The only negative is the noise level. It was particularly busy on Friday last and we could barely hear each other 's conversation until those who had dined left to go back to work.
Thanks for the review Heather! We will definitely pass on the feedback to management - hopefully we can organise something in the new year to assist with the noise!
Nice ambience and great dining experience. Kudos to the waiters and waitresses.
We are glad you had such great service Kelvin! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review
Friendly welcome and great service, lunch food was lovely and a generous serve of sparkling made it fun. We were a large group of children and adults and were so very well treated. A call to confirm and pre-order availability made it so easy. Definitely recommend
Thanks so much for the review Fi! We are glad you enjoyed your visit with us for lunch - hopefully we see you again soon!
Quite quiet when we went and the food selection I thought was quite poor. The venue itself is stunning and it should have been busier considering how cool it is.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Jonny. We are always working on new and exciting menus so hopefully you will come back again soon
Great central location with exceptional service and value for money
Thanks for the 5 star review Melanie! We are glad you enjoyed the visit - hopefully we see you again soon!
sounds harsh, I really wanted to say I booked a girls dinner after I heard the old bank was in tact, I found the safe covered over and some teller parts there.
We had sticky tables, we were not offered drinks and had to get up to get service, the girls were great that were there just a bit busy although the restaurant wasn't full.
No fork with desert, no sugar with coffee we all taxi to have a wine and cocktail but the offers were few and far between and no offers to both ends of the table when we called the hosts over - our bill was 3 course for 8
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.
Thanks for the 5 star review Ann! We look forward to seeing you again soon
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.
Thanks for leaving a review Betty! We are glad you enjoyed the visit and we look forward to seeing you again soon
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!
Good for business lunch, great food and service. Regular customer
Thanks for the review!
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.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Laurence. If you have more specific feedback we would love to hear from you - you can email email@example.com m.au
its my go to place for somewhere special to meet with friends!
Thanks for the review Julieann! We hope you keep coming back!
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.
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review Darlene. We would love for you to get in touch directly - we really appreciate the feedback and are always looking for ways we can improve. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org m.au
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!
