Great, although it was our first time going with our puppy. The puppy did not settle well but our server was so nice and accommodating. Unfortunately, a woman at another table continued to yell expletives to us imploring us to leave as we had no right to be there. We did leave after my wife went over to apologize but, the woman called then called her a “c##t”. Nothing you or your restaurant could do to change this and as I said the server tried to help the best she could. I can’t believe this could ever happen again so we will wait a few weeks and try again. Looking forward to it.
Thanks

Having had only one lunch at The Collective Wine Bar however, suffice to write that my meal was very good and good value, and that I will be back for dinner!

My wife and I don’t get out too much with three young children too much. We had wonderful night out. The food and drinks were delicious. It was the perfect place close to home to have a romantic night out.

Wonderful dinner with friends on the patio. Amazing cocktails (try the Trust Us), delicious food and wonderful service. Shout out to our server who was 100% right when recommending that we order the beef tenderloin medium rare. It was done perfectly and so tender. And kudos to the bar tender who always manages to elevate their cocktails to a whole new level.

Booked an early table, as none were showing available between 5.45 and 7.45pm not sure why as there’s was lots of availability during that period, so we could have just walked in.
Sat outside at the front, the sunny patio by the side was full which looked very nice.
It felt a bit grubby sitting there, not sure why, would probably sit inside next time.
Tried the watermelon Margarita which was quite nice.
Service was fine, has 3 dip and bread to start, not too impressed with this.
Then the filet mignon with blue cheese butter which was very good, super tender, served with potatoes and zucchini, which were a bit underwhelming.
Had Creme Brûlée desert which was ok.
Toilets were at the back down a dingy corridor, think they must be shared with some other business, not the cleanest.
I really wanted to love this place, as the reviews had been so great, maybe on a busy night with more atmosphere I would have felt different.

The Collective is a welcoming spot with great food and wine. The owners are always looking for ways to enhance the dining experience: keeping the menu fresh without removing favourite dishes; adding live music; expanding patio service; and showing genuine care and appreciation for their patrons. It has been such a welcome addition to Cook Street Village.

We sat outside along a small alleyway where there is sunshine in the early evening and is free of wind, which was very pleasant. Our server was knowledgeable, prompt, and courteous. The wine selections were good and the food excellent.

Excellent charcuterie and cheese board and fantastic wine list: great value at happy hour, especially. Veggies for my main were SUPERB; the duck was so-so. Broth for the SSI mussels was delicious though the mussels were on the small side, so I can’t give 5🌟for the food, though I almost would. Excellent service, nice atmosphere.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch -- excellent food and our waitress was lovely. We were somewhat disappointed that the menu we'd seen online was no longer being offered (update your website, please!). Also the group next to us was exceedingly noisy...we could hardly hear each other talk. But we'd certainly come again.
