    We had a few issues with the service at the york collective. Our table was cleared while we went to order dinner, even though we left bags and coats on the chairs. This meant some of group had full drinks removed! These were replaced after some negotiations, as they should be. Each of the four of us couldn't have our first choice of meal as it was not available. One of us ended up with her third choice option! Then we waited, and waited! Overall, we were disappointed with the evening especially having had a good night last time we were there, it's fair to say that it will be some time before we go again!

    Thanks Denise, We are glad we were able to rectify our mistake last night, We are sorry to hear you won't be back, as you know from your past enjoyment here - your visit last night is not the standard our customer usually experience. We appreciate your feedback to enable us to continue to do better. Kind Regards - York on Lilydale Management team

    Food was underwhelming... table was dirty, knives were blunt and everything was sticky. Improvement needed, especially food standard.. I don't think a chef prepared our meals. Such s shame because the dining area is lovely. Went in excited and left disappointed. Won't be returning sorry...

    Love the collective, however last two times I've been the food has been pretty average. The pizzas were mediocre and one order was forgotten.

    We are weekly regulars and love The Collective. The staff are amazing and we love the warm welcome we receive. Can't always get our preferred table due to local footy club booking which is frustrating. Love the specials menu especially the Sri Lankan curry options. Suggest mixing up the "regular menu" as it hasn't changed in a VERY long time

    Staff and ambience was great. Unfortunately two out of four meals were inedible. Due to this l doubt we will dine here again. Also nearly every desert option by two were unavailable to order. Dissappointed concidering it was a Saturday night.

    Miserable staff, very slow, no eye contact, acting like they were doing us a big favour. Never a Thank you. Food was very poor. we did not hang around. We were looking for a nice night out and would have hung around for a few drinks but left early very disappointed.

    We had a table of 9 the first three meals came out in a reasonable amount of time, two more meals came out one hour later and then about 15 or so minutes the rest came out, even when we asked where the meals were we just got told they are busy, not good enough as the meals should have come out together. Most people were happy with the food quality

    We love the Collective but service and food can be so hit and miss. "Specials" menu can vary from stunning authentic Sri Lankan food to basic fare then vegan focussed choices. Someone needs to take charge of food and service in this space to deliver a consistently exciting experience for regulars. We will keep coming back to our "local" but would love the Collective to lift expectations and deliver it's fantastic potential

    The service was very good as were the meals. Very generous proportions and well cooked. The coleslaw was unbelievable! Will definitely be coming back.

    The eggplant parma is to absolutely die for ! (I'm not even a vegetarian!). This was a perfect combo of eggplant with pumpkin below and above and baked with cheese to perfection. The salad that came with it also had a delicious dressing.

    The York Collective was a great venue to catch up with friends. The ambience was excellent, with live music , large variety of drinks and the food was perfect. Highly recommend and will be going again.

    We waited over an hour for the food where entree's and main's arrived all at once except for one of the meals that took another 10 min. The fish and chip meal was dry and chewy and the chips not fresh like they had been sitting for a long time.
