Diner Reviews
  • "This has replaced legal as my new lunch meeting spot. Fun location, new to many. Foood and service are great. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "It's slightly off the beaten path, the surrounding area isn't much to look at (yet), and the decor is very simple. Don't let any of that keep you away... the food is fantastic. My group of 6 ordered a variety of appetizers and entrees, and we all thoroughly enjoyed what we ordered. There was much "you've got to try this" going on."

  • "young, old, makes no difference there is something for everyone at Gather. Interesting and eclectic menu, well-prepared food and a fun atmosphere."

  • "I have only been to Gather for lunch and cannot speak of it for other meals. The service is prompt and courteous. The food is done in a very simplistic but elegant manner and the correct flavor quotients are apparent in each meal prepared. Perfect for lunch as the server will notify the kitchen if your order needs to be expedited due to work obligations."

  • "This place would rise to the status of a half-decent restaurant if they would put some noise mitigation into it. It is essentially a glass cube, and with a Friday evening crowd of hipsters in there the noise level was deafening. I had to lean and strain to hear the person seated in front of me. Spend a fw bucks and install some acoustic panels or hang some curtains!"

  • "This may be my new favorite restaurant. Unique menu. Great space. The short rib gnocchi, which I have had 3 out of 4 times, was out of this world!"

  • "We arrived at the time of the confirmed booking and the restaurant was closed. Three staff were in the restaurant but did not come to the door or attempt to provide any explanation."

  • "Great addition to the neighborhood!! Cool space and vibe and the food was great and reasonably priced."

  • "Went to Gather this past week! The place looks awesome, very modern and typical of the Waterfront area restaurants. The drinks were okay, so don't expect Drink-like cocktails. The food was great, I ordered the pan roasted chicken and my date ordered the pesto penne. The chicken was cooked well and came on top of grits topped with habanero salsa. I tried a bite of the pasta and thought the pesto tasted well. I do think the service could have been much better but maybe it was someone new? Overall, it was good and definitely worth checking out."

  • "This was my second time, but first for Valentines day Went with another couple , everyone was happy with the food and drink waitress said everything was great to eat, but it would have been a little better if she helped us select a but more"

  • "Great restaurant, my girlfriend and I went for valentines day. Overall we had a really good time and the food was excellent. My only two complaints are that our server was somewhat impatient but I imagine valentines day can be stressful working in food service and he was probably just having a busy night, the other is that the tables where very close together. It was difficult to walk through the restaurant. Again, it's a really nice restaurant and I would definitely recommend it. It's located in District Hall which is a really interesting community workspace."

  • "Great food for a good value. It is a little on the expensive side, but it's not on the super luxury expensive so it's a great to night out type of restaurant. The food was unique and superb and the drinks were amazing."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Good atmosphere for meeting business colleagues or friends for a lunch. Good menu selection and the food was delicious. Service was a good pace and not rushed."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "I Got the beet and carrot salad. The chef seems to have completely missed the opportunity to season it. The octopus was delicious and tender. The fries were good. Our server didn't know what mignonette sauce was, so I didn't order the oysters--plus they only had one oyster--cotuit--to choose from. I would NOT recommends going there for oysters. Overall, food was ok, though I expected something slightly more interesting and it was just kind of ok."

  • "I was in the area for a nearby event and looked up restaurant options in the Seaport area online. Gather's menu offerings intrigued me, and I knew I had to try it. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and were seated promptly (despite being almost 30 minutes early for our reservation). I loved the simple, modern decor. To start, my boyfriend and I shared the duck tacos appetizer and the onion soup with oxtail. Both were delicious and very flavorful! I had the Short Rib with Sage Gnocchi for my entree, and my boyfriend had the Seafood Jambalaya. We were both very satisfied with our choices. The portions were satisfying, and we even had leftovers to bring home. I would definitely return to try more dishes the next time I'm in the area."

  • "The squid ink pasta with scallops, lobster and octopus was awesome!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Had been in once before and liked this place a lot. Went in on a sunday night with a group of 8 and were able to get a reservation right away which was cool - but the place was a little dead...overall good food though"

  • "I went with my boyfriend to Gather on Friday 2/7. From the service, ambience, and food everything was perfect. I would recommend the chicken waffles, any of the salads, the salmon, chicken, and banana split. Definitely go!!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Definitely would go back just to try something else off their menu. Some interesting options - fit for the "Innovation District" I guess. Portion sizes are small and prices on the higher side, from what i'm used to at least...My chicken and waffles appetizer was so fun and interesting but litlterally 4 teensy tiny bites! Ambience is okay, but you have to go through another room to get to the bathrooms, which is awkward when there's a business party going on! People were trying to network me on my way to go pee! Also they validate parking in a lot...but it's still $10..???"

  • "food was just ok. The burger wasn't the greatest quality of ground beef so it was a bit "grainy." Will go back and try something else."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We were looking for a casual place for dinner with friends and this fit our needs perfectly . The location and atmosphere were great, but more importantly the food was excellent! Would highly recommend this place!"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "My husband & I wanted to check out this new hotspot, other reviews were mostly positive so we were excited to check out Gather. We couldn't have been more disappointed. The restaurant is attached to an publicly accessible innovation space and they must have had an event that night because it was packed & extremely loud. There is absolutely no separation between the bar area & the seating area so we quickly realized that our table wasn't really ours as drunken twenty somethings began infringing on our space, leaving empty beer glasses on our table and even deciding to sit down and eat a pizza right next to me. The service was awful, the waitress literally forgot about our table 2x. Food was decent, but couldn't make up for everything else."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "My husband and I went for lunch on a Saturday, and it was very quiet , only 2 other tables. Nice open space with lots of windows .The food was very good. The Duck Taco appetizer is large and delicious. Tasted like Bbq to me. My husband had the grilled Octopus which he loved. It was very tender, it was served with mayo on the side which was not good, they need a better sauce for it. I got the mango/feta chopped salad which was very plain, one color and had no personality.The feta did not belong on this salad, needed goat cheese instead and many more colorful veggies . The salad was very beige. I would not recommend this salad. No Valet which may be a problem at night."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "We had brunch there shortly after it opened. The place was practically empty, but we enjoyed the ambiance (single big light room) and some of our food. We shared a hamburger and a caesar salad. The salad was just OK, and the burger was very good."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "For a restaurant that has just opened in the last few months, Gather was spot-on! The food was amazing (the Duck Tacos and the Grilled Octopus were spectacular), the waitress couldn't have been better, and the ambience was perfect. Can't wait to go again!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Not too many people seem to yet know about Gather but it's a gem and hopefully a sign of things to come in the Innovation District. There's a wide variety of food choices - perhaps because the restaurant is still figuring out what works. Everything my group of 7 had was delicious."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "I took several of my colleagues here on Sunday night. Everyone enjoyed it. It was a pleasant atmosphere and good food. The server was great -very friendly, easy going and helpful. Sometimes the service was a little slow. I highly recommend the lamb. Someone else in our group had the veal and really liked it. Be prepared to be very full by the end of your meal if you order either of these dishes. The octopus was a little tough that night (although it was highly recommended on Yelp). The bread pudding was delicious. The banana split was good (very classic) but could have used a little more ice cream."
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "Gather is slightly out of the way if you're coming from a downtown location but it was completely worth the trip. The food was intriguing (in a good way) and reasonably priced. The crowd really heated up around 7 and made for a great dining atmosphere. I will definitely be going to Gather again."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "Not sure when this place opened but YUM. Great spot to grab food and drinks - they had a great cocktail list! They have a patio area for outdoor seating so I will def keep this place in mind when spring comes back around!"

  • "Really enjoyed my time here. Its is going to an awesome spot when the warmer weather returns. Food and drinks were diverse and tasty i had the veal gnocci which was amazing, really enjoyed it. Service was attentive and knowlegable. Decor holds true to its name Gather floor plan is set up to cultivate conversation and new ideas."

  • "Comfortable food in a comfortable setting. Six of us had foods ranging from homemade chips with onion dip clam stew hamburger fish cake chicken wings pizza and fish and chips. (Sorry no comma on the keyboard.) Everybody was happy. All the meals were a titch fancier than they sound in a good way. Peach sangria and cosmos were a hit as well. My husband even liked his tiny beers. It is currently a quiet place but probably won't be for long. Small but light and airy inside with a flat screen to watch the Patriots win. Nice bar and distant harbor view looking past the ICA across the street."
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "The menu provides a wide range of options to suit everyone's needs. A good selection of starters and small plates are fun to share. The shrimp were a big hit. All of the entrees were great too."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "The food was fantastic but they haven't figured out the service yet. Water glasses left empty, no attention paid to the table."
