Diner Reviews
  • "Four of us came to dinner on a Thursday night for the happy hour. We enjoyed the free tasting flight of a featured brewery, then ordered our drinks. Two of us enjoyed the house red for $5 per serving. The other two continued to drink beer at happy hour prices. We ordered all four of the small plates (at a very discounted, $5 price apiece). They were all delicious. We look forward to returning."

  • "This was my second first Thursday and for some reason the staff service was terrible. We were completely ignored for about fifteen minutes and finally got our drinks at the bar instead. Last time was better so maybe they were just off their game. "

  • "Food quality and service were not great when we visited for Sunday lunch while visiting the museum. Grilled sandwich our daughter ordered was not well grilled, still chunk of cold cheese in the middle. Potato chips were so salty. Upgraded french fries were like frozen kind quality. Salmon crude is not really crude to my standard. Over cured with soy sauce aka "tamari". Regards to service, only one server for the entire restaurant on Sunday lunch hours. More than 10 minutes waited until we were attended to order. Our server then never returned until we requested the bill. Location is excellent but I prefer the museum cafe over this restaurant for the quality and the service. "

  • "Went to this restaurant for a friend's b-day. Unfortunately, everything I had was bad. Starting out with the cappuccino -- not well made, to my entrée -- grilled fish tacos -- not grilled (cubed in tiny cubes, with some mild tasteless sauce on it), not much food, and tasteless. Completely tasteless. For dessert, the apple cake -- again, tasteless, with a sauce that was tasteless. It was as though they had frozen it, brought it out and microwaved it. It also had a strange consistency, with little decorative lumps of gelatin on the side, that only had texture. No flavor. It was a bad meal. The service was good. Nice atmosphere. My friend chose restaurant, so i did not ask her about her meal."

  • "My partner and I have been eating here consistently for the past year or so. We are never disappointed. We bring friends every month and recommend to those who can't make it in our large group. The guest chefs every month really add a nice touch to an already superb menu. And after lunch or dinner you can check out the galleries!"

  • "Four of us went during the 2013 showing of the Arrow Awards, and we all ended up ordering one thing or another from their list of "British" items that were available during the month of December. None of us had ever been to Gather before then, so it's impossible to compare their normal menu, but none of us were very impressed with what we had that day... especially for the price. (By the time the dust settled, the bill was somewhere between $35 and $40 per person, with tip.)"

  • "Went to Gather before the British Arrow Awards. Had several of the British specials including scotch egg, bangers and mash, and the cheddar soup. I also had the sweet potato gnocchi. Everything was delicious. I was especially impressed with the scotch egg as they used quail eggs and give you a portion of three. If you've ever had a scotch egg you know that they can be heavy and very filling. By using quail eggs Gather found the perfect size so that you can concentrate on the flavors not whether you can finish it. I will return but only for special occasions as my pocketbook can't handle those prices very often."

  • "Food was outstanding. Loved the British theme during the British Arrow Awards. Salads were fresh and lovely dressings. Nice wines by the glass. Enjoyed the curry, the fish and chips, as well as the Scotish Eggs. View of downtown Minneapolis at night is gorgeous. Service was exceptional on a very busy Friday night. Heated underground parking was hugely appreciated."

  • "I headed to Gather after viewing the British Arrow Awards and the dinner was a perfect finale to a fantastic British evening. The special items available for the awards were absolutely delicious, but the other menu items looked just as satisfying. The dimly light, intimate setting was perfect, topped off with a gorgeous view of downtown Minneapolis. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "We were looking forward to eating there as it had such a good reputation. We found the food overpriced for the quantity and quality of it: the Ploughman plate was so small and not exceptionally British for the occasion, the fish tacos were very dry and did not taste much. We found the food overpriced for what we did get in return."

  • "Made a reservation on OpenTable and got a beautiful table by the window. The food was unremarkable to bad...and expensive. Not a good combo. Fish & chips: batter dark on outside , not cooked on inside. Chips were mostly overdone. In hindsight, we should have sent it back. The fettuccini was dull--no one flavor showing through and no brightness...shrimp were not deveined --at $17 for a lunch portion. The chicken was said by a fellow diner to be delicious. But, geez, at those prices, each dish should shine! Our waitress brought us someone else's bill that had already been paid...I considered....but the dine and dash is for younger folk. Won't be back."

  • "Took advantage of the special English-centric menu at Gather in the Walker Art Center in association with the British Ad showings. Terribly over-priced!"

  • "We had a wonderful experience at Gather. Our waitress was very helpful. She reminded us about the Happy Hour specials, recommended the incredibly good french fries, and generally took very good care of us. It was noisy but we were seated in a corner in front of the windows so we didn't mind too much. The view from there is scenic--churches, Loring Park, etc. Our entrees were delicious."

  • "The food, the ambiance & the view were all wonderful. I wish I could say the same for service. My wife enjoyed her glass of wine, but when her empty glass was removed there was no offer of an additional beverage. After we finished the elevated scotch eggs we were provided with a bread plate, but the side plates were not replaced & we had to ask the server. When the entrees arrived the server realized that the order was incorrect, put my wife's plate & took my plate back to the pass. When the server returned to apologize my wife had to hand her the plate she had dropped. Only at the end of the meal was an apology offered, by which point we were disappointed enough to cross Gather off of our list despite it's attributes."

  • "Having a British-themed dinner here before the British Arrow Awards show is a favorite family tradition. This year, our favorite item was the trifle, rich and creamy with lovely fresh berries. Really, the only drawback is the noise level, which is higher than I'd like even when the place isn't completely full. As always, service is the best feature: our server took the initiative to ask right away if we were heading for a show so she'd know our time frame, and was consistently attentive and pleasant. We certainly plan to return next year."

  • "I specifically asked if a vegan diet would be workable both when I made the reservation and when they called to confirm. 'just let your wait staff know our chefs will work with you'. At dinner the solution was eat a salad."

  • "My husband and I ordered from Gather's 'Walker Pub' menu. I had bangers and mash, he had fish and chips. Bangers were totally great. Mash was creamy and delicious. Fish and chips were just okay. Our cocktails were brilliant though. He had the royal tea and I had a pear martini. Both awesome."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "Service was excellent and wines were of quality. The noise level diminished what would be otherwise a relaxing and perhaps even a romantic experience. Price was steep, but that is to be expected considering the owners and the location. Would not recommend it as a go-to spot, only when visiting the Walker."

  • "The GATHER provides a variety of treats, many on the menu and the view of the snowy city skyline. The handmade fettuccine noodles were very delicate served with tender shrimp in a tomato broth and the bison burger is a favorite with light crispy chips. Of course the desert ginger apple cake with toppings finished off a lovely meal. We received good service and noted attentive management oversight."

  • "Overall, great, but way too noisy. We were anxiouos to leave so we could stop shouting across the table. The above rating for 'noise level" is filled out as "energetic" even though it was not, it was tooooo noisy. I would tell that to those asking about the restaurant, though everything else would get a good review. When people dine they expect to be able to converse easily."

  • "We had a great time dining at Gather before going to see the British Arrow Awards on Saturday night. The service was excellent, the food was interesting and very tasty. I would love to go back to try the regular menu at Gather. The waitress went to great lengths to split our bill between the 3 couples at our table but I noticed afterwards that I was charged for an extra glass of wine and she didn't give my $1 discount that we were supposed to get with our ticket to the show. Hopefully one of the other couples was charged for one less glass of wine :)"

  • "The staff were very friendly and accommodating (both on the phone and in person) to our group of twelve, and they made sure we were not late for the Arrows screening at Walker Cinema. We were seated at the corner table surrounded by huge windows overlooking the Basilica and Loring Park. Absolutely lovely view, even on an ice-crusted sub-zero night. The food and cocktails were generally very good, though I understand the menu and chef change regularly, so not much point in reviewing individual dishes."

  • "Quality ingredients, thoughtful combinations and fabulous service make this Walker / D'Amico "hideaway" a destination dining experience. Wish it were occasionally available on a Friday or Saturday night like it is during the British Advertising Awards. Fun beers, bangers and mash, scotch eggs and curry. Very fun!"
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "If you plan ahead and make a reservation between 5 and 7 the happy hour is a great way to relax after work. All the small plates are included as well as many drinks. The menu changes each month when they bring in a new chef so don't count on something being there each time. The wait staff are very friendly and accommodating, there are extra tables set out for people who don't have reservations but the wait can be long. If you come the first Thursday of the month you will get to sample the chef plates for free. I have only come for the happy hour and had the small plates so I cannot rate the rest of the menu. If you are looking for great service, delicious food and reasonable prices this is a place for you to try!"

  • "Had a wonderfully tasty and beautifully presented beet salad for lunch after wandering the art galleries. The beets were perfectly cooked and the salad was a lovely composition of textures and flavors (and nutrition!). Prosecco was presented in a beautiful glass and was perfect pairing with the salad. Server was attentive, friendly and helpful. Perfect, . . . well, the only thing that would have made it better was that I would have loved to be looking out the windows, but, alas, too many folks already there."

Their pickles are delish - we asked for and got more. Along with the drinks and dessert it was memorable. We will be back."
