Fun for a night when we were seeing a show at the Walker. Pricey, but they didn't mind us sharing an entree.

We ate dinner at Gather for the John Zorn birthday extravaganza. The fish tacos were nice. The coctails were good, but not outstanding. The salmon was outstanding. It was one of the best salmon dishes I've had. The salmon was cooked perfectly, and the farro salad with lemon vinegrette was the ideal compliment. The mushroom ravioli was good, but couldn't compare to the salmon. We were seated looking at Lyndale and Hennepin - great views of downtown. Overall, a tasty, fun experience.

We were welcomed warmly! The service was excellent - very attentive to each of us and as a group. Even as we lingered long after the check was closed, we were not rushed and were served water and coffee. Gather helped us create a memorable family occasion.

Best View of Basilica
They honored my request of the preferred seating which is the best seat at the restaurant. The server was attentive and we had a very
nice small farewell get together with our friend. I recommend to take out of town guests to the Gather for the great Minneapolis view.

there is wonderful food+service
there is wonderful food+service located within the walker art center! located above the main entry on hennepin avenue, (take the steps up toward the mcguire theater). the decor is simple and soothing - - open view of the kitchen area and a large corner window exposing loring park+neighboring historic buildings; the size and lay-out of the dining area is balanced between open tables and banquette seating, (the scale of the place is very pleasing). everything we tried tasted wonderful and presentation is clean, open and modern. the service is excellent - - an entire team delivers all of the food to your table when ready, (no need for the polite pause to start your meal), when finished the team removes all plates as well.

Great service, view, and food!
We were a larger group, separate checks, and asked for all kinds of special accomodations. The wait staff were supremely helpful and friendly about it. We got great service all night long. Delicious food and great view to downtown as the nighttime lights came up. Even have the outdoor balcony if the weather is right. A terrific spot.

Empty plate dropped
Everything was great. Our server dropped a empty plate and kept apologizing multiple times. It made a little noise, no food was lost, not a big deal. She was floored when I left a large tip. Epode have to understand you leave a tip on service and food, both were outstanding! We will go back.... Soon! Everything on the menu was excellent. It is difficult for me to recommend items since the three of us ordered almost every item on the small plate side and 5 entrees. If I really had to choose it would be the chicken. It was marvelous. Enjoy!

Nice to find that D'Amico is continuing the high quality cuisine I enjoyed here previously when this space was 20/20.

I took a date here this past sunday. It was pretty great. The bar tender made some really nice cucumber lemonaid mojitos that we sipped on. The menu was unique and interesting. I ordered the duck french dip and it was an experience, never had a duck sandwhich before so I don't have a lot to go off, but this duck sandwhich was a little greasy (expected from duck) but otherwise delicious! My date had the fish taco and that was fresh and a good portion size, very tasty to boot. I was impressed. The wait staff seemed a little uninterested and meloncholy but otherwise the the experience was a good one. If you can get a window table its a nice view too!

Eat with Art
These days it seems every serious art museum boasts a restaurant to be proud of. From MoMA, to Chicago to the Kemper in Kansas City to Gather at the Walker, you find wickedly intelligent yet utterly unpretentious cuisine. From a great table we enjoyed the view as the park filled with an eclectic assemblage of humanity for the annual Pride event. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly -- and on a Sunday, no less. (Actually, Sunday lunch/brunch seems to be a prime time for these museum eateries). Very pleased and would return despite the current construction mess and temporary closing of several wings.

Family friendly with wow factor
My kids and I were excited to try the edible spoon bridge dessert, which three of us shared. We were dazzled by the favors and presentation of all the dishes. The kid meals were reasonably priced ($5.00) and generous in portions. The kids get funky crayons and coloring picture to kep them occupied. The freshness of the food, the view and that dessert will bring us back there again and again.

Go to Gather now
Gather has great food with super friendly service. Gather's Chef Josh Brown creates tasty dishes that surprise and delight. Make sure to get a reservation as Gather is a popular place. Gather's First Thursday events from 5-7pm are a must as Chef Brown invites other local Chef's to share their best dishes. Go to Gather now.

Can't beat view & service
Friends and I gathered at Gather for the first time . It was delightful. We weren't aware of the great happy hour offerings, so we ordered an array of small plates. All were do good, and our server was the best. We'll be back for sure.

Service and music
Waiter exceptional. Music inside was really loud and not very sophisticated for a museum environment. Food was unique and gourmet without going beyond.

A favorite spot
Love the view from the outdoor dining patio. The 1st Thursday's have very nice happy hour specials. Food is delicious and waiters are very good at what they do.

great scenic view
great food, amazing views of the city, and excellent service. The waitresses/waiters were very helpful

We had the halibut and the slow-cooked salmon. By husband and I shared each entree and could not decide which one was better. Portions were on the small side but that meant we really had to savor every bite. My only complaint was that they did not set the table with a spoon so that I could get every drop of the broth that came with the halibut!
For dessert the Spoon and Cherry was truly eye candy. The olive oil cake with tomatoes and yogurt was unusual and good.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came for lunch on a Wednesday. The servers were very pleasant and attentive. The bison burger special was special. They were good enough to tell us how it was prepared. Their pickles are delish - we asked for and got more. Along with the drinks and dessert it was memorable. We will be back.

Great Lunch Place
The food was amazing. Our favorites were the Fish Tacos and the Vietnamese Pancake....in fact we skipped dessert and ordered a 2nd Fish Taco.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
perfectly pleasant lunch
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.

Great Happy Hour
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!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
I enjoy Gather at least once a month, usually on the first thursday of the month when they do the chef specials. Its always a great time, with fun sample plates and happy hour deals till 7.

Excellent service and view
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.

Josh Brown continues to deliver
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!

Our server was amazing. Not only was she prompt buIt friendly and helpful as well. I would definitely come back and ask for her as well.
