Diner Reviews
  • "I understand why opentable is offering 1000pts and the reason to dine here on a Wednesday evening. We sat inside and the place was empty other then one other couple. And it looked as if the outdoor seating was around 1/3 capacity. With this being said you would think that the service would have been a little more attentive. Food is okay, nothing to write home about, typical fare for a restaurant that does not specialize in any particular cuisine. The menu is not much different then what you would find at an Applebee’s, or Chilies’, They are in competition with establishments like Bella Vita, Eddy’s, Stone Creek and C.R. Hero’s in this area, and The Gathering Place is lower on the list for all aspects of dining."

  • "We were there with friends on a Sunday evening and there were very few customers. Food was very good and service was excellent. Very large portions and reasonably priced. Obviously, noise level was very quiet with so few people around. Will certainly go back during peak period to evaluate that scenerio."

  • "We had lunch on a beautiful afternoon. They had some nice light summer fare which tasted very fresh. Amazingly even though the patio is near the road it was quiet and very pleasant. Big trees, nice flowers, great atmosphere. The chicken salad was appropriately priced and delicious. Homemade slaw and chips and warm naan bread made the meal a bit more special than your typical mid-priced restaurant lunch."

  • "We took extended family for a Fathers' Day special that was advertised, and were disappointed to find the special was not offered until after 4pm. The special was advertised in fliers and on Open Table; it was even included in our email confirmation. Our server said other people had complained as well but did nothing about it. We stayed and ordered from a lunch menu; food was so-so, overpriced, small portions. One sandwich arrived without the proper ingredients, another main course salad arrived 5 minutes after the rest of the party had been served. The place was virtually empty (small wonder) and yet service was at a snail's pace."

  • "Food was fine...nothing to get excited about. They were great at keeping drinks refilled. Food came out very slowly, even though it wasn't very busy."

  • "I liked the look and feel of The Gathering Bistro & Pub. Clean, Friendly vibrant atmosphere. Lots of seating available, We had no wait at 7:30pm on a Friday night. Seems that everyone up in that area are late diners because it got busier as we sat there. I live too far away to make it a regular stop though. Food was average to slightly above average. Service staff was attentive without being intrusive."

  • "My boyfriend and I came to The Gathering Friday 3/14 and the hostess was wonderful, super sweet girl and did a great job under pressure. Unfortunately it took almost 15 minutes before we even got a server, but the girl we ended up with was fabulous. We were so pleased with her and it made up for the long wait time. We do not live in Geist, but I'm sure we will come back to the Gathering if we get the same server and host. Thank you!"

  • "The food was above average for a Pub/Bar environment. Unfortunately the service was sub par and too far to drive for that type of experience. The first drinks we ordered came out wrong. Never got a refill on water, soda, or coffee. They didn't seem to be understaffed. That fact remains that first impressions are lasting and we won't be going back. The bright spot was the food. Service can always be up and down, good and bad, but when you have new potential customers there for the first time during a promotional period, " which was the Northside eats promo" you might expect to have a better experience."

  • "We thought menu was priced high and did offer unique dishes but not what we really wanted. There was a high noise level."

  • "Nice people. Nice location (for us). Hit the wine bargain night so got a deal there. Crab & asparagus soup was VERY good! Then the mains arrived. Snapper just laid there. The Clincher was average at best. The sides were below average - escalloped potatoes and risotto. I'm not sure we'll find our way back, but wouldn't be opposed to it. Just OK overall... I wish them luck because I really like the idea of what they appear to be trying to do there. They had an acoustic duo getting ready to play in the bar - that's a positive too..."

  • "Took my Family to celebrate my birthday after having a company Christmas party there before and got introduced to this restaurant . The food is excellent ,the menu had plenty if choices even for the vegetarian in my family . Service is great , ambiance even for a large setting the way it's decorated and options of light as well as the fireplace could almost be called romantic , especially for a bistro . We were able to have a conversation due to the bar being divided from the dining area. We will most certainly return and maybe even on a weekend night to take part if the live Entertainment."

  • "Valentine's Day special five-course menu. Although the food was mostly good, the veal entree was, at best, nondescript. It could have been pork or cardboard. The real problem was the service. The meal took almost three hours. They tried to serve the entree before the appetizer, and the desert before the entree. This may be a good place for their regular menu (people ordering off of the regular menu came and left while we were waiting for food), but for this special occasion it was not positive."

  • "They had a special menu that night and the food was amazing. The time it took to get our food was unreasonable, but given that it was Valentines day, it gave me and the other half time to talk between courses. They were very busy that night and trying something new so I would cut them some slack. We'll go back again."

  • "Not enough wait staff. Took too long for drink orders and it took over an hour for our appetizer order."
