Gather Ratings and Reviews
We are mostly vegan and we loved our food choices. The pizza was awesome! We arrived late for our reservation due to traffic and they were very accommodating in seating us as soon as possible. We also let them know we had en evening event to go to and they took our complete order in one and delivered all in perfect timing, getting us out with plenty of time to make our event. Still savoring the food.
I came here with my mom who enjoys great food but doesn't quite understand the small, cramped, hipster brunch spots of the Bay just yet. We both very much enjoyed our meals, the coffee was was great, the restaurant itself is beautiful and the service was phenomenal. I never felt like I was waiting for someone to walk by but I never felt rushed overly attended to.
Food was absolutely delicious, as usual. It was my first dinner back after almost 3 years, and Gather never disappoints. The service is impeccable, the setting acoustically pleasing - it's so difficult to find a restaurant where guests don't have to shout over one another to be heard.
Consistently good food and service. Friendly atmosphere and nice young crowd. Creative salads & appetisers .We really loved an excellent choice of Pizza’s varieties. Tasty salads with healthy ingredients. Lovely , attentive but not intrusive service. Will be back fir the holiday meal and would recommend to friends who appreciate a good creative food .
A great place for sharing plates. Everything was delicious! We had little gem salad, beets w/beet hummus, Brussels sprouts, mussels, a pizza with corn and sausage and a chickpea Panisse. I personally loved the flavors in the little gem salad, the mussels & the pizza but each dish had its strong fans!
Good vegan options; hoping they'll add even more vegan choices to the brunch menu.
Friendly and attentive service and a nice relaxed atmosphere that creates a comfortable environment for all.
Dishes reflect high quality of ingredients and skill of chefs.
Gather was decent and we will go back. The drinks were very special and above average in taste, unique ingredients and presentation. We ordered the Kale salad which tasted off. It tasted like cooking stock and had a wilted texture as well. The pizza was good. It had corn on top (which I loved) and was wood fired, but it did not blow my mind. Next time I will try two completely different items because neighboring tables had some delicious looking dishes. The menu was a little limited however, so we will see. I do believe the menu changes seasonally so maybe in a few months.
Food was good but literally had to 5 minutes to eat despite arriving at 5:20 to a fairly empty restaurant- putting our dinner order in right away, and telling our server we were trying to make a 7 pm theater curtain. Entrees arrived at 6:25. We paid, ate and were out the door by 6:35. That might be a personal record for me...though not how I like to enjoy a meal. Next time I'll know not to have my tickets at Will Call, and I'll probably pick a different place for dinner which is unfortunate because the food was quite good.
Gather has been a restaurant I used for special occasions in the past four years. In terms of food quality, it has never failed me. Yet the lat time I visited there I was disappointed by their service. We waited for a server come to our table for a quite while and didn't get the impression that we were well attended during our stay. I did not blame a particular server for the way we were treated. Rather, I'd like to encourage Gather to pay attention to every customer they have. I will definitely try the restaurant again but hope that I can get a better service next time.
Our third time to this restaurant. So beautifully and
farm to table fresh and lovely dishes.
Food and service really great, but we've noticed
the quantity has gone down drastically. My husband
is a big guy and it's never enough to fill him up for
the price. We can only afford this place on special
occasions and with a light belly.
