Utilizing techniques inspired by classic culinary craftsmanship, Gather in downtown Berkeley features organic local produce, pizzas, sustainable seafood, and humanely-raised meats that showcase the unique abundance of Northern California. We have a balance menu of meat and vegetarian offerings, craft cocktails, and local, sustainable wines. The experience is served up in a warm ambiance informed by honey hued reclaimed woods literally “gathered” from the surrounding area. Directly across from the UC campus, it is conveniently located with parking lot beneath the restaurant just 5 minutes from Zellerbach Hall and Berkeley Rep.

My two guests and I had a very good time. The server was very very good because she had really good suggestions and noticed that I was served the wrong drink. She fixed that right away.

My guests shared the duck dish along with the red wine suggestion. They loved it. They didn't expect the wine to be that expensive, but found it delicious.
My dish was creative and I would order it again.
We loved the dessert, cake with lime and cream.

The food was fresh and tasty as always. The service for the first time was not customer oriented. The restaurant did not have the usual sparkling water option as the machine was down. When I requested plain soda water from the bar I was told that was reserved for cocktails. Not friendly.

About half-full on a Thursday night. Little gems salad was large and overdressed but tasty. The duck for two people was very well done. Chocolate gelato made with coconut milk was rich, unctuous and delicious. The Merlot recommend By the waitperson was a little too big and alcoholic for the meal. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

All was great! Only small issue we had was having to wait 17mins ( I timed it)...but the server was very polite and apologized for the miscommunication between the team. They made up for it by getting our food and drinks to us in a extremely prompt time.

We'll be back for sure!

The service here is terrible. The guy gave us the wrong food multiple times, then made us give it back after we already started eating it. He actually made me put back the pieces of chicken from my plate back onto the serving plate for him to throw away after I had already taken a bite.

We sat at the bar before dinner, and had a great experience. The music was great, bartenders friendly and engaging, and it was overall great. Dinner was fantastic, as usual, as we got to share what we have grown to love with a friend from out of state....fantastic, as always!

I've been to this restaurant before and enjoyed the food. This time, I attended on Sat. at 11:45. The menu was still the "breakfast/brunch" menu, which I hadn't seen before.

The service is somewhat slow, but that wasn't a problem for us because we weren't in a hurry, but it's something to keep in mind.

They also have a tendency to want to take your plate away before you're finished.

But the food is excellent and I'd go back again.

Foremost the service was great! Enjoyed the veggie dinner served with artistic flair and light portions.
Although my cocktail took a while to receive, it was different in a good way and easy on alcohol. Nice ambiance and pleasant Hostess. Earthy options served with local ingredients. Note: if you want bread with dinner (I always do) they will bring you a big roll with butter for $2.00 extra.
We were seeing a comedy show at Zellerbach and brought our check quickly - nice wine list as well...

I am sorry to say that my tuna sandwich was completely overpowered by too much dill. Cappuccino was excellent.

Had Brussels sprouts appetizer and a $17 burger with fries, big mistake. Brussels sprouts were coated in a toffee-like sweetness, didn't work. Should've gone to In-n-Out for the burger.

Love, love, love Gather. My husband and I are never disappointed. Our only wish: that there was at least one more vegan entree option.

excessively slow service without apologies, and small portions, but good flavors. Best to eat a big snack before dining here un less you are really not hungry

Seated on time. Not rushed. Great food selection for brunch. Service was a little slow

Delicious classic eggs (poached medium perfectly) and bacon (nitrite free). Gluten free toast. Friend had the burger (free range quality). Wonderful service and across street from University. Also honey ginger is super delicious.

Street Parkimg can be challenging. If find a space remember to “feed the meter”. And parking garage on Kitridge. Place has great vibe and spirits too. “Clean” food.

Good but dissappointingly unremarkable. the ambiance, though trying hard with decorations and lighting, feels a bit cafeteria-like, certainly not on par with the prices. Service was lovely. We were sad the famous kale salad had been taken off the menu.

Truly delicious food and good service, but the music was way too loud for dining. When happy hour ended the music volume was turned way up and our table of 20 something’s couldn’t hear each other without almost shouting. Go early or not at all.
