Only issue was with the greeter or host: we made the reservation with open table about 15 minutes in advance. When we came, we were told since we just made the reservation, they couldn't seat us right away. I could understand if they told us they were unexpectedly busy and we had to wait. But to say that we didn't wait long enough before making the reservation is absurd! We have done this frequently in the past: if the app allowed the reservation, then we shouldn't have been insulted.

Dont pass on the charred octopus or the yuca fries on the apps. Rib gnocchi was good but was a little bit soggy. Ambience and drinks are on point
Service is exceptional

The gumbo lacked enough broth, seasoning and rice.
There was was too much short rib and not enough gnocchi in the short rib gnocchi. It was very balanced.
It was pricey in my opinion but the portions were large. The atmosphere could be more intimate.

We were greeted by some very cool industrial decor upon arriving. The meal was fabulous! We ordered the SHORT RIB GNOCCHI and CHICKEN ANDOUILLE SAUSAGE flatbread with a side of CHEESY CAULIFLOWER GRATIN. The short rib was melt in your mouth goodness. The portions were generous and the bar was a good pour. I am looking forward to going back and trying the outdoor seating.

The Seaport area of Boston has a lot of restaurants to choose from these days and I'm slowly making my way around to all of them. Gather was a lovely choice for brunch. The food was very good and I like the open airy feeling of the space.

Great location in the Seaport district but less cheesy than the typical restaurants which are right on Seaport Blvd. Menu items are priced well and there is enough variety to please most parties plus a solid craft beer selection. I particular appreciated the honesty of our server when I asked for her opinion on some menu options I was considering - it's often hard to get an honest opinion and I felt like I could trust my server's recommendations. That fact alone would give me reason to return.

This was a nice place with good service and decent food. The octopus was really excellent. The rest was very good. The service was also very good. The place was VERY loud though - it made it hard to hear each other - this much very much in part due to a big party happening outside the window on the lawn with a loud DJ. I would definitely go back though, so it wasn't really a big issue for me.

Had brunch there last weekend for my daughter's birthday. We sat outside and our waitress was wonderful. The food was good but I felt the menu was limited for a brunch menu. We enjoyed the dishes we ordered and the portions were large. The waitress even gave my daughter a little treat for her birthday, which we appreciated it. Her service made the experience.

Host was MIA for 20min and all the other staff ignored the line of people until we asked what was happening. Saw 2 tables of people seated waiting 10-15min for waitstaff and no one showed and they left. Probably just understaffed but it was a Saturday so they really should’ve stepped it up!

Portions were tiny but honestly that was a good thing because the food tasted really bad. Streak frites came with five thin slices of steak and 8 yuka fries for 27 bucks. I’d rather eat those 50 cent banquet meals you get out of a freezer section at stop and shop than waste my time and money at this hippie joint

Food was good. Loved the open air and energy of the space. Neighborhood is great.

They should work on dishwashing... wine glasses, utensils... not a good first impression to ask for a clean wine glass and then still get a dirty one... probably not dirty but cloudy, finger prints, streaks...etc

Still, overall, got past the glass, especially since I finished it, and that made everything better....we enjoyed ourselves.

The food was excellent--we ordered 5 different dishes for brunch, and all were terrific. We also ordered a fruit plate to share among six adults. The fruit was beautifully arranged on a large plate, and included pineapple, honeydew melon, papaya, watermelon, and blueberries. There was plenty to share, and all the fruit was ripe and tasty! The waitstaff and management couldn't have been nicer to us. We had reservations for six, but they had planned us for a high table (e.g. with bar stools). I had failed to tell them that we also had a 7 month old baby with us. They immediately rearranged two smaller low tables for us at a window, and brought an extra chair for us to place the baby "bubble seat" on, next to her Mom and Grandma. Everyone said how much they enjoyed the experience and we do plan to go back soon!
