We were looking for a spot in the Seaport and went based on the reviews. It would probably have been better to go for drinks and a snack. The menu is small. We ordered the hummus plate and the dill pickle flatbread. The hummus plate was good and the handmade sweet potato chips addictive. The flatbread description was interesting but the execution was a miss for us. The draft beers were good. We ate inside and the music was pumped up even though there were only a few tables seated and it was hard to hear. Not horrible but nothing to write home about.

Beautiful patio spot in seaport! The food and drinks were good but pricey for the portions. Our server was very kind but only refilled our waters once. The music was a fun pop vibe and both the inside and outside of the restaurant looked great.

Food was sub par at best , for $30 steak I didn’t expect it to be slathered with “steak sauce “ which tasted like thinned out ketchup and bbq combo , server showed up and I didn’t see him again when we needed him
I asked for salt to try and help the mashed potatoes had to chase down another server still didn’t bring it in the end I went to the seating host and was given salt and pepper packets , for the prices We Atleast expected salt and pepper , the Cajun Mac lacked all things Cajun , shrimp was under seasoned and drowned in whatever sauce it was cooked , i like the concept of the space but not to dine , this place is located in between some of seaports best restaurants and did NOT DELIVER , no need to gather here!for food ....

Not the best. Fine for a quick drink/app, but don't make this your primary destination for the evening. This place always has openings on the patio (probably because people come here once and never go back). We booked a table outside for 4 people on Saturday, service was very slow and the food/drinks just aren't worth the money. Our waiter had a training server with him and he was completely demeaning towards her the entire time. I honestly wanted to pull him aside and mention how off-putting his behavior towards her was. Everyone at our table was very uncomfortable. I also watched another guest completely fall out of his chair after being over-served. I felt terrible for the table next to us who had to wait 10 mins for waters and 20+ mins for drinks after their wings arrived (plus a tray of waters dumped over the table). Just a weird experience overall. I have many years of experiencing serving, bartending and managing restaurants under my best and it's clear there is a disconnect between the owner/management team and the service staff (it's all about proper training and staffing). Like I said, I might come back for a drink outside with very low expectations.

This was the WORST service I’d ever received at a restaurant. My servers name was Angela so I would recommend if you get her, run. Me and my family had be sat down for 20 minutes before some and to greet us which was only after I got up to tell the hostess we needed a server. The appetizers took about 20 minutes to come and we didn’t receive plates for the appetizers until after we finished them *face palm*. After this, our entrees took an additional 45 minutes to come out. On top of this, the waitress never even offered us anything but water and seemed to have an attitude with us the entire time.

I just started going out to restaurants again, and Gather was a fantastic reintroduction to indoor dining. The food was beyond fantastic and the drinks were amazing. Our server seemed to have an incredibly large amount of tables for just one person to cover, but I suspect we're all just trying to figure this out after being closed for so long. Even though he was very busy, he was still kind, courteous and great overall.

We dined on a Sunday evening. When I went to check in at the host stand, they informed me that they were closing at 7 despite taking my reservation for 6:30. It kind of set off the whole evening and made us feel rushed. Regardless our server was nice and the food was good. The mac and cheese in particular was a standout as were the salmon tacos.

The service was amazing, I really enjoyed our waitress however, I was not impressed with the food. My table ordered the basic breakfast and chicken and waffle sandwich. The potatoes were so greasy and soft they left an oil film in my mouth after eating. The bacon was super greasy as well. As far as the chicken sandwich, I opted out of the white gravy sauce as it appeared to be too thick in the pictures on the website, and the chicken itself was incredibly soft (in some places it looked just barely cooked through) and I was expecting a fried chicken where I received a chicken breast that seemed to be friend in just bread crumbs. Overall, I will not be returning because I simply was not impressed by the food.

When we walked in the door the first thing we noticed was the very dirty carpeting in all areas of room. We almost left but then the waitress welcomed us and she was very nice and informative so we decided to give Gather a try. Our drinks arrived first and my Diet Coke was awful. I was given a second one but that one was undrinkable too so the waitress offered to take it off our tab. I thought that was the least she could do. The food was okay but nothing memorable. Perhaps Gather would be a great bar but if you want a good restaurant please go elsewhere.
