Gather Ratings and Reviews
I went to gather with three friends to celebrate a birthday. Everyone enjoyed their meal and our server was super friendly and attentive. The drinks were odd - my friend ordered an old fashioned in which the bartender mashed the orange and cherry on bottom. The white sangria didn't taste like it has any alcohol but we still drank them. Despite these beverages we had a great experience and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for some good food and ambiance.
The menu is very appealing; from grilled octopus to chicken and waffles and lots in between. It turned out to be good, but not great. The short rib gnocchi was overpowered by rosemary but otherwise somehow under seasoned...chunks of beed alongside gnocchi but not wrapped together in a rich sauce as one might hope. The flat iron steak was perfectly cooked but also under seasoned. The roasted potatoes and the cauliflower Gratin were excellent, as was the polenta fries appetizer (though we wished the mushroom fondue was cheesier).
I’d return but only if it was convenient, mainly to try the chicken and waffles.
Work lunch-to celebrate holiday season
Food poor which is not my typical experience
Felt embarrassed selecting Gather
My guests had grilled cheese w bacon and each barely ate their sandwiches
I ordered rare salmon on a salad - salmon very over cooked on an overly refrigerated salad
Waitress oblivious to my guests’ dissatisfaction
We found the food to be quite good. However we were not too happy that the entrees were brought to the table even before we had finished the appetizers, and had to send them back. It was obvious they kept the dishes in the kitchen under heater for another 10 minutes, as the entrees were a little dried when served. Not only that, sadly there was no acknowledgement for this from our server or anyone else. Shame this kind of ruined what otherwise could have been an enjoyable evening.
Food was great, but over priced. Service wasn’t great...the server didn’t come to the table until 15 minutes after we’d been seated, and then seemed to have the rest of the meal orchestrated by a revolving group of other servers. The service was actually pretty meal ruining, but chances are it was just an off night for bother server and the restaurant.
The serving staff needed time to clear a table for our reservation, which was fine, but it took the waitress about 10 minutes to come by and take our drink orders. The restaurant was fairly busy but not busy enough to warrant this long of a wait. It also took a while for the waitress to stop by and check on us to see if we needed additional drink orders during our meal. Ambiance was great and the food is always pretty good, but would have had a better experience if the wait staff to be more on top of things.
Food was awesome, menu had a bit of everything but without being overwhelming. Service left something to be desired, though. Felt like we were always looking around for our waitress, the table was dirty with appetizer plates for about 10+ minutes after we finished eating, and my wife had to wait 15 minutes to get a glass of champagne refreshed. For a dinner and drinks that topped $300 for 4 people, i expect some better attention.
