Fantastic service, great casual atmosphere for a get-together!
Beautiful setting and view of the Seaport District. Brunch menu was fun and the food was very good overall. We sat inside because it was a rainy day, but the restaurant also has outdoor seating that would be beautiful during the summer. Over-all it was a great dining experience and I'd recommend it!
Service was a little slow, but it was Saturday night. The food was outstanding, so: worth it. Great looking space, with excellent people watching and a superb view. Would totally recommend to anyone, and will definitely be back.

Highly recommend the polenta fries! Great service and nice atmosphere - lots of natural light during the day.

The venue for Gather was pretty nice. Big windows, concrete floor, sort of trendy furniture. Some parts of the restaurant looked very nice and others looked hand-made in a not so great way (e.g., the ceiling had an installation of hanging bulbs, where there were uneven loops of extension cords held with cord gatherers). The food was okay, but you were paying for the view and atmosphere. For example, I had an omelet but the cheese in the omelet separated rather than melted... things like that you don't really expect to find in a restaurant. The staff was very nice and energetic, they made it a pleasant experience. I think the prices were reasonable for the area, but I don't think I would go back as the food was just okay and Boston has enough restaurants I'd like to try before returning here.

Totally enjoyed our meal. For an appetizer, we experimented with the Yuka Fries with Aioli Guacamole - yum! Wine selection was perfectly acceptable.
Hello- We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us, and of course, the newly added Yuka Fries! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We hope to see you again sometime soon. Best, Grace
Interesting location. Oysters were good. Salads are big. Nothing inventive or exciting. Pretty subpar. Service was really lacking.
Hi Stacy, Thank you for the review. We're so glad you enjoyed the oysters. Our deepest apologies for the service. If there's any additional information you're willing to share about the date/time of your visit, so we can investigate further, it would be greatly appreciated. Apologies again, Grace
Delightful and vibrant restaurant in the Seaport neighborhood.
Hi Larry, Thank you! We're glad you enjoyed the space, and we hope to see you again sometime soon! Best, Grace
Would have liked more egg options for brunch. Poached eggs were overcooked. Lots of good bacon, however.

Your review has been shared with management and our chef so we can work on making those improvements to our menu.

My food came out and didn’t have an item that was supposed to be there and it was quickly resolved. Beyond that one slip up my experiences at Gather have always been great.
Food is great as always. The lobster cobb salad has so much lobster meat and other ingredients! Overall the prices are a bit high, but not uncommon for being in the Seaport area. Our service was slow at some points — waited 15 minutes for a bottle of wine! Did not ruin the experience though and would definitely recommend.

Great selection of beers on tap. The polenta & queso was a unique twist on the classic cheese fries and we were very pleasantly surprised! Great service, my sister and I decided to split the burger and the server brought it out already cut in half on separate plates for our convenience. It was fantastic, 10/10 would again!
Hi Alyssa, Thank you! We're so glad you enjoyed the service you received, and of course, the Polenta & Queso. It was definitely a unique addition to our menu, and we're happy it has been so well received. We hope you'll visit us again sometime soon. Best, Grace
While I enjoyed the ambiance and drinks the food was bland and over priced. Go for drinks

Very nice quaint place! Visited during lunch. Would like to visited after work to check out the vibe.
Casual, fun spot for lunch. Great location, outdoor seating available in warmer weather.
Burger was delicious! Service was outstanding. Bloody Mary was way too salty for our taste, but the server graciously took it off our bill.
Hello- Thank you! Your feedback about our location, outdoor seating, service, and of course, your Burger, are very much appreciated! We apologize for the salty Bloody Mary, and are glad your server took it off of your bill. We hope to see you again sometime soon! Best, Grace
My entree came raw, so I wasn’t pleased. :(

Nice venue for a casual date after work. Our food was deliciously prepared - just wished the portions were a little more manageable. Probably the best coffee after a meal I’ve had in a restaurant rather than a cafe. We’ll be back, most likely after a visit to the nearby ICA.
Hi Asmaa, Thank you for the feedback and kind words about your meals! I have shared your comments about portion sizes with our chef so we can work to make the necessary adjustments. We're so glad you enjoyed your post-meal coffee, and look forward to seeing you again next time you're in the area visiting the ICA. Best, Grace
According to their website they have a dessert menu. I wouldn't know because my waitress didn't bother to ask if I wanted dessert (I did). That may sound like not a big deal except that I always assume that means they're encouraging me to leave so they can give the table to someone else. Rude. The food I did have was good though.
I was underwhelmed by my experience at Gather - I felt that the menu was not very cohesive (random genres thrown together) and nothing I ate was phenomenal given how costly it was. The service was attentive, though I was disappointed when a dietary restriction could not be accommodated after initially being told that it was possible.
Great location and great food! We went for dine-out Boston and really enjoyed the food! The drink selection was great too. Our waiter was super sweet and made sure we were well taken care of. I'd definitely come back and recommend for others to come back. The District is a unique space and Gather's ambiance is very inviting. You can watch people playing with the prisms and during the day you can see boats coming in and out!
Brunch with my sisters. I had the blueberry pancakes, topped with fresh whipped cream and maple syrup. It was the best pancakes I had in a while. The service was adequate and cost was fair.
Really enjoyable brunch. Great light in the dining room. Small, but interesting menu. Hip vibe.
More of a bar atmosphere rather than “dining”. Loud due to the big crowd around the bar, we were the only ones seated. Drafty due to high ceiling (it was winter) but would be fabulous in summer. Food was great! Duck tacos and lobster roll was one of the beat (and I have had them everywhere). Fries were great as were portion. Just didn’t care for the atmosphere.
Wonderful clam chowder, friendly service!
Service was slow. The food was okay. Not flavorful.
We had an issue with one food item, but the server did not hesitate to exchange it and comped is more than expected. Good people and normally great food.
I loved the espresso martini! They had a cool menu with a wide range of options, and plenty of gluten free options were labeled right on the menu. The hummus plate is a great starter
Great apps and dinner!
I went to Gather with my family to celebrate my father and brothers' birthdays. I had notified the restaurant via OpenTable that it was their birthday, notified the hostess when we checked in, and my mother mentioned it to the server in hopes they would do something special - even just a candle. Even though we ultimately ordered multiple desserts, no acknowledgement was made by the restaurant that we were there celebrating multiple birthdays. Also, my mother's martini came out close to room temperature. Other than that, the food was good and the restaurant is a good value for the area. I would go back and give them another shot, but I was still disappointed in the service.
Went here for a date night. It is not very romantic therefore we were surprised how not romantic it was.
It would be great for friends get-together.
Cool place, loved the open concept. Would try it again in the summer since there are so many windows and a large patio
Food was great, drinks were good. Service definitely could have been better for the price that you’re paying on the menu. We waited a while to get our food order in, left us with a table full of plates and waiting for the check for a while, but all in all it was pretty good.
Small menu but everything we had was great! The steak frites was prepared perfectly and the gnocci bolognese was delicious!
The French Toast sandwich was delicious!
the drinks and food were excellent. The ambiance and service were outstanding as well.
I had the oysters, and they were so sweet and briny, i tasted the ocean! and the korean steak was perfect. My husband had the bolognese and he would not share it with me!
Nice ambiance, quiet. Food was good, dessert was amazing!!
Great breakfast and service was good! Limited items on the brunch menu but it was Waffle Sunday!
