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.

It was a nice day so we were outside. Since we had a reservation, we didn’t need to wait that long. Waitress was nice and drinks were good. I gave the food a low score because I didn’t really get to taste it. I had the dine out menu so I had the salad, which was good. I got the chicken sandwich but I took one bite and ate a few fries. I wasn’t feeling that well so I didn’t eat it so I asked for a Togo box. Had the cake and I’m not a sweets person but it was ok. I ended up leaving my Togo plate and when I called back 10 mins after I left to come back to get it; they threw it out. So I can only judge the food on that one bite and 4-5 French fries I had. The bite was good and tasty. Wish I was able to eat it more of it but overall, I would def be back. I want to finish that sandwich lol

Not for those with allergies, bread and pasta are made offsite, so that also causes issues with anything fried. Due to such, we had to order something else off menu. Our food came before the alternative choice had even been made. They worked hard to get that order out quickly. Seemed like server forgot about a drink ordered. Service wasn’t great. Atmosphere and food were good.

Food was good, very cute place, but service was terrible. Half of the diners were served by one waitress and had eaten and left before the rest of us had even had our orders taken by the other waitress.

Took a long time to be greeted. Drinks were okay. Only good thing about the food was the chowder. Burger was cooked well, but had little to no seasoning. Probably wouldn’t eat here again, but the ambience is nice.

Food was fantastic, especially the grilled octopus! The greeter could have been more pleasant... maybe she was having a bad day. Regardless, still highly recommend this restaurant.

The place was a bit bipolar; during the work week it functions as a public workspace so the space feels like a work lounge. Food was pretty standard breakfast/brunch food, nothing special. Service was phenomenal. Our server was very friendly and dropped a tea from the bill just because he brought the wrong one initially. Honestly far better service than we've gotten at some far more upscale places in Boston.

Went for apps and drinks with a friend. The drinks were tasty but took a little while to receive them. The food was good overall- we got the chicken and waffle bites, hummus plate, and the harvest salad with salmon. Nothing too exciting but it all tasted pretty good. Overall, would recommend for drinks and a Covid friendly experience in a cool looking restaurant.

KISS THE CHEF!!!!!
My sisters and I came here for brunch and had the best time. The food was great and the mimosas were perfect.

Home fries come seasoned with peppers and onions.
The gravy for the waffles has a little kick but is yummy.

FYI: They do not have turkey bacon or sausage.

They advertised Elf brunch like it was this big event with activities and special things going on. There was nothing. The movie was playing in the other room with zero sound. The main room we were in there was nothing except trivia on the table. The food was excellent but there was no event and incredibly disappointing as we did switch restaurants to attend this event that didn't really exist. I also checked in with the host and she didn't check me in on Open Table so it appeared I never came. Server was alright a little pushy. My friend asked for a sample of beer to make sure she liked it and the server brought an entire glass as if she ordered it. Another friend asked for more coffee and was charged for two cups as it was not bottomless. The server should have said something to make sure as it is usually included. The only thing good about the experience was the excellent fresh and hot food. The rest was meh and the Elf event was terrible.
