Food and service were excellent! Definitely will go back!
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.
Very open and spacious with a modern style.
Everything was great, will definitely go back soon
Convenient spot in the Seaport. Food is decent but nothing to go out of the way for.
Had brunch, my omelette was cold and dry and the drinks weren’t great. The service was great, though.

Great service. Great food. Love the music and energy within the whole restaurant. I will definitely be back! Great scenery outside as well. Lot of nice areas to take photos and just walk around enjoy!
waiters were very nice and friendly! great food and quick service!
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.
Delicious charred octopus. Igloos have a minimum spend which they didn’t tell me until I arrived.
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.
Amazing view, great food, nice staff -
I’ll definitely be back.
Juliana the hostess is great and the server we had was impeccable. Felt incredibly welcomed and the food and drinks were fantastic.
Would absolutely recommend!
Good food good martini
MUST get the lychee martini. Pretzels were really good. Butternut squash salad was very refreshing
Okay was good but overpriced. Service was pretty bad though . Probably won’t go back .

The place and food was nice. Katia was such a nice servant but then we moved inside cause it was cold and the guy server wasn’t friendly.
Requested a patio seat outside and when we arrived they said I didn’t (despite it being in my request). Then waitress’s took 20 min to get us water then 30 after done eating to give us the check
Amazing food and amazing service.
I specifically wanted a waffle or pancake, they had neither despite putting the waffle menu on the table. Food was good but was disappointed I could not order what I intended.
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.
We made a reservation for a table top and was able to get into an igloo last minute. I got the chefs pasta which was a braised beef gnocchi dish and it was AMAZING. good vibe good music will definitely come back.
Nice and quiet place to eat, good vibe and good atmosphere!!! we love it!!!
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.
Great dinner! Our server, Jake, was fantastic! Definitely will be back
Excellent food, service, & ambience!! We will definitely be back!
Waitress very nice food ok over cooked over seasoned
Great place for brunch! Beautiful spot with tons of windows. Food is all really good, only thing we didn’t love was the french onion soup. But that’s one of my favorite things ever so I’m picky! Everything else was awesome. Definitely would go again.
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.
Great service and food.
We absolutely loved this place! Everything was amazing
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.
Great views, food, and service! Made my mom's birthday special
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.
