Contemporary Italian
Gather opened in September 2018 and is located at the base of the innovation Center. Gather is a neighborhood Korean Italian restaurant that draws from both owners Chef Sung Ji Park and Luigi Coccaro’s heritage. The food draws from Sung Ji Park’s traditional and, not-quite-traditional dishes he grew up eating with his family, while also paying tribute to his decade of culinary experience in fine Italian dining. Gather draws from both of Chef Sung Ji Park and Luigi Coccaro’s family connection as well, and was designed as a place where family, friends and collegues are able to gather around a table, to share in a true culinary experience. The menu features a variety of small, medium and large plates that lends to sharing, as is customary in both Korean and Italian culture.

Great little spot. Food was fresh. You need to walk in, order and then then meal is brought to you. Hands off service but the food was good and the server was cordial.

Unique food was tasty and well priced. Noise of fan running made it a little difficult to hear.

Really enjoyed our recent dining experience at Gather. Interior design was fresh and modern, service was thoughtful and attentive. The food was the big star though, Fried tofu was so great I would have licked the plate if I was not out in public. I had the carbonara dish while my husband had the rice bowl. Both were excellent. Highly recommend.

We have recommended many friends and they have all loved Gather. Amazing and unique dining experience. The chef is an artist. One of our favourite dining destinations in Kelowna.

Good happy hour specials but menu is quite limited with mismanaged combinations of ingredients and flavors. Chief seems confused.
Not recommended.

We enjoyed the food, as it was an Asian theme, and we all had some very different menu choices, compared to other restaurants. The actual menu itself, though, was very small and a little difficult to read for us seniors. LOL The waiter was very attentive and he even offered us some free croissants to take home, which we appreciated. I would recommend this restaurant.

With great food and service, a great place to go pre-cultural event due to location.

Heard great things about Gather and finally got to go. It didn't disappoint. The menu is very limited, but what is there, is amazing. The Poke bowl was outstanding and my husband loved the Schnitzel. The place was more casual than I expected but it still had great ambience. All in all, a great place to go. Highly recommend.

They accepted reservations, but the restaurant was closed during normal business hours, without warning or explanation.

Hi Dave, I am terribly sorry this was a technical error on our end. We were closed for a private catering but the system opened up to reservations as we did not shut it down properly. I also noticed that the sign that was meant to be put on the door was removed. I am terribly sorry. I would love to host you on us for your next visit please email me. I will private message you my email. Luigi

Every item on the menu is a taste sensation! My personal favourites are the bibimbap, spicy crispy quinoa tofu, spaghetti carbonara with a Korean twist, the incredibly tender pork belly and the superbly refreshing green salad and the must have pastries. Everything is beautifully presented. I love that my friends with nut allergies, gluten sensitivity and/or vegetarian can eat there. The staff are wonderful and Owner/Chef Sung is pure genius. “You gotta eat here!”

The food was quite interesting and I can't say I've ever had anything like it before. Their iteration of the bibimbap was quite good.

Price was also reasonable for the food. Would definitely come back again.

We booked a table for 12 to celebrate a birthday. Everyone loved their food, which was creative and absolutely delicious. The service was outstanding - the waitress even went the extra measure to go across the street to get candles for the birthday cake! All in all, a great place to hold our celebration and one we'd recommend. Currently, the restaurant closes at 8:00 pm on Saturday night, which might explain the lack of patrons. We booked for 7:00 without realizing this, but the staff happily stayed longer for us. (The early closing time isn't obvious on Open Table.)

A little bit confused by this place. They mean well and I hope they do succeed. It’s a a bit of everything. Morning coffee, juices, fried Italian/Korean fusion (aka lots of deep fried), fresh oysters, and lots of whiskey with just one beer on tap. Feels a little mixed up. A casual meeting place to support the innovation centre that should perhaps opt to keep it simple

Love this place, the food is well seasoned and tasty. We were there for mother's day lunch, on the Saturday because of work commitment. Portions are generous, we love to keep enjoying the leftovers at home.

The bibimbap very tasty and substantial. The pork schnitzel was a beautifully laid out tray of food. Our mid-week lunch was quiet in the restaurant since it was April.

Great place for business dinner with few vegetarian options. Enjoyed amazing fried gnocchi and outstanding salmon poke bowl, and even leftovers were excellent taken from the fridge next day. Will be coming back soon!
