    Met expectations! Service was maybe TOO attentive, if that' s possible :) It was quiet on our previous visit (weekday evening), but busy this last time (Saturday night) and a bit loud. We love it, and will be back.

    First time we dined here everything was incredible! 5/5 stars all around! Unfortunately, this time was not the same. Service was incredibly slow and multiple of the dishes were just a little bit off.

    I'm sorry you had an underwhelming experience. There's no excuse for that but there is an explanation, half of our staff was out with Covid. The remaining staff did the best they could. Almost everyone is back this week. We hope you'll give us another try.

    Food was amazing, but more importantly the mission of this restaurant to feed people in need is even more important. I highly recommend Gather 55 not just because of the delicious food but because at the same time you help other people to have some food when they can’t afford it. Helping others is just a great concept of a restaurant.

    What a find! For the same price as any West Hartford restaurant, you are contributing to feeding the homeless and hungry. The mission of this restaurant, in conjunction with delicious food and excellent service, means we’ll be back again soon. Try the celery steak. It’s amazing!!

    A lovely meal, with emphasis on quality ingredients perfectly prepared. The menu changes monthly or seasonally, and while I didn't think the current selections had as much "wow factor" as on a previous visit, our server (Ryan) was outstanding. Nice ambience. And it's good to know that the profits from an evening of fine dining are funneled into Hands on Hartford, a comprehensive food and training program for community residents.

    We were excited to try the new December menu. Rob Maffucci’s menu items were good but not great as some of the previous chefs. The music was excellent. The pork chop not the original Billy Grant pork chop. We still give a 5 star rating because of our server Andrea and we will definitely be back! We love the mission and the revolving chef concept.

    We had a spectacular meal at Gather55! There were 4 diners and we sampled 2 choices from each of the 3 courses-one more delicious than the next. However, in addition to the food, the staff is amazing. You are met with a smile and a warm greeting immediately when you arrive and each person you come into contact with is friendly and welcoming. They seem happy to be working there! The manager stopped at our table 3 different times and we had conversations with him about the mission of Gather55 and its unique place among Hartford's restaurants. It's a very good feeling to have an outstanding dining experience while also doing good for our community!

    Delicious!!! We had the most wonderful evening!! The food was top notch and the service was the best we’ve ever had. You really feel so comfortable from the minute you get there, very cozy. Wine was fabulous and the desert OMG. Honestly all the courses (including the butter) were out of this world. I only wish I found it sooner, can’t wait to go back!!

    Food was so good! Our waiter was amazing! There were certain aspects of the space that was lovely(the windows that were glass and Victorian in nature and the paintings) but they need to make better use of that old bat! The brass railing is stunning—— wine bottles stored in the back, maybe. We respect the mission of the restaurant and we would love to return
