3 orders of shrimp and grits. All 3 were cold, grits were undercooked and not enough. 2 orders of catfish, both were hot but greasy.
Restaurant is hit and miss with Inconsistent food.
Sadly, I would go back for the ambiance but not the food. Loved the place itself, but the food was really over salted.
Menu was limited. Food was good. Bread pudding was excellent! I intend to return.
Great service-all around Good food will go back again. Great
We have eaten many times at this location, mainly lunch. Gumbo was just ok, one guest got all chicken in gumbo, one guest got no meat in there’s. Rice in gumbo was cold. Shrimp was over cooked for one guest. The greens were under cooked. Mac and Cheese was cold. We arrived at 5:45, our food was on our table an hour later. The salads were good. The steak was good. The spaghetti was good.
Everything was great! Cooper was our server
The Gathering was definitely more than I expected. It is a beautiful establishment with the perfect tempo for a nice quiet evening which is exactly what I wanted. The food was pricey but good. The service is average. Overall, it was a great experience. I plan to visit again soon.
Friendly, attentive service; delicious appetizers great cocktail, wine, much less crowded mid-week. We will return!
Discovered this lovely place while on vacation. The Redfish was very good, but wasn't very warm when it got to the table. Others in our party said their food wasn't very warm either.
Service was quite slow and after dropping off our food the server checked on us once and never came back to see about refills on drinks.
Our visit was outstanding. We arrived early and the table was ready. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable about the food. The food was hot, perfectly prepared and tasted great. An overall good experience. We will be returning.
The food, though outstanding, was preceded by very poor service due to being understaffed. Waiting almost 30 minutes to place an initial drink order is ridiculous given the price point of the restaurant.
Great evening celebrating our son’s graduation from college! We were pleasantly surprised by live music. The duo was excellent and played a variety of music. The duo added to the already fun, dynamic ambiance. The meal and service were excellent too!
We had family visiting from out of town so five of us came for dinner. I ordered the ahi tuna poke bowl and after 3 bites was not a fan. When the server came to check on the table I told her my feeling on the bowl and that I would not be finishing. She left the table without offering me another option for dinner.
We have always enjoyed The Gathering and was lucky to visit on a night when they had live music which is always fun.
This is our second time going and this time we invited our friends out. They absolutely loved it. The food was really amazing. The staff is so friendly. We all ordered specials. Honestly this is the first time my husband and I made it thru a three course meal. The portions were spot on. Chef can cook!
Fantastic food, service, and atmosphere! The Gathering at Livingston never disappoints!
We loved our entire experience at The Gathering and we especially enjoyed our darling waitress Sarah! She was such a delight and made our experience extra pleasant. We will definitely visit The Gathering on our next trip to Jackson.
Omg! The food was outstanding. I’ve never eaten a three course meal. My husband chose the spinach dip and pita bread for an appetizer. I chose the 8oz filet with asparagus and mash. My husband chose the braised brisket with grits and a corn pico de Gallo mix. The food was phenomenal! We decided to get dessert and I picked she peach cobbler with ice cream. I left stuffed but happy. We enjoyed it and will definitely return sooner than later with friends.
This place is my absolute favorite!! Took my girlfriend here and had a reservation and as soon as we walked in we were greeted and seated !! Service was great and friendly. Food was amazing as always. Would come here every night if I could
WE just learned about this hidden little gem of a restaurant. Maybe the locals don't want the word to get out! Food was excellent and wait staff were friendly, accommodating and attentive. I was under the impression that it was a tiny restaurant and was pleasantly surprised to find that is not the case at all.
Great time helpful staff and a nice atmosphere had a blast
The gathering was a great place a little off the beaten path. Totally worth the trip. The food was absolutely delicious! Do highly recommend you try at least once.
Love the quiet secluded location
The Gathering at Livingston is a restaurant that serves quality food with good service. The entree options are farm to table and therefore seasonal, but with enough variety to please almost any palate.
We have dined at The Gathering many times and can honestly say that we have always enjoyed everything we have been served and have always had excellent service.
Great food, service, and atmosphere. We went on Sun night when they have live music. Lovely family with group of young girls. Food and entertainment were fantastic.
The food was great and the service was helpful and friendly. The Gathering inside was unique, thus why it was called the Gathering. Only bad thing was an issue with the bill and they had bill mixed up with someone else bill and we had to wait to get it settled and then pay.
Great Atmosphere, great service, great ambiance, great place!
Bar was a bit noisy so waitress gave us a different table. Servers were very good but a bit inexperienced. Food was as good as anything I have eaten. Pretty amazed by it.
Nice place. I am definitely coming here when I am back in Jackson
Always an enjoyable experience! Will definitely return.
The only issue we had was reservations. We reserved a table for 2 at 7:30. When we arrived three other couples arrived at the same time. All with the same reservation times. We had to wait nearly 40 min before we were seated. Overall the food and service was great.
From crab appetizer to Redfish special and Salmon entrees our dinner was delicious! So happy to have a wonderful dining experience tonight.
For having just opened since the "pandemic", it was a pretty good experience. I don't understand why they abbreviated their normal menu...
One of the best meals my wife and I have ever enjoyed. Every bite was a flavor bomb.
It’s was delicious but the portion of food was not compenserate with price
Our server Hannah was excellent. Food was fantastic. Excellent presentation of the food. The restaurant has a charm and quaintness that is great.
The fish dishes were spectacular. The salmon was cooked perfectly along with the tender broccolini and rice side dishes. My wife enjoyed her redfish dish as well.
Excellent meal, the hanger steak was perfectly prepared. From start to finish it was a perfect dining experience.
Birthday dinner was great
Booked our New Year’s Eve here and enjoyed The Gathering’s usual fine food, great sips and professional staff wrapped up in a casually chic, festive atmosphere. If OpenTable let’s me, I’ll go ahead and book for next New Years Eve here.
