Vegetarian's dream restaurant

I am definitely an omnivore. I like meat, I like veggies, there's very little I won't eat. That being said, Gather would be the type of place I would eat every day if I could A. afford it, and B. ever became a full-on vegetarian. The first time my husband and I ate at Gather, I had a whole entree... read more

The food and drink was so wonderful. We ordered almost everything off the appetizer menu and a few entrees for a few people. Everything we had was amazing and we would have kept eating if we didn't get full. The space is gorgeous and modern. The location is right by campus and close to everything. Can't wait to go back...

Interesting menu and cocktail list. Good vegetarian choices. Friendly service. Conveniently located just opposite UCal Berkeley campus within a few minutes walk from Downtown Berkeley BART station.

Have eaten here often before the Berkeley Rep. They alas no longer serve my favorite dish - a vegan charcuterie. However, they have very creative salads and often one or two great veggie dish we enjoy. Great cocktail and wine list.

I read about Gather online and made a reservation for a business dinner. We had one of the best meals I've ever had. The asparagus with couscous was divine, with a mushroom/mustard puree that astounds the tongue. The house pickles were interesting and original. The bread is terrific. I had the roasted fish and it was perfectly done, crisp exterior... More

It is a disappointment. Have gone 3 different times, with different people/times/days, and it was ALWAYS a let down. The set up is not comfortable, the food is OK, and the service was snooty. The only outstanding thing I had, once, was a cocktail, but for a restaurant that hypes its sustainable qualities, it's ironic to praise a cocktail. The... More

Our foursome was able to find lots of interesting items to choose from. My wife and I decided to try the kale (first time) salad. We loved it and will try to imitate the recipe at home. My wife had the halibut which she pronounced excellent but pricey. I had the smelt which had a bit too much sand in... More

A quiet table can be had at this trendy and hopping restraunt in the heart of Berkley! We were celebrating a birthday with a small group of three and after reading about the noise I requested a quiet table and our request was honored. After our meal we had a plane to catch and half-way through the first delicious dish... More

Every visit to Gather has been awesome. The spicy tomato pizza with cashew cream is so crispy and perfectly spiced. I'm so sad they stopped making the vegan charcuterie, but their seasonal menu always has something new to try. My boyfriend is a big meat eater and I'm vegan and we can both find a satisfying meal, which is usually... More

We took a chance on calling in for Saturday brunch without a reservation. Must have been lucky - no problem in being seated at 11am. We had a great salad with a poached egg on the side; the whole meal pancakes with blueberries and ricotta and four coffees. The bill at $51 after tax seemed reasonable. We were made to... More
