Crunchy Granola Berkeley!

A very Berkeley restaurant. We went for lunch and, because we were in Berkeley, I had the kale salad. Expensive for lunch but good food.

Went for lunch. Had the kale salad and the basic pizza. Both were quite ordinary; I've had better of each many many times. The place is lovely, but if my meal was indicative of their overall quality, they have work to do to start making special meals.

My friends have been raving about Gather's vegan pizza for quite a while so I had to try it. Delicious! Also the cashew sauce was amazing.

We stopped in for dinner, prior to attending Berkeley Rep. We ate here several years ago and had good memories of the food. Maybe it was an off night but my burger was awful. I am quite sure it had been prepared some time before and then put in the microwave to heat up. The fries were equally bad --... More

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... 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
