This restaurant shines in an area with many good places to eat. The menu is varied and always interesting with emphasis on local sourcing. Every time I eat at Gather I'm impressed anew.

The service here is fantastic, the ambiance is lovely, but its the FOOD that brings me back again and again. I love the way this chef puts ingredients together, and the dishes are just enough food - not giant plates full but not skimpy little bits either. This is a restaurant for people who LOVE flavors. I had never ordered... More

After a spending several hours at the Berkeley Botanical gardens we looked for a good place to have a healthy late lunch. Gather fit the bill to a T. They had a great menu and wine selection. We ended up sharing a pizza that was delicious. I just wish I lived closer cause this would become one of my go... More

My two kids and I really enjoyed our meal. We each had a taste of everyone else's choices and all our dishes were excellent. Nice place with friendly service and great food. What more can you ask of a family meal out?

Very good ambiance and food in this restaurant. Definitely recommend the pizza and salads. This place gets busy when the parents of UC Berkeley students are around, especially on weekends, so don't be surprised if there is a long wait during one of these times, but generally it isn't that hard to get in. Very open setting with high ceilings... More

Work took me to the Bay Area recently. My daughters and their families live near in the area. My youngest daughter suggested we try Gather for a meeting/dinner place. They did an excellent job of delicious food whether it was the omnivores, the vegetarians or the vegan. The food was very tasty, the service impeccable and the ambiance delightful. I... More

Had a mezzo mez experience here. Service was totally unimpressive...I sat waiting for a friend for 15 minutes before my server asked if I'd like anything to drink. Once she got there, it took a pretty long time for him to take her order as well. The food was tasty - we shared a salad, pizza and dessert - but... More

My friend who I hadn't seen for a long time, and I met for lunch yesterday. The lunch menu was short but enticing. We ended up having the same dish - mushroom sandwich - to die for. It had a really nice smoky flavour, lots of juices running out and down (be prepared for a bit of a worthy mess).... More

Took my daughter here for her b-day. Food was good but not as good as I had hoped. Very noisy, perhaps because there are too many bare surfaces, nothing to cushion the sound. Definitely expected more organic and vegetarian choices on the menu.

Gather is a great place to try new food and drink. Their cocktails are so yummy! I tried the Chupa Cabra. It was an amazing spicy, tart drink that you could really savor. The entrees are always something you can hardly imagine. Several great pizzas on a delicious thin crust. The wait people are skilled and very helpful, so just... More
